    Let’s go Bucs!!!!

  2. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    GO BUCS! Kick the ship out them dirties!

  3. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I really like that TNF opening theme song!

  4. MadMax Says:

    About to be fugly for us fellas! Try to just shrug and laugh….is what it is. Im pulling for us to eek out a win someway somehow, but I know the state of dread we’re in as a team (and me, just being real). Unless theres a complete turnover meltdown by matty, this one will be over by the 1st half.

    The one thing we have going for us is Coach K and Smith wanting to win against their former employers. Maybe that will be enough to get it done.

  5. james in dunedin Says:

    Look at that empty stadium.

  6. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Negative posts already starting…I’m out for a bit. I prefer to enjoy the game.

  7. Kobe Faker Says:

    Come on koetter the clown

    Prove kobe faker wrong

    Short passing ball out no huddle

    Watch out for those damn comeback routes with me13…jumpcity

    Lets go bucs!!!

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Kobe, tell the truth…you answered the 3rd option on the poll today.

  9. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    TB wins the toss!

  10. Bucintired Says:

    Damn that stadium is empty

  11. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Last week, I truly believed we were going to win. This week I have the feeling that Atlanta will win. Maybe I’ll be wrong this week too!

    I hope so! Go Bucs!

  12. Brandon Says:

    O-line has to step it up tonight. If we can’t run the ball with success, it’s gonna be a long night. It all starts up front. Also, which defense shows up tonight?!?!?!

  13. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Can only blame themselves for the empty seats. Hope they are able to make a statement tonight. Go Bucs!

  14. SB with Jameis Says:

    Injured, out-manned, at home where we suck! This is just the type of game we Win.
    That being said I took the Falcons

  15. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Anyone at the stadium on here tonight?

  16. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Uhh… bad call… ATL won the toss… what was I listening to?

  17. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Man…I REALLY hate our uniforms.

  18. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Here we go, GET THIS W

  19. cmurda Says:

    JW , another overthrown long ball not giving his receiver a chance.

  20. MadMax Says:

    Nice run Barber!

  21. BucinJax Says:

    Oh no! Catsup he’s mayonnaise. Super ugly uniforms.

  22. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    So far looking good!

  23. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    I believe

  24. BucinJax Says:

    Versus not he’s

  25. cmurda Says:

    Wow. M.E.. Dude. Watch the ball and stop hearing footsteps.

  26. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Good hit mike, bad drop tho

  27. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Evans at fault there.

  28. MadMax Says:

    Uh oh! Winston hiding his Freeman impression tonight (thank God!)

    Come on Bucs, prove me wrong.

  29. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Outside that opening run, Barber is looking gooooooodddd!

  30. cmurda Says:

    Love watching M.E> fight hard after the drop though. That’s why he’s a stud

  31. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Moving the chains…hmmmmm

  32. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Nice pick-up to EVANS!

  33. COBucs Says:

    just saved himself in int

  34. cmurda Says:

    Dirk? Terrible secondary. 2 runs in a row? Come on dude

  35. lurker Says:

    kvetching start yet?

  36. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Bad drop by evans…. shake it off!

  37. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Way better play calling on this first drive. I believe Dirk started to rely on Jac Rodgers a little too much. TOUCHDOWN BUCS

  38. MadMax Says:


  39. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Holy crap! Will that stay a TD????

  40. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  41. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    He’s down.

  42. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    F@cking touch down!!!!!

  43. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Great job by evans to pop that ball out… near disaster

  44. cmurda Says:

    No TD but great catch

  45. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Yep he’s down lol

  46. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    He’s down, but nice effort.

  47. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    22s knew touched him while down. Bummer.

    Still a good play though.

    Winston was almost picked off there. HE keeps making those mistakes and…eek.

  48. lurker Says:

    great play

  49. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Alright, my stream is like 3 minutes behind… i’ll check back at half-time..

  50. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    22s “knee” I mean.

  51. lurker Says:

    man…I really love our uniforms!

  52. LovieBall Says:

    That was no where close to a pick. Almost picked off means the defender at least got a hand on the ball.

  53. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Ya know, I think that color jersey would go well with pewter pants…same color as the numbers on the jersey! Just too much red right now.

  54. BucinJax Says:

    If td is called back, I’m sure that was not the intent of the rule.

  55. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:



  56. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Nice run

  57. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    You would think the Falcons would learn to stop the run against us coming into the 4th time.

  58. MadMax Says:

    TD!!!!!! ME13!

  59. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  60. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Great opening drive! Isn’t this the first TD we’ve had on the first drive all year?

  61. EvolvingBucfan Says:


  62. BucinJax Says:

    Oops, further video showed I was wrong.

  63. lurker Says:

    feel sorry for the gents who are colorblind, though

  64. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Honor John lynch

  65. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  66. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I thought we’d come out flat but I’m glad I’m wrong. Bravo Bucs!!!

  67. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Nice kick. Hope he kicks them all like that.

  68. EvolvingBucfan Says:


  69. lurker Says:

    good opening drive.

  70. Chris Says:

    Jameis looking good

  71. MadMax Says:

    Alright D! Your turn!

  72. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    EvolvingBucfan, do you have to include that word in every post? lol

  73. james in dunedin Says:

    Looking good Bucs! Lets get a 3 and out from the D.

  74. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    That was a fantastic drive! Go for two

  75. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    Very nice opening

  76. Dooshlarue Says:

    Sh!t! I’m at a hotel in New Orleans and it doesn’t have NFL network. …..this sucks!

    Go Bucs!

  77. lurker Says:


  78. Chris Says:

    Yeah Jaegan, didn’t we have the longest droit in the NFL for opening drives without tds?

  79. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Aguayo needs a game where he makes like 5 field goals. That will settle him down.

  80. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Going to be a high scoring game so let’s all buckle up and be OK that Matty Ice is going to get some explosive plays.

  81. cmurda Says:

    Great drive. Nice fast start. Hopefully the defense can be decent this game. We are going to need all the points we can get. The reality is ATL’s defense is suspect but their offense is going to score

  82. Kobe Faker Says:


    You god damn clown!!

    Jaboo yah!!!

  83. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Let’s go D!!!!!!!!!!!

  84. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith. Blitz on 3rd and long. Do ittttt

  85. cmurda Says:

    Yup, there’s that Buc defense. As reliable as a wet fart

  86. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Boys… The bucs D will give us all gray hairs. Bend but don’t break is all we can hope for!!!

  87. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  88. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    They’re throwing trick plays at us hmmmm

  89. cmurda Says:

    Good defense boys. FIRE MIKE SMITH

  90. 911bucs Says:


  91. MadMax Says:

    Oh boy! our D!

  92. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Not so much, yikes that’s terrifying

  93. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    We are still in it even now!!!!!

  94. lurker Says:

    that was fast

  95. cmurda Says:

    We have to score every possession. This defense is laughable.

  96. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God this defence is so bad. Of course it’s confusion in the secondary. At least the defence will be well rested for next week tho. Lol

  97. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well…good thing the offense is clicking…by offense I mean Barber, Smith, Evans and Winston.

  98. BuccoDav Says:

    David seems to be a liability in the passing game.

  99. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Know what I liked about that beer commercial…that steak on the grill. Man…I’d kill for a good fat grilled steak right now.

  100. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Will our D tighten up???

  101. Bucnut2 Says:

    We are toast! no way our offense or defense can hang

  102. cmurda Says:


    This whole defense and its coordinator are a liability. How Mike Smith hasn’t been under fire is beyond me. Bottom 10 in the league.

  103. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Good coaching Mike Lovie Smith

  104. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Defense will figure it out. Question is how high the score will get before they do.

  105. lurker Says:

    I miss banks already. grimes is overrated here.

  106. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I miss Michael Spurlock…

    Run, Michael, run!

  107. cmurda Says:

    The Jameis haters have been quiet at least. if nothing else, we got 15 minutes of not hearing them

  108. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  109. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    We are a running

  110. MadMax Says:

    @Doosh, type feed4u into google

  111. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well…holding a facemask 😉

  112. cmurda Says:

    Thanks O Line Another drive killing penalty. Our O Line and defense give this team no chance. So sick of the predictable with this bad team

  113. Bucnut2 Says:

    WE suck

  114. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Well, that sucked.

  115. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow. Just Wow.

    And look at the field position. Barring a pick, Falcons will score.

  116. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    And that’s the beginning of the end boys. We are officially cooked.

  117. BuccoDav Says:

    Fing ref!

  118. cmurda Says:

    We are truly a laughing stock. There’s just nothing to say about a piss poor team like this. O Line coach? You suck. Mike Smith, you suck.

  119. Bucamania Says:

    Cmon man!

  120. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Need pressure

  121. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I hate being negative, but it’s soooooo hard to be positive after that. Just laughable.

  122. Jersey Buc Says:

    Lol. What’s crazy is that they’re actually trying to play defense…and they’re just plain awful. Lol. They’re historically bad!!!

  123. BuccoDav Says:

    (Good pressure!

  124. MadMax Says:

    hmmm, held to a fg? that was a rarity.

  125. cmurda Says:

    Was that a pressure from our D Line?

  126. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Yes how about that boys

  127. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Good stop by defense.

  128. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  129. BuccoDav Says:

    Well…that’s a win.

  130. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Interesting to hear Al say Jaboo would be a senior in college if he stayed in school. That’s puts the growing pains in perspective…

  131. Mcruzer Says:

    Why are we so opposed to taking time outs in the first quarter? It happened last week as well. When our defense was not set for that last Atlanta score, we should have called one and just now as the WR was running onto the field and there was confusion in the backfield we should have taken one.

  132. Bucnut2 Says:

    I predict a blowout!!! This feels like a 50-18 type game

  133. Njbucsfan Says:

    Just gifting points….that play had disaster written all over it. Players running on right before the snap. Call a TO coach or America’s QB. Lead

  134. Bucnut2 Says:

    TT- who cares- JW sucks

  135. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Tailgater, yes it does. He WILL get better. He IS our FRANCHISE

  136. J nice Says:

    Nothing wrong with our d! Pressure can be better but every game this year the O has hurt us bad!

  137. Njbucsfan Says:


  138. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Nah I you can’t jump on him so soon he’s gotta feel the valleys to get to the peaks my friend.

  139. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bucnut2 sucks donkey d!cks

  140. BucinJax Says:

    Lots better play calling so far.

  141. cmurda Says:

    No O Line kills their offense like ours. Not okay. No improvement through 8 weeks.

  142. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Looked like Claiborne took HIM to the ground. Lol

  143. jugheadfla Says:

    so sad we don’t have another WR

  144. Chris Says:

    As I said before, Donovan Smith, turrible

  145. BucfaninMi Says:


  146. cmurda Says:

    Come on JW. We have to overcome these O Line penalties and score TD’s

  147. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Loving the no huddle tempo

  148. cmurda Says:

    hate these empty back formations. One dimensional does not work

  149. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The leggs.

  150. Njbucsfan Says:

    Love the ball fake after 10 yards

  151. Chris Says:

    Dotson, very turrible

  152. jugheadfla Says:

    seems like our OL has to hold on every play!!!

  153. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I’m glad we’re letting Jaboo throw! And run!

  154. Njbucsfan Says:

    I agree about the empty back field. Everyone knows the first second and third read is to Evans.

  155. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    These flags tho?

  156. cmurda Says:

    Watch out Raiders. Your 23 penalties will be in jeopardy. Our offense is poorly coached.

  157. jugheadfla Says:

    the ball was in the air, wasn’t it?

  158. Chris Says:

    Geez Louuse, we learned something from the Raiders

  159. jugheadfla Says:

    just go for it, that was sad

  160. BuccoDav Says:

    Looked like the defender ran into Me13.

  161. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God we suck. Lol. Please go for it

  162. cmurda Says:

    Dirk looks terrible. the most obvious seak in the world. The formation told the story. What is wrong with this guy

  163. Njbucsfan Says:

    This is the type of play you put 6’7 Glennon in

  164. Njbucsfan Says:

    Crap a fumble.

  165. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Another turn over. SMH

  166. Bucnut2 Says:

    Fumble by JW

  167. cmurda Says:

    Winston fumbled. And it’s on Dirk. He doesn’t have what it takes to run an offense and coach. he just doesn’t. How you can lineup and leave the middle unblocked on a QB sneak is moronic.

  168. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    What do you think? Play reversed?

  169. Chris Says:

    Really, Tom Brady is like 1,0000,0000 for 1,0000,0000 in sneaks, we can’t even do that right

  170. Bucnut2 Says:

    We are a terrible team lead by a terrible QB

  171. Njbucsfan Says:

    The call is fine…it’s the execution by the players.

  172. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda, could you save that junk for after the game? Please? lol

  173. Dislocatedbucsfan Says:

    Cmurda jameis should have checked out of the call.

  174. Chris Says:

    Stupid call, especially since we’re running well with the rbs

  175. Bucnut2 Says:

    can anyone relate to the Sachez butt fumble? JW=MS

  176. cmurda Says:

    Again, laughable coaching. I can only hope Dirk learns how to be an NFL coach and he gets rid of Mike Smith. We need continuity at Head Coach but Mike Smith hasn’t had a good defense since Jack Del Rio made one for him.

  177. Dislocatedbucsfan Says:

    Agreed Chris

  178. BucfaninMi Says:


  179. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    FML. LOL

  180. cmurda Says:

    @Dislocated. I don’t disagree but JW’s passion won’t let him. He feels like he is going to get him.

  181. VaBuc Says:

    This team suck so bad its funny im in here laughing to where my stomach hurts im calling penalties b4 they happen gosh Donovan Smith sucks he’s a drive killer flag waiting to happen and this defense aw man no words just pathetic im done with this team for the yr lets go draft …atleast my CUBS won 🐻⚾🐻⚾🐻⚾🐻⚾

  182. J nice Says:

    Penalties hadn’t been an issue all year! We shoot ourselves in the foot every week!!

  183. jugheadfla Says:

    this team is a travesty

  184. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    I still believe

  185. cmurda Says:

    I don’t know. i’ve touched on every problem with this team and asise from Evans, it’s everything else. We are just a bad team that is even worse at home. Inexcusable incompetence.

  186. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cmurda- forget coaching our QB sucks. Dirk did not fumble, Winston did

  187. jugheadfla Says:

    well at least they are allowed to hold

  188. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That’s it, I’m out of this thread. Worst fans in the nfl

  189. VaBuc Says:

    And Dirk is not head coach material he’s a coordinator thats it the man has some of the worst calls ever

  190. JMN Says:

    That was a dumb call. O line has been getting gaps, why not hand it off to a back?

  191. cmurda Says:

    Here’s those Winston haters. They finally got a little something

  192. Bucnut2 Says:

    Evolving-get counseling

  193. Chris Says:

    Can we make Noah Spence an every down player, damn

  194. BucsFan90 Says:

    Koetter back to calling dumb plays smh

  195. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cmurda- objective people woudl call us REALIST

  196. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Akeem spence gets some push tho?

  197. cmurda Says:

    Offsides and they got it anyway. And Mike Smith doesn’t blitz and I want him canned.

  198. Chris Says:

    Bye Bonzai,

  199. Bucnut2 Says:


  200. Bird Says:

    Tough being a Buc fan ! Are we trying to be the raiders this week?

  201. cmurda Says:

    @Bucnut how do you think any Qb would fare behind our line with 1 receiver and our 5th RB out there.

  202. Bucnut2 Says:

    c- you are a true homer idiot

  203. BuccoDav Says:

    There was nothing wrong with the call. The lack of execution is what should be questioned.

  204. Rrsrq Says:

    Flags, turnovers and wide open receivers. Long way to go…

  205. cmurda Says:

    Let’s go Lightning

  206. cmurda Says:

    Yes, a true homer idiot I am.

  207. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Damnnn…. First quarter and you all ready to fire everyrbody chill out and make a drink it’s a long night.

  208. Bird Says:

    Cmurda s a fake troller. Don’t even respond to him. Somebody fumbles or drops a ball it’s koetter’s fault.

  209. Chris Says:

    Other than the fumble I think Winston looks good

  210. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Buc nutz
    U are just an idiot. Lol
    I havent heard anything intelligent come from Ur post in 2 years.

  211. Broy34 Says:

    OEOPLE ON HERE ARE TALKING BAD ABOUT WINSTON. ARE U GUYS BLIND. AS ACCURATE AS CAN BE RIGHT NOW. the defense is absolutely ABYSMAL and the flags and turnovers are unwatchable

  212. Njbucsfan Says:

    Horrible angle

  213. MadMax Says:

    Good grief that porous D!

  214. cmurda Says:

    It’s a good thing we have Conte to help stop the run and take stupid angles to let them have that extra 10 yards

  215. Phillybuc Says:

    This defense is amateur ..jesus

  216. Bucamania Says:

    Someone make a freaking play!

  217. BuccoDav Says:


  218. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    How can you get that wide open

  219. Dislocatedbucsfan Says:

    “Lets go lighting” the first thing cmurda has said that I agree with

  220. cmurda Says:

    Conte follows that up by being 10 yards away from his coverage. Any reason why Matty Ice has 10 minutes to go to his 4th read

  221. Njbucsfan Says:

    How are people that open?!?!

  222. Bucnut2 Says:

    @murda- keep dreaming this guys is a big time bust!! go look at the rams tape, all day to throw to win the game and he can’t find a 6-5 guy. Look at the raiders game
    ,same thing. We set our franchise back 5 years by drawing this stiff

  223. lurker Says:

    why so wide open?

  224. BucsFan90 Says:

    Conte = worst safety in the nfl

  225. Chris Says:

    Spence coming off the edge again

  226. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    A lot of you aren’t true bucs fans

  227. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Give me a hell yeah if you love the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!! Come on guys let’s show some positive MOJO for the guys in red!!!!!

  228. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pay Eric Berry and draft a wr.

  229. Dislocatedbucsfan Says:

    Hell yea! Hahah I’ll second that bro

  230. Chris Says:

    Hell Yeah Tailgater

  231. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Some of you are…. Go bucs!!!!!!!!

  232. Njbucsfan Says:


    You still in the Philly area? Do you follow the Eagles at all?

  233. Bird Says:

    I don’t think the bucs front office will have to worry about mike smith getting a head coaching job ever. Wow. Pretty bad.

  234. lurker Says:

    so bucnut just comes here to bitch and complain…silly man

  235. BucfaninMi Says:

    That could have been worse.

  236. Pit Says:

    Let’s go Bucs!!!!!!!

  237. ColoradoBucs Says:

    @Tailgater HELL YEH!!!!

  238. Njbucsfan Says:

    Hell yeah but in a pain filled tone. It hurts to be a Bucs fan in a different NFL city

  239. Bucintired Says:

    We’re a 6-10, 7-9 ball club let’s just real. We have a lot holes to be filled on this team and factor in the injuries we’re just not quite ready yet. Patience my fellow buccaneer fans

  240. lurker Says:

    a td puts us in the lead. go bucs

  241. Pit Says:

    There is not bitching or whining during the game only support the team.

  242. Stevek Says:

    Great job D!

    So glad to see Lavonte knifing through on blitzes. Keepem coming.

  243. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    You negative downers make me feel like I’m in the room with that yapping mom on the phone from the geico commercial but times 20. HELL YEAH! Now stay positive if you can!!

  244. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Hell Ya!

  245. Scottasaurus Says:

    Do the Bucs even have linebackers? Just asking. Whatever happened to the run defense? Think I’ll watch a movie. 40 years of this crap is too much.

  246. Say What? Says:

    Did we decline the personal foul because Koetter didn’t have confidence that D could stop Falcons offense on 3rd and 23? Would have taken them out of field goal range.

  247. Rojas Says:

    Need a WR, or Safety in Free Agency. Than draft the other in round 1.

  248. orlbucfan Says:

    Where in the heck did those horrible uniforms come from??? I’m talking Bucs!

  249. Stevek Says:

    Let’s go Jameis, air that sumbitch out!

  250. EA Says:

    The way Barber carries the ball is gonna fumble 4 times.

  251. cmurda Says:

    Another penalty on Hawley. I guess add center to our list of needs.

  252. MadMax Says:

    that was a sh!tty call on Hawley!

  253. Chris Says:

    Again o line

  254. Stevek Says:

    Feed Evans! Hes hungry for targets!

  255. Bucnut2 Says:

    our team sucks

  256. EA Says:

    The Raider penalty bug is still at Ray Jay, bucs have it.

  257. Bucnut2 Says:

    we are going to punt

  258. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Oh no not hawley

  259. jugheadfla Says:

    Hawley injured from holding too much

  260. Chris Says:

    Hayley’s first of two injuries , he’ll be back

  261. Stevek Says:

    That’s a bold strategy, Hawkey, let’s see if it pays off.

  262. Njbucsfan Says:

    Really that pass tho

  263. Bucamania Says:

    Penalties galore. Winston has been on point.

  264. Bucnut2 Says:

    Going to be a blow out

  265. BucinJax Says:

    Reading commenters here the past month you guys had me convinced me13 couldn’t get open in first 10 yds. Glad me 13 didn’t know.

  266. cmurda Says:

    How can this coaching staff have this team so ill prepared? The O Line has how many penalties? Just no way for JW to overcome his brutal O Line

  267. Bucnut2 Says:

    For a change, JW has been accurate

  268. MadMax Says:

    Well, looks like Hawley’s done….crap. I still think Marpet would make a great Center and we can draft another guard.

  269. ColoradoBucs Says:

    I know it’s stupid, but I nicknamed Hawley: Joe “glass” Hawley. It’s a coping mechanism for his constant injuries.

  270. BucfaninMi Says:

    Injuries, flags, lose, repeat.

  271. 911bucs Says:

    I don’t want to see anyone hurt but doesn’t Hawley go Down in almost every game?

  272. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Make Auguayo block for Hawley

  273. Rrsrq Says:

    Hawley gets hurt every game, comes back in and still plays like crap. Is Evan Smith that bad or is he getting the treatment because DK knows Hawley from his ATL days.

  274. Bucnut2 Says:

    Cmurda- please stay in your fantasy land, it’s fun to watch your posts.

  275. Chris Says:

    Well, let’s see if everyone on the o line can get two penalties apiece before the half. Friggin garbage, ruining a good passing performance from JW. He might have to throw for 500 to break the 300 barrier with the flags.

  276. cmurda Says:

    I second that tailgater

  277. BucsFan90 Says:

    Hawley single handedly killed 2 of our drives

  278. jugheadfla Says:

    can we get at least one damn stop on D?

  279. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    You guys smell that? That’s a Bucs D turnover in the oven!!!!

  280. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    I don’t think bucnut s even watching, Jameis having a solidt game. Team is letting him down

  281. JMN Says:

    Flags and more flags. No wonder NFL ratings are down. It really takes the enjoyment out of the game.

  282. Bucnut2 Says:

    Chris-the only way inaccurate JW throws for 500 is if there are NO defenders.

  283. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Yes a penalty our way

  284. Chris Says:

    Staff is saying, Joe nothing really wrong with you its in your head, this happens every game. Hawley: ummm I tell you, it really hurts

  285. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Int our way comming

  286. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    How was that it intentional grounding

  287. Flgamma1856 Says:

    Anyone else think that pass was intentional grounding

  288. Chris Says:

    Hawley five minutes later, hey guys, I feel good… Ready to go

  289. Rrsrq Says:

    Allergic to a thee and out

  290. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:


  291. Stevek Says:

    Pamphlets fell into Hawley, sucks.

    The line needs to get it going. They are supposed to be a strength, not a mediocre unit.

  292. cmurda Says:

    Previous play should have been a safety. Hands to the face in the endzone. Good call refs. I guess only the Bucs will be penalized

  293. Bucnut2 Says:

    Guys- Matt is showing all of us what it looks like to have an NFL qb. Take note

  294. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Sack for fumble!!!!!!!!

  295. Njbucsfan Says:


  296. Chris Says:

    Tailgater fumble called that!!!!

  297. MadMax Says:

    Please be a turnover!

  298. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    It’s moments like these that the cancer of the losing mentality can be removed!!! I told you all that’s a turnover in that oven!!!!

  299. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    GMC sighting

  300. cmurda Says:

    Your turn McCoy haters. This idiot homer liked that play.

  301. Njbucsfan Says:

    Nice for a change

  302. Stevek Says:

    Holder to a FG! Let’s go D!

  303. MadMax Says:

    GJ McCoy!

  304. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Where the GMC haters at

  305. Bucnut2 Says:

    we have a shot

  306. BuccoDav Says:

    McCoy socks! Lol

  307. ColoradoBucs Says:

    @ Tailgater The oven just dinged!!! Turnover is served!

  308. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Totally called a turnover, maybe

  309. Stevek Says:

    GMC! Yeah!!

  310. Chris Says:

    Jesus, we might beat the Raiders

  311. Njbucsfan Says:

    Ugh 😑

  312. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Good golly, we needed that

  313. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    And another flag? We suck

  314. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Stop with got damn penalties

  315. Bucnut2 Says:

    another penalty

  316. cmurda Says:

    Penalties guys. This is basic crap. Illegal formation? Stooop

  317. Njbucsfan Says:

    Just put us out of Roberto’s range

  318. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Let me get a TD…. DING!!

  319. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    I believe!!!!!!!

  320. MadMax Says:

    TD ME13!!!!!!!!!

  321. EvolvingBucfan Says:


  322. Chris Says:

    Damn Evans beast,,,, JW

  323. Njbucsfan Says:

    ME is a beast. We can’t waste his talent

  324. BuccoDav Says:


  325. lurker Says:

    playaction missed

  326. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  327. cmurda Says:

    M.E. just put that in yo face cornerback. yeah M.E. I love that nastiness

  328. Stevek Says:

    We are going to need to throw the 💩Out of the ball to have a chance! Throw it to Evans again!

  329. MadMax Says:

    Whatta catch! GJ JW3 too!

  330. Chris Says:

    Agayyo, backed up,, Uh oh

  331. Rrsrq Says:

    That was nice JW to ME = TD

  332. LovieBall Says:

    Randy Moss

  333. Stevek Says:

    Phuck yeah!

  334. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Mossed his you know what

  335. Tampa Tony Says:

    Penalties penalties and mo penalties

  336. Broy34 Says:

    “Most sacks by any DT since 2013…just stop u morons. I’ve heard enough. And if you don’t think he has the worst d ends of any elite d tackle. Ur crazy. Just stop. Him and Winston and Evans are the backbones

  337. BuccoDav Says:

    Good job, Roberto!

  338. Stevek Says:

    Winston is fired up, I love it!

    Cmon GMC give us another sackfu!

  339. MadMax Says:

    Bucs are proving me wrong!!! And Im loving it

  340. james in dunedin Says:

    Who the hell false starts on an extra point at home? Come on Bucs!

  341. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Please stay in it till the end… that’s the making of a good team

  342. Chris Says:

    McCoy sack fumble , Hawaiian doing a happy dance while stomping on a post from DB

  343. Bucamania Says:

    Awesome play!! Still waiting for a late flag lol

  344. lurker Says:

    McCoy at least double every play.

  345. Pit Says:

    Bucs!!!!!!!!!! All of you whining bitches STFU.

    I take back what I said for Geraldine.

  346. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    MadMax… Me too brother! It’s a nice surprise but we need 4 quarters of the same!!! Boom!!!

  347. Broy34 Says:

    Joeain asking as a loyal reader please block or warn bucnut2. Dude is cancer. Hating on winston when he’s been better than Matt. Matt has guys wide open. He’s simply a troll who likes Mariota too much

  348. Stevek Says:


    Why are you pissed? Your boy McCoy just got us a sackfu and Winston delivered to Evans for six!

    Phuck yeah!

    The game is just starting. Let’s see GMC and Jameis wreck 💩!

  349. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Somebody tell the Bucs that having the Penalty Record is NOT a good thing…

  350. BucfaninMi Says:

    Maybe we got a game now

  351. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Thumbs up Pit! It’s like watching a game with your grandma’s

  352. Pit Says:

    Well Oakland won and got the record so maybe they misunderstood

  353. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Effin raiders infected us with this spit. Are you effing kidding me

  354. Njbucsfan Says:

    That hold was BS

  355. Stevek Says:


    There’s no tattling on JBF! Leave it to the filters to remove anything out of line.

    There are some folks whose comment you just skip over.

  356. BucfaninMi Says:

    Well F***

  357. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    No meltdown allowed!!!!

  358. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Puck this four eyed dough boy ref with all these flags.

  359. jugheadfla Says:

    holding on 67? who the hell is # 67?

  360. cmurda Says:

    I give up. We are going to break Oakland’s record for penalties and that happened just last week. The previous hold on 67 was crap call

  361. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Al Michaels making me laugh with his not-so-subtle frustration with all these flags.

  362. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Clean it up boys… Stay positive Joe Bucs!!

  363. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    We’re gonna break the penalty record they just effing set

  364. Stevek Says:

    Damn penalties are getting old. Let’s go Bucs! Focus on the task at hand.

  365. Chris Says:

    Penalty record, in jeopardy, lol, announcers said it was gonna be like Dimaggios hit streak, they don’t know us

  366. Chris Says:

    Damn suck ass dbs

  367. cmurda Says:

    Grimes. Do you know how to play CB? Ryan was hit and he lets the duck get caught. Dude is donezo

  368. Tampa Tony Says:

    Penalties and bad defense

  369. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Grimes stays on the ground. SMH

  370. Tampa Tony Says:

    Gotta hope they hope ATL to fgs

  371. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Brent Grines with the scheduled slip.

  372. jugheadfla Says:

    worst D in the NFL and its not even close

  373. Njbucsfan Says:

    Nice LVD

  374. Njbucsfan Says:

    Ryan Tannehill messed up the grass. Just ask Miko

  375. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Someone give grimes longer spikes on his cleats

  376. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    I still believe…. you??!!!!!!

  377. j dubb Says:

    akeem spence is having a day so far, needs to be resigned. let mcdonald walk. spence played well last year too when healthy

  378. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    #13 GODZILLA is a problem!!!!
    Let’s go D
    C’mon BUCS

  379. Chris Says:

    Brent Grimes falls and Hawley injuries, like death and taxes

  380. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Bend but don’t break… That’s the state of our D so quite whining and accept the reality boys. We’ll hold them to 3 or…. Another Turnover cooking in that oven!?

  381. ColoradoBucs Says:

    I just realized that I’m ok with Brent Grimes in spite of his slips…I thought of how we used to have EJ Biggers

  382. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Nice breakup

  383. VaBuc Says:

    This damn defense tho why everytime we score our defense allows the team to drive and score everytime its sickening

  384. Tampa Tony Says:

    Why did they rush only 3!!!!!!!! Mike Smith is Lovie Smith 2.0!!!!

  385. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Just enjoying the roller coaster… pass the Tums

  386. cmurda Says:

    FIRE MIKE SMITH. Fire his ass. Nobody on this defense even knew what they were doing on 3rd and 12. Zero blitz, zero pressure. Please fire him.

  387. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    This D can’t get a stop if it was handed tp them

  388. Another J Says:

    We should just start lining up 4 Defensive Ends on 3rd down, In passing situations.

  389. Chris Says:

    Exotic looks, 3-4, blitzes like the 46

  390. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Weak @ss defence. SMH

  391. cmurda Says:

    Hi Taylor. Walk into the endzone. You don’t have to worry about our incomepetent defense. Nobody will touch you.

  392. Njbucsfan Says:

    Grimes doesn’t what to tackle. Need to defend that goal line.

  393. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Mike smith is running Tampa 2 2.0 and Koetter is ball-less play to e Movie 2.0… Effin shame

  394. Njbucsfan Says:


  395. Rrsrq Says:

    Speed on offense, what a concept…

  396. BuccoDav Says:

    Holy sh*the! He’s fast…

  397. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:


  398. VaBuc Says:

    Will we answer, hell yea let’s go
    Cmon BUCS

  401. Tampa Tony Says:

    I know ATL’s offense is legit but this d doesn’t even put up a fight

  402. Bucnut2 Says:

    VA buc- we suck because of JW

  403. Another J Says:

    Mike Smith must have found Lovie’s playbook.

  404. Pit Says:

    Go Bucs!

  405. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I’ll have another… Cheers to that speed. Bucs are envy. OK Jaboo and Dirk… Impress us again!!

  406. Chris Says:

    Benned around , works on Bucs

  407. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pay Eric Berry in free agency, promote Jay Hayes to DC and draft a wr

  408. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Liking this drive

  409. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Or, pay a wr in free agency, draft a safety and a wr in 2nd

  410. Chris Says:

    Another drop by ME

  411. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW- is really bad

  412. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ohh, and move Donavan Smith to guard or RT

  413. Bucnut2 Says:

    It’s not ME,it’s JW

  414. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    First down

  415. cmurda Says:

    Our O Line has been horrific. JW just made an insane play. Donovan is getting roasted

  416. Chris Says:

    D Smith is garbage

  417. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That was Brett Favre esk

  418. Tampa Tony Says:


    Donovan Smith getting worked by everyone

  419. Rrsrq Says:

    Is the offensive line mad at Jameis

  420. Bucnut2 Says:

    Jason Licht sucks

  421. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bucnutz, Ur a troll and less that an idiot.

  422. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    #3 got heart, I’ll give him that

  423. Flgamma1856 Says:

    Our offensive line needs to get their head out of their……

  424. Chris Says:

    Bucnut is a troll, he’s literally blinded by his hate

  425. BuccoDav Says:

    JW threw a wobbly pass but ME should catch that.

  426. Rojas Says:

    D Smith needs to be moved to RT.

  427. cmurda Says:

    Underperforming and still in this game. Bucs are lucky with the sloppiness that the rest of the Nation is seeing. This is very disappointing.

  428. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Jameis is taking a beating. O line blows at pass prot. D smith needs to move to RT or inside.

  429. BucsFan90 Says:

    Oline doing nothing as usual

  430. BucfaninMi Says:

    What the hell man, is he coaching from the field? Ridiculous does anyone know the plays????

  431. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey Joe- you need to stope defending DS. HE officially SUCKS

  432. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    Bucnut please go away..

  433. grafikdetail Says:

    just draft all OL & DL… play in the trenches is what this team needs LOL

  434. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Dono getting his ass handed to him

  435. Bird Says:

    Add a left tackle to off-season free agent / draft list. Move Donovan smith to the right.

  436. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    What no flag!!!!!

  437. cmurda Says:

    Ref never blew the whistle and let JW get demolished. Unbelievable

  438. MadMax Says:

    Ugly a$$ late hit that wasnt called on JW3!!!!!!!!!! Fk u refs!

  439. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Its O line overhaul o clock

  440. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This line is soooooo trash and that was a 15 yard late hit. Our oline and the refs can’t protect our qb

  441. cmurda Says:

    We need to stop making plays on first down and just punt it. Play that field position game baby

  442. Bird Says:

    Both tackles getting abused

  443. Bucnut2 Says:

    Game, set, match. We officially suck

  444. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    I smell INT

  445. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Dotson blows. Need LT and RT cut dotson move d smith inside, ali to pamphile to RG

  446. Tampa Tony Says:

    Now ATL will open it up big time

  447. cmurda Says:

    Vh3 lined up 8 yards off of Julio. Shocking that a quick slant would work everytime. FIRE MIKE SMITH

  448. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Oline sucks defence suck, team sucks

  449. lurker Says:

    at least our punter kicks ass

  450. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    I thought Cam Newton just had a little talk with Goodell about this spit!

  451. Tampa Tony Says:

    Score at the end of the half and score at the start of the 2nd. It’s what good teams do

  452. BuccoDav Says:

    When was the last time we had a pick 6?

  453. Tampa Tony Says:

    171 yards so far for Ryan dude may throw for 400

  454. MadMax Says:

    Great job Gholston!

  455. Njbucsfan Says:

    Wtf. Call timeout and attempt a return

  456. Tampa Tony Says:

    Koetter has no balls

  457. cmurda Says:

    Call a timeout and try something Dirk. For the love of God, the man is more conservative than Lovie. What if you get a blocked punt.

  458. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Alexander don’t look good…

  459. Njbucsfan Says:

    Brings me back to dumb Lovie saying he didn’t want to score before half time

  460. cmurda Says:

    Lightning tied it. Go Bolts and i say Go Bucs too.

  461. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Consider the blowout predictions in the comments… You all should be doing the worm on your living room floor at halftime!

  462. Pit Says:

    Why should he risk? Is not like we are sure our defense is going to stop them.

  463. MatthewPlus Says:

    Christ on a cracker! Why not call timeout and give it a whirl? Koetter is worse than Lovie. Start changing the culture!

  464. Stevek Says:

    Bucnut = deez nuts

  465. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Dungy and the NFL network ripping Koetter… Ouch

  466. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Say what you want about schiano, but at least the man had something between his legs, lovie and keotter are gutless losers

  467. vortexx66 Says:

    Donovan Smith is going to get Winston hurt. Dude is playing bad…..
    Loaf Smith!

  468. Tampa Tony Says:

    Surprised they stopped them before the half

  469. grafikdetail Says:

    team lacks of playmaker and discipline…after winston & evans what do they have on offense? other than an occasional splash play what does the defense have? some of these other guys have to start stepping up…

  470. Tampa Tony Says:

    It’s bad when boring Dungy rips you for being boring and having no balls

  471. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    All hail the greatest… John Lynch

  472. Tampa Tony Says:

    I’m the NFL you gottta steal possessions

  473. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Donovan Smith getting worked but no, right tackle is not the answer, he’s not built for it.

  474. Tampa Tony Says:

    Remember when Bucs defenders would challenge catches and stop teams? Those were fun times

  475. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Int here we go

  476. Njbucsfan Says:

    Our DBs play off way too much

  477. Tampa Tony Says:

    7 on 7 drills can re commence

  478. Rrsrq Says:

    No three and out, first play, first down

  479. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Good challenge!!

  480. Tampa Tony Says:

    They won’t win this challenge

  481. Njbucsfan Says:

    They better not call that a catch

  482. Rrsrq Says:

    Not a catch

  483. Tampa Tony Says:

    Fingers crossed

  484. cmurda Says:

    Good challenge Dirk. No catch. Still, I am baffled by VH3 being 7 yards behind the receiver. How it makes sense to give talented receivers that much room to work with is mind-numbing.

  485. SB with Jameis Says:

    He dropped it. Grimes getting burned. VH standing Up

  486. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Guys… I predicted the only turnover and the first TD…. I’m calling this second half to finally be on our side and we’re finally going to play like we did in the first half. #NoMeltdown

  487. Njbucsfan Says:


  488. cmurda Says:

    The refs are joking right? Effing kidding me. Definitely no possession before hitting ground. No, we are hated by the NFL

  489. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Terrible terrible terrible

  490. Tampa Tony Says:

    Wow Bucs get no calls

  491. SB with Jameis Says:

    I mean Didn’t we just REVIEW the rules of what a Catch actually is???? Bert Emanuel rolls over in his grave

  492. cmurda Says:

    VH3 10 yards off LOS. Time to kill, I mean, fire Mike Smith

  493. Njbucsfan Says:

    Our DBs should just stand on the 1 yard line no matter where we are on the field.

  494. BucinJax Says:

    Gotta beat birds and refs

  495. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pathetic. Can’t beat the refs

  496. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Why the ratings are dropping, NFL? That’s why

  497. BuccoDav Says:

    VH3 toast.

  498. Njbucsfan Says:

    Jones not even covered by a DB that time

  499. BucinJax Says:

    53 tackle?

  500. cmurda Says:

    All Julio does is turn and run slant. Too easy. I dont care how hard I beat the FiRE MIKE SMITH drum. It’s warranted

  501. Flgamma1856 Says:

    Julio jones runs the same in route on every play

  502. Tampa Tony Says:

    When your defensive play calling is soft the players reflect that mindset

  503. cmurda Says:

    Clearly VH3 50 yards from LOS isn’t working so let’s keep doing it. Brilliant

  504. Broy34 Says:

    Hate this sport. It’s horrible television. Nothing exciting even happens. If it does it’s called back because it happened and there HAS to be a hold somewhere

  505. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Well, looks like 3 and 5 boys. Tank for Myles Garrett?

  506. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Tomorrow a very sizeable “donation” will be made to all the refs from today’s game.

    There can only be ONE explanation for not only that BULLSPIT call of a completion as well as all the missed calls and very liberal calls against us

  507. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    um have these refs heard of an uncatchable ball?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  508. Broy34 Says:

    Truly unwatchable.

  509. Tampa Tony Says:

    Damn Vernon can’t pull him down

  510. Bird Says:

    Mike smith defense is looking lovie-Esk. This is so painful

  511. cmurda Says:

    VH3 is a rookie. Mike Smith is a terrible defensive coach putting him in position to fail

  512. Chris Says:

    Heartgraves sucks ass

  513. MadMax Says:

    and here we go….smh

  514. EA Says:

    Go lightning, the team that deserves fan support.

  515. Rrsrq Says:

    Dammit, this team gets on my nerves

  516. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    These refs are either the WORST refs in all of the NFL or they are the best paid refs in all the NFL, oh and by pay i dont mean salary. i am talking about the massive anonymous dontations they will receive tomorrow.

  517. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  518. Tampa Tony Says:

    Offense can’t waste any possessions

  519. Patrick Says:

    Same crap every season from this team. And get rid of those hideous uniforms good lord

  520. ATrain Says:

    Question why in the last 4plays was McCoy only in once if he is Sooo good stuffing the middle.

    BTW he landed on his face for this play

  521. Pit Says:

    How the F*uck was that a reception. WTF man why this f league hates us.
    These MF referees. Where the F do they live.

  522. Dave Says:

    Dont even deserve to win with this terrible defense better we lose now than get false hope this team clearly isnt going anywhere this year atleast winston and evans look great future should be bright

  523. hadenuffan Says:

    this defense is a sive. they can’t tackle, they can’t defend passes, they can’t get off blocks. they run around like they have no idea where they’re suppose to be. man how i long for the days of sapp, rice, brooks, lynch and barber.

  524. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    26-14….12 points that’s not bad. I have an ice cold brew and… loving that tomorrow is Friday and a gorgeous weekend.


  525. Chris Says:

    I mean the same frigging play 5 straight times , Jesus no wonde the Gators have been mediocre since Urban left with brain dead cbs like Heartgravves

  526. Stevek Says:

    Let’s go Jameis! We need an answer.

  527. Rrsrq Says:

    Since we can’t stop them, if we score here, insides kick early, doesn’t matter if they get the ball at the 50 or the 25, but first let’s block and score.

  528. gilhealy Says:

    gotta start hitting those #2’s. Martino, Shorts, Smith whoever. Their gonna be bee lining to Winston every down.

  529. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Fire these refs. either from the NFL or on a stake, either is acceptable

  530. Bird Says:

    I don’t get it. I know I am blaming mike smith but we have a Dline that can’t get pressure, linebackers that are terrible in coverage, cornerbacks that play soft/not physical and safeties that never make plays. This defense is years away from being relevant at this rate. Pretty frustrating. Better spend some money in free agency next year

  531. Broy34 Says:

    These refs have cost us two straight games. Just accept it guys. They’re keeping our defense on the field for overtime, for longer drives, on third down stops. When we force incompletions. We won the game last week. Penalty shiould not have been called and had it been another team it wouldn’t have.

  532. Chris Says:

    Blowout coming in 5,4,3,2,1

  533. cmurda Says:

    Can’t even put a drive together. This is what soft coaching and a defeatist mentality looks like

  534. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  535. Flgamma1856 Says:

    If Cecil shorts can’t get open and be a part of the offense can we just put another line man in so we can get a better pass block

  536. EA Says:

    Shorts Cecil is garbage

  537. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    When the crowd gets loud after a punt… #AngerforMVP

  538. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Raiders esk with the way Jaboo and Koetter came out for the first 2nd half drive

  539. hadenuffan Says:

    who in the hell is 75 and 67 where did these guys come from?

  540. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  541. Chris Says:

    Damn damn damn

  542. kyle in savannah Says:

    Man, its unfortunate, this team is just not that good. decimated by injuries on offense. The tampa media (joe included) continues to suck the co.k of our oline and wants to continually make excuses and pretty much compare our oline to the old redskins hogs… bunch of bs. they are terrible. jameis gets hit way too much, no wonder he’s struggling. look at the difference in time that jameis has compared to matt ryan tonight

  543. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    F#CK these refs. Why is there ZERO responsibility for these complete JOKES of human beings. Like seriously, every other job in all of history is judged on performance. but the league just pretends its referees are literal reincarnations of Jesus effing Christ and incapable of sin.

    How about each game is reviewed and refs that cant make one good call to save their worthless, take-money-to-make-bad-calls, lives are fired

  544. Dave Says:

    Go back and listen to that first down last drive winston calls out “they wanna play man we gon kick they ass”

  545. Rrsrq Says:

    What is third down to this defense, it’s first down to opposing teams

  546. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I hope mike smith gets fired after tonight

  547. Architek Says:

    This is prob the worse defense in the NFL – • LOL

  548. Aaron Says:

    we are so bad…

  549. Pit Says:

    It’s over!

  550. kyle in savannah Says:

    the defense is terrible, we need 6-7 players.. Where is mccoy? Im tired of hearing about double teams. this guy is under performing.

  551. Tbbucs3 Says:

    2d week in a row, Hey Jude gets beat on the exact same play, not good.

  552. Chris Says:

    Embarrassing defense

  553. Tampa Tony Says:

    Cover no one defense in full effect

  554. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pathetic. I hope dirk has the b@lls to fire his friend. This Is unacceptable

  555. Flgamma1856 Says:

    Can someone tweet grimes wife and tell her to pack her bags because her husband needs to be cut after this game.

  556. Chris Says:


  557. DallasBuc Says:

    At the game.
    Looking like ATL going against the practice squad.

  558. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Fire Mike Smith
    He runs a high school defense. Ryan’s already over 300 yards midway through the 3rd.

  559. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    We had two directions to go tonight and it’s safe to say we’re done with the season. I had free tickets tonight and passed. Sad sad sad.

  560. BuccoDav Says:

    This is not scheme. This is on the players.

  561. Rrsrq Says:

    So that is 1000 yards in two games given up by Mike Smiths defense

  562. cmurda Says:

    We don’t deserve this product at home on National TV. We fans have a right to hold this staff, Jason Licht and this sorry group of underachieving losers accountable

  563. Tampa Tony Says:

    Jameis is a 3 n out machine when this team has GOT to have a score to rest this sorry d

  564. lurker Says:

    why did we not play banks?

    grimes is overrated.

  565. Chris Says:

    Toast Heartgraves, he’s as bad as Rod Jones

  566. cmurda Says:

    Oh, its scheme Dav. It’s more than just players. The Front Office hired this moron to coach another pathetic defense. Schwartz should have been our guy.

  567. Rrsrq Says:

    So Lynch, Sapp and Brooks in the house watching this *ish

  568. Chris Says:

    5’8 dbs don’t exist except in Tampa for a reason, but hey you Florida college honks got another state player, that’s all that’s important right?

  569. cmurda Says:

    Humiliated again by Falcons on National TV. Accountability. Everyone sucks from top to bottom in this organization.

  570. Bggyjnncxxfgnmk Says:

    @kyle in savannah, GMC forced a fumble on a sack that led to 7 points earlier.

  571. lurker Says:

    why did we take vh3 in the first?

    he is only good as a nickel back, if that, lately

  572. Bucnut Says:

    We have to play against Atlanta and the refs

  573. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Sooooo draft threads start tonight???

  574. Rod Munch Says:

    For the record Dirk quit on his team when before halftime he didn’t use his timeouts to make Atlanta punt. The guy is an absolute coward as head coach. Mike Smith is a disaster at DC. Fix the issue by making Mike Smith the “assistant” head coach, put Dirk back in the box, get someone who has coached defense since before Bush was the president. Man was firing Lovie Smith, something promoted by this website and supported by 95% of the dolts on here, man was that a dumb idea. This defense was 10th in the league last year… 10th.

  575. gilhealy Says:

    So, what exactly is the scheme? Maybe he’ll drop it? Damn, that looks too easy.

  576. Tbbucs3 Says:

    We hired our buddy just to be blown out by the Falcons like 2014. Lovie Smiths defense is an upgrade from this crap.

  577. BuccoDav Says:

    Lightning lose.

  578. Dr A Says:

    I’ve just about lost all confidence in the coaching staff.

  579. Bucamania Says:

    Get your head around Vernon. Cmon man.

  580. Chris Says:

    Not physical enough, not fast enough, not smart enough , no heart. Very bad……. Well, you wonder what the Raiders could do without the flags, you’re seeing it

  581. Phillybuc Says:

    Nice cut to Glazer smiling in the owners box

  582. Bucnut Says:

    Maybe we’ll draft a waterboy on pur second round next yr

  583. Chucklehead Says:

    Ok. Ive watched teams flip a switch and just decide to score at will on us. We are pathetic. This is who we are and it wont get better. If it would, it would have happened by now. Get comfortable with it, gents. Its gonna be a long few years under this defensive staff and scheme.

  584. Ed Says:

    This is like watching practice where you aren’t allowed to hit, are the Bucs wearing pads or are they playing flag football.

    How soft is Tampa right now? No mojo man, no spark, no pride. Forget the cannons, just surrender Raymond James to the invaders, our boys don’t want to defend this stadium, it’s really getting worse and worse being a Buc fan.

    Nothing happening on either side of the ball, flat warm beer and stale fries, gawd this can’t be happenings gain, a bad dream that never ends.

  585. Buc fan since 76 Says:

    This travesty brought to you by the laughing stock of the NFL, Brian and Joel Glazer. They should stick to soccer and sell the team. Idiots

  586. CloGreen Says:


  587. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Can’t blame McCoy. No one else can get pressure. Dude gets doubled every play

  588. Chris Says:

    If the Browns played us at home, who wins?

  589. Dr A Says:

    Another 3 and out and off goes the tv

  590. Off the Cuff Says:

    Safeties are terrible. Jabril Peppers welcome to Tampa!

  591. CloGreen Says:


  592. Njbucsfan Says:

    Really. A jumbo set with Humphries as the only WR. On first down

  593. kyle in savannah Says:

    we have so many holes we need players. im thinking best available player in the draft round 1..lol

  594. Chucklehead Says:

    Is it too much to ask to hit Evans in stride?

  595. ATrain Says:

    Ok JOE calling You Out…

    Second article tomorrow should read

    100 million Missing in Action

  596. mike10 Says:

    this is a horrible football team. An embarrassing franchise for the past decade. The issue starts at the top. It’s a bad ownership, management, and I’m truly beginning to question the coaching.

  597. Dr A Says:

    making atl look like Denver wtf

  598. Bucnut Says:

    It makes you wonder if Doug Martin is hurt or doesn’t want to be part of this crab.

  599. kyle in savannah Says:

    jameis has no fu..ing time to throw man, this line is getting beat like a drum.. Its not jameis guys, He is part of the solution, not the problem

  600. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Mike smith will def be back next year. Head coaching job my azz. Jones for a slant… jones for a slant….. jones for another slant! HELLOOOOOOOO! Here it comes again

  601. Phillybuc Says:

    ANOTHER JW over throw

  602. mike10 Says:

    another over throw on an easy TD

  603. Njbucsfan Says:

    Damn nice catch

  604. cmurda Says:

    M.E. with an amazing catch. And now pers foul for defenseless receiver??????????????????????????????????????Eff the NFL.

  605. kyle in savannah Says:

    evans is the best player on our team. im sorry he got hit like that

  606. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Dive. Evans. It’s allowed

  607. gilhealy Says:

    If that don’t piss us off, nothing will

  608. EA Says:

    I’d like to see our safeties to hit hard for once

  609. Rod Munch Says:

    No PF on that amazing catch – it’s football. But wow was that an amazing catch.

  610. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    No penalty is criminal

  611. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Come on put this in the end zone and make it a game

  612. mike10 Says:

    how does barber not get a first there

  613. Tampa Tony Says:

    This team is going no where until the d is fixed

  614. Njbucsfan Says:

    Winston is blocking better than the Oline

  615. lurker Says:

    lovie is bad. quit pretending otherwise.

    via yahoosports:

    The Lovie Smith era at Illinois has gotten off to a rough start.
    The Illini dropped to 2-6 with a 40-17 loss at Minnesota over the weekend. A day later, a report emerged from ESPN.com ($) that Smith, a longtime NFL coach in his first year with the Illini, is “miserable in Champaign.” The report also speculated if Smith would leave Illinois after just one season.
    Naturally, the report came up at Smith’s Monday news conference. He said he hadn’t seen the report and more or less shrugged off its sentiment.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/lovie-smith-denies-report-he-is-miserable-at-illinois-162155502.html there is more

  616. cmurda Says:

    3rd and effing 1 and you lose yards. Are you retarded Dirk. Confidence poll now Joe. I have none.

  617. mike10 Says:

    its those little things I’m talking about

  618. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    No call on leading with the helmet on that hit on Evans?

  619. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk down by 19 points will probably punt on 4th and 1 like with Denver, say he has no confidence in the offense getting the first down.

  620. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Because Neal didn’t lead with the crown of his helmet? #RIGGED

  621. mike10 Says:

    barber should have reached for the first on that 2nd and 12

  622. Tampa Tony Says:

    Bucs play two awful defense’s in a row and can’t do anything

  623. Moebucfan Says:

    The problem is these stupid coaches that dont see the games are played now just like madden atl ranthe same play three times ina row to jones then ran the ball icancoach better than these fools im sick of losing but im blowing out the raidrs patriots and other teams easily its playcalls not the players

  624. kyle in savannah Says:

    if i was named after keanu reeves i would kill my parents….just saying

  625. cmurda Says:

    yes Mike agree. Sorry effort by Barber but he’s like our 6th RB. I expect patheticness from him

  626. lurker Says:

    evans got speared in the head by the defender’s helmet but no call.

  627. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Clean hit

  628. BusteisWinston Says:

    Schiano had the last decent Bucs defense lol. We should just fold or move to Las Vegas instead of the Raiders.

  629. mike10 Says:

    that was 15 yards… targeting, defenseless receiver, and hitting the head… announcers pay no mention to it either… ummm

  630. cmurda Says:

    We going to punt in Dirk?

  631. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    These refs are as bad at calling this game as Smith is at calling our D

  632. lurker Says:

    cmurda blaming koetter for the rb not getting 1 yard…smh

  633. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Agree EA. Haven’t seen our safeties hit that hard since #47. All we do is grab ankles and hold on for dear life. Bunch of pu”$ies

  634. Andrew Says:

    Our defense is terrible. Offense basically gave away 6 points and we had almost 10 penalties before halftime. The staff is wrong about short corners. Size does matter. The lack of discipline reflects the extent to which the players don’t care about winning. Defense backs would rather point fingers at each other than take responsibility as a unit and commit to improvement. Terrible tackling.

  635. Rrsrq Says:

    Make James should be running short yardage

  636. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    OMG… Flag

  637. kyle in savannah Says:

    yay, holding….

  638. University of Seffner Says:

    Well, I’m gonna have to grind through School tomorrow. This ain’t helping me. Bucs, I love ya’ll, but ya’ll often put me in a bad mood.

  639. mike10 Says:

    clean hit buck? why is he dazed if he didn’t take a shot to the helmet?

  640. Tampa Tony Says:

    The flags have gotta stop

    Just awful

  641. cmurda Says:

    NFL is fixed. Every time a penalty against us. No calls on obvious ATL penalties. Just move us to London and put me out of my misery

  642. Rod Munch Says:

    Lovie had the defense 10th in the league last year, team went from 2 wins to 6 wins. Dirk, as OC, had the offense 5th in the league. The team wasn’t collapsing, the coach wasn’t calling out his QB after his defense gave up 650 yards.

    Dirk is a disaster as head coach – it was an amazingly stupid thing to pull him from working directly with Winston and being the OC after a great year and pull him out of the box and make him head coach. There’s a reason a guy that old never had a HC job at the NFL level. He coaches scared, his team has no discipline, his defense is lost, he blames his players for his awful calls – and he’s shown no growth as a HC since taking the job.

  643. lurker Says:

    this is crazy

  644. mike10 Says:

    another jameis overthrow

  645. Rrsrq Says:

    Where are the screen plays since we have NO other receivers that catch the ball

  646. Tampa Tony Says:

    Need a clutch throw and it’s too high

  647. Chris Says:

    We ruin a catch like that, this team except a couple of individuals is soft and heartless , I wish the Falcons would score two more tds and put this seal clubbing in its proper perspective

  648. Bangkok Buc Says:

    If I had a beer for every time I hear “and pass is too high” with Winston

  649. cmurda Says:

    JW good in the 1st qtr and again fails after that. I guess he has regressed. I didn’t want to face that but many of his passes are overthrown and this has been the case the hole year.

  650. Bucnut Says:

    Of course no flsg you piece of s#$@ refs. This like watching the movie longest yard. Maybe we need to throw the ball at the refs nuts.

  651. BucsFan90 Says:

    Entire Oline is hot garbage

  652. mike10 Says:

    league isn’t fixed. you have to earn those fringe calls. the Bucs suck

  653. Stevek Says:

    Where are the offensive playmakers. Evans and Jameis need some help.

    When is Doug Martin coming back?

  654. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Of course no flag on ATL mugging ME13

  655. Tampa Tony Says:

    If you really believe Lovie had a top 10 defense you are blind

  656. Alstott up the gut Says:

    They’re actually not even fun to watch…. here comes a bunch of in routes from the left side

  657. larrwoods3 Says:

    It is extremely difficult to remain a loyal fan when the product looks like this sh*t show that is put on display week after week after week. It’s hard not to dwell on the past when we should’ve made different moves in the offseason.

  658. Buc fan since 76 Says:

    Winston overthrowing everything. Kid should have stayed in school.

  659. Rod Munch Says:

    Are you going to pay $100 for a decent ticket to see this disaster?

    The answer to that is why the stadium is at best half full.

  660. Bucnut Says:

    When did the refs get to determine the outcome of the game?

  661. mike10 Says:

    If Koetter was brought backk for the development of Winston, you have to give him an F so far

  662. cmurda Says:

    I know I’m going to face criticism for this but don’t sell your tickets to opposing fans. Eff U Dirk. Win a home game, you turd.

  663. Chris Says:

    Seems like 200 yrs ago Al and Cris,,,, I feel like a Cubs fan before this year

  664. lurker Says:

    lovie sucked, period. we had to make a move. lovie got rid of too much talent. just because you are a mad lovie-lover, does not mean you are right. smh

  665. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  666. BusteisWinston Says:

    Glennon can’t be much worse than this. Who cares if Jameis can hit Evans deep when he can’t make a pass under 15 yards accurately.

  667. Tb501 Says:

    Damn it man

  668. Chucklehead Says:

    First time Ive ever thought or said this but….


    He used to be clutch, but he lost it.

    No Super Bowls in our future.

  669. cmurda Says:

    JW’s been up and down and this offense has been pretty bad, but Mike Smith needs to go immediately. A statement needs to be made after this embarrassment.

  670. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Bankock… I’ve been playing that game and I’m lit. It’s time for a fire sale. #ThePurgeTampa

  671. Tackleblockwin Says:

    We need a real HC.

  672. Rod Munch Says:

    Tampa Tony – Actually dummy I can read, and they were 10th in the NFL under Lovie, that’s a fact. Now get your mouth back the glory hole before you’re missed and get fired.

  673. Rrsrq Says:

    Open receiver after open receiver.

  674. larrwoods3 Says:

    I mean we gave up 500 yards passing to the raiders and now matt ryan is pushing 400 smh, this defense is horrid

  675. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Rod Munch

    Maybe under some misleading stats Lovie ran a “top 10” defense. But that’s total BS. Nobody who watched Bucs games can say the defense was good in anyway.

  676. Buc fan since 76 Says:

    Well at least we get to listen to Mike and Mike tomorrow morning. I hate Mike and Mike. Thanks 620, for nothing.

  677. DallasBuc Says:

    Tell me more about the great provider of NFL talent that Jason Licht is.
    I forgot. Tell me again please.

  678. Chucklehead Says:

    Fire the cannons. Atl bout to score again.

  679. Chrisco4BUCS Says:

    This team is pathetic, you can quit the playoff talk now

  680. Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Winston didn’t even have time to finish his drop back. O line letting this team down today

  681. Rrsrq Says:

    I’m good if this team never plays on national television again

  682. Chris Says:

    Curb stomped on national tv…..looks like Lovie yo me

  683. mike10 Says:

    this defense is an embarrassment. If I hear Grimes say, “every team has a bad game like that” or Smith say “don’t form your opinion on 1 night” I’m going to lose my mind.

  684. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – You’re 100% wrong. Mike Smith needs to be “promoted” and take over HC duties, then we can hire a real DC and put Dirk back up in the booth calling plays. Dirk is a disaster as HC, the defense is a disaster with Mike Smith doing the play calling. The pieces are there to have a decent coaching staff, but not with Dirk in charge and not with Mike Smith calling the defensive plays.

  685. Tampa Tony Says:

    If the Falcons d shuts the Bucs out in the second half I’m done watching until next season

  686. Nathan Says:

    They have given up it looks like.

  687. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I love Joe Bucs and you guys for having a safe place to vent!! Hahahaha man this is just Cray Cray

  688. kyle in savannah Says:

    fuc.k this bullshi! The defense has quit i done watching,

  689. Chucklehead Says:

    They broke me tonight. I cant do it anymore.

  690. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    After they score – put in Glennon.

  691. mike10 Says:

    “the Bucs are worn out”… still a quarter to play

  692. CloGreen Says:


  693. Chris Says:

    Well the Aguayo 2nd round pick paid off tonight

  694. wesley Says:

    This team SUCKS and so does the NFL quite honestly, too many penalties,reviews and ticky tac rules.

  695. Stevek Says:

    Our D is getting gutted.

    Winston isn’t doing too bad. He gets hit way too much and lacks a playmaker outside of Evans.

  696. Rrsrq Says:

    Chris, not just Louie, this goes back to Gruden losing to Dungy and also losing to the Panthers

  697. MadMax Says:

    Well, 1st half was better than I thought it would be for the O, but then it went like I said in the 4th post.

    Refer back to post #4 here and just deal with it….nothing surprising. We had moments at first but we suck. Is what it is.

  698. kyle in savannah Says:

    talk you yall next week.. im gonna watch some ancient aliens… lol

  699. BusteisWinston Says:

    Time for Busteis to pad his stat line in garbage time to convince people he’s a good QB.

  700. Chris Says:

    But our whole team will go over and smile and hug and kiss the Falcons after the game

  701. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    No reason for fluff stats – put in Glennon

  702. wesley Says:

    Done wasting my time on this crap!

  703. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Is there any real way for us fans to oust the stupid glazers?

  704. Buc fan since 76 Says:

    Winston can’t hit a beaver in stride. He hangs our receivers out to dry.

  705. Bucamania Says:

    And there’s the 40 burger

  706. CT Bucs Says:

    Where is the defense

  707. cmurda Says:

    And we wonder why the Bucs don’t get many Nationally televised games. You still love Matty Ice GMC. Let’s trade you and you can play for them. Your 1 play of the game happened long ago and then I hear nothing.

  708. PanthersSuck! Says:

    This defense is horrid.

  709. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Wave the flag – put in Glennon.
    This sh!t is pathetic

  710. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I think gmac made the whole team love drunk for Matty tonight… Donald Trump baby! Now there’s a big Win for all of us!!!

  711. Eric Says:

    Embarrassingly poorly coached team.

    Koetter in way over his head., it’s obvious.

  712. Chris Says:

    If this were a movie, we would be down at One Buc place tonight with pitch forks and rope

  713. Rod Munch Says:

    Tbbucs3 – The Bucs weren’t giving up 600 yards last year, and with the complete lack of talent they had the fact Lovie had them 10th in the league was a miracle. People thinking Lovie was the problem are people that should spend their Sundays packing people’s groceries at Publix. The defense this year has more talent than last year and is considerably worse. Lovie’s defense, if you know anything about defense, was bend – don’t break. With only McCoy on the d-line and no talent at CB or S, the fact Lovie got anything out of the D is amazing. Mike Smith is at best an average defensive coach – Lovie has always been a strong defensive head coach. Now you’re seeing why Lovie was a good coach even if you dolts don’t know what that means.

  714. Chucklehead Says:

    I just pissed myself laughing about that touchdown. Bucs are terrible. Thank you Koetter for passing on Schwartz and hiring your buddy.

  715. Tampabaybucfan Says:


  716. CT Bucs Says:

    So far they have not forced a punt.

  717. cmurda Says:

    All the hope before the season and now it looks like we are 20 years from being competitive. I have always defended GMC but we need to try to improve this team for the future and I’m on board with trading him if we can get good return.

  718. Tbbucs3 Says:

    We have 1 Wide Recevier, Cecil Shorts is worst than Dontee Dye,

  719. Tampa Tony Says:

    @Rod Butt Muncher- 10th in yards but what was the ranking in points allowed? Lovie sucked his scheme sucked his sons sucked his personnel choices sucked and if you can’t see that you suck too.

  720. Aaron Says:

    Ground Hog Day – take out Evans at least my Sunday just opened up for some golf

  721. Rrsrq Says:

    Sad thing is we all knew this might happen, yet we still hoped.

  722. PanthersSuck! Says:

    Thanks for wasting my Thursday night Bucs.

  723. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Jim Harbaugh for 2017 – has now offfically started.

  724. LongSeason Says:

    These ass wipes call themselves football players. They are thieves. Not one of them has earned a check this season. I have been a fan of this team since the beginning. They are f’ing done in my house. These guys are this biggest bunch of pushovers. I hope the entire team ends up on injured reserve and they forfeit they forfeit the rest of their games. What a f’ing disgrace. Koetter and Smith need to both be fired tonight. Then Licht too. F the Bucs.

  725. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    … Why?

  726. Chucklehead Says:

    What do you think? Another gutless 3 and out? Or is it time for Jameis to throw a pick6? A fumble? Ooh, I know, a butt fumble. We haven’t had one of those in a while.

  727. ColoradoBucs Says:

    I’m going to suffer through and watch this. I want to let this feeling sink in. I was so envious last night watching Cubs fans feel that sweet, sweet vindication and release. And I don’t know if it will ever happen again, but I want to look back at my loyalty when the Bucs make it to the top and feel what this lifelong fans of the Cubs felt with my (currently atrocious, embarrassing, awful) Bucs.

  728. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:


    “One Buc Palace has fallen”

  729. DallasBuc Says:

    The fans in the stands are as sour as I’ve heard since I was a kid.
    This is getting sad.

  730. cmurda Says:

    I agree Luv. What’s the sense in putting Winston out there. You have to hope JW can be a franchise Qb but that’s the last time I used those 2 words together to describe JW until he shows something. This butt stomping really shows us how damn bad this team really is. f you can’t get up for a nationally televised game, then you are just a terrible team, and we are.

  731. ColoradoBucs Says:

    *those, not “this”

  732. Tampa Tony Says:

    Here comes the garbage stats

  733. Chris Says:

    I hope GMC has all that warm fuzzies for Matty Ice as he watches yet another td sail over his head in this beat down. This guys been the leader in a defense that’s been ass whooped in far too many games

  734. Rrsrq Says:

    Mike James was on a winning team last week

  735. Tampa Tony Says:

    Who was he throwing to?

  736. EA Says:

    Save your bodies, don’t hit anybody, screw the fans screaming for a stinking win.
    Need a hard ass coach to light a fire under their ass, like Harbaugh.

  737. Silent_Partner Says:

    Sinking in yet like I told you when that premature firing of Lovie Smith was done to keep the brainchild Koetter whose offense has been to the playoffs a total of 3 times in his many, many years in the league as an OC and now HC? People who are mediocre college HCs don’t figure it out in the NFL, and it’s actually way worse than I thought it would be. Just hope your crazy owners are quick on firing this buffoon and tries to find an actual good coach for a change. They’ve struck out so many times that they might just stumble into one finally.

  738. Jersey Buc Says:

    Lol! You just can’t make it up…it’s a Bucs life. Good night.

  739. Team bucs Says:

    The head coach has gave this game a way never tried to get a run game going America’s quarterback Jameis has got his a$$ kick all nite and its not on him at all.. his accuracy has gone down because he’s tired of getting his head kicked in..coach need to let his player hit him a few times and see how he likes it.. last week the defense play 90 something plays the coach should have did his best to keep them off the field and failed his team miserably today..

  740. Jim Says:

    Someone text me when the draft is here…..thats all folks

  741. Patrick Says:

    The Chucky curse is in affect. Has been for 7 years.

  742. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    That first drive looked so good.

  743. cmurda Says:

    I hear you Colorado. I’m with you man. I still have the memories of horns honking and me having no voice and resorting to whistling when we won SB 37. I try to think about that when I see a team like we have nowadays. We are so far away.

  744. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucs give up 40 on defense is terrible and you morons are complaining about Winston.

    This is why you dolts were cheering Lovie getting fired and cheering Dirk getting hired. You panies should watch some games instead of blowing your buddies in the men’s rooms at Hooters on Sunday then you wouldn’t sound like complete morons.

    Not trolling, just giving some friendly advice.

  745. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    The bucs are like a permanent sourpatch kid….

    First their sour…. Then, they’re still sour

  746. Tbbucs3 Says:


    I wouldn’t say Lovie was a good coach, but with seeing Mike Smiths preformance this season I would definitely prefer Lovie, even Leslie Frazier for that matter.

    This team made a mistake when they fired Greg Shiano rather than just demoting him to DC.

  747. Chucklehead Says:

    Trade Evans so he has a shot at winning a game or two

  748. mike10 Says:

    I’m officially sick of watching Winston.

  749. EA Says:

    What happened to play hard for 60, why would they, the checks will clear.

  750. Silent_Partner Says:

    Lmao, Cecil Shorts, Adam Humphries, and Barber as your complementary offensive pieces, not to mention that line. Oh boy.

  751. Rod Munch Says:

    Silent_Partner – Amazing, finally someone on here who isn’t a moron. I said this at the time when Joe and all the morons here were cheering Lovie getting fired.

  752. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Take Mike out

  753. larrwoods3 Says:

    Evans looks like he’s blown out a hammy smh and for the life of me I have no idea how we didn’t at least try to trade for a receiver

  754. mike10 Says:

    Winston reminds me of tiger woods right now w the body language

  755. Rojas Says:

    Winston needs more targets.. Evans is out there by himself doing it all.

  756. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Remember the good times? 2010 and that shoot out game in Arizona? We won 38-35

  757. unbelievable Says:

    This offense only seems capable of playing 1 and 1/2 quarters of good football. The rest of the time, terrible.

    Poor Evans, he’s the only guy out there.

    Mike smiths defense also only seems capable of 1 or 2 quarters of football. Then they’re just gassed, they play the same vanilla scheme, and get an ounce of pressure.

    This team just isn’t there yet at all, it’s sad.

  758. Chris Says:

    Freddie Martino and his brand of renown, from the Vero Beach Ramada

  759. Chucklehead Says:

    Trade Winston too. He deserves to win.

  760. mike10 Says:

    week after week we have to be tortured by watching former players come into our home stadium and beat us.

    F this franchise

  761. Tampa Tony Says:

    Damn maybe should’ve held onto cla born

  762. Rod Munch Says:

    Tbbucs3 – Lovie was a good defensive coach, just look at his history – look what happens when he leaves this team that has McCoy and 2 LBs and nothing else on defense. He was a miracle worker but because the Bucs played a passive zone defense fans were angry, but considering the lack of talent Lovie was awesome. Mike Smith runs a passive zone and this defense is completely lost.

  763. RachelWatson'sthong Says:

    Clayburn with the sack

  764. mike10 Says:

    bad enough watching the Cubs who’s key players were Rays.

  765. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    These are not clean pass breakups by the falcons.

  766. cmurda Says:

    This isn’t a case of our guys not being good. It’s no heart. This O Line has gotten their tail whipped all game and even Marpet is oleing right now at half effort. Normally, there’s a positive to take away from any game but all I can do is look at the punter and give him the game ball.

  767. mike10 Says:


  768. Chucklehead Says:

    We suck

  769. ColoradoBucs Says:

    2012 that overtime game when We were down 11 with 6 minutes to go and VJAX caught that 2-PT conversion to send it to OT? Dallas Clark with the TD to end it! That’s the last time we beat Carolina…

  770. USFBUC Says:

    Why is everyone acting like the sky is falling? The team wasn’t good last year, so nobody should have expected a super bowl win. I think the best case scenarios called for 8-8 this year.

  771. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Is this preseason? Martino, then Mike James… Man it’s only half way down boys.

  772. MadMax Says:

    Lol, another former Buc, Clayborn, just doing it! I guess we’re cursed. Too many former players go elsewhere and show they just hated playing for us….. why?

  773. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk will be happy, the thing he is most concerned about – and 90% of the posters here agreed – was Winston throwing INTs. If Winston throws INT’s the team doesn’t win, and it’s much more important to protect the ball than to make plays when your defense is historically bad. I mean year we might lose 55-14, but that’s better than losing 61-38, right?

  774. Chucklehead Says:

    No other team in the NFL crumbles like this. They all have some fight in them.

  775. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Seashell Shorts!!!

  776. Since 76 Says:

    Falcons have not punted. I cannot remember ever seeing or hearing of a game when a team was not forced to punt at least once.

  777. RachelWatson'sthong Says:

    TD! Hey Ho! No Aguyao

  778. Chris Says:

    Well guys, the stadiums half empty cause the Falcons don’t travel well

  779. Moebucfan Says:

    Game over the bucs are only good when madden players call the plays maybe cause we know our limits omg i just beat the raiders and the falcons today cause i know how to put the proper players in place and that includes the backups too im at home on my couch hire me id change the season yes madden ratings chang weekly and we suck but i still win way more than i lose its like i know football better than thes fools making millions i will bet my everything id call a better game than our last four coaches imgonna apply for head coach

  780. MadMax Says:

    Great, get JW3 killed!!!!!


  781. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    What if Auguayo is an expert onside kicker lol

  782. Silent_Partner Says:

    Rod Munch ,
    It was so predictable because Buc fans do this. It was so obvious that Koetter wasn’t HC material, but they ran Lovie out of the out of the building despite not drafting a defensive player in his 2 years as HC. It was amazing to see the morons here who thought this team wasn’t playing above its head this time a year ago when they got to 6-6 before losing the last 4 games. People actually think this is a playoff team.

  783. Rrsrq Says:

    Glennon warming up

  784. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Great now winston is hurt. This failclowns defence is trying to hurt people. SMH

  785. BuccoDav Says:

    We beat Carolina 3 weeks ago…

  786. EA Says:

    I guess Glennon gets a shot second half of the season.

  787. cmurda Says:

    Done with Dirk. I’m done. I can’t defend this idiot anymore. You have JW out there getting pummelled. Why, you idiot?

  788. larrwoods3 Says:

    USFBUC it’s not that we expected a super bowl, we expect a competitor to be on the damn field. I don’t think that’s a whole lot to ask for

  789. sho nuff Says:

    football is dying…an absolute bore…too many flags…the players suck…the broadcasts suck the life out of you extending games to almost 4 hours….you people are witnessing the death of a sport

  790. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Jesus, Winston…… you’re down 20!!!! What are you doing?????

  791. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    I’d say move the team to London but they wouldn’t want them. Maybe Somalia is looking for a football team? Do they make flip-flop cleats? Hey Winston just took a shot!! Glennon gonna turn this around?? Lol. Suckaneers, you guys won’t take up any more of my time. I’m out.

  792. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Whoops. Totally forgot about that b/c that game was a mess. My B

  793. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    That is why you dont play your Franchise QB in garbage time

  794. mike10 Says:

    why act like the sky is falling? Because each week there is no progression on any front. The same team I’m watching tonight is the same team I’ve see the past 10 years

  795. Stevek Says:

    Last thin we need is for Jameis to get hurt bc our kicker sucks too bad to kick extra points.

  796. Rojas Says:

    Winston giving his all, gets hurt.

  797. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Oof seeing Jaboo get crushed like that isn’t helping….#TotheCryoHeGo

  798. cmurda Says:

    Going for 2 wasn’t even a logical decision. Dirk is just stupid.

  799. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    We need a lot of help everywhere! Point blank no offensive weapons and no real safety or CB help with no pass rush bad news for any team!

  800. Silent_Partner Says:

    Freddi martino…..on your active roster. Lmao. Hey, maybe Jameis is hurt and you can really see how bad your team is for the Glennon lovers who really have hated Winston all along and just were waiting for your justifications to come out of the woodworks, even though you really don’t have a reason with that horrid roster you have around him.

  801. BucsFan90 Says:

    Poor Jameis. This team doesn’t him

  802. Stevek Says:

    I hope Jameis isn’t injured. He’s a tough SOB, thankfully the guy that hit him is a little guy.

    Let’s go D! Don’t give up 47 points on John Lynch night.

  803. MadMax Says:

    Winston done for the season……put money on it!!!!!!!

    FK U COACHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  804. Destinjohnny Says:

    Lack of talent boys

  805. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk is an idiot and if you can’t tell from prior posts I’m not a fan, but you let Winston play. The kid is super young, always needs reps. I don’t blame him for leaving Winston out there, and Winston should be out there. You don’t bench your young QB in this situation.

  806. Moebucfan Says:

    Pissed off bucs fan again and again no more excuses i need to show our coaches our weak ratings and how to use what you have to win a game

  807. Chris Says:

    No Tailgater, he sucks doing that too

  808. MadMax Says:

    I swear!! Why do I waste my time with this same old same old BS this team keeps delivering?!?!

  809. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    LUVMYBUCS… Wut r u saying? Can’t blame HC on this. You more than anyone knows we need more talent…
    And much as it pains me, I wouldn’t b mad if #93 isn’t on the team next year

  810. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Moe..that’s the longest sentence I have read today. Commas and periods help your cause..lol..

  811. USFBUC Says:

    The reason we see the same team is because we constantly change coaches. The best teams and competitive teams don’t run through coaches constantly.

  812. Rojas Says:

    Winston and Evans is all we have on offense.

  813. Architek Says:

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahahahahahahhaha this team is a joke.

    Ok now I want answers Glazers.

  814. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    winston looks like hes concussed or at least in an extreme amount of pain with a high ankle sprain. The NFL should Ban tackling all together to protect the players.

  815. Moebucfan Says:

    Yes im new here but iread everyday faithfully and now im pissed and there is no filter with me

  816. mike10 Says:

    Good thing we cut our former 2nd rd pick last week.

  817. BigMacAttack Says:

    Same old Bucs. Nothing ever changes lol. We’ll be hard pressed to win another game this year.

  818. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Jameis 4tds 145 qb rating. Im sick of people blaming jameis, this coach sucks, this def coord sucks. Oh and you lovie peen suckers… dirk sucking does not mean lovie wasn’t still the worst coach we have ever had. Only means we made the wrong replacement

  819. Since 76 Says:

    Koetter should be fired for putting his quarterback at risk going for two when it did not matter

  820. Tampa Tony Says:

    Wow this d is just awful

  821. mike10 Says:

    Gotta love it when the accouncers are playing trivia during your team’s football game on national tv

  822. Rrsrq Says:

    Why didn’t we pay Matt Bryant

  823. ARGH_M8E Says:

    They just Ffhgdfn said JOSH FREEMAN!!!!!!!!!!! U hate my life as a fan

  824. Chris Says:

    Bryant….. Lol, yeah good thing we cut him awhile back, cause good kickers don’t last long in the NFL

  825. mike10 Says:

    Bryant, another Buc… who else is going to come in and make a statement?

  826. gilhealy Says:

    I think his knee got extended. When the guy hit him in the back, the other guy still had his leg. Oh boy…

  827. ARGH_M8E Says:

    They just Ffhgdfn said JOSH FREEMAN!!!!!!!!!!! I hate my life as a buc fan

  828. Chris Says:

    Cmon pick 6, make it an even 50

  829. Rod Munch Says:

    Moebucfan, you sound like the type of guy that goes to a bar asking women to wear a special belt and you bend over a bar stool.

  830. Tb501 Says:

    Mike Smith nerds to Dirk needs to get an oc and a new dc.Plus we need slot of players .Unload the soft azz players and get people who wants to win.

  831. Chucklehead Says:

    Sit Winston.

  832. mike10 Says:

    We cut him bc he pulled something in his leg, right after his son died suddenly…
    He’s been w Atlanta since.

  833. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    Hahaha. Winston out…Evans out due to concussion…wow

  834. Tampa Tony Says:

    Capt Checkdown comes in and this just sucks

  835. MadMax Says:

    And now our 8th stringer signed from the street is hurt….WE’RE CURSED!!!!!!

  836. Rojas Says:

    Winston looks like he wants to come back in. Kid has heart, an doesn’t want to give up on his team. But keep him on the sidelines.

  837. Silent_Partner Says:

    What’s that, 1100 yards in 2 games for the defense that got all the resources put into it?

  838. mike10 Says:

    garbage football team… top to bottom. And it starts w what’s between the ears and in the heart.

  839. Aaron Says:

    Did they just blitz?

  840. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Was that not a horse collar?

  841. mike10 Says:

    And good thing we traded up for a second rd kicker… Licht was smart to have that confidence in the rest of his roster

  842. Chucklehead Says:

    And another injured runningback.

  843. Bucs14 Says:

    Man, this team sucks! Trade McCoy…Hargraves sucks, too small. Julio owned him because of size. Gonna bea long season.

  844. Chris Says:

    Coincidence, we run through 6 rbs, the Browns run through 6 qbs

  845. Rod Munch Says:

    Jolly – Moron, if you think Lovie was the worst coach the Bucs have ever had you’re truly a special kind of stupid. Richard Williamson, Leeman Bennett, those are just 2 off the top of my head and they are undisputedly terrible. Man I wish you so called Bucs fans actually knew anything about the team prior to 2002, you’re just embarrassingly dumb.

  846. EA Says:

    Mike Alstott is going to dress at RB next week

  847. Chucklehead Says:

    Mike “Capt Checkdown” workin the line of scrimage like a boss.

  848. lurker Says:

    another rb down!

  849. mike10 Says:

    good news is we’ve played a somewhat “important” game in November… it’s been a while for that.

  850. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    This just in…Bucs are holding open tryouts tomorrow. No talent or experience needed. Hiring all positions.

  851. cmurda Says:

    I respect JW. this dude has heart and soul. I wish it would rub off on the rest of the paycheck collectors. M.E. and JW lay it all on the line every game. This O Line and D Line are the first problems to address. This game is won in the trenches and we get pushed around on both sides of the ball. It starts there and then the secondary will look competent.

  852. Chucklehead Says:

    Humphries plays his a$$ off. Too bad we dont throw at him more.

  853. MadMax Says:

    MadMax Says:
    November 3rd, 2016 at 8:18 pm
    About to be fugly for us fellas! Try to just shrug and laugh….is what it is.

  854. mike10 Says:

    humphries is one of our best players…

  855. Serge Says:

    Glennon going through progressions and is on target

  856. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Humphries has heart, I’ll give em that

  857. mike10 Says:

    cmurda… look man I agree, but Jameis pouts wayyy too much

  858. Bucs14 Says:

    Capt. Check Down looks like a boss in garbage time. I can’t wait to hear the Glennon crowd begin to chant his name to start. Looking forward to Duemig tomorrow!

  859. Stevek Says:

    Sucks that Evans and Winston are both hurt

  860. rayjay1122 Says:

    Evans showed up tonight and that was about it. The Bucs are so many pieces away from being even an average team. Maybe in 4 or 5 years they can achieve 8-8. No better than 4-12 this season. Mark it down. I hate being a Bucs fan. They suck and I suck for continuing to support this garbage. Please sell the team Glazers!!! If we could get competent ownership then perhaps something could get built here. We will never be relevant again as long as the Glazers own the Bucs.

  861. Tampa Tony Says:

    Time to watch some NBA, hell I should’ve been watching it all night

  862. mike10 Says:

    and once he pouts, you can see everyone starts to hang their shoulders

  863. Rod Munch Says:

    Humphries tries hard but can’t get open versus man coverage and has no size to make himself open like Evans does. He has a role but he can’t be your 2nd best WR or you’re in a ton of trouble.

  864. BuccoDav Says:

    Call MG8 whatever you want.. he’s taking what the defense gives and is moving the ball. Also, he’s not getting hit, JW can learn something here.

  865. lurker Says:

    10 days to heal.

  866. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    It sucks that we just lost another running back, Winston, Evans and Hawley….

  867. Stevek Says:

    Glennon looks decisive and accurate.

  868. mike10 Says:

    ray jay… I actually agree

  869. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    Can’t wait for the PC after the game.

  870. Rod Munch Says:

    If Glennon plays some this season and looks good, then hopefully he’ll get Brock money – and he’s a lot better than Brock is. The more money Glennon gets, the better the comp pick the Bucs get.

    Well that’s assuming they don’t sign a bunch of FA’s and they have the most cap room in the NFL next offseason.


  871. SofloBucsfan Says:

    I agree @cmurda. The oline really screwed the pooch tonight and stalled drives multiple times. ME is a dog, boy balls out no matter what

  872. Bucs14 Says:

    Already the Glennon crowd is calling him decisive and poised! Got to love Capt. Check Down’s people.

  873. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    Glennon FTW!!! Hahaha. And +2!!! Hahahha

  874. mike10 Says:

    glennon looks better than winston tonight

  875. MadMax Says:

    MG8 is looking great! So is Brate when its catchable!!!!

  876. lurker Says:

    so cubs fans suck for supporting their team for 108 years?

    look up definition of “fan”

  877. Since 76 Says:

    For all you NFL geniuses that are critical of Jameis. Check out his fantasy points. And no, he did not achieve garbage stats against a prevent defense. He was doing his best to overcome an abymissmal performance by the online.

  878. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – You really thinks the Falcon’s are playing their normal defense at this point in the game? It’s easy to check down all day when the defense is playing soft to protect a huge lead. Glennon is fine, but to say Winston needs to learn from him is beyond ridiculous.

  879. Chucklehead Says:

    Look at Glennon go. Maybe he should start next week.

  880. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Glennon picked up speed?????

  881. Stevek Says:

    Way to go glennon!

  882. Rrsrq Says:


  883. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Coach gonna take some he11 tonight, hopefully the media won’t give em an easy out

  884. LovieBall Says:

    Glennon is throwing all checkdowns you idiots.

  885. Silent_Partner Says:

    Chucklehead ,
    That’s problem one. You don’t just need guys who play their butts off. You need guys with talent who do that, and Humphries doesn’t have a lot like most of the players you have. Like Cameron Brate should not be starting for an NFL team. Barber should not be on an NFL roster. Cecil Shorts has been done for 3 years now and is one of your top receivers. Your offensive line is horrid outside of Marpette since Smith is out of place on the LT and should be your RT. The defense is still terrible and is actually worse than last year when Lovie Smith was working with mirrors with the little he had, and everything was put into the defense. Your defense has forced what, 2 punts in 2 weeks with one of those games nearly going all 5 quarters? That’s really bad.

  886. Since 76 Says:

    Joe, get real about D Smith. He stinks!

  887. mike10 Says:

    who cares if he’s checking down. That’s what Jameis was doing last year when playing well. Don’t be dumb, it’s better than wasting drives on overthrown balls..

  888. Pit Says:

    it looks like we are keeping Glenon next year……..

  889. lurker Says:

    look at the glennon mob with their hopes up…silly. even the announcers called it “garbage time”.

  890. AtlBucFanDan Says:

    Glad to see Glennon get some snaps. It’s been a minute

  891. Bucnut Says:

    This idiot can barely kick a field goal much less an onside kick.

  892. BusteisWinston Says:

    Glennon is leaving here for Arizona and will be lighting it up out there. Wish him all the best.

  893. Rod Munch Says:

    Thank you Glennon, I had Brate on a bunch of fantasy teams.

  894. Bucs14 Says:

    For all the Glennon fans out there. This is what is called garbage time. It is when a team has won by a large margin, and the players on defense are not the starters. Glennon is proving nothing except that he can check down and hit an under receiver when the D really is not playing hard.

  895. Chucklehead Says:

    Glad thats over.

  896. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Silent_Pa PartnerYou are wrong about Humphries and Brate.

  897. BuccoDav Says:

    Winston is always looking for the Big play. A curse of youth. He doesn’t see the field as well as we’ve been led to believe.
    If you don’t think JW has anything to learn, than you are a fool my friend.

  898. Rrsrq Says:

    So we trade up for a second round kicker and I’m watching the Falcons start four rookies on defense and young speedy receivers. Mr. Licht, you may have hit a good one last year, but if Jameis is regressing, so is the GM

  899. LovieBall Says:

    > That’s what Jameis was doing last year when playing well.

    Do you even watch our games?

  900. Rod Munch Says:

    mike10 – I bet you think Bortles is an excellent NFL QB as well, I mean he also gets tons of garbage time stats versus soft defenses that are protecting huge leads. Glennon is fine, but to pretend he’s anything compared to Winston, that’s just you being a racist.

  901. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    Oh so we pretty much always play garbage time tune Buck14? That makes sense. We are stuck playing garbage time football for 3 quarters every game. Explains a lot. Thanks for educating absolutely no one. Good day sir.

  902. MadMax Says:

    At least MG8 was on target!

  903. Since 76 Says:

    Game over and no punts. Worse defensive performance in franchise history. Perhaps modern NFL history.

  904. mike10 Says:

    rod… i wish I could insert a meme of that scene from Billy Madison, and may god have mercy on your soul

  905. BuccoDav Says:

    A lot of Winston’s yards last year were in “garbage time”.

  906. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – Winston has plenty to learn, but not from Glennon, who never saw a 3 yard checkdown he didn’t like – including on 3rd and 14. Not bashing Glennon, he’s just nothing special – to think him getting in some yards against a team with a huge lead and playing a soft defense is a big deal… it’s just not.

  907. mike10 Says:

    silver lining here, maybe we just increased Glennon’s trade value??

  908. Lee Encinosa Says:

    BAAAAHAAAHAAAA! I told everybody on the Bucs Facebook page earlier today that the Dirty Birds were gonna drop 40 to 50 on the Bucs. This team needs a GM that knows what the hell he’s doing because Licht sure doesn’t.

  909. Rrsrq Says:

    Silent Partner,

    I was saying that when everybody was clamoring for Brate and Humphries, if UDFA are your starters, then you are not a very good team. Talent will usually win out over being able to play hard when you are playing against talent.

  910. mike10 Says:

    Lee, I got a problem w Licht too

  911. Silent_Partner Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai ,

    No, I’m not. They scare no defenses. They would be good players to be 4 or 5th options, but they can’t be starters for your team and you expect to be good. But you Buc fans are used to bad players, so you get excited about anyone who is competent on the field. Athletic ability is what matters in the NFL unless you have Bill Belichick as your coach, and sorry to break it to you but Koetter is his Down syndrome twin or something.

  912. Rod Munch Says:

    The better Glennon plays the better – but I doubt they trade him, the trade deadline has to be next week, right? I don’t think people are trading anything of value in the middle of the year. The Bucs would get more as a comp pick (maybe) by just keeping him. But hopefully Glennon gets huge money, it’s good for him and the Bucs.

  913. BuccoDav Says:

    I’ve seen Joe Montana and Tom Brady eat defenses alive with the “check down pass”.
    I don’t remember anyone apologizing for tgat.

  914. Dr A Says:

    mike10: good one, much better joke than our coaching staff and gm.

  915. Chucklehead Says:

    Silent Partner

    Totally agree. You cant see it but my digital writings are dripping wth sarcasm. We need a real #2. Hump would be great as a relief receiver and or slot guy and screen specialist but he cant handle the amount of snaps we need to cover. Rest/most of the team is under talented and it really shows when one or two starters go down. Two more drafts away from being relevant. And I dont think we canuse free agency to help at all. So far Ayers andd Grimes have been nonfactors. Rebuild.

  916. Silent_Partner Says:

    As I said the other day when they lost to the Raiders, your team is depending on Louis Murphy coming back who was on the Raiders when they were really bad like 5 or 6 years ago, so not even recently, and Brandon Myers is still on your team who was also on those horrible Raider teams. Now, think about that. Those dudes are on your roster, your 53 man roster. That’s bad.

  917. BuccoDav Says:

    The trading day was last Tuesday, genius.

  918. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – If Glennon was Montana or Brady, we wouldn’t have drafted Winston. Yes, being able to checkdown is an important part of your game. The problem with Glennon is that is 90% of his game – and the Bucs don’t even run a checkdown offense, they run a deep ball offense. If Glennon was dropped into the Patriots offense I don’t think New England would be cutting Brady anytime soon. I don’t dislike Glennon, but he’s nothing special, that’s all.

  919. mike10 Says:

    look something needs to change here… and I think it’s upstairs… I just don’t see any way that can change

  920. Moebucfan Says:

    Rod you sound like a guy that just runs his fbox meaning your mouth but Can’t back any of it up I’m a pissed fan right now i dont think you would like to see this pissed off marine sorry no commas periods or grammar marks in my posts for you critical typist on here

  921. Chucklehead Says:

    Cant believe im still here reading all this

  922. USFBUC Says:

    I have never understood the people who hate on Glennon, the team has sucked the entire time he has been here so he never had a chance to show his potential. And saying he is going against backups is weak because our offense is basically a team of backups at this point with the number of injuries.

    Still think we should have taken the trade Chip Kelly offered that he claims he didn’t offer for the Jameis pick.

  923. Rod Munch Says:

    Moe – Cleaning the fighting mens underwear doesn’t make you a badass. Go jerk it to trany porn or something and calm down kiddo.

  924. BuccoDav Says:

    I’m not saying cut JW for MG. I’m just saying that JW doesn’t see the field. He locks in way too early. There is nothing wrong with gaining 5 yards on a check down rather than an overthrow for 35.

  925. Rod Munch Says:

    Chucklehead – Reading this stuff is more entertaining than watching the game.

  926. mike10 Says:

    Yea Bucco

  927. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – Well then we agree. Winston is a kid still and he’s a deep ball thrower and a playmaker and Dirk is so worried about turnovers he’s telling him to only throw to open guys. I think Winston is trying to put the ball where only his guy has a chance and that is leading to bad throws. Almost all deep ball guys are going to have issues with overthrows, Favre had many early in his career, he’ll get better as he goes along and he’d do much better if the coach just let him play and stopped preaching INTs are the devil. Manning threw a ton of INTs early and turned out OK. Favre threw a ton of INTs and turned out OK. Winston has that level of talent and assuming the coaches don’t ruin him his full game is still very much in front of him.

  928. mike10 Says:

    Rod, only problem w his putting the ball where only his receiver can get it, is that his receiver can’t get it bc it’s overthrown.
