Buccaneers-Dolphins, Open Thread

August 9th, 2018

Fire up the in-game chatter in the comments section all throughout tonight’s preseason opener in South Florida.

Please keep it respectful, but don’t hesitate to mix it up. Joe is live on the scene and come back all through the night.

There’s so much to keep an eye on, even in the second half when future gym teachers, grad students, and mattress movers take the field against Fins.

Go Bucs!

  3. Reality-is-a-Beotch Says:

    Tonight is just the first step enroute to another basement title. the only goal the glazer clowns are able to achieve is losing.

  4. JAB83 Says:

    Am I still in the coolee???

  5. Greg Says:

    Weird off-season is nearing an end. Seriously the over reaction of the Jameis/ Hogan pic is ridicules but over reaction is the world we are in. Cant wait to be talking about some actual football. I want to see our corners press and not play 13 yards back. Just stay healthy!!!

  6. Dooshlarue Says:

    …..don’t forget the future Uber drivers too Joe!
    Let’s give them a hand……..
    Well, maybe not a hand…..

  7. Couch Fan Says:

    Its been a long time since we’ve seen something other than a p!ss poor pre season. Would be nice to break the trend, get off to a fast start and have some excitement heading into the regular season opener. Go Bucs!

  8. SB Says:

    LETS GO BUCS!!!!

  9. Bird Says:

    Starting coverage at 7 or kickoff?

  10. Stanglassman Says:

    Looking like coverage starts at 7. Kickoff time?

  11. Joe Says:

    Starting coverage at 7 or kickoff?

    Kickoff is scheduled for roughly 7:08.

  12. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Can’t wait to see god awful terrible officiating with the disaster pathetic new helmet rule.

  13. Dave Pear Says:

    Time to parole Tmax.
    He’s served his sentence.

  14. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Great pass rush!!!

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    I think the Rays found someone they can outdraw, at least in preseason.

  16. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    DBs & pass rush wow

  17. Dooshlarue Says:

    Those are our ugliest uniforms by far.

  18. ATrain Says:

    Boy I hope this soft play is just Preseason

    Tannelhill made a sandwich on that last one

  19. Sweeptheleg Says:

    And I notice corners off 12 yards again.

  20. ATrain Says:

    Drive a truck through that hole

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    Chris Conte in regular season form.

  22. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Gaining positive yards on every play so far

  23. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Bye Bye Dirk and Smitty

  24. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    hargreaves pussed out on that bliitz

  25. Dooshlarue Says:

    FIRE Mike Smith NOW!

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    People panicking over the opening series of a preseason game? LOL! What morons.

  27. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    The Friggin dolphins marched right down the field, same yucs

  28. ChanEpic Says:

    Hey y’all! This is very exciting, I am so glad to see my Beloved Bucs! Let’s do this, and start some winning ways Tonight!

  29. blowbucsfan Says:


  30. ATrain Says:

    No Panic

    Just hoping this is not a preview of what’s to come. Miami is in a preseason game too

  31. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Yes, people are panicking. It’s the same ol bullspit as last year. Corners should never be 15 yards off the line. It’s a joke. Give us a real coaching staff and this team can win a lot of games.

  32. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Anyone notice they are double teaming both JPP and McCoy?

    Teams won’t be able to do that full time!

  33. Broy34 Says:

    Gonna laugh when this team wins 10 games and all the negative nancies leave for good. And yes I’ve suffered through The last 15 years so I don’t wanna hear it. I get it

  34. Miguel Grande Says:

    JPP is a beast!!!

  35. Dave Pear Says:

    Duthsty Rhothdes Says:
    August 9th, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    The Friggin dolphins marched right down the field, same yucs
    Did they score?
    Not the same.

  36. Sweeptheleg Says:


    It’s because we’ve seen this song and dance many times before.

    Are you a young fan? Because obviously you didn’t notice that it looked exactly the same as last season.

  37. Cs2 Says:

    I get this is a vanilla game, but good lord the dolphins stomped on our defense for the most part. Way to be 10 yards off the line

  38. TBTeddy Says:

    Vinny curry need to show me something

  39. Bird Says:

    So I know it’s preseason buc I agree. We play off coverage.

    Tannehill just snapping quickly and releasing short passes.
    Smitty not realize this?

    I mean the worst thing a coach can do is not change with the times. This is a passing league.

  40. Anonymous Says:

    Ahhh…the sky is falling!!! Haha people are panicking over the 1st series. LOLOLOLOLOL

  41. Rod Munch Says:

    I think Mike Smith is a terrible DC, but to panic over the opening series of game one of the preseason, you’re just a dope, the same dopes last preseason in game one that were saying Justin Evans was a bust after game 1 of the preseason. Chill out people, Mike Smith is terrible, but that series literally proves or disproves anything. It’s preseason. Game 1 of the preseason. The opening series of game 1 of the preseason.

  42. Sweeptheleg Says:


    Hahahaha that’s hilarious.

    No way in planet earth the Bucs win 10 games. You’re gonna be really disappointed if you really think 10 games is possible.

  43. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Duthsty Rhothdes Says:
    August 9th, 2018 at 7:16 pm
    “The Friggin dolphins marched right down the field, same yucs”

    Yeah. Apparently, only making it to the 53 is marching down the field. please.

  44. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Looks like monk is calling the plays

  45. Rod Munch Says:

    So if you’re panicking over the defense, you must think the offense is going to be the NFL’s best!

  46. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Barber running with some power

  47. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Offense looks pretty decent. But the defense? Better tighten up

  48. Bird Says:

    Cmon offense! Now that was a drive. Gutsy call

  49. Dooshlarue Says:


  50. Couch Fan Says:

    #FireTheCannons!!! Nice drive.

  51. Miguel Grande Says:


  52. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    FYI, Dolphins only made it the the 47 yard line.

    TD Bucs. Also btw

  53. Sweeptheleg Says:

    They better be able to score to offset the defense.

  54. blowbucsfan Says:

    told yall barber can run!

  55. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Lol! Missec xp

  56. Rod Munch Says:

    Peyton Barber, best RB in football, he’s on pace to score 4 TDs a game, or 64TD’s rushing for the year! Holy Jesus, RIP Emmit Smith, we have Peyton Barber!!!!

  57. Couch Fan Says:

    LMAO… Typcial Bucs. Do something good, then F!ck it up.

  58. Dooshlarue Says:

    There’s a 53 yard line?
    Who knew?

  59. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Good god can we please find a darn kicker.

    So over our kickers sucking it up every time they’re foot touches it.

  60. EA Says:

    ahahaha kickers and the bucs man, can’t make this stuff up.


    Oh no!!!! Ihope that was an anomaly at kicker

  62. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Lmao where kickers come to die

  63. Dave Pear Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai,
    Actually the Dolphins made it to the 36 yard line.

  64. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Dolphins are a 2-14 team but that was impressive drive, but gonna need to score 28 & go for 2 every week

  65. FairMinded Says:

    Man just came on to say nice drive! Then the goddamn kicker misses. It’s a Buc’s life!

  66. Marc Says:

    Bucs looking good with Fitz y’all …. I think 0-3 is far fetched rn

  67. Bird Says:

    The Joe’s are already writing the article for our kicking problem?

    Those are gimmes. I used to kick with brothe and could make 10 out of 10 from that distance

  68. MadMax Says:

    missed the extra point….thats our luck…smh

  69. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Look again.

  70. Wesley Says:

    Get rid of the extra point no team should lose a game because the kicker missed an extra point. It’s just plain dumb.

  71. Doctor Stroud Says:

    I’ve gotta crack open a Jai Alai IPA from Cigar City Brewing!

  72. Sweeptheleg Says:

    I would literally bring in anyone that can kick. Like 40 kickers and have a 2 day kickoff and keep whoever makes the most.

    Might as well try anything at this point

  73. blowbucsfan Says:

    member last year we were freaking about the defense not stopping anyone and everyone was like its only the preseason… dont tell me preseason isnt a good indicator. if you suck on fundementals in preseason u gonna suck when it counts

  74. Rod Munch Says:

    Who didn’t know a kicker that got huge money would miss their first kick, and who knew that all the dopes would say he’s a bust, worst kicker in the league and demand he’s cut… LOL!

    Keep it up people, it’s hilarious end of season reading. Justin Evans last preseason is the best, you literally had people saying he’s a bigger bust than Roberto after game 1 of the preseason.

  75. SB Says:

    Think I might need to fly down there and try out for Kicker.

  76. MDFree Says:

    The curse of Roberto Aguayo

  77. DaBux Says:

    Oh no we suck again (at kicking)

  78. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Good job 93

  79. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Curry was there with McCoy too.

  80. Buc believer Says:

    Missed extra point! There goes over 3 million guaranteed

  81. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Dolphins 2s lighting up bucs first D, NICE

  82. Bird Says:

    McCoy baby. Where the haters at ?

    Again mike smith off coverage needs a captain obvious commercial

  83. Rod Munch Says:

    [Chris is a good man. — Joe]

  84. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Lol. He missed an extra point in preseason. Last year he missed non in regular season.

  85. Broy34 Says:

    Clearly it’s the holder. Stop letting anger hold. This is kicker number four

  86. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, Ryan Smith, literally the worst corner I’ve ever seen in my life, EVER, gives up a huge play. The guy does not deserve to be in the NFL, he’s terrible, and that’s not based on this play, that is based on all of last season.


    bullsht call. pushoff

  88. TBTeddy Says:

    Ryan smith is getting picked on

  89. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, Ryan Smith gets burned on the next play…

  90. Bird Says:


    So they are throwing to the guy on Ryan Smith
    That boy good he good

    Uhmmmhmmm good and terrible

  91. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bend. Don’t break.break

    I like it.

  92. SB Says:

    Ryan Smith not looking stellar right now?

  93. Rod Munch Says:

    I literally have no idea how Ryan Smith is on an NFL roster, I wouldn’t even have him on the Storm’s roster when they were around.

  94. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL….Hargraves out with a groin

  95. TBTeddy Says:

    One of the rookies needs a shot over smith. The game just started but he’s not looking ready at all

  96. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    I’m also starting to believe it might be anger. He is the only common denominator.

  97. Barksdale Says:

    How can these coaches keep putting Ryan Smith out there. They literally just changed the call at the line to run a go route against him (drew the penalty). He can’t play bump and run, he cant play off. It’s not his fault he keeps finding the field though.

  98. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ugh. Had to get off my tablet. Got the laptop now!

    Good return by Wilson.

  99. TBTeddy Says:

    Who ran that kick back? I’m at a bar with no volume

  100. Rojas Says:

    Who’s worse.. haha Ryan Smith.. Myron Lewis.. Mike Jenkins.. I think their all 3 about the same.

  101. Rod Munch Says:

    TBTeddy – Ryan Smith looked terrible in week 17 against the Saints, just as lost and out of place as he was in game 1 of last preseason against the Bengals when he was so bad they had him play the entire game and he was getting burned by the Bengals 3rd team players. He’s terrible. Just cut your loses and be done with the guy, hope someone in the NFC south signs him so we can play against twice a year.

  102. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Barksdale Says
    ‘How can these coaches keep putting Ryan Smith out there.”

    To make the rookies work for a starting role.

  103. TBTeddy Says:

    Somebody better tell Fitz this game doesn’t count b4 he gets hurt

  104. Rod Munch Says:

    Rojas – Dumb question, Ryan Smith is 1000000x worse than either.

    Better question, who is worse, Ryan Smith or Chris Meyers?

  105. Barksdale Says:

    Good call on the Bonzai

  106. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    These short passes are not producing at all.



  108. Bird Says:

    Fitzmagic baby.

    Man that was almost filthy

  109. Broy34 Says:

    It’s over for Ryan smith and I’m not watching. I don’t have to. It’s quite clear

  110. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow. Jones just cannot catch, lol.

  111. Doug R.R. Martin Says:

    Came here to talk about Ryan Smith but its already done.

  112. TDTB Says:



    Nohands Jones…SMFH

  114. ATrain Says:

    Heard the footsteps

  115. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk LOVES punting from the 40… LOVES IT!!!!

    He’s clearly in regular season form.

  116. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Darius Guice!!!!

  117. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Minka is everywhere.


    He’d better run better than he catches!!!

  119. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Rod, thats a great play in the koetter playbook

  120. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I want to see Rojo run a few times. Cause he clearly is not a pass catcher yet.

    That;s alright…he can learn with practice. But not if he sucks in the run game.

  121. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Mike Evans, you are so right on Minkah, wow

  122. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Kobe would rather have Ryan Griffen play cornerback”

    Kobe Faker

  123. TBTeddy Says:

    Hell yea Evans goat I was just thinking Minkah already trying to make us regret not drafting him

  124. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    VHIII with a minor groin twang (hehe) They pulled him because its not worth him pushing it.

  125. TDTB Says:

    Like it Whitehead

  126. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    helluva hit by whithead but he knocked out

  127. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    On the bright side the O line looks good

  128. JAB83 Says:

    Whiteheas just knocked his own head off!!!

  129. Broy34 Says:

    We knew Minkah would be good. Hated the vea pick


    Asshole lead with his head…

  131. TBTeddy Says:

    Whitehead done gave his self a concussion damn smh

  132. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Down goes Whitehead

  133. Rod Munch Says:

    Duthsty Rhothdes – Last year against Atlanta the Bucs are in the same situation, except it’s like 4th and 4 from the Falcons 40 – I yell, don’t punt the G-D ball, the defense is completely spent and they’re going to march straight down the field and get a TD – all of which is documented in the game thread… and the Falcons get the ball, march right down the field and score a TD.

    Dirk also did the same thing, in the same situation, against the Pats and I do believe there was at least another game where he did the same and again gave up a TD when the defense was spent. Dirk has no balls, he clearly didn’t watch the SuperBowl, where the Eagles won the game going for it on 4th, well that and a blown call by the officials.

    With all that said, it’s preseason, and it was like 4th and 14, so not saying he should go for it there, just pointing out Dirk LOVES to punt from the 40, no matter how much it hurts the team.

  134. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Not a concussion. They just need to check him out according to the rules.

  135. TBTeddy Says:

    The better the players after Vea play the more pressure on him. Anybody know why the gave Licht an extension when they did?

  136. Bird Says:

    Whitehead looking like john lynch trying to rip a guy’s head off.

    He tried to get up quick to show his big hit. But he was wobly

  137. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rod Munch and Duthsty Rhothdes , careful. You might get an Uber incident going that way you are both up each others crotch.

  138. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Oh the trolls are out already.

  139. TBTeddy Says:

    I’m sorry Bonzai I was joking but the way he stumbled when he stood up looked like he was ready for a 10 count

  140. Rod Munch Says:

    Davis reminds me a lot of Talib early on – not that I’ve seen much of him, but that’s who he reminds me of based off very limited viewing.

  141. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    TBTeddy Says
    “Anybody know why the gave Licht an extension when they did?”

    Because contrary to what the media and bonehead fans say, he was not really on the hotseat.

  142. Rod Munch Says:

    Holy Jesus, the Dolphins player was laughing so hard about that weak Ryan Smith tackle attempt that he literally dropped the ball. Could be Smith’s best strategy going forward!

  143. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ryan Smith caused the fumble. #29

  144. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Ok Winston

  145. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    ryan smith didnt cause anything but poor tackling

  146. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – He didn’t, the guy jumped over him clean and just dropped the ball while leaping over him.

  147. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    He threw him off balance when the guy leaped over him, causing the fumble.

  148. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    FYI…second team offense just moved the ball down the field. And is about to scotr.



  150. Couch Fan Says:

    Offense is looking good tonight.

  151. Elita Vita Says:

    Way to go Jones!

  152. SB Says:

    Ballage flat out dropped the ball guys.
    No Buc knocked it out

  153. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well done, Rojo.

    Screw Guise

  154. EA Says:

    hold your breath on the extra point

  155. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Ok good drive Winston.

  156. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    We made the XP!

  157. Bird Says:

    The offense scoring 6 in red zone

    Not 3

    That’s huge. ROJO hitting that hole quick like

  158. TBTeddy Says:

    Rojo isn’t big but I like how he’s moving around out there fast guy with some vision

  159. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    You might say Winston made his 2nd team players look better. If you’re not a hater.

  160. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This play calling is the best I’ve seen in 2 years. Monk should keep calling

  161. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Mike Evans def agree

  162. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Nice play Spence

  163. Bird Says:

    Monk is game planning

    Koetter still calling plays. Pretty sure on that.

    Heard a ton about MJ Stewart in camp. He blankets his receivers. I thought that was terrible pick a team draft but he could be best pick of draft. We need back end help so bad. I know he plays inside.

    I would put him outside before Ryan “que terrible” smith

  164. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Reedy with a good return.

    I kind of wish they would try out DJax on a kick return. Of course, the Dolphins would have to score, so maybe not.

  165. SB Says:

    I have a feeling Koetter is gonna leave JW in a bit longer than necessary. Hope he doesn’t get hurt with a suspect OL and a Defensive player trying to make a name for himself.

  166. TBTeddy Says:

    Offense looks just fine but knowing how trash the dolphins are on offense, the defense hasn’t pacified my concerns

  167. JAB83 Says:

    Hot Hot Hot redzone O… Bend Done Break D!!!!

  168. CitruscountyBUC Says:

    Rookie DBs are looking at least serviceable

  169. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Koetter didn’t have a play sheet with him. He isn’t calling anything

  170. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I for one am hoping Griffin turns into a Tom Brady situation. Unlikely, but would be nice to have two franchise QBs.

  171. Rod Munch Says:

    Come on Bobo, the ball hits your hands, catch the damn ball.

  172. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Keep Watson ditch Bobo dumbo I’m so amazing idiot Wilson

  173. Buchead5588 Says:

    Bucs look good

  174. TBTeddy Says:

    I’m a big Winston apologist but these high throws need to stop this season.

  175. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, Monk is calling plays they just said… Interesting. I agree on the offense looking more professional tonight, not just calling 3 plays over and over again – and in the preseason most teams call 3 plays over and over again.

  176. Bird Says:


    Cool. Monk calling plays. Just confirmed on TV

    Offense humming

  177. TBTeddy Says:

    Dolphins are getting zero pressure on passing downs. I’m loving it

  178. Rod Munch Says:

    OMG kicker didn’t kick it down the middle, he was within 8 feet of the left upright – that’s almost the same as a miss. That proves he’s a bust. Cut him!!!

  179. Elita Vita Says:

    Hold my breath every time we kick for points.

  180. Bird Says:

    Koetter will test out in preseason who should call plays.

    People hate him. I don’t he is not an egomaniac and if monk is getting offense rolling then koetter will let him do it

  181. SB Says:

    Franchise QB starting against 2nd stringers should make better decisions than that.

  182. SB Says:

    I agree @ Bird

  183. Rod Munch Says:

    Great production job by the local d-bags at Channel 8… Ronde is explaining the kickoff rule and these dopes switch the camera. Ugh, I hate these low budget local production garbage.


    Man… That cat has some loooong arms!!!

  185. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow. Could Davis be our Revis Island?

  186. Buchead5588 Says:

    Bucs look good there not going to show nothing new in preseason

  187. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow…those were some bad tackles, lol.

  188. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Davis is gonna be the starter opposite grimes

  189. Bird Says:

    MJ Stewart and Carlton Davis looking good for rookies

    They both have jumped Ryan smith after tonight

  190. Rod Munch Says:

    SB – What are you talking with Winston, the Bobo throw, it hit him in the hands. Next play he takes the ball underneath to the open guy since no one else was open. I literally no idea what you’re referring to, he’s missed one throw, and that was the Bobo ball.

  191. Rod Munch Says:


  192. Rod Munch Says:

    Ryan Smith made a tackle… move him to LB, he literally couldn’t be any worse.


    They’re gashing our defense

  194. Rod Munch Says:

    …and next play Ryan Smith gets burned on the crossing route….


  195. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This soft coverage is literally killing me slowly

  196. SB Says:

    Must say, I know that it is only pre season but Spence is not impressing me much.
    Hopefully it is just rust.

  197. TBTeddy Says:

    2nd string D looking like sandwich meat out here


    up the middle. smh and a hold

  199. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs have no depth on defense… that was ugly.

  200. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Smith is so bad his first name should be Lovie

  201. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I’m not fretting. Backups against a decent RB and a holding OL.

  202. BucsBandit Says:


    Can’t pass defend or tackle. CUT HIM!

  203. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Wow…who is playing on the DL? They are getting BLOWN off the ball.

  204. Kev-O Says:

    Carlton Davis looks really good. Ryan smith look a awful.

  205. rrsrq Says:

    Ryan Smith has made every tackle on this drive, why is that

  206. SB Says:

    I thought we had Great DL Depth!

  207. Destinjohnny Says:

    Teams out of shape
    Gholston got his money and quit

  208. Elita Vita Says:

    I know its the 1st preseason game but so far I feel that overall that the offence is playing better than expected and the defense is playing a little less than expected. Am I wrong?

  209. Bird Says:

    Will gholston is hot garbage. What a waste of 7 mil. They should cut and hope team picks him up so we get slight discount

  210. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rod Munch Says
    “The Bucs have no depth on defense… that was ugly.”

    I don’t know if I agree with that. Unrein. Spence. Bully.

    THey just need more playing time to get better. Remember, Spence has only played pre season for the most part.

    Now we are going to score.

  211. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Dolphins have a lot of nice RBs

  212. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh no… don’t put Winston out there again…

    Hold my breath….

  213. rrsrq Says:

    I know Vea and Beckwith are out, but the LBs and DL was not there on that drive

  214. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, Brate isn’t mailing it in after getting paid.

  215. TampaBayAllDay Says:

    Joe, do us all a favor and ask Mike Smith why does he insist on play 15 yards off coverage instead of press man to man. My god that guy is stubborn af.

  216. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Great throw

  217. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Keep holding that breath until you pass out and we get a break from your constant biased whining and negativity.

  218. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Not stubborn………
    GARBAGE lol

  219. Buchead5588 Says:

    Jameis looking great I wanna see some blocking for RoJo to break a nice one

  220. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Sux about Vea. I was hoping to see him play.

  221. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – Urien was like a 3rd stringer in Chicago, and while I like Joe Dirt, I don’t actually think he’s much of an NFL player – he’s a guy I’d keep on practice for a couple of years and see where he is after that. Spence still could be an NFL talent, but he’s been so injury plagued it’s hard to say. Not panicking over game 1 of the preseason, but man, that d-line looked terrible on that play, they were pushed off the line without much trouble.

  222. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – I said hold my breath because I don’t want him getting injured, he’s looked great tonight, no reason to keep him out there.

  223. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Still a decent block by RoJo there. Just too much pressure

  224. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Need to get the bonehead plays out of Jaboo’s bonehead”

    Kobe Faker

  225. cmurda Says:

    Trying to not get frustrated watching this game but it reminds me of the last 20 years of futility. False start, sack, screen pass to the slowest RB in the NFL. Brilliant coaching.

  226. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    It looks like Koetter wants to get the RBs all the reps he can.

  227. SB Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    August 9th, 2018 at 8:14 pm
    SB – What are you talking with Winston, the Bobo throw, it hit him in the hands. Next play he takes the ball underneath to the open guy since no one else was open. I literally no idea what you’re referring to, he’s missed one throw, and that was the Bobo ball.

    Hey bro, I am not trying to butt heads with you. I didn’t like the stupid throw to Quizz when we needed the first down. As of now I don’t like how a first overall pick can’t get us anywhere. Still support him and I know he is going through alot in his life right now. Just making observations.

  228. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    The second team Dline does look bad, but then, Vea isn’t out there. We’ll see in the near future if he can make a difference.

  229. TampaBayAllDay Says:

    Mike Evans goat, agreed. Buckner for D coordinator can’t be any worst than S(h)mitty

  230. Rod Munch Says:

    SB – On 3rd down Winston took what was open – he didn’t force the ball, that’s literally what everyone says is his problem, is trying to make a play that isn’t there.

    Anyways feel free to butt heads, that’s the entire fun of these threads is to argue with people and call them names. At least to me that’s really fun.

  231. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    2nd and 7 and we have em a 10 yard cushion. Smh this is just dumb football

  232. Rod Munch Says:

    SB – Ronde literally just said on TV what I typed…

    Are YOU Ronde, stealing my material!?!?!

  233. cmurda Says:

    Poor JW. Dude ran for his life last year as the O line underperformed. Per usual our depth is suspect. Now, he’s running for his life behind the 2nd team.

  234. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hmn. The old Jameis would have gpne reckless there and tried to force a final play/

  235. Bird Says:

    I thought Jameis had better wheels then this ? Didn’t he run occasionally at FSU?

    He looks slower than my sister . The scramble left is gaudy

  236. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Technically, last year was a lot of second team OL as well because of injuries.

  237. Doctor_berto Says:

    Anyone else notice the terrible vision by rojo on last play? Big hole on left side. Why did we take him early 2nd again?

  238. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Kobe has been screaming for uptempo and the short passing attack…Kobe hopes our Wr coach Monk call the plays in the regular season….need the offense to run thru Godwin and OJ”

    Kobe Faker

  239. SB Says:

    All good Rod. I don’t like to call names all that much. When I do I typically am done with someone as far as conversation purposes. I call em like I see em. Don’t expect everyone to agree with me.

  240. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    “On 3rd down Winston took what was open – he didn’t force the ball, that’s literally what everyone says is his problem, is trying to make a play that isn’t there. ”

    Yeah. I noticed that too. Ronde commented on it as well.

    And last year, Jameis would have refused to run the clock out with a run at the end of the half. He would have called an audible for a passing play.

  241. Seminole Bill Says:

    The first team offense looked good

  242. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I’m giving Rojo a partial pass, seeing that it his first NFL game. Still, at least he scored.

  243. SB Says:

    I agree Bonzai. He had a rough start but he rebounded well.

  244. Ftmyersbuc Says:

    Your boy derrius guice already blew his knee out. Glad we didn’t pick him

  245. Miguel Grande Says:

    Good half, no complaints

  246. Ftmyersbuc Says:

    Who’s the poster always saying we should have taken guice. Lol that’s why your not a gm bud.

  247. Nole4JabooANDdBucs Says:

    SMH…some people on here really don’t know the nuances to football…they don’t really but actually critcize plays…kinda pathetic!

  248. Rod Munch Says:

    SB – Don’t be part of the words hurt millennial generation of fruitcakes, be a gen-x’er and repeated the “sticks and stones” rhyme. Call me old fashion but we are men and men should talk trash, if they don’t, then they should shove their face into a garbage compactor.

  249. Tony C Says:

    Wow I’m really astounded by all of the really insipid comments. This is preseason for fu’s sakes the first team d didn’t give up any major plays, the first team offense looked decent.

  250. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – To be clear, I don’t think Winston should be playing it safe, he’s what Brett Favre was, and people who don’t get that should jump off the Skyway. However, in the 2nd quarter of the first preseason game, Winston needs to be mainly concerned with not getting hurt, so taking what is there is fine with me.

  251. Defense Rules Says:

    So far (first half): First team offense & defense looked pretty solid; second teams not-so-much. Fitz looked very ‘efficient’. Ryan Smith & Will Gholston not cutting it, but the 3 new rookies in Secondary are. Pass rush not nearly as dominant as I was hoping for.

  252. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rod Munch Says
    “Buccaneer Bonzai – To be clear, I don’t think Winston should be playing it safe, he’s what Brett Favre was, and people who don’t get that should jump off the Skyway.”

    I actually agree with you…that;s the gunslinger mentality. It’s built into them. That said, just a tiny bit of caution would be welcome.

    Darn…Watson fumbled.

  253. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    derrius guice blew his knee out???!

  254. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    According to PFT, Guice is just getting evaluated for his knee.

  255. Durango 95 Says:

    Carlton Davis with a nice first half.

  256. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Can’t blame these defensive players for being garbage. Can’t win anything with a scheme like this

  257. Rod Munch Says:

    My most fond memory of playing the Dolphins was in 1997, the Bucs play the Dolphins on a Sunday Night Football game on national TV, in front of a sellout in Tampa. Anyways the Bucs sold season tickets for $100, total, in this one wedge on the visitors side of the stadium, and the Dolphins still had Dan Mario and a huge travelling crowd. Anywho our section of Bucs fans were surrounded by Dolphins fans and the entire game it was a war in the stands, including everyone in our section lying about a Dolphins fan in our section starting a fight and getting him thrown out of the stadium. Anywho the entire game is yelling and taunting each other and late in the game Dunn has a long TD pass to put the game away, and in our section you literally see at least a hundred beers go flying into the Dolphins section, along with a bunch of chants about calls for immigration to check IDs. Probably the most fun I’ve ever had a game, it was really really rowdy. Although there was a Packers game later that year which is a close second…

  258. Bird Says:

    Whitehead is fearless. Gonna give himself a concussion a game

    Could turn out to be good strong safety in the box.

    Justin Evans free safety

  259. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I’m liking me some Whitehead too!

  260. Walkergodeep Says:

    Whitehead reminds me of tanard Jackson physical play

  261. BucEmUp Says:

    Same Mike Smith defense..




  262. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    We have NO depth ANYWHERE do we ?

  263. Rod Munch Says:

    That new rule is stupid – I don’t care if it helps the Bucs are not, it’s a stupid stupid rule.

  264. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Is Cappa out there yet?

  265. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – Yeah Cappa is in.

  266. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Lol which one of u ding dongs mentioned Ryan Griffin in the same breath as TB12

  267. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    This just in…the Bucs starting defense was actually very, very good. And so was their offense.

  268. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This coverage on game pass is the worst I’ve ever seen. Split screen with some idiot talkin instead of watching the FOOTBALL GAME

  269. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I gotta disagree with Ronde. Jones isn’t taking Sims job this year. If anything, his inability to catch is saving Sims spot.

  270. Rod Munch Says:

    I don’t care if the Bucs got the 1st down or not, why the hell are they in shotgun on 4th and 1? Just dumb…

  271. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Grif reminds me of Glennon and Chris Simms

  272. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – Yeah, Sims is the 3rd down back, and until Ronald proves he can catch the ball, Sims should remain the 3rd down back. Not saying Jones won’t eventually prove it, but right now, Sims clearly has a role on the team.

  273. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice catch by Cross.

  274. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow. He actually scored!



  276. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Sims looks like the odd man out

  277. SB Says:

    What a Rifle from Griffen!

  278. BucEmUp Says:

    Bonzai, he many yards of total offense do.you think the starting unit will give up in the first three weeks? I’m betting top five most in the league.

  279. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So I did some digging.

    Chandler Catanzaro missed a field goal in his first preseason game last year. Then he went 25 of 30 during the season.

    He only had two XP attempts last preseason, and made both. Went on tto make them all in the season.

  280. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Tops in the league. Screw top 5. This D is gonna be horrendous. Not from lack of talent either. From lack of scheme. Smitty is lookin like a middle school D coordinator out here

  281. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    BucEmUp, I don’t entertain trolls.

  282. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Free yardage every play lmao. How is this guy a coach in this league

  283. SB Says:

    Can we just nab whichever Dolphins Kicker that gets cut please!

  284. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I want to see Shaun Wilson show enough to take Sims spot.

  285. SB Says:

    I know I may be overreacting Bonzai but that last kick from the Dolphins rookie kicker was good from 60 all day!
    Just lamenting the days since Gramatica I guess

  286. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Anyone else tired of the political commercials? I stream most of my tv shows without commercials. This political junk makes me glad I do.

  287. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    SB, Thumbs up

  288. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Seriously. It;s preseason. Take chances and get Griffin some reps!

  289. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I miss Automatica Gramatica too. Kid was great. Matt Bryant was too. I think that;s when our kicking trouble began…when they let Bryant get away. Thanks Dom!

  290. SB Says:

    After watching Griffen, I really hope Fitz doesn’t get hurt.

  291. Lamarcus Says:

    Ryan Griffin is garbage

  292. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So…I guess we have reached to time when the fairweather fans have stopped watching.

    I like watching the camp meat. You never know when one will step up.

  293. JAB83 Says:

    Over under on how much Joe paid for the Plug? Im thinking he was in the booth with some wings from Gabes Place???

  294. Dooshlarue Says:

    What the hell is wrong with Anger?

  295. JAB83 Says:


    Fairweather fans and JW haters!!!

    Only real Bucs fan care at this point!!! Right Realist???

  296. SB Says:

    Me too Bonzai. I am glued to the computer. Don’t get the game here on TV so I have to stream. However I am not leaving till the last whistle blows. 🙂

  297. Durango 95 Says:

    Through 3 qtrs Dolphins have not not converted on 3 rd down. Good job by the Bucs D.

  298. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Not seeing lot of 2 – 4th teamers stepping it up for Tampa Bay.

  299. SB Says:

    Horrible challenge. Understandable though in pre season

  300. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    That’s my Bucs Defense

  301. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Soft azz coverage = slants all day

  302. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Had 3 open WRs that time. Lmao

  303. unbelievable Says:

    All the kicking troubles began when Matt Bryant was dumped.

    It’s been hell since then. One of the worst moves this organization has made to be honest.

  304. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Whitehead again

  305. unbelievable Says:

    SB where are you streaming from? Something official, or something else…?

  306. Walkergodeep Says:

    Whitehead balling

  307. Durango 95 Says:

    RZ Defense comes up big yet again

  308. Rojas Says:

    Agreed. Whitehead is balling, he’s all over the field.

  309. SB Says:


  310. SB Says:

    First Row Sports dot EU

  311. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hudson killed that drive with Griffin. First, he got in the way of the pass catcher, practically causing a tackle. And then on the next play he dropped a pass.

    Sad thing is, it was Griffin’s best looking drive of the night. He actually showed some promise.

  312. MadMax Says:

    unbe, google my feed 4 u

  313. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Bye SB

  314. cmurda Says:

    Whaddya know. We still need a kicker.

  315. SB Says:

    We are just Kicker Cursed!

  316. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL…you can’t make this stuff up. Time to bring the kicker we just cut back.

  317. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    We iced our own kicker lmao. Same ol yucs

  318. SB Says:

    Why do you say that Scotty?

  319. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    24-23 final score.

  320. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Ryan smith burned again

  321. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I said all along that Patrick Murray should have at least been given the chance to compete for the starting job.

    But I’m not quite ready to give up on our new kicker. Yet.

  322. MadMax Says:

    i tried that one you mentioned sb and it wants to download stuff in my browser, bunch of popups too.

  323. SB Says:

    Dadgum Whitehead is hitting!

  324. mark2001 Says:

    Where is all that momentum from that “big win” at the end of last season.

  325. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Bradley Chubb took it to Denver lmao

  326. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Did you watch the first half? That’s where it is.

  327. mark2001 Says:

    Bonzai…do you really think these guys know what they are doing?

  328. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    The immortal Bryce Petty

  329. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow. Scotty called it.

  330. mark2001 Says:

    You haven’t looked at the scoreboard lately, have you Bonzai. Seems like we have that kicking problem solved.

  331. SB Says:

    “Petty didn’t waste any time!”
    Yup now Griffen better not as well!

  332. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    mark2001, yes. Yes I do. And if you don’t, I feel for you, because I’m halfway certain you are not one of the trolls.

  333. SB Says:

    Sh!t Bonzai! Why did you have to do that?

  334. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Now here comes OUR version of RGIII….LMAO!

  335. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    At what point do we discuss a FIRE MIKE SMITH billboard?

  336. SB Says:

    Shoot Bonzai! Why did you have to say that!!?

  337. mark2001 Says:

    Snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory…business as usual.

  338. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    mark2001, you seem to forget that I said earlier in the year that the kicker was the only free agent I sisn’t like.

    And seriously, you do know its 5th stringers in there right now, right?

  339. mark2001 Says:

    Not a troll Bonzai…just seems familiar, doesn’t it?

  340. mark2001 Says:

    Giving the kicking game another chance? Could we do it this time? Let’s knock this one in and forget trying another this game.

  341. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    If Catanzaro misses this close I will quit lmao

  342. mark2001 Says:

    Seriously…when we played like we did last year, even the preseason victories are important.

  343. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hah! Cool! I guess Scotty did not call it afterall!

  344. cmurda Says:

    Gotta give props to Ryan Griffin. He’s the player of the game. Managed the game great. The concern as it is every year is our lack of defensive depth.

  345. Mike Evans Goat Says:


  346. mark2001 Says:

    FG.. Gooooooood… wow. Let’s start a trend Bucs… a game is never out of reach…

  347. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    There is still 23 seconds left

  348. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    mark2001, believe me, I think we all feel your kicking woes.

    But hey…we have to hope…right? Otherwise, we find no enjoyment.

  349. mark2001 Says:

    Some good practice for the corners and safeties.

  350. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    How ’bout dat Buc fans….

  351. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Now they are gonna say smith did good lmao

  352. mark2001 Says:

    Yes…the sweet smell of victory.

  353. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Preseason may not count for squat, but a win sure feels better than a loss.

  354. mark2001 Says:

    The sweet smell of success.

  355. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Pretty entertaining game

  356. SB Says:

    I agree Scotty. Very entertaining.
    Why did you bid me farewell earlier?
