    Kick some Bear ass!

  14. DB55 Says:

    I have explo sive diarrhea

  15. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Stadium looks empty

  16. Pickgrin Says:

    Reedy is Kick returner. Good for him.

  17. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Oh man, if he wasn’t tripped up that might have been a first.

  18. Pickgrin Says:

    Now we are moving the ball

  19. DB55 Says:

    Alan Cross = mvp

  20. CalBucsFan Says:

    Love the rhythm Bucs!

  21. DB55 Says:

    Why sims always tripping over himself? He’s a WR not a RB.

  22. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice job D. Smith – eye roll

  23. NJBucsFan Says:

    Donavan Smith sucks at tackle.

  24. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Donovan Smith sucks and is gonna get jameis killed he whiffed on back to back plays

  25. Blake Johnson Says:

    Ugly, ugly, ugly, whiff on that sack by Donny Smith.

  26. Rrsrq Says:

    That’s what I don’t want to see, struggles in the red zone, but at least we can feel confident in the kicking game

  27. SB Says:

    DS 76 got BURNED there.

  28. cmurda Says:

    Donovan Smith with the drive-killing ole. At least Folk hit the FG even if it wasn’t pretty

  29. Blake Johnson Says:


    Burned isn’t the right word. He was in position to make that block and just whiffed.

  30. CalBucsFan Says:

    Not one pass to Howard? Only one to Brate?

  31. Bucamania Says:

    Decent start. They’ll get clicking. D needs to stop the run early.

  32. DB55 Says:


    And there I thought the oline held up pretty well. Lol

  33. DoNUTS Says:

    Why is stadium empty on opening day?

    Good drive by the Bucs. Nice pass on the out to Evans. Folk is already lowering my blood pressure on kicks.

  34. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Points on the first drive of the season….I’ll take it!

  35. DB55 Says:

    MGM STAND UP!!! Lmao

  36. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Is the ship not firing today? Didn’t hear cannons after we got in the red zone and points from the FG

  37. Mike in LOL Says:

    Good stuff in the run there!!!

  38. Blake Johnson Says:

    Who said GMC cant stuff runs?

  39. SB Says:

    THERE YOU GO TMAXIPAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Love the fire in the Def. line and the crowd noise!

  41. WeAreLost Says:

    Bears are rattled.

  42. DB55 Says:

    Blake Johnson Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 1:17 pm
    Who said GMC cant stuff runs?
    Talk to me after the 1st qrt. Lol

  43. Rrsrq Says:

    My other issue, getting a three and out (the bend don’t break defense)

  44. DB55 Says:

    Mama there goes that man again

  45. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Umm it seems 28 gets picked on every game and cant cover inside routes

  46. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Hargrave is excellent at tackling after he lets them catch it.

  47. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Tired of VH3 getting picked on with these crossing patterns!

  48. cmurda Says:

    Too easy. Conte can’t cover anybody. D looking extra soft. Dink and dunk. Did we not know it was coming?

  49. Pickgrin Says:


  50. cmurda Says:

    And then MG8 giveth.

  51. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Another freaking crossing pattern!

  52. MadMax Says:

    Interception Kwon!!!!!!!!!!!!

  53. DB55 Says:

    And his caped crusader

  54. Zwak Says:


  55. Blake Johnson Says:


  56. WeAreLost Says:

    Fukcing KWON!!!!!!

  57. ColoradoBucs Says:

    That was sick!! KA58!

  58. DB55 Says:

    I want the Bucs to win for nosbos sake. He might hurt someone or himself if we lose this game.

  59. DB55 Says:

    Kwon’s mom is hot. Don’t tell him I said that. Lol

  60. Blake Johnson Says:

    Ugh, we need Martin back asap.

  61. cmurda Says:

    Come on D Jax. Get the first dude. You must not understand our history on 3rd and short

  62. cmurda Says:

    Dirk, are you serious dude? Why run Sims….. ever

  63. Blake Johnson Says:

    Sims on 3rd and 1? Cmon on now Dirk that’s just dumb.

  64. DB55 Says:

    DB55 Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 1:11 pm
    Why sims always tripping over himself? He’s a WR not a RB.

  65. SB Says:

    Our run blocking just PLAIN SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. MadMax Says:

    Buc Ball bich!!!!!!!!!!!

  67. CalBucsFan Says:

    I thought the microphone dummy said Kwon took the ball out of the TE’s hands? Why must we have another year of listening to Dick Stockton at home games?

  68. Blake Johnson Says:


  69. Pickgrin Says:

    Beautiful strip by Ryan Smith – Lynch is Johnny on the spot

  70. Zwak Says:


  71. WeAreLost Says:

    My god

  72. Blake Johnson Says:

    Ryan Smith may be hot garbage at corner but hot damn he is a special teams ace.

  73. Pickgrin Says:

    Evans !!!! YES!!!!!! TD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  74. MadMax Says:


  75. Pickgrin Says:

    or maybe not……

  76. Blake Johnson Says:


  77. Rrsrq Says:

    Let it roll

  78. DB55 Says:

    Winston dunking on them now. Lmao

  79. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Cmon refs it’s a TD!!

  80. Pickgrin Says:

    sweet! nice pass and great catch & footwork

  81. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Winston to Evans for the TD! I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing that a lot this season!

  82. Blake Johnson Says:

    Aye idc if that looked a bit iffy. I’ll take them points all day long.

  83. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Ok we’re good!!

  84. cmurda Says:

    I like how JW and Dirk went for the jugular. Beautiful pass and catch.

  85. Rojas Says:

    Let’s get this ball back defense!! Wear this defense down early! Only complains I have so far is Oline, an Corner but the game is early ! They’re shaking off the rust !

  86. Pickgrin Says:

    Great ST play by Ryan Smith and Lynch

  87. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Blake Johnson, did you change your name??

  88. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Probably benefited from one of those situations where there wouldn’t have been enough to overturn

  89. JameisDungy Says:

    This RB core Licht has assembled is a mess.

  90. DoNUTS Says:

    Solid start and smart play for #3 today. I like the fast start and hope that continues during season. They are checking off the boxes for keys of the game.

    Evans is displaying his case why he might be better than Antonio Brown.

  91. SeattleBuc Says:

    stringing good plays together. First David TFL, Kwon pic. Then special teams and Evans TD

  92. Blake_bucsfan Says:


    Uhhhh yeah idk how that happened lol.

  93. SoCoBucsFan Says:

    Sims is not a RB. Not a true RB. He’s more of a slot receiver in my eye

  94. DB55 Says:

    Spence making a play 8 yards downfield. Hustle! And is gohlston owning his man or am I seeing thing?

  95. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Lol, Blake! I thought it was you! Winston’s on point! Mike Evans has the best toe-drag in the league!!

  96. DB55 Says:

    SoCoBucsFan Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 1:35 pm
    Sims is not a RB. Not a true RB. He’s more of a slot receiver in my eye

    Profound did you think of that just now?

  97. unbelievable Says:

    lol DB

  98. aj Says:

    You’ve got to setup Sims in the middle on occasion, so he is more effective when they get him on the edge in the passing game.

    Dirk is setting up a play for later in the game to fake Sims up the middle, get the linebacker to bite, then hitting him wide open in the flat. Trust in Dirk.

  99. unbelievable Says:

    Well that 2nd drive stalling was a bummer, but the offense has been looking real good for the 1st time playing in 3 weeks!

    Would like to see the defense tighten up more on this drive. Go Bucs! Crush Glennon!

  100. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Lol yeah, Mike is quickly becoming the best damn Wide-out in the game.

    And hot damn Kwon is looking good.

  101. cmurda Says:

    McClain is the glaring secondary weakness. No pressure from this D Line

  102. DB55 Says:

    Put Elliot back in please

  103. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Check down after check down. People were actually worried about facing this guy?


  104. ColoradoBucs Says:

    You’re so right about WG92. We’re getting some great penetration. Need to finish that pressure with some sacks. They’ll come as the o-line wears down.

  105. MadMax Says:

    GJ Spence and David!!!!!!!!

  106. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  107. cmurda Says:

    Bring pressure and Glennon will give it up. Good blitz call Mike Smith

  108. Pickgrin Says:


  109. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Case in point!!!

  110. Blake_bucsfan Says:



    Ah… Good ol’ statue Mike Glennon.

  111. DB55 Says:


  112. Bucamania Says:

    SPAWN baby!!! sack fumble

  113. unbelievable Says:


    That’s how you capitalize on a 3rd and long!

  114. Rrsrq Says:

    Ok Spence, Ok LVD, Ok Kwon, yeah, yeah

  115. WeAreLost Says:

    Well the bucs are going to be insane this year.

  116. Bird Says:

    I’m in.


    Spence to lavonte

  117. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Three turnovers and we finally scored in the first quarter!

    Man…this team is going to be a monster!

  118. Bird Says:

    Jameis to Evans ?

    Got both in draft kings

  119. NJBucsFan Says:

    Did we trade Donavon Smith to the bears for that drive? Looked like him trying to block Winston’s backside

  120. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Put your foot on their THROATS Tampa!!!!!!

  121. DB55 Says:

    DB55 Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 1:36 pm
    Spence making a play 8 yards downfield. Hustle! And is gohlston owning his man or am I seeing thing?


  122. unbelievable Says:

    Oh man if we go up 17 – 0, this defense is gonna start teeing off…

  123. MadMax Says:

    Come on JW, you underthrew DJax!!

  124. DB55 Says:

    Yo Spawn got the holding call on the previous play too right? That’s 2 sacks in my book

  125. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Damn. If that was 3 yards more to the outside…

  126. Zwak Says:

    JW needs to put some more zip on the short passes!

  127. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Donovan Smith is just not good enough to win a championship with.

  128. roger borras Says:

    I’m not hearing the cannons on TV. Are they firing them?

  129. unbelievable Says:

    lady ref kinda f@kin us with that spot or what?

  130. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Put the dagger in!

  131. Capt.Tim Says:

    Defense , other than Hargreaves, is looking good.
    Conte has saved his butt s couple times now.

    And still need Pressure, from someone besides McCoy. Great to see Spence hitting Glennon

  132. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Look at OJ straight up driving dudes off the line. He basically got that first down for us there.

  133. Rojas Says:

    D Smith just let Floyd through. I see they’re putting more tight ends on his side to help with blocking

  134. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Like this play calling, Bucs fans!

  135. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    D Smith should be an RT and hed be average at that, he has whiffed on 6 plays

  136. unbelievable Says:

    Blake- NOS said earlier to hit him up, not sure if you saw…

  137. cmurda Says:

    Ugh. That’s one JW barely missed.

  138. Blake_bucsfan Says:


  139. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    They scared out there on defense. LOL

  140. NJBucsFan Says:

    D Smith should be a guard

  141. MadMax Says:

    TD JR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  142. Rrsrq Says:

    This is how we do it

  143. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice block Marpet! TD!

  144. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Here we go baby. Defense about to eat

  145. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Remember when the talking heads said that the Bears Def would beat us up all day??

  146. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    B-U-C C-A-N E-E-R-S! GO BUCS!

  147. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Wish the cannons would fire!

  148. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Keep going offense! Pretend you’re down by 17!

  149. Capt.Tim Says:

    This offense is gonna be great!

  150. unbelievable Says:

    17 – 0 Yea baby!

  151. cmurda Says:

    Side note: Marpet is still our best O Lineman even at Center. He looks great.

  152. SB Says:

    We OWN Every single facet of this game!

  153. DB55 Says:

    ColoradoBucs Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 1:54 pm
    Remember when the talking heads said that the Bears Def would beat us up all day??

    Quote or it didn’t happen

  154. Rrsrq Says:

    One for JR, one for ME, now let’s get Brate, OJ, DJax one, maybe Godwin too

  155. Blake_bucsfan Says:


    Yo lol i didn’t see that but preciate you looking out homie.

    and @NosBos for sure, my phone is broken right now, but Ima reserve that Box and hit u up on here for sure.

  156. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  157. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:


  158. MadMax Says:

    GJ Ward!!!!!!!

  159. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice play Ward

  160. Bird Says:

    Tj ward.


  161. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Jerry Eckwood on the tackle!

  162. Blake_bucsfan Says:


    Now that was a hit baby!

  163. stanglassman Says:

    Wish they’d tell us w

  164. Bucamania Says:


  165. Zwak Says:

    Nice play WARD!

  166. unbelievable Says:

    TJ Ward was like a heat seeking missile on that!

  167. DB55 Says:

    Yo that play was so nasty it surprised me didn’t expect it from a Buc uniform yo damn what did I just see? # TDWARDaGROWNMAN

  168. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  169. unbelievable Says:

    damn that was a good pass from Glennon

  170. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Damn… Grimes gotta break passes like that up.

  171. Zwak Says:

    Thought Lynch was out there for a minute..

  172. Pickgrin Says:

    Kwon out. Hope his hammy heals quickly

  173. Bird Says:

    Kwon hammy. Ouch

  174. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Nagging hammy for kwon…. That sucks. Won’t matter this game but hopefully he won’t be plagued by that ish all year.

  175. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Hamstrings suck.

  176. unbelievable Says:

    Kwon hammy…. no bueno

  177. Rrsrq Says:

    Dang, guess that extra week didn’t give Kwon enough time, but at least he hopefully will not have to play the rest of this game, depth at LB, we shall see.

  178. Pickgrin Says:

    Time for Beckwith to shine at MLB.

  179. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Kwon got a hamstring?

    That means Beckwith will move to the middle, right?

  180. Pickgrin Says:

    Joe Dirt may be brought up to the active list depending on how serious Kwons hamstring pull is….

  181. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Do they activate Riley next week for the backup role? Who would they put on waivers?

  182. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice play Beckwith.

  183. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Nice play beckwith

  184. unbelievable Says:

    Bonzai- yes, I believe so.

    Cam Lynch gonna play SAM then?

  185. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    lol, Pickgrin you keep beating me to the punch.

  186. Pickgrin Says:

    Let the route begin!!!!!!!!

  187. Capt.Tim Says:

    Thats the Glennon I know!

  188. MadMax Says:

    BOOM McClain!!!!!!!!!!!!Hotdam!!!!!!!!!!

  189. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    24 points! That’s what I predicted!

    I think I underestimated!

    Glennon will make more mistakes now.

  190. Buc Neckid Says:

    For Those of you wanting to still see Glennon Throwing TD’s in Ray Jay…
    There you go

  191. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    glennon needs to stop sucking so bad bears dont need to put that rookie in

  192. cmurda Says:

    Wow. That was beautiful. At this rate, there could be a Trubisky sighting.

  193. DB55 Says:


  194. Mcruzer Says:

    McClain, yippee Kai ayyyyyy.

  195. Blake_bucsfan Says:




  196. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Mike Glennon Sob.

  197. MadMax Says:

    Nope…..not stepped out of bounds…………TD Baby….Hell yeah Robert!!!!!!! Way to go!!!!!!!!!!

  198. Redtop5588 Says:

    Pick 6 baby 2 picks 2 fumble recs 1 sack boy we balling

  199. Bird Says:

    Hey all. He is fine. Or better than tear Precautionary.

    Did you see kwon run down sideline

    He is better than out

  200. Pickgrin Says:

    Great technique by McClain. Sweet play with the pick six

  201. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The Mike Glennon Mob has been declared defunct!

  202. ColoradoBucs Says:


    Sorry man, I don’t have an exact quote for you. Heard it on NFL network this week with regards to our offense not taking a meaningful snap since preseason & the Bears playing pretty fast & physical against Atlanta last Sunday.

  203. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Still need a kicker tho

  204. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Bears may as well go home now.

  205. MadMax Says:

    Come on Folk….REALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  206. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Lol look at that Beet red neck! Thats the Mike Glennon I know.

  207. cmurda Says:

    Wow. The kicking curse is not dead.

  208. Bird Says:

    Great call by coaches on slot corner

  209. Buc Neckid Says:

    Aguay-no Part 2 missed the extra point… Crap

  210. Pickgrin Says:

    Nicky baby – its an extra point….. Geez. At least that missed kick won’t come back to haunt us. Bucs are rolling.

  211. DB55 Says:



  212. DB55 Says:

    Before we get tooooooooooooo excited let’s keep in mind it’s the bears?

  213. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bengals have a really good rookie kicker on their practice squad.

  214. david majercin Says:

    When did we get McClain36?

  215. Bird Says:

    Db 55

    I hear yah. But bears should have beat Falcons week 1. Did you watch?

  216. DB55 Says:

    The raiders have a back-up that might be better than the starter

  217. Blake_bucsfan Says:


    Real talk, I’m just extra hyped up due to the worry warts thinking we were gonna get embarrassed all week long.

    MGM can smd.

  218. aj Says:

    Beckwith is in the middle and Glanton is on the strong side. Glanton has already flashed a couple of times. He is pretty good for a backup.

  219. Bucamania Says:

    Bucs D teeing off. Folk looks shakely at best.

  220. unbelievable Says:

    DB I was just about to say- the Bears are not a good team.

    But how many times do we struggle against teams like this in the past? This is how SHOULD be playing. Loving it!

  221. Mcruzer Says:

    DB55, it’s an NFC team. I will take it, it may matter in the hunt later.

  222. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I think this means that Atlanta kinda sucks

  223. Kstoges Says:

    Yo didn’t Kobe faker say this was gunna be close? Lmfao

  224. Capt.Tim Says:

    This is the best Lavonte David has looked in 3 years!
    Great sign of things to come!

  225. aj Says:

    I’ve been wondering how bad the Bears o line stinks, seeing as the defense is actually putting some pressure on the QB today.

  226. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    I’m at the game. Pray McCoy is ok!

  227. DB55 Says:

    Yes I saw the Atl game reluctantly it was the only game I could get during the storm. F u c k e r s

    I’ll take it too. Must admit I was worried about the oline. JW took too many hits in ps for my liking. Ps or not!

  228. Bucamania Says:

    Stopped a 3rd and 1. How about that!!

    Beckwith playing really well.

  229. Capt.Tim Says:

    Those constant Glennon underneath passes get WRs killed.
    If he stays the starter- they’ll probably go thru 20 Wrs this year

  230. DB55 Says:

    Capt.Tim Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 2:13 pm
    This is the best Lavonte David has looked in 3 years!
    Great sign of things to come!
    This guy got his ged from a bubble gum machine. Be careful what you read it might make you dumber!

  231. Doctor Stroud Says:

    I agree, unbelievable. The Bucs have often played down to the competition. Another problem has been letting teams score just before the half. And, by the way, please, Coach Fox, keep Glennon in the game!

  232. MadMax Says:

    Game isnt over Bucs!!!!!!!!!

    Own that 2nd half ish!!!!!!!!

  233. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Love it. Put your foot in their neck

  234. Capt.Tim Says:

    Smith missed one block
    Other than that, Jameis has had perfect pockets.
    The Oline plays like this all year, we will definately make the playoffs

  235. unbelievable Says:

    Don’t look now but the Bucs are going for the kill.


  236. USFBUC Says:

    Damn, just got done with some yard work came in to check the score and we are killing them!

  237. unbelievable Says:

    Jameis gotta put more zip on that

  238. Capt.Tim Says:

    Bet they throw to Godwin in the endzone! Perfect time for it

  239. Doctor Stroud Says:

    @USFBUC: I am superstitious. Please go back out and do some more yard work.

  240. Boise Buc Says:

    Can’t wait for them to knock the rust off!

  241. DB55 Says:

    Why didn’t coach challenge that play by beckwith? Not sure what makes hump special rather have bobo in there. Bobo makes plays. #homer

  242. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice job offense getting into scoring range with less than a minute in the half.

  243. NJBucsFan Says:

    Folk Yeah!

  244. MadMax Says:

    GJ Folk!!!!!!!!!

  245. Pickgrin Says:

    Nice kick Folk.

  246. cmurda Says:

    Folk more than redeems himself after a stupid illegal shift penalty. Great job Folk. Great job Bucs. Way to show up. Keep the pedal to the metal in the 2nd half.

  247. NFLNut Says:

    26-0 at half … wow

    Folk 2/3 on PAT’s and 3/3 with 42,45 (didn’t count) and 50 … I’m not missing Aguayo at all!

  248. MadMax Says:


  249. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    D Smith is complete garbage he whiffed on that 3 man rush just a turnstile out there

  250. EA Says:

    Uhhhh Mark Schlereth

  251. DB55 Says:

    Oh yea btw Brate is nasty still don’t understand the OJ pick but WTF DO I KNOW!!?!!!

  252. Mcruzer Says:

    USF Buc, go back outside and don’t come back in for the entire f’n season

  253. Walter Says:


  254. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey guys I’d like to say I was only kidding when I said I thought the Bears would be a tough match-up, I know Glennon reads this site so I was using reverse physiology to trick him into doing poorly.

  255. MadMax Says:

    Sslaute Walter!!!!!!!!!!!

  256. DB55 Says:

    Mcruzer Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 2:28 pm
    USF Buc, go back outside and don’t come back in for the entire f’n season

    This. Rotfl

  257. MadMax Says:

    *Salute, LOL!

  258. Pickgrin Says:

    Great 1st half to start the season Buccaneers. Don’t let up though. Keep the pressure on and lets get Fitz some snaps in the 4th Q.

    Time for Ryan Smith, Benenoch, Justin Evans, TJ Ward etc to get some meaningful snaps in the second half with mostly other first teamers.

  259. Rojas Says:

    D smith has to step it up.

  260. Walter Says:


  261. NFLNut Says:

    BTW … Quizz with 10-33 and a TD at half … Kareem Hunt with 5 carries for 8 yards at half against Philly and Dalvin Cook with 6 carries for 3 yards at half against Pitt … just saying …

  262. NFLNut Says:

    Give major playing time to Fitz, Ward, Justin Evans and Peyton Barber in the 2nd half!

  263. MadMax Says:

    Another reason we wont be draftin rb high in the next draft Nut!

  264. aj Says:

    I think we are going to see some Peyton Barber in the 2nd half. More of a bruiser. The Bears defense is already wilted from the heat.

  265. richbucsfan Says:

    The “D” dominating… has Swaggy been in at all? Haven’t seen or heard anything about him…

  266. richbucsfan Says:

    forget Den of Depression, how about Den of Doom

  267. aj Says:

    I am a bit surprised to see Tandy losing most of the snaps to TJ Ward instead of Conte.

  268. Pickgrin Says:

    Saw Swaggy make one nice play – a push up the middle on a pass play and a hit on Glennon just after he released the ball. So he has at least one “pressure” on the stat sheet.

  269. richbucsfan Says:

    agreed, aj…but man he is bringing it

  270. Defense Rules Says:

    Bears’ story of the first half: Turnover, turnover, turnover, turnover.

    Bucs’ story of the first half: D-E-F-E-N-S-E R-U-L-E-S.

  271. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The pressure up the middle with swaggy and GMC is unreal

  272. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Hey, at the stadium. Can confirm that Cannons officially not firing. Idk why

  273. DB55 Says:

    Irma sunk the ship

  274. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Please, a long drive for a TD! A TD to DJax would be great (but not necessary).

  275. unbelievable Says:

    Wonder if something happened to the cannons from the storm?

    Keep the pedal to the metal boys!

  276. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We need to hit that one to DJax

  277. DB55 Says:


  278. DB55 Says:

    I thought he could have dove for the first bomb too

  279. Rrsrq Says:

    DJax and JW will be lethal, they just need time, because he is open every time

  280. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Come on DJax, even ASJ would dive in the end zone!

  281. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    EVERY time^^^^^

  282. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Sims with a good blitz pickup

  283. unbelievable Says:

    Ball was pretty damn close considering Jameis was running forward and getting hit as he released

  284. unbelievable Says:

    Rodgers cutting to the outside has been very effective.

  285. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Dang twinkle toes

  286. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Come on Sims!

  287. cmurda Says:

    Charles Sims screwed up twice. He doesn’t follow his blocker and he fumbles. Please stop giving him the ball.

  288. THETRUTH Says:

    Gotta love the low numbers of penalties on Bucs , discipline!!!

  289. unbelievable Says:

    Dammit twinkle toes!

    Just run forward!

  290. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Charles Sims on the fumble. Kind of glad…because he might play himself out of a job.

  291. The Real Drew Says:

    Anybody else getting a garbled mess on Fox channel feed?

  292. Rrsrq Says:

    So much for the Sims of 2015

  293. mark2001 Says:

    Looks like when Martin comes back, Sims is gone…what a waste of space on the roster.

  294. richbucsfan Says:

    Maybe Sims can get on Dancing with the Stars

  295. JameisDungy Says:

    Licht totally ignoring/botching the RB spot this off season.

  296. Dreambig Says:

    Why is Fred Astaire on this team. I HATE, HATE, HATE Sims. He has done nothing but suck since his rookie year.

  297. unbelievable Says:

    He starts trying to juke a defender when the guy is still 5 yards away lol

  298. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Big will making plays today.

  299. NFLNut Says:

    Simms is one of the better receiving backs in the league but perhaps he should ONLY EVER be in the game on 3rd downs and ONLY EVER be passed to, never handed off to …

  300. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The Real Drew Says
    “Anybody else getting a garbled mess on Fox channel feed?”

    I’m in Bradenton on digital antenna 13.1 and I have had no issues at all.

  301. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Way to No Show Swaggy !

  302. mark2001 Says:

    JameisD… no he didn’t ….we drafted Snoop Jr.

  303. unbelievable Says:

    Gholston and McCoy having real nice games.

  304. richbucsfan Says:

    Swaggy did something? What were you referring to Blighe?

  305. aj Says:

    Look, I’m not saying Sims is the best ever. But, the guy got like 15 snaps all preseason. Even swaggy played more.

    So, if anyone has rust they have to work off, it is Sims.

  306. JameisDungy Says:

    Why did Jason Licht draft OJ Howard if we’re not going to use him in the red zone?

  307. Boise Buc Says:

    Lots of reasons to believe this team can make a run!

  308. Capt. Blighe Says:

    No Show Swaggy

  309. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Some of u fans are pathetic. We are kicking the $hit out of the bears and ur complaining about swaggy. Which is a direct indication of your lack of football knowledge. Swaggy isn’t here to be Gerald McCoy, he’s here to free up GMC. And that exactly what he’s doing.

  310. MadMax Says:


    FIRST ONE Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  311. JameisDungy Says:

    Bad miss Jameis

  312. JameisDungy Says:

    Bad miss Jameis

  313. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Barber looks good. Quizz softened up the defense tho. Lol

  314. Zwak Says:

    Running game is waking up!!

  315. MadMax Says:

    Youre crying too GOAT………..HAHAHAHA, just messing, throwing back at you….for accussing me of it when im mostly here cheering our guys on…. lol

  316. unbelievable Says:

    Some Nice running from Barber there!

    Kid looks gassed now lol. Good time for the quarter to expire.

  317. DB55 Says:

    Well you need at least 18 mins to come back from 25 pts down. I hope the big dog took the points.

  318. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I hear ya. I’m just geeked up that I get to watch our Bucs finally

  319. Rrsrq Says:

    That #25 looks good on Peyton

  320. DB55 Says:

    Marpet is disgusting. Repulsive even!

  321. DB55 Says:

    Vile, I say! He’s out there punking hicks

  322. JameisDungy Says:

    Dirk’s red zone play calling has been abysmal.

    Him and the offense have been bad the last 6 real NFL games or so.

    However, he’ll get a pass because he says things like “stick carrier”

  323. DB55 Says:

    So OJ was drafted as a tackle? Is that it?

  324. NFLNut Says:

    ^Dude they’ve got 29 and should have 33 (missed extra point and Sims fumble in red zone) at bare minimum after not playing for weeks … chill

  325. NFLNut Says:

    DB55 … yes! That is it … for now. The kid improves our running game dramatically and can flash in the passing game … I LOVE the OJ pick!!!

  326. DB55 Says:

    Take away the turnovers and I think the O has scored 9 points. Ijs

  327. DoNUTS Says:

    Peyton was running the ball fine up the gut. Why stop? Your up by 20+ why throw run the clock.

  328. NFLNut Says:

    I want a SHUT-OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  329. stpetebucsfan Says:

    So I wait until late in a scoreless game to see the moron brigade like JameisDungy.

    We are winning this game 29-0!!! We torched the Bears immediately after their turnover with a pass into the end zone…later we stuff it in with a run and yet we still have the freaking whiners here…

    Why we could shut out a team and still…uh…that’s right we ARE shutting out the Bears yet JD can only focus on a negative…and it’s not really a negative but his sorry OPINION. Some of you guys are the very defintion of trolls!!!

  330. DB55 Says:

    If you’re not using your 6’6 1st rnd TE inside the 10 then what’s the point?

  331. Capt.Tim Says:

    Arent you one of the idiots , that thinks McCoy isnt a great player?
    That makes you one of the stupidest SOBs on earth.

  332. NFLNut Says:

    ^ Tell em StPete!!!!

  333. stpetebucsfan Says:


    I can see the sweat on your brow…your desperation is clearly showing.

    We haven’t played in more than two weeks!!!! It’s our first game against a defense that did pretty well against the NFC Champs last week….and yet that’s all you can come up with.

    Get that weak sheeet out of here…if that’s the best you can do it’s pathetic.

  334. NFLNut Says:

    Carolina in a war with the Bills … Panthers don’t look good this year … Saints look like garbage and we are slaughtering the team that almost beat Atlanta … NICE!

  335. unbelievable Says:

    That’s a weak ass penalty on Conte.

  336. DB55 Says:


    What do you refer to dear sir?

  337. Capt.Tim Says:

    That penality sucked. The bear player ducked his head!!

  338. NFLNut Says:

    Mike Glennon is a statue but I bet he could put up good numbers behind the Cowboys and Raiders offensive lines … Dak and Carr are nowhere near as good as their stats suggest imho

  339. DB55 Says:

    We might just have a MLB controversy, lmao.

  340. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m talking about anybody searching for negatives in a rout!!!!

  341. NFLNut Says:

    Yeah! Shut-out still in tact …

  342. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I feel bad for Glennon. They have one good offensive player on that team.

  343. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Where is our pass rush????

  344. Rrsrq Says:

    Preserving the shut out, Beckwith, even though Bears receivers can’t catch

  345. unbelievable Says:

    Best linebackers in the league? I think so.

  346. Destinjohnny Says:

    Not to knit pick but we aren’t getting any pressure on glennon
    And we know they are passing

  347. Bucamania Says:

    Beckwith is playing lights out!!!

  348. DoNUTS Says:

    You run the football in that situation near the goal. You cant make every fan happy but that is the right call.

  349. NFLNut Says:

    The Arizona Cardinals might as well TANK this year and try to draft one of the big-time QBS (Sam “White Jameis” Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen, etc) … Carson Palmer is washed up and Larry Fitzgerald is retiring … who knows, maybe they’ll trade the farm for Andrew Luck though?

  350. BUCLUV55 Says:

    Beckwith is a demon to the ball. This dude was a steal. Best group of LB’s in the game. Rest up Kwon!!

  351. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Man I agree I like beckwith… better look out

  352. Bird Says:


    You all fight like stupid women on this site

    Kwon appears conservative. He was dancing on sideline

    Otherwise. Beckwith is filthy

  353. stpetebucsfan Says:

    There is ALWAYS room for improvement. But I’ll take a 29-0 score late in the 4th in ANY game!!!

    #3 and ME13 clearly have their timing down…as well as Brate and Hump…DJAX is getting there and OJ with a catch…Quizz looks solid as does Peyton…

  354. DBS Says:

    have you figured out yet that without the gifts of starting in their territory it is the same story? They can drive the length of the field BUT NOT SCORE!! 3 NOT 6!! This is against the BEARS!! What the hell are they going to do against Good teams?

  355. DB55 Says:

    Child please! Gtfoh w day chit. #FreeSpeechRally

  356. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    DB55 Says
    “Take away the turnovers and I think the O has scored 9 points.”

    And how many of those turnovers were defensive TDs? One.

    You may as well say “Take away the offensive TDs and the defense has only scored 6.

    Come on, man…get real for a change. Can’t harp about the usual so you come up with a new gripe.

    OJ will get his opportunities. Give him time to develop timing and chemistry.

  357. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Maybe average is good enough for you StPete, But I know we need to hit on all cylinders to be great. Beckwith is a beast Kwon may have to move outside.

  358. Boise Buc Says:

    Beckwith = New Defensive Stud!

  359. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow…65 yard punt. Anger has quite the leg.

  360. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lol! Man, Jameis just wont give up on a play!
    DB55- you suck

  361. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Can you count? What does that pass to ME13 in the end zone count? How about Quizz’s run into the end zone.

    This team hadn’t played a down of serious football in OVER THREE FREAKING WEEKS…the starters didn’t even dress in game 4 of the preseason…do you remember? DK said he would have played that strategy differently if he knew the hurricane would wipe out the first week.

    Despite all of those challenges the offense came out and looked pretty good…especially good enough with our defense.

    You guys forgot to mention that the Bears have sooo many injuries…how about the fact that the Bears had to wear dark jerseys in that hot Florida sun…

    Dang….could somebody please call the wambulance for some of these posters.

    it’s just one long….waaaaahhhhhh!

  362. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ira and Joe should eat crow when it comes to the ‘rust’ claims, lol.

  363. DB55 Says:

    unbelievable Says:
    September 17th, 2017 at 3:28 pm
    Best linebackers in the league? I think so.

    Great question. I think car still holds that title but Bucs might be #1 contenders. Atl not bad either. Jones is disgusting

  364. aj Says:

    Beckwith was an absolute steal.

  365. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Man shutout would be great to start the season especially at home!!! Go Bucs!!!

  366. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Uhh ohh

  367. Jughead Says:

    LVD cramping

  368. Zwak Says:

    Cramps no worries

  369. unbelievable Says:

    Defense is softening up. Might not keep this shutout going.

    Now LVD down….. ah chit

  370. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Was that David?????

    CRAP! Kwon and David! Kwon is minor I think, but David is a major hit it looks like. Maybe he just got his bell rung? (I hope)

  371. stpetebucsfan Says:

    BTW…for those who simply cannot see any positives…

    1.) We are whipping a team we should beat…how many times have we played poorly against teams we should beat…we generally play better against good teams.

    2.) #3 did not come out like he was jacked on amphetimines and toss interceptions and make bad decisions.

    3.) We won our first home opener in FREAKING FIVE YEARS!!!!

  372. Capt.Tim Says:

    Whew- that looks like a cramp.
    Dont need 2 starting LBs on the sideline!
    DB55- idiot!

  373. Billy buc Says:

    Did D Jackson get injured in the 2nd half?

  374. DBS Says:

    Both came after turnovers.

  375. stpetebucsfan Says:


    They way they were stretching out his leg I think he’s got a very painful calf cramp.

  376. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Btw, I think our player of the year last year was anger!!! Without him we lose 4 games. Period. Love that dude

  377. Bird Says:


    Get up you son of a bitch cause micky
    Love yah

  378. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This tv crew sucks. Why didn’t they tell us what happened to LVD?

  379. Bucamania Says:

    LVD looked like a cramp

  380. NFLNut Says:

    Come on Tyrod … pull off a game-winning drive for a TD to beat the Panthers!

  381. unbelievable Says:

    The Bears dropsies in the 4th quarter is unreal.

  382. Pickgrin Says:

    “Fan Favorite” Chris Conte with the nice 4th down PD.

  383. mark2001 Says:

    Of course I’m only hearing it on the radio… but it does sound like we do have some “rust” on Offense and Defense… wrong routes and such….. but we are doing so many good things today, that it hasn’t hurt us. The Bears, on the other hand, excluding a couple of people, sound like a pile of rust.

  384. unbelievable Says:

    Fan favorite!

  385. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    St Pete I feel you man!

  386. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    David just cramps. Woo.

  387. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Let’s have a long drive (and preferably a TD) to run out the clock!

  388. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol they tell us right after I post

  389. Broy34 Says:

    It’s gonna be entertaining to see what the negative losers have to say today

  390. aj Says:

    Damn. Conte could have taken that to the house. It was right to him.

  391. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    stpetebucsfan Says

    They way they were stretching out his leg I think he’s got a very painful calf cramp.”

    That was a darn good call, buddy!

  392. unbelievable Says:

    Good news for LVD!

  393. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I miss Griffin. Anyone else?

  394. Pickgrin Says:

    Damn – Anger has a hell of a leg. Great punts from deep this game.

  395. unbelievable Says:

    That’s the only problem with putting in FItz… everyone in the world knows are gonna run every down. Not worried about the game but it just gives the bears a little more time score and ruin the shut out.

  396. DB55 Says:

    The old men being lil sensitive biatch es today. Go drink an ensure SPBF and chill tf out. Nobody complaining

  397. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    stpetebucsfan Says
    “BTW…for those who simply cannot see any positives…”

    Those who don’t see positives today are not really Bucs fans. No matter what they claim.

  398. EvolvingBucfan Says:

    Yep, fits sucks, get better Griffin!!!!

  399. Howard Cosell Says:

    Den of Depression?… more like the Arena of Awesome!

  400. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m trying to remember the last time we simply played out the 4th Quarter of a game we had already won? Can anybody clue me in?

  401. Danny Mac Says:

    Why isn’t the game being broadcast on 620?

  402. Howard Cosell Says:

    620 mad bro

  403. MadMax Says:

    2:00 warning and LOVING this 29-0 Bucs lead!!!!

  404. MadMax Says:

    Look out NFL…..We have the O and the D!

  405. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Howard Cosell Says
    “Den of Depression?… more like the Arena of Awesome!”

    That title will go away this year. Didn’t Joe say he would lift it when the Bucs make the playoffs?

  406. mark2001 Says:

    Danny…it is broadcast on the Buccaneeers.com website…that is where I get it when I’m out of town. Have it on right now….and that is why I commented about Dave Moore’s comments about a few wrong routes being run or the QB and receiver not on the same page.

  407. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Don’t need an ensure DB55….just another beer…I’m jacked…we played well enough to win the game easily…we have plenty of room for improvement…and the main question I wanted answered…what’s out OL like was answered positively IMHO. #3 did not spend that afternoon taking hit after hit like his first two years.

    The OL played well!!! And how many holding penalties…offsides did we have?

  408. unbelievable Says:

    Here’s what I would complain about (if I had to pick something)…

    The lack of pass rush. I mean we know they are throwing on every down and we’re not getting much pressure. Now if the game was close we would prob be mixing in some blitzes and exotic looks, but it is concerning as we are going up against some better QBs with better receivers soon.

  409. RayJameisStadium Says:


    These are NOT your old Bucs!!!!!!

    You are welcome to EXPECT DIFFERENT!!!!!!!!

    Koetter will hold the Lombardi next to the Glazer Brothers at the Super Bowl next February!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  410. MadMax Says:

    Almost VHIII……Almost!

  411. Capt.Tim Says:

    Bears front 7 is really good, and our Oline crushed them!
    Great sign for the future

  412. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    There goes the shut out. Ohhh well

  413. MadMax Says:

    Dang….was hoping for a shutout….but still very happy with the D today!

  414. Capt.Tim Says:

    Ryan Smith has gotten some snaps, looked decent

    Damn it! Hargreaves sgain!

    A shutout would have been nice

  415. WeAreLost Says:


  416. mark2001 Says:

    There goes the shutout…. Oh well…might end up being better in the long run. Just points out that there is certainly room for improvement.

  417. DB55 Says:

    The oline did good much better than expected.

    The pass rush was great early but disappeared late in the game. Speaking of which GMCs first acting role should be on “The Prestige”. Lmao get it? The prestige

  418. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Time will tell whether or not the Den of Depression gets a name change. But the Mike Glennon Mob will surely disband once and for all, even with that last TD.

  419. RayJameisStadium Says:


    Bucs 29

    Bears 7

    Just in case while looking for our mistake you missed the Win by the BUCS!!!

  420. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    WeAreLost Says

    Hey, that’s bigotry toward people like DB55!!!!!
