Buccaneers 14, Seahawks 5

November 27th, 2016


What a statement by the Buccaneers defense!

Holy crap!

Joe’s feeling like it’s 1997. What a dominant performance for your 6-5 — and now very relevant — Bucs.

Two drives into the third quarter and Russell Wilson was 5-for-14 for 33 yards. Unreal!

Drive after drive after drive the Bucs defense came up big. And what a moment it was for Alterraun Verner, whose father died Friday, to pick Wilson late in the first half. After getting tackled, Verner was mobbed by a majority of his teammates at midfield. Verner had other strong moments, too.

A sack and a half for Noah Spence, and he was factor in the run defense. A sack and a half, too, for Gerald McCoy.

It was simply a total effort on defense. Mike Smith deserves free beers and dinner all week across town.

Joe cannot overstate how great this defensive effort was.

On the offensive side of the ball, Mike Evans made the vaunted Seattle secondary look like Largo High School. Evans now has his third 1,000-yard season in the books.

Lot of heroes today for the Bucs, but make no mistake, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, stirs the drink. His newfound consistency and the power of his leadership is rubbing off.

Stick with Joe through the night from the happy Bucs locker room.

  12. JerseyBuc Says:

    Wow what a game!!! Defense was swarming all night. Secondary was shutting down Seattle’s receivers, after that straight-up NASTY pass rush was eating Russell Wilson’s dinner all night.

  13. BucNTennesse Says:

    Are we contenders now? Was this the Statement game we have been waiting for? I think we just put the rest of the NFC on notice, what do you guys think?

  14. Jersey Buc Says:

    Vintage Bucs game from the late 90’s, early 2000’s. Meaningful games in December. You can’t ask for more. Well done!

  27. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well done, team.

  28. MadMax Says:


    2 SACKS!

  29. Bob in valrico Says:

    great defensive game.Great plays by Macdougald at the end of the game. john lynch-like hit to knock a completion to the ground.McCoy showed what he can do with complementing teammates.Russell and Spence made a big difference also.

  30. Defense Rules Says:

    Last week, tons of media & fans didn’t give the Bucs a chance of winning this game. On Friday wrote … “Bucs won’t win unless our defense really stands tall. Our D will have to force 3-and-outs consistently or we’ll be in trouble” and predicted a Bucs victory. Guess what … Bucs defense stood REALLY TALL and only gave up ONE 3rd down conversion all game, forced 3 turnovers, and had 6 sacks. DLine showed what it can do when healthy. Awesome game Bucs! Keep ’em coming.

  31. tmaxcon Says:

    great win… huge play by GMC. biggest win in years. defense was out of its mind. anyone else but wilson and they have twice the sacks.

  32. D-Rome Says:

    Five points.

    Let that sink in…..5.

    In terms of football that’s a heroic effort. I’m so happy with the Bucs effort today! GMC and LVD were all over the place making huge plays!

  33. BigHogHaynes Says:

    I would like to say the so called Ice Cream Man was dishing out ice cream cones today, the edge Rush was coming from both sides today, have we found another edge rusher in Russell, 5 games to play with 3 games to win to show improvement over the last REGIME! Which I expect this team to do! VERY GOOD TEAM WIN!

  34. Lord Corn Says:

    don’t even know what to say other than wow this is the best win in a looooooong time ! Change is here! Time to believe! Even the biggest haters here have to be rejoicing to some degree

  35. BucsFanFromSaintsLand Says:

    Just bought my tickets to the Saints vs Bucs on Christmas Eve. I REALLY hope that game has playoff implications!

  36. BucGator Says:

    Dominating victory!!!

  37. Erik w/ Clean Athletics 'The Kwon Alexander of Bucs Fans' Says:



  38. Phred Says:

    It was only Seattle. It was only a 9 point win. Dirk has clearly lost the locker room. We obviously should’ve taken Mariota over Jameis. Why did we ever fire Lovie?

    Anybody else notice the Bucs pass defense got gashed by Wilson in the first half for 1 yard passing? And the Seahawks O-Line kept the Bucs down to 6 sacks. How can anybody celebrate this “victory.”

  39. orlbucfan Says:

    Anyone badmouthing GMC is in MAJOR trouble with me. My gawd, Cardiac Bucs!!! Good thing I have low blood pressure!!! GO MIGHTY BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. K1ngadroc Says:

    Great game! McCoy Haters… STFU!

  41. Kobe Faker Says:

    kobe Faker jinx. 2-0

    Be nice to me

    Absolute worst playcalling i ever seen by koetter the clown

    Lets go bucs!

  42. VegasBuc Says:

    Who is Ryan Russell??? Wow.. That boy good! #stepupkid

  43. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    We just beat Seattle !!!! What???!!!!!!

  44. Ndog Says:

    Hey where Bighog and Kobe Faker to tell us how bad we suck?

  45. Eric Says:

    Wow, I never thought the defense I saw earlier this year would turn into this.

    Truly amazing turnaround.

    Not like this is flukish play, to beat KC and Seattle in convincing fashion is incredible.

    If anything both final scores do not reflect how the bucs dominated those two games.

    Somebody pinch me.

  46. Rojas Says:


    Ryan Russell played well, but he only got 1 sack. The other was awarded to Kwon Alexander.

  47. PanthersSuck! Says:

    Proud to be a Bucs fan

  48. jameisaintnopunk Says:

    hey big hog, no offence intended brother, but the vast improvement,, over stone face smith and the last regime is pretty evident, when was the last time we saw a defensive juggernaut like we seen today, against the mighty seahags to boot!!! well done men, my hat is off to all ya, offense and defense alike go bucs.

  49. Willy D Buc Says:

    R.I.P. Den of Depression

  52. MadMax Says:

    Oh ok Rojas, thnx.

  53. Bird Says:

    You guys. Kobe the faker is a troll. He actually dogged koetter. What a clown that people should stop responding too. Think he is a pissed off jags fan

  54. OneLove Says:

    What a GREAT TEAM WIN!

  55. Dirks great gran pappy Says:

    How can anyone say there isn’t a drastic improvement over the last regime

  56. Kevin Says:

    Great win Bucs! Not 100 sold on MikeSmith yet but Im getting much much closer. Great win go Bucs!!!!!

  57. Bob in valrico Says:

    D-line made the coverage look good,with the exception of Macdougald who was on fire.First the bone jarring tackle to eliminate a first down catch. and then the game saving interception.He deserves a gameball!
    Gmc led by example on the d-line and his play helped others get sacks.think of it 4 d-lineman wreaked havoc on Russell Wilson one of the smartest and best
    QB’s in the league.All these guys deservge gameballs since offense struggled to score in second half,and they saved the game.

  58. Bucsfan4life Says:

    It’s good to see everyone celebrating. Great game all around by Tampa bay. Especially the punt team

  59. orlbucfan Says:

    NoSBoS is back–so why ain’t he posting on here??? I’m still in shock even though I said we would win.

  60. The Buc Realist Says:

    @Bucs fan #7423

    Just having a celebratory drink!!!!! Smiling and feeling very vindicated!!!! For all the good things that are falling the Bucs way!!!!!! The plan is going accordingly!!!!!!!

    And use all the “!!!!!!!!!” you need tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go America!!!!!!!

    Go joe writing 10 offense stories tomorrow while the defense looks Oh so dominate!!!!!!!!

    Go BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. lightningbuc Says:

    Just got home from the game. Had Seahawk fans in front of me, beside me, and behind me. Most fun I’ve had at a game in 10 years. Simple as that!

  62. Buccfan37 Says:

    Bucs win Bucs win!! Amazing effort all around. Break up the Bucs!

  63. Warthog Says:


  64. Broy34 Says:

    The win that changes EVERYTHING. To those who didn’t throw in the towel. Stand up be proud. To the doubters- In Famous we trust. He and Number 55 lit the fire

  65. Jeagan1999 Says:

    That’s the kind of win playoff bound teams win!

  66. satchseven Says:

    now remember the seahawks got one of the worst o-lines also .i live in Seattle they suck at pass protection. but i was surprised how well the secondary covered ,those were coverage sacks,replay showed no one was open

  67. Poser Bucs Poster Says:

    One of those sitting on the edge of your seat games. Good to get that feeling back after 14 years. Wow, good things happen to those who wait. Kick those Cowboys where they sit on their high horses and knock them back to earth! Go TB Bucs!

  68. webster Says:

    Dont forget, majority of the nation saw this beat down.

  69. BuckyLover Says:

    Great defensive performance. But…. We could not get to the end zone in the last three quarters. Missed onefield goal and then passed on two other chances trying to get closer for our poor kicker. A lot to like on those first two drives but they adjusted their defense and we could not respond. Good progress but we still need work

  70. Bob in valrico Says:

    forgot Lvd with his forced fumble recovery and return.Great job,Mike Smith ,you have got to turn this guy loose!

  71. Frank Pillow Says:

    We are out of the dark times- lead by a messiah#3, who has lifted this team in ways only the greats like #s 63, 56, 99, 55 have done…is this SF 1997? Sure as heck feels like it! Let’s keep this thing rolling!!!!
