    Ayers is over 30 so naturally there is some decline but he was hurt and/or sick last game.

  2. Pistol Pete Says:

    If you can’t run you will not win….those stats on our rushing totals were astonishing. #horrible

  3. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Everyone knew Ayers was all bark and no bite, before the Bucs signed him. He talk loud as hell and do nothing on the field.

    Any chance of these being uploaded early Tuesdays and Thursdays in time for the morning commute?
    Yes and no. Sometimes it’s possible; sometimes it’s not. Last Thursday’s was up very early. Thursday is more likely to be early.–Joe

  5. Mike Johnson Says: hit that nail straight on its head there my man!! There were at least 2 very good DE’s left when we picked in the last draft. We went with a TE who..has yet to show us anything. Now, Just watch those DE’s the Giants bring in.
    Watch them..and watch them get sacks! Bucs had better be ready. I’m reading those NYC feeds and the Giants are going all out to get their 1st victory. They are sayin, stop our run and their Defense will deal with Jameis.

    Amazing how so many football fans don’t understand that some positions (like tight end) have a longer transition from college to pros.

    Howard was the right choice. There were 6 more rounds to draft a DE or RB.

    The mistake was ignoring one and waiting til the 5th on the other.

  7. C eh N eh D eh Says:

    I’m hoping the flu bug was rampant throughout the team with that performance..need a valid excuse…Ryan Smith belongs on a practice squad, not a starting CB…still no pass rush 🙁

  8. unbelievable Says:

    So Ira (or Joe), do you fault Koetter or Jameis for not throwing more balls to Howard?

    Or is it Howard’s fault?

    Maybe he should throw the ball to himself, smh…

  9. Bob Ross Says:

    The Bucs seemed listless, uninvolved. You can’t really tell from so far away, but that’s how it looked on 📺. Just a bad day, I hope.

    Ira, on the other hand, never has a bad day. I’m a longtime fan. Hi, old pal! Keep up the deep coverage! 🏈

    Jason Friggin Licht…..J-A-S-O-N LICHT!!!!!!!!!!

    We could have so easily of had this man –

    And guess what…..he stays on the field. Had twice the tackles Sunday as Tmaxcon’s favorite player.

  11. GhostofSchiano Says:


    MY BAD. I meant Shaq Lawson.

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    UNBELEIVABLE, Thats what you are there sir. I was playing Football for Tampa Catholic before you were ever thought of by your to be parents. The cheeleaders dressing room is next to..the lavatory facilities.

  13. Fartman Says:

    we are one week away from bucs draft talk… we suck again

  14. Brad Isherwood Says:

    Bucs need to Platoon QB like Navy.

    Bucs receivers are Monster…..throw high,…lead them. interceptions.
    Quick hitter pass, ….QB rolls outside the pocket.

    Bucs have done this before. …Jeff Garcia.
    Maybe later in the year. .Bucs can game deep ball threat.
    With Inuries and game clock manage….Maybe just get by on 4 field goals,
    Offence walks to 25 7 times on short hitter and check off run.

    Jameis can read the field as Jeff Garcia did.
    Jamies has 6 chamber loaded gun .

    Coaching staff have to get out of the way and …..and let the Field/Bucs….call the game from huddle.

  15. Bob Higginbotham Says:
