Historically Awful

Thanks to both Derek Carr and zero pass rush by the Bucs in the second half, Bucs fans will forever have Norm Van Brocklin's name singed into their memory banks.

You want to know how bad Derek Carr riddled the Bucs defense yesterday? Not only did he shatter a Raiders record, he came “this close” to setting a decades-long NFL mark.

Consider this galling nugget unearthed by the four-letter last night.

(Caution: Please step away from projectiles, anything made of glass as well as sharp objects.)

When did Van Brocklin set that record? In September 1951! The Bucs defense was so sorry yesterday, it damned near coughed up a 65-year old record!

What the hell was going on yesterday, did someone let Lovie Smith back in the locker room? Unreal!

    No worries about Mike Smith getting a head coaching job anytime soon….unless he replaces Lovie at the University of Illinois.

    We have to look at the players at some point don’t we? the 90 million dollar McCoy was NOWHERE to be found yesterday. They have tried different schemes and coaches, maybe it’s time to turn the page on those said players, we sure as hell have not won with them.

    Hate to say it, but we are about as good as I thought we were going to be this year. Was never sure what everybody was seeing that I wasn’t, walking around firing rainbows and sunshine out of their azz. That pretty much shoots to heck the chances of a sell out for Thursday night. Oh well, means cheap club seats for me again. Love the secondary ticket market. Our team is pretty much on the bitch side of every big record that gets set.

    JBF article this past week described Raiders as ‘pretenders’. Obvious contention? They weren’t really as good as their 5-2 record would indicate. Well Joe, that not-so-good team not only rolled up over 600 yds of offense on the Bucs, but did so managing to commit a NFL record 23 penalties for 200 yds more. This was a devastating beatdown in our own stadium.

    Dirk Koetter tried to shoulder the blame afterwards when he said “I’ve got to call [a game] better.” He’s absolutely right, he called a lousy game. But that’s only one of a myriad of reasons why the Bucs lost. I can’t think of a single player who played big yesterday … not a single one. Jameis stunk up the place, but he was hardly alone. Bucs OLine played like hot garbage when it came to run-blocking AND pass-protection. RBs showed me nothing yesterday. ME13 was our only threat and he was blanketed pretty well most of the time. Our TEs became almost non-existent except as blockers. Result: Jameis had zero weapons to work with all day long. That’s on Licht and that’s on the Glazers. Get the man some help!

    As bad as the offense looked, our defense looked even worse. Raiders huge OLine ate them for lunch. Zero pass rush from our DLine let Carr just sit back there in the pocket and pick our secondary apart. Of course he does have 2 pretty good WRs in Cooper & Crabtree so that sorta helped (Cooper was in VHIII’s head all day long it looked like). And when the Raiders did choose to run, their OLine just blew holes open that a Mack truck could’ve run through … our LBs (Alexander in particular) were tossed around like rag dolls. Blitzing wouldn’t have helped yesterday … Raiders OLine dominated and Carr’s quick release ate us alive anyways.

    Plain and simple, the 2016 Bucs are a mediocre team at best. ME13 said after the game … “We thought we had it won and they snuck it from us.” No Mike, they didn’t sneak it from you. Talent-wise, the better team won yesterday, by a bunch.

    Hell I thought for sure after the Bucs won the first game they were going to the super bowl! Bahahahahaha !

    Hang in there Bucs Fans, we’ll get what we need eventually. Just give the Coaches 1 more offseason to get what they need. I hate to bring up the offseason, but just because we don’t have everything at 100% means that some people think we suck. It’s hard to get 100% talent on your roster because the Salary Cap will put things to a halt. We simply wouldn’t be able to keep great players of the NFL on our roster such as Von Miller, David Johnson, Clay Matthews, Aaron Donald, Lesean McCoy, and other great NFL players because the cap would cause bad issues in other positions. I’m not saying we’re in cap trouble, but what I’m trying to say is that the NFL isn’t a real life Video Game. The Virtual World is where your wishes in the NFL come true much easier than in real life NFL.

  7. University of Seffner Says:

    If we had those great players of who I mentioned on our team, then we’d have a lot of Sabby Piscetelli’s, Daquan Bowers’s, and other players who are simply emergency backups.

  8. thunderchunkyPA Says:

    Hey there fellow fans, remember when #54 said this could be the BEST defense EVER… HAHAHAHAHAHA………

  9. evolvingBucfan Says:

    The biggest disappointment for me was that they just can’t show up at home.
    When are they gonna stop keeping themselves in it just enough to lose and to keep losing at home whether its close or not shows me that they just don’t have that edge to compete. Is gonna get to a point where we look forward to road games to have a better chance at a win? Odds say yes.

    Gotta be Lovie Smith’s fault.

  11. Jersey Buc Says:

    Lol! Don’t worry. With Ryan coming to town and Brees still remaining on the schedule (twice), the Bucs will do all they can to help shatter that record. Lol! 17 wins at home since 2009…unreal freaking real. Lol!

    Yep, I don’t understand it either. I thought the Bucs at best would win eight games this year. I mean they had to improve from last year’s six win total, right? Last season if it wasn’t for bad kicking and a Kwon suspension the Bucs could have easily won eight games at minimum.

    But hey, giving up 600+ total yards under Dirk Koetter’s coaching staff is better than giving up 600+ total yards under Lovie Smith’s coaching staff, right guys? I’m sure the confidence poll will be through the roof tomorrow because of faith alone. Faith in nothing.

    I thought The Commish said it perfectly in his podcast: Jason Licht overestimated the roster.

  13. Stevek Says:

    Gerald McCoy is our star player. We need him either make plays or allow those around him to play better. Not impressed with our d-line after yesterday’s debacle. It would’ve been better to just drop 11 in coverage. Smh
