Gameday Tampa Bay!

November 13th, 2016


Game 9

Bears (2-6) at Bucs (3-5)

Kickoff: 1 p.m.

TV: WTVT-TV Channel 13; DirecTV Channel 710.

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (WDAE-AM 620 and WFUS-FM 103.5 in Tampa-St.Petersburg region); SiriusXM Channel 137.

Weather: Pretty damned good. Per, tailgaters will enjoy temperatures in the high-70s in the morning and by kickoff, the temperature should be 82. The temperature should remain steady throughout the game. All under bright, sunny, west-central Florida Chamber of Commerce skies.

Odds: Per, Bears -2.5.

Outlook: Color Joe dubious that a guy who has had one practice at full participation since mid-September can some how throw on the superhero cape and rescue the Bucs. That’s what a lot of fans seem to be hoping with Doug Martin who reportedly will suit up for today’s game against the Monsters of the Midway. There is little the past two weeks that gives Joe much hope. The Bucs, if nothing else, have demonstrated they can get napalmed by decent quarterbacks. Bratty Jay Cutler, for having a well-earned reputation for being an I-don’t-give-a-s(p)it quarterback, can light up a defense at times. Feel free to explain in detail to Joe how today, all of a sudden, the Bucs will find a pass rush? It seems through plain talk and innuendo, the Bucs are blaming their newfound olé pass defense on no pass rush. The Bucs haven’t had a pass rush since Michael Bennett was run out of One Buc Palace for no good reason. Then throw in the fact the Bears return injured Pro Bowl guards Kyle Long and Josh Sitton today, and why today should the Bucs magically find a pass rush?  Joe has this pit-of-your-stomach feeling, and it’s not from shoveling boneless chicken wings and countless beers  at Hooters down his gullet. Joe fears Cutler will do to the Bucs just what Matty Ice, Derek Carr and Carson Palmer has done before them: Go all arena league on the Bucs. Until the Bucs can prove otherwise to Joe, the nausea for fans at the Den of Depression will likely continue.

    I think I heard Mr. Gene Deckerhoff warming up his vocal cords so he can yell at the end of today’s game, ” BUCS WIN!!, BUCS WIN!!! BUCS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lol Tampa dreaming!

  3. SB with Jameis Says:

    Meh, after a six pack I’d do her

  4. LakeLandBuc Says:

    It shouldn’t take much effort to beat a 2-6 team at home. If not, then something have to give. Let’s see, we beat a 0-0 Falcons team. A 1 win Panthers team, a 1 win 49ers team. Now is the time to advance and beat a 2 win Bears team.

    Speaking for Pablo

    That’s a really nice picture of what may be a hot chica…..but Pablo wonders….Pablo thinks that looks like the makings of a package down below. Pablo looked for the telltale Adam’s apple….but it was hidden by a shadow. Pablo is paranoid on Sunday mornings after once waking up next to a Dale Mabry TS. She was very hot….and sort of looked like ASJ”

  6. D-Rome Says:

    The Bears have better weapons on offense. We already know this defense is far and away worse than last year. Bears win.

  7. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    LMAO@ Pablo!! Nowadays, you just don’t know..

    On another note..on my way to Publix to pick up our usual food trays for today, I ran into a crap load of Bear fans..damn them just put me in a raunchy mood..being that I don’t even like people to begin with…these people almost pushed me to the edge..


    Today, it has to be a win..


    Can I tax deduct all this food through out the year!?

  8. Kevin Says:

    This defense makes backup quarterbacks look like pro bowlers. Jay Cutler is about to look like a quarterback god today. I really REALLY hope Jason Licht makes the right call and dismisses Mike Smith before the season is over and start the transition for next season. It is impossible to win games when you have far and away the worst defense in the league.

  9. Chris Says:

    Very dude like picture Joe. Slipping. Of course , you could show the brunette in white every day and I would be happy.

  10. MadMax Says:

    Cant even watch!! Good luck i guess….season was over last game for me, especially after watching that sh!t show. Can barely even look forward to the draft…smh

  11. Strider ....Sec 147 Says:

    Maybe it clicks today for Winston and he dominates

  12. Kobe Faker Says:

  13. LakeLandBuc Says:

    We beat a 0-0 Falcons team. We beat a 1 win Panthers team, we beat a 1 win 49ers team. I don’t know if we have enough weapons to beat a 2 win team.

    I don’t know she might need more then a six pack to do you.

  16. iamabuc Says:

    Image Approved.

    Fellas, this is Cutler’s wife. Joe should always find the hottest wife of the opposing team and post her on gameday. Maybe you do and I just haven’t noticed it until now.
