All Healthy For Jameis Entering Bye

September 30th, 2018

Torrid pace continues

Joe’s fishing for positives, and those weapons for Winston? They’re all healthy now entering the bye week, including the offensive line.

The plate and the slate are clean for America’s Quarterback going forward.

Next up after the bye week? The pathetic and undermanned Falcons secondary on turf made for these Bucs receivers. The Falcons defense was torched through the air again today, this time by Andy Dalton.

Through four games, DeSean Jackson has a stunning 17 catches for 424 yards and two touchdowns, after another strong game today. It’s a Pro Bowl pace, and his 48-yard catch in traffic from Ryan Fitzpatrick was such a thing of beauty as he slowed his gear and gave up his body while keeping his balance.

Mike Evans is on pace for 116 catches and he’s hauling in a great percentage of targets.

You know the rest of the cast. Jameis Winston has plenty with which to work.

If Caleb Benenoch doesn’t get him maimed and he doesn’t throw to Ronald Jones, then there’s no reason Jameis shouldn’t have excellent success. This offense is good enough to average at least 25 points per game.

Joe really likes how well the table is set for Jameis. Now he just has to get the job done.

    America’s QB Famous Jameis Winston is back! That’s a starting point.

    Fire Mike Smith now!!!!!!!

  4. T-Dog Says:

    25 points a game is great for an offense, but Mike Smith’s defense can do that in a half.

  5. Orlampa Turd Says:


  6. Rob Says:

    Because turnovers, uh, I mean getting the job done is what he does.

  7. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Start Fitz again

  8. CT Buc's fan. Says:

    Absolutely you’re correct in that the table IS set for the Buc’s offense to score at least 25 points per game.

    Only problem being that they might need 50 points per game to get into the playoffs.

  9. SkBucsFan Says:

    What good is 25 points a game going to mean when we give up an average of about 40 per game?

  10. Tval Says:

    Jameis can lead this team to an 8,9,10 win season..and that’s saying a TON. Put Jameis on the eagles and the team doesn’t change a bit. Bring wentz to Tampa and NEITHER do the Bucs..fitzmania was hysterical tho..I’ll give the fanboys that

  11. Lamarcus Says:

    Wouldn’t matter because the defense doesn’t look to hold the wreack havoc billing

  12. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    DJAX had another nice game again today

  13. Pete Mitchell Says:

    Fire Mike Smith Now!!!

  14. CHris Says:

    Doesn’t matter if we can’t play defense. The massive debacle today made us one dimensional once again.

  15. Juggernautical Says:

    Mike Smith has to go….we had a solid 5-6 game stretch in 2016 but otherwise it’s been abysmal

  16. diggler Says:

    LOL another idiot post. Now that JW is back DJAX will disappear.

  17. buc15 Says:

    Howard left the game with a knee injury

  18. Zwak Says:

    Smith should go ASAP!

  19. NPRSageBoy Says:

    America’s Turnover Machine is back. Typical Jameis day; 1 TD and 2 INT. Are you feeling it, Tampa Bay?
    Couple that with a dreadful Mike Smith D and you’re looking at the #1 overall pick again. Let’s not blow it this time.

  20. Pryda...sec 147 Says:

    Jameis Winston !!!! Welcome Back!!! Let’s ride baby!

  21. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Go get a healthy rb in Bell. My God it’s not hard to figure out. Everyone knows you can’t run that’s why they’re dropping so many back in coverage. Bears penetrated with 3 or 4 easily Oline get better, start Evan S. Can’t say his last name right now. Licht, brother you had better try your a$$ off to get Bell or your probably gone with the rest of them

  22. IsrBuc Says:

    You mean all the weapons America’s qb pro bowler jamies winston kept missing last year.

  23. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Trade McCoy!

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    Please Glazers..Give us a glimmer of hope..from Somewhere?………………
    FIRE MIKE SMITH IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Sweeptheleg Says:

    I bet a 100 bucks Winston has 2 picks against the falcons.

  26. Greg Says:

    Winston cant hit Jackson, Throws 2 interceptions and some of you cant wait to bring him back. He sucks! Bears played a soft coverage in the second half and we still couldn’t move the ball. Winston again cant lead receivers only hitting them when they are standing still facing Winston. Fitz put up better numbers even in a loss than Winston ever will in his sorry career but sure lets insist on bringing him back. After we lose well fire the GM and coaches and start all over. #Brownsofthesouth.

  27. kenny s Says:

    how bad is oj knee

  28. Season Is Over Says:

    I bet Jackson is stoked that Winston is back.

  29. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Even the browns are now better. We are the worst. Well maybe the bills are worse. But it’s a toss up

  30. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    And people wonder why and Bitc# about that Ray Jay is half full with opposing teams fans. Remember the days when there was like 20,000- 30,000 on the waiting list for tix. Balance the offense. Fire $hitty Promote Buckner. And let’s kick some A$$ Bucs #gogetBELL

  31. Mike Johnson Says:

    To hell with the offense. It can score. We just cannot stop..ANYBODY.
    Buc fans…that was an A.. Whippin. That was Embarassing to the 10th power.
    If we cannot do any better than this. Hell, either sell the team or clean house..Now.

  32. DBS Says:

    Oh NPR forgot the fact 1 of the picks was not his fault. But his hand hit by Mack. But then how would he be saying that if it was Fitz? Oh wait.

  33. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    what a DUMB COACHING MOVE by the colts HC….he gave the Texans the game

  34. kenny s Says:

    greg relax winston hasn’t played since the 3rd preseason game, don’t be stupid,

  35. passthebuc Says:

    I just returned from the future. Buc’s win the super bowl in 2075 after being in last place for 50 straight years.

  36. ElioT Says:

    The Bucs are 2-2, not bad on the surface.

    Look more closely and realize it took a QB playing two near perfect games to get those two wins. Those were the first two games of the season, not a lot of tape for opposing teams to scheme on.

    This team has ZERO running game and ZERO defense.

    I don’t care if you duplicated Fitz’ first two games for the next 12, with the lack of rushing attack and this abomination of a defense, you’re not winning much.

    This is just typical.

    The Bucs just rip the life out of the fan base over and over again.


  37. Not there yet Says:

    The positive at this point is thank goodness for the bye week, don’t wanna here anything about this team unless someone is getting fired or traded.

    Thank you bucs for giving me my life back in the off-season. I’m out on that trash until games are played because I listened all off-season to the fake so called leaders talking all off-season about accountability and how they changed, Its funny they tried to make it seem like it was all Chris bakers fault but didn’t see any accountability today for guys jumping offsides or being out of position but I did see lvd on the sideline pouting and this was a bad look for smith, dirk and Licht a real bad look

  38. Ndog Says:

    EllioT nailed it, we have to play perfect at the QB position to have any chance and that is fair to ask of any QB of any era. This is just ridiculous that our defense is so unbelievably horrible.

  39. Robert Says:

    Mike evans cost us the start to these last 2 games. I think he did it intentionally to get jw back

  40. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I think if Winston had started that game, the score would have been much closer.

    I still think 11-5 is reachable, but the bye week is the time to make a change at DC. I hate to say it because I’m usually against firing staff during a season, but we have to bring in new blood to replace Mike Smith.

    Do not promote from within. Do that, and we stick with the same defensive playbook, which clearly is not working.

  41. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, I’m taking a break from the website for a few days. I know how things become after a loss.

  42. AJ Says:

    Watching Khalil Mack dominate for the Bears since he got traded. And wondered what he could’ve done for us. If we had the balls to pull off such a big trade. But then I come to the realization. That Mike Smith would just having him dropping back into zone coverage.

  44. Oneilbucs Says:

  45. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Fire Mike Smith or this whole team is toast!

  46. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    This defense is to complicated for the players to get and Mike has shown us just doesn’t work in the NFL. Get the defense just playing the basics.

  47. Gene Deckerhoff is my hero Says:

    Glad to see fans calling for heads. Something needs to happen. Jason Licht is an extension of Lovie Smith. Fire Licht. Get Gutless Koetter outta town and see ya later Mike Smith.

  48. Gene Deckerhoff is my hero Says:

    It’s also nice to see that the Jameis fans and jameis haters agree on something.

  49. Buc4life24 Says:

    Non of that talent matters when teams even with a young mediocre QB can light us up like that!! Enough is ENOUGH!!!! Our D needs a big jolt and it starts with addition by subtraction…fire Mike smith!

  50. BucTrump Says:

    Trade mccoy for picks and a rg…use said pick 3rd and get bell…give him geralds money and have a high power mike smith and let Buckner call the plays..its really that simple..if we can find a safety or cb on the trade blk or market that be nice

  51. BucHead5588 Says:

    Dhjax has 3 TDS BTW

  52. Gene Deckerhoff is my hero Says:

    Just got off of Facebook… wheweeee are fans not happy. The glazers hand is forced. Smith is gone. Koetter next. Then Licht. Only a few anti-Jameis posts too. That alone is an alarm that things are not looking up

  53. INSPIRED? Says:


  54. VaTom Says:

    Compare and contrast Winston and Fitz first halves back this season? Look, Fitz sucked. I don’t care if anyone says Winston got reps, but they better add in how much he sucked. The Franchise QB aswer is NOT on this roster. Also the D sux. Torched over and over. I feel better about the inadequate qb situation then I do about the D.

  55. James Walker Says:

    The Bears were the better team. Winston only scored because Chicago lightened up after running the table. No team was beating Chicago today.

  56. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Mike Smith coaches like he’s still on the fowlgoons’ payroll
