Buccaneers-Saints, Open Thread

December 31st, 2017

Last call for 2017

Let’s go Bucs … unless you want a better 2018 draft pick.

Comment here all game long as your Buccaneers look to snap a five-game losing streak against the hungry Saints.

Will the defense dare to play will in two consecutive games? They must if for the Bucs to have a prayer.

Play nice. Have fun. Stick with Joe for plenty after the game, live from the locker room, Ira Kaufman‘s 10 takeaways, and more.

  1. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Team Glazer’s decision only days before this game to keep Koetter is a message to him and the rest of the team that it is “safe” to tank it in order to get a higher draft pick. I am probably wrong and hope so. #PaidFloridaVacation #GlazerLootIsTheBest

  2. Bucssuccs Says:

    Okay, here’s my plan. If the Raiders hire Gruden, the. We should demote Monken to WR coach and hire Del Rio as our OC

  3. Lakeland Says:

    The had nothing to lose last season, when they beat the Bucs, to damper their playoffs hopes

    The Bucs should return the favor, and hope to end their hopes of winning the division.

    That’s better than trying to lose and go winless in your division.

  4. Lakeland Says:

    The Saints had nothing to lose last season

  5. Dan Says:

    0 chance of winning with this bunch of coaches

  6. SB Says:

    The Bucs will win this game and mess up our draft position

  7. Buc believer Says:

    Whoop Dee Friggen Doo!!! And to think next year we will have more of the same. Can’t wait.

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    Please Lose Bucs. Lets keep the 5th pick in the draft. But with our luck? We will win. Watch and see. So sad guys. Here it is almost playoff time and we are celebrating Koetter and Smitty return for next year. While other teams are preparing, trying to get to the superbowl, We…its just Deeyahm right Pityfull. Guess I’ll root for them JAG-WARS this year. At least they are from Florida.

  9. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if the Bucs do something stupid and win this game and screw up their draft position. They need all the help they can get and a lower draft spot doesn’t help in any way at all.

  10. mark2001 Says:

    Oh man…sounds like Dom Capers is finally getting the boot in Green Bay. There is a guy even worse that Smith, for all you guys looking for a D savior to replace Smith. Maybe he is looking for a nice Florida retirement.

  11. Bird Says:

    Del rio is a defensive guy.

    He would not know what to do with playcalling on offense.

  12. Bird Says:

    Dang Texans lost.

    So 5 would be best

  13. JMarkBuc Says:

    Well last hurrah for a lost Season, I prefer to win. The draft is a crapshoot anyway

    We all agree that we want a winner. We just disagree on how to get there. Makes for some fun reading though😅

    Happy New Year to the Buc Fans. Maybe this is our year.

  14. MadMax Says:

    I’d rather have Dom Capers rug on his head than him….couldnt do much worse!

  15. mark2001 Says:

    But don’t worry Bird…. if we win, it will make no difference. They would be in front of us anyway.

  16. SB Says:

    Lol at the people, Joes included, at us losing to “Case Freakin’ Keenum” Dude has won 10 of his last 11 games!

  17. SB Says:

    Supposed to be …..laughing at us
    Dam Jim Beam!

  18. Pa Privateer Says:

    Honestly I just want to see Barber carry the ball well, Godwin get some catches, Auclair get some catches, and see other young players growing.


    Have no problem using this game to measure the young players on the team heading into the offseason

  19. MadMax Says:

    So #5 if we lose hmmm, that means Chubb, Barkley or Fitzpatrick will probably be there…..or we could trade down and land Nelson and maybe trade back up for Vita Vea.

  20. Weezelteets Says:

    Today is like a merciful round of euthanasia.

  21. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Oh no here we go!!! Happy Friggin New Year. Bucs don’t have a chance today unless Saints bench their first stringers and then it might be close!!!! Can’t wait for Irk and the Bucs in 18!!!!

  22. mark2001 Says:

    Or if we win Max, just another draft day, somewhere around 10.

  23. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I think the tanking days have passed us by. Best case scenario is a move up to 3rd..worst case we drop to 9th…most likely we draft in our current position 5th.
    It’s not a big deal like drafting first which allows you to pick any individual player.

    As for tanking for any reason…nah….I think a rousing win…35-28…#3 finishes with his first turnover free game in forever…hits DJAX..ME13 and OJ for TD’s.

    Defense plays just good enough against the talented Saints to allow our offense to finally hold on to a win!!!!!

    We need numbers in the trenches. If a QB desperate team or another team needing our spot wanted to sweeten the pot with extra picks I’d certainly listen.

  24. Pa Privateer Says:

    I know we need DL help, but if Chubb isn’t there in the draft, I would love to see Barkley.

    play the young guys ad secure that #5 pick

  25. SB Says:

    Howdy SPBF! Hope you and yours have a Happy New Year!
    All is good here.
    I asked Joe if the Bucs win today could I have my original username back. No response yet. 🙂

  26. NFLNut Says:



    The Browns will likely now either take SAM DARNOLD at #1 and SAQUON BARKLEY at #4, or, and maybe more likely, Saquon #1 and the best QB available (probably Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield) at #4.

    Either way, I expect the pick to now be Bradley Chubb, and if the Colts take him at #3, I expect us to TRADE DOWN with a QB hungry team and maybe take Arden Key or Clellin Ferrel … in short, I’d be shocked if we drafted anything other than a DE with our #1 pick.

  28. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m rooting for a win….a stomp if possible…..and knowing if we don’t the draft is better…..either way, I’ll be happy today.

    I just can’t root against my Bucs especially against a division opponent.

    This is not a meaningless game for the Saints….or many of the Buc players…..it’s not meaningless to Carolina either.

  29. Bucs14 Says:

    My prediction: offense will play well enough to win, Jameis will put up big numbers; defense will tank it as usual, losing us the game in the 4th. It’s a Buc’s life.

  30. Lakeland Says:

    The Saints didn’t tank last season when they beat the Bucs in week 16. They came into the game hoping to knock the Bucs out of the playoffs. They beat the Bucs, dropped in the draft and still had one of the best drafts during the past 20 years.

  31. DoNUTS Says:

    I dont see the Bucs scoring more than 10 points today.

    Saints 31 Bucs 10

  32. SB Says:

    TBBF the voice of reason as always!
    Happy New Year friend.

  33. Bigmo Says:

    At the game… the pregame music has changed. Really different vibe today. They even played a different black eyed peas song. I have a good/bad feeling we are winning today

  34. Bucs14 Says:

    Peyton Barber looks great!

  35. SB Says:

    I haven’t seen DM run like PB just did in a few years!

  36. SB Says:

    Stupid throw by JW

  37. Lakeland Says:

    Julio Jones just took a huge shot from S Mike Adams

  38. BringBucsBack Says:

    Three years ago in our meaningless finale against the Aints, I was yelling, “suck for the duck” at the tele.

    What should I be shouting today?
    “Be a scrubb to get a Chubb?”
    “Suck starkly for Barkley?”

  39. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Well Houston flucked us over. It’s not like they were tanking either. They owe that pick to the browns. The browns run the draft with the #1 and #4 picks

  40. DoNUTS Says:

    Ball late….cmon #3…so sick of that.

  41. Bucnut2 Says:

    Winston is doing his best to try to throw picks, Saints can’t catch.

  42. SB Says:

    Jameis better settle down. Two shoulda been INTs on a first drive that is not good. He shows Brilliance right next to Ignorance.

  43. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God I pray we don’t win today lol

  44. DoNUTS Says:

    No way Doug Martin pushes the pile like that.

  45. Bucnut2 Says:

    Jamies has steeled down. Throwing picks is who he is

  46. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Even at 4 we might miss out on Chubb.

  47. Bird Says:

    Great drive

  48. DoNUTS Says:

    What was that rare sighting??? Another FIRST Q TD!!

  49. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Go troll somewhere else.

  50. Bucs14 Says:

    Let the shootout begin! Like I said, offense will play well today while the defense tanks it. Ice Cream 93 and Fatty Baker going to stink it up today.

  51. Lakeland Says:

    The Saints and Carolina down 7-0

  52. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Whoa!!! We might have a chance today!!! We scored 7 instead of 3 on our first drive!!!

  53. Bucssuccs Says:

    Mr. Magoo almost with 2 ints on the drive

  54. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  55. SB Says:

    Guys, hear me now, believe me later……..Christian Wilkins!! Combine blown.

  56. Swanee Says:

    Only the Bucs.

  57. Bucssuccs Says:

    Kamara with a KR TD. Ha! This coverage is terrible

  58. Gencoimports Says:

    I hope the Glazers told Koetter to fire the ST coach. What a disgrace

  59. Bird Says:


  60. ATrain Says:

    That’s one way to keep the defense off of the field

  61. Lakeland Says:

    There goes the Offensive ROY

  62. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Fire the whole coaching staff!!!!

  63. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Whoa maybe not.

  64. Sweeptheleg Says:

    What a disgrace

  65. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    And they want to keep this bum staff? Lol Glazers please sell the bucs

  66. MDFree Says:

    Lol wow. 2 returns in 2 weeks back to back allowed by this coverage unit 🤦🏻‍♂️

  67. Mike in LOL Says:

    man our special teams suck all around

  68. Bird Says:

    We have to face him for the next 10 years potentially

  69. mark2001 Says:

    Lakeland…some teams draft better than others. As if we didn’t know that.

  70. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Whew…come on #5 draft pick….lol Can’t MAKE this stuff up

  71. Matts17 Says:

    Nice to know that every single phase of this team is garbage. When Smith is cleaning out his office, please take the special teams coach with him.

  72. Chris Says:

    Thats a good plan to keep Brees off the field. No way he breaks the completion record .

  73. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  74. SKBucsFan Says:

    At least most of you haven’t used Kamara’s run to plead for a funning back in the 1st round. Although I wouldn’t put it past Licht to do that.
    Defense wins games!!!

  75. Bucnut2 Says:

    There’s that Winston deep ball accuracy

  76. Bird Says:

    Jameis long ball never connects.

  77. mark2001 Says:

    And some teams are better than others at pulling defeat out of the jaws of victory.

  78. SB Says:

    Seriously……….Do any of you have DVRs? The Blocks in the backs that weren’t called were Heinous.

  79. Bucnut2 Says:

    SB- stop whining!!It’s weak.

  80. Swanee Says:

    Another losing season in 2018. Glazers seem to be content with that. Guess people are renewing their season tickets prior to the owners making their decision….

  81. SKBucsFan Says:

    Lol. Yep there are always questionable blocks. There was a bad one missed last week too.

  82. mark2001 Says:

    Dom Capers fills our bill for D coordinator. A D Coordinator that can find a way to lose games no matter the amount of talent on the other side of the ball.

  83. SB Says:

    Dude……I don’t whine! Just pointing out the obvious. No Way Vegas wants us to win

  84. BUCMAN Says:


  85. Bucssuccs Says:

    America’s ATM with another forced turnover!

  86. Matts17 Says:

    There’s the JW we all know and love.

  87. EA Says:

    That ball shouldn’t have been thrown Tom Brady

  88. Bucnut2 Says:

    There we go. You have to give it to Winston, he’ll keep coming back to the things that work for him. He’s hit 3 Saints in the hands, one finally caught it

  89. MadMax Says:

    And just like that JW interception……yeah, we’re picking 5th.

  90. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Well Winston’s been trying to throw a pick since the game started 2 almost on the first drive. Love the determination and not giving up.

  91. SB Says:

    LOL Humphries ’bout broke that dudes ankles

  92. ATrain Says:

    Why is Winston throwing into double coverage

    Why is Dirk not stomping the guts out of Private Winston

  93. Easy Says:

    Lol might as well lose now so we can for sure draft Barkley.

  94. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Terrible pick. Just horrible. Once again, Jameis fails to throw ball away when everyone is covered.

  95. SB Says:

    Looked like JW threw that pic on purpose. SMDMFH!!!!!!!!!!!!

  96. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    The Vinny Testaverde comparisons are inevitable.

  97. Bucnut2 Says:

    Wow- there were ONLY 3 Saints in the area.

  98. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    When he doesn’t get his feet set, that happens. Bucnut dude you have issues. You son are annoying. Go Bucs! Go Winston!

  99. Sweeptheleg Says:

    What a horrible decision. Prolly the defenses fault or o line or running back. But definitely not Winston’s fault.

  100. buccadawg Says:

    106 yds delayed ko return for saints td. How do you spell sucks BUCS,BUCS, BUCS.!!!! And former fus great turned bucs savior throws his first pic of the day before i finished post. I’m done ,this is not football on any level. Go Browns!!!!

  101. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Yes the party started early over here!!! Actually just early senility.

    I do not know where #3 was throwing that ball. ME13 was TRIPLE covered!!! There had to be somebody open somewhere.

  102. Bird Says:

    Unfortunately it just seems like he will never stop turning over the ball

    Please stop the Brett Favre comparisons.

  103. SB Says:


  104. Quattrolou Says:

    Granted Jameis is sloppy with the ball and Koetter didn’t throw it, but Koetter helping Jameis’ game is a joke. He needs a different coach, because we are Keeping Koetter and this same staff Jameis will never improve. I like Jameis but his downfall will be Koetter.

  105. Dewey Selmon Says:

    A designed roll out with only one read, and he forces it because there are not other WR’s no throw it to. Dirk has to give him more options than that.

  106. Bucnut2 Says:

    That’s what a good deep throw looks like.

  107. Bucssuccs Says:

    See jameis? That’s how you throw long

  108. 2Anglican1609 Says:

    What a PRIZE, 2 almost picks, and 1 pick, and we still have 5 minutes in the first quarter

  109. Sweeptheleg Says:

    My god how is conte still playing in the nfl? Someone please tell me why.

  110. RealityCheck Says:

    JW, that’s how you throw a deep ball.

  111. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LMFFAO! 14-7 coming….come on #5

  112. DoNUTS Says:

    Ive said this a 1000 times…#3 has no ability to recognize the DEF and select the open player – presnap. Coaching!

  113. Bucnut2 Says:

    We need to draft a QB

  114. Bird Says:


  115. Bucnut2 Says:

    WOW!! That was tough.

  116. T Syce Says:

    Hey Joe ur boyfriend just threw yet ANOTHER pick. Tried to throw 2 earlier but the defenders just couldn’t catch em. He’ll have AT LEAST one more TURNOVER today

  117. Chris Says:

    DB55 will blame Evans, Koetter, DJackson, Todd Monken, the ball boy, Buccaneer fans, GMC93, but never Winston. Be consistent on your criticism DB and Tmax.

  118. SB Says:


  119. Zwak Says:

    JW loves to force balls and never looks off safety’s! He’s locked on where he’s going right from the snap 80% of the time..

  120. SB Says:

    LOL Chris…….You have a point

  121. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    Grimes is as soft as cotton. Always was..

  122. Bird Says:

    Glazers should force dirk to fire mike smith

    The big easy looks too easy

  123. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LOL….WOW…just WOW. Is it too late to fire Koetter?

  124. JonBuc Says:

    McCoy pushed out of the way like a shopping cart at WalMart…

  125. 911bucs Says:

    Walk in TD

  126. Lakeland Says:

    Offensive ROY

  127. Chris Says:

    Than he’ll hope Jameis goes somewhere else and wins a super bowl, true fan there.

  128. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Let’s watch Smiths defense stop Drew and the Saints. That Secondary of Conte and Ward looked good on that first series. Why in the hell isn’t Tandy playing? And just like that Saints walk into the End Zone Untouched!!!

  129. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That’s a real Head Coach putting his personnel in a great position to succeed. Something Koetter can’t do. This team is mentally weak and physically soft, just like the owners.

  130. Bucnut2 Says:

    T- you are correct.Both Joe’s have a man crush on ATM.

  131. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Not even out of the first quarter and Kamura has Player of the Week locked up.

  132. mark2001 Says:

    Whew..that was close…back to normal.

  133. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The long bomb to Thomas was frustrating…Conte bit on a Brees fake…how could he have had a call that took his eyes off of Thomas. Either Conte didn’t know his resonsibility or Smitty had a bad defense in there.

    But the seven yard run by Kamara. That’s their front just pushing our front…that’s embarrassing stuff…they just came out and too the Buc’s manhood or what is left of it.

    Could we PLEASE draft some cojones for our DL next year?

  134. Sweeptheleg Says:

    DB55 and Tmax will absolutely deny that Winston even threw that pick.

  135. Bucnut2 Says:

    Chris- Winston is winning anything any where. He just sucks.

  136. ATrain Says:

    Why does our DLine always get pushed down the line

    Why aren’t we sending a LB in the middle my 8 year old knew it was a run

  137. Matts17 Says:

    The entire d allowed themselves to be pushed right out of the way. Pathetic. Seen almost every game since 76, this group is as bad as any of those 80 and early 90 teams.

  138. Stanglassman Says:

    Announcer said Jameis has 16 INT. He has 9 not 16, maybe he was confusing him with mariota.

  139. Bucnut2 Says:

    No WAY that pick was on Winston, it was on Koetter, as his other 2 should have been.

  140. THETRUTH Says:

    JON BUC:

    IS McCoy the only player that has to make play or do the other 10 contribute.
    Team has to show up sometimes, you know that if you played before

  141. buccadawg Says:

    On third down against this def. the key word is easy, TD saints, why not do the flag football thing like announcers who are calling the bucs a touch team. Call the game this bunch needs a mercy rule. They are bad beyond suxs.

  142. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s get ready for 21-7

  143. SCBucsFan Says:

    With Barber and Winston this team will certainly lead the league in turnovers

  144. Matts17 Says:

    Evan Smith is pure trash. He should’ve been cut weeks ago.

  145. SB Says:

    LOOK at that Harvard Man GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  146. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    And the ceremonial 3 and out….LMAO!

  147. Bucnut2 Says:

    JW REALLY good at 3-5 yard throws, VERY accurate

  148. MadMax Says:

    JW3, special teams and D doing their usual and this time im ok with it….helping us get that #5 draft pick.

  149. ATrain Says:

    Put Martin on the BENCh

  150. Bucssuccs Says:

    White boy has JUMPS! Brate is one of the few bright spots on this offense

  151. Sweeptheleg Says:


    Lmao yea cause koetter made Winston throw into triple coverage. Lol not Winston’s fault? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Please stop watching football. Stupid.

  152. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    And Martin for 2 caries, 0 yards….LMAO

  153. SB Says:

    Love your username ‘Sweeptheleg’

  154. Sweeptheleg Says:



  155. THETRUTH Says:

    Should have told dirk if he plays martin again he will be fired. He loves this sucky a$$ RB

  156. Bird Says:

    Sweep the leg

    That’s sarcasm.

  157. Eric Says:

    Man that mofo SUCKS! Gruden will be here after we go 0-16 next year . Unless Jameis does get suspended which will allow us to actually have a chance to win some games whille he is on the bench where he belongs. Gruden will use that top 5 pick to grab a REAL NFL caliber quarterback. How easy it is to see how worthless our quarteback is. If I was Gruden I wouldnt come here if he is the quarterback. He is a coach killer! At this point its actually great entertainment watching him fail week after week and hearing Semen holes make crazy excuses! Lol

  158. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I must be new here. He’s a troll, nothing he says has any merit.
    Don’t feed the trolls

  159. Easy Says:

    Barkley is gonna be an explosive running back for this team

  160. Bucssuccs Says:

    Dirk Koetter ran out of creative plays. Oh well

  161. Aristotle Says:

    Why is Doug Running at all?

  162. SKBucsFan Says:

    I am as frustrated, if not more than most on here about our coaches, GM and QB. However, why are we worried about how they play today? We know we need 11 defensive players and some help on the O-line. I for one have given up a few weeks ago and am just hoping we can get the highest pick possible. Sure I want to see them play well and do just enough to lose. The main focus should be “winning” a high pick.

    Go Bucs, Go Suck!

  163. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Donavan smith just got man handled

  164. ATrain Says:

    Holy crap that stadium is sooo full


    Glaziers sell the team
    The Bucs are a gold mine if someone came in a demanded they earn theirmoney

    @ Da Truth

    It sounds like you bounced 185lbs off your chest during your JV football career. Very few of us can compete with that. Now…there are other players on the field certainly…but none have earned over $100 mil while playing for the Bucs. An observation of a half hearted effort that we’ve seen far too often

  166. brooksforGM Says:

    Koetter lame duck coach next year. This team DID NOT respond to the news well. Ive lost entire faith in the Glazers i hope they sell.

  167. Wisconsinbucsfan Says:

    Defense is just awful. Offense not much better. Another year ……. yahoo…smdh

  168. Bird Says:

    He is not blaming koetter

    The Jameis ball gargalers blame everyone but Jameis when he plays bad or makes stupid decisions.

  169. ElioT Says:

    Wow can’t even get a yard.

    Great opening drive.

    Special Teams bends over.

    Jameis does his thing.

    Defense gets plowed up the butt.

    Dirk Koetter’s genius play calling.

    Can’t wait for 2018

  170. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    Great play call

  171. Easy Says:

    How will most certainly blame this loss on Doug Martin and nothing to do with Winston

  172. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Here comes 21-7. I say it will take 5 plays or less.

  173. JimBuc2 Says:

    Doug Martin please leave town. U Stink!!

  174. Easy Says:


  175. Chris Says:

    Well I’m a Buc fan. It’s why it’s hard to post on here anymore. There’s agendas by a few posters here, it just gets hard to read. Hold some players accountable, like Mccoy, others not because of college affiliation, or other reasons, best not talked about here. Coaching is to blame, players are to.blame. I have no affiliation other than being a Buc fan, for more than 40 years, buts its getting hard to care anymore.

  176. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Oh…and GREAT play call after the time out due to quarter change….LMAO!

  177. BigMacAttack Says:

    Martin sux. Koetter sux. This is a joke

  178. JimBuc2 Says:

    Dirk, REALLY?!! U still think DM22 can help?

  179. SKBucsFan Says:

    Gruden is talking to the Raiders. Apparently Oakland is looking at some sort of ownership deal. It will never be allowed, but that’s how much Mark Davis wants him.

  180. THETRUTH Says:

    1-7 next year when dirk is fired. Running Martin atillnshows he doesn’t learn from mistakes

  181. BigMacAttack Says:

    Koetter back. I’m done with season tickets

  182. BucsFan90 Says:

    Why the fook is Doug Martin getting snaps over Peyton Barber? Klueless Koetter back at it again

  183. Dreambig Says:

    Martin on 3rd down? Really? and my faith in Winston is no more. Don’t hate him yet, but not much of a fan anymore. Fairly sure all mentions of him being like Rogers or Farve will be fewer and fewer. Its going to take him another 2 or 3 years before his brain kicks in and he can take over a game.

  184. BucfaninMi Says:

    With ya Chris

  185. JimBuc2 Says:

    Check, please. I’m leaving to vomit in peace

  186. Dreambig Says:

    Problem with keeping Koetter is you will continue to have stupid play calls like that last one

  187. Chris Says:

    Koetter should be fired for ever playing Doug Martin again.

  188. Tackleblockwin Says:

    We need to draft all DL and OL.

  189. Bucnut2 Says:

    winston about to go 2-13 this year, fitz 2-1. Just saying

  190. DoNUTS Says:

    wide open!

  191. Bucnut2 Says:

    brees just looked like winston

  192. Dreambig Says:

    Bad special teams, bad defense, Winston throwing interceptions and Koetter relying on a guy who routinely gets stuffed behind the line to pick up a first. The future is bright

  193. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Poor Brees, he missed 6 points

  194. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Sucks when Saints traded up over us in the third round to take Kamara. I know the Bucs were planning on taking him there. Joe even called how the Bucs had multiple interviews with him. He would have been the back we needed. Crazy how things work. Go Bucs!

  195. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Koetter should have been fired for the simple fact he promised mike smith a job if he ever got a head coaching gig. So he didn’t pick the best available defensive coordinator he picked him because of a handshake deal.

    That is an absolutely fireable offense.

  196. Bucnut2 Says:

    Bucs need to move on from winston. Lets sign Keenum!

  197. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    If the safeties dont get back were going to get blown out!

  198. Bucnut2 Says:

    evans turning in to a drop machine

  199. SB Says:


  200. Matts17 Says:

    Evans is so F’ing overrated. Most inconsistent hands in the league.

  201. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Mike Evans is starting to suck. Winston finally throws a decent ball more than 5 yards and he can’t catch it.

  202. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    And another drop by Evans

  203. Oxycondoms Says:

    Yeah move on from Winston when his best target keeps dropping passes , ok

  204. Doctor_berto Says:

    Evans has some garbage hands

  205. JimmJack Says:

    Payton barber led us to the end zone on the opening drive and then gets yanked off the field?

  206. Bucnut2 Says:

    can’t waste winston accurate passes, there aren’t that many of them

  207. Bird Says:

    Mike Evans my favorite player.

    But man. He is having a rough year. Help your qb out. Lattimore is laughing at you.

  208. Doc70 Says:

    Another drop by Evans and he quit on the route on Winston’s pick

  209. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Bucnut must be a cheerleader because he sure likes to talk about Jaboo! Go Bucs!

  210. JimmJack Says:

    put Barber back in and they start moving the chains. what is this staff seeing?

  211. JimBuc2 Says:

    Doug Martin, take note: Barber can play, but you are a FRAUD!!!

  212. King C Says:

    Wow what a throw by JW to Rodgers

  213. Capt.Tim Says:

    Man – been anticipating this game for weeks!
    Finally this dog sh*t, waste of time season is over

  214. Bird Says:

    Yah. Koetter looks terrible with Martin in there

  215. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice throw by Winston

  216. Bird Says:

    Throw it in bounds

  217. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Lol all you people hating on Martin.

    I will bet my house that Barbers greatest season will never be as good as martins best seasons. Barber will be lucky to even be the starter next season.

  218. JimBuc2 Says:

    wHOO eee. Mertin out, Barber in. FIRST DOWN!!

  219. Bird Says:

    Barber can run

  220. JimmJack Says:

    passing game works so much better without desean…..for whatever reason it’s a pure fact. Jackson needs to git

  221. Sweeptheleg Says:

    I’m not a Martin defender but Barber will be lucky to be the starter next hear.

    Assuming the Bucs draft a RB

  222. JimmJack Says:

    sweepthdleg……I don’t hate Martin but his career as a feature back is over

  223. SB Says:

    Barber is WAAAAAY better than Martin right now

  224. Bird Says:


  225. Oxycondoms Says:

    Desean and the media were a distraction in demanding the ball be thrown to him another mess up by licht

  226. Easy Says:

    Barkley will take pressure off Winston next year

  227. JimmJack Says:

    I hate the bad decision to keep Martin as their number one back more then I hate martin

  228. SB Says:

    Hey Sweep………..”Heart” can’t be taught! Barber has it! Just lake Larusso did.

  229. Sweeptheleg Says:


    I agree. Martin is done. But people talk about Barber like he’s some kind of game changing back. He’s not. He’s average.

  230. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That’s the JW I Love right there.

  231. Sweeptheleg Says:

    If the Bucs draft barkley then Barber is the back up. That says a lot about Barbers skill.

    I like him but there is nothing special about him. He is easily replaceable.

  232. Easy Says:

    Fire those phuckin cannons!!!

  233. SCBucsFan Says:

    Sweep the leg Barber looks good because Martin is so bad. Can’t hang onto the ball. He isn’t the answer.

  234. Easy Says:


    Barkley is gonna be a beast in the NFL. I know we need pass rushers but you can’t pass on a talent like him.

  235. Capt.Tim Says:

    News flash. The goal of some players is- to do only whats necessary to get a big, set for life contract.
    Then they quit- and retire healthy
    Thats who Doug martin is, and always has been

  236. JimmJack Says:

    nah the best barber can be will be a change of pace back. short yardage back too maybe

  237. Easy Says:

    Lol Murray

  238. Bucnut2 Says:

    Still need a kicker

  239. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Chubb and Barkley will be gone at #5 stop the chatter

  240. ElioT Says:


    Laugh my a** off!

  241. SB Says:

    Sweep……….No way we don’t go for the first DE or DL 3tech available. RB is necessary but NOT as nec as DL

  242. BobbyBucs Says:

    LOL our kicking game

  243. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LMAO….you CANT make this stuff up

  244. Dewey Selmon Says:

    And get a kicker. Joe just posted an article yesterday.

  245. MadMax Says:

    Murray misses!!! wtf! damn man, you just might be replaced too. But Im ok with it only for this game.

  246. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Drafting Barkley would be astronomically stupid. This ENTIRE draft needs to be about the trenches. And free agency needs to be about the secondary. Preferably Malcom butler or Trumaine Johnson

  247. THETRUTH Says:

    Penn state RB SUCK

  248. SKBucsFan Says:

    don’t worry. Licht has his eye on a kicker. Could even be his 1st found pick

  249. MadMax Says:

    #5 pick used on a kicker!!!…..heard it here first HAH!

  250. JimmJack Says:

    Winston should have been running these in for the last two seasons……….maybe our coach is learning after 31 games? also saw baker was on bench. I’m just hoping this guy is starting to get it. some good signs from today

  251. Sean Says:

    Three games in a row missed FG or PAT.

    Two weeks in a row kickoff return for TD given up.

    Horrible Special Teams just one more head scratching reason this incompetent staff coming back

  252. King C Says:

    Don’t even speak that Barkley talk into the universe. We will draft for defense (hopefully Chubb)

    We passed on Adrian Peterson and we’ll pass on Barkley (who’s not as good a prospect IMO)

  253. Zwak Says:

    Another missed FG!!

  254. THETRUTH Says:

    Donavan smith was walking in barber sweep left and he was suppose to be lead block.

    Barber was 1k rusher at auburn and that was sharing time

  255. NFLNut Says:

    MadMax, be happy Murray missed, we need to LOSE this game.

    MikeEvansGOAT … I would have been thrilled with Saquon as I’d take Marshall Faulk with power over Simeon Rice any day, no matter how bad the defense is … but … you don’t have to worry as there is no way Saquon will still be on the board at #5 imho.

    I think we get Bradley Chubb or trade down, maybe more than once and end up with extra picks and a DE like Arden Key or Clellin Ferrel which would be great!

  256. SB Says:

    Tellin ya this kid is what we need . Warren Sapp without the problems. Plus he plays outside and Offense

  257. Easy Says:

    Lol you Barkley haters have obviously never seen him play. That guy is 5’11 and 230 and can run by DBs.

  258. Bird Says:

    For all those saying barber average.

    How do you know. He played only 1 real year at auburn.

    Came out early to buy his mom a house cause she was homeless. He is raw but may just need some time.

  259. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Release this entire secondary. Where is Justin Evans?

  260. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Come on Defense…DRIVE FOR #5

  261. JonBuc Says:

    LOL! Delayed I realize as I’m watching Red Zone…Lil’ Patreek Murray’s clutch kickin’ again I see!

  262. JimBuc2 Says:

    ByeBye Pat. Oh, I meant PAT. Are we ever going to rehire Rich Biasacca? Someone please. Special teams. NOT SPECIAL!!!

  263. Sweeptheleg Says:

    I agree. I like Barkley ALOT

    BUT THEY HAVE TO DRAFT A DE. NO QUESTION. Barkley would be nice. But way bigger holes to fill than RB.

    I don’t think Barber is the answer but he will have to do for now.

    Wouldn’t Hurt my feelings if the whole draft was defense.

  264. JimmJack Says:

    DOes get overrated as top five players sometimes because of the premium of the position. usually RBs taken so high are legit. If they pick Barkley I’ll know why and be a very happy camper.

    wouldn’t wanna draft Chubb and he not work out while Barkley goes bizzerk

  265. NFLNut Says:


    I’d love to see us trade down if Barkley and Chubb aren’t available … if we could pick up a couple extra 2nd rounders, we could draft the best DE available in round one and the best OT, SS and RB available in the 2nd round, with a DT in the 3rd, a CB in the 4th and some developmental guys in the 5-7th rounds.

    1st: Clellin Ferrel, DE
    2nd: Baby Zeus, OT
    2nd: Darrius Guice, RB
    2nd: Ronnie Harrison, SS

    Nice …


  266. Sean Says:

    “Mike Evans GOAT Says:
    December 31st, 2017 at 5:31 pm
    Release this entire secondary. Where is Justin Evans?”

    He’s on IR. Pay attention.

  267. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    If we take the Clemson DE I’m findin a new team. The kid is average with 1 pro bowl DT and 1 future all pro DT playing next to him. Shaq Lawson /Kevin Dobbs 2.0

  268. JimmJack Says:

    you only draft Chubb if he’s a legit top five De. otherwise you don’t reach for need. you can take Barkley or that DB who is highly touted and both holes that need to be filled for our team

  269. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Just killed that kicker

  270. Bird Says:

    Holy hit batman

  271. Bird Says:

    Derrick lutz.

    What movie?

  272. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Oh no Ward out and Tandy in. Maybe he will intercept Brees again and seal the game. Watch how game changes now. Been saying it all year.

  273. Easy Says:

    LMAO trying to get their kicker killed

  274. THETRUTH Says:

    Dirk should have called TO AFTER 3rd to save time, but dirk always coaches as if he is winning by 14

  275. JimBuc2 Says:

    OH YES!! Fake FG Denied!!

  276. King C Says:

    Trickery is how Saints won the Super bowl

  277. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I agree with you completely. Barkley would be nice but we have greater needs on both lines and especially of course at DE. Draft for the trenches.

  278. THETRUTH Says:

    Name last penn state running back to be productive in NFL ??

    They always do good in college , win hiesman and bust in NFL

  279. ElioT Says:

    Thanks Jameis.

    God damn!

  280. Sean Says:

    The incomprehensible turnovers. Will it ever end?

  281. Easy Says:

    Throw it away damnit!!!

  282. Bucnut2 Says:

    Another nice throw by Winton. Who’s fault was that Koetter??? The O-line?

  283. SB Says:

    WHEN THE PHUCK WILL THIS KID LEARN HOW TO throw it away!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  284. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Well….at least he hasn’t fumbled yet….LMAO! You CANT make this stuff up

  285. SKBucsFan Says:

    Dirks fault. Hahahahahahaha!

  286. brooksforGM Says:

    hahahah i just said here comes the josh freeman 2.0 last first half turnover next play a pick OMFG!!!

  287. MadMax Says:

    another JW3 int…..doing his best to secure our draft position……and im ok with it just for this game. But next year he better stop that crap.

  288. ElioT Says:

    That throw was all on Doug Martin.

  289. RealityCheck Says:

    Winston needs to run more. Just run man. Stop looking and run.

  290. SB Says:

    I don’t think he will Ever learn honestly

  291. Bucs14 Says:

    I think we need to draft a QB somewhere in this draft. Americ’a Turnover Machine is at it again today.

  292. Bucnut2 Says:

    Throw it away?? he had a big gain if he just makes an accurate throw.

  293. King C Says:

    Hate to say it but that was a easy throw JW has to make
    Goes for 40 yard gain easy too

  294. buccadawg Says:

    Franchise QB Shamous Winston pic#2, who wants to say thst wasn’t winstons fault?

  295. NFLNut Says:


    Many scouts seem to think Clellin Ferrel has big-time potential and that his line-mates get the batter stats as he’s the one that gets double-teamed play in and play out … I don’t know …

  296. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Please fire this whole staff. Why is nobody chanting at the game? FIRE KOETTER – – – – – FIRE KOETTER

  297. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    3rd down and Dirk is letting the clock run out

  298. Bird Says:

    Good Jameis vs bad Jameis.

    The battle continues but bad Jameis currently dominating.

    They will take a knee? So they don’t turnover

  299. ElioT Says:

    Here come that aggressive play calling.

  300. Bucnut2 Says:

    Nice stop by D!! Joes did you see that, they saved 7 points off JW TO.

  301. Pa buc fan Says:


  302. Dreambig Says:

    Jameis is a idiot. You have an opportunity to go end the half with a lead, the pressure mounts and he melts. Again.

  303. SB Says:

    I just rewound a few times………………6 PHUCKING seconds and you still throw a Pick???????
    Third yr my arse

  304. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    NFL nut.
    I read ALOT of draft stuff and I have seen nothing like that.

  305. Easy Says:

    Joe Logic:

    Winston Int, “Clearly Koetters fault”

    Winston Int, “Clearly Doug Martins fault”

  306. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Ok…let’s do a few runs up the middle to go in at halftime down by 1 point.

  307. Bird Says:

    That’s a hold

  308. ElioT Says:

    Evans should have caught that

  309. Bucs14 Says:

    Mike Evans, quadruple covered, no sweat for Magoo. Force it in, multiple picks.

  310. NFLNut Says:

    “America’s turnover machine” came in to today with a better season completion percentage and passer rating than Russell Wilson … and as the #1 passer rating QB in the entire NFL over the past 4 games … chill out … we need to lose this game!

  311. JimmJack Says:

    reality check you are totally right…….Winston should have run on that play. you cant blame coaching for the poor throw but they have taken Winstons legs out of his game.

    he needs to be coached to run and slide for positive yards more often

  312. King C Says:

    Forcing it ME13 will get INT 3 I’m afraid

  313. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Hey Bucnut your so fine your so fine you blow my mind! Hey Bucnut! Hey hey! Hey Bucnut! I’m glad you support Jaboo!! Go Bucs! Go Winston! The Gunslinger!

  314. satchseven Says:

    he should have took off but looking at the replay the recievers stopped running instead of coming back towards jw

  315. SB Says:

    One thing is for Sure………….NOBODY can blame any of this on our D!
    JW3 with two Pics and the ST with a 103 yard Gaffe!

  316. Tb601 Says:

    Just get Evans his yards and let Barber run.

  317. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    I hate to say it but sometimes the “C” word…as in choke comes to mind with #3.
    Might just be a brain cramp but that interception was an EASY throw. He had Barber open. He might have overthrown him but that still would have been OK because clearly he had used up all the time…he was back there FOREVER.

    All he had to do was dump the ball over Barber’s head safely…or shorten it a bit and see if Barber can make a play…but throwing it short? W T F?

  318. JohnBoy Says:

    One of the many frustrating things about the Bucs is that they really aren’t that far away from being decent.

  319. Bird Says:

    St Pete

    100% right

  320. Bucnut2 Says:

    NUT- stop with the loser stat picking. Look at his career, the guy is a TO machine and here’s a news flash for you and the Joe’s, you CAN NOT win in the NFL when you turn the ball over. That is why Winston has great yardage and such a HORRIBLE won loss record. We will NEVER win with him as QB! Bring on Fitz

  321. King C Says:

    I totally agree JW3 has the Big Ben body to run and if he did it more often he would not do the throw-it-into-triple-coverage-for-a-pick thing so often

  322. T Syce Says:

    Hey Joe your boyfriend just threw ANOTHER TURNOVER. Yeah “America’s ” qb is great. He’s awesome. So awesome in fact that opposing defenses drool over him more than u do. Who here feels great about Winston right now? Oh and by the way he’ll turn it over again b4 today is over

  323. SKBucsFan Says:

    Hahahahaha NFL Nut. Who cares about stats? Russel Wilson is awful. He needs 3 quarters to get warmed up. You obviously have never watched a complete game of his. Boring football until the game is on the line. Oh, and he has had a defense 11 times better than ours for every year he has been in the league. What is their record over that time?

  324. JimmyJack Says:

    i just wish i care enough about this team to be watching with full attention instead of chatting on a webpage. this team is just too brutal to care about

  325. NFLNut Says:

    Bucnut2 … Peyton Manning had MORE turnovers through the same amount of games to start his career … you simply are clueless about the history of QBs … go do some research so you can at least appear to be intelligent when you post.

  326. SB Says:

    Winston displays Brilliance adjacent to Ignorance……….. Only ok if you have a Brilliant D and ST.
    Not here. He is not learning fast enough

  327. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    T Syce I’m with Joe and love me Jameis as well! He is not our problem. Go Bucs!

  328. Easy Says:


    Good point. I’m normally more dialed in but it’s hard the way this team loses games.

  329. AlteredEgo Says:

    Jameis is as Jameis does….Stanford University….Academic Scholarship….really ?????

  330. Lamarcus Says:

    This game is a total tank job. For obvious reasons

  331. brooksforGM Says:

    JW has no touch we all know this. he needs an effective running game and play action if tou ask more of him hell go all bonehead like Josh Freeman. hes Josh Freeman 2.0

  332. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    OK I need one of you football guru’s to clue me in.

    Each team gets eleven players and then they choose how to deploy them.

    If they select a mismatch in one area…as in a double team..they have to surrender coverage in another area. And so unless the Bucs are not sending the normal number of receivers and are just running a couple out there….how does the other team get to double and triple team any of our receivers without another one being wide open somewhere?

    I honestly do not get this. Are our plays so messed up that the other guys are not getting open? Is #3 so fixated on ME13 that he just keeps forcing it?

  333. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    If Jamies doesn’t cut his turnovers in half next year he needs to go. These are rookie mistakes!

  334. SB Says:

    SKBucsFan Says:
    December 31st, 2017 at 5:50 pm
    Hahahahaha NFL Nut. Who cares about stats? Russel Wilson is awful.
    LOLOLOLOLOL…………..Dumbest post I have EVER seen here on JBF
    That says…………A LLLLLOOOOOOTTTTT!

  335. Bucnut2 Says:

    NFL Nut- here are some stats for you. Josh Freeman had a year when he threw 25 touchdowns and had 6 picks. What’s he doing now? Stats mean NOTHING! winning does and JW is a LOSER!!!

  336. NFLNut Says:

    Big Ben almost NEVER runs …

    Russell Wilson was an MVP candidate all year … and Jameis, playing much of the year with a jacked THROWING shoulder has a better completion percentage and PASSER RATING …

    He also has THE BEST PASSER RATING IN THE ENTIRE NFL over the past 4 games … he’s having a bad game, today … it happens … Peyton Manning threw SIX picks in a game, Favre did it in the playoffs, etc … chill … WE NEED TO LOSE THIS GAME to get that top 5 pick … only an IDIOT would want a meaningless win and the #11 pick over a top 5 pick when the TEAM has so many holes …

  337. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Just sitting here thinking how bad this football team and organization is. Lots of blame to go around, but we need to start blaming the Glazers more. They have no clue what they are doing to build a winner and only care about marketing a loser team every offseason.

  338. JimmyJack Says:

    all I remember that was any fun from this season was the bears game. I was pumped screaming at the tv. the next week we get destroyed and I haven’t enjoys any football since.

  339. Easy Says:

    Jameis has 1 more year IMO to get his act together and cut down on the turnovers. He could be gone after next season along with the GM and coaching staff.

  340. USFBUC Says:

    Guys why do you want to win? Some of you all must already be drunk.

  341. SKBucsFan Says:

    Wilson is awful But the Seahawks win. Why? Defense keeps them in it.

  342. Broy34 Says:

    Nfl nut you’re wasting breath. They’ve decided on Winston and koetter. Sad thing is koetter isn’t going anywhere and Winston definitely isn’t. Yes he turns the ball over. If you think that can’t be coached you’re insane. He’s 23 for the love of god.

  343. Bucnut2 Says:

    NFL Nut- Peyton was winning games. NOT Winston. Stop defending the idiot. The guy is a loser.

  344. Pa Privateer Says:

    @ST Pete

    Yes, I believe that #3 focus’ on #13 too much and will force the throw more often than not.

  345. Easy Says:

    @NFLNUT is one of the Joes secret names. We found em on here!!

  346. SB Says:

    Stop smoking Crack SK

  347. SB Says:

    Or take up viewing Professional Knitting

  348. Bucnut2 Says:

    BROY- he’s had 46 career starts. His age means nothing.

  349. SKBucsFan Says:

    We are stuck with JW. I am okay with that. I don’t care about his stats. I care about winning. And we will never win with a poor defense…Lol That’s what I meant to say

  350. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Jimmy jack Dilly dilly!

  351. Pabucfan Says:

    Go Bucs!

  352. NFLNut Says:

    JW is a “loser” …. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA … sure.

    So, the guy that went 26-1 and won a title in college and then his college team fell apart after he left is a “loser” when he goes to a 2-14 NFL laughing stock and gets them to 9-7 in his 2nd year? Sure.

    Aaron Rodgers inherited team that was 13-3 the year before … and he went 6-10

    Jameis inherited a 2-14 team and went 6-10 … and then 9-7 … and this year he got hurt … you Jameis-bashers are so dumb it’s laughable.

    If ya’ll want to educate yourself, go read through all my old posts … if you want to remain stupid, have at it.

    I’m out …

  353. Pa Privateer Says:

    I will be glad to not see Martin play his last game for the Bucs.

    PIPE DREAM: 2018 RBs = Barkley, Barber, Rodgers.

  354. JimmyJack Says:

    disagree the Glazers don’t wanna win. if they didn’t they would pay several former coaches not to coach.

    they just make bad decisions. and they Wil start to spend more and more money in free agency when the team shows they are ready to contend…..like they did with desean.

    my guess is they won’t be spending much this offseason

  355. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Guys why do you want to win?

    Is my math off. I thought the best we could do was third and the worst was ninth. Six spots are just not enough to me excited…now if it’s the first or second pick then you have some control of the draft…but third in a best case scenario and most likely around 5th….MEH. I wouldn’t mind trading down for more picks…I wouldn’t mind trading players for picks…I’d love to load up on draft picks and then load up on DL picks!!!

    We are stuck with JW. I am okay with that. I don’t care about his stats. I care about winning. And we will never win with a poor defense…Lol That’s what I meant to say
    How Stupid are you?????
    Our D is the ONLY reason we are in this game!
    2 STUPID ints by JW and a Gaffe by ST is ALL of their points…

    JameisNOT is still as dumb as a bag of hammers.

    TRUE FRANCHISE QBs don’t LOSE games by fumbling three times or throwing two BONEHEADED ints in one HALF

  360. Sean Says:

    Saints drive for the put-away score here.

  361. USFBUC Says:

    Also, Winston isn’t a bad QB. First he is still young and has been relatively injury free – the kid is still learning and growing up. If we had a respectable RB that would go a long ways towards making. Winston that much better. Also a solid O-line would help too. There is also the pressure of Winston and everyone else in the world knowing our defense is one of the worst in the league. Throw in some coach controversy and that is a lot for a young QB to handle.

  362. Bucnut2 Says:

    NUT- you are wise to get out. Your arguments make no sense. My best to you. See you later.

  363. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!! Knock some heads off!!!

  364. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Joe I have an idea can we do a survivor island style type poll and vote people off who make no sense? It would hold people in check.

  365. SB Says:

    This game is the first one I have picked us to win in the JoeBucsFan.com Pickem in at least 5 weeks and JW3 is DETERMINED to make me lose.

  366. Doctor Stroud Says:

    My random thoughts so far: The offense is playing respectable except for Jekyll and Hyde-Jameis throwing two INTs and constant throws into double or triple coverage. Barber sits for an entire drive at the end of the first quarter in favor of Doug Martin? Why Coach?! This is the last game. There is no need to rest people. Evan Smith is having a really bad game. The special teams coach will be fired. One thing about Coach Koetter: I don’t think that he is stubbornly loyal to assistant coaches. The Stick Carriers would know more about that than I would (since they awarded him the Godfather picture). What can I say about the defense? The Joe(s) would ban me from this website for the profanity, and so I won’t go there. Besides, the third quarter is about to start. Go Bucs!

  367. SB Says:

    BTW…………Congrats St. Aug Buc for WINNING two yrs in a ROW!!!
    Good Show man.

  373. Bucs14 Says:


    How many picks is ATM going to throw in the second half?

    I say he has got 1, plus maybe a fumble left in him.

  374. Capt.Tim Says:

    Thats how its supposed to work.
    McCoy blows up the pocket- drives Breez into Our DE, Ryan Russell

  375. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    One fumble for sure.

  376. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Jameis agreed to tank the game saying….”I’ll tank it but I get the RB”

  377. Pabucfan Says:

    Godwin is great

  378. JimmyJack Says:

    in case you guys don’t know two int games are common in the nfl. it happens to every QB several times per year. it’s not as big a deal as your making it out to be.

    what seperate the good from bad QBs is 4th quarters and if they can drive the ball she the game is on the line and the pressure is on. Winston can drive the ball in those situation IMO. he does not crumble when the game is on the line. the guy can hANdle the pressure and the win will come when the team around him can do more to get us into these moments and to close out games.

  379. Bird Says:

    Great play call.

  380. Easy Says:

    Hard working Humphries!!

    Come on guys…who need a top 5 draft pick…in each round. Better to draft lower to prove to all the naysayers that we have plenty of talent on the team.

  383. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Happy New Years Joes! In the end it’s another year and yet another disappointing Bucs season. Never lose faith, and trust in the game. We will turn this ship around and be dominant. Go Bucs!

  384. Architek Says:

    We need a new playcaller.

  385. Bird Says:

    No knock on benenoch but that guy good and terrible.

  386. Bird Says:

    Stop blaming koetter. We should be up. Turnovers will continue to lose games for us.

  387. JimmyJack Says:

    this game prooves we are good enough to compete with playoff caliber teams. we have more talent then a 4-12 team.

    we just lack the attitude of a winning team. we don’t know how to close out games and she faced against a good team that has that attitude, like last week, we crumble due to lack of confidence

  388. Bird Says:

    Ravens defense is 10th.

    Their offense is garbage. Can you name their receivers and running back

    Yet they are plus 17 in turnover.

    They have chance to be in playoff

    My god Winston. Just throw it away. For Pete’s sakes dude. Pathetic.

    Way to end with a bang Winston!

    Another inexcusable pass from Mr.Winston…

  399. NJBucsFan Says:

    Who called 3 INTs about 20 mins ago. Nailed. You said force feeding Evans and will throw a third.

  401. ATrain Says:

    What the Hell



  402. brooksforGM Says:

    please draft a QB please!!!!

  403. mark2001 Says:

    Just enough talent to be dangerous to earning a top five draft pick.

  404. JimmyJack Says:

    now it’s a 3 int game. harsh critism of Winston is fair.

    still time. a good team can give him a chance to win this one point game. we are not a good team however.

  405. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Jamies is an idiot, bench this kid

    Yeah draft a QB & not a brotha !

  409. SB Says:

    OK…….I may be the Only Gators fan that was on board with the JW Draft
    3 fumbles last week when we could have won the game
    3 STUPID picks this week when we could have won the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!|\
    I was wrong!! Sorry Joes……………..JW is NOT a Franchise QB

  410. Quattrolou Says:

    Since Jameis saved Koetters job, per reports, I assume he runs the teams day to day operations as well. It’s obvious he has a player in mind to draft as is blowing this game to ensure the pick he needs.

  411. ElioT Says:

    Just giving the game to the Saints.


    This is literally another way to lose.

  412. Bucs14 Says:

    Well, that makes 3 picks. ATM strikes again!

  413. Matts17 Says:

    JW is simply incapable of making consistently good decisions. He’s Vinny and Freeman all rolled into one very dumb football player.

  414. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    It’s like he’s not learning

  415. SB Says:

    He is a Phuckin IDIOT!!!!

  416. mark2001 Says:

    Shut up you naysayers…he is progressing…rapidly. Don’t believe your eyes. They are deceiving you…. Milky Way’s QB at it again. Winning.

  417. Bucssuccs Says:

    Who wants to praise jameis now?! Mr. Magoo strikes again! Good thing the lightning are playing. Who wants to spend their hard earned money on this sh**show?

  418. brooksforGM Says:

    Spielman just roasted JW hahahahah

  419. Bucnut2 Says:

    OK- Joes and nut was that on the O-line, Koetter, the defense, the tooth fairy??? who’s fault was that? Oh I forgot, he was AWESOME at FSU.

  420. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    Marcus Mareota in the playoffs. Meanwhile, JW throws his third pickoff in a game that they should really be playing well for Dirk. Just look at his body language and facial expressions….makes you wonder if there is truth in the HC and QB having issues.

  421. Easy Says:

    Chris Spielman speaking the truth on Winston

  422. Rob Says:

    Bravo to the Human ATM, Jameis Winston, better known as America’s turnover machine. Doing his very best to preserve his team’s top five draft pick. Complete joke. Go Bucs!

    You hear the announcer?………….Year after Year he makes the SAME Mistakes!!!!!!!!
    Ever since FSU…..But this is the NFL

  424. satchseven Says:

    stop forcing stuff to mike evans it is nuts how jw 3 does that. everybody in the nfl knows he is going to force the ball to evans sooner or later. does he need glasses? i am not joking

  425. Bucs14 Says:


    I called it. Still predicting a fumble on a sack in the fourth. It is Magoo’s usual MO

    Jameis is obviously tanking for #5 pick.

  429. SteveK Says:

    That last INT was dumb. I could understand if it were a Hail Mary at the end of a half, but damn.

    Is Fitzpatrick better at this point?

  430. I'm a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Bench Jameis! Put Fitz in while we are still in the game and give us a chance to win win going out in 2017.

  431. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    Rob is spot on. ATM

  432. Pa Privateer Says:

    #3 bonehead plays are more detrimental to the team than our HC IMO

  435. T Syce Says:

    Hey Joe your boyfriends on fire today. 3picks!!!! JOE YOU’RE STUPID AS PHUCK IF YOU THINK HE IS WHAT U PROCLAIM HE IS.

  436. satchseven Says:

    also fire the QB coach he obviously is not getting thru

  437. JimmyJack Says:

    there has to be a way to teach Winston not to make that throw from field goal range. if he makes that play from the 45 yard line it’s not so bad………But how is it that he has been making these bad throws for 3 seasons and is still making them? I just wonder if a different coach could get him to not make that play from that field position.

  438. Easy Says:

    Damn what a throw and catch

  439. Bird Says:

    On positive note

    We get barkely or Chubb (uruni)

  440. mark2001 Says:

    Sydney…that is why they love this coach. It is like the kid whose mom and dad party with them…they love their parents.

  441. Don Ryjo Says:

    One has no choice but envy the universe Jameis lives in. Jameis exists in his own little reality where his abilities are limitless and every option is brilliant. What I wouldn’t give to have Jameis’ sense of optimism and self-confidence.


  442. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    Bench JameisNOT and activate Aguayo…. he could throw the ball better than JW

  443. ATrain Says:


  444. Bucnut2 Says:

    Joes- you all made fun of Fitz. Well let’s see Fitz- 2-1, Winston 2-11. HUMMM.

  445. firethecannons Says:

    now that koetter is solid we have NOTHING to look forward too, no change coming–just more of this stupid sht show that JW is giving us–that was a shame–he threw it into quadruple coverage on the run time to align with a new team–Jameis throws the game away–man hold on to it and go for a field goal to to get ahead–stupid loser!!!!!!!!!!!!

  446. Maxx Says:

    At the end of the day, or this game… How can you not love Drew Brees?

  447. Gt40bear Says:

    True franchise QBs don’t make that throw! Either he is uncoachable or the coaching SUCKS! Can’t believe he has been coached to throw that! Since Dirk is staying, Bajakian HAS TO GO! SOMEBODY has to get it through Jameis’s head to stop making STUPID decisions!

  448. Bird Says:

    Lavonte. Other favorite player

  449. SB Says:

    LVD just made the last three plays.
    IF it weren’t for him?????????????????????????

  450. Maxx Says:

    I actually just said out loud..lI wish Fitzpatrick was in there.

  451. JimmyJack Says:

    when Winston makes a throw like that is when I start to question how much progression Dirk has truly made with him……..understanding game situation and field position is defientaly coachable……….when the play is called to him not making a poor decision like that should be told to Winston if he doesn’t already understand it

  452. ATrain Says:

    If there is 4 Saints in that corner we have two open players or The Saints have 20 people in the field

  453. Zwak Says:

    They better get JW the best QB coach they can find and a mental therapist, this kid needs lots of help!

  454. Don Ryjo Says:

    @gt40bear From your lips to G~d’s ears.

  455. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Defense fighting hard……can’t keep turning it over to NO….

  456. satchseven Says:

    i like jw 3 but dude you got to get over this love affair with evans, most of his picks career wise is from forcing stuff to me13

  457. Dreambig Says:

    Winston needs to be benched. Koetter needs to send a message that stupidity will not be tolerated.

  458. Bird Says:

    Koetter gets ripped by everyone

    Gotta be tough to call game when your quarterback has 2 personalities.

  459. Maxx Says:

    We need an infusion of offensive creativity to use what we have for Peter sake.

  460. SB Says:

    Agree with Gt40bear and Don Ryjo……………Haven’t seen enough Improvement as HARD as it is for me to say

  461. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Hard knocks we saw koetter Jamies to stop making stupid throws, but he keeps doing it! So it’s not coaching, Jamies knows not to do it, yet he does it anyway. Maybe it’s something he refuses to change, if that’s the case, we need to let him go.

  462. satchseven Says:

    ” Bajakian HAS TO GO! SOMEBODY has to get it through Jameis’s head to stop making STUPID decisions!”

    i agree 100 percent go hire a ex pro qb like jim zorn, go bring mike martz out of retirement frank reich some body!!!!!!

  463. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Should bench Jameis when he does that….that would be coaching….

  464. Bucnut2 Says:

    Everyone jus keep in mind, 6 point swing there, ir JW throws it away we hopefully kick a field goal. Saints take TO and get 3. However let me say in advance the if we somehow come back and take the lead only to eventually lose, the Joe’s narrative will be” Winston gave the team the lead only to have the defense blow it” Joe’s over the last 4 weeks have conveniently forgotten that Winton costs us points during the game and only remember the bad stuff the defense does.

  465. firethecannons Says:

    gtbear is right–somebody cannot get through to this stupid kid to stop throwing these jump balls into quadruple coverage–man what a shame–he is a worthless quarterback — seriously cannot be trusted with the ball–he needs to go–something way wrong with that kid

    this coming from a devout JW supporter

  466. Dewey Selmon Says:

    They trying to get Evans 1000 yards. It’s not working.

  467. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Winston throwing it away on that last play is the best pass all day

  468. Bird Says:

    How are we in this game ?

  469. Bucs fan #7423 Says:


  470. Bird Says:

    Barber runs hard

  471. NJBucsFan Says:

    I wonder what Kellyanne Conway type ofstory will be written about Winston after the game? I bet the blame is on Martin.

  472. Bucs14 Says:

    Her come the O line penalties.

  473. Pa Privateer Says:

    Positive yards……thank you barber

  474. JimmyJack Says:

    their Dline is starting to beat us…….no more deep dropbacks. If Dirk calls these long developing plays their line will make us pay

  475. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    Who will the starting QB be next year when JW is serving his 6 game suspension??????

  476. mark2001 Says:

    You do know the D is keeping us in this game, don’t you?

  477. satchseven Says:

    They trying to get Evans 1000 yards. It’s not working. i hope not !!!!!

  478. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    Hawley is a friggen joke if a lineman & I bet dumb ass throws another pick !

  479. Bird Says:

    Chris spielman is a pimp

    Do you know his story. He was all pro linebacker.

    Quit game in his prime to take care of dying wife.

    That’s cool sh!t

  480. Bucs14 Says:

    At the end of the quarter Jameis held up four fingers for 4 quarters. I think he was signaling 4 picks.

  481. Bucnut2 Says:

    is Jamies signaling the forth quarter or predicting he’ll have ANOTHER TO making it 4 for the game. I am going with the latter!

  482. Maxx Says:

    How bout we draft Lamar Jackson and go outside the box?

  483. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    LMAO! Jameis hold up 4 fingers for 4th quarter. Was that for our defense? LMAO. CANT make this stuff up…EVER

  484. SB Says:

    Gotta be tough to call game when your quarterback has 2 personalities.

  485. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    He was signaling that he wanted to eat three of his his fingers to form a L for yet another loss

    ALL ON YOU JW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  495. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Great job Tampa bay!!!!!!

  496. Easy Says:

    Time for another INT or Winston fumble on the snap exchange

  497. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    Lamar Jackson ? Are you effin kidding ? Guy cannot throw either ! And no brains ! Just another dumb ass athlete & don’t want dumb ass athlete for QB !

  498. Draftqbwith5thpick Says:

    That’s the only way we can score. Keep JW off the field

  499. Bird Says:

    We can’t win this meaningless game

    Sorry. I know it’d negative but its true

  500. Maxx Says:

    As much as I want them to lose for a high draft pick, what a cool play!!!!!!

  501. NJBucsFan Says:

    Nice to see someone step it up. I will say this. They haven’t quit on DK

  502. I Bleed Pewter and Red Says:

    Jameis has got to learn to change his cadence. When the other team blitzes it’s as if they know the snap count

  503. JimmyJack Says:

    what was that? that’s a play that good teams make

  504. DprwPm Says:

    This is a 4 point game you phuckin’ fatalist crying-as$ little girls. I can recall many times deep in the careers of a Brees, Ryan, Newton, Mannings, Brady, Rothelisberger, Luck, Wilson, Rodgers etc. etc. etc where they look horrible and throw 3+ picks in a game making rookie mistakes and bad decisions/throws. We’re talking about 5+ year ‘elite’ qb’s looking straight up awful from time to time. It’s funny how those qb’s still manage to post winning seasons during those rough patches. Idk, not entirely sure what that’s about but it MIGHT have something to do with the team and situation around them. You know… for all you who also want to bitch about ‘his’ record.

  505. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Vote them off! It was hilarious seeing Sean Payton instantly grab for his red flag. Lmao.

  506. DoNUTS Says:

    The Bucs now have a “Immaculate Fumble Recovery TD” play.

  507. Maxx Says:

    Jarod…I was being somewhat facetious.

  508. mark2001 Says:

    No need for a top five pick…ten will do just fine. We have the talent. Look out league, here come the Tampa Bay Bucs.

  509. NJBucsFan Says:

    So DorwPM…if we lose the game will it be on the defense?

  510. Capt.Tim Says:

    It would be just like these idiots.
    Win a meaningless game, So we can miss out on Arden Key and Bradley Chubb

  511. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Drive for #5 defense. You can DO IT!

  512. Easy Says:

    Breesus fxn to hit Thomas with a bomb

  513. Buc50 Says:

  514. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Josh Robinson didn’t get the tank message…..

  515. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Buffalo needed 3 plays and 50 seconds. lol relax. we got this. #5 draft pick.

  516. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    DprwPm praise the lawd!

  517. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    It’s not about the score, it’s how the players are playing

  518. JimmyJack Says:

    Scotty a better snap count could have been used to sniff that blitz out….Our offense has a lot more then snap counts to worry about. we are not there yet.

  519. Bucnut2 Says:

    Dewey- I hope you are right, we need to draft a QB!

  520. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Peyton b pi$$ed

  521. DprwPm Says:

    Oh, look at there! another phase of the football team making a play and putting us in the lead. Maybe that’s a more practical route to winning games rather than expecting your 23 yr old QB to put the city on his back with 500 yds and 4+ td’s every single week.

  522. ATrain Says:

    See the Saints don’t stand for fumbles

    The Bucs just say Oh Well we were Flat today

  523. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Come on Bucs screw up your draft position. Good job idiots.

  524. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Who will be this years Tavarese King

  525. DoNUTS Says:

    Never fear the Bucs D is here…to allow the other team to quickly score and take the lead.

  526. mark2001 Says:

    But with a #10 pick, we could draft the best kicker in the league. That is all we need. Gooooo Bucs.

  527. Sydney Says:


  528. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Captain Tim
    Arden key will still be there long after we pick.

  529. Bird Says:


    Jameis messiah cult.

    It’d OK to be critical of a player. Except jameis in ur eyes. Keep calling people names and comparing him to the all time greats.

    Not sure the altime grsts won 2 games in 2 separate years.

  530. JimmyJack Says:

    ole Dirk needs to figure out how to work this fourth quarter. we need the last posession.

  531. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Go D…Go D…Go D…Go D

  532. Mike Johnson Says:

    SNAKEBIT!!! Thats our bucs. They need to lose But watch’em Win..thus losing a chance at DE Chubb in the draft. Sure, you losers will say, there are other good players to be selected and thats true. But why can’t We..select prime Beef?
    CHUBB is a Warrenish Sapp type Dfensive player. But just watch us win..making us..LOSERS in the draft!!

  533. mark2001 Says:

    This is the real Dooms Day Defense…and they will play in the SB next Dooms Day.

  534. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    I love #54 ! He is by far the best player & Mr.consistent that we have !

    Brees has all day long. This wont take too long. They may want to slow it down.

  537. Bucs14 Says:

    Looks like the Ice Cream led defense is getting soft. Another 4th quarter let down looming.

  538. mark2001 Says:

    No game is meaningless….5-11 vs 4-12…a world of difference. And winning the last game of the season? All the difference in the world. SB bound baby…..

    @mark…it’s been old for a while. Let it go man.

  540. Bird Says:

    Sorry he won 6 as rookie

  541. Bucnut2 Says:

    Mark- are you ok???

  542. mark2001 Says:

    14…you miss the psychology of it. They are used to being pressured on a weekly basis. Bore them to death…no adrenaline flowing…they aren’t used to playing that way. Genius.

  543. Bucs14 Says:

    D line is pathetic…no rush, no penetration

  544. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Bird….I once read that Joe Montana, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were all rookies once. Just like Winston

  545. Easy Says:

    Kwon has to miss more tackles than any other MLB

  546. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Thats MY DL baby!

  547. BuccoDav Says:

    That’s what you do against the blitz…

  548. MadMax Says:

    Dont worry, we’ll still lose this….

  549. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Come on D. Shucky Shucky Bucky Luck!

  550. Sydney Says:


  551. mark2001 Says:

    Smile guys…it is only a game… 2017 is almost is over. The season is over, but for the guys on the field. Some of you sound like you think 2018 is doomed to be the same as 2017.

  552. Bucnut2 Says:

    NJ- in case you hadn’t noticed, Winton is not a rookie any more. He has 45 NFL starts

  553. JimmyJack Says:

    need one play from the D in crunch time. one play. we just can’t do it

  554. Bird Says:

    They are fighting which is cool.

  555. King C Says:

    Kamara got the best of Kwon that time

  556. NJBucsFan Says:

    @BucNut…I’m sorry. Should have used my sarcasm font

  557. Capt.Tim Says:

    Arden Key- after the combine, will be top two DE. He will be the best pass rushing DE in this draft

  558. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    that’s what I am talking about.

  559. WeAreLost Says:

    Why does the defense suck azz every effin time we have the lead?

  560. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Drive for 5

  561. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    That’s what a 95 yard drive they just gave up in the 4th quarter ! My god I hate this effin defence !

  562. Bucnut2 Says:

    Ok Joes- let me write your first headline tonight. ” Can’t blame Winston, soft defense blows 4 quarter lead again”. Just trying to help you.

  563. Capt.Tim Says:

    Ive picked top rookie DE in sacks, 4 if last 6 seasons.
    Arden Key is going to be the man

  564. Bucs14 Says:

    With that TD by NO the stage is now set for America’s Turnover Machine to throw his 4th pick of the game. We all now he is going to try to force it to ME13. If I were the Saints I would double cover ME13 on every play for the rest of the game cause you know Magoo is going to throw it there sooner or later.

  565. DoNUTS Says:

    Why does the defense suck azz every effin time we have the lead?

    In the NFL, no pressure on QB = losing.

  566. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    Time for pick 4

  567. mark2001 Says:

    As a Buc fan, you better learn to not take this all so seriously. The Glazers don’t seem to.

  568. Bucnut2 Says:

    Thanks NJ- thought you were a JOE alias for a minute.

  569. JimmyJack Says:

    they just completely owned us. not only driving for a RD but taking so much time of the clock and now they basically own last posession.

    Gotta try to take a quick shot for a quick score to get last posession. if that don’t work you gotta try to work the sidelines……..no more then 3 mins on this dtive

  570. Sydney Says:







  571. Bird Says:

    Cmon bucs.

    I mean the bucs select Chubb with the 5 the pick.

    Problem is browns have the pick in front of us and its their second. Which means they get qb with 1st. They will trade out of 4 which could mean team moving up to get our guy

  572. Bucnut2 Says:

    Here comes Winston’s 4th TO of the night

  573. King C Says:

    Saints GM should be exec of the year for getting Lattimore, Kamar and two other starters in one draft

  574. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Great game from Hump

  575. Bird Says:

    All the barber haters

    Suck it

  576. King C Says:

    Actually I think its good for us because someone will want to trade up for Browns at No. 4 to get a QB like last year with Watson

  577. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice accuracy

  578. NJBucsFan Says:

    Not spam!

  579. NJBucsFan Says:

    No way he throws a 4th INT…if he does, it’s Mike Smith’s fault.

  580. JimmyJack Says:

    hurry hurry hurry!! Dirk mismanaging the clock again. he giving up last posession. idiotic

  581. Bird Says:

    King c

    Kinds agree but not sure their is 4 starters for the first 4

  582. Sweeptheleg Says:

    They are determined to f up their draft position.

  583. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Sydney, no one said 10 years. they might get rid of Dirk and Jameis. groping issue still to come in the offseason.

  584. Easy Says:

    Godwin is strong

  585. King C Says:

    I think we all knew from the preseason that Godwin is a stud

  586. Bucnut2 Says:

    he almost got Godwin killed

  587. Bucs14 Says:

    If Jameis could throw the ball on target…..

  588. BuccoDav Says:


  589. Bucs14 Says:

    If this were Baseball, we could send Magoo back to the minor’s for seasoning. He reminds me of a pitching prospect who has control issues.

  590. NJBucsFan Says:

    Man they really want to ruin the draft position premium

  591. Bird Says:

    Godwin balling.

  592. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey guys- question. IF as some have suggested, Winston’s performance the last 3 games saved Koetter’s job, Will Koetter get fired after tonight given Winston’s performance tonight?

  593. JimmyJack Says:

    Dirk trusting his Defense? Don’t see this one working out.

  594. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Let’s go Defense Clap Clap….Lets go!

  595. Doug p Says:

    Winston is a bum!! Koetter needs to draft a QB that is emotionally stable.

  596. BuccoDav Says:

    It’s not Winstons performance. It’s that the TEAM hasn’t quit.

  597. Bucnut2 Says:

    If one of the top QB’s is there, we HAVE To draft him

  598. Phillybuc Says:

    Inside the 25 and we abandon the run game??

  599. JimmyJack Says:

    Brate got owned a little bit on his throw. couldn’t fend off the coverage. Winston gotta hit godwin……..nobody stepping up

  600. BuccoDav Says:


  601. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Headline on another football website:

    Saints are trailing the Buccaneers, somehow


  602. JimmyJack Says:

    one play. we need the D to make one friggen play

  603. THETRUTH Says:

    Coach doesn’t realize we need to stop and drive field not enough time Will lose game we can’t stop saints

    Kamara on 3 es down gains 20

  604. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Bucco. I’ve been saying this for 3 weeks now. The team is not quitting on DK (except Baker). They want him as their coach no matter how their performance screams for him to be fired (not rightfully though)

  605. BuccoDav Says:

    Brates didn’t get owned… he was there, the pass was wide!

  606. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    AND we have to burn a time out……LMAO!

  607. Bucs14 Says:

    I don’t know if a new Qb is the answer. We may be best living with ATM for another year if we can build a solid defense. My choice would be to build the D first.

  608. MadMax Says:

    come on Kwon, be ok…… sit him coach!

  609. Bird Says:

    Man. Fighting hard

    Mariota with body fumble.

    Mark Sanchez is stoked

  610. Chris Says:

    But Joe will point out Jameis brought us to within one missed pat to being tied, while ignoring the three pics

  611. Bucs14 Says:

    One thing I will say. Mariota is going to the playoffs……

  612. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Should have gone for it on 4th down…another GREAT Dirk move.

  613. Sydney Says:





  614. ClearwaterWes Says:

    I cant see why they think smith is a good corner

  615. BuccoDav Says:

    A new QB is not the answer, yet. I’m as disappointed as anyone with JW3s slow progress but I think there are enough positives that you have to hope for improved decision making between year 3 and 4.

  616. Capt.Tim Says:

    Why the spam message?

  617. Bird Says:


    I just almost posted same thing. He will comment jameis didn’t have good game. But he is still Americas qb

  618. JimmyJack Says:

    Nah Brate was supposted to cut to the outside away from the defender. The ball was not supposted to be thrown on top of the defender. Brate got wrapped up and couldn’t get separation.

  619. Capt.Tim Says:

    Soon, Ryan Smith will be our best CB

  620. Architek Says:

    I’m sorry this coaching staff, players, and schemes aren’t good enough! They will not and can’t win a super bowl with this team.

  621. Jarod Lauderdale Says:

    If Ryan Smith is on this team next year I will puke ! And who cares what QB we have ! We need defence defence defence

  622. JimmyJack Says:

    We need one play!!! Third and long easy setup

  623. mark2001 Says:

    The D is playing well.

  624. Bird Says:

    Scott in fst Antonio

    Cmon man. Dirk has been good. Team fighting hard without many starters

  625. BuccoDav Says:

    Oh. I’m sorry JimmyJack. I didn’t know you had the playbook…my bad.

  626. BuccoDav Says:

    Brees almost pulled a Jameis!

  627. JimmyJack Says:

    We made a play. I can hardly believe it

  628. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Ok….here comes Magoo for the win!

  629. Bucnut2 Says:

    Ok- here we go! Winston time!

  630. DB55 Says:

    Clinton McDonald with the clutch 4th qrt sack something you could never say about cancer93.

  631. Easy Says:

    Time for INT number 4 on first down

  632. JimmyJack Says:

    Buc o it was pretty easy to see Brate trying to make his cut and not able to get off the defender

  633. Capt.Tim Says:

    4 guys blocking McCoy!! Even the announcers called it.
    Our linemen suck soooo bad

  634. Bird Says:

    Jameis. Step up

  635. Aristotle Says:

    Godwin > Jackson

  636. brooksforGM Says:



    if we win… what pick does that give us?

  638. mark2001 Says:

    Told you guys that have eyes to see. The D has been playing hard all night. 24 points to the Saints and only 17 of them by the hands of Brees?

  639. WeAreLost Says:

    This is it boys. Go bucs.

  640. Bird Says:

    There is db 55.

    Watch jameis drive for fg and he will call everyone retarded

  641. P’cola Buc Says:

    Is it not better at this point for the Bucs to lose and receive a 5th overall pick rather than win and receive a 9th overall pick?

  642. JimmyJack Says:

    DB55…..not 100% sure it was McCoy but I think he was knocked on the ground in that key moment

  643. JimmyJack Says:

    Well Winston has last possession 2 minutes

  644. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    So if Murray wins this with a last second field goal does he get to keep his job after than missed extra point?

  645. Bucs14 Says:

    Pick 4 on the way.

  646. Eric Says:

    If they win this meaningless game and blow the chance to have the best draft pick then I give up on the Bucs for good. The incompetence from the owners and the crappie coaches along with loser players, is too much to endure for something that is supposed to be entertainment.

  647. Sydney Says:


  648. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lol! Yup. This will be next yeat!

  649. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Godwin was the right player for Jameis. Like Barber is better for Jameis. Next the online will fall into place. Go Bucs!

  650. Bucnut2 Says:

    you have to give Winston credit, he is REALLY trying to get that forth pick.

  651. BobbyBucs Says:

    we need to dump Jackson and start playing Godwin

    I think JW feels less pressure without him in the game. Jackson cries for the ball when it should really be going to Evans.

    DK and JL better clean this up in the offseason

  652. Bucnut2 Says:

    oh no, a completion

  653. Eric Says:

    Exhibit A Qb throwing into triple coverage

  654. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Why are there three or four freaking defenders everywhere he throws it..to ME to Hump….can he not see open guys somewhere?

  655. T Syce Says:

    2mins left to get in fg range. Jw3 will turn the ball over

  656. JimmyJack Says:

    No clock stop on sideline route?

  657. Bird Says:


  658. VA BUC Says:

    Jameis betta lose this game

  659. Bird Says:


  660. Bucs14 Says:

    Pick 4 looming…15 secs.

  661. Bucnut2 Says:

    we can’t win this meaningless game.

  662. Bird Says:

    Figured if we win this one

  663. JimmyJack Says:

    We need to work the sidelines better

  664. NJBucsFan Says:


    Really nice catch but why?

  665. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Yay. There went the 5th pick. Stupid as s team.

  666. Bucs14 Says:

    Wow! Where has that been all year?

  667. Easy Says:

    Fire the cannons!!

  668. mark2001 Says:

    Told you we would pull this meaningless game out…the perfect ending of a perfect year.

  669. Brandon Says:

    I love my bucs…..it’s been a very disappointing season and we all know that, but to all you negative so called fans…..SUCK IT!!!!!!!

  670. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    FML. Stupid $hit

  671. DoNUTS Says:

    Wow! Nice job Winston – Godwin!

  672. MadMax Says:

    SON OF A B!!!! well theres goes high draft positions in 1st and 2nd.

  673. JimmyJack Says:

    Holy Fock!!! That call took some serious balls. What a throw!!!

  674. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It’s a sucs life

  675. MadMax Says:

    i love Godwin though, great catch!

  676. mark2001 Says:

    You can “suck it” Brandon. Expect better next year? Pathetic.

  677. WeAreLost Says:

    Holy shat. Thank you

  678. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Tampa bay b#!!!!!! Go Jamies! 😀

  679. Bucnut2 Says:

    The unfortunate thing about this game is that it will mask the fact that we need a qb

  680. P’cola Buc Says:

    But we did!???! Are You Kidding Me?????

  681. JimmyJack Says:

    Did Evans get his 1k?

  682. Zwak Says:

    There goes that draft pick!

  683. Eric Says:

    What fools!

  684. BuccoDav Says:

    Who was the fracking idiot who said Koetter wasted the last pissession?

  685. Sydney Says:




  686. Sweeptheleg Says:


    Hey dumb as s that meaningless win really only hurts the team. Stupid.


    holy sht!!!!!!

  688. Mike in LOL Says:

    Bucs win, but I wish they had lost lol only given the better draft since 5-11 is still pathetic

  689. Mike Evans GOAT Says:


  690. brooksforGM Says:

    did JW just thread a chutch TD throw?!

  691. mark2001 Says:

    Cleveland north will kick our backsides next year. Count on it.

  692. King C Says:

    Bucs win Bucs win Bucs win!!!

    In other news NO Saints really suck to lose to the Bucs!

  693. BucsFan90 Says:

    That’s my quarterback!!!!!!! Suck it Jaboo haters!!

  694. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Suck it BucNut! Go Bucs!

  695. JimmyJack Says:

    Eat our balls New Orleans…..Remember who knocked your game out of your town!!!

  696. JonBuc Says:

    Can’t win for losing….really?!

  697. RealityCheck Says:

    That was impressive. Good drive to end the year on.

  698. Bird Says:

    Here come the joes

  699. Sweeptheleg Says:

    This only hurts the Bucs.

  700. Eric Says:

    Winston you blew it you stupid fool, now we wont get a pass rush for a worthless game.

  701. DBS Says:

    Now go suck on your baby bottles you bunch of cry babies!!!!!

  702. WeAreLost Says:

    Sweeptheleg what a loser you are.

  703. MadMax Says:

    Welp Arden Key or maybe Vita Vea if we trade back some…….maybe Nelson!

  704. King C Says:

    I think it’s ironic JW won this game despite 3 picks but not the other games with no picks

  705. LJS4th Says:

    This is why I have given up on this stupid team!!!! WHY??? 4th or 5th pick to what 9th???? For what!!! What idiots!!!!!

  706. Dewey Selmon Says:

    All we needed was a FG, IF YOU GONNA WIN. WIN BIG!

  707. mark2001 Says:

    Since Carolina is losing, wasn’t this loss “meaningless” to the Saints? Only the Bucs lost…great draft picks.

  708. NFLNut Says:




  709. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Well….how ’bout dat……..WHO DAT….DAT BEAT THEM AINTS

  710. CG Buc Says:

    As exciting as it was, that was the worst thing for the franchise.
    We need talent. Talent comes from high draft picks.
    May have lost the best pass rusher in this year’s draft.

  711. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    It’s obvious OJ is going to be great but Godwin might be the steal of this draft…unless Evans keeps improving. Godwin is there right now!!!

    I think we may end up like those old great Steeler teams with Stallworth and Lynn Swann. Hard to really identify which of those two great players were the star WR on that team.

    Godwin and ME13 are going to be a stout pair for years to come.

  712. NFLNut Says:

    And, NO, I did NOT want the Bucs to win … but they only dropped from #5 to #8, so this was a good win

  713. buccadawg Says:

    Ok i guess i owe the BUCS a apology, what a final drive , GO BUCS, WAIT TiLLNEXT YEAR. LOL!!!!

  714. FR Says:

    We won the super bowl

  715. JimmyJack Says:

    Oh dang we didn’t hurt New Orleans with that win.

    At least we sent them a message for what to expect next year

  716. mark2001 Says:

    Meaningless loss for Saints as Carolina is losing to. Once again, the Saints are laughing at us.

  717. BUC IT Says:

    Way to go Bucs you stupid idiots!!!! Winning today changed nothing but we lost 4 spots in the draft. IDIOTS!!!!!

  718. NFLNut Says:

    This game meant a ton to the Saints … the loss drops them from the 3rd seed to the 4th seed …

  719. BobbyBucs Says:

    I can’t believe people want us to lose

    It’s better going out with a WIN – it hurts the Saints

    How do the Pats, Packers, etc. ALWAYS get good picks with their high draft picks???

  720. 1Gr8Buc Says:


  721. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Chris Godwin !!!!!!!!!!

  722. Sweeptheleg Says:

    @we are lost

    You are an idiot. Total moron.
    Even your mother thinks so.

  723. Don Ryjo Says:

    *Blink Blink*

    They… … …won?

  724. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Stupid win… Better not cost us a HOF in the draft

  725. lurker Says:

    man it feels nice to win, especially a close one.

    happy new years all

  726. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    The packers NEVER hit on their first round picks. Lol last 5 years of defensive drafts and only 1 starter. Patriots have the 2 goats. Belicheat and Brady. Most coaches couldn’t win 8games with the roster the pats have.

  727. FR Says:

    I bet any of you Winston is gonna do the same crap next year he has done for the last 3 years. Turnover Turnover Turnover if the Saints D catches the ball Winston has 5 INTs today

  728. Doctor Stroud Says:

    THE BUCS WIN! All is right in the world again…until they lose (or not go to the playoffs)…

  729. BobbyBucs Says:

    @Mike Evans GOAT

    oh really – B. J. Raji, Clay Matthews III, a Ha Clinton-Dix

  730. NFLNut Says:

    And had the Panthers won, the Saints would have LOST THE DIVISION and dropped all the way to the 6th seed … they were playing their hearts out today and got beat by the Bucs … the Bucs are nowhere near as “far away” as some of you think

  731. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    The difference between 3rd and 9th pick are not a franchise maker or buster.

    There is a 50% bust rate for those picks anyway. Licht has played well ahead of those odds with that one bad draft of Aguayo and VHG. Otherwise he’s had two drafts of four studs each…and I mean stars!!!!

    If Licht can and four this year for the trenches we’re set. They don’t need to be JJWatt…they need to be solid producers capable of 10 sacks if not 15. 2 of them…2 more starting level OL to push our current lineup…and we’re set. We can always nab a decent running back and in fact Barber is decent and growing.
