    Oh boy. Here we go

  2. Pierce Says:

    I can’t wait to be frustrated for three hours!!! Woo-hoo!!! Go Bucs!!!!

  3. holymoly13 Says:

    Which Buc team is showing up today !

  4. BucdUp Says:

    Let’s go!! We made the switch! The switch 2 Fitz!!! Now it’s time to beat up on McClown and jackwagon!! Let’s go Bucs!!

  5. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Reporters on channel 10 just said that they talked to most of the players, and they all have confidence in Koetter. That sort of flies in the face of what many here are saying.

    He hasn’t lost the team at all.

  6. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    That’s too bad Bonzai. Because he’s leading the team to nowhere. Doesn’t even have the common sense to dismiss Mike Smith

  7. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I’m hoping for a win today. Fitz has some familiarity with the Jets. Maybe enough to make them predictable to some extent.

    I’m not worried about Mike Evans being out…truth is we have great depth at WR. Godwin will get a chance to shine at last.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think we’re better with Evans…but thankfully we have the depth we need.

    Now, I hope when Winston returns he doesn’t zero in on DJax so much. I think the pressure to connect with him made him predictable. HE was trying to get the timing down and so was staring done DJax too much. When he comes back, he needs to stop worrying about DJax and go with the proven WR. Mike Evans.

    Because when he started trying to connect with Jackson, the losing started.

    Also…I hope to see some no huddle today. That was Koetter’s specialty in Atlanta, and it worked. IT wasn’t until he got away from it that things went bad. It’s also why the hurry-up works so well with Jameis.

  8. Fire the glazers Says:

    Joe… we’re losing guys on here… comments are down… wins are down… stories are dull and annoying to read about… we need a win about as bad as Florida needs cooler weather.

  9. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Broy34WantsGruden Says
    “That’s too bad Bonzai. Because he’s leading the team to nowhere. Doesn’t even have the common sense to dismiss Mike Smith”

    First off, you are wrong about where he is leading the team. And secondly, its Jason Licht’s job to fire Smith. And that won’t happen any time soon.

    The truth of the matter is you are wrong about both Smith and Koetter.

  10. Bird Says:

    Huge fan of koetter but he is dead man walking. SO is gruden s youngest son a senior in high school?

    Have a lot to do when he may come back?

  11. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Fire the glazers Says
    “…we’re losing guys on here… comments are down… wins are down… stories are dull and annoying to read about…”

    I have not been coming as much, to speak for myself. Too many negative articles. And I scoff at the whole Stick Carrier movement, because they turned on the team as quick as anyone else.

    Tampa has some good, dedicated fans…but they are few and far between. Most are extreme bandwagon or fair weather fans.

  12. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  13. B Coburn Says:

    I defînitely feel like some players have checked out. Did you expect them to tell the reporters that he has no idea what he’s doing and we are just here to collect a cheque?

  14. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    My Predictions for today:

    Bucs win in a close game.
    Defense gets 4 or more sacks.
    Fitz throws 2 picks.
    ASJ scores once.
    McCown throws two picks…maybe three.

  15. Dooshlarue Says:

    Nice pic Joe!

  16. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    I’m wrong about Smith and koetter. While I tend to agree with you Bonzai you defend every regime we have and accept losing. It is not a matter of fact or fiction it is opinion and how I feel about koetter and Mike Smith is well in the majority

  17. Howard Cosell Says:

    It’s starting to look like McCown was another victim of the dysfunctional Buccaneers or the Florida chem-trails. Look for him to set the record straight today as he shreds the Bucs at the DoD.

  18. BucsSuck Says:

    Seeing as McCown grew up only a couple hours from me I’ve always pulled for East Texas guys to be successful. I just hope we can be competitive today

  19. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I didn’t defend Lovie. I just felt that Licht should have been as accountable as Lovie was held. Licht got zero blame is all that.

    I defended Schiano because things went wrong that were out of his control (like MRSA).

    I was completely against Raheem.

    And with Gruden, I had said he should be fired unless he finally had back to back winning seasons…which he did at the end and still got fired.

    You act as though it is wrong to support the staff. Newsflash…they are a part of the team as well. Rooting for a team means rooting for the whole team, not just certain parts.

    We should be hoping that each part of the team does well…instead of rooting against them.

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Howard Cosell

    McCown has had other seasons since leaving here, and all but this year sucked for him.

  21. Fire the glazers Says:

    I hope you’re right Bonzai. But a realist once said, without arguably the best WR on the field, combined with a horrible rush attack and 8 sacks in 8 games… it’s hard to say they can pull off a win, and quite frankly even harder to be optimistic at this point in the season.

  22. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Man I gotta give the Bucs credit for one thing. They’re so inconsistent that they’ve become totally unpredicatable.

    I think we all can easily imagine…another blow out loss…or a blow out win…who knows which team will show up…add in the Jets and this is an impossible game to really handicap.

  23. SB Says:

    If we win this game today with Fitz, I shudder to hear the “QB controversy” talk around the Nation

  24. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    So you were against the only coach who had a winning season between Lovie Raheem and Schiano combined. Interesting how that works Bonzai

  25. Dewey Selmon Says:

    It would be fitting for a McCown to ASJ td with 30 seconds to go to give the Jets a 1 point victory. Loss #400

  26. Howard Cosell Says:

    Jets are fired up to play the game. Buc are fired up to leave the stadium and go home (or go party). Look for a blowout of the BUcs with the stands full of green.

    J-E-T-S !!!

  27. Rob Says:

    If Koetter still “has” the locker room lol, the Bucs better win or their coach’s grave just gets deeper. I don’t think the players really care that much for Koetter or the rest of the coaching staff because if they did, we wouldn’t be 2 and freaking 6. I’m still pissed off how bad the Bucs are this year. I’m tired of the latest excuses too.
    It was our kicker’s fault.
    The human ATM, America’s turnover machine, Jameis Winston, gave it away again.
    No blocking
    No pass rush
    Stupid penalties
    Inability to stop the other team on third down
    No rushing game
    Predictable playcalling both sides of the ball
    Apathy (players just cashing their paychecks and aren’t trying enough)
    Special teams mistakes
    Dropped picks
    Flu bug hit team
    Someone said something nasty to Jameis and we had to pick a fight with them and got suspended and fined
    We were outcoached
    We were outsmarted
    We were outplayed
    We were outhustled
    You get the point… The Buc apologists love making excuses. Time to put up or STFU and win a blinking game! Go Bucs!

  28. dexterOHMAN Says:

    Is Kevin Greeene maybe a DC option? Done good things as a LB coach

  29. BucsSuck Says:

    We need to hire a 3-4 based defensive coach to utilize our LBs.

  30. cmurda Says:

    @Bonzai. I’m not against you. I’ve said for a couple weeks now that the best thing for the organization would be for Koetter to work out. Obviously it would be best for Mike Smith to work out too even if I’m not his biggest fan. The truth of the matter is that if we go say 7-9 or 8-8 then that shows Koetter has not lost the team and the staff will likely remain in place. I’m skeptical that we will be able to accomplish a winning record in the 2nd half of the season. All Koetter and company can do is take it one game at a time. The first game is a very winnable game against an average at best Jets squad. The Jets are a run first team and there will be plenty of Bilal Powell. Kwon will be the x factor. If he looks like Kwon of yesteryear then we have a good chance.

  31. MadMax Says:

    Go Bucs!!! I want this win. Just because of McClown and A$$Jackhole!!!

    Thanks God theres no JW3 retarded antics today!!!

  32. MadMax Says:


  33. JonBuc Says:


  34. Astrobuc Says:

    Ok. So do we win or does the not trying , commie, cop and usa hating players. Take knees and stay on ground again, seems like no coach could take these malcontents. Any where , maybe. They need safe space to play with crayons and puppys?

  35. BucEmUp Says:

    I will bet he doesn’t cry in Ny

  36. Eric Says:

    Overcome with excitement.

  37. Lamarcus Says:

    Jets gonna blow us out. The freaking tanking jets

  38. tmaxcon Says:

    how quickly will cancer93 quit today… you know 93 is pulling for his fellow good guy loser McClown over his own teammates.

  39. University of Seffner Says:

    Our Cheerleaders are wearing green…

  40. BucsSuck Says:

    Atleast we get to listen to Kevin Freaking Harlan today!!!

  41. denjoe Says:

    He better at least get a sack today.

  42. denjoe Says:


  43. onetrickpony Says:

    we’re gonna die

  44. DoNUTS Says:

    C’mon BUCS! Bring us some excitement already. PLAY HARD!

  45. BoJim Says:

    Let the flogging begin.

  46. ChanEpic Says:

    Good afternoon true believers…

  47. Lakeland Says:

    Josh McCown vs Ryan Fitzpatrick

    Is this the Arena League

    Or the Senior Bowl

    NFL has hit rock bottom

  48. 911bucs Says:

    Wow lots of empty seats

  49. Lakeland Says:

    Big Ben has threw a pick already…smh

  50. Brandon Says:

    Things have gotten so bad, they’re not even airing the game in my area.

  51. ChanEpic Says:

    911 – by halftime they’ll be full, mostly NY fans I’d bet.

  52. Dano74 Says:

    Game not even televised here in Orlando wtf

  53. Lakeland Says:

    People has figured it out

    Bucs are not worthy of paying to see

    They sucks

  54. ChanEpic Says:

    Lakeland- The pick on Big Ben was a super athletic play by the CB.

  55. Lakeland Says:

    Tennessee has fired Butch Jones

  56. Tony Pepperoni Says:

    Just think if the game ended now it wouldn’t be a “L”.

  57. ChanEpic Says:

    The bucs should throw any stretch or pitch plays out of the playbook. IT NEVER WORKS.

  58. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    donovan smith is plain garbage

  59. cmurda Says:

    Koetter never finished the preseason mentally. These are preseason playcalls. Have some gonads for once Dirk and go for it.

  60. Day1BucFan Says:

    run run pass punt omg

  61. ChanEpic Says:

    It isn’t just Koetter’s inability to innovate the Xs and Os, it’s the he has 0 ability to inspire anyone. Instead of winning Coach Koetter, I’m going to call him “Ho-Hum” coach Koetter.

  62. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Beckwith and his passion…love the kid!

  63. THETRUTH Says:

    Why trying to run to outside with martin. We tried that all last week and were minus 30 yards

  64. Lakeland Says:

    That was a beautiful 60 yard bomb from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs, beating Josh Norman.

  65. denjoe Says:

    Hey, were still in the game!

  66. Kobe Faker Says:

    Klueless Koetter the Klown is….


    Get this guy out of here

  67. cmurda Says:

    How far has Rudy fallen. Wow. Drops it when it hits him in bread basket.

  68. Eric Says:

    Nice to see a quarterback with accuracy….been a long time.

  69. cmurda Says:

    Desean seems lost half the time when he goes deep. Turns the wrong way, doesn’t find the ball. Perfect throw Fitz

  70. DoNUTS Says:

    Two positive runs for #22 to the left.

  71. ChanEpic Says:

    Fitz has something going here. Jameis can/should learn few things from this drive.

  72. Mike in LOL Says:

    Godwin looking good so far

  73. DoNUTS Says:

    Can the Bucs get a first Q TD with Fitz leading the charge???

  74. Mike in LOL Says:

    Cmurda you’re right, that pass to DJax deep was on the money, DJax just expects to make no adjustments to the pass it seems and just wants it within a 6cm radius of his palms.

  75. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Nice to see 3rd down conversions!!


    I don’t miss Jameis..lol..

  76. Eric Says:

    I already see the team playing like they have a chance to win. Running game looks better already. Maybe it’s because they actually respect the passing game and don’t crowd the box.

  77. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    Can you really be so Naive?

    It matters very little what the players say verbally. Their play on the field speaks much louder.

    Never in my life seen so many blank stares into oblivion on the sideline from both players and coaches than I have this season.

    Koetter has absolutely lost this team. And as much as I like the guy, he’s gotta go. He is simply in over his head.

  78. cmurda Says:

    Fitz is doing his best to overcome the patheticness of our O Line.

  79. Mike in LOL Says:

    Where’s Peyton Barber?? Let’s get him in on this first half!!

  80. Quattrolou Says:


  81. Swanee Says:

    Line continues to cause penalties. Discipline these players Coach K. I mean really!!!! Sit them….

  82. Destinjohnny Says:

    Great drive
    Need drives

  83. DoNUTS Says:

    No. The penalty on Sweezy is unforgivable. Fitz showing some live game rust.

  84. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    Put him on the bench.

  85. passthebuc Says:

    Lets see, lets do something different. Run Martin
    run martin
    3rd and 10 lets pass
    next lets punt
    Much better the 2nd time with the ball.
    you can keep molasses aka JW on the bench

  86. JaboosLickedFingers Says:

    Wow! A lot of fans went to the game dressed as empty seats.

  87. ChanEpic Says:

    Just watch how much better the Defense will look after watching the Offense march down the field just now. Momentum begets momentum. The shoulder injury and M13’s suspension may be exactly what this team needed. Taking focus off of the divas of the team is a good look. And I’m a HUGE Jameis fan.

  88. Lamarcus Says:

    What happened to jw being the problem? It sure looks the same

  89. Dano74 Says:

    Every time they’re in red zone , the OLine gets some sort of penalty Amazing

  90. Swanee Says:

    Line cost us 7 points. Another field goal , will not win games. Good job Fitz, sorry for the pathetic undisciplined offensive line.

  91. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Lamarcus..we are actually seeing passes being thrown and passes being caught..

  92. Defense Rules Says:

    Fitz moved the team beautifully down the field. Penalty on Sweezy & questionable play-calling by Koetter in the Red zone (Run-Run-Pass-Kick) doomed them to a FG. At least he’s using DJax better today.

  93. denjoe Says:

    Were given them 5yds a carry, not good.

  94. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I’m the biggest JW3 supporter, but seeing the accuracy of fitz leaves me wanting for JW to throw like that. That being said, I don’t think it is something that can’t be fixed. It is legitimately all about the throwing motion. JW was accurate at FSU, and when he got here they wanted to change his throwing motion to shorten it. I think this has completely thrown his accuracy off. Koetter not adjusting his Gameplan for that isn’t helping either. I think this next regime change will be a good thing for JW as long as we hire someone willing to adjust on the fly.

  95. Pa Privateer Says:

    I think we look better without Jamies forcing passes to Evans. It is good to see other WRs getting receiving yards. Let’s hope this is what the rest of the game looks like.

  96. Lamarcus Says:

    Really ? Fitz is no better than jw. Hey Jets have no pass rush either

  97. theodore Says:

    First quarter offensive explosion!

  98. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Ryan Smith is looking better

  99. Lamarcus Says:

    Gmc gets creamed on 1 on 1 matchup

  100. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The funny thing is, we are going to win just enough games to miss out on the top pass rushers AGAIN. Bradley Chubb would be wonderful next to GMC

  101. ChanEpic Says:

    Great Jacksonville TD just now.

  102. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    It’s like the Bucs are playing themselves out there.

  103. ChanEpic Says:

    TV commentator calling out “Ho-Hum” coach koetter’s madden play calling.

  104. BuccoDav Says:

    Dance, dance, dance…

  105. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bradley Chubb looks like K. Mack.
    It either him or OT Conner Williams from Texas
    They just called Koetter out for being predictable. Lol

  106. Swanee Says:

    Lamarcus,,, really. Give Fitz an entire game and he will win it for you as I said for the last 4 games. He is just better than JW….Better Athlete… Despite the constant offensive line penalties , he will find ways to win. He is a winner, he is going to win today.

  107. cmurda Says:

    Now you are seeing why JW is way better than Fitz. Fitz is causing these sacks with his happy feet. Stay in the pocket and throw the ball.

  108. DoNUTS Says:

    #76 Smith….play until the whistle every play and that wont happen. He had control and then gave it up when Fitz needed him most.

  109. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    OL is just horrible, think marpet at center is a huge reason the OL cant be average

  110. Lamarcus Says:

    Dsmith is trash. Why is he on tampa?

  111. LOLBuc Says:

    Play calling is unimaginative and predictable.

  112. Eric Says:

    Yeah the Jets have no pass rush. You are clueless La dumb a$$.

  113. ChanEpic Says:

    @Swanee – I don’t know if he is “better” than JW, he’s definitely more experienced and less of a diva.

  114. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol there is absolutely no qb controversy here at all. Stupidest thing I’ve ever heard.

  115. BucsSuck Says:

    A holding on offensive is a sack to the defense in my eyes. McCoy has been a monster today

  116. Bird Says:


    Are you kidding me?

    Jameis innermost circle. Bucs are moving ball A little more exciting than in past. Go to a game and open eyes would help.

  117. ChanEpic Says:

    LETS GO!!!!!!

  118. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God we missed him

  119. cmurda Says:

    Grimes is amazing. Great coverage and he read that ball the whole way

  120. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol there is ur q.v. controversy LOL

  121. cmurda Says:

    Tell me more about how Fitz is way better than JW. That was a horrible throw. He leads him and that’s 6 pts.

  122. ChanEpic Says:

    Fitz throws his obligatory pick. #newbosssameastheoldboss

  123. Bird Says:

    Yah. That was a jinx on command

  124. Matts17 Says:

    This game is setting football back a decade. Both teams are absolutely awful.

  125. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    LMAO 😂

  126. theodore Says:

    McCown! Fitzgerald! The NFL on CBS!

  127. Rojas Says:

    LMAO “ We have an accurate QB now “ Funniest thing I’ve heard.

  128. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    I’m watching the FSU game all over again from yesterday

  129. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    True buccaneers fashion. Embarrassing

  130. ChanEpic Says:

    Time for our D to STEP UP McKown wil turn the ball over again. I PROMISE YOU.

  131. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Aaaaaand the losers who want Fitz can stop now. Pass was abysmal

  132. DoNUTS Says:

    Fitz doing his best Jameis imitation by throwing behind the player for INT.

  133. Swanee Says:

    Goat,,, okay maybe your right. Maybe I am wrong. Terrible throw by Fitz. Better see an improvement next drive. However JW is not the answer, we better draft a QB who is a winner…

  134. Defense Rules Says:

    Great defensive series. Bucs doing much better today stopping the run.

  135. ChanEpic Says:

    Swanee, draft a QB?!?! Please hush.

  136. Lamarcus Says:

    Damn it’s like the offense this has been getting field possession this week. Can we get a td 🙁 or nah?

  137. Tony Pepperoni Says:

    Both Qbs on the team suck!! Period

  138. Bighck61 Says:

    No it was not face mask it was a horse collar tackle

  139. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I can’t stop watching the YouTube video of Bradley Chubb stealing the Clemson QBs towel 4 times. Lol that is the kinda dawg we need on our team. Sapp would love the guy

  140. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Dirk koetter is a weak coach, we need stronger leadership to stop making stupid mistakes

  141. Drew Says:

    ASJ met Kwon the giant killer.

  142. Lamarcus Says:

    Ha the jw basbashes looking dumb af. Are yall mad or nah????

  143. DoNUTS Says:

    I do see better energy on the OFF/DEF lines at least. Id like to see Barber get a few rips but not on first down, which seems to be our running down

  144. Zhills Says:

    But Pepperoni Winston is a playing today

  145. EA Says:

    Oline is weak

  146. Swanee Says:

    Chanepic, Both quarterbacks are awful. So you would go into next season with what we have? Really. It won’t change next season until we have A NFL QB who doesn’t continue to make mistakes.

  147. ChanEpic Says:

    calm down there Fitz! Holy crap he’s going to kill himself

  148. cmurda Says:

    Gotta love the flags being picked up against the Jets. No personal foul with #33 Jets roughing up Fitz after tackle.

  149. Zhills Says:

    I thank Evans makes Winston look like he can complete a pass. About time to give the receiver credit

  150. orlbucfan Says:

    Koetter is killing this offense again.

  151. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Whew….damn good thing we have our 5 best OL out there playing.

  152. Defense Rules Says:

    Our OLine doesn’t look like it’s pass-blocking today any better than it run-blocks.

  153. Lamarcus Says:

    I’m the biggest hater of this defense but they are good today pitching a shut out but offense for the 4th week in a row can’t get it together? This is on Koetter big time. Not his quarterbacks?

  154. Wesley Says:

    Holy crap this game is boring a.f.

  155. orlbucfan Says:

    Is Koetter brain dead? Why are we still dealing with runs up the middle on first and second down? We are lucky it’s still 3-0.

  156. ChanEpic Says:

    @Swanee – reasonable people can disagree but it’s pure Sunday morning couch-dweller GM comedy to talk taking a QB in this draft when you have a 23 year old on the roster now. This Oline needs addressing, DE, CB, all are more glaringly deficient than the QB spot. You’re talking crazy and you sound like a irrational JW hater.

  157. Defense Rules Says:

    Lavonte’s all over the place today. Great tackle for loss.

  158. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lvd looking like a boss

  159. cmurda Says:

    No pass rush, no blitz. 8 games and counting

  160. THETRUTH Says:

    When we gonna play our top pick Howard !! No innovation on offense

  161. Defense Rules Says:

    Wow! Swaggy came alive. Great tackle for no gain.

  162. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    this is a doodoo game WOW…. as a koetter supporter, this offense is bad, licht didnt build the trenches very well but go bucs

  163. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I want to see beckwith as an edge rusher every once in a while. Can’t hurt

  164. ChanEpic Says:

    So the cover no-one defense is back

  165. Wesley Says:

    Feels like an exhibition game played somewhere in Europe.

  166. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Don’t blame Licht for Koetters lack of creativity.

  167. Swanee Says:

    ChanEpic, I agree we have to many other positions to fill. I did not mean in draft. Free agency. I like JW as a person but he is to inconsistent as he has proven in these past 4 games. To many turnovers and interceptions and red zone ineffective. Can’t go into next season under these circumstances.

  168. Defense Rules Says:

    Will Clarke? Nice sack.

  169. BucsSuck Says:

    Will Clark just stole home!!

  170. DoNUTS Says:

    Bucs get a sack and take a TO! Then the D gives up the booty on 3rd and 14…= terrible.

  171. Defense Rules Says:

    No pass rush + no coverage = 1st down. The saga continues.

  172. denjoe Says:


  173. WeAreLost Says:

    Man I love the secondary.

  174. cmurda Says:

    This is on Mike Smith. These 3rd and longs and he is too much of a wuss to call a blitz. Why? He’s a horrible D Coor. All the stupid talk of getting a QB when JW is just fine. Mike Smith is a terrible coach and needs to be canned pronto. The only reason we aren’t losing yet is because the Jets receivers suck.

  175. TeddyTB Says:

    First game I’m not watching this season. Mainly because I’d rather lose for draft position and because no matter what Fitz does today I’ve seen enough from him his whole career to no have confidence in him. I swear the Bucs comment sections on sites are full of people who never watch other teams. Our Oline sucks and many of us have been saying this well before the season ended last year. The Dline is untalented yet we didn’t even try to bring someone in. The offensive play calling is more than vanilla and predictable and Dirk never tailors the game plan to his players strengths. Yet we act shocked at how the team performs. I’ve been unimpressed with Licht, he needs to be fired before the end of the season so they can get the best GM available before the season ends and there is more competition. This also would give the new GM enough time to recruit the new HC

    Ha the jw basbashes looking dumb af. Are yall mad or nah????

    If America’s Present Laughingstock, Instigating, Injured, Captain of Immaturity, Losing, Only Seen in Local Markets, Backed into Pro Bowler Because Three Others Backed Out and Never Returned, Benched for Ineptness, Having His Best Season as A Pro, Drive Killer, Mr. Magoo aka Jameis Winston were in the game it would be 30 to 0 already.

  177. EA Says:

    Waste of a timeout

  178. BucsSuck Says:

    LMAO we just blitzed 7 and still didn’t get pressure

  179. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    The NY Receiver Anderson has killed us, on this drive. We are playing 15 yards off of him, like he is Odell Beckham.
    Then, on national TV, it keeps showing more Jets fans then us, in our own stadium 🙁

  180. cmurda Says:

    Conte. Come on

  181. BucsSuck Says:

    Conte Being our best Safety all season says all you need to know about our secondary safeties

  182. Defense Rules Says:

    Kendell Beckwith, finally turned him loose off the edge. Great sack.

  183. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Look at that. Beckwith off the edge just like I asked. Lol

  184. Matts17 Says:

    How either of these teams won a game this year is a miracle.

  185. BucsSuck Says:

    Watch the Jets get a TD after declining the penalty now.

  186. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I’m sure this is exactly what the NFL had in mind when they changed the rules to open up the game. What a 3-3 tie and neither team is able to score a single TD?

    Scintillating football!!! The excitement is simply overwhelming.

  187. Defense Rules Says:

    Great job when it counted D! Lavonte’s on fire.

  188. ElioT Says:

    This game Sucs!

  189. Defense Rules Says:

    StPete, 3-3 sure beats being down 30-0. Been there, done that. Ain’t pretty.

  190. AlteredEgo Says:

    This game is a real yawn burner !

  191. cmurda Says:

    No TD’s in 5 straight games in the 1st half.

  192. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Whewwww! 1/2 of that crap show is in the books.

  193. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Only took Smith 8 whole games to try and use Beckwith as a pass rusher.

    I’ve been saying that we would use him this way since the friggin draft.


  194. denjoe Says:

    There are some mental midgets on the OL!

  195. ElioT Says:

    Bucs’ fever!


  196. JaboosLickedFingers Says:

    What’s really sad is some people actually paid $$$ to watch this.

  197. denjoe Says:


  198. orlbucfan Says:

    Mike Smith is an idiot. LVD is running his own plays. 3-3 at the half. Koetter is not calling the offense right now. Hope the offense starts calling some plays on its own in spite of Koetter. C’MON TAMPA BAY!!

  199. AlteredEgo Says:

    Has Batman wannabe made a play yet ?

  200. Eric Says:

    Ok………..were in it. The big crowd noise should put us over the top.

  201. AlteredEgo Says:

    How much cap space would be freed up releasing Martin and McCoy…

  202. Big Stinky Says:

    Another game with only 3 points at halftime

  203. Newbucsfan2 Says:

    You know I’m starting to hope JW finishes up his current contract and moves on. You fans are insane, he’s the only one to bring any excitement and juice to this team. Then you’ll have nothing again but your same tired, horrible Bucs. Like I said you haters will have what you deserve… NOTHING!!

  204. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Not losing at the half! Not winning, but not losing. Oh yeah!

  205. TeddyTB Says:

    Are organization is ran by idiots let’s face it. They were fooled into believing Dirk was responsible for the offense being better Lovie’s last year. When in actuality the offense improved because we had a #1 pick replacing the garbage that was Glennon and Mcclown. The offense is still not producing in the first half today either with Fitz as the qb, so whats the only constant Dirk’s silly ass and his staff. Lmao it’s ridiculous that some of you are done with Jameis when half the coaches in the NFL would give up there left nut for him.

  206. Big Stinky Says:

    Offense had the ball at 50 or better 3 times and NOTHING

  207. ElioT Says:

    It’s becoming a task to watch this team.


  208. Lamarcus Says:

    Koetter got some splaining to do to the jw bashers. I love Jw but I hope he moves on from the Buccaneers

  209. Season Is Over Says:

    Gerald McCoy with 2 sacks and 1 pass defense on the year. That is about 6 million per sack. Winning!

  210. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Yeah we at least have a shot of winning this one but geesh…this stuff is getting hard to watch…kind of like UF football…or FSU football

  211. Sierra048 Says:

    Me too

  212. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I blame the Stick Carriers

  213. passthebuc Says:

    I do not think I can stand so much offense. Its actually offensive.

  214. Grumors Says:

    WBIR-TV in Knoxville reporting Your football coach Chucky has just agreed to become the next head coach of your Tennessee Volunteers…. maybe the Tuna will reconsider taking the job if Koetter is out

  215. denjoe Says:

    Where tf is peyton barber? Koetter is a stubborn SOB.

  216. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I agree, WTF is Peyton Barber ?

  217. passthebuc Says:

    Looks like the posters are on Mollases man (JW), even though he is not playing…..
    I concur

  218. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I love Godwin

  219. THETRUTH Says:

    Teddy TB:

    This Is typical Buc fan , they always look to get rid of players and than cry that we have no good players.

    Anyone says get rid of Winston has no clue, never give players room to develop

  220. passthebuc Says:

    Lets see
    2nd half
    1st down………… run
    2nd down …………………run
    3rd down ……………………………pass
    4th down ……………………………………….punt.
    Same old Sh…t

  221. Season Is Over Says:

    The irony of ASJ catching the winning TD from McCown to end this game is really going to be depressing for Buc fans. Especially when OJ Howard finishes with no catches on the day.

  222. TeddyTB Says:

    Bucs fans I understand how y’all are feeling I’m in this boat with you but don’t be so depressed. Lets embrace the tank, shutdown Jameis and give our new GM some high picks to work with. Trust me I’m a Lakers fan tanking has gave that team new hope. Best part about the NFL is you don’t have to tank multiple years to bounce back.

  223. BucsSuck Says:

    That wasn’t a hold

  224. Defense Rules Says:

    That didn’t look like holding on Donovan Smith. He just threw him down.

  225. cmurda Says:

    There is an NFL officiating agenda against the Bucs. No conspiracy theory. Just what it is. There is no other explanations for calls like the hold against Smith. Not even close to a hold.

  226. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Looks like ol 76 thinks he is david logan..swap him over to DT

  227. J dubb Says:

    I’m sorry I know Donovan Smith makes mental mistakes but I get seen a lot of penalties called on him that are phantom at best and it’s always on big plays

  228. WeAreLost Says:

    Tanking is for fuking losers.

  229. BUC MAN Says:


  230. passthebuc Says:

    @ the truth
    he was the same in college as he is now.
    Molasses Man
    If you could correct that, and pass accuracy, and the ability to lead a receiver. and pass where they’re going not where they have been
    and read a defense
    he can stay

  231. jj Says:

    Hilarious Dusthty

  232. Defense Rules Says:

    Yes! We have a kicker.

  233. cmurda Says:

    D Jax wide open. Fitz nowhere close to him. There is definitely no Qb controversy in Tampa. I laugh my butt off at the notion. Nice to see Murray being our guy.

  234. Big Stinky Says:

    Bad playcalling running on 2nd and 15

  235. denjoe Says:

    Murray, u da man!

  236. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Seriously though how is that a hold I’m extremely confused. It looked more like Donovan Smith performing a flawless pancake/body slam.

  237. orlbucfan Says:

    Koetter is killing us. Murray just made us 6-3. THere’s always hope.

  238. Smokey Says:

    Tv announcer just called America’s Gm “ Jason Licked “

  239. MadMax Says:

    So nice to have a FG kicker who can make em!

  240. Chris Says:

    Referees have ruined the NFL, not sure if I can watch the NFL, week after week, penalties are ruining the flow of games.

  241. jj Says:

    OJ Howard, Paging OJ Howard… Please report the Buccaneers sideline.

  242. Season Is Over Says:

    TeddyTB Says:
    November 12th, 2017 at 2:41 pm
    Best part about the NFL is you don’t have to tank multiple years to bounce back.

    Not sure about that. This team is in a decade long rebuild. Now we have Can’t Hit a Receiver In Stride, America’s Present Laughingstock, Instigating, Injured, Captain of Immaturity, Losing, Only Seen in Local Markets, Backed into Pro Bowler Because Three Others Backed Out and Never Returned, Benched for Ineptness, Having His Best Season as A Pro, Drive Killer, Mr. Magoo aka Jameis Winston to cheer for.

  243. denjoe Says:

    Fitz throws one INT and they’ll want to hang him don’t worry!

  244. Broy34WantsGruden Says:


  245. Big Stinky Says:

    That invisible holding call killed us

  246. Rojas Says:

    Foot work related.. that’s on the coaching. Enough said.

  247. Season Is Over Says:

    With how quiet the stadium is I guess the Stick Carriers don’t travel well.

  248. TeddyTB Says:

    @WeAreLost um duhh we are losers right now! Lol You think that 1 extra game we won against Carolina last year made any difference in a positive way. We ended up drafting like 5 spots further back. Y’all need to get realistic around here before the browns create a playoff team before us.

  249. MadMax Says:

    The cover was still on that monocular…..jeeze

  250. THETRUTH Says:

    No one cried last year about Winston when they went 9-7.
    It to early

    You guys would have gotten rid of Peyton manning after year one , Troy aikman after year one. Not that he is that but give him more than 2 years.

    Yes his accuracy on long ball sucks.

    This coach calls plays to. Out them in 3rd and long , calling bad game effects QB AS WELL.

  251. Bucnut2 Says:

    Smith is calling a good game

  252. Big Stinky Says:

    Playing better as a TEAM today

  253. Defense Rules Says:

    Again, Bucs’ D is holding tough. Even without Swaggy & Will Gholston. Smitty using the LBs much more effectively today to blitz.

  254. Season Is Over Says:

    Manning took his team to the playoffs in year 2 and 3 after two 3-13 seasons before that. There is no comparison with Mr. Magoo.

  255. Bighck61 Says:

    Yeah but it’s been three years and his down the field accuracy still sucks

  256. TeddyTB Says:

    @Seasonisover you either just hate Winston or you are a troll. He’s not even playing today, and is also not responsible for the Defense being horrible. And if you’re not sure a NFL team can draft & work Free agency in one offseason to bounce back just look at the Rams this year.

  257. Bighck61 Says:

    Why is Payton Barber not in the game ????

  258. THETRUTH Says:

    How many bad years has Jamies had ? Should I say seasons

  259. denjoe Says:

    Koetter is a slow learner!

  260. Season Is Over Says:

    Yes, I know other teams can do it. I’m saying the Bucs have been rebuilding for a decade. At some point the fans have to rebel against the losing.

  261. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    weird jason licht didnt try and get kony ealy to help our outstanding DL

  262. cmurda Says:

    Fitz is laughable. Throws behind the receiver consistently. Go ahead and blame Dirk for a Qb and O Line that just stink.

  263. Big Stinky Says:

    Offense going to lose us this game. That’s 4 times past the 50 with no points

  264. THETRUTH Says:

    Different QB same result boys on offfense.

    Again where is Howard , best TE to come out in years and we don’t use him all year.

    Where is the OC putting players In position for success

  265. denjoe Says:

    Idiot just keeps Doug in there.

  266. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Winston in this game, healthy and we have 17 or so points. That’s a fact. I’m not even going to entertain the baphoons that said Fitz is in now we can win. It’s purely laughable. This is the case of every loss. One side shows up the other doesn’t. This week the offense sucks. Then again they have scored one touchdown in like 11 quarters

  267. CutKoetter Says:

    Season Is Over – Dude, with the exception of the Late-Dungy and very Early-Gruden era this team has sucked more than a Hoover warehouse since its inception. What is the only constant through all this agony? The ownership. The Glazers are far more focused on their real cash cow in Manchester and 98% of their decisions about the Bucs have been woefully stupid. How long can we the fans of this bunch of bozos suffer through this ownership-driven epic failure?

  268. Defense Rules Says:

    Great stop Bucs. Lavonte & GMCnoth in there.

  269. jj Says:

    Dirk punishing Peyton Barber for his aggressive running style last week, LOL. Charles Sims is still on our roster, LOL. Can we move D Smith to to RT please, even though that was a BS penalty, I have seen enough already.

  270. Big Stinky Says:

    LVD playing good today

  271. TeddyTB Says:

    By the way I want us to tank because I believe the team is actually talented and just has bad leadership. That means if we do end up drafting high we’ll be in a great position to turn it around next year. Don’t act like we don’t need DEs, CBs, OLineman, and a RB.

  272. TeddyTB Says:

    Safety too I’m tired of the Chris Conte Experiment

  273. denjoe Says:

    Charles Sims is still on our roster, LOL.

    That’s what i was thinking!

  274. Season Is Over Says:

    Coach “3 and Out” Koetter should really think about changing the game plans.

  275. THETRUTH Says:

    O line got worse when we moved marpet, smith and martin suck

    Coach losing team cause playing guys who don’t produce and play bad

  276. Big Stinky Says:


  277. ElioT Says:

    Nobody f**ks with the Jesus!

  278. denjoe Says:

    I use to like dirk but I’m over it!

  279. unbelievable Says:

    Dotson and Smith lead the team in penalties.

    Defense has been playing well at least.

  280. Big Stinky Says:

    We run too often on the first play of drives

  281. jj Says:

    BTW did Adam Humphries get into D Martins stash? He can’t catch at all this year.

  282. unbelievable Says:

    LOL @ punishing Barber 😂😂

  283. denjoe Says:

    Is he saving barber for the 4th quarter?

  284. unbelievable Says:

    What gives Joe? Have I been banned?

  285. Matts17 Says:

    Fitz is beyond bad but the OL is worse as it can’t help him by establishing the run. This team, coach and GM remind me of those 80’s teams that were void of any talent or heart.

  286. theodore Says:

    I fell asleep. What year is it?

  287. Defense Rules Says:

    Beckwith is quick … nice tackle for loss.

  288. TeddyTB Says:

    Hey Joe can we get a new Uniform contest posted on the site. Fans need to take something into our own hands lol. I wanna be able to buy new Bucs gear and still look good.

  289. jj Says:

    Kudos to Licht on Beckwith!! Dude is a real man, should have been sending him off the edge all year, M Smith

  290. CutKoetter Says:

    @Matts17 – Fully agree… they don’t even look like they want to be out there, and Fitz is stinkin’ up the stadium. Maybe I can play QB for the Bucs… I can’t be worse!

  291. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Good challenge finally Koetter!!!!

  292. Big Stinky Says:

    Nice challenge Dirk

  293. MadMax Says:

    Beckwith, such a bright light on this D!

  294. cmurda Says:

    That’s a fumble. I do have to say Kwon has had a very nice game. Nice to see. The defense looks motivated. Fitz needs to do something now.

  295. CutKoetter Says:

    @TeddyTB – I had over $1000 of pewter uniform gear but since the Alarm Clock redesign I even peeled the Bucs sticker off my car. Totally embarrassing.

  296. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    I have been saying for years let the play go and rule afterward. It’s clear the balls out and they get a touchdown. Yet they rule him down and can’t reverse that to give 7

  297. unbelievable Says:

    💯 fumble!

  298. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We just gots screwed out of a td!!!

  299. unbelievable Says:


  300. cmurda Says:

    Of course if the refs get it right originally than LVD walks into endzone.

  301. Matt Says:

    Should have been a td

  302. Defense Rules Says:

    LOVE the small sign on the back of that line judge’s helper: “I Will Always Stand!” So cool and appropriate this weekend especially.

  303. denjoe Says:

    Kwon’s Back!

  304. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I really like Godwin. He could be a star in this league.

  305. Big Stinky Says:

    Nice pass finally on first down again

  306. Rojas Says:

    This oline is terrible.

  307. Defense Rules Says:

    Bucs’ OLine run-blocking is a joke. Barber didn’t have a prayer on that play. Waste of a down.

  308. Swanee Says:

    Much better defense today. Much better tackling. It is a fumble absolutely.

  309. denjoe Says:


  310. Defense Rules Says:

    Fitz should’ve known better on that INT. Thank heaven for the penalty on the Jets.

  311. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    LMAO 😂😂😂

  312. BucsSuck Says:

    This OL hates to run block

  313. 1Gr8Buc Says:

    Hope you idiots calling for Fitz are happy. Effing embarrassment to the fanbase.

  314. AlteredEgo Says:

    The Refs are the best paid legs on the field today….what a queer game

  315. Defense Rules Says:

    At least our OLine is getting good at helping up the Bucs’ RBs after they get stuffed for a loss.

  316. Rojas Says:

    DLine, and Oline have to be the first two picks next year.

  317. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Keep running koetter. You’re a genius. Worst offensive line in Bucs history and you guys give jameis a hard time. It’s incredible.

  318. Big Stinky Says:

    Lucky penalty for Fitzy

  319. denjoe Says:

    F ing OL

  320. Swanee Says:

    FG coming up …..

  321. cmurda Says:

    4th and 2. Dirk doesn’t go for it. That’s how coaches lose jobs.

  322. Season Is Over Says:

    It can’t be the OL. We have been told all along that Martin forgot how to run the ball.

  323. unbelievable Says:

    Barber getting stuffed in the backfield time and time again.

    It must be Doug Martins fault!

  324. Swanee Says:

    Good thing jets are most penalized secondary in league… Got lucky

  325. BucsSuck Says:

    Smart play taking the FG right there.

  326. Defense Rules Says:

    We have a kicker. Now if we just had an offense.

  327. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The defensive improvement is nice to see. But we still can’t score points. Like I said earlier, we will probably win just enough games to miss out on the top pass rushers and OT in this draft. Smh

  328. Big Stinky Says:

    Good thing we FINALLY have a kicker

  329. MadMax Says:

    GJ Murray!!!!!

  330. ChanEpic Says:

    Defense has to win this game. And if they do it’ll be huge for this Defense.

  331. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Murray has been gold. To think, we had him before drafting Aguayo.

  332. Swanee Says:

    Nice hands #11. Really

  333. denjoe Says:

    Keep it up D!

  334. BucsSuck Says:


    The offense is struggling and taking the field goal was the correct call. Defense is playing very well and make the Jets get a TD instead of tying the game with a field goal

  335. ChanEpic Says:

    Tapp? OK good stuff.

  336. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    WOW! Can our guys FINALLY be sensing when there’s blood in the water.

  337. Swanee Says:

    Best offense coming onto field. Murray best offensive player on this team.

  338. Defense Rules Says:

    Darryl Tapp? Say what? Nice sack though.

  339. Sierra048 Says:

    Damn! A td with the extra point still beats us. Gutless coaching. No wonder the stands will be empty at the remaining home games. Ticket buyers deserve better than this crap.

  340. unbelievable Says:

    Is that 3 sacks today?

  341. Not there yet Says:

    Not able to watch the game but stats say c Baker having a better game than gmc

  342. Tb601 Says:

    Yea we will win just to mess up the draft pick

  343. jj Says:

    3rd and Mike Smith, please don’t sit back in that stupid soft zone

  344. Rojas Says:

    Oline might be a bigger need than dline. This oline is just pathetic. Starting with D Smth

  345. Chris Says:

    Feel like I’ve gone back in the Delorean to 1977

  346. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Seasonisover while I hate your posts you’re spot on here. The running backs and QB aren’t the problem. Coach doesn’t help but he may not the problem. This offensive line that licht build and handpicked is one hundred percent appalling. It doesn’t matter what running back is there. Yet “Sage Ira” wants to say Martin lost his burst and isn’t good anymore. You can’t even evaluate when every back is getting slobberknockered every play in the backfield. Gimme a break. The talent evaluation of the site runners is a little scary

  347. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Murray has been gold. To think, we had him before drafting Aguayo.

    The predictions I made for this game:

    “Bucs win in a close game.
    Defense gets 4 or more sacks.
    Fitz throws 2 picks.
    ASJ scores once.
    McCown throws two picks…maybe three”

  348. BucsSuck Says:

    @Not There Yet

    LOL McCoy is disruptive like always

  349. unbelievable Says:

    Bonzai you’re right on about half of those so far

  350. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Here is a major change I’m seeing at least for today. It looks like our guys…especially the D are having FUN!!!

  351. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Fitz has one pick McCown has one ASJ hasn’t scored. Just stop Bonzai.

  352. DB55 Says:

    48% completion percentage and you mf want to talk about inaccuracy? Smh

  353. unbelievable Says:

    Defense is fired up.

    Good to see them playing with passion today!

  354. denjoe Says:

    We need 5 more Fg’s.

  355. Defense Rules Says:

    Is our OLine intentionally not blocking?

  356. Swanee Says:

    Why is The GM drafted a kicker at number 2, with Murray available is mind boggling . Murray has been outstanding. Will cost him his job at end of this season…..

  357. Mike in LOL Says:

    Why on earth do we keep rushing Martin up the middle on 1st…

  358. Big Stinky Says:

    This defense is ridiculous!!! Why bother playing so good today? Nothing to gain but Jets offense did allow 26 sacks before today

  359. unbelievable Says:

    Alright then Joe, peace!

  360. DB55 Says:

    Not there yet Says:
    November 12th, 2017 at 3:20 pm
    Not able to watch the game but stats say c Baker having a better game than gmc
    I’ve said this for weeks. Most people shouldn’t talk sports.

  361. ChanEpic Says:

    @Broy34WantsGruden – ha! Get ’em.

  362. Defense Rules Says:

    Looked like Jets had NINE guys in the box on that 3rd-and-1.

  363. Big Stinky Says:

    Nice pass on 3rd & 1

  364. Rojas Says:

    Nice accuracy Fitz lol

  365. MadMax Says:

    Godwin! So glad we drafted him! Needs to take over for me13

  366. Swanee Says:

    Forget running the ball Coach K. Ridiculous, offensive lines running blocking is worst in NFC.

  367. Defense Rules Says:

    Pretty obvious hold by Sweezy. Ugly.

  368. Matts17 Says:

    Sweezy is garbage. Hey Licht, your OL is a complete embarrassment.

    That’s Licht’s pet Sweezy, smh!

  370. Big Stinky Says:

    Penalties killing both teams

  371. ChanEpic Says:

    Sweezy murdered his guy and D Martin STILL got hammered. #OLSuspectAF

  372. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    OJ Howard is the most underutilized talent in football EVER. lol

  373. Defense Rules Says:

    Beautiful run by Sims.

  374. Rojas Says:

    D Smith, and Sweezy = weakest links on Oline

  375. BuccoDav Says:

    Look at that dancing bear run!

  376. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Sims on a CRITICAL long 3rd down romp. That’s what keeps Koetter fired up.

  377. jj Says:

    Great run Sims

  378. Swanee Says:

    Get Sweezy out of game. No discipline by this head coach…

  379. TeddyTB Says:

    I love how everybody is FINALLY turning on the OL a season and a half too late.

  380. Bucnut2 Says:

    Really sloppy game.

  381. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Say what you want about playcalling but this has been a critical clock sucking drive. I think DK has the Jets off balance and they’ve been on the field enough they apppear to be sucking a bit for air. If the Bucs could somehow get a TD we win!!!

  382. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    U sound rediculously stupid. An O lineman has 2 penalties in a game and ur ready to bench him? Lol. U must be trolling

  383. ChanEpic Says:

    @TeddyTB – to be fair this is NOT the same OL from a season and a half ago.

  384. Swanee Says:

    Bring Murray out now before we turn it over.

  385. TeddyTB Says:

    @ChanEpic besides Sweezy who was on the roster just not playing it basically is.

  386. Gundam Wing 805 Says:

    Pee wee football is more exciting than these two boring teams

  387. Bucnut2 Says:

    Finally able to run the ball.

  388. Gundam Wing 805 Says:

    Coaches suck bad we need a brand new team

  389. Bucnut2 Says:

    This is the same formula for last year’s winning streak. Defense dominant, offense ugh.

  390. Swanee Says:

    Goat. Thinking like you will end up with 4-12 seasons. Nothing wrong with sitting him a series especially when he consistently holds and false starts. He holds cause he misses his blocks. You know that this line is extremely undisciplined and it continues after 8 games into the season.

  391. ChanEpic Says:

    @TeddyTb – Sweezy and Marpet playing out of position are two big changes though.

  392. jj Says:

    yeah Sims

  393. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Nice TD Sims!!!!!!

    Jameis would have overthrown him!!!!!!

    Yay Fitzie!!!!!

  394. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That seals the win, and our chances at an elite pass rusher or elite OT

  395. Defense Rules Says:

    Great play selection on that TD. Not so much on the 2-point conversion. Good idea going for 2 though.

  396. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    There we go…some freaking separation. So DK calls his best drive of the entire season. Ate clock…got the TD….that’s what can happen when we’re able to run ball.

  397. MadMax Says:


  398. FromTtoAtl Says:

    Yeah, boy! I hope I’m still smiling tomorrow morning.

  399. BuccoDav Says:

    There were times on that drive that the offense looked like a real NFL offense…

  400. richardtyson Says:

    A win feels good now but when it comes to draft day how is it going to feel?

  401. Season Is Over Says:

    We are back! Eight game winning streak to go to playoffs.

  402. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    Cue the “told you we’d win with Fitz “ crap. He was awful. Defense won this game and it’s not a debate

  403. Gundam Wing 805 Says:

    Koerter is garbagek

  404. Broy34WantsGruden Says:

    5 sacks today. Give u that one Bonzai. Good lordie. Could the table have turned on the defense again? Hurry back jameis

  405. Season Is Over Says:

    Love how McCoy celebrates a the opposing OL is totally gassed, I haven’t done anything all day sack like a true franchise player.

  406. Bucnut2 Says:

    QB pressure?? Wow. that’s what it looks like!

  407. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    How angry would we have been if GMC’s celebration drew a flag…as was discussed on Hard Knocks. For heaven sakes win the freaking game and then go nuts!!!!

  408. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Stupid Bucs can’t even lose right.

  409. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The predictions I made for this game:

    Bucs win in a close game.
    Defense gets 4 or more sacks. DONE
    Fitz throws 2 picks. DONE (though the second was called back by a penalty)
    ASJ scores once. NOT SO FAR
    McCown throws two picks…maybe three ONE PICK SO FAR

  410. Matts17 Says:

    Again, how did either of these two absolutely awful teams win a single game this year?

    I’m reminded painfully so of the Repus Bowl.

  411. SeattleBuc Says:


  412. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    No one else saw us getting 4+ sacks!

  413. MadMax Says:

    So the D finally wakes up after being called out so much…smdh! WTF GUYS! But glad you did it.

    5 sacks in one game so far when they had 8 all year!

    Who bought in and brought the rest with him?

  414. Swanee Says:

    You’re right win doesn’t matter as far as this season. It sure hurts are draft position. Would of loved to get Bryce Love or Chubb but they will be gone.

  415. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:


  416. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I agree with all that our Defense showed up and won this game for us…but at least the O did their part.

    Did Fitzpatrick win this game for us…of course not…but he did NOT lose it either.
    And in fact he did a very workman like job of managing this game.

  417. Defense Rules Says:

    Absolutely hate the prevent defense. Dumber than dirt.

  418. Sierra048 Says:

    St. Pete, it appears there are alot of posters on here that would rather lose every game the rest of the year for a top three draft pic. Cowards and quitters. And obviously have no $$ in tickets for the rest of our home games.

  419. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol u want a rb in the 1st?

  420. denjoe Says:

    I’ll take this win!

  421. Season Is Over Says:

    The Stick Carriers are going to riot leaving the stadium.

  422. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I would be saying 1 down 7 to go but I know it’s bad to look beyond next week.

    One week at a time. I just hope this gives us some renewed confidence in two areas we’ve been weak….pass rush and running the ball.

  423. lurker Says:

    if you are not in the playoffs, you want a high draft pick…..hello

    just because you made a bad investment in the bucs does not make them cowards or quitters…lol

  424. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The season is over. what do u not understand about that? U knew when u bought the tickets that is was a gamble. Sell em. Winning 8 games every year just so u can have fun at the games is how we end up as the jets or Rams for the past 5 years.
    I pay for Sunday ticket. I would much rather have us win, but it doesn’t make sense

  425. TeddyTB Says:

    Omg if we win of course we are going to be happy for the team. I’m not rooting to lose I’m just past ready to start winning playoff games. Like damn nobody remembers 7-9 or 8-8 seasons. You guys sound content to remaining a mediocre never feared team. But go Bucs

  426. lurker Says:

    stick carriers is a stupid ased name

  427. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, Im happy for this win!!! Especially w/o Jameis and Evans….(dammmit couldve traded them while their value was still high 2 weeks ago)

  428. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This win alone will put us back at like #7 or 8. As compared to #4 with 2 wins. At 4 we would have our pick of the top pass rusher or OT. At 7 or 8 we will be picking from the left overs in a horrible draft class

  429. Season Is Over Says:

    The Bucs DL thinks this game against a horrible OL is saving face from a terrible year causing them to be in the position they are in. Just wait for the nonsense interviews.

  430. Sierra048 Says:

    Quitting/ tanking with half the season left makes you a loser in my book. Glad you never played on any team I’ve ever played on. I want a victory anytime e play. If not why not just forfeit the rest of the season.

  431. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Good thing the DBs are the strongest unit on our team

  432. Matts17 Says:

    Both of these teams will have top 5 picks.

  433. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    UR NOT PLAYING. LOL. The players want to win. As a fan or GM it makes more sense to lose if the season is out of hand. It’s playoffs or bust. This is a busted season

  434. TeddyTB Says:

    Lmao @Sierra the players aren’t expected to actually try to lose games they do that on their own anyways. I’m just saying don’t flip the script now but clearly you’re one of those guys who shows off 2nd & 3rd place trophies.

  435. MadMax Says:

    Whoa Grimes!!!!!!!!!!!!

  436. Season Is Over Says:

    Quitting/Tanking gave us Can’t Hit a Receiver In Stride, America’s Present Laughingstock, Instigating, Injured, Captain of Immaturity, Losing, Only Seen in Local Markets, Backed into Pro Bowler Because Three Others Backed Out and Never Returned, Benched for Ineptness, Having His Best Season as A Pro, Drive Killer, Mr. Magoo aka Jameis Winston so you may be correct, Sierra.

  437. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    awesome the defense is fighting each other

  438. lurker Says:

    your book is a color by numbers, so no big deal

    no fan wants the team to quit, but they have way under-performed, or over-performed last year and still need a talent infusion. they way to do that is high draft picks, not meaningless wins

  439. MadMax Says:

    KWON AND GMC GOING AT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
