  3. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Koetter might find a way to play his little man crush in Ryan Griffin… Smh. I’m I the only one that sees Winston is the best QB we’ve EVER had? Wtf. Just win, damnit!


    Joe I read rojo is active is that true?

  5. Buc50 Says:

    If Ryan Griffin plays today, it’s because the starter and backup are hurt.

  6. ben Says:

    Lets go Fitz, lets go !! Fear the beard

  7. Mattisfinn Says:

    Ryan Griffin is inactive ya dingus.

  9. VegasBuc Says:

    Let’s put away the best defense in the NFL today and redeem our lethal offense to the NFL world.

  10. Rossta 61 Says:

    Speak Softy and carry a (@##&#@% ) big stick!!!!!!

  11. Rossta 61 Says:

    Come on Bucs! speak softly and carry that (*&$#2@#) big stick !!!!

  12. Easy Says:

    Lets see if Vea can push the pocket and disrupt this run oriented team

  13. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Bears win today. Bucs secondary is a mess with 70% of the unit hurt and inactive. Had to bring in a guy off the street and pull up someone from the practice squad.. Injuries don’t stop there, D Line is banged up. Also, Bucs running game is so bad that’s RoJo is forced into action. Bears QB Trubisky isn’t very good, but the Bears can run the ball and are stacked on defense. Bears also don’t have an absolute crap GM or coach. Fire Licht, Cut Koetter, Drop the Mike. The only way the Bucs pull this off is through Todd Monken figuring out a way to put up a bunch of points when Jameis comes in to save the day. Bucs drop to 2-2 on the year with Jameis being set up for failure and the fan base turning further against him. Bears 24 Bucs 2

  14. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Chilly here in Illinois! Vita Vea should be comfortable for sure.

  15. EA Says:

    21-0 first quarter, bears won’t know what hit them.

  16. NJBucsFan Says:

    @EA I like it

  17. Slugglife Says:

    Keep the negativity and turmoil you have in your own shorty life away from the rest of us who are trying to enjoy this magic carpet ride.

    If you love to be a loser, do it by yourself.

  18. Ndog Says:

    So Fitzpatrick is starting I sure hope they didn’t screw this up, but my gut tells me they did, royally.

  19. Slugglife Says:

    Ole Jameis Almighty- just admit you’re a Bears fan. It’s ok. We all like different squads.

  20. Casual Observer Says:

    Fitzmagic is back!

  21. Bird Says:


    Jamies almighty is Tmax

    Just under new name cause he is scared. Troll

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Go Bucs!
    Hey, hey Tampa Bay
    The Bucs know how to shine
    Hey, hey U.S.A.
    The Bucs know how to shine
    If we’re in trouble that’s O.K.
    We can pull it out
    Because we know we’re on the top
    When we stand up
    Stand up and shout!
    Hey, hey Tampa Bay
    The Bucs know how to shine
    Hey, hey U.S.A.
    The Bucs know how to shine
    Give a cheer for the Buccaneers
    Go Bucs!

  23. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    It’s time, baby! Go Bucs!

  24. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Go Big V!
    Go RoJo!!
    OL is critical today!!!

  25. Bird Says:


  26. TJ Says:

    LETS GO BUCS!!!!!

  27. Bird Says:

    Probably be ugly game with nasty conditions in Chicago.

    Bucs offense is filthy though. If they can put up huge points against this defense , then they can score on anyone.

  28. Jeff Says:

    Bucs can’t handle the 3-4 and this defense is special. This will get ugly. Bucs lose in a big way today. Wish I was wrong but this is the Bears game to lose. If their D is on, nothing the Bucs can do will matter.

  29. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Should have started Jamies!!!!!

  30. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I too am picking the bears to win cause of their defense but I sure hope monken calls a helluva game and fitz doesn’t turn it over

    if those two things happen…….then the bucs should win

  31. ATrain Says:

    Go Bucs

    All Non Fans leave now

  32. BuccoDav Says:

    More garbage time pressure for 93!

  33. Bird Says:

    Trubiski can only run. Geez. That s Kwon read. Evans read it

  34. ATrain Says:

    Stay in your lanes

  35. Buc believer Says:

    Our D is so f ing bad! Trebinsky looked like Bart Sanders!

  36. DBS Says:

    The main complainer will be here before long.

  37. donuts Says:

    ugly D

  38. Bird Says:


  39. Buc believer Says:


  40. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOVE our Bucs and misdirection….LMAO!

  41. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    If Dirk can’t fire Mike smith then he deserves to go too

  42. cmurda Says:

    FIRE MIKE SMITH. The run on 2nd down was all Mike Smith. Zero gap control. That’s humiliating. Zero defense on this team, zero chance.

  43. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Lmao wow how much worse can this defense be.

    Trubisky gonna look like a HOF today people.

  44. MadMax Says:

    really D?

  45. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    gonna be a long day for the secondary

  46. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Fire Mike Smith

  47. NJBucsFan Says:

    Well can’t blame that blown coverage on Conte…who is the target now?

  48. Matts17 Says:

    That was easy.

  49. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    You CANT make this stuff up!

  50. Chris in WA Says:

    Fire Mike Smith now

  51. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    i agree

    fire mike smith

  52. Destinjohnny Says:

    If u look behind the curtain with Evans there are a lot of plays like that

  53. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Whose coverage assignment was that?

  54. donuts Says:

    No pressure up front….I thought this was the off season focus??

  55. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Smith is going to get Koetter fired. WORST DEFENSIVE SCHEME IN HISTORY.

  56. BucThis Says:

    How long do we have to put up with Mike Smith?

  57. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    The bucs have ZERO discipline on defense from run lanes to isiah johnson as your friggin safety if only there was an FA all pro available or future all pro in derwin james in the draft

  58. Easy Says:

    LOL can’t blame that one on Conte

  59. Jeff Says:

    I told ALL of you this would be a blowout for the Bears. Mike Smith is hot garbage and this will be a sad, sad loss for Bucs fans. Now watch what this beard D can do. Fitz won’t last the game. Go get a body bag for the bearded one.

  60. jmarkbuc Says:

    Could the D look any less uninterested?

  61. unbelievable Says:

    My gut told me to pick the Bears this game.

    Less than 10 minutes ago, I switched my pick to the Bucs.

    LOL what the h3ll was I thinking? This defense is beyond pathetic.

  62. Tackleblockwin Says:

    D is embarrassing.

  63. Season Is Over Says:

    Gameplan against Buc defense. Need a first down? Run at McCoy. Need a TD? Throw a pass. Game!

  64. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I called it earlier, career day for tribusky

  65. Bird Says:

    I am more qualified then mike smith.

    The owner and GM need to stand up and tell coach he needs to go.
    This is unacceptable. They have 27th ranked offense and score in 2 minutes.
    Trubiski is hot garbage

  66. ElioT Says:

    Mike Smith is stealing money.

    I’ve had enough of this guy.

    Let’s go Fitz!

  67. Steven007 Says:

    FFS… We make a living out of making mediocre quarterbacks look like they’re special.

  68. ATrain Says:

    I can’t wait for Jamies to Start

    Either he comes out and proves me wrong

    OR he comes out and can’t hit long ball


    We can send him packing

    SO the Crab Leg Crew will shut up

  69. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hey, dummies. Justin Evans fell down. It was his guy.

    Not mike Smith’s fault

  70. Rayjay1122 Says:

    There is plenty of talent to be that bad. FIRE Mike Smith please.

  71. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    the secondary is pathetic

  72. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Fire Mike Smith now

  73. bucsDsucks Says:

    when you play tampa your a HOF’er lmao nothing to see her folks same D for the past 15 years

  74. John B Says:

    The d continues to be pathetic- did they even watch the Bears tape this week?

  75. cmurda Says:

    All I heard from JBF posters was that the Bears offense is soft and we should easily contain them. The problem is the Bucs D is softer than any offense. Mike Smith is a joke as is his scheme. He will prevent our great offense from being able to take over games. Now, we have to face a real defense already losing by a TD.

  76. Mike Johnson Says:

    Will somebody PLEASE..Fire Mike Smith?

  77. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Touchdown Bears! To a wide open receiver after Jason Licht draft pick Justin Evans falls down. 6 play drive 39 yard TD. Bears lead 7-0.

  78. Season Is Over Says:

    Mike Smith is the worst coach in the entire league. People actually think a defense is supposed to look like this after three years. Lmao!

  79. THETRUTH Says:

    Shout up with Derwin JAMES already , he is GONE !! Maybe you can trade for him on PlayStation but this is real life and he isn’t coming to play here

  80. Sweeptheleg Says:

    3 and out?

  81. BucThis Says:

    Can we start a fund to put up a billboard to fire mike smith????

  82. T REX Says:

    Mike Smith is garbage. If Dirk wont fire him then they both go.

  83. ATrain Says:

    McCoy should be saying

    My bad Fans My bad

    They only people he hasn’t apologized to

  84. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    only the bucs secondary can make crappy quarterbacks look like John Elway

  85. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Bonzai: Evans was a highly criticized pick. Leave it to Licht to pick guys who fall down.

  86. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    The bucs will turn mitch into case keenum & derek anderson today, and jordan howard may go for 150, there are HUGE running lanes as howies kid is destroying the ice cream man, how derwin james and kerryon james doing

  87. Sweeptheleg Says:

    My god this is gonna be ugly

  88. Season Is Over Says:

    ROJO got tackled coming off the team bus.

  89. ATrain Says:

    Koetter called that play

  90. Moreon Says:

    Not looking goid

  91. Bird Says:

    Mack is already abusing Dotson

  92. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This is gonna get ugly QUICK

  93. jmarkbuc Says:

    One series and Trubisky has a career long TD

  94. ATrain Says:

    Throw it long

  95. donuts Says:

    Horrible play calling

  96. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    PLEASE no 3 and outs

  97. ElioT Says:

    Perfect start…

  98. Moreon Says:

    Starting off pretty bad

  99. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Bucs back to being the Bucs.

  100. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Running game still terrible

  101. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    omg…..i feel like drinking now

  102. cmurda Says:

    That;s what a defense should look like. Pretty ugly offensive gameplan against a team that is susceptible to the pass. Fitz with the wrong read and a pathetic throw. This is really not how a good team starts a game. Major, major concerns here.

  103. Season Is Over Says:

    I mean if we actually had an NFL RB we wouldn’t have to throw 20 yard passes all game. Who was it that pimped Barber for two years and ran Martin out of town?

  104. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    ryan jensen was 10 yds downfield that last play classic bucs

  105. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Bucs will be lucky to score 10 points

  106. Bird Says:

    Mike smiths brain activity :


  107. rza Says:

    if Bucs had an average defense, they would be 100% in playoff. Fire Mike Smith!

  108. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    The Bears defense looking dominant. 2 plays no gain. 3 and out on an errant throw. Boooooo Fitz Booo Blame Fitz. Booooo

  109. Moreon Says:

    Might need to hope for something from special team

  110. BucThis Says:

    Someone tell Dirk to Fire Smith. Someone tell smith to go back and write books because all these offenses know his defensive looks

  111. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    anyone want a drink?

  112. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow, are only the idiot trolls here today?

    Are you Bucs fans or crybabies???

  113. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Yea all these idiots that said Martin was the problem and how great Barber was lmao. Idiots.

  114. Phillybuc Says:

    Cool, looks like the Bucs decided not to show up today.

  115. Moreon Says:

    Short leash on Fitz today?

  116. University of Seffner Says:

    We’re in for a long day

  117. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  118. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    haha love the ppl who support licht has the greatest gm, guy sucks built the worst nfl defense and drafts like he is stevie wonder throwing darts

  119. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Rebel grapefruit IPA

  120. Buc68 Says:

    4 out of his last 5 pass attempts have been dropped by the opponent. 1 completed bubble screen.

  121. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    if fitz doesnt produce by halftime

    jameis is coming in

  122. Season Is Over Says:

    Gerald McCoy is going to take this game over. Just wait and see. Lmao.

  123. Moreon Says:

    We’ll get em on penalties

  124. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Defensive talent is ok, the just coaching sucks

  125. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    vita clogged that lane

  126. Bird Says:

    Vita vea stance is funny

  127. Season Is Over Says:

    What the Bears defense said when they saw who the starting RB for the Bucs was. Hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

  128. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Is it just me? Or is this game in slow motion?

  129. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Vita V!

  130. SteveK Says:

    Major bye week changes to our defense if it doesn’t shape up now. Trubisky shouldn’t torch us today. If he does, then we need a change.

  131. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Vita forcing that stop on 1st down

  132. ElioT Says:

    Thank god for JPP.

  133. cmurda Says:

    We needed that 3 and out. Now our defense needs to score and get us back to square

  134. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Vita V a beast! 🙂

  135. Bird Says:

    Called it.

    jPP with 1

    Nassib playing tackle

  136. Season Is Over Says:

    I thought McCoy was the one that was supposed to shine if we put someone next to him?

  137. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Vea is a load. If nothing else he will wear that line down

  138. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Good job D line

  139. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    i did too

  140. unbelievable Says:

    At least JPP showed to play today.

  141. Season Is Over Says:

    16 million dollar decoy.

  142. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    If Trubisky was any good, he completes the second down throw. Vinny Curry with the sack. Punt team.

  143. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    JPP baby!!

  144. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    JPP is gonna be MVP, glad he has heart and not collecting a check

  145. Jbeachbuc Says:


  146. Buc68 Says:

    That was cool to see.. Vita stopped the constant backward movement of our DL!

  147. Moreon Says:

    JPP defensive MVP

  148. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    its sad that carl nassib is getting so much playing time being here less than 60 days

    and noah spence is pretty much benched 🙁

  149. Bird Says:

    Vita vea may be the biggest butt plug ever created.

    Looks like he will play 1st downs.

  150. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    That’s hillarious Bird 🙂

  151. Anonymous Says:

    Field looks super slippery. Hope our running game filally shows up today!

  152. cmurda Says:

    Of course a holding on the return. Remember that last week. Thanks Johnson. By the way, I’ve been watching Johnson and he looks horrendous at coverage. If we thought Conte was dreadful, I have major concerns with Johnson. The 2nd down throw was bad bu Trub. That was on Johnson’s guy

  153. Moreon Says:

    Keep your eyes on Fitz and Evans

  154. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Holding on the punt return backs the Bucs up deep.

  155. unbelievable Says:

    @BucsAnthem agreed

  156. Season Is Over Says:

    Noah Presence is part of the “Terrible Twos”. They have their own spot on the bench.

  157. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    JPP is more impactful than our 100 million dollar soft GMC

  158. King C Says:

    Where are all the trolls who said JPP was no effort and stealing money?
    Die off trolls!

  159. ATrain Says:

    No late hit

  160. Moreon Says:


  161. Walter Says:

    McCoy with the pressure up the middle, preventing Trubisky from stepping up to avoid the edge rushers. Nice!

  162. ATrain Says:

    Really Evans

  163. Bird Says:

    Did you see that divot he took out of turf.

    Got to catch that though

    We are gonna throw 60 times

  164. unbelievable Says:

    Evans getting KY hands again this year?

  165. Season Is Over Says:

    ROJO thinks he can take it to the house.

  166. Jbeachbuc Says:

    I think Mitch was to worried abt 93… forgot that JPP lives on that side of the street now

  167. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Mike Evans with the drop. Seems like the turf messed him up.

  168. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Vita V keeps the QB from stepping up into the pocket

  169. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    offense sucks so bad today

  170. unbelievable Says:

    Dangerous pass right there.

  171. Bird Says:


  172. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Fitz finds Jackson for the first down Tampa Bay!

  173. Season Is Over Says:

    Barber almost ran for 2.4 yards on one run to improve his ypc average but it was taken back by penalty. Hopefully, next time.

  174. aj Says:

    why did they let Sims go when the running game is so bad? I understand he’s not the best, but at least he’s been successful.

  175. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Stop running the ball!!!!

  176. cmurda Says:

    Again, penalties on the offense kill drives

  177. unbelievable Says:

    Another damn holding call? Gimme a break

  178. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Wow benenoch

  179. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    End of that drive

  180. Defense Rules Says:

    Key for the Bucs today was for the OLine to step up. Someone should tell them they need to do that, ’cause so far they’ve sucked.

  181. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Peyton Barber runs for a short gain, Flag on the play. Holding Bucs. 2nd 15.

  182. Sweeptheleg Says:

    And punt.

    Now this is the Bucs I know.

  183. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Didn’t even call a play to attempt the 1st

  184. ATrain Says:

    Koetter has to be calling offense

    No long ball

  185. unbelievable Says:

    Benenoch has been abused every week.

    We need a new RG badly.

  186. ElioT Says:


    If they could even generate a below average running game….

  187. Matts17 Says:

    Huge hole at right guard. Huge.

  188. Bird Says:

    Bears defense may be better then Rams

  189. Moreon Says:

    Bucs had to play to punt after the holding penalty

  190. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    wanna drink?

  191. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    We can see who’s defense is goin to get tired early

  192. Season Is Over Says:

    Barber is a number one back. After three seasons I’m convinced. They have been at the top of the league each season he has been here.

  193. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Hicks flings Fitz for a Sack. 3rd 22. Short gain. Punt Team. Bucs racking up the penalty yards.

  194. cmurda Says:

    We are just too easy to defend now. Everybody and their mother knows we can’t run the ball. Peyton has had lanes. He’s too busy put his head down to see them. I want Ronald Jones. Barber hasn’t done a thing in 3+ weeks.

  195. aj Says:

    well, it’s time to see evan smith at guard again.

  196. BucThis Says:

    Benenouch “what’s a block” is more of a liability then conte

  197. Season Is Over Says:

    Is this why McCoy didn’t make the top 100 list?

  198. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Licht didnt build the OL/RB has no clue on talent or personnel, anyone who saw barber aa an nfl starting RB or better than doug martin has not much to stand on

  199. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Still first quarter Bears got a lucky touchdown dude fell

  200. Moreon Says:

    Looked like a chop block

  201. aj Says:

    Unfortunately, Kappa is a project. A good one I think. But, he just doesn’t have an NFL body yet. It will take a year or two for the strength and conditioning guys to get him there. He definitely has the frame.

  202. Season Is Over Says:

    I see we are deploying the Mike Smith stop nothing ever defense today. At least ROJO is active and we have hope for a running game.

  203. Matts17 Says:

    Defense has zero discipline. That’s all Smith.

  204. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    fire mike smith…

  205. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Wobbling punt covered up by Tarik Cohen after hitting a Bears player.

  206. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    ATrain Says
    “Koetter has to be calling offense”

    It’s Monk. Has been all season. Koetter said so on total access. He doesn’t talk to the player on the headset anymore. Too many voices causes a distraction.

    So the bad play calling is all on Monk and Smith.

  207. Season Is Over Says:

    Mike Smith is more effective from the box.

  208. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Another penalty, great discipline we got going on

  209. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This $hit is too easy. How is Smith still a flucking coach in the league?

  210. Bird Says:

    Our dline is already gas ed

  211. cmurda Says:

    We shot our load after 2 games but this is going to be a long year. No team can win games especially against good teams without a defense and we have none.

  212. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    First down yardage on a run followed by another Buccaneer penalty. 1st and 5 becomes 2nd and a long yard.

  213. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Bucs just look slow like a hangover

  214. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Guys are just wide the Fluck open EVERYWHERE

  215. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    mike smith



  216. Season Is Over Says:

    I think if we invest 50 more million in players next to McCoy he will be the player we always wanted him to be.

  217. Bucs14 Says:

    Well, back to typical Bucs football

  218. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This is gonna be a blowout for sure.

  219. Buc believer Says:

    Soon to be 14-0

  220. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Trubisky at 80% completion rate yet?

  221. Moreon Says:

    Bears are handling the Bucs on this drive

  222. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Ice Cream man having fun on that play

  223. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rojo fumbles.

  224. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    this is absolutely terrible

  225. Bird Says:

    I think Kwon would be better outside. He is terrible on reads.

  226. ATrain Says:


    Even the Defense is playing different from first two games

    Is Allen that much apart of this defense

  227. Sweeptheleg Says:

    On,y the Bucs can make a crap QB look amazing.

    Trubisky sucks as s.

  228. Buccluck Says:

    Whose available as a defensive coordinator?

  229. Ndog Says:

    Brent Grimes is straight trash!

  230. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Can’t stop the run, can’t stop the pass. WOW!

  231. Moreon Says:

    Touchdown cmon Bucs

  232. TBTeddy Says:

    Well Fitz better be ready to ball out this next possession or we’ In trouble

  233. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GMC already has started his disappearing act

  234. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Fluck the Bucs.

  235. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Put a fork in em. It’s over

  236. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Tarik Cohen carries for first down yardage. Bucs DLine getting pushed back. 1st down throw for 9 2nd and 1. Bears driving with momentum. Tarik Cohen takes it for a big gainer. Bears getting closer to paydirt. Bucs D looking bad.

  237. Buc believer Says:

    What did I say??? 14-0

  238. Season Is Over Says:

    I hope McCoy is proud of the spectacular start to the season he captained.

  239. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    I take back my statement their offense isn’t better than our defense!

  240. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    hahaha great pass rush grear coverage = the next great nfl qb MITCH

  241. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I told yall the bucs secondary will make crappy QBs look like John Elway

  242. BucThis Says:


  243. Buc1987 Says:

    Is that Drew Brees?

    No it’s Mitch Trubisky.

  244. ATrain Says:

    Playing for the Jamies Return

    No way a team goes two games awesome

    Now this

  245. Bighck61 Says:

    This game is over ! Time to see if Rays can win last game

  246. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Koetter will have to put Jameis in. Fitz isn’t mobile eough to avoid sacks.

  247. Moreon Says:

    Don’t think Fitz will be able to pull this one out if d can’t do their job

  248. jmarkbuc Says:

    Making Trubrisky look all pro

  249. MadMax Says:

    yep, our db’s sucking…..gonna lose this one….oh well still have many games left.

  250. Bucs14 Says:

    Bears struggle in redzone…….until they play the Bucs.

  251. Bird Says:

    Mike smith

    Uhhmmmmmm. Hello. Wake up.

    Chicago offense will be ranked 15th after this game.

  252. Bucsfan77 Says:

    Mike smith needs to retire or be forcibly retired at halftime

  253. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Fire Mike Smith!!!

  254. Buc believer Says:

    Mike Smith can make ANY QB look like a pro bowler!!

  255. ChanEpic Says:

    This defense is offensive

  256. Rob Says:

    This is a rout.

  257. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    where’s captain blowout at?

    GMC……you already disappeared

  258. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    A certain person who has access to the DC should start asking the tough questions. Like “Why are u such a trash @ss DC?”

  259. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Trubisky hasn’t thrown more than 2 tds in a game and he’s already thrown 2!

  260. cmurda Says:

    Unless this coaching staff gets a clue and I doubt it will happen. Dirk and Licht are both gone after this year. An average QB is lighting this defense up…again. And there is no more excuses for Licht, these are his guys getting owned. Where’s Vinny Curry? MJ is not an NFL cornerback.

  261. Moreon Says:

    Hard to watch

  262. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    This is going to be a SLAUGHTER


    We are going to get f****** smoked this game! This is Mike Smith defense absolutely sucks ass!!!

  264. BucsBandit Says:

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHA 4-12 here we come.

  265. 911bucs Says:

    2 weeks after today to get a new defensive coordinator and system in place, Glazers have to realize there’s a problem.

  266. Jbeachbuc Says:

    No defense no playoffs

  267. EA Says:

    I’m meant 21-0 bears first quarter guys.
    That’s the problem with Dirky, guys went to Chicago thinking they’re on vacation.

  268. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    “They’re talking about the Chicago offense for a change” LOL

  269. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy must want to see Winston come back in with this kind of performance.

  270. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Another first down. Bears in the red zone. First play inside is a Touchdown! MJ Stewart, another one of Licht’s terrible draft picks gets toasted for a TD. Bears lead 14/0

  271. Sweeptheleg Says:

    We don’t have a QB on the roster that can beat a top 5 D.

    So shut up FSU homers. Winston would crap the bed too.

  272. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Fire Mike Smith!!!!!!

  273. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I get so sick of this crap with the Bucs. SMH

  274. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    I smell a fumble

  275. CanadianBucsfan Says:


  276. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bucs will lose this game. WHY? Their DEFENSE Sucks to holy Hell!!
    Paging..Mike Smith..Get your a.. Out of the pressbox and do some coaching on the GD Field of play!!

  277. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    We will be in last place by the end of the day….AGAIN!

  278. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Season Is Over, hey stupid.

    Mccoy is not a captain.

  279. Easy Says:

    LMAO this is pathetic. Mike Smith should stay in Chicago

  280. Pit Says:

    Ok finally gave up on Mike Smith. He needs to go.

  281. Tampalax Says:

    Never been that guy before but Mike Smith may need to go mid-season. You can’t tell me every player on our D is as bad as they seem. Players who have had success before regress under him.

  282. TDTB Says:

    Fire Smitty. Tell Koetter to quit holding Monken back. It’s apparent he’s put a throttle on the offense.

  283. Gt40bear Says:

    Mitch EFFING Trubiski is being made to look like Drew Brees by this bunch of EFFING clowns! Mike Smith should be fired NOW! To thell wth waiting on after the game! This is a JOKE! He and his staff/scheme are going to get Dirk & Jason FIRED!

  284. cmurda Says:

    Another crap performace by the O on this drive and Dirk has to put Winston in.

  285. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Good gain by arber. 7 yarxs

  286. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    The bucs secondary really really really sucks……….just throw it all day, you’ll score atleast 30 points

  287. SteveK Says:

    How can the defense be some horrible? This needs immediate rectification. Unacceptable, putrid, and just giving up the booty to a mediocre QB.

  288. theodore Says:

    Perhaps Mike Smith will retire during halftime.

  289. D-Rome Says:

    Bucs need to make a change at defensive coordinator after the bye. I’ve had enough of Mike Smith. Bucs continue to be worst defense in NFL.

  290. ElioT Says:

    So the Bears offense had 4 TDs in three games?

    What are the odds they get at least 4 against the Bucs D today?

    It’s not Mike Smith’s fault though…

  291. Bird Says:

    Yah boy.

    Need 7

  292. unbelievable Says:

    Brent Grimes, will Gholston and mike smith can all stay in Chicago after today.

  293. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    When your DC says the whole league is struggling against the pass tells me this mofo is in complete denial he’s the problem and that reflects to the players. What a joke. You’re only as good as your defense. Get Smitty out of here!

  294. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    finally unleash the beast!!!

  295. Bucs_Fan_77 Says:

    Can’t run the ball and their D sucks! Mike Smith has to go

  296. Season Is Over Says:

    Sorry, but when you make 16 million dollars a year not being a QB and not designated a captain? Hahahahahahahaha. I fail to see your point.

  297. Miguel Grande Says:

    Ronalld “Rocket” Jones


  298. cmurda Says:

    OK, so much for Jones. WOW

  299. Bird Says:

    Rojo making impression

  300. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    soryy rojo is a bust

  301. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Mr. jones is back!

  302. Season Is Over Says:

    OHNO drops the pass. Lmao! You don’t say. No one saw that coming.

  303. cmurda Says:

    Fitz is back to being a career backup. Put Winston in.

  304. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    And that is why he doesn’t play

  305. Buc1987 Says:



  306. Season Is Over Says:

    Adrian Peterson thinks he would have had that one.

  307. ATrain Says:

    Playing for Jamies Return

    No Way a Team changes this much

  308. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rojo anxious. Fitz sucks. Winston would have made that pass.

  309. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Rojo was a great draft pick. F U Licht

  310. cmurda Says:

    Now everybody is going to say take the FG but Dirk and Monken should grow a pair, call a real NFL play right now and score a TD.

  311. BuccoDav Says:

    One drop makes ROJO a bust? Damn…

  312. Destinjohnny Says:

    Our high 2nd round pick can’t catch….

  313. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    wow big play just to get 3 points. Think this is 1st game we didn’t score in the 1st quarter

  314. Defense Rules Says:

    Two wasted plays to RoJo.

  315. ATrain Says:

    Put Jamies in then maybe Evans will actually hold on got the ball

  316. Snell isle buc Says:

    All the people calling for Rojo can shut up now , you just saw first hand why he hasn’t been on the field

  317. unbelievable Says:

    RoJo ended that drive for us.

    Thanks rook.

  318. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jackson gets loose for a big gainer. Easy throw and catch puts the Bucs inside the Bears redzone. RoJo finally touches the rock and gets 5. RoJo’s second touch is a dropped pass. We get a glimpse as to why he hasn’t played. 3rd and 5. Bad throw but Fitz, shouldve been 6. Jameis makes that throw in his sleep. Bucs settle for a FG try after 1 big play followed by nada.

  319. ATrain Says:

    Koetter is definitely call this offense

  320. Destinjohnny Says:

    One drop????
    U clearly didn’t go to any practices

  321. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I don’t know if Rojo will be good or not…but it was his first pass play. Cut him some slack. He’s got to be nervoue.

  322. Easy Says:

    Jaboo gonna play the second half.

  323. Defense Rules Says:

    @Bonzai … “Rojo anxious. Fitz sucks. Winston would have made that pass.” I’m sure you’re being facetious Bonzai. Fitz hit him dead center.

  324. Bucs14 Says:

    Jameis comes in 2nd half and rallies Bucs to win anyone?……Nah, thought not.

  325. Ndog Says:

    Can we please just play our best players ie Jameis, Barber and not Grimes on defense.

  326. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Almost blocked!

  327. GhostofSchiano Says:


  328. Moreon Says:

    Even the players looked disappointed on the field goal

  329. SteveK Says:

    Go RoJo!

  330. Back2bucball Says:

    Ron Jones is a bum.. Mike Smith is a bum… Caleb is a bum… Grimes has turned into a bum… And kwon better learn how to read plays!

  331. Season Is Over Says:

    We will need Mr. Magoo’s fourth quarter comeback ability.

  332. Architek Says:

    Y’all cried for Jones and he dropped a wide open ball in the flats with no one around him. LOL

  333. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Defense Rules, I was talking about the end zone throw.

  334. ATrain Says:

    Jamies would have made that pass

    It hit him in the hands

    The receiver has to want to catch it

  335. Buc1987 Says:

    Is no one talking about the CLEAN POCKET and the throw 3 miles over OJ’s head?

    Oh it’s about Rojo….

  336. Not there yet Says:

    Second rate coaching staff. Head coach has to be called out before he plays his 2nd round pick. I’m not even mad he dropped it, something your not asked to do in college duh you need reps. Mike Evans and oj dropping passes.

  337. Moreon Says:

    I hope Winston rides the pine the entire season go fitz

  338. Moreon Says:

    Reciver was wide open

  339. ATrain Says:

    Bull Crap Penalty

  340. Season Is Over Says:

    I think Mike Smith should come down to the sideline so he can see how bad they are in person. Remember them leaning on the crutch of all they needed was a pass rusher for years to explain the joke of a defense?

  341. cmurda Says:

    Our defense. LOL. Even when their below average QB misses an easy pass, defensive penalty. BS call too.

  342. Moreon Says:

    Wtf defense

  343. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Whew… FG almost blocked but it counts. 14-3

  344. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  345. ATrain Says:

    This WHOLE TEAM is playing for Jamies


    No one plays that far off

  346. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  347. cmurda Says:

    zero pressure from DL and our secondary including Grimes is garbage.

  348. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Isaiah Johnson again with the hold

  349. T REX Says:

    Fire Mike Smith!

  350. ATrain Says:

    Put Jamies in

    McCoy sucks

  351. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Wow. And our first round pick is sitting on the sidelines. Bad news. I have no words for this $hit

  352. ATrain Says:

    You want to see elite JOE. Look at Mack

  353. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    defense has no clue on pass calls or coverages that evans second coverage bust…… i know what mccoy said , “ lets have fun guys”

  354. BucsNeedNewFans Says:

    When is enough enough for this defense? Mike Smith should not be allowed on the plane ride home!

  355. Season Is Over Says:

    Wide open receivers. It is all part of the plan.

  356. Chris in WA Says:

    Grimes might as well be playing Safety with how far off the Line of Scrimmage he is.

    What is this Mike Smith???

  357. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    told yall this defense will make crappy QBs look like JOhn Elway

  358. SteveK Says:

    Defense! What the hell!? Get gashed much?!

  359. cmurda Says:

    Trubisky is back there for 10 seconds. The biggest failure is #93 and this DL. Humiliatingly terrible.

  360. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    If they don’t fire smith I’m done with this garbage

  361. Bird Says:

    This is embarrassing.

  362. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    “How does a guy get this wide open??” LOL fire Mike Smith!

  363. Moreon Says:

    This sucks where is the d at time to watch the fins

  364. Destinjohnny Says:

    There Is your Justin Evans again

  365. EA Says:

    I like our new D line coach, our front four is relentless this year.

  366. Phillybuc Says:

    McCoy please no more pep talks

  367. mark2001 Says:

    Come on guys…we already beat some prognosticators….we can’t do any worse than 2-14.

  368. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOL….WOW! Block that extra point

  369. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis

  370. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Look it Trulitzkymagic!!!!! Thanks to the Bucs defense!

  371. Season Is Over Says:

    Has Mike Smith defense stopped anything ever? I mean seriously. Schiano is laughing at this clown. David thanks Mike Smith for ruining his career.

  372. Buc1987 Says:

    This is disgusting!

  373. Chris in WA Says:

    Let me do the Todd Wright fantasy posdcasts for the rest of the season:

    Start whoever is playing the Bucs Defense at QB and WR. You are guaranteed 40+points.

  374. Bucs14 Says:

    Bucs defense makes every QB seem like an All-Pro. Fire Mike Smith today!

  375. SteveK Says:

    Wow this defense sucks out loud.

  376. jmarkbuc Says:

    This secondary is lost

  377. Buc believer Says:

    How the F….ck does Mike Smith stay employed!!!!

  378. NOBUCDEF Says:

    Mitchell Trubisky… really.. no way we win this game… Defense again non existent..gee shocker… Mike Smith BLOWS

  379. Jbeachbuc Says:


  380. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I love that we deferred with an elite offense and terrible defense… Sets the tone is the game. Bad

  381. TDTB Says:

    David just got jobbed

  382. GhostofSchiano Says:

    This is disgusting

  383. BucThis Says:

    This sh!t is embarrassing

  384. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis,,,,,

  385. ATrain Says:

    No Way

    These guys don’t like Jamies in the side line


  386. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Did the defense not get on the plane?

  387. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    I’m done with Mike Smith. This is sad.
    Have your dang guys prepared!

  388. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Nothing tricky about that

  389. garbs65 Says:

    How can our defense be this bad. Unbelievable.

  390. mark2001 Says:

    A Kicking two weeks in a row by two foundering teams…what does that tell you. Maybe we can hypnotize Chicago into going to sleep the second half like Pittsburgh did last week.

  391. University of Seffner Says:

    Not surprised

  392. cmurda Says:

    NOOOOOOO Pressure. The most amazing stat indictment of Mike Smith is how confused our own players are on defense but how incredibly easy to read our defense is for opposing offenses. It’s time for a whole regime change. Dirk, Licht and Smith all are gone. Keep Monken.

  393. Wigg Says:

    Can we just fire Mike Smith already please Buccaneers 👊🏼

  394. The Real Drew Says:

    Mike Smith got fired in Atlanta for bad defenses. Gonna happen here.

  395. Season Is Over Says:

    Sorry, the quarterback can’t throw for an NFL record again to actually win the game to cover for the historically bad defense. The defense would be just as good if they all just sat on the field at once letting the other team do as they will.

  396. CanadianBucsfan Says:


  397. THETRUTH Says:

    Blitz !!!!!!!!

  398. Snell Isle Says:

    Haha you losers wondered why conte was starting ?!

  399. unbelievable Says:

    As I’ve been saying all year;

    Our linebackers are pathetic against the pass.

    Then again so is this entire defense.

    Mike smith needs to go.

  400. T REX Says:

    I hate Mike Smith

  401. LongSeason Says:

    Hello. Back to reality. Melted butter could cut through our defense. Why is Mike ‘I can’t coach defense’ still our D coordinator? Wow. We are going to be blown out against the Bears. Although I would rather lose every game than have Winston for a QB.

  402. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Bears get a holding call on first down. Bears big gainer. Nice play by them. TD saving tackle. Bucs stop Cohen for no gain on first down, but Cohen catches a long pass on second down. First and goal Bears at the 4. Bears first penalty of the game puts them back to the 9. Bears best quarter and change of all year. Lol… Tarik Cohen casually catches a slant and walks in. TD Bears. Trubisky looks like an MVP candidate. 21-3 Bears.

  403. Bucfan Says:

    Please fire Mike smith

  404. Jeff Says:

    I told EVERYONE his would happen! Bucs coaching is unacceptable on defense. Smith must be fired on Monday. How could it be any worse? Another double digit losing season, folks.

  405. Cs2 Says:

    Jesus Christ this game makes me wanna kill myself

  406. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Jameis in at halftime 🤷🏻‍♀️

  407. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey Ira- this looks like more than a pop gun offense. How about a cannon?

  408. Moreon Says:

    Hope the cow need are watching, with play like this the fans are jumping off. Or maybe they don’t cate

  409. Craig Says:

    Fire Mike Smith!!!!! If this fool is our coach anymore this year I quit, Jameis may play second half.

  410. Bucs Guy Says:

    We look like the 2017 Bucs defense,

  411. SteveK Says:

    This has gone on for too long. Defense needs changes. Fire smith at halftime and promote Duffner/Buckner/anybody. This is beyond forigivable.

  412. Matts17 Says:

    Same broken team from last year. Same problems never addressed. Draft picks and free agents contributing nothing.


    Fire Mike Smith’s ass now!!!

  414. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Mike Smith reads new slogan, Wreak Havoc, and says to himself… Challenge accepted

  415. Mike Johnson Says:

    LMAO! The Commentator just said, I don’t unstand why the Bears receivers are that WIDE OPEN. I do. Its called, Your Defense sucks to Holy Hell and beyonf Tampa Bay. Bucs are gonna losr this one. Hey..Maybe Our Dc Smitty will resign at Halftime? WE WISH!!!

  416. Pewterpower Says:

    Mike Smith should be fired at halftime…. body of work speaks for itself…. he keeps trying to get players to play his scheme instead of having his scheme adapt to the players he has

  417. BucsBandit Says:


  418. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    The problem is the Bucs Defense DID get on the plane

  419. Moreon Says:

    Hope owners are watching

  420. Buc1987 Says:

    Today I’ve officially become a Gerald McCoy HATER.

    I’ve fought it off for years….but no longer.

    Add me to the list!

  421. ElioT Says:



    • The NFL’s WORST rushing attack
    • The NFL’s WORST defense

    Career day for Trubisky.

    We’ve seen this sh*t a thousand times.

    I just don’t get it.

  422. mark2001 Says:

    How do you get worse than being the worst defense in the league? Watch…and learn

  423. Murph Says:

    Mike Smith’s defense is atrocious…year 1 same as year 3. Just pathetic.

  424. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis……..

  425. DBS Says:

    That should be Smith’s job. Good bye. Done.

  426. Jbeachbuc Says:


  427. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Defensive game plan: Break but don’t bend.
    Mike Smith has DD ( Defensive Dyslexia )

  428. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Bucs to hold open Defensive Cordinator try outs this Monday. Open to anyone who last name is not Smith.

  429. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    No wonder all the football pundits picked us to suck, they had the magic 8 ball that told them so!!!

  430. cmurda Says:

    A Train. I’m wondering the same thing. Thiis is Winston’s team anyway. Fitz sizzled out in 2 games right now and some of his decisions and missed throws have led to us being crushed right now. JW should be in for this drive right now. At worst, if we don’t score a TD before the half, JW has to be out there.

  431. Season Is Over Says:

    I hope Martin runs for 100 yards today as the back up so the Joes can relish in their victory of running him out of town for the wrong “Barber” and OHNO. Winning!

  432. John B Says:

    Game over/ defense coaches should all be fired at half time –

  433. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Garbage D.

  434. BucsBandit Says:


  435. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Weeks one and two were definitely flukes. This defense suvks so bad that it takes a flawless effort on offense. Flawless efforts on offense can’t be counted on to repeat. This is going to be another long season.

  436. GoBuxFla Says:

    Hopefully Mike Smith has a good realtor lined up to sell his home in the Tampa area. He won’t need it much longer.

  437. SteveK Says:

    This defense needs changing.

  438. Phillybuc Says:

    Is this our bye week?

  439. Buc1987 Says:


    Go play Batman and Robin with your kids….

  440. GhostofSchiano Says:

    2-2 here we come

  441. ATrain Says:

    JPP is pissed

    Because he wants to WIN

    Not just collect a million

  442. Chris in WA Says:

    I thought the 2011 Raheem Morris or 2014 Lovie Smith defenses would be the worst I will see in my lifetime. Mike Smith has proven me wrong.

  443. Sydney Says:

    “EA Says:
    September 30th, 2018 at 12:38 pm
    21-0 first quarter, bears won’t know what hit them.”


  444. Ndog Says:

    Too much money tied up in a useless DT in McCoy that is problem #1.

  445. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Bears are talking loudly and carrying a big mothereffin stick today! Beating the hell out of us

  446. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Love seeing jpp’s passion though

  447. mark2001 Says:

    Sorry guys…Fitz and a few receivers played out their minds for two games this year. Now we are back to normal…. looking like we won’t win another game his year.

  448. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    Mike Smith should be fired after today. Mitch Trubisky is having a career game. Today is the first time he’s ever thrown for more than 2 touchdowns in a game. And he did it against us in the 1st half.

    This is why I continue to vote little confidence in the Dirk poll. Because I still can’t get my head around retaining the worst DC in football just because he’s your buddy. It stinks of nepotism.

  449. Jerry Jones Says:

    Mike Smith needs to go all Vontea Davis right now.

  450. Mike Johnson Says:

    After all the elation and High Hopes. Ladies and Gentlemen, Without further adue..Let me welcome back some old friends with a brand new name, THE TAMPA BAY YUCKS or THE SOB’S (same ole Bucs) !! Fire this coaching staff.

  451. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    mccoy is a joke should have traded him for picks, draft derwin james, a diff rb andnot kappa who doesnt dress either plus the entire 2016 draft that doesnt play

  452. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis

    ….i mean cmon………ain’t nothing happening………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

  453. Rob Says:

    Fire Smith at halftime. Bucs have zero pass rush. Can’t cover their grandmother. Blown assignments. Team destroyed all momentum it may have had in first two weeks. I thought we would lose but Trubusky? What a effing mf joke

  454. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    No pressure up front besides JPP getting the sack

  455. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    The Bucs defense looks bad. No pressure to the QB aside from 1 sack. Trubisky has all day to throw and is an efficient 8-10 for 154 and 3 TDS.

  456. TampaBayAllDay Says:

    Now do people understand Mike Smith sucks

  457. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Who thinks McCoy’s sack celebration is cringe worthy? Look I’m an airplane, Mom!

  458. Brandon Says:

    Blame it on the D coordinator. We improved player wise.

  459. SteveK Says:


    I am about to watch the most recent Bucs drive. Not sure what game you’re watching? Fitz is doing fine. Evans made a bad drop, RoJo made a drop? I hope Jameis gets an equal judgement from you when he returns!

  460. ATrain Says:

    Fire the Coaches

    fing Koetter calling crap

  461. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    I’m done. Turning this crap off. Might as well fire Koetter and hire Fangio

  462. Season Is Over Says:

    Where are the smug optimists to tell us how awesome McCoy actually is if you read between the line and misconstrue a myriad of stats.

  463. unbelievable Says:

    Just Pathetic all around.

  464. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Bring in jamies!

  465. Gt40bear Says:

    Note to Glazers: You alays say you lsten to the fans, we the fans are YELLING, DEMANDING Mike Smith be fired at halftime! THIS, regardless of how beat up the secondary is, is embarrassing! And if Dirk pulls a Tony Dungy and rwfuses to fire his BFF, then fire him too! So over the constant and continuous CRAP that is put on the field by this team!

  466. cmurda Says:

    That last sack was not the O LIne. Fitz had all day but just locks onto 1 receiver. Thats enough of the BS. JW has to go in the next drive when it is 28-3

  467. ChanEpic Says:

    RoJo needs 15 more lbs of muscle if he wants to stick.

  468. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Mack is a mean arse mudda fugger prolly doesnt joke around like the ice cream man

  469. mark2001 Says:

    Get a grip guys. Smith and Koetter should have been fired last year. And at least Smith should have been replaced. Seems like they both can go down with the ship at the end of this year.

  470. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    now Jones catches a pass for -1. Guess he don’t like tho score!!!

  471. ElioT Says:

    McCoy needs to go either via trade or release in the offseason.

    He’s not a difference maker, he doesn’t make anyone around him better.

    No excuses.

    Not worth the cap hit.

  472. ATrain Says:

    Hey Joe how about a comparison with McCoy and Mack

  473. SteveK Says:

    Dense Dotson got his lunch ate! Damn hahahahaha. Mack is legit.

  474. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis

    ….i mean cmon………ain’t nothing


    GOOD GOD DO something

  475. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    America’s Effin QB will be in very soon

  476. SteveK Says:

    Demar* Dotson*

  477. Architek Says:

    Where are the Mike Smith stans????

  478. unbelievable Says:

    I knew Dotson was gonna get abused before they even snapped the ball that play.


  479. Patrick Says:

    “Put in Jameis”

    I guess y’all really want our team to suck even more

  480. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    When the bears get a penalty feels like a win…. Lol

  481. T REX Says:

    Winston doesn’t play defense

  482. SteveK Says:

    Put Jameis in! Let me see him lead us back, surely he will
    Put up better numbers than Fitz!?

  483. Craig Says:

    Winston Time!!!!!!!

  484. From76 Says:

    This defense just doesn’t work. One of the worst we’ve ever had.

  485. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    First down Bucs at the 25. Fitz pass is tipped at the line. 2nd down Fitz throws to RoJo for a loss of a yard. 3rd and long. Fitz can’t seem to find any rhythm. Fitz sacked and fumbles. Quizz recovers. 4th down. Good punt that will be helped out by a block in the back penalty. Bears take over up 21-3 showing no signs of slowing down. Potential blow out in the making.

  486. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  487. mark2001 Says:

    Woo Hoo…victorious punt,. And an A kicking administered by one of the two worst teams in the NFC North.

  488. ATrain Says:



  489. Spicoli Says:

    Fire Smitty!!!!!!

  490. Buc68 Says:

    Now would be a good time to knock the rust off for Jameis. Nothing too lose.

  491. TampaTown Says:

    Don’t need a new QB, need a need Defensive Coordinater

  492. Hurtbucsfan Says:

    This is hard to watch.

  493. unbelievable Says:

    It’s truly astounding to be a defensive coordinator for 3 years and manage to make your defense worse each year.

    The Mike Smith mantra

  494. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston is the only QB that can actually have a winning season with McCoy as captain of the defense. Maybe he is better than advertised.

  495. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    GAME OVER………….stick in Jameis

    ….i mean cmon………ain’t nothing


    GOOD GOD DO something

    cmon Koetter

  496. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    note to bears coach u dont throw screens against teams w no rush

  497. mark2001 Says:

    hummm…maybe, just maybe, teams have figured our Offense out…you think?

    Time for Koetter to get rid of his two game smile and start packing his luggage again.

  498. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  499. ATrain Says:


  500. James Walker Says:

    Losing on MNF teams only win 18% of games the following Sunday.

  501. Buc1987 Says:

    McCoy’s GREAT…..he just needs someone around him cause he gets doubled all the time….

    Said his fanboys for the LAST 10 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Top 100 players…..pro bowls…..blah blah blah!

    Screw YOU and McCoy!

  502. Tbbucs3 Says:

    But how can Dirk fire Mike Smith when their buddy’s and they coached together with the Falcons?

    Dirk should’ve made this change long ago. I’ve seen too much Bucs defense to relieve that this isn’t changing regardless of the players we have in.

    Fire Mike Smith. Don’t be soft Dirk.

  503. Bighck61 Says:

    You know your defense sucks when they make bad quarterback look good

  504. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    It’s cleary evident that the offense covered up a lot of issues this team has. Bucs look bad so far. Plenty of football left and things may turn around.

  505. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    grimes is done as a starting nfl corner

  506. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    I now understand the hate for Mc Coy. Mack had been Ruth the Bears for 4 games and had made huge impact and McCoy’s been with us for 9 years and hasn’t made anything

  507. cmurda Says:

    The penalties are laughable. Has there been any against CHI? I know we don’t get this type of home-cooking at Ray Jay. The blatant hold against GMC didn’t get called by the way. Literally right in front of the ref

  508. Bird Says:

    What ?

    That is every play in nfl

  509. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    McCoy’s fat ass can’t run.

  510. Rick Says:

    Man, the team is not good. The talent is there. This to me is clearly a coaching problem. For the first ever I will jump on the fire the coaches wagon. This team is terrible.

  511. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Is anyone actually pro Mike Smith? That is a stance I have yet to hear.

  512. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Hello my name is GMC and the whole NFL says I’m a top 10 DT but our fans never see it and I always disappear in all my games


  513. mark2001 Says:

    One more TD this half, and our Defense will be the “Chris Conte” laughing stock of the league. Back to normal, I guess.

  514. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    I love how yall delusional nuts can sit here and watch a below average QB carve up our secondary, throw a wide open mad 30 yards down the field on every damn play, and then come on here and say “Oh McCoy sucks!”

    WTF GAME ARE YOU LUNATICS WATCHING? Sure, he hasn’t done much of anything, but he is not even close to being the reason why our Defense is awful. About 70% of the blame goes to a stinking, foul, horrendous scheme in the secondary, and 20% goes to the fact that Jason Licht drafted 3 Defensive backs this year, and only one of them (Carlton Davis) is even half way decent in coverage. And 10% goes to the fact that father time is catching up with Brent Grimes.

    He has SUCKED for 2 weeks now. I knew it was a mistake to sign him back. I was hooting and hollering for us to go out and sign Trumaine Johnson with the money we would use on Grimes.

    Oh and the fact that Licht didn’t feel it necessary to go out and sign proven DB’s like Eric Reid and Bashaud Breeland even though our secondary depth is in shambles.

    So yeah, you guys are nuts if you think McCoy is the problem with this defense.

  515. Bucs14 Says:

    No playoffs for us this year. I predict the locker room implodes in 2-3 games. Cancer93, Smith, Koetter, Licht need to go. Glaziers, sell the team to owners who will actually care.

  516. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This is HORRIFIC

  517. Season Is Over Says:

    What kind of defense is that?

  518. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Grimes is still hurt

  519. ChanEpic Says:

    Those were some of the biggest BS flags I’ve ever seen

  520. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    WOW….. WOW…. this dude gonna set a Bears 100 year record today

  521. Bird Says:


  522. Buc believer Says:

    4TDs for the Bears in the first half coming up

  523. Sweeptheleg Says:


  524. SchwiftyBuc Says:


  525. Buc believer Says:

    Now it’s 4!!

  526. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Hello my name is GMC and the whole NFL says I’m a top 10 DT but our fans never see it and I always disappear in all my games

    SUCKS FOR FANS CAUSE I’M ROBBING THE GLAZERS of 100 million dollars…………………………………………………………………………………………………….

  527. donuts Says:

    This team will be lucky to win 5 games this year. Yes, we are that bad.

  528. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Omg what is up????

  529. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy is back!! Buc ball is back!! 16 million!!!

  530. ATrain Says:

    This is Mike Smiths BS zone crap from 20 years ago

    Fire him Now

    Walk in the Booth and send him home

  531. BuccoDav Says:

    I guess the entire secondary missed the plane to Chicago…

  532. Patrick Says:

    It’s now MITCHMAGIC

  533. The Real Drew Says:

    Wow. Real team is here now.

  534. mark2001 Says:

    Is this our practice squad in disguise?

  535. CanadianBucsfan Says:


  536. Back2bucball Says:

    Game over.. Plucking blow out.. Fire Mike Smith now!!!!

  537. Architek Says:

    LOL – Mike Smith deserves this LOL

  538. Dirty Bucs Says:

    This defense is horrendous. HORRENDOUS.

  539. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Lol I sware to God Mike Smith has to be fired tomorrow

  540. ChanEpic Says:

    Smith may not survive the bye week.

  541. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Make Monken Head Coach. Fire Koetter for allowing this crap to continue with Mike Smith. Fire Mike Smith because he is Mike Smith….. This is laughable.

  542. Wilder32 Says:

    Total embarrassment

  543. Season Is Over Says:

    Why don’t we give the linebackers that rarely make plays 15 million each also? Sound business decision there.

  544. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Bucs D going into records book today! Who hoo.

  545. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    i said 6-10 at beginning might be 3-13

  546. Bucnut2 Says:

    NDOG- not sure McCoy is busting coverages

  547. cmurda Says:

    Still over 9 minutes in the first half folks. If the Glazers give us more of the puke on defense without canning Mike Smith right now, don’t wonder why opposing teams take over Ray Jay. I’m not paying my hard earned money for this joke of a product on the field. Curry hasn’t done anything, GMC is non-existent per usual when it matters, our secondary is lost in space. Mike Smith has to be fired.

  548. 911bucs Says:

    This team doesn’t understand mike smiths defense.

  549. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Fire Nike Smith!!!! This turd QB looking like Tom Brady

  550. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    This defense is made out of paper. Just tearable

  551. Buc1987 Says:

    DavidBigBucsFan99…welcome to the club. I just became a McCoy hater today myself. This guy is a fraud.

  552. Matts17 Says:

    Guys just wide open everywhere. This is NOT a professional defense.

  553. Bird Says:

    So I think mike smith has to be done after this game

    No way Jason licht will accept this.

    He is making his draft picks look like busts. Gm s don’t like that.

  554. mark2001 Says:

    donuts.. win.5 games….you optimist.

  555. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    GMC gets through and pressures Trubisky, but all for nothing. 2 illegal contact penalties. First down Bears.. SMH. Trubisky drops back with all day to throw and completes a long pass to a wide open Burton. Bellamy is even more wide open on the next play for Trubisky’s 4th TD on the day. 28-3

  556. Colonel Angus Says:

    Damn, Bucs played us for fools those 1st two games. This team is going nowhere with this D. Was fun while it lasted, back up the truck!

  557. Broodlaw Says:

    HOLY CRAP the secondary and linebacker coverage is trash today, making Trubisky look like Joe Montana out there. So I wonder how long does Mike Smith have left after this farce of a defensive showing

  558. Mike Smith Says:

    Please fire me before before halftime

  559. ATrain Says:

    How Does Smith keep his job

    Or is the Lockeeroom Making a statement
    They want Jamies

  560. Anonymous Says:

    Good job coach Smith! Way to use that talent!

  561. buc15 Says:

    I would fire Mike Smith at halftime

  562. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:


  563. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I called it before the game


  564. Season Is Over Says:

    Back in the gutter with Winston coming back. Can you feel the fun slowing down?

  565. CanadianBucsfan Says:

    How is Mike Smith employed? Defensive Coordinator Buckner starting next week.

  566. garbs65 Says:

    How can our defense be this bad. Omg.

  567. jmarkbuc Says:

    Wow..just Wow

  568. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Praying Mike Smith retires at halftime

  569. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Lol. Wtf is this $#!t show? This is embarrassing.

  570. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I called it before the game


  571. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Can we have a defensive coordinators that does not run the same freakin defense every time?!?!?

  572. zwh99 Says:

    I’m sick of mike smith

  573. unbelievable Says:




    LVD, Grimes and Johnson can all go too. Might even throw McCoy in there.

  574. bigdaddio Says:

    After three years of record breaking futility on defense, Bucs should do one of two things.

    #1. Fire punter (4th and 92 from your own 3? go for it) and get good on on-side kicks.

    #2. Fire Mike Smith

  575. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    why not tell the dbs who are rookies and appear to have no clue, everyone play man and blitz every play

  576. Spicoli Says:

    Mike Smith needs to go… hoping the falcons lose as well

  577. mark2001 Says:

    Maybe Chicago will put in their third team guys second half, so we can have a competitive ball game.

  578. EA Says:

    I agree with rayjay this crap can not continue to happen, this is happening every season with Dirk, he can not prepare sh!t, I’m not sure why you guys have full confidence in this guy.

  579. bucs_1 Says:

    There is no way mike smith has a job after tomorrow theres no way if he does the glazers are already packed in for the season

  580. ElioT Says:

    Turbisky threw 2 TDs over the first three games.

    Against the Bucs’ Defense:
    4 TDs in less than 2 quarters


    We need like 3 or 4 dudes to retire at halftime. Starting with Mike Smith.

    Never seen such a weak defense, the guys look scared and confused.

  581. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Tampa bay tailgater we aren’t so lucky.

  582. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    The Bucs have been put out of the club!!!

  583. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    @Bird, The Blame is on Licht for picking those guys.

  584. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Not even worth the time to complain about this team. Game is over….may as well hand the team back to Jameis. ☠️

  585. BuccoDav Says:

    I’m sorry but the players have to take some blame in this. They are making all the wrong reads. Mike Smith may be crap but there is no way his scheme can be this bad.

  586. Mike Johnson Says:

    LMAO. Why Its the..SOB’s (same ole Bucs!) I could have swore I just witnessed our DC Smitty up in the pressbox with some Frito-lay Dip!!!!

  587. unbelievable Says:

    I will pitch into the go fund me to put up a billboard to fire mike smith.

    This is simply unacceptable.

  588. The Real Drew Says:

    Should be shot of where Mike Smith is supposed to be in the booth just showing an empty chair.

  589. jmarkbuc Says:

    Anybody see Vea’s one play?

  590. mark2001 Says:

    See you next week boys…this is too embarrassing. Someone must be fired after this. Little to nothing to lose, frankly.

  591. Defense Rules Says:

    This is the defense you get when all you can field is a bunch of rookies and scrubs. There’s not a DC in the world who could do anything with this group. Thanks Jason Licht … this one’s on you.

  592. Annoyed in CT Says:

    Trade Mccoy get some corner help for god sake get rid of Smith he’s garabag koetter should be gone Find a head coach who will build a good staff this is just lafable once again a massive step backward…Ownership is wasting talent what a ish show

  593. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    7 – 9 here we come

  594. Buc1987 Says:

    Fire Mike Smith today and trade McCoy tomorrow.

  595. Gt40bear Says:

    GAWD, this is SO awful, I don’t even want to watch ANY football for the rest of the day! The Bucs single-handedly will kill all interest in the NFL!

  596. Season Is Over Says:

    Conte sank the season.

  597. Arun Says:

    Yep, Smith should be gone ASAP!

  598. garbs65 Says:

    I’m disgusted yet I can’t stop watching.

  599. NewTampaChris Says:

    Raheem thinks this defense is terrible.

  600. Rob Says:

    Glazers have to step up and have the balks to fire that pathetic defensive coordinator. Look at the numbers this defence has given upon four games. Trubusky will throw for 8-10 touchdowns and shatter every record. If that is what it takes to fire that inept mefer, go Bears

  601. Zwak Says:

    It’s a Bucs life..

  602. cmurda Says:

    For Dirk to trot out Fitz without putting in JW means this whole damn staff and Licht should go. We need a spark now not in the 2nd half when its too late.

  603. THETRUTH Says:

    10 for 13 221 yards 4 TD omg

  604. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Hell fire Koetter And Smith tomorrow. Monken interim head coach and Buckner defensive coordinator

  605. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Conte had the right idea, get injured so he wouldn’t have to suffer through this sucky defense!!!

  606. King C Says:

    Defense is struggling obviously
    Somethings need to change in the bye week but honestly the problem is our personnel. DBs may be worst in the league

  607. EA Says:

    Another good move by Dirk is not telling who the starting QB would be, that turned out to be a genius decision on his part, muahahahahah

  608. Butch Says:

    Fire Smith he has no clue how to stop anyone

  609. mark2001 Says:

    Bucco…don”t forget the old saying “you can’t fire the entire club”. Seems rather appropriate now.

  610. Mike Johnson Says:

    And you guys thought Conte was Bad?
    Now you get to see a REAL DEFENSE huh?

  611. DBS Says:

    Time for the Glazers to step in and get rid of Smith.

  612. ATrain Says:

    Tell me Evans ain’t playing for his Boy

  613. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Mike Smith over complicates this defense and has shown it does not work. He has to be fired after this game. We have to much talent on defense to be this bad. Go Bucs!

  614. John B Says:

    So much for the team is behind Fitz blah blah blah – this team has Zero heart still and a lack of NFL level coaches – no one can cover, no one can rush the passer and all they do is argue and give pep talks that mean nothing

    Every year we get a couple of these games from Koetter Minn, Az come to mind in recent years – how quickly the season has appeared to slip away – can JW save the D????

  615. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Even Winston may not be able to dig us out of this hole. M t you have to bring in some spark.

  616. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Now we are just trying to run out the clock….LMAO!

  617. Buc1987 Says:

    Defense Rules…dude its MITCH TRUBISKY……just STOP!!!!!

  618. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    7 – 9 here we come………………..

  619. cmurda Says:

    You blow Dirk. How to you put Fitz in there to throw another uncatchable pass to a guy that has the size and is open.

  620. Season Is Over Says:

    If we only had a pass rusher.

  621. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I’d put Winston in after halftime

  622. Elita Vita Says:

    Bucs fans will not put up with Mike Smith much longer. He’s a wonderful guy but the Bucs fans have had a taste of victory due to the offense and will not put up with an inept defense which is obviously chronically disorganized.

  623. Phillybuc Says:

    Good news is our offense will be well rested after this game

  624. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ve told you repeatedly thru-out the week. This team is going nowheres until it gets a DEFENSE. Beleive me now?

  625. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I’m calling it now

    Jameis Winston is coming in in the second half

  626. ElioT Says:

    Another 3-out…

    Setting Bears franchise records all day.

  627. Anonymous Says:

    Go for 35 at half!!!

  628. I’m a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Had to rub it in cause I knew it was coming!!! Bucs wish they had the Tandyman now?? Smith and Koetter should both be fired!!! Maybe 5 & 12 with Jamies. See you in Atlanta for another arse whuppin

  629. Buc1987 Says:

    THIS is FitzMAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bwahahahahaha assclowns!

  630. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    the camera cuts to jameis. Leave him on the bench at this point and let Fitz be eaten up. Not much on first down and a bad throw by Fitz on second. 3rd and 7. Fitz throws high to howard. Fitz looks terrible. Punt team.

  631. BuccoDav Says:

    EA… Dirk didn’t tell you who the QB would be. You can bet the team knew the entire week. Do you think they are playing this poorly because you didn’t know who the QB would be?

  632. Annoyed in CT Says:

    Smith can’t coach how can u still have a job week after week being the worst D in the league Koetter needs to fire his friend

  633. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I wanna vomit

  634. Buc believer Says:


  635. ElioT Says:

    Jesus Chr*st…

  636. theodore Says:

    That five game winning streak is the worst thing that has happened to the Bucs. Mike Smith should have been fired two years ago. Mike Smith should have been fired one year ago. Fire Mike Smith already.

  637. BucsBandit Says:


  638. NewTampaChris Says:

    Goodbye, Smith. Goodbye, Fitz. Hello, Jameis.

  639. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Wow 35-3 coming up!!!

  640. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I’m calling it now

    Jameis Winston is coming in in the second half…..

  641. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    LOL at looking at bears stats before playing Tampa bay to playing Tampa bay

  642. Annoyed in CT Says:

    Flashbacks of Thursday night VS Atlanta

  643. BuccoDav Says:

    For all you who want Winston in the second half… Is he going to play in the secondary?

  644. cmurda Says:

    Play should have been challenged. Dirk needs to go too. We need a whole new regime. Dirk’s confidence poll will be negative after this beatdown against a team with a subpar offense.

  645. Chris in WA Says:

    Am I watching a college football game?

  646. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I just switched to Miami New England. The Bucs are not even worthy of watching.

  647. denjoe Says:

    Wow that’s what a real coaching staff can do.

  648. Spicoli Says:

    Might aa well put jaboo in the second half

  649. Jerry Says:

    Wow…this team is crashing back to Earth fast!

  650. THETRUTH Says:

    Hey Buc fams you miss conte yet.

    Careful what you wish for

  651. Buc1987 Says:

    Fitz has had CLEAN pockets assclowns!

    But keep holding on…..

  652. I’m a Tandyman Bucs Fan Says:

    Put Jamies in so he can get a taste of this

  653. Alaskabuc Says:

    Mike Smith better be fired before practice Monday

  654. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    glad licht passed on all pro derwin james

  655. Jerry Says:

    This team is crashing fast.

  656. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    eff me Gonna go cut the grass. This is bullspit

  657. Season Is Over Says:

    Hard to be a QB when you have an actual joke of a running game and joke of a defense. I mean the running game is not NFL level and the defense may as well not even be there. No QB can be perfect to win.

  658. Buc believer Says:

    So now Trebisky is Barry Sanders

  659. PLEX Says:

    Fire Mike Smith

  660. cmurda Says:

    Haha. Any bandwagon Bucs fans just jumped ship

  661. rick Says:


    Im with you on that.

  662. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Good job coach smith!!! Way to use that talent.

  663. mark2001 Says:

    Thank God we aren’t Joe, siting in Chicago, watching the team we cover being laughed at by the Chicago sporting establishment. About the best he can hope for is that one or more of them chokes on their Brat or Polish sausage.

  664. Dirty Bucs Says:

    I’m normally pretty optimistic…but this is just embarrassing.

    If you need a cure for your passing game, just wait for Tampa. Guaranteed you’ll come away with more confidence than you’ve ever had if you’re the other team’s QB.

  665. PLEX Says:

    Fire Mike smith now

  666. Bucamania Says:


  667. Buc1987 Says:

    BuccoDav….the defense….and Fitz sucks….it is possible.

  668. Ndog Says:

    Guys I know everyone is pissed but this is on the players. LVD looks lost, McCoy is useless, the entire secondary jumps everything they see in front of them. This one is not on coaching what do you do if no one does their job? It doesn’t matter what you call if everyone is running around lost.

  669. DBS Says:

    Time pissoff Bopeep. Put Jameis in.

  670. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Winston is there thinking ‘ Please don’t put me in. Please don’t put me in.’

    He should be working the sideline getting people fired up.

  671. ATrain Says:


    This is BS. No way a Pro Team plays this bad

    Smith sucks

    But it’s obvious this team play for Crab Boy

    Well he better win or the Home stadium will be emptybagain

  672. Mord Says:


    No thing.

    Not anything .. is working.

    Beaten in all phases.

    This is clearly the Bucs coaching staff’s loss in-progress

  673. theodore Says:

    As if reversing that catch would make difference.

  674. SchwiftyBuc Says:


  675. unbelievable Says:

    Take Grimes out of the game.

    His soft @ss won’t even make a tackle.

  676. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Rooting for Chicago to put up 70 points now. Whatever it takes to get Smith fired.

  677. Rayjay1122 Says:

    When the Bucs decide to fix this crap then I will support them again. I tried to come back but if this is what they are going to put on display, I am not watching it.

  678. Buc believer Says:

    Let’s just fly home now. It can’t be more embarrassing than having Mitch kick our head in

  679. mark2001 Says:

    Plenty of time for Chicago to rack up another couple scores.

  680. Phillybuc Says:


  681. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Jameis is coming in……………

  682. Matts17 Says:

    Candy from a baby

  683. cmurda Says:

    I can only laugh at this point.

  684. denjoe Says:

    No, Jason we didn’t need any more veteran DB’s

  685. Sharkiebucfan Says:

    This team is awful. Look for an implosion.

  686. mark2001 Says:

    Anyone think this team has quit on Koetter and Smith? Sure looks like it.

  687. Pit Says:

    Wow this is not acceptable. If Mike Smith doesn’t get fired Licht has to go too.

  688. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:


  689. ElioT Says:

    There are no limits to the depths that this team can sink to.

    Every year, at least one more horrific record setting beatdown.

    5 f**king TDs for this kid?

    I’m sick.

  690. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Screw this. I’m switching over to watch the Falcons/Bengals game.

    This is embarrassing.

  691. Bucamania Says:

    Grimes is absolute garbage, as is this whole D except for JPP.

  692. Tc Says:

    Back to Cinderella. They are who we thought they were. Embarrassing.

  693. Jeff Says:

    Bucs fans, there is hope. This was so, so bad this could actually get MIKE SMITH fired. #firemikesmith

  694. Season Is Over Says:

    This is the back to reality Minnesota game from last year. McCoy rode that beard for a few games but when his time came he folded like origami.

  695. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Seriously licht and personnel dept have no clue on talent evaluation or foresee the future, evans is ok safety, grimes is done, kwon is ave mlb

    matt nagy is creative

  696. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    The most embarrassing game in NFL history!!!

  697. Anonymous Says:

    ROUT! No heart left. pathetic.

  698. DBS Says:

    Who is in charge of the players and defense?

  699. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    The players are screwing up.

  700. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Clean house on the coaching staff and GM. The Jason Licht experiment ended when he took Vita Vea over Derwin James who looks like a sensation.

  701. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Mercy rule….

  702. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Hope all the bootleggers sold all of the Fitz shirts. 1st down Bears. 30 yard pass completion. Cohen turns the corner to the Bucs 32. 2nd and 2. Hand off to Cohen for another Bears 1st Down. Trubisky takes off on first down for a big gainer to the 1. 1st and goal. Vinny Curry gets through for a loss of 1. TouchDown on the next play. 35-3 Bears. 5 TD passes on the day for Trubisky.

  703. GhostofSchiano Says:

    This is embarrassing

  704. Matts17 Says:

    Licht is an ass clown who should’ve been canned last year along with the awful HC and DC. So predictable outcome today.

  705. lurker Says:

    whelp, now what?

  706. Pit Says:

    One of the worst offenses in the league……embarrassing……..

  707. University of Seffner Says:

    Mike Smith should see his walking papers on his desk as soon as he enters his office at One Buc Place. Simple as that.

  708. unbelievable Says:

    Anyone who has twitter needs to start tweeting the Bucs to fire mike smith.

    Embarrassing doesn’t even describe it.

    Anyone defending mike smith is blind.

  709. annoyed in ct Says:

    This is a joke our coaching staff is awful our Defense is an abomination What a joke Jamis is a joke our franchise is an absolute joke of the league No integrity no accountability no talent Bolts starting up Saturday i need the distraction at least Mr.Vink cares about winning

  710. Buc1987 Says:

    Just leave Fitz in….these fools haven’t seen enough of how bad he sucks.

    The defense TRULY sucks…..but let’s expose this QB to the fans that think he’s TRULY magic and better than Jameis.

    LEAVE FITZ IN. Let it ride. Watch him shine!

  711. ElioT Says:

    This team was not ready to play.

    They were fine going into the bye 2-2…

    No pride, no grit, no shame.

  712. denjoe Says:

    The WHOLE Staff is incompetent.

  713. Wausa Says:

    this game is the epitome of Coach Koetter is a poor head coach.

    After Mike Smith had the fifth worst defense in NFL history last year he still thinks he is a good defensive coordinator.

    Also, he handled the QB situation terribly

  714. Drew Says:

    Fitztragic Magic at its best and the Mike Smith greatest defense on earth show. Coaching changes coming next season.

    Koetter want to keep your job? Fire this fool!

  715. Season Is Over Says:

    I love how the Joes will pimp Barber getting running yards in garbage time this week. Lmao!! Watch.

  716. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    “IT’S DREW BREE’S HURR DURR” Can’t use that excuse this week Smith apologists.

  717. EA Says:

    Yeah BuccoDav exactly my point, he is focused on the wrong stuff.

  718. BUC IT Says:

    I don’t want to overreact but I just really feel like a whole lot of people need to be fired for putting that secondary on the field. Jason Licht , and mike smith 100% needs the axe. This is the worst buc defense Ive ever seen and thats crazy because up front and our LBs look strong on paper. I don’t care what happens this season…. I stand by that. This is literally a joke.

  719. Season Is Over Says:

    Everyone saw what Barber did when the team needed him.

  720. James Walker Says:

    The Bucs offense looks tired. Grimes has checked out. This is ALL on the players not the coaching.

  721. UK buc fan Says:

    I can’t believe how bad we look today, this D is just embarrassing. Where has our deep threats gone on offence, and do our secondary track any runs at all? Bears get 60 if they keep on at this pace

  722. Bighck61 Says:

    Final score 70-3

  723. Spicoli Says:

    even with 5 Td passes mitch trubisky still sucks. Bucs def makes any QB look great

  724. BucsBandit Says:

    This whole FITZ/WINSTON ‘controversy’ is bad for the team. Give Winston his job back and let’s move forward.

    Fire Mike Smith.

  725. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Idaho potato picking muthasucka You’ll be in the booth next year if your lucky

  726. Elita Vita Says:

    Mike Smith is a great guy however the Bucs fans will no longer tolerate a disorganized inept defense…especially after tasting early victories due to the offense. Should we wait till the end of the year? Who is on the shortlist for DC?

  727. Zwak Says:

    Mike Smith is done can’t fire him Monday but he is gone!

  728. BuccoDav Says:

    Great catch!

  729. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    And why are we running the ball? Throw in the towel coach! I think I’m done as a season ticket holder. Tired of the same BS.

  730. "Ice Man" Bobby Gilbert Says:

    Offense not staying on the field is definitely not helping the D. Our Dbacks look awful…all of them. The D line looked decent at the beginning but the entire defense is gassed. I don’t want to see Jameis in yet, but i think it’s going to happen just to get a spark.

  731. aj Says:

    Never thought I would say this, but bring back Ryan Smith. He was terrible, but better than this. He played pretty well in his last game. Maybe he can keep it up. No reason not to give him a chance.

  732. WalkdaPlank Says:


    You leave Fitz in so Jameis doesn’t get destroyed by this defense. It’s already a no-win situation why throw Jameis to the wolves just so he can get part of the “blame”?

  733. Rod Munch Says:

    Remember those d-bags who telling me that the Bucs 5-21 all-time record was meaningless, and you had morons saying the Bucs would win 27-0, LOL!

    Anywho Winston is back in week 6 with a 2-2 team, that’s better than what most would have expected. The defense is an abortion and the team should fire Mike Smith and trade for Bell since there is no way to fix this defense during the season, so you might as well try to outscore people.

  734. cmurda Says:

    I think that’s a catch but on a big play when there is doubt, thats what you do Dirk.

  735. VA BUC Says:

    lmmfao thats what all yall get to think this team was turning things around cause of two wins 😂😂😂😂 this team SUCKS AND THEY WILL FOR A LOOOOONNNNGGGGG TIME first two games were pure luck cmon yall honestly thought tampa had something going alllll you Fitz lovers 😂😂😂😂 betcha want jameis now lmmfao and listen Gerald Mccoy has been a flop 4 yrs ago man gtfoh dude never panned out to me hes a big ass HOE that defense will not get better at all again them days are long gone …Vita (bust) McCoy (soft ass BUM) kwon (Garbage as hell tackle missing mf ) Brent is to old never should have signed him back after that 1st contract ran out but the GM and coach to damn stupid to see it. And Mike Half Dike Smith should be fired at half-time …..you all arent true fans if you thought tampa was the real deal lmao the Steelers EXPOSED our offense as you can see was no need to expose the D everyone knows how to destroy us …how about every tampa fan their is strike and go against the team make them feel the pain of seriously every fan should turn their backs on this team HELL THEY DO IT TO US …THE ONLY 2 PEOPLE ON THIS TEAM WHO TRULY CAREZ ABOUT WINNING Mike Evans and America’s QB thats it well OJ Howard too but that is it everyone else is playing for checks i GAUREENTEE……F THE BUCS 4 LIFE IM OFFICIALLY DONE AND I WILL BE CHOOSING ANOTHER TEAM THIS IS A DISGRACE 😂😂😂✌ YOU ALL HAVE FUN WITH THIS HIGH SCHOOL TEAM

  736. EA Says:

    Bonzai the players are screwing it up because coaching staff isn’t doing its job

  737. Ferris Says:

    I am at the game in Chicago. This is a sh$tshow. Zero pass rush. Fire Mike Smith. Put in jameis as a passrusher. Put in anyone who can get to the quarterback. Also … Send help … Get me out of this stadium.

  738. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    i concur……………..Mike Smith is fired but at the end of the season

  739. UK buc fan Says:

    Catch DJ! Only decent playbof the half there

  740. mark2001 Says:

    As a wise sage of the NFL said…”you can’t fire the entire team. So you have to can the coaching staff. No choice….the team has spoken. And I’m sure the Glazers hear it loud a”nd clear.

  741. BucsFan90 Says:

    Bucs back to playing like a 2-14 team

  742. Bucs14 Says:

    Glazier Family. Either fire Koetter, Smith, Licht, and others. Or sell the team to an owner who will actually care. You and your family obviously do not care about the Bucs or the fan base, since you continue to put a mediocre product on the field.

  743. theodore Says:

    The Bills once came back from a score like this. Fitzgerald once played in Buffalo. Just sayin.

  744. mark2001 Says:

    The pressure is off…our team is buried, so now time to rack up some stats.

  745. BuccoDav Says:

    Does anyone know why the call it a “team timeout”? Is there another kind of timeout?

  746. VivianCherry Says:

    Defense still horrible even with new pieces.

  747. Wausa Says:

    Thank you a@BucsBandit.

    I 100% agree

  748. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    hahahaha stick carriers… ha where are those clowns

  749. Sweeptheleg Says:

    This is what happens when you start rookies in the secondary

    And Barber sucks too. All you Martin haters. Bunch of idiots. All of you.

  750. denjoe Says:

    How many years do they need to be competitive?

  751. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    where’s captain blowout at????? GMC???

    you in your batcave??????

  752. Season Is Over Says:

    Dirk “We were done by Halloween” Koetter.

  753. Biggun Says:

    Dont know what the frigging problem is with our defense but making Biscut look this good…. thank God DJax came to play!!!

  754. Timbucs2 Says:

    Can Mike Smith pull a Vontae and resign at halftime? I’m all for it.

  755. Bucamania Says:

    Fitz has happy feet since PGH

  756. "Ice Man" Bobby Gilbert Says:

    Game is NOT over folks. Our offense has big play ability and CAN score quickly. Let’s see what happens. Defense needed a break and they’re getting it now. Get. In. The. End. Zone.

  757. cmurda Says:

    Barber wide open and somehow Fitz blows it. This dude is hot garbage. Can’t believe JW didn’t come in halfway through the 2nd.

  758. Buc1987 Says:

    ElioT Says:

    “No pride, no grit, no shame.”

    Hmmmm sounds like McCoy to me!

  759. ChanEpic Says:

    Fitzmagic, LOLLolLOLlOL LOL!

  760. cmurda Says:

    He finally makes a throw and we got offensive PI. Fire this whole staff and lets rebuild. All we do is rebuild anyway

  761. Bird Says:

    That’s a penalty?

  762. ATrain Says:

    Even the NFL hates us

  763. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    winston aint playing he doesnt even have ear piece in listening to plays

  764. aj Says:

    Brate or Howard and a 2nd for Leveon Bell. It would kill the cap, though.

  765. Rod Munch Says:

    I swear every week it looks more and more like Dirk is calling the plays.

  766. ATrain Says:

    Refs suck

    That’s a bull call see that every play

  767. Biggun Says:

    Ticky tac call on brate!

  768. mark2001 Says:

    Getting dicey…Time for a FG to get back in this game…woo hoo.

  769. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half

  770. Annoyed in CT Says:

    Blow up this team Start fresh new GM new coach New QB

  771. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    No point in this playing Jameis. Warm up the bus. Throw in the towel. Run the ball and keep the clock moving. Fitz heaves up a prayer that Jackson catches. 42 yard pass play that is foolishly challenged by the Bears. Bucs showing a pulse. Ball on the 15. Delay handoff to Barber for a yard. Fitz with a terrible throw intended for Barber. Offensive pass interference called on Brate at the 1 yard line. Bucs may have more penalty yards than offensive yards. Time out Bucs. 2:23 to go.

  772. D-Rome Says:

    Anyone defending Mike Smith at this point is embarrassing themselves. Stop. Just stop.

    Bucs have the worst defense in the NFL and it isn’t close.

  773. Bucamania Says:

    Bye Fitz. Thanks for the first two games.

  774. Buc believer Says:

    Did Fitz shave???

  775. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Gotta get Jameis reps in 2nd half..
    it’s our seasons only hope.

  776. Buc1987 Says:

    The Bears will put their 2nd string in after the half….including Trubisky.


  777. unbelievable Says:

    Every other team gets away with that except us.

    This team is so disgusting to watch sometimes.

    At least it felt good for 2 weeks.

  778. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    87, you’re better than that homie. You should be smart enough to know that McCoy doesn’t play corner or safety.

  779. MadMax Says:

    JW3 going in to start the 3rd….

  780. canadianbucsfan Says:

    Put in Winston!

  781. BangkokBuc Says:

    And in comes Jameis…..

  782. ATrain Says:

    Evans gave up

    Did you SEE it

    He stops

  783. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..

  784. Bird Says:

    Well. There goes fitz run

    Jamies will be in after halftime.

  785. Geno711 Says:

    At the game. This is the worst away game ever for me

  786. Season Is Over Says:

    Time for Winston. Like that one guy used to say that got banned. He was dead right. McCoy sucks the life out of anyone who is in there.

  787. Biggun Says:

    Playing the refs also today!?!?!?

  788. cmurda Says:

    Is it possible to have JW now Dirk? As usual you suck at making decisions as a Head Coach. Please get JW some work by having him play the 2nd half. No QB in the league, even if Nate Peterman were a QB playing, could be worse than Fitz has.

  789. Matts17 Says:

    And that will officially end the Fitzpatrick era. Just wish I had an ounce of confidence in Winston.

  790. Buc1987 Says:

    Leave HIM in!

    Let it sink in HARD to these magic-fans.

  791. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..


  792. Tc Says:

    Hate to say it but fits is going back to garbage again.

  793. aj Says:

    It’s officially Jameis time now.

  794. mark2001 Says:

    Hate to break it to you guys, but this defense is the kind that will kill any QB that can’t put up 40 points. Do you hate Jameis?

  795. unbelievable Says:

    And people around here try to claim Fitzpatrick doesn’t stare down receivers.


    Locked onto Evans from the second that ball was snapped.

  796. ATrain Says:

    Jamies quiet on side line

    All these players play like crap

    Yea right Jamies pissed so is the team


  797. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..


  798. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Well the Bears got over 2 minutes to make it 49-3

  799. Spicoli Says:

    At least Mariota isnt a superstar

  800. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Fire Mike Smith!!!!!!!!!

  801. KEV-O Says:

    Smith should be done. No excuse for dbs not even knowing thei assignments blown coverages, etc. this is an average or below average offense we are playing. Gross.

  802. Rod Munch Says:

    Remember those dopes saying we need to dump Winston because Fitz is suddenly, in his 14th season, the QB of the future for the team? LOL!

  803. mark2001 Says:

    Chicago still has time to practice the two minute offense.

  804. Buc1987 Says:

    More Fitz more Fitz more Fitz!

  805. theodore Says:

    Vita Vea and Ronald Jones will turn this game around.

  806. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  807. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Bears have 351 yards right now

  808. Patrick Says:

    Winston is coming in. Our season is officially over

  809. Season Is Over Says:

    If the team only signed a pass rusher.

  810. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Patrick Says:
    September 30th, 2018 at 1:57 pm
    “Put in Jameis”

    I guess y’all really want our team to suck even more

    ^^^^^ yeah that guy is an idiot

  811. EA Says:

    I wouldn’t bring jameis in, this game.is over, our defensive coordinator sucks

  812. Bird Says:

    Well. Trubinski is now in Chicago hall of fame for that record

    5 Td passes in 1st half

  813. Bucnut2 Says:

    I would put winston in to practice for Atlanta



  815. denjoe Says:

    Doesn’t matter who plays QB this team is still garbage after how many years of these idiots?

  816. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    3rd and 19. INTERCEPTED!! Fitz playing like trash. Bears take over. Bears star Hicks flagged and kicked out of the game for pushing an official.

  817. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Did they activate Ryan Griffin today? I wouldn’t put Winston in this ass whooping

  818. Ndog Says:

    I hope everyone is enjoying the Fitz show.

  819. lurker Says:

    all these negative babies know so much….lol
    silly posters
    criticizing is one thing, but really these comments are silly

  820. ATrain Says:

    Where are our LB

  821. Wilder32 Says:

    So seriously, who takes over as the new Defensive coordinator tonight???

  822. Ryan T. Says:

    At this point, I’ve accepted that the Bucs are not going to win this game. So I’m now rooting for the loss to be SO BAD that the Glazers finally kick Mike Smith’s ass to the curb and bring in a COMPETENT defensive coordinator.

  823. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston has only been back for a few days, why throw him into this mess? Keep him out, let Fitz play the game out, no reason not to.

  824. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Why call time out? Should want this half to end as ethically as possible!

  825. mark2001 Says:

    The problem with these time outs is if Chicago gets a first down, they can bite us in the backside…and the way it is going, it probably will.

  826. BUCWAD Says:

    Now this is true Bucball. These guys look like they have never seen a football before, I thought the Defense sucked across the board but I had hopes the offense was better BUT NO!!!!! SAME OLE BUCS 4 and 12 this year maybe, no matter who gets fired.

  827. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Totally agree with you denjoe. Fire Licht. Cut Koetter. Drop the Mike.

  828. The Real Drew Says:

    Make a change to Jameis? Make a D coordinator change

  829. SteveK Says:

    Put Winston in now so he can shake the rust off now and have some tape for bye week.

    Throw Winston in there! No excuses fan boys!

  830. rick Says:

    at least we’ll get a good look at vea.

  831. Buc1987 Says:

    Please leave Fitz in.


  832. Season Is Over Says:

    This defense has stopped nothing all season. I’m serious. It is truly remarkable how ineffective Gerald McCoy and his 16 million are. I see absolutely no strength. You even have the pass rushing from the new guys but it is now nullified by the invisible corners.

  833. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..


  834. Jbeachbuc Says:

    “Goodbye cruel world “

  835. mark2001 Says:

    two minutes, 2:08 from the 22. Great time to run the two minute offense. Thanks coach for setting Chicago up for another drive.

  836. bigdaddio Says:

    Can Jameis play CB, RB, RT, S? Put him there.

  837. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..

    you guys will see

  838. ATrain Says:

    Where is the Team Guy Jamies???

    He F ed up and then comes back and pouts on side line

    McCoy and the rest of these idiots better start play for the fans
    Or the stadium will look like the den of depression

  839. Tut Says:


  840. GP Says:

    Technically speaking, this game is lost
    Put Winston in for the reps

  841. ATrain Says:

    Players turned on Fitz

    And on Coaches

  842. mark2001 Says:

    bigdaddio…well said…in fact, whom ever is QB the second half will be a feast for the Chicago D line.

  843. Buc1987 Says:

    Rod Munch….you’re dayum right.

    Leave Fitz in!

  844. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Miss the old days.
    As good as the O is, I just can’t stand watching this hot garbage defence. It makes me sick to my stomach. How could we let this happen ????

  845. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    @mark2001 same thing I’m thinking. Get the hell out of there

  846. webster Says:

    Hey guys we still have fitzmagic. He can show jameis how to win when the defense sucks. He can show jameis how to win all on his own because he is the great fitz and his 7 teams of experience has surely taugh him how to win without a defense, oline and running game. I still have hope. Lets go fitz!!!!! Show these jameis haters how a real qb wins on his own.

  847. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..

    i’m tellin yall

  848. Bucamania Says:

    3rd encroachment penalty. These guys…

  849. Bucs14 Says:

    Jameis will come in 2nd half against Bear backups. He will look good in garbage time like he always does. Many of you will claim Jameis as a savior, when in fact he is an average NFL qb at best. So when Jameis plays like he normally does, yall will start your whining about him. This organization has a tradition of mediocrity. The true problem is the Glaziers.

  850. T REX Says:


    Clean house.

  851. GP Says:

    And prepare your official complaint for the officiating

  852. theodore Says:

    You guys are all going to eat crow once Mike Smith makes his halftime adjustments.

  853. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    bucs draft a DT #1 who plays 20% of the game but chargers draft a safety that will be an all pro…. oh same gm drafted a kicker in round 2

  854. Zwak Says:

    Why would you put Jamies in this is a no win situation if anything put in Griffin!

  855. mark2001 Says:

    Looks like Chicago feels sorry for our pathetic team, and may run the clock out. They shoot horses, don’t they?

  856. EA Says:

    I agree with Atrain, what’s up with Winston on the sidelines es? This team is going south quick, coaches have lost control of this team.

  857. Kate Uber Says:

    I’m driving Jameis to stadium for second half start

  858. Cgmaster27 Says:

    A train just stop. You Jane is haters are pathetic, dudes not even playing and you fools bitch.

  859. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    2 minute warning. Bucs getting pummeled 35-3. Nothing magical about Fitz. He’s been bad. The Bucs defense has been predictably horrible with all of the injuries. Bucs with way too many penalties. Just an all around terrible half of football for Buc fans.

  860. Patrick Says:

    Fitzpatrick has put up great numbers that we haven’t seen from any Bucs QB before. And people want him out after a few bad games. Winston has underachieved the last 3 seasons. Sometimes I feel like there’s a whole new level of stupidity in some of this fan base and no one actually wants this team to win.

  861. Bucamania Says:

    You can’t stop Mitch Trubisky!!!

  862. Anonymous Says:


  863. Rod Munch Says:

    Thank God for RedZone, otherwise football would be over for the day.

    One nice thing is I completely figured the Bucs get blown out in this game, because they ALWAYS lose IN CHICAGO. The dopes that don’t understand history, that dismiss it, give me a break – history does matter.

    Again however the Bucs will be 2-2 going into bye, that’s better than what people thought, it gives Jameis something to work with.

  864. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    I think we need to play more off coverage. That will solve everything

  865. Kalind Says:

    Here’s another vote for MSmith getting the axe tonight. This is outrageous.

    If he’s still on the team tomorrow….I’m out until he’s gone.

  866. FairMinded Says:

    Firing Mike Smith isn’t going to save the season but it sure as hell would feel good

  867. Destinjohnny Says:

    There is my boy Evans

  868. Buc1987 Says:

    Pour it on webster….and not just today….for the next 2 weeks!

  869. mark2001 Says:

    Theodore…you mean our D is going to switch jersey’s with the Bears at halftime?

  870. GP Says:

    And send Buck up to the press box to toss Smith out!

  871. Larry woods Says:

    If the bucs don’t fire mike smith smh

  872. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Can we fire Mike Smith at halftime. Let Buckner call plays on D, it can’t be any worse. And bring in Winston so he can get some game reps.

  873. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    I don’t want Winston going in a game like this. Your beat, he’s gonna try like hell if he comes in to make a miracle comeback in the windy $hitty city and I’d rather Fitz get hurt then America’s QB

    Eat crow???? They already scored 35 points!

  875. Buc believer Says:

    I’m rooting for Chicago to have 6 TDS in the first half!

  876. MadMax Says:

    JW3 needs his snaps….no way we’re coming back. just do some simple calls ans dont expect much.

  877. Season Is Over Says:

    Good teams don’t have games like this. This is the foreshadowing of another terrible season. Just like Minnesota last year. It is unfortunate having to come to grips with this so early in the season.

  878. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    CAll another timeout dirk and give them more time stupid A$$

  879. TonyC Says:

    Who can follow this loser team?

  880. mark2001 Says:

    I think Chicago will try to get the three points they gave us back before halftime. Nice timeouts, Dirk.

  881. ERIC Says:

    Where’s the Realist and his bs about fix trenches fix roster…. fix our scheme and d-cord… Realist find some other garbage to spew

  882. NJBucsFan Says:

    Fire Mike Smith at halftime

  883. ATrain Says:

    Really Cg

    Are you watching the game

    Put Jamies in

    Oh then we will hear too far behind

    You Lovers kill me

    This team quit on Fitz

  884. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is there a rule that we have to run the ball on 1st down in the red zone?

    Also….is there a rule that refs have to call OPI on our TEs…..

  885. Hurtbucsfan Says:

    this is hard to watch..

  886. Buc1987 Says:

    Patrick ….14 SEASONS!

    You’re the stupid one….we’ve got 14 seasons to judge Fitz under.

    THIS is who he is.

    Jameis Winston IS the starting QB for the Bucs…..that’s a fact.

    Fitz was brought in to be a back up and it’s starting to show.

  887. ERIC Says:

    We need to fix scheme and get a real d-coord

  888. Nick Says:

    I have seen so many terrible defenses in my life. This is the worst, no doubt. It’s embarrassing Mike Smith is still a defensive coordinator with how many no names QB he’s put in the hall of fame.

  889. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    holy vita vea wow…. im guessinf yhe great new DL coach isnt teaching that

  890. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Fire Smith tonight
    #drop the Mike

  891. Season Is Over Says:

    The running game and Mike Smith are the absolute downfalls of this team. This team is nearly unwatchable until they completely overhaul these two parts of the game.

  892. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    @bucbeliever yeah why not, he’ll then do a onsides kick and go for 7 effin td’s

  893. mark2001 Says:

    Don’t worry guys…I don’t expect Chicago to put 70 on us.

  894. Destinjohnny Says:

    Let’s get jameis some

  895. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I can’t even score that high before a half in MADDEN?????????????????

  896. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Should we put our actual qb in? Or just let fitz take this L?

  897. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    It’s JPP against the bears today.

  898. denjoe Says:

    Even if we drafted Derwin James, Koetter would probably make have inactive.

  899. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    The Bears continue to move the ball after Tarik takes off for another chunk play. Bears ball in FG range. 3rd and 7 with less than a minute and the Bears in no hurry. Bears looking like settling for a FG. Cohen tripped up on 3rd. 4th down Bears with a long FG try the end the half coming up.

  900. Nick Says:

    This isn’t about QBs to me. Our defense is breaking all the records in the worst way.

  901. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    haha he set a bears record

  902. Brad Says:

    If he plays Winston now, then he’s admitting he was able to play the whole time and that you started a Journeyman over your “franchise”. That’s a fireball offense!!! If Winston plays Koetter should be fired with Smith after the game!!

    Winston should play and should’ve started. This front office/ coaching staff has no balls and no control of the locker room. If the only argument is that the players wanted Fitz, then the coach has no control of the room and Koetter is not in charge.

    Joe can you do 2 thing please? Put pressure on Bucs about Smith and run a confidence poll for Koetter. Maybe just have a poll for Smith so team Glazier can see the 0% support.

  903. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Jameis is coming in in the second half…..

    here comes jameis

  904. denjoe Says:


  905. Bucamania Says:

    Best offensive half in THE HISTORY of the Bears!!!!!!

  906. lambchop Says:

    We need an in-sesaon firing of Mike Smith.

  907. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    50 yard FG on the way and it is good! 38-3 Bears at the half.

  908. Season Is Over Says:

    Every week Mike Smith lets team break some kind of record or his own defense breaks some kind of record. It is a laughable defense and bringing the whole city down with it. Mike Smith is ruining a historic offense.

  909. jmarkbuc Says:

    @A Train

    Players turned on Fitz

    And on Coaches

    If that’s true, it only took 4 days of JW being back in the building for the entire attitude to shift…..

    To This.

  910. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    You all seen ME13 yelling at Fitz on the sidelines

  911. Anonymous Says:

    1987, go suck an egg.

  912. Brad Says:

    Sorry, fireable

  913. Buc1987 Says:

    Leave Fitz in the rest of the SEASON…..there’s still a few idiots left that it hasn’t sunk in yet.

    Let Fitz ride the whole season…..he’s transformed into a football God now…so leave him in there.

  914. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    “The most impressive offensive first half in the entire history of the Chicago bears “ LOL

  915. aj Says:

    I don’t know how you find someone who finally changes the culture. It makes Dungy look even better in retrospect.

  916. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I can’t even score that high before a half in MADDEN?????????????????










  917. denjoe Says:

    I wish we could kick a fifty yard FG!

  918. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    @Season is over. The Bucs scored 3 points. That’s pretty historic only because it happened. The best thing is the first half is history.

  919. Rod Munch Says:

    I think Winston plays in this game, but I don’t like it. No reason to bring him back in, rusty, with only a few practices, against this defense. Let Fitz take the pounding, or heck, play Griffin if you want, but I’d hold Winston out since I don’t see anything good coming out of it. Now, one exception, that would be if the Bears treat this like the preseason game it is and they pull starters. I just don’t want Winston coming in and throwing an INT because he hasn’t played in a month and is going against the best D in football, and then dealing with the coaching staff wavering. No, just keep him out, let Fitz play the full game, pat him on the back, say thanks for the 2 wins, then hand over the keys to Jameis.

    But of course since it’s Dirk he’ll do whatever the worst option is, so he’ll probably play Winston and something bad will happen.

  920. theodore Says:

    Fitzmagic time!

  921. THETRUTH Says:

    Any key can have the Buc pill , when your doing bad come play the Bucs and all will be good and most of time better or record breaking

  922. Bucsfan77 Says:

    Breaking news. .. Mike smith retirees from embarrassment at half time. . OK maybe not news but wishful thinking.

  923. Matts17 Says:

    Here’s hoping the bears score 70. Embarrass this franchise maybe the shame will force some changes.

  924. unbelievable Says:




  925. GP Says:

    This is em-bear-assing

  926. mark2001 Says:

    Bucamania….even more impressive than that…might be the worst Defensive half in the history of the Bucs.

  927. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    All the idiots screaming for Jameis to be traded don’t look to smart anymore…

  928. Ryan T. Says:

    If the Glazers believe in even the APPEARANCE of accountability in their football organization, I will be reading an article on JoeBucsFan tomorrow about Mike Smith’s termination.

  929. GhostofSchiano Says:

    The team, minus jpp, has quit this game. Hopefully Mike Smith just quits period

  930. webster Says:

    No patrick. The stupidity is people believing fitz is anything but what he has shown at his previous 7 teams. But then again you think winston sucks so i understand your disbelief. I guess

  931. Buc68 Says:

    I think we run the hurry up in the second half with Fitz. He can keep throwing deep to DJax. DJax can continue to support Fitzmagic publicly. Everything is wonderful. Also with some luck Chicago will bring the second team in and Fitz can keep his 400 yard streak alive.

  932. ATrain Says:


    That’s right Jamies is back and they want him in

    Evans is his boy and a leader on the team

    LOOK at his play.

    I saw Better Defensive play on Friday night at at HS game

  933. jmarkbuc Says:

    I’m a Bucs Fan, so whichever QBplays, I’m gonna pull for.

    Having said that I’m not the biggest JW fan, but at this point the only thing that could even pique my interest to watch the second half of this sh!t show is to put Jameis in…What the Hell..why not.

  934. annoyed in ct Says:

    We should call 1Buc and leave VM after VM to the glazers to get someone who knows what there doing

  935. unbelievable Says:

    How many times has this team been down by over 4 touchdowns in the first half under Mike Smith?

    Simply unacceptable



  936. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    The Bucs are down 38-3. Blame Jameis.

  937. Not there yet Says:

    How about that Dirk Koetter confidence poll from the first two weeks. All those proclamations about this team based on two weeks and here you are with the put Winston in talk and the fire coach speeches. Always had little confidence in dirk because the joes don’t have the sense to know dirks job is tied to mike smith and dirk can’t do anything but defense because he doesn’t know what to do either.

    The big three should all be fired. Dirk and smith and since Licht seems to not realize his power to make them make changes he should go too

  938. Biggun Says:

    At this point being in Winston… cant hurt us…. as for defense maybe we can borrow a few of the bears second string!

  939. Season Is Over Says:

    Even if we come back to get close or win we always lose the real game. The game before prevent defense. This team would go nowhere if they got anywhere. No heart on defense.

  940. Dapostman Says:

    Another Arizona game. Total unprepared to play on the road. Nothing to see here.

    Move along………………………

  941. The Real Drew Says:

    Can this game be over? I’m done with it.

  942. lurker Says:

    jameis was the saviour, then he kept molesting and assaulting women

  943. mark2001 Says:

    Munch…agree 100%. Jameis would be nothing but a big target for that Bears pass rush, trying to pad their stats. They have no need to be concerned about the run. It makes no sense to play Jameis today. Let Fitz finish what he started. This may be the last game he ever starts, so let hims go down with this. He, the running game, and the D have earned it.

  944. Buc1987 Says:

    Joe and few of us tried to tell fans on here…this is who Fitzpatrick is. Looks like Brady one week and then the bottom falls out.

    He had 3 great games though……leave him in.

  945. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    Lol Mike Smith doesn’t make half time adjustments. He doesn’t make adjustments during the game. He doesn’t adjust his scheme at all. Every week its the same looks over, and over, and over, and over again.

    It’s always a heaping helping of Quarters, off-zone coverage. AND IT NEVER WORKS! Always on nearly every play there’s multiple targets WIDE open down field. We make almost every QB we play against look like a vintage Dan Marino.

    Literally the only time this defense is any good is when it gets turnovers. Turnovers are inherently luck based. Mike Smith is literally a white Lovie. FIRE HIM!

  946. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    here comes Jaboo

  947. Season Is Over Says:

    This is the third year in a system. Both sides of the ball. This team is getting their asses kicked on both sides of the ball. We don’t even have a real RB on this team.

  948. denjoe Says:

    Were playing LICHT’S out!!!!!!!!

  949. mark2001 Says:

    Why not put Jameis in? He could be ripped to shreds by this bears pass rush that has no regard for the run the rest of the game. One injured Jameis means Fitz the rest of the year. Is that why you “Jameis America’s QB” guys really want?

  950. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I only know one thing for sure. These blogs are way more entertaining than the Bucs game is.

  951. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    The Jameis Haters are digging deep. It’s Jameis fault the secondary is injured and Fitz can’t hit the broad side of a barn. It’s Jameis fault that Jason Licht can’t scout talent. It’s Jameis fault Dirk Koetter is an inexperienced head coach who isn’t very good. It’s Jameis fault Chicago just played a terrific half of football. Man. Serious! Seriously! Lol

  952. JimmyJack Says:

    This team looks like they don’t even practice. I’m officially done with this Mike Smith defense I am so ashamed to be a Bucs Fan right now

  953. Afrika The Rapper Says:

    I’m done with Mike Smith. If Coach wants to hitch his wagon to his friend in the name of loyalty, so be it !!!! He has got to go.

  954. Season Is Over Says:

    I don’t even know how teams find records to break against this defense.

  955. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    7 – 9 record…………………here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  956. ATrain Says:

    Bucs 1987

    Really is Fitz playing defense

    I borrowed this from The Crab Crew

  957. James Walker Says:

    All this “Fire them” is crazy talk. Chicago is obviously the best team the Bucs have faced this year, and we have them away on a short week. Their QB was 70% passer coming into the game.

    Lets just hope the rest of our division lose and move on. 2-2 on the first quarter of the season with the backup QB is not bad.

  958. Season Is Over Says:

    Mike Smith makes Lovie Smith seem tolerable.

  959. Mord Says:

    This game is a prime example of one team preparing its players and strategies for the opponent, and another just trying to “do what they do”, which plays perfectly to the other team’s preparations and strategies.

    Shame we’re essentially confirming their scout team

  960. Buc1987 Says:

    I don’t want fans like Patrick to have their season ruined by Jameis playing this season……leave Fitz in.

    Let the magic continue. smfh

    Doesn’t matter anyways. Mike Smith has to go. I don’t care what he’s working with out there. he doesn’t adjust and he’s WORSE than Lovie.

    Yes Realist I said WORSE than Lovie.

  961. mark2001 Says:

    Chicago’s offense has never looked “terrific” this year… until today. You don’t think our D had as much to do with it as their Offense?

  962. jb Says:


  963. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    here comes jaboo……………………..

  964. unbelievable Says:



  965. Rod Munch Says:

    Everything changed when Dirk punted the ball from Pitts 36 in the first half against the Steelers. I know people think that is ridiculous, but up until that point the team had been aggressive and unpredictable, then Dirk took back control because he’s afraid. The Bucs had success, were 2-0, and Dirk got scared of losing that success and the team got conservative. At the end of the game against the Steelers you have Dirk take the ball out of Fitz’s hands to give to the defense – that told you everything about how much confidence Dirk had in Fitz, and it also told you how scared and cowardly Dirk was going to coach once he had something to lose. When there was nothing to lose, when people expected nothing from this team, they played wide open and were aggressive, then Dirk turned into the cowardly coach he’s been his entire career, where he does exactly what’s in the coaches handbook and never goes against it. People defended him, but realize, you defended the collapse of the team, because what brought success, and what brought excitement, was NOT being predictable.

  966. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    For the record. Do Not! DO NOT PUT JAMEIS IN. This game is over… Let Fitz take this beating.

  967. Buc68 Says:

    Healthy Jameis looked pretty good throwing the football last season against the Bears….. Just a thought.

  968. ATrain Says:


    NO it’s Not Jamies Fault

    It’s his Fault we had to play our backup QB

    It his fault He stands on the sideline pouting

    Put him in

    But He Better Win No excuses

  969. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I think this whole QB situation has really screwed with the Bucs mentally.

  970. Sweeptheleg Says:

    This team is a joke.

  971. mark2001 Says:

    BS Walker…. the Bears have some nice pieces and a great D line. But they aren’t “the best team we have played this year”…in fact, they are only the third or forth best team in their division.

  972. Rod Munch Says:

    Think of this… Mitch has looked terrible against everyone else, now looks like an All-Pro against the Bucs…

    Well Nick Foles looked terrible against the Bucs.

    How bad is Nick Foles? Wow!

  973. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    TOLD YA!!

  974. TBTeddy Says:

    The offense has done absolutely nothing to this point and we’ve always known the defense sucked. Yea we’re down to safeties but the strategy was clearly to outpace the bears on offense but Fitz and company have failed at that. I truly don’t understand why people are still defending Fitz when we only have 3 points? I thought you stick with the hot hand but he hasn’t been hot in 2 weeks.

  975. jb Says:

    TheBucsAnthem Says:
    September 30th, 2018 at 2:47 pm
    7 – 9 record…………………here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If Mike Smith is still here at the end of the season, I imagine we’ll be looking at a 2-14 season!

  976. ATrain Says:



  977. Buc1987 Says:

    ATrain…..the defense does not excuse the CLEAN pockets Fitz has had to throw those garbage passes……

    Do I blame him for the score? Hell no, but he DOES suck!

  978. TonyC Says:

    Chicago is an average team at best. This staff , including our horrific GM, are too old and out of touch.

  979. Season Is Over Says:

    Garbage time stats!!

  980. ArmyBucsFan Says:

    Mike smith needs to be fired after this game. His defense looks unprepared and continue to play 10 yards off of their man. Wtf. Wide open receivers all day long. We are making the bears look like if Tom Brady, Montana, Brett Farve, and manning had a baby.

  981. ATrain Says:

    Show us Jamies

    Let’s see the Defense Play now

    I bet they step up

  982. BucsBandit Says:


  983. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Nice take Rod Munch.

  984. andrew winnegar Says:

    worst defense i have seen in 38 years of watching football.

  985. unbelievable Says:

    It’s a huge mistake putting Jameis in right now

    He’s gonna get killed.

  986. JimmyJack Says:

    Well at least Jameis Winston is in. I guess there’s a reason to keep watching

  987. NJBucsFan Says:

    Coach just lost this team.

  988. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Here is a silver lining…

    No PI calls….(we aren’t close enough to interfere)

  989. Rob Says:

    Figured we’d lose this one, was prepared for it. But to be THIS uncompetitive. Drops and misfires, and a defensive rout. sad. Now we get Famous Jameis the garbage time man.

  990. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Wow. They are inexplicably putting Jameis in. I hope he makes it through this game in one piece.

  991. ATrain Says:


    Fitz can’t make Evans catch

  992. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    TOLD YA!!…..

  993. Rod Munch Says:

    Buc68 – Home and away are huge differences, also the Bears defense got dramatically better last year as the season went along. This isn’t the Bears team the Bucs faced last year, in addition to that this is on the road. Going on the road to certain places matters, a lot, and Tampa has never played well in Chicago.

    Leave Winston out as he has nothing to gain.

  994. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Bears QB is throwing to wide open guys. That doesn’t take talent, just a bad D. This d line is getting no pressure either.

    They used Cohen so we had to chase him around all first half and wear us down. Now Howard is going to batter our tired defense.

    Come on Jameis!! Bring some life!!!

  995. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    And this ladies and gentleman officially marks the end of Fitzmagic.

  996. Knoxville Buc Says:

    Who is call the defensive plays or did the entire defense not show up for the plane and stay in Tampa!

  997. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Winston 2-2 and the Bucs going for it on 4th and 1!! This should be a fun half!

  998. ATrain Says:

    Koetter knew the team quit on him

    He said he was down talking to Team he put Jamies in

    Evan caught that one

  999. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Already looking better.

  1000. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Beautiful conversion by Jameis by way of Humphries.

  1003. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    this is what I said to do, short quick passes

  1004. cmurda Says:

    Thats not on JW. It’s more humiliation of not containing Mack.

  1005. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis starting off 4 for 4. Let’s go Jaboo, Let’s go!!

  1006. Sweeptheleg Says:

    There’s the savior lmao.

    Come let’s hear the excuses lmao.

    Absolutely perfect.


  1007. Jim Says:

    Something has to be done.

  1008. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh well, lets hope Winston looks good.

  1009. Season Is Over Says:

    The season’s success was fun while it lasted. I had forgotten what it was like.

  1010. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  1011. ATrain Says:

    That’s what a 100 million will get you Haha

    Did y’all hear that

    Except the Bucs

  1012. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Who blew pass protection there?

  1013. lurker Says:

    we need a quartetrback!

  1014. BucThis Says:


  1015. ElioT Says:

    Can’t get more embarrassing.

    Jameis’ first long ball attempt, deflected at the line…

    Why us?

  1016. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  1017. cmurda Says:

    Are you kidding sweep the leg? You should be asking why Mack was not doubled.

  1018. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis 5 for 5! Tipped ball by Mack. Picked off.

  1019. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    The team quit on mike smith fire him!!!!!!

  1020. passthebuc Says:




  1021. Pruritus Ani Says:


  1022. Rod Munch Says:

    Ugh, why bring in Winston here, it’s just dumb, so of course it’s what Dirk does, because he’s a moron.

  1023. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Wow haters got what they wanted!

  1024. MadMax Says:

    Back to buc ball….the kind im familiar with…

  1025. Buc1987 Says:

    TBTeddy Says:

    “The offense has done absolutely nothing to this point and we’ve always known the defense sucked. Yea we’re down to safeties but the strategy was clearly to outpace the bears on offense but Fitz and company have failed at that. I truly don’t understand why people are still defending Fitz when we only have 3 points? I thought you stick with the hot hand but he hasn’t been hot in 2 weeks.”

    needs to be repeated

  1026. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis has a tipped ball pick it’s his fault. Fitz throws 3 picks it’s not his fault.

  1027. SteveK Says:

    Welcome back Jameis! Not your fault,but if you were Fitz ppl would be saying that you’re “rattled” and at fault.

  1028. NJBucsFan Says:

    There’s the Winston we know

  1029. ATrain Says:


    Dirk had too he knew the team quit

  1030. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Jon Gruden got 100 million he’ll be okay

  1031. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Koetter is an idiot, and fire Mike Smith before the start of the 4th quarter.

  1032. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Hey GRUDEN……………you still think it wasn’t a mistake letting mack go??????????

  1033. BucsFan90 Says:

    Horrendous O-line

  1034. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Funny thing…his hand was hit. It happens. Fitz still looked worse.

  1035. Rick Says:

    Hey hey hey! Winston threw for about 20 yards. Super Bowl bound!!

  1036. James Walker Says:

    Take the beating like a man.

  1037. SteveK Says:

    Rod munch,

    You need to quit munching wintson’s Jock and let him play!

    No excuses for Jameis/Fitz!

  1038. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Lmao you idiots blames every pick of Fitz on Fitz. I swear the excuses you morons make get better every week.

    How about both our QB’s suck.

    Winston isn’t much better. Only you idiots on here believe Winston is above average.

    You’re all stupid idiots.

  1039. Zwak Says:

    This was a bad idea!

    Should have been an easy pick for Smith. Instead…

  1043. Rod Munch Says:

    The Winston haters should all cut their wrists in protest.

    You won’t be missed.

  1044. Season Is Over Says:


  1045. denjoe Says:

    Doesn’t matter who plays QB! we have to pass on every down.

  1046. ElioT Says:

    Cohen is eating up Kwon and Lavonte.

  1047. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  1048. cmurda Says:

    Coaching staff. Bye bye.

  1049. unbelievable Says:

    That’s another HORSESHOE!T call from the refs!

  1050. ElioT Says:

    And Glanton-Taylor.

  1051. SteveK Says:

    Why does Rod Munch continue to give Winston a pass? Let him play and get rust knocked off for a meaningful game next week. We need to not baby him bc we need to win. If we have a poop record we will clean house.

  1052. ATrain Says:




  1053. NJBucsFan Says:

    Because Rod knows how Winston tastes

  1054. Season Is Over Says:

    Gerald McCoy is the biggest waste of cap space in the history of the NFL.

  1055. Rob Says:

    Way to stay classy Rod.

  1056. NPR Sageboy Says:

    America’s Turnover Machine is alive and well! Order restored to universe

  1057. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Sweep the leg: I usually ignore posts like yours, but If you can’t tell that Jameis is an elite prospect you don’t know much about football.

  1058. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    maybe one of the most embarrassing games ever for a bucs fan

  1059. SteveK Says:

    Rod Munch,

    Keep your posts about football, and stop being a sniveling baby. Winston is in the game, let’s see what he can do!

    So far, same as Fitz.

  1060. Buc68 Says:

    Howard out with a knee that’s not good

  1061. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    This is embarrassing.

  1062. MadMax Says:

    OJ Howard out with a knee injury.

  1063. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    You speak bad, you get bad.

    I’m out. Don’t think I’ll do the open thread anymore. You people suck the joy out of being a fan. You should be ashamed.


  1064. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey SteveK, do me a favor and eat a big ebola pekka, not that that is anything new to you. LOL!

  1065. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Both our QB ‘s suck. Ran Martin out of town and his replacement is even worse.

    Online is terrible too. And defense doesn’t exist

  1066. jmarkbuc Says:

    Did you hear the sideline reporter right before the second half?

    When asked what DK said to his players?

    “I didn’t say anything, I have nothing to say to them”

    This guy is not an NFL coach

  1067. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    ha ha ha ha ha ha

    they couldn’t even stop the same play called again

  1068. TBTeddy Says:

    Clearly, Jameis’s arm was hit and we probably shouldn’t have called for a deep pass right there anyway.

  1069. Bucamania Says:

    6 TD passes for The Truth!!! unreal.

  1070. cmurda Says:

    LOL. Mike Smith can’t survive this if our owners had any gonads at all. This is about the 50th time I’ve typed this.

  1071. EA Says:

    I don’t know how you don’t fire Mike Smith after this game

  1072. Jim Says:

    The house cleaners have arrived.

  1073. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Same old Bucs. So much for a playoff run if you can’t stop the great Mitch Trubisky.

  1074. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    6 to passes for turd QB fire mike smith!!!!!

  1075. ElioT Says:

    It’s Madden on rookie mode with the user sliders turned all the way up.

    Every year, another historic beatdown… or two… sometimes three.

    It’s a Bucs Life!

  1076. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    love the bucs but i have been saying for 2 years licht is horrible and his cute drafts and cheap FA moves build an embarassment that is out there today and this team is very far from being a playoff team, crappy OL/DL, secondary, no RB, ave LBs, good WR group 6-10

  1077. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    What Jameis does in this half is practice. This is a live practice.. it just happens to be against the best defense in the NFL… just watch and enjoy and look for signs of life. Let’s see if we can get anything positive out of this game. It’s not going to happen on defense, so let’s get Jameis up to game speed so he can settle in as the week 6 starter and reignite the Bucs offense.

  1078. Destinjohnny Says:

    On a good not vea is a animal

  1079. bucs_1 Says:

    no way mike smith survives tonight or tomorrow how many times have teams hit 30 points since he has been DC

  1080. Sweeptheleg Says:

    @jameis almighty

    An elite prospect?

    Hahahahahahahhaa yea year 4 and still a “prospect”

    Thanks for proving my point you dumb as s FSU co** sucker

  1081. TheBucsAnthem Says:







































  1082. BucsBandit Says:

    Rod Munch is a huge LOSER. Emotionally overreacts like a woman. He’s still crying about a punt that happened 12 years ago.

  1083. rrsrq Says:

    what were we seeing early on, I know what we are seeing now, what the Bucs defense does with mediocre QBs.

  1084. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    They need to fire Smith tomorrow and have Dufner take over

  1085. Rod Munch Says:

    Mike Smith will be right there with his buddy Dirk as they stare into the distance looking like complete morons. Nothing will change, Smith will keep his job, Licht won’t make any moves, no, it will be up to the offense to score 40 a game to keep it close.

  1086. Rick Says:

    Blow this team up please. Dirk, smith, grimes, gmc, Vernon, curry, conte, Licht, Jameis, please. This talented young roster is regressing. The proven players are wasting away on a horrible team and their window is closing. This is humiliating.

  1087. Season Is Over Says:

    Hahah!! The worst defense in Buc history. How could you be worse than Lovie? Morris? Schiano? Comical. The weak-ass media in this town needs to do their job.

  1088. Bucamania Says:

    Bucs don’t have a single player who can cover anyone. I mean none.

  1089. SteveK Says:

    We need Jameis to show us something good from this game.

  1090. bucs_1 Says:

    ill go one further how many times have teams hit 30 points at HALFTIME since him becoming DC ill wait

  1091. Bucs bradenton Says:

    I have diarrhea

  1092. Rod Munch Says:

    BucsBandit – Ah, what’s wrong cupcake, you’re sad you boy Fitz got benched? Hey I wasn’t for benching him, not in this game. Anywho settle down darling.

  1093. Dover Buc Says:

    What did we do to deserve this type of punishment from our coaching staff? Or such a beating. I want new scouts and coach for the defense. I’m trying hard to explain this to my kids. And the 5 and 9.

  1094. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  1095. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    bonzai you get really high if u see some positives here, this dude set a 70 year record

  1096. SteveK Says:

    Mike Smith shouldn’t make the flight home. He should be sent on a retirement cruise. His defense sucks fiercely.

  1097. BucsFan90 Says:

    Worst defense in Bucs history. Can’t get any worse than this (and we were dead last year lol)

  1098. BUCWAD Says:

    Shamus throws the pick, welcome back, hope he had a good vacation. This is a truly poor excuse of a football team. Optoma sticky saying 4 and 12.

  1099. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Buc 68. I think he was talking about the RB Howard for the Bears. I haven’t heard anything about the Bucs Howard.

  1100. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Trubisky about you murder the NFL td pass record today!

  1101. JimmyJack Says:

    What in the F*** man? What the frick is this defense doing?

    I just don’t want this as my football team. Got completely embarrassed six days ago……and apparently they didn’t even practice or prepare this week. You can’t convince me that this defense even practice this week There’s no way

  1102. bucs_1 Says:

    if he ha a job tomorrow we as fans need to know its time to pack it up for the year

  1103. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    That guy said we’d be eating crow LOL 😂😂😂😂

  1104. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Trubisky going for a 10 TD day.

  1105. Ed Kerber Says:

    #1). I’m still ticked that the Bucs weren’t looking at Mack
    #2) anybody with empty cardboard boxes should drop them off at at One Buccaneer Place so the defensive staff can pack.
    #3) John Fox should be given a chance to show what he can do

  1106. ATrain Says:

    Evans caught that ball

    Imagine that

  1107. Bucs Bradenton Says:

    I have diarrhea

  1108. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    Mike Smith or no Mike Smith, there is just very little talent on this defense.

  1109. lambchop Says:

    Jameis almost getting Evans killed. Accuracy sucks.

  1110. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Winston with a nice throw to Evans.

  1111. jmarkbuc Says:

    Look a throw where ME has to climb the ladder and give up a kidney

  1112. Ugh Says:

    Gazers need to sell the team if they’re just going to keep their heads in the clouds.


    If we don’t make the playoffs I would fire EVERYONE ELSE at the end of the season!

  1113. Rod Munch Says:

    jmarkbuc – Dirk has never been head coaching material, just go back to that Denver game at home when he QUIT on the team. He literally quit. The team is down by two scores, Winston finally hits a big play on 3rd down to make it 4th and short, from inside the Broncos 45, it’s the 4th quarter, and Dirk punts the ball. After the game he’s asked about it and he whines and says we didn’t move the ball all day, why would we move it then. Literally the play before that they got like 17 yards or something.

    That’s Dirk, he’s a quitter. He’s the same coach Winston has to give a pep talk to last year when all the rumors about Gruden were going around. The guy isn’t an NFL head coach. He was a good coordinator, but as a head coach, he’s too much of a flake.

  1114. BucsBandit Says:

    Rod – I wanted Fitz benched. The QB controversy is a distraction for this team.

  1115. theodore Says:

    Just wait till Mike Smith makes his 4th quarter adjustments.

  1116. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston back to his horrible tosses putting everyone at risk of getting hurt. That was one of the good thing about Fitzpatrick.

  1117. bigdaddio Says:

    JW can’t perform against a well schemed talented defense that puts on relentless pressure too? I thought that only applied to Fitz.

  1118. Bucamania Says:

    This team is so soft and mentally weak.

  1119. Bird Says:


    They need to have team meeting after this one.

  1120. unbelievable Says:

    OJ Howard is out with a knee injury for whoever was asking earlier…

  1121. SchwiftyBuc Says:

    I thought you weren’t allowed to tackle a QB low?

  1122. ATrain Says:

    Funny statement

    Mack makes everyone around him better

    MCCOY needs someone on the line to help him play better

  1123. Jim Says:

    I mean it, if this continues for another 3 or 4 years, I’m gonna find another team. I’m serious…

  1124. BucsBandit Says:


  1125. Season Is Over Says:

    The Season Is Over. Dirk “We were done by Columbus Day” Koetter.

  1126. JimmyJack Says:

    This just looks like another Bucs team that’s getting ready to pack it in for the season.

    This team don’t give a crappy about winning. They are gonna load around now, put their 16 in and get ready for a 6 month break.

    Just another Bucs team that doesn’t care. Been that way for years. I can handle another one I guess.

  1127. unbelievable Says:

    Even Marpet is playing poorly now.

  1128. lambchop Says:

    Marpet looks over-hyped. Sucking.

  1129. Rod Munch Says:

    The Winston haters should protest him being in the game by going to their kitchen sink, looking under the counter there, find a bottle labelled Drano and drink.

  1130. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Why run???

  1131. jmarkbuc Says:



  1132. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    where are you at??????????????????????????/

  1133. ATLBucs Says:

    I get soooo tired of making these scrubby quarterbacks look like hall of famers. Every freakin’ WEEK!!!!@!!!

  1134. EA Says:

    Is Godwin inactive?

  1135. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Marpet is evening giving up now

  1136. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Winston with time to throw, goes through his progressions and checks it down for 6. Winston so far completing all of his passes. Winston pressured and sacked 1 second after he receives the snap… Bucs with 2nd and 17. 7:10 and counting to go in the 3rd. Nichols pops pads for another loss. Barely had time to take the handoff… Humpries with a marginal gain on another completion by Jameis. Punt Team.

  1137. Ndog Says:

    All of a sudden Marpet is trash too

  1138. Zwak Says:

    Don’t understand this JW is going to get hurt in this game and for what?

  1139. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    where are you at??????????????????????????…

  1140. Rob Says:

    But it was all fitz’s fault? Whole team. No one showed up to play.

  1141. Season Is Over Says:

    What, you mean moving Marpet to his third position in three years was a smart move? Lmao! He was a pro-bowl level RG and Koetter thought he was going to shock the world with his genius coaching moves. When Marpet goes back to RG he will actually be good again.

  1142. jmarkbuc Says:

    Hump has had more touches in two series than all year..

    DK take back the playcalling.. ?

    Might as well ball out. Or forfeit at the end of the quarter.

  1143. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis looking good so far getting his feet wet to begin his 2018 season.

  1144. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    the bears defense is just playing soft zone…………….they don’t have to anything put wait out the clock

  1145. ElioT Says:

    This O-Line really is nasty huh?

  1146. Pete Mitchell Says:

    Fire everyone.

  1147. Architek Says:

    This looks like a lot of players aren’t winning individual battles.

  1148. BucThis Says:


  1149. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    the bears are just gonna kill the clock

  1150. JimmyJack Says:

    The Oline has given up. They only want the game to be over they want to get on their first class plane ride. That’s all they care about right now and then getting a 2 week break. They won’t be doing much work during these two weeks I can promise you

  1151. Rod Munch Says:

    Hasn’t Marpet has been going against Mack quite a bit? Mack is probably the 2nd best defensive player in football behind Donald and if you have no running game they’re going to constantly bring pressure. Not a good day for Marpet, but then again the dumb coaches set him back a year of development by needlessly moving him to center. Yet another moronic move by Dirk that cost the team.

    Anyways Marpet will be fine when he’s not going against the Bears, he looks just fine in week 1 and 2, and was OK in week 3.

  1152. Season Is Over Says:

    The Bears fans are leaving their own game early in the 3rd. Lmao!

  1153. Bird Says:

    They are not worried about trubinski getting hurt cause there is absolutely no pressure.

  1154. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    the defense has NO HEART

  1155. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    This will be a good loss is we fire mike smith IMMEDIATELY

  1156. JimmyJack Says:

    I just saw Isiah Johnson smiling. He don’t care

  1157. Dover Buc Says:

    I’m thankful we have bye next week. Sadly we’ll have to live with this embarrassment. At least we have Ira, Justin and Joe Bucsfan through the next 2 weeks to get us trough it. We’ll all need it.

  1158. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    the defense has NO HEART………..

  1159. Season Is Over Says:

    Good thing we have Marino back at QB.

  1160. Papa578 Says:

    After 40 years of being a diehard fan, if Mike Smith isnt fired forthwith , I’m finished with this team.
    Glazers’, please sell this team…you have no clue.

  1161. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m afraid if they take a knee….we will get penalized….

  1162. ATLBucs Says:

    The Windy City Whooping!

  1163. Season Is Over Says:

    Is Peyton Barber a starting RB yet?

  1164. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, a perfect defensive play by 36!

    No flag either, I thought for sure the refs would F us since that’s what they do.

    Good play 36, even if you never got your head around.

  1165. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Trubisky makes a Trubisky like throw. The Bears punt for the second time…

  1166. Bird Says:

    Jamies almighty

    Aka tmax

    Dude. What are you on? You are making weird posts that make no sense. Doing play by play. Are you on meth or something?

  1167. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Not as mad as I would be sober, thank god for beer

  1168. Spicoli Says:

    cant believe they are making trubisky look good. he constantly misses throws but not against the bucs def,

  1169. Rod Munch Says:

    How is there a G-D hold on every G-D punt!? Cut whoever keeps holding and costing the team field position and last week points, it’s insane this happens on every single punt basically.

  1170. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    holding on a fair catch. Priceless

  1171. Season Is Over Says:

    Why would this team pay LBs that rarely effect games millions of dollars?

  1172. jmarkbuc Says:


    The only thing that sucks worse than going into the bye like this..

    Is how we will come out of it. Dirk ain’t gonna blossom into a HC in two weeks, and Smitty isn’t gonna remember the definition of defense either.

    Hey but at least Jameis is back!

  1173. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Rod, 36 MJ Stewart was beat on the play. Trubisky underthrew him…MJ Stewart is too slow to be a good defensive back. It was shocking that Licht drafted him.

  1174. DBS Says:

    Chicago Ready!!!!

  1175. Season Is Over Says:


  1176. Pit Says:

    And Jameis sucks too. I don’t see him doing any better yet anyway.

  1177. Rick Says:

    Taking their foot of the gas.

  1178. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jmarkbuc: you got it buddy! Jameis is back! And that’s the only good thing that will come out of this game unless you bet on the Bears.

  1179. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis Almighty! – Can only defend the pass that is thrown, and he got his hands up at the perfect time, although he didn’t get his head turned around.

  1180. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Great blitz pick up by ROJO

  1181. Season Is Over Says:

    You can tell the game is over by the announcer’s voice.

  1182. Rod Munch Says:

    There’s Dirk’s bread and butter, a 1st down run up the middle for 1.8 yards.

    Great, Dirk is going to take back play calling duty just as Winston comes back.

  1183. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Dirk running to lose. They don’t respect our offense so your’re not going to fool them

  1184. Pit Says:

    Oh no Jamies to Evans. What a surprise time to dump Jackson and Godwin in Fantasy

  1185. Mike Evans Goat Says:


  1186. cmurda Says:

    That run right there is why JW is going to be a great QB.

  1187. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Pit: why does it hurt u so much to see Jameis in a Bucs uniform?

  1188. Season Is Over Says:

    Haha!!! OHNO running the ball. How could you possibly miss bigger than Aquoyo?

  1189. DB55 Says:

    Hi! My name is Marshall Mathers and I’m an alcoholic

  1190. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Who the heck is Pit??? Never seen this fool up here before but talking trash about Jameis

  1191. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Winston with an elusive move to avoid Mack and picks up a nice gain. Flashes of brilliance from Famous Jameis

  1192. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, first down run up the middle…

  1193. Rod Munch Says:

    Man Martin is terrible, he’s doing nothing with these first down runs up the middle, when are we going to cut him!?!?

  1194. bigdaddio Says:

    I think Quenton Flowers is available if that’s going to be the offense under JW

  1195. cmurda Says:

    If nothing else, look at that play. It’s street-yard but JW never gives up and at least instills heart on this team.

  1196. Season Is Over Says:

    Funny. Fitz didn’t need to make it look like a clown show to get it done.

  1197. SteveK Says:

    Was the missed connection to DJax on Jameis or Jackson? We need a first down down!

  1198. FR Says:


  1199. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    The Bucs SUCK and their problems extend WAY beyond their DC.

  1200. Rod Munch Says:

    Winston was incredible keeping that play alive.

    The Winston haters are so triggered right now, they just want him to fail.

  1201. Bird Says:

    So. JPP looked good

    That’s it

  1202. Rob Says:

    yup… looks like jameis. definitely a franchise guy.

  1203. SteveK Says:


    Jameis has great improv skills, but a “run” defining why they are a “great” qb is bad. That’s like Dom crowing about Michael Clayton’s blocking when he is a receiver.

  1204. jmarkbuc Says:

    Well this is really impressive..

    This is Arizona all over again, worse..no comeback this time.

    This team not prepared in any phase.

  1205. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Desean Jackson with a poor effort on Jameis first incompletion. Jackson didn’t even try. Jameis shows more talent and avoids a sack to create a PI penalty. Jameis almost got his head taken off by #95 after the throw. Bucs fans, add #95 of the Bears to your Christmas card list.

  1206. Zwak Says:

    Any coach with a brain would pull all the staters on offense at this point?

  1207. Season Is Over Says:

    Haha. Yes, Mr. Magoo is impressing everyone with his inaccurate throws and dancing with the stars routine. Did anyone see Fitzpatrick acting like a crazy person back there?

  1208. FR Says:

    Fail he has failed us for the last three years f the stats no playoffs no comp since he has been here keep on believing in this clown

  1209. Destinjohnny Says:

    Watch vea closely
    He is strong as F

  1210. BucsFan90 Says:

    How many times are we gonna run up the gut for on 1st down? Definition of insanity

  1211. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Rod Munch, the Jameis Haters divide this fan base. They should direct their anger in the correct directions..

  1212. Gary Says:


  1213. Dover Buc Says:

    The 90s losses were better than this at we were some what competitive. This is unbelievable. Big changes better be coming on defense.

  1214. FR Says:

    Fitz looks like a real QB back there Winston is just a clown

  1215. jmarkbuc Says:

    Godwin looks hurt

  1216. Rod Munch Says:

    2-2 going into the bye, again, that is better than anyone thought they’d be.

    Chill out ladies, the season isn’t over yet.

    There’s always the chance the Bucs trade for Bell and score 43 points a game.

  1217. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston getting everyone killed with his terrible throws. Glad everyone can see it now.

  1218. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go Jameis!

  1219. DBS Says:

    Has Bopeep changed his name already?

  1220. jmarkbuc Says:

    14:13 4th qtr

    DK’s first finger nail biting shot!!!!!

  1221. lurker Says:

    whelp, something but he has a lot to prove

  1222. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Smitty beat the hell out of us two times now. 56-14 in 2014! Who knows how bad he will beat us today

  1223. lambchop Says:

    Jameis getting Brate killed. Way to go Famous.

  1224. Rod Munch Says:

    Jameis Almighty! – The Jameis haters are just pieces of garbage who want the team to fail, not real fans, just garbage.

  1225. lambchop Says:

    Accuracy issues, holding on to the ball too long. Live or die with his inconsistent play.

  1226. ATrain Says:

    Was that Fitz in the side line being a team player congratulating Jamies

    Class act

    No Pouting

  1227. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:


  1228. Rod Munch Says:

    The dumb fruit Winston haters even complaining about TD passes now. LOL! What a bunch of worthless pieces of trash.

  1229. jmarkbuc Says:

    As soon as JW comes in…

    Hump and Brate, with a high throw to ME.. sound familiar?

  1230. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis is hitting the target against soft coverage. His first overthrow of the game brings up 4th and 3. Great throw by America’s QB for a first down. TouchDown!! TampaBay!! Famous Jameis Winston completes a beautiful pass to Cam Brate. Bucs only down 35. 5 more TDS from Jameis and we will be watching the most amazing comeback in NFL history.

  1231. BucsBandit Says:

    Who wants Earl Thomas for a 2nd round pick?

  1232. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    You too A$$Train!!!

  1233. Season Is Over Says:

    The season is over. You have Koetter who crumbles at the first sign of pressure. You have Winston. You have the worst running game in the league and the worst defense in the league. It is almost as if the Bucs themselves are stupid enough to read and believe Joebucfan. Hahaha.

  1234. lurker Says:

    i was all in on jameis and dubbed him the savior.
    he has let this team down in multiple ways, his attack and off-field immaturity leading the way.

  1235. Mike Young Says:

    It’s called a touchdown lambchop

  1236. Rod Munch Says:

    Does Dirk onside kick?

    OF course not.

    Will it matter?

    No, the Bears will be in the same field position as the onside kick in like 3 plays anyways.

  1237. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    @Lambchop Brate is a bada$$ Thats what they do. If ya scared to catch em’ there’s room in the Uber in the morning when the hammer comes down.

  1238. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Jameis Haters gonna Hate! I’m sure they hate the way he ties his shoes or wait, the way he buckled his chinstrap, or maybe the way he wears his Jersey.

  1239. Patrick Says:

    Earl Thomas is a worth a 2nd round pick. Knowing the way we draft, that pick would probably be a bust anyway

  1240. ATrain Says:


    Your a Tool

    Change your name to Big Jamies Jock Fan


  1241. Buc68 Says:

    What about OJ Howard’s knee he hurt trying to jump for a Fitz ball. Be nice to have him now. Winston was high on a TD pass that he had to get over the LB. get out of here.

  1242. Bird Says:

    Calvin Ridley putting up stupid numbers as a rookie.

  1243. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    here’s big play Tampa Bay defense!

  1244. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    I’ll take earl thomas and Levante bell

  1245. lambchop Says:

    @Rod Munch, some of us analyze each and every player with an open mind. Famous threw high and laid out Mike Evans and Brate to potentially knock out our star players. I don’t need to put blinders on when we can potentially deplete the offensive weapons squarely on inaccurate passes. Don’t get your players killed, whoever you are.

  1246. Rod Munch Says:

    What would Earl Thomas do? You’d still need at least 2 more corners, and they’d still be running this worthless Mike Smith defense.

  1247. ATrain Says:

    David could be a Fox Commentator


  1248. Season Is Over Says:

    Why does it feel like we are back in the gutter?

  1249. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Aww poor putty tst got him feelings hurt.

  1250. Rod Munch Says:

    lambchop – Winston hasn’t played in a month, his timing isn’t going to be great yet. You’re just whinning to whine, if you weren’t you’d say, hum, he hasn’t played in a month, how does he look by that standard.

  1251. Season Is Over Says:

    Thanks for taking the worst angle ever, Kwon. It only gave them six yards and a first down.

  1252. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    @ season is over If you don’t like what you read on here let your fingers do the work for you and find something else to read

  1253. cmurda Says:

    Not even a sliver of heart on this defense. Kwon and LVD have looked pathetic all day and Kwon continues to miss tackles.

  1254. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Naw lil lady I don’t swing that way, but I’m sure you’ll swing for a dude with a beard

  1255. Bird Says:

    Seems like bears run the same plays on offense over and over again.

    And we still can’t stop

  1256. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy showed up bigtime on that drive.

  1257. Rod Munch Says:

    So was that three plays to get into the same position as a failed onside kick, or was it four plays?

    Either way, why not onside kick when your defense has no hope of stopping anyone.

  1258. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    We’re 2-2 Pu$$ies after today. Could be worse

  1259. unbelievable Says:

    Nassib now hurt.


  1260. lambchop Says:


    That was WAY over any LBs head homey.

  1261. Season Is Over Says:

    McCoy thinks his detractors have no leg to stand on.

  1262. John5 Says:

    Is it just me, or is Kwon really not playing up to his level or with any intensity? It’s been the whole game. Not just the second half from the blowout.

  1263. SteveK Says:

    Glad we got a TD.

    Really want to see Winston hot DJax for a big one before it’s over.

  1264. jb Says:

    We’ve got a good offensive nucleus minus a decent O-line, Running Back, Defensive Line and secondary. Add the fact we have the worst defensive coordinator in the league, and we’re looking at least a 3 year rebuild! ANOTHER WASTED SEASON, by the shortsightedness of the Front Office and coaching staff! WHY…..WHY was Mike Smith not fired in January? WHY?????? WHY?????
    SO DEPRESSING!! SAME OLD BUCS……..NEVER gonna change!!

  1265. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Wow chunks of yardage

  1266. ATrain Says:



    Your a Tool and just like Jamies you keep proving it


    Go hump your Jamies Fathead

  1267. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    I used to think our LBs were good, but after watching this game they were either all out late and got drunk last night or they suck. They used to be considered small, fast, athletic, and aggressive but today the only one that is right is small.

  1268. Season Is Over Says:

    This is Morris level quit on this defense. McCoy included.

  1269. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    If ronde barber the new gm im not paying kwon or donovan smith crazy money these guys all are pathetic

  1270. ATrain Says:

    David will disappear after three games when the excuses run out

  1271. Season Is Over Says:

    No real NFL team plays like what Buc fans just had to watch. Anything you thought this team was is just thrown out the window. It is smoke and mirrors.

  1272. Rod Munch Says:

    Atrain continues to whine, I’m pretty sure Winston reminds him of his uncle that used to sneak into his room at night.

    Oh no, I made a non-PC, where’s your “friend” to attack me for daring to make light of the abuse at the hands of your family member?

  1273. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Ooof you hurt my feelings with that one. Musta been saving it for a while

  1274. Sharkiebucfan Says:

    We should consider selling the franchise for a ham sandwich. As a fan I would feel much more satisfied than having to watch this team lay turd after turd. Brint it back #fireshiano #firesmith

  1275. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Our talent on defensive is good, they just gave up on Mike Smith fire him!

  1276. ATrain Says:

    Rod Munch

    Your Name says it all

    Last name D$&k


    You Winston fans are such clowns

  1277. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Can’t wait to read the takeaways from this game… Some headlines:





  1278. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    ROJO still sucks

  1279. ATrain Says:

    Don’t be a team fan

    Be a player Fan

    Winston has some great Stats

    But just like McCoy he doesn’t show up for the win

  1280. Jim Says:

    is it over yet? I want it to be over…

  1281. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    hey……………DJAX is having a terrific game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1282. ATrain Says:

    Good come back David

    Back as good as a Jamies come back

  1283. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston is unwatchable. The inevitable mistake is only moments away. At least with Fitz you had some hope. This season just took a turn off a cliff.

  1284. Dewey Selmon Says:

    It going to come down to a 12 game try out for Winston to save a lot of jobs. No run, no defense, it’s all coming down onto your shoulders.

  1285. ATrain Says:

    This game is so bad my DVR quit recording and deleted it

  1286. Rod Munch Says:

    Yeah Season, it’s unwatchable, so don’t watch it, instead head down to the Skyway, go to the top, jump off.

    God bless you on your journey.

  1287. Macho Man Says:

    Season is Over nailed it

  1288. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Bucs fans arguing with Bucs fans… usually it’s other teams talking smack to other teams. Life as a Bucs fan….

  1289. Season Is Over Says:

    I’m sure glad I bought a hat in 2009. The only support I have shown the team since they were good enough to fire Jon Gruden.

  1290. Jim Says:

    The Two Minute Warning! Yes!!

  1291. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Dewey Selmon Says:

    It going to come down to a 12 game try out for Winston to save a lot of jobs. No run, no defense, it’s all coming down onto your shoulders

    — good take.

  1292. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Lichr is such a bad talent evaluator/GM, bucs need a safety what they do? nada, bucs could have grabbed mack… naw lets get carl nassib…. bucs do bucs crap

  1293. Ripcu4l57 Says:

    And…..the season looks bleak..

  1294. lurker Says:

    2-2 is a good start with the teams we’ve played.

    people were thinking 1-3 or worse. we were spoiled.

  1295. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    O/U on matt ryan TDs in 2 weeks

  1296. lambchop Says:

    Ronald Jones looking decent even though it’s garbage time.

  1297. denjoe Says:

    Licht didn’t help Smith that’s for sure!

  1298. lambchop Says:

    12 in the huddle after a TO. SMH.

  1299. cmurda Says:

    It’s tough to have a game that you take away nothing positive, but that’s what we have. Even JW throws that to end hope for him.

  1300. Season Is Over Says:

    You mean Barber and ROJO with 3 ypc? The OL was the problem. Color me shocked. Who saw that coming? Not sure why Martin was blamed for two seasons. Lmao!

  1301. lurker Says:

    we need a qb!

  1302. Timbucs2 Says:

    Well I will say this, Jameis puts the “assault” in air assault

  1303. bigdaddio Says:

    Well, Winston surely has a stronger arm than Fitz, so his terrible throws get on target faster. So he’s got that going for him. Which is nice.

  1304. Bird Says:

    What was that.


  1305. FR Says:

    Yea Winston fing idiot

  1306. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    lurker the bucs are a horrible 2-2 team, bucs might have 3 more wins on the schedule amd winston is not worth 20 million

  1307. jmarkbuc Says:

    nice toss…

    what was that guy a DE?

  1308. Rob Says:

    Jameis is so damn good!

  1309. SteveK Says:

    Ugly pick by Winston. As bad or worse than any of fitz’s
