    Ward is starting today. He better not mess up

  4. Bucssuccs Says:

    Also, can any bucs players knock kiko Alonso upside the head for me? Dudes a punk

  5. SB Says:

    Prepare for ‘QB controversy’ talk nationally when we win our second game in a row with Fitz after a 5 game losing streak with JW3. National Media Loves the ‘C’ word.

  6. MadMax Says:

    Go Bucs! Go Fitz!!! Lets get this win!!

  7. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    Any media member that would suggest such a thing should be promptly fired.

  8. NJBucs Says:

    Lots of Bucs fans at game. Can we play a great game for once !!

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    Fitzy to Evans all day.

  10. LakeLand Says:

    Fitz shouldn’t even be in the NFL. Matter of fact, he shouldn’t be playing football at all.

  11. ATrain Says:

    Joes HERO
    In the Pictue

  12. ATrain Says:

    No pass interference

    The CB can grab the jersey????

  14. EasyTheGreat Says:

    Lol throw it to the receiver who’s eyes are in the sun. Good choice!

  15. unbelievable Says:

    soooo still no word on what happened with Reedy?

  16. Sydney Says:


  17. ATrain Says:



  18. THETRUTH Says:

    Why run on any down and long when your back averages 2 yards. Kotter play calling has dropped off

  19. MadMax Says:

    GO LVD….SACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. jugheadfla Says:

    swiss cheese

  21. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith is providing the tiny amount of assistance Koetter needs to lose his job.

  22. EasyTheGreat Says:

    LOL wow

  23. Matts17 Says:

    There’s that vaunted Buc run defense.

  24. ATrain Says:

    Only saw 93s Back on that one

    Pushed right down the line

  25. Bucssuccs Says:

    Bye bye Mike Smith

  26. Not there yet Says:

    GMC is garbage, he is the reason for that big run, he’s always letting himself get taken out of his Gap every game. Dude is sorry

  27. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Well….it appears the defense is not showing up today. I’ll second the blowout comment.

  28. Season Is Over Says:

    Defense came to play today.

  29. THETRUTH Says:

    Atrain keep eye on 93 and make sure you mention how he is in back field before other almost all the time. You got no clue if you think he is problem

  30. Buc Bobby Says:

    Geez nothing but a wealth of positive energy here already

  31. Not there yet Says:

    Can’t blame Mike Smith for how sorry to mc is but you can blame coaches who keep allowing him to make those errors when making him the focus of your defense

  32. The Anomaly Says:

    That is awful defense by our d ine

  33. ATrain Says:

    93 in his back


    Million Dollar Open Door

  34. The Anomaly Says:

    Nice pick

  35. MadMax Says:

    INT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. EasyTheGreat Says:

    Sweet INT

  37. Buc Bobby Says:


  38. ATrain Says:



  39. cmurda Says:

    Justin Evans. Wow. It’s starting to look like Licht may have hit on that pick.

  40. ATrain Says:

    In Fact he was the last on on the line I️ that play

  41. Season Is Over Says:

    If you can’t beat them, trip them.

  42. The Anomaly Says:

    Was that his longest run of the year?

  43. MadMax Says:

    And Dougie found a hole!!!

  44. webster Says:

    Where are the justin evans haters?

  45. MadMax Says:

    Fitz to Howard!!! Had that been JW it wouldve been over his head at that distance!!

  46. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    So let’s see…two draft picks showing up…the moron Licht!!!!

  47. Rojas Says:

    Damn Suh just threw D Smith like nothing

  48. Season Is Over Says:

    Justin Evans haters? He got gifted a horrible pass by Brady and just tripped the Dolphin to get that interception. Unless you are watching a different game than I am.

  49. unbelievable Says:

    That might be a touchdown if Fitz makes a better throw…

  50. cmurda Says:

    Offense stinks. Get a little OJ going and then we crap out per usual in the red zone. Come on Bucs. Lets go

  51. Sydney Says:


  52. EA Says:

    Very predictable on that Simms pass, usual Dirk

  53. unbelievable Says:

    terrible 3rd down play call in the red zone… I’m shocked.

  54. ElioT Says:

    Literally 1 out of every 10 plays involving Charles Sims works in any fashion.

    Bullsh*t play call on 3rd and 6 in the red zone.

    Koetter is a pu**y!

  55. Swanee Says:

    Best offensive player on the field. It’s good as usual.

  56. unbelievable Says:

    I dunno why you don’t have OJ in on the 3rd down package.

    Hey at least we have a kicker!!!!!!

  57. Buc Bobby Says:

    Hey some of you habitual haters, there’s room on the Saints bandwagon

  58. Buc Bobby Says:

    Geez some of you would find fault in paradise

  59. orlbucfan Says:

    Koetter hasn’t figured out how good his offense is. No wonder we are in the cellar.

  60. Buc Bobby Says:

    We just turned what could be a score against into a score for

  61. orlbucfan Says:

    3-0 Bucs. Whoopee.

  62. Matts17 Says:

    Ward, you’re a moron.

  63. ElioT Says:

    F**k TJ Ward.

    What is with these a**hats celebrating after getting burned?

  64. jugheadfla Says:

    its truly amazing how many missed assignments this defense has

  65. orlbucfan Says:

    Taunting? The Bucs?

  66. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Hey at least the Bucs are still stoopid eh. I’d be a horrible coach because I just would NOT tolerate this crap. Ward would hit the bench immediately. There was NO reason for that moronic play!!!!!!!!!!!!

  67. unbelievable Says:

    Until TJ Ward stops making a minimum of 1 boneheaded stupid play per game, he needs to STFU and just concentrate on playing better.

  68. Season Is Over Says:

    Hargreaves just did the airplane to the gatorade cooler.

  69. ATrain Says:

    This is the Worst OLine in the NFL

    And the we can’t get to the QB

  70. unbelievable Says:

    Looks like VH3 has infected the whole backfield.

    They all celebrate now when the opponent just flat misses a throw? smdh

  71. BucFan4Life Says:

    Mike Smith can’t leave soon enough. This defense is … an embarrassment.

  72. UKBucfan Says:

    Too easy that TD..
    soft soft soft defence; why can’t we find an open receiver in the opposition red zone just once in a while

  73. Season Is Over Says:

    I guess Evans couldn’t get there in time to trip Landry.

  74. orlbucfan Says:

    I’m listening to it on radio. Koetter is braindead regarding this offense. Bucs curse rears its ugly head. 🙁

  75. Buc Bobby Says:

    That score is on Ward

  76. ATrain Says:

    The Cancer has set in on this whole Defense

  77. Rrsrq Says:

    How easy are the fins driving or getting down the field.

  78. Sydney Says:





  79. BucFan4Life Says:

    T J Ward, just a waste of money.

  80. unbelievable Says:

    I hope all his teammates are congratulating Ward for that touchdown drive.

  81. unbelievable Says:

    lol @ negative nancy Sydney over here.

    It’s a 4 point game bruh

  82. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    The cancer is playing hurt….no no no….he is being double or triple teamed. Arghhhhh! I can’t keep the excuses straight.

  83. BucFan4Life Says:

    I’d call Ward a turd but that’d be insulting turds.

  84. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Dude, it should be 14-0 if cutler doesnt throw that pick in the end zone.

  85. Bird Says:

    Devante Parker and Jarvis Landry are studs.

    To good for Ryan smith

    Grimes will be fine. Ryan smith will get abused

  86. Bird Says:

    Kwon looks lost out there. What happened to him.

    We need lavonte again to step up

  87. unbelievable Says:

    disgusting 2nd down play

  88. unbelievable Says:

    sure looks like Martin has some burst to me.

    But wtf do I know

  89. ElioT Says:

    Yep all Doug Martin’s fault.

    Right Joes?

    The offensive line doesn’t suck?

  90. Sydney Says:



  91. orlbucfan Says:

    I swear to god Koetter doesn’t get it in terms of how good this offense is. Why are we running Doug Martin? Fitz just ran for a first down. And then Martin loses yards cos it’s the usual SOS. Bucs are cursed.

  92. unbelievable Says:


    Didn’t you know? Doug is supposed to block defenders in the backfield AND run the ball, at the same time. (And probably play defense too)

  93. Ndog Says:

    That drive is on Kwon. Two horrible plays and they were designed to attack him and on both he took the bait.

  94. denjoe Says:

    C’mon FG!

  95. Matt B Says:

    That’s negative runs is Martin’s fault in some people’s eyes I’m sure

  96. Season Is Over Says:

    The Joes pined for Johnny Football for six months straight. You are surprised they are wrong on Martin?

  97. denjoe Says:

    Yay FG!

  98. AlteredEgo Says:

    This is not football….everything has changed….

  99. THETRUTH Says:

    When is last time we scored TD in first half ??

  100. orlbucfan Says:

    Still another field goal. 7-6. Koetter really sucks the big one!!

  101. Swanee Says:

    Murray again. Yes

  102. Bird Says:

    So glad we don’t need to look for kicker in offseason

    Murray is solid.

    Unfortunately we can move ball but don’t need fgs

  103. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    75 yard drive right here.

  104. EasyTheGreat Says:

    Kwon has looked horrible so far in this game

  105. denjoe Says:

    Anyone think we can get another FG?

  106. orlbucfan Says:

    Man, am I pissed off!!

  107. MadMax Says:

    GJ Murray!!! Never loved seeing FG’s made as much as these past 2 years!

  108. unbelievable Says:

    No red zone woes when Koetter was in Atl.

    What gives?

  109. Sam ficarrotta Says:

    Has anyone seen Jameis on the sideline?

  110. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy’s game check just cleared. Geraldini will escape the quadruple team now.

  111. EasyTheGreat Says:

    Bushrod pulled a Flair on McCoy

  112. ATrain Says:

    one drink

    For falling down

  113. ATrain Says:

    Oh No

    Game lost GMC is gone

  114. MadMax Says:

    Poking GMC in the eye? Come on man.

  115. The Anomaly Says:


  116. EasyTheGreat Says:

    LOL Cutler

  117. Bird Says:

    Hey. Kwon heard us

  118. MadMax Says:

    KWON INT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  119. The Anomaly Says:


  120. ATrain Says:

    Pressure without GMC??!!

  121. Buc Bobby Says:

    Kwon didnt look lost on that one

  122. denjoe Says:


  123. unbelievable Says:

    Wow what a gift from Cutler!

  124. ElioT Says:

    That was Doug’s fault again lol.

  125. denjoe Says:

    We should get another FG!

  126. orlbucfan Says:

    Now can we kindly get a touchdown?

  127. Wesley Says:

    Stop running on first down!!

  128. unbelievable Says:

    damn he just took a shot!

  129. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Bring on Murray already

  130. MadMax Says:

    OJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TD!!!!!!!!!!!!

  131. Bird Says:

    Yah baby

  132. denjoe Says:


  133. ATrain Says:

    Go Bucs!!!!!!

  134. mark2001 Says:

    Holy Schmidt…. Fitzpatrick actually is playing like an NFL QB.

  135. unbelievable Says:

    Nicely done.

    It’s almost like OJ should get targeted more often.

  136. Swanee Says:

    Fitz breaks the drought. Experience veteran that stays calm under pressure.

  137. Eric Says:

    Fitz is the answer!!!!

  138. orlbucfan Says:

    Praise the lord. Touchdown. 13-7. Oh well. Not impressed.

  139. Blake_Bucsfan Says:


    took the words outta my mouth

  140. William Walls Says:

    Roll Tide! Go Bucs!

  141. Howard Cosell Says:

    Defense is playing well.
    Offensive skill players are doing well.

    Oline is highly suspect…hopefully we can win in spite of them
    Run blocking is pathetic.

  142. MadMax Says:

    D is waking up again and our O is executing!!

    I know, its Miami and it was the Jets last week…but still great to see!

  143. Bird Says:

    Cutler has another pick in him

  144. Howard Cosell Says:

    Culter needs a cigarette

  145. Bird Says:


    You are one angry woman. I live in Orlando and I am terrified of you.

  146. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe Jameis will see that the weapons are there, and it is up to him to find the open guy….something Fitz seems to be doing very well today.

  147. Bird Says:


    Lavonte is filthy. That hit was savage

  148. Zwak Says:

    Both QBs are locking on their receivers from the snap, watch their heads! Many picks will happen today..

  149. Howard Cosell Says:

    54 scares me. I’m afraid he might accidentally hurt one of the blue players

  150. Bird Says:

    Yup. He does. Cutler doesn’t dissapoint

  151. Howard Cosell Says:

    Lol…..smokin Jay strikes again!

  152. William Walls Says:

    Good call, Bird!

  153. MadMax Says:

    3rd INT!!!!! MCCLAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dang D keep it going!!!

  154. unbelievable Says:


    Great job D!

    You think they play Matt Moore in the 2nd half?

  155. cmurda Says:

    Donovan Smith has to go. I saw that obvious hold when he first committed it.

  156. King C Says:

    We need a turnover chain!

  157. Season Is Over Says:

    Ali Muppet sucks at center.

  158. Swanee Says:

    Of course undisciplined knuckle head lineman cost us 7.

  159. UKBucfan Says:

    Can we play Cutler every week??

  160. unbelievable Says:

    Damn run OJ run!

    Too bad it’s coming back

  161. Season Is Over Says:

    Barber tripped over a blade of grass.

  162. Howard Cosell Says:

    Oline is the big time weak link on the Bucs

  163. unbelievable Says:

    That throw to the running back was Freeman-like

  164. Matt B Says:

    Wouldn’t be Sunday without a Donovan Smith penalty

  165. cmurda Says:

    Yeah but that was a crap throw by Fitz. It’s th easiest throw possible and ruined the timing of the play.

  166. Bird Says:

    Oj Howard is one of the biggest
    Guys on the field during games

    And runs a 4.5

  167. The Anomaly Says:


  168. unbelievable Says:

    yup, he would not have tripped if that throw was on target.

    Did Martin get a concussion on that last hit at the goal line?

  169. Swanee Says:

    Bring in Murray our best weapon. Evans can’t catch a cold.

  170. cmurda Says:

    Murray, you were on a roll man but you have to make that FG

  171. unbelievable Says:

    Cmon Mike!

  172. ElioT Says:

    Well 2017 Mike Evans is a non-factor.

    Elite WE getting shut down by every decent CB?

    Great Job Pat!!!!

  173. denjoe Says:


  174. unbelievable Says:



  175. Sydney Says:


  176. William Walls Says:

    Patrick “Murphy”?


  177. Swanee Says:

    I take that back. First miss I’ve seen. Not as good as I thought.

  178. Bird Says:

    Dude. The dbs hand was in. Between Evans and touched it first Good play by defender

    He didn’t drop it people

  179. unbelievable Says:

    So, a Donovan Smith penalty turned a touchdown into zero points.

  180. Walter Says:

    I was just about to comment on Murray hitting on 90% of his kicks so far, but then he misses from 42 🤷🏻‍♂️

  181. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    ME is just having an off year…there’s no way to sugar coat. No Im not suggesting that we trade him or stop loving him…just sayin’ he’s hurt us this year with horribly timed drops that are drive stoppers!!!

    I am over trash talking by ANYBODY on this team! That includes the QB!!!!

    Start showing us on the field because your freaking mouths are 3-6 right now.
    We are NOT impressed anymore with rah rah and mouthing.

  182. JonBuc Says:

    Somehow the Bucs will find a way to win that will feel like a loss.

  183. Sydney Says:

    “Swanee Says:
    November 19th, 2017 at 2:03 pm
    Bring in Murray our best weapon.”


  184. unbelievable Says:

    I guess there were 2 penalties on that play actually…

  185. King C Says:

    Whoever said Mike Evans dropped it is a liar

  186. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Donovan Smith’s nickname = Drive Killer

  187. Buc Bobby Says:

    Murray is a lot better than what we’ve had

  188. Defense Rules Says:

    Murray might’ve missed 3 points, but OLine screwed us out of 7 points.

  189. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    3 INTs and we are up by 6 points…..woooohooooo

  190. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Man, Imagine if Dirk had actually tried to use O.J. as a receiver like this in every game though?

  191. unbelievable Says:

    Agreed St. Pete, though there’s been many issues on the offense this season, at pretty much every position.

    Hard Knocks curse and all…

  192. Bird Says:


    What a great porn name

  193. BuccoDav Says:

    C’mon Gerald! Don’t waste your time making plays in the second quarter. Don’t you know second quarter plays don’t matter…

  194. Buc Bobby Says:

    No wonder Bushrod poked McCoy in the yey

  195. THETRUTH Says:

    A train where is the positive

    93 !!

  196. Swanee Says:

    Haaa. Sorry Sydney won’t happen again.

  197. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Got lucky there.

  198. ATrain Says:

    McCoy did what

    They was one blocker in him

  199. Buc Bobby Says:

    Eye too

  200. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  201. THETRUTH Says:

    A train where is the positive

    93 !!


  202. ATrain Says:

    Two drinks

  203. THETRUTH Says:

    A train go study your Madeen 2017 Xbox Manuel it obvious that is where you learn your football

  204. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Jeebus…are the stupidest team in the league? STOP with the brain dead penalties…what part of this do grown men with educations not understand?

  205. Swanee Says:

    Wow are we really undisciplined team. That’s on the coaching.

  206. THETRUTH Says:

    At least your a Buc fan give you that much

  207. ElioT Says:

    Can we stomp on someone’s f**king neck already.

    Let’s go!!!

  208. Steven007 Says:

    ATrain has an agenda just like Trollmax. In fact I think he’s now officially Trolltrain.

  209. Bayers Says:

    Come on bucs tighten up. I’m glad they figured out how to use oj howard

  210. cmurda Says:

    We just had 3 penalties on special teams. Our special teams has been pretty lousy just to add to the depression.

  211. unbelievable Says:

    Not sure I’ve ever seen 3 flags against 1 team on 1 play.

  212. ATrain Says:

    Ok tell me what he did in that play


    Truth go kiss your McCoy Fathead and get a Mr Softie ice cream

    You McCoy fans kill me BLIND


  213. Sydney Says:



  214. Quattrolou Says:

    What is with the heavy dose of Simms

  215. ATrain Says:


    No answer TRUTH

  216. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy got quintupled teamed on that last drive.

  217. Not there yet Says:

    I hate having an offensive coordinator and coach who thinks it’s ok to use 4 running backs every game

  218. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  219. mark2001 Says:

    Here is the difference. Fitz sees what is open and is happy to move the chains and live another series. Jameis locks on his guy, it is a big play or a miss and a punt.

  220. MadMax Says:


  221. jugheadfla Says:

    can they have one decent play without getting a flag??? geezus!!!

  222. THETRUTH Says:

    Look up numbers and compare to other Dt. Defensive tackle not defensive end those are two different positions. He has had no support on line the entire time.

    I’m sorry did you not see his tackle for loss

  223. MadMax Says:

    Crap MARPET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AH!!!!!!

  224. Bird Says:

    That is not a block in the back

    Major bs

  225. cmurda Says:

    Refs at it again against the Bucs. Definitely not a block in the back. He engaged his side and that’s legal

  226. Bill Says:

    We never should have released aguayo

  227. Matts17 Says:

    God these two teams are awful.

  228. Defense Rules Says:

    Beautiful run Doug. Lousy block Marpet. OLine screws us again.

  229. denjoe Says:

    Come on Muppet!

  230. ATrain Says:

    No there was no other Defensive player

    One guy had hands on McCoy

  231. unbelievable Says:

    Cmon Ali you can’t’ fkn do that!

    How many 15+ yard plays have we had called back this year?

    I can think of at least 8 of them, 2 of which were touchdowns.

  232. Quattrolou Says:

    4th infective running back of the day.

  233. THETRUTH Says:

    Not blind fan just know and played the game for real not on a gaming system.

    Reason why his peers vote him top 3 all the time , actually players who have more knowledge than you and me

  234. Lamarcus Says:

    Yea. Man. Every big play gets called back like all year long

  235. Season Is Over Says:

    3rd and 17 screen? Koetter is tanking on purpose.

  236. unbelievable Says:

    I know it’s so frustrating. As soon as I saw Marpet make that hit I knew a flag was coming.

    Fitz just got lucky on that pass

  237. cmurda Says:

    Koetter never goes for it which might be the reason his job is on the line. Show some semblance of a pair and go for this.

  238. Bird Says:

    Good play call

    Almost got it. Better field position.

    Go for it. Why not

  239. William Walls Says:

    That was a clean blick by Marpet!

  240. William Walls Says:

    And his block was clean, too.

  241. unbelievable Says:

    ugh, 2 yards short!

    Sims and OJ got some serious wheels

  242. ATrain Says:

    Really Truth

    I’m sure you played at a Big time College

    By the way do you remember the Players Calling McCoy out for being soft

    They also know more than You and me

    McCoy is a Good Player that other players Like


    He needs be in the backfield
    Pressuring the QB and getting a few sacks

    Remember a GREAT DT Warren Sapp
    McCoy can’t hold Sapp’s cleats

  243. Quattrolou Says:

    Miami can’t move the ball. We are on the fifty. Why not get the 1st down. No lets punt in a meaningless game

  244. mark2001 Says:

    A rare poor punt.

  245. mark2001 Says:

    Good decision to punt it.

  246. Bird Says:


  247. THETRUTH Says:

    Always one play from being down on scoreboard we can never take a 2 possession lead

  248. MadMax Says:

    4th TO……GJ D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  249. EasyTheGreat Says:

    Ryan Smith might have a future with this team

  250. Bird Says:

    Yah. We don’t need our offense today. Man

    4 turnovers

  251. Quattrolou Says:

    Miami is garbage. That says a lot coming from a Bucs fan.

  252. JohnBoy Says:

    Bucs should be up by 20. Jeez guys – c’mon and punch it in the end zone.

  253. King C Says:

    Miami is hell bent on giving the game to Tampa (Like the Patriots on Thursday nite)

    Will the Bucs take it tho?

  254. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    OJ…Evans…Ryan Smith (virtually a rookie)…three brand new players making an impact today. Yeah that Licht can’t draft squat.

  255. Bird Says:

    Justin Evans started that turnover.

    3 guys coming at him and he went ballistic

    Could be real good

    Need more savages like him

  256. MadMax Says:

    3 INT’s and a fumble recovery in the first half….nice job D!

  257. ATrain Says:

    Where is BRATE

  258. MadMax Says:

    Oh! Nice catch ME13!

  259. mark2001 Says:

    Touch pass between the levels…Jameis….watch…

  260. Swanee Says:

    Outstanding pass by FITZ.

  261. JohnBoy Says:

    Another drop by Evans.

  262. lurker Says:

    accuracy on deep passes?


  263. MadMax Says:

    Fitz gonna be our QB for a while…..bye JW3

  264. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    One guy who should get a shout out is Fitz. He’s playing much better today than last week. Yeah the turnovers have set us up but our receivers got to hang onto the balll that was a TD ME couldn’t bring in!!!!

    Hey the Dolphins may be even dumber than us!!!

  265. Bird Says:


  266. Swanee Says:

    Roughing passer. Stupid play by #47. Fitz will stick it into end zone now

  267. mark2001 Says:

    Finding the open man…watch Jameis…watch.

  268. cmurda Says:

    I have to admit. Fitz has been money

  269. JohnBoy Says:

    Good job Fitz. Let’s go for two.

  270. MadMax Says:

    WHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DJAX!!!! FITZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  271. Swanee Says:

    There it is….

  272. Bird Says:

    Yah Boy

    Fitz is driving team. Hitting open guys.

  273. lurker Says:

    sorta a ticky tacky call, but accurate

  274. ATrain Says:

    Fitz has a better touch on the ball

  275. Season Is Over Says:

    I love these “we were done by Halloween” celebrations.

  276. unbelievable Says:

    Fitz played great on that drive.

  277. cmurda Says:

    That was the only drop by Evans and Evans was looking low even though he should have caught the TD anyway. The other Evans play was hit away by Miami CB

  278. Bird Says:

    Think kiko Alonzo has anger management issues.

  279. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    After watching Alonzo’s cheap shot of Flacco and his hit on Fitz…some guys need to jog buy and let him know we’re going to be shooting for his knees.

  280. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Fitzpatrick is looking good!!!
    Not sure if it is better playcalling, Fitz willing to check down, the fact he can simply hit WR’s, or all of the above but he is looking waaaaaayyyy better than Jameis.

    Hope that shoulder takes a litter longer to heal

  281. lurker Says:

    we are beat/are beating 2 teams worse than us…

  282. Defense Rules Says:

    Fitz is doing awesome at finding the open man. You can tell he’s in command of this offense right now.

  283. ATrain Says:

    Why didn’t we go for 2

  284. Steven007 Says:

    Trolltrain, nice job mentioning something other than GMC. You’re learning.

  285. unbelievable Says:

    I wouldn’t say way better, but he’s play quite well today with the exception of a few passes to the running backs and 1 bad throw to Howard.

  286. mark2001 Says:

    I’ve been saying this for months. Jameis is much more talented…no doubt. But there have been many open guys that Jameis just hasn’t seen, as he seems to try to force to the guy he intends…. H or high water. Jameis…you don’t have to make the play you intend from the snap. Find the open guy, move the chains, and great things will happen.

  287. LifeOfABucFan Says:


    Nice to see accurate throws for a change!!!!

  288. Maxx Says:

    Fitz really knows when to “drop it in” vs. fastball one between impossible odds. Love Jameis but he can definitely, hopefully learn by watching from his,perspective now that he doesn’t have to win every play on every pass.

  289. Lee Cohen Says:

    Fitzpatrick is our quarterback of the future. As long as Fitz is winning, then no Winston.

  290. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    So the Dolphins did their part with the turnovers…but as DR pointed out Fitz is finding the open man and that seems to have helped our running game…unless the OL was finally humiliated and decided to do something about it.

    BTW…Am I correct…no TD’s in the first half of the past five games and now 2!!!

  291. ATrain Says:

    Thank you Steven

    Sorry you don’t like bad things said about Your Boy

    Troll Train. Hahah


  292. unbelievable Says:

    Only an idiot would think McCoy isn’t have a good game so far…

  293. ATrain Says:

    Crush anyone one here

    But Mr Softie

    Troll=GMC hater

  294. Swanee Says:

    Yes Lurker you’re right ,,, Dolphins are an awful team too. But Fitz puts points on the board for the Bucs and makes them a team which will be in all their remaining 7 games.

  295. ATrain Says:

    What has he done??

    I haven’t seen him in the backfield once

    He stands straight up everytime

    High School coaches call that a chicken fight

  296. Steven007 Says:

    Trolltrain, the reason you’re a troll is as follows. First, you have a silly agenda. GMC has played a solid game as he usually does. Why do you care what he makes? His salary hasn’t prevented the Bucs from getting any player they wanted. There are no salary cap issues because of his big salary. They obviously felt he earned it. Do you think it’s okay when Adam Humphries and Cameron Brate drop passes because they don’t make much? GMC is 1/22 of this team. To concentrate on that aspect reveals more about your own issues than any he may have.

  297. MadMax Says:

    Fitz knows he’s got a chance for a huge pay day with us! He’s making the best of it. Old school thinking…in light of the circumstances, thats all.

    Keep playing him as long as he’s doing it and let JW3 watch and HOPEFULLY learn!

  298. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Great first half! Yes, yes I know it’s Miami we are playing. Let’s be real though. We have all seen our Bucs make crappy teams look good. That is not happening today.

  299. Steven007 Says:

    Correction, 1/53rd. Obviously I only mentioned starters.

  300. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy isn’t having a good game. He gets paid to be a difference maker. I guess it is hard to make plays when you are octupled teamed.

  301. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Now this is the kind of offense I expect from Koetter . Good complementary football. But you gotta give it to Fitz for capitalizing on turnovers and keeping the chains moving.

  302. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Offense sucks

    GMC sucks even more

  303. Seminole Bill Says:

    Jameis could learn a few things from Fitz – like how not to try and force the ball in.

  304. mark2001 Says:

    Personally, here is what I would like to say regarding the open man game Fitz is playing….Jameis…we have enough talented guys on this offense, if you can get a guy in open space, he can YAC, and often turn 10 yards into twenty or thirty, and at least moving the chains builds momentum. Forcing the ball twenty yards down field, in a harder and high risk throw, often nets no more net yards when it works, and often results in an incompletion or a higher percentage turn over rate.

  305. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Fitz is already a multi..multi millionaire after all his years in the league. He’s not a guy who needs a dozen cars and lots of bling. I think he’s past money.

    But he does LOVE the game. Read about his time in high school and at Harvard and after reading his coaches you realize that Fitz is an incredibly competitive guy.

    Some people show that competitive fire yelling and jumping around and eating their fingers…others just go out and give it everything they have. Not that the two are mutually exclusive…I’m not slamming #3…just pointing out there is more than one way to lead.

  306. Season Is Over Says:

    Hargreaves is still doing the airplane in the locker room.

  307. Steven007 Says:

    At a minimum GMC has had the 4-yard tfl and caused a penalty. Could you imagine if every player on defense did the same? And again, I don’t care what the man is paid. It makes no difference to me. They are very happy with him obviously. 2 sack game last week which I guess wasn’t enough either. Listen, he’s not Sapp and he has deficiencies No Doubt. But to slam him constantly particularly with no context is just ridiculous and reveals more about the people complaining that it does about the player.

  308. ATrain Says:

    Well Steven

    You have shown that no matter what you defend this creampuff

    Many Fans see the no play or soft play you simply look past this
    Many players have called him out. You also pay no attention

    Simply calling me a Troll is easy

    Has he been close to the QB. Made a backfield tackle or a Sack


    Yes if he gets paid superstar money as a fan I look for superstar

  309. SeattleBuc Says:

    McCoy isn’t having a good game. He gets paid to be a difference maker. I guess it is hard to make plays when you are octupled teamed.

    … Gerald did have a tackle 6 yrds in the backfield.

  310. Steven007 Says:

    He most definitely had a backfill tackle. Before yard lost that you’ve conveniently ignored. And then he forced a holding penalty on an offense of lineman. Don’t be an idiot. You can have your own opinion but you can’t have your own facts.

  311. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    All you McCoy haters suck donkey balls and can F-OFF!!!! GO lick some Brady balls and leave this team !!!!! Y’all find anything to b**** about no matter winning or losing so all I can say is F-OFF

  312. Steven007 Says:

    *back field AKA: TFL

  313. ATrain Says:

    No context

    Go back and reread my post

    On his back
    Pushed down the line like a pillow

    But no changing your mind
    If it makes you feel better call me a Troll

    I bet youra everyone wins guy

  314. orlbucfan Says:

    Welp, we’ll see who wins. Go Bucs!!

  315. America's Groper Says:

    Shameis was taking notes on the sidelines, yeah right, he was just evaluating the cheerleaders for future endevors

  316. MadMax Says:

    Thanks StPete, wasnt aware, but as everything competitive goes, a good pay day is a good pay day 😉

    Im rooting for him. Maybe he’s found his spot on this team. The team sure seems to have found a spot in playing hard with him….especially our D. Whatever it takes to work though, Im all in.

  317. Steven007 Says:

    Train, I’m a Bucs Fan first and foremost. Even with this crappy season we are playing an okay game so far. Why you waste energy riding your GMC hobby horse I have no idea. To quote Lovie it’s as simple as that.

  318. Mord Says:

    Wow. Brent Grimes.. Damn!!!

  319. Season Is Over Says:

    Just to put this into perspective. McCoy makes 16 million a season and we are celebrating a backfield tackle? Some teams don’t even pay their QB that much. That is 4 million per sack so far this year.

  320. Sydney Says:



  321. BuccoDav Says:

    Evans on Landry…huge mismatch.

  322. ATrain Says:

    You quoted Lovie

    Oh crap Im Done

    I bet you think he needed another year

  323. Quattrolou Says:

    McClain garbage

  324. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Uh Oh….Joe Montana in for Dolphins

  325. cmurda Says:

    Another suspect call. McClain literally didn’t touch him

  326. Steven007 Says:

    Season, are you paying GMC’s salary? It’s not your money dude. We could have signed Calais Campbell if we wanted. We are in good cap shape. Is he playing like a 16 million dollar man? No. But he’s not a liability. He still our best defensive lineman by far. I just don’t understand the money thing.

  327. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LMFFAO! You can’t make this stuff up!

  328. Rojas Says:

    McClain is getting killed my Landry. I would say put VH3 in but.. idk lol won’t hurt to try he’s played well in the slot this year.

  329. ElioT Says:

    Awesome! Let’s make it a game boys!

  330. Bird Says:

    Just realized matt Moore in

    Not good. We don’t do well against back ups

  331. ElioT Says:

    Only in Tampa folks.

  332. cmurda Says:

    Rojas, VH3 is out. Inactive.

  333. Bayers Says:

    Go bucs and free jameis

  334. Steven007 Says:

    Train, context once again. You ignored my entire comment and fixated on the Lovie quote which many posters and even Joe uses as a kind of joke. And no I didn’t think you deserve one more year. Ffs

  335. Steven007 Says:


  336. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    LOL @ America’s Groper!!!

  337. MadMax Says:

    ^ I cracked up too

  338. MadMax Says:

    Another great throw Fitz!

  339. ATrain Says:

    I did fail to see the big tackle for 6 yrd Loss

    Looked for this 6yrd loss tackle didn’t see it

    He is credited with one whole tackle

  340. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    WOW….here come the rash of 3 and outs

  341. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    20-17 after 80 yard scoring drive. Reverse MOJO?????

  342. Sydney Says:





  343. Defense Rules Says:

    OLine blocking keeps looking worse and worse.

  344. BucEmUp Says:

    Get ready for Smiths defense to go soft and give the game away

  345. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    We have to hold them at 3rd and 14 from deep in their own territory.

    This is a make or break play for out Defense

  346. Sydney Says:


  347. King C Says:

    Adam Gase looks like he’d rather be somewhere else.

    Geez Bucs better not lose

  348. Sydney Says:

    “StPeteBucsFan Says:
    November 19th, 2017 at 3:10 pm
    We have to hold them at 3rd and 14 from deep in their own territory.

    This is a make or break play for out Defense”


  349. Defense Rules Says:

    Yet another long completion. I’m wondering if the Bucs’ secondary realizes that the receivers in the white & aqua uniforms are the bad guys.

  350. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  351. jugheadfla Says:

    would be nice to see a blitz here or there

  352. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Yeah so what else is new…we break….we had pressure on Cutler and give Moore all freaking day…what is up with this team? 3rd and 14 and can’t hold…we do not deserve to win and I don’t want to hear squat about his defense if we win or lose. 3rd and 14 from their 20…game in the balance and we give up 50….

    If this was rare…I could accept it…but it’s been going on for the ENTIRE YEAR!!!

    Teams get behind the sticks 3 and long and they have us just where they want us….we cannot stop a 3rd and forever!!!

  353. William Walls Says:

    So, who missed GMC’s tackle for loss in the first quarter that destroyed the Dolphins drive? And who missed that the reason GMC got poked in tbe eye is because a Miami O-lineman found himself one-on-one on GMC and was getting blown up and that was the only way to keep GMC out of the backfield? Stuff like that has been haplening ALL GAME LONG today.

    Some of y’all are a disturbing combination of being ignorant of what you’re watching, hyper-judgmental regarding what you don’t understand, and then so mentally clouded by your self-imposed bias that you convince yourselves that you didn’t see what happened right in front of your eyes, close up, on your own television.

    That’s just shameful.

  354. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    What happens when you play that prevent defense crap

  355. Rojas Says:

    Wish cutler was still in.. the backups always get us.

  356. Wesley Says:

    Pass coverage is pathetic!

  357. BucfaninMi Says:

    Back up QB, we’re done!

  358. Swanee Says:

    May Moore is an outstanding passer. We are in trouble now. Can’t believe Dolphins are that stupid to start Cutler.

  359. MadMax Says:

    Come on D dammmmit

  360. unbelievable Says:

    Ugh. This is just pathetic.

    VH3 > McClain

    McCoy and Ayers loo like they’re ready for a nap all of the sudden. Man, this team…

  361. Destinjohnny Says:

    I would have never gotten rid of JJ Wilcox
    Also I said it on draft day asj better be awesome cause being able to get Jarvis laundry with a 2 is a steal

  362. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    3rd and long…the Dolphins have us just where they want us!!!

  363. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Matt Moore will get DESTROYED next week when they start him.

  364. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    3rd and even longer….that’s great news for the Dolphins against our D.

  365. Rojas Says:

    Didn’t realize he was inactive. Ok so Javion Elliot can’t be worse

  366. unbelievable Says:

    Offense better score.

    Bucs need to be ready for an onside kick.

    We would be up 14 right now if it weren’t for penalties… smdh

  367. Bayers Says:

    Mike needs to step up

  368. Steven007 Says:

    Got to love these Innovative play calls…

  369. Quattrolou Says:

    Let’s het super conservative right now

  370. jugheadfla Says:

    just sad that we can’t run the ball at all, terrible

  371. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Have we EVER defeated Matt Moore?

  372. The Anomaly Says:

    Momentum all in Phins favor

  373. Sydney Says:


  374. cmurda Says:

    At this point I wonder if Dirk even cares about his job.

  375. jugheadfla Says:

    Miami the worst offense in the league? please…..

  376. unbelievable Says:

    So we’re back to having no offense. Cool.

  377. Defense Rules Says:

    Crappy play-calling, crappy OLine blocking = Punt. Koetter’s conservative ways will cost us this game yet.

  378. passthebuc Says:

    what the f…k was that play calling called???????????????

  379. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Why is Dirk calling plays like it is 4th quarter with 4 minutes left? They need to stay aggressive. So freaking disappointing. Where is the creativity we saw in the first half?

  380. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    22-20 Dolphins Win….final!

  381. Don P Says:

    Tampa Bay’s last two series have been absolutely horrible play calling the defense knows what we’re running and we need to start mixing it up a little bit this is absolutely ridiculous

  382. Rrsrq Says:

    What was that series

  383. Bucs68 Says:

    I’m confused. The Dolphins have 4 turnovers and 13 penalties and it’s a one possession game? I am reading the above and it reads like Fitz is playing like Montana and needs to start over Winston. With such great QB play and a 4 turnover advantage why are we in danger of losing?

  384. Bucnut2 Says:

    The offense is offensive

  385. King C Says:

    I don’t understand that play call to Humphries in the backfield when u have ME, Djax, Brate and OJ on the team

  386. America's Groper Says:

    All that money spent on this team and all we get is a $hi-show for the second week in a row. this team is no better than 5 years ago. Dang this is hard to watch. Bet Team Glazier is wondering the same thing.

  387. Rojas Says:

    Koetter play calling = terrible.. we’re up 20-7 so let me play it safe.. run, run, screen.. an just like that it’s 20-13 with the momentum in Miami’s favor

  388. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Is Brate playing today?

  389. Steven007 Says:

    The season is obviously lost. Why Koetter is not calling a more aggressive game with his job literally on the line I’ll never know.

  390. Wesley Says:

    If I were Miami I’d throw deep every down.

  391. unbelievable Says:

    we’ve just lost all momentum after those last 2 drives.

    Defense gonna have to step up again…

  392. JourneyRVrental Says:

    I’ve seen enough of Dirk’s play calling to say we definitely need change there. I don’t believe that you’re playcalling is tied to whether you’re the head coach calling plays or just the OC. Either way, his creativity and trying to keep the other team on their toes are both gone.

  393. Quattrolou Says:

    Great use of time outs

  394. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    20-16 coming up

  395. unbelievable Says:

    Yup, I really hope we hire a real OC this offseason.

  396. jugheadfla Says:

    that pass rush is fierce…….moore standing in the end zone for 5 minutes

  397. Steven007 Says:

    With our current record and our weapons we should be the dangerous team that no one wants to play. Instead we’re calling an offensive game like we’re protecting a 3 score lead and we have an eight and one record. Unbelievable.

  398. Swanee Says:

    @jughead. Yes Miami is ranked 32nd in offense in the league. Avg 15 points a game. You’re correct.

  399. cmurda Says:

    3rd and long. Might as well just give the opposition a first down. Embarrassing defense

  400. Wesley Says:

    Third and longs are automatic first downs. What a joke!

  401. Sydney Says:




  402. denjoe Says:

    Bunch of retards trying to hump a door knob!

  403. Rojas Says:

    Offseason needs = Pass rusher, Pass rusher, oline

  404. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Does anybody even play attention to down and distance anymore? Why?

    How many times does the other team convert 3rd and long on us?

    I wish I had a stat that shows how many 1st downs our D has given up when the opponent is 3rd and 8 and longer. It’s just freaking mind boggling…and field position means nothing…we can’t stop in their end…middle of the field or our end.

  405. passthebuc Says:

    it’s a tossup whether the offensive or defensive play-calling is the worst…

  406. jugheadfla Says:

    its pretty simple, they go into zone on every 3rd and long and we have no pass….why not blitz?

  407. BUC MAN Says:


  408. Rrsrq Says:

    Defense is allergic to three and out… Offense loves them

  409. RustyRhinos Says:

    Do we not know how to use PRESS coverage?

  410. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Crappy offense

    Crappy secondary

    Crappy play calling

    This is just one crappy team

    Wtf am I watching this????

  411. Wesley Says:

    Silver lining: this game means nothing.

  412. passthebuc Says:

    you have them backed up on the 1-yard line and no blitz on 3rd down.
    one might think the Bucs coaching staff have money on this game

  413. unbelievable Says:

    lol rrsrq

  414. Quattrolou Says:

    I bet the Dolphins wish every down was 3rd down and long

  415. MadMax Says:

    Ryan smith hurt

  416. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    They cannot cover these fishes WRs

  417. Sydney Says:



  418. unbelievable Says:

    Do we have the worst 3rd down defense in the league?

    We must.

  419. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Game plan against the bucs

    —‘—-”wait til 3rd and long to convert

  420. Swanee Says:

    @ st pete buc fan. Yes. Bucs defense is 32nd (last) in the league on 3rd Down conversion. Bucs give up 46 percent of first downs on third down. Basically that stat says they are really really Awful. This defensive coordinator will be gone at end of this season.

  421. Architek Says:

    Look at it like this – the more they implode the better chances this staff is gone.

  422. jugheadfla Says:

    nice bull rush by GMC there

  423. Zhills Says:

    Wtf can changing the quarterback really make that much difference???

  424. Wesley Says:

    What? A third and long stop?

  425. EasyTheGreat Says:

    McCoy is feasting today.

  426. Steven007 Says:

    Nice series by that scrub GMC.

  427. William Walls Says:

    Another great play by McCoy.

  428. Quattrolou Says:

    McCoy is playing well today. Named called a lot.

  429. King C Says:

    Gerald McCoy singlehandedly stopped the drive

  430. unbelievable Says:

    trolltrain must be drunk by now

  431. SB Says:

    GMC is Balling out!!!
    Where is Tmaxi?

  432. Matt B Says:

    McCoy haters STFU

  433. cmurda Says:

    McCoy is playing well. I feel Ryan Smith has played pretty well too. The defense would be playing fairly well if not for way too many huge plays especially on 3rd down

  434. Sydney Says:





  435. SB Says:


  436. Bird Says:

    Man. The pass rush is not existent

    Seems like Moore has 10 seconds back there

    Luckily McCoy made play but geez. It’s bad.

  437. Bayers Says:

    Play more aggressive get back into the game play in shotgun formation

  438. SB Says:

    You can erase that one Joe. I was talking about the McCoy playing well comment

  439. jugheadfla Says:

    chit….this won’t be good

  440. ATrain Says:

    McCoy finally showed up

    Must have been looking at the blog

  441. The Anomaly Says:

    We have turtled

  442. Destinjohnny Says:

    D jack time

  443. ATrain Says:

    That should be all day though

  444. jugheadfla Says:


  445. Bird Says:

    Yah boy

    That’s my dog

  446. Wesley Says:

    Keep throwing to Mike for God’s sake.

  447. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    The thing I just don’t understand about Dirk Koetter 2017, is that he just flat out will not ever stick with, or go back to what works.

    Chris Godwin played well last week, haven’t seen him on the field all day.

    O.J. starts the game red hot, hasn’t been thrown the ball since the 2nd Qtr.

    Wtf Dirk?

  448. The Anomaly Says:

    Total push off

  449. Bird Says:

    Adrian Peterson next year?

  450. ATrain Says:

    But unlike some

    I will call it out when Great Plays are made

  451. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I used to be a huge Koetter fan but this is getting stoooopid!!!

    Dirk…we CAN NOT RUN THE BALL at this point in the game. Dink and dunk if you’re afraid to throw it long but stop running it up the gut!!!

  452. unbelievable Says:

    Why didn’t Martin block both defenders and run for 8 yards? Gee what a bum.

  453. Bird Says:


  454. America's Groper Says:

    Doug Martin has no legs and no game. He completely stops at the line of scrimmage. Cant they see that? Put in Barber

  455. cmurda Says:

    These calls are beyond suspect.

  456. EasyTheGreat Says:

    BS call on Dotson

  457. Defense Rules Says:

    Congrats OLine, you screwed us again.

  458. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    This is the worst officiated game I’ve seen this year…fortunately the calls have been really horrible against Miami as well as us. The Zebras are just awful today.

  459. Swanee Says:

    get rid of this line and draft some disciplined lineman in 2018.

  460. Bird Says:

    This is painful to watch

  461. unbelievable Says:

    Bad call- But penalties on both tackles, negating a big play.

    Where have I seen this before?

  462. ElioT Says:

    F**k this team!

  463. cmurda Says:

    LOL @ JW haters and Fitz lovers. Dude is terrible unless a guy is wide open.

  464. Quattrolou Says:

    Are you kidding me

  465. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    It just got worse DR…OL gives up a safety and they were freaking rushing THREE!!!!

  466. jugheadfla Says:

    phuck these refs

  467. unbelievable Says:

    We got the worst team of refs in the league today obviously.

  468. Steven007 Says:

    Train, credit for not hiding from the obvious. Most of the other GMC trolls put their head in the sand when plays are made.

  469. Wesley Says:

    God I hate football.

  470. Defense Rules Says:

    YGBSM. Can’t believe how really bad our OLine is today. That’s embarrassing.

  471. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Fire Koetter immediately.

  472. cmurda Says:

    That’s a safety. If DK manages to blow this game, he might not last until the end of the season

  473. Rrsrq Says:

    Sweezy is GARBAGE

  474. Steven007 Says:

    Did anyone not see a safety or near safety there? It seemed like a foregone conclusion.

  475. denjoe Says:

    A Bunch of retards trying to hump a door knob!

  476. Swanee Says:

    Geez. I hope it’s a safety. Do not want to give Miami the ball on their own 40 or on the 50…..

  477. Quattrolou Says:

    Maybe Gruden can take over after the ring of honor ceremony.

  478. Destinjohnny Says:

    Hate to say it but on draft day we will be glad we lost
    We aren’t even close to having a good team
    We need impact players

  479. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    You could say that about almost any QB in the league. But why is Fitz seeing wide open players and #3 is always threading a needle. Do our WR’ and TE’s simply not get open for #3?

  480. unbelievable Says:

    I’m done with Dotson.

    Put in Benenoch, Pamphile, anyone.

  481. Curse of Gruden Says:


  482. Quattrolou Says:

    We just got a break

  483. Steven007 Says:

    There is no precedent for that cmurda but with everything else that’s going on in and around the club that wouldn’t Shock Me if the wheels truly come off.

  484. Matt B Says:

    Offensive lines was offensive this “drive”

  485. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Pereira is usually wrong. This time he was right.

  486. MadMax Says:

    DEF need to replace Dotson!

  487. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    So was that break? Saves two points but we’re going to get horrid field position.

  488. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Dat sheit wuz a safety!!!!!

  489. Sydney Says:




  490. Bird Says:

    Which games Is worse.???

    Bucs jets

    Bucs Dolphins.

    I mean this is really bad

  491. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Good break on the holding but the Zebras have ruined what is already a horribly sorry football game.

    When was the last time we’ve seen NFL quality football as Buc’s fans. I’m not just talking about the Bucs…the Dolphins have sucked big time…like the Jets last week. This is just BORING FOOTBALL!!!

  492. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    The NFL is twenty years in debt to the Bucs on bad calls. I never feel guilty getting one in our favor.

  493. Bayers Says:

    I can’t believe my eyes

  494. King C Says:

    4 turnovers by the Dolphins and they commit 14 + penalties

    Are the Bucs gonna blow this or is there a 5th turnover to come?

  495. ElioT Says:

    This is a 4 yard dumpster full of bulls*it!!

    F**k this team!!!

  496. lurker Says:

    wow, dolphins were robbed.

    shoulda been a butt safety on the 5th year anniversary of the butt fumble!

  497. Rrsrq Says:

    Conservative K, Licht has given this team no depth, Mike Smith is consistent in never knowing what you are going to get except zone of 3rd & long

  498. Bayers Says:

    So many people screaming for Winston head. Lol

  499. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    What game is worst, this week’s or last week’s? Probably last week’s unless we lose this one after getting 4 turnovers.

  500. RustyRhinos Says:

    Can we finally say our Oline coach is not very good?

  501. ATrain Says:

    We need to Defense to punch them in the Mouth

  502. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This bucs team is pure garbage

  503. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Why not both? I wouldn’t be shocked if a half a dozen coaches are gone next year…more of course if Koetter goes.

    Who is our DB coach and why do our DB’s always look like it’s a Chinese Fire Drill back there.

  504. Bird Says:

    Lavonte and grimes.


  505. mark2001 Says:

    I’m not a Jameis hater. But pointing out that he has missed far too many open guys this year and forced too many balls. And who said he was not as good as an “also ran” on his umpteenth team? Not me. Just said that he can learn from Fitz.

  506. ATrain Says:

    Kwon is the Man

    Let’s Go

  507. NJBucsFan Says:

    I feel a loss coming. Back up QBs are our nemesis.

    It’s pathetic we can’t score more than 20 against this team

  508. MadMax Says:

    GJ KWON!!!

  509. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    This is a risky play for the Dolphins…if it was 4th and 10 they would have us where they want us!!!

  510. ATrain Says:

    No Way

  511. ElioT Says:

    Sorry you bunch of Winston homers!!!!

    Don’t see a big difference between the “franchise” and Fitz.

  512. jugheadfla Says:

    no way he got a yard there

  513. Bird Says:

    Wooooooooooooo. Yah

  514. Steven007 Says:

    Fatty Baker may have made his first real play all year.

  515. Swanee Says:

    Excellent run defense TB.

  516. MadMax Says:

    GJ D on that 4th!!!!!!!!

  517. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    If we can’t move this ball and get an FG to seal this game we don’t deserve to win anyway. The game is ours for the taking. Will we take it?

  518. ElioT Says:

    There had been ZERO difference between the dumba** Winston and Fitz.

  519. King C Says:

    Thats kind of like a turnover

  520. denjoe Says:


  521. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Now Fitz is gonna fumble or throw an INT

  522. jugheadfla Says:

    that sun though…..

  523. ElioT Says:

    Flag is down

  524. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Stop running Dougie fresh…..it ain’t working dirk

  525. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Please let’s NOT go 3 and out

  526. Bird Says:

    Ah yah.

    Better lucky than good?

  527. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Thank you Suh!!!! Great play moron!!!

  528. Steven007 Says:

    Nice penalty on Suh. I think it’s safe to say who had the better game of the Marquee defensive tackles.

  529. jugheadfla Says:

    just pick a hole and run straight dougie….geez

  530. unbelievable Says:

    well thanksuh very much

  531. ATrain Says:

    What happened to throwing it to OJ

  532. ElioT Says:

    This team f**king sucks. Sorry…

    It is what it is…

  533. Quattrolou Says:

    17 penalties 4 turnovers and they are still In it. Unreal.

  534. Zhills Says:

    How many flags the refs gonna throw today

  535. Bird Says:

    Yah. Doug Martin needs to sit.

    He doesn’t have any holes but dang.

  536. King C Says:

    om my god how many times the same horrible pitch play

  537. Steven007 Says:

    Why aren’t we throwing any safe screen passes?

  538. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Terrible play calling

  539. cmurda Says:

    A good coach would get the first down here and stop worrying about killing clock. There’s still plenty of time in this game. Dirk is too soft. Fitz is soft too. Make that throw dude.

  540. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    That does it. I’ve officially joined the crowd who thinks Koetter picks his nose better than he picks plays. What the F is wrong with him? He wants the Dolphins to lose this game to us…why can’t he play to freaking win?

    He has called a horrible…horrible second half. If we lose a lot is on Koetter.

  541. Zhills Says:

    How many flags the refs gonna throw

  542. ElioT Says:

    Thanks Mike!!!!

    Elite WR my f**king a**!!!!

  543. Season Is Over Says:

    The team is well on the way to the 15th pick. The good pass rushers will still be there.

  544. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Dougie can’t Follow his blocker.

  545. buccochris Says:

    IF we lose this…I blame this BS conservative play calling!

  546. America's Groper Says:


  547. unbelievable Says:

    If Dirk stays, he MUST hire an OC who actually calls the plays.

    Calling 1 good game out of every 4 is not acceptable.

  548. denjoe Says:


  549. Sydney Says:




  550. Quattrolou Says:

    That ball was not catchable but I think Mike Evans hands have reverted to 2015.

  551. Not there yet Says:

    This offense stalls every week when they stop using their tight ends but it’s ok Dirk I think this will be your last season as a head coach in the NFL ever, you absolutely suck

  552. Bird Says:

    Our oline is playing about as bad as I’ve seen

  553. jugheadfla Says:

    agreed, at least Barber will run downhill

  554. NJBucsFan Says:

    Another inept drive. No…we don’t need to burn the clock. We will just give the Dolphins as much time as they would like.

  555. Steven007 Says:

    Missed opportunity on that drive. But then what’s new? And yes, what happened to OJ? He’s open pretty much every time we want to pass to him.

  556. Patrick Says:

    Punting: The Bucs favorite play

  557. ElioT Says:

    Mike Evans is turning into the most overated irrelevant WR in the NFL!!!

    Where are you big boy????

  558. mark2001 Says:

    One more time the D has to stop them.

  559. Sweep the leg Says:


    No holes but what?


    No holes nowhere to run. Duh. Not Doug’s fault.

    Peyton Barber sucks.

    Oline sucks. Blame it on them. Pretty obvious.

  560. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    87 frequently points out that it is HARD to be a true Buc’s fan. He’s right!!!

    I’ve finally reached the point where I do not care who coaches here next year.

    I do not think this is on Licht. Injuries played a role for sure but our coaching just sucks!!!!

  561. NJBucsFan Says:

    This is the kind of play that will get Koetter fired.

  562. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Stop giving it to druggie fresh….his slow running ain’t working

  563. Bird Says:

    I like koetter but he is not doing himself any favors

  564. Rrsrq Says:

    Can’t stand this team, but I keep doing it. Short passes are similar to runs, the keep the clock moving but they give you yardage versus our anemic running game, especially when they know you are running

  565. Wombat Says:

    Martino was well worth the activation.

  566. Sweep the leg Says:


    That ball was completely uncatchable.


  567. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Where is OJ? Did he meet his quota or something?

  568. William Walls Says:

    Three run plays in a row because….

  569. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Someone needs to be fired after getting 4 turnovers, 17 penalties on Dolphins. How do we LOSE this game?

  570. mark2001 Says:

    Trollio….honestly man…grow up. The D has played their hearts out today.

  571. THETRUTH Says:

    Why are we still running this outside pitch with martin it is guarantee negative yards
    This play has worked once in 6 games and we still run it
    Litter has to go for stupidity play calling !!!!!

  572. Bird Says:

    The glazers are getting pretty uncomftable right now

  573. Dano74 Says:

    Bucs offense is giving Dolphins a chance. Terrible

  574. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Uh oh…3rd and 10…they have us right where they want us!!!

  575. jugheadfla Says:

    PHUCK ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  576. Season Is Over Says:

    No one saw that coming. Solid D there.

  577. RustyRhinos Says:

    Our Oline coach has been the same since Coach L. Smith was here this is why we do not have a running game as his old team the Browns

  578. Sweep the leg Says:

    Lmao of course they give up the touchdown.

    Why not?

  579. Swanee Says:

    That may do it.

  580. MadMax Says:


  581. ElioT Says:


    Bunch of f**king pi**ies

  582. Bucssuccs Says:

    Let’s hear mike smiths’ excuses again

  583. NJBucsFan Says:

    He may get fired during the season

  584. cmurda Says:

    That’s actually hysterical. Justin Evans. How in the eff do you let him get behind you? We are a pitiful embarrassment and Dirk and Mike Smith might get fired before midnight just for the sake of it.

  585. denjoe Says:

    Thank you Dirk you conservative play calling idiot!

  586. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    This is for our own good.

  587. Tackleblockwin Says:

    The D is exhausted because Dirk took his foot off the pedal. Good job Dirk! Way to outcoach yourself.

  588. Bird Says:


  589. Season Is Over Says:

    Mr. Magoo could have made that pass.

  590. Defense Rules Says:

    So Kenny Stills now has 170 yds receiving. Nice job secondary. Actually, our non-pass rush deserves some of the credit. Moore had F-O-R-E-V-E-R to throw that pass.

  591. Bighck61 Says:

    3rd time we had pinned deep only to give up the big play my god this is a horrible defense

  592. Sydney Says:




  593. unbelievable Says:

    words can not describe how utterly pathetic that is.

    unreal. How do you let a WR get behind the ENTIRE defense at this point in the game? Just pathetic.

    Neither of these teams deserve to win, but especially not the Bucs.

  594. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    3 and out and we will LOSE this game

  595. Quattrolou Says:

    Good thing we stayed conservative the second half. Didn’t want to score or turnover the ball.

  596. Bayers Says:

    Why did they stop using Howard

  597. 911bucs Says:

    One big play after another, time and again smh. These backups absolutely destroy this defense.

  598. Patrick Says:

    Bird Says:
    November 19th, 2017 at 4:05 pm
    The glazers are getting pretty uncomftable right now

    The Glazers have given us 10 years of bad, playoff-less football now since Gruden got fired. What’s new?

  599. Quattrolou Says:

    @ Sydney and 17 penalties

  600. Swanee Says:

    Worst third down team in the NFL. Got to release defensive coach Monday along with several secondary players.

  601. denjoe Says:

    These coaches suck!

  602. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Evans with a horrible rookie mistake!!! How do you let a guy get behind at the end of a seven point game.

    My biggest fear….this game goes to OT and simply makes us all watch even more really, really bad football. I’m starting to see better football on Saturdays!!!

  603. BucFan4Life Says:

    I’ll pack Mike Smith’s bags for him

  604. Destinjohnny Says:

    21 just doesn’t have instincts

  605. unbelievable Says:



    You’ve been saying it would be blowout since 3 min into the 1st quarter. You have zero credibility.

  606. Bayers Says:

    Bucs you can do this

  607. Season Is Over Says:

    You can’t blame McCoy. He was quintupled teamed on that one.

  608. Bighck61 Says:

    Time for pick six by Fitz

  609. mark2001 Says:

    A FG will win this.

  610. Quattrolou Says:

    the old catch and fall by Mike Evans

  611. BucEmUp Says:

    I hate Mike Smith with a deep passion. If Koetter doesnt fire him then fire koetter im done im over this bull shlt fire him. How manythird and longs have they given up in the second half? Im . even if they win Im disgusted with this defense its pathetic. Fire koetter and let him and smith make love in lovie basement

  612. Steven007 Says:

    At this point I’m not sure which outcome I prefer.

  613. BucfaninMi Says:

    We all saw this coming, as soon as Moore stepped on the field.

  614. Bucssuccs Says:

    I wouldn’t touch Mike Smith with a 39 and a half foot pole

  615. MadMax Says:

    Nice throw and catch by Fitz and Godwin…..in the sun too.

  616. passthebuc Says:

    Lets see
    run off tackle

    15 yard gain miami
    20 yard gain
    5 yard
    I don’t know what you call it
    bucs lose

  617. cmurda Says:

    How fitting that it may come down to Murray for a gamewinner.

  618. RustyRhinos Says:

    Again no press coverage WHY NOT?

  619. Bayers Says:

    Why why why we just now using Godwin and why not throw to Howard on 3rd downs

  620. mark2001 Says:

    With the way the “fighting Illini” are playing, there might be an open position at the U of I next year. Talk about pathetic.

  621. Buc813 Says:

    Dirk needs to be fired for this bitch ass play calling man. He’s soft as hell. Offense should’ve been put this game to rest

  622. Season Is Over Says:

    Even Hargreaves wonders why Howard was drafted in the first round.

  623. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    WOW…Godwin IS playing

  624. cmurda Says:

    @Bucemup. I’m done with DK and M Smith. I’ve been done with Smith but these past few games show how much of a weak coach DK is. I’m officially on the Gruden bandwagon.

  625. Not there yet Says:

    This is what happens when you have a soft weak scary play caller who happens to the head coach. All games will be close because he doesn’t have the guts to kick a team when they are down. It’s unbelievable you have d Jack on one side and Mike Evans on the other, two stud tight ends who are also receiving threats but you can’t find a play to get your star receivers the ball against anyone. Please get this talk a coach with balls

  626. Bayers Says:

    Not mike smith fault when the offense never helps the defense out

  627. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Patrick Murray might get a shot here in a second. Holding my breath already. 😶

  628. Quattrolou Says:

    CAN WE GET A LIKE/dislike button for comments.

  629. Bayers Says:

    AS far as I’m concerned defense has done its job

  630. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    They’ve ripped my heart out with this game. I honestly don’t know if I even care if kick a FG and win it. It still feels like a LOSS!!!

  631. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The torch should pass. Godwin is CLEARLY a better receiver than HUMP!

    Put your best players in the game Koetter!!!

  632. Bangkok Buc Says:

    I still can’t fathom with all this talent we still have so many holes.
    We should be blowing Miami away. They are terrible

  633. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    If they lose this game, I’ll be on the Jim Mora Jr. bandwagon!!!!!

  634. Bayers Says:

    Chris Godwin

  635. Bird Says:

    Oh the drama

  636. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    @Season is over

    O.J. was giving everyone that reason in the first Qtr, and then Dirk decided he didn’t want to do what was working anymore.

    Get a coach in here who actually will use him.

  637. denjoe Says:

    Hump just lost his job!

  638. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Time to move Fitz around…maybe roll him but let him freaking run it! If he rolls and there’s an open receiver fine…if not I trust Fitz’s running ability more than turning to hand off to a RB.

  639. Swanee Says:

    Our coaching staff is awful. Pathetic and terrible assessing talent. CHRIS GODWIN should of been playing all game. He is our best Wide receiver.

  640. THETRUTH Says:

    Humphrey terrible

    Why play for FG go for TD we will lose if play for FG

  641. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Hump should be in the bench. Godwin has replaced him!!!!

  642. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Come on! Let’s eat a W!

  643. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    That’s the difference between a top RB and Martin…at least half the RB’s in this league would have enough speed to make that corner at least for 5 or 6 yards.

  644. Buc Bobby Says:

    Let them score quick – then run down the clock

  645. Season Is Over Says:

    Six behind NO and six to go. I’m feeling it. Playoffs!

  646. cmurda Says:

    Have to make this Murray otherwise we are all going stir crazy. Let us win this gross game.

  647. Curse of Gruden Says:

    We’re going all the way this year. On the foot of Murray!

  648. Swanee Says:

    Murray will win this one for us. But after what I’ve seen. Fire coach K. I would not wait till end of season. Godwin is your number 1 receiver.

  649. Bayers Says:

    Oh the drama lol

  650. lurker Says:

    why do we always play to not lose?

  651. Rob Says:

    Mike Smith should be $hit canned for this pathetic defense he assembled. 50% conversions on 3rd down for the Fins. Most 10-50 yard completions. Good grief. Let’s see if Murray can salvage the win . Sigh

  652. BuccoDav Says:

    Never a doubt!

  653. Bird Says:

    Center mag

  654. Blake_Bucsfan Says:

    Welp, time to F*** up our draft position again.

  655. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Do we think our D can hold a 3 point lead with 4 seconds on the clock?

    It’s a fair question!!!

  656. Steven007 Says:

    2 game winning streak. I smell playoffs. Haha

  657. BucfaninMi Says:

    Even if they win, it still feels like they lost.

  658. lurker Says:

    2 wins vs 2 crappy teams

  659. unbelievable Says:

    well that was one of the most painful wins I can remember

  660. Season Is Over Says:

    I feel like we have turned the corner.

  661. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Lmao StPete

  662. Tackleblockwin Says:


  663. Bird Says:

    Agree with st Pete

    BFD, should have curb-stomped these f**kers!

    You let Moore slice your ass*s up.

    This team is a bag of d**ks.

  665. Steven007 Says:

    And an insurance touchdown, haha. What a joke!

  666. Season Is Over Says:

    Nothing like “we were done by Halloween” group celebrations.

  667. Curse of Gruden Says:

  672. cmurda Says:

    Alright. We got it. I’m always happy for a win. I feel no differently about wanting a new coaching staff.

  673. Rob Says:

    The Bucs with a blow out 10 point win! Go yucks I mean Bucs! Take the UGLY win

  674. Bangkok Buc Says:

    New our offence could do it

  675. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Good one St. Pete.



  677. Season Is Over Says:

    Koetter saves his job and gives us horrible draft pick. It couldn’t have gone better.

  678. Bighck61 Says:

    Enjoy this win cause it’s the last one this year

  679. Buc Bobby Says:

    Yep – we did it

  680. FR Says:

    Player are gonna lose confidence in Winston watch

  681. Defense Rules Says:

    Well, 2-0 with Fitz at the helm is still 2-0. Ugly ugly win, but … still a win. All it took was for the Dolphins to commit 17 penalties & 4 turnovers. Now we know the key to victory.

  682. denjoe Says:

    They gave it to us but we’ll take it!

  683. Buc Bobby Says:

    Gosh never saw so many sore winners lol

  684. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Man I’m very positive…the blog optimist. But I just can’t celebrate this win.

    I’ll calm down I guess…there were positives in the way the young guys played but yeechhh…how many 3rd and longs for a first down?

    At least Fitz is a good backup. He’s not going to win games for us but he’s not going to lose them either. And I suspect we won’t be reading about sex allegations made against him by women…wonder why? He’s famous and wealthy why don’t the “gold diggers” stalk him…or any other player on this roster besides ONE?
