Fire away all game long in the comments section below with fellow Bucs fans and the occasional troll.

Keep it clean and lose the personal attacks. Joe’s filters are tuned up for the regular season.

Most important, have fun and prepare for Joe’s award-winning postgame coverage. Joe is live in Minnesota.

Go Bucs!

    Go BUCS!

    Free pass on judgment for kneeling or locking arms for this one day. #AllRightsMatter

  2. Easy Denman Says:

    Cook is gonna look “shook” when Beckwith or Lavonte come crashing in on those run plays and stuff him. Go Bucs!!! And I don’t agree with protesting the flag personally but Trump needs to know his role and watch his mouth and worry about bigger problems.

  3. IndyBucsFan Says:

    Jaboo has got to show us today that HE can put the game on his shoulders, he has enough weapons… #noexcuses

  4. Easy Denman Says:

    Ryan Smith better be ready to get targeted all game long. Hope he ate his Wheaties this morning

  5. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Cook will rack up plenty of of yards as Bugs fans realize the only difference between the awful run D from last year and the great run d against the bears was the addition of Swaggy Baker.

    Baker and Grimes will be sorely missed in this game as Cook and Keenum expose our injuries.

    Jameis and the offense do just enough to pull of a W 30-27

  6. MadMax Says:

    Fk you kneelers…go ahead and take your knees….I’ll take my eyes elsewhere!!! Simple as that!

  7. Easy Denman Says:

    Lol @MadMax. Don’t be a cuck

  8. thespiritof76 Says:

    Stand for the anthem. You keep this up and I’ll take ALL of my Bucs gear and throw it out for sanitation to come get with the used cat litter.

  9. JAB83 Says:



    Signed -Jesus

  10. TeddyTB Says:

    I’m so nervous about our Defense today with these injuries. We really need this 2-0 start so Jameis, OJ, DJ, and Godwin need to come out and try to put the fear of God in the Vikings defense. Plus i’m upset the Jags out did our blow out of the bears with how they beat the ravens. Hopefully we can put up 50 on the vikings lol!

  11. thespiritof76 Says:

    @ TeddyTB.

    It’s be a team record if they popped up 50!

  12. Miguel Grande Says:

    I hope Miko is still active

  13. BigMacAttack Says:

    ^^ haha. Miko for the win!

  14. Easy Denman Says:

    Game time!!

  15. Buc1987 Says:

    Be accurate Jameis!

  16. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Those kneeling still have hands over their hearts. Cool.

  17. Buc believer Says:

    Just saw Evans kneeling during the anthem. I have just lost respect for that dude.

  18. ATrain Says:

    Thank you Bucs
    Expect our two WR
    For standing for the Flag it represents the GreatestCountry in the World
    Not a few who hate

  19. thespiritof76 Says:

    God Bless Jameis. Sets an example while Beavis and Butthead (11 and 13) sit and pout like babies.

  20. ATrain Says:

    I agree

  21. BigMacAttack Says:

    Two knees, hand over heart, all others arm in arm. Not too bad and expected much worse.

  22. thespiritof76 Says:

    Hey Bonzai, you’re the type that would let one of the idiots plow your wife and then you’d be happy about b/c it’d be some sort of dumb jock.

  23. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Buc believer
    It’s ok, we don’t want u on our bandwagon anyway. And u know how I know ur just here on the bandwagon? Cuz mike did the same thing last year. This isn’t the first time.
    Fluck u Trump

  24. Richbucsfan Says:

    What an embarrassment. You lost me Bucs.

  25. unbelievable Says:

    Exactly Bonzai. Evans and Djax both had hands on their hearts.

    They’re still paying respect while voicing their opinion.

    Let’s go Bucs! Kick some Viking a$$!

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    Jameis is real.

  27. Brandon Says:

    Evans and Jackson……..SMH!!!!!

  28. Easy Denman Says:

    Standing or kneeling they had their hand over their heart. If ppl had their back turned to the flag during the anthem then that’s a crock of crap, but they didnt

  29. BigMacAttack Says:

    Yeah they had to let him. Just win baby

  30. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    It would be great if we could all heed BUCBONZAI’s advise and not make this national anthem thing more poisoned by throwing the politics into our players PLEASE GUYS #GOBUCS

  31. JWBUCS Says:

    Thats it…. I will never spend another damn dime on a ticket to Raymond James or any NFL Gear whatsoever…. Mike Evans and D Jackson are sick bastards…

  32. Samsung Says:

    @. But believer your should have lost all respect for the idiot that we have as president

  33. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Cry babies.

  34. ATrain Says:

    I will say it a again I was wrong about Jamies

    JAMIES FAN!!!!!!

  35. thespiritof76 Says:

    Jackson and Evans: Beavis and Butthead.

    Check that. B & B weren’t dumb jock trash millenials. Oh, and they also had a proper job too.

    Hey, dumb 25 year old MILLIONAIRES: Go get a regular 9-5 job making 20 an hour and then complain about “the man”.

  36. Kevin Says:

    I knew that gangster from LA would lead Evans down the path….Take a hint Evans think long term …Mr.Brooks, Mr.Alstott, Mr.Barber, Mr.Lynch and Mr.Dave Moore. They are pillars of the community to this day. You my friend will be out like yesterdays newspaper after you are washed up on this team.

  37. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Missing big bake already

  38. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Buc believer Says
    “Just saw Evans kneeling during the anthem. I have just lost respect for that dude.”

    Cearly you missed his hand over his heart.

  39. Miguel Grande Says:

    Keenum curse

  40. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Hargreaves burned again

  41. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Cook is a beast. Glad we didn’t get him…

  42. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Let’s go Defense. Hold em

  43. bucnut2 Says:

    vikings go right down the field

  44. cmurda Says:

    Hargreaves isn’t there yet. The roue was a straight fly and Hargreaves hesitated for a full 2 seconds before running with him. VH3 has the skills but he doesn’t yet have the instinct.

  45. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Just curious. How many of you at home stood for the anthem?


  46. unbelievable Says:


  47. cmurda Says:

    Are you serious Bonzai? Come on man.

  48. simon Says:

    Joe warned us about Keenum as Bucs killer

  49. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    cant have high draft pick getting beat every week

  50. JameisDungy Says:

    Ok Dirk, time for your offense to score some points.

  51. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:


  52. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That ball is out!!!!!!!

  53. cmurda Says:

    Even though that ball looks like a fumble, I will bet anyone money that it will stand.

  54. ARGH_M8E Says:


  55. mike10 Says:

    We can all agree that VH3 has a long way to go right?

    Please put him at nickel and trade for a corner.

  56. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    what a rip. Oh well. Moving on.

  57. lurker Says:

    respect their right to protest!

    lots of babies here

  58. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That was a flucking fumble. Let’s go offense

  59. ATrain Says:

    That’s B S

    That was clearly not. A TD

  60. Miguel Grande Says:



    BAD FKN CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. thespiritof76 Says:

    Go to Bonzai you POS. If you were next to me i’d knock you on your ass.

  63. Easy Denman Says:

    I seriously hate Case Keenum

  64. unbelievable Says:

    I’m sorry that was not a touchdown wtf???

  65. lurker Says:

    c’mon fumble

  66. Broy34 Says:

    That’s a damn fumble and it’s not even close

  67. mark2001 Says:

    Home cooking, baby. Why don’t the refs. call it like that when they get paid to do a job here?

  68. BucEmUp Says:

    Smiths defense sucks. I hope we get a real DC before the end of the season or we can kiss the playoffs GOODBYE!!!!! Backup qb is about to be 3-0 against us!!!

  69. Buc1987 Says:


  70. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “Are you serious Bonzai? Come on man.”

    Yes I am. Since when does it matter where you are at? Truth hurts?

    Just making a point.

    They took knees yes…but they STILL had their hands over their hearts. THat still shows respect while still protesting.

  71. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    As soon as we don’t look like a all pro defense the trolls come out. Go back in your holes trolls

  72. unbelievable Says:


    Hope it doesn’t turn into one of those days..,

    Let’s go O!

  73. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey wow the refs blow yet another call that cost the Bucs points.


  74. Easy Denman Says:

    Gotta get a TD on this drive

  75. lurker Says:

    he didnt have the ball at the goalline

  76. mike10 Says:

    Seriously Bonzai? Why do u have to force that down our throats?

    Take that somewhere else man.

  77. Mcruzer Says:

    All you Chris Baker haters take note

  78. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    Our D is looking like hot garbage with all these starters out! Hope the pull their heads out of their arse!

  79. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Lousy call

  80. unbelievable Says:

    Bonzai you hit the nail on the head.

    Hand on hearts is still showing respect.

  81. cmurda Says:

    Simmer down Bucemup. The Vikes outsmarted M Smith on the first drive. Adjustments will be made. There is 4 quarters left not to mention the screw job on the fumble.

  82. bucnut2 Says:

    I don’t understand 5 db’s against this team.

  83. Iamabuc Says:

    Someone said yesterday that Hardgraves VH111, was going to be exposed in this game, and look at that. His sorry ass cost us that touchdown. Wtf!

  84. ATrain Says:

    What are they Protesting about
    What Has the country not done Lurker
    They have the right to protest BECAUSE IF THE FLAG

  85. Bucamania Says:

    Cook did not have the ball when he crossed the goal line. Cmon man.

  86. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Why bother having replay? NFL Is fixed and I’m not wasting any more time on this bogus sport!

  87. thespiritof76 Says:

    Last year, San Francisco. Down 14-0 and we won convincingly. It’s still early.

  88. lurker Says:

    run on first down…

  89. Easy Denman Says:

    Godwin finally made a catch. Looked lost last week on the field

  90. Bucs Guy Says:

    People who disrespect the flag/anthem disrespect those who protect our country. If you don’t like something, protest it on your time, not at work and not during the anthem. Thought Evans learned that last year. I guess not.

  91. TampaTown Says:

    That was an effing fumble!

  92. unbelievable Says:

    Jameis looking sharp!

  93. TampaTown Says:

    Bonsai you don’t like it here, there’s the door.

  94. lurker Says:

    bullspit. it does not disrespect the military.

    and people in the military made a choice, get paid well, as well as tons of benefits

  95. bucnut2 Says:

    Good. we needed to answer

  96. Easy Denman Says:

    Thank you Folk, Aguayo would’ve been wide left

  97. cmurda Says:

    On a no gain, Brate just made one of the best plays I’ve seen. JW has got to be smarter. That’s a pick every day of the week dude. This is the maturity that isn’t there yet. Vh3 and JW will be great but neither are quite there yet.

  98. JameisDungy Says:

    So does Dirk’s play calling seem to get worse near the red zone or is it just me?

  99. thespiritof76 Says:

    Lurker, if I ever find you out on the streets…

  100. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    not one throw to djax, faking almost criminal.

  101. cmurda Says:

    Don’t underestimate the importance of that drive. I too did not like the playcalls as we neared their red zone. There was no reason to go away from throwing the ball over the middle. OJ is the x-factor. That’s who we should have been looking for. The Vikes can’t hang with him.

  102. unbelievable Says:

    Don’t think that was playcaling…

    Vikes D just had too much pressure. Great effort by Brate.

    Hope the D looks sharper this drive.

  103. lurker Says:

    way to go tough guy…

    military teach you that?

  104. cmurda Says:

    Lurker you are an absolute moron if you think the military gets paid well. I served. Did you?

  105. lurker Says:

    in america we can have opinions…smh

  106. thespiritof76 Says:

    7-3. Still early. First quarter is emotional as hell. Just settle down and they’ll return to the mean.

    Oh, and Lurker, go to hell troll.

  107. Rod Munch Says:

    If Ryan Smith is in on defense Keenum is going to through for 800 yards today.

  108. TampaTown Says:

    Hey Lurker: You don’t want to stand behind the military? Then try standing in front of them. A$$wipe.

  109. Aristotle Says:

    This is a Bucs thread, stop spilling your political views here. Get out if you want. Also that was a fumble. Refs are garbage already cause it was clear

  110. thespiritof76 Says:

    Lurker is a know nothing troll who is the type that has nothing to do on a Sunday so he picks a random message board to tick people off and get a rise out of them.

    My fault for taking its bait.

    No more. Just give “people” like that the Cartman treatment and they’ll go away or be content to talk to themselves all day.

  111. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ol krafty jason licht trade up to get a kicker but not a stud RB?

  112. unbelievable Says:

    Not gonna lie Cook does look electric.

  113. Bucamania Says:

    VH3 sucks

  114. thespiritof76 Says:

    That said, a LOT of people are getting tuned off of the NFL due to the officiating. IMO, some of these officials are on the take.

  115. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    CASE KEENUM OWNS THE BUCS and hargreaves

  116. cmurda Says:

    VH3 and has no clue. You cannot give 10 yards to any receiver in the NFL. How about some pressure D Line.

  117. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Heargraves again way too far off WTF guard the first down marker

  118. jughead Says:

    yea, don’t blitz the Keenum, great idea….smh

  119. BucEmUp Says:


  120. unbelievable Says:

    VH3…. sigh

  121. DB55 Says:

    We might have a mlb controversy

  122. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    how yall liking that d-line rush? But pressure doesn’t matter right? bahahahahahahahah

  123. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    seems like vikings OC knows what we here on joe bucs that our secondary is garbage

  124. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Minnesota has NO RESPECT for bucs secondary

  125. VA BUC Says:

    Vh3 sucks always will i said in the draft he will hurt us

  126. unbelievable Says:

    Smith is just not good. That was lucky.

    But I’ll take the stop either way.

  127. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    DB55 right on beckwith is a true MLB

  128. mark2001 Says:

    Some of you guys are rather silly. Mike wasn’t protesting the flag….he was protesting this verse in the Anthem

    “No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave”

    And considering the images of violence and hatred we have seen, stoked in this last political season, I don’t blame them at all.

    I served…and I stand with their right to protest.

  129. cmurda Says:

    Harp on the secondary all you want but no pressure at all from this D Line. Same old song and dance. Grimes is out by the way. The Bucs haven’t had a D Line in what 10 years.

  130. mike10 Says:

    Wasn’t VH3 the one that gave the sole TD last week?

  131. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    VH3…gotta wake up brah.

  132. VA BUC Says:

    Hargraves is a liability he plays soooooo far off and he’s slow

  133. Rod Munch Says:

    Ugh… Ryan Smith was completely burned on that pass and Keenum missed Diggs who was wide open.

    This is going to be a rough day if we see more of Smith. VH3 has tape and has been fine as a #2 corner, the issue is he’s a #1 corner today and he’s not there yet. But Ryan Smith… he’s terrible.

  134. Easy Denman Says:

    Well looks like Kenuum will be throwing YOLOs on 3rd and long all game

  135. Rod Munch Says:

    Stop with the politics you dullards, there isn’t any of you that have an original thought or an original thing to say. We’re talking football here, if that doesn’t work for you go down the local glory hole and strike up a conversation with the guy behind the hole.

  136. Easy Denman Says:

    OJ Howard had a solid block on Griffin

  137. Jim Says:

    My father is in Arlington. He dropped with the 82nd on Normandy. He would never stand for the anthem because he didn’t believe in jingoistic rituals.

  138. jughead Says:

    nice hold by the DB on humphries

  139. cmurda Says:

    Getting that ref love. No PI on Humphreys. No fumble by the Vikes. Get used to it all day. JW has to be better and Evans has to atch that ball. Bucs look like crap.

  140. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    10 yard out to DJAX!? overthrow to ME13 and leading Hump. This JW isn’t there quite yet.

  141. VA BUC Says:

    Jameis does this everytime we play a team like this he just dissapears knowing we need him this game i can smell a pick 6

  142. Easy Denman Says:

    Way to go rookie!!

  143. unbelievable Says:

    This officiating is pretty 1 sided today.

  144. DallasBuc Says:

    Keenum is a Bucs killer. Like Derek Anderson and Nick Foles.

  145. BuccoDav Says:

    Evans is what,

  146. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Check again. Offense DID score.

  147. Rod Munch Says:

    Humphries was completely held on that… then the next play the Bucs get a flag. It’s going to be one of those days – the refs have given them a TD and didn’t throw a flag on a completely obvious PI. Garbage as always.

  148. bucnut2 Says:

    I am not sure our o-line cn hold up long enough to take shots

  149. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @mike10 Yep.

  150. Bucamania Says:

    Time for McCoy or LVD to step up

  151. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    My fellow JBFers didn’t we sign a deep threat named Desean Jackson?? I thought signing him was exploiting the deep threat not as a decoy?

  152. Rod Munch Says:

    Spence is now out?!? G-Dit.

  153. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @bucnut2 u right, that Mini d line is no joke. This is just a bad match up for the young bucs all around.

  154. BuccoDav Says:

    Evans is about 6’5 and that ball was too high for him. JW has to get better at that!

  155. jughead Says:

    the only chance we got is if their WRs drop balls, like the last one

  156. Buc believer Says:

    Nice penalty Gerald!

  157. VA BUC Says:

    Gerald Mccoy gets one every game how dumb can you be and this secondary is horrible if diggs catches the pass its over

  158. unbelievable Says:

    Damn N Spence out???

    Refs not calling anything for the Bucs.


  159. Ndog Says:

    So the guy we picked instead of Cook is not only a 3rd teamer but he also doesnt know the rules. Hargreaves is what I thought he was average and McCoys first impact is to jump offsides.

  160. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Winston, Evans and Rodgers all had TDs last week. It wasn’t just VHIII.

  161. cmurda Says:

    PI offense. No call.

  162. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    Take Ryan smith out

  163. jughead Says:

    and a nice push off

  164. Easy Denman Says:

    Blatant push-up no call

  165. lurker Says:

    they are passing all over us….

  166. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Why in the world are half of you talking like we’re going to lose this game? Sheesh. Way to support the team, people!

    I’m out for a bit. Prefer to avoid Negative Nancies.

  167. Rod Munch Says:

    The Vikings just realized Ryan Smith is on the team, they’re now throwing everything his direction. I can’t believe the Bucs don’t have anyone better to put out there. Sure he might make a play or two, but he’ll also give up 7 bombs and 67 first downs in this game.

  168. Sydney Says:

    NO CHANCE for this Bucs team today. =(

  169. VA BUC Says:

    We are about to get humbeled real quick watch what i tell you cook is about to have a career day keenum will be 3-0 n jameis 3 picks sorry but i see it

  170. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Wtf no chance are for real?

  171. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Kwon and Brent being out is changing everything about the depth chart on defense.

  172. mark2001 Says:

    Let’s face it…gambling rules the NFL. If we only had a “patriot” on our helmet…..

  173. lurker Says:

    we have a chance…way too early yet

    need to buc up!

  174. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    they can’t get pressure so Keenum is good enough to take what they give. Their only way out is for JW to have himself a day but right now he’s way off on his throws.

  175. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Well our depth on defense didn’t look too good.

  176. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Dirk, you’re going to have to let Winston play today because the Vikings are putting up points on this defense with no Grimes, Kwon or Spence.

  177. ATrain Says:

    Where is our secondary

  178. cmurda Says:

    This does not look good. This defense is going to be gassed by halftime. What happened to our elite offense? I know we are missing a boatload of guys but any QB could tear us up with no pressure and backups in our secondary.

  179. cmurda Says:

    It’s time for the big turnover.

  180. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Down goes Ayers

  181. Rod Munch Says:

    Keenum missed Rudolph who was wide open… who was in coverage? Ryan Smith…

  182. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    a real NFL qb might set nfl records against this DL and secondary

  183. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ayers holding his knee.

  184. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    OMG, Ayers out too.

  185. BuccoDav Says:

    That’s BS! They are getting pressure but Keenum is getting rid of the ball pretty quickly. Need to stiffen up the pass defense.

  186. jughead Says:

    Conte….hot garbage

  187. THETRUTH Says:

    How about our CB not be 15 yards off WR , they are running wide open in our secondary

  188. cmurda Says:

    You bring a blitz from the safety position???? Are you serious Mike Smith. Mike Smith has no clue dude. He’s getting severely outcoached. Dumbest defense on 3rd and long. The blitz comes from Lavonte idiot.

  189. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Mike Smith has the worst blitz calls in the game easy. So ineffective.

  190. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    What Fing Conte

  191. Rod Munch Says:

    The Ryan Smith – Conte stack has to be the worst DB combo in football… unbelievable.

  192. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @cmurda YEP!

  193. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    last offseason needs: edge rushers, RB, secondary Licht: we r good

  194. CanuckBuc Says:

    Sorry guys we are essentially playing our number two defence. Our elite defence went out the window early.

  195. ATrain Says:

    Shows us how bad The Bears are

    Defense is getting beat bad

  196. cmurda Says:

    Refs suck a fat one.

  197. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Refs are on the pay roll. Is is flucked

  198. Jim Says:

    So we have 7 defensive players out?

  199. cmurda Says:

    14 point given to Vikes on no fumble call and BS penalty right there.

  200. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey wow, the Vikings don’t get a TD so the refs are going to give them one…

  201. VA BUC Says:

    Defense blowing the game smh 1-1

  202. Brandon Says:

    Where is the defense at today!!!!!
    No discipline at all

  203. ATrain Says:


    This is Bull

    Refs are horrible

    How about a face mask just shown on TV

  204. Dave Says:

    How does 5 starting defenders get hurt after 1.25 games?

    This team is not going to survive 16 straight games.

  205. mark2001 Says:

    It’s in the bag… some official has a friend or relative that is going to make a lot of money today.

  206. Buc believer Says:

    Freeking garbage!!

  207. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    tell ryan smith the dudes in purple are the enemy

  208. jugheadfla Says:

    horse chit


    The fix is in! bad fkn calls

  210. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey look, Ryan Smith gave up that TD…

  211. cmurda Says:

    Ryan Smith has to be taken out. It’s a must. Put in the waterboy. Anybody. He’s getting abused violently.

  212. lurker Says:

    agree with rod munch now…lol

    smith and conte a weak link

  213. Bucs Says:

    Well the rout is on. “It’s early it’s early”

    Yea chaulk this one up in the loss colum.

    Gonna go mow the yard. This one is over by halftime.

  214. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Defense looks like @ss, corners and safeties suck. No edge rush.

  215. lurker Says:


  216. Zwak Says:

    We better make some MAJOR halftime adjustments!

  217. ATrain Says:

    NFL better get this Refs situation under control
    Viewing is down losing Fans

  218. bucnut2 Says:

    not the refs guys

  219. BuccoDav Says:

    C’mon offense..lf JW can’t hang with Case Keenum with the talent HE has, we might need to rethink this…

  220. mike10 Says:

    Bonzai, VH3 plays for our defense

  221. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Ahhhhh…the start of 2016 ALL over again.

  222. ATrain Says:

    Hey Joe how about an article on these calls show the replays

    Face mask in front of the Refs eyes

  223. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @BuccoDav YEP!!!

  224. Bucs Says:

    This is why I NEVER get my hopes up or buy into the hype. They have one good game and all I hear is playoffs number 10 in the power rankings. Then they come out looking like total sh*t. Can’t beat a back up QB. SAME OL SAME OL.

  225. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    What a joke. Idk wtf kind of gameplan we had going into this game, but our corners lining up behind the 1st down marker on 3rd down is pissing me off

  226. DoNUTS Says:

    Wow…D getting rolled by backup Keenum. Aweful. Back to reality.

  227. mark2001 Says:

    ATrain….why wouldn’t it. Refs can create the outcome in the game they desire…. NFL…you want to make the game better? Fix the officiating…not ignore fixed officiating.

  228. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    Bucs are gonna score here and keep this a boxing match. Relax. It’s very early.

  229. ATrain Says:

    By nut did you see the first TD clearly a fumble

  230. GhosofSchiano Says:

    Where is the pressure? Hello dc smith, hello

  231. Mike Johnson Says:

    Viking QB backup KEENUM…Buc K-I-L-L-E-R
    SOB’s….Same Ole Bucs!!

  232. Bucamania Says:

    Mistakes all over the field. Wake the F up.

  233. Bird Says:

    Who was the guy posting that the 3rd db wasn’t important That you couldn’t name the 3rd db on most teams

    Well I know who the 3rd db is for the bucs. His name is Ryan smith and he is hot garbage

  234. Andrew Says:

    Defense playing embarrassingly bad. Seriously every one of keenums throws have been to wide open reeivers. This game is already over.

  235. cmurda Says:

    This is just one of those games where absolutely nobody on this team is worth a crap. Reedy should have let that go and does nothing with it. My goodness. I like how most fans were saying this would be an easy win.

  236. VA BUC Says:

    The whole team is back to that losing mentality i see it they are not in the game maybe the distance

  237. Easy Denman Says:

    I hate Case Keenum and our 3rd down defense steadily getting exposed again like it did last week

  238. ARGH_M8E Says:

    I thought we were passed this 3 & out BS

  239. Zwak Says:

    Why is it that every time we play a backup quarterback we get are asses kicked?

  240. unbelievable Says:

    Remember when certain people said cornerback was the deepest position on this team?

    Ryan Smith is garbage. VH3 is average at best.

    Oh and the refs are about as 1 sided as possible today. Unreal.

  241. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    6-10 !!! Stop the hype ! And di@k sucking and prove it on the field!

  242. Buc1987 Says:

    I don’t like the playcalling at all today. I know Minny has a good D, but really.

  243. jugheadfla Says:

    welp, see you next week guys, this is embarrassing

  244. Gobucs Says:

    Yea guys blame it all on the refs.

    Bunch of liberal millennials always someone else’s fault lol

  245. ARGH_M8E Says:

    It’s gonna take a miracle to win this game, pathetic.

  246. lurker Says:

    we need a td on this possession

  247. cmurda Says:

    I give up. Dirk and Mike Smith are getting abused. Absolutely owned. What was that stupidity Dirk. Have the damn RB go out to the flat and get the first. This is the ugliest game I’ve seen in quite a long time. This vaunted offense is humiliating and the O Line is playing well. This is on Dirk calling run, run pass and being so predictable. This is like the preseason. Absolutely embarrassing.

  248. mark2001 Says:

    So grab Keenum by the back of his helmet and throw him down… obviously that is allowed in this game…if you are in Purple that is.

  249. unbelievable Says:


  250. VA BUC Says:

    Desean made a big mistake coming here

  251. AlteredEgo Says:

    Having a QB that can hit his throws helps…

  252. King C Says:

    Being too negative guys

  253. Easy Denman Says:

    Not a fan of that call on 3rd and short down by 10 and backed up on your side of the field. We better make a stop here or this game is over

  254. JameisDungy Says:

    Doesn’t matter. Licht and Koetter will continue to get a pass. Truth is Mike Smith’s defense bailed them out last year. Now we need the offense to bail out the defense.

  255. lurker Says:

    nothing to say…

  256. g720 Says:

    Yes, how about no one on the Bucs secondary can cover anyone. This is an atrocious secondary. 10 yds off of every receiver.

  257. Bird Says:


    Agree. Check out post a few before yours.

  258. Jim Says:

    Most of the Bucs defense is out of the game. Grrrrr

  259. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Dirk, I’m no NFL coach but I have played Madden for 30 years now – and just an idea, on 3rd down don’t do a playaction pass since the other team is just playing the pass and they won’t take the bait. If you want to do a playaction pass, then do it on 1st down when you just run it up the middle nearly every single time.

    Also if you are going to run a 3rd down playaction pass, then how about you pretend to run it up the middle and not run a fake sweep which you never actually run.

    Glad I help coach.

  260. Buc1987 Says:

    AlteredEgo…Jameis is 6 for 8.

  261. Rob Says:

    Bucs are being dominated in every aspect of this game. Let’s see what adjustments Koetter and Smith ale. Otherwise we get routed by a superior playoff bound team. We look horrible

  262. Matts17 Says:

    The whole team just looks lost. Not playing a poor Bears team at home. Gotta go on the road and play a quality team and this what you get?

  263. lurker Says:

    it is not the refs…

    our team is hot garbage on both sides right now. defense needs a stop or turnover and offense needs a td drive to end the half.

  264. unbelievable Says:

    @Bird I just saw, lol.

    Frustrating is an understatement, the secondary looks pathetic. Doesn’t help that we have 3 DL out now either.

  265. cmurda Says:

    This is on our D Line. He sits back there for 4 and 5 secs without a scent of pewter

  266. g720 Says:

    Smith , you better blitz and hope for a turnover because Keenan is going to set records with that defense playing like it is.

  267. Aristotle Says:

    Hargreaves is getting killed for the most part

  268. Mord Says:

    I really can’t believe some of you are whining about the anthem. I agree with Bonzai, and if you can’t tolerate that very thoughtful and respectful show of protest, then you epitomize what it means to be a ‘snowflake’. Go ahead and boycott the team.

    And meanwhile .. this game is getting to a point where the rest of it will say a lot about the character of this team. Do they phone it in and try to get home to lick their wounds? Or do they stand up and act like they’re a team that should be able to overcome a two-score deficit? The Vikings clearly want this one.

  269. DB55 Says:

    Wow so a probowl safety can’t make it onto the field and when he does he holds in the ez? Conte > Ward ? 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢

    Well the Messiah throw for touchdowns or four interceptions inquiring minds want to know?

  270. Bucamania Says:

    Thielen. They can’t cover Thielen. Really?

  271. Sam Says:

    We can’t cover anyone. They are open by 5-10 yards on each throw.

  272. Redtop5588 Says:

    This is crazy Ryan smith needs to get benched seriously there all on him

  273. unbelievable Says:


  274. DallasBuc Says:

    What is the point of putting all my comments in moderation?

  275. Redtop5588 Says:

    TAke that back no one can cover

  276. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m not 100% sure but I think on a couple of these passes going in VH3’s direction, it looks to me like Beckwith isn’t getting depth on his drop. Beckwith is nowhere as fast as Kwon and I wonder if that is causing issues. Could be wrong however, hard to tell from the TV angle.

  277. cmurda Says:

    Nice tackle Conte. I have no idea why that dude is still on the team.

  278. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Licht great move on passing on cook

  279. ATrain Says:

    R U Kidding me

    No one should miss a tackle like that

  280. g720 Says:

    Hargreaves can’t cover anyone and also doesn’t know how to tackle. Going to show after this season that he is a first round bust.

  281. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    CRAP!!!! VHIII down!

    We’re going to need new defensive players at this rate.

  282. unbelievable Says:

    That was pathetic. Bailed out by a penalty.

  283. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    I couldn’t care less about losing Hargreaves

  284. Rod Munch Says:

    Are you s-ing me… now VH3 is out?

    Good news Spence is back…

    Bad news Ayers is now out….

  285. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    you can watch this game and know exactly how the rest of this season will go. They got weapons for winston but don’t use them. They avoid the dline and this the result, no pressure and getting sliced up. This is the same team as last year. GM and HC seats should be heating up.

  286. Redtop5588 Says:

    Oh my great

  287. DB55 Says:

    We still have a real ball on the field no worries kids

  288. Evolvingbucfan Says:

    Defense not showing up today? I get we have some players out, but wtf is our offenses excuse!!!!

  289. unbelievable Says:

    Finally someone makes a play! LVD!

  290. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    There you go. Defense stopped them.

  291. Bucamania Says:

    GMC, LVD, and TJ still playing out there.

  292. DB55 Says:

    Like I said 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢

  293. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    excellent open field play by ward why is he not out there full time

  294. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    That was TJ Ward.

  295. unbelievable Says:

    There we go Ward!

  296. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Here comes your Winston pick 🙂

  297. BuccoDav Says:

    LVD then TJ… now we’re playing defense!

  298. TampaTown Says:

    Classic Koetter. Gets behind turns into a turtle and sticks his head up his a$$

  299. Redtop5588 Says:

    Here we go crunk up get a play

  300. Rod Munch Says:

    OK Dirk the defense amazingly got a stop… now do your job as OC and make something happen.

  301. THETRUTH Says:

    Defense got us points last week now it’s on offense and we can’t score TD JUST FG

  302. Easy Denman Says:

    Finally a 3rd down stop!

  303. Say What? Says:

    Score here. Get the ball after half. We’re right back in this thing.

  304. g720 Says:

    We have the best offensive team in history, so if all we can score so far is 3 points, then Koetter or Winston need to look at themselves because this is inexcusable.

  305. unbelievable Says:

    @Bonzai I was taking about the play before.

    I’m on directv digital ticket, so I think there’s like a 30 second delay.

  306. Buc1987 Says:

    What defense?

    We basically have a bunch of 2nd stringers playing right now…

  307. Redtop5588 Says:

    Come on score An ball back after half lets f ing go

  308. lurker Says:

    got the stop.

    now for the td

  309. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Mike remmers is a b!tch for kicking TJs mouth guard on that last play

  310. BucEmUp Says:

    Soft coverage….been saying for YEARS!!!!!! Jam the wr at the line and gain an extra half second to a second to get to the QB. We have a pass rush but he gets the ball out right before the sack every….single…..time. This is common firkin sense!!!!!

  311. BuccoDav Says:


  312. Rod Munch Says:



  313. unbelievable Says:

    Grimes, VH3, Kwon, spawn, ayers, and baker are all out on defense right now. That’s some tough sledding boys…

  314. unbelievable Says:

    Nice pass!

  315. g720 Says:

    We have 2 good TE’s and we never throw to them. WTF Koetter?????

  316. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    vikings got a legit secondary why isnt the bubble screen to djax?

  317. unbelievable Says:

    Nice play Hunp!

  318. Mord Says:

    This drive is a welcome change

  319. g720 Says:

    F the run and keep throwing the ball since you can’t run it.

  320. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    come one Jameis please bro, get that TD!

  321. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    All of the vikings catch the ball with at least 5 yards of space. nobody covers anyone. How is it possible to be wide open everytime?

  322. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Told ya, FUUUUUK!

  323. Mord Says:

    I spoke too f**king soon

  324. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m done. That’s ball game.

  325. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    And there it is The underthrown ball

  326. Buc believer Says:


  327. BuccoDav Says:

    incredibly underthrown…

  328. g720 Says:

    Jameis, waited too long to hit him. Waited until he was covered.

  329. cmurda Says:

    JW. The one time he doesnt throw it deep. This is disgusting. JW can’t get any consistency. This is getting horrendous. JW has a long way to go.

  330. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    d jax wide open got to make that throw put it on the goal post

  331. unbelievable Says:


  332. ATrain Says:

    All Winston on that one

  333. unbelievable Says:

    Underthrown badly. Cmon Jameis!

  334. Steven007 Says:

    Worst pass of the year by JW. Easy touchdown

  335. cmurda Says:

    My goodness. JW doesn’t have the timing. Way underthrown, way too late. It’s painful to see a guy with his talent but still not there with the IQ.

  336. Matts17 Says:

    WTF Winston? Late and lazy throw leads to easy pick. Wow. Just awful.

  337. lurker Says:

    the wheels are off the cart

    one side isnt picking up the other.

  338. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This is disgusting

  339. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Did McCoy make the team plane to Minnesota? This looks like a Lovie Smith defense.

  340. BuccoDav Says:

    Case frickin Keenum is out playing our franchise quaterback…

  341. Bucamania Says:

    This is just ridiculous

  342. VA BUC Says:

    Like i said jameis is a bum 1st int of the day 2 more on the way we will be drafting a qb in 3yrs

  343. bucnut2 Says:

    Can we trade for Keenum?

  344. Zwak Says:

    I know JW is young but will he ever learn that was 1st year type of mistake..

  345. cmurda Says:

    Keep Ryan Smith in there. That a boy. Notice how Keenum doesn’t miss the open guys downfield. You blow R Smith.

  346. jugheadfla Says:

    Keenum > Winston

  347. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, Ryan Smith burned yet again…

  348. unbelievable Says:


  349. g720 Says:

    Offense, you better get it together the second half and score 40, because your defense can’t stop anyone.

  350. ATrain Says:

    Need a safety
    Need a CB
    Need an edge rusher

  351. Bucs Says:

    Lol at this point just sit back and laugh lol

  352. Fool me once... Says:

    This does not look like a playoff team. I don’t care about injuries. Playoff teams don’t lose to backup quarterbacks.

  353. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – Actually Keenum has missed 3 guys wide open down the field so far.

  354. unbelievable Says:

    Ryan Smith is garbage. Holy Sh!t

  355. King C Says:

    Case Keenum is a a Hall of Famer against the Bucs.. Joe called it

  356. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Jameis is Way behind in yr 3 development

  357. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    sorryitriggeredyou Says:
    September 24th, 2017 at 2:03 pm
    Here comes your Winston pick 🙂

    ^^^^hehehehe called it.

  358. AlteredEgo Says:

    I don’t need a F’n cheerleader….I need a QB…that can hit his opportunities….

  359. Sydney Says:

    Mike Smith is Case Keenum’s b**ch! No answers.

  360. Buc1987 Says:

    Wow we have no one left out there in the secondary. No pass rush. This game sucks. Jameis is inaccurate with the deep ball….again. Wants to be one of the greatest of all time….but I’m starting to not see it. Do they even practice during the week?

  361. Greg Says:

    Somebody please explain again why Howard was so much better of a pick over Dalvin Cook? Bucs look like s&!t today!

  362. lurker Says:

    nothing to do but laugh at this

  363. Rob Says:

    America’s turnover machine getting schooled by the back up future HOF qb (at least against the Bucs).

  364. Brandon Says:

    This team didn’t show up today!!!

  365. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe we are overrated. Love the entire “family” concept, but the family looks pretty dysfunctional right now, and not a playoff team.

  366. g720 Says:

    McCoy is the only defensive lineman who came to play today. Come on Smith, start blitzing every play or you will give up 40 pts today.

  367. BucEmUp Says:

    Mike Smiths defense = Lovie Smiths defense

  368. JAB83 Says:

    Thats what you get Buc fans… F your circumstances AND THE NFL!!!!

  369. Jim Says:

    We need our Defense healthy. Grimes would not allow this. Kwon would be stuffing the runs, and both of our DE and a starting DT are not playing.

  370. ARGH_M8E Says:


  371. BucEmUp Says:

    When did Mike Smith ever run a dominant defense???? Never…..

  372. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:


    Did you really think the Bucs would go 16-0?

    We have the better offense and we’ll adjust don’t be so quick to jump ship!

  373. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith getting owned by Keenum again. At what point do you make adjustments Mike. You have no D Line, no secondary. Who is going to finally make a play on this defense

  374. SweetWilliam Says:

    The announcers just said Keenum is outplaying your savior.


  375. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Announcer said it best….
    So far today, Keenum is the best QB on the field

  376. Mord Says:

    If Keenum could play all his games against the Bucs, he’d earn a gold jacket

  377. BucEmUp Says:

    Record first half passing for the backup QB in 28 games played. Pathetic

  378. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Can anyone even name the Bucs pass rushers?

  379. Bird Says:

    Where is all the Chris baker haters?

    They are running right up the gut

  380. LOLBuc Says:

    Bottom line is bucs D cannot get off the field.

  381. bucnut2 Says:

    Winston is a TO machine.

  382. Architek Says:

    Jameis innacuracy is really hurting us

  383. Andrew Says:

    Worst defense I have ever seen.

  384. Dreambig Says:

    Dalvin Cook > OJ Howard. Big Surprise!

  385. g720 Says:

    I can understand the problems with all the defensive players out, but what the hell is wrong with this offense.

  386. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe these are different guys with familiar numbers…. and maybe the starting guys are hanging out at the “Mall of America”.

  387. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Did half of you not watch that game????

  388. Bucs Says:

    Lol love you idiots saying relax it’s early lol.

    Are you not watching the sa,e game as the rest of us?


  389. Evolvingbucfan Says:

    This….. is………ugly

  390. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh god, stop with the crybaby stuff – the Bucs have ZERO depth on defense and if you paid any attention at all to anything you’d know that. The Bucs will be fine – I always had them losing this game, you don’t go on the road in the NFL and win against teams with great defenses – and you will never win anything if Ryan Smith is on your team and you let him play.

    I do have the Bucs winning the Pats game – so that’s where we get our W back.

    Also I had the Bucs losing to the Giants at home but now I feel good about that.

    It will be OK kiddos – don’t slash your wrists quite yet.

  391. Bucamania Says:

    Go after the ball VH3!!

  392. g720 Says:

    Another great job Hargreaves!!!!!

  393. bucnut2 Says:

    Perfect thro by Keenum. Too bad we never see that!

  394. cmurda Says:

    Woooooow. How does VH 3 not make a play on that ball. We didn’t show up this week. We are getting humiliated. Are you ready for all the National outlets to declare this team nothing more than the last year.

  395. mark2001 Says:

    Another Touchdown…. Hargraves is burned again….remind me…he was a first rounder?

  396. Dreambig Says:

    Hargraves absolutely sucks today.

  397. The Real Drew Says:

    Hargreaves stinking it up today

  398. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Remembering when they were talking about drafting VH3 and I said NO TOO SMALL

  399. Architek Says:


  400. Buc believer Says:

    We’re done

  401. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    It ain’t over yet.

  402. DB55 Says:

    four quarter game #don’t give up just yet

  403. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    This reminds me of the Az. Cardinals game last year. How do we go on the road with another flat tire two years in a row. And BTW, not to be Captain Obvious, but Ryan Smith is terrible.

  404. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Terrible. Hype bubble just went pop!

  405. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    VH3 legit sucks right now. This defense is useless.

  406. THETRUTH Says:

    Hg3 sucks

  407. Sydney Says:

    Hargreaves, “Good young corner.” ? I haven’t seen it yet. He was horrible last year too. SOFT!

  408. Buc1987 Says:

    LOL ty Rod

  409. Rod Munch Says:

    If the Bucs don’t cut Ryan Smith at halftime Keenum is going to put up the NFL’s first 1000 yard day.

  410. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    VHIII actually played good defense on that play. You can’t get them all.

  411. unbelievable Says:





  412. O-town Says:

    Case Keenum = Buc Killa

  413. BuccoDav Says:

    Diggs is a badass today! Naybe JW should study Keenums film…

  414. Rrsrq Says:

    What the heck is going on out there?

  415. Bucs1856 Says:

    If Keenum only played the Bucs every game he would be the G.O.A.T!!

  416. Buc1987 Says:

    I just got a brand new 65 inch Sony TV yesterday….for THIS!

  417. Matts17 Says:

    The secondary is a laughing stock. Hargraves is vastly overrated. Pathetic effort across the board. Saw holes last week that were masked by Bear mistakes. Not this week. Gotta rethink my expectations for this team.

  418. AlteredEgo Says:

    I think I’ll go back to Irma yard clean up….Jameis…at least I’ll get it in the bag…

  419. VA BUC Says:

    This team will never change WATCH

  420. FR Says:

    Franchise QB lol lol yea rigth

    I was a big cheerleader for OJ Howard but I think we can see RB and DB was a much bigger need. Dalvin Cook is future Pro Bowler for sure

  426. Rob Says:

    Started with our jack a$$ receivers taking a knee for the National Anthem. We deserve the a$$ beating a real playoff team Is putting on us

    Yes RELAX…. Remember what I said

  428. unbelievable Says:

    Ouch 87. 14 more weeks to make it worth it!

    At least we’ll be hungry against the Giants.

    Hot Garbage. In other words, Same Ole Bucs.

  430. DB55 Says:

    Janus Winston is my superhero

  431. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow that was an amazing pass to Humphries.

  432. LongSeason Says:

    The Bears suck. The Vikings don’t. My analysis is that Koetter has coached the greatness out of Jameis. Bucs will go 8-8 maybe even 6-10.

  433. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    JW looks all world when down by 2 scores but throws picks when it counts. Josh Freeman written all over him. I hate saying that but I see no difference right now.

  434. bucnut2 Says:

    Why does JW keep looking for AH?

  435. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    These refs are refusing to call penalties on the Vikings…

  436. cmurda Says:

    I just watched a personal foul and PI on 2 of the last 3 plays uncalled. Are these refs for real?

  437. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Wtf was that throw

  438. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Because he is reliable.

  439. Evolvingbucfan Says:

    Come on Bucs

  440. unbelievable Says:

    They just dont call holding on the Vikings. It’s unreal.

  441. Lee Says:

    No pass rush! No win today. This ain’t a playoff defense…far from it. I don’t care how many guys are out. On a playoff team the, the next man up does his job. The Yucs don’t have a next man up. The first team DE’s suck. Glad hockey season starts in a few weeks.

  442. BuccoDav Says:

    I remember in training camp when Joe said JW couldn’t overthrow DJ…

  443. cmurda Says:

    Hump was held. F these refs. They aren’t making the game exactly fair.

  444. VA BUC Says:

    I so hate this team right now i cant believe were playing like this smgdh we gotta do better as a team

  445. Buc1987 Says:


  446. lurker Says:

    humphries was held

  447. ndog Says:

    Its clearly time to start wondering if Licht is the right GM and if Jamies is the right QB. Hargraves is not good enough, J. Evans was a wasted pick when we have no running game and we did not go after Cook. And Jameis I love Jamies but he keeps making the same mistakes and he just cant seem to correct them. He can work as hard as he wants but he just cant stop with the horrible throws. Oh yeah we also drafted a kicker in the 2nd round then cut him the next year. McCoy is overrated, Ayers is done, Swaggy doesnt want to play and we keep players like Charles Sims on the roster. What kind of GM does that? This team is simply not that talented and that is on the GM, plus the QB just might be the wrong guy. Maybe I was wrong on Jamies.

  448. bucnut2 Says:


  449. g720 Says:

    I guess Tight Ends for Bucs truly are only in the game for blocking. What a waste of talent not to use our TE’s.

  450. ATrain Says:

    Well we see where the bucs are

  451. MadMax Says:

    21-3 really? HAH!

  452. Back up kicker Says:

    Does defensive holding cease to fing exist when we throw to #10?? H-Christ!!

  453. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Winston looks like Mr. Magoo out there.

  454. FR Says:

    I will go to my grave saying the same thing Jamis is not a Franchise QB he is a good talker thats it.

  455. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    bucnut2 Says

    Oh H3LL yes it is. That last drive should have hand 45 yards in penalties against the Vikings. Can’t tell me that would not have made a difference.

  456. lurker Says:

    missed the game last week, then watch this…hmmmm

  457. unbelievable Says:

    In one week we went from one of the healthiest teams in the league to missing 5 starters…

    Jameis just not sharp with his long ball. Still. Ugh.

    Hoping we can turn it around in the 2nd half! Cmon!

  458. SOFIERCE Says:

    Let’s keep kneeling

  459. bucnut2 Says:

    SORRY guys- this is not a playoff team and Winston is NOT even close to being an elite QB

  460. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Do it soon so we don’t have to read your thoughts anymore then.

  461. lurker Says:

    jaguars stomped all over baltimore…who saw that coming?

  462. Mord Says:

    Several of the passes on that “drive” could easily have been picks. Several others, too. That’s mental. And lucky.

  463. MDFree Says:

    Really hating the commentary from all these negative Nancy’s on here. Have 1 bad half and all a sudden out seansons over. STFU this game is pissing me the freak off too but we gotta come out a completely different team in the 2nd half in order to have a chance in this one.

    I guess Tight Ends for Bucs truly are only in the game for blocking. What a waste of talent not to use our TE’s

    I was wondering the same thing. Is O.J. having a problem with the passing playbook?

  465. BigMacAttack Says:

    Looks like Lovie is coaching the defense. I agree about the refs sucking as well.

  466. VA BUC Says:

    Tampa SUCKS

  467. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    unbelievable Says
    “In one week we went from one of the healthiest teams in the league to missing 5 starters…”

    Plus Ayers. And all the ingame injuries are knee issues I think.

    Part of that might be the illegal blocks the refs refuse to call. Three times I saw their guys diving at knees and was not called once.

  468. unbelievable Says:

    Oh and the refs have absolutely been F@cking us.

    Cook fumbled on the 1st TD. Plus They are simply not calling blatant holding penalties by Vikes DBs.

    If officiating was fair the game would be 14 – 10.

    Whatever. F your circumstances. Offense needs to step up cuz the D is hurting!

  469. bucnut2 Says:

    I would love to have some of what you guys who ar complaining about refs are smoking. The refs aren’t the ones who are throwing int’s, not covering people, giving up big plays and not pressuring Keenum

  470. Rod Munch Says:

    OK Bucs get the ball to start the second half and they have moved the ball OK passing the ball – so hopefully Dirk doesn’t throw his traditional temper tantrum and actually tries to win the game. We can’t stop their offense, not with Ryan Smith and Chris Conte playing – so the Bucs have to score points and they literally should just onside kick everything if they score, because the Vikings are going to score at will anyways so at least try to get the ball back.

  471. Rrsrq Says:

    It ain’t over. We have weapons for Winston. Unfortunately the problem is not Ryan Smith, every corner gives something sometimes, but Hargreaves seems to give up the booty most of the time. No Spence, no Ayers, no Swaggy, no Grimes, no Jacq, no Kwon. I’m not too 😡, but at least play with some freakin heart and look like you aren’t defeated.

  472. ATrain Says:

    Diggs > Bucs Recievers

  473. BigMacAttack Says:

    Maybe the should have focused more on the game than their flag protest.

  474. Buc1987 Says:

    lurker…lol I missed the game last week too. Watched it when I got home and said our team looks like crap….the Bears just suck THAT bad.

    Walk the walk Jameis or walk the plank.

  475. O-town Says:

    Fact: If Keenum is on his arse, he does not complete passes.

  476. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    I have held judgemnet on our first rounder but, just curious has he done anything worth while yet? It may be early in the year but thats really not an excuse. I havent seen crap. i’ve always felt it was a wasted pick. Man 2 man is not working. The blitz’s are not getting there. Soft zone is not working, cover 2 man is not working. We need some either zone blitzs or just solid zone coverage. We have to get pressure and atleast attempt to cover somebody. Run D has been decent. Offensively, Jameis needs to stop being careless. We need to get play action going, get him out the pocket and keep the D honest. Ugly stuff here ladies and gents. Still another half.

  477. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Get ready for a comeback victory. It IS coming.

  478. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    I truly thought these type of games were a thing of the past.

    Boy was I wrong.

    Our Secondary is giving me flashbacks of Lovie.

  479. Supersam Says:

    Winston is trash. Jackson to worried about kneeling then catching the damn ball, now he’s in Evans head. Go back to where you came from, defense sucks no pass rush offense is predictable no imagination. This team sucks, bunch of whiny cry baby’s who wanna “protest” instead of play football,

  480. MadMax Says:

    lose the rest too…..thats what the owners and supporters get!

  481. unbelievable Says:

    lol Atrain not at all.

    It’s more that the Vikes D > Bucs D.

  482. passthebuc Says:

    Remember we are only 2 years away from Lovie. It takes 5 years to build a great team. We have not drafted well until the last 2 years and a lot of mistakes were made. Also, nothing will change until JW grows. He has not learned he has limitations and until he decides to play within his opportunities, he will remain only a good QB.

  483. VA BUC Says:

    @FR i agree jameis is just a good talker the guy is not an franchise QB i dont know what people see i swear we shouldve taken Marriotta

  484. AlteredEgo Says:

    Tom Brady…is turning the page to the week after the Bucs…you think Keenum can throw the ball ?….Jameis =’s the FSU kicker….

  485. mark2001 Says:

    Not saying this game wouldn’t have still been in favor of Minnesota. But the officials are calling nothing on Minnesota regarding penalties…. I guarantee you if the Packers were out there and not us, Minnesota would have well over a hundred yards in penalties again. And you do have to wonder about the quality of some of the draft picks of the last couple of years, not even considering the “lost weekend” second rounder last year.

  486. ndog Says:

    Man Hargraves was a horrible pick and most of us saw that from a mile away. Those of you going after Ryan Smith please he was a late round draft pick, Hargraves was the 11th overall pick and is getting beat like a dirty rug that is who you should be ripping as he totally sucks. I will repeat what I said the entire draft season up till that draft. He is too slow, and too short to ever be anything more than average. Wasted draft pick period!!!

  487. Rod Munch Says:

    The dude on the Bears just stopped at the one yard line because he was celebrating before getting in the end zone and got the ball slapped out of his hands – what a moron.

  488. BigMacAttack Says:

    Rhodes holds our receivers on almost every play

  489. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Bucs look terrible. Everybody is hurt. Cornerbacks are a joke. Jameis looks lost. No pressure from the D-line. No rushing. We seem to be good at making no name qb’s look like superstars. Crazy…. Case Keenum eating us alive. Embarrassing. Doesn’t seem like we’re interested in taking the next step to be a team ready to compete for real.

    Are you high today?

  496. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We have absolutely no pass rush……no hands up……no pressure……our CBs don’t have a chance…..need more LBs blitzing…..now we will get a dose of Cook with a couple of long passes….lookout!!!

  497. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    It looks bleak now, but still a half of football left. It’s also our second game. there are 14 more left. No sense in jumping ship yet.

    I’m hoping so…

    I’m out. Most of the posters here today are the usual trolls who root against the team. See ya.

    I’m going to enjoy the comeback.

  500. lurker Says:

    5 defensive starters out to begi the game, then some in-game injuries. mike smith is calling what he can with the inadequacies. smith and hargreaves are making mistakes.

    offense need to play better. winston still has slow starts and bonehead plays.

  501. King C Says:

    ndog it’s one game… stop being so emotional
    When they win next week You’ll be saying they’re going to the super bowl. smh

  502. unbelievable Says:

    Bad play is bc we are missing 5-6 starters on defense and clearly LB is the only position group with any real depth.

    No running game on offense and Jameis was not sharp.

    Really hoping JW can turn it on in the 2nd half but not sure we can overcome this deficit against this good defense.

  503. BucFan4Life Says:

    No offense either. It’s not just the defense’s fault. It’s a complete team failure.

  504. AlteredEgo Says:

    Jameis =’s Jameis….hence the state of the Bucs…2017 NFL is a fast paced …quick hit…accurate passing pin ball ball….Jameis will never be able to play in with his inaccurate passing flutter ball

  505. mark2001 Says:

    Let’s see who in the media calls out the Refs this week. It is almost a forbidden topic among most of them, because it admits the game isn’t as pure as the driven snow.

  506. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Our offense has no excuse…..we are healthy with weapons.

  507. Doctor Stroud Says:

    We’ve got them right where we want them.

  508. unbelievable Says:

    @mark2001 officiating has been declining for years but you’re right, no one in any media will discuss it.

  509. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We’re flucked. Need our defense to get healthy

  510. lurker Says:

    we need some turnovers and ts’d

    go bucs

  511. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Find it interesting also, we just had to have the TE Howard cause he was a stud who can catch and he sure can block. Sheesh… We can’t even run the ball. Cook looks pretty active out there. What was the reason he isn’t a Buc if we aren’t going to even use Howard? Oh, we were told Rb’s aren’t a good pick. Sheesh…. At this rate we should’ve picked up a D-line guy or cornerback.

  512. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    I think they made Winston some prescription glasses at halftime. McCoy said he is warmed up and ready to start the game.

  513. Bucamania Says:

    Keystone cops. Can’t even snap the ball.

  514. DislocatedBucsFan Says:


    # Fake news

  516. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pathetic. Why has god cursed me to watch this garbage?

  517. mark2001 Says:

    Now we see what it means to convert a guard to a center.

  518. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    now THAT is a 4 man rush

    Marpet continues letting the suck bug go around.

  520. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk’s big halftime adjustments…

    Come out on first down and…

    Run up the middle.

    Dirk quit on the team yet again.

  521. Bkbuc Says:

    This team cares more about making a political stand rather than winning football games

  522. Bucs Says:

    Wow that’s how you come out for the start of the second half?

    My God just pathetic.

  523. ATrain Says:




  524. unbelievable Says:

    No 3rd down conversions.

  525. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    gonna be a very long season. Koetter and Licht seats will be glowing 15 weeks from now. JW needs competition next year.

  526. SweetWilliam Says:

    So much room for optimism.

  527. cmurda Says:

    There you go Dirk. Way to make those halftime adjustments.

  528. BucFan4Life Says:

    3 and out over and over. Thanks Dirk.

  529. unbelievable Says:

    Lol DBF

  530. Rod Munch Says:

    Joe doesn’t talk about the officiating either – if you point out the fact the refs gave the Vikings a free TD he just calls you a homer and says you need to stop whinning. Not kidding, Joe Buc, the biggest homer out there, calls you a homer if you point out the awful jobs the refs do.

  531. BucFan4Life Says:

    Does Marpet practice snapping? Ever?

  532. ATrain Says:

    Why aren’t TE in every down
    Pass to them
    Dumb off passes
    Kill them with5 yards at a time

  533. Bucs Says:

    And who the he ll is calling plays?

    First down run up the middle every single time.

    Dirk you suck. Anyone who says otherwise is an idiot.

  534. Jim Says:

    The Bucs will bounce back…if not today than against NY and NE.

  535. BucFan4Life Says:

    And Hargreaves….burned over and over for big plays.

  536. mark2001 Says:

    Don’t forget what happened against NO last year, in a game we should have been able to exert our will in, if we had the horses. We are better…maybe one or two games better. Maybe we can get into the playoffs. But a SB contender? Sorry to say it, but we are a long way from that.

  537. g720 Says:

    You have all this talent on offense. Who to blame other than Koetter and Winston. Especially Koetter.

  538. unbelievable Says:

    I thought last season we had finally moved past the refs constantly screwing us. Today seems like SOS

  539. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This team can’t handle any praise

  540. jugheadfla Says:

    on the brightside we’ll only be 1-1…….frown

  541. Buc1987 Says:

    Is JW a fraud?

    Stay tuned.

  542. Buc believer Says:

    We SUCK!!!

  543. cmurda Says:

    Ball game. This team is unprepared. Dirk and M Smith did a terrible job of getting owned.

  544. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It’s a blowout.

  545. Andrew Says:

    Going to be another blowout…..and there it is

  546. ATrain Says:

    Come On

    This is Lovie Ball

  547. Mo_Downs Says:

    Time to wake-up and smell the end zone.

    Looks like fear in the Bucs eyes.

    Not a good look..!!

    Jameis, and the defense suck, today, so far.

    And, I just signed up for NFL Sunday Ticket.

    Thanks, Dirk..!!

    Can’t wait for Joe to find a way to blame Lovie..!!

    Oh, BROTHER..!!

  548. Mord Says:

    Vintage ugly

  549. AlteredEgo Says:

    JAMEIS….will NEVER be able to throw like Keenum….

  550. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Brady will set every NFL record for single game in 2 weeks on national tv against this defense, way to upgrade defense licht

  551. ATrain Says:

    Bucs didn’t practice last week does it show

  552. mark2001 Says:

    An A kicking…plain and simple. And with the refs help? Annihilation.

  553. cmurda Says:

    @87 forget JW. He’s made a couple bad throws. This one is on this pathetic defense. I don’t care how many injuries we have. I’ve always thought M Smith is garbage.

  554. FR Says:

    Go Bucs lol lol

  555. g720 Says:

    Smith I can understand because of injuries, but Koetter, your #1 goat.



  557. DB55 Says:

  559. Fool me once... Says:

    Bucs were not Minnesota ready.

  560. unbelievable Says:

    You know if 1 of our receivers ran into the end zone celebrating like that we would get a taunting penalty. You just know it.

  561. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    we look like a high school team. Everyone is wide open.

  562. Rod Munch Says:

    Games over – Dirk comes out on 1st down running up the middle, meanwhile the Vikings throw deep and get a TD.

    Dirk quit on the team, there was no adjustments, this is just one of those games. Pull the starters and let’s go home.

  563. Dave Says:

    This team is never going to be any good.

  564. Buc believer Says:

    Buc 1987 the question isn’t is JW a fraud the question is where is GMC??? It’s about time this dude is held accountable! He is getting NO pressure even though he is on a one to one in a lot of plays. Cmon let’s all be real here!

  565. Bucs Says:



    Absolutely not. No way this team will make the playoffs. No way

    Mark my words now.

    This team will NOT make the playoffs.

  566. mark2001 Says:

    I smell a comeback… and if not that, what do I smell?

  567. Destinjohnny Says:

    It’s lack of talent

  568. AlteredEgo Says:

    Watch a little of college football…if you want to see what the future of NFL QB looks like….please read this Bryan and Joel…

  569. Say What? Says:

    Why no replay of the fumble that occurred right before the touchdown?????

    Why didn’t Koetter call timeout as he is watching 2 bucs try to run off the field????

    This game is on the entire team…. HEAD COACH included!

  570. Jim Says:

    Settle down and enjoy the game. Win some lose some. How do you think the flight back from England will be for the Ravens?

  571. Bucamania Says:

    Bucs getting clowned now. Disgusting.

  572. VA BUC Says:

    I cant wait to read @joe articles lmao he’s gonna dog this team 😂😂😂

  574. bucnut2 Says:

    So- is it still the refs?

  575. BucFan4Life Says:

    I’m not going to any more games this year. It’s my protest.

  576. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I am very annoyed with the offence. The defence never had a chance as soon as I saw Grimes was out and Ryan Toast Smith was starting
    This sucks.

  577. SweetWilliam Says:

    maybe JW can give a great motivating speech; you know, like a great leader and fix everything.

  578. Blade Runner Says:

    If the D can’t contain Keemun who looks like an All-Pro today, imagine what Manning and Brady will do to this defense that has a weak pass rush and average secondary

  579. Jim Says:

    Challenging the fumble is futile. The refs are not giving the Bucs any breaks.

  580. FR Says:

    This team is not playoff ready what was the point in getting D Jax if ur QB can thrown a long ball.

  581. Rod Munch Says:

    Who was the dope that was saying Ryan Smith isn’t the problem?

    Oh right it was Joe who said in the preseason we had awesome depth at corner. LOL!

  582. AlteredEgo Says:

    McCoy = Winston…..time to move on….

  583. Buc1987 Says:

    So who are our DB’s now? Smith and who?

  584. Zwak Says:

    Wait till next year!

  585. cmurda Says:

    O Line is now awful and who knows what the heck JW is doing. He’s lost in space

    Well another long season. This team is not good.

  587. ARGH_M8E Says:


  588. Bucamania Says:

    Commentators are right. Bucs getting outworked to a man.

  589. mark2001 Says:

    Saywhat…he didn’t have to throw the flag. Every TD is automatically reviewed. The Refs weren’t going to call that a fumble under any circumstance.

  590. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Love licht passed on laremy tunsil for hargreaves and alan cross catching passes but not oj?

  591. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Malik hooker just got called for roughing the passer on the same exact play that the Vikings just made.

  592. jugheadfla Says:

    is it me or does Winston have 0 pocket presence? Byron Leftwich-ish

  593. SweetWilliam Says:

    The said “High Power Offense” is it?

  594. John Coctoastin Says:

    So glad the Bucs made today about pissing on flag rather than playing football…..

  595. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    our O-line isn’t that great either

  596. ATrain Says:

    High Powered Offense
    I keep hearing that But I see Nothing

    Call Duke Power I think our High Powered Offense is without electricity

  597. Bucamania Says:

    OMG. That’s not a hold on Dotson!! Unreal.

  598. mark2001 Says:

    Where is the freaking horse collar?

  599. cmurda Says:

    Penalty on us which was not a penalty. LMAO. That was simply not a hold. Refs have an agenda and it should be called out.

    Let’s not forget last year! Week 2 loss led to 3 losses in a row. Nothing to worry about with the Giants and Patriots up next.

  601. Bucamania Says:

    Hand off to tippy toes. Really?

  602. Rod Munch Says:

    Is the story true that McKay once cut a kicker at halftime and then didn’t let him on the team bus or fly back with the team? If you can do that the Bucs need to do that again, this time to #29.

  603. unbelievable Says:

    Are u fkn kidding me with the holding penalty?

    Will the J0es finally grow the balls to call out this piss poor officiating?

  604. Anderson Says:

    Bucs look like a team that’s been distract it by trump this week. How embarrassing. Bucs wake up and try to win a super bowl. Instead of watching the media manipulize everybody.

  605. cmurda Says:

    Running twinkle toes up the middle down 4 tds. Now that is great playcalling.

  606. ATrain Says:


  607. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    think some ppl at joe bucs too close to licht to objectively call out his poor personnel moves and always scream: marpet…. well at some point these moves are not lovies anymore

  608. tmaxcon Says:

    all you blind optimists looking pretty freaking stupid once again… never an easy win for a bucs football team. especially with cancer93 on the roster. NO KWON = NO DEFENSE… Simple as that. The leader of the losing culture strikes again. 93 takes the life out of an entire team with his love of losing. I guess that Vh3 canton bust has been hid destroyed once and for all.

  609. BuccoDav Says:

    Get Sims out of the backfield!

  610. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Down by 100 points and Dirk is still calling runs up the middle on 1st down.

  611. DB55 Says:

    Maybe spread this out and use a ladder underneath flat stuff

  612. mark2001 Says:

    cmudra…let’s see how many of the local media have the cajones to call the refs out….it seems there is an unwritten rule to shut up and stuff a sock in it.

  613. unbelievable Says:

    Can someone ask Koetter why they ever run Sims up the middle still?

    Seriously? HE CANT DO IT.

  614. Bucamania Says:

    That wasn’t helmet to helmet?

  615. cmurda Says:

    Targeting on Brate. Nice call refs

  616. ATrain Says:

    Brate is out

  617. King C Says:

    I think is all these so-called Bucs fans get to feel better about their lives when they rag on the Bucs.
    Again, it’s just one game… Bucs overachieved in Week 1 and obviously underachieve in Week 2
    Going to Minnesota and winning should have been an underdog anyway
    and Case Keenum plays really well against us
    In other news Carolina is getting blown out at home and Pittsburgh and Miami are losing big

  618. Rod Munch Says:

    We scored a TD…

    But will the refs figure out a way to take it away from us… Until we kick the XP I don’t believe the refs will let us keep this.

  619. AlteredEgo Says:

    Brate…is concussed

  620. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Looks like a concussion for Brate

  621. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    That was a big time throw by jameis

  622. DB55 Says:

    It’s a flag on sportsmanlike conduct she kicked at the game for that number 34 hit on break

  623. ATrain Says:

    That’s a flag
    Helmet to helmet

  624. BucsFan Says:

    Bucs look bad today too many misses in the draft we giving away second round picks like it’s nothing Roberto, Austin Jenkins, top 7 pick to Jets for 1 season of Revis, Justin Evans not playing we just not that talented

  625. SweetWilliam Says:

    They are wrong, the game is over.

  626. mark2001 Says:

    Targeting baby…launched into Brates head.

  627. Mord Says:

    How was that Brate TD not flagged for headhunting?

  628. BuccoDav Says:

    Ok! Epic comeback starts right now!!!

  629. cmurda Says:

    Wow. That is the very definition of defenseless receiver. I don’t care if we would lose this game anyway, the refs should be held accountable.

  630. unbelievable Says:

    Where’s the fkn flag on that hit?

  631. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    #34 PIECE OF SH#$ how’s that not a penalty!?


    Brate might be concussed

  633. jugheadfla Says:

    led with the head…..wtf

  634. Keir Says:

    I love Jameis’ attitude, but his play is still a little too unsettled.
    Let’s hope we can get a few defensive stops and come back.

  635. unbelievable Says:


  636. cmurda Says:

    The dude will end up being fined and not even a penalty call. There seriously is hate against the Bucs every year from the refs and I want to know why.

  637. Easy Denman Says:

    That should’ve been a penalty

  638. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @BuccoDav hope you right!?!?!?!

    D get a turnover now!!!!

  639. lurker Says:

    brate concussion

  640. WeAreLost Says:

    The refs are facked up. Go Bucs!!!!!!

  641. JAB83 Says:

    How is that not targeting on Brate? Thats some races BS!!! .. Lol… Just kidding Im white…. Stuff like that dont make me cry….

  642. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Hey Dusthty, don’t think bringing up Lovie helps your cause just cause the new picks suck. He wasn’t good either. You can’t beat a negative with an negative.

  643. jugheadfla Says:

    lmfao….Jackie Chan as a dramatic actor……please

  644. unbelievable Says:

    This officiating is beyond horrible. It’s downright dangerous for 1 of the teams on the field today.


  645. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs should onside kick – seriously, you’re not going to stop the Vikings if you have Ryan Smith on the field, so just try to get the ball back – they’re going to score in any case.

  646. TheLittleGrayCells Says:

    Jameis has been fine, one bad mistake. The rest of the team has been playing like trash, plus Mike Smith is getting OWNED.

  647. Bucamania Says:

    Ryan Smith Pick 6 is coming baby!

  648. Jim Says:

    I guess the refs only got envelopes from the Vikings this week.

  649. ATrain Says:

    NFL needs full time Refs

  650. g720 Says:

    They need to bring the college rules in for reviewing targeting regardless if there is a penalty called. But NFL really is doing everything it can do to reduce head injuries. What a joke.!

  651. unbelievable Says:

    Cmurda it’s been like that for as long as I can remember.

    I thought we had finally moved past it last season, but apparently not.

  652. Rod Munch Says:

    If Ryan Smith got a pick 6 then that would make up approximately 6 of the 54 points he’ll give up today.

  653. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Defense can’t stop a nosebleed. Soft as charmin

  654. mark2001 Says:

    If these refs aren’t looking for new part time jobs in the High School circuit, greeters at Walmart or bagging groceries next week, there is no honesty and integrity in the halls of the NFL Offices.

  655. CitruscountyBUC Says:

    They are not out of this if they can start playing defense. Let’s see what kind of leadership they have now.

  656. Easy Denman Says:

    Cook looks to be shook

  657. JAB83 Says:

    Instant KARMA… F DC

  658. cmurda Says:

    This is just too easy. Their playcalling is obvious and M Smith isnt good enough to dial up the defensive calls.

  659. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I thought lovie was in Illinois?

  660. LongSeason Says:

    Can someone meet VHIII at Tampa International and tell him he is not welcome in Tampa?

  661. g720 Says:

    Play calling by Minnesota makes Koetters calling look like high school. Totally being outcoached today.

  662. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    GMC hurt too?

  663. ATrain Says:

    Holding on the line Please

  664. Rod Munch Says:

    Beckwith is no Kwon, he just doesn’t have the speed. I think he’ll be an excellent LB on the outside, but in the middle he’s not quite there. Not a big insult however since Kwon is the best player on the defense.

  665. SweetWilliam Says:

    America’s Quarterback: Keenum.

  666. LOLBuc Says:

    Defense can’t get off the field.

  667. Aristotle Says:

    So apparently we don’t have cornerback depth… can you call Revis now?

  668. mark2001 Says:

    ATrain….are you kidding? These refs?

  669. Jim Says:

    Everyone should get the names of these refs and keep track of them in upcoming gmanes.

  670. BuccoDav Says:

    TheLittleGrayCells Says:
    September 24th, 2017 at 2:59 pm
    Jameis has been fine, one bad mistake. The rest of the team has been playing like trash, plus Mike Smith is getting OWNED.

    Jameis is supposed to be able to win a shootout against a third string QB. Especially with the weapons that have been accrued.

  671. ndog Says:

    One team can run the ball and the other cant. i wonder why that is? Maybe because they have an elite RB and we dont? I wonder how you get one of those? Maybe you can draft one, oh that right we needed to draft a 3rd string safety instead. One team has a pass rush and one doesnt well we could have went after Calais Campbell but instead we signed a guy who doesnt want to practice. And we are wondering why we SUCK!!!!!!

  672. Bucs Says:

    Why exactly did we draft oj Howard again?

    He’s not a big part of the offense at all.

    So we got him to be a blocker?

  673. lurker Says:

    damn, the pats are looking beastly

  674. g720 Says:

    Hargreaves, where were you on that play? 20 yards off of the receiver?

  675. ndog Says:

    Man Hargraves is useless!

  676. mark2001 Says:

    They have been holding all day and haven’t called it…. why did they call it that time?

  677. Andrew Says:

    Hargreaves is TERRIBLE

  678. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    secondary and DL are straight garbage

  679. cmurda Says:

    Our D Line sucks but I am losing any kind of confidence in VH3. You cant play in Mike Smith’s pathetic defense 10 yards off of the receiver.

  680. unbelievable Says:

    Game over.

    Defense can’t stop anything.

  681. AlteredEgo Says:

    Jameis…will never NEVER….be able to throw a football like Keenum….never has…never will….G’Boy’z…cut your loses….

  682. SweetWilliam Says:

    keenums mistake was a ball in the ground. Your savior sends a pick in the same situation.



  684. LOLBuc Says:

    Frustrating to watch the D today.

  685. Matts17 Says:

    This team still hasn’t addressed the invisible pass rush. Secondary has been exposed by a well below average QB. Nobody can cover or tackle. Just can’t trust this team.

  686. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Bucs are made of glass unfortunately.

  687. Rod Munch Says:

    Seriously – why didn’t we onside kick? If you’ve watched this game at all you know the defense will not stop them – so at least try to get the ball back.

  688. cmurda Says:

    No pass rush at all. This defense has cost us the game. Mike Smith needs to be held accountable. The Vikes offense is not this explosive. No tackling. Mike Smith sucks and I stand by that.

  689. ATrain Says:

    Maybe the Bucs should have found a practice facility up north during the storm
    It shows they did not practice for a week

  690. Buc believer Says:

    Our run defense is a freeking JOKE!!

  691. ndog Says:

    BTW anyone seen McCoy today when our team is down and we need someone to step up?

    Also Blake you still think it was a good idea for us to not go after Cook?

    Get a new sport brother cause you blind!

  692. g720 Says:

    Nice tackling Bucs. Throw the towel in and lets not embarrass yourselves anymore than you have already.

  693. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  694. Bucamania Says:

    A Buc defender goes down on every play

  695. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    U sound dumb as Fluck.

  696. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ndog right on wonder if the joes will call out lichts questionable personnel moves

  697. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This is worse than a Lovie defense.

  698. mark2001 Says:

    Buc…the guys are worn out now. I don’t see that last run as an indicator of the run defense.

  699. lurker Says:

    shoulda been tackled

  700. EA Says:

    They’re missing tackles up the ying yang, everyone has the flu

  701. ATrain Says:

    Smith now is hurt

    Who let Raheem back In The building

  702. Bucamania Says:

    Enough wit the Cook nonsense. He’s not the reason the Bucs got shelled today.

  703. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    It doesn’t matter how far they have to go on 3rd down. They get it anyway. We can’t cover anyone.

  704. TheBucsAnthem Says:



  705. cmurda Says:

    Jason Licht’s picks or lack thereof is not looking good. Ryan Smith, VH3 not cutting the mustard. The Vikes just put out the blueprint to beat up on this weak defense.

  706. STEVEN UNGER Says:

    this defense is playing like garbage. with the pass rush i can play against ot amd look lile tom brady. this is pathetic after such hope last week, if this is a sign for the defense it will be a long season. note to gm we need a pass rush and have for years…

  707. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    I don’t care what anyone has to say about our offense.

    Our secondary is the only reason we are losing this game.

  708. TheBucsAnthem Says:




  709. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    OMG mccoy just gave up on that play…. and so glad jason gump didnt draft cook

  710. Bucamania Says:

    Get GMC out of there.

  711. BuccoDav Says:

    Yes, the defense sucks today but how do you excuse 10 points from our dynamic offense today?

  712. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Hot garbage

  713. g720 Says:

    The reason Cook is running like he is because his freaking line is opening up holes. What is our line doing. Jack squat!

  714. ATrain Says:

    McCoy has played 70% so he is spent

  715. mark2001 Says:

    The question is, is Hargraves a nickle corner…or a backup. He hasn’t looked like a starting CB.

  716. Rod Munch Says:

    Can’t wait to see Dirks big response of running up the middle on 1st down when we get the ball back.

  717. King C Says:

    Gotta remember for next year’s draft .. Don’t pass pass on RBs like Cook and Hunt

  718. The Anomaly Says:

    Dropping like flies. Buncha quitters.

  719. FR Says:

    If a back up qb can do this to u what will a starter do.

  720. SweetWilliam Says:

    Bucmania, you are right! Its the QB difference.

  721. Dave Says:

    The defense is weak and soft. More than half the starters are injured only after 1.75 games?

    And they got 14 in a row to go after this?

  722. TheBucsAnthem Says:



  723. Destinjohnny Says:

    We are cramping up in Minnesota?

  724. LongSeason Says:

    Do we have defensive line playing today or did we put tackling sleds out on the field for the Vikings to block. New prediction, Bucs win 1 or 2 more games. We get swept by NFC South.

  725. Bucs Says:

    Yea shoulda drafted cook. No doubt about it.

    Oj Howard nowhere to be found except blocking and the guy we shoulda drafted is tearing it up every week.

  726. mark2001 Says:

    I’ll be the first to say it… if McCoy goes down, it is almost as bad as if Jameis goes down.

  727. cmurda Says:

    Ward is about the only slight bright spot I can find.

  728. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice play by Ward there.

  729. Buc believer Says:

    Of course McCoy is going to say he is hurt!!! What other excuse will he have??? He just likes hearing the clapping when he comes off the field after one of his “injuries”

  730. lurker Says:

    Greg Auman‏Verified account @gregauman 42s43 seconds ago

    So Bucs started without Alexander/Grimes/Baker and have seen Ayers, Spence, McCoy, Hargreaves and Smith all out at times with injuries.

  731. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Glad I didn’t waste any money going to Minnesota for this garbage

  732. LongSeason Says:

    Agree about Howard. Another underwear footballer who disappears when it counts.

  733. mark2001 Says:

    Anomoly…not quitters…just tired. Talk about bandwagon fans.

  734. NFLNut Says:


    1. TRADE for a quality CB (Richard Sherman, Trumaine Johnson, etc) NOW

    2. Jameis is Favre 2.0 (but will be better when all is said and done as Favre was nowhere near as good as Jameis at Jameis’ current age) and that throw he made to Rudy was insanely Favre-esque … as was the crazy one he threw that Brate came in and caught to save from being picked

    3. Jameis is the man on this team and a true alpha male and leader … it’s got to be tough to stand for the anthem when not only do you have your top two receivers kneeling but you’re a black QB that people are probably expecting and wanting to take a knee

    4. DO NOT GET FREAKED OUT ABOUT THIS LOSS … not only should we NOT beat a quality team in their house when we have FIVE of our top 7 defenders out (Kwon, Grimes, Spence, Baker and Ayers) but the Panthers are getting slaughtered in their own house by the horrible Saints, the Steelers are getting smacked by the Bears who we dominated and the Seahawks and Giants have both look like straight garbage all year … we may not win the division (as the Falcons look good) but we have a great shot at making the playoffs and scaring the crap out of whoever we play

    5. This team is built to play up-tempo, air-it-out football … Koetter needs to get it in gear!

  735. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! The McCoy haters are out… out of all the garbage play on defense the McCoy haters want to talk trash about him? Seriously, if you hate McCoy, do me a favor and stick your face in a running lawn mower.

    God bless.

  736. LongSeason Says:

    McCoy needs to be traded. He is too nice a guy who cannot play with any kind of mean streak or killer instinct. He accepts losing to readily. Not worth his contract.

  737. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    McCoy hurt again. Shocking.

  738. WeAreLost Says:

    Well said NFLNut well said.

  739. mark2001 Says:

    Howard will be fine…Jameis will be fine. The Officials stole the juice out of us in this game. Everything from targeting to horse collar tackles to offensive holding to holding. We are a good team…but never had much of a chance against 15 or 16 other players on the field at all times, supporting the other sideline.

  740. lurker Says:

    any given sunday

  741. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I agree. Trade for a cb or one of these Minnesota edge rushers

  742. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey wow, Dirk responds with…

    A run up the middle on first down…


  743. Dave Says:

    Keenum’s deep ball is way better than Jameis’s.

  744. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    now we are back to penalties again.

  745. Aristotle Says:

    Dont draft TE in the 1st! That’s about as easy of a rule as not drafting a kicker in the second

  746. NFLNut Says:

    Oops, I spoke to soon on the Falcons maybe …. Matt Ryan has thrown TWO PICKS and the Lions have tied it up … interesting

  747. SweetWilliam Says:

    Did America’s Quaterback, the Savior win yet?

  748. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Take Winston out

  749. ATrain Says:

    McCoy should do Pillow commercials

  750. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Bucs haters, do me a favor and go eat a big bowl of ebola – you’re garbage and you won’t be missed.

    God bless.

  751. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    McCoy probably wasn’t warmed up yet. I think it was only his second or third play of the game.

  752. King C Says:

    Right on NFL Nut

    Too bad we had all offseason to get a RB game together and so far have failed

  753. mark2001 Says:

    Targeting again…those dirty SOB’s won’t call anything,

  754. cmurda Says:

    Best deep ball of the year by JW. Great catch D Jack. I do respect the heart on this offense. Now can the defense do something?

  755. LongSeason Says:

    Reedy is needy. Wants him a catch. Gets him a catch.



  757. BuccoDav Says:

    Hey NUT,
    Favre won games, even early in his career… stop the comparisons between between JW and Favre.

  758. SweetWilliam Says:

    Wow! The ucs are going to win for sure.

  759. g720 Says:

    Wow, Jameis gave his receiver a chance to catch the ball instead of throwing it 5 yards over his head.

  760. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Great pass n catch

  761. SweetWilliam Says:


  762. King C Says:

    I’m not saying drafting OJ Howard was a mistake I’m just saying D.Cook would have fit a better need. We could have traded up for him in 2nd round just like we traded up for Aguay-no lol

  763. FR Says:

    At least we fixed the kicking game woooooohooooo

  764. Jim Says:

    I think the bucs have some come on their back.

  765. Bucamania Says:

    Nice play. Here we go!!!! Someone make a play on D now.

  766. Rod Munch Says:

    Fantastic throw and catch there!

    Now Dirk you dope, ONSIDE kick the ball, your defense is terrible and will not stop them today. At least give yourself a chance. It doesn’t matter if the Vikings get the ball at midfield or at the 25, they’re going to score, so try to get the ball back.

  767. LongSeason Says:

    The celebration was meh. But I will take it because it means a TD. DJax gotta work on it.

  768. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Trade GMC for Sherman str8 up

  769. USFBUC Says:

    Some you guys just need to go away and never post here again. It was announced early this week the flu was going around the facility. Once the first person came in the building with that it was going to spread. On top of the fact that who knows how many guys are sick we have multiple starters injured on defense.

  770. cmurda Says:

    Please stop talking about Cook. First of all he’s not on the team. Secondly, Licht tried to trade up and get him and couldn’t.

  771. BuccoDav Says:

    There you go, Will!

  772. mark2001 Says:

    GMC may be the best player on this team. Maybe some of you might want to watch the line play sometimes. He is double teamed much of the time. Who else is catching that attention?

  773. Buc believer Says:

    Of course GMC is back out there. So if we do come back everyone will say what a warrior he is!

  774. cmurda Says:

    There you go D. Need another TD JW.

  775. Pa Privateer Says:

    3 and out lets go bucs!!!!

  776. SweetWilliam Says:

    Winston is no savior.

  777. Rod Munch Says:

    Wait… was Ryan Smith not on the field that drive?

    This changes everything!

  778. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    NFL nut: even if you have players out, others gotta step up. Stop making excuses. funny hearing people say you’re making good points. You’re blah blah blah don’t mean jack when you lose the game. I didn’t care who’s out, we shouldn’t be getting blown out by Case Keenum. As far as saying this team will scare people. We don’t scare anyone, if we don’t get a body on open receivers. That’s not scary. You think getting an elite cornerback fixes this team when you can’t get a pass rush or even cover people on the opposite side. We can’t cover outside of a few players.

  779. King C Says:

    If Licht really wanted Cook he would have drafted him… period.

  780. BuccoDav Says:

    Alright, JW…show us your mettle!

  781. bucnut2 Says:

    A three and out, WOW?

  782. g720 Says:

    Mark 2001,, correct. If anyone thinks that GMC is any reason why this team is losing this game. go back and learn how to understand football. this team other than injuries and poor defense is losing because of coaching!!!



  784. Pa Privateer Says:

    I BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    let’s go BUCS!!!!!!!!!!

  785. Jim Says:

    Case Keenum is Buster Douglas to the Bucs. =(

  786. Rod Munch Says:

    Rich – The 2003 Bucs defense was the same as the 2002 Bucs defense with one exception, they took our 3rd DB and moved him to safety – then in that all-time collapse game where Dungy completely schooled Gruden on MNF, our #2 corner, Brian Kelly was injured – the Bucs had no depth at corner and Manning destroyed them, he just looked where Kelly should have been and threw the ball over and over and over again. Sure Keenum isn’t Manning, but this defense isn’t the Bucs all-time great defense.

    Pretending injuries don’t matter is what cliche spewing dopes do. Of course injuries matter when you have zero depth.

  787. Rod Munch Says:

    Holy sweet Jesus, Dirk didn’t run it up the middle on first down to open the drive – he’s getting serious now…

  788. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Mr. Magoo strikes again.

  789. BuccoDav Says:

    Well, there it is…

  790. SweetWilliam Says:

    Winston is awesome!

  791. g720 Says:

    Jamies, you annus, what the hell kind of throw was that?

  792. cmurda Says:

    Too many times that JW materializes to kill this team. What does this guy think at times? Football iq is severely lacking.


    da fk?

  794. FR Says:


  795. Rod Munch Says:

    Jackson ran the wrong route there… ugh…

    That’s why you play players in preseason.

  796. Mord Says:


  797. Jim Says:

    That one is on Djax.

  798. LongSeason Says:

    What the ….!

  799. Rod Munch Says:

    IF you dopes think that INT is on Jameis then you should really go just play with your My Little Pony collection as you know nothing about football.

  800. FR Says:

    Let me guess “I have to be better” JW

  801. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    I had JW with 2 picks this game and there was the second. This kid can’t deal with pressure. He gets too antsy and doesn’t think well under pressure. That’s going to have to change for him to take that next step. He can do it. No better than Josh Freeman at this point.

  802. cmurda Says:

    Lavonte having a terrible game. JW is not yet good though. He created this mess with a miscommunication that should never have been thrown and missing D Jax wide open for another pick. We got owned by Keenum again. No surprise.

  803. Bucamania Says:

    Gholston is playing well this year

  804. BuccoDav Says:

    No, curds, JW has the highest football is anyone has ever seen. Thank God we gave a gunslinger instead of an intelligent game manager like Keenum!

  805. King C Says:

    Mike Evans just has to calm down. Vikings and Rhodes even shut down AntonioBrown

  806. ndog Says:

    Cant win with QB play like this. Just cant, love him or not you just cant win with plays like that.

  807. Jeffrey Yoemans Says:

    Winston is prooving what a joke he is. Getting out played by Keenum again.

  808. JAB83 Says:

    Bye bye ME wiston chemistry. Flake should of never went with the short Jackson.

    VJax we need YOU!!!

  809. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Bucamania good call and don’t forget Ryan Russell saw him give a few really good rushes .

  810. cmurda Says:

    Ryan Smith just gave up another TD during the commercial break.

  811. Jim Says:

    Wow…Evan’s was mad. Love the passion. He CARES about winning!

  812. mark2001 Says:

    King…I think it has to do with the officiating. I know it is hard for some of you to understand, and all you do is cut McCoy, Jameis, and such. But this game was wrapped up in a little package by the officiating. Frankly, I’ve rarely seen such a poorly officiated game in my sixty some years.

  813. NFLNut Says:

    Desean bothers me … great TD catch but now runs the wrong route which leads to a pick … and the first pick he didn’t even attempt to catch it or turn into the defender and interfere with him to stop the pick …. ah well … this team will be all right imho and YES, I 100% stand by the FACTUAL statement that Favre was nowhere near as good as Jameis at Jameis’ current age and that Jameis will be better when all is said and done … and yes I do believe Jameis is a team savior … he saved his high school, then FSU and now Tampa …

  814. BuccoDav Says:

    Does anyone here have any hope that our back up QB, much less our third stringer, would perform as well as Keenum has today if called upon?

  815. Jim Says:

    @ndog And you know what the call was and the route that was supposed to happen on the interception? No you don’t, so why comment about something that you have no idea what you are talking about.

  816. Bucs Says:

    Licht didn’t need to trade up for cook

    Shoulda picked him over Howard!!!

    What does Howard even do?

    He’s no part of this offense. Just a blocker. Yea good pick.

    He’s basically worthless in this offense. We had a blocking TE with stocker.

  817. unbelievable Says:

    GMC haters are such fools.

    He’s 1 of only 3 guys on defense that actually showed up to play today.

    Jameis needs to play better. Simple as that. Cmon young man!

  818. Rod Munch Says:

    Mark – This game officiating is pretty much on-par for how Bucs games always go – the Bucs don’t ever get a game where they get all the calls – or if it does happen it happens in preseason. I’d certainly say the Bucs-Rams NFC Championship game in 2000 was officiated worse.

  819. unbelievable Says:

    Y’all have to temper expectations with a rookie tight end. I’ve been saying this since we drafted him.

    Howard is about the long term, not 1 season.

    How many rookie tight ends have huge impact their first year?

  820. lurker Says:

    even marpet has a bad game

  821. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Nice to see TWINKLE-TOES

  822. BuccoDav Says:

    It isn’t Howard’s fault if he is not a focus of the passing game.

  823. mark2001 Says:

    Rod….I know what you are saying…but if we don’t have multiple guys coming out of this with concussions due to uncalled helmet to helmet targeting and unwarranted hits to our receivers, and knee injuries, we will be incredibly fortunate.

  824. SweetWilliam Says:

    enjoy garbage time everyone.

  825. BartButtplug Says:

    Bad game – check….Terrible uniforms – check.

  826. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Waow triple coverage throw

  827. Tbbucs3 Says:

    This offense that we’re running right now is our true offense. Spreading the ball around and letting Jamies sling it. Dirk is still running a scarred offense.

  828. NFLNut Says:

    There a lot of idiots on this forum, wow … to all the knowledgeable Bucs fans, don’t even reply to their asinine comments, it’s not worth it

  829. BuccoDav Says:

    Sacrificed Evans…

  830. mark2001 Says:

    Another helmet hit to the back of Evans head.

  831. VA BUC Says:

    No helmet to helmet

  832. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Mr. Magoo didn’t see the triple coverage.

  833. JAB83 Says:

    LOL…. #BucsStillSuck

  834. ATrain Says:

    Ok if three defenders are around Evans SOMEONE IS OPEN

  835. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Jameis needs glasses


  836. Dicko14 Says:

    I really want to believe in Jameis, I really do but, has he grown at all since last year?

  837. King C Says:

    X.Rhodes is a beast… He’s a big influence on these INTs

  838. cmurda Says:

    This game was over before this drive but JW throwing into triple coverage is exactly why we see Dirk running the ball too much. JW isn’t trustworthy with his decision. He throws 5 bullets right on time and then loses his mind and throws into triple coverage. It’s tough to watch this kid not improving.

  839. g720 Says:

    Jamies hasn’t changed a thing since college. Locking on a receiver and throwing to him with triple coverage. Gruden said it perfectly when he told him that will kill you in the pros.

  840. Rob Says:

    America’s turnover machine. 26 turnovers in 17 games. Human ATM

  841. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That was a hit on a defenseless wr. Go back and watch sendjo hit mike from behind right in the back of the head.

  842. SweetWilliam Says:

    Who elese besides the savior could we blame?

  843. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    I’m done. I think I’m going to go do something else anything but watch this.

  844. THETRUTH Says:

    4 defenders , 4

  845. Jim Says:

    Trade Alstott!!!!

  846. ndog Says:

    34 has taken 3 head shots at our receivers today and none were called. How was a elbow to the back of the head or a head to head hit on Brate not a penalty?

  847. VA BUC Says:

    Like i said 3 ints on the day lmao @ Americas QB @joe give it up jameis will be a bust what did this organization see in him straight turnover machine


    @ ATrain. You would think so.

  849. Mord Says:

    Well, you can’t blame that one on some thought that someone ran the wrong route


  850. NJBucsFan Says:

    Winston regressed this game and had more yards…just goes to show it’s not a one man sport. I’m sure we will get an article about how we don’t need Martin shortly after the game

  851. King C Says:

    In other news…Carolina is trash, so is New Orleans
    Matt Ryan is trying to give the game way too

  852. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    McCoy is warmed up now and ready to play.

  853. LongSeason Says:

    F Jameis. He isn’t allowed back in Tampa either. This team shouldn’t be allowed back. This is a team that isn’t prepared. Tell them to read their press clippings now.

  854. lurker Says:

    we can only lose 4 more games…because we will lose to the pats

  855. unbelievable Says:

    2nd time they’ve had a bit on defenseless receiver and not call it.

    Complete BS from refs today.

    But Jameis has to be better. Much better. I wanna believe.

  856. NFLNut Says:

    The Broncos “No Fly Zone” getting shredded by the Buffalo Bills … strange … teams have off days even with their starters … our defense was missing FIVE starters!

  857. Rfranke31 Says:

    Since when did they eliminate the helmet contact penalty for defenseless receivers? 34 has been ducking his helmet and headhunting the entire game. He did it to Brate on the TD, Humphries and now Evans. This guy better get fined by the league.

  858. mark2001 Says:

    Exactly ndog…. I guess these officials want to chloroform the game, and if one thing will do it, it will be those concussions and head shots that make it suffer the same fate that boxing has. These officials need to be fired immediately.

  859. Bucamania Says:

    Conte is awesome

  860. Bird Says:

    The bucs should pay keenum to be back up next year so we don’t have to worry

    They offered glennon 7

    He is better than glennon

  861. FR Says:

    ” I have to play better ” jw

  862. Bucamania Says:

    Get GMC off the field!

  863. LongSeason Says:

    We should have taken Mariota.

  864. lurker Says:

    we can only lose 4 more games, because we will lose to the pats

  865. g720 Says:

    This team needs to be totally embarrassed today so maybe it will wake them up for next week. Is this defense our team has played today?

  866. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    I see Winston play and I swear I’m watching Josh Freeman. I’m the biggest JW homer but goodness, he’s taken a huge step back. He told Koetter that he needs to yell more, maybe Koetter needs to start doing that.

  867. Zwak Says:

    We get it GMC your playing hurt! Thanks

  868. Jim Says:

    It might be more than 5 starters -(

  869. ndog Says:

    Cause I have eyes Jim! 3 picks in one game and at some point you have to stop making excuses. You put the ball in harms way and you get picks plain as that.

  870. BucEmUp Says:

    Yet another year, another season of our defense leaving Jameis out to dry. Can we please fire Mike Smith now. Worst hire for this new regime!!!!!

  871. Bucamania Says:

    Good lord

  872. Jim Says:

    Now David and Ward are down!

  873. JAB83 Says:

    Who cares… PBS had an awesome special on Vietnam and what our grandfathers and uncles did for us…

    Kneel to that!!!

  874. Bucamania Says:

    NO!!!!!!!!!! the cart

  875. unbelievable Says:

    LVD screaming

  876. passthebuc Says:

    Joe is correct in calling JW America’s QB.
    He throws to anyone on any team

  877. g720 Says:

    Why are the regulars still in this game Koetter?

  878. cmurda Says:

    It’s only 1 loss and Dirk and Mike Smith’s seats should be flaming hot if for no other reason then being complete retards and having our starters out there. There’s a good chance this is a season ender for Lavonte.

  879. FR Says:

    This is dumb second game of the season and we already hurting

  880. NFLNut Says:

    JAMEIS’ 3rd pick is exactly why I love him as a QB and absolutely believe he will go down as an all-time great!

    The pass was great and on the money and all but that’s not what I love most … what I love most is that he threw THAT pass at all. Believe me, there are a ton of NFL QBs (Dak and Mariota prime among them) that would probably never even consider throwing that pass in that situation … why … because the game is basically out of reach and it will likely hurt their “stats”.

    It was the same thing last year in Dallas … Jameis made sure his hail mary at the end of the first half was in play and catchable, as well as the last gasp throw in the 4th quarter … both happened to be picked … and he didn’t care as he doesn’t care at all about “stats”, he will simply do whatever it takes to try and win the game, stats be damned AND I LOVE IT!

    A game like this tells me way more about Jameis than any easy game like last week and I am happy to ride with Jameis for the next 15-20 years happily!

  881. Bird Says:

    No injuries to everyone injured

  882. Jim Says:

    How is firing Mike Smith going to heal the injuries?

  883. mark2001 Says:

    Dirk…pull the starters…it is a meat grinder out there….these officials will allow them to do anything and everything to our guys.

  884. ndog Says:

    This season is over! We dont have any players left on top of a GM who likes to draft bums. I am so sick of getting excited about each season only to get let down.

  885. JameisDungy Says:

    I say this as a major Jameis fan.

    He has to decide if he wants to be Peyton Manning or Bad Eli Manning.

    Some of these ints are ridiculous.

    Also here is where the Licht and Koetter have failed Jameis though. Play calling is abysmal.


    Licht did exactly what he did the year before. It was clear as day we needed WR help and Licht ignored it. It was clear as day we needed RB help and Licht AGAIN ignored it

    Jameis can’t carry an offense. Especially against a good defense. Thats true. However, we need better play calling and a good RB. Licht gets so many passes its crazy.

  886. BuccoDav Says:

    g720 Says:
    September 24th, 2017 at 3:54 pm
    Why are the regulars still in this game Koetter?

    Because if they weren’t, he would be criticized for giving up…

  887. Bucs Says:

    When you’re a weak team on defense you get beat up just like today. Injuries all over defense because they’re a weak team that plays scared

  888. Pit Says:

    What’s the excuse this time? NOT enough receivers?? THe coach? Let’s put a billboard up.

  889. BucEmUp Says:

    If this defense even played average today Bucs get a win. Mike Smith is as outdated and incompetent as a DC as Lovie Smith. What a waste of talent.

  890. mark2001 Says:

    Bucs…you are nothing but a troll. The officials have allowed the Vikes to have open season on our players. If you can’t see that, you are an idiot.

  891. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    JW = Turnover machine

    All injured players

    = SEASON OVER!!!!

  892. Mord Says:

    NFLnut, that was only a completion to the other team


  893. lurker Says:

    see you next year, ndog

  894. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    how about all these guys who kept saying we just had to have Howard instead of Cook. Rb is never a good idea to pick in the first round. Hahaha….Where are you now? Also, all the GMC haters, you do know the guy gets double teamed constantly. Now if GMC was so bad, why would anyone do that? Guy is out there leaving it all on the field. More then I can say for any cornerback.

  895. SweetWilliam Says:

    Leave everything as is. The
    Bucs team is almost perfect, right?

  896. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh well, the Bucs play the Giants next week at home and they should be able to win that game, which I thought they’d lose when doing my preseason picks, so if the Bucs get that they’re back to 2-1 and go into that huge Pats game on a high…

    Everything will be OK kiddos – this is just one of those games.

    Oh and the Bucs need to cut Ryan Smith, he’s the worst corner I’ve ever seen. Ever. Worst than Rod “The Toast” Jones from Bucs 80s fame. They need to cut Smith before they get to the airport and not let him on the team plane.

  897. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Hate to break it to you fellas, but we are getting awfully close to JWs ceiling. Third year “superstar” QBs are supposed to look off their receivers at least occasionally.

  898. NFLNut Says:

    Through 3 games CAM NEWTON is on pace to pass for 3,019 yards, 11 TDs and 21 picks … what happened to that dude … it reminds me of Penny Hardaway in basketball or something

  899. Bird Says:


    Are you dillusional?

    Defense didn’t play great but Jameis looked like a dotard
    He will not change. Good games and bad games. No consistency

  900. g720 Says:

    You won’t know how good a pick Howard was because the Bucs don’t know how to use him or never throw to him. Great having 2 good TE’s when Koetter doesn’t know what to do with them.

  901. unbelievable Says:

    JameisDungy Says:
    September 24th, 2017 at 3:55 pm
    I say this as a major Jameis fan.

    Jameis can’t carry an offense. Especially against a good defense. Thats true. However, we need better play calling and a good RB. Licht gets so many passes its crazy.


    Isn’t that a big problem itself though? #1 overall pick needs to put it together by year 3, and be able to play against good defenses.

    Jameis is 1-10 against top-10 defenses…

  902. Mark Says:

    I finally agree with Joe. Let’s cut Doug Martin. The running game is humming without him.

  903. mark2001 Says:

    You Cook suckers. This isn’t about Cook…he doesn’t even have a hundred yards rushing yet. I’m all for cutting Licht over the Reberto fiasco. But there are reasons Cook dropped….and he hasn’t even had one off season of free time with his buddies yet. So chill. OJ will be fine.

  904. lurker Says:

    drug martin is here and good running backs are easier to get then good tightends

  905. Architek Says:

    I am really concerned with Winston and these turnovers

  906. RayJameisStadium Says:

    We lost to the flu, Vikings and refs.

  907. Bucs Says:


    Are you stupid?

    Still blaming the refs? Must be a millennial always someone else fault right?

    3 picks is the refs fault right?

    Receivers open by 10 yards is the refs fault.

    You’re plain stupid. Yea we lost the game ALL because of the refs.

    My god what a moron.

  908. NFLNut Says:

    You sure we lose to the Patriots? They’re about to lose to the Texans in Foxborough … they’re not the 2016 Patriots.

  909. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Maybe the whole damn team has the Flu.

  910. BuccoDav Says:

    NFLNUT… You are an idiot if you truly think that.
    No QB in the NFL is thinking about their stats when they are running a play. They are, hopefully, thinking about what pass has the best chance of being completed. That is IF they aren’t locking in on a receiver from the sbap.

  911. mark2001 Says:

    Rod…I hope we can beat the Giants…but the injuries and possible concussions worry me.

  912. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    you guys blaming this on the refs aren’t quite getting it. Refs didn’t blow this for us. We’re terrible. Stop trying to make excuses for how lousy we are.

  913. BucEmUp Says:

    A career day for yet another qb against the bucs…..dont give me the injury excuse thats bad coaching. Jason Licht needs to pull the plug on Koetters best bud before it costs all three of them they’re jobs. Weskest link on the team = Mike Smith

  914. lurker Says:

    look at the other games…it is a weird week
