“We About To Turn This Mofo Around Down Here”

February 6th, 2017

Last spring, a certain Buccaneer spoke up to say the team’s defense was “terrible,” and then he followed up many weeks later to upgrade the defense to “less terrible.”

That’s defensive end Robert Ayers, the bully of the Bucs’ defense.

The man is a straight shooter and doesn’t care who’s listening. He’s “nasty” and just what the Bucs needed from an outsider turned tone-setter.

So it’s worth nothing that Ayers took to Twitter over the weekend and proclaimed about the Bucs, “We about to turn this mofo around down here,” in addition to saying he loves Tampa except for the weather.

That should get any Bucs fan fired up. Ayers has been to the Super Bowl with the Broncos. He knows what it looks like. A “turnaround” for the Bucs? That can only mean playoffs.

    Please get Campbell to play along side this guy Mr. Licht. Same mean surly attitude. Would spread thru out the rest of the D like eboli.

  2. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I F@$!in love that title yo!!!.

  3. J 2.0 Says:

    Is Ayers signed? I thought he was on a 1 year deal.

  4. Kevin Says:

    I thought he was on a one year deal as well…

  5. Nick B. Says:

    J 2.0 & Kevin

    Ayers signed a 3 year deal

  6. Tom Edrington Says:

    Can we simply have a nice draft and a couple of nice free agent signings before we start boasting and contemplating the playoff?? Please!

  7. StPeteBucsfan Says:


    I hear ya bro. If we sign Campbell and Desean Jackson that frees us to grab Dalvin! Then I want Curtis Samuel a true play maker who was an RB as well as WR…Percy Harvin without the migraines and according to my son the very best player on the OSU team this year.

    If we got those two FA’s I wouldn’t mind if Licht needed three picks to get Dalvin and Samuel. Both of these guys can be difference makers!! Talk about weapons for #3..we’d be loaded…with speed out of the backfield…Dalvin and Samuel can take it to the house from anywhere on the field…and Desean Jackson would threaten from the WR which frees up ME13 for his acrobatic catches and Brate could become the next Tyler Eifert with all the open space he’d be able to find

    We’d still have four picks left to draft BPA…perhaps OL another DL or lineman.
    We wouldn’t need another RB with Quizz and Barber backing up Dalvin and Samuels who can also lineup in the backfield. Wouldn’t need another WR although if a solid prospect was there we could sign one for developmental purposes…perhaps another safety…I get really excited about the prospects of morphing into a lightning fast explosive team instead of a dull plodding team.

  8. USFBUC Says:

    Stpete I like Curtis too but isn’t he being projected more as a slot receiver?

  9. Tampa Tony Says:

    Time for the production to equal his talk

  10. LakeLandBuc Says:

    I have heard these words for the past 10 off seasons. it’s time to do it on the field and quit the talking.

  11. Defense Rules Says:

    Watching the SB last night, kept thinking “How would the Bucs fare against either of those offenses with our 2016 defense?” (since we play them both next yr a total of 3 times). Personally think we’d come out on the losing end of all 3 games based on our 2016 defense. Conclusion is that we MUST upgrade several positions on defense if we expect to make a playoff run next year.

    StPete, Calais Campbell would be a great addition, but probably only has a couple yrs left in the tank (he’ll be 31 when the season starts & signing him would probably cost $10-$12 mil). JPP is a couple years younger, has almost the same stats, & would probably cost about the same. Like both of them, but given a choice I’d rather use that $$$ to sign Dontari Poe (26) AND Charles Johnson (30) to fill both our DT & DE needs. Plus draft a DE someplace in the 3rd-7th rnd. By the way, I’m with you on Desean Jackson.

  12. SB Says:

    He loves Tampa except for the Weather. He should come up here for a bit. His a$$ would be back on a plane within a week.

  13. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Pete I Isee your vision,I likey and think its very doable. Defense says we would lose. I recall someone posting lastnight when Fameis had a healthy stable of tatgers we into atl and pummeled them. As for the Pats they are far from unbeatable,the hawks a team we whip went to they’re house an wreck they @$$ during the season. Time some of you learn to raise your weak @$$ expectations of this budding super team of ours.

  14. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    At the center of it All is a young Super star QB. When you have that your ticket for success is already punched homeboy. And if y’all haven’t noticed Brady is his idol. He is doing everything within to emulate that dude. Kobe sudied MJ to the tee. I’ll never put him over MJ but him honing his entire life after MJ made him a multiple championship winning b ball player.

  15. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    This mofo say we would lose. They were up 28 to 3 and ran the ball 4 times the rest of the way. Seem like to me they weren’t all that interested in winning the d@$! game.

  16. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Bringing up that age ishh like we don’t continue watching Belichess add older vets and win chips every other year..

  17. StPeteBucsfan Says:


    Yes Samuel is projected as a WR but with all his RB experience many view him as more of a Percy Harvin type. We could move him all over the formation and given DK’s creativity it would be fun to see how he used him.

    I’m just trying to imagine how DC’s would account for Dalvin…both running and catching out of the backfield…what LB can cover him…same for Harvin…er Samuels…if we signed either Jackson or Stills…if we’re going to hashtag “weaponsforJameis” let’s get him some freaking weapons.

    I get people who believe that RB’s can be found in later rounds…EVERY position can be filled in later rounds…QB’s are the hardest but after that it’s pretty much a tossup…lots of WR’s..Antonio Brown…come in late rounds but to be sure…an ME..JJ level you need a first round pick..same with RB’s…some in the later rounds but the real studs also require a 1st round pick. All positions are like that I’m not sure why we’ve singled out RB as such an easy spot to fill.

    Helll we gave a first round pick for the “Hamster” who gave us two solid years out of five and who was totally unable to take it to the house. Dalvin and Samuels are both players who blow away Doug Martin.

  18. Joeypoppems Says:


    The reason RB is singled out is because the success rate of RBs drafted in the later rounds. Yes you can find talent at any position in the later rounds. Teams just happen to have more success finding RBs later such as Jordan Howard last season (5th round pick who was 2nd in rushing yards).

    As far as your idea of the offense with Cook, Samuel, Evans, and D-Jax goes. I like it. I posted a similar idea on the AP article this morning just instead of Cook and Jackson I had Foreman and Garcon. And yes since I had Foreman and Samuel I did use the 1st round pick on 1 of them in my scenario (Samuel). Either one is really exciting.

  19. DB55 Says:

    It would be great if he could sell jpp on signing with the Bucs.

  20. Tampa Tony Says:

    Koetter and Jameis need to take a long hard look at their playbook and adjust it accordingly. All these deep developing routes when Jameis isn’t an accurate down the field thrower kills drives. Dirk needs to hammer it into Jameis to spread the ball around and use his backs like Brady did last night and Ryan did all year long. There were too many instances where Jameis chucked an incompletion down field in hopes of getting a big play rather than hit the open guy underneath to keep a drive alive.

    Hopefully this is part of Jameis’s learning curve and he improves a great deal going into year 3.

  21. StPeteBucsfan Says:


    when Jameis isn’t an accurate down the field thrower kills drives.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion that’s for sure but I’m not certain how many agree with you. My eyeballs do not. But I’m a freaking homer for sure! 🙂

    So I went to the stats this year. #3’s yards per attempt was identical to Aaron Rodgers…the best deep ball thrower in the league…Ryan..Cousins..and Brady were the only ones with significantly better average per throws than #3…who btw is in the top half of the league for yards per catch.

    But at the end of the day Koetter sees #3 everyday in practice…if he felt #3 was so bad throwing the deep ball I think he would stop it. Much of #3’s lack of success throwing the ball anywhere has to do with slippery fingered WR’s and some poor decisions on his part. He has a cannon for an arm and so you gotta take a chance once in awhile.

    Who on the Bucs team has ever gotten clearly behind the D and how often. We have NO deep threats because we are the slowest team in the league at skill positions.

    But I hear you…certainly #3 will work to keep improving ALL of his throws and perhaps more importantly his decision making. The rest will depend on us getting #weaponsforJameis.

  22. StPeteBucsfan Says:


    Don’t really disagree with you. And if we got Samuels AND Foreman that would be a dynamic duo for sure.

    I just noticed at least one maybe two runs last night where Devonta was great..but Dalvin would have taken those to the house…Devonta is a terrific back with great moves but Dalvin is simply faster. Of course Samuels may be even faster still.

    This years combine and pro day workouts are going to be very interesting.
    I can’t help but wonder if somebody doesn’t pull a Chris Johnson and pop a sub 4.3 as in 4.24 and just shoot up the draft charts? BTW Desean Jackson had a 4.35 at the combine…probably lost a smidge but when your that fast a smidge doesn’t matter. I’d love to sign him.

  23. Joeypoppems Says:


    The only reason I chose Garcon over Jackson was because I just feel Garcon would be a better compliment to Evans and Samuel. To me the 3 ways to generate explosive plays are Speed, Route Running, and Size Advantage. Well Evans has size advantage locked down, Samuel has speed, then Garcon has the route running ability that the other receivers dont have. To me D-Jax and Smauel would have similar roles as far as being a WR goes.

    As far as Cook or Foreman I looked at it like this. Curtis Samuel is the only receiver in the draft this year who bounced in between RB and WR to my knowledge (actual carried Im refering to, end arounds and jet sweeps dont count). His versatility in that regard makes him the clear #3 WR prospect this year.

    So I would rather take Samuel in round 1, maybe we could even take a trade offer to move back a few spots and get an extra pick and still get him, and get Foreman in round 2 than trade up for either Cook in round 1 or Samuel in round 2. The more picks we have the better.

  24. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    Is Garcon available? Do we even know yet. I’ve only heard gossip that suggested the Skins would keep one of the two and Garcon was probably the one they would keep. To be honest while I love Jackson’s speed…Garcon would be fine…Stills would be fine…we just need a legitimate #2.

  25. Defense Rules Says:

    NosBos, not sure that you’re giving the Falcons & Pats enough credit for what they accomplished in 2016. Pats had the #1 defense, AND the #3 offense. Falcons had the #1 offense, but only the 27th ranked defense. Since they BOTH have outstanding offenses, Bucs defense will have to step it up a notch to limit their scoring to something reasonable this coming season. Falcons’ offense laid 43 pts on us in that 2nd game this past season … that’s tough to overcome and our D will have to do better this year if we expect to beat them. Same goes when we play the Pats.

    We HAVE TO upgrade our defense if we expect to make it to the playoffs. Personal belief is that we need to add an exceptional DT who can at least contribute on obvious run downs. We also need at least 1 more DE (preferably 2) because our DEs historically drop like flies. We need at least 1 starting Safety, maybe 2 there also. Not to mention that if Daryl Smith retires, we’ll need a starting LB (we need another LB anyways … too thin there). Also wouldn’t hurt to add some CB depth, since Brent Grimes may opt to retire after this year; who knows? That’s at least 4 starters/key rotational players to add on defense minimum (maybe as many as 7). As I’ve said before, Jason Licht has his work cut out for him this off-season.

  26. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Jameis had an almost identical season to Eli Manning. That’s impressive considering Jameis has half the Wide Receiver weapons that Eli has. Both QBs suffer from a lack of run game.

  27. Rod Munch Says:

    Well technically he could mean going from 9-7 to 7-9.

    Hope not, but just sayin’.

  28. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Not arguing some spots could be upgraded but be here acting as if we don’t stand a chance against any team in the league to me peculier. I’m agreement with Tony Dungy “the Bucs are one playmaker away on both sides of the ball from being real contenders”.

  29. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Jbf poster’s always running to some numbers. Them people on that field are not thinking numbers man. Often the outcome of a game comes down to the will of a man. Grady Jarret made himself

  30. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    -some money lastnight.

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “We about to turn this Mofo around down here”…..sounds much like “We about to kick some aSS down here”…..that’s what Pablo’s friends hear just after they cross the Rio Grande. But that’s OK if it means Pablo’s Bucs win more.”

  32. Defense Rules Says:

    NosBos … ““the Bucs are one playmaker away on both sides of the ball from being real contenders”. So according to you NosBos, if Bucs add Dalvin Cook on offense and say add a starting safety (or whatever) on defense we’ll be real contenders this year. According to that logic, our WR corps, TEs and OLine are perfect. Same apparently with our defense … just add one piece and we’re good to go. It’d be interesting to see how many Bucs fans agree with that approach AFTER free agency & the draft are over if that’s all we add.

    And I never said that we don’t stand a chance against any team in the league. Quite the contrary. Last year I predicted a 9-7 or 10-6 season before the season ever began, based on a number of things, not the least of which was an increase in talent over 2015 and a much-improved coaching staff. If that in your opinion counts as “always running to some numbers” then I guess I’m guilty. Played a LOT of sports in my life NosBos, as well as coached several of them, and I understand full well what it takes to win. Having the will to win is a huge factor, but guess what … so is talent.

  33. GhostofSchiano Says:

    I hope ATL has a Superbowl hangover next year like Carolina did this year.

  34. NFLNut Says:


    NOSBOS is officially my fave poster on this site.

    I loved this comment and I agree with it for sure:

    “At the center of it All is a young Super star QB. When you have that your ticket for success is already punched homeboy. And if y’all haven’t noticed Brady is his idol. He is doing everything within to emulate that dude. Kobe sudied MJ to the tee. I’ll never put him over MJ but him honing his entire life after MJ made him a multiple championship winning b ball player.”

    It actually reminds me of an eBay listing I love to visit (just type “Greatest Jameis Collection” and it comes up) … I honestly go to it just to read it and watch the Jameis video-links at least once a week and it talks about the Jameis to Brady and Kobe to Jordan thing too!

    Is that your ad NOSBOS? If so, you must be one rich dude to have sportscards like that!!!! Any way you’d sell me just one of the cards? Even the least valuable one, whatever that is? I’d love to invest in Jameis!


  35. Joeypoppems Says:


    Yea the Skins can resign Garcon. They might let D-Jax walk but maybe he already has his mind set on a return to Philly. JPP could get resigned by the Giants. KC can work out a deal with Berry and Franchise Tag Dontari Poe. Pryor and the Browns wants to keep what they have there.

    My point is until Franchise Tags are given out (Feb. 15th I think) and FA actually starts we won’t know what will happen but it won’t stop us from including these players I mentioned here and others in our dream scenario for the Bucs. So I am gonna sit back and enjoy the fantasy world lol.

  36. Todd Says:

    What about m. Bennett sign him as our tight end for Winston?

  37. Joeypoppems Says:

    @NFLNut @Nosbos

    Atlanta, Detroit, Kansas City, Carolina, San Diego, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Cincinnati, Miami, Oakland, and Arizona have all had what they believe to be their answer at QB for years now and have a combined 0 Super Bowl wins.

    To say that “Once you have you franchise QB in place your ticket to success is punched” just ins’t true. Yes it is the most important part, but if he doesn’t have the right supporting cast then it really doesn’t matter. The Bucs need to keep building the supporting cast around Winston.

    And for the record I doubt Jameis is the first QB to idolize Tom Brady just like Kobe wasn’t the only player to idolize Jordan. Just because they try to emulate them doesn’t mean that it will happen.

  38. 813bucboi Says:

    @joey…I like that Samuel and foreman combo….that would be nasty…..the perfect thunder and lighting….as far as FA goes, I like garcon over djax just because of the make up of the team…not saying djax would be a bad fit for the locker room but I just feel garcon would fit right in, accept his role and flourish in it….also signing jpp, poe, Campbell could be costly….we could go after Mario Addison, Bennie Logan, Nick Fairley….all 3 are cut from the same cloth as ayers….veteran bullies that want to win….

    last night m.bennett was bragging about how he’s excited to be heading into FA as a super bowl champ…..we need to give his phone a ring….GO BUCS!!!!

  39. 813bucboi Says:

    @todd……BINGO!!!!!!…..BENNETT AND BRATE…..watch everyone hate….we could have 2 TE sets and run the run with 2 great blockers or 2 TE sets and pass….GO BUCS!!!!

  40. NFLNut Says:


    You stated:

    “Atlanta, Detroit, Kansas City, Carolina, San Diego, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Cincinnati, Miami, Oakland, and Arizona have all had what they believe to be their answer at QB for years now and have a combined 0 Super Bowl wins.”

    True but Atlanta and Carolina have been in the last two SB’s and you can’t ask for much more … and KC, Jax, Cinncy, Miami and Aiz do NOT have “franchise QB’s” at all, they have mediocre QB’s … and as for the Lions and Colts you are correct though both of those teams are among the worst run in the NFL.

    The above said ONLY the Raiders have a legit franchise QB and a decently run organization and have yet to appear in the SB with their QB … but he’s only in his 3rd year … you can’t expect instant success.

    You also stated: “The Bucs need to keep building the supporting cast around Winston.”

    I agree with you 100% and I would guess NOSBOS does too.

    You also stated: “And for the record I doubt Jameis is the first QB to idolize Tom Brady just like Kobe wasn’t the only player to idolize Jordan. Just because they try to emulate them doesn’t mean that it will happen.”

    You’re right but I see a lot of parallels between Jameis and Kobe in that both are ultra-talented, were phenoms from the get-go, were “the greatest” ever at their young ages and had the work ethic and determination to become all-time greats and actually challenge their idols accomplishments if not exceed them.

  41. Destinjohnny Says:

    All sounds good but to be elite..,..
    We need
    2 – safties
    Guard and right tackle
    Another tight end
    A solid no 2 wr

  42. Destinjohnny Says:

    Ps and a running back

  43. NFLNut Says:

    Guard? Marpet, Pamphile, Sweezy, Evan and Benenonch aren’t enough for you? I doubt the Bucs draft or even sign a guard … unless they plan to move Marpet to “C” and even then they might just roll with Sweezy and Pamphile backed up by Evan and Caleb …

  44. c-spann Says:

    the Bucs need multiple weapons similar to how ATL is setup. That is what makes it hard to defend. That means we need another TE and 2 potent WRs. Also sure up the RT position and it wouldnt hurt to upgrade LG. On defense we need a stout DT and 2 DE, CB, and S. I would like to get a bigger MLB. We still have a ways to go. If the team were able to acquire those things I think playoffs would not be out of the question.

  45. Joeypoppems Says:


    “True but Atlanta and Carolina have been in the last two SB’s and you can’t ask for much more”…. You can ask for a win…

    “and KC, Jax, Cinncy, Miami and Aiz do NOT have “franchise QB’s” at all, they have mediocre QB’s”…. I agree with you but you would think if the organization felt the same way they would have tried to make a change by now. Which is why I said “they believe they have their answer at QB” instead of calling them “franchise QBs”.

    I didn’t want to include Oakland in the list because Carr is only a few years in. I mentioned them so someone wouldn’t ask why they weren’t mentioned lol.

    Idk if I would go as far as saying Winston was a “phenom” coming out of college. Andrew Luck was a “phenom” prospect and Winston can’t be compared to Andrew Luck as a prospect. I do believe tho that he does have the phenom mindset and work ethic needed to become elite like Kobe had. They are the exceptions, not the rule.

  46. Joeypoppems Says:


    Yea I was trying to come up with a way to make our offense dynamic and versatile. Personally I’m not concerned with Desean Jackson in the locker room, actually not that concerned at all about him. He would be a great signing. As I mentioned to Stpete the only reason I chose Garcon over Jackson is their skill sets.

    IMO Garcon, Samuel, and Evans compliment each other well. Evans has something Samuel and Garcon don’t excel at, size and physicality to win 50/50 balls. Samuel has something Garcon and Evans don’t excel at, speed to stretch the field vertically. And Garcon has something Samuel and Evans doesn’t excel at, route running to create separation.

    To me Jackson and Samuel have similar skill sets, just Samuel is younger and more versatile since he can also play RB. I also like they dynamic between Samuel and Foreman in the backfield. Foreman can be that every down workhorse back and Samuel can be a change of pace speed guy that takes, idk, 3-5 carries a game similar to Tyreek Hill in KC. Then if you want to use Samuel out wide you can have Quizz or Sims in at RB to use as a receiver.

    Dynamic and Versatile is what I want our Offense to be known for. Explosiveness stems from having those 2 qualities.

    As far as the D-Line goes. I agree with you. We don’t need the big name guys. I like the idea of adding Mario Addison. to me Campbell still makes the most sense because it will be short term (unlike JPP and Poe) and he can play inside and on the edge. Then we can continue to build through the draft and draft his replacement when it is needed.

    And I wouldn’t hate bringing Martellus Bennet in. We do need to upgrade at TE. Brate can’t be the only weapon.

  47. Fred E. Buc Says:

    What? A day after the SB and we’re getting uplifting articles on the Bucs about comments from our best DE? Or analysis and inside scoop from Ira on the Lynch dissing from the HoF. Or talk about Evans and Jameis celebrations that no one knew overtly about. WHAT???!!!!!???? Why would Bucs fans want to read this when they can slide right over the website of the local rag that uses “Tampa Bay” in its name and read a meaningless blurb on the Bucs chances of going to the SB next year. 30:1 I think. Now that is really some news boys. That takes some sleuthing. That is Pulitzer prize winning coverage. NOT!

    TGFJBF (Thank God for Joe Bucs Fan).

  48. NFLNut Says:


    You stated, “Idk if I would go as far as saying Winston was a “phenom” coming out of college. Andrew Luck was a “phenom” prospect and Winston can’t be compared to Andrew Luck as a prospect. I do believe tho that he does have the phenom mindset and work ethic needed to become elite like Kobe had. They are the exceptions, not the rule.”

    I don’t know if you’re being tongue-in-sheek and dissing Luck or actually being serious, which would be far worse.

    Luck isn’t close to the prospect Jameis was coming out of college and I doubt there is a single GM in the NFL that if given the chance to start a franchise today would draft Luck ahead of Jameis. I feel it’s obvious that Jameis was merely dinged by evaluators for being perceived as a “problem” and had he not had the sordid history I doubt any of them would have failed to rate him far above Luck as a prospect.

    Luck entered the NCAA as like a top 60 prospect, had a good college career, playing for 3 years, being groomed by a former NFL QB and had a very good rookie year … Jameis was a top flight prospect from the time he played pop warner on and entered the NCAA as the #1 QB prospect out of high school … he then became the youngest Heisman winner in history, went 26-1, won a National title and entered the NFL after playing just 2 years of NCAA football and without a former NFL QB to groom him, and then proceeded to put up an even better rookie year than Luck did even though he had a far worse supporting cast!

    I like Andrew Luck and always have and I hope he can find great success in Indy and realize his potental … but he’s no Famous Jameis Winston!

  49. Joeypoppems Says:

    Dude you serious? lol. Andrew Luck was being deemed the next all time great QB when he entered the draft. Being called a once in a generation prospect. Winston didn’t have THAT level of praise when he entered the draft and it has nothing to do with his off the field questions. That is what I’m referring to.

  50. Lord Corn Says:

    I still can’t get over how Atlanta choked away that game. like seriously I’d much rather miss the playoffs than feel whatever that is. It’d be like the Raiders beating us after the way we man handled them all game .. I’d still be depressed about it today

  51. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Not my add NFLNUT ima look for it now tho. Jbf big on numbers and the like bro. Me I’m BIG on heart of man,his passion. Does he love football??? Is he hard worker??? And is he unselfish. Give me a roster full of those and we’ll consistently win for the decade. I have in my young QB that’s why I call him Super Star. You can wait to see whatever it is that will make you

  52. Mike Johnson Says:

    Give us one more mean quick/strong Defensive end and I guarantee y’all we will finish 1st in the division next season.
    DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS. Just ask the Falcons. There Defense gave out of gas in the 2nd half,

  53. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    -comfortable saying so. I like to live life slightly ahead of the curve.

  54. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    That last line for you Pop.

  55. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Defense and Offense wins championships. If the Texans and Broncos had an offense they were be Instant contenders. Same goes for the Saints if they had a defense.

    Offensive weapons need to be priority this offense. We cannot stroll out their week 1 with Adam Humpries still being our #2 receiver.

  56. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Ima put it in lamens term. He is already Greatness because he is chasing and attempting to emulate the Greatness he see in Brady. As long as he puts in the work which I know he will, he won’t make a lyer out of me I assure you. NFLNUT gose to that site weekly because it gives him goosebumps.

  57. Joeypoppems Says:


    What line is for me? About you “living life ahead of the curve”? OK, cool I guess lol.

    Ironic you look for The love of football, hard worker, and unselfishness in a player a day after Belichick says that is what he looks for during an interview that was broadcast nationally lmao. I guess you know what it takes…..

  58. Joeypoppems Says:

    When im pretty sure a few weeks ago you said you wanted guys with dreads and gold teeth to bring in attitude….. I will assume they check these new boxes you suddenly care about too lmao

  59. USFBUC Says:

    When NosBos and Tony Dungy say we just need one play maker on each side of the ball they are talking about one big impact player. They are not talking about not needing to fill other positions. If we had a running game it would have made up for the lack of WRs making dynamic plays. On defense I think we need that one DE that teams have to worry about every play.

  60. John Says:

    We beat the falcants this past year..they went to the sb. Why can’t we do it next year??

  61. Buc1987 Says:

    He sees it like some of us see it.

    Everyone always talks about ALOT of holes on this team.

    I don’t see it. A few plugs here and there and they ARE going to the playoffs.

    We’ve suffered long enough.

  62. USFBUC Says:

    I would still love to see the Bucs sign Stills, Patterson (work with him on route running) and Oline depth in FA. Then draft Leggett, Jones/Samuel/Taylor/Kupp, and Mixon/Cook. The offense would be set for several years after that.

  63. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Suddenly Numbers don’t matter to Nosbos, when he has been using Dalvin Cooks numbers in college as an argument for over a month LOL.

    I believe this ‘Mo Fo’ is already turned around. Now to enjoy the show for the next decade or so. 🙂

  65. DB55 Says:

    Some of you still don’t get it. It’s not always about talent, it’s always about heart. The Falcons offense is much more talented than NE but they don’t have the mindset to beat NE. That’s the problem with GMC all talent but no heart no want to no will to win to dominate.

    Our only hope is Jameis, Evans and (I think) Kwon. Sadly, most fans are hopelessly clueless.

  66. Buddy Says:

    So the Bucs lost a coach today? How is cam brats gonna be next year now?

  67. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    @DB55 I think it’s just Matt Ryan being a professional Choke artist. If he doesn’t take those sacks, they don’t get knocked out of field goal range, They win the game. Simple as that.

    Matt Ryan played like Matt Ryan always does when the pressure comes on.

    And Tom Brady played like Tom Brady.

  68. Buddy Says:

    Brate I meant.

  69. DB55 Says:


    Good point but ATL didn’t have the strength last night. Them boys were dropping like flies in the 4th qrt.

    Oddly the only player that “brought it” was their DT. And some say that expecting a DT to dominate a game is laughable. I know I’m ignorant and all but I’m not blind.

  70. Dennis Says:

    If anyone thinks we need another receiver after watching the SB your crazy. Give me someone who can get after the QB and someone who can protect the QB. They don’t say its starts up front for nothing. Most of you’ll want some splash running back or receiver. Ask Atlanta what second place feels like.

    sorry for duplicate

  73. StPeteBucsfan Says:


    That was ONE game and Atlanta kicked NE’s arse through most of it. Brady with his luck of the Irish through the interception that would have ended it but it bounced into Edelman’s hands. Divine intervention eh.

    It takes an entire team to win any game not just a strong D. Where was NE’s strong D in the first half…getting the backsides handed to them by a better offense.

    It was a freakish game. The Falcons were soooo successful in the first half they had less than 20 plays which left their D on the field twice as long as NE’s.

    IF Kyle Shanahan had called a better second half the Falcons win…this game was not won by NE in the trenches…it was won by a very, very lucky QB who is also very very good…great…HOF in fact. No shame for the Falcons D…shame for the Offense for not even being able to run time off the clock and put up another FG.

    I saw the EXACT SAME THING with the Bucs several losses this year…IF our offense has just been decent at time when required we win three more and are in the playoffs.

    The rules of the NFL have changed DRAMATICALLY since our last SB win. Lynch would be a non factor because his big hits would be drawing penalties. Our D would not have been able to win games 14-9 because the league is now set up for offense.

    Everybody can beotch all they want…or we can get with the program…the league clearly wants points…they set up every rule to encourage more scoring and combined with the fear of concussions mean it’s a totally different NFL.

    Hey we have the main ingredient. QB’s have always been important but you could win with a Trent Dilfer or Brad Johnson or Rich Gannon…those days are gone! Gotta have a top offense.

    Here’s what gets me soooo pumped! Matt Ryan did not play badly last night but he is inferior to our own #3 in one critical area…his pocket presence and mobility are just not the equal of #3’s. We are set at the single most important position in today’s NFL…and it’s not DT or DE!!! We need weapons for Jameis!

  74. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Dennis, ya let’s go into next season with our depleted receiving core. We addressed the Dline last season with Ayers and Spence, not every team has Von Miller. Even the patriots have a complete receiving core from #1-5. We currently have a receding core of 2 and a half. We have to score points and all help our franchise qb, can’t win every game 10-6.

  75. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Just saw on Tampa bay times website that belicheat has NEVER beat the Bucs IN TAMPA!!! EVER

  76. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    I sure did Pop cause it made all the sense to me. Sorta like when you post all that data that you merely found that someone else had already posted elsewhere. So what’s your point???

  77. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    BTW…the winning team in the past five SB’s scored an average of 32.6 games.

    Who is going to average more than four TD’s for…why Famous Jameis of course…IF we get the young talent some weapons.

    Again..I agree we lack depth…we’re still building and so there are ? re our DL and OL and safeties…but one thing is undeniable…there are NO questions about the weapons we’ve given #3. We have arguably the slowest skill position players in the entire league. We NEED SPEED!!! And we need it now!!!

  78. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Had to go back an check’em I be on the fly when I post. I still wanna see some dreads and gold teeth. What USF said cause some are slow. And numbers do and don’t mean spit dude. If we debating and you talkin he garbage then yes I’ll revert to them. If I’ll mainly emphasize my belief he raw. Get it sherlock???

  79. NFLNut Says:

    Joeypoppems … I know Luck was hyped but I do not believe it was really because anyone thought he was a generational talent and more so because he was the clear cut #1 pick and going to obviously be replacing Peyton Manning in Indy … it was just another media narrative that everyone ran with which happens all the time.

    The simple fact is that Luck was nowhere near as highly regarded as a prospect coming out of high school … and his NCAA career paled in comparison to Jameis’ time at Florida State … which means, the ONLY legitimate reason some talking heads may have talked up Luck more so than Jameis was to “create buzz”, spin their media narrative and also in Jameis’ case, to spin their media narrative that he was a trouble-maker and a major “risk” for the Bucs to draft. Reporters “create” stories, they don’t just report on real news.

    Again, I like Luck … but he’s no Famous Jameis Winston and never was.

    NOSBOS … you’re right, that eBay ad does give me goosebumps, no doubt!

  80. NFLNut Says:

    I wish FA started tomorrow and the draft was the following week … let’s go already!

    As for the drat their are so many ways the Bucs could go, especially if they are loading up on weapons for Winston, such as:

    A) Dalvin Cook/Dede Westbrook/Jordan Leggett/Zay Jones
    B) Corey Davis/Jordan Leggett/Joe Mixon/Artavis Scott
    C) OJ Howard/D’Onta Foreman/Curtis Samuel/Malachi Dupree

    I’d be geeked to see the Bucs draft any of those foursomes for Jameis to put up points with!

  81. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    @NosBos So what you’re saying to me, is that, Numbers only matter when they support what you believe. And they mean nothing with they don’t.

    Solid logic bruh.

  82. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    *when they dont*

  83. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    He was chatty with his followers all night and the night before..He acts like a regular guy..the kinda guy that wouldn’t remind you how wealthy he is and that he’s better..

    Then came the good part, Falcon fans started on him and BOOM, Robert got right back at them with some good stuff!

    Love this guy and like I have said all year long, yep, he’s my favourite Buc..and he’s funny as fook to boot..

    On another note..my TL on twitter last night and today..full of salty Falconites..and I am right now, rewatching the SB..

  84. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Not saying anything to you dude. I type and you swing from my words everyday. I’d offer an autograph but we live in different towns.

  85. SB Says:

    “I still wanna see some dreads and gold teeth.”
    That sounds about as racist as me saying that this is the only team to win the SB with 3 White WRs.

  86. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Swing from your words? Whatever that means. All I do is expose you for a rube.

  87. SB Says:

    The thing that stuck out to me most last night is that Brady had at least 4 seconds to throw the ball 90% of his dropbacks. OL play is CRUCIAL to a QB. I saw him go to his 5th read I don’t know how many times.

  88. NFLNut Says:

    SB Says … what game were you watching, or did you only watch the 2nd half and OT? I ask because Brady was under massive heat the entire first half and looked like a bum against it as well …

  89. SB Says:

    Sorry NFLNut……I was referring to most of the second half. I just couldn’t believe how much time his OL was buying him. 43 completions on 62 freakin passes!!!! QBs can’t do that by themselves. Best OL pass protection OL in football resides in NE.

  90. SB Says:

    Dallas’ OL opens Massive holes for Zeke or he couldn’t be what he is. They can’t pass protect like NE’s can. Imagine if Jameis had as much time as Brady. He is 3x as mobile as Brady so when the pocket finally collapses he has better escapability on top of the fact that he was the Best QB throwing on the run this yr. I am all in for any OL upgrades possible this yr. #WEAPONforwinston.

  91. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Okay whatever that means but I have a question based last nights game why exactly are you calling Matt Ryan a choker???

  92. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    SB that’s commencer not hardly racist you might reading inn a little too much bro. I name so many pro players with either dreads or gold teeth or combo of both. Meaning we seem too currently like’em clean cut cause I don’t see any dreads or gold teeth on our roster. Would be a shame to pass on good football players because they look a little less clean cut bro.

  93. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    If you pick up racist vibes from me bro just simply not rap again man.

  94. TampaTown Says:

    Wait a minute…he doesn’t like our weather? What’s up with that?

  95. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Okay I’ll give up the gold teeth.. Just go get that dread head from FSU Mr. Licht.

  96. Joeypoppems Says:


    There is a difference between copying stats and copying philosophies. Stats are facts. Philosophies are opinions.

    When I talk about these players entering the draft it is after I watched them and formed MY OWN opinion on them. I can do that because I understand how the game of football works.

    What I dont do is change my philosophy to match what other people think to sound smart. Im smart enough to come up with my own opinions.

  97. Tbbucs3 Says:


    Sooo Preston Parker?

  98. Joeypoppems Says:


    I was never and I still am not referring to when Luck and Winston were High School Prospects. It might have been a media driven narrative for Luck, I will give you that. There are execs in the league that would still take Mariota over Winston (which I dont agree with) and I bet if you add Luck as an option they all go with Luck over both of them.

    I love everything about Jameis Winston. And I think the Bucs will be contending for a SB title before the Colts do because Grigson screwed that franchise over lol

  99. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Why am i calling Matt Ryan a choker? Ha! Is that even a question? The guy just choked away a 25 point lead in the super bowl. And has a long standing reputation of choking in big games.

  100. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Check Matt Ryan stats his play was solid. Won’t see a single INT and the sack fumble was a blown assignment by Devonta. Ryan didn’t blow a 25 point lead Kyle Shanahan did by only calling 4 run plays after being up 28 to 3. Simply running the ball more even if the rush attempts didn’t result in much yardage would’ve effectively eaten up more clock making the come back more difficult.

  101. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Pop if you say so but not a single soul on here can confirm a word you said other than yourself right??? Riigghhtt.

  102. Joeypoppems Says:


    If you are talking about nobody being able to prove my opinions right then yes you are correct. There is no right and wrong in opinions.

    If you are talking about stats I use then yes they can prove that I am right or wrong. Its called Google….

  103. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Pop oneday you’ll learn I enjoy the back and fourth, coming across smart or dumb is the least bit concern to me. I can tell you’re a highly intelligible individual bro.

  104. Joeypoppems Says:

    I enjoy the back and forth as well. Thats why I respond to passionate fans like yourself and others lol

  105. orlbucfan Says:

    Ole Beli-cheat has always had a thing about Tampa Bay. He got caught spying on DUNGY’S team in preseason years ago. His people constantly watch what the Bucs do via cuts, waivers, etc. I’m surprised he didn’t jump on ASJ. Patriots had a lot of zebra help in the game, big reason why I skipped it. Lady Gaga was ABsolutely FABulous tho!! NosBos, you’re a mess. Anyone having problems with dreadlock hairdos needs to check out Richard Sherman. Kid went and graduated from Stanford on a full scholarship which helped him escape the ‘hood. Super smart, period. I don’t know if he has gold teeth? LOL. We need OL/DL depth & Licht, DK, and MSmith will address it. 2017 promises to be fun if you are a Bucs fan!!! ‘Bout time, too!

  106. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I can’t help myself Orl☺. And GaGa was indeed fabulous.

  107. Dennis Says:

    St Pete and TBBucs I hear you and understand the where the league is headed. But I also mentioned the O line. Ok say we have what we need on the D line (by the way ask denver if their D line won that game) I would take a Joe Thomas off the board in a heart beat. I say if we had a better O line we would’ve won more
