Buccaneers-Giants, Open Thread

October 1st, 2017

Comment all game below with fellow Bucs fans and the occasional troll.

Keep it clean and ditch the personal attacks, unless they’re directed at Eli Manning and his 16-26 road record since winning the Super Bowl six seasons ago. (Joe’s filters are ready for you extreme haters.)

Most important, have fun, stay safe, and prepare for Joe’s award-winning postgame coverage from the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.

Go Bucs!

    Dedicate to running the football….set up some bombs….hang on to win.

  2. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:

    Cam Newton is having a good day vs the patriots defense. We should be in for a treat on Thursday

  3. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Bucs: Turn the tide of history; stop making winners out of struggling team and struggling players. End that today! Focus on football, focus on the game! Take care of the ball Jameis, and don’t blow the silent count!

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Let’s run it at least 9 times today….and save Sims for 3rd and 20…..

  5. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I would like to see some fullback action today…either lead blocking or running on short yardage. Let’s see what these guys can do. It worked during the preseason.

    GO BUCS!

  6. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Can a 34 year old CB cover OBJ man to man? I hope the Bucs don’t try it.

  7. NOSBOS Says:

    Oj the pats have given up 400 yards in total offense againstevery opponent they’ve faced this season. At this point they are old man brady or bust.

  8. Rob Says:

    I sure hope I’m wrong but I fear that the Human ATM, (America’s Turnover Machine), Jameis Winston, will turn the ball over 2-3 times through interceptions or fumbles and make it nearly impossible for the Bucs to win. I say we run the ball the majority of the time and take a few shots deep. Jameis usually overthrows on the deep ball so maybe Jackson or Evans can snatch one or two and score without risking too much. At least a deep interception will be like a punt. We absolutely have to get a big game from Spence and McCoy in regards to getting pressure on Manning and create defensive turnovers somehow. Otherwise the Bucs get spanked and will be 1-3 after Thursday’s game with the Patriots. MUST win today to save the season. Go Bucs!

  9. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Someone better call 911…Cam is on fire in BOSTON!

  10. NOSBOS Says:

    Over 400 yards.

  11. LakeLandBuc Says:

    NOSBOS, Julius Peppers has another sack ( 2 today) now he has 4.5 for the season.

  12. NOSBOS Says:

    Lakeland I hear you bro. But what’s going on wit the league man. Mariota left game hammy,Julio left game hip,Sanu left game hammy,DC left game knee.

  13. simon Says:

    I see Keenum has come back to earth…so it’s got to be the bucs that’s making 3rd rate journey men QBs into second coming of Joe Montana

  14. LakeLandBuc Says:

    NOSBOS, I don’t know…But everyone was passing on Deshaun Watson during the draft. He has accounted for 5 TDs against Tennessee.

  15. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Not everyone…but teams that needed a QB

  16. webster Says:

    Arm chair gms…..can we please put to rest this dalvin cook nonsense? I saw the idiotic comments longing for cook today on other threads. He suffered what appears to be a serious knee injury. You know, the injury concerns that were discussed pre draft. Thank you for playing.

  17. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    I hope Mr. Magoo brought his glasses this week.

  18. Broy34 Says:

    Bye bye dalvin cook

  19. LakeLandBuc Says:

    There has been a LOT of injuries today.

    What the hell is going on out here?

    Vince Lombardi

  20. Greg Says:

    This is going to be a loss today, the giants have too much talent to go 0-4 and the Bucs don’t have a NFL quality run game or defense (due to all the injuries). Jamies will (as always) serve up some juicy turnovers. Giants 27 Bucs 17.

  21. ClodHopper Says:

    I hope the American flag of quarterbacks, Jameis Winston (who shows so much respect he even stands for other country’s anthem) throws 6 tds today!! I won’t even complain if they’re throw to Salami Mike and Wrench Jackson!!

  22. King C Says:

    Holy Moly
    Case Keenum looks like garbage again at home
    That’s a real bad sign for today

  23. unbelievable Says:

    Are all the butthurt ones gonna cry about players kneeling for the entire game? Or are you guys just getting it all out of your systems now?

  24. ClodHopper Says:


    You’ve gotten lazy

  25. LakeLandBuc Says:

    The Facons just lost to the Bills, another one bites the dust, another one down

  26. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Case Keenum only looks good against the Bucs. Against the rest of the NFL, he look like cow manure

  27. Rod Munch Says:


    The Panthers win… there goes my upset hopes for the Pats game, not to mention having half the defense out. Well the Bucs offense will have to win this game and the next, hopefully Dirk earns his money over these next few days (and no, running up the middle on every 1st down isn’t earning your money).

  28. NOSBOS Says:

    For you webster I’ll continue mentioning his name.

  29. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Carolina beat the Patriots, I just Brady and Co will take it out on the Bucs Thursday night.

  30. Brandon Says:

    All that blue in the stadium…..smh

  31. BuccoDav Says:

    McCoy sucks!

  32. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  33. LakeLandBuc Says:

    I guess, not I just

  34. NFLNut Says:

    Matt Stafford played far worse than Jameis against the Vikes today and the Lions only managed 14 points BUT THEY WON … funny what a pass defense can do, eh?

  35. BuccoDav Says:

    Just kidding…

  36. NFLNut Says:

    We got the Vikes off their embarrassing loss to the Steelers … and now draw the Patriots off an embarrassing loss to the Panthers today … crap

  37. CarolinaBucFan Says:

    What channel on Sirius is it on??

  38. NFLNut Says:

    Mariota got hurt AGAIN and had another game with LESS THAN 100 PASSING YARDS … threw for 96 yards and 2 picks …

  39. LakeLandBuc Says:

    What run game?

  40. cmurda Says:

    I constantly profess my love for Koetter but dude. Trust your damn QB.

  41. NFLNut Says:

    Mariota has just one legit TD pass in 4 games … his other two were behind the line of scrimmage screen passes …

  42. NFLNut Says:

    Stupid play calling by Koetter to start this game … ugh

  43. Dreambig Says:

    Good thing McCoy is soft. He really sucks! LOL!

  44. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Keep running it.

    Nice punt!

  45. Destinjohnny Says:

    Bo Jackson would have 2 yards a carry with our line
    The holes just aren’t there

  46. Big Stinky Says:

    No faith in Winston on 3rd and 3

  47. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Patriots going to kick the Bucs butt…Brady never drops two straight. Bucs on the way to 1-4. I wonder, was Evans American or Russian today? Is he going to protest a little rain?

  48. LakeLandBuc Says:

    The Bucs has the WORST RUn O_Line in the NFL. I said this all of last season.

  49. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    NFLNut, the play calls were perfect. It will open the pass.

  50. King C Says:

    NFLNut you’re reaching about JW playing better than Stafford against MIN
    Stafford threw ZERO INTs
    I like Jameis but let’s not get carried away

  51. King C Says:

    Koetter usually goes conservative in play calls after JW has one of those 3 INT days

  52. unbelievable Says:

    Clod- it’s cuz I’ve grown bored with the people crying about it. I’ll try to dig deeper next time 😝

    Back to the game now…. not looking so hot…

  53. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Defense is on the ball today!

  54. mark2001 Says:

    This is where we really find out about the fortitude of this team. With a wounded NE team coming in next week, we need this one… have to have it. If we don’t win this one, it really puts a huge roadblock ahead as we move through this season. Come on guys. let’s put our money where all the hype has bee…..go Bucs.

  55. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Lakeland Own, Adarius Glanton. he should have started last season instead of old man Daryl Smith

  56. Zwak Says:

    Please use the tight ends, short safe passes!

  57. BuccoDav Says:

    Hey NUT,
    How many turnovers did Stafford have today?

  58. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Barber Bowl begins! The defense looks good so far. The elements are impacting the game calls. If the Bucs offense are going to stay on the ground, I’d like to see JW run a bootleg every now and then. He has the athleticism to pull it off.

  59. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hey guys. Great positivity. This should be called the Negative Nancies Open Thread.

  60. BuccoDav Says:

    Great misdirection and run!

  61. BuccoDav Says:


  62. NFLNut Says:

    DAK PRESCOTT with the game on the line … a 4th and 10 from mid-field CHECKED DOWN and dumped it off to Zeke … tackled short … GAME OVER Rams win

    THAT is why I would take Jameis over Dak every day of the week … Jameis doesn’t care about “stats” … he will go for the win, stats be damned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. NFLNut Says:

    But, hey, Dak didn’t throw a pick and his stats will look nice … GARBAGE!

  64. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Fire the cannons!

  65. cmurda Says:

    Dirk and JW turn it around with a brilliant drive.

  66. Zwak Says:


  67. Big Stinky Says:

    That’s more like it Bucs!

  68. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Way to go team!

  69. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Keep the pressure on, defense!

  70. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Dak has been to the playoffs..I can’t say the same for Jameis

  71. LakeLandBuc Says:

    They do play the game to reach the playoffs and the Super Bowl

  72. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    please defense keep the pressure on and keep raining please!

  73. TeddyTB Says:

    Much more like it! We need to get them out of here early so i don’t have to stress all afternoon.

  74. cmurda Says:

    We can’t tackle.

  75. cmurda Says:

    I’m not going to hate on Beckwith but let’s just say, he’s definitely playing like a rookie lacking awareness.

  76. NFLNut Says:


    Dak, Stafford and Went AVERAGED 20-30 for 189 yards and 1 TD while leding their offenses to 23 points per game against the Giants this year … let’s see what Jameis and the boys can do today.


  77. King C Says:

    Dak is not the reason the Cowboys lose. They have a WR problem and a DEF problem and a head coach/GM problem

  78. EA Says:

    Pass rush non existent against the worst o line in the league, hard to keep the comments clean.

  79. LakeLandBuc Says:

    No respect, they went for it

  80. TeddyTB Says:

    Looks like yall can leave 93 alone now

  81. orlbucfan Says:

    Here come the refs. DK and the offense have to play to their potential today. They do and they win. Tampax, DMC just made 3 tackles. Go figure.

  82. sorryitriggeredyou Says:


  83. Dreambig Says:

    McCoy another tackle in the. Backfield. God he SUCKS! Hahahahaha!

  84. cmurda Says:

    I don’t want to hear anything from the McCoy haters. That dude is ballin and is our D Line.

  85. BuccoDav Says:

    GMC bringing consistent heat!

  86. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Great defense! Bend, don’t break!

  87. King C Says:

    Only idiot TB fans would bang on G McCoy.. The guy’s a perennial Pro Bowler

  88. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The GMC haters will have a tough time with that drive by the Giants. Where are the other defensive linemen?

  89. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @EA 93 is going HAM won that double team on 4th and 4.

  90. SB Says:

    HEY TMAXIPAD………….What sayest you now????? GMC just made THREE Pro Bowl plays in a row

  91. jugheadfla Says:

    so far so good, but maybe dial up a blitz or 2 Mr. Smith?

  92. Dreambig Says:

    McCoy forces Eli into a bad throw. Cant we please get this guy off the field. He is so soft and a loser. Terrible.

  93. unbelievable Says:

    Man if only we gotten rid of McCoy like a few dumbdumbs want….

  94. King C Says:

    The theme of the season so far is Defenses play better when coming back home after a game on the road… Let’s Go Bucs!

  95. SB Says:

    Hey Tmax……..Is your estrogen in check after all this Stellar play by GMC?

  96. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    For it being Beckwith’s second game starting, I think he’s doing great!

  97. sorryitriggeredyou Says:


  98. BuccoDav Says:

    Ok. Can we stop bitching about O.J. now?

  99. cmurda Says:

    JW looks great. Heeeeeeeeeerrrreeee’s OJ

  100. cmurda Says:

    Hi Folk. Wow.

  101. LakeLandBuc Says:

    That is the worst blown coverage I have ever seen

  102. unbelievable Says:

    Maybe the OJ haters will keep quiet for a bit now…

  103. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    OJ, good job getting open!

  104. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    I love JW at home he’s a beast!!!!

  105. WeAreLost Says:

    hell yeah

  106. Doctor Stroud Says:

    This OJ is welcome in Florida! The other OJ…not so much!

  107. TeddyTB Says:

    Too damn easy. Folk messing up my party.

  108. King C Says:

    Anybody else see Kostos on CBS call OJ howard having a big day today!

  109. Zwak Says:

    Thank you!

  110. lurker Says:

    wow, who opened the playbook?

    oj howard haters and gmc haters quiet

  111. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Somebody need a lashing after that

  112. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Good things happen to Mike Evans when he acts like an American. See? Karma!

  113. TeddyTB Says:

    Lets get Godwin a TD next!

  114. lurker Says:

    what happened to our kicking?

  115. GrudenForPresident Says:

    GMaC is showing out! where’s T MAXIPADS whiney ass now?!?!

  116. cmurda Says:

    Chris Conte 4 steps behind but, hey he was close.

  117. orlbucfan Says:

    Uh-oh, 13-0. MIssed PA. Bucs offense and DK should beat this team. Eli’s getting long in the tooth. When are the refs going to call holding on NY?

  118. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:


  119. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @cmurda try to ignore him, put our thumb over him when watching thats what I do LOL

  120. BuccoDav Says:

    lurker Says:
    October 1st, 2017 at 4:38 pm
    what happened to our kicking?

    I think Aguayo is available if you’re interested…

  121. cmurda Says:

    LOL @ triggered. Good idea, good idea

  122. SB Says:

    Gerald McCoy AGAIN Tmax!!!!!

  123. LakeLandBuc Says:

    What happen to the boycott? I see a LOT of fans in attendance

  124. BuccoDav Says:

    C’mon cmurda, he was a step behind and the throw was perfect…

  125. TeddyTB Says:

    Conte always

  126. unbelievable Says:

    Keep going full throttle!

    No relent!

  127. cmurda Says:

    Wow OJ. You gotta catch that

  128. Dreambig Says:

    Surprise, give the ball to Sims on 3rd down and prepare to punt.

  129. orlbucfan Says:


  130. orlbucfan Says:


  131. LakeLandBuc Says:

    I said Beckwith will be a star

  132. Gencoimports Says:

    Total B.S. Eli didn’t get called for grounding

  133. LakeLandBuc Says:

    VH3 celebrating, his man had him beat by a country man

  134. orlbucfan Says:

    Refs surface again. Where’s grounding on Eli?

  135. LakeLandBuc Says:

    *country mile*

  136. King C Says:

    V Hargreaves shouldn’t be celebrating so much, that was Eli’s bad throw

  137. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Why can’t our safeties get over on the top on these guys or like ever? Tandy and Conte always trailing on those bombs. VH3 and Grimes are gonna get pissed.

  138. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @King C Yep.

  139. TeddyTB Says:

    Good kick return and blocking. Lets get it!

  140. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Did Fox just get the Barber brothers mixed up?

  141. Rojas Says:

    Wonder if Beckwith takes over MLB, in the years to come. Maybe move Kwon to SAM. Either way we have a good trio of LBs

  142. unbelievable Says:

    Agreed on VH3.

    Celebrate when you make a play, not when you get lucky.

  143. BuccoDav Says:

    Sorry, do you know what defensive play was called? Do you know what their responsibilities were?

  144. NJBucsFan Says:

    Fitting Howard scores his first TD as Cook goes down for the season.

  145. unbelievable Says:


  146. lurker Says:

    i’ll take whomever splits the uprights! lol

  147. BuccoDav Says:

    Too late…

  148. TeddyTB Says:

    Winston gonna F around and have a 400+ game

  149. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Jameis please stay away from Jenkins side on those short outs pretty please?!

  150. lurker Says:

    it’ll be nice to have drug martin back thursday, despite joe saying he wont be on the team.

  151. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Folk is bad as Roberta, great job Licht.

  152. unbelievable Says:

    Lucky right there. Jameis needs to put that a little further outside.

  153. cmurda Says:

    Kicking problems fixed? I don’t know about that. Folk has been awful today

  154. NJBucsFan Says:

    Folking A

  155. NFLNut Says:

    Dalvin Cook is out for the year? No! I love that lil dude

  156. LakeLandBuc Says:

    They both should have been cut

  157. unbelievable Says:

    Ugh. Cmon Folk!

    Don’t let this momentum swing the other way guys!

  158. Rrsrq Says:

    c’mon Jameis, throw that ball to the outside to DJax

  159. NFLNut Says:

    Nick Folk … ugh …. I wanted the Bucs to sign JAKE ELLIOT … you know the rookie kicker that nailed the SIXTY-ONE yard game winner to beat the Giants last week.

  160. lurker Says:

    wtf with folk now?

  161. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Bad series play calling wise. Keotter and Monken better chill out that’s old JW right there, don’t let him take shots just yet.

  162. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Connor Barth was the best of a bad situation.

  163. THETRUTH Says:

    The great Nick Folk !!!!!!

    Guys career has been up and down , we getting down.

    I’m going for 2 on every TD

  164. NFLNut Says:

    After about 17 minutes of action … Jameis has more passing yards than Stafford had against Giants in their entire game

  165. NJBucsFan Says:

    @NFLNut. He’s done. ACL. Non-contact injury

  166. unbelievable Says:

    Nothing wrong with that 3rd down call in my book but I didn’t like the quick out to Evans on 2nd down. Jameis has gotta throw that outside or it’s gonna get picked next time. And on 1st down Barber has to hit that hole with power. Now standing up straight.

  167. cmurda Says:

    Eli with 30 seconds to throw the ball. Our D Line is embarrassing. Step it up. Hello Spence and Ayers.

  168. NFLNut Says:

    I hear Roberto Aguayo needs a job, HAHAHAHAHAHA

  169. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Football is a dangerous sport, the players should be protesting these non- guaranteed contract But they will holdout in 2020, I’m 100% sure of it.

  170. Rrsrq Says:

    Eli too clean

  171. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    You let a team like the Giants stick around….you are going to get burned.

  172. BuccoDav Says:

    Nut, quit obsessing. Wins are what matters in the NFL. I thought you said you didn’t care about stats.

  173. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Chris Conte get a lot of tackles, 9 yards up the field

  174. NFLNut Says:

    NJBucsfan … thanks for the update … that’s crushing for that kid; he had a legit shot at ROY … however THAT is exactly why I would probably NEVER spend a 1st round pick on a RB … it doesn’t matter how great they are, the risk of injury is too great and their careers are too short … OJ Howard could give us 10+ years of quality play and that is what 1st round picks are for!

  175. BuccoDav Says:

    Boston was held!

  176. BuccoDav Says:


  177. cmurda Says:

    Eli can’t be allowed to sit back there. M Smith with his predictable defense needs to disguise blitzes. Our ends aren’t capable.

  178. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Will Gholston beating on his chest, get a sack please

  179. SoCoBucsFan Says:

    Why not try the Tomlin approach? I’m hoping Folk can come back from the two misses but why not go for two. Still kick the long field goals unles it’s less than 2 yards, let’s go for it. The defense has been playing well so far, let’s put our faith in them.

  180. NJBucsFan Says:

    @NFLNut I’m right there with you

  181. unbelievable Says:

    Could use a turnover right here.

  182. cmurda Says:

    In case anybody was wondering where our D Line was on the last play, they were all on the ground.

  183. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Why are the Giants running the ball? Beyond me

  184. BuccoDav Says:

    Who’s 91?

  185. NFLNut Says:

    Dalvin finishes his rookie year averaging 4.8 yards per carry and 111 yards from scrimmage per game … great back … injuries suck 🙁

  186. DB55 Says:

    Just want to point that the first goal stand in ages and me ice isn’t in the game. Who wants ice cream?

  187. unbelievable Says:

    Ayes stepping up in the run game!

  188. tmaxcon Says:


    1 good drive does not erase all the soft plays and injuries to your career loser super hero

  189. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The good defense on display so far does not change the fact that the offense needs to score points.

  190. Rrsrq Says:

    Let’s hope these 4 points don’t come back to bite us, specially Eli with the clean pocket, mostly

  191. unbelievable Says:

    DB u serious bro? McCoy been making plays all game.

  192. King C Says:

    It was never about D Cook vs Howard. I just wanted a good RB lower in draft like Kamara, Hunt
    And it’s not fitting that a guy tears his ACL

  193. BuccoDav Says:

    O.J.. You gotta go up for that.

  194. orlbucfan Says:

    4 missed kicking points-not good. Offense has to play well.

  195. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Jameis threw one, the Giants just dropped it

  196. cmurda Says:

    Wow. That was an ole on the blitz and nearly a pick. Look at that Mike Smith. Blitzes work.

  197. LakeLandBuc Says:

    This game is far from over, remember 2012, when Eli threw for over 500 against us

  198. unbelievable Says:

    Defense gotta step up here. Don’t let them back in the game!

  199. King C Says:

    Looks like Deshaun Watson v Kareem Hunt for ROY

  200. JameisDungy Says:

    I’ve finally figured out the issue. We become very predictable when throwing out of the shotgun. However, Jameis is much better under center when its off play action. Play action only works if the running game is going well.


  201. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    That’s my defense…missing tackles

  202. cmurda Says:

    Our defense is getting roasted. Somebody make a play

  203. CitruscountyBUC Says:

    Don’t know if anyone saw, but Mariotta left the game in the 3rd. We complain about jameis but at least he can stand up to the NFL game

  204. unbelievable Says:

    4 missed tackles on that?


  205. cmurda Says:

    Giants holding every play. Here we go with the no calls on the opposition.

  206. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Robert McClain another ex-Falcon on the roster

  207. SB Says:

    Can anyone tell me why Grimes and VH3 are playing 9 yards off?

  208. sorryitriggeredyou Says:


  209. LakeLandBuc Says:

    A Turtle running for a TD

  210. cmurda Says:

    Eli Manning just ran in a TD. This D Line is a humiliation to real D Lines. Mike Smith sucks

  211. Rod Munch Says:

    Lets see how Dirk responds… I’m guessing a run up the middle on 1st down…

  212. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  213. NFLNut Says:

    Mariota may miss games too … mouthed “I heard it pop” on the sideline from what I understand … sad, he’s a wonderful young man … he’s not JW as an on-field star but he’s a good kid.

  214. BuccoDav Says:

    Beckwith was stuck on the wrong side of the field.

  215. Joel Says:

    So tired of soccer players determining outcomes of football games.

  216. unbelievable Says:

    That’s just pathetic.

  217. pit Says:

    our def does SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    letting Eli score a rushing TD???????

  218. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Anyone for another 3 and out?

  219. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Why do the defensive linemen keep running themselves out of the play? This is not team defense.

  220. NFLNut Says:

    Sure would be nice to have 17 points right now instead of 13 … thanks Nick Folk 🙁

  221. King C Says:

    Well we always expected Giants to score… we just gotta outscore them.
    Keep hitting those TE’s

  222. Rrsrq Says:

    Why the heck was the safety 20yards off the ball on the pass to Shepherd

  223. Joel Says:

    Refs not calling holding. Easy way to rig games.

  224. WeAreLost Says:

    That’s something

  225. Easy Denman Says:

    This defense is pitiful. Blitz and still can’t get to the QB. That’s on you Licht. Gerald McCoy is the only guy causing disruption

  226. TeddyTB Says:

    The D definitely looked tired on that last drive. This might get messy lets see what coach does

  227. NFLNut Says:

    But hey, if we end up losing by a Field Goal it will give ignorant nuts like LakeLandBuc a way to rip on Jameis as usual …

  228. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The offense also looks uninspired. Let’s get the momentum back!

  229. JonBuc Says:

    When you don’t bury a team when you can…you lose. What a blown opportunity.

  230. LakeLandBuc Says:

    That’s why I have so much respect for guys like Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, Brett Favre, Eli Manning. They played the game and didn’t miss any time

  231. unbelievable Says:

    Can we see some slants and crossing patterns here? Some running back screens? Let’s eat some clock and score a damn TD!

  232. BuccoDav Says:

    Quit throwing it behind the damn receiver!

  233. NFLNut Says:

    Giants have run FORTY-ONE plays already … our defense could be dog tired by the 4th quarter … and with the two missed kicks, this game is looking scary

  234. cmurda Says:

    I’m getting a little sick of D Jack’s weak efforts and whining. Catch the ball.

  235. Rod Munch Says:

    HOLY JESUS, Dirk is SERIOUZ today, he didn’t run it up the middle on 1st down…

    In fact the team hasn’t ran it up the middle now 3 times on first and they’ve had 2 TDs and a DJax dropped 1st down ball.

    Meanwhile on the other 88 plays they’ve gotten 4 yards.

  236. Easy Denman Says:

    Finally a 3rd down conversion!!

  237. Rod Munch Says:

    Anyone bagging on Winston today, you really should just be dropped into a pit of fire as you’re just a worthless piece of garbage. Winston is playing great today.

  238. BuccoDav Says:

    JW threw 2 passes behind DJax…one he caught, the other should have been an int. Dad has every right to complain, that could have been a td if it was placed properly.

  239. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Rod Munch Winston has done really well, play calling is horrible last 2 series.

  240. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Bucco, go drink a gallon of drano, you’re too worthless to live.

    God bless.

  241. John Ensch Says:

    I have turned the game off once the Bucs allowed a 900 year old Qb to score. This is starting to look pathetic so can’t watch it anymore. Jameis can’t get the ball to any receivers and the running game is going nowhere. I see a big defeat coming today and maybe the Glazers will finally see that the GM and Coach are responsible.

  242. NFLNut Says:

    Rod Munch … Winston is a great QB, period … it’s just that he’s 23 years old

  243. BuccoDav Says:

    Munch… nobody takes what you say seriously. Just thouhht you should know…

  244. Rod Munch Says:

    sorryitriggeredyou – Agreed, typical of Dirk going into a shell once he’s up by 3 points. Glad to see they came out trying to move the ball here and didn’t just run it up the middle 3 times like Dirk normally does.

  245. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    offense isn’t that great. All the hype of how they were so explosive. Only got it in little stretches. They aren’t that scary. Especially when you can’t run the ball at all

  246. Dooshlarue Says:

    Charles Simms……speed in space.

  247. Easy Denman Says:

    What a play by Winston to Evans!

  248. BuccoDav Says:

    There is a great throw that deserves recognition!

  249. cmurda Says:

    Great throw by JW and catch by M.E. I dop think he’s down at the 1 though.

  250. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – I see you didn’t take my advice since you’re here. Well the sun is still out, I’m sure there’s plenty of Sunday only glory holes that would love the feel of your mouth.

    Anywho touchdown you dolt, now go hit the interstate rest stops while it’s halftime.

  251. NFLNut Says:

    Rich Sauers Jr … there isn’t an offense in the NFL that is all the “scary” yet … Matt Ryan is on pace for 20 TDs and 20 PICKS this year and Julio hasn’t scored a single TD yet

  252. unbelievable Says:

    Scramble for 4 yards?

    Nah I’ll just throw a TD instead.

    Feel like refs are gonna f us though.

  253. BuccoDav Says:

    Wow, Munch…Freud would have a field day with you.

  254. King C Says:

    Wow.. JW could have easily run for the first down, but he caught the DB peaking and threw the strike to Evans
    Great play !

  255. cmurda Says:

    Why not let the time come down and not take the timeout?

  256. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucco, is Freud your “friend” or partner?

  257. unbelievable Says:

    10 second run off because the call changes is also the dumbest rule. WTF?

  258. unbelievable Says:

    Agreed. Should have taken the 10 run off we got penny of time.

  259. JameisDungy Says:

    Jameis…you have to stop under throwing these deep passes.

  260. Rod Munch Says:

    The one time Dirk should just run it up the gut he does a pitch play… ugh… Dirk just isn’t a good playcaller from the field.

  261. cmurda Says:

    Dumb dumb playcall. Pitch it 5 yards back when they expect the run. Takes a timeout after the play to Evans. This is common sense here Dirk.

  262. lurker Says:


  263. Rrsrq Says:

    Trying to feed ME and OJ wide open

  264. lurker Says:

    this will suck

  265. cmurda Says:

    This is the kind of stuff that leaves you scratching your head with Dirk. You call a timeout and give the Giants more time if you score, then you pitch it back 5 yards and then you throw a fade route. Terrible terrible coaching by Dirk.

  266. jugheadfla Says:

    wow….speechless…..f-ing terrible

  267. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This one is on Dirk…….

  268. sorryitriggeredyou Says:


  269. cmurda Says:

    I’m burnt over Dirk’s failure for the obvious here.

  270. Big Stinky Says:

    Why can’t James score inside the 10 yard line?

  271. JameisDungy Says:

    Horrible play calling by Dirk.

    HOrrible execution from Jameis.

  272. Destinjohnny Says:

    Oj was wide open on 2nd down
    D jack was wide open on 3rd

  273. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Kicker finally made one!

    If Barber is the biggest back, why didn’t the use him there?

  274. Dave Says:

    That was horrendous.
    First and goal inside the one. You run it up the damn gut over and over. four times if needed.

    I do not like to second-guess play calling, but that was bad. You don’t run wide then passed twice.

    That was BS

  275. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:

    I said this before and I’ll say it again. Dirk Koetter ain’t the answer

  276. King C Says:

    Why do teams insist on calling fade routes from the 1 all the time
    The completion rate has gotta be about 10%

  277. Architek Says:

    I’m starting to have reservations about Jameis

  278. unbelievable Says:

    The whole world knew he was going to Evans on that play.

    Jackson was coming open in the back of the end zone on the next one.

    Missed opportunities. We’ve left 8 points out there so far.

  279. Rod Munch Says:

    Can we just say Drik stinks as a playcaller since becoming head coach? You have it at the half yard line and you run a toss pitch and then throw it twice? That’s awful terrible play calling. Dirk runs it up the middle 90% of the time when the game is anywhere close to close, then when it matters most he tries to get “tricky”. He’s just awful at calling plays from field level, everything he did so great in 2015 he does terrible last year and this year.

  280. mike10 Says:

    Can we admit that Jamie’s kinda blows a little?

  281. JonBuc Says:

    Dirk loves the toss sweep from the 1/2 yard line. That will cost the game like the 24 point lead they blew to Washington ( you like that?! ) But…but he’s The Godfather! Back to Mom’s basement/spare room y’all!

  282. NFLNut Says:

    Jameis has more yards and TDs at half than Dak/Stafford/Wentz averaged in their 3 full games against this Giants defense … and the Bucs should have 20 points (had Folk not missed the two kicks) which is just about what the Cowboys/Lions/Eagles averaged against the Giants in their full games … not bad but I sure wish it was 20-10 instead of 16-10 … still a very scary game as the Bucs defense has got to be winded

  283. Easy Denman Says:

    Well atleast we got 3 before halftime and get the ball to start the 3rd

  284. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Should be 24-10

  285. mike10 Says:

    At the stadium and everyone is looking at each other saying “you can’t hit Evans in the end zone on a play you run weekly”

  286. NFLNut Says:

    We should be up 24-10 if not for Folk’s two misses and some dreadful play-calling at the end of the half …

  287. Please Says:

    Everything about this offense except ME13 is so unimpressive and beyond disappointing

  288. SB Says:

    McCoy AGAIN when it counts

  289. BucsFan90 Says:

    Koetter is a terrible play caller

  290. mike10 Says:

    Also, our D line (less 93) is garbage!

  291. NFLNut Says:

    Please … come on man … Jameis has shredded this Giants D and we have 16 (should be 20-24) at half against a top notch Giants D … also had we had Doug which we would have had it not been for the Dolphins game being delayed, I think we’d be gashing em on the ground and have another TD at the end of the half too … R-E-L-A-X

  292. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @mike10 I bet. seeeesh

  293. JonBuc Says:

    Has Dirk ever run a QB sneak?! Just a toss sweep to an undersized back.

  294. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Should be 24-10, but as long as the Bucs are ahead…

  295. JameisDungy Says:

    Koetter becoming HC has made him a worse play caller.

    If Jameis had a little more patience he finds Desean open in the back of the end zone.

    Desean is teetering on blowing up from not getting the ball. You can see him seething from it.

  296. SB Says:

    Hey Tmax!……….I want to hear you call 93 out!

  297. jugheadfla Says:

    shredded this defense? I think that is some serious hyperbole

  298. Dreambig Says:

    Koetter could not be a worse play caller. You have 1st down on the 1/2 yard line, and you pitch back 9 yards. How F*ing stupid is that. Incompressible! STUPID STUPID STUPID! Thats like a brand new high school coach play call.

  299. Rrsrq Says:

    Jameis needs to learn patience in the red zone, plenty of time for something to develop. Too many points left on the field.

  300. Easy Denman Says:

    We gotta establish the run in the second half.

  301. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No Sacks….No Turnovers…..Missed Kicks….Bad Placalling on the Goal line…

    Bucs should be way ahead….at least 24-10

  302. JonBuc Says:

    Relax?! Giants will score at will in the 2nd half. It’ll take a miracle or two for the Bucs to hang on for dear life/knuckle.

  303. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Easy Denman absolutely. Take it out of 10’s hands for as long as possible.

  304. mike10 Says:

    Can’t believe we have no sacks on defense to this point. Eli has all the time back there.

  305. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    WTF with the negativity? We are winning. We scored 16 points in the first half. Jameis has 190 yards passing and two TD’s. Rogers is averaging nearly six yards per carry and we have nearly 250 yards of offense in the first half. Good freaking grief.

  306. cmurda Says:

    Um, are you guys watching the game that are complaining about JW. He’s had 3 balls dropped and 1 would have been his 3rd TD of the game with no picks or sacks against a way better D Line than we have. I swear JW could throw for 600 yards and 8 TD’s and half of you would be whining about him not getting his 9th TD.

  307. JameisDungy Says:

    Here is what makes Koetter’s goal line play calling more absurd.

    The Giants are vulnerable against the run especially up the middle.

    Why toss it?

    Also if you’re going to throw it…USE PLAY ACTION!!!!! A simple roll out and its an easy TD.

  308. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Dreambig Stupid indeed. If you toss sweep on the one, give it to the guy that the best at that in Sims. Play calling is horrible today.

  309. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    NFL Nut ok, but everyone acted like they were dope. I’m not even sure what your point is. This team looks like trash. Can’t run the ball so we have a lopsided offense that other teams can predict. No pressure from the d-line. You shouldn’t be giving up 14 yd td runs to Eli. Or have your db’s playing 10 yes off when we got lit up last week. I doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know if you give them a cushion they’ll catch the ball short and be able to maybe run past our guys. You might want to get involved in a different conversation. I’m not interested in dialoging with someone making excuses just cause other teams aren’t having scary offenses. You have no clue.

  310. Bucamania Says:

    OJ with a TD. Dalvin Cook torn ACL. Guess that talk can stop for awhile.

  311. jugheadfla Says:

    we’ll see how this goes, looks like there is some more weather headed toward the stadium

  312. g720 Says:

    When is Smith going to learn that he has to blitz with this defense. This defense is going to be exhausted by the end of the game. Come on Smith, give them some help as the time of possession is ridiculous in NY ‘s favor.

  313. unbelievable Says:

    Defense needs just a bit more pressure. They can’t relent at all.

    Need to keep pounding the rock and utilizing the shirt passes as they both eat clock. Jameis and Koetter both need to sharpen up in the red zone in their respective duties.

  314. Easy Denman Says:

    As I figured, Erick Flowers looks like a prime Walter Jones out there today

  315. unbelievable Says:

    *short passes

  316. Rod Munch Says:

    Well they held the Giants to 10 points in the first half – that is huge. Did OBJ come back into the game after leaving, I didn’t notice on the last drive? If not that’s huge. I don’t get how Eli doesn’t see the tape from last week and just throw wherever Grimes is not, and it seems like Grimes was mostly on Marshall. We’ll see if there are any halftime adjustments, but with our corners still playing 15 yards off the line I’d expect the Giants to come out and just dink and dunk or if OBJ is back to get it to him short and let him break tackles. However the Giants coaches are awful from everything I read so perhaps they’ll just come out and keep doing what they’ve been doing.

    From the offensive side the Bucs are moving the ball at will when they are not completely predictable. So with that said I assume Dirk’s halftime adjustment will be to come out and run the ball more, up the middle, but only if it’s not at the 1 yard line. He’ll try to play protect the lead with a 6 point lead. That’s my guess, I hope Dirk for once proves me wrong. However the defense is playing well, so perhaps that gets it done in something like a 19-17 win.

  317. NFLNut Says:

    jugheadfla … YES, SHREDDED … Stafford had 122 pass yards in his full game against these Giants … Jameis has 190 and 2 TDs at half-time!

  318. Defense Rules Says:

    If not for 4 explosive plays (thank you Giants) we’d be in serious doodoo. Koetter is calling yet another mediocre game IMO & Jameis’ inaccuracy is reaching new heights. Combine that with no DLine pressure on Eli and Folk’s misses and we’re incredibly lucky to be ahead by 6 pts at half (thanks to even worse play-calling & defense by the Giants). Very frustrating first half.

  319. unbelievable Says:

    Rod- OBJ did come back. And Marshall will be back in 2nd half.

  320. Rod Munch Says:

    unbelievable – Thanks… and that stinks. Maybe OBJ will throw a huge hissy fit at halftime and punch the wall and break his hand completely.

  321. NFLNut Says:

    People complaining about this offense are nuts … 250 yards and what should be at least 20 points if not for two missed kicks on 30 plays … that is AWESOME!

    Yes, Koetter screwed the pooch on the 1st and goal and Folk ha sucked so far but the offense is balling!

    The defense however has been on the field a ton and may be dog tired in the 2nd half … the Giants are in fine position to earn their first win … we’ll see what happens.

  322. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    It doesn’t take a genius to understand its hard to get sacks when you play your corners 10 yds off. they can get rid of the ball quicker and give us less time to get to the qb. Cant believe nfl defensive minds can’t figure that out. if the other receivers weren’t allowed to run free, the qb would have to actually work to find open targets.

  323. Rod Munch Says:

    Defense Rules – Except for all the huge plays on offense we would have none and all would be lost. LOL! Spoken like a try d-bag.

    Do me a favor and go take a long walk off a short pier.

  324. King C Says:

    Let’s just get this win
    I like our chances for Thursday night
    If ever there’s a good time to catch the Patriots it’s now
    4 straight 300yd games by QBs!

  325. Cgmaster Says:

    Jameis has 2tds and almost 200 yards against a very good defense and some of you are still bitching.

  326. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @King C next 2 games are huge. They need to get THIS one. It’s prime for the taking. Gonna be a huge pride hit to drop a game against an 0 and 3 team.

  327. bucnut2 Says:

    Lack of a TD is on DK. how about a QB sneak?

  328. JonBuc Says:

    Huge opening drive of 2nd half upcoming…whatcha got, Dirk?

  329. Please Says:

    This O should be putting up 35 points a game easily, but the play calling, run blocking, and Jameis’s accuracy have been pedestrian. Same number of offensive touchdowns as their mediocre opponents. Disappointing.

  330. Architek Says:

    I just don’t know if Jameis can make the right reads in critical situation to take the step into the next level of quarterbacks.

    I’m not saying he’s bad or a bust – but I’m just growing more concerned about his decision making.

  331. Cgmaster Says:

    Yeah cannot figure it why koetter doesn’t like the qb sneak.

  332. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Hope I don’t jinx them but we are doing pretty good on the penalty front.

  333. BuccoDav Says:

    It’s amazing how little people complain about the playcalling when the players execute properly.

  334. NFLNut Says:

    Architek …. you’re certifiable … Jameis is the best and most accomplished QB of his age in the history of football … chill

  335. NFLNut Says:

    MARIOTA to undergo MRI Monday … projected to miss at least one game … Julio Jones hurt today, Dalvin Cook expected to be out for the entire year … injuries suck!

  336. NFLNut Says:

    TODD GURLEY looks like a legit OPOY/MVP candidate so far this year … I doubt that lasts but he’s been amazing so far this year

  337. Easy Denman Says:

    Nice play calling and conversions so far on this drive now let’s finish it with 7!

  338. Easy Denman Says:

    Dotson looks like a monster today

  339. BuccoDav Says:

    Nut… Rothlisberger won a Super Bowl at 23. I hope JW does also but stats don’t mean anything compared to that.

  340. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Easy Denman against JPP too.

  341. TeddyTB Says:

    The way the giant’s players are dropping left and right we might be able to gain some separation on the scoreboard, hopefully.

  342. cmurda Says:

    Lets finish this drive. The offense is going to have to put points up and wear out the Giant defense. I’m not that confident in our defense without a pass rush

  343. SB Says:

    Just wondering where all the inbred GMC haters are today.

  344. Rrsrq Says:

    Giants d-line going down, c’mon Bucs

  345. cmurda Says:

    My God Marpet with these effing snaps. It should be the easiest part of playing center. This is garbage dude.

  346. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Smart move Jameis. Hate it but great decision.

  347. jugheadfla Says:


  348. Easy Denman Says:

    Folk off you can kicker!!!

  349. cmurda Says:

    Find a kicker. We are going to lose because of this sorry ass kicker.

  350. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Pin them deep win that field position.

  351. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I said all along. Folk sucks.

  352. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  353. JameisDungy Says:

    Dirk’s play calling when we close…

    Another Jason Licht special.

  354. Gencoimports Says:

    Unbelievable! Bring back Aguayo!

    No I don’t really mean that, but this is ridiculous!

  355. WeAreLost Says:

    Okay this is fuked

  356. Bucs Says:

    I hate kickers. All of them. Every single one.

  357. Rrsrq Says:

    What the freak….

  358. Big Stinky Says:

    Another wasted drive

  359. TeddyTB Says:

    I mean damn lets get a kicker from a local high school or something

  360. Rod Munch Says:

    Roberto is a free agent.

  361. cmurda Says:

    Another drive that ends worthless. Too many runs Dirk. Too many garbage snaps Marpet and Folk sucks. This is the blueprint in how to lose a game. 7 points off the board because of no kicker.

  362. TeddyTB Says:

    We need an INT asap

  363. King C Says:

    What’s wrong with Ali Marpet’s snaps

  364. cmurda Says:

    All day long to throw. Zero adjustments. No pressure. Same crap different game.

  365. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    We should have 23 points right now. But…Folk.

  366. Rod Munch Says:

    Roberto didn’t cost the Bucs a single game last year, he managed to only miss kicks when it didn’t matter.

  367. Bucs Says:

    Bucs are trying as hard as possible to give it away.

  368. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Licht has some splain’in to do

  369. Matts17 Says:

    Bring in another kicker this week. Folk proving to be just too unreliable.

  370. cmurda Says:

    Holding offense for the 15th time. No call.

  371. Please Says:

    Not to mention moving Marpet to C — why? O-line was a bright spot last year and they tinker with it. Hawley was no future HOFer, but jeez the +/- of that move has been awful.

  372. Rojas Says:

    VH3 getting picked on bad.

  373. JameisDungy Says:

    These two teams look like teams that decided to make their OC’s head coaches.

  374. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Please supposedly Hawley was awful last year.

  375. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith is getting owned and our defense is worn out. This is a disaster scene. All the hype for this team and nothing but being outcoached especially Mike Smith.

  376. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    17-16 coming up

  377. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey the Giants just realized the Bucs are missing 2 pro-bowl linebackers and a pro-bowl safety.

  378. cmurda Says:

    Hawley was terrible. Marpet’s snaps have been his only issue but a big issue.

  379. unbelievable Says:

    Man we’re just trying to give this game away Huh?

  380. cmurda Says:

    Eli for 10 seconds back there and a ridiculous catch by Marshall. Again, that’s on our pathetic D Line.

  381. Maxx619 Says:

    The D Line is killing us and keeping Eli in the game. Wtf

  382. Bangkok Buc Says:


  383. jugheadfla Says:

    Folk my life

  384. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    I have no clue why we play our corners off with such a cushion. Makes no sense.

  385. cmurda Says:

    Holding against Spence. No call.

  386. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Uh oh

  387. Mord Says:

    Tandy was carted off the field .. for what that’s worth

  388. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Defense just doesn’t have any heart

  389. Big Stinky Says:

    Gotta love a REAL quarterback

  390. Bucs Says:


  391. Rrsrq Says:

    Dam Kicker

  392. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    We’ll probably give the giants their first win of the season.

  393. Oj "I Got The Juice" Howard Says:

    At this point the Bucs don’t deserve to win

  394. cmurda Says:

    You could just feel this happening with Folk sucking ass and Dirk screwing the pooch before the half ended.

  395. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Mord Fak well there you go. Injuries and now come the pressure picks from JW.

  396. Easy Denman Says:

    This defense is pathetic. D-Line is a freaking joke outside of McCoy, and that on Licht.

  397. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    This team ain’t nothing. Not seeing it.

  398. Maxx619 Says:

    Reyes, too soft in the get offs for the CBs and GD Folk killed us today.

  399. BucsFan90 Says:

    Terrible playcalling on both sides of the ball smh

  400. Spicoli Says:

    Where’s the pass rush?!

  401. bucnut2 Says:

    we will lose this one

  402. Architek Says:

    Missed FGs and miscommunication and bad playcalling and missed throws and more – Bucs Are Down against a team with a bad OL

  403. Bucs Says:

    The Bucs literally play not to win.

    How is it possible?

    How can the play calling on offense and defense be any worse?

  404. mark2001 Says:

    No way we could end up in the basement of our division, as I said during a time of clarity when we didn’t give Peterson a sniff and some of you were saying NO was a laughing stock. 99% of the time I drank the Koolaid too. But I’m starting to wonder.

  405. Easy Denman Says:

    Damn I was wondering what happened to Tandy. What injury was it?

  406. Rod Munch Says:

    So the Giants made halftime adjustments, realizing that the Bucs have garbage at LB and S and CB (outside of Grimes). Lets see Dirk’s halftime adjustments.

    Oh wait, we saw them, instead of running up the middle on first down, last time out he ran outside on 1st down (for 2 yards with Barber).

    That will show em…

  407. Maxx619 Says:

    Yes, too soft in the get offs for the CBs and GD Folk killed us today.

  408. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Ol Jason Licht great job building that defense

  409. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Come on Jameis. Need you now buddy

  410. Cgmaster Says:

    A real qb big stinky? Get a life. You one of those mariota boys? Upset he’s injured again maybe?

  411. lurker Says:

    lol at bucs and fans

  412. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Today is our season.

  413. Bucs1856 Says:

    This is so reminiscent of the Rams game last year. Rain, missed extra points, missed field goals and sloppy seoond half defense. That game cost us our playoff spot last year. If we lose this game it will be the one that got away again.

  414. TeddyTB Says:

    Coaches are off on lunch for this game. This is ridiculous

  415. Bucamania Says:

    Bad snaps. Jumping offsides. Drops. Missed kicks. VH3 not covering anyone. WTF.

  416. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    no d-line push. Its the same thing every year.

  417. cmurda Says:

    Playcalling has been good sans Dirk taking the timeout and then the 5 yard pitch before the half. Our defensive line is garbage and Folk killed this team. Barth should still be kicking.

  418. ARGH_M8E Says:

    It’s a BUCS life.

  419. Rojas Says:

    This team has too much talent, to be getting beat up like this. Horrible offensive play calling. Terrible kicker, joke of a Dline outside of McCoy. VH3 with too much cushion.

  420. Defense Rules Says:

    Sad. Giants offensively are doing to us what we should’ve been doing to them all game.

  421. g720 Says:

    Keep rushing 4 guys Smith you freaking idiot. Give Manning all day to throw the ball. You and Koetter are both outmatched by the other coaches.

  422. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs will be fine if Dirk just stops being so predictable and actually mixes it up. The Giants were going to score on offense, the Bucs are down too many players for that not to be the case. But the Bucs have a good offense if they can get some decent coaching and play calling and not be so incredibly predictable.

    The Giants will keep scoring, there is little doubt of that, the question is if Dirk thinks he can win on FGs or not, and so far this game he does.

  423. King C Says:

    What was wrong with Connor Barth again

  424. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Bad team losing to a bad team. At least we know who they are. No getting around it shart sandwich all around. Maybe they’ll get lucky and pull this out.

  425. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Giants have a terrible OL and we still can’t get them. Haha…

  426. Mord Says:

    Tandy’s injury appeared to be left hip or groin

    (I’m at the sideline behind the Bucs’ bench)

  427. Rrsrq Says:

    Is it a real QB or is it a center that keeps the timing off on 3rd & 4 with a low snap

  428. lurker Says:

    via greg auman

    Bucs say safety Keith Tandy has a hip injury, questionable to return. Rookie Justin Evans was on defense at end of last drive …

    With Ward inactive and Tandy injured, Bucs essentially have two safeties in Chris Conte and Justin Evans for rest of the game …

  429. Defense Rules Says:

    cmurda, Bucs play-calling has been horrible. Big plays because of Giants defensive breakdowns are what’ve kept us in this game.

  430. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Who is the top DE to be drafted next year. This keeps up, we’re gonna be drafting top 10

  431. TeddyTB Says:

    Man Cmurda Matt Brian should still be kicking honestly. It’s been down hill with kickers ever since.

  432. Big Stinky Says:

    Winston gets another chance to put the team on his shoulders

  433. Redtop5588 Says:


  434. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @lurker Done. Get ya forks out or will JW take this game over?

  435. Joel Says:

    Ballgame. That’s what happens when you rely on a soccer player for your points.

  436. Aaron Says:

    D is tired – can’t leave points on the field…I think every team is just going to throw 50x against us.

  437. bucnut2 Says:

    here comes the TO machine

  438. Redtop5588 Says:

    Seriously 2 missed fg a missed extra point An we can’t get 1 yes on the goal one pull it out plz I’m begging y’all

  439. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Triple coverage….good thing there was an overthrow…

  440. cmurda Says:

    I admit that JW still can’t throw a deep ball. Never even gives his receiver a chance. Unacceptable. And I’m a big JW fan

  441. EA Says:

    This is where jaboo shines at throwing picks to seal the victory for the Giants

  442. g720 Says:

    Jameis, one throw behind the guy and typically 4 yds over the head of a deep throw.

  443. JameisDungy Says:

    What the hell is Dirk doing with this play calling.

    NO team has thrown for over 200 yards against them. Yes we had a good half, but damn we need to RUN THE BALL.

  444. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Good night.

  445. LongSeason Says:

    Item 1. I’m asking the stick carriers a favor. Our kicking game sucks. Please show up in force to block the special teams coach, kicking coach and Nick Folk from entering the team facility. They are fired. The only thing Nick Folk can kick is grass, and I’m not sure he isn’t missing grass either.

    Item 2. The Buccaneer’s cannot find a pass rush and I’m sure they couldn’t buy a sack if they were on sale 2 for 1. Please fire our defensive line coach. Don’t let him in the building. Blocking his entry should be easy since hi line can’t get into the opposing team’s backfield to find their quarterback.

    Item 3. Marpet and Sweezy should be our right and left guards. Can’t afford errant snaps on third and short.

    Item 4. Can we play the Bears every week? We end up 8-8.

  446. bucnut2 Says:

    WE are done

  447. Joel Says:

    What a joke this team is.

  448. Bucs Says:

    Well it’s over!!! Giants will score on the next drive and seal it.

  449. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @EA we know this.

  450. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Ball Game

  451. Destinjohnny Says:

    Jameis isn’t a bust by any stretch
    But…. He has Accuracey problems and he kinda always has

  452. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Have we blitzed at all….doesn’t seem like it.

  453. cmurda Says:

    We are done. Bumbling idiots right now getting outcoached by a team that is banged up with no O Line. We are still the crap Bucs and yes, Dirk will likely be on the hot seat. Terrible coaching especially from M Smith. His defense needs to be held accountable and it’s his fault with his pathetic predictable, no pressure-having defense. Eff this crap.

  454. DBS Says:

    Kicker ? Where is the high flying offense? 12 points as usual and counting on FG’s!!

  455. Big Stinky Says:

    What a joke! Waste a play throwing deep

  456. Born again Bucs fan Says:


  457. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Crap Show 2 weeks in a row….soon to be Three.

  458. bucnut2 Says:

    DK screwed up by not calling QB sneak on the 1 yard line

  459. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    D Smith garbage LT… no running game, secondary sucks, DL does nothing… licht signs a FA crybaby WR….. basically licht just been rearranging deck chairs on titanic

  460. The Anomaly Says:

    Pathetic play after the 1st quarter

  461. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    I’m shocked on that first drive second half they went to Folk. Take the faking field position. Man I miss Dungy sometimes even Gruden would have taken the punt with a suspect kicker.

  462. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We need a turnover in the worst way…..won’t happen without pressure.

  463. jugheadfla Says:

    can’t even get one first down, yea he is really shredding this defense @NFLNUT

  464. THETRUTH Says:

    Bucs revive any teams struggles, if your bad in area you play Tampa and you will dominate

  465. Say What? Says:

    If anyone is wondering how you generate a pass rush when you can’t otherwise do it with your front 4, please watch the giants 3rd down blitz on that last play. Maybe Mike Smith was watching. Probably not.

  466. Rod Munch Says:

    Here’s a hint Dirk, it’s free advice so take it for what it’s worth…

    If you spend the entire game setting up the fact you’re going to run on 1st down… and you want to pass… try a playaction pass and not coming out in a shotgun empty backfield.

    You see Dirk, when you come out in a shotgun empty backfield you’re telling the other team you’re not going to run the ball.

    Yet you spent the whole game setting up the fact you’re going to run on first down…

    Do you get it?!? Like if you fake the run and then pass you’re giving yourself a better shot.

    This is like 1st year Madden rookie level physiology here.

  467. Pit Says:

    It sounds like it’s a giants home game from the TV. Not sure what it is but why Winston can’t complete a single pass???

  468. Gencoimports Says:

    Why are we abandoning the running game?!?

  469. GrudenForPresident Says:

    Winston is trash! You think we can trade him for Case Keenum?

  470. TeddyTB Says:

    Ok somebody on the D has to step up this drive

  471. Born again Bucs fan Says:

    Winston can’t throw deep. What’s a run game? OR a pass rush for that matter? BUt you know what we do have?!? Cushion. 10 yard cushion

  472. unbelievable Says:

    Jameis was limping after that sack.

  473. cmurda Says:

    Pick up your jock strap VH3 and stop giving 10 yards to the receivers. Hello Mike Smith coach somebody you reject

  474. g720 Says:

    Say What! Exactly what this team doesn’t do like other NFL teams who bilitz 50% of the time. Mike Smith doesn’t know what he is doing.

  475. GrudenForPresident Says:

    You know you’re a bad team when Brandon Marshall shines on you!

  476. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Tell me more about how great Licht is?

  477. cmurda Says:

    Licht? It’s not Licht’s fault that Mike Smith is a waste.

  478. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This defense is garbage

  479. jugheadfla Says:

    blatant hold on GMC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  480. cmurda Says:

    Holding Giants. That’s the 17th time.

  481. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    like I said. play off 10yds and give them a catch and can’t tackle to stop the first down. Its too easy.

  482. IndianaBuc Says:


  483. Joel Says:

    Giants hold on every play.

  484. jugheadfla Says:

    had him in a choke hold!

  485. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Giants have worst OL in football how cant they get to eli

  486. Bangkok Buc Says:

    We can’t stop em on 3rd down.

  487. Rrsrq Says:

    Refs not calling any holding calls

  488. lurker Says:

    our corners are slow, thus the cushion…easier to run up than try and catch up depp

  489. Big Stinky Says:

    Eli’s passes are on the money most times, unlike Winston

  490. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    This defense is terrible. No pass rush at all. This includes McCoy’s second half disappearing act.

  491. lurker Says:

    the bucs are not who we thought they were….not a playoff team as of yet

  492. unbelievable Says:

    Damn I thought the ball came out

  493. g720 Says:

    Please blitz this down Smith. It is amazing what happens when you make Eli hurry his passes.

  494. cmurda Says:

    It’s 3rd and long. Logic tells you to blitz but Mike Smith won’t. I pretty much have gotten pessimistic enough on our defense to expect the first down to be made.

  495. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Cmurder- tell me more about the great pass rush talent Licht has assembled?
    I’ll wait…

  496. Easy Denman Says:

    Well here comes another 3rd down conversion against our defense

  497. Bucs Says:

    Shut the F up about the refs.

    My god. If you wanna find someone to blame how about the team you’re rooting for.

  498. TeddyTB Says:

    Refs acting like they dont see all these damn holding calls

  499. Big Stinky Says:

    Come on defense

  500. Rrsrq Says:

    Dirk needs to go to refs and talk about the freaking holding on their oline, it’s pretty blatant

  501. cmurda Says:

    Stinky. Eli has an hour to throw the ball and JW has about 2 seconds. The Giants made adjustments on defense and per usual Mike Smith failed to.

  502. Rojas Says:

    O-line, and D-line need to be addressed. Also corners.

  503. mark2001 Says:

    Red.. you nailed it. I remember the C. Bears when they were building their SB winning team, and they had the ball inside the opponents 5 and ran the ball four times and didn’t score. They asked Ditka after the game why he did it, and his response was…..if we can’t get a few yards on four running plays, we don’t deserve to win…we can’t beat anyone. In other words, we can’t impose our will on anyone. And maybe that is the size of it, as we used to say.

  504. denjoe Says:

    No penalties on the giants?

  505. IndianaBuc Says:

    A win today would have soften the whipin we get on Thursday, now were looking at 3 straight!!!!

  506. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Wait…I thought Mike Smith was the BEST acquisition we had all off season.

  507. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Mike Smith has nothing to work with

  508. TeddyTB Says:

    @Bucs your’e either blind or an idiot if you can’t see the Giants getting away with holds

  509. THETRUTH Says:

    When is Americas QB gonna put team on shoulders and make things happen.

    And score a dam TD

  510. Dano74 Says:

    Licht needs to draft 4 DE & 3 RB

  511. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs are missing Kwon, David and Ward – plus now Tandy… even with that they’ve given up just 17 points. They’re not the problem today, I expect the Giants to score points when you’re missing 3 pro-bowl players from a defense that has zero depth.

  512. Spicoli Says:

    Can McCoy get a sack with all of his “frustrated” talk?!

  513. unbelievable Says:

    I thought Eli might pick that one up. Yikes.

    D line looks beyond gassed.

  514. WeAreLost Says:


  515. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Now make them pay JW!!!!

  516. unbelievable Says:

    At least they missed the kick.

  517. Bucamania Says:

    I totally jinxed that FG attempt. You’re welcome.

  518. Say What? Says:

    What is that play call?????

  519. TeddyTB Says:

    Now its time to cheer and get ready for this win y’all

  520. unbelievable Says:

    Waste of a down right there Dirk.

  521. Spicoli Says:

    Holy shheeeettt… We might have a chance

  522. cmurda Says:

    One thing about Quiz is he’s a tough dude. Spins off of that big hit.

  523. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Munch, yeah make excuses. That’ll make it all go away. next person has gotta step up. no way this team isn’t getting to Eli, but they aren’t.

  524. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Win or lose, this has been a contest between two very bad football teams. Here we go again.

  525. denjoe Says:

    We need some Cb’s as well.

  526. g720 Says:

    Koetter is so predictable.

  527. Big Stinky Says:

    Nice slide kitty

  528. g720 Says:

    Now is the time for us to drop balls.

  529. cmurda Says:

    Evans. wake up man. Jeez this team refuses to get it going.

  530. Bobby Says:

    We’re still a long way from being contenders. I’m really beginning to question the creativity of the play calling.

  531. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Please let this be incomplete!

  532. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs never get a break ever, so of course the Giants will win this challenge.

  533. cmurda Says:

    Blame Winston all you want. That was drop #5

  534. Architek Says:

    I don’t like Winston decision to run the ball when you had two WRs open

  535. Rrsrq Says:

    I will be surprised if this goes our way

  536. denjoe Says:

    Replay hates us!!!

  537. cmurda Says:

    I disagree on the playcalling being an issue when guys are dropping passes everywhere. Dirk can’t be out there making the catch for these guys.

  538. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, you wouldn’t think the NFL would let a NY team go 0-4…

    Well I still don’t think they will – they’ll call some BS to make up for this.

  539. Scott Says:

    If the Bucs can get the lead it just feels like they could take the game over with one simple sack by the defense. Eli is just ripe for a sack that could turn the momentum completely in the Bucs favor and get the crowd in the game. I don’t want to hear about holding–how can they not be getting any sacks against this horrible offensive line?

  540. GrudenForPresident Says:

    Cmon boys pull it together we got this

  541. cmurda Says:

    Don’t know what Evans is doing but it is not good.

  542. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    O Line playing like $hit

  543. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Bucs are terrible. They aren’t giving themselves many chances. You gotta make them when you have them.

  544. g720 Says:

    Have we ever blitzed like that?

  545. cmurda Says:

    That effort by Hump may give us a chance to go for it. Please dont kick this

  546. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This is for the game

  547. Big Stinky Says:

    Why was there no short pass on that blitz?

  548. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    how do bucs not have hot reads when he sees a blitz?

  549. cmurda Says:

    Now that was a stupid decision by JW. Rushed it. This team is not good.

  550. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:


  551. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Munch now blaming refs. Wow, you know this team is junk right?

  552. mike10 Says:

    A lot of weapons on offense, problem is that they all go thru Winston

  553. Architek Says:

    That maybe the game.

  554. sorryitriggeredyou Says:


  555. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m done. I’m bout to cancel my Sunday ticket. Waste of $. Hump was wide open on the right

  556. mike10 Says:


  557. cmurda Says:

    I’ll ignore the possible PI call because none of the 20 other holds have been called by the Giants so naturally I expect the refs to not see it

  558. Sydney Says:

    Game Over.

  559. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Handwriting on the wall doesn’t look good……right call to go for it….good defensive play…

  560. Bucamania Says:

    Stop rushing every damn throw!!

  561. Spicoli Says:

    Don’t think the o line is playing terrible. It’s on Jameis to I’d the blitz and get rid of the ball quicker

  562. Bucs Says:

    Stupid as s team. Humphries was wide as sed open.

    For gods sake. Throw it to the most covered guy meanwhile the flat was wide open for the first down.

  563. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    of course we didn’t get the first down. who knew?

  564. Big Stinky Says:

    Into double coverage again it looked like

  565. Matts17 Says:

    What was worse? The play call or the throw to a blanketed receiver.

  566. dave Says:

    why was it so loud on fourth down? absolute disgrace

  567. cmurda Says:

    That’s likely it with how bad Mike Smith has gotten owned. JW played great. Let down by his receivers.

  568. Easy Denman Says:

    This is pathetic. Just wait till Thursday night when Brady comes in here and puts up 50

  569. Rojas Says:

    Winston literally has like 2-3 secs to get rid of the ball. NY rushing LBs, safeties. Meanwhile Mike Smith is sending like 3-4 man rushes.

  570. g720 Says:

    Like someone said earlier, this team is so predictable. Runs when in run formation and passes when in a pass formation. Dirk, you need to go.

  571. Rod Munch Says:

    You kick the FG there…

    Holy s….

    What the f Dirk…

    That’s not saying it after the missed 4th down play, I’m yelling at the TV kick the FG, Folk makes this…

    Then again on 4th and 2 you come out in shotgun eliminating the possibility of a run.

    Dirk stinks.

    Move Mike Smith to HC, make Dirk go back up in the booth – then the team is fixed. Dirk clearly didn’t ever get an NFL HC job before he was 83 for a reason.

  572. Bucs1856 Says:

    Why does Winston love to try and thread the needle!!! Just throw it to the guy wide open on the 5 yard out!!!

  573. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Have to hold them to 3 here.

  574. Rrsrq Says:

    The clock in Jameis head is turrible (in my Charles Barkley voice), he is not going through his progressions when it is not there. He is so much better on the move, I hope Koetter remembers that at some point this season

  575. mike10 Says:

    So much potential, too bad Jameis is horrible

  576. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Nope should of kicked it
    Is 57 playing today, no I didn’t so.

  577. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Bucs fans are garbage. Someone made a complaint and got warning.from security because I’m standing on 3rd downs.

    Insane… And extremely disappointing

  578. Sam Says:

    This team is not playoff bound.

  579. Big Stinky Says:

    Guess not

  580. g720 Says:

    Jamies doesn’t know how to throw to anybody but who he makes up his mind to throw to before the play

  581. cmurda Says:


  582. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Frustrating cheering for these guys. Can’t lose this game!!!!

  583. BucsFan90 Says:

    Kicker and OL are trash

  584. ARGH_M8E Says:

    This is not fun

  585. unbelievable Says:

    Swagger just got dragged.

  586. cmurda Says:

    Grimes has been outstanding breathing life into our team.

  587. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Grimes is such a WARRIOR !

  588. JameisDungy Says:

    Hump was wide open.

    However, Dirk….the Giants have an ELITE PASS DEFENSE.

    RUN THE BALL and use PLAY ACTION OFF OF IT. These shotgun passes are playing into the Giants hands.

    Last week was Bad Jameis. This week its BAD Dirk.

  589. Big Stinky Says:

    James needs a 4th quarter comeback

  590. unbelievable Says:

    Great play Brent.

  591. King C Says:

    Brent Grimes is keeping us in the game

  592. Rod Munch Says:

    The defense is doing their job today. If Dirk would just learn what a playaction pass is and to stop giving a tell on all his play calling perhaps they can still get a W here.

  593. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    We’re gonna win this I’m calling it right now.

  594. cmurda Says:

    OK JW new life. Lets get this in for a TD and get the 2 point conversion.

  595. g720 Says:

    Hargreaves, you are not anywhere as good as
    Grimes. Another wasted 1st round pick. I like the way you do your stupid sh+t after you make a routine play. Your a joke.

  596. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    you’re crazy if you think the field goal wouldve been an ok option. We can’t do either

  597. Rojas Says:

    Can we clone grimes ? An put him on the other side too.

  598. TeddyTB Says:

    Damn I need FSU Winston right now. Close this game out bro!

  599. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Rod Munch did you see 1st quarter of the game? Dirk was calling quite a few PA.

  600. dave Says:

    where are the “stick carriers” lol can’t hear them only here giants fans

  601. Easy Denman Says:

    Wing is just trolling us at this point. He knows we will fail on another 3rd down conversion

  602. g720 Says:

    We’ll be playing for a field goal. 2 runs and a pass. Koetter too scared to try for 7

  603. unbelievable Says:

    Gotta score a touchdown here. Field position is too good.

    Koetter bust out your 2015 playcalling ability please.

  604. THETRUTH Says:

    They are trying to give the game to us , good teams take them not let those games go

  605. GrudenForPresident Says:

    Yes I agree cmurda but he has been overthrowing and throwing behind receivers all day also. This is year 3 this drove right here against an 0-3 team at home if Winston is gonna be any good he needs to pull this out. Right here right now.

  606. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    g720, totally agree. no idea what he is celebrating. He’s laughing and yucking it up on his way to nothing.

  607. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    Mr. Magoo is number one overall pick well into his third season. It is time to make it happen.

  608. King C Says:

    JW started 6 of 9 passing
    Now 15 of 30

  609. Rod Munch Says:

    Jolly Bucs Fan – Someone complained to security that you were standing on 3rd down? Really? Why wouldn’t the security guard just say, yeah, it’s football you fat slob, get on your feet, why would they come to you about it?

    Anywho good to know they’ll do that for the next game I go to and other teams fans are there, I’ll use that to harass them the entire game.

  610. THETRUTH Says:

    TE screen to Howard and it’s a TD. ! !!!!!!!!

  611. SB Says:

    If Jameis doesn’t get us a TD here I am going to have to seriously re evaluate my opinion.. Our D is Stout

  612. g720 Says:

    What is scary is even if we score here, our defense has to stop Manning.

  613. cmurda Says:

    Yeah Hump. Finish this drive now. We need a TD

  614. Bucs Says:

    Let’s see how dirk will screw this one up

  615. Easy Denman Says:


  616. GrudenForPresident Says:


  617. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    run the ball plz take time off the clock good lord!

  618. unbelievable Says:

    I’ll say it again:


  619. Bucs1856 Says:

    Humphries the next great patriots receiver lol!!

  620. g720 Says:

    Evan, hold on to the freaking ball if you want to be considered great.

  621. mark2001 Says:

    This simple…can we impose our will on the other team. All the rest is BS.

  622. cmurda Says:

    Only on us would that be PI offense

  623. cmurda Says:

    Yessssss. Get the 2 now.

  624. Easy Denman Says:

    Fire the cannons!!

  625. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    go for 2, WHAT A THROW BY JW!!!

  626. GrudenForPresident Says:

    Yes Baby Cam Brate! Fire The Cannons!

  627. unbelievable Says:

    Let’s go!

  628. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    FAK YOU OneofOne!

  629. cmurda Says:

    Ughhhh. Dammit JW lead him with the throw. This has to be a sweat game thanks to our non-kicker.

  630. Rrsrq Says:

    So much better when JW takes his time

  631. g720 Says:

    Please somebody take our center in practice next week and make him hike the ball in shotgun formation a million times. He has sucked with his feeble hikes.

  632. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @cmurda seriously like how th fak was that a PI LOL

  633. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Okay. I said it about djax before he was signed. Too. Many. Drops.

  634. King C Says:

    with a good kicker it wd be 27-17… sigh

  635. GrudenForPresident Says:

    What Gruden Could do with this offense!! No disrespect to Coach K but his no Chucky!!

  636. unbelievable Says:

    DeSean gets pushed around too much by opposing DBs.

  637. JameisDungy Says:

    Sadly Jameis and DJack have horrible chemistry. He keeps throwing behind him on short routes. Overthrows or underthrows on deep passes


  638. EA Says:

    For fans that do whatever it takes, I just changed the couch and they scored, this is the couch I was sitting in when they beat the Bears.

  639. Bucamania Says:

    Ok D step up now. GMC!!

  640. SB Says:

    Well Three Ints last week, Three TDs this week. I would say good progress.

  641. simon Says:

    DJax should have hustle to that ball

  642. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @GrudenForPresident For real no joke.

  643. BuccoDav Says:

    JW was patient and made some great throws towards the end of that drive. That’s the Jameis we have been wanting!

  644. Rrsrq Says:

    Defense had a chance to rest, now let’s make a play, this where we miss the two linebackers who are able to make plays

  645. unbelievable Says:

    With a good kicker it would be 30 – 17 actually…

  646. USFBUC Says:

    Now just need a stop on defense and hold the ball

  647. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @BuccoDav did it click for him, do we have good JW now? lol I hope so.

  648. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis has to stop throwing the ball to Jackson like he’s Evans – the guy is a little petite WR and just can’t make the same plays. With Evans it doesn’t matter if he’s covered or not, you put it where you know he can get his hands on it – but with DJax you have to lead him. It’s still a timing issue, in generally they always say it takes until about the 4th game to figure that stuff out. They’ll get there, I have no doubt.

    Anywho lets see if the defense can keep it up or not, they’ve played above their heads today.

  649. unbelievable Says:

    Time for an INT from Eli.

    Let’s goooooooooooo!

  650. g720 Says:

    Jamies threw the ball behind him again.

  651. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Trade one of these many linebackers we have to Indy for vinateri. Would fix our kicker situation for a year or 2

  652. Spicoli Says:

    DJax is boom or bust potential every week.

  653. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Now get some F’in pressure!!!!!!

  654. Maxx Says:

    Just need a normal pro keep kicker for gods sake. Conor Barth should not have been cut.

  655. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Here comes Eli

  656. Redtop5588 Says:

    Idc what no one says my dog jaboowins balled out today frfr I’m just mad at how many points we left off the board today 2 missed fgs 1 missed extra point An shoulda had a td on the 1yrd line

  657. Spicoli Says:

    DJax has boom or bust potential every week.

  658. NFLNut Says:

    Jameis now has more yards and TDs against this Giants defense than anyone (Stafford, Dak, Wentz) all year … if it weren’t for missed kicks (by both teams) the score would be 27-20 Bucs

  659. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @Mike Evans GOAT not a bad idea.

  660. Kstoges Says:

    I am a bucs fan at heart but close second is the ny giants my dad is a huge fan my whole family is so I love them to so this game is insane watching and my heart is gunna explode I’m literally screaming one second and praying we don’t lose I guys holy crap this game is insane

  661. g720 Says:

    Come on Smith, don’t give him all day to throw the ball.

  662. Matts17 Says:

    Winston’s inaccuracy will be his ultimate undoing in this league.

  663. BuccoDav Says:

    Great throw…

  664. Rojas Says:

    VH3 is so trash

  665. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Can we not get to Manning?

  666. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    VH3 is garbage. We need a big physical corner

  667. cmurda Says:

    We need to fire Mike Smith. You know he’s gonna throw and you have no D Line and you dont bring a blitz and let that big play happen. I hate Mike Smith

  668. g720 Says:

    If we lose this game or even if not, please send Smith on his way out of here.

  669. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Hold on to your butts

  670. DB55 Says:

    Hope my ice cream don’t melt.

  671. Bucamania Says:

    I’d throw at VH3 EVERY time

  672. unbelievable Says:

    @Maxx –

    Matt Bryant should have never been cut.

    And there goes Beckham. Faaaackkkk

  673. mark2001 Says:

    So when the going gets tough, man them up against VH3.

  674. King C Says:

    Vinaiteri is too old but S. Hauschka was available in free agency last year and we passed

  675. g720 Says:

    Show that loser VH3 how to cover someone. Hargreave you are pathethic.

  676. cmurda Says:


  677. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Why would anyone put the responsibility of lack of pass rush on the GM? Blame the training room quality control guy.
    Total loser

  678. g720 Says:

    Smith, you have to freaking blitz. You moron

  679. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    love the ice cream man showing up when it counts

  680. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Does this come down to a folk kick to win it!?

  681. Easy Denman Says:

    WTF?? Why is VH28 playing off 7 yards??

  682. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith has rushed 4 guys the entire time and the Giants O Line has easily handled it. PREDICTABLE

  683. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This system can’t run properly without Kwon and LVD. Glanton should NEVER EVER be covering OBJ

  684. DB55 Says:

    Is this a home game for the giants?

  685. mark2001 Says:

    What defense is this? And we thought we would see the D of the last half of last year?

  686. unbelievable Says:

    D line has nothing left in the tank. They can push the pocket but can’t touch Eli.

  687. g720 Says:

    Licht, tell Koetter he has to get rid of Smith or please do it yourself.

  688. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Stupid Koetter didn’t even challenge that.

  689. cmurda Says:

    Dirk not smart enough to challenge that play. It was a fumble. I see this all the time. Dirk lacks common sense

  690. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Stick Carriers still around or they done too?

  691. cmurda Says:

    Boooo MIKE SMITH

  692. unbelievable Says:

    Dirk giving up here? Cmon man

  693. g720 Says:

    the irony is that the kicker is going to have to win this game for us.

  694. cmurda Says:

    Have to take a timeout on defense because of Mike Smith. I hated him last year and he’s even worse this year.

  695. g720 Says:

    Way to waste a timeout Bucs

  696. Joel Says:

    D isn’t making a stand here.

  697. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Dline is hot garbage

  698. Bucs Says:


  699. DB55 Says:

    I scream you scream where’s my dline?

  700. Kstoges Says:

    I can’t even watch this rn

  701. cmurda Says:

    FIRE FOLK AND MIKE SMITH before the BS press conference. He sucks ass and his defenses always have.

  702. Mr. E Nigma Says:

    McCoy and defense folded like origami when you needed them most.

  703. g720 Says:

    You are an absoulte idiot Smith. Give him all the time he needs to comp;lete the pass.

  704. Joel Says:

    Time for Winston to win a game. Our defense can’t.

  705. CautiousOptimism Says:

    Cmurder- is your daddy Licht telling you who to scapegoat?

  706. USFBUC Says:

    They should have just stepped out of the way and let Gallman score so we had more time

  707. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    Bucs are a joke

  708. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Up Next ailing patriots on national tv, great recipe for bucs win

  709. NFLNut Says:

    Tom Brady is licking his chops and ticked he lost today … I expect him to go for 400+ against us next week … hopefully Jameis can light up the Pats D as our D is pretty bad …

  710. Easy Denman Says:

    Lol this defense is embarrassing

  711. mike10 Says:

    This team is all kinds of average

  712. WeAreLost Says:

    This is it, go jameis!

  713. NFLNut Says:

    Should be 27-27 if not for Folk …

  714. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Go JW!!!!!

  715. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    justin evans on obj what defense is that i guess they all dumpster fire so doesnt matter

  716. Pit Says:

    We are sad. Just sad

  717. JonBuc Says:

    Come in Jamies…don’t let Quittin’ Koetter drag you down to a L…

  718. g720 Says:

    Like we are going to stop this a second time

  719. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @JonBuc lol so true. JW time to take over!

  720. cmurda Says:

    Wait, why would there be a retry????

  721. Matts17 Says:

    This defense is garbage but gets no help from its coordinator. No adjustments to help this dline. Coverage is too soft. Missing David and Kwon is huge too.

  722. g720 Says:

    Koetter, thanks for waking up

  723. Rich Sauers, Jr. Says:

    You guys blaming GMC don’t know jack. He’s double teamed all the time. Look at the other guys. Why aren’t they getting to the qb? What about the the corners playing off? Its not hard to get the catches and the time for Eli to figure things out when we give them free open catches. I don’t what kind of nfl team plays off like this as much as we are currently.

  724. DB55 Says:

    We got ourselves a shoot out.

    Mr. Ice Cream man there’s something wrong with my line
    when got a lead I can’t keep it.
    Me ice cream man something is wrong with my line,
    cuz when I dial a defense
    it gets beat every time.

  725. Easy Denman Says:

    Let’s earn your status here Jaboo. Win this game for us

  726. cmurda Says:

    Great, now we have to rely on a FG. The only way you allow Folk on the flight home is if he hits the GW FG if given the chance. Our defense masterminded by the most predictable DC in history really let us down again after JW came through for the go ahead TD

  727. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    would have 31 if folk didn’t suck.
    2 missed FG
    1 xp
    And we went for 2 cuz he sucks.

  728. Bucs Says:

    And now Evans is hurt. Ofcourse

  729. cmurda Says:

    Oh no Mike Evans shaken up. We need him right now.

  730. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Praying for Folk I’m not lying.

  731. DBS Says:

    Does not matter about Folk. If the High flying offense was as advertised the Giants would need more points than this.

  732. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Sorry 30^^^

  733. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    If only licht woulda drafted a kicker the bucs might have won this

  734. g720 Says:

    You better not leave too much time on the clock if you score here or they will come down and score again. unless Smith wakes up.

  735. unbelievable Says:

    Gonna come down to a folk FG?

    Man I hope Jameis can score instead.

    Really hope Evans is just shaken up.

  736. NFLNut Says:

    Is it 23-22 or 25-22 … Gamecast is acting up?

  737. Easy Denman Says:


  738. Bighck61 Says:

    It’s the dreaded hard knocks curse 😖

  739. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ELITE QB throw there

  740. Easy Denman Says:

    Make Cameron Brate again!

  741. cmurda Says:

    Beautiful throw, heroic catch by Brate

  742. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    score a TD WTF

  743. DB55 Says:

    OJ? Okay!

  744. Bucs Says:

    Well lookie there.

  745. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    JW JW JW JW JW what a touch passssss!

  746. Capt. Blighe Says:


  747. NFLNut Says:

    Thanks … run out the clock and kick the game-winner, yes?

  748. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    How bout that throw?!?!?!?!?

  749. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Great catch by that 1st round TE pick by licht

  750. Sam Says:

    I wouldn’t trust Folk at all… I don’t care how close it is.

  751. BuccoDav Says:

    Wow! It’s amazing how much better the playcalling seems when the players execute.

  752. King C Says:

    great unbelievable catch by Brate

  753. cmurda Says:

    This is an extra point. Folk can kick a chip shot game winner and all is forgiven….for now. Miss this and he is gone.

  754. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Back in the day when bucs had 2 RBs this was alstott time

  755. King C Says:

    Why not at least try for a TD

  756. Bucs Says:

    Better make this folk.

  757. BuccoDav Says:

    Don’t want to riskmturnover

  758. Capt. Blighe Says:


  759. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:


  760. THETRUTH Says:

    Blocked why settle for kick

  761. BuccoDav Says:

    Wow. Too close

  762. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  763. JonBuc Says:

    Yikes!!! Yes!!!

  764. Bucs Says:

    In spite of stupid koetter

  765. DB55 Says:


  766. Sam Says:


  767. WeAreLost Says:

    Well i about had a fuking heart attack

  768. USFBUC Says:

    Thank god

  769. NFLNut Says:
