Buccaneers-Cardinals, Open Thread

October 15th, 2017

He’s back!

Comment all game long with intense and sometimes ludicrous Bucs fans. Great fun! More than 1,300 comments last game.

Keep it clean. And reserve the personal attacks for Cardinals players, not each other (Joe’s filters are tuned up extreme haters.)

Enjoy yourself and prepare for Joe’s award-winning postgame coverage, including Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways.

Go Bucs!

    This game is personal. Bucs win by three field goals!6\

  4. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    The word of the day is cohesion.

    If our incredibly talented offensive shows signs of cohesion, then these birds are gonna get roasted.

    Bucs win 37-17.

  5. holymoly13 Says:

    Cmon Dolphins

  7. Kobe Faker Says:


    If OJ Stocker doesnt catch more than 2 receptions, Kobe Faker will shriek naked around Abes Place 10 times

  8. Bucsalltheway Says:

    Anyone know a site that streams the bucs game?

  9. unbelievable Says:

    Josh McCain and asjackwagon hot screwed badly on that review a few minutes ago… one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen

  10. Bird Says:

    Yah Dolphins win

    Aaron Rodgers fractured collar bone in throwing shoulder. Bucs should win that now in cold lambeau

  11. BuccoDav Says:

    Nobody’s buying it, Kobe…

  12. Dave Says:

  13. Boise Buc Says:

    I’m still pissed about Arizona last year. Hoping they brought a bunch of attitude with them!

  14. unbelievable Says:

    Kobe your empty promises ain’t fooling anyone

  15. LakeLand Says:

    More dumb coaching…this time it’s coming from Atlanta. The Falcons up 17-0, then abandon the running game.

  16. LakeLand Says:

    AP always run tough against the Bucs.

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    Petersen will have 100 yards by the half

  18. Gobucs Says:

    Wow. The AP show already

  19. Gobucs Says:

    Good start defense. Sheesh.

  20. unbelievable Says:

  22. jugheadfla Says:

    swiss cheese

  23. unbelievable Says:

    Marching down the field.

  24. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

  25. Gobucs Says:

    My god. How fuc ing pathetic

  26. BuccoDav Says:

    Wow! I hope that’s out of our system.

  27. bucnut2 Says:

    We are going to get blown out

  28. Buc believer Says:


  29. Capt.Tim Says:

    The Gresham catch is what happens when you blitz linebackers

    Petersen TD

  30. LakeLand Says:

    So much for the “old” Adrian Peterson. He look 22 years old against the Bucs.

  31. Gobucs Says:

    Lol. And watch the offense go 3amd out.

  32. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Well, this won’t be the defense’s best day…lol. Oh brother

  33. Rayjay1122 Says:

    We were not interested in AP. LOL. Nice defense. Rediculous!!!

  34. unbelievable Says:

    well that’s now how you wanna start.

  35. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    Well that didn’t take long! So much for good rush D!

  36. Dubski Says:

    3 in out coming up….

  37. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Does Peterson have a 100 yards yet?

  38. Boise Buc Says:

    Well, I had imagined that starting a little differently.

  39. CautiousOptimism Says:

    All the AP trash talk in the offseason and leading up to this game and he just put it right in your aas, every single one of you.
    Will you stand up and admit it? Not one of you.

  40. Midnightstroker1 Says:

    Yeaaah same old effin bucs

  41. Saskbucs Says:

    Ugly…. ugly…ugly

  42. Easy Denman Says:

    Beckwith getting blown up in the middle

  43. Gobucs Says:

    What’s gonna be the excuse this week?

    Well they had to travel out west blah blah blah.

    This team is nowhere close to a playoff team.

  44. unbelievable Says:

    So many missed tackles and guys getting blocked out of the way. We looked small and overpowered on that drive. Better tighten up on D or it’s gonna be a long day.

  45. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Another blow out in the desert with last place in NFC South to boot.

  46. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This D is a joke. Lol they ran a wr screen because they know VH3 plays 12 yards off the ball! This problem should have been fixed weeks ago.

  47. Capt.Tim Says:

    What was the score last year?
    Man, I hope we can keep it that close!

    Palmer burned the Linebacker blitz.
    Now, he’ll kill us with Play action

  48. Sydney Says:


  49. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    This team just plain sucks don’t want to hear your bullspit anymore fuc@ off!

  50. bucnut2 Says:

    Arians made statement. They are determined to crush us.

  51. James Walker Says:

    Fire the whole team and shut down the organization!!!!! /sarcasm off

  52. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Looks like they brought the Lovie Smith defense today. I hope Mr. Magoo didn’t forget his glasses.

  53. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    Crybabies. One drive. Relax. Mike Smith should not be fired. Once the emotion dies down, which we will make happen, we will handle this. Relax!

  54. Steven007 Says:

    The Bucs doing what they do best, making an inferior team look Superior. For the love of God…

  55. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Our players on defense are so overrated. Justin Evans is simply not good

  56. Buc believer Says:

    The next defensive series Geraldine gets “hurt”

  57. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    And of course ASJ blowing up for the jets….

  58. bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s talk draft.

  59. unbelievable Says:

    lol it’s 1 touchdown. Calm down people.

    If they do that again on the next drive, then it’s time to be concerned.

  60. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Here comes a 3 an out.

  61. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    These guys beat us 40-7 last year, w/o Adrian Peterson.
    They have had quite a few injuries, but their 2 stud lineman are back, and the entire team is hyped because of the Peterson trade.
    Hope we don’t get blown out.

  62. bucnut2 Says:

    Nice throw

  63. Easy Denman Says:

    What’s up with arians shaking the line judges hand during the game??

  64. Steven007 Says:

    Let’s hope the Cardinals got all their juice out on that first drive. Relax, we got four quarters left.

  65. jugheadfla Says:

    and on cue, over throw by jameis

  66. LakeLand Says:

    Lovie defense was never this bad!

  67. Capt.Tim Says:

    More outta sync long bombs!
    Come on Koetter!

  68. Ronteco Says:

    What a bunch of paper champ chumps. They know he’s gonna tote the ball and still can’t stop him. Tackling is awful as usual.

  69. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Mr. Magoo misses wide open receiver on the first pass of the day. Shocker.

  70. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Breathe ladies

  71. Gobucs Says:

    Lmao. God they suck

  72. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    What a joke.

  73. jugheadfla Says:

    Winston is slower than Byron Leftwich

  74. Capt.Tim Says:

    Pressure on Jameis.
    Man, if only we could rush the passer!!

  75. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Let the blow out begin.

  76. LakeLand Says:

    Aaron Rodgers may be out for the season

  77. bucnut2 Says:

    you can’t tell me JW had no where to go with that. Hell throw it up to Evans

  78. Ronteco Says:

    Winston chokes again. 4000 yards don’t impress, how about moving the chains when needed.

  79. Gobucs Says:

    Well let’s all sit back and watch the AP show

  80. jugheadfla Says:

    initiate blow out sequence

  81. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Take some Xanax fellow fans. We never start fast. That being said, if we can’t stop AP then we are done. Hopefully Winston is OK.

  82. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Not it is time for the Larry Fitzgerald show.

  83. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go Jameis! Shake that rust off and start balling. I hope he’s not hurt.

  84. Capt.Tim Says:

    Oh boy.
    Meybe we get Fitzgerald now.

  85. JameisDungy Says:

    Licht…we really could have used Adrian Peterson those first 3 games.

    Koetter…why do you insist on going empty when he’s 3rd and 2.

    Why did we draft OJ Howard? I thought we were going 2 TE’s to set up play action.


  86. jugheadfla Says:

    what kind of chit zone was that?

  87. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Flucking joke

  88. LakeLand Says:

    The Cardinals receivers are like 7-11, they stay open.

  89. Capt.Tim Says:

    Yay Hargreaves
    Another fine job
    Twice in a row!

  90. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Don’t cover Larry Fitzgerald. Sound strategy

  91. Gobucs Says:

    Hargreaves is a bust

  92. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Hargreaves playing soft again. SMH.

  93. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Wish we had a real coaching staff

  94. Easy Denman Says:

    Lol this is embarrassing

  95. jugheadfla Says:

    VHIII is total chit

  96. BucsFan90 Says:

    Fire Jason Licht

  97. BuccoDav Says:

    Bucks D = fountain of youth for opposing offensive players.

  98. Capt.Tim Says:

    3 great plays by Hargreaves!!

  99. bucnut2 Says:

    We officially suck

  100. Bucs1856 Says:

    And the blowout begins.

  101. Gobucs Says:

    Lmao. I’m sooo glad I started Palmer in my fantasy league.

    I knew that was the right call

  102. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Fire these flucking clowns. This is a flucking joke.

  103. DislocatedBucsFan Says:


  104. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    We. Suck. SO. BAD!

  105. Easy Denman Says:

    Beckwith needs to play outside, that’s embarrassing

  106. Buc believer Says:

    Fire the ENTIRE damn team!!!!

  107. JAB83 Says:


    Where you at JW….. (Just Win)

  108. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This defense is invisible. I’m not sure I have ever seen worse. Schiano schools Smith.

  109. Gobucs Says:

    @dr feel good?

    You were saying?

    Relax right?

    Lol stupid idiot

  110. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Outplayed, out-coached, out hustled. It it ground hogs day?

  111. jugheadfla Says:

    bets on if we go three and out this next series?

  112. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Get Hargreaves off the field, he has become nearly a total liability.
    He failed to contain Peterson, and now look

  113. LakeLand Says:

    The Saints are feeling good. They win big today, and they are looking good for trading AP to the Cardinals.

  114. unbelievable Says:

    At least 3 missed tackles by Hargreaves now.

    This is not looking good.

  115. SteveK Says:

    Heargraves is trash!

    Let’s go Jameis, it’s on 3 to be sharp.

  116. ClodHopper Says:


  117. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It’s not Licht. We have the talent, just horrible coaching.

  118. BucEmUp Says:

    Good old zone defense comes through to embarrasses us again. Jameis gets hung out to dry yet again

  119. denjoe Says:


  120. Big Stinky Says:

    What a joke this team is

  121. dirkdiggler Says:

    Season over. Blow it up. Draft QB early. Fire Koetter or force him to get an OC. Defense is in shambles.

  122. EA Says:

    2 road games this season bucs haven’t been ready to play, Hargreaves has been garbage in those games.

  123. Capt.Tim Says:

    And no pass rush.
    They actually tripled teamed McCoy on that touchdown- and not one of our other Linemen could get close to Palmer!!

    Its sickening

  124. Andrew Says:

    Aaaaand that’s how you lose the game in the first quarter. Passing on 3rd and 2 and horrible defense. GO bucs!

  125. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    GARBAGE….. hargreaves only strength is tackiing now thats gone…. licht has not built anything, this team is so far away its crazy, i thought 8-8 but might be 7-9

  126. bucnut2 Says:

    Get ready. here comes bad Winston

  127. mark2001 Says:

    We have to have this game….

  128. University of Seffner Says:

    I think Jameis is okay. The defense is laying an egg right now.

  129. Ronteco Says:

    Defense is a joke. Time to look at the draft folks. These guys have no clue how to tackle. Licht jacked this defense up. Hargraves is a bust and our dline is an absolute cluster F.

  130. AreYouKidding? Says:

    Bucs defense has been terrible this year, despite what the owners of this site write. Time for a new D coordinator?

  131. Gobucs Says:


    If it’s on jameis to win this then you better not get your hopes up

  132. Sydney Says:

    Um…all you “Calm Down it’s just one drive” people were saying??




  133. BucEmUp Says:

    I agree I think VH3 has been living the high life his play has dropped off deep!!!

  134. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    and Dawson is 2 for 2 in extra points…lol. Not sure Patrick Murray will get a chance today.

  135. bucnut2 Says:

    And where are all of the 11-5 crowd now?

  136. dirkdiggler Says:

    told yall this team is poorly coached. when u 5 yard out to 11 ur a idiot coach.

  137. NJBucsFan Says:

    And here we go…this team was down 21-0 in Q1 last week to Eagles. Now we risk the same thing

  138. Q Says:

    Where is all the over paid over rated bucs players at? Where is baker where is the best defensive lineman in the NFL at? Joe where is your man McCoy at???? Lmfao …this is too damn funny

  139. EA Says:

    I don’t know about 3 and out but we definitely don’t score.

  140. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Well, this drive is the game or close to it.

  141. LakeLand Says:

    The Bucs O-Line and D-Line are getting pushed around at the LOS.

  142. unbelievable Says:

    You right about that EA.

    5 of the next 7 on the road too, right?

  143. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Flashes of Minnesota 3 weeks ago

  144. JameisDungy Says:

    3rd and 2….would have been nice to have Adrian Peterson.

  145. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Too much talent on this team to suck this bad. The Cards sure brought their big mother fing sticks! Again. Like last year, all over again.

  146. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Bench hargreaves

  147. Boise Buc Says:

    At this point, I’d like to see if we can make a field goal.

  148. JourneyRVrental Says:

    Hargreaves is GARBAGE and so is our D-line. I literally can’t believe what I’m seeing! I’m taking an RV and leaving town…

  149. mark2001 Says:

    Now time to prove we have “America’s QB”.

  150. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Looks like another “wait until next year”
    That chit has gotten old

  151. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Our defense looks like crap. And to think, they had 10 days to get ready for this.

  152. BuccoDav Says:

    “Jameis gets hung out to dry”?
    Did you watch his response to the Cards first series?

  153. ChanEpic Says:

    Welp, this isn’t the best of looks is it? Tampa cannot stop this team at all. They have men, we have boys. And that’s just the coaching staff… This is so demoralizing. Let’s hope they get it together, and yeah VHIII um not so good.

  154. GoBucsGo Says:

    Remember the Viking Game?


  155. Gobucs Says:


    Yea right.
    More like 5-11

  156. BucfaninMi Says:


  157. Steven007 Says:

    We are truly the worst team at taking advantage of anything. The Dolphins upset the Falcons. And we are facing a pretty average Cardinals team with a 32 year old running back and a sixty-year-old quarterback. End result? We look slow and old and of course they look revitalized and Young. I would love to figure out why this happens to the Bucs time and time again.

  158. Bucn enough Says:

    Did any of you really expect anything different?
    Where was the evidence that said this team was ready to compete?

    The Joe’s have been pimping this teams crap since preseason..with zero evidence that things would change..stop drinking the juice…

  159. THETRUTH Says:

    Bucs cure to all weakness for teams, without fail

  160. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bring in Jim Shorts from Philadelphia. He can run a defense.

  161. dirkdiggler Says:

    told yall this team was done. NFL sucks. Wait 8 months and one moth in the season is toast for half the league. no fun being an NFL fan anymore.

  162. Mediocreatbest Says:

    Pathetic start to game, team isn’t capable of overcoming a 14 pt deficit, game has the making of another route. Not only the worst team in the division, they are the worst team in the state, as well.

  163. Ed Says:

    Bad body language by Bucs. No aggression

  164. NJBucsFan Says:

    @ Goat. I really hope that was autocorrected haha

  165. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Licht has no clue he gets lucky w a kwon and called a genious but gets a kicker and forgets the secondary and DL are straight up garbage

  166. Gobucs Says:


    Hey stupid McCoy was triple teamed on the TD

    What do you want? Beat a triple team?

    You are an idiot

  167. Maxx Says:

    Can Hargreaves get more exposed as a soft tackler? Thank goodness for Brate

  168. Buddy Says:

    How’s the “winning” coach Koetter doing?? Bahahaha. Name change coming soon Joe????

  169. Capt.Tim Says:

    that was a great throw by Jameis

  170. Maxx Says:

    Why does the Cards Dline look like the Steel Curtain for chrissakes?

  171. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Basic b!tch offense. AZ is reading Koetter like a flucking book

  172. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Teams know they can beat us by simply being more physical. That is the last thing you want as your biggest weakness is lack of toughness. Sorry but this team does not play tough.

  173. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Under center 1st down runs, under center 2d downs runs.

    Can you make things harder on Jameis, Dirk?

  174. Mo_Downs Says:

    Clearly, “DOUBTFUL” on the injury report means…,,zzzzzzz

  175. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Mr. Magoo escapes another embarrassing pick.

  176. Capt.Tim Says:

    Another forced throw to Jackson

  177. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol. No I just spelled it wrong.

  178. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Enough 3rd and Longs! This is high school play calling.

  179. dirkdiggler Says:

    koetter so faking stupid run twice on the 50 so dumb

  180. EA Says:

    Has anybody here seen this movie before the last decade ?

  181. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    jameis supporter but boy did he misread that cover 2

  182. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Our whole team is Brain Anger….,

  183. MIKE Says:


  184. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Winston’s throws are typically too late in the route. Accuracy questionable as well

  185. DoNUTS Says:

    Great punt by Anger

  186. Maxx Says:

    Can we at least get a quick slant to DJax every so often????

  187. Andrew Says:

    is Doug Martin seriously already looking like a disappointment again? It’s been, what one or two games?

  188. bucnut2 Says:

    really bad under throw to Jackson

  189. BucsFan90 Says:

    Martin killed that drive

  190. EA Says:

    So much hype at the beginning of the year, what is this garbage

  191. LakeLand Says:

    Here comes more of the AP show.

  192. Rojas Says:

    This playcalling is literally embarrassing. It’s so predictable on what plays we are going to run.

  193. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Koetter needs to give up play calling and fire Mike Smith. We should NEVER EVER hire another coach with the last name of Smith. Stubborn flucks

  194. denjoe Says:

    Yay a screen to sims wtf

  195. Easy Denman Says:

    Lol 3rd and Long we do a swing pass. Not shocked

  196. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    anyone for a 95-yard drive?

  197. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Why punt? That only makes sense when you have a defense.

  198. Tbbucs3 Says:

    We suck againast the Cardnals because they are way more physical than us.

  199. Easy Denman Says:

    Martin has had ZERO holes to run thru.

  200. ChanEpic Says:

    @Steve007 – Maddening isn’t it? No matter the personnel, the coaching staff, the game venue they play down to every situation. Everything seems harder for the Bucs than it does for other teams. Game in game out.

  201. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Mariotta is hurt AGAIN. I HAVE A CAPS LOCK BUTTON TOO!!!!!!!!!!!

  202. Gobucs Says:


    Are you really blaming Martin?

    He barely can get to the LOS because the online is getting blown up.

    You’re an idiot. Stupid

  203. denjoe Says:

    I can’t watch this defense again so soon.

  204. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Licht being cute w the poor FA moves and sh*tty crafty drafting have the bucs looking like this, drew brees will toss 5 tds, sorry scam newton may even look good…. the flippin gators are a dumpster fire run poorly and now sundays ruined AGAIN for too long

  205. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Winston is inconsistent but Koetter is consistent. Consistent poor play caller.

  206. Warren Sapp Says:

    I don’t care what anybody says Jameis is not a franchise Qb!!

  207. Bucs1856 Says:

    On the upside JW at the pace he is on he will throw for 4000 yards this year too. Excited!!!

  208. Quattrolou Says:

    John Griden did say he wanted to coach again, right?

  209. Maxx Says:

    At Mike: spellcheck a little bit and Caps Lock…reall?

  210. LakeLand Says:

    The Bucs D-Line is HORRIBLE

  211. Destinjohnny Says:

    What they need to do is draft d lineman

  212. Gobucs Says:

    You idiots blaming Martin shouldn’t be aloud to breathe

  213. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    New name
    Blowout Bucs

  214. mark2001 Says:

    Some of you were giving me trash when I said NO and Carolina could finish above us..saying that there was no way would couldn’t finish below them. I said that it wasn’t that big a difference. That being said, I still hope you are right, though I’m not so sure.

  215. Matts17 Says:

    Pathetic effort. Off season hype is just that. Same ol’ Bucs.

  216. EA Says:

    Hargreaves is painful to watch, please bench him.

  217. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    MIKE- don’t take this the wrong way but you should consider repeating 4th grade.

  218. ChanEpic Says:

    Does anyone really think the Bucs will mount a comeback?
    This will end up being really close in the 4th quarter and the Bucs will find a way to lose it. We’ve seen this show before.

  219. BuccoDav Says:

    Maxx Says:
    October 15th, 2017 at 4:38 pm
    At Mike: spellcheck a little bit and Caps Lock…reall?

    Ironic, much?

  220. bucnut2 Says:

    We should start thinking what 2-5 looks like. We likely won’t beat Bills or Panthers. Reality is this teams NOT horrible, but not that good.

  221. Ndog Says:

    This unacceptable period!

  222. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Hey Koetter, how about some seam passes or slants. We do not use the talent that we have properly. That is on the coaches.

  223. EA Says:

    It’s not on Martin, our trenches are being dominated

  224. unbelievable Says:

    6 years now without a consistent pass rush??

  225. NJBucsFan Says:

    Good thing we paid all that money to Mike Smith. Making an old a$$ AP look like its 2008 again

  226. jugheadfla Says:

    that Bucs fever commercial makes me sick to my stomach

  227. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    destin johnny right on… licht has ignored the defenseive and offensive fronts when he had sure fire hits out there to get…. again Philly built their team up from doo doo to the best team in the NFC and we have this crsp

  228. Sydney Says:

    31-10 final.

    Loss at Bills next week…

    Loss to Panthers at home after that….

    Loss at Saints AGAIN after that….

    Stop me when you find a win?

  229. bucnut2 Says:

    Chan pack, sorry, it WONT be close in the 4th quarter. They should fire up the plane now

  230. Maxx Says:

    Yep, poor Martin is getting hit before he even hits the line. That is gonna kill us today because with no run game, Jameis will force his throws, etc
    Same old same old…

  231. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    The Bucs need the fans to believe in them despite a bad start!! The Pats won after falling behind 14-0. The Niners fell behind 17-0 and came down to the final seconds. The Fins were down 17-0 at Atlanta and won!! If you people throw in the towel this fast, I pray we are never in a foxhole together. GO BUCS!!

  232. unbelievable Says:

    Definitely not on Martin. He’s been hit in the backfield on every run play except 2 of them. O-line Looks just like last year to be honest.

  233. Bighck61 Says:

    The defense is giving up before our eyes !

  234. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Koetter needs to give up play callings duties. Calls plays based of fear of turnovers. Offense plays scared defense plays passive.

  235. BuccoDav Says:

    Simple, stupid…

  236. LakeLand Says:

    Beasting Ayers….woof, woof, woof lol

  237. jugheadfla Says:

    Palmer at home getting a happy ending massage when he finds out he is getting Peterson

  238. UKBucfan Says:

    This has a familiar feel to last seasons game. We cannot keep starting so slow and have our D so far off the action both near the QB and receivers
    Winston to D-Jax just is not working can we not keep trying the deep pass

  239. LakeLand Says:

    7 Eleven…all day long

  240. ChanEpic Says:

    BucNut2 – Ehh i don’t know. The cards will relax a bit, JW will throw a couple TDs while in 2 min offense, and Palmer will probably throw a pick too. It’ll be a 10 point game in the 4th and the Bucs will come up short. And for my next trick…Psychic Spoon bending…

  241. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ayers was definitely not offsides. I just rewatched the play. Fluck this

  242. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Oh look, Robert Ayers actions continue to speak louder than his many words

  243. Capt.Tim Says:

    Helping out the cards

  244. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    The Bucs lose this one and they most likely need to finish 9-2 for playoffs.

  245. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Would you look at that. Connor Barth with the game winning field goal. Licht dug a hole on ground that didn’t need to be touched

  246. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Blow out lol

  247. jugheadfla Says:

    PHUCK THIS TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  248. NJBucsFan Says:

    @DR Feelgood. The world doesn’t run on unicorn farts and fairy dust. This team does not produce on the road and gets too hyped for primetime games. The coaching staff fails to take hold of the team and put them in the place. This is evident by the fact Smith says the cushion VGIII is on him. The coaches aren’t leading or designing a winning formula. My positive thoughts aren’t going to change that.

  249. andrew Says:

    This is nauseating. WTF????

  250. Quattrolou Says:

    This is a joke, right? They can’t be this bad.

  251. Maxx Says:

    Wow, my wife already is tired of me yelling at the TV because Palmer looks like a HOFer

  252. bucnut2 Says:

    BLOW out!!!

  253. BucEmUp Says:

    This defense is trash. Jameis is being hung out to dry. Kiss th playoffs goodbye with this defense. They will score on every possession until the third quarter and they take the foot off the gas. This is pathetic. My 9 year old daughter could coach a better defense than this. here it comes folks….21-0 in a matter of minutes

  254. Capt.Tim Says:


    2 times in a row again

  255. ChanEpic Says:

    Oi Vey!

  256. mark2001 Says:

    Mr. E….what I was trying to say on another thread… this game is a critically important game…. we need this game. It doesn’t get any easier after this.

  257. LongSeason Says:

    Honestly, you want my opinion? Last year was as good as it will ever get. These assholes look like they are guilty of theft. They don’t start playing until near the end of the game every week. This includes Jameis ‘I fake being a leader’ Winston. Yeah, Mike Smith need not make the trip back to Tampa. We are chumps for watching anyways. Turning off TV now and doing something prroductive. F the Bucs. F rapist Jameis Winston.

  258. Gobucs Says:

    Lol I knew starting Palmer was the right move against this sorry as s team

  259. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I got $200 towards the fire Mike Smith /Koetter billboard

  260. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Well, that was fast. Guess we can all get back to our real lives a little sooner

  261. Dave Says:

    This team sucks!

  262. LakeLand Says:

    Old Men beat Bucs

  263. Bighck61 Says:

    21 zip bye bye yucks !

  264. denjoe Says:

    Same old bucs.


    They are gonna fkn ROAST us!!!!!!!!!!!

  266. AreYouKidding? Says:

    Game and season… Over.

  267. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    WE *^%#<€£+ SUCK

  268. ClodHopper Says:

    I wish we had a team good enough to have an opportunity to miss a field goal!!

  269. Swanee Says:

    As I have said before, the Buccaneers do not have the superstars on this team to win enough football games to make it to the playoffs. It’s 80 percent talent and 20 percent coaching. This teams win-loss record is s direct reflection of the scouting department. You must have the right people in these positions that assess talent correctly. That Bucs have struggled profoundly in this area for the past 15 years. Tony Dungy was the best we have ever had in the 40 year history of this team in assessing NFL level talent . Ultimately the GM will be responsible for a 2017 season of 7-9 or 8-8.

  270. Matts17 Says:

    FU Bucs. I hope you lose by 50. Bunch of posers.

  271. EA Says:

    Did someone say our defense is nasty ? Muahahaha

  272. UKBucfan Says:

    Why did I book a day off work for this pathetic show?
    Fitzgerald had no coverage at all there.. gonna be a long night

  273. Ed Says:

    The wheels are rolling off fast.

  274. mark2001 Says:

    When do we start playing? Maybe we thought we were playing Sunday night?

  275. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    JOKE blowout in desert back to back awesome

  276. Wesley Says:

    Holy crap we suck!!

  277. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    The entire coaching staff needs to be fired. Immediately.

  278. daveman Says:

    4th game out of 5 Jaboo is the lesser QB on the field. Carson is showing what an accurate passer looks like. I’m sure when Winston racks up 300 yards in second half garbage time his defenders will come out.

  279. Capt.Tim Says:


    2 times in a row again!
    Glad they put him on Fitzgerald!

  280. SteveK Says:

    This is getting out of hand.

  281. Rojas Says:

    I’ll put in another $200 for the billboard.

  282. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bucs may as well not even come out in the second half. They’re getting owned.

  283. denjoe Says:

    God help us!!!!!!!!!!!

  284. NFLNut Says:

    Can we trade coaching staffs with the Cardinals …

  285. Easy Denman Says:

    LOL what a joke. Piss poor communication

  286. Bighck61 Says:

    How many days did they have to prepare for this game ?

  287. Quattrolou Says:

    All Jameis talk. Let’s start seeing some action. The strength of this team is supposed to be the offense not the defense. Let’s start putting words into actions.
    Also, I want Mike Smith out of the box and on the field.

  288. ChanEpic Says:

    Bucs are, what is the saying again? Oh yeah, GIVING UP THE BOOTY on every. Single. Play.

  289. Buc believer Says:

    The ENTIRE fing coaching staff need to be FIRED right now!!!

  290. MarTar Says:

    We should have drafted Dalvin Cook

  291. bucster Says:

    Someone tell the defense it is during the anthem they are supposed to take a knee, not during the game.

  292. Dirty Bucs Says:

    New year, same Bucs. I’m sick of it

  293. BuccoDav Says:

    BucEmUp Says:
    October 15th, 2017 at 4:45 pm
    This defense is trash. Jameis is being hung out to dry.

    It’s simple. Jameis needs to be the leader we were all promised and match the 60 year old Palmer touchdown for touchdown.

  294. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    8-8 season

  295. Easy Denman Says:


    You are an idiot

  296. Maxx Says:

    Ready to watch Chiefs game…we look like we are playing with 8 players on defense

  297. Chris Says:

    You wait all year for this??? Hard knocks trash talking hype and this defense just sucks.

  298. NFLNut Says:

    Knowing Jameis, he’s going to try and gunsling them back into the game and might wind up with 3 or more picks … but the defense is 100% to blame

  299. BucEmUp Says:

    Don’t turn that channel folks!!!!!!!!

    Mike SMiths defense is about to set an NFL RECORD TODAY!!!!!






    ITS A BUCS LIFE!!!!!


  300. JohnBoy Says:

    I’ve never seen NFL receivers this open. It’s like Alabama v Vandy.

  301. Frank Says:

    I give up… thanks for the one championship ’02 Bucs. This team sucks!

  302. JAB83 Says:

    JW sighting (Jack Wagons)

  303. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    I love all the complaining about the coaching. Has it ever occurred to you that the talent level on this team is deeply overrated. Who has had the job of acquiring the talent to fill this roster over the last 4+ years?

  304. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    On National TV

  305. unbelievable Says:

    Robert McClain blew it on 3 plays in a row after mr dumba$$yeasting got a nice penalty for us.

    Fair to say this game is over. Another curb stomping in the desert.

    O-line and D-line both getting completely owned by the Cardinals.

  306. ChanEpic Says:

    @Bucster – LOL, brilliant.

  307. CJ Says:

    Game over. This team absolutely sucks in every phase of the game… Disjointed on offense, soft and lazy on defense and can’t kick their way out of a wet paper bag…

  308. Sydney Says:

    Hey, DR FEELGOOD are you getting high on your own supply? =)





  309. Allen Says:

    This is all somehow Jamies’ fault I’m sure. Oh yeah, and Martins’ too.

  310. James buc Says:

    Tf is going on with our secondary there is a hole every play like why are we playing only zone

  311. mark2001 Says:

    So far A kicking…. you would think we didn’t need this game, wouldn’t you?

  312. Maxx Says:

    Great line

  313. jugheadfla Says:

    Koetter/Smith have to go, the team is clearly not buying into their crap

  314. Jeagan1999 Says:

    I’m done! There are better and more exciting things I could be doing with my Sunday afternoon! Like re-arranging my sock drawer, or defragmentating my hard drive.

    I’m tired of this crap.

  315. Jameis-Kucherov2020 Says:

    Wow, I’ve never seen a team that makes it as hard to be a fan. At least the bolts are good this year

  316. NFLNut Says:


    However … even if we lose 70-0 … as long as JW doesn’t get injured we will have had a better day than the Packers …


  317. FR Says:

    This is funny all these weapons, yea keep believing in Winston I know Djax is like damn why I come here.

  318. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Here comes Mr. Magoo’s garbage time stat padding. I think McCoy just got off the team bus and is ready to play.

  319. BucEmUp Says:

    21-0 after 18 minutes and Mike Smith will never get an ounce of blame for this….


  320. Big Stinky Says:

    Wow! It’s over before halftime

  321. THETRUTH Says:

    I can Qb and just throw at VH3 every time. Easy pickings

    Palmer is garbage yet looks like all pro everytine against us

  322. Steven007 Says:

    Unless the impossible happens this is just going to be one of those games and weeks. The Falcons lose, as someone mentioned Barth had a game-winning field goal, even freaking Bobby Rainey returned a kickoff for a touchdown! The current Bucs? They look like a bunch of turd burglars.

  323. Matt B Says:

    I can’t put into words how embarrassing this is. I’m so disgusted. Incapable of coaching adjustments and guys playing with zero heart or pride. Also, stop punting the ball on fourth and short on the opponent’s side of the field when your defense can’t stop a JUCO team.

  324. Bighck61 Says:

    Well back to watching the good old boys turn left

  325. jugheadfla Says:

    and they can take Winston with them! he is garbage

  326. Chucklehead Says:

    Im done with this $hit. Cant score, cant hit an open reciever, cant cover, and the other team cant miss when playing the Bucs. NFLs laughing stock once again only this time we have an entire off season of hype to make us look even worse. Bunch of suckers

  327. LakeLand Says:

    Deja Vu

  328. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Those wanting Koetter gone are total idiots.

  329. unbelievable Says:

    Lol bucster!

  330. denjoe Says:

    I so tired of this embarrassing crap!

  331. mark2001 Says:

    The curse of hard knocks….seems the guys actually believe all the hype.

  332. NFLNut Says:


    In other news, Matt Ryan is back to pre-2016 Matt Ryan … on pace for 19 TDs and 19 picks … and the Falcons should be 1-4 and look pretty bad with losses at home to the Bills and Phins and near losses to the Bears/Lions … yuck

    As for the Bucs … our defense SUCKS … but it will all come down to division games …


  333. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I can’t believe that Koetter and bajakian have ruined Winston this much.

  334. 401Buc Says:

    Once again time to look forward to the draft. Draft all Defense next year!! Fire everyone!!

  335. VA BUC Says:

    Like i said at the beginning of the season this team will go 6-10 finish last in division this team looked sooooo bad in pre-season jameis is far from ready how can you all not see it even @joe is blind to it maybe next yr and thats a huge MAYBE team is suspect

  336. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    dr feelgood … even stevie wonder could see this team was not built to be a playoff team all the stick carrier screaming and acting tough is motos operundi when you have a weak hand bucs lost 40-7 last year? might repeat that

  337. NJBucsFan Says:

    How many incomplete passes in a row?

  338. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    run JAMEIS

  339. andrew Says:

    Time to play Overwatch…..

  340. D-Rome Says:

    Earlier this week I was laughed at for suggesting they would be major changes if the Bucs don’t win 10 games this season. Does this team as it’s constructed look like a playoff team to you? There are no more excuses anymore this is the fifth game. They are currently the worst team in the division. Do you guys still think the status quo is going to be okay at the end of the season? You’d better believe either Dirk koetter or Jason Licht is going to get fired if the Bucs end up 9-7 or worse. It’s not going to be a single staffer or a scout.

  341. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Winston you suck you at the real cancer

  342. jugheadfla Says:

    so glad I just wasted this 52 minutes of my sunday………

  343. NFLNut Says:

    I like Koetter … but you better believe I’d swap him for Arians who I think could be the 2nd best coach in the NFL!

  344. Architek Says:


  345. bucnut2 Says:

    JW looks great

  346. Bird Says:

    They have already quit

    What a joke

  347. Rojas Says:

    Let’s blame Jameis on Brates drop now..

  348. Easy Denman Says:

    Leave Licht and Koetter in Arizona

  349. ARGH_M8E Says:


  350. Wesley Says:

    I’m done, go bolts!

  351. BoJim Says:

    Just tuned in. I guess the Bucs are saving it for the 4th quarter?

  352. Zhills Says:

    What a waste of my time

  353. LakeLand Says:

    I predicted 7-9 for the Bucs. By the looks of their performance today, they go 5-11.

  354. Dirty Bucs Says:

    I’m tired of being let down by this team. Our offense is completely inept, and our Defense is playing their worst game of the year so far.

  355. Capt.Tim Says:

    Might as well celebrate Lynch.
    We’re only down by 21 points

  356. Rayjay1122 Says:

    And that is exactly why I would have gone for it on 4th down. This team is an embarrassment to Tampa. This team sucks. Sorry but it is true. I like Winston a lot but the lack of execution is inexcusable.

    So tired of this year in and year out. Same old Bucs. Gonna have to get out the paper back again.

  357. SteveK Says:

    Another three and out. Brate can’t hold on again.

  358. ChanEpic Says:

    I’m convinced, Free Agent DL men come here to get paid and nothing else. EVERY FREE AGENT DL WE SIGN SUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKSSSSS. #StealingGlazer$

  359. JameisDungy Says:


  360. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  361. Zhills Says:

    At least Steelers and chiefs on other network

  362. mark2001 Says:

    Tim…when do they start putting in the backups?

  363. NJBucsFan Says:

    What happens first. Palmer throws an incompletion it Winston completes one?

  364. NFLNut Says:

    D-Rome … we could be the best team in the division … I need to see us play division opponents first … none of the teams impress me

  365. NJBucsFan Says:


  366. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    I wonder if we can just forfeit?

  367. JimmyJack Says:

    this team is not prepared well. both coordinators are not NFL caliber. well never win with these two.

  368. bucnut2 Says:

    WE need to draft ALL defense next year, except for RB. Need to turn Winston into a game manager. Hand off with little to no decision making

  369. CJ Says:

    I’ve never seen a team so offensively talented at the skill positions be so awful… It’s like like they take the field listening to the hype and think things will just happen… No fight in this team offensively, defensively it’s just pathetic.

  370. Pelbuc Says:

    What a sorry ass excuse for a team! Lots of coaches and players stealing paychecks! All this supposed talent and they’re not even competitive. Firing Litch would be a start and DC Smith as well.

  371. ChanEpic Says:

    NFLNut – The Panthers are going to stomp a mud hole in these Bucs. Book it!

  372. Bucs1856 Says:


  373. Destinjohnny Says:

    We have 8-8 talent
    When you blow 2nd round pic after 2nd round pick…
    Then you don’t draft any d lineman in the best lineman draft in 20 years…
    You won’t be great

  374. Buc Lives Matter! Says:

    JW3 – can only get an accurate pass to a slow white TE. Overthrows everyone else. Garbage week in week out. DEF – soft as puppy chow. Shame on all of us for buying into the hype for another season. Looking forward to drafting a new kicker with the #1 overall pick in the draft though.

  375. denjoe Says:

    Atlanta and carolina will crush us

  376. Rayjay1122 Says:

    ME 13 has been invisible too. He must still be taking a knee.

  377. SteveK Says:

    Nfl nut,

    Matt Ryan sucking has nothing to do with excusing Jameis for sucking.

  378. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Licht has no clue… build a defense and win a championship, not draft a kicker to a 5-11 team defense defense…look at KC, philly houston, teams built for the road and bad weather

  379. EA Says:

    Optimism went down the drain last week against NE, I don’t know what Koetter is gonna mumble in the presser, the guy is no head coach material. I don’t see any winnable games the rest of the year.
    Very frustrating being a bucs fan.

  380. Bucs1856 Says:


  381. Easy Denman Says:

    LOL VHIII is trash

  382. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    Looks like we should have stayed on the plane SMH…I’m in the car this is terrible

  383. D-Rome Says:

    Oh and look at that….Connor Barth won a game with his leg.

  384. jugheadfla Says:


  385. BucsFan90 Says:

    Koetter is pure garbage, he would be jobless right now if not for Winston

  386. Andrew Says:

    Hargraves is incredibly bad.

  387. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m done, Fluck this team.

  388. Ndog Says:

    In my entire life I have never turned off a Bucs game but I am not sure I can keep watching this.

  389. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    11-11 no one near him

  390. Rojas Says:

    Why is VH3 on the field ? Jesus.

  391. ChanEpic Says:

    Somebody Cover Fitz PLEASE!!!!!

  392. JimmyJack Says:

    we dont even cover the endzone. I’ve never saw that before

  393. Ed Says:

    Palmer 11-11 how does that happen oh 12-12 this game is at too one sided Buc fans we’ve been fooled again

  394. EA Says:

    Why haven’t they benched Hargreaves yet

  395. AceofAerospace Says:

    I’m sorry. I’ve tried. But I’m just not sold on Winston. I expected so much more from the overall number 1 pick in his third season. I just don’t see it.

  396. Todd McCumber Says:

    Let’s not cover anyone

  397. jugheadfla Says:

    and another missed tackle

  398. WaitTilNextYear Says:

    I’d trade for a real quarterback

  399. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This is what happens when you fire one of the greatest coaches ever in Jon Gruden. You get a decade of being a joke.

  400. Quattrolou Says:

    @buccaneer Bonzai…. it may sounds crazy, and we are good at wanting new coaches. Nothing seems to work out for us. This offense is NOT progressing at all. It has gone backwards ten fold with more options. Defense is terrible has been for years. If it’s not the coaching then what is it? Gm? Players? Weren you not hyped about the season? Who has let you down? For me it’s the coaching.

  401. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    If you don’t cover Larry Fitzgerald it’s proving tough to prevent him from catching passes. Just an observation

  402. LakeLand Says:

    I wonder what type of Cologne Carson Palmer is wearing?

    Tampa Bay Bucs D-Line

  403. SteveK Says:

    Hargreaves is getting destroyed by grandpa Fitzgerald. What a crappy first round pick.

  404. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Yeah winston lets leave our defense on the field the whole half so they get winded and we can lose by even more great thinking dude

  405. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Laremy Tunsil was the pick not hargreaves

  406. JameisDungy Says:

    LMAO at LICHT not wanting Peterson.

  407. Bucs1856 Says:


  408. Brandon Says:


  409. CalBucsFan Says:

    Jameis has A LOT of growing up to do, the dude is missing by YARDS, not feet or inches. He should have stayed in college and refined his skills and become a better QB. it’s not about talent only JW, education helps too! Time to put him on the sideline and watch!

  410. Buc ball Says:

    Fire Koetter.

  411. unbelievable Says:

    This game is not on Jameis.

    Receivers not getting open.

    Run blocking is non-existent.

    Defense looks like a high school team. Words can’t describe how bad they are playing.

  412. mark2001 Says:

    Hate to say it, Nut…. but for a last second FG, the only team we have played really well against is Da’ Bears. Barely beat the toothless Giants. Frankly, I don’t know we can compete in the division this year.

  413. Ronteco Says:

    It starts at the top, people. Ownership fills from the office with garbage. Licht and his staff are incompetent. Ownership has had say on the last 3 coaches and missed on all of them. Bucs will continue to suck until new ownership takes over. Look at the Lightning.

  414. Ed Says:

    Can NFL teams forfeit?

  415. Easy Denman Says:

    This Quarters coverage is reminding me of Jim Bates defense

  416. Dirty Bucs Says:

    How are we leaving Fitz open every single play? WTF is going on? Put Grimes on him FFS.

  417. CJ Says:

    Hall of fame WR wide open every reception…

  418. NFLNut Says:

    Do we have the worst pass defense in NFL history?

  419. SteveK Says:

    Our pass defense is atrocious.

  420. NJBucsFan Says:

    So did th defense forget everything they learned last year when it just clicked?!?!

  421. JimmyJack Says:

    dont blame hargreaves. it’s apparent the game plan is crippling us on defense

  422. ChanEpic Says:

    Just think… Jameis hasn’t even thrown his customary first pick yet… Sheesh this is really embarrassing. Like fire up the coaching hot seat embarrassing.

  423. SteveK Says:

    Maybe jameis sucks because Jen is stuck going up against our pass impotent defense.

  424. LakeLand Says:

    Laremy Tunsil has been beasting all season at LT for the Dolphins..

  425. EA Says:

    Breaking news, aging Palmer and Fitzgerald break all kinds of records against bucs, how does that make you feel as a bucs fan.

  426. Big Stinky Says:

    It’s over 5 minutes into the 2nd quarter

  427. Mike Johnson Says:

    EMBARRASSMENT. I see fans in the stands..Laughing at us. Me and wife have just cut off the TV and out the door for the Movies. Its the SOB’S folks (same ole Bucs!).

  428. denjoe Says:


  429. unbelievable Says:

    Anyone thinking Jameis is the problem today doesn’t understand football. He played poorly most of last week, but today is not on Jim.

  430. JAB83 Says:

    Its a JW kinda day (JahEeeee Wizzzzz)

  431. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    “Swaggy” with the faux injury to get out of the game.

  432. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    mccoy and taking plays off love it great leader

  433. Andrew Says:

    Offense of coordinator’s are starting to realize that Hargreaves is basically a doormat. He will probably have more targets this year than last year at this rate.

  434. SteveK Says:

    This USB pathetic. We need someone to make a play.

  435. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    If they fire koetter he can take jw13 with him thanks please make that happen

  436. Andrew Says:

    Offensive* coordinators

  437. Ocala Says:

    Koetter was hired by Lovie Smith

    Remember that.

  438. ChanEpic Says:

    CalBucs fan sounds like a Russian troll. Like literally wtf are you talking about?

  439. jugheadfla Says:

    this is exactly the same crappy team as last year, Koetter/Smith/Licht have to go!

  440. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Bucs are soft, with a subpar talent level and an ego as if they are a good football team. Sad

  441. Rayjay1122 Says:

    This team has no dog in them. Bunch of ladies pretending to be NFL starters. What a total joke. Since the Bucs are a joke then instead of getting upset, we should just all make fun and laugh at these clowns.

  442. Can'tbethsbad Says:

    I’m so over spending my money on these clowns.where is the defense

  443. Wesley Says:

    Who wants to meet me at the airport to throw trash at these clowns.

  444. SteveK Says:

    We need to show something. Our players look like crisp. No one is making plays.

  445. mark2001 Says:

    Good thing we have a bye to regroup.

  446. Ronteco Says:

    Winston is in the bottom tier of QBs. His stats don’t mean sh1t to me. Move the chains sorry a$$ QB.

  447. denjoe Says:

    Licht sucks! He thinks he’s cool but our talent sucks.

  448. VA BUC Says:

    Lmmfao this team is who we really knew they wereTHE BUCS

  449. Capt.Tim Says:

    Whos 28?
    I forget . . .

  450. Rayjay1122 Says:

    At least we can get back to normal my and focus on the draft. Probably gonna get a top 8 pick.

  451. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    fitzgerald loves VH3 covering him

  452. ChanEpic Says:

    Vernon has entered the “Gots to Go” era of his career

  453. NJBucsFan Says:

    Let’s go d… haha does it matter?

  454. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Need to bench Hargreaves to set some sort of example.

  455. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bucs are incapable of adjusting on Defense. Where is our Great coaching staff Koetter and Smith? Watching us take a huge A.s Whipping. Worst game score of the NFL Sunday. At this rate, The AZ fans are gonna cheer when we finally do score. The route or shall I say, massacure is on.

  456. EA Says:

    Dude # 28 has no business being in a pro football game, wait what? He was a first round pick.

  457. SteveK Says:

    Did we actually make a play?

  458. Zwak Says:

    I’m sitting at Wild Bills sports bar in Fargo ND being laughed at by everyone for having a Bucs hat on! All in good nature but it sucks, did get three free beers from someone tho..

  459. Sam Says:

    and….. that’s the end of the football season for me…. This is pathetic.

  460. Eric Zimmerman Says:

    We suck

  461. NFLNut Says:

    Anyone ripping Jameis and not the defense has been exposed as mere trolls … go away, this has nothing to do with Jameis and everything to do with out porous defense.

    Jameis first 36 games blow Peyton Mannings out of the water … and Jameis is a year younger than Manning was through 36 games as well … get a clue

  462. ChanEpic Says:

    Carson Palmer beasted BAKER?!?!?!? Really?

  463. JimmyJack Says:

    how is our Dline even been built? why is it that we can’t stop the run and we can’t get a passrush either? meanwhile Licht invests heavily in a wide out that Dirk has no idea how to use

  464. Andrew Says:

    Chris Baker of course gives up on fighting for the fumble.

  465. BuccaneEric75 Says:


  466. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bet this bum won’t challege either. Fluck u Koetter.

  467. NJBucsFan Says:

    How does Baker lose that to Palmer

  468. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    baker lost to palmer cool

  469. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Our DL can’t even beat Carson Palmer for a loose ball…lol

  470. CJ Says:

    Leave it to this soft ass defense to lose a loose ball scrum to a f-ing QB

  471. Maxx Says:

    Palmer outmuscled Baker for that fumble…seriously?

  472. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Anybody talking about Licht needs to just stop. He’s the best GM we’ve seen in Tampa. Sheesh.

    The offensive side of the ball should be MUCH better than it is, and they are putting the defense in horrible positions game in and game out.

  473. LakeLand Says:

    Get this easy TD

  474. Rojas Says:

    Lmfao how in the hell does Baker lose that to Palmer ?!

  475. Raf Says:

    Embarrassing performance … going backwards fast!!!

  476. SteveK Says:

    Can we challenge the fumble recovery?

  477. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Chris Baker allowed an old freaking QB, to take the ball away from him.

  478. Sydney Says:

    A DT can’t even keep a ball away from a QB? I think that sums up this “Defense.”

  479. NJBucsFan Says:

    They score here im done today. Going to play Destiny 2

  480. bobby4919 Says:

    I’m over all the pre-season hype on this site and others. Get built up in the spring and summer only to have the ship blown out from underneath us come the real season. maybe I should just hibernate from ALL football after the Super Bowl and only come out when the games that count start. Oh… I forgot…. the NFL and the Glazers make me pay for two meaningless preseason games 🙁

  481. ChanEpic Says:

    Zwak, stay strong and brink heavily brother! We’ve still got… The Best Weather. That’s all I’ve got.

  482. UKBucfan Says:

    Hargreaves gets close just once and gives away a penalty.
    He is looking like a big bust as a first round pick.

  483. Q Says:


  484. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Jameis Winston is an Average QB…maybe. He will never be what many of you think he is. When you accept that, you’ll understand the frustrations of many fans who see nothing but mediocrity in our future.

  485. JameisDungy Says:

    Baker clearly had the ball. Then it was taken from him. However, since he’s already on the ground its BUCS ball. CHALLENGE IT.

  486. Steven007 Says:

    So Carson Palmer beat out big fat Chris Baker for the fumble. Why am I not shocked?

  487. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ll check the score later tonight. Me and the wifey are off to see the new Blade Runner movie. At least i won’t have to watch this slaughter.

  488. ChanEpic Says:

    NJBucsFan – Leviathan Raid awaits.

  489. Garbage Says:


  490. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Pre-season hype? Newsflash, they sucked in preseason too.

  491. SteveK Says:

    There we go, Clinton!

  492. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Chan yes it does. It will be a better way to spend my time

  493. jugheadfla Says:

    lol @NFLNUT, comparing Manning and Winston….your a joke!

  494. NFLNut Says:

    I would never have guess Clinton MacDonald would lead this team in sacks through 4.5 games … our defense has severe issues and I can’t imagine Kwon alone fixes them all

  495. SeattleBuc Says:

    Come on Bucs. Stop sucking. You are an embarrassment.

  496. LakeLand Says:

    24-0 damn. I was hoping for 28-0.

  497. EA Says:

    Aight America’s QB will lead this high powered offense to 4 unanswered TD s.

  498. mark2001 Says:

    Moral Victory….

  499. JimmyJack Says:

    another 1st half and less then 10 points. Dirks game plan is trash week in and week out. he also defers every kick-off and it backfires for last 3 years consistently

  500. Andrew Says:

    Second offsides penalty on our defense on a 3rd or 4th down. Do they want to stay on the field?

  501. Garbage Says:

    Throw, Throw, Throw…..3-n-Out

  502. Rayjay1122 Says:

    24-0 or 28-0 really doesn’t matter at this point. We don’t have the talent or a smart enough coach to come back. In fact, if the Bucs come back and win this game, I will eat all the crow that can be fed to me.

  503. g720 Says:

    Hargreaves must have some valuable film on Mike Smith for him to keep playing him.. My God, this kid is absolutely horrible!!!!

  504. NFLNut Says:


    jugheadfla … what I said is a FACT … JW has been far better through his first 36 games than Peyton (who was a year older and played 4 years of NCAA football to Jameis’ two) was … you may not like the FACT but it is a FACT


  505. Maxx Says:

    So depressed already today.

  506. LakeLand Says:

    Well I’m switching over to the Steelers-Chiefs game.

  507. simon Says:

    Bucs defense is so soft an old man QB beats out the defense in a pile on

  508. Capt.Tim Says:

    Even the ref was laughing at us

  509. Sydney Says:

    Vernon Hargreaves will not be a Tampa Bay Buccaneer in 2018, 2019 at the latest.

    Obvious bust. And all you Ronde Barber started slow too Gator apologists, Barber WAS never this BAD and started to get it early in year two.

  510. BucksRhonde Says:

    I’m actually disappointed they didn’t go up 28😔

    Hey do u think Jameis throws for 300 in garbage time again ?

  511. BoJim Says:

    I believe I said earlier today that AP was probably going to break out today and that the Cards would get well. C’mon, why is it by the time I can get to pick up the game a little later, the Bucs always seem to be down by 14-24 pts????

  512. Quattrolou Says:

    Winston benched? Wtf

  513. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    I love how Bucs fans are so happy to get rid of the few decent players we have and act all too good for HOFers like AP. The arrogant stupidity of this fan base is astounding considering how little actual winning has gone on in the last 15 effn years.

  514. jugheadfla Says:

    lets go Fitz!!!!!!!!! lolololololool

  515. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Winston done for the day. Shoulder.

  516. Bucs1856 Says:

    Uh oh JW going to cry.

  517. bucnut2 Says:

    JW hurt

  518. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Koetter giving up already. Big b!tch

  519. JameisDungy Says:

    Wow..benching Jameis.

  520. LakeLand Says:

    Here comes the Fitz lol

  521. EA Says:

    Whoa it Fitz is in, poop.

  522. CJ Says:


  523. Zwak Says:

    Thanks for the kind words!

  524. Andrew Says:

    Koetter’s 3rd and 2 passing call may have just ended our whole season. Great job coach.

  525. NJBucsFan Says:

    I really need the Bucs to pull it together. I’m in the battle of my life to raise my son a Bucs fan. Living outside of Philly I don’t want him to be an Eagles fan. They are the worst people on earth.

  526. JimmyJack Says:

    hargraeves looked better last year. no way he should be regressing. I question what the coaching is doing with him

  527. Capt.Tim Says:

    Q is an idiot
    Watch the line. Somehow, they are triple teaming McCoy.
    Its unbelievable

  528. Rojas Says:

    He wasn’t benched.. he got injured.

  529. bucnut2 Says:

    If JW hurt why is he on the sideline? IMO bucs have given up

  530. Ndog Says:

    This season is over. F this

  531. NJBucsFan Says:

    Shoulder injury for Winston. Looks like the Rogers injury FML

  532. BucksRhonde Says:

    Fitz will bring emcback

  533. Easy Denman Says:

    Winston doesn’t need to finish this game. Let’s hope he’s able to play in Buffalo next week

  534. Capt.Tim Says:

    We’re saved!!
    Its Fitzpatrick!!!

  535. bucnut2 Says:

    IMO winston not hurt that badly. Koetter sending a message. Bet he plays next week.

  536. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Let’s see who else we can get hurt toy. Humphries got blasted…lol

  537. LakeLand Says:

    There’s no need to keep Jameis in this game. It was over in the 1st quarter.

  538. CJ Says:

    Down 24.. Relying on Fitzmagic

  539. Sydney Says:

    Annnnnd…..there goes the season. So, whose the best CB and pass rusher available in the 2018 Draft?

  540. NFLNut Says:

    What happened to Jameis … I’m on Gamecast and it doesn’t say anything?

  541. bucnut2 Says:

    Easy- I am not sure we WANT Winston to play in Buffalo

  542. Zwak Says:

    Playing for 1st rd pick?

  543. CJ Says:

    Side note this love of Humphries is baffling

  544. JimmyJack Says:

    awful head coaching to bench our QB. he plays behind a line that was built to run block that doesn’t block well.

  545. EA Says:

    Winston looks like he pooped himself, where is his leadership and pep talk

  546. Should’ve been a jags fan Says:

    lol anyone else have their brown paper bags for the next home game ready?

  547. Bighck61 Says:

    Hot damn we are only 24 down and Fitz is in at QB

  548. NJBucsFan Says:

    You don’t send a message at 2-2 by benching your star QB when the D is horrible and the Oline is made of Swiss cheese

  549. denjoe Says:

    winston’s fine koetter just gave up already and wants an excuse.

  550. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Glazers need to bench this coaching staff. I bet the only 1 who would get picked up is Jay Hayes. Bajakian has DESTROYED JW3. Does any1 remember him being still inaccurate with the deep ball in college?

  551. ChanEpic Says:

    Is Mike Evans playing? How about D-Jax? Are they on the field?

  552. LakeLand Says:

    Jameis was slammed on his shoulder

  553. Jman Says:


  554. bucnut2 Says:

    The offense has better pace with Fitz

  555. g720 Says:

    Well we now have qb’s who overthrow Jackson by 5 yds and under-throw by 5 yds.

  556. SteveK Says:

    Game over

  557. Gobucs Says:

    The only thing hurt on Winston is his ego.

    He sucks. F all you people saying how great he is.

    Average at best.

  558. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Underthrowing Desean Jackson. Only in Tampa.

  559. ruggyup Says:

    Yeah, let’s hope JW is back next week. We need those awesome stats to prove something. Like what? Dunno. You tell me.

  560. Can'tbethsbad Says:

    Way to give up buds we pay to see quality and you guys gave up I’m done

  561. Mord Says:

    I could feel the jinx coming on when Joe started downplaying AP in one of the podcasts. (Not saying cause/effect.. just sayin’)

    Here comes draft coverage.

  562. ChanEpic Says:

    Reedy was just one-hand tackled by someone taking on a block. This team is SOOOFFFTTTT!

  563. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Koetters garbage play calling happened

  564. Richard Dickson Says:

    I bet if this was 10-10, Jameis would still be in. But they’re not going to get him hurt worse in a 24-0 game.

  565. SteveK Says:

    Sad to think this team was going to be competitive this year.

  566. bucnut2 Says:

    Gobucs- I’ve been saying that for 2 years and getting killed on this site.

  567. Ptwalk Says:

    Now Koetter’s play calling is creative with Fitz in the game.

  568. unbelievable Says:

    I don’t think he was benched. You could see the pain after that hit, I thought he was leaving the game after it happened to be honest.

  569. Chris Says:

    @gobucs I agree the only thing hurt is his EGO!!!

  570. CJ Says:

    Evans, Jackson, Martin naw let’s give it Reedy, Humphries and Sims… lol

  571. denjoe Says:

    Winston doesnt look hurt

  572. Bucbagwell Says:

    Thought the Bucs where suppose to be good? I’ve been watching bucs since I was little. This is it. Year in year out it’s done nothing but disappoint. Bucs start my week off on a bad note every week. Pathetic team. I’m out. NFL is falling apart anyway

  573. LakeLand Says:

    Kansas City is in a dogfight with Pittsburgh.

  574. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Props to skip bayless
    We all killed him for dogging our coaching staff, but he was right. This staff sucks

  575. Dexfields22 Says:

    5-11 season

  576. bucnut2 Says:

    I hope Winston is NOT back next week. Let’s prepare Griffin and see wha the can do

  577. ChanEpic Says:

    GoBucs, Jameis isn’t average, he’s above average to great. THIS COACHING is the problem. IF you can’t see that, tell me why Jamies as a Rookie looked and looks better than Josh McKown whom the NFL can’t seem to live without?

  578. EA Says:

    Stick carriers are very very disappointed at Koetter, this is the most talent we have had in a while.
    Once the rocket takes off you cannot stop it, guess what coach you’re right because you are the worst at in-game adjustments

  579. unbelievable Says:

    Nut- shoulder injury.

  580. Capt.Tim Says:

    Hope it isnt a collarbone. We’ll lose Jameis all year.

    Of course- the way the defense is playing- Joe Montana couldnt win a game

  581. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Here are some facts.

    The off season is sooooo long.

    We get all hyped about our team and hopes for a winning team.

    By the end of October we are finding other activities to keep our sanity.

  582. MIKE Says:


  583. Quattrolou Says:

    We are all Bucs fans or we wouldn’t be wasting our time on this site commenting on a disaster of a game. You freaking people (wdae reference) can sit here and call people fair weather fans…etc… let me say this.. I wear Bucs gear 3-4 times a week, drive around both of my cars with Bucs places and decals everywhere I go, talk Bucs whenever can, listen to wdae, read this website, etc. This team has the talent, maybe not at safety, but they have talent… WE ARE NEVER PREPARED IS THE PROBLEM. That is on the coaching. I know this team changes coaches too frequently but I feel like that’s not a terrible thing, cut the cord early before you just waste to much time. Mike Smiths defense is aweful far to many open lanes, way to soft on coverage (I don’t care if he says that Hargraves fault). He is the damn coach. He is up in that booth, he needs to be on the field. Koetter is the head coach, he has bad clock management skills, questionable play calling and so on. I had high hopes for this team, frankly I think every year is our year, but this is crazy. The scheme is the problem the team is soft and that is a coaching issue. I don’t know if new coaches will fix the issues. Hasn’t happened in years, but I thought Hriden was the hire last time and not Koetter, I was happy to get rid of Lovie but Koetter was a question mark for me. Think about this, this would have litterally been the same team with Lovie, they litterally play the exact same way. Sorry for the long post, th aks of you read it, I’m just at a loss.

  584. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Jameis injured his shoulder. He wasn’t benched you twits.

    God I hate Tampa fans….

  585. Matt B Says:

    I wanna smack all those fools who were so proud of the team for almost beating the Patriots. Embarrassing.

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

    Whatever waste of my time!

  587. Gobucs Says:

    Lmao fitz looks better than the all great hof er Winston

  588. NFLNut Says:


    Many of you sound sincerely mentally unstable … we’re about to fall to 2-3, the same record as the Cowboys and Raiders, two teams many were picking for the SB … R-E-L-A-X … we haven’t even played a single division game … Atlanta isn’t very good and Matt Ryan is playing like garbage, so chill … if we lose a HOME division game, then you can freak out …


  589. Capt.Tim Says:

    Incredible catch by Brate!!

  590. jugheadfla Says:

    I thought Martin was going to hit the JUGS gun this week?

  591. UKBucfan Says:

    Cam Brate only person doing anything so far today

  592. LakeLand Says:

    I knew the Bucs fans would be turning on each other before Mid-Season lool

  593. Sydney Says:

    Winston right shoulder sprain. Out 4-6 weeks.

  594. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    MIKE Says poor drafting.

    Bonzai says Mike is insane.

  595. NJBucsFan Says:

    Arthur. I believe this year’s motto is Speak Loudly and Carry a Pool Noodle

  596. Rojas Says:

    Lmao people really think Winston was benched.

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

    Season ticket holder here. Quit with the excuses. Show up and hit someone damn it. Coaching better step it up! This team is way better then that. All you Winston haters get a life. Go watch your teams win or lose. I’m so tired of it all.

  598. Buddy Says:

    Who’s carrying that BIG STICK now???? Certainly not Captain Dirk!! Hahahahaha.

  599. jugheadfla Says:

    dang the Cardinals are doing a lot of grasping

  600. mark2001 Says:

    That is all we need Mike…a racist blast, on top of this game. Thanks for absolutely nothing… Why don’t you root for the Rapid City Racists instead of our Bucs.

  601. UKBucfan Says:

    We should just take a field goal now Folk has Folk-ed off

  602. unbelievable Says:

    How is that not defensive holding agasint d jax?

  603. Zwak Says:

    What was that??

  604. ndog Says:

    How can this team be this bad? I mean you see them on the field arguing with each other on each coverage. Our Oline cant block anyone and lastly how can this franchise expect anyone to continue to invest time, money and emotion into this team? I have been a fan since the day I have been born but this is just to much to ask for anyone as they play like they don’t even practice/give a crap.

  605. LakeLand Says:

    Kick the FG….3 is better than 0


    we fkn suck

  607. jugheadfla Says:

    Hump was wide open

  608. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Mike Evans drop! Some things never change

  609. Sydney Says:

    Um….shouldn’t we be practicing FG’s?

  610. ChanEpic Says:

    Mike, its “Too” as in too many. #masterraceLOL

  611. Capt.Tim Says:

    Might not have challenged Petersen . . .

  612. NJBucsFan Says:

    Wow MIKE. I’m ashammed to share a first name and a favorite team with you.

  613. BuccoDav Says:

    Are they teaching our QBs to throw behind the receiver on purpose?

  614. Zwak Says:

    Wow Mike really? Not cool..

  615. g720 Says:

    thrown the freaking ball in front of Evans instead of behind him ! You look as inaccurate as Jaemis.


    we need a real playcaller

  617. Roadwarrior Says:

    We are just not a vary good football team. Period

  618. David Smythe Says:

    Why do we play soft defense off receivers (no jamming at the line) and nock them off their routes and timing.

  619. CJ Says:

    @NFLNut the point is the Bucs show no signs of being a good team… What does this team do well consistently every week? Offensively or defensively … I’ll wait…

  620. LongSeason Says:

    Me being a fan 1976-2017. This team is a disgrace from top to bottom.

  621. unbelievable Says:

    Hey MIKE thanks for letting us all know your an uneducated fukin moron and a bigot.

  622. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Koetter thought he was a genius by shifting up the OL. It turned out to be the downfall to the whole season.

  623. P'cola Buc Says:

    There are no words to describe this disappointment….This is the first time we really realize that Licht; Koetter and Smith may be on the firing block!

  624. Quattrolou Says:

    First half was “very disappointing”

  625. FR Says:

    Guys its not about a loss or win its about how you loss/win.

  626. Bird Says:

    Fitz sucks so bad.

    What’s crazy is they drove down field with no problem with him? Winston is Americas quarterback-yah right. Great leader sure. But I want my qb to win games.

  627. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Seriously… drop Fitzpatrick! I’m from NY and know how badly he sucks. He looks like he has no idea what he’s doing. And while on the subject, Winston…. for a #1 overall pick year 3…. sub par at best!!!

  628. LongSeason Says:

    Please move this team to London, Tokyo or Moscow. Spare the Tampa area anymore fraud of an NFL franchise.

  629. ClodHopper Says:

    Within the next three days Joe is going to I’ve the headline, “Stop with the Fitzpatrick talk!”

  630. Mord Says:

    One ray of sunshine: Cameron Brate’s catch

  631. denjoe Says:

    I want a qb that can play in the 1st half and hit receivers in stride for christmas.

  632. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This is like vintage 1976 football from the bucs

  633. BucFan4Life Says:

    This is a result of bad coaching.

    That and a horrific pick in Hargreaves. Wow that kid is just bad.

  634. Maxx Says:

    Why is Mike still allowed on this site????????
    Fans with single digit IQs should be banned.

  635. UKBucfan Says:

    FR we are losing pathetically, that is the worry. We’ve done zero well in this half and we only got close to Patriots in garbage time.
    Hard to watch

  636. Quattrolou Says:

    Everyone saying Fitz sucks so bad??!! Didn’t he have like 200 receiving yards in the first half, lol….
    he is our backup for a reason. He is not accurate. Comparing his inaccuracy to Jameis is laughable and I’m a huge Jameis fan.

  637. mark2001 Says:

    Sorry FR…at the end of the year, it is about a loss or a win….in fact 16 of them.

  638. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Guys, who cares if Jameis comes back? HE’S NOT THAT GOOD! When will you figure it out? Too many FSU fans here.

  639. BucFan4Life Says:

    Too many Gator fans drafting. Bench Hargreaves now.

  640. ChanEpic Says:

    Dirty Bucs, You can NEVER have too many FSU fans. EVER! 🙂

  641. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Lol we are on our second backup qb today jw13 was our first btw wake up fans why do we stand for this winston is on Fitz level we need a starter.

  642. Dirty Bucs Says:

    @ ChanEpic GO CANES!

  643. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Hargreaves is now soft as well…. what happened to Dirk relinquishing calling plays???

  644. Simeon97 Says:

    At least we haven’t had to see any missed kicks in this game

  645. Capt.Tim Says:

    Well at least we held Adrian Petersen under 100 yards . .
    . . In the first half . . .

  646. Should’ve been a jags fan Says:

    This team blows. Will be a 6-10 type of season! I’m gonna say it……..Lovie would call better plays. Damn I’d even take Greg back over dirk

  647. ChanEpic Says:

    @Dirty Go, straight to Hell, Canes. LOL.

  648. Gencoimports Says:

    The defense is beyond pathetic. Season’s over as far as making the playoffs is concerned.

  649. Eric Says:

    Good thing we signed mike smith to big contract.

    Teams are surely going after him for head coach after this.

    Koetter is not head coach material. Never was.

  650. Mord Says:

    Don’t you ice an injured shoulder when the player is still on the sideline?

    Not doubting the injury, just the treatment

  651. playerunknown Says:

    Dirk needs to go

  652. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This is like vintage 1976 football from the bucs

    On offense and defense

  653. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Anyone want to bet that the Cards get blown out next week. Just like last year?

  654. Dirty Bucs Says:

    @ChanEpic Been a Canes fan my whole life. Rub some dirt on it, you’ll be ok 🙂

  655. mark2001 Says:

    Sorry Joe…In watching the games today, it seems that Jameis looks about average among this group of good young QB’s. Hopefully he will be a great QB for us. But America’s QB? No more than Dom. was a rock star.

  656. Steven007 Says:

    After today’s game Dirk Koetter will be a winning coach exactly one more time than he’s been a losing coach. Does he lose the moniker when that evens out? Inquiring minds want to know.

  657. ChanEpic Says:

    Mord, yeah, now that you mention it. I guess it can depend on the injury but at the least wouldn’t it be immobilized? Do keep in mind, this is the Mrza Org…

  658. g720 Says:

    I agree that Koetter and Smith need to go ASAP. They do the same things every week and the same crap happens. Not NFL coaches.

  659. LakeLand Says:

    Drew Brees pass for 186 yards and the Saints score 52 points.

  660. Not there yet Says:


    R-E-L-A-X … we haven’t even played a single division game??????

    FYI when you lose to NFC teams that’s how you get eliminated from wild card contention. You have to beat NFC teams period unless you end up with the best record in the division and last time I checked we are in last place and doing it with style. This team plays scared and I bet d Jack is pissed he took less money to play with an inaccurate quarterback. What happened to him taking off pressure off ME13? Dirk and Jameis should be scoring points no matter how bad this defense is like Sean Payton and Brees oh that’s right we have the worst quarterback in out division so makes sense we are in last place

  661. DBS Says:

    Get over your Winston crap. Evans Made Manzel and Evans makes Winston. That is the only way he gets any major yards. But he is crap getting the ball in the end zone. And an expert at leaving the defense on the field all day. Go ahead and keep your blinder on. An elite QB he will never be.

  662. denjoe Says:

    I’m telling you Koetter’s gonna use the “injury” for sympathy.

  663. ChanEpic Says:

    @Dirty, inclusive of this game and D Cook’s injury and FSU’s W/L this year. It’s not been FSU’s year I’ll give you that.

  664. FR Says:


    I agree, but we have to look deeper then the coaches we have to look at the scouting staff. Also look around the league there are qbs doing more with less. We have to come to terms that Winston is average and college success doesn’t always transfer over. If the defense doesn’t drop the INT Winston has thrown a INT in every game this season.

  665. Easy Denman Says:

    Atleast if our defense can improve Fitz will give us a chance with those YOLO throws

  666. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Winston was a better QB when he won the national championship. I think Koetter has made him worse. Koetter has completely gone away from everything that made Winston remotely successful last year.

  667. unbelievable Says:

    To offer some perspective:

    Kansas City- the #1 offense in the league only has like 18 yards of offense today.

  668. denjoe Says:

    Let’s be honest we all Hoped that koetter was the guy but this looks like lovies buc’s.

  669. ChanEpic Says:

    How can the Rams with all of the their surrounding turmoil, be better than the Bucs? How is that possible?

  670. Jimmyjack Says:

    This team is unprepared in 90% of first halfs since 2015. Rarely do we ever adjust at halftime and only make plays from Winston on play breakdowns. Meanwhile our defense is getting worse and worse the longer we play under mike smith.

    The awful coaching on this team is destroying the talent. We didn’t even cover the end zone on the third TD for crying out loud. We run the same generic four man rush which never generates pressure and refuse to switch up the scheme…..not even on third and very long. Our best player is our punter because gameplanning is doing more harm then good here. This team will never win a playoff game with this garbage and embarrassing gameplanning.

  671. Dirty Bucs Says:

    @ Mark2001 You think Jameis is average among the group of young QB’s? Carson Wentz, Desean Watson, Mitch Trubisky, Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, Kirk Cousins…

    Those are the young QBs that are worth mentioning, and ALL of them are better than Winston

  672. Not mike Says:

    Ban Mike. Don’t need that here.

  673. Pryda...sec 147 Says:

    I’m so sad from this game …

  674. Bayers Says:

    Wow I don’t understand my bucs

  675. Alstott up the gut Says:

    I put much more blame on Winston than Dirk…. sorry but he has to stop throwing behind receivers, over throwing receivers, and tossing up the prayers that are available for anyone. Enough of your pregame nonsense and show it on the field or honestly, you are a bust where you were drafted!

  676. FR Says:


  677. EA Says:

    Lightning are off to a good start, man thank God for our top end , class organization hockey team to follow every October, that’s normally when the bucs season starts to go south.

  678. LakeLand Says:

    Nice throw Fitz

    Arizona fans

  679. Jimmyjack Says:

    Koetter is ruining Winston he hasn’t figured out a goal line offense in three years plus. And he has been given nothing but runblockers on his Oline and cannot manifest a decent rush attack. Dirk sucks so bad

  680. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This team looks like a bunch of clowns out there. I mean seriously. It isn’t even funny.

  681. ChanEpic Says:

    Seriously don’t understand why people are even mentioning Jameis today. He is literally NOT the problem here. WE DIDN’T STOP ANYONE ON DEFENSE AT ALL. How is that Jameis’ fault?

  682. Capt.Tim Says:

    Off to a good start . . .

  683. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    As soon as he released that ball, I knew it was a pick.

    I have not turned off a Buccaneers game in two decades…but I’m tempted right now. This can only end in pain.

  684. Rayjay1122 Says:

    All together now…..BOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

  685. Please Says:

    Why not kick the field goal and stay in the game?

  686. unbelievable Says:

    Gimme a break. Winston missed like 2 passes today.

    This game is not on him.

    Defense has been playing flag football out there.

  687. mark2001 Says:

    I saw Hundley play backup for Rodgers today. The passes were close, but not exactly there…front shoulder instead of back shoulder….two yards overthrow of Nelson…behind a guy or too high. And quite frankly, he looked more like Jameis than Rodgers…undoubtedly. I am beginning to wonder if Jameis really does have a accurate enough arm consistently to carry this team occasionally, like Rodgers has on a weekly basis for years.

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

    It’s frustrating seeing a team not playing to their potential year after year.

  689. Defense Rules Says:

    This is the worst I’ve seen the Bucs look in a long, long time … defensively and offensively. Arizona’s game-plan & play-calling … on BOTH sides of the ball … has been close to perfect. Bucs came out flat (as usual nowadays) and made zero adjustments. They’re being taken to the woodshed. Sorry, but it all keeps coming back to coaching.

  690. RealityCheck Says:

    No matter how much debate happens here, this team will always be garbage. This organization is garbage. Jameis isn’t the answer. The defense is pathetic. They haven’t been able to cover a slant route or play zone consistently for about 5 years now. Who knows about the kicking. The players are soft and lazy in their routes. The coach gets out coached consistently. 6-10 at best. They will never be contenders without a pass rush, never. Family has had season tickets since 1978, we’re done. The owners are selling you a fantasy.

  691. NJBucsFan Says:

    There’s the Fitzpatrick I remember

  692. BucFan4Life Says:

    Lavonte who? He’s disappeared.

    Lolololololololololol lol *deep breath* lolololololololololol

  695. bucnut2 Says:

    Winston was never that good.

  696. Wesley Says:

    Time to find a new team to root for.

  697. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Nice defense on that touchdown pass. LMAO!

  698. Jimmyjack Says:

    Look how bad Justin Evans looks. He is so indecisive, timid play is not what a guy like him is drafted for. Mike Smith don’t know how to put Evans into position to succeed

  699. BuccoDav Says:

    Keystone Cops!

  700. EA Says:

    Ahahahaha wtf was that by #21???

  701. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GMC………aka Mr Softie didn’t show up today either

  702. ChanEpic Says:


  703. DBS Says:

    Did the offense go down the field and score? No. They put the Defense right back on the field.

  704. webster Says:

    You know we could have a back up qb but he kneeled. Lets go with the pick machine fitzpatrick.

  705. BucsFan90 Says:

    Nothing has changed. Fire koetter and mike smith! Send em back to where they came from

  706. FR Says:


    What does these team look like with a Roger, Brady ect. QB

  707. Rayjay1122 Says:

    LOL. Good comedy.

  708. LakeLand Says:

    John Brown the great Abolitionist

  709. Rojas Says:

    Where was Justin Evans going ? To the tunnel ?

  710. Capt.Tim Says:

    Im just glad it wasnt Hagreaves that time

  711. 907BucsFan Says:


  712. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    What a bunch of LOSERS we are 🙁
    Helping Peterson up, and slapping him 5, when he is KILLING us.

  713. UKBucfan Says:

    Predictions??? Will we get a point? And how many more do AZ score against our hopeless D?

  714. LakeLand Says:

    Or John Brown who just scored on the Bucs.

  715. NJBucsFan Says:

    He y Mike Smith was that on VGIII and Smith too?

  716. University of Seffner Says:

    The body language of the team is not good at all.

  717. Jimmyjack Says:

    Justin Evans covering the sideline? This is a freaking joke! Somebody tell me this is a freaking joke

  718. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Justin Evans decided to go grab a hot dog at the moment when the guy he is covering catches a TD. Man that Licht knows how to pick em!

  719. bucnut2 Says:

    I think we finish 6-10. FSUking where are you? JW was the savior, right?

  720. unbelievable Says:

    That was some of the worst ball awareness I’ve ever seen.

    Only worse play I can remember was delvin breaux for the saints a few years ago.

  721. Buc813 Says:

    We have way too much talent to be playing like this. It’s definitely hard to
    Keep being put thru this every year

  722. darin Says:

    Exactly. Kick fg have whole 2nd half to score 21 measley points. Its called DIRK QUIT ON HIS TEAM. Dont challenge a clear fumble recovery by baker when theyre about to score again. Then dont kick fg, after pulling jameis when he already came back to play. The coach quit, plain and simple. Alot of bad buc teams ive seen for 40 yrs or so. Never seen a coach quit, in the first half and only dowj by 21 at time. Unacceptable.

  723. roger borras Says:

    i would say fire mike smith, but he needs to quit

  724. JameisDungy Says:

    Oh Licht.

  725. cmurda Says:

    Am I still going to get yelled at if I say please fire Mike Smith? I’ve said it from the beginning. Our defense getting owned again has got to stop. Jim Schwartz always should have been the hire. Anyway, it’s getting hard for me to defend Koetter. From not going on 4th and 5 at the Cards 40 to not challenging any calls to his offense putting up another gooseegg. When does this ineptness at offense end?

  726. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    I can’t wait to hear the stick carrier Justin P and the Joes telling the fans to stop being reactionary. Lol. Wow. Even Lovie is laughing now. He has Morris on the other line cracking up also.

  727. Capt.Tim Says:

    Evans- just for a change of pace

  728. bucnut2 Says:

    Hey Joes America’s QB will soon be driving a beer truck

  729. BucFan4Life Says:

    Glad I didn’t get those season tickets.

  730. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Tampa Needs- Defensive Ends (2), Corner Backs (2), Quarterback (1), Offensive Play Caller who isn’t predictable (1)

    Until we get most of that, we’re average at best.

  731. Should’ve been a jags fan Says:

    Hahahahaha who wants to bet? What coach gets fired first?

  732. Jimmyjack Says:

    I swear to god they don’t even know what position Justin Evans is. This coaching is a disgrace

  733. ChanEpic Says:

    @Capt Tim – does that tell us maybe VHIII isn’t the (only) problem? Maybe the coaching is suspect when all of the DBs look the same (save the vet FA signee no-one throws towards)?

  734. g720 Says:

    All the football experts including our reporters said this was the best Bucs offense as far as personnel in years. So we can’t score this year and no points in the first half. What does that say about our team. NO COACHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  735. BoJim Says:

    Are the Bucs making their charge yet?

  736. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Fitz=winston looks like the same guy playing lol the pick just slcemented that wow time to find a starting qb

  737. SeattleBuc Says:

    All I can say is wow. I thought we were passed this. What is this defense? We cant stop anyone.

  738. lurker Says:

    lets see what positives joe pulls from this…

  739. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Where’s GMC at??????

  740. mark2001 Says:

    Dirty…. I’m not sure I agree. But maybe we can agree that he isn’t “America’s QB”? He looks more like a guy that will have to work his rear off, and to improve his consistency, to be named among the really good QB’s in the game this next decade.

  741. Rayjay1122 Says:

    This is even worse than last year. 45-0 is likely.

  742. BucFan4Life Says:

    Textbook bad coaching.

  743. Don Ravenna Says:

    Has anyone seen any pass being even contested yet by the Bucs? Their receivers are at least 3 to 5 off on every catch. Our outstanding receiving Corps is getting close to zero separation. Nearly every catch by a Buc has been contested. Cardinals must have all kinds of HOF guys back there huh. GREAT coverage on that TD. Zephyrhills and River Ridge played better ball on Friday night. Awful

  744. ndog Says:

    This team is an complete embarrassment to the entire city.

  745. bucnut2 Says:

    cmurda- you can’t blame Smith for the lack of talent. That is on Licht and the weapons for Winston Crowd

  746. Jimmyjack Says:

    Arizona was leading league in sacks allowed. Why should Smith even try to take advantage?

  747. Capt.Tim Says:

    If you cant rush the passer, and have a bad Cb,
    This is what happens
    Especially agsinst a pro like Palmer

  748. lurker Says:

    I believed in Winston and dubbed him the savior. seems wrong now.

    also, who was it that said Winston would take us to a superbowl in year 3?

  749. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Someone here said “Now you see why Koetter and Smith were fired by Atlanta”.

  750. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    APB on GMC??????

  751. THETRUTH Says:

    Yeah let’s blame GMC dumb as can be to say that

    10 days to prepare and you give us this !!!!

  752. Bucbagwell Says:

    Jeff Garcia is probably the best qb the Bucs will ever have. Sad franchise

  753. jugheadfla Says:

    The funniest thing to me is that Djax came here because he wanted to get back into the playoffs………………….lol

  754. LakeLand Says:

    You’re not going to run on Arizona

  755. bucnut2 Says:

    lurker- everybody on this site

  756. jb Says:

    Hey Joe…
    Please explain to us all AGAIN why America’s QUARTERBACK IS SOOOOOOO GREAT!

    Not only is he not a good quarterback he’s freaking GUTLESS!!!

  757. FR Says:

    Damn they look like they given up

  758. NJBucsFan Says:

    Joe’s man crush D Smith sucks

  759. unbelievable Says:

    Fitz actually looks more decisive but will less accuracy.

    What happened to the run blocking?

  760. JonBuc Says:

    LOL! The Bucs are just what the Cards…and AP’s career needed! Glad Mike Smith is locked up…teams would be clamoring for him again this offseason!

  761. Jman Says:

    At least I can stop watching games earlier this year

  762. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Awwwwwwwwwww cmon

    GMC is supposed to be a leader for our defense? ??????

    GMC doesn’t lead crap…….just disappeared when the going gets tough

  763. mark2001 Says:

    Coaching may be the problem. But players have to make plays, and if they don’t due to inconsistency, lack of concentration and effort, no play calling will work. They used to argue about the best defense…Dallas’s Flex, the Tampa two, whatever. And you know the truth? It is the players that make the Defense great. Great players make any well founded defense, great. Our players aren’t playing very well, for whatever reason.

  764. Jimmyjack Says:

    Why do they put chuck Simms in the slot? He never gets open from that spot and he never makes a play. He has no use on the field with our play calling

  765. 907BucsFan Says:

    Don’t let it happen! We might score!!!!

  766. Bilbo baggins Says:

    After a run like that this is when the fans go “ok come on Bucs!! Let get this victory!!” Haha

  767. 907BucsFan Says:

    Sorry I mis-spoke

  768. Bighck61 Says:

    Go for two !!!!

  769. NJBucsFan Says:

    Come one DJax. Don’t silent the crowd. Most of them probably left

  770. LakeLand Says:

    That’s 4 points the Bucs has left on the field

  771. Mord Says:

    Why on earth go for two with this score?

  772. bucnut2 Says:

    I say we start Fitz

  773. NJBucsFan Says:

    Fitzpatrick is awesome

  774. g720 Says:

    How can anyone still blame GMC for this defensive showing. Our freaking linebackers haven’t made a tackle all game so far!! One player seems to know how to play football and that is Grimes.

  775. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    The offense is nicknamed Ringling Brothers going forward.

  776. JameisDungy Says:

  781. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Awwwwwwwwwww cmon………….

    GMC is supposed to be a leader for our defense? ??????

    GMC doesn’t lead crap…….just disappeared when the going gets tough

  782. cmurda Says:

    Have no idea why you go for 2 there. Is there ever a coaching decision that Koetter makes that 1) Makes sense 2) works.

  783. Broy34 Says:

    I’d actually read comments again if people blamed the right people but to say it’s on jameis is laughable. He was 6-10 and is injured lmfaoooooo. Good god people. He’s hurt. Find another scapegoat. When they go on a streak like last year I’ll be calling every. Single. Person. Out on this site that’s jumping off the ledge because it’s the same start as last year. Same people saying the same things as when they were 1-3. Just wait. Mike Smith needs to be replaced or they will never improve that much is clear. And Koetter if he doesn’t win 9 games needs to go. He’s been terrible at playcalling and equally bad with development and strategy

  784. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Coaching isn’t the problem we can’t say that this team isn’t executing the plays being called how can you know for sure what’s good and isn’t ?

  785. UKBucfan Says:

    Did we not sign someone who can kick this week??why are we so against giving Murray a kick to give him some confidence??

  786. JameisDungy Says:

    bucnut2 I’m pretty sure you’d rather have Glennon than Winston.

  787. NJBucsFan Says:

    I don’t mind going for two. This is the message. Tell the team they need to play this out.

  788. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Why didn’t we kick before the half to stop the bleeding and just now !?! Wtf! Don’t trust the new kicker already what a joke

  789. Rojas Says:

    What was the point of signing Murray?

  790. Capt.Tim Says:

    Well, thats something

  791. ChanEpic Says:

    People hating on Jameis are showing the worst of the worst in misplaced anger. Must be what used to be known as the Mike Glennon mob.

  804. unbelievable Says:

    Defense is beyond pathetic.

    People trying to blame today on Winston are just showing themselves to be complete uneducated morons who know nothing about the game of football. Carry on dummies!

  805. JonBuc Says:

    Kizer? Come on now! Grimes ain’t a quitter!

  806. THETRUTH Says:

    No more Gator DB’s they SUCK

  807. g720 Says:

    Damn, I knew I should have taken the Bucs defense in my fantasy league.

  808. bucnut2 Says:

    no leave Fits in

  809. NJBucsFan Says:

    Mixer sucks

  810. FR Says:

    Winston is gonna bring us back l

  811. NJBucsFan Says:

    Kizer *

  812. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Grimes the only baller

  813. g720 Says:

    Smith I knew you would show up when we needed you

  814. mark2001 Says:

    Chan.. many of us don’t hate Jameis….but have you seen the throws? He doesn’t suck…and when he is on, he can it a dime thirty yards down field. But he just isn’t truly consistent. And if you want to build a championship team, you need a great D, and hopefully a consistent QB. Ever wonder why Romo, for instance, never won the big one, or even came close?

  815. NJBucsFan Says:

    Donavan Smith is horrible

  816. cmurda Says:

    Donovan Smith – Not good enough. Dirk Koetter – Not good enough. Mike Smith – Sucks.

  817. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Defense quits

  818. JameisDungy Says:


    I hope they told Winston to warm up and he’s not doing it on his own. Cause that would mean he’s lost trust in Koetter.

  819. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Left Tackle Smith just let that guy breeze by. Wtf.

  820. Dirty Bucs Says:

    lol, we could f*** up a wet dream…I swear.

  821. 907BucsFan Says:


  822. unbelievable Says:

    That’s a BS ticky tacky call. F*k these refs.

  823. NJBucsFan Says:

    We have to be careful bashing Smith. Joe will ban is and blame Martin

  824. JAB83 Says:

    Its JW time please …. (Just Whiskey)

  825. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Hey , did GMC even dress out today?????????

  826. ndog Says:

    Not that is matters in this game but why do teams seem to get away with everything vs us? Fitz was clearly down on that sack and their guy comes in and hammers him helmet first. How is that not a 15 yard flag?

  827. JimmyJack Says:

    we have been built to establish a run attack and we come into every game pass heavy. I don’t get it. don’t understand what were doing on defense either. same generic looks and get dominated on the possession clock every game. defense has been sucking air every 4th quarter this seadon.

    these Atlanta retreads are bogus. same problems on offense 3 years and counting. defense just getting worse and worse as games go by

  828. unbelievable Says:

    Hey guys- anthem needs some attention.

  829. EA Says:

    Man feels unreal, with this defense that showed so much promise last year and with this offense that is loaded and we are still getting blown out, I’m speechless, life of a buc fan.

  830. bucnut2 Says:

    There we many on this site who predicted 11-5. Where are you guys??

  831. ElioT Says:

    Same sh*t, different year, over and over.

    Really no excuse for this crap with this roster.


  832. 813bucboi Says:

    This is all on coaching…pulling Winston…not throwing the red flag on a fumble…not kicking FG….this is bad….heads need to roll….GO BUCS

  833. JameisDungy Says:


    I’m a huge Winston fan. He’s taken this team from 2 wins to a 9 win team in two years.

    However, whats hurting Winston is just how good these other young QBs are playing. Dak isn’t making the dumb throws. Wentz/Goff look more accurate. Mariota when healthy seems more dynamic. Carr…is reaching great status. Watson currently leads the NFL in TD passes…

    My heart said Winston could and would be better than all of them. However, based on production he just isn’t there yet. Just not consistent enough. I don’t know why. When he’s on he looks like Peyton Manning. He’s he’s off it looks like Geno Smith.

    I still have hope for Jameis. I believe. I’m just not sure if Dirk/Licht are capable of getting the most out of him yet.

  834. g720 Says:

    Anthem, did any of our defense show up today???

  835. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Maybe we should post some missing photos of GMC?????

  836. JimmyJack Says:

    our C can’t even snap the ball and our HC acts like it’d not a prob. Given Dorks track record of being unable to fix problems I don’t see our C getting any better nor anything being done about it

  837. ndog Says:

    Why are they always WIDE OPEN!!!!!??????????

  838. bucnut2 Says:

    We need to turn Winston into a game manager. HE is Not a franchise QB.

  839. FR Says:

    Joe needs to ban himself for think Winston was our savoir.

  840. SeattleBuc Says:

    What happened to the good defense Coach told Jameis he had on hard knocks?

  841. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    It’s a Bucs life lol

  842. NJBucsFan Says:

    @FR this is on the D and the oline. I can’t blame Winston when he played less then a quarter

  843. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Too late GMC

    Thanks for more of your garbage sacks during garbage times

  844. unbelievable Says:

    I wanna see GMC play pissed like that every game!

  845. denjoe Says:

    McCoys wasting his career here.

  846. 813bucboi Says:

    Where you at @realist…this is a horrible performance by this coaching staff…GO BUCS

  847. Steven007 Says:

    Hey Anthem did you like that sack you little douche bag?

  848. mark2001 Says:

    Bucnut…. many don’t see much of other teams and what their talent level is. And we hope for the best. When you spend quite a bit of time in the backyard of some other good teams, it gives you a little different perspective. We never had much depth, and everything had to go right… it hasn’t. And it started off wrong from opening day one, and has been dicey ever since.

  849. ndog Says:

    Why is Jamies even being discussed on this thread today? I mean anyone with eyes can see this game is 100% the defense.

  850. Quattrolou Says:

    It’s easy to game glam against this team. Just realize whatever the weakest part of your team is, the Bucs won’t practice for and you can set all kinds of records on that area of your team.

  851. Mord Says:

    Man .. McCoy just sacked Palmer with one hand while practically carrying a >300lb dude that was holding the rest of him. .. C’mon! That was one of the most watchable moments of this game.

  852. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Bucs defense failed to take out one of the best players in the game in larry
    Fitzgerald. Vh3 can’t play physical enough to slow down a tough physical receiver
    like fitzgerald. But he should be up there trying and get safety help .We should have to be more prepared for AP. But maybe Jameis needs to learn something about sustaining drives. Hard to believe fitzpatrick is moving the team as bad as he looked in preseason.Jameis innaccurate deep passes kill drives.Tom Brady is working hard to improve his deep passes. Jameis needs to do what takes to improve this area of the game.

  853. bucnut2 Says:

    Honestly- I believe we should can Licht and Koetter and hire Gruden torun the entire operation.

  854. JimmyJack Says:

    3rd and long. we are worse then 50/50 on third and long. been that way for years too. I just fing understand how this can still be an issue

  855. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Just imagine if you had drafted Hargreaves, Spence, Aguayo, and then Smith in your first four picks of a draft.

  856. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Too late GMC……..

    Thanks for more of your garbage sacks during garbage times

  857. BuccoDav Says:

    Nice. Bash GMC when he’s triple teamed and bash him when he makes a play… at least you are consistent. Unlike this team.

  858. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I predicted 10-6 but obviously I was duped as usual by this team. Fans have every right to be angry over the dashed hopes yet again. This is at best a 5-11 team.

  859. Dirty Bucs Says:

    LOL @ TheBucsAnthem. You think the O-Line is blocking half-heartedly, because they have a big lead? GMC is earning every single tackle and sack. Just stop it.

  860. JAB83 Says:

    Its ME time… (No really Im done and gonna do me the rest the day!)

  861. ElioT Says:

    Consistently setting records for the opposing teams, year after year.

  862. Dirty Bucs Says:

    If you guys want to watch a real football game, just switch over to Pittsburgh @ Kansas City. Two REAL football teams…

  863. Rayjay1122 Says:

    The Cards more than likely just dusted off the game plan from last year. The Bucs offense is so predictable.

  864. Bucsace Says:

    Yup, JEFF GARCIA was the Buc’s best QB ever….very underatted! Something very wrong with team

  865. mark2001 Says:

    Here again, some of you guys just want to pin it on the coaches. You don’t know the plays called, if the reads and progressions weren’t right, who ran the play properly and who blew up the play. Please…this is a team effort…and there was plenty of “sucking” to go around. It isn’t just coaching, a player, one side of the ball or the other. It was a mess. And if you want to dog the coaches, the “why the mess” of that, it is the question…not the things you guys want to critique.

  866. JonBuc Says:

    Maybe Joe meant “Winning” coach Koetter in the same vein that Charlie Sheen used to be “winning”?

  867. QUE 5 Says:

    Team wasn’t ready to compete. That’s on the coach. Monken needs to take over play calling.

  868. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You guys do realize that Arizona stopped playing hard after they went up by 30????

    Bruce Arians feel sorry for the bucs, so they’re letting up

  869. denjoe Says:

    This game is on koetter, smith and licht period.

  870. FR Says:


  871. cmurda Says:

    Nice catch Evans. That should have been defensive PI but they were not going to call it. Thankfully he caught it

  872. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Our backup can throw a better deep ball then winston lol what a joke

  873. Nprbuc Says:

    I want sooo much to believe in this team. I bought into the hype of all the new weapons for Jameis. Where the hell are they? They actually game planned for 10 days for this mess? I am trying hard to hang in there but it gets tougher each week. Go Bucs!

  874. Quattrolou Says:

    Mark2001, maybe, but maybe the players are doing exactly what the game plan was and were not prepared. HERE IS THE ISSUE AS A FAN…. it’s easier to change 3 coaches then the entire team.

  875. FR Says:

    The QB is the heart of a team if he sucks the team gives up

  876. Gobucs Says:


    Stfu dude

    If you think coaching hasn’t been an issue all season then you’re just plain stupid.

  877. mark2001 Says:

    den…you won’t hold the players responsible, too? Sounds like a sure bet to another coaching carousel….and when will you hold the players responsible?

  878. denjoe Says:

    Oh god I’m so tired of changing coaches and gm’s.

  879. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Gruden said on Hard Knocks if they needed him that he was just up the road. We need a real coach. The last decade has proven his worth. Every single game Gruden coached you knew the Bucs had a chance to win.

  880. cmurda Says:

    Come on Anthem. Cards aren’t giving the Bucs anything. This is the type of offense that should have been called to begin with. I don’t understand why we don’t go hurry up often with JW. He thrives on it. I have to put our underwhelming season on our coaching staff, particularly Mike Smith.

  881. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    You guys do realize that Arizona stopped playing hard after they went up by 30????

    Bruce Arians feel sorry for the bucs, so they’re letting up……..so sad

  882. Bighck61 Says:


  883. denjoe Says:

    Doesn’t the GM have to know the players?

  884. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Good pass Fitz ,whats up with the two run plays afterwards.

  885. Quattrolou Says:

    Mark2001, I agree that the players are responsible too, but this predictable offense and soft ass defense week after week is a coaching issue. Some players, not naming names aren’t executing and we did have some injuries, but does this look like a prepared team? In my opinion, no.

  886. mark2001 Says:

    Go… I’ve seen Jameis miss reads, miss open receivers, throw into double coverage and such all year long. If guys are open and Jameis doesn’t see them, that isn’t on the coaching. Watch the replays and see the open guys looking back to Jameis while he throws into coverage and focuses in on one or two guys. Go…just Go….Clown.

  887. denjoe Says:

    Why do they constantly have to change peoples positions too?

  888. NJBucsFan Says:

    Red zone isn’t even playing the Bucs TDS.

  889. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  890. JimmyJack Says:

    it’s O bvisous this team was purely unprepared today. we came in playing soft zone and backed up giving up chucks to AP and had no audible ready to adjust. Arians made Smith look stupid on that opening drive. Smith proceeds to make himself look bad by not calling any pressure to Palmer who has struggled with it all year.

    Smith didn’t even have his players ready to cover the entire right half of the end zone on the third TD. meanwhile we have our strong safety covering the sideline which is his worst attribute and our ballhawking CB stuck in man coverage which is not his strenght.

    We are never prepared to start a game and it’s been that way for the totality of this coaching regime.

  891. 813bucboi Says:

    So I guess we’re not going to try our kicker today?…real smart coach…GO BUCS

  892. jb Says:

    I hope Fitzpatrick starts the rest of the season. At least we won’t have to listen to Winston tells all how he’s trying to be the Greatest Quarterback of all Time.
    Hey Jameis………GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!

  893. Bucsace Says:

    I’ll take a Harvard guy over an FSU guy anytime……Brain Power!!!!

  894. NJBucsFan Says:

    I read how this “mini-bye” was supposed to help us. Looks like we wasted it.

  895. The Anomaly Says:

    Reading the thread…those posters that were calling folks crybabies and “it’s only one drive” need a reality check. This is NOT a playoff team. Not even close.

    Disgusting effort. Disgusting play. Disgusting coaching.

    Martin is hot garbage again. WHich doug will you get? Dude is inconsistent and UNRELIABLE. Find a new RB. Huge mistake bringing Druggie back.

  896. bucnut2 Says:

    We are NOT making the playoffs again. Let’s talk draft

  897. Mord Says:

    JimmyJack .. I don’t remember there ever being a Bucs coaching regime that was otherwise.

  898. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I’m glad Winston’s not in the game so he can’t get these free garbage time stats that Fitz is.

  899. JimmyJack Says:

    good point 813. it’s almost like Dirk doesn’t even care

  900. Quattrolou Says:

    I’ll be the first to agree that Jameis has missed many receivers and that is on him and not the coaches. Don’t know why you are so sensitive. Clown?? Trying to have a reasonable conversation with a so called co-fan. RELAX yourself. If you have read anything I have typed it has never been argumentative just confused about why this team can’t perform.

  901. James Walker Says:

    It is not rocket science. The Bucs are not that good. Maybe next year.

  902. QUE 5 Says:

    I really don’t like Gruden’s version of the West Coast offense, but anything is better than Koetter’s basic offense. Time to hire Gruden.

  903. jb Says:

    Between the horrendous gameplan/coaching and Winston playing like he usually does these days this team will be based in London before they win another Super Bowl.

  904. denjoe Says:

    Who has any faith in their ability to draft?

  905. TheBucsAnthem Says:



  906. Mord Says:

    Another glimmer of sunshine: Justin Evans seems to be a useful player.

  907. unbelievable Says:

    It will be interesting to see how AP plays against a good defense…

  908. JimmyJack Says:

    can somebody tell him why Dirk took 3 points off the board before half?

  909. cmurda Says:

    I won’t get excited. We will get screwed out of this fumble too.

  910. mark2001 Says:

    Quatto…did you read what “go” said? I thought “clown” was being pretty nice, under the circumstances.

  911. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Jimmy because it doesn’t matter today. Team needs to play it out. A FG at that point is not gonna cut it

  912. jb Says:

    10 more games of this $HIT!!!!!

  913. Quattrolou Says:

    So here is a coaching issue… if they kicked that field goal before the half we are down 1 score right now. Again players are not getting a pass here but…..

  914. 907BucsFan Says:

    All we will now see is AP

  915. cmurda Says:

    Umm, we are down 11 with 13 mins to go. I’ve seen crazier things happen.

  916. bucnut2 Says:

    Notice how we are mounting a comeback WITHOUT Winston!!

  917. Dirty Bucs Says:

    a FG prior to the half makes this a 1 score game right now…only down 8. So yeah, the FG is pretty freaking big right about now.

  918. Quattrolou Says:

    Mark2001, thought you were talking to me, sorry. Didn’t read what he said.

  919. unbelievable Says:

    Pretty crazy to think we would be down 1 score if kicked a field goal…

  920. MarTar Says:

    We are coming back.

  921. Bilbo baggins Says:

    We will win this game

  922. JimmyJack Says:

    you can say a FG don’t matter but it could be a 1score game. I say that matters

  923. JameisDungy Says:

    Imagine if Dirk didn’t waste 4 points..

  924. NJBucsFan Says:

    @quattro there is nothing saying the team would respond of they made a FG. Maybe the team is responding because of the pushing by the coach. Not settling for easy points in FG and extra point. Letting the team know he believes in them

  925. Gobucs Says:

    Lol coaching isn’t an issue?

    Sure would be nice to have those 3points before the half dirk

    You dumb stupid worthless coach.

    F you. You f ing idiot.

  926. Mord Says:

    QUE 5 … Do you actually remember where Gruden’s offense got to with the Bucs? He was fired at a time when every beer-burping fan in the stands could tell you exactly what play was coming; the innovation in it was nil. All he did was stubbornly stuck to the principles of the WCO, despite mediocre player execution and defenses having caught up with the concepts.

    Koetter gets no pass … but let’s not completely lionize the former coach who won a Super Bowl, but eventually gave us all reflux, too.

  927. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Glad to see the Bucs playing with a little more pride and heart. This is something they usually don,t do when the blowout starts.

  928. JAB83 Says:

    Ha… Sack fumble… Strip fumble….. Returned for a TD…… To mate Oh…. To Moto….

  929. 813bucboi Says:

    Well well well now…looks like we have a game on our hands….GO BUCS

  930. Dirty Bucs Says:

    JameisDungy, What 4 points?

  931. JimmyJack Says:

    we would be down 7 not 8. if we make the xp

  932. Matt B Says:

    Sure wish we kicked that field goal at the end of the first half. I wished it then too but coach saw things differently.

  933. Costa Rica John Says:

    Omg, they pulled it to within 11 point and lots of time left. Unbelievable we are close at all.

  934. UKBucfan Says:

    If it weren’t for awful play calling (not kicking a FG) and then two failed 2pt attempts, we wouldn’t be out of this.
    Arizona trying to make a game of this

  935. bucnut2 Says:

    Licht has to go. He got the most important pick in franchise history wrong

  936. JAB83 Says:

    Im gonna watch some Baseball in hopes of seeing some JAX

  937. Quattrolou Says:

    @njbucsfan…. the coach shouldn’t let the team think he believes in them. They have shown nothing to earn that right. Get the points when you can.

  938. unbelievable Says:

    Mord you are correct. His offense never really evolved after year 2 or 3.

    Remember he couldn’t get our 2 best wide receivers on the field at the same time?

  939. bucnut2 Says:

    We are not going to win this but it is telling what’s happening

  940. Big Stinky Says:

    Chasing points the whole game. We should ONLY be down by 10 OR 7 if we kick the FG in the first half

  941. bucnut2 Says:

    The offense looks better with Fitz

  942. SeattleBuc Says:

    bucnut you’re trippin this is not Jameis’ fault. This game however is getting interesting and still winnable.

  943. unbelievable Says:

    McClain has been awful today BTW.

    Worse than Hargreaves today.

  944. Gobucs Says:

    Looks way better with fitz

    That’s troublesome

  945. mark2001 Says:

    And if we had scored, we would be down less than a TD. Koetter has had his share of game management issues this year…no doubt. But it is on the entire team.

    We know what they will say in the conferences. Koetter will say it is on him…Jameis will say it is on him….Smith will say the D didn’t get the job done. And the truth? It is a team effort or for better or worse, shared by all.

  946. 813bucboi Says:

    Dirk should’ve at least tried the kicker before half time and on one of the TDs….GO BUCS

  947. NJBucsFan Says:

    @quattro I respectfully disagree. Sometimes for the long term well being of any team…management may need to bipass what the public views as a easy choice.

  948. unbelievable Says:

    Sawggy sighting again today.

  949. cmurda Says:

    Pathetic defense. 3rd and long. Mefffing blitz for God sake M Smith. This is why he sucks as a D Coord.

  950. unbelievable Says:

    Well that was probably my the last chance we would have had…


  951. SeattleBuc Says:

    Damn. Stop them!

  952. cmurda Says:

    Pick up your jock strap Grimes. Wow.

  953. denjoe Says:

    Maybe we should bring in a real defense to practice against.

  954. JameisDungy Says:

    We really didn’t sign Adrian Peterson…

  955. Brad Isherwood Says:

    Go back to the previous Bucs helmet with the smaller Flag!
    Helmet change and other Jersey set is da Curse.

    Bucs were s@ weak in preseason….and it just continues.
    Physically weak,….mentally weak.
    Koetter comes off like Rand Paul.
    Maybe he is channeling Aqua Buddha

    Pour a Glass of Disappointment. ..and make it a double!
    Panthers and Falcons lose…..big moment to go 3- 2 and stay in the hunt…missed!

  956. unbelievable Says:

    That should have been stopped in the backfield ! Again!

    Ugh it’s so frustrating to watch.

  957. Bilbo baggins Says:

    I disagree we will win

  958. mark2001 Says:

    Yeah…AP is all washed up…and people thought it was a joke when some of us were upset when we didn’t even give him a sniff…especially with Martin out as he was. I wish our guys were so “washed up”.

  959. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Remember the time when the fanbase of a mediocre at best football team poopoo’d the prospect of a first ballot HOFer joining their football team?
    That was funny how that turned out!

  960. Steven007 Says:

    And just like that the game became interesting again.

  961. unbelievable Says:

    Great play by Grimes!

  962. SeattleBuc Says:

    Ok 3rd and 12 Lets go!

  963. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    You morons saying we should have kicked a field goal before the half are the same ones that would have said WTF are we doing kicking a field goal down 24 points!

  964. BuccoDav Says:

    If we kicked the field goal earlier, you’d be bit$hing that Koetter lost all confidence and gave up on the team. It’s no win with some of you…

  965. bucnut2 Says:

    Lets stay with Fitz over Winston.

  966. mark2001 Says:

    Arthur…as I remember, when we drafted Sapp, many of us thought we got a steal, but a guy of questionable character (with the marijuana rumors swirling around and such). And I don’t remember anyone thinking he might be a “bust” after he got on the field. At Miami, he played like a man among children.

  967. NJBucsFan Says:

    I feel a pick 6 coming from Ryan Misspatrick

  968. unbelievable Says:


  969. cmurda Says:

    I agreed with going for it instead of the FG. I also think we should have gone for it at their 40 on 4th and 5. It’s all water under the bridge now anyway. The Cards got lucky and downed it at our 1. We need to make some big plays here and get within a score.

  970. Fire the glazers Says:

    Let’s not turn on eachother because this team cannot consistently play well in the trenches. Let them get their crap together, and in the mean time take your anger out on that old couch in the garage.

  971. Bilbo baggins Says:

    I see a TD to Desean Jackson coming.

  972. Gobucs Says:



    You’re probably one of the morons saying we’re still gonna win right?

    Don’t make excuses for this pathetic team. Terrible defense
    Offense looking better with fitz than the so called America’s qb.
    And terrible coaching all season. Out coached in nearly every game

    Stfu you idiot

  973. SeattleBuc Says:

    NJBF, pls God no.

  974. denjoe Says:

    were carrying a little twig.

  975. Ptwalk Says:

    @Bradrentuckeybuc You take the 3 before the half because you get the ball comin out the half.

  976. bucnut2 Says:

    Our D really stepped up in the second half. Often is the problem.

  977. orlbucfan Says:

    Checking in. Refs have been all over the Bucs. Cardinals aren’t anything to get excited about. I am very disappointed with offense and DK. Same thing as last year but at least Bucs aren’t getting blown out. Now, refs are throwing flags all over the place on the Cardinals. What gives? Cards were doing the same thing in the first half. It doesn’t change the fact that the offense/DK didn’t show up again. Fameis is hurt and Fitzbrain is in there. Great. Oh well, we have 11 more games. FWIW

  978. NJBucsFan Says:

    We are carrying a pool noodle.

  979. cmurda Says:

    Ryan Fitz just ended us. Stares down Evans and baited into the throw. The same Fitz that he’s always been. Sucks.

  980. bucnut2 Says:

    WOW gAme over

  981. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Uh oh

  982. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    I guess the stick carriers don’t travel well.

  983. The Anomaly Says:

    Mike is weak

  984. ndog Says:

    Hey Bucnut is that Jameis falult as well. Get out of here and learn how to watch football pal.

  985. bucnut2 Says:

    Terrible throw by Fitz

  986. zwh99 Says:

    Ryan fitztragic

  987. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Evans got outmuscled badly. Softy softy Bucs

  988. orlbucfan Says:

    Old Fitzpatrick just turned it over. Guy sucks and that’s what I was afraid of. Loss today.

  989. bucnut2 Says:

    ndog- JW sucks. Simple as that

  990. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Welp…que the Benny Hill Music…

  991. NJBucsFan Says:

    I was close. He threw the INT

  992. Jimmyjack Says:

    Now we have to get our defense to perform and they are winded from getting dominated in TOP. We have a runblocking line and Martin looks good. No reason to keep deferring every kick and come out one dimensional leading to three and outs.

    It hasnent worked since Dirk got here and never will. The moment this coaching staff learn how to gameplan is the moment we may have a shot at contending. But it’s just always too little too late with this team.

    We have an offense that can win on the final possession but game management from the coaching staff never lets us get there. And don’t tell me about last week cause we didn’t have enough time and TOP killed us like it always does against better teams. I’ll never understand how and why this team was built

  993. FR Says:

    we have a qb problem Houston.

  994. BuccoDav Says:

    Fitz has to throw that sooner…

  995. cmurda Says:

    Fitzpatrick is terrible. He usually makes the reads but can’t throw. JW can throw but doesn’t make the reads. That one was pathetic by Fitz. Simply pathetic. He ended us.

  996. webster Says:

    The bucs could have had a backup qb but he kneeled. Now they go with the pick machine fitzpatrick.

  997. orlbucfan Says:

    Guarantee Cardinals won’t look this good the rest of the year. Count on it.

  998. NFLNut Says:


    HATERS if JW was Fitz right now: Jameis isn’t the answer, his pick cost us this game; he will never be great, all he’s doing is wracking up garbage stats, etc., etc., etc.,.

    JW HATERS on Fitz right now: Wow, he’s playing better than Jameis, these aren’t garbage stats at all, we should start Fitz, Jameis isn’t the answer, Jameis sucks, etc., etc., etc.,.




    fkn fitz

  1000. Rojas Says:

    Outmuscled ? Lmao the corner jumped the route. On a bad throw how did he get outmuscled? That was a horrible throw.

  1001. Bilbo baggins Says:

    We will still win

  1002. FR Says:


  1003. bucnut2 Says:

    WE need to draft Defense and turn JW into a conservative GM. He needs to hand off and on occasion throw.

  1004. unbelievable Says:

    So a tied possession goes to the receiver…

    And you have to maintain possession through the catch when going down to the ground….

    But somehow that was a completed interception?


    Gene whatever the sh!t his last name is always finds multiple ways to screw the Bucs. I honestly would bet against us every time he officiated, regardless of our opponent.

  1005. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Mark2001- do you always make irrelevant and non sequitur points in conversation or just this one time?

  1006. ndog Says:

    Bucnut yeah thats what I thought zero brains in your response. Get a new hobby pal cause watching football aint your thing.

  1007. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Fat lady was singing in the first half. No big deal
    The Bucs deserve this embarrassment. Other than a few individuals making a play here and there, the overall lack of execution is mind boggling.

  1008. JonBuc Says:

    How is Justin Time Poloudski gonna buff this turd on his podcast? “Play softly and carry a big mf’n purse”. LOL!

  1009. 813bucboi Says:

    We should’ve gone for it for a number of reasons…get something before half time because you get the ball first after half….see if your kicker can make a FG…. horrible coaching…this ain’t the first time Dirk has made bad decisions and quit on this team….GO BUCS

  1010. denjoe Says:

    Can we trade most of the team,coach and GM?

  1011. orlbucfan Says:

    Another penalty on AZ–6 in a row. What gives here??

  1012. Steven007 Says:

    Well at least Patrick Murray has been amazing. He hasn’t missed a damn kick.

  1013. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Their last score, cut our throat.
    We are 3 scores down.
    They almost came back

    We spent all that Money on Martin. We could have just parted ways with him, and signed Peterson.
    Ask yourself, who you would rather have, Doug Martin, or Adrian Peterson ?
    McCoy and Peterson are ex teammates at Oklahoma.
    Maybe Peterson would have lit a fire under McCoy, if he were here ?

  1014. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This website is already writing the excuse laden articles to explain another jalopy. America’s Quarterback Mr. Magoo is a Freeman-type liability at this point. The defense continues to get worse if that is possible. The 100 million dollar man McCoy was a no show once again. Both are the pillars of the franchise and neither makes anyone around them better.

  1015. orlbucfan Says:

    Fitzpatrick is a bad joke. They should have kept MG8.

  1016. unbelievable Says:

    Wtf is marpet doing there?

    Ugh, this team….

  1017. mark2001 Says:

    Fitz is definitely no starting QB… but as you usually only expect a back up to keep things even or maybe a little better than that, I don’t think we could expect much more from him.

  1018. Jimmyjack Says:

    Grate was our best weapon today and he was 2nd or 3rd option on nearly every catch…..that tells me all I need to know about our offense.

    On the third TD nobody covered the entire right side of the end zone. That’s tells me all I need to know about our defense

  1019. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    Haha no, no comeback this week. Our pass defense is horrific! Winston has looked lost all season and can’t throw an accurate deep ball to save his life.

  1020. orlbucfan Says:

    Mr. E Nigma Says:
    October 15th, 2017 at 6:54 pm

  1021. cmurda Says:

    Dirk is quitting on this team with these crap ass runs when there is no time for this lunacy

  1022. unbelievable Says:

    Throwing that away stops the clock. Isn’t Fitz a vet who should Know these things?

  1023. denjoe Says:

    can we get a yard plzzzzz

  1024. NJBucsFan Says:

    Winston has not looked lost. He got over hyped for the prime time game (shocker) but he’s played clean games every game except the MN game.

  1025. Jimmyjack Says:

    Now we are running a read option……..is this HC have his head up his azz or what?

  1026. Big Stinky Says:

    This team doesn’t know how to score fast enough

  1027. Mord Says:


  1028. orlbucfan Says:

    TD, doug martin. Too little, too late!

  1029. BoJim Says:

    Mercy rule?

  1030. mark2001 Says:

    NJ…clean in terms of not turning the ball over. But he is missing too many guys in the passing game.

  1031. bucnut2 Says:

    I like Koeter but he is one his head.

  1032. bucnut2 Says:


  1033. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Koetter looks lost. The look on his face would make a great gif.

  1034. orlbucfan Says:

    Like seriously, how come refs didn’t flag AZ in the first half?

  1035. denjoe Says:

    Winston is descent but I would like to score a few points in the first half.

  1036. Jimmyjack Says:

    We would have 31 if Dirk kicks the FG. We gave up 38 though so no boggy right?

  1037. Yucs4life Says:

    Don’t understand our play calling

  1038. Quattrolou Says:

    We should be down 7 right now.

  1039. 813bucboi Says:

    Winston may be hurt be he ain’t injured….dirk pulled him…even the commentators have been critical of his decision making…try the damn kicker!!!….GO BUCS!!!!

  1040. cmurda Says:

    We would be in this game if Fitz doesn’t throw 3 seconds too late on the pick at the 1

  1041. mark2001 Says:

    So who is going to give some guys credit for coming back and at least making a game out of this, with a back up QB? And then ask yourself why we were blow out in such a manner earlier?

  1042. denjoe Says:

    pathetic have we ever scored a 2point conversion?

  1043. bucnut2 Says:

    Koeter has left 4 point on the field.

  1044. unbelievable Says:

    The commentators are idiots. They’d have to go for a 2 PT conversion either now or on the next touchdown.

    Really not complicated, man I hate stupid people.

  1045. JonBuc Says:

    Atta boy Koetter…make sure you need two tds in three minutes. P.S. You’re starting to look like my granny with the specticals reading that Waffle House menu.

  1046. g720 Says:

    This freaking coach needs to go. He just took us from a touchdown and 2 pt conversion and a field goal to now needing 2 touchdown. what a freaking idiot

  1047. MarTar Says:

    why use up a time out.

  1048. Quattrolou Says:

    BucNut2 I think it’s 5 point

  1049. Dirty Bucs Says:

    This game has been so poorly managed. Take the 3 before half, kick extra points, and we’re in a 1 score game with the ball right now. Good Lord.

  1050. Jimmyjack Says:

    We would have 31 if he kicks the FG

  1051. Mord Says:

    Somewhere, John McKay is laughing under his breath.

  1052. bucnut2 Says:

    Game over

  1053. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Or not, apparently we touched the ball first.

  1054. orlbucfan Says:

    Missed 2 2-pt tries. Doesn’t matter. 30-38, math beats us. Oh well.

  1055. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Incidentally Bucs fanboys cannot manage arithmetic.

  1056. cmurda Says:

    Hit Barber. Not our ball on the onsides. Can’t get outcoached for a whole half every game and then try to make furious comebacks. This is on our coaching staff especially Mike Smith’s pathetic, predictable defense. If Koetter wants to save his own job, we need to get a new D Coordinator.

  1057. unbelievable Says:

    Better run a play fast!

  1058. MadMax Says:


  1059. NJBucsFan Says:

    Unbelievable can’t run a play if the refs don’t set the ball and open play

  1060. unbelievable Says:

    Oh well

  1061. MadMax Says:

    keep kneeling

  1062. NJBucsFan Says:

    Yeah. Nice try though. I’d like to see us start winning

  1063. unbelievable Says:

    Yea I know NJ…. I know…

  1064. Jimmyjack Says:

    We still should have 31. And Palmers weakness is dealing with pressure and Smith refuses to change his generic four man rush any down any distance.

  1065. NJBucsFan Says:

    Ok. Wasn’t trying to be a d*ck. Just don’t want people’s hopes to get up

  1066. cmurda Says:

    LOL. Peterson fumbles. Ball never bounces our way. LMAO

  1067. g720 Says:

    Smith doesn’t know how to adjust his game plan if his life depended on it.

  1068. unbelievable Says:

    Haha no worries man.

  1069. denjoe Says:

    This reminds me of white snake song.

  1070. ArthurKoblenzBuc Says:

    Maybe we can blame this loss on Doug Martin.

  1071. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Arthur. The Joe’s will find a way

  1072. orlbucfan Says:

    Hopefully, the same pattern will repeat. We will start turning things around like we did last year. Where is our offense, Koetter????? They are so much better than this. Koetter get your head together and start calling the offense for this bunch!! They deserve it!! Koetter, this one is on you!

  1073. mark2001 Says:

    Guys… the game would have played out differently had we scored that three, or five points. You assume everything else would play out the same. The problem isn’t those points…it is the lousy Offensive and Defensive game we played the first half.

  1074. denjoe Says:

    koetter made sure he had a scape goat!

  1075. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Mark….you’re assuming people think logically…

  1076. BuccoDav Says:

    Well, even if we lose, I’ve got to say that I’m impressed this team did not give up and have fought to come back and make it somewhat competitive.

  1077. mark2001 Says:

    AP…five yards a carry…washed up.

  1078. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    A blowout would have been better. Now they will think they did something right in the faux comeback. Koetter will ride that in his press conference.

  1079. g720 Says:

    That is how you throw a freaking long pass Jaemis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1080. Bucs1856 Says:

    Omg a long ball on target!!

  1081. BuccoDav Says:

    They did do something right in this comeback.. THEY DIDN’T GIVE UP!

  1082. Idahobucsfan1145543 Says:

    Winston who ? Lol

  1083. Bilbo baggins Says:

    We gonna win

  1084. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Oh jeez…and we still have a shot at this. Should be tied

  1085. bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s keep Fitz as starting QB.

  1086. MarTar Says:


  1087. Jimmyjack Says:

    A real NFL coach has 38 points right now.

  1088. 813bucboi Says:

    And now he tries the kicker….lol….GO BUCS!!!

  1089. unbelievable Says:

    What a crazy game.

  1090. NJBucsFan Says:

    Cut The kicker. Bad kick there

  1091. bucnut2 Says:

    game over but nice effort by Fitz

  1092. orlbucfan Says:

    Touchdown, ME13. That is how good this offense is. Now we would have been up 35-38 if DK kicked extra points. Ceeyrist!

  1093. Bayers Says:

    Hey Fitzpatrick can you please teach jameis Winston how to throw the deep ball please and to look off of receivers thanks I appreciate it

  1094. Gobucs Says:

    Fitz is better lol.

    And that’s saying something.

  1095. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    See that JW? THAT is how a deep ball is thrown!

  1096. SeattleBuc Says:

    Wow, 27 points in 4th Quarter. Way to save face. Next time do it in the 1st quarter.

  1097. Jimmyjack Says:

    I hate his HC and his coordinator

  1098. ndog Says:

    This loss is on coaching as Mike Smith did not have his D ready to play and DK gave away at least 6 points between FG and EP’s.

  1099. MadMax Says:

    eh, jokes

  1100. g720 Says:

    Yes, Jimmy that is true but we don’t have an NFL coach

  1101. cmurda Says:

    Well Patrick Murray made his only extra point but he certainly can’t kick an onsides kick. This is on Dirk and Mike. Nobody else. Got throttled in 1dt half without any adjustments at all on defense. It’s the same storyline every game. How long can you allow Mike Smith to have no defense? He can’t adjust because he only knows one defense. Any team in the world can pick us apart because they know precisely what Smith’s putrid scheme will do.

  1102. NFLNut Says:

    If we would have kicked XP’s and taken the 3 points at the end of half it could be 38-38 right now

    However, I agree that getting blown out may have been better if we end up losing this game … our entire team should feel ashamed, not encouraged …

  1103. NJBucsFan Says:

    AZ was playing soft D. Let’s slow the Fitz train.

  1104. orlbucfan Says:

    Gave away this one just like the one last Thursday. Hopefully, this stops now.

  1105. Bighck61 Says:

    Wow a quarterback that doesn’t overthrow receivers “ What a concept

  1106. Quattrolou Says:

    I’ll state the obvious as others may have. A correctly managed game has us tied right now. If you have faith in your team you get all the points afforded to you and not start panicking trying to get touchdowns instead of kicking field goals and kicking extra points instead on two point conversions.

  1107. unbelievable Says:

    We can argue about kicking or not kicking a field goal but the fact is our defense was completely missing for 2 quarters.

    And that’s what lost this game.

  1108. FR Says:

    Im telling u guys we just need a real QB (not fitz) and this team would be good.

  1109. Jimmyjack Says:

    Dirk took lots of points off board today. Any other coach in the league has 38 in this game. We deserve better then this idiot Dirk. His game plan sucks and that’s why Brate is our top receiver today

  1110. Matt B Says:

    At least I saw this team play with some heart in the second half. That’s about all I can say positive. Good to have Lavonte back too… Terrible in- game decision making by coach again.

  1111. Andrew Says:

    Joe: Are the Bucs a bad football team that can’t start/finish, or a good football team a few fixes away from being great?

  1112. denjoe Says:

    They didnt have faith that our d could stop the run.

  1113. JonBuc Says:

    Fought back with heart…gotta give them some credit.

  1114. ndog Says:

    You cant give up 38 points and expect to win games.

  1115. MadMax Says:


  1116. Jimmyjack Says:

    Already not looking forward to next week

  1117. g720 Says:

    Especially when you throw 5 points away because of bad coaching

  1118. Max Says:

    Adrian Peterson is washed up, our defense just sucks. Watch him get dunked on by the rams next week.

  1119. Andrew Says:

    Also, seems like we’re playing guys with something to prove every week (Keenum, AP) and we tend to let them prove.

  1120. NFLNut Says:



    782-1,305 (59.9%) for 9,475 yds, 63 TDs, 40 INTs & a 19-22 W/L record

    Note: Edge James averaged 2,200+ rush/rec yards and 18 TDs in Mannings 2nd and 3rd year and Marvin Harrison was the best receiver in the NFL

    756-1,266 (59.7%) for 9,391 yards, 57 TDs, 36 INTs & a 18-23 W/L record

    By the way, in Peyton’s 5th season he would “regress”, throw 23 picks and the Colts would go just 6-10 and idiotic short-term view fans would be calling him a bust, a loser, etc., etc., … this is all to say that you nutcase fans need to take the LONG-TERM view on Jameis and not demand perfection week to week.

    Peyton, Marino, Favre, Tarkenton, Fouts, Jim Kelly, and Steve Young, SEVEN of the greatest HALL of FAME QBs in NFL history combined to play ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN (114) years in the league … and yet won just FOUR (4) SuperBowl rings as starting QBs … that’s 1 ring for every 28.5 years played.

    Likewise there are still franchises (Lions, Browns, Falcons, etc) that have NEVER won a single SuperBowl.

    All this is to say … R-E-L-A-X and E-N-J-O-Y Jameis’ career rather than acting like mental patients who need to be confined to a padded room every Sunday afternoon.
