Lavonte David Points To Bad Practice Habits

October 17th, 2017

The first step to any solution is identifying the problem.

It seems Bucs captain Lavonte David has done that.

Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network yesterday, David was asked about what caused the brutal start in Arizona and/or what can prevent it.

David said fixing waning intensity leading up to games will be key.

“I think it all starts, you know, with practice habits,” David said. “I think it all starts with practice habits leading up to the week. You know, there’s been some periods where you’re not going as hard, and the next period you’re going hard, just dropoffs and things like that. So we made an emphasis in the locker room, you know, we gotta have a better sense of urgency. We’re coming out to play a football game, you know, we’re coming out to play football, when you step on that field you better be ready from the first snap to the last snap. We gotta do a better job of that.”

Later David added, “Everybody gotta have the same mindset, same attitude every time they come on the field — that they’re going to come out here and it’s going to be a physical, hard, no-BS football game. That’s just the type of mentality we have to have.”

Joe can’t stomach typing anything else on this one.

After a Tuesday players day off, practice resumes tomorrow.

    blah blah blah it’s all the same ole excuses and bs to justify a heartless effort and performance by a defense with ZERO LEADERSHIP

  2. Bucsfanman Says:

    Hindsight is 20/20. He’s a Captain, right? So, he sees this and does nothing to fix it. Isn’t a Captain supposed to take responsibility, wave his magic wand, and make the team play like 11 JJ Watts?!

  3. Elvis In STL Says:

    So… a weak training camp, extra time off because of the hurricane (no one’s fault), an extra day on west coast trips for ‘down time,’ and light practices.

    Seems like a recipe for slow starts to me.

    I understand wanting to be a ‘players coach’ and trying to avoid injury, but who cares if the guys ‘like’ you and are healthy if the team keeps losing?

    Great leaders know when to push and when to ease off. C’mon Dirk, get your guys ready to play!

  4. unbelievable Says:

    This has been an issue since training camp.


  5. Cobraboy Says:


    And it’s a reflection on coaching. AND team captains ability as “leaders.”

    There is a lot of weak-minded attitudes, fear and dysfunction on the Bucs team.

  6. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    Hey same old crap. We got rid of the coach that worked us hard, we got the easy going coach so we can slack. USMNT did the same crap. The end result… excuses and bad execution. Iron sharpens Iron, Iron cuts marshmallows. Not much Iron in this bunch.

  7. BigMacAttack Says:

    LD is a baller. He’s spot on with this. Mike Smith is a good coach as well and I have zero doubt they’ll turn this defense around quickly.

  8. Kobe Faker Says:

    “HOT DAMN”

    pewterreport is going after Koetters throat!!!

    No doubt pewterreport is backed by the bigwigs(Glazers)

    Lovie Smith

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    Their 2-3 which could be better but before you know it they’ll be 7-3 and all will be well in Bucland.
    Go Bucs!!!

  10. nate123456 Says:

    This team is so up and down.. mostly down…

  11. Mike Johnson Says:

    What a great plausible pretext to hide behind..Bad practice habits. I’ll be sure to tell my boss at project is incomplete because. I just could not finish it. See how well that goes over before..I pick up my last paycheck! The Tampa Bay Bucs are 31st…31ST in points allowed per game. How many teams we got in the NFL? Come on fellow Buckaroos…lets here it gang..get your hands in the air..Lets welcome without further adue…The SOB’S (same ole bucs)

  12. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @BigMacAttack yeah but he’s not a leader unfortunately. That defense needs someone in their face. GMC wont do it. Great player, not a leader. This defense needs a LEADER.

  13. BigMacAttack Says:

    Licht and Koetter aren’t going anywhere. This is good team that just lost they’re focus. The sky’s not falling regardless what anyone says. Fitz needs to help Jameis though especially in the pocket. We got this.

  14. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    After Buffalo runs for 200+ on them, it’s gonna be full on drama with this team. Hang on to your butts, bucs fans.

  15. tmaxcon Says:

    good team win… this is not a good team. it’s a team that is consumed with the losing culture and ZERO LEADERSHIP ON DEFENSE

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    unbelievable Says:

    “This has been an issue since training camp.


    This has been an issue since….forever.

    I’m starting to think our city and area is too laid back for a football team. guys move here. Settle in, lay out by the pool in….October. I think players soak up the laid back area too much after being here awhile. I’ve actually always used this as a semi-excuse as to why so many FA’s don’t make it here, but a lot of FA’s don’t make it round the league form team to team.

    Perhaps when the team starts to REALLY suck at home. All the fans should take a knee in protest. Let them show that on those fancy new screens.

    Go Bucs! (Where I have no idea)

  17. BigMacAttack Says:

    LD leads by example and when Kwon comes back, BAM!!!
    I still like the idea of a 3-4 D and these guys are built for it.

  18. Eric Says:

    Three “you knows”

    That Peterson td run right through a huge hole in the middle with nobody touching the guy was one of the worst plays in bucs history.

    Nobody even considered making a tackle. Nor even really cared that he scored. Dude limped all the way to the end zone.

    Reminded me of when a one legged OJ Simpson beat us when he finished out with the 49er’s.

    It is sickening beyond belief.

  19. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Tmax isn’t capable of posting without a shot at his failed love interest. It’s so obvious, and extremely sad. I feel sorry for him.

    This team has shown they can play with their backs against the wall. We did it last year, and we are at the point this year too. They seem to believe teams are going to lay down and let them beat them. That’s just not going to happen.

    We just can’t put together a complete game. If the offense plays good, the defense is horrible, and vice versa. We can’t get any rhythm offensively. Defensively, we have no pass rush. These have to get fixed, and now.

  20. unbelievable Says:

    Lol 87 I find myself having the same thoughts about the team almost every season as well. Is it the area? Dolphins and Jags suffer the same way? At some point you wonder if the Bucs are just cursed?

    I posted this in another thread, but I look at this season like this:

    The offensive struggles can be corrected. There is talent at every single position. Dirk used to be a great offensive coordinator.

    But the defense has 2 issues I just don’t see improving this year. The pass rush and VH3. Maybe we can generate a pass rush if we start blitzing linebackers and doing more 3-4 alignments, but we haven’t Mike Smith do much adapting or changing so far, despite speaking about that (scheming to fit players strengths) a lot when he was hired.

  21. LakeLand Says:

    41 years of frustration.It’s not easy being a Buc fan.

  22. bucs_365 Says:

    The intensity can’t hide the fact that Hargreaves can’t cover anybody. Time to start Ryan Smith and move Hargreaves to the bench… permanently. Never liked that pick.

  23. Tackleblockwin Says:

    We have the talent on this team to win 9-10 games. Unfortunately we don’t have the mentality.

  24. tmaxcon Says:

    Hawaiian Buc

    my love interests are fine thank you. just stick to the facts that your mancrush once again led a piss poor effort and a flat defense in an important game…

    i will give gmc a 5 for the adorable I am pissed off little stomp after he and his girls already gave up 31. His fake frustration was very adorable. maybe next time he should try and get pissed off before the captain and his mates surrender 31pt quicker than a cheap date at checkers

  25. Lamarcus Says:

    Wake up Hawaiian. At least some of are getting real. We was alarmed and now it shows. We are not good today. Is it an easy fix? Idk. But u Hawaiian are as blind as Msmith in Arizona cards stadium. This can’t get over the hump until a bold move happens: gutting it’s so called stars and giving them up for rice. We can do better without them

  26. tmaxcon Says:

    8 years of smiles, excuses and a full time residence in the basement….oh the glorious gmc years.

  27. 813bucboi Says:

    So… a weak training camp, extra time off because of the hurricane (no one’s fault), an extra day on west coast trips for ‘down time,’ and light practices.
    Seems like a recipe for slow starts to me….


    and i’ll take it a step further….dirk has been treating these players like they’ve won something!!!!…they haven’t won anything!!!!….GO BUCS!!!!

  28. 813bucboi Says:

    This team has shown they can play with their backs against the wall. We did it last year….

    WTF?!!!!!…WHEN?….against Dallas last year?….or the second time we played the saints?….that’s when our backs were against the wall fighting for a playoff spot…..get real…GO BUCS!!!

  29. sorryitriggeredyou Says:

    @bucs_365 I would go with that. But put Mclain on the bench and move VHIII to nickle.

  30. Eric Says:

    I wish he would quit talking about how talented we are.

    Just makes himself look worse.

  31. Supersam Says:

    Now coach same problems. Maybe it’s just me but Keotter don’t look comfortable on the sidelines, hard to explain. Looks out of sorts, the pressure may have got to him. There was some majorly high expectations on this team this year. I don’t think coach K was up to the task.

  32. Supersam Says:

    New coach

  33. Bucsfanman Says:

    @unbelievable- Did you refer to yourself in 3rd person?! “Unbelievable”?!

    @Lakeland- I’m with you. 40+ and counting…..ugh! C’mon man!

    @87- You’re probably right. The only thing I can think of right now is the pool and a fruity cocktail!

  34. tmaxcon Says:

    vh3 could not make a pop warner team therefore nickel is out of the question. he will never be a nfl cb. gym teacher or possibly Glennon, Murphy and Bell Insurance could use a undersized defensive salesman.

  35. Bucsfanman Says:

    Come to think of it, I have a “bad habit”! Watching BAD football!

    If only I were a bandwagon fan. Nope, can’t do it, back to the flogging!!!

  36. Bucsfanman Says:

    tmax- He couldn’t even cover Bell or Murphy right now! That’s saying something!

  37. tmaxcon Says:

    no kidding.. with the afro i think bell has a foot on vh3…

  38. B Coburn Says:

    If you rwally want to send a message about practicing hard.. discipline or cut swaggy period. ..coincidence he comes on board and we hear practice intensity is lacking? Probably over simplified UT can’t be helping.. certainly one of the variables

  39. Bucsfanman Says:

    Kenny Bell’s afro has a better chance of catching a pass than Hargreaves has at defending it! There, I said it!

  40. JMarkBuc Says:

    Big Mac says:

    Licht and Koetter aren’t going anywhere. This is good team that just lost they’re focus. The sky’s not falling regardless what anyone says. Fitz needs to help Jameis though especially in the pocket. We got this.

    If this team doesn’t turn it around right now and make the playoffs, this staff is done. Count on it. Bad practice habits, who is that on? Sheesh. I think DK was just happy to get an OC job after being fired in ATL (who hired him). Then the HC job just fell in his lap. ” sure I’ll be head coach, why not?” Clearly he does not have what it takes. And MS? Don’t get me started.

  41. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    These aren’t pop Warner football players. You can’t blame the captains if some of the guys aren’t ready to play. These guys aren’t children. And why continue to single out McCoy anyway? What about the other captains? Why do they get a pass?It’s not the captains, it’s the other players. McCoy can’t make VH3 cover anyone. Jameis can’t make his OL block better. And because I’m sure you’ll say something about him being here the longest, this problem has been around before McCoy got here. It’s beyond ridiculous to blame ANY one player for the failures of a franchise. I know you know the truth, but you just love the attention you receive from stirring the pot. Obviously I feed that by responding to you, but it’s really kind of embarrassing. You repeat yourself over and over again. We’ve all heard it a million time. Come up with some new material.

  42. D-Rome Says:

    Lavonte David has been talking about this kind of stuff since the Schiano days. Yet, nothing has changed years later.

  43. tmaxcon Says:

    Hawaiian Buc

    no you are right they are men not pop warner and that makes it even more pathetic that grown men led by the ice cream man came out flat ONCE AGAIN….

    the gmc years will be remembered as the Blowouts and Ice Cream Decade. hopefully he has more success playing with his dolls…. i mean action figures.

  44. dm4bucs Says:

    Some of the comments are right on. Weak training camp/practices and over-hype has lead to this team playing soft and slow. No one represents that more than VH3 and Conte to me right now with how soft they are playing.

  45. Bucsfanman Says:

    @dm4- Not for nothing, but at least Conte is in the same zip code of the guy he’s defending!

  46. James Walker Says:

    tmaxcon Says:

    blah blah blah it’s all the same ole excuses and bs to justify a heartless effort and performance by a defense with ZERO LEADERSHIP

    So in order to have a heartfelt effort and to have leadership a team must always win?

  47. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Assuming you love Aaron Donald (fantastic player), what exactly has he won during his tenure? Is he a poor leader as well? What about JJ Watt? How about Suh? What exactly have those guys won? They are all just one player, and although they are all really good players, they haven’t had much team success either. A team is more than just one guy, and certainly more than a DT.

    And again I ask, why are you giving the other guys a pass? Why always single out McCoy with every post. You can’t answer that with any sort of a logical answer, which is why no one takes you serious.

  48. tmaxcon Says:

    mccoy is a 3rd overall pick who is / was the self proclaimed team leader and face of the franchise. he is a team captain and the highest paid player of course he is held to a higher standard. he is a good player nothing more not great and certainly not a leader. teams can not win with soft mentally weak players in leadership roles they don’t fit.

  49. tmaxcon Says:

    i single out mccoy simply because he is the face of the basement years and undisputed and self proclaimed leader of the losing culture. i am tired of hearing the excuses it’s been 4 coaching staffs and a revolving door of defenders yet the great gmc will always need help. maybe it’s the great gmc who is the problem. the answer is obvious…

  50. Dewey Selmon Says:

    TJ Ward came out and said they were on vacation. which is it?

  51. ATLBucsfan Says:

    The leaders on the field have to demand the same effort from everyone on the field or insist that they be removed from the field. That’s leadership. If you are not putting in the same effort as I am then get off the field! Things would change.

  52. D-Rome Says:

    Despite all the McCoy hate, no other DT has more sacks since 2013 than Gerald McCoy.

  53. ndog Says:

    Ridiculous, like this wasn’t obvious before they got their doors blown off. My question is how can people like Jamies, Ayers, Evans, Kwon and Sweezy not just rip apart anyone on this team that helps this laziness take place? I would be getting into fights everyday if my teammates were not taking this seriously as I am not letting them me get embarrassed.

  54. ndog Says:

    Apparently Dewey Selmon they were on vacation all week!

  55. Lamarcus Says:

    No. James walker. Perhaps stop the bleeding a bit. When in the 31 points spot our leaders wthe c on the chest get involved a say something. Good teams have great leadership from players.

  56. Broy34 Says:

    Tmax not a soul likes you. Not a soul likes your comments. You have never played a down of serious football and being a piece of absolute trash u hate a D tackle who is extremely talented and not a dick like yourself. U literally said that he was responsible for the entire defense giving up 31 points. Congratulations on the single dumbest post in jbf history. Don’t waste your time mentioning how he’s the Leader of the losing culture and the ice cream man and mr softie. You’re like the guys in the free world who try to.keep saying the same crap about Eminem in 8 mile when it’s been said 100 times but instead of going quiet you just continue to spew it because theres no crowd to boo. You have no kids no girl no life. Don’t waste your breath lying saying you do. It’s impassible to spend as much time as you do commenting on 75 percent of articles with a repeitive paragraph about one damn player on an 11 man unit. Nobody watches games with you because you would drive them insane as you do so many readers here. For months I’ve skipped over every single comment you type but I needed to rant. It’s out of control and it pains me the Joes are too busy coming up with repeitive monikers just like you to censor you. Congratulations on becoming the single most pathetic “fan of any team” and the hands down unquestionable biggest loser any of us have had the pleasure of laughing at. Youll be dead by 60 with a stroke

  57. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    That’s the most ridiculous reason I’ve ever read. Read it again and I would hope you would see how ridiculous it is. Do you truly believe that had we cut GMC that we would be a winning team? Of course you don’t. You’re just writing the same nonsense to keep getting attention you are clearly not getting outside of JBF.

    GMC is a bright spot in a miserable 10 year plus time period. Getting rid of him will do nothing but bring us down more. There are so many stats and awards that have proven how good he really is, but all you can really do is blame him for the failures of a franchise. You never mention how he’s never had another Pro Bowl defensive lineman. You never mention how our offense isn’t performing. Is that his fault too?

    Again, all you want is attention. You don’t believe what you write. I know it, you know it, we all know it. So just keep doing what you’re doing, and I really hope that it fills an obvious gap in your life.

  58. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I understand your reasoning, but you just don’t understand the way it works. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a really good friend that played pro basketball for over 10 years. He’s told me on so many occasions it’s nothing like high school or college. It’s a job. All that rah rah crap doesn’t really work at this point. The guys either want it or they don’t . They are either in it for the check, or in it to win games. There’s nothing another player or coach can do to change that. You can fight them all you want. Nothing will change. In fact, it will probably just get worse.

  59. tmaxcon Says:


    hope you feel better snowflake… I am fit and healthy but surely appreciate you concerns about my health…. try living in the real world for a day

  60. Wausa Says:

    the Lovie Smith connection is starting weigh heavily on my mind.

  61. tmaxcon Says:


    i want my team to win. i could careless about attention although I will not deny it’s highly entertaining reading all the excuses and bs to justify losing and horrible play…. great players make others around them better gmc does not do that therefore he will never be great and is the SINGLE BIGGEST OBSTACLE TO THE BUCS WINNING CONSISTENTLY. The team needs players who are dedicated to winning not playing with dolls and finding camera time.

  62. Conte Piscateli Says:

    This may be the area we are missing Kwon the most. He seems to be the only one that brings any intensity to the defense. I don’t want to hear about how we had a bad week of practice again, someone in that building needs to call people out and demand the intensity from this team all day every day. I don’t care if it’s a coach, captain, anyone. If you feel the guy across from you isn’t putting in the work, call them out, knock them on their butt if need be, but wake them up and demand more of each other. Are we supposed that a team that can’t get up for a game, had issues with practice?

  63. Wewantgruden Says:

    Supports my claims of terrible, terrible coaching. They are way over their head. Here is a good way to look at it: they have won two games, it has been against the New York Giants and Chicago Bears… They have a combined when total of two games. The Bucs sadly suck and always will as long as DK is running the show

  64. Defense Rules Says:

    Lakeland, I’ve only been a Bucs fan for 35 years, but I feel your frustration. Through just about all those years, there was one thing I could depend on: the Bucs’ defense was gonna show up. We’ve been primarily a defensive team since Day One. These last few years however we’ve emphasized offense in the drafts & free agency, & short-changed the defense. You can get away with a mediocre pass rush if you’ve got a great secondary IMO. And vice-versa. But if your pass rush is mediocre, and your secondary is mediocre, you’ve had the schnitzel. Your offense in that case better be putting up a LOT of points AND controlling the clock, ’cause your defense will be giving up a LOT of points itself and won’t be able to get off the field or own the clock. No amount of DC ‘scheming’ can hide glaring weaknesses like we’re seeing. Our defense, however, can and must play better than what we all saw Sunday. THAT performance was inexcusable.

  65. Drew Says:

    What a wonderful feeling it would be to just knowing we had an NFL caliber football team. It’s disappointing knowing all we have is the replacements competing at the NFL level.

    Sorry Season… Sorry Team… Go YUCCANEERS, play hard for the #1 draft pick and the selection of a PISS RUSHER!!! Also a new coaching staff and GM!!!

  66. Tbbucs3 Says:

    watching the all 22 film, our LBs bite way too hard on pa leaving them way out of position. Makes it even worse because we couldn’t stop the run either.

  67. martinii Says:

    When you go to work it is time to get serious, you play when the job is done and you have won. I realize these kids play a game for a living but many fans invest their hard earned money into this team and expect nothing short of perfection (A bang for our buck.) I read somewhere that the Patriots are all business on the road before a game. In the military total focus and discipline prevail before an engagement. “To be forlorn is to be forewarned,” play ping pong on your day off. Play the game in your head, over and over, account for every contingency, video games and music before a game leave your head full of crap. I believe that good mental preparation is an important component to winning and if our Buc’s are vacationing on the road they are letting their fans down.

    Tony Dungy set the high standard. In three years. From national joke to SB contender. Didn’t get over the hump but would have.

    Would the Steelers have fired a coach like that? They stay the course, hire for the long haul, and are perennial contenders for it.

    Woulda, coulda, shoulda won more SB’s? Most Fans I know were eternally grateful to have a Real bad ass football team,a defense that frightened opponents, and a head coach with Morals. A GM with family ties to the Bucs, looking to vindicate. And a great stadium , awesome uniforms. Most of all a rabid fan base that wanted it so badly. We Believed. It was the best five years any Bucs fan has ever had

    And we would have won more SB’s too, between then and now.

    That standard hasn’t been seen here in along time.

  69. Bucamania Says:

    Dirk had me fooled. I thought this guy knew how to run a team and practices, attention to detail, accountability. I guess not. Well, that’s what you get then, Dirk. Embarrassed.

  70. unbelievable Says:


    No. LOL. “Unbelievable” is just the most accurate word to describe it.

    In fact, it’s actually the reason I made this screen name several years back. I had read JBF for years, but never commented until the last year of Raheem or first year of Schiano (can’t remember). I don’t remember the article or the comments, but what I was reading was so ridiculous and unbelievable, the screen name seemed very appropriate.

    I’ve just stuck with it since. And based on the way this team performs more often than not, it usually describes the subject at hand pretty well!

  71. pelbuc Says:

    Tmax is right. Same old lame excuses each and every year, regardless of coaches. This organization is run by idiots who move up to pick kickers in the 2d round. GMC and LVD are good players with absolutely no interest and ability to get other players to play with intensity and pride. DC should dumb down the defense like he did last year and get Hargreaves off the field. Have a fire sale if the trade deadline hasn’t passed since Ayers, Baker, Hargraves, and Gholston shouldnt be here next year. Of course they signed Gholston so he can underachieve. Even all the years Bucs sucked, you could somewhat rely on the defense. Now that’s gone! Hope the Glazers are listening!

  72. BucfaninMi Says:

    Day off?? They didn’t play like they should to earn a day off.

  73. Capt.Tim Says:

    Gerald McCoy is the only player on this team- that every opposing Coach has to plan for.
    And everyone of them has said so.

    McCoy has 35.5 sacks, since 2013.
    More than any other DT in the league.
    Despite the fact that he plays on a talentless defensive line.

    You would have to be a complete simpleton, not to realize that McCoy is by far the best defensive player on this team.
    A simpleton, a town fool, a idiot

  74. Locked In Says:

    I bet Swaggy would disagree… lol

  75. Drew Says:

    I still have torches, sickles, pitch forks and sticks left over from the PUKANEER days in the event we need to run some of these so called NFL Players, Coaches and GM out of town.

    Also note… I believe Licht had his pool drained in the off season and has a couple of bruises from jumping in the empty pool after the 2 WINS.

  76. Roy T. Buford Says:

    This is throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks. Not buying. Professionals should NEVER be talking about garbage like this. First, it should NEVER happen. Telling me that of 60 players and a coaching staff we can’t find ONE guy who, about 30 seconds into it, says “WTF! KNOCK THIS OFF!”

  77. Jim Says:

    Yeah, and after we spent all year building the defense in the draft and free agency, all that “#weapons4McCoy stuff and, uh…

  78. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “GMC and LVD are good players with absolutely no interest and ability to get other players to play with intensity and pride. ”


    Completely stupid, ignorant comment. How do you know what their interest is? And as I asked before and no one answers, do you put JJ Watt, Aaron Donald, and Suh in that same class? They haven’t won anything either. This whole leadership thing is so overrated anyway. Good players and good coaching win football games. All this rah rah BS that you believe in doesn’t work in professional sports. It’s cute that you are a big believer in that, but it’s really silly. Does your boss give you a big speech before every day of work to help motivate you to get your work done? it’s a freaking job people!!!! The NFL is a business, it’s their job, and it’s nothing like what you obviously think it is. Wake up!!!

  79. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Capt. Tim,

    We apparently know nothing. If only McCoy wasn’t on the team leading the league in sacks, we’d probably have several Super Bowls by now. That’s what this clown maxi pad actually believes lol. I’ve known my fair share of stupid people in my time, but this guy is the leader of the pack. I would pay money to watch him talk to anyone in football about his beliefs on McCoy. I just want to see their reaction. It would be priceless.

  80. Broy34 Says:

    Hawaiian if you keep commenting I’ll be here. I’ve been here since I think 2008. Don’t comment all the time. Read alot. And the garbage I have seen after Sundays game is the worst I’ve ever seen. The worst is the people whoNEVER have commented just completely flock into this site and blow it up. Idk if it was SB or Anthem, maybe neither but some fool was the first comment on every article for two days with nothing but negativity saying “are we gonna talk about Fitz throwing 290 and 2 TDS and no pics”…Winston has thrown for 300 no picks three times. It’s not important. Jameis’ didn’t do it against prevent either. The people who thinks we’re better without McCoy and jameis are truly entertainment and just trolls who are invisible when we win. Lakeland wouldn’t shut up after they BEAT the giants. I can’t wait for them to compete in Buffalo and probably win then we’ll see realist Hawaiian 87 and Dallas and myself positively commenting as we have done for the last decade. Those mentioned know that eachother are the real fans and realistic fans and know this site has been diluted by dumb monikers like pass rush (what pass rush) writers who don’t realize the cushion on every play and the fans who non stop type negativity out of nowhere. So the guys I mentioned plus pickgrin and blake—-we will keep up the positivity. As I said before the game on Sunday. Giving up at 2-2 or 2-3 is laughable

    We are better off without gmc for sure. This is not about stats that tickle you. It’s about leadership and direction OUR team is going. We cannot and will not win w these career under .500 losers.

    Its been said and proven : you can’t win w career loser. U have to cut ties no matter how good they are cuz u can’t undo losing so much.

    The biggest elephant in the room is that gmc gets love for drawing double teams. F that. It doesn’t work. It hasn’t worked. Gmc is not a player that elevate ppl. U need elite talent around him and that cost money. I give Licht credit for realizing this and passing on DEs knowing he coulnt just get great talent. He needs elite talent around gmc.

    I am as frustrated as everyone else on here… But I want to make myself perfectly clear before I get into my overall point. Koetter is not completely blameless. But for how many coaching staffs does this group of players need to go through before they take a real long hard look in the mirror.

    If Koetter goes so should this core group of players. I would call for a complete and total restart. These guys might have some great stats but where they fall short is winning. As of this moment they are not winners and haven’t been for one reason or another. We can only make excuses for so long.

    Ummm so pretending this isn’t due to coaching, and could be resolved with better leadership (TMAXCON), is anyone worried that Baker’s attitude in practice may have something to do with it…. or is this bc of how ‘delicate’ we practiced in the pre-season?

    Sounds like first thing on the chopping block is going to be the toys in the locker room that resemble Richy Rich’s family room.
