  1. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Anyone know what happened to Jameis’s captain patch?

  2. Bayers Says:

    Jameis Winston captain patch is gone??

  3. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Correct, just saw him and it’s not there. Or I have had too much beer too early prepping for some disappointment.

  4. Rod Munch Says:

    Plenty of good seats still available!

  5. MadMax Says:

    yuckaneers, suckaneers, bleh

  6. Bayers Says:

    Dam bra you right it’s not there that’s crazy

  7. Bayers Says:

    Colorado your right I wander what happened

  8. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Maybe the Joes can tell us what’s up after the game with his captaincy patch.

  9. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Love the Bucs but this is gonna be ugly.
    Halftime should have some fireworks assuming anyone is left in the stadium to start the chant….”we want Gruden!!!

  10. Bayers Says:

    Let’s ask them now. Hey joes I love your site I was wandering if you have word on what happened to jameis captain patch

  11. Bucnut2 Says:

    Did you all hear Suzy Kolber referring to Winston as a “turnover machine” in pre-game? Pretty bad when Suzy is trash talking “America’s QB”

  12. Bayers Says:

    Hopefully jabo wins can come out on fire and earn the patch back and show the NFC south what to expect next season

  13. unbelievable Says:

    Wow. The C patch is gone, huh?

    Doug suspended for an unknown violation.

    Interesting times indeed. Maybe the 3rd surprise of the night will be a Bucs win??

  14. Leebucsfan Says:

    At least i know im not going to be up late tonight. Theyll find a way to get me to stop watching by 930.

  15. EA Says:

    Jason Licht should draft to stop Hulio next year, holly smokes, he has smoked the bucs in his 7 years, most yards of any player against one team.

  16. Bayers Says:

    Unbelievable right I sure hope so cause two surprises already have me wandering what else is in store

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis is 3-1 versus Atlanta and has had amazing success versus them – the only loss that was that blow-out Thursday loss last season and in that game he threw for 260 yards and 3 TDs before leaving early with an injury.

    However with Dirk regressing at an alarming rate and with a garbage offensive line and no running game, we’ll see what happens.

  18. Rod Munch Says:

    This is the first time I’ve watched MNF all year and what a God awful intro song this is – truly embarrassing stuff.

  19. BucfaninMi Says:

    Someone needs to knock JJ on his a$$! All night!

  20. Bucnut2 Says:


  21. unbelievable Says:

    @rod 100%, I just looked at my lady and said wtf is this?

  22. Bird Says:

    Justin Evans balling

  23. Bucnut2 Says:

    WOW a stop

  24. Bird Says:

    Scripted plays. We can’t mess these up

  25. EA Says:

    jameis is getting closer on deep balls, by his 6th year he should hit 25% of them.

  26. Easy Says:

    Lol I knew instantly they were going to Sims on that play.

  27. Leebucsfan Says:

    Is it just me or the stadium is quiet like an away game. Thats terrible, did you see all the open seats during pregame. I had to check and make aure my tv worked

  28. cmurda Says:

    PI defense. No call. 3rd and 5? Dirk looking the same as Dirk has looked for 13 games. Empty set screen throw to Hump. Empty set screen to Sims. Empty set…. It’s crazy to think the Falcons could defend Dirk’s creativity.

  29. Bucnut2 Says:

    EA- agreed. Winston is getting closer

  30. Bucs68 Says:

    Fire Koetter now. A screen to sims he should have punted on 3rd down

  31. MadMax Says:

    lol EA

  32. cmurda Says:

    25% would be remarkable but it might take 100% effort from the receivers. Get yourselves dirty M.E. and D Jax.

  33. MadMax Says:

    looks like he hurt his hamstring

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    Ryan Smith is literally the worst corner I’ve ever seen play – ever. He makes Rod “The Toast” Jones look like an all-pro. Sorry he got hurt, but he literally should have never seen the field this year.

  35. ATrain Says:

    Heck ya

    Pull a Hammy sit and collect my check

    Bucs Football

  36. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, Gruden said it looked like he couldve laid out for it and caught it….well, im not surprised….thats ME#13

  37. ATrain Says:

    Playing to not get hurt

    And collect that pay check

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    Evans could have caught the ball, you know expect for the fact he was being pulled down before the ball got there. I won’t complain too much since Grimes got away with a PI on the prior series, but to pretend Evans wasn’t being tackled on that play is ridiculous.

  39. Bayers Says:

    lol getting closer indeed

  40. MadMax Says:

    Man J. Evans is smacking hard!!! I like it!

  41. Bob in Valrico Says:

    agree ,cmurda ,what does it take to get a PI call. Evans was held and grabbed most of the route.

  42. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Evans hits like a truck. And grimes got pushed off

  43. ATrain Says:

    Who is the equipment guy

    Fire Him we slip more than a old woman on ice

  44. cmurda Says:

    Another injury. Beckwith got his ankles broke.

  45. ATrain Says:

    Put Evans on Jones and hit him HARD

  46. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith. Make sure to keep Grimes off of Julio. Great strategy. We’ll shock them.

  47. ATrain Says:

    Walking down the field

    We give 20 yards to everyone

  48. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I feel really bad for tj Ward. He would be a starter on most teams. We are just to stupid to sit Conte

  49. Bird Says:

    Adarious glanton must be cross eyed

  50. Bird Says:

    Are you kidding me ? Too easy

  51. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lmao “That was easy” Mike Smith is a joke

  52. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Ryan Smith is a turd.

  53. Easy Says:


  54. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Too easy!!!! Great play call D

  55. cmurda Says:

    That easy. Ryan Smith is useless. Mike Smith is the best

  56. MadMax Says:

    lol, D didnt have 11 on the field….REALLY? pfft

  57. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let the beating begin. TO, i mean, Winston time.

  58. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I don’t mind losing this game, I would rather not watch a blowout tho

  59. SCBucsFan Says:

    Bucs secondary sure is good at clapping their hands after they get burned again and again. I think Smith taught that.

  60. Bangkok Buc Says:

    F’in guy just hobbled off the field with a hammy injury 2 minutes ago.
    Sooooo…..lets leave him isolated one on one.

  61. SKBucsFan Says:

    Can we keep them under 40 points?

  62. EA Says:

    Who needs corners or pass rush when we got OJ Howard and don’t know what to do with him.

  63. Bucs68 Says:

    Bubble screens on 3rd down on offense. 10 guys on D!

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    Seriously, why do they keep on playing Ryan Smith? The guy is terrible, 100% of the time he’s terrible, he never makes a play on defense, he’s useless. I don’t care if he’s a good special teams gunner, that doesn’t help you when teams just throw TD after TD at him while he he stands there like a moron not able to stop anything. You will not convince me you can’t just sign a guy off the street and he wouldn’t do a better job.

  65. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Well said GOAT, all of us are so used to losing we just hate those prime time Falcon whippings.

  66. EA Says:

    Haaaa 10 men, love it.

  67. cmurda Says:

    Jameis Winston under pressure. Other Qb never under pressure. That’s the difference between our crappy team and good teams.

  68. Rrsrq Says:

    13 games in and only 10 men in on defense against the Falcons in the red zone

  69. Angry in CT Says:

    They showed they can’t count how does 10 men happen at home this is insane

  70. Lakeland Says:


  71. SCBucsFan Says:

    EA 12 men wouldn’t help

  72. Bucnut2 Says:

    If I were Brate, I would pursue Winston for trying to get me killed.

  73. MadMax Says:

    HAHAHA! Gruden just said that penalty should be on JW for throwing that ball…..think he wants to work with JW? Get outta here lol!

  74. Mcruzer Says:

    My drunk ass could have made 11 in the end zone and I have a 6 inch vert Leap.

  75. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This O is so vanilla.

  76. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice catch by Brate there.

    Oh wait…

    Anywho I’ll take the call since they didn’t call that Evans PI last time, but it’s a BS call, that was just called football before these Generation Glee fruits came along.

  77. cmurda Says:

    3rd and 1. Here’s the situation that perplexes Dirk. 1 yard

  78. Bucnut2 Says:

    Mad Max- no GOOD coach wants to work with America’s TO machine.

  79. MadMax Says:

    Great run Barber!

  80. Bird Says:

    Barber went beast mode.

  81. Lakeland Says:

    The most pathetic franchise in NFL history.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  82. cmurda Says:

    Wow. O Line does nothing but Barber just willed that tough run.

  83. Bangkok Buc Says:

    We need wayyyyy more guys like Barber!!!!

  84. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That was all barber

  85. mark2001 Says:

    Mad… you think G is going to sugarcoat Jameis poor decisions? Maybe Koetter does and that is why he has stopped developing.

  86. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow nice run by Barber and nice play by Winston – I thought there was a mix up there but that play by Winston was on purpose to get in the way.

  87. MadMax Says:

    Haha, yup Bucnut.

  88. Lakeland Says:

    Doug Evans..STFU Gruden

  89. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Looks like our trolls have arrived.

  90. SB Says:

    Never Ever seen a run like that since Alstott left.

  91. Matts17 Says:

    No way that should’ve been a penalty on the Brate hit. Can’t hit anyone anymore, just another reason people are tuning out the NFL.

  92. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston put the ball right on Brate’s hands – and then Brate dropped the ball – and it’s Winston’s fault? LOL! Give it a rest you bores.

  93. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    JUICE MAN!!!!!!

  94. Bird Says:

    Dang. Hope he is ok. Charley hoarse in thigh

  95. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice run by OJ there – some good plays overcoming Dirk’s inept play calling.

  96. MadMax Says:

    GJ Howard!….but he’s hurt.

  97. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Don’t lie. Blount has a run vs GB that looked like the Beast quake

  98. cmurda Says:

    Great drive by JW. We are dropping like flies. It’s been like this all year. I think Dirk’s soft practice and training camp was a bad idea.

  99. Matts17 Says:

    Players dropping like flys.

  100. Bird Says:

    Great play call. Wide open.

  101. J dubb Says:

    5 wide set doesn’t include Howard or Godwin, y? Sims is not a better matchup and neither is hump….should be Evans, Jackson, Godwin, brate, and Howard…

  102. Angry in CT Says:

    Great Play By Howard they have two great TEs need to use them more

  103. Lakeland Says:

    Over a 100 million people are trolling the Bucs. You suppose to troll perennial losers. Win the division, then people would quit trolling these bums. Or just quit stinking the field so much and win some games.

  104. Bucnut2 Says:

    Great drive by Winston???? REALLY???

  105. Bird Says:

    yah. Koetter is calling a terrible game.

    Guys are wide open for Jameis all over the field.

    Keep blaming koetter though. Too funny.

  106. SB Says:

    Mike Evans GOAT Says:
    December 18th, 2017 at 9:01 pm
    Don’t lie. Blount has a run vs GB that looked like the Beast quake
    True Dat! I am just looking for something to celebrate!!!

  107. Rrsrq Says:

    There’s your #1 pick right there

  108. Rod Munch Says:

    Sims is actually an excellent receiver out of the backfield, the issue is Dirk lining him up out wide and taking away the possibility of the run. On that 3rd and 1 play there on the OJ TD, I think the Falcons were shocked that Dirk didn’t have JW in the shotgun and an empty set, they were totally caught off guard on that. I guess 13 weeks of setup was worth getting that one TD right there!

  109. mark2001 Says:

    Munch…it is because if you deliver a ball with two Defenders teeing up on you in a position where they can clock you, they will be glad to oblige. And they did…fortunately Brate dropped his head, from a penalty standpoint. Hope he didn’t get a concussion.

  110. Bird Says:

    Guys are hurt. Its koetter fault.

    Guys missing open guys. Its koetter fault.

    Defense playing bad. Its koetter fault.

  111. cmurda Says:

    @Bucnut. Yes. Great drive by Winston. Nice throw to D Jax and nice patience. He found OJ through his progressions on his 3rd or 4th read. Be fair if you are going to criticize every mistake he makes.

  112. Jeagan1999 Says:

    OJ Howard is such a good young TE! He’s going to be one of the gust in the league for a long time!

  113. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I figured. Blount was my favorite player back then. Love that attitude.

  114. unbelievable Says:

    Bucnut wanting so desperately for Jameis to play poorly.

    What a pathetic excuse for a fan.

  115. Bucnut2 Says:

    C- you forgot to mention he almost got Brate killed

  116. cmurda Says:

    Our defense is a sieve. 13 yards before Freeman is even touched.

  117. mark2001 Says:

    Bird…ever see Aaron Rodgers throw a ball to a receiver where they are set up for a big hit? It rarely happens. That is what Gruden was talking about.

  118. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This team is so soft

  119. Rod Munch Says:

    Is Joe Dirt active tonight?

  120. unbelievable Says:

    That was soooooooooooo pathetic.

    7 missed tackles?

  121. Rrsrq Says:

    Not sure if there is a DC out there that can coach guys that can’t tackle

  122. RawBucFan Says:

    That defense is HORRENDOUS!!!!!!!!!!

  123. DB55 Says:

    That block by jw though. Haha

  124. Rod Munch Says:

    Did I ever see Favre throw the ball to a guy who would get blown up on the catch? Yes, every single week that happened. That’s called football. You’re a wearing a helmet for a reason sweetheart.

  125. cmurda Says:

    Hey, Bucnut we just scored man because of JW being smooth. JW has about 2 secs to throw and Brate had a bit of breathing room. Sure he would have taken that back if he could but come on bro. Of course, our defense is getting abused easily through the ground less than minutes later.

  126. RawBucFan Says:


  127. DB55 Says:

    Amateurs – this team is funny looking.

  128. mark2001 Says:

    Bnut… you are talking about the nuances of being a good QB. Obviously some don’t know that a QB can lead a receiver into coverage or out of coverage by placement of the throw….and that the D can dictate whether a guy will get his handed to him on certain throws, even if he makes a catch.

  129. Bucnut2 Says:

    unbelievable- I want us to move on from the TO machine that is Winston. We will NEVER win consistently with him as QB. In the sense, I am the ultimate fan as i want what is in the best long term interest of the Bucs.

  130. unbelievable Says:

    Brooks and Barber look absolutely disgusted by the defense being played.

    As they should. We all are.

  131. Rod Munch Says:

    I need Sunu to be held to less than 30pts in fantasy to move on to the next round – is that too much to ask?


  132. Bucnut2 Says:

    Mark- thanks. nice to have some educated support here

  133. Bucamania Says:

    Might want to cover #11 with one of your 10 guys, Mike.

  134. cmurda Says:

    Gruden: I have no idea what defensive coverage they are running there. Neither do we Jon. Neither do we.

  135. SKBucsFan Says:

    Bucnut doesn’t have to wish it. If history is any indicator Winston WILL play poorly.

  136. mark2001 Says:

    Cmudra… how many concussions have our receivers had this year on such throws? Poor Humphrey is probably still seeing stars, from a similar throw.

  137. unbelievable Says:

    Yea I mean why bother covering Julio? Did we only have 10 on the field again?

  138. Rod Munch Says:

    Ryan Smith serving as a speed bump is the most useful defensive play he’s made all year.

  139. SCBucsFan Says:

    It is pathetic how bad this defense is

  140. Bird Says:

    Julio jones. Forget double coverage.

    How bout no coverage.

    Mike smith has some explaining to do. Just pathetic

  141. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol that’s mike smiths defense. Let’s not cover the best wr in the game.

  142. BucfaninMi Says:


  143. Rrsrq Says:


  144. cmurda Says:

    Oh Justin Evans almost had to recovery but that’s just par for the course with our team.

  145. unbelievable Says:

    The defensive line way better without McCoy

    You trolls were totally right.

  146. Lakeland Says:

    People are actually defending this team.

  147. mark2001 Says:

    Atlanta was lucky with that recovery… and if we are going to have a chance in this game, those kind of breaks need to go in our favor, not ATL’s.

  148. Bucamania Says:

    The team’s demeanor is so soft. Both sides. That’s a refecttion of the head coach.

  149. Rojas Says:

    Even Gruden making fun of our coverages lol. “ I don’t know what coverage that was. “ we badly need DE and CBs

  150. cmurda Says:

    Winston could throw for 450 yds and 3 TD’s in the first half and Bucnut would be condemning his mistakes. There’s no winning for any player on this team with some of you. Why don’t you get yourself in there Montana. You got 2 seconds to throw it before you get hit. Good luck.

  151. Rrsrq Says:

    Anyway, we can match ATL score for score

  152. Lakeland Says:

    I don’t see Trolls, I see realistic people predicting this bum team.

  153. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    These fans on here rooting for JW to fail are pathetic. Toxic fan base that doesn’t deserve to win anything.

  154. gilhealy Says:

    Hey Bucnut, Mark2001, madmax, EA, who’s the pivot man in your circle jerk?

  155. Rod Munch Says:

    The fans need to start a Joe Dirt chant.

  156. SB Says:

    unbelievable Says:
    December 18th, 2017 at 9:15 pm
    The defensive line way better without McCoy

    You trolls were totally right.
    As UnBelievable as that sounds there is some Merit to that. Seems as if they don’t know how to double team someone now.

  157. unbelievable Says:

    Team is so sloppy.

  158. Bucnut2 Says:

    I don’t understand why we EVER bring it out of the end zone on a kick off. We almost never make it to the 25

  159. EA Says:

    haha yeah, people are actually calling the local sports radio asking to bring Dirk back.

  160. DB55 Says:

    gl stand looked better

  161. Bucnut2 Says:

    gilhealy- are you applying for the job?

  162. Rod Munch Says:

    F you refs you pieces of trash.

  163. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Wow they call that push off? But grimes got blown into next week?

  164. Lakeland Says:

    Only good teams get the calls.

  165. cmurda Says:

    Get him Gruden. That was a P##sy call on Evans. The refs adding to our misery is just lovely.

  166. DB55 Says:

    Dan Marino wow

  167. MadMax Says:

    DANG SIMMS!!!!!!!! Nice!

  168. Bird Says:

    What the hell happened to Charles simms

  169. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Look at sims with the Peyton Barber attitude

  170. Easy Says:

    Lol no way that was Simms!!

  171. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    He was down. FML

  172. Easy Says:

    And his knee was down lol

  173. cmurda Says:

    That will be overturned. The pers foul still stands?

  174. mark2001 Says:

    ME Goat…what do you mean? I think those that don’t want Jameis to succeed are few and far between. It is just that we are tired of lousy play on both sides of the ball. But just think how great we would be doing if Martin was starting tonight.

  175. MadMax Says:

    Well dmn, its gonna come back….he was down, crap!

  176. SKBucsFan Says:

    Hike the ball!!!

  177. SB Says:

    Bullsh!t call on ME13. Now we will be fukd on the challenge.

  178. Lakeland Says:

    The Falcons need Rah, he has football knowledge

  179. Matts17 Says:

    No Buc coach sees that to hurry them to line of scrimmage? Clueless.

  180. BucfaninMi Says:


  181. Lakeland Says:

    Good call Rah

  182. Bayers Says:

    Every time we make a play it’s a flag

  183. gilhealy Says:

    No, just laughing at you and your girlfriends.

  184. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    What are you talking about with Martin?

  185. DB55 Says:

    That sums up the entire season doesn’t it?

  186. Bayers Says:

    Every time jameis completes deep it’s a flag

  187. Buc4life24 Says:

    How doesn’t our staff and QB not hike the ball quickly to avoid the challenge?!?! C’mon have football awareness!

  188. Lakeland Says:

    That’s 2 personal foul penalties on Ricardo Allen

  189. Bucnut2 Says:

    Winston Killed Brate

  190. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Damn, good game thus far bad breaks. Good play calling by Dirk. Mike Smith has to go. Too many fundamental errors. It doesn’t matter if the back up lb’s are in. Missed tackles are unacceptable

  191. MadMax Says:

    go F yourself gillhealy

  192. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Great touch on that throw by JW

  193. Bucnut2 Says:

    Good throw JW

  194. MadMax Says:

    JW is actually looking good tonight….now if he can just keep it up.

  195. mark2001 Says:

    I’m saying that we started Martin for far too many games, when we could have started or at least given more playing time for Barber since game one.

  196. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Love the play calls

  197. Pa Privateer Says:

    It is your time Auclair!!!!!!!!!!!! we need you to show up!

  198. unbelievable Says:

    What up SB?

    I fked up in the pigskin Pickem last week! Was in 1st for a few weeks there…

    Terrible PI call on Evans by the way. They’ve been letting Alford mug him all
    The way down his routes.

  199. King C Says:

    Is it just me or is the playcalling actually good tonight so far

  200. BucfaninMi Says:

    No other team has more injuries than the Bucs, every week someone goes down.

  201. DislocatedBucsFan Says:


  202. cmurda Says:

    Alan Cross isn’t the greatest fullback but that dude is sacrificing the heck out of his body to throw some nice blocks.

  203. Bayers Says:

    Let’s go Auclair we need you

  204. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    That touchdown that we had is the same play we’ve scored on a few times. The play calling is good atleast offensively.

  205. MadMax Says:

    Great catch Cross….good throw JW

  206. DB55 Says:

    DB55 Says:
    August 20th, 2017 at 9:59 pm
    Alan Cross = team MVP. You heard it here first.

  207. Bird Says:

    Now that was a good throw

  208. MadMax Says:

    Yeah they’ll lose that challenge!

  209. BucfaninMi Says:

    Coming back

  210. cmurda Says:

    OMG can we get a play that doesn’t get challenged and overturned.

  211. cmurda Says:

    Nice. Screw you Quinn.

  212. Rod Munch Says:

    Maybe Dirk knew Gruden would be up in the booth and would be criticizing his normal God awful play calling, so he actually spent a few mins on a gameplan for the first time all season.

  213. DB55 Says:

    Bucnut2 Says:
    December 18th, 2017 at 9:26 pm
    Winston Killed Brate
    Bruh I’m crying. And the comment about taking the ball out of the end zone is correct also. Noticed that about 2 months ago.

  214. MadMax Says:

    Great decision making JW

  215. cmurda Says:

    JW is ballin. Admit it haters. (Please don’t turn the ball over JW)

  216. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Another great play by JW on a broken play

  217. SKBucsFan Says:

    That was a better attempt at trying to hike the ball quickly. Keep the drive alive and score just to show ATL’s coaches that they wasted their challenges

    Go Bucs!

    Alan Cross = team MVP. You heard it here first

  219. MadMax Says:

    Barber was down.

  220. cmurda Says:

    Oh come on Barber. You were doing so well.

  221. DB55 Says:

    Jesus mercy christ merry Christmas

  222. MadMax Says:

    oops, no he wasnt

  223. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    ATL ball

  224. cmurda Says:

    That ball was out. Unfriggingbelievable.

  225. cmurda Says:

    That must have been Winston’s fault too.

  226. Rod Munch Says:

    There’s your boy Barber, a basic north/south runner who fumbles when it matters most.

  227. Mike in LOL Says:

    Damn we fumble so freaking often!!!!

  228. DB55 Says:

    Gruden taking the high road. Lol

  229. unbelievable Says:

    Seems about right for us.

  230. MadMax Says:

    I dont hate him cmurda, when he’s good I’ll call it, and when he’s bad I’ll call it. Hope he can keep playing like that.


    fkn fumble!!!!!!

  232. Matts17 Says:

    Wow. Just wow.

  233. Defense Rules Says:

    Great line by Chucky: “The Bucs’ self-destruction has nothing to do with coaching. You’ve gotta hold onto the football.”

  234. SCBucsFan Says:

    This team continues to find new ways to hurt their fans

  235. Architek Says:


  236. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Must have been a bad hand off by Winston that made him fumble

  237. mike10 Says:

    God we suck

  238. unbelievable Says:

    Can’t blame that on the coach or gm. Or Jameis.

  239. Leebucsfan Says:

    Like i said ill be going to sleep soon

  240. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, Joe, that won’t help Barber get more carries.

  241. Bayers Says:

    Buc life we can’t catch a break for some reason

  242. cmurda Says:

    I know Max. I call JW out when he’s not playing well too. It’s pretty hard to be successful as a QB when you are getting blasted every dropback and an invisible defense. He’s been great tonight.

  243. Lakeland Says:

    The Falcons might drop another 7

  244. Grt1 Says:

    Yea it’s Jameis faulted

  245. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Why is Julio Jones standing alone in the middle of the field. WOW!

  246. MadMax Says:

    Why the F is JJ always open? wtf man!

  247. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lmao. Let’s just never come JJ


    WHO HAS JULIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  249. Mcruzer Says:

    Good run but somebody with a lot more football knowledge than me tell me why receivers playing a yard back from the line of scrimmage doesn’t telegraph a run? Or does that just mean our o line needs all the help they can get?

  250. DB55 Says:

    B55 Says:
    December 4th, 2017 at 4:46 pm
    I believe barber will do well until he gets one or two game tapes on film and then dc’s will be able to game plan for him.

    Then I look at guys like Alvin Kamara and I’m like yea he’d never get past the TB high morality club with that grill and neck tattoos. A non-starter in fact. But wtfdik.

  251. unbelievable Says:

    Julio with no defender around him. Again. Surprise.

  252. Lakeland Says:

    Julio Jones must smell bad, the Buc defenders are afraid to go near him

  253. ColoradoBucs Says:

    It’s a Bucs life for me.

  254. Defense Rules Says:

    Finally figured out the Bucs’ defense. They’re playing 7-on-7 football, but unfortunately the Falcons are putting 11 on the field.

  255. cmurda Says:

    Ryan Smith is the guy everybody should be blasting. That dude is hot garbage. VH3 is light years better.

  256. Lakeland Says:

    lol at this sideshow

  257. DB55 Says:

    I think the glaziers refuse to pay their nfl his fees and the refs make them lose in the same manner that Kraft gets all the calls his way.

  258. unbelievable Says:


    Freeman must stink too cuz he keeps running through 7-8 defenders at a time.

  259. Matts17 Says:

    Wiiiide open.

  260. Bird Says:

    Tj ward is good and terrible.

  261. gilhealy Says:

    No QB could survive with the pressure of having to score every time you have the ball because your defense gives up the booty every time. Atlanta can do anything they want.

  262. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Tj Ward with the break up

  263. MadMax Says:

    Holy jit, theres a rare sighting….JJ Doubled!!!!! cant believe it!

  264. Lakeland Says:

    Only Matt Ryan can slow the Falcons against the Bucs

  265. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lol 57 yards

  266. unbelievable Says:

    Why did we cut Matt Bryant?

    I’ve been asking for 5 years now.

  267. DB55 Says:

    Who said the dline playing worse? Idk. No sacks yet. Geraldini would have been good for at least one by now. Mnf has lots of cameras.

  268. cmurda Says:

    Matt Bryant. Yup, that guy just blasts a 57 yard FG. DRAFT TIME YET?

  269. unbelievable Says:

    lol Gruden is wondering the same thing as me.

  270. Architek Says:

    Can’t take this team too serious just laugh guys

  271. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    God we need Gruden.

  272. SCBucsFan Says:

    If we signed Bryant he would miss extra points

  273. mike10 Says:

    Donovan Smith is a hot fat pile of garbage

  274. Lakeland Says:

    The Saints signed George Johnson on Dec 12 and he had a sack on Sunday

  275. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    So much space on that screen and only got 3 yards

  276. Patrick Says:

    57 yard field goal by Matt Bryant – thanks for letting him go back in 2009 Dummynick

  277. mike10 Says:

    Absolutely gave up on that block

  278. Lakeland Says:

    Akeem Spence had a sack Saturday night

  279. Rod Munch Says:

    Even our calls are BS – instead of PI we get a holding call – so it’s 5 yards instead of 25.

  280. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    The Falvon kicket is an example of the asanine decisions the Bucs make, they released him…hmmmmmm

  281. Season Is Over Says:

    Mr. Magoo strikes again.

  282. Cgmaster27 Says:

    Dont mind bucnut everyone, he’s still salty his homie mariota is garbage this year.

  283. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Your an idiot. It was only a pick cuz of the hold.

  284. SB Says:

    THIS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Is where a “Franchise QB gets us back in the game!!
    Outside of that I don’t want to hear it anymore

  285. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Falcon’s kicker. Why was he released?

  286. unbelievable Says:

    Dirk forgot how to play calls again. Here we go.

  287. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That was a dumb play call

  288. Rrsrq Says:

    Everybody knows that is DK favorite play

  289. BucThis Says:


  290. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    What is it? 3rd and 10?

  291. Rod Munch Says:

    You guys are wrong, Dirk’s favorite call is run up the middle on first down.

  292. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Not fantasy football…QB execute…

  293. gilhealy Says:

    here comes the bum rush. JW will have maybe 2 seconds to get this one off.

  294. BucfaninMi Says:

    This painful, listening to and watching this teams past and current mistakes.

  295. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Was that Winston’s fault trolls?

  296. Rod Munch Says:

    No more throwing the ball to white guys.

  297. Lakeland Says:

    The Buc has a long history of getting rid of good players. It goes back 35 years ago. When they let Doug Williams walk, and then Steve young a few years later.

  298. cmurda Says:

    JW has done everything a man can do. Alan Cross is having a good game and then he drops that. This team just can’t buy a break.

  299. unbelievable Says:

    unbelievable Says:
    December 18th, 2017 at 9:37 pm
    Can’t blame that on the coach or gm. Or Jameis.


  300. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    So what do you expect ALL DE’S ARE OUT…AND BACK UP OL?

  301. Rob Says:

    Rout is on. Bucs ineptness rearing its head….as usual. God we suck. Ryan going for the jugular here

  302. Rod Munch Says:

    Undrafted free agents like Barber and Cross were UDFA for a reason. Sure they might make a good play here or there, and then they’ll look like Ryan Smith on others.

  303. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Can we cover any1?

  304. cmurda Says:

    Our defense is unfair. The scheme sucks, the coach sucks, and the 15 yard cushion sucks.

  305. O town back again Says:

    @Rod Munch…. kind of racist man

  306. mike10 Says:

    I expect an article tomorrow voting Barber out for next weeks game Joe. That fumble cost us the game

  307. EA Says:

    WTF was that by #59 ?

  308. MadMax Says:

    Really rod? lol. Ok, ME13 looks more white than black so, yeah sure!!!

  309. cmurda Says:

    Davante Bond who? You won’t hear his name because for some reason he didn’t blow Matt Ryan up on the backside.

  310. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Fire smith at halftime

  311. Rrsrq Says:

    😢 😢 😢

  312. Rob Says:

    Zero pass rush. All day to throw. Broken record. Broken defense. Fire these coaches that run this $hit show

  313. Bird Says:

    This is The Jameis Winston we need. Great 1st half.

    And what has been wrong with playcalling? Moving up and down field. We got the turnovers. And drops. It’s funny all the people who says it must be winstons fault Turn around and blame koetter for every aspect of the game.

    Keep on keeping on yah hypocrites.

  314. Rod Munch Says:

    O… I’m 98% white so it’s OK.

  315. JameisWin55 Says:

    Seeing the team on national tv shows how far we are from being even moderate contenders. 10 man on the field for td, repetitive play calling, fumbling on the 5, wide open receivers, no pressure on Matt Ryan while our QB runs for his life we suck in both offensive and defensive trenches we just look bad. At this rate we may scare Gruden away.

  316. Season Is Over Says:

    I don’t think Alexander has made a meaningful play all year. Just like McCoy.

  317. ChanEpic Says:

    This is the worst defense I have ever seen.

  318. MadMax Says:


  319. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    Wheres chris godwin?….

    Oh yeah…gunner on special teams

    Alan cross the playmaker

  320. buccadawg Says:

    i know this team has injuries but good gosh. No pressure on Qb at all. This is not just bad football again the bucs off. has scored their onr td. for this game

  321. MadMax Says:

    Whew!!!lol, nice save Caleb!!!

  322. Season Is Over Says:

    Koetter has the thousand yard stare.

  323. Lakeland Says:

    Just take a knee

    They forgot how to kneel

  324. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:


  325. Sickofit aka Shanemarco Says:

    #BringBackGruden….we can win more games while pissing off Steve Dumig all at the same time.

  326. mike10 Says:

    It’s so hard being a Bucs fan.

  327. Season Is Over Says:

    Nice play Mr. Magoo.

  328. Bird Says:

    98 % butt munch

  329. ScottyinFatAntonio Says:

    Most NFL players would be playing thru these injuries. Not our BOYS!

  330. cmurda Says:

    JW 13 for 15 with his 2 incomplete passes being a long one that M.E> should have at least made an effort on and Alan Cross dropping a pass right to him.

  331. MadMax Says:

    Well, I hope theres video of the ring of honor for Gruden to watch later….bspn is jitting all over it.

  332. Rod Munch Says:

    Sunu held scoreless in the first half… the Bucs just need to hold him to less than 30 fantasy points (ESPN PPR scoring) in the second half and I make it to the second round of the playoffs.

    Here’s hoping they don’t put Ryan Smith on Sunu or my season will be ruined.

  333. MadMax Says:

    “that I can watch later”

  334. Lakeland Says:

    Thank God I’m no longer a Buc fan. My blood pressure is at 115/75, it use to be 160/110, my total cholesterol is under 200, my A1C is 5.2. I’ve been born again since I quit being a Buc fan.

  335. Rrsrq Says:

    Looking forward to a big second half from the Bucs

  336. Season Is Over Says:

    The D is playing better without McCoy.

  337. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The only difference at half time is a Peyton Barber fumble turning into a 57yd Falcon FG. should be 14-14

  338. Boblindsey Says:

    Dude the people on this board are such mouth breathers. JAMO kills it first half and they still hate on him. We are the walking wounded!!! We are losing because literally we have lost half of our starters!!! God people are idiots.

  339. Rod Munch Says:

    This is Gruden’s biggest honor ever since he’ll never be a HOF’er like Dungy.

  340. ChanEpic Says:

    I think Smitty thinks he’s still coaching Julio Jones, and… Is doing a fabulous job at it.

  341. Joe Says:

    One fumble. I hope that rule broken was a doozy

  342. Bird Says:

    The Bull Brad Johnson

  343. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, Gruden totally shunned Martin Gramatica.

  344. cmurda Says:

    BSPN just cut of the Deckerhoff call of our 1st TD with Brad throwing it. Are you kidding me? I don’t want to hear Suzy’s annoying voice.

  345. Rrsrq Says:

    @ Lakeland,

    Is that the key to better health

  346. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Then go away.

  347. AceofAerospace Says:

    No doubt in my mind who our next coach is.

  348. cmurda Says:

    Let me know how it goes Lakeland. I like to torture myself and will always be a Bucs fan.

  349. JameisWin55 Says:

    Wow ESPN call the ceremony short even sports companies don’t respect us

  350. Buc_The_World Says:

    F@*k firing Mike Smith, he should just be an honorable man and resign!!!! Save us the trouble, he know he’s garbage.

  351. WeAreLost Says:

    Bucs fan for life!!!

  352. Season Is Over Says:

    ESPN doesn’t want to lose Gruden.

  353. EA Says:

    Keyshawn wasn’t mentioned either, Gruden must still hold a grudge

  354. Bobby M. Says:

    Grudens still got the juice!

  355. Sydney Says:

    “Rrsrq Says:
    December 18th, 2017 at 10:03 pm
    Looking forward to a big second half from the Bucs”

    But this is about what you’ll see….31-14 Atlanta

  356. J dubb Says:

    No mccardell or keyshawn mention…..who was the guy at then that ran into the goalpost and almost knocked himself out, lol

  357. Architek Says:

    Wow do I miss the compeptive days of Bucs

  358. Season Is Over Says:

    I couldn’t hear the stick carriers. Once again they fade into a footnote.

  359. Rod Munch Says:

    Gruden isn’t going anywhere short of getting fired from TV and not being able to find a job anywhere else. Gruden is all about Gruden, whatever gets him the most attention – he loves the attention he gets from having his name in the news, that’s why he never plays it down.

    With that said the last playoff game Gruden won was 15 years ago – and once he dismantled Dungy’s team we saw what he did. While he’d be a massive upgrade over Dirk – you can say that about a lot of coaches. The stability that would come from someone like Gruden, knowing the money you pay means he’d be around for 4 years at least, that’s his biggest selling point.

  360. Bucs68 Says:

    I’m not a fire coach guy, but on one 3rd down we don’t cover Julio. On another 3rd down we have 10 on the field. It’s remarkable.

  361. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    POoor JW….where is all his weapons and OL?

  362. MadMax Says:

    Nice return quizz

  363. Season Is Over Says:

    Rod Munch is a clueless Buc fan.

  364. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Great throw. Great catch. It’s a bucs life

  365. MadMax Says:

    And another PI by ME13…..dude, just stop!!!!!

  366. cmurda Says:

    My goodness Mike Evans. Make the play without pushing off.

  367. Rod Munch Says:

    F these refs, Evans is being held on every G-D play and then they call that ticky tack BS.

    Someone inject these refs with HIV.

  368. Rrsrq Says:

    Where’s Chris Godwin

  369. unbelievable Says:


  370. cmurda Says:

    This is a hot mess. Add a Brate false start to the list. Blow up coaching staff and let’s get ready for next year.

  371. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    If ME13 played for NYG he would get all the calls

  372. unbelievable Says:

    That was a push off by Evans. But they’re letting Alford hang all over him.

    Call this sh!t evenly.

  373. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This line is Dodo

  374. Season Is Over Says:

    Koetter really has control of his team. Nowhere to be seen.

  375. Swanee Says:

    M E. #13 is
    Killing the Bucs. Leads the league by far in offensive pass interference. His behavior is awful. Undisciplined and get rid of him. He is more costly to this team and his attitude is terrible.

  376. King C Says:

    Gruden was undone bc of all the draft picks we gave up to get him

  377. Rod Munch Says:

    Mike Evans – You’re right, if Evans played nearly anywhere but Tampa he wouldn’t have that BS called against him.

  378. Bird Says:

    Mike Evans is Shaq

    Just bigger than guys. He doesn’t get calls and whenhe touches a guy , the dude acts like a B

  379. King C Says:

    Gave up too many picks for Gruden. Killed the team

  380. cmurda Says:

    Dirk has no prayer to survive until next year. Embarrassed on National TV again. It doesn’t matter if he called a decent game or not. He has no clue with personnel as Hump is in and Godwin is not in. Pure stupidity.

  381. Architek Says:

    I don’t think that was a PI…

  382. mike10 Says:

    Who’s ready to watch this defense get carved up? Take note of that clean white uniform Matty Ice is wearing.

  383. unbelievable Says:

    @Bird 💯 on Evans.

    He’s gonna have to learn how to play around that, because the refs never give him sh!t

  384. Season Is Over Says:

    Haha. Buc always shoot themselves in the foot.

  385. Bucs14 Says:

    This team at this moment is awful. They are playing too many guys with little experience, Atlanta has superior athletes who are better coached. Nuff said.

  386. cmurda Says:

    Architek. It was definitely an acting job but ATL gets away with it and M.E. gets no calls. With that said Evans needs to know that is going to get called. Fair or not, that’s how it is. Julio Jones can do that all day every day and he does but M.E. isn’t there yet.

  387. c-spann Says:

    When is Godwin gonna get used

  388. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    Trade ME for a 2nd rounder…

    This chump wants more than d hopkins money???

    Hey lake

    If koetter stays next year, im out also along with all of tampa

  389. Rod Munch Says:

    King – Gruden ruined the team when he cut Lynch and let Sapp walk because he claimed the salary cap was killing him, yet he had plenty of money to sign an injured RB to a huge deal and sign a bunch of injured OL. The draft narrative is complete BS – the team fell apart one year after he was in control – how exactly would a rookie have changed that? The team won because of Monte Kiffin – in fact Dirk had a dramatically better season than Gruden ever had on offense just 2 years ago, that’s why he became the HC. Gruden is ridiculously overrated – the Bucs defense was so amazingly good that it didn’t matter who the Bucs hired, they could have hired Steve Spurrier that offseason and they’d still have won the SB.

  390. Patrick Says:

    The 2002 Bucs. What a great time that was to be a Bucs fan! And to see what a disgrace this team has been for the last 8 years. Sad.

  391. mark2001 Says:

    Listen closely… I’ll tell you why Mike Evans is having problems with the questionable officiating…

    It is because his HC won’t go out and let the refs know they are “mistaken”, and read them the riot act. When a coach won’t take the heat and accept responsibility to stick up for his players with vocal “enthusiasm”, the players will take it upon themselves. Koetter wears a great deal of this.

  392. J dubb Says:

    I almost feel bad for Licht…he drafts weapons for Winston; Howard and Godwin, then koetter doesn’t utilize them

  393. Fire the glazers Says:

    This is such BUL$#!t… As a Bucs fan, I am not surprised, but I am very disappointed that we regress so much faster than we ever attempt to progress… I can’t watch this game. This team is sooooooo immature and weak minded.

  394. Season Is Over Says:

    Rod Munch can’t rewrite history. True Buc fans know the real stories. Everything he just said is wrong. Clueless.

  395. Rrsrq Says:

    Will Gholston with a pass rush when the offensive lineman moved

  396. unbelievable Says:

    Glanton plays with some anger.

  397. Rob Says:

    Candy a$$ defense strikes again. You guys suck. Ayer actually brushed against Ryan? Epic pass rush

  398. mark2001 Says:

    Munch…this team has consistently under preformed. This offense has a great deal of talent and should be much better. No doubt.

  399. J dubb Says:

    Gruden wanted to keep those guys, blame kiffin who thought booger McFarland could do the things Sapp did

  400. Bird Says:

    Cmon Jameis

  401. Rod Munch Says:

    Season – Do me a favor and go tell your “real” history to your buddies down at the local rest stop, just stick your mouth into that talking holes built into the stalls and you spread the truth brother. LOL!

  402. Season Is Over Says:

    Sorry, no one is going to believe your revisionist history. Nice try though.

  403. King C Says:

    I’m not a Gruden fan. But I will admit his push helped us win Super bowl in way Dingy didn’t

  404. Rod Munch Says:

    dubb – At the time Sapp said that he called Gruden a bunch of times asking him to make an offer to keep him and Gruden never returned his called – then after a while he finally then went onto the market. Gruden and the Bucs didn’t even bother returning his call… but yeah, Gruden wanted to keep him. Gruden ran the team after he got McKay fired – and he ran it all right, ran it right into the ground.

  405. mark2001 Says:

    First rule of management or coaching, on the job or on the field….you stick up for your guys….take whatever grief it involves. And deal with them in house. If you don’t, you leave it for them to try to solve their problems themselves. And how many times has Koetter done just that…sat back and not even being aware what was going on with his guys in times where they felt they had to take things in their own hands?

  406. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    JUST GOT MOSSED!!!!!!!

  407. Rod Munch Says:

    Now wait 45 seconds to see if the refs will screw us out of this call.

  408. Bird Says:

    All you mike Evans haters eat some D

  409. BucThis Says:

    Trade who?????

  410. Bird Says:

    He is best player on team. Open every player.

  411. Rrsrq Says:

    Best play all year

  412. Rod Munch Says:

    The refs can’t take it off the board during the commercial break can they?

  413. cmurda Says:

    All I know is JW is getting me hyped. That dude refuses to quit and he’s throwing great deep. Nice to see one that didn’t get called back. Atta boy M.E.

  414. Bucs14 Says:

    Is this team about to make this look like they could win and then tank in 4th?

  415. Architek Says:

    Man if Wentz had a WR like Evans or he played in a real offense…

  416. EA Says:

    So Evans has the c patch but not Winston, I wonder what happened there.

  417. cmurda Says:

    @Rrsrq I might have to agree with you. Bonus was it was a beautiful spiral too.

  418. King C Says:

    JW throwing well even w no TEs or Djax

  419. Patrick Says:

    @Rod Munch……you should ask Bill Parcells why he declined to coach the Bucs back in ‘02. The team was about to enter salary cap hell, which Gruden ultimately took the fall for when he became coach. Several players had to be cut (Sapp, Lynch) being the big ones. It was gonna happen no matter who the coach was.

    Gruden actually won 2 division championships after the Super Bowl and finished with 4 winning seasons out of 7. Not perfect, but hey his entire tenure wasn’t a complete failure like some fans deem it to be. What exactly have we done since he got canned?

    That 10 straight seasons of no playoffs has sure been fun has it?

  420. Broy34WantsGrudenCoachinJameis Says:

    Two things : keep doubting the 23 yr old.
    2nd : he’s playing outstanding. Far better than Mariota has played all year

  421. Bucs14 Says:

    @Architek. Imagine if he played with Brady, Roethlisburger, Brees….?

  422. DB55 Says:

    Are they in a prevent defense?

  423. Bird Says:

    Moss said in pregame Just throw it up to mike Evans

    Open every play.

  424. Conspiracy Says:

    Evans and Jameis didn’t do their usual touchdown celebration. He walked strait to the sideline. Is Jameis losing the locker room?? More news @ 11

  425. Rod Munch Says:

    Again I point out JW has always played well against Atlanta, he’s 3-1 and has throw on average for something like 290 yards and 3 TDs per game against them. Anyone surprised Winston is playing well against Atlanta, it only shows how they don’t know Bucs football. This is no surprise.

  426. Bob in Valrico Says:

    This is definitely one of Jameis ‘s best games this year. Pocket presence and escapabiltity is what I expected . Great pass and catch by Evans.and Jameis.Get Godwin off special teams to get more weapons.

  427. mark2001 Says:

    Munch…. you forget that Warren was nearing the end of his career…and it was time for Booger to set up as the heir apparent. Of course there was only one Warren Sapp, or at least a once in a generation talent at his position. And as far as Lynch goes…I get that…his injury was bad and he risked permanent and severe injury by continuing to play. Sure, John went on to play well in Denver. But had he ended up crippled here because Gruden just kept playing him, I don’t know if we would have ever gotten over it.

  428. cmurda Says:

    There’s nothing Jameis can do about the non-existent pass rush and defense

  429. WeAreLost Says:

    Can’t wait until they fix the D next year.

  430. Rod Munch Says:

    Patrick – Parcells didn’t want to coach the team because he didn’t want to coach the team, just like in 1996 when the Bucs offered him the job and he turned it down. There is no salary cap hell when you’re giving $5-million (a lot at the time) to Charlie Garner. Gruden made it known he was going to win on offense… and the Bucs never did. Gruden’s last playoff win was in his first season and he never came close again to winning one.

  431. cmurda Says:

    I hate to say this but Kwon has been pitiful again. There’s something wrong with this guy

  432. MadMax Says:

    @ D guys just slammed into each other trying to get Ryan!! Dang man!

  433. ARGH_M8E Says:


  434. Bird Says:

    How did we miss that. Dang. That looked bad for glanton

  435. gilhealy Says:

    Keystone Kops

  436. EA Says:

    Wow embarrassing to watch, pathetic

  437. Rod Munch Says:

    Watching Matt Ryan run is like watching Mike Glennon run…

  438. cmurda Says:

    This is sad. Brutal injury from 2 of our guys colliding with each other. This is absurd.

  439. Bucs14 Says:

    Man but this D is beat up. We got to be near the end of defensive players. We may see some offensive guys on D!

  440. Rrsrq Says:

    A microcosm of the Bucs pass rush right there

  441. Rod Munch Says:

    Bring in Joe Dirt!

  442. gilhealy Says:

    cmurda, I was thinking the same thing. keep your feet and make the tackle. what’s this diving crap all the time. wrap him up.

  443. Season Is Over Says:

    Rod Munch is an absolutely clueless Buc fan. I’m willing to bet a blind Dungy worshipper. Keep digging that hole.

  444. Bird Says:

    Man. We are down about 10 guys. Unhurd of

  445. Sid Says:

    He never came close to one except Edell Sheapard dropping TDs in the end zone to win the game.

  446. Rod Munch Says:

    Season – Speaking of hole, there’s a glorious one that is missing you right now. LOL!

  447. DB55 Says:

    Wow I see 2 guys fighting trying to make a play and you guys are like errrrr they suck jc you guys suck

  448. EA Says:

    Joe Dirt time

  449. MadMax Says:

    Looks like Glanton broke his leg in that collison.

  450. DB55 Says:

    Chris Conte highlight reel includes 86 of those hits

  451. DB55 Says:


  452. Rod Munch Says:

    DB55 – Being a speed bump is a hit? LOL!

  453. DB55 Says:

    That’s all he’s ever been. How he’s an nfl safety is beyond me

  454. gilhealy Says:

    conte will stand his ground.

  455. cmurda Says:

    @DB55. I don’t know if you meant me but I’m not basking with that injury. It just hurts to see us miss like that and as a result a guy gets hurt. Guys are dropping like flies. It’s tough to watch. Our defense is getting run on easily and Matty Ice has not been good.

  456. Bucs14 Says:

    Man these backups are bad.

  457. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m sick of this preseason football, I want to see the starters play.

  458. DB55 Says:

    December 18th, 2017 at 10:37 pm
    How did we miss that. Dang. That looked bad for glanton

    Watching Matt Ryan run is like watching Mike Glennon run…

  459. Season Is Over Says:

    Conte is playing his last games as a Buc.

  460. cmurda Says:

    Keep him out of the endzone. Come on D.

  461. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That mic guy. Lol

  462. Rod Munch Says:

    We say this is the last we’ll see of Conte every season – then when you think you got rid of him he’s back, like a case of herpes.

  463. cmurda Says:

    Beckwith is starting to scare me. Any move on this guy and he gets juked. Are you serious that Matt Ryan just did that to you?

  464. MadMax Says:

    this D is tired….slow a$$sed Ryan running for a first…..jeeze!

  465. Capt.Tim Says:

    “ theres just no pass rush whatsoever”
    And that’s on a play we blitzed two linebackers.

    Perfectly sums up this entire pathetic team/ season

  466. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Still can’t belive BSPN cur GRUDES short, smh! Love ya CHUCKY!!!

  467. gilhealy Says:

    DB, Keystone Kops describes this defense as a whole. No one is relishing injuries.

  468. WeAreLost Says:

    Conte such a piece of shat lol

  469. DB55 Says:

    That’s a hold baby ✊🏾

  470. cmurda Says:

    We made the stop but it’s because Matt Ryan is making the wrong reads. We again had trouble getting the right amount of guys on the field. Whoa. FG blocked? Wow.

  471. DB55 Says:

    Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Yea baby

  472. MadMax Says:

    OHHHHH! Blocked that FG!!!!!!!! GJ Gholston!

  473. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We are gonna win and screw draft position lol

  474. cmurda Says:

    LOL @ Rod Munch. I agree totally.

  475. DB55 Says:





  477. King C Says:

    Wow Atlanta must not want to win. Ryan has been missing throws all year tho

  478. Bird Says:


    Dude. You are copy and pasting. Look at my posts. I felt bad for that play. Never here an injury. Keep being the DB you are. Bruh

  479. WeAreLost Says:

    The last Jedi sux azz

  480. mark2001 Says:

    cmurda…he is reading the open guy…he just isn’t on target tonight. He has had very few accurate passes.

  481. Rrsrq Says:

    Are we getting our hopes up? Is it possible? Can this happen? Will the Bucs, injured, beat up and undermanned, pull off this game, time in to the fourth quarter

  482. Season Is Over Says:

    WeAreLost with the most true statement of the night. Lol. It was like watching the Bucs D trying to hold a lead.

  483. mark2001 Says:

    Even Ryans short passes haven’t been on the money.

  484. EA Says:

    Winston is playing solid ball so far tonight.

  485. Rod Munch Says:

    Haha, did you see the stupid ref fall down? What an a hole.

  486. unbelievable Says:

    Do we even have enough guys left?

    This is seriously ridiculous.

  487. Bird Says:

    Down 11. Damn. The kicker may need some more pt

  488. unbelievable Says:

    Cmon Brate!!!!

  489. Season Is Over Says:

    I will say Winston has a lot more zip on the ball tonight. I can only assume his shoulder was pretty bad.

  490. WeAreLost Says:

    What an a hole lol

  491. cmurda Says:

    3 incompletions. 2 because of guys unable to catch balls right to them.

  492. Rod Munch Says:

    Brate with another drop, that’s 2 tonight – and 3 overall for white players.

  493. Swanee Says:

    Brates dropped killed that drive.

  494. cmurda Says:

    Brate’s hands are average at best. He’s regressed.

  495. Bird Says:

    Winston best game of season. I want him to finish strong and have complete game.

    However. That draft pick could be Chubb

  496. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk punting from the Atlanta 43.

    What a d-bag.

  497. mark2001 Says:

    I wonder if they gave Brate the concussion check? He just doesn’t seem right since that first quarter hit…offsides…hands weren’t right for the pass on that play…didn’t get another.

  498. unbelievable Says:

    I’ll say it again:

    Can’t blame the coach for that, or the GM. Or Jameis.

  499. mark2001 Says:

    I’m telling you guys…Brate isn’t right…don’t forget the offsides again. And a Harvard guy can’t get the snap count? Just saying.

  500. MadMax Says:

    Unless we can get Chubb, we just might need to trade that first pick….we need some extra draft picks badly!

  501. Rod Munch Says:

    So instead of Atlanta going 57 to score a TD here, they’ll go 87. That was worth punting.

  502. gilhealy Says:

    run plays to Godwin. He will catch the ball. why do we waste his talent every game?

  503. Swanee Says:

    Winston is playing outstanding. To many drops and bone head offensive pass interference calls to win this game.

  504. cmurda Says:

    Normally I’d agree Munch but it’s a 3 point game and it’s 4th an 8. Our defense needs all the help it can get.

  505. Bucs68 Says:

    I agree. Winston has more velocity than I have seen in a while tonight. Unfortunately our entire team is now injured.

  506. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That last drop from Brate was more likely on JW. On the replay it looked like a knuckle ball. Was a difficult catch

  507. King C Says:

    I don’t agree with abandoning run game at the end.
    Stop calling receiver screens

  508. unbelievable Says:

    If only we could recover a fumble. Ugh.

  509. mark2001 Says:

    Lucky Falcons again.

  510. MadMax Says:

    Nice hit Conte!!!!

  511. cmurda Says:

    Gaping hole, fumble. Right to them. The luck that just goes to the better team.

  512. Swanee Says:

    Yes and play Godwin for goodness sake koetter.

  513. DB55 Says:

    Oh boy Conte made a play? Jeezus McIceCream is real

  514. Bird Says:

    We can’t get a bounce tonight.

    Guys are fighting. Not quitting on koetter.

  515. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – I agree it’s correct to punt there, but when your defense is beat-up and on top of that they’re awful and you’ve only been stopping them because of missed reads – I say play the odds, the odds being that they’re going to score anyways. Hope not, we’ll know in a second.

  516. WeAreLost Says:

    Conte a true warrior on the field

  517. cmurda Says:

    It’s the fact that M Smith blitzes and has no coverage on the RB. Stupid decision especially when noone can breathe on the QB.

  518. mark2001 Says:

    If I were the Falcons O coordinator, I’d be calling short passes, screens and running plays the rest of the evening. Ryan’s deep passing is off tonight.

  519. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Chris conte playing well in coverage and nice play on run. Note he doesn’t have to bend the rules like Atlanta coverage on Evans.

  520. cmurda Says:

    It’s hard to disagree Munch. Freaking Conte is the one making all the tackles. A really bad sign.

  521. Swanee Says:

    We are tired. Won’t be able to stop the run. No back ups.

  522. DB55 Says:

    Deion Sanders is cussing at a tv somewhere. Lol

  523. Bird Says:

    Yah. Brate looks off. Took a hit

  524. Rod Munch Says:

    OK so what was that, 5 plays and the Atlanta has erased the punt yardage? That’s why when you defense stinks you just go for it when you’re on the other team’s side of the field when it’s 4th and under 10.

  525. cmurda Says:

    I don’t care if our Front 7 are baggers from Publix, it’s an embarrassment to the fans.

  526. DB55 Says:

    That backside contain is horrible

  527. Rod Munch Says:

    Matt Ryan with the potty mouth.

  528. gilhealy Says:

    geez, do we ever stay in our gaps? they run the same play and get 8 or more yards every time.

  529. Rob Says:

    Vaunted paper mache Mike Smith defense giving up the booty again. Wtf

  530. DB55 Says:

    They fighting man which is better than usual

  531. mark2001 Says:

    Honestly, these guys are playing their hearts out…I’m proud of the effort. And for those that just want to call it an embarrassment…well…many Bucs fans are an embarrassment.

  532. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith needs to be canned so fast. Why wait another game? We have 10 guys on the field. It happens again when we are confused on defense and Matt makes the wrong read and we burned another timeout because the defense doesn’t know what they are doing. Please fire this bum who has never coached a good defense in his life.

  533. Bird Says:

    Bollough in

  534. gilhealy Says:


  535. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey wow, shocking turn of events there. Glad Dirk punted.

  536. unbelievable Says:

    Joe dirt and Tandy just got embarrassed.

  537. Rrsrq Says:

    Soon as I saw Joe dirt in the game I knew that was coming

  538. Grt1 Says:

    Great play by you guys great white hype #49

  539. cmurda Says:

    LOL at Tandy. Terrible. LMAO at this defense getting blown off the line. Fire Mike Smith fan club. Let’s tart it up.

  540. unbelievable Says:

    They are fighting. Some of them.

  541. DB55 Says:

    Joe dirt ladies and gentlemen

    Some of ya are crey crey

  542. mark2001 Says:

    Too tired…too many injuries…but we’ve given them more than they planned on. And two fumbles that didn’t bounce our way.

  543. gilhealy Says:

    go for it on 4th from now on thru the rest of the season. send a message.

  544. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Another double digit loss season.

  545. WeAreLost Says:

    Hey where only down by ten with eight minutes left.
    Better than I thought.

  546. Season Is Over Says:

    Koetter is completely useless. Time to go.

  547. Sydney Says:


  548. Bird Says:

    Man. You can’t win with all these injuries. They are down 5-6 guys on each side of ball.

    With that said – mike smith not looking good right now.

  549. unbelievable Says:

    Yup I knew they were going straight at joe dirt too.

    He’s a nice guy and has the football brain but he ain’t fast enough or strong enough for the NFL.

  550. Grt1 Says:

    But hey #49 is feel good story right…smh

  551. BucThis Says:


  552. The Anomaly Says:

    Ugly ugly game.

    Barber’s fumble was huge. We were going in to tie it.

    Cut Barber and Martin and draft a RB worth a damn, please.

    Tired of this junk.

  553. Rod Munch Says:

    That’s why Dirk isn’t head coaching material – he’s a coward when it comes to play calling. Who didn’t know ATL would score a TD on that drive? I knew for certain, the defense is spent and the Bucs are only surviving because of bad plays by ATL. A good coach who isn’t a coward doesn’t punt there, they put faith in their QB who has played a nearly flawless game. Instead this dope punts the ball and the game is over.

  554. Bird Says:

    Here go the koetter whiners. Classic.

  555. Rob Says:

    Rout back on . FING ZERO I repeat ZERO defense. Draft position secure. Coach firing still imminent, at least the a$$ clown Mike Smith and his paper mache give up the booty non defense. Embarrassing horrific predictably bad when it counts the most

  556. Rrsrq Says:

    Peyton Barber has how many carries this half, is Chris Godwin even playing, Brate and Cross dropping balls, ME getting called for PI’s, injuries mounting up like crazy, to only be down ten…. JW has only three incomplete passes, two of those are drops

  557. DB55 Says:

    They’ll come back. Jameis needs to call some audibles. Monken Koetter whoever tf is losing this game. Ever heard of crossing routes you old mfs

  558. Lakeland Says:

    Joe dirt has a faceful of dirt

    They should have kept Bradley McDougald

  559. cmurda Says:

    Our defense has been healthy for the majority of the year and has looked no better. Matty Ice has a bad game, Jameis has a near perfect game and we still are losing by double digits. The whole coaching staff needs to go and no, I don’t want Jay Hayes anywhere near the defensive coordinator position.

  560. mark2001 Says:

    Bird…let’s be frank about it…we are down to a practice squad guy at one position..

  561. Rod Munch Says:

    Joe Dirt was being blocked 1-on-1 by an offensive lineman, that wasn’t his play to make. Why are you piling on the kid?

  562. Rrsrq Says:

    Oh yeah, two forced fumbles but can’t get to the ball

  563. Swanee Says:

    To many injuries and no backups available. They played well enough to win but they were way undermanned tonight. They will need to bring several up from practice squad to finish last 2 games.

  564. DB55 Says:

    Predictable offense.

    Proof we didn’t need djax

  565. mark2001 Says:

    Threading the needle on that one. Risky… but at this point…go for it.

  566. Matt B Says:

    We’ve got our practice squad defense out there. Can’t fault their heart. They’re trying, just overmatched.

  567. not there yet Says:

    This is why koetter has to go. Your football is injured on defense more than offense and you punt at mid field to a team you can’t stop and you 4-9 this dude is clueless. Winston is having the best game of the season and dirk for some reason continues to show more faith in his defense than his offense, if he gets fired he can at least take comfort in the fact that he earned it

  568. cmurda Says:

    Another perfect pass by Winston not caught.

  569. Rob Says:

    Winston with his best game this year. Too bad Mike Smith and the paper mache non defense gave up the booty again

  570. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Dirk, you’re at the ATL 40 – go ahead and punt now and get it over with.

  571. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Riley did exactly what the play called for. Y’all clearly don’t understand foot ball. His role was to kick the play inside where the safety Tandy was supposed to fill. The play shouldn’t have even gotten to that point if Conte didn’t get whooped by sanu

  572. Swanee Says:

    Barbers fumble was unacceptable tonight inside the 5 yard line…

  573. Bird Says:

    Mark 2001

    What are you talking about. You are making comments that make no sense. I just said both sides are missing 5-6 guys. People are blaming koetter for loss. I think koetter called a good game and Jameis has best game of season.

  574. DB55 Says:

    Get it

  575. mark2001 Says:

    Jameis has had a good game. And who would think that Gruden doesn’t think he has potential?

  576. Pa Privateer Says:

    I love watching Barber hit people….we need more of that

  577. Lakeland Says:

    I’m pulling for the Bucs, I want the Cowboys in the playoffs

  578. mark2001 Says:

    Bird…I’m saying the talent on the field is too thin right now. It isn’t because of effort.

  579. Bird Says:

    They are missing both tight ends and 4 starters on oline. Gutsy if you ask me.

  580. DB55 Says:

    Taking too long

  581. cmurda Says:

    Lets go JW. Dude is putting this team on his back.

  582. Wesley Says:

    Humphries runs out of bounds and they don’t stop the clock?

  583. DB55 Says:


  584. Bird Says:


  585. MadMax Says:

    JW to Hump!!!! GJ guys!!!!

  586. DB55 Says:

    Mama there guys that boy

  587. Rrsrq Says:

    Jameis on 🔥 tonight,

  588. Swanee Says:

    Winston the best I seen him play all year.

  589. cmurda Says:

    Jon Gruden: That’s not just good, that’s as good as it gets. So proud of Jameis. Unbelievable. I heart Jameis.

  590. Rod Munch Says:

    Onside kick… seriously, don’t give ATL the ball back or they just run the clock out. Give yourself a chance and try to hold them to a FG and a chance to get the ball back with a min or so left.

  591. J dubb Says:

    I love that James is having his best game in front of gruden, gruden probably salivating at the thought of working with him

  592. Rob Says:

    great play Winston. Defense needs to not give up the booty like they love to do

  593. cmurda Says:

    Only under 5 mins Wesley on clock stoppage.

  594. mark2001 Says:

    Like I said before…the problem with Jameis this year is coaching….the talent is undeniably there.

  595. J dubb Says:

    Sorry jameis

  596. Pa Privateer Says:

    Feels so good watching the extra point go straight thru the uprights

    Finally this team is playing some ball!

    Love the effort of all the players tonight. lots of injuries

  597. BucsFan90 Says:

    That’s my quarterback!!!

  598. gilhealy Says:

    yea, but he’s regressing…

  599. cmurda Says:

    Jameis 24 out of 30 with at least 4 drops and 264 yds and 3 td’s. That a way to shut the haters up JW.

  600. Grt1 Says:

    It’s st Jamie’s fault… Where are the Jameis trolls tonight it must be a full moon

  601. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Yuc, why would you want the cowgirls to make the playoffs?

  602. Bayers Says:

    Don’t give up the booty defense get them off field quick plus again jameis bought the team back again

  603. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston averages about 290 yards and 3 TDs versus Atlanta, this is what he always does to this soft Falcons team.

    If only Dirk wasn’t a cowardly coach he’d be moving on to 4-1 against Atlanta instead of standing on the sidelines as ATL runs the clock out.

  604. Swanee Says:

    Once we draft all defense players and cut loose the secondary on this team we will look much better next season. Got to get some real nfl talent in secondary and go out in free agency to find experienced offensive line.

  605. cmurda Says:

    It’s time for a Freeman fumble to go our way.

  606. unbelievable Says:

    Rob they have like 7 starters and another 4 rotational guys injured on defense. As soft as they look, I’d say they’re playing as good as they can.

    Joe dirt is barely a practice squad player.

  607. Pa Privateer Says:

    LETS GO BUCS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    COME ON D!!!!!!!!

  608. DB55 Says:

    TB buc fans correction: “real” buc fans you have no heart. You dudes are feminine. No wonder you love ice cream and hate The Messiah

    McIceCream Tutti frutti rainbow snap Twinkie toes

  609. Rob Says:

    Mike Smith and his give up the booty paper mache defense better do their effing jobs or they should fire Smith tonight

  610. DB55 Says:

    Now go get the ball back

  611. J dubb Says:

    First prime time game that jameis has shown out….this could be a breakthrough point in his career

  612. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    He still has plenty of issues that one game doesn’t resolve. But gotta give credit were credit is due. He’s playing very well.

  613. Yukon Cornelius Says:

    Anyone notice that the pass rush doesn’t look any different with GMC out?

    Also – how about this Winston guy? What a terrible QB right

  614. DB55 Says:

    Baker getting off the pile late in the game.

  615. Rrsrq Says:

    Give it up for Chris Conte

  616. DB55 Says:

    Whoooooooooooooa got’em

  617. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Game ball for d has to go to conte

  618. gilhealy Says:

    oh no. 3rd and long. right where they want us.

  619. mark2001 Says:

    gilhealy…when he plays this way most games, we can say he has arrived, instead of one game in fourteen.

  620. DB55 Says:

    Conte making plays wow

    McIceCream is real

  621. gilhealy Says:

    that should do it

  622. DB55 Says:

    DAmmit only cuz they showed McIceCream on tv fml

  623. cmurda Says:

    No pressure at all on Ryan. Complete and utter defensive trash. Jameis puts this team on his back and Mike Smith’s putrid defense can’t make a play.

  624. Rrsrq Says:

    c’mon defense, needed that

  625. Cgmaster Says:

    The only thing better than watching Jameis carve up this falcons defense is watching the clowns like bucnut stay quiet.

  626. WeAreLost Says:

    A season high for some player with our crap defense

  627. Rod Munch Says:

    In addition to punting the ball earlier, Dirk wasted a TO on defense on that drive giving the defense a breather since they were spent.

    That won’t hurt us at all…

  628. gilhealy Says:

    mark2001, hush. you’re an idiot. just keep following the crowd. real knows real. you don’t.

  629. DB55 Says:


  630. mark2001 Says:

    This is the game, guys.

  631. Bird Says:

    Guys flying to the ball. They ain’t quit.

  632. cmurda Says:

    3rd and long. You think you can finally stop a 3rd down defense? Right now. Give Jameis a chance.

  633. Pa Privateer Says:

    I don’t care if we lose, as long as I see these guys playing lights out

    lots of heart tonight

  634. Rod Munch Says:

    There is like a 45 second delay on my cable… so this game is already decided and I don’t know it yet…. weird…

  635. gilhealy Says:

    again, right where they want us.

  636. Jeagan1999 Says:

    This might be jameis’s best game this season. Win or lose, this game gives me some hope for the future. If the Bucs can get some fresh talent at OT and DE, they have something to build on.

  637. Rrsrq Says:

    Turnover time

  638. Pa Privateer Says:


  639. mark2001 Says:

    gilhealy…sure…just keep polishing your Jameis ornament on your Christmas tree. Frankly, I haven’t been a critic of Jameis all year. Show me where I have in this thread. I just want him to play like his has tonight, most games. And until he has, he hasn’t arrived. It is that simple. And to erase every other game this year and act like they didn’t exist is childish.

  640. Bird Says:


  641. Rod Munch Says:


  642. Pa Privateer Says:

    lets go

  643. Swanee Says:

    I’m telling you Coach K saved his job for one more season tonight. Not that I agree but he did.

  644. MadMax Says:

    Theres that sack! Big CLINT!!!!!

  645. cmurda Says:

    Come on Jameis get us to FG range. This would be a signature win for JW.

  646. DB55 Says:

    Who who who? Who who dat man right there

  647. Pa Privateer Says:

    T A M P A………………………….

  648. J dubb Says:

    I love the sack but an I’m completion so much better in that situation

  649. gilhealy Says:

    alrighty then. good effort, boys. lets hope for the best. great show tonite.

  650. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Going to OT

  651. WeAreLost Says:

    Lol holy sht a sack that meant something.

  652. Bird Says:

    Dang. I want a win but I don’t.

  653. DB55 Says:

    McIceCream #

  654. Pa Privateer Says:

    we need a return
    come on hump

  655. MadMax Says:

    Here we go!

  656. Rod Munch Says:

    So does Humphries fumble the game away again like in Buffalo or does Brate tip the ball for an INT… or…. could it be….

  657. Pa Privateer Says:

    ill take that return

    well done HUMP

  658. cmurda Says:

    Oh Hump. Nice return but he needed to kick that last move outside and it would have gotten interesting.

  659. nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    Do u see the Bucs cleats all over JW’s back, he is litetally carring the team! No OJ, No Djax, no OLINE

  660. gilhealy Says:

    godwin across the middle

  661. King C Says:

    Lol if Ryan took the sack instead of fumbling in Super bowl, they win

  662. mark2001 Says:

    gilhealy…Jameis worshipper…newsflash…the D just made a nice stop, as they have played their hearts out this game.

  663. MadMax Says:

    Dang….needle threaded!

  664. WeAreLost Says:

    F’in hump

  665. Pa Privateer Says:

    I LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

  666. Bangkok Buc Says:

    If we played like this all season, we’d be in the playoff talk. Jameis is playing insane!!!

  667. Bird Says:

    Delay of game on them for keeping receiver down

  668. MadMax Says:

    I want this JW3 all the time!!!

  669. Bird Says:

    Another delay of game by defender and ref

  670. cmurda Says:

    This ref falling down just made it all worth it. Cost us a possible play before the FG.

  671. MadMax Says:

    Lol, bucs luck….ref falls!

  672. DB55 Says:


  673. Pa Privateer Says:


    But I loved the game tonight

  674. Swanee Says:

    Just a heart breaker

  675. mark2001 Says:

    Ended like it started… missed field goal.

  676. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It’s all good. Glad we fought hard

  677. cmurda Says:

    Matt Bryant hit a 57 yarder and I knew Murray wouldn’t come through. Inferior team but effing great effort by JW.

  678. Rrsrq Says:


  679. DB55 Says:

    It’s a game of inches.

  680. WeAreLost Says:


  681. MadMax Says:

    Well, def a hard fought game….draft place still good. But they barely lost with a lot of injuries. JW3 balled!

  682. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Good game boys

  683. mark2001 Says:

    Hats off to these guys for playing with pride…came up short, but much hope for the future.

  684. Bangkok Buc Says:

    I’m OK with that loss. Played hard, didn’t embarrass ourselves on national TV and still securing a top 10 draft pick.

  685. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Bring back Folk! lol

  686. Rod Munch Says:

    Not only did the ref falling down cost us like 4 seconds, he also didn’t spot the ball right, they moved it back like a yard and half on the spot. Pitiful job by the refs tonight, but what else is new. Disgraceful.

  687. JonBuc Says:

    Solid effort….top draft pick procured….

  688. DB55 Says:

    Let’s do this joe I wanna R.I.P. these real Jameis haters a new one

  689. SKBucsFan Says:

    Where was that effort all season? Maybe playing players that have a lot to prove is the key to playing well. Doesn’t bode well for GMC

  690. Rrsrq Says:

    Most teams get in this position and make the kick

  691. Matts17 Says:

    Superb game from JW. Not enough help

  692. cmurda Says:

    Defense cost us another game. How is Mike Smith employed. It’s a slap in the face that Mike Smith is still pioneering the most readable defense in the history of the NFL.

  693. SteveK Says:

    Great effort! Great game!

    Can’t wait to see Koetter/Licht/Jameis/+ new defense next year.

  694. Bkgrime Says:

    Jameis played lights out tonight behind arguably the worst o-line in the league.

  695. DB55 Says:

    So can we trade McIceCream now or …..

  696. Bird Says:

    Finally some fight.

    Hey. Gotta give Jameis the game ball. Best game of season. Maybe last 2

    He played like we have been hoping for. I know the smoes will have a field day in the upcoming articles on Americas quarteback.

  697. MDFree Says:

    And the story of our season comes full circle…

  698. Rob Says:

    Bucs get bonus effort points and keep draft position. No excuse losing this one. Barber cost us the game with epic fumble. Defense no pass rush and couldn’t stop the run. Jameis was a franchise qb today. Defense gave up way too much booty. Fire Smith and his awful defensive coaches. Every team has injuries. Smith sucked all year

  699. Swanee Says:

    Outstanding game by JW. To many injuries to win.

  700. Pa Privateer Says:

    Loved the game. SO much good came and we didn’t lose our draft slot

    Loved watching Barber hit and drag people tonight

  701. Rrsrq Says:

    Really played tough tonight, sad that isn’t every game

  702. Lakeland Says:

    There’s a lot of folks with high blood pressure in Tampa tonight
