  2. MadMax Says:

    So what position are we drafting first…top 5-7 pick probably.


    Im thinking DE Bradley Chubb, then move back into the bottom of the first for CB Denzel Ward.


  3. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Bucs fans in the stadium will make the difference between a winning or losing effort. If our fans can get into Cam’s head, we win this game! Wish I was using my seats today, instead of watching from NFL Sunday Ticket.

  4. Jimmyjack Says:

    Settle down mad max. We are only six games in and have yet to play a division game.

    I know we have looked bad thus far but if you think there is no chance to turn it around you need to learn sports.

  5. Bucamania Says:

    Is Simeon starting today?

  6. MadMax Says:

    I knows what I sees and experience makes me sees what i knows coming 😉

  7. University of Seffner Says:

    I’m in Section 121 and there was a significantly less amount of people going into the stadium while walking in.

  8. tmaxcon Says:

    hopefully cancer93 does not come out flat or in his traditional home stance of face down arse up welcoming the entire opposing teams offense to score. my only hope the is the defense does not put jameis in a double digit hole before halftime.

  9. DoNUTS Says:

    The Bucs playoff run starts today. Lose and the season is over.

  10. Jimmyjack Says:

    Think we need to establish a run game today. The tough prt is that we never show much of a short passing attack and not sure we have an ability to go there if our run gets shut down. But we are depleted on defence and can’t continue to get dominated in time of possession and think we will have success.

    Don’t think Carolina will try to take advantage of our secondary issues a ton and turn this into a shootout because that plays into our . Instead I expect Carolina to try and exploit our shaky run stop and test our weak zone coverage that has been exposed all year.

  11. Lamarcus Says:

    Keotter you better call a good time management game. Dink and donk. Run the ball 50 times. KEEP THAT D OFF THE FIELD

    Gmc ward baker ( cancer trio) will not win you a game.

  12. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Let the Sunday Crap Show begin. Please Bucs…..PROVE ME WRONG!

  13. Jimmyjack Says:

    Yeah lamarcus…….Our defence has played awful and there’s no excuse. But Dirks gameplay that hands control of the clock to his opponent does is no favours.

    Everybody wants to give Dirk a break because his offence is effective but he is the HC. Play calling is not his only priority

  14. Eric Says:

    Must win. Don’t care how. Pure luck will be fine.

  15. Lamarcus Says:

    I love koetter. He has done well this year imo. Over my expectations. But the d is a letdown once again and litter w media complainers. This doesn’t help the team.

  16. Jimmyjack Says:

    The one time our defence showed up was against New England when they hand Dirk the ball to start the game with a Int and a three and out.

    Dirk took the ball and hands it right back to the greatest coach in football. I’ll never forgive Dirk for that game but I will forget if he ever does something to allow me to.

    Enough is enough, the guy has been on the sideline too man games. Time to figure it out and be a HC…..not a coordinator standing on the sidelines

  17. Bayers Says:

    Go bucs go Chris Godwin and oj Howard j Winston desman mike Godzilla EVANS

  18. Lamarcus Says:

    Koetter inherent a losing culture. From the day he step in to now he has done his part and more…… and he is still building. We keep koetter and rid of the guys who can’t adjust to him and his guys. Not these career losing players.
    Ward I give a pass to cuz yes its embarrassing being benched for Conte/tandy and he is in culture shock

  19. Lamarcus Says:


    I’m good w koetter

    I don’t want to see 5th hc in 8 years. Idoitneers again.

  20. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Your expectations must have been quite low then. I think Koetter has done a questionable job with the game planning, clock management, and in game adjustments. Not fireable yet, but Mike Smith on the other hand should have been left in Buffalo.

  21. bucnut2 Says:

    Jay Glazer just said JW has a slight tear in the shoulder. Why is he playing?

  22. Lamarcus Says:

    I have experience of someone that actually played football and learn multiple playboy’s and most importantly realistic.

  23. Sydney Says:


  24. Lamarcus Says:

    I mean playbooks

    Maybe playboy’s was the word with your expectations. This isn’t madden ps4 man

  25. Lamarcus Says:

    Koetter is improving hc

    Video game and real life football time management are 2 different things

  26. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol I played d 3 football @ UW whitewater. I have experience as well. That doesn’t mean that this was to be expected. Give belicheat this roster and he would take em to the super bowl. This is one of the more talented rosters out there. Scheme is holding us back on both sides of the ball

  27. Jimmyjack Says:

    Lamarcus……..The coaching carousel shouldn’t be a reason to keep a HC. Especially not when you figure that most of those head coaches we are talking about we’re playing under a GM that didn’t know how to acquire talented player.

    Those coaches that got fired were just taking the axe for horrible football operations above them. If you can convince me that those coaches that got fired should have been winning with the players they had then I might buy it. But I’m pretty sure you can’t…….In the case of Dirk I see a lot more talent and this team should be expected to win more then they are. The coaches that got fired before him I did not ever expect to win with the little talent they had

  28. Easy Denman Says:

    VHIII gonna get wrecked by big bodied Benjamin and Funchess if he’s still playing off 10 yards every snap

  29. Pickgrin Says:

    Get-R-Done Bucs!

  30. Jimmyjack Says:

    All I know is when you play Tom Brady and your defence gives you a three and out and an Int and the first quarter stats show that you have been dominated in TOP and are behind in the game your coach has ruined a golden opportunity.

    I am not sure how anybody can see it differently

  31. bucnut2 Says:

    Where is the screen game?

  32. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol can’t even get 5 yards. No quick passing game.

  33. Big Stinky Says:

    What a joke! Can’t even get 5 yards

  34. Jimmyjack Says:

    How about our start vs the Cards………..They ran the ball the whole length of the field on us and we stayed in the same defensive set for the entirety of it.

    This is Dirks team and he can not allow his team to start a game unprepared to stop a run which they clearly were. He didn’t even burn a timeout to burn.

    Again, Dirk is the Head football coach here. Not an O coordinator

  35. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Panthers corners playing 10 yards off with 5 yards to gain and we try to throw it deep. No rhythm in this offense. Bad play calling. Dirk needs to give up play calling duties.

  36. Easy Denman Says:

    Nice to see VHIII playing press coverage.

  37. Dirty Bucs Says:

    If Winston is going to float every pass like those first 2, take him out and let Fitz go! Recipe for interceptions and turnovers.

  38. BuccoDav Says:

    tmaxcon Says:
    October 29th, 2017 at 12:28 pm
    hopefully cancer93 does not come out flat…

    You have said time and time again that it on matters what GMC93 does in the fourth quarter. What gives?

  39. NFLNut Says:

    MadMax … I doubt we get a #5-7 pick but if we lose the next 2 games I wouldn’t be opposed to losing on purpose and trying to get the #3 pick as we could trade back and pick up a TON the way the Titans did in the 2016 draft, as one of Darnold/Rosen/Allen will still be available and command a King’s ransom!

  40. Jimmyjack Says:

    Oops got caught up and missed kickoff. See y’all after game

  41. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Ok let’s see what they do on second drive

  42. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Where did u play with all that experience?

  43. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Do we have 1 shotgun play in our high school offense?

  44. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Pathetic offense

  45. MadMax Says:

    ME13 u suck

  46. Easy Denman Says:

    Gotta make that catch Mike

  47. Tbbucs3 Says:

    0 rhythm in this offense. Such a predictable offense.

  48. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Playing scared once again. Open things up Dirk.

  49. Bayers Says:

    We just getting warmed up let’s go bucs

  50. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    TO was a great receiver with inconsistent hands. I suspect we’re going to have to live with the same thing with ME13.

    Everybody keeps talking about making “a play”. That drop by ME13 will not be a statistically giant thing…but in terms of this game these are the plays we MUST make.

    That was simply a terrible play given that we were finally moving it!!! ONE play like that could show up big time in our poor Defensive stats.

    ME has given the Panthers a fresh start!

  51. Chris Says:

    I think monken should call plays

  52. Dirty Bucs Says:

    You guys with the “You suck” comments when a player makes a bad play, really need to shut up. You make mistakes at work all the time. Ffs

  53. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Kwon looking better today!

  54. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    panthers are a poorly offensively coached team

  55. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Dirty Bucs

    COming from the guy who just said Bench WInston after an overthow over the best LB in the NFL.

  56. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Block that extra point. Hold them to 6 here.

  57. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    well chris baker does suck and jason licht sucks for signing him instead of campbell

  58. Easy Denman Says:

    First drive defense is playing press coverage now back to playing off 10 yards

  59. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This defense is pathetic. HOW DOES THEIR SLOT WR HAVE NOBODY WITHIN 10 YARDS OF HIM??!?!???

  60. MadMax Says:


  61. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Please please, I beg u to fire Mike Smith. He is GARBAGE

  62. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I understand the NFL is loaded with talent and the other team has guys capable of making plays.

    What I do not understand is how frequently we simply leave guys totally uncovered. I’m a big Shep fan but dang…3rd and long and you leave him WIDE open? Too many plays where we get beat mentally or in coaching.

  63. Destinjohnny Says:

    Keying on spence and his one move today

  64. Say What? Says:

    Can’t get off the field on third down.

  65. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    Nice to see VHIII off to a good start. Conte is hot garbage.

  66. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This is getting to be Lovie esq on defense. I’m having flash backs

  67. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Spence is on IR

  68. Not there yet Says:

    Mike Smith is garbage and he’s the trouble. Why would you have your corners playing that far off on 2nd and 10. Stupid

  69. NFLNut Says:


    Take a LONG-TERM view of this team … the reason the Titans should win the AFC North this year is BECAUSE they were so bad Mariota’s rookie year and were able to get a high pick and flip that for a ton … losing can be a wonderful thing at times if one has a long-term view of things …


  70. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Spence is on IR

  71. Dirty Bucs Says:


    Winston is not 100%. There’s a huge difference between saying someone sucks, and saying to bench an unhealthy player who can’t get it done. I also said “IF”… reading comprehension is your friend…

  72. Say What? Says:

    Has Will Clarke made a tackle since he joined the team?

  73. Matts17 Says:

    Wow. This D is just awful.

  74. MadMax Says:

    gj D….hold em on3rd

  75. ChanEpic Says:

    Cam is not 100% either though.. So? That’s life in the NFL.

  76. BuccoDav Says:

    Not There…

    Smith has said in the past that how far off the corner plays is the corners’ decision to make.

  77. Say What? Says:

    Nice Defense

  78. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Soft as charmin

  79. Destinjohnny Says:

    Dt p

  80. Lamarcus Says:


  81. Walter Says:

    Pathetic Defense. PUH-THE-TIC

  82. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    Time for our high powered offense to step the frick up!! Let’s get some D-Jax!!!

  83. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  84. Bird Says:

    Man. That was to easy.

    I feel sick to my stomach watching this defense. They have quit. Guys walking off injured Bet if we were winning team they would play with a few bumps

  85. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Well it still falls on Mike Smith, if he can’t coach these guys to play press then that is his fault. He is supposed to be the boss, if he wanted them to play press they would be in press.

  86. Walter Says:

    I knew I shouldn’t have watched today.

  87. Big Stinky Says:

    Got the ball first and still down by 7

  88. BucFan4Life Says:

    All this talent and this is the product that Mike Smith puts on the field. No wonder Atlanta let him go.

    And Jamies looks terrible. He can’t hit a receiver in stride…hell he’s lucky to throw it into the same part of the field.

  89. Destinjohnny Says:

    We don’t really need d jack yet as we don’t have a defense that can compete
    We are going to have to have 2 years of d line corner and saftey drafting.
    By then d jack will be 34

  90. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    I tell you the players have tuned Mike Smith out. What other explanation is there? In other news, Florida is looking for a new coach.

  91. Destinjohnny Says:

    Not coaching
    It’s personal

  92. MadMax Says:

    Nflnut, we usually dont start thinking like that until the last 3 or 4 games of the season…..even though we tried winning last year, it still worked out for getting your “man crash” Howard…lol

  93. Big Stinky Says:

    Longest drive of the year for Carolina

  94. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Two plays were integral in Carolina’s seven points.

    ME13 drops a very catchable first down conversion…hell who knows how long we might have stayed on the field.

    Then we play good D…it’s 3rd and 9 and Russell Shepherd is the invisible man…how does he get do open…he didn’t beat anybody…there wasn’t anybody in the same freaking zip code.

    Carolina is a decent NFL team they will get their runs and passes we simply cannot make a play…ME’s drop and leaving Shep wide open on 3rd and 9.

    I’m starting to get ill.

  95. Usmc-buc Says:

    Hot garbage defense.

    Bad on 3rd down on both side of the ball.

    Flat start

    No heart.

    Yup we’re watching the bucs play.

  96. Bird Says:

    Carolinas longest drive of season.

    Sounds about right

  97. Walter Says:

    1st play……. “HOLDING….”


  98. BuccoDav Says:

    A good manager let’s his employees work to what they think are their strengths…

  99. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Definitely not personal. Like I said earlier, give belicheat this roster and watch him win a super bowl

  100. ChanEpic Says:

    It seems obvious to me. The Bucs DBs/LBs do not know who their assignments are on pass plays, and as a result cannot play fast. They are almost always chasing the WRs/TEs/RBs from behind on pass plays. The scheme is not being tailored to the players on the team.

  101. MadMax Says:

    Nflnut, we usually dont start thinking like that until the last 3 or 4 games of the season…..even though we tried winning last year, it still worked out for getting your man crush Howard

  102. bucster Says:

    Looks like a lot of people ditched their GMC jerseys today and instead went to the game dressed as an empty seat.

  103. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    A good manager doesn’t let his employees sink the company.

  104. LongSeason Says:

    Again the Yucs offense can’t move a feather pillow in the first quarter. The defense can’t stop a Pee Wee football offense. Tampa Bay sucks was. TD Carolina. Go Yucs. Yeah right. They can go to Help. Coaches suck too.

  105. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Good point.

  106. Bayers Says:

    YES MIKE HAS to make that we have opportunities we have to capitalize on them

  107. Ndog Says:

    Jameis is playing like crap right now. Horrible

  108. Walter Says:

    Another wide open opportunity MISSED by Jameis. How long our coach is supposed to sit there and let this keep happening? The dude can’t hit water if he fell out of a boat

  109. BucJ Says:

    We need to clean the house. Dirk Koetter is too predictable and won’t give up play calling duties, Mike Smith is a terrible DC, and Jason Licht allows for this mediocrity to still happen. With the 6th selection in the 2018 nfl draft, the Tampa Bay buccaneers select, the punter from UF

  110. BuccoDav Says:

    Touched! But would it be better if he forced them to play at the line and they were repeatedly beat deep?

  111. LongSeason Says:

    GMC needs to have his lazy get was cut. Letter could make a statement to the rest of the team. If we cut McAnnoy, the we can cut anyone’s ass.

  112. Bucs14 Says:

    C’mon Bucs. Still 3 quarters left!

  113. BucFan4Life Says:

    Winston needs to start his receivers in stride. Thinks he’s Tom Brady, more like Ryan Leaf.

  114. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Chuck sims is your receiver back. Why TF are u throwing a screen to quiz?

  115. Big Stinky Says:

    This team is a damn joke

  116. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    #3 was moving the chains in a scoreless game. He throws a very catchable first down completion to keep the chains moving the the Panthers off the field but the WR didn’t make the catch. That’s not on #3.

  117. BuccoDav Says:

    Helmet to helmet.

  118. Bucs14 Says:


  119. BuccoDav Says:

    Bad call…

  120. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    That was head hunting for sure. So will we feel sorry if Davis comes up with CTE.

    He’s certainly doing his best to concuss opposing players. That play wasn’t even close!!!

  121. Walter Says:

    Another penalty

  122. Pickgrin Says:

    Phantom holding call negating a nice play was total BS!

  123. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    St Pete
    Winston’s mechanics are off. They need to let him throw naturally instead of always wanting to change how a person throws.

  124. Walter Says:

    Lol sad. Loser call on 3rd down

  125. Sydney Says:






  126. MadMax Says:

    gj Godwin!

  127. Walter Says:

    The only thing we’re good at: fielding punts inside the 5

  128. Bird Says:

    That wasn’t holding

  129. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    What’s the odds on a 98 yard drive here?

  130. Walter Says:

    Now for another 14 play, 10 minutes drive ending in a touchdown to put us down 14-0 at the half. You heard it here first.

  131. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Anyone for a 99 yard scoring drive?

  132. LongSeason Says:

    What the fu–! Humphries on 3rd and 8 behind the line with nonblockers in front. Letter saying we give up. We can’t make 8 fu–ing years. Pathetic!!!

  133. cmurda Says:

    Another glorious first half and lack of balls by Koetter. Same crap different game

  134. ChanEpic Says:

    Walter – That play is why Koetter might as well be Lovie. 3rd and 8 and you throw it wide to your ballet Dancing WR with no blocking help? MADDENING.

  135. Buc'n Since I was 10 Says:

    I would say very good Mike Evans

  136. Broy34isTiredofNegativity(GoAwayMaxi) Says:

    Terrible holding call. Terrible play calling. And then you punt on 4th and 2 following a 16 play drive by Carolina. Goodbye Koetter youve coached your way out of a head coaching gig. And Mike Smith can get walking too. Can’t even say Grimes as an excuse when Hargreaves is playing well

  137. Not there yet Says:

    Boy they are so sorry. You draft a guy 19th overall and he’s it off the game on 3rd down? This team after all these years still has no heart. This team is soft because of stupid coaching. I guess we’re supposed to believe Mike Evans regressed…. Do you remember he is on your team Dirk?

  138. BucFan4Life Says:

    Tough enough to beat the Panthers. Now we have to beat the refs too.

  139. orlbucfan Says:

    Already wrote Loss on my Picks. It’s the coaches. I keep hoping DK will line a receiver up in the backfield with Simms. Jameis would score a touchdown, and the Carolina D would be in shock.

  140. LongSeason Says:

    Letter = Koetter. Damned auto correct.

  141. Big Stinky Says:

    Three drives and no points. Brilliant!

  142. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  143. Walter Says:

    Lol 11 on the line, can’t stop a run up the gut. LMFAO

  144. Buc'n Since I was 10 Says:

    and here the TD drive goes

  145. AlteredEgo Says:

    QB …can’t hit his passes…

  146. Bird Says:

    Man. Gholston is terrible since he got paid.

  147. Rob Says:

    The vaunted paper mache defense is in mid season form as the next beating ensues. This sorry, gutless team is just another embarrassment to their fans. God I wish we weren’t repeatedly the laughing stock of the entire league. Penned in the 1/2 yard line we give up 10 up the middle. The Bucs absolutely SUCK once again. Mistackling, blown coverages, no pass rush. Gutless

  148. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    When do the glazers tell Koetter that enough is enough? FIRE MIKE SMITH

  149. unbelievable Says:

    This defense is really pathetic. It’s a shame.

  150. Rojas Says:

    Mike Smith really needs to go.

  151. Bucs14 Says:

    Hargraves is terrible. Bench his arm tacking rear end.

  152. dirkdiggler Says:

    guys dont be disappointed this was expected. This team is bad. need to watch the quitters and then after the season run they out of town.

  153. Easy Denman Says:

    Atleast VHIII is trying to play aggressively on this drive. Good job drawing the penalty on Funchess

  154. BucFan4Life Says:

    Hargreaves is the worst player on the roster. Kid sucks

  155. bucfan999 Says:

    That defense is so bad I just can’t get enthused to watch this game. Totally pathetic

  156. EA Says:

    Hargreaves can’t tackle a guy twice his size by himself, that’s what the fatties up front are for.

  157. NFLNut Says:


    Well, if there was ever a year to get a top 3 pick, this might be the year as trading that pick to a team that wants Darnold/Rosen/Allen could net us a ton!


  158. Easy Denman Says:

    Swaggy decided to show up on this series

  159. Walter Says:

    Waiting for McCafferey to have his career game. He still has time.

  160. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Come on D!!!

  161. Bangkok Buc Says:

    We stopped them on 3rd down!!!
    Holy sh!t

  162. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Might as well change our team colors to flag yellow and $hit brown. Always getting flags and $hitting the bed.

  163. Matts17 Says:

    More stupid penalties. The hallmark of any Buc team regardless of the year.

  164. EA Says:

    I have yet to see a decent punt return on bucs without a penalty, bucs have stunk on O and D so special gets overlooked, special teams are garbage too.

  165. Broy34isTiredofNegativity(GoAwayMaxi) Says:

    Hargreaves gives up 1 catch in a game and a half and half terrible. Give the kid a break. New player since he’s realized he has to press. Period

  166. BucFan4Life Says:

    The blind squirrels found an acorn

  167. cmurda Says:

    2 penalties to back us up when we should be on their side of the field. Your 2017 Bucs folks.

  168. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    you guys are pretty negative.

  169. King C Says:

    I wonder if the Bucs would have made the same mistake of drafting McCaffrey if Carolina passed on him

  170. BuccoDav Says:

    Bad call on Godwin… defender turned his back and made it look bad.

  171. Wewantgruden Says:

    Same old Bucs. Slow start. They will play from behind and pad stats for players while in catch up mode. Then disillusioned Bucs fans “think” the Bucs have a decent team. Same deal for the season; they will be a non threat to make the playoffs and win a few games down the stretch against teams that are either resting players for the playoffs or non playoff teams that are trying to Developement their young players. The same disillusioned fans will say “wait till next year”!!!!

  172. BuccoDav Says:

    BlogTalkFootball Says:
    October 29th, 2017 at 1:57 pm
    you guys are pretty negative

    No chit… welcome to JBF!

  173. cmurda Says:

    I hear every game how so many folks are negative while we keep losing. Perhaps some of us are sick of losing. We demand better

  174. BuccoDav Says:


  175. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Winston had regressed so much it’s crazy. We really need to clean house with these assistants. Bajakian has ruined our franchise qb

  176. BuccoDav Says:

    Wow… pathetic hands to the face call…

  177. Matts17 Says:

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

  178. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m done. Clean house fire everyone.

  179. Rob Says:

    What an idiot Winston

  180. EA Says:

    Stupid Winston

  181. BuccoDav Says:

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no…

  182. EA Says:

    He will never learn

  183. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    You have to eat that sack.

  184. Rob Says:

    That’s his 8th. I repeat 8th fumble this year. Suck fest

  185. Wewantgruden Says:

    JW needs to treat that football like a pound of crab legs. He will never drop it.

  186. BucFan4Life Says:

    What hot garbage looks like.

  187. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The regression is so incredible.

  188. Easy Denman Says:

    Lol typical Winston play right there. Just take the God Damn sack!!

  189. Matts17 Says:

    Bucs will never win with Winston. He just keeps proving it week after week. That play is just another prime example.

  190. Big Stinky Says:

    Just take the sack stupid. Here we go again

  191. Andrew Says:

    Two penalties and a fumble to ruin a great drive. That’s why we’re 2-4.

  192. DoNUTS Says:

    bad play JW and really inaccurate today…this does not look good. DEF held them and have a couple 3 and outs…playing better not great.

  193. Sydney Says:


  194. Bucamania Says:

    Stupid penalties. Lethargic play. Dumb plays.

    The usual Sunday sh1tshow.

  195. Swanee Says:

    This offensive line is so undisciplined. Penalties week after week. Bench those players.

  196. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bye bye Dirk. Bring in Gruden.

  197. LongSeason Says:

    The F—s arentbworth the time. I’m goingbtonwatch paint dry and cars rust. F—- this team.

  198. Chris Says:

    This is what a bad team looks like. Penalties, finding ways to lose games, excuses. I don’t care how much talent we have, this team is bad.

  199. MadMax Says:

    NO!!!! ITS NOT ON JAMEIS!!!!!

    HAHA, yeah, tell that to the Josh Freeman 2.0 lovers here who are still stuck on stupid!

  200. BuccoDav Says:

    That is classic Winston… do you really not want him coached up better? 3rd season and he hasn’t realized he isn’t still playing against Wake Forest…

  201. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Love how all the random posters show up after a fumble.

  202. Sickofit Says:

    Tell me again about how great our offense is.

  203. Ndog Says:

    Prime example of trying to do to much make up for the 4 penalties on the drive.

  204. ElioT Says:

    Every f**king Sunday this team makes me feel like Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now.


  205. Bird Says:

    Jameis turnovers and missing wide open guys is koetters and Licht’s fault.

    Let’s make that clear

  206. Braum Says:

    Yeah, would totally rather have Jeff Garcia or Josh McCown

  207. BuccoDav Says:

    Ayers with the whiff…

  208. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Winston made ANOTHER MISTAKE? Color me shocked…

  209. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Just wow

  210. Wewantgruden Says:

    You do know that he scored a 27 on his Wonderlic test. You can’t teach a dumb Alabama redneck to make good decisions….

  211. VA BUC Says:

    Lol the offense doesnt show up today but the defense does GET ON THE SAME PAGE PLEASE….o can we please bench jamies now and RELEASE ROBERT AYERS

  212. Spicoli Says:

    Still not sure why I come to this forum… All the hate going on lol

  213. dirkdiggler Says:

    did dirk call empty set on that winston fumble play? asking for a friend.


  214. Chris Says:

    Regressed? How about the idiot play agaibst Oregon in the Pkayoff game?

  215. Rob Says:

    Team has quit in 7th game. F u Bucs. Rout their sorry gutless a$$e$

  216. Swanee Says:

    That was a bone head play by JW. Get Fitz in this game for crying out loud. H/C needs to quit wavering and make the decision.

  217. NFLNut Says:

    If you want to see “regression” … watch Mariota and Carr … Winston is having the best season of his career this year and is playing hurt … don’t be idiots

  218. Not there yet Says:

    If anyone thinks Winston is being developed is kidding themselves. If you think Dirk is what’s best for his career your kidding yourselves. Koetter doesn’t have the pedigree or the credibility to get this team over the hump or out of this funk. You got lineman all over you but think you have time to switch hands on a shovel pass lol

  219. Bob in Valrico Says:

    That was a bad fumble but Ithink fumbles were on Marpet’s shaky snaps.

  220. Bigt Says:

    Jamis has his head up his ass

  221. Quattrolou Says:

    This game is painful to watch. Almost like last years field goal game.

  222. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Here we go!

  223. Broy34isTiredofNegativity(GoAwayMaxi) Says:

    Half his fumbles are the genius decision to make an emerging guard a center. This in a strange way is the absolute sorriest team I have ever watched play. U have the top passing offense in football and have scored a combined six points in the first two halves in the last two weeks. I am so beyond fed up. I’m actually playing the new assassin’s Creed game and the half isn’t over. We might as well just lose now because there is ZERO PERCENT CHANCE of this being a playoff team. One unit shows up the other craps the bed every single. Game. Every. Single. Game. Defense shows up first time since week one and offense is absolutely pathetic. Coaching is poor. Dirk and Mike Smith need to be fired immediately. Yeah I get it coaching turnover isn’t good. Undisciplined bad game management zero adjustments. Underperforming. Right back to being a team nobody wants to play for.

  224. NFLNut Says:


  225. VA BUC Says:

    Please can we bench jameis while were still in this game and its weird the defense shows up but the offense is at home kotter has to give up playcalling asap

  226. Buccaneer Bill Says:

    All the unemployed NFL GM’s live on JBF! Everyone has a complaint, but who can, on this site, implement a solution. Answer: No one! I want better too, but I don’t see things as dire overall as many on this site. I especially do not want to start over.

  227. Bigt Says:

    Jamis is not throwing the ball he’s shot putting the ball no zip

  228. Easy Denman Says:

    Good hold Defense

  229. Bucamania Says:

    VH3 actually playing well today

  230. Bob in Valrico Says:

    edit: somefumbles

  231. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Nice save by the defense.

  232. Biggun Says:

    Thank God defense came to play….

  233. Buc'n Since I was 10 Says:

    Yea good job D

  234. Rojas Says:

    Not there yet

    Couldn’t agree more.

  235. NFLNut Says:

    At least we’re playing Cam (6-for-13) and not Brady … or Keenum for that matter, hahahaha

  236. g720 Says:

    It is amazing watching Hargreaves. The quarterback makes a bad pass and Hargreaves is shaking and dancing like he did something. Even if you make a defensive play, it doesn’t make up for your wretched tackling.

  237. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Hump is too much of our offense so far. Find somebody else jameis.

  238. DoNUTS Says:

    still 7-0…relax guys..game still very much in reach.

  239. Bigt Says:

    Bring back Chucks please Glazers

  240. AlteredEgo Says:

    Aimless Winston….getting ready to start another possession….3 minutes in the half

  241. Spicoli Says:

    VHIII decides to actually cover receivers this game.

  242. Wewantgruden Says:

    Run the ball with 2:48 left???? Know why? DK does not trust idiot Jameis.

  243. dirkdiggler Says:

    @elliot LMAO if i had 10 divisions of men like that our troubles would be…. 10 times worse LOL

  244. Wewantgruden Says:

    Bring in Fitz NOW

  245. Lamarcus Says:

    Evans drops are becoming a problem

  246. Bucamania Says:

    Another ME drop

  247. Bucsfan107 Says:

    Winston holding our offense back once again bench him he doesn’t look good at all

  248. Viejo_Sombrero19 Says:

    Waow this is bull Sh…..

  249. g720 Says:

    Nice series there Jameis throwing the ball. You’re a franchise

  250. Wewantgruden Says:

    3 and out. Sure glad they have all of those talented receivers…..

  251. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Wonder if they rolled Jameis out, if that would help.

  252. Chef Says:

    WOW – Let’s raise season ticket prices

  253. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I suspect the fan boards in Charlotte are just as negative as ours.

    No need to dissect the first half…it was just ugly and crappy to watch as both teams struggle.

  254. Rojas Says:

    Oline can’t keep the pressure away. Lol

  255. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Pick 6

  256. Bucamania Says:

    Who on this team is playing to their potential? Seriously. It’s bad.

  257. Day1BucFan Says:

    I can’t believe how bad the suggestions are from JBF. I love the site, don’t get me wrong, but Winston is NOT America’s quarterback, we needed defense not more #WeaponsforWinston, etc. etc.

  258. Chris Says:

    Well this time, the offense is flat. Such a soft team

  259. bucnut2 Says:

    The Bucs need to rest Winston. He is not ready to play.

  260. Buc'n Since I was 10 Says:

    why does our offense only play one quarter a game?

  261. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Winston sucks!! He over throws everybody except DJax…. he under throws him!! He has a longggggg way to go!!

  262. BuccoDav Says:

    Don’t blame high throws on Evans…

  263. Andrew Says:

    We needed that 1st down, if only to keep the deficit to 7 going into the half. Please defense, please hold them.

  264. AlteredEgo Says:

    Aimless Winston….

  265. Quattrolou Says:

    Lining up 11 yards off.

  266. Jeffrey Yoemans Says:

    Winston can’t put up points, put in Fitz.

  267. bucnut2 Says:

    Defense playing pretty well. Offense Sucks

  268. Biggun Says:

    2 out of 3 ain’t bad… defense playing great special teams playing great where’s the friggin offense… start Fitzpatrick second half…. what we got to loose?

  269. Bucs1856 Says:

    It’s like only 1 side of the ball wants to show up game to game.

  270. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Listen the fumble was on #3….but he’s struggling to carry this team on his shoulders….MOST IMPORTANTLY one of those shoulders…the one he THROWS with is bum. Jay Glazier reported a slight tear and possible off season surgery.

    He’s also suffered two critical drops now from his most trusted receiver.

    There is PLENTY of blame to go around for our horrid first half…the only reason we’re in this game is Carolina sucked too.

  271. ChanEpic Says:

    Panthers are clowning ME13 and Famous J on their sidelines. in our stadium. sheesh.

  272. Warren Sapp Says:

    Nfl nut your the idiot! Open your eyes,how is Winston having his best year? He has 8 fumbles already this year.

  273. Easy Denman Says:

    We all know Winston is a second half QB. Let’s just hope our defense can hold this game to 7-0 at halftime

  274. g720 Says:

    Even if Jameis completes a pass, the receiver has to stop or turn to make the catch. Watch good QB’s who keep the receiver running in stride and getting all the YAK’s.

  275. Ndog Says:

    Jameis must play better. No excuses for this in accuracy and I normally defend him but he is missing every way possible. High, low, to far out front. And when he is accurate we drop the ball or get a stupid penalty.

  276. NFLNut Says:

    The Falcons are getting slapped around by the J-E-T-S … if the Jets win that game they’ll be 4-4 and the defending NFC Champs will be 3-4 … I honestly thought the Jets were dumping all their good players and going to TANK ON PURPOSE this year to get the #1 pick and draft a franchise QB … very strange.

    I would be furious if I was a Jets fan … I would WANT the team to lose every game!

  277. BucFan4Life Says:

    Too early to call Next Year?

    Start with dumping Mike Smith…and tell Koetter to stop letting Raheem call plays.

  278. bucnut2 Says:

    2-5 here we come and then we can talk draft.

  279. Lamarcus Says:


  280. Big Stinky Says:

    Winston is inaccurate as usual

  281. Swanee Says:

    Hey Donut…. 7-0 will most likely be enough to win this game. Come into reality. Need to shake things up at half time and bench those lineman who consistently hold and false start.

  282. NFLNut Says:


    SERIOUS QUESTION: Could it be that our slow starts are due to Koetter not being able to game-plan in advance … that he’s constantly out-coached in regards to preparation and that it takes him a full half of football to figure out what the defense is doing and to get a decent game-plan ready for the 2nd half?


  283. Tb601 Says:

    Where is the play calling from last week.

  284. bucsnorth Says:

    hmmmmmmmmmm so much for turning the tables and coming out of the gates fast on offense. Just horrible to see the lack of urgency or effort on most of the plays. Just watching the game it is so obvious when they are going to run martin right up the middle for no gain. Soooooo many wasted downs. Our play calling is high school level at best. wouldnt be suprised to see carolina march down here at end and score again.

  285. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Block that extra point

  286. dirkdiggler Says:

    @bucsfanforlife shooot i called after the pats loss.

  287. Lamarcus Says:

    Baker and Vh3 came to play. Umm yall boy gmc is checked out. Uninspired flat

  288. tmaxcon Says:

    That is classic Winston… do you really not want him coached up better? 3rd season and he hasn’t realized he isn’t still playing against Wake Forest…

    yet 3 is on pace to set every qb and offensive record in bucs history… Short shighted dumbarses…

    Give me the gambler he will win more than the conservatice pansy arses who want to see a scared team playing with no heart. it’s no coincidence it’s mostly the same losers who support the career losing choirboy gmc who is the undisputed face of the basement years.

  289. Bucamania Says:

    Conte bit on that. So undiscipllned.

  290. AlteredEgo Says:

    It ain’t Koetter….it is Aimless Jameis….

  291. Spicoli Says:

    Glad they leaving mcaffrey open every.single.time

  292. EA Says:

    Go bucs baby, hellz yeah, best season ever.

  293. Rob Says:

    McKaffrey =our weekly HOF Buc slayer. Joke of the league is what we are. Fire Smith at halftime

  294. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    Please someone tell me why Justin Evans isn’t a better option than Conte?

  295. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    TERRIBLE BLITZ. No one got near Cam.

  296. dirkdiggler Says:

    @lamarcus yeah hes gone after this year i think. retire or ask to get traded.

  297. Andrew Says:

    When was the last time we led at the half?

  298. Spicoli Says:

    Against the bears, maybe lol?

  299. DR FEELGOOD Says:

    I rest my case.

  300. Bucamania Says:

    Way to start fast boys.

  301. dirkdiggler Says:

    @tmaxcon i nornally disagree but GMC has mailed it in this season.

  302. AlteredEgo Says:

    Mike Evans will not resign with the Bucs….you heard it first here….WTF would he with Aimless Jameis

  303. cmurda Says:

    Another crap first half

  304. EA Says:

    I hope they bring back blackouts so I don’t have to turn my room.into the den of depression

  305. dirkdiggler Says:

    @alteredego money talks bubba

  306. Bucamania Says:

    You mean the guy with 2 drops in the first half?

  307. MadMax Says:

    M EVANS SUCKS!!!!!!!!

  308. bucnut2 Says:

    What are we doing??? Take a knee!!!

  309. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Have Winston get his shoulder surgery now, tank the rest of the season for a high pick, draft a DE or LT in the first

  310. Chris Says:

    Is Mike Evans going to catch a pass today?

  311. ChanEpic Says:

    where is OJ Howard in the pass game? GRRRRR?!?!? what did we draft him for?

  312. bucnut2 Says:

    ME- agree with you. Let’s play Fitz and have JW get his surgery.

  313. ChanEpic Says:

    @MikeEvansGoat – that may not be such a bad idea.

  314. Bucamania Says:

    I guess Evans is taking a knee this game

  315. dirkdiggler Says:

    @mike evans GOAT not a bad idea. play goodwin more too. the future is now… again with this team. throw justin evans in there too.

  316. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Shut out at half. Glad I’m not there

  317. Rrsrq Says:

    17 secs, down by 10 @ the 25, no rhythm to offense, so against taking a knee you jeopardize players getting injured on a chance play, seriously

  318. Sydney Says:

    My Dad’s had 4 Season Tickets since 1987. He donated the rest of this year to The Boys and Girls Club and he’s not renewing next year.

    He said it’s pointless because they are still YEARS away from being relevant again.

  319. PRBucFan Says:

    Keep telling me about our amazing offense guys!

    Like I said over and over they are invisible during the first half of games.

  320. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Jameis is just not sharp. Could be the shoulder. Can’t fault the defense,as
    many chances as the offense has given Carolina .

  321. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The players have no confidence in this scheme or the coaches, and it shows on the field. Time for a change. Bring in a proven winner.

  322. ChanEpic Says:

    The ME13 pattern is to lose focus when it becomes obvious the season is a wash. Happens every year with this guy.

  323. BuccoDav Says:

    tmaxcon Says:
    October 29th, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Nobody has ever referred to Tom Brady or Joe Montana as being “gunslingers” yet you prefer Favre, who won what, 1 super bowl???

    You, sir, must be shortsighted and easily entertained by shiny objects…

  324. BigMacAttack Says:

    Down by 10. We have them right where we want them. We are so bad lol.

  325. AlteredEgo Says:

    How amny points did the Bucs score…in a league tilted over backwards for offensive football ?….Aimless Jameis

  326. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Tank the season, Draft Saquon Barkley, 3 Dlineman, 2 corners, and a right tackle.

  327. orlbucfan Says:

    10-0. Coaches suck especially Koetter. He needs to go back to being an OC. Smith is a bad joke. I always wondered why Atlanta fired him even after they got in the playoffs. Now, I know. Doubt we’ll have cardiac bucs win today. 🙁

  328. BucFan4Life Says:

    The Bucs do have an amazing offense. Problem is the below average coaching.

  329. Swanee Says:

    Evans has terrible hands. It’s a 50 percent chance he catches it. He does make big plays once in awhile but he is to in consistent as a WR to have him out there every play.

  330. MadMax Says:

    If we can get a new QB in here (Dungey -Syracuse) and get a pass rush and draft another CB and DT over the next 2 years (along with another DC) We might be able to start competing.

  331. Rob Says:

    Evans can’t catch a cold. Suck fest. Koetter and his entire bunch of gutless coaches and pretend athletes can’t do anything correctly. Most inept, sorry excuse of a wanna be NFL team I’ve seen since uh Schiano and Rageem’s clowns. Worst part is these losers have talent. They just suck out loud. This debacle needs to cost jobs. Don’t tolerate this foolishness Glazers

  332. Rojas Says:

    When our best offensive lineman goes down.

  333. MadMax Says:

    Trade Evans and Winston for draft picks NOW!!!!!!!!!!

  334. Bucs14 Says:

    Season over gang. This team has given up. Penalties show their heads are not in the game.

    Time to start talking draft picks.

  335. Chris Says:

    The Panthers beating us with a 1930s, single wing, Mike Shula coached offense that looks more innovative than ours.

  336. BigMacAttack Says:

    Chucky was just spotted walking into the Glazer’s suite.

  337. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I would prefer we draft some DE help in the first. We have a lot of fire power on offense, just a horrible scheme. We can get a rb in the 2nd or 3rd

  338. orlbucfan Says:

    Mike Shula–the yahoo who got Dungy fired–is calling the Panthers’ offense. Talk about insult to injury!

  339. BucEmUp Says:

    Yet another gane of bad accuracy and bad defense. Turning this crap off

  340. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Only down 10. At least we are still in it. 👍

  341. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Well at least Dotson is ok….LMAO!

  342. ChanEpic Says:

    only down by 10 but the Panthers have the ball after the half. They’ll most like score then too.

  343. Brion Says:

    I only came here to get my fix for reading a “taking a knee” reference from a Trump-Tard. Mission accomplished.

  344. DoNUTS Says:

    Josh McNown lighting it up! lol #3 not so much

  345. Bucnjim Says:

    Leave it to the Bucs to prove I an right! The offensive stats are truly for losers! Again down 10–0 halftime. That means in the FIVE games we were down (10 quarters) the Bucs have scored 16 points by the half. Only Two of those games we were getting blown out. So who is really to blame? The precious QB and the offense consistently going three and out then when we do get it going it is penalty after penalty.

  346. bucsnorth Says:

    I think NFLNUT has a valid point. We almost never jump out to a nice lead against anyone. You know like GOOD teams do. And like already stated how can you go from going to TE howard for 2 touchdowns one week and not even look his way next. This team has so many holes to fix its not funny. If you cant get professional players to give a good effort than thats on the coaches. Namely the head coach. Ive been disgusted with the buccaneers before but never this quickly in the season when they had such promise going in. argggggggggggggg

  347. Jeffbuc Says:

    This is the worst coached football team I have ever seen. So predictable on offense the play calling is horrible we have no open receivers. Jameis has to throw in tight windows. And then anytime we get a good play there’s a penalty. And jameis is the worst first half quarterback I have ever seen. Even worse than freeman. But don’t worry joe will sing his praises this week when we are down 20 in the 4th and he throws for 200 yards against a prevent designed to give up yards. And he will have 300 and we will hear about all the records he is going to break. The only records that are breaking is the bucs record.

  348. Jeffrey Yoemans Says:

    10 points is enough when you are playing against Winston.

  349. BuccoDav Says:

    Any rebuttal?

  350. MadMax Says:

    Bucnjim, we’re making too much sense for the minions still stuck on stupid…they cant comprehend it. Its sad really….but is what it is.

  351. Big Stinky Says:

    Got the ball first and still down by 10 at halftime. So much for that first ranked passing game. Always coming from behind

  352. Bighck61 Says:

    Thank goodness for NFL networks RED ZONE I can watch real teams play !

  353. Rob Says:

    With the season on the line(over I mean), the suckaneers show how pansy a$$ they really are. Koetter and his horrific coaching staff owe us a refund. Especially all the fans that paid money to watch this weekly train wreck in person

  354. NFLNut Says:

    MadMax demanding we trade Jameis & Evans … HAHAHA … what a tool

  355. Jimmyjack Says:

    This team plays a mentality weak brand of football. They poorly prepared week in and out. Dropped balls, stupid pentalaties, sloppy turnovers.

    It’s the same thing every week. OUR poorly prepared Bucs play themselves into a hole in the first half and Winston has to try to carry us on his back in the 2nd. We need a HC that will get this team ready to play a professional brand of football.

    This leaderless bunch of coordnitators trying to win games in the film room is providing us fans with nothing but a flat an unmotivated football team. They want a badass football team and so do I.

  356. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    2nd half!! Showtime!

  357. Rrsrq Says:

    We are a second half team, right?

  358. Not there yet Says:

    Uh maybe Mike Evans is angry because it’s a contact year and this team upgraded all it’s weapons only to come out against the Panthers and feature Adam hump. The game plan is complete madness and why would anyone need another year to see that these coaches don’t have a plan.

  359. dirkdiggler Says:

    @madmax absolutely bring him in. Make JW hearn that extention. heat that seat up. competition never hurt nobody.

  360. PRBucFan Says:

    we have an amazing offense you said? LOLOL ok

  361. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LOL…Showtime for who?

  362. Jeffbuc Says:

    Please just blow the whole team up this offseason and start over. Get rid of all the free ride guys. And just bring in a bunch of players who want to play. And bring in some coaches that know what they are doing. Coming out flat every game is on the coaches for not getting the players motivated. If my boss lets me slack at work all day with no consequences you think I’m not going to sit back and read some articles and surf the web. Instead of working my ass off all day.

  363. PRBucFan Says:

    dare I say shades of Free Free

  364. Tackleblockwin Says:

    This O takes a while to wake up most weeks. I’ll keep the tv on and see if they can get back into it. D has not been great today, but better than previous games. We just need a spark. Let’s go Bucs! Wake up time.

  365. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    @Mike the Goat

    Trust me. I want us to address the pass rush in the worst way. Problem is the 2018 class ain’t exactly loaded with top tier edge rushers.

    But Barkley is a bonafide stud.

  366. JohnBoy Says:

    Winston has 8 fumbles already this year. That would seem to be a problem.

  367. MadMax Says:

    Nut, tools are used, usually in a fashion to fix things. I’ll take that.

    But why not? We need better players and draft picks to get them….signing them sure as hll doesnt seem to work!

  368. PRBucFan Says:

    “Last four games, Bucs offense has 20 first-half possessions – 1 TD (vs. Patriots), two field goals, 12 punts, 2 fumble, INT, downs, miss FG.”

  369. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Let’s go Bucs! A new half – make it great!

  370. JohnBoy Says:

    And our kicker has to make the tackle to begin the second half.

  371. Rob Says:

    We have twice the penalty yards as rushing yards in a must win game. These suckaneers have quit. Rout these losers

  372. Jimmyjack Says:

    Yeah Rob. The season basically was on the line. The way I saw it if Dirk was ever going to prove he was capable of getting this team to play a winning brand of football this was his last chance. All we got was the same sorry brand of uninspired unmotivated lame football.

    This guy is a play caller not a leader of men……down by ten and he leaves three wasted timouts in his pocket. He can’t motivate and can’t manage the game even.

  373. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Shoulda never let shep go.

  374. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    You must not watch the games ver close or you would know over half of those “fumbles” are on Ali Marpet learning to play center.

  375. BuccoDav Says:

    Conte sucks!

  376. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Conte PICK!

  377. MadMax Says:

    Good T/O Conte!

  378. ChanEpic Says:

    Conte finally someone played FAST. Like he actually knew what to expect and ANTICIPATED the play. FINALLY!

  379. Bucamania Says:

    There you go Conte!

  380. Rrsrq Says:

    Conte, a play made, now can the offense drive down the field

  381. NFLNut Says:

    MADMAX … sir, you’re certifiable … the Bucs should trade ME & JW … the Raiders should then DEFINITELY dump Carr & Amari … Titans should DEFINITELY dump Mariota & Davis … Falcons should DEFINITELY dump Ryan and Julio who are both having HORRIBLE years … YOU SIR ARE A LOON!

  382. Rob Says:

    Did we actually make a play? Pick six time Jameis

  383. Big Stinky Says:

    INT doesn’t matter, we won’t do anything with it

  384. Bird Says:

    Classic. People say mike Evans sucks.

    Yah. He is having worst game as a buc. No question.

    He is hands down their best player. So please stop making those idiotic comments.

  385. Jimmyjack Says:

    Even if we do come back the first half learned me that Dirk is no HC. His biggest game as a HC and his team is nowhere near being the badass he knows we need to be to contend in this league.

    It’s one thing to want a badass football team it’s another to teach your team how o be one…….get this coordinator dressed in khakis out of here if he can’t figure it out. 31 games in and he still ain’t getting it. Forgive me for assuming he never will

  386. dirkdiggler Says:

    go big feed 11 JW make the faking throw you got this!!!

  387. BuccoDav Says:

    Nice run, lets build on this!

  388. Bobby M. Says:

    The over glorified o-line is again not doing anything consistently well. Games are won in the trenches….We suck on both sides.

  389. Rob Says:

    Lol. God we SUCK. Punt team

  390. Rojas Says:

    Sweezy is horrible.

  391. Quattrolou Says:

    Nice block Doug

  392. ElioT Says:

    This is a joke.

  393. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    We really needed some points on that drive…

  394. Bucamania Says:

    Sweezy and Dougie missed him. terrible.

  395. ElioT Says:

    Anger the Bucs MVP.

  396. BuccoDav Says:

    No, Bobby, you are wrong. The Joes assured us the o line is playing just fine. It’s the running backs who are the problem.

  397. JohnBoy Says:

    Sweezy just got abused on that sack.

  398. Bayers Says:

    Come on bucs !!

  399. denjoe Says:

    C’mon Elite offense #1 in passing, joe says your a great offense line.wtf

  400. Bayers Says:

    SHOtgun plays and some slants

  401. Tb601 Says:

    It seems like they dont want to win.

  402. Jimmyjack Says:

    I really don’t want to be typing when the game is on. But the weak azz effect of the team has completely lost my interest.

    The season on the line and they come out and get pushed around. I’m trying my hardest to just give up caring but it’s so darn hard

  403. dirkdiggler Says:

    next year they need to focus on both lines and theyll be much better off. no more weapons for winston. im all for tanking this season and letting the rookies play lets see what we got.

  404. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Tampa bay Hype, Yucs are back!

  405. Swanee Says:

    Bird. Are you out of your mind. Evans has more dropped passes then anyone in the NFL starting from the beginning of last season. He does make some outstanding catches once in awhile I will give you that, but he drops passes right in his hands consistently.

  406. orlbucfan Says:

    DK is failing as a HC. More Buc karma. Ridiculous and sad. Wish we fans owned the team. They would be 4-2 and winning.

  407. MadMax Says:

    wheres your man crush (Howard) NflNut? Why isnt JW3 hitting him?

  408. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Great job turning that pick into points!

  409. Jimmyjack Says:

    We do have a good offensive line. But they aren’t playing physical. That’s a sin based on the fact that a few of them can be maulers too.

  410. BigMacAttack Says:

    Brion, you’re a dumbass. Joe please start banning the unsolicited politics

  411. cmurda Says:

    Well on the bright side we got those weapons for Winston.

  412. Bucnjim Says:

    Is someone who promoted this offense being number two going to step up and defend their position? McCoy the ghost of Christmas present? Yes!

  413. Bayers Says:

    Target Godwin and oj Howard more please get some RB in the flats please let’s get a couple of slants going I have faith in you

  414. Swanee Says:

    You’re kidding Jöe says ” The offensive line is playing fine”. Better start checking their stats on that one.

  415. Destinjohnny Says:

    That was a Jalen hurts pass

  416. Say What? Says:

    Underthrown on the deep ball… again

  417. PRBucFan Says:

    Y’all wanna keep pretending the Bucs are anything but HORRIBLE?

  418. BuccoDav Says:

    Underthrown again…

  419. Jimmyjack Says:

    Don’t blame Winston. We came out playing one dimensional again. Gotta let your Oline have some fun and bruise the other team…….Instead we now have the panthers Dline building confidence and manhandling us

  420. Bird Says:

    Beirut’s quarterback

  421. Rob Says:

    25 overthrows and he underthrowa that one lol

  422. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    I finally purchased Sunday ticket because i thought this year would be different, but watching complete games this year. Winston misses WAAAAAYYYY to many easy throws

  423. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Move them chains!

  424. Swanee Says:

    Doug Martin is our best player. Always plays and runs hard.

  425. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Run,run,run, screen

  426. Bucnjim Says:

    Here is the really sad part for the McCoy triple teamed fans…… he hasn’t even been doubled and has been seen watching everyone else make plays.

  427. Say What? Says:

    Why Jacquiz there? Didn’t Doug just rip off big runs?

  428. Rrsrq Says:

    Screen pass

  429. AlteredEgo Says:

    Trent Dilfer with a personality….

  430. MadMax Says:

    FreeFree 2.0

  431. BuccoDav Says:

    I wish he could just make decent decisions…

  432. Destinjohnny Says:

    James Bradbury was a third round pick the year vh3 was our 1st round pick

  433. Say What? Says:

    Pass was not catchable.

  434. Gobucs Says:

    Lol. This team is terrible.

  435. Jimmyjack Says:

    All the sudden we start running and big ole 73 is putting a hurt on the panthers……probably too little too late. They took him out of the game plan in the first half and he misses a key back to end a drive.

    This team is just poorly managed top to bottom

  436. cmurda Says:

    Run Quiz. Pfft. Never should that happen

  437. AlteredEgo Says:

    YEAHHH…… we got 3 points !

  438. Bucs1856 Says:

    We can’t blame the kicker this game!!

  439. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Heyyyyyyy! Points, well the FG kicker has been fixed so far!

  440. Big Stinky Says:

    Can’t even get inside the 20 yard line

  441. Bird Says:

    Swanee – please stop using drugs.

    What’s crazy is that your serious. Yah. He’s terrible.

    4000 plus yards and 31 touchdowns. Please stop being a moron

  442. MadMax Says:

    Thank God for our new kicker Patrick Murray….best player on our roster right now!!!!…..who KEEPS THE GAME CLOSE!

    Like I said last week!

  443. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    At least our kicker comes through

  444. BigMacAttack Says:

    If that wasn’t pass interference what is?

  445. Rrsrq Says:

    When you are playing against a good pass rushing team, we threw one screen pass to O.J. Howard, it worked, but we don’t use it again, even to the RBs, that’s play calling

  446. Bucamania Says:

    Once again Dirk and the offense pucker up once they can see the end zone.

  447. Bayers Says:

    Any points is a positive

  448. Big Stinky Says:

    Kick-a$$ offense

  449. Bayers Says:

    COMr on let’s get this stop and move on

  450. Spicoli Says:

    Glad Murray is kicking with confidence

  451. Swanee Says:

    Can’t score touchdowns. Won’t win with field goals.

  452. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    We need a stop… now!

  453. Rrsrq Says:

    Why are you 10yards off of Ed Dickson

  454. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Nice drop for a loss!

  455. MadMax Says:

    Great job Ryan Smith!!!!

  456. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    We need points on this drive.

  457. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Pathetic O line

  458. MadMax Says:

    what kind of play call was that coach K?

  459. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    Vernon has had his best game as a pro….but i also see Mike smith has him closer to the line…And a Ryan Smith sighting

  460. Pa Privateer Says:

    Nice play Ryan Smith!

  461. AlteredEgo Says:

    Nice audibel aimless….

  462. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    That had to hurt.

  463. BuccoDav Says:

    It is hard to believe we can’t take advantage of DJax more…

  464. Wewantgruden Says:

    I guess I will head out and wash the windows on the outside of the house.

  465. cmurda Says:

    Somebody show our coaching staff to the ball store. They need to buy a few pairs of balls.

  466. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m starting to flucking hate Dirk and his whack azz plays

  467. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Come on defense, this is turnover territory.

  468. Wewantgruden Says:

    You now see how mediocre JW is when the Defense that he is up against is not in “prevent D”.

  469. BuccoDav Says:

    Kirk freekin’ Cousins didn’t seem to have Any problems finding Djax…

  470. Bird Says:

    Altered ego-

    Best nickname yet

    Pretty funny

  471. MadMax Says:

    @Wewantgruden…yup, I have to replace the headlights on my truck…trying to hang in there though since its close.

  472. BucFan4Life Says:

    Koetter is so predictable. No surprises. Getting outcoached again.

  473. Rrsrq Says:

    Life of a Buc fan, can’t just give you a weekend off by just beating a team. Offense, defense, special teams, can we get a game of complimentary football.

  474. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Really have no idea as to why O.J. Is hardly getting any snaps today, but We have Humphries in there on every play.

  475. Jimmyjack Says:

    Anybody see Winston trying to motivate his players on the sideline?

    He does this every second half when we are behind. That’s when you usually see us start to look like a pro team. He’s doing what Dirk can’t do. We have talented players that come out unprepared to play against other teams that are motivated and ready to play.

    It’s why we have scored 1 TD in the first half all season. It shouldn’t be Winston job to inspire this team every week.

  476. BucFan4Life Says:

    This right here is how you lose your job.

  477. denjoe Says:

    Can we have the whole team show up for one f’ing game please?

  478. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Great stop!

  479. Bayers Says:

    OJ Howard

  480. denjoe Says:

    We can do this, C’mon guys!

  481. Bayers Says:

    Use oj Howard more

  482. Swanee Says:

    Why is Dirk not putting Fitz in. His stubbornness will cost him his head coaching job. Terrible hire by this GM. I like JW as a person but he is not consistent to continue to start. I understand it is not all his fault how pathetic the offense is but QB makes the biggest impact on any NFL team.

  483. dirkdiggler Says:

    dougie got scaed lol

  484. Wewantgruden Says:

    Jameis is going by to get Doug Martin killed

  485. BlogTalkFootball Says:


  486. NFLNut Says:

    The Raiders are getting slaughtered by the Bills and Carr is doing so much worse than Jameis did against them … the Raiders should trade Carr and Amari and let MadMax be their gm … HAHAHA … stupid

  487. Wewantgruden Says:

    Another turnover by dum redneck JW

  488. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ball game ladies. Can’t even pick up a blitz

  489. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Dotson getting rag dolled. Tank the season. Tank tank tank.

  490. Alstott up the gut Says:

    Hahahaha!!! He’s the worst!!!

  491. Rrsrq Says:

    Who’s fault, the fans of the Bucs for watching this

  492. Big Stinky Says:

    We are NEVER going to win with Winston

  493. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Season’s over…

  494. Buc68 Says:

    That was a TD. Would have been a tie game if his arm doesn’t get hit.

  495. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    The stupidity of this fan base is unreal. That pick is on the Oline. Dumbarses.

  496. denjoe Says:

    What an awesome offensive line.

  497. BucFan4Life Says:

    Blocking? What blocking? Wonder if that was taught in camp

  498. Bucs1856 Says:

    Atleast if we are going to tank have JW get his shoulder fixed and let Fitzfinish the season.

  499. Jimmyjack Says:

    The more this game goes on the better the Panthers defensive front is getting. Dirk don’t know how to manage a game. He has just played right into their strength.

  500. Bayers Says:

    Well bucs fan it don’t look good right about now anythings possible but starting to lose hope

  501. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We want Gruden,
    U obviously know nothing about Football. How in the hell was an unblocked dB Winston’s fault?

  502. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Y’all need to stop watching real football and go back to playing madden.

  503. Wewantgruden Says:

    He can’t move the ball unless it is prevent D when the Bucs are way behind.

  504. AlteredEgo Says:

    Aimless Winston…..Local media…ain’t nothing you can cover up now….same sheet he did in college….WTF kind of fungo pass was that ?

  505. dirkdiggler Says:

    tank it !!! let JW heal that shoulder

  506. Destinjohnny Says:

    If we can get Gruden a really good gm….
    You can’t let him have any say in personnel

  507. Bucamania Says:

    Hanging their heads. Walking off the field. Let;s go! Pick it up.

  508. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    @mike the goat

    I swear it’s like all these people are inbred simpletons.

  509. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Defense! Get the ball back!

  510. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Go get Urban. His heart problems have subsided.

  511. Rojas Says:

    We want Gruden.

    You’re just hating on JW for no reason now.. oline not blocking is his fault now ? Lmfao..

  512. Buck Rodgers Says:

    Yucs football

  513. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Dumbest fans in the league right here @ JBF

  514. Defense Rules Says:

    Enough with the turnovers. At what point will Koetter say that Jameis isn’t cutting it for whatever reason (hurt shoulder, limited practice) and switch to Fitz to give us even a small chance of coming back?

  515. cmurda Says:

    I agree with prior responses. Put Fitz in, JW gets surgery and get that high pick. This team is garbage. Let’s not kid ourselves

  516. 911bucs Says:

    Get JW out, his injury is a detriment to this offense right now.

  517. ElioT Says:

    All these weapons.

    Defense actually playing ok.

    3 f**king points.

    Den of Depression.

  518. NFLNut Says:

    AlteredEgo … how ‘s FSU been since Jameis left? GARBAGE …

  519. Bird Says:

    Godwin had his man beat by 10 yards for a TD.

    James wanted to stare him down longer cause that’s what he does.

  520. BuccaneEric75 Says:


  521. Wewantgruden Says:

    I can’t wait to see the post game press conference. Same old words, we got to get better I got to get better. JW is too ignorant to be a NFL QB. 27 on his Wonderlic. Nuff said

  522. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    Kill yourself you brain dead slack jaw mouth breather. You know nothing about football.

  523. Jimmyjack Says:

    Blake…..Of course Dotson is gonna get ragdolled if you drop back this many times………Dirk was in the film room most likely when you the eagles were on national TV writing a basic book on how to take it to the Panthers.

  524. MadMax Says:

    So, again, we’re picking top 5-7…what positions?


    Im sticking with DE and CB first 2 picks…..unless RB Barkley falls to us. (Id have to go for that one) He’s going top 3 or 4.

  525. Andrew Says:

    This games over. They’ll at least make the field goal and there’s no way we get 10 (let alone 7) points in 9 minutes.

  526. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Boy, did Evans get beat or what?

  527. denjoe Says:

    Who’s out there for GM and head coach?

  528. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    In what universe is that not a push off.

  529. denjoe Says:

    It’s over!

  530. Bucamania Says:

    There’s the dagger. This team is awful. Getting what they deserve.

  531. Easy Denman Says:

    That was on Ryan Smith

  532. Andrew Says:

    We are a bad football team. We’re not playing like a bad team, we ARE one. Such a disappointment.

  533. ElioT Says:

    Season over.

  534. Jimmyjack Says:

    Ok max. You were right and I was wrong. I took my blinders off at halftime

  535. Wewantgruden Says:

    Time for Gruden!!!!!!!

  536. Rrsrq Says:

    That’s all folks

  537. Big Stinky Says:

    That’s the dagger

  538. crazy Says:


  539. Jorge Says:

    Wake up Tampa Ba Winston is the problem. Dumb as hell. No brains and lots of fake hype no substance.

  540. Say What? Says:

    This team isn’t gutless.

  541. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    If they were going to score a TD… they could have at least thrown it to Funchess so I could have gotten some points.

  542. NJBucsFan Says:

    This team is done. Draft talk begins in Oct yet again

  543. HeyHeyTampaBay Says:

    Stick a fork in us, this season is over!

  544. Say What? Says:

    Is gutless. (Autocorrect)

  545. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    Evans there to make a play his ball skills on that play??? i dunno what i was looking at

  546. denjoe Says:

    This team has multiple personality disorder from game to game.

  547. Sydney Says:




  548. Sickofit Says:


  549. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Winston really is the problem with this team…well, one of them.

  550. cmurda Says:

    Weapons for Fitz time

  551. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It has to be DE or OL with our top 5 pick. Let Winston get his shoulder surgery this week. We don’t need him missing all of training camp with our new coaches and new Offense.

  552. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    Was that GMC’s or Douggies blown coverage?

  553. Bucamania Says:

    On a 3rd and 16 lol

  554. MadMax Says:

    Its all good jimmy….im not a hater, just calling it as i see it.

  555. Quattrolou Says:

    3 and 16 TD. So pathetic. Bad coverage. No fire. GMC looked annoyed that he had to make a tackle. Offense is so conservative, I can’t take it, where is the skyline bridge. J/k. Who am I fooling I’ll still sit here and Watch of these games and let this team continue to disappoint me.

  556. denjoe Says:

    See ya later Jason Licht, nice try!

  557. AlteredEgo Says:

    Bet Koetter was not on the Aimless Winston draft pick….until the pick was given to him as OC….

  558. 813bucboi Says:

    Defense came to play…cbs playing up close have tight coverage…. Offense can’t execute… Winston off today… We in trouble….GO BUCS!!!

  559. ClearwaterWes Says:

    I thought a successful season would have been 10-6 one game better than last year but in typical fashion we regressed. Even with a 3 game win streak we would be 5-5 not good enough.

  560. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    Buccs for Barkley

  561. dirkdiggler Says:

    yall really thought this game was do or die? the season was over after the pats game. yall silly

  562. ElioT Says:

    I guess they need more weapons for Winston.

  563. Should of been a jags fan Says:

    I have been a bucs fan for 25 years, seen a lot of ugly football. I’ve never felt like turning my back more on this team then I do now. I will send all my bucs gear back to the team. I’m embarrassed to be a bucs fan, never again! DIRK / SMITH are the worst coaches we ever had

  564. denjoe Says:

    Can we do that play where we just keep pitching back?

  565. Bucs14 Says:

    Finally Winston hit someone in stride.

  566. Quattrolou Says:

    We must lead the league in FAC. Falling after the catch.

  567. JohnBoy Says:

    Nice holding Donovan.

  568. Swanee Says:

    Keeping holding boys. Buc coaches don’t have a problem with it.

  569. Bucamania Says:

    This offense only works against the prevent defense.

  570. Bucs14 Says:

    This offensive line sucks. Penalties killing us.

  571. EA Says:

    I wonder what Vegas saw in the team to have them 2.5 points favorite.

  572. Bighck61 Says:

    What the f is wrong with 76

  573. Bucamania Says:

    FAC. Hilarious MIke Evans could coach the fall after the catch.

  574. orlbucfan Says:

    When are these coaches going to get the message about the refs? Bucs Pull ahead and this nonsense will stop.

  575. JonBuc Says:

    “Licht’s Out….uh huh…trash trash trash!”

  576. Ed Says:

    So Koetter’s second year and a major regression in very phase of his team.

    Tampa fans have been conned every year that there is going to be change of fortune yet it’s the same crap. With season on the line, playing at home against a Panther team doing nothing special, you fall behind 14 points with 8 minutes left, you are just giving your fans no hope.

    We deserve a decent product not more garbage football.

    It’s a Bucs life!
    NFL is a league of parity but organization is in loser mode for 10 years now!

  577. denjoe Says:

    It’s like he throws at them instead of to them.

  578. Bucamania Says:


  579. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Good job, Winston! ………

  580. DoNUTS Says:

    #3 overthrow and then the INT in the gut of the LB….bring back Dilfer!

  581. BuccoDav Says:

    Great route by Kuechly there, and JW3 hit him in stride…

  582. Wewantgruden Says:

    HahahahahahahhahahhhhhhHhhhh. LMAO

  583. DB55 Says:

    Welp! Wtf do I know?

  584. 813bucboi Says:

    Still no pass rush but dbs played well overall…. Evans still got work to do…. Good to see Smitty make an adjustment with the cbs…. Wish that #1 passing offense would’ve showed up… Really could’ve used that today…GO BUCS!!!

  585. Bighck61 Says:

    2-5 start rating that draft board

  586. Rrsrq Says:

    Miss Evans but not Kuechly, is he that good or we just making him look that good

  587. Easy Denman Says:

    I’m done with this team….for this week. This is ridiculous

  588. ElioT Says:


    Put in Fitz

  589. denjoe Says:

    WTF they will blame it on not throwing in practice.

  590. DC_BUCS_FAN Says:

    SMH I’m signing off

  591. Bucs14 Says:

    America’s QB sure pads the stats for defending teams with sacks and picks. He is definitely is not improving.

  592. Mitch Says:

    Jamies is playing hurt. Sit him down.

  593. MadMax Says:


  594. Jman Says:

    PUT jameis on the titans and they are 1-6

  595. Jimmyjack Says:

    Don’t worry guys our offensive passing yards are on cue. Tampas Man crush on Dirk will surely stay alive when this year ends because I’m sure the Glazers are judging his ability to coach in this league based on that.

  596. BuccoDav Says:

    But, But, but…hes a gunslinger… look at the yards he racks up!

    In garbage time…

  597. FR Says:

    Who u gonna blame this week?

  598. Gobucs Says:


  599. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Jon Gruden
    Jimbo Fisher
    Matt Patricia
    Jim Schwartz
    Kris Richard
    In that order

  600. Wewantgruden Says:

    Give me a G!!!!!! Give me a R. Give me a U. Give me a D. Give me an E. Give me a N.

  601. orlbucfan Says:

    Koetter just lost this game. I love my team. We fans should have always owned this team. Go Bucs!!

  602. Rico Says:

    Wake me up in September. Screw the draft, it doesn’t matter who we have on this team. Garbage organization. Totally unwatchable.

  603. Bighck61 Says:

    Trade D jacks and TJ wards for more draft picks

  604. DB55 Says:

    Season Over!

  605. AlteredEgo Says:

    Aimless…….never could…never will….and the future of the NFL is mobile….accurate QB’s….folks I’ve them all…..Jameis is fatally flawed as a passer

  606. Yorkshire Buc Says:

    Listening on line from the uk. From the noise made by the crowd you’d think it was a home game for the Panthers.

  607. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Remember, Tampa passed on Luke Kuechley, he was there when we picked

  608. dirkdiggler Says:

    Tanking is ok but please dont let Licht draft again. dnt like GM or Koetter. Would be happy to get fid of both. wish Glazers would pull trigger now and not make us suffer the rest of the season.

  609. 813bucboi Says:

    Winston was bad today…. Simple as that….GO BUCS!!!

  610. NFLNut Says:


    Jameis’ INT % is higher than Dak’s now … it was actually lower and he had a higher comp % than Dak on the season coming into this game … it’s been reported that Jameis actually has a partial TEAR in his shoulder and surgery has been recommended but he’s playing through it … I DO NOT WANT TO SEE HIM TURN INTO ANOTHER ANDREW LUCK THOUGH


  611. Bucs14 Says:

    We should have drafted Mariota.

  612. DBS Says:

    And the excuses will continue.

  613. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Our defense sucks

  614. JWSUCKS Says:


  615. Bucamania Says:

    Ok NOW the season is over. What a joke. These guys don’t care.

  616. NFLNut Says:


  617. cmurda Says:

    Nobody on this coaching staff can be defended anymore

  618. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    It really sucks, to have a football team that sucks

  619. Big Stinky Says:

    Was that INT the OL’s fault too?

  620. Bucs1856 Says:

    F****ing JW sir him down. Sorry you FSU homers he will never be accurate. You won a national championship becasue your defense was amazing and Dalvin Cook was a man beast. Just admit that your “America’s Quarterback” is garbage. You cried for weapons we got you weapons. Then what does he do nothing. The blaming Koetter is a joke when the QB is the one who throws the ball and makes the decisions. You can say it’s Koetters playing calling but how would we know if we don’t put in someone else. If it fails after another QB is in then I understand but da*m Winston is our problem right now.

  621. 907BucsFan Says:

    franchise QB my ass over throws a TD then a pick short of the 1st down if winston dont start learnin he’ll be freeman in no time

  622. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bucs 14
    Get back on your short bus

  623. Swanee Says:

    Keep over throwing JW, And now another interception. Well, sorry Fitz you deserved to be in there today . But you have a gutless coach who won’t make a decision and it shows he does not coach to win. JW is going to have to go at this point.

  624. 813bucboi Says:

    From where I was sitting in the stadium, Mike and djax look like they’ve had enough… Mike dropped some passes but Winston was off all game….GO BUCS!!!!

  625. BuccoDav Says:

    If I wad a travel agent in Tampa, I’d be calling Bucs players to schedule their vacations…

  626. Bird Says:

    So funny that it’s koetter s fault. It’s lights fault. Guys Jameis seems to be a great kid. I was surprised. Great leader

    I want my qb to win games and he plays one good game then has 3 bad ones. Who cares about stats but the joes. He gets those mainly in prevent time anyway.

    He is still young but this is year 3 and this is not good enough. Any good qb would put of filthy numbers with all these weapons

  627. Bucnjim Says:

    Welcome to the den of depression…..Dillly Dilly. Cheers to everyone who touted this piss poor offense as a top unit in the league. For the rest of this dismal season please keep this fantasy to yourself.

  628. DR FEELGOOD Says:


  629. Onebadbuc Says:

    We suck I’m done piss on this team they would rather save money then win good job guys must say let’s blow it up and start over! That’s the way it is as buc

  630. Ndog Says:

    My only question is how can anyone that calls them self a fan post lmaf on this thread? You are no fan.

  631. 907BucsFan Says:

    dead on 1856

  632. Quattrolou Says:

    So Rivera wasn’t going to challenge so the clock wouldn’t stop. So we call a timeout so he can challenge.

  633. AlteredEgo Says:

    WOW !!! Luke Kuelky was chug’n instant med’s after he took himself out of the game….that was a”special” cup….Panama Lewis style

  634. Broy34isTiredofNegativity(GoAwayMaxi) Says:

    It’s time to give someone else a shot at this team. Licht hasn’t drafted a pass rush and it’s killing us. Koetter hasn’t developed Winston one iota. I agree Winston has to play better period. His shoulder is bothering him but I just wanna see someone else get a shot at developing the best statistical young QB in a generation. Minor tweaks do the trick. But Koetter has failed this team licht has failed this team and it’s time to turn the page. Yes licht has drafted some players and missed on many picks simple as that. This fan base wants Chucky back. Make it happen. He’s been watching for years and guaranteed no what works

  635. Wewantgruden Says:

    Jameis: 18 of 33 with two Pics and a fumble. He will probably save his day by scoring a TD while the Panthers are in prevent D

  636. Rrsrq Says:

    Only the Bucs would call time out and allow the other team to challenge the spot, even if it is not a first down I wouldn’t be surprised if Panthers go for it

  637. NFLNut Says:


    BUCS1856 …. the Noles have been garbage since Jameis left … and … DALVIN COOK WASN’T EVEN ON THE TEAM WHEN JAMEIS LED THEM TO THE TITLE … IDIOT!


  638. JabooBuc Says:

    Lot of idiots on this site. Jameis had two red zone first downs called back by holding calls and resulting in 1st and 20’s. you can’t win in this league that way. They are called penalties for a reason.

  639. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    U sound slow
    Dalvin was a non factor that season as we had freeman, so explain how EJ Manuel didn’t win a championship with the same team?

  640. Bird Says:

    The person that said jameis finally hit someone in stride on that pick was the comment of the day

  641. Easy Denman Says:

    Somehow the Joes on here will blame Doug Martin for this loss

  642. PRBucFan Says:

    Winston is 100% without a doubt regressing this season.

  643. MadMax Says:

    TRADE FREEFREE 2.0!!!!!!!!!!!

  644. Swanee Says:

    NFL nut…. Mariota is much better then JW. Are kidding?

  645. NFLNut Says:


    Like I said above … BRUCE ARIANS HAS A MANCRUSH ON JAMEIS WINSTON AND HE HELPED LUCK (who turns the ball over a ton) and even turned old man Carson Palmer into a borderline MVP candidate … and word is he’s not return to the Cardinals … I LOVE BRUCE ARIANS!


  646. Wewantgruden Says:

    The sad thing is I’m going to New Orleans to watch the game next week

  647. PRBucFan Says:

    Y’all can keep defending his terrible play all you want but it isn’t going to change reality. Doesn’t look anything like a franchise QB right now.

  648. BuccoDav Says:


  649. Jeffrey Yoemans Says:

    Winston was not worthy of #1 pick.

  650. denjoe Says:

    How many sacks is that?

  651. Ed Says:

    Not even competitive in front of home crowd. Winston isn’t the QB Joe says he is. The franchise has to be led by him and he has to carry the team but he isn’t up to it.

    Will Joe admit,that JW isn’t clutch

  652. Rob Says:

    2-5! Fire someone tonight! We aren’t bad we are horrific

  653. 813bucboi Says:

    1856… That was dovonte Freeman but I hear you…. We 0-8 when Winston throw 40 times or more…. Last I looked he had 35atts….GO BUCS!!!

  654. Jimmyjack Says:

    You guys can call Winston what you want but he was good in the first half. Unprepared players around him were caught dropping balls, missing blocks and committing penalties.

    Your not gonna drop back Winston all day against nasty defences in this league and expect him to do all the work. Carolinas Dline destroyed us today. Philly wrote a perfect game script on how to handle this team…….Dirk didn’t listen and stubbornly came out with the same tired script that’s been failing us all season. This team comes out unprepared every dam week and I really had a hope Dirk would feel the pressure and have his team NFL ready. Too much talent for this team to play deflated football and Winston be the culprit

  655. AlteredEgo Says:

    Draft a new QB 1st round 2018…..let it sort itself out….

  656. Bird Says:

    Uzbekistan’s quarterback.

  657. Swanee Says:

    Ndog, who says anything about being a fan. Most of us are stating the facts. A Poorly coached with little true NFL talent Bucs team.

  658. Wewantgruden Says:

    Jameis has got to wash his hands after eating that greasy fried chicken.

  659. Ed Says:


  660. g720 Says:

    Jameis may have all the heart in the world, but ask any coach if you can improve the accuracy of a QB. Freeman had all the intangibles, but he was so inaccurate too. You can’t teach a QB to be accurate in the NFL.

  661. Rrsrq Says:


  662. Bighck61 Says:

    What the hell was THAT?

  663. denjoe Says:

    Mr. Licht do you see now why you build a teams defense first?

  664. ElioT Says:

    Embarrassing, shameful performance.

  665. NFLNut Says:

    SWANEE … Mariota SUCKS … he’s a gimmick QB … Tennessee is all about the run and him throwing to wide-open guys off play action and even with that his comp % is low, his INT rate was higher than JW’s coming into this game, he’s one of the lowest rated RZ QBs in the NFL and he has thrown **** TWO *** non-screen TD passes ALL YEAR LONG … I’ve go Titans fan friends that want the team to draft a new QB … HE SUCKS

  666. Day1BucFan Says:

    Screw you #WeaponsforWinston

  667. Sydney Says:

    What? Thus is will go on and on and on….maybe new ownership?

    But WHO are they going to draft that will make this team even marginally better next season?

  668. Jeffrey Yoemans Says:

    America’s QB= 3 f’n points

  669. FR Says:

    Let me guess……… My shoulder was hurting

  670. Onebadbuc Says:

    Glazers need to rethink this whole ownership thing glad your making money while we suffer!

  671. Jimmyjack Says:

    Nice stat 813…….. I bet that win % is on par with any team that plays Carolina and with as many deep drop backs as we showed them today

  672. Ocala Says:

    Gruden! Gruden! Gruden!

  673. BucFan4Life Says:

    This is a coaching failure. Top to bottom. The entire staff is rotten.

  674. PRBucFan Says:

    Time to start looking for other possible answers at QB along with coaching.

    Its a shame because as a leader he is the best you could possibly find. Sadly accuracy/decision making are probably the most important things a franchise QB needs. Winston lacks them both.

  675. 79bucfan Says:

    Season is over.

  676. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    tank the season. Draft Barkley. Get a new left tackle. Move Smith to Right tackle, and draft all Dline and Corners.

  677. MadMax Says:

    Thanks Mr. Murray for your effort!!!! Well Done Sir!!!!

    The only one playing good right now!!!!

  678. Warren Sapp Says:

    Stop blame the Head coach,he’s not out there throwing Int. It’s the lame ass Qb, the team drafted #1 over all three years ago! GMC,DeSean,and there are more players that are a waste of money,some changes need to be made with these over paid player’s!!

    P.s Bucs fans the season is over and it’s only week 8..

  679. BucFan4Life Says:

    Maybe move Winston to head cheerleader

  680. BuccoDav Says:

    Joe. Don’t wait until the end of the game this week…shut this board down now!

  681. Onebadbuc Says:

    Winston is more worried about his iron man status then the win

  682. Bucsfan107 Says:

    Winston sucks

  683. Jimmyjack Says:

    Anybody remember last year when Quiz ran all over Carolina? We got the same basic Oline vs their same basic Dline.

    What happened to that game plan? And why exactaly did we change it? I’d love to hear the answer to that Q if any Tampa reporter had the stones to ask it

  684. MadMax Says:

    I take that back, Mr. Anger….also playing good!

  685. Smokeymountainbucfan Says:

    Gators fired Jim! Bucs please fire this joke of a freaking coach! I’ve been the voice of an idiot all year, we suck
