Gameday Tampa Bay!

October 23rd, 2016


Game 6

Bucs at 49ers

Kickoff: 4 p.m.

TV: WTVT-TV Channel 13;  DirecTV Channel 714.

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (WDAE-AM 620 and WFUS-FM 103.5 in Tampa-St.Petersburg region); SiriusXM Channel 83 .

Weather: Not bad football weather on the left coast. Per, tailgaters will enjoy mid- to upper-60s under party sunny skies. Temperature at kickoff is expected to be 72 degrees and should hold steady through the end of the game under bright California sunshine.

Odds: Per, Stinking 49ers -1.

Outlook: If the Bucs can’t win this game, it is beyond shameful and time for a complete and total overhaul of this roster. The 49ers are garbage. No defense. No running attack. Joke of a passing attack. Their only “weapon” is Sideshow Bob and his feet. When you have to rely on a guy who couldn’t beat out Blaine Gabbert for a starting gig, Joe doesn’t know what to say. The Bucs should have their way with the 49ers if this team thinks it can make a wild card push. If the Bucs lose this game, then Joe is of the mind that the roster must be gutted of damn near any player that came before Lovie Smith (not all, but most). Just the thought of losing to this schlock team makes Joe want to start throwing down cheap whiskey already.

Trinkets: The 49ers rank last in the NFL in total offense (292 yards a game) and rush defense (174 yards allowed a game). … San Francisco is also 31st in the NFL in points allowed per game (30.8). … The 49ers are fifth in rushing offense (123 yards a game). … The Bucs are tied for 26th in points scored per game (18.8). … The Bucs are 27th in rushing yards a game (88.6) and points allowed a game (28.4). … SOS, the Bucs are tied at 25th in the NFL in sacks (9).  The Bucs are second in the NFL in third down defense, limiting opponents to a 31.1 conversion percentage. … San Francisco LB Ahmad Brooks has a solid history against the Bucs. In his first NFL start as a member of the Bengals in 2006, Brooks had 14 tackles. … In a beatdown of the Bucs in 2013, QB Sideshow Bob completed 19 of 29 attempts for 203 yards and two touchdowns while running for 42 yards. … In a chain-whipping of the Bucs while playing for the Crows in 2014, now-injured WR Torrey Smith had four catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns. He leads the NFL the past two seasons with an average of 18.8 yards a catch. … SS Antoine Bethea has the most tackles for a defensive back since the start of the 2006 season (973). …   Tampa Bay CB Brent Grimes has the third-most picks in the NFL since 2013 (14). … With the game-winning drive against Carolina on Monday Night Football, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, now has four game-winning drives in his young  NFL career. … With 30 carries at Carolina, RB Jacquizz Rodgers had the second-most carries in a game this season. … WR Mike Evans is fifth in the NFL in touchdown receptions (four) and sixth in the NFL in receptions per game (6.4). … MLB Kwon Alexander is eighth in the NFL in solo tackles (37).

    This game scares the shiz out of me.

    Historically this is a game the Bucs lose they’ve been a cure-all for struggling QBs and Defenses… I hope this is a different team.

    Go Sucs!!!

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    This game can be won in the first half!!! The lines need and should be able to dominate, and that will set the tone and outcome!!!!

    Need to hit commie kaepernick early to get him running around like a scared chicken!!!! Gang tackles will slow him down!!!!

    Very interested to see what the Bucs look like coming off the bye week!!!!

    Go America!!!!!

    And GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo studied the picture of the SF cheerleader to see if she/he/it had an Adam’s apple…Pablo doesn’t see one. Pablo warns his Buc fans at the game to inspect closely before intimacy. After all, it is SF.
    Pablo thinks Kaepernick’s love of Castro is actually love of Castro Street.”

    Our roster is depleted as well, hope we play a solid, disciplined , hard fought game. Can’t take anything for granted in this league, the other team gets paid to play hard and win too.

    they are real!

  7. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs as road warriors. Win this game and 3 road wins will be not to shabby. Go Bucs! Let’s get even. Give the gold panners lead.

  8. tmaxcon Says:


    they do play better on the road. Not sure what the fix is for playing at RJS. It certainly is not a home field advantage.

    A little too much air in those balloons to be real…….California, land of plastic surgeons.

  10. tmaxcon Says:


    you are probably right but I’d like to check em just in case…

  11. orlbucfan Says:

    2:38PM: Banks is inactive for this game. Say what?! Cut him and let him go to a team who will let him play. Maybe Conte will break his leg. Go Bucs!!

  12. tmaxcon Says:


    Banks asked to be inactive today. he is protesting all the injuries related to climate change.

    I agree completely. Too many fans are fearful…I suppose given the past they have a right to be. But this, I suspect, will be our best game of the year thus far.

    I expect the Bucs to score 32+ points and get 6 sacks on their QB.

  14. MadMax Says:

    Come on D, put KAP on his knees for good!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
