Buccaneers-Redskins Open Thread

August 31st, 2016

bucs cheerleader 0811Welcome to Preseason Game 4. Well, it’s better than Rosanne reruns.

Joe is pumped up to end the season of meaningless preseason games.

Bang it here with comments on the game. What player should not be cut tomorrow; who inevitably gets injured, which cheerleaders looks good while soaked, etc.

Play nice. Personal fouls at not tolerated.

    First comment

  2. Gt40bear Says:

    Our high school’s JV game got cancelled for tomorrow night so I’m glad the NFL has obliged me with one of their own! Always like the last game for the underdog feel good stories. Go Bucs! Stay healthy!!

  3. iamkingsu Says:

    I don’t see Noah spence on the inactive list. Please tell me I’m wrong

  4. Jason Says:

    They just showed Spence warming up…. He’d better not touch the damn field

  5. DB55 Says:

    I think Noah is just out the for the national anthem and when it’s OVER he’ll sit down on the bench.

  6. iamkingsu Says:

    Tell me their not letting spence play tonight in the pouring rain where u can’t gain any traction?? Management is getting on hell of a email in the morning

  7. Larry Says:

    How about getting some rainy game experience? Ray Jay has a great field, it’s not like their playing in Canton.

  8. DB55 Says:

    Personally I’d prefer to forfeit the game and get ready for Atl. But that’s just silly talk.

  9. Td561 Says:

    Game blacked out in south Florida….. For a re-run of Barry Sanders A Football Life 😑

  10. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Run defense is do do

  11. Gt40bear Says:

    I know it is backups and the weather sucks but this inability to stop the run throughout preseason is beginning to concern me!

  12. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    25 players sitting out the game. Noah Spence is a backup, so he plays

  13. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Any of you down there in that weather and actually at that game get a Suoer fan gold star! Seriously though, I know a lot of us enjoy bickerong back and forth here on the forum about players and everything Bucs, but for those in the cross hairs of the storm be safe down there. Flooding is nothing to take lightly.

  14. celly Says:

    nice throw by Glennon.

    good defense by the DB.

    need Glennon to have a great game tonight. this is his Vikings audition.

  15. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Hey don’t blame Glwnnon for that play…pass was where it was there to be caught and not a check down

  16. celly Says:


    I thought that locals had to watch it on the local channel and NOT on NFL network.

  17. BuccoDav Says:

    Dammit, Glennon! Why can’t you make these guys catch your passes?

  18. Kobe Faker Says:

    Rookie head coach mistake

    What the he’ll you doing with these starters doing out there


  19. This Guy Right Here Says:

    The Neck threw it in there perfect, Thats on Shep

  20. SB with Jameis Says:

    That one was on Shep not MG

  21. BucFan20 Says:

    Not if you look at it through tmax glasses.

  22. This Guy Right Here Says:


  23. BuccoDav Says:


  24. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Came out soft against the run, but our pass D is gonna be our bread n butter

  25. K2 Says:

    Looking for WR to make a play!

  26. Harley Says:

    Is there a reason why NFL Network are using the Redskins commentary for a Bucs home game?

  27. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Tmaxcon just cheered lol

  28. This Guy Right Here Says:


  29. celly Says:

    come one Glennon, it might be wet, but you gotta hold on to that rock

  30. JonBuc Says:

    There’s Garo Glennon….same thing happened against Panthers a few seasons ago and you knew he just didn’t have it.

  31. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Lol trade that. MG8 bloopers

  32. eric Says:

    how in the hell is Cameron (Can’t Block) Brate haven’t caught one meaningful pass in the Preseason our starting TE are you freaking kidding me!!!

  33. celly Says:


    I believe it’s because the Redskins are the away team. I’ve normally seen NFLN do that (at least on the preseason game replays. they’d usually switch to the home team commentary in the second half).

  34. This Guy Right Here Says:

    There goes any chance for a 2nd round offer

  35. sb_demon Says:

    So sloppy. Hope no one gets hurt.

  36. celly Says:


    I think you’re mistaken. Those of us (me included) that DON’T believe that Glennon has IT to be a QB are hoping that he some how pulls it together tonight.

    This is his big audition to the rest of the league, specifically the Vikings. If he can’t put something good on film tonight, our chances of getting something for him vs losing him for nothing, goes WAY down.

  37. Harley Says:

    @celly thanks for confirming

  38. This Guy Right Here Says:

    jesus christ mohammed…

  39. celly Says:

    forward progress stopped???

  40. sb_demon Says:

    Reedy … I mean regardless of the call that was just absurd.

  41. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    Looks like someone won’t make the final 53. Two muffs in a row on punts…not good

  42. sb_demon Says:

    Glennon and co. need to manufacture some kind of drive. This is just sad.

  43. Douglas Sean O'Connor Says:

    Bell makes team sitting on the bench

  44. Ed Kerber Says:

    Reedy is done. Glennon too.

  45. celly Says:

    man, we should could fix that returner position with a trade with the Vikings for a certain someone….

    just sayin

  46. This Guy Right Here Says:

    Like Osama said in 2001, I cant wait till Sept 11.

  47. Kobe Faker Says:




  48. celly Says:

    horrible tackling effort.

  49. sb_demon Says:

    Well at least Spence kept pursuing.

  50. MadMax Says:

    Bye Reedy….and we’ll be lucky to get a 5th for MG8 with the way he’s playing right now….no vision!

  51. SB with Jameis Says:

    Negative 3 freakin Yards…… in a QUARTER?

  52. Ed Kerber Says:

    Run D is sad

  53. MadMax Says:

    That was in HORRIBLE taste GUY!!!! WTH man?!

  54. sb_demon Says:

    Yup SB with Jameis -3 yards. MGM must be fuming. Can’t blame the weather when the Redskins are able to move the ball.

  55. Gt40bear Says:

    Don’t give a great hot damn if they are backups, people need to get CUT now after that putrid display! My GAWD that was Horrible!

  56. Kobe Faker Says:

    “LOL” Major Wright

  57. ElioT Says:

    Yep, no cause for concern at DT Joes!

  58. BuccoDav Says:

    This Guy Right Here Says:
    August 31st, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Like Osama said in 2001, I cant wait till Sept 11.

    Well, aren’t you a special kind of a$$hole.

  59. This Guy Right Here Says:

    yeah, I know Max…. felt like an asshole as soon as I hit send…

  60. Gt40bear Says:

    Ok, who the hell plays in Tampa every day and who plays in Washington? Bucs act like they’ve NEVER even seen rain or wet ball before! At least there is a Bond marathon on Encore!

  61. sb_demon Says:

    Anger has already won the job at punter. Let’s try to get the rest of the team going already.

  62. This Guy Right Here Says:


    Like Hillary on Sept 11 2002…

    I dont know what youre talkin about.

  63. Mahabone Says:

    pathetic display of our depth tonight

  64. Harley Says:

    Mike James looks like the #3 back – these other guys can’t run or catch

  65. This Guy Right Here Says:


  66. Mahabone Says:

    imo…we’re 2 drafts away

  67. sb_demon Says:

    Noah Spence has looked quick of the edge.

  68. Dave Says:

    When will cuts be announced?

  69. NJBucsFan Says:

    Maybe we need to trade for a backup qb

  70. celly Says:

    good news MGMers.

    It looks like your golden child will be here for this year at least.

    And with the tape he’s put on as of late, he might be here next year, too…


  71. JonBuc Says:

    Agreed Celly…hope you’re wrong @ next season though. 🙂

  72. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Got to see Noah Spence speed in almost chasing down that TD run.

    Otherwise what a waste of pixels! Even for a football junkie!

    Here is the best stat of the night and easily the highlight will be if Koetter comes to the postgame presser and says well we got through with no injuries!

  73. PRBucFan Says:

    Griffin will be our backup moving forward after this season.

    ASJ is out there too. Looks like Koetter wants to see if he really has anything to offer.

  74. LovieBall Says:

    They should be making cuts during the game.

  75. BuccoDav Says:

    Other than the, umm, fumble.. Glennon put the ball in excellent spots to be caught. You can’t blame the drops onnhim.

  76. Gt40bear Says:

    Usually I really do like watching the 4th PS game but this is SO hideously painful, I’m gone. Thunderball here I come. Nite all.

  77. Kobe Faker Says:

    I wonder if we should give our 3rd round draft pick to the Vikings for Shaun hill


  78. vortexx66 Says:

    ASJ is going to be cut! Very poor effort so far on his part. Future car salesman.

  79. Mahabone Says:


  80. gilhealy Says:

    I think these RB’s were told to gain one yard and hit the deck.

  81. Clemmy Says:

    Disgusted at some of Lovie’s boys effort, not really surprising…

    On the Brown touchdown run, Banks just gave up. A defensive player should be angry about a big run and try to get him regardless. Especially if you are trying to save your job.

    Then ASF tips the ball up, ok with that, given a high but catchable ball and the rain. What is unforgivable is him just standing there after. The Washington player cared enough to catch it, why not ASF? ASF didn’t even bother to step over to touch him. Even pee wee football players know a “tip drill.”

  82. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Bell caught a game pass!

  83. mixxx31 Says:

    Kenny Bell caught a pass y’all!!

  84. MadMax Says:

    Dang, nice throw and catch Griffin and Bell!!!

  85. JMN Says:

    Kenny Bell made a catch! He was holding onto that ball like white on rice.

  86. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    The cheerleaders might be putting the best moves on tape of all Buccaneers this first half. Thankfully the game doesn’t count other than an evaluation tool.

  87. BuccoDav Says:

    WTH. Why can’t we run the football?

  88. Clemmy Says:

    Banks just ran along to the side on that Brown run as well, didn’t even try to get on the tackle..

  89. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Nice corner blitz by Robinson

  90. Buc1987 Says:

    Was I right? 1,388 fans. Sup Maxie!

  91. Kobe Faker Says:

    ” I’m like genital herpes. You can try to hide me but you can’t kill me” Kenny bell

  92. ElioT Says:

    How bad is Ronde Barber? Jesus…

    Love the guy but, damn dude.

  93. SB with Jameis Says:

    I can’t watch this anymore guys. See you ALL Next Sunday!!!
    GO BUCS!!!!

  94. Buc1987 Says:

    Wait I predicted like 1,888 or something fans would show up.

    NOS…oh man…

    “Some here are not big fans of pre season. I am and this is why. Me personally all look for is some continuity from my staters. The pre season for me is huge when the second teamers enter the game. That is where you gauge the quality of dept. When your second team dominates the opposing teams second team then you’re on to something. Tune in tonight see for yourselves what I’m talking about.”

    Well you said you liked it when we quoted you. Are you pleased with tonight’s game so far? Ha ha ha

  95. 10-6 or bust Says:

    Poor asj koetter is really socking it to him. This is chance to show what he’s got or potentially a trade audition he’s leaving him out there with bottom of the barrell guys who can’t even get him the ball. I would me upset too. Him and Kenny bell have not gotten a fair shake. Our backup qbs are a big concern trade mike glennon for a fourth and cordarelle Patterson . You would be lucky to get a ham sandwich . His time on the bench has really made him regress . I must admit I used to think he was qb of of the future big fan . His rookie season slinging it all over in the preseason

  96. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Why is spence still in the game.TAKE HIM THE F#CK OUT

  97. 10-6 or bust Says:

    Keep j banks he’s better than Verner and Jude definitely playing favorites out there

  98. Poor Glennon Says:

    LOL getting all excited about the preseason. People Cam Newton has looked like crap in preseason. The redskins have 1 passing yard by the way

  99. BucTrooper Says:

    Griff throws like Uncle Rico. He has this little chicken wing motion.

  100. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I’ll say it again and again..we NEED to get a backup QB…I don’t like to criticise a player but jesus m christopher Glennon is not our answer..

  101. Ed Kerber Says:

    Ok we know that depth is still not good enough. Maybe we should cut down to 45 and pick up some cast offs. Need backup QB, punt returner, WR, DT, and safety.

  102. 10-6 or bust Says:

    Glennon for hill straight up

  103. Armybucsfan Says:

    Wow I hope dirk rips into them in the locker room. Omfg.

  104. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    That commentary was HORRIBLE. Hope they switch it up at half time.

  105. Buc1987 Says:

    I shut it off. Is Noah still out there?

  106. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Mike Glennon is our backup. He’s been playing with backups this whole preseason.

  107. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh it’s only half time…

  108. Buc1987 Says:

    The Redskins 2nd and 3rd stringers know how to handle a wet ball better than us.

  109. Poor Glennon Says:

    There hasn’t been a ball thrown past 10 yards downfield

  110. Buc1987 Says:

    Okay MGM….The Redskins 2nd and 3rd string RB’s and QB’s know how to handle a wet ball better than us.

  111. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Spence might be out there to give him practice on a wet field. For defensive ends its tough to turn the corner when it’s wet. It’s also a injury risk so I’d take him out.

  112. Rojas Says:

    Safe to say Griffin wouldn’t make any other roster if he was cut the way he’s been playing

  113. Rrsrq Says:

    I get it, quick turn around, really wet conditions, but I have not seen a half that bad since I coached my kids pee wee football team. You would think that the players would know that this could be the last time they don an NFL uniform, at some point pride or survival kicks in. The sad part about the defense, most of those guys are not in there first year with the exception of N. Spence, R. Smith and Luke Rhodes. Where is the great Danny Vitale (oh each, he was a 6th round pick)

  114. Poor Glennon Says:

    See you guys convinced me to watch preseason football. After the first half i no longer have the gift of sight.

  115. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m worried that we are wearing out our punter’s leg….we should ha ve kept our other punter just for tonight….

    Our lines are playing terrible…..both of them…

  116. Dave Says:

    Can’t believe some of you are watching this. I have not watched anyone preseason game besides game 3 since I used to have season tix and they forced you to pay for that crap at full price.
    I watched last week and that’s all I need. Ready for opening day!!!

  117. Buc1987 Says:

    TBBF…Pablo could have filled in at Punter if just for tonight.

  118. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    F#CK same old garbage a $s commentary.

  119. Poor Glennon Says:

    Ahhhhhh preseason the mvp of the night. Probably gets cut tommorow.

  120. BucFan20 Says:

    Are you really stupid enough to come here and make fun of fans? Then you can’t spell any one preseason game? If we want to want to watch that is our option just like yours not to. Tool!

  121. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I always watch every game

  122. Jason Says:

    I gotta have this crap muted. Theisman can go get bent

  123. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo is having one of his best table dancing nights ever (on break now)…..Buc fans in uniform claiming to be at the game are here with Pablo instead….Pablo doesn’t even have to compete with the TV broadcast…….Pablo is glad the Bucs don’t score or get close enough for a field goal….Pablo doesn’t want El Asesino to wear out his leg”

  124. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Aguayo with a 50 BURGER IN THE RAIN

  125. Jason Says:

    BOOM baby! 50 years FG…. Good!

  126. Jason Says:


  127. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Yea baby! 50 yarder in a tropical storm! Agauyo has more yards than our offense!

  128. Tut Says:

    Defense depth is needed bad! Almost if not more than WR depth…

  129. celly Says:

    the biggest and best takeaway of the night was seeing Agauyo hitting a 50yd FG in wet conditions.

    that HAS to boost his confidence.

  130. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I watch EVERY game, every snap..I am a TRUE fan..will root for the bubble players that I like..

    Those who are critical about us watching..well you are a wee jobbie..

  131. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Yea, celly! That’s all I needed to see from tonight’s game!

  132. Armybucsfan Says:

    Our defensive front hasn’t done jack. Can we just fire the entire 3nd team defense?

  133. K2 Says:

    Banks is better than Robinson

  134. Poor Glennon Says:

    Did i just read that right R Kelly has run for 85 yards on my Bucs.

  135. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    Saw Jon Gruden congratulating the Skins QB after that last almost TD pass.

  136. K2 Says:

    Bell misses opportunity

  137. Buccfan37 Says:

    I hate the Redskins, their fans and their coach. They’re like blah. That whole division sucks.

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

    Bell is gone. He plays like Jane under the lights.

  139. ATrain Says:

    Bell Can’t Catch..

    ASJ showing his true skill…Nothing

  140. LovieBall Says:

    Bell looked like he had a reason to be put on reserve after that one.

  141. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    Catch the damn ball Kenny!!!!!! Your job is on the line!!!

  142. BuccoDav Says:

    How the he’ll does the defense go off sides on a punt?

  143. Jeffbuc Says:

    That’s a shame that I have to pay $65 to watch this crap.

  144. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Pre season guys. Some good young WRs WILL BE CUT from other teams and we can scoop them up. I think this whole game was very BLAH by design to keep from getting injuries

  145. Jeffbuc Says:

    Why is dirk worried about keeping griffin. He is horrible it is hard to watch. I agree with ASJ yellin get him off the field.

  146. BuccoDav Says:

    It looks like it hurts ASJ every time he catches a pass.

  147. Rrsrq Says:

    ASJ must feel like he is being punished

  148. Rrsrq Says:

    Kenny Bell doesn’t look natural as a receiver.

  149. Landon Says:

    this is like looking at your turds before you flush them…

  150. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    If ASJ wasn’t playing, we would have quite a few less caught passes…at least he breathed a bit of life tonight..

  151. BucFan20 Says:

    Coach had to put someone out there that could catch the ball. Evev if it was against the UPS drivers.

  152. BucFan20 Says:


  153. Capt Blighe Says:

    Both back up QB’s are pure garbage.

  154. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Goodness, everyone is on the stupid UPS driver jokes…The joke is like dead people and visitors, it stinks after the third day..

  155. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Kenny bell done got rung tonight son! Hell! This poor kid is cursed. Great hair tho, great hair. Get well bell. It’s been… Uhhhhhh, swell.

  156. PRBucFan Says:

    Coach K wanted to see if ASJ really wanted it tonight. He finally got open on the fourth stringers. Dude didn’t look like he really cared tonight honestly. Didn’t even bother going after the guy he tipped the ball to on that pick lol
