It’s The Browns

August 26th, 2016

browns fansAmid all the giddy, beer-soaked excitement over how the Bucs looked in the first half tonight, and how America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, shredded the Browns defense, Joe offers cautionary, sobering words of caution.

It’s the Browns.

There is no more sack sad organization than the Browns. They almost made the Bucs looked good while the Pewter Pirates have been mired in a five-year rut of finishing in the NFC South basement.

The Browns are horrid. Their owner listens to homeless people for draft advice when his private company is not being investigated by the feds for wrongdoing.

How rotten are the Browns? They turned to Redskins reject Robert Griffin III for salvation. And before that, Stewart McClown of all people!

Can you imagine?

Yes, the first team of the Bucs should throttle sloth like the Browns. But let’s not kid ourselves. The Browns are not the Stinking Panthers.

But it was sure fun to watch and dream of what might and/or could be.

    The Browns may be a b!tch team, but at least we recognized their b!itchedness, and dong-slapped them into halftime.

    This is what its all about… This is how you dominate. Go Bucs

    So you’re saying the browns are the new yuks.

  8. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Give the Browns some time..they do have some really good players on their team..Hue will adjust’ll see..I have no doubt the Browns will get a lot better..

    No need to downplay this game. How often have we seen the bucs play to the level of their competition. How many 2nd and 3rd string QBs have torched our defense? I’ll enjoy the win, even if it is the Browns.

    The Browns defense is very good. The Browns will be a lot better this year than less years. I do not think the slogan it applies.

    Oh my god! Don’t sit there and act like you (Joe) weren’t pounding the table for the Bucs to draft Manziel that year! You were basically saying the same things as the homeless dude right here on these very pages, ad nauseum. Such a short memory.
    Sir, Joe has archives. Joe wrote dozens of times that Johnny and Bridgewater were the only smart picks for the Bucs, given that they were a very QB-needy team after the 2013 season. Joe’s not hiding from that.–Joe

    The same Browns that killed us last year in preseason. This is a good win for us.

  13. SOEbuc Says:

    BucsFanFavorite I totally agree. They’re barely gonna be playing starters next week so we got tons of players feeling good about going into game 1

    “It’s confidence, it’s chemistry. it’s Dirk’s first home win.”

    Haha I meant you Dewey not BucFanFavorite. Had too many tonight but thats justifiable with that beautiful game

  15. Mike Johnson Says:

    Lets not carried away, Its the..BROWNS! However, we will take it!! Any win is a good win. Lets do it when it counts!

  16. Clodhopper Says:

    Who’s to say it would’ve been like tonight a year ago tho? I’m very confident we would’ve shot ourselves in the foot a dozen times in the first half a year ago, no matter how inept the competition was.

  17. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Unpopular opinion. McCown isn’t THAT bad. Our offensive line, a horrible coach, and as the Joes say, ill suited, Marcus Arroyo doomed that season. McCown never had a chance.

    Granted he is sub par at best. But this website acts like he is the worst QB in history whereas in all honesty he is a decent Backup, we just shouldn’t have expected him to lead a team behind a garbage offensive line that allowed pressure on virtually every play while running a garbage offensive scheme making up for one of our infamously worst defenses,

    Just saying

    Sure it was only the browns. And we did what good teams do to bad teams. Dominate them. I guess that means we could be a good team. The other thing that could have happened is that we could have played to their level and lost. What message does that send the fans? It’s only preseason?

    The bucs looked good regardless of who they were playing. Winston was on fire. His accuracy was right on today and that is important for him early in games.

    There is no reason to not be excited about how this game played out. The bucs offense was EXPLOSIVE. Not too many times have we ever said that about a bucs offense.

  19. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Also the bucs had only 1 penalty in the first half! Doeant matter who you play, if you play mistake free football good things happen.

    How many penalties did we have against the brown last season?

  20. Rrsrq Says:

    That receiving corp is huge and athletic, I think their TE didn’t even play last night, they got a few weak spots on the Oline but they also have the best LT in the game, Browns have just been mismanaged.

    JOE didn’t exist back in the NFL Dark Ages down here. It shows at times. 🙂 The Browns are one of the original 12. Their mindset is numb from all the losing, double-digit. Their fans are the team. A few of us oldies went through it back in the late 70’s and the ’80s. It was the same deal. Talk about bags on your head. “the faithful didn’t do those cos it was too much effort. This team set records for losing that are still in place. They have plenty of good players on there. I feel sorry for their HC. Old fart Tampa fans hope he can break that losing mindset. It’s a bad one. 🙁

    This was an impressive win over the lowly Browns, one that Lovie Smith’s Bucs would have struggled to earn. Just keep in mind that pounding the Browns at home in the pre-season does not equate to facing any of the first 5 games on the regular season schedule, much less a playoff game.

    The Bucs appear to be improving over last year, which is a very good thing. The amount of improvement may not show in the standings due to that ridiculous schedule. Vegas still has the Bucs pegged at 7 regular season wins, even after the outcome of the Browns game. Keep your expectations in check.
