Browns At Buccaneers Open Thread

August 26th, 2016

bucs cheerleader 0811Welcome to Preseason Game 3. Sorry you have to watch Browns quarterback Josh McCown play football.

Joe is pumped up for this next step toward being finished with nearly meaningless preseason games.  And Joe and the Custodian of Canton, eye-RAH! Kaufman, are at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway eager to deliver A+ postgame coverage.

Bang it here for your thoughts on the game. What player is good; what player should be cut tomorrow; what player should get used to the bench.

Play nice. Personal fouls at not tolerated.

    I’m on my way to pick up my pizza from Papa John’s in my new Ed Morse Cadillac ack ack ack ack.

  2. Buccfan37 Says:

    If McCown leads a Browns long drive for a score the Bucs should hang their heads. Fire this baby up!

  3. orlbucfan Says:

    How do the new video boards look? Also, the new LED rings?

  4. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Its Game day Bucs fans. Here’s a beer hoping for fast starts, a pass rush and no missed kicks

  5. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Fast start finnaly

  6. Broy34 Says:


  7. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Lol I will take that. Quick way for aguayo to get some confidence

  8. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  9. Greg Says:


  10. Greg Says:

    Great start by Winston too

  11. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Though we have to run better. That stuff stalled the drive

  12. Dave Says:

    JW should not have locked in on VJax. Humphries was open.
    Great for the rookie kicker though!

  13. The Buc Realist Says:

    Great start!!!! Changed the offense with all the missing lineman!!!! quick and get it out!!!!

    No injuries!!!!!

    Come on defense!!!!!!!

  14. Kstoges Says:

    That no huddle is deadly love it and BERTO!!!!! excited bucks fan from New York right now

  15. Vegabuc Says:

    Aguayo needed it. As much as I hated the second round pick on a kicker the team needs this man to pan out. Go Bucs

  16. Willy D Buc Says:

    Go, go, Aguayo!!!

  17. DB55 Says:

    Lol the ball is right in front of you son.

  18. Greg Says:

    For every good play grimes makes, he makes a bad one

  19. Vegabuc Says:

    Brent Grimes? I wonder what Miko would say to Josh Gordon

  20. DB55 Says:

    I wouldn’t throw the ball around #28.

    Let’s go D make a play!!!

  21. Vegabuc Says:

    A guy that hasn’t played in 2 years killed him. Damn I wonder what Julio Jones will do to him….

  22. DB55 Says:

    I’ll take it. Way to go Jac!

  23. DB55 Says:


    I’m pretty sure that was zone d w safety help over the top. Put money on it that it was on Conte.

  24. Dave Says:

    Spence is fast

  25. Broy34 Says:

    Vegabuc-absolutely nothing. He’ll never guard Julio

  26. Dave Says:

    Grimes got caught looking in the backfield on a deep double move. Usually that would have a safety over top.
    Not a big deal, it’s preseason

  27. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Spence was supposed to be doubled on that play, he ran around the BEST LT in the game

  28. Vegabuc Says:

    He still got beat like drum. Just hope he is not lined up vs Jones or Benjamin. Otherwise they might as well play Hargraves as # one corner.

  29. sb_demon Says:

    Good slide Winston!

  30. ARGH_M8E Says:

    lets go u swashbucklers!!!! Do work!!!!!! Big kick for Bobby A

  31. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Winston with the legs

  32. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Winston continues to make plays w his feet

  33. sb_demon Says:

    Really missing Marpet on runs.

  34. Vegabuc Says:

    Winston looked fast damn it. I loved it

  35. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    We look sharp

  36. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    ASJ getting a good block on that throw

  37. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Wes welker doin work… I mean Adam hump

  38. sb_demon Says:

    Man o-line so banged up …

  39. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Damn Hawley I hope he is good

  40. DB55 Says:

    Looks like Simms improving his power running. That’s great.

  41. Vegabuc Says:

    Get Hawley out of that game! Offensive line man starting to fall like leaves.

  42. MadMax Says:

    So far so good…..

  43. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Hump is CLUTCH

  44. DB55 Says:

    #whiteboypower. Go wb go wb go!

  45. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I though that Browns helmet was a fumble by Sims lol

  46. DB55 Says:

    This is the slowest thread I’ve ever seen at JBF.

  47. MadMax Says:

    NICE TD JW AND SIMMS!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Vegabuc Says:

    Winston looking quick on his feet!

  49. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Winston has looked mighty fine so far

  50. DB55 Says:

    Go JW go JW go.

  51. Vegabuc Says:


  52. Frank Da Buc Says:

    Hell Mother Efiin Yesssssss!!!!!! Lovin this
    Goooooo Buuucccsssss!!!!!

  53. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I like this 1st quarter but let’s not forget this is the browns

  54. Dave Says:

    Not to be negative but on that TD VJax and I think Evans were covered and just stood there. Didn’t try to break free to an open spot. Maybe they didn’t have time because the scramble the other direction.
    Not sure

  55. Dave Says:

    But…. Great play by JW keeping it slice and Simms to get open

  56. bucs_fan13 Says:

    Winston got hit hard. That scares me every time. Don’t get hurt man!! Its preseason!!

  57. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Pass blocking is really good so far! Let’s see if the oline can get the run blocking going next. 😀

  58. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Looking great so far on offense! Jameis in mid season form. Adam Humphries also playing really well!

  59. MadMax Says:

    Guys, pay attention…..dont expect a lot this year… year we’ll be in the running

  60. DB55 Says:

    Ref never call roughing on JW. That was a hit to the head and it was a late hit.

  61. MadMax Says:

    TD HUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  63. 10-6 or bust Says:

    Holy $hitttttttttttttt

  64. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Humpries just locked down punt returner!!

  65. Last Buc Fan Says:

    Touchdown. Humphries!!!

  66. Vegabuc Says:

    This guy Humphries is a studd.

  67. Dave Says:

    I was just about to say I don’t like Humph returning Punts. Your slot receiver does not need another reason to get injured
    Then bam!!

  68. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:


  69. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I think Humphries has earned more playing time!

  70. DB55 Says:

    Go whiteboy go whiteboy go. Say whaaaaa?!!!?!!?

  71. Frank Da Buc Says:

    Adam the mother effin man Humphries

  72. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Dang I’ve seen the increased quickness but has Humphries found another gear in the off season?

  73. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    3 for 3 aguayo

  74. Chris Says:

    Who said Humphries has no speed

  75. sb_demon Says:

    Every phase contributing. Really solid effort!

  76. 10-6 or bust Says:

    Clicking on all cylinders next drive run the ball so our defense can get a rest

  77. MadMax Says:

    Punt return HUMP…….our guy is HUMP……HAHAHA, Im loving seeing him do so good

  78. DB55 Says:

    The Browns punter though 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  79. cmurda Says:

    Woohoo. Now this is what we want to see in the 3rd preseason game. Winston is looking great, Hump is proving why there is no doubt that he’s our 3rd receiver, special teams has been on point and defense has looked the part. Would like to see a bit more pressure from D Line. And, of course Aguayo can maybe get some positive mojo going. Love it boys.

  80. Chris Says:

    He wanted no part of tackling in the pre season

  81. cmurda Says:

    Punter could have cut Hump off although I think Hump still would have scored but that’s not smart when you are trying to win a punting job.

  82. DB55 Says:

    17-3 after the first? Say whaaaaa?!?! #itsthebrowns

  83. MarineBucsFan Says:

    OMG!!! I have seen enough, take all starters out Dirk. These boys ready.

  84. MadMax Says:

    Alright throw the 2nd’s and 3rd’s in……we have a nice lead, make them hold it.

  85. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Hump has earned his spot. Much respect!

  86. The bucfan 88 Says:

    Okay what Adam the madman humpries can’t do

  87. bucs_fan13 Says:

    Pull out the starters. That is a wrap.

  88. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Wheres the pressure Dline???

  89. Mahabone Says:

    agreed……starters need to come out! Lets protect our guys Dirk.

  90. rb Says:

    Where are the “mortar” kickoffs? on the other hand, where are the buc penalties…

  91. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Ok defense

  92. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Browns actually have a good o line

  93. Vegabuc Says:

    Get Jameis out of there after this drive please

  94. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:


  95. MadMax Says:


  96. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    VJAX working the rookies

  97. Jerry G Says:

    I think Aguayo just needed to be in the home stadium for some that 48yd field goal!

  98. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Someone tell Sims to stop all the jukin?

  99. bucs_fan13 Says:

    Leave Jameis ALONEEEEE

  100. MadMax Says:

    Nice! a flag went our way!

  101. Jerry G Says:

    So far no penalties on our Bucs!

  102. Vegabuc Says:

    Get Jameis out of there DAMN IT

  103. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Get ME13 involved

  104. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Dotson whiffed BIG TIME! Lucky Fameis has great insticts!

  105. MadMax Says:

    Roberto will be fine….its nervous jitters, i think even Jameis still has them…lol

  106. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Have we cut that bust Aguayo yet?

  107. Vegabuc Says:


  108. MadMax Says:

    Haha, well played Stpete

  109. Gt40bear Says:

    Smith just got schooled by the Rook Ogbah! He better thank Jameis for bailing him out.

  110. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Never have I been soooo happy for FG’s

  111. MadMax Says:

    Roberto is feeling it tonight….thats what we want brother!

  112. Chris Says:

    Still hate the pick, but hopefully he’s put his stuff behind him

  113. DB55 Says:

    @mike Johnson & BIGHOG

    Boy this team looks sooooooooooo much worse than any team Lovie put on the field. Yikes!!

  114. MadMax Says:

    SACK GHOLSTON!!! Get it big guy!

  115. DB55 Says:

    Holds are just as good as sacks to me. I’ve counted 4 sacks thus far.

  116. Vegabuc Says:

    I’m kind of worried with this defense stoping the run though. Hope they get it straight before Atlanta

  117. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Finally a real sack

  118. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Run stuffer +

  119. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  120. DB55 Says:

    Make that 5

  121. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Yessssssssss ahahagafa lets goooooo

  122. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Now we need a hookup between Friffin III AND Hargreaves III

  123. MadMax Says:

    Another sack inside baby!!!!!!!!!! Hell YES!!!!!!!!!

    4th sack of the night!!!!

  124. ARGH_M8E Says:

    #4 sack

  125. The bucfan 88 Says:

    Cam better get sum Iciy hot ready that all I got to say

  126. DB55 Says:


  127. MadMax Says:

    Thats a fumble recovery!

  128. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Yes, that was a fumble and smith recovered. Can this get any better?

  129. NJBucsFan Says:

    D-Line is looking fierce. McCoy popped the ish out of RGIII

  130. The Buc Realist Says:

    Even though it is Cleveland, its still nice to see the Bucs Manhandled a team!!!!

  131. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    That NASCAR package looks good

  132. MadMax Says:


  133. DB55 Says:

    Let Howard jones get a try w the 1st team.

  134. MadMax Says:

    Damn that was a TD ME….out of bounds 🙁

  135. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Ok ME13 Winston dropped that in a bucket

  136. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    What a pass! Shoulda been a TD!

  137. DB55 Says:

    What I tell you. What have I said? Get the ball out in front. #RandyMossII

  138. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Lost his balance

  139. Bobby Says:

    I’ve been telling you guys for a long time that once we got an edge rush you’d see how good McCoy really is.

  140. MadMax Says:

    agreed Bobby, D line will beast this year!

  141. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Evans has a faster gear

  142. MadMax Says:

    TD ME13!!!!!!!!!!!!

  143. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  144. DB55 Says:

    You can’t stop him you can only hope to contain him. And the ball was still short.

    Doing my Patti LaBelle impersonation!

  145. MadMax Says:

    Alright, come on guys, pull the starters!!!!!

  146. firethecannons Says:

    Holy Sh woohoo–this is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  147. BoJim Says:

    That Humphrey’s guy seems to be pretty good. Not comparing him to Welker yet but he works extra hard and seems to be on the right track. I’m in Austin and it’s on national tv!!!!! I’m glad my wife is out of town tonight because she would make me feel guilty for watching any kind of sports. Yes she’s that intimidating. Go Bucs!!!! Fan since 76′. I’m old!!!! Who cares???? What? Another TD? I’m in heaven!!!

  148. cmurda Says:

    Wow. You ask for M.E. to get involved and in the blink of an eye he’s at 4 catches 100 yds and a touch. Hells yeah boys.

  149. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    How do you go 85 yards in 3 plays??? Fameis Jameis to Mike Evans thats how!!!

  150. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    F##k aggressive catch that cracked me up @Hire Jumbo. Loving the connection tho

  151. cmurda Says:

    LMAO @ BoJim.

  152. Vegabuc Says:

    Mike is not droping the ball. Jameis throwing the deep ball with touch and accuracy. Licking my fingers already. My ecxitometer is warming up!

  153. Rojas Says:

    Nfl has mike Evans having 5 catches and, 123 yards

  154. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Lol Jameis answered my prayer

  155. iamabuc Says:

    Wow, Mike Evans disrespected that cover guy! Uff….looking giod, my biys!

  156. MadMax Says:

    Get her back Bo!….intimidate her back!

  157. The bucfan 88 Says:

    Lol Joe are u sure kotter didn’t game plan lol

  158. Magic Marpet Says:

    Is this what our offense looks like when they get some time on the field? God I can’t wait for the season. The Browns are the Browns but it’s still fun to see.

  159. Chris Says:

    Now I know how the Falcons felt when Koetter put that arse whooping on us a few years ago

  160. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Start at 25 dont matter if there’s a 3 & out.

  161. iamabuc Says:

    ….looking good, my boys…. (sorry)

  162. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Pressure getting to RG3

  163. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Aww a dawg got pounded to the ground!

  164. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Payton barber looks good

  165. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    ST test now

  166. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Bad angles. 3 guys were right there

  167. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Grimes woulda had that!

  168. Vegabuc Says:

    Anger kicks it like he is Angry

  169. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    That was offensive pass interference

  170. Capt.Tim Says:

    This offense is gonna be fun to watch!!

  171. The bucfan 88 Says:

    Lol okay it’s time to put the back ups In im happy lol

  172. cmurda Says:

    Browns scored. Helped in large part by an obvious push off by Gordon but hey, let’s just give it to them right refs?

  173. Broy34 Says:

    Did he flop or get pushed.

  174. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Nice push off by Gordon

  175. Last Buc Fan Says:

    He pushed off.

  176. Vegabuc Says:

    Miko looked pretty bad there. That’s what I meant DB55. Grimes can’t cover a tall receiver my fellas. Get used to seeing this

  177. TheRealDrew Says:

    Arm extension push by Gordon there.

  178. cmurda Says:

    2 offensive PI’s on that drive. The first one Grimes would have picked and that one Grimes was in perfect position for when Gordon pushed him. Refs have to be feeling pity.

  179. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Alright offense don’t pack it up yet. Get them points back

  180. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Wheres Bucnut to talk smack about Winston padding his stats? LMAO. Go Bucs! Go Winston!

  181. Vegabuc Says:

    No he got beat by a bigger faster receiver. Get Hargreaves in. That’s why you drafted him.

  182. Magic Marpet Says:

    Evans is snatchin em

  183. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Big body ME13

  184. Broy34 Says:

    Why Evans is catching passes and getting hurt this late in a FLAWLESS offensive game is beyond me

  185. MadMax Says:

    SPAWN SACK!!!!!!

  186. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Noah Spence showing up.

  187. DB55 Says:


    It’s bath time. Didn’t see the play but will trust you.

  188. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Omg we are calling our timeouts before the half so we can try to score. Very anti Lovie. Lol

  189. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Wow..this woman is happy tonight. So happy for Roberto! And our offense and our defense and special’s like PERFECT!!!!!!!

    Just heard hue is pulling his starters out..I just don’t want to lose this game..the momentum is mind blowing tonight..

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!

  190. cmurda Says:

    No way Vega. Gordon pushed off. I saw it clearly. Grimes is small and it only takes a little push off to get him off course. I never count on a penalty, so it is what it is.

  191. Stpetematt Says:

    Super impressed with this game. A total team effort thus far and Winston has thrown some gorgeous passes!

  192. cmurda Says:

    With that said Vega, I agree Hargreaves will be our guy.

  193. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Aguayo, you GO boy!!!!!

  194. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    That aguayo half time special was cool

  195. Defense Rules Says:

    Thought bunches of media folks kept telling us our receivers stink. Looks to me like we’ve got at least 3 pretty decent ones in VJax, Evans and Humphries.

  196. Broy34 Says:

    HES BACK(wedding crashes) -Robert Aguayo is back folks

  197. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    You got that right Jimbo real nice. Maybe he’ll get more of that kind of coverage instead of hoping he’ll miss a kick

  198. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Donteea Dye is out for the rest of the game after hurting his hamstring

  199. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Next year we need to go WR and safety in the first 2 rounds. What do u guys think about us taking JOEY BOSA in next year’s draft? Cuz that looks like where that is going.

  200. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Attendance sucks for a nationally televised game! Guess football can wait in Tampa Bay

  201. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Preseason. Overpriced.

  202. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    That guy is same size as Grimes why he didn’t jam him? Division 2!

  203. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Wow our 1sts against their 2nds. Not good

  204. HIRE JIMBO Says:


  205. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Where we gonna pick?

  206. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Idk maybe top 15, but BOSA may fall being a year older and out of football

  207. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bucs only have 1 penalty

  208. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Ha ha you see Ayers sweeping them back😁

  209. joeblockedlme Says:

    Where are all the people that said Adams Humphrey would not be a star for the Bucs?

  210. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    McClown feels the Wrath of Kwon!

  211. 911bucs Says:

    KA58 beast mode

  212. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I wouldn’t say Adams Humphrey’s been a star. Reliable maybe.

  213. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Wow all these stupid penalties. Dare I say it? The Browns look like the Bucs.

  214. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  215. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Phil Sims REALLY likes the Bucs now!

  216. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Glennon sucks

  217. The bucfan 88 Says:

    Dang Glennon trash

  218. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Hey Joeblocked me what was your old screen name?

  219. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Finally Banks with pass break up

  220. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Storm Johnson just got cut

  221. Broy34 Says:

    You could tell how shaken banks’ confidence was by Lovie by the late reaction to both his attempt to knock the ball out and then to celebrate. The guy just doesn’t know or didn’t know how to play loose in the league or in practice even. Maybe after a big 3rd down single handed stop of a drive will change his outlook. Nobody up his ass yeah he’s the 5th corner but he’s gonna make the team maybe

  222. DB55 Says:


    Yea NAH KID. the was perfect coverage. Gordon pushed grimes in the back. Obvious PI. It’s all good though.

    All I know is I’m getting a #57 jersey. #SPAWN

  223. Bob in Valrico Says:

    the chemistry between Evans and Jameis is great in this one. Jameis is putting nice touch on his passes and Evans is adjusting to ball and clamping down on it.This should awnswer questions about how good they can be together,if they keep it up.I expect it!

  224. Bob in Valrico Says:

    great job protecting Winston by our O-line.

  225. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Those video boards are HUGE

  226. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    WHAAAT Kenny Bell finally got a catch!

  227. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Any1 play madden 17 on Xbox 1?

  228. Dreambig Says:

    wow a catch by Kenny Bell!

  229. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    2nd teams for a readon for Glennon

  230. Dreambig Says:

    Thats why Glennon is a backup. why even throw that stupid pass? Even if Bell would have caught it, it would have been 3 yards short.

  231. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Bogus PI

  232. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    McClown sang Me and Mr Jones!

  233. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Nice retun by reedy

  234. Capt Blighe Says:

    One disappointment, Grimes

  235. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    How are you 8 foot tall and get passes batted down?

  236. Dreambig Says:

    Roberto is back!

  237. joeblockedlme Says:

    DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:
    August 26th, 2016 at 10:11 pm
    Hey Joeblocked me what was your old screen name?


  238. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    I remember you. Hope Joe don’t hold grudges!

  239. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I’m tired and 87 is right, lol, you should know by now that Bucnut2 doesn’t come around these parts when Winston plays well. Saw him last week, go figure.
