    Mike smith on his way out if he jits the bed in this one…..

  2. BucThis Says:

    Only way we win this game is because JW3 lights it up

  3. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    I’m feeling a win today… I think the offense has a great day and the defense will make just enough plays. Julio will go off but I think Winston will too. GO BUCS!!!

  4. MadMax Says:

    If JW3 comes out playing bad…please just end it and put Fitz back in and be done…JW will be a highly paid back up…..

  5. BucThis Says:

    You definitely don’t pull JW you need to evaluate him throughout the season

  6. Walter Says:

    If the Falcons score 50, Smith should be fired for sure, no excuses.

  7. ATrain Says:

    No Jamies PLAYS all 12



    IF THE BACKUP goes 2-2 with the TEAM


    NO F$@& EXCUSES !!!

  8. Fartman Says:

    Let’s get this loss over with so we can start thinking about the draft.

  9. ATrain Says:

    Stupid Question

    How long do you have to be here before Joe Answers you

  10. Jean Lafitte Says:

    In the same breath If Jameis can’t keep up and gifts Atl points how can you blame Smith and the defense? No excuses

  11. Easy Says:

    Can’t afford to have a slow start today in the dome. Punch this team in the mouth early and make plays!!

  12. Jean Lafitte Says:

    right on Easy

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    Smitty … TURN THE DOGS LOOSE! Let them hunt. NO GUTS … NO GLORY.

  14. SB Says:

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

  15. Season Is Over Says:

    I hope Mr. Magoo brought his glasses. Two interceptions will lose this game.

  16. Season Is Over Says:

    Thanos is on the active list because McCoy needs someone to play next to in order to be effective.

  17. mark2001 Says:

    I hope Jameis plays “lights out”. And if not, God help us. Then where are we?

  18. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Everyone get your excuses ready and start figuring out who you’re gonna blame when Winston goes out and has 2 picks and a fumble and loses 48-17

  19. jmarkbuc Says:

    So NFL teams each get $250M +/- in TV revenue, even if they just run 47 guys off the street out onto the field every week, and nobody attends the games.

    Here’s an idea.. put all the TV rev in a big pot and the better your team finishes the bigger share you get.

    Slotted 1-32.. SB winner gets the most, all the way down.

    Maybe then the Glazers would be motivated to put a good product on the field, instead of getting their money for nothin’ and their chicks for free…

  20. Easy Says:


    You are an idiot

  21. jmarkbuc Says:

    How am I an idiot?

    You perform better, you make more. You don’t..you get enough to cover the salary cap and expenses…

  22. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Go Bucs!! Best Time o of the week right here, right now!

  23. ATrain Says:

    GO BUCS !!!!!!!

  24. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Send the GD house Smitty! Enough of this tippy toes BS! Go Bucs baby!

  25. jmarkbuc Says:

    Players have incentive clauses…

    owners just laugh all the way to the bank…

  26. firethecannons Says:

    Jameis looks glassy eyed with a fake smile–hope he is dialed in

  27. cmurda Says:

    I have to believe this is do or die for Mike Smith and his defense. If the Falcons put up at least 30 points especially if we lose, there has to be a contingency plan in place to get rid of Smitty and replace him.

  28. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    You two want to argue take it to another post. Gameday thread about the game!

    What must the Bucs do to stay in the game in the fourth quarter??

  29. ATrain Says:

    Is Allen playing

    I think that is one big difference on the DLine

  30. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Yeah Beau and VV full participation and getting a big workload this afternoon

  31. cmurda Says:

    @jmark I don’t know about your philosophy with shared TV revenue but I really like the free chicks part.

  32. ATrain Says:

    I’m calling it now

    JPP will have 2 sacks

    DLine will be a beast today

  33. Jean Lafitte Says:

    What must the Bucs do to stay in the game in the fourth quarter??

    good QB play

  34. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I think Ryan Smith will have a breakout game today.

  35. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    The contingency plan was to get rid of Schmitty at the start of the bye week. Unfortunately, we are stuck with him until the end of the year.

  36. Bird Says:

    Cmon Jameis.

  37. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Agreed…JW just don’t try and do too much brother.

  38. Bird Says:

    Yes sir

  39. MadMax Says:

    Nice run up the gut Barber….gj O line!

  40. MadMax Says:

    WTF was that JW?

  41. Bird Says:

    Yah boy

  42. MadMax Says:


  43. Easy Says:

    Winston Sharp early

  44. SKBucsFan Says:

    That’s the start we needed!

    c’mon defense It’s your turn to shine now!

  45. Easy Says:

    Lol CANtanzaro

  46. Trench War Says:

    go for 2 next time every point is gonna count

  47. Wesley Says:

    F@ck kickers!!!!!!!!!

  48. Gobucs Says:

    I feel bad for Desean Jackson. Winston just can’t hit him.

    I hate kickers

  49. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ugh. I hated that they replaced Murray. Well, better an XP than a FG.

  50. Bird Says:


    At least we got td

  51. MadMax Says:

    What? a missed extra point? come on man!!!

  52. FreeTheSecretWeapon Says:

    More suprised when we make a field goal… So missing them no longer discourages me… Pretty sure the team feels the same way…

  53. ATrain Says:

    Winston sharp early

    Come on

    Call it True

    Lucky it wasn’t Int in end zone

    He got it done but sharp. Nah

  54. Architek Says:

    {Accuracy??} DJax was wide open

  55. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No Evans, No Howard, No Djax, No Hump…..still we score….

  56. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    TBH at this point we need to replace anger too. It can’t be all theses kickers are that bad. I’m thinking anger might just be a $hitty holder

  57. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LMAO! You CANT make this stuff up with our kicker.

  58. SKBucsFan Says:

    Licht is already scouting a kicker to take in the first round next year

  59. cmurda Says:

    Kicker. Wow. WTF! How can you not kick a 30 yard extra point. That’s a momentum killing miss. I freaking hate our lack of ability getting a kicker. I love that first drive by JW but it’s such a downer to miss the free point.

  60. Season Is Over Says:

    Mr. Magoo almost threw the pick in the endzone and the kicker misses extra point. I see they were practicing hard in the bye week.

  61. unbelievable Says:

    Meanwhile I’ll bet Matt Bryant makes all his kicks today.

    Thank dummynick for that one. We haven’t had a good kicker since. It’s pathetic.

  62. Season Is Over Says:

    Anyone see McCoy get stoned with single blocker on last play?

  63. Architek Says:

    By Grimes

  64. Bird Says:

    That’s a cushion

  65. unbelievable Says:

    Way to cover your man Grimes! Keep up your soft BS coverage!

  66. Moreon Says:

    Well Brate is happy Winston is back

  67. Season Is Over Says:

    Worst defense ever. Lol!!

  68. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    God please let’s us fire these idiots

  69. BucThis Says:


  70. Moreon Says:

    Defense looks worse every week. Time off didn’t help any

  71. canadianbucsfan Says:

    Enough is enough. Fire smith

  72. cmurda Says:

    Ryan Smith and Grimes. I smell a Smitty firing after this one. JW will have the pressure on him to score TD’s every possession.

  73. ChanEpic Says:

    @Season is over, almost through a pick = didn’t throw a pick. Hush!

  74. Bird Says:

    Bye mike smith

  75. Season Is Over Says:

    The defense truly sucks at everything. You have to go out of your way to be horrible at everything.

  76. unbelievable Says:

    This defense is so goddamn pathetic.

  77. Matts17 Says:

    Hilarious. Guys wide open just like the Bears game.

    Fir Licht for not firing Koetter for not firing Smith.

  78. Architek Says:


  79. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Now THAT is how you play defense. LMAO! You CANT make this stuff up

  80. AtlBuc Says:

    Same D so far.

  81. cmurda Says:

    Bye Bye Smitty. You have 2 weeks to get your defense ready and Ryan could have made easy throws with his left hand. Zero pressure from the D Line yet again. That doesn’t help your crap secondary one bit.

  82. Easy Says:

    Lol defense is still bad. I don’t understand the MJ Stewart love though, he’s been a step slow all year long.

  83. Defense Rules Says:

    Focused on Grimes & Ryan Smith that whole drive. They’re BOTH playing way off instead of being aggressive. Prescription for disaster if the DLine doesn’t get to Ryan (which they didn’t). Smitty … you’re blowing it.

  84. Radsy Says:

    Nothing softer

  85. bucs_1 Says:

    i love our 2nd and short or 3rd and short but our DB’s are 15 yard cushions LMAO gonna be a long year boys

  86. bucs_1 Says:

    i love our 2nd and short or 3rd and short but our DB’s are 15 yard cushions LMAO gonna be a long year boys

  87. Season Is Over Says:

    Watch McPloy on that last drive.

  88. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    sigh….. Mike Smith

  89. ChanEpic Says:

    @Matts yep

  90. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Mike Smith is un freaking believable. Dude

    Haven’t you learned that a soft cushy 15 yard cushion is easy to play against. Getting beat deep is not the problem. It’s QBs gashing us with easy completions. Dirk your the head coach, do something about this embarrassing pee wee scheme.

  91. Spicoli Says:

    This is what coach Smitty game planned for these 2 weeks.

  92. unbelievable Says:

    Matt Bryant doesn’t miss.

    If only we had a guy like him for our kicker all these years…

    Oh wait. Thanks again pop star!

  93. Boise Buc Fan Says:

    Still playing 9-yards off their receivers. Great strategy!

  94. BucThis Says:


  95. Moreon Says:

    Pretty sure be new coaching staff in Tampa next year.

  96. Easy Says:

    Vea needs to get up off the damn turf and stay on his feet.

  97. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    it’s gonna be a track meet.

  98. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    At Least Mike Smith is facing a familiar foe…. Oh wait….

  99. Buclife91 Says:

    Wat kind of defense are they runnin u look at other NFL. defenses across the league they bump the receivers wtf we not even touchin em that’s how they getting so open every play wtf wtf wtf

  100. Season Is Over Says:

    McPloy wants a redo.

  101. Radsy Says:

    I agree Easy, MJ is proving his draft critics right with a lack of speed. The love comes from preseason where he had a couple good games.

  102. aj Says:

    If this team wants to make playoffs this year, they need to go out and get a corner. A good, costly, one.

    Father Time has caught up to Grimes.

  103. Wesley Says:

    Bucs gonna lose 48-47 because of a missed extra point.

  104. Bucsfan77 Says:

    OK everyone say it with me


  105. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    If not for Fitz we’d be o and four… Defense is a bad bunch of dudes in the wrong way

  106. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Am I not allowed to comment?

  107. bucs_1 Says:

    glazers dont care they get their revenue check this is what tampa will be until glazers sell if ever

  108. Troy Says:

    Two weeks of practice on Defense for this? Smith has got to go. He should be fired now; in the first quarter. It’s the same D I saw in Chicago. No adjustments.

  109. Moreon Says:

    2 worse defenses in the nfl

  110. jmarkbuc Says:

    If we’re gonna play off 10 yards all day these Sanu, Ridley and Julio won’t even break a sweat..

    Grimes is just a spectator…

  111. Buc68 Says:

    I realize we suck on Defense. I just wish could take away 11 yard hitches.

  112. Bird Says:

    Quiz is never gonna take one to the House.

  113. Easy Says:

    Take Quizz off KR please.

  114. Sailor Jerry Says:

    Could our corners play further off the line? Terrible game plan. Ridley, Jones will always be able to pick up 8-10 yards every snap.

    Need to play tight off the line or it will be like a death by 1000 small cuts.

  115. Gobucs Says:


    Playoffs? Are you serious?

    Not gonna happen with this defense.

  116. aj Says:

    If coaches go, keep Buck. He is great and charismatic. Good leader. Had a great radio show before he got back into coaching, so he is a great communicator.

  117. unbelievable Says:

    Rodgers literally runs straight into the group of defenders.

    Special teams and defense is such a goddamn joke with this team.

  118. Rob Says:

    Fire that worthless defensive coach immediately. Do not wait until halftime. Worst defense in NFL history. Good God. Go Bucs!

  119. bucfan1988 Says:

    I am sooooooo freaken sick of seeing this POS defense of the Bucs. BOTH CORNERS (Smith & Grimes) ARE GIVING 10 F’N YARDS OF SPACE AT THE LINE.

    This is the most weak-ass pathetic excuse for a scheme that I’ve ever seen!!!

    You don’t see a team in the NFL that gives that much space on zone coverage. There is ZERO disguise, and this scheme doesn’t play to the strengths of its corners which is PRESS COVERAGE.

    Get Smith the hell out of here!

    I’m done watching this pure CRAP on defense.

  120. ATrain Says:

    Where is DJax

    With these weak CB

  121. Radsy Says:

    Offensive coordinators must laugh all week scheming against our defense

  122. Trench War Says:

    another circus catch

  123. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    We need 14 play drives to keep OUR defense off the field.

  124. Bird Says:

    Don’t run right

  125. Easy Says:


  126. bucs_1 Says:

    why does Evans take himself out after every catch lmao

  127. Spicoli Says:

    Jameis with a nice check down to Barber for a 1st down.

  128. unbelievable Says:

    Should have gone play action right there

  129. Gobucs Says:

    Winston getting players hurt with his terrible accuracy

  130. ATrain Says:

    Can Winston not see DJax

  131. Gobucs Says:

    Poor Desean Jackson.

    Useless with Winston

  132. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    And our OL doing some SERIOUS run blocking…LMAO!

  133. Bird Says:


  134. SKBucsFan Says:

    He didn’t throw it away. That’s growth

  135. ATrain Says:

    This what we get with all this Winston talk

    Who fault is this

  136. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    BALL game

  137. Trench War Says:

    here we go, we gave it back

  138. cmurda Says:

    JW wrong read. O Line has been trash. Defense is worse than trash. Good job coaching staff. That much closer to an entire regime change.

  139. Easy Says:

    Props to Winston for not forcing a throw in that situation.

  140. Gobucs Says:


    Winston can’t see or hit Desean Jackson. He can only hit bigger players that have to make a circus catch

  141. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Our first down running plays suck……every time.

  142. Bird Says:


    Desean will become an 11 million dollar ghost.

  143. Bucnut2 Says:

    Winston back to being Winston. OJ and DJ will be totally lost weapons now that America’s turnover machine is back.

  144. unbelievable Says:

    Why in the f@ck would you decline that penalty?

  145. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    This coaching staff is bush league. If we don’t score on every possession we are gonna get blown out. Mike Smith can stop my high school Wing T offense. Smh

  146. Rod Munch Says:

    4 runs up the middle on first down so far, all for about -2 yards. Dirk is back!

  147. Aaron Says:

    how many plays will it take for Atl to score? Over / under 6.

  148. denjoe Says:

    when they get you in 3rd and 12 you know that line won’t hold up.

  149. NJBucsFan Says:

    So Mitch T has returned to form…3 completions for 9 yards and 0 TDs. #firemikesmith

  150. BucThis Says:

    Put mike smith on the field so he can se how sh!tty his defense is

  151. Gobucs Says:

    Game over. Falcons will score in 5 plays.

  152. Bucnut2 Says:

    Aaron- I’ll take the under.

  153. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Anyone for an 86-yard TD drive?

  154. Rod Munch Says:

    Are the Eagles declining a penalty there, making it 4th and 5 from the Falcons 45? No, they take the penalty and go for it, but Dirk coaches like a coward.

  155. Trench War Says:

    beautiful throw Matty Ice

  156. aj Says:


    The offense is really good. If the defense is just not a complete sieve. Personally, it’s time for GMC to go. i love him, but we aren’t going anywhere with him. If the can package him with a pick or two, maybe the D gets lucky.

    Ok. The line sucks. Dotson is old and hurt, Benecoch stinks, Donovan has to let someone go without being touched at least once a game.

    Whey do they have to do that to me when I’m trying to complement the offense?

  157. Thetruth Says:

    60 yards TD catch coming now

    Bucnut : change the channel if u don’t like NW

  158. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Being a Buc fan is equivalent to hitting oneself in the head repeatedly with a hammer every Sunday.

  159. Bucnut2 Says:

    WOW. a play without a first down for All

  160. Anonymous Says:

    Where’s the pass rush?

  161. Spicoli Says:

    Put JPP in zone coverage… Great call smitty

  162. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Mike Smith is a “professional” defensive coordinator and we have couch potato fans with beer bellies who could run a better defensive scheme than this.


    We could make hillsbough county high school receivers look good against us.


  163. cmurda Says:

    Matt Ryan sits back for 7 seconds. Zero pressure. Buckner doesn’t exactly have this D Line doing anything at all.

  164. Bucnut2 Says:

    nice d there

  165. Bird Says:

    I think beau Allen and Ryan Jensen are the same person

  166. BucThis Says:

    LD54 got shook!!!!!

  167. bucs_1 Says:

    LMAO WIDE OPEN!!! nothing new what a joke

  168. ATrain Says:

    Even the commentators are calling Mike oit

  169. Spicoli Says:

    Great play by the def for once… Nevermind

  170. Bucnut2 Says:

    no pressure

  171. Annoyed In CT Says:

    There playing scared? No there playing Mike Smiths D

  172. ChanEpic Says:

    Fire MiKe Smith at halftime. I can coach this crappy defense for a quarter of what he is making

  173. Wesley Says:

    We have DUMB players, like really dumb.

  174. denjoe Says:


  175. Destinjohnny Says:

    Justin Evans is awful

  176. 4th Down Says:

    Why did they decline the penalty? That should’ve been an automatic first down. It was 4th and 12

  177. Bird Says:

    This defense is que terrible

  178. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking turn of events – Dirk the coward punts on what would have been a 4th and 5 from the Falcons 45, and the Falcons are over midfield in 4 plays.

  179. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  180. AtlBuc Says:

    Ryan’s 10 for 10. another hall of fame performance

  181. cmurda Says:

    3rd and 10 no problem. We just won’t cover the tight end. This is impossible to watch. Points every drive for the opposition.

  182. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Who is “Hoams”

    What are we doing?


  183. Dooshlarue Says:

    I hope our owners just heard what Chris Spielman said about our defense playing too far off receivers and being scared,
    Fire Mike Smith now!

  184. unbelievable Says:

    So. Pathetic.

  185. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Buckner is not some great guru he would have been employed just like his DC in zona got a job but didnt take buckner

  186. MadMax Says:

    ROFLMAOOOOO!!!!!!!! OH!!!!!!!!!!! who is that commentator calling out Smith for playing scared?? LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

  187. unbelievable Says:

    Who the f@ck is Hoams??

  188. Trench War Says:

    11 for 11

  189. MadMax Says:

    Is that Ronde?

  190. Bucnut2 Says:

    Will the Bucs force Ryan throw a single incompletion today?

  191. T REX Says:


    Dirk sucks.

  192. Trench War Says:

    all of em perfect throws

  193. AtlBuc Says:

    The best years of Mike Evans, Jameis Winston, OJ Howard, Chris Godwin will be wasted with this defense

  194. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s 3rd and 14, so play everyone back 25 yards and come up and make the play in front of you! It’s simple football! Oh wait, how does math work again?

  195. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, it was Chris….thanks!

  196. Moreon Says:

    Atlanta should give up on the run. With the passing game being so productive for them. Isn’t that 11 out of 11 got Matt Ryan

  197. BucThis Says:

    Matt Ryan goes for 49 of 52 347 yards and 4 touchdowns

  198. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Wow….held them to 7 in the first quarter. So there is that!

  199. Gobucs Says:

    He may not have an incompletion all day.

  200. Drew Says:

    Worse than the 76 Buc’s D. Absolutely horrible. Say goodbye to Koetter and Smith at the end of the year.

  201. Troy Says:

    This is the poorest coached defense I have ever seen. No pressure. Playing scared. Weak like Smith. Pathetic. Almost unbearable to watch.

  202. canadianbucsfan Says:

    I’m sorry but buckner getting all this love is crazy. Other then big talk what has changed?

  203. bucs_1 Says:

    3rd down? it will be a first watch

  204. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk the coward should punt the ball on 1st down going forward. That’s the safe thing to do.

  205. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    love this color commentator. He’s on point with his critique of the secondary.

  206. cmurda Says:

    @Rod. Let’s make a prediction on the 3rd and 14. We rush just 4, don’t bring a blitz and play secondary back, get no pressure and we get toasted for a 21 yard completion.

  207. Moreon Says:

    Ha hs

  208. Trench War Says:

    Evans stretched out to make that circus catch and got hurt

  209. Gobucs Says:

    O can’t wait till koetters stupid as s is fired. He’s an idiot

  210. AtlBuc Says:

    That right cover up your face

  211. ATrain Says:

    How long does Winston get if this crap throwing

    Before JOE calls him out


  212. Bird Says:

    To easy

  213. bucs_1 Says:

    lmao wow just to easy

  214. unbelievable Says:

    So. Goddamn. Pathetic.

  215. Buc believer Says:

    I am at the game and they are just carving up our D!!! Smith HAS to be fired!!

  216. Moreon Says:

    The ever elusive incomplete pass

  217. Rod Munch Says:

    I love Kwon, but you don’t put him one-on-one with Julio Jones…..

  218. Gobucs Says:

    Winston got mike Evans hurt with his terrible accuracy.

  219. cmurda Says:

    Even better than my prediction. Kwon on Julio. Now thats a great scheme Smitty

  220. BucThis Says:

    I hope Smith gets banished from the NFL

  221. AtlBuc Says:

    Now they’re running on us OMG!!!

  222. Trench War Says:

    we can’t give it back and expect to win

  223. unbelievable Says:

    You Winston haters are more pathetic than our defense.

  224. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I was just about to say the rush D looks good…

  225. Wesley Says:

    If i’m Atlanta i’m throwing on every single down.

  226. Moreon Says:

    Time to start looking at next year

  227. Bucnut2 Says:

    Hey Joe- what a great observation earlier today. The Falcon’s line looks like its falling apart.

  228. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Glad to see the Falcons running game is going well

  229. cmurda Says:

    Bye Smitty. There will be no excuses for Smitty anymore. The Glazers have to demand that he be gone if this continues and it will.

  230. Moreon Says:

    All new coaching staff and defenders that can cover

  231. AtlBuc Says:

    Third and long. No problem with def playing 15 yds off

  232. LongSeason Says:

    I have a serious question. Are the Bucs playing prevent defense all game every game?
    Communication has been blamed for defensive underperformance since Mike Smith has been here. Obviously he can’t solve this. Don’t even let him on the flight back.

  233. Gobucs Says:

    Winston will start to force things and have a few picks and probably get another receiver hurt with his terrible accuracy.

  234. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – it literally looked on that play like the defense had no idea where the 1st down marker was – and since it was all the DBs doing that, it means that was the defensive call.

  235. ATrain Says:


    Your name fits


  236. Wesley Says:

    Ha ha we suck!

  237. Phillybuc Says:

    Thanks McCoy

  238. AtlBuc Says:

    OMG the Mccoy haters will love this one

  239. Anonymous Says:

    Gerald came through when it mattered the most again

  240. denjoe Says:


  241. Bird Says:

    Wrong guy.

    We are pathetic

  242. SKBucsFan Says:

    Weak call

  243. Bucnut2 Says:

    there goes our one stop for the day.

  244. Buc21 IDAHO Says:

    That wasn’t McCoy. It was 92

  245. bucs_1 Says:


  246. Gobucs Says:

    G a m e


  247. Buc believer Says:

    Oh yeah with line help McCoy will do great! Yeah he just cost us a TD! PH…k you MCoy!!

  248. Moreon Says:

    This defense is just a joke. Maybe JW and the offense can outscore them.

  249. Spicoli Says:

    Yep that sounds about right, make a stop and give them first down$

  250. AtlBuc Says:

    No lane integrity

  251. cmurda Says:

    You have to be kidding me. They call that on Mr. Useless but no holding offense???? Laughable. Bye Smitty

  252. ATrain Says:

    Another Elite Player making Elite plays

    Instead of stopping the offense he gives them the first down


  253. JabooBuc Says:

    Sorry but if that was what they called then that is some weak ass sh@t

  254. EA Says:

    GMC came through when it mattered the most

  255. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Why do they keep calling him a pro bowler….LMAO!

  256. Bird Says:

    Smitty is gone.

  257. Bucnut2 Says:

    Now is the time for Winston…. to start his TO machine!

  258. Dom is gone ... Licht? Says:

    Atlanta rookie running back Has no problem seeing the field.

  259. ERIC Says:

    Thanks Gerald…. just gifted then a free td

  260. BuccoDav Says:

    I didn’t see a linebacker anywhere near that play. Are they playing?

  261. Trench War Says:

    Now can Jameis answer the bell

  262. NJBucsFan Says:

    This D is godaweful

  263. cmurda Says:

    Bye Smitty. He should be fired by halftime.

  264. unbelievable Says:

    That is a terrible terrible call.

    As usual we are also playing against the refs.

    And now we let them walk it in.

    Everything about this defense is beyond pathetic. Can’t wait to hear what excuses the mike smith apologists will make this week.

  265. University of Seffner Says:

    2 weeks to prepare, and still look like GARBAGE! 2 drives, 2 touchdowns #FIREMIKESMITH

  266. Walter Says:

    Please fire Mike Smith

  267. Moreon Says:

    When do the players start to get tired of being the laughing stock of the NFL and start to mutiny

  268. Gobucs Says:

    I predict Winston will have a pick on this drive and the FSU homers will blame it on someone else. Probably Fitzpatrick fault.

  269. rick Says:

    mccoy IS OUT THERE?!

  270. Spicoli Says:

    Rate to see JPP not make a play on that run.

  271. Rod Munch Says:

    Remember this drive was brought to you by Dirk declining a penalty that would have made it 4th and 5 from the Falcons 45. The Eagles hope for it – Dirk the coward punts the game away. You have to be a complete moron not to know the Falcons score, yet Dirk, once again, punts when other winning teams go for it.

  272. bucs_1 Says:

    anybody here that thinks we have a shot this year let alone this game please leave now, i know we should be optimistic with our team buttttttttt yeah lets use our heads here

  273. MadMax Says:

    just fire mike smith right now and promote Buckner!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  274. denjoe Says:

    Time to clean house again I wish, the owners could go too.

  275. Matts17 Says:

    No one touched the Falcon RB. Just walked in.

  276. ChanEpic Says:

    “People” watching the defense and find a way to blame Jameis for their ineptitude = peak buc fan. The only thing worse than this defense is the dumb crap coming out of some fans mouths.

  277. NJBucsFan Says:

    We have to score every possession to have a chance to win and we already punted once. This game is over.

  278. Tbbucs3 Says:

    2 weeks of preparation……

  279. cmurda Says:

    Kwon? Regressed. LVD? Regressed. D Line? Unheard from. Secondary? Don’t even ask.

  280. Aceofaerospace Says:

    You’re right coach. What good would it have been to fire Mike Smith 2 weeks ago? Pathetic.

  281. Darin Says:

    Man I wish Chris Spielman was coaching this defense instead of calling this game. Its hard for him not to laugh at this laughingstock.

  282. unbelievable Says:

    You Winston haters are so pathetic.

    Only thing more pathetic than our defense.

  283. Chris in WA Says:

    Every team we face might as well deactivate their punter on GameDay.

    They won’t need him anyways. Just need the kicker.

  284. ATrain Says:

    Pay that idiot 100 Million

    Now pay Mr Crotchgrab 100 Million





  285. Drew Says:

    This D coaching staff sucks…

  286. Bucnut2 Says:

    Falcons 45-bucs 14

    October 14th, 2018 at 1:44 pm
    2 weeks of preparation……


  288. Thetruth Says:

    McCoy our and went right to his replacement

  289. BucThis Says:

    Fire this whole fxcking team

  290. SteveK Says:

    Inexcusable and embarrassing.

  291. Easy Says:

    You just can’t make this stuff up

  292. unbelievable Says:

    @chanepic – 100%

  293. Moreon Says:

    I no longer expect them to win. The prediction of only two wins is looking like a sure thing now. Thankfully Fitz got us 2 wins to start the season

  294. Trench War Says:

    you peeps act surprised we already knew our defense sucked.

  295. AtlBuc Says:

    Thats everybody’s rating against Mike Smith

  296. aj Says:

    Bad call, but it was not GMC, he was playing the other tackle.

    Buck’s favorite saying is that if you don’t have the jimmys and joes, you can’t do the X’s and O’s.

    So I think someone needs to ask him if he has the JImmys and Joes.

  297. Trench War Says:

    It comes down to QB play

  298. Bubba82 Says:

    Bye Mike Smith

  299. mike43605 Says:

    I’m so f’n fed up with watching this team. They really need to fire this Smith

  300. Darin Says:

    For all the fire Mike smith now people, you’re over a year late. Not gona happen they have told us. Just pray for turnovers

  301. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk should come out on 1st down and run up the middle for no gain then punt on 2nd down, just to be safe.

  302. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Why is anyone even complaining today?????

    This is EXACTLY what was expected from an average offense and the word to defense in the history of football.

    Nothing to complain about. It is what it is.

  303. Anonymous Says:

    Also, Trubisky is lighting up the scoreboard at Miami. Lmao! What a joke of a D.

  304. Gobucs Says:

    Winston can’t hit the broad side of a barn further than 15 yards

  305. bigdaddio Says:

    I propose a new advanced NFL Stat. The Mike Smith Metric.

    The Mike Smith Metric is defined thusly–Calculate the total number of possible points (ignoring extra points) a team can score in a game. If a team gets 10 offensive possessions, the base Mike Smith metric is 60. Then take the offensive points actually scored, subtract extra points and take the ratio of points/potential points.

    It essentially measures how much better a defense is than having 11 tackling dummies on the field. A score of 1 is equal to no defense at all.

    So far in this game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Mike Smith Metric is 1.

  306. denjoe Says:

    were still missing xp’s and still giving up points every drive koetter can’t fix shiite.

  307. Bird Says:

    Jpp wants out

  308. Troy Says:

    If Tampa had an average coaching staff, they would destroy this Falcons team

  309. Bucnut2 Says:

    Winston is horrible!!!

  310. Bucnut2 Says:


  311. Gobucs Says:

    It’s absolutely hilarious that you people actually thought we had a chance in this game.

    With this defense and Winston it’s a recipe for disaster.

  312. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Buckner and JPP jawing. Not a good look. Should they not have been doing that for the last week?

  313. bigdaddio Says:

    I would further postulate that if you defense is hovering around 0.7 on the Mike Smith metric, you should never punt.

  314. EA Says:

    2 weeks to prepare for this BS, time to clean house, should have been done last January.

  315. Bucnut2 Says:

    Put Fitz in!!!

  316. Defense Rules Says:

    DLine isn’t playing with any heart … still ZERO pressure on Ryan, even with Allen back. And just as bad, they can’t even stop the run. LBs look totally lost out there (especially Kwon). Grimes & Smith playing way too far off (not a single pass defensed). Whitehead & Evans looking halfway decent though. Smitty you asked for it … Time to blow up the whole damned thing it looks like; coaches AND players.

  317. SKBucsFan Says:

    1-2-3 Kick, 1-2-3 Kick. The Buccaneer Shuffle!

  318. Bird Says:

    Check down Charley

    The vertical passing game is gone.

  319. Trench War Says:

    That wasn’t jameis fault he had to release early because Atl all world defense BLITZED

  320. SteveK Says:

    Where was that throw to Evans? Is that on Evans or Winston? Just sloppy.

  321. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    And the ceremonial 3 and out

  322. unbelievable Says:

    Evans has to make that catch.

    The pathetic haters will blame Winston though I’m sure.

  323. ChanEpic Says:

    Lol @ Mike Smith metric.

  324. denjoe Says:

    We can’t score on their back ups?

  325. ATrain Says:

    Evans fault

    Defense sucks

    OLine sucks

    Just giving y’all the Winston Excuses Early
    Joe feel free to use

  326. BucThis Says:

    This is ridiculous it’s the second quarter and we all know this game is over.
    Fxck Dirk
    Fxck smith
    FXCK Winston
    Fxck Glazers
    FXCK this whole bucs team

    I’m out ✌️✌️

  327. Bucnut2 Says:

    TW- no he had time, he panicked as usual

  328. cmurda Says:

    That’s it. Unreal. If they score again, this game is all but over and Smitty better be gone or the Glazers and Licht will have a GD mutiny on their hands.

  329. Spicoli Says:

    That’s ball game… Bye bye smitty, koetter and licht

  330. Bird Says:


  331. AtlBuc Says:

    Why not just warm them up with blitzes? What could be worse than what they’re doing now? At least TRY something different!!!!

  332. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    And a short field. Anyone for a 54-yard TD drive?

  333. Wesley Says:

    You people blaming Jameis for this crap are ridiculous.

  334. Troy Says:

    I love how we’re running ourselves out of the game. Why are we running the ball? This game is over. Way to not be prepared to play once again.

  335. Easy Says:

    Why are we still not running to the left side?

  336. Godeep66 Says:

    Ha ha ha. JW starts and yet another loss. Bring Fitz back.

  337. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    @Bird… Absolutely. Playing scared, coaching scared. Time to clean house.

  338. bucs_1 Says:

    same coaching staff same scheme mostly same players as last year who in their right mind thought it would be any different??? I’LL WAIT

  339. Gobucs Says:

    You FSU homers are blind as a bat. The vertical passing game is now extinct.

  340. Matts17 Says:

    Clearly timing issues with Winston. Pathetic

  341. SteveK Says:

    Was that a bad throw to Evans, or a good one? I can’t tell.

  342. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is Monken still calling plays….doesn’t look like it.

  343. BuccoDav Says:

    It looked like the pass was rushed due to the blitz but if Mike had his hands up and ready, he would have made that catch.

  344. Moreon Says:


  345. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Something tells me there is already a mutiny going on between defensive players and Schmitty.

  346. Pat Says:

    Jameis Winston IS NOT going to be the answer

  347. mike43605 Says:

    Fed tf up with this team

  348. Rod Munch Says:

    Is this the same offense we saw in week 1 and week 2? No, this is Dirk’s run up the middle for no gain offense. Dirk is such garbage he saw the success Monken had and shut him down because it makes him look bad for not having the same success.

  349. unbelievable Says:

    Only complete morons are blaming Winston for that.

    Thats your cue Atrain…

  350. Troy Says:

    The game is over. This team is weak and weak-minded.

  351. PewterPower Says:

    For everyone crying about the PASS RUSH, that’s not the issue. Ryan is throwing off a 3-step drop and getting the ball out quickly.

    It’s a Mike Smith scheme issue. If you play off the ball 10 yards the underneath is there all day.

    They need to play PRESS and give the D-Line a chance to get through.

  352. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Results are the same because no change has been made. Not surprised so not upset.

  353. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    This team is scared. I’m glad I cancelled my 3 season tickets. I’m not a believer

  354. ATrain Says:

    Way to stayLoyal Wesley

  355. SteveK Says:

    I feel like Winston’s Throw to evans was a early/too hard/ in a good spot. Not a good throw overall.

    Where is the vertical passing attack? Next drive, please!

  356. Phillybuc Says:

    Historic defense for Mike Smith

  357. Moreon Says:

    We all know that Winston is a second half come from behind guy. So just wait till after half time

  358. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    You sit here and watch these other teams call plains and question why we never get creatives

  359. Easy Says:

    MJ Stewart getting exposed again

  360. Bird Says:

    Wow. This defense is Swiss cheese

  361. D Smythe Says:

    Where is Veta Vea?

  362. Gobucs Says:

    The vertical pass is extinct because of Winston.

    But you homers blame someone else.

  363. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    mf Koetter dry heaving on the sidelines

  364. Trench War Says:


    I think ball got there too early

  365. denjoe Says:

    All our qb’s are come from behind with this Defense lol

  366. Wesley Says:

    A-Train- Not an FSU fan.

  367. NJBucsFan Says:

    Bradley McDougle just killed Amari Cooper in London

  368. SteveK Says:

    Can Winston hit DJax?

    Fitz could and would.

  369. cmurda Says:

    3rd down, zero pressure. The people that have praised MJ Stewart haven’t watched 1 game. He has been overmatched and underperforming all year.

  370. rick Says:

    Alright so first round? CB or see what these young guys can do under a new defense? Maybe get a guy to play next to vita?

  371. SteveK Says:

    Thanks, Trench War!

    I want Winston to do well and I agree with your assessment. Next drive we need to be big.

  372. Gobucs Says:


    Explain why the vertical pass is now extinct?

    No one to blame for that except Winston.

    Open your stupid eyes. He can’t hit anything over 10-15 yards

  373. bucs_1 Says:

    LMAO WIDE OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL I LOVE IT

  374. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Not blaming Winston but this offense is clearly different with J Dubb no denying that. Open your eyes

  375. Easy Says:

    LOL what a joke

  376. EA Says:

    Sky is not falling down guys, let’s go fishing, season is over.

  377. Matts17 Says:

    Grimes is so done.

  378. Sharkiebucfan Says:

    This team is awful

  379. Moreon Says:

    Wide open. Even the announcers are piling on Mike Smith and the defense

  380. Phillybuc Says:


  381. Matts17 Says:


  382. Trench War Says:

    21 – 6 and I bet they don’t miss kick

  383. NJBucsFan Says:

    This is bad…

  384. jmarkbuc Says:

    This is embarassing

  385. denjoe Says:

    only an idiot like Licht would put his career in the hands of a bunch of rookie db’s lmao

  386. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Love the announcers calling out this $hit Show

  387. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  388. Bird Says:

    If smith is not fired I would be surprised.

  389. Brandon Says:

    What is wrong with this team?!?!?!?!

  390. unbelievable Says:

    That’s a good question Chris Spielman.

    We’ve been asking that on every defensive play for the last 2 years.

  391. MadMax Says:

    Yep its over…..td coming right up.

    F U Smith!!!!!!!!

  392. Season Is Over Says:

    Gerald McPloy getting spanked all day by single blocking. Embarrassing.

  393. ATrain Says:

    Wesley then your BLIND

  394. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    Just FLUCKIN pack it up now and fly home. This is embarrassing. #FireMikeSmith

  395. SteveK Says:

    Grimes sucks

  396. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  397. Bucnut2 Says:

    Let’s talk draft.

  398. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Soooo. Embarrassed

  399. T REX Says:

    The bucs suck. Dirk sucks. Monkenducks. Smithducks. Licht sucks.
    The glazers suck. ..

  400. cmurda Says:

    Grimes used to be good. How he gets beat by 20 yards is beyond me. Bye Smitty

  401. Greg Says:

    This defense has no heart. Bottom line.

  402. bucs_1 Says:

    at least 30 points by halftime for atl who wants to bet????//? its been like this since smith became DC

  403. Moreon Says:

    What do the owners have to say about this team I wonder

  404. cmurda Says:

    Bye Mike Smith

  405. MadMax Says:

    Mike and Ryan Smith!!!!!!!!!

  406. bigdaddio Says:

    Mike Smith Metric remains a solid 1.0.

  407. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    He gone!

  408. passthebuc Says:

    What’s ou

  409. D Smythe Says:

    Where is Veta Vea?

  410. MEAT Says:

    Fire MIKE SMITH!

  411. DB55 Says:


  412. lambchop Says:

    Mike Smith needs to be fired at the half. PERIOD!

  413. SteveK Says:

    We suck

    Fire mike smith

    It must stop.

    Koetter needs an ultimatum

    Now, Winston, show me the deep ball! On time and in stride.

  414. Moreon Says:

    O the Glaxers even care??

  415. NJBucsFan Says:

    Here we go…Winston in garbage time…stat accumulation mode.

  416. Rod Munch Says:

    Its OK, Dirk has the answer, a run up the middle will get us a 75 yard TD. That’s right, the run up the middle is gonna totally work this time!

  417. Bucnut2 Says:

    Forget the shootout, only atalanta is scoring. But in teh second half, with score 40-6 Winston will pile up 400 meaningless yards and Lee with be touting him

  418. denjoe Says:

    An all star team would not win with this regime.

  419. EA Says:

    I expect Joe to type a “clean house” article at half time.

  420. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    So, another Fire SMITH article Joes?

  421. unbelievable Says:

    I hope the announcers continue to call out this pathetic defense every single week.

    Pathetic doesn’t even describe it.

  422. Brad Says:

    Leave them both in Atlanta!! Fire Koetter!! First e Smith!!!

  423. Spicoli Says:

    -water boy

  424. JabooBuc Says:

    Sorry folks. This is not Mike Smith. It is clear to me they are void of talent. Grimes is now a complete waste.

  425. Wesley Says:

    A-train- he’s had one bad throw today, ONE! But hey haters gonna hate.

  426. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Please stop showing Mike Smith on camera… He’s up in that booth so uncomfortable like he’s trying to diffuse a bomb.

  427. Cs2 Says:

    Calling it now, Jameis is gonna throw a pick this drive

  428. Dover Buc Says:

    I guess Koetter is calling the plays on offense too. What a mess!!!!!!!

  429. SteveK Says:

    #1 overall pick Jameis Winston needs to put us on his back. Right here. Right now.

  430. Roger4 Says:

    Every week 30 points scored against us before the half…. Koetter is going to get fired because of mike smith

  431. Pat Says:

    Jameis IS NOT good enough to keep up. He never has been if you think about it. Fitz was able to keep up the first 2 games. Jameis IS NOT that good

  432. k_bassuka Says:

    Please just fire Smith already.

  433. Zwak Says:

    This is with two weeks of preparation!

  434. Gobucs Says:

    All you people that thought the Bucs would win. Lmao. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    4th best QB in the division means losing all division games. Offense totally different without Fitz.

    Lmao. Winston sucks. 3 and outs against the 2nd worst D in the league.

  435. Season Is Over Says:

    Brandon Says:
    October 14th, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    What is wrong with this team?!?!?!?!

    Nothing at all. It is the same Mr. Magoo and D it has been for three years.

  436. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, draft!….hmm, cb first cb 2nd, rb 3rd

  437. BucThis Says:


  438. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Fire Mike Smith now

  439. Bucs14 Says:

    Bucs defense, making every team they face look all world. Fire Smith, plz!

  440. rrsrq Says:

    Saddest professional thing I have ever seen, let’s play pitch and catch

  441. FreeTheSecretWeapon Says:

    This DEFENCE is Offensive!!!!

  442. jmarkbuc Says:


    if only that were in his arsenal

  443. Wausa Says:

    How can the Bucs continue to keep this defensive coordinator?
    They are not only on pace to be the worst defense of all time, but they are on pace to be the worst of all time by a large margin.

  444. unbelievable Says:

    Reading all the morons on JBF is actually more aggravating than watching this defense. Unreal.

  445. ATrain Says:




    Your killing me

    Did you see the throw in the end zone
    the last throw to Evans

    The leap Evans made on his catch

  446. firethecannons Says:

    wow we suck so bad– how can this team allow this to happen week after week-our defense is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD!

  447. Cs2 Says:

    Even the commentators on jbf who run a 8.8 40 yard dash could burn these bums

  448. Jfgobucs Says:

    How embarrassing…

  449. Pete Says:

    This is our 2018 team and it sucks. Get used to it. Maybe next year. Time to purge and rebuild.

  450. Cesar Says:

    I guess we can start talking about the draft

  451. cmurda Says:

    Winston hasn’t impressed except for that first drive. The O Line has been even worse thus making JW’s job very difficult. I’ll just focus on the offense because the defense is their typical self allowing every possession to end in a TD. Zero heart on that defense.

  452. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    It irks me how these last two weeks they just tried to act like all us fans are crazy and shoot all last season when it comes to Smith. I mean get your arse out of the booth and try to light some fire in these guys try something!!!! Im embarrassed as a fan.

  453. 2002WasALongTimeAgo Says:

    Mike Smith may be a nice guy, but he’s hazardous to my health and must go. The owners expect us to buy tickets? I can barely stomach watching it for free. Sad..but hey! They only care about the people in the building (you know…., the ones on the payroll).

  454. bigdaddio Says:

    GoBucsays: Re Winston. You are right. He’s not as good as Fitz right now. Vertical passing game went from hero to zero. I don’t think it matters much. It just means we lose games 49-38 instead of 42-24.

  455. k_bassuka Says:

    Shut up Pat! it doesn’t matter who can keep up with this alleged defense.

  456. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Wesley it’s not missing throws it’s reading defense… Expand your mental capacity. That’s the difference between Fitz and JW

  457. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    D has quit.

  458. Wausa Says:

    Grimes should not play another down.
    He just doesn’t care anymore

  459. Ndog Says:

    Gobucs Says:
    October 14th, 2018 at 1:55 pm

    Explain why the vertical pass is now extinct?

    No one to blame for that except Winston.

    Open your stupid eyes. He can’t hit anything over 10-15 yards

    Simple you idiot the same reason we couldn’t score on the Bears they are taking the deep ball away. Look at the first drive dink and dunk. I have been saying this all week the book is out on Monken. They are banking on our lack of running game and handling the blitz and just covering deep. It really isn’t that tough well accept for people like you.

  460. Simeon Says:

    Promote Buckner, Guy has Fire

  461. ChanEpic Says:

    Running back can’t get more than 3 yards = Winston’s fault? Defense can’t stop anyone = Winston’s fault? Winston should win every game by himself? Do you people read your posts? If so, I know why this country is going to hell. The citizenry is dum as hellllll!

  462. Fat Stacks Says:

    If Atlanta was smart, they would have taken their punter off the 53 and added another defensive back. They won’t need no punter.

  463. bucs_1 Says:

    alright the fire mike smith stuff needs to stop ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN

  464. lambchop Says:


    Stop nut huggin! Let people vent! Watching an offense run with Winston is like watching a snail crawl.

  465. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Jay Miss has not been overly impressive in his first start. Does anyone really believe he is the answer on the field? We all know he is not off the field.

  466. Frank Pillow Says:

    Bravo to Dirk and Mike- the Falcons have never looked better.

  467. Trench War Says:

    DJax stop and catch

  468. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    They shouldnt have to wait for the second half for Jameis to anything?!?!?!? That is absolutely ludacris. He’s supposed to be a stud first round pick franchise QB. He has not played worth a dam thus far. Inaccuracy and misreads. The one TD was a 50-50 ball to Brate.

    This D is attrocious, Mike Smith has to go. The Definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

  469. Rod Munch Says:

    The game was over the moment declined the penalty on 4th down and didn’t go for it inside the Falcons terrorist and kept a mediocre punt. Just like the Steelers game was over when he punted from the Steelers 36. Dirk is a coward When it comes to coaching.

  470. Bucnut2 Says:

    Wow- Winston found out DJ is on the team

  471. LostinPa Says:

    Fire Koetter! Mike Smith is only the problem because Koetter cannot stand up and do what is right for the team. Don’t worry Koetter, you and Smith can spend all the time you want together when you’re both FIRED!!!

  472. Troy Says:

    Well Dirk, I’ll tell you what to do after you can Smith. The answer is anything. Do anything because what you’re doing now is a F$CKING embarrassment.

  473. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Yawn….someone wake me when a new defensive coordinator is in place..-zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  474. Rob Says:

    Did anyone, and I mean ANYONE, not see this Curb stomping coming? Fire Koetter forgot firing Smith. Fire every defensiveback. Holy $hit I’m pissed. Glazers have to step in and admit the team has given up. Fire Koettter and most of his staff. Zero effort. Defense doesn’t even try. Miserable bunch of effing losers. Go Bucs!

  475. Gobucs Says:

    Vita Vea is fat and useless. Too fat and slow. Wasted pick.

  476. Defense Rules Says:

    JabooBuc, I agree with you … half of those Bucs’ defenders have no business being on the field. Grimes looks absolutely terrible out there. Kwon looks totally lost. And BTW, doesn’t help that after the first series, the Bucs’ offense has done absolutely NOTHING to help this team win. Bucs have dug another hole they more than likely can’t get out of.

  477. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Ryan will pass Vinny T for all time TDs passes thrown by the end of today’s game.

  478. NJBucsFan Says:

    @Chan it’s getting to be that time where Winston needs to step up. He’s not a franchise QB if he needs to be surrounded with the best at every position. Real franchise QBs make it work with what they have.

  479. RealBucFan Says:

    Watching the game with my 5 year old son. I said our defense is horrid. He responds to me, What Defense. That about sums it up.

  480. bigdaddio Says:

    Lol. Jameis is terrible. He turned a 40 yard gain into a 15 yard one on that pass to Jackson.

  481. ATrain Says:

    Great Throw Winston

    Right Wesley

  482. Wausa Says:

    We have idiot fans blaming Jameis
    What the heck….why doesn’t Jamies stop the Falcons offense?

  483. Destinjohnny Says:

    Can we all agree that Winston is average ?

  484. Rod Munch Says:

    Anyone talking Winston in this abortion of a game is just a piece of garbage who should go drown themselves in the red tide.

  485. Chris in WA Says:

    Atlanta is looking good in their homecoming game against the Bucs. I’m sure the JV squad they faced in practice prepared them for Mike Smith.

    This is exactly the team Atlanta needed to clear their head. It’s like when Alabama schedules Louisiana Lafayette before a game that actually matters.

  486. Season Is Over Says:

    Fitz is in Mr. Magoo’s head.

  487. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    We are already trying to run out the clock….LMAO!

  488. Fat Stacks Says:

    If Atlanta was smart they would have dropped their punter from the 53 and added another DB. They won’t need a punter this game. FIRE SMITH!

  489. bucball3r Says:

    Until Mike Smith is gone. I will not show up to any Bucs game. I don’t give a flying puck that I’m wasting cash on 2 season tickets. You couldn’t pay ME to watch this tish show. Smith hiding up in the booth with that silly damn smirk. I just want to knock him right in that weak jaw of his. I always said he looked like scuffed Steve Martin, and it makes sense because this defense is a lame joke and the scheme is dirt old. At least Martin can play the banjo

  490. Wesley Says:

    Tailgator- your name “gator” says it all.

  491. cmurda Says:

    We can’t get any consistency going. Nice run on first down and Jensen snaps it a mile left screwing what could have been a big play up. I can’t help but seeing pathetic coaching on all fronts right now.

  492. SteveK Says:

    Go Bucs!

  493. Rod Munch Says:

    Can we just punt already, it’s the safe thing to do.

  494. GhostofSchiano Says:

    I don’t know what sucks worse, the team or the fact I spent good money on tickets to a future curb stomping.

  495. bigdaddio Says:

    Wausa, Jameis is fortunate to have this Bucs defense. It’s like being the 2nd worst guy at your job where the worst guy is setting the office kitchen on fire and running over your best customers in the parking lot every day. I mean, yeah, Jameis is not THE problem. He’s just a secondary problem.

  496. NJBucsFan Says:

    Here comes Mr Internet Muscles Winston Defender Rod

  497. JabooBuc Says:

    They don’t score here I might as well do something productive

  498. ATrain Says:


    Ask the question why doesn’t Winston hit a receiver

  499. denjoe Says:

    If Koetter had the balls to fire some of his sorry coaches, maybe he would have saved his job. Maybe.

  500. Gobucs Says:


    You’re a nut hugger.

    Winston isn’t the answer. 4th best QB in the division. You gonna wait till the others to retire before he’s any good?

    Can’t hit a dang thing over 12 yards. Doesn’t matter what you think Winston won’t be here more than 2 more years.

  501. Bucs14 Says:

    Winston is not a franchise qb. Neither is Fitz. Anyone who thinks that in this division Winston is of the same caliber as Newton, Brees, or Ryan is insane.

  502. Phillybuc Says:

    Now were running RPO’s LOL

  503. Wesley Says:

    And Firtz looked so good against Pittsburgh right? Some of you are straight up nuts.

  504. Gobucs Says:

    Told ya

  505. rick Says:

    If we sign Winston long term, we will be the chargers, post super bowl ravens, the lions, the giants, the absolute ceiling that Winston can hope for is Matt Ryan. Good enough to tease you, but will let you down.

  506. Season Is Over Says:

    Looks like Mr. Magoo forgot his glasses today.

  507. lambchop Says:

    @Rod Munch,

    There is a thing called an offense that can keep up with the Falcons. Just in case you forgot. It’s easy to forget when Winston plays. Don’t sweat it though. Now go step on a rusty nail.

  508. SteveK Says:

    Rod Munch,

    Why does Winston get a pass? We had two damn weeks to prepare?

    Why do you make horrific insults when you get upset about Jameis being criticized.

    Just shut up and mind your business, your spouting off takes away from your football related opinions.

  509. Bucnut2 Says:

    total under throw by Winston!

  510. Spicoli Says:

    Good call by Monk

  511. Rod Munch Says:

    If you’re talking Winston here do me favor here and buy some suitcases and a bonesaw and make yourself disappear.

  512. Season Is Over Says:

    Fitz would have hit Evans in stride for the td while Winston is lucky it hits within a five yard range.

  513. Bird Says:


    No call? Bucs offense is offensive.

  514. Bucsfan77 Says:

    If we fired smith I would be still fine if we lost every game from here on out, even though I know we would win more with out him

  515. cmurda Says:

    PI defense but no call? Thanks refs

  516. Trench War Says:

    what a great pass

  517. Buc believer Says:


  518. lambchop Says:

    Jameis sucks!

  519. Gobucs Says:


    What NDOG. Defend your boy

  520. SteveK Says:

    Winston needs to light up this banged up falcons D!

    Go Jameis! I believe and expect you to ball out!

  521. T REX Says:

    Winston sucks

  522. ATrain Says:


    STUPID. A $$

  523. JabooBuc Says:

    Good job Jameis. Earn that money.

  524. Bucnut2 Says:

    America’s TO machine is back!!!!

  525. jmarkbuc Says:

    Put Fitz in

  526. Dooshlarue Says:

    There’s our JW.

  527. Wesley Says:

    Okay that was straight up horrible.

  528. Mike Evans Goat Says:

    I’m done. Gut the team.

  529. passthebuc Says:


  530. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    There are a few certainties in life:
    1) Death
    2) Taxes
    3) Jay Miss interceptions

  531. EA Says:

    This mofo can’t throw the deep ball to save his future.

  532. Keith Says:

    Oh……my……GAWD!!!! Time to throw Mike Smith in the Bay!! I’m f’n furious!!!

  533. denjoe Says:


  534. ATrain Says:

    Defend that you Winston loving pieces of

  535. Frank Pillow Says:

    That was an awesome night but bubble Jaboo!

  536. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston isn’t even throwing to receivers. He is throwing up grab balls. Wtf is going on?

  537. Rod Munch Says:

    SteveK – Do me a favor and choke on a ham sandwich, you’re too boring and stupid to live.

  538. Defense Rules Says:

    Not even close Jameis. Not even close.

  539. Bucs14 Says:

    Put Fitz back in!

  540. Brandon Says:

    Winston not looking very good.

  541. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winston CANNOT through a Long Pass to save his life

  542. Cs2 Says:


  543. Gobucs Says:

    Defend that rod munch

    NDOG you gonna blame for that one.

    Terrible terrible pass. He sucks.

  544. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Good job Jameis! Nice pick!

  545. rick Says:

    Jameis int….

  546. Matts17 Says:

    Winston is just a disaster. I see him play I see Vinny T.

  547. Trench War Says:

    can you say 28 to 6

  548. Pat Says:

    Jameis IS NOT the answer. Not anymore

  549. ChanEpic Says:

    @NJ I disagree I think JW is the least of the concern with this team. #1 is defense #2 is the head coach #3 is the GM and his terrible draft record. JW isn’t without blame but it is waaaayyyy down on the list. Evans has the receiving record. He wasn’t throwing it to himself. Cameron Brate was a nobody, etc. I’m sorry I’ve see way worse QBs succeed in better organizations.

  550. Walter Says:


  551. NJBucsFan Says:

    It’s not worth responding to Rod…

  552. Dooshlarue Says:

    I hope the Glazers are listening to Spielman and Brennen, they are spot on.

  553. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    As good as a punt

  554. SB Says:

    Everyone knows I am a big JW supporter but this $hit is unacceptable.
    I have seen two good throws ALL FREAKIN GAME!!!!

  555. cmurda Says:

    There’s JW on the deep ball. Nobody can defend his pathetic deep throws. Unreal. Fire this whole staff and JW may play his way out of a big contract.

  556. JabooBuc Says:

    Charles Barkley: just turrible

  557. Season Is Over Says:

    What are we watching? Is this someone throwing 100 million right out the window Josh Freeman style?

  558. denjoe Says:

    Hey we might see griffen, since were gonna be out of the game.

  559. Architek Says:

    Aaaaaannnnnddddd there goes Winston 🙂

  560. Moreon Says:

    Sometimes an interceptions is as good as a punt

  561. jughead Says:

    put Fitz in for the love of jiminy christmas!

  562. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    After this season, it is time to flush this coaching staff and Mr. Winston. We will be lucky to win 4 games which should allow us to pick up a new QB who can perform better on the field and we don’t have to worry about off it.

  563. Big Z Says:

    Players have quit on this coaching staff and rightfully so.

  564. ATrain Says:

    Fire Smith

    Trade Winston

    Trade McCoy

  565. Wilder32 Says:

    Oh jeez, just put in Ryan Griffin at this point.

  566. Dooshlarue Says:

    Dear Jameis…..

  567. ChanEpic Says:

    Never mind. I’m an idiot Jameis isn’t accurate.

  568. lambchop Says:

    @Rod Munch,

    You’re grippin Winston’s nuts too hard. He can’t throw a proper INT with that tight squeeze!

  569. MadMax Says:

    Time to bail….fk this shtshow

  570. NJBucsFan Says:

    Winston is not a franchise QB

  571. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Anyone for a 94 yard TD drive?

  572. Ariel Says:

    Fitzpatrick thanks for the best two games of the season!

  573. Phillybuc Says:

    If this is at the 1, it would be our best play of the day

  574. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Everyone arguing about Winston, while our swiss cheese defense allows the Falcons free rein. Funny

  575. McBuc Says:

    Leave it to the Bucs to fix the other teams defensive issues.

  576. Rob Says:

    America’s turnover machine,the human ATM, back at what he does best. Had one pick dropped in the end zone but the bafoon still can’t throwa deep accurate pass unless you count throwing it right at the defensive back. That dude sucks. Go Bucs!

  577. Chris in WA Says:

    Don’t worry guys! Winston will get a bunch of yards in the 4th quarter after its a 3 score game. Then we can add more to the “useless stats for a QB under 25” category.

  578. EA Says:

    BTW, the bears have 0 points against Miami thus far.

  579. Troy Says:

    Can we start a thread for who the coach should be?

  580. JabooBuc Says:

    Best defensive play yet

  581. bigdaddio Says:

    My only interest in this game going forward is to see if the defense maintains a 1.0 Mike Smith metric.

  582. Bird Says:

    Rod butt munch

    Do the same

  583. unbelievable Says:

    Welp, the writing is in the wall.

    Blow the whole thing up.

    Time to start rebuilding. Again. 10 years of rebuilding and counting…

  584. Season Is Over Says:

    Put Fitz in for the sake of the fans that are left.

  585. Big Z Says:

    Better start working on getting Josh McDaniels, it’s going to take a lot to get him from the Pats.

  586. swissPolitics Says:

    Don’t worry JW worshipers; he’ll get garbage time stats when the bucs get even further down.

    Then you can talk about how many yards he throws.

  587. Moreon Says:

    How do I get to see new comments without having to post a message

  588. Dooshlarue Says:

    Hey GMC…… don’t make me laugh.

  589. Ndog Says:

    Now rip Winston cause that was both a crappy and stupid throw.

  590. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Sorry, 99 yard TD drive

  591. denjoe Says:

    Do we have any fundamentals on this team? This coach SUCK’S

  592. Season Is Over Says:

    Peyton Barber is about to show us why he is a number one back. He may wait until the second half of the season. Not sure yet.

  593. Spicoli Says:

    99 yard drive for atl now?!?

  594. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Winston’s better than our punter. Way to pin down that Atlanta offense Jameis!

  595. Simeon Says:

    If Ryan goes 99 yards on this drive I don’t see how they keep any fans without firing smith.

  596. Wesley Says:

    That was as bad as fitz’s pic 6 against the Steelers, let’s see Griffin.

  597. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Playing against the worst defense in the NFL with this offense and you can’t move the ball. It’s JW guys, if it smells like a turd it’s a turd. He’s not the reason we’re horridly on defense but each component of the team is responsible.

    Why didn’t Fitz struggle with his other reads and putting up points against MUCH better defense? You’re ignorant if you don’t feel he’s part of the problem.

  598. Moreon Says:


  599. k_bassuka Says:

    This team makes me throw up.

  600. JabooBuc Says:

    Wow is Grimes bad. Straight out puss on that last run

  601. Resurrection of Fitz Says:

    No Jameis DJax connection the game and season IS OVER!!!

    Time to cut the grass. Lol

  602. Season Is Over Says:

    I feel the fun slowing down.

  603. Big Z Says:

    Doesn’t matter who the quarterback is without a running game and defense your quarterbacks going to be throwing the entire game it’s easy to play defense dime packages all day long

  604. DBS Says:

    Not average. His usual. 0 to 6 points in the first half. # Weapons for Winston.

  605. Angry In CT Says:

    Please Trade Winston Let Fitz rolll the rest of the season Get a Real coaching staff….Can we get a Go fund Me for a Fire Koetter Billboard We should flood one Buc with letters of Fire Koetter show the Glazers The little fans they have left care more than they do about winning…Thank god for the Lighting Mr.Vink is a real owner

  606. Elita Vita Says:

    We start with 2 wins this season, a quarterback who was offensive player of the week (twice) and now fans are already looking forward to next years draft…Gee Whiz!

  607. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Brent Grimes looks like Steph Curry trying to play cornerback

  608. Ryan T. Says:

    This is damned disappointing. NFL players are neurotic little princesses who live and die by “momentum.” Today’s game is a perfect example. The Bucs are losing because the Bucs are losing. They don’t believe in themselves. The coaches are pulling punches. Defense is playing it safe because they’re worried about getting burned. Its psychological dysfunction on a team scale. I’ll keep the game on in the background in case something changes, but I’m throwing in the towel on this match-up.

  609. Trench War Says:

    need a TD

  610. Simeon Says:

    “What a surprise there”

  611. Dooshlarue Says:

    JW fumble or pick this drive?

  612. bigdaddio Says:

    Newsflash. Bucs defense improves from a 1.0 to 0.75.

  613. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Elite Vita

    Have you seen the defense?

    They are worse than bad.

  614. Season Is Over Says:

    How are the Joes going to explain this one?

  615. denjoe Says:

    There is a chance koetter told him to throw the pick. lol

  616. NJBucsFan Says:

    Big Z – Barber is averaging 5.8 yards a carry right now…not sure how much more of a running game Winston needs

  617. SKBucsFan Says:

    no harm no foul…other than the time wasted. Now let’s get one back !

  618. k_bassuka Says:

    Let’s go Bucs!

  619. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    EV…. Because we are not Believers in jw

  620. Tbbucs3 Says:

    The commentators reaction to a Falcons punt says it all.

  621. Bucs14 Says:

    Where the heck is Mike Glennon? Remember when many of yall loved that guy?

  622. Thetruth Says:

    Put Winston in shotgun

  623. Season Is Over Says:

    Ever notice Winston has to run around like a madman and Fitz never did? It is because Fitz has vision and doesn’t need glasses being able to get the ball out on time.

  624. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    As long as Glazers have any say in the hiring of football operations people, including GM, the results won’t change. Insanity.

  625. Keith Says:

    Time to watch the Falcons March 99 yards. Ugggh

  626. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    If he throws another Pic I’ll be at a complete loss

  627. Bird Says:

    Wow. We look like the Harlem globetrotters.

    Keep Jameis throwing 5 yard passes.

  628. Moreon Says:

    Ha ha

  629. Trench War Says:

    Mike Glennon wasn’t called America’s QB and the face of the FRANCHISE

  630. ATrain Says:

    What has change for the first Two games???

  631. passthebuc Says:

    Who gets the interception

  632. Moreon Says:

    Go bucs

  633. BuccoDav Says:

    Moreon… refresh your browser.

  634. Season Is Over Says:

    Jason Licht draft picks about to take over the game.

  635. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Jason Licht worst GM in all of football responsible for this mess, he has one legit NFL star in 5 years and that is mike evans….everything else is crap, this year he drafts vita vea after passing d james 2x, 2x, he signed 4 DL in offseason why draft one, when y9ou have the 2019 draft stocked with DL, then you pass on quality starting RBs……this team and franchise is flat out garbage and will not change until the entire front office and staff is gone, this is ridiculous, this crap out there

  636. bigdaddio Says:

    Jaboo must hate Desean Jackson. The defense pre snap was screaming something over the middle, Jackson breaks wide open at 8 yards with plenty of space, Jaboo throws a 1 yard out to the RB who is covered.

  637. rick Says:

    dirk is going to ride this nightmare defense all the way to the end. smith has the ride or die bish that all guys dream of…

  638. Keith Says:

    We’ll waddya know? 3 and out?

  639. wisconsinbucsfan Says:

    mike smith worst DC all time

  640. denjoe Says:

    Once again they know exactly what were gonna do.

  641. stvcl Says:

    Wow…Bengals vs Steelers is on CBS. It’s a better game. Coach not letting Smitty walk the plank is going to cost both of them their jobs. At 2-2 you’d think they would do everything to win, like pull Winston and put in Fitz. JW not the answer. Might as well clean house, we’re done.

  642. Tackleblockwin Says:

    This is us after a bye week…not good.

  643. Season Is Over Says:

    I thought Winston played well in Atlanta and their defense was missing everyone? Oh, wait, you mean we actually do suck and were being sold snake oil. You don’t say.

  644. Moreon Says:

    So who is the Bucs next victim

  645. Gobucs Says:

    How are the Bucs not scoring on this pathetic falcons defense?

  646. D-Rome Says:

    Totally confident, right guys?

    What a joke! Can’t believe *ANYONE* predicted more than 8 wins. Some even had them at 11 wins. Absurd! I said 7-9. I overestimated them.

  647. denjoe Says:

    Lovie is laughing having a beer somewhere.

  648. Moreon Says:


  649. JabooBuc Says:

    Totally legal hit

  650. SteveK Says:

    Go Jameis!

  651. ChanEpic Says:

    I apologize to each and everyone of you who have been hard on JW. You’re right, I was wrong. This team is garbage JW included. So sorry to have been so wrong.

  652. Dooshlarue Says:

    There’s our true leader.

  653. Bird Says:

    maybe that will spark them

  654. Trench War Says:

    poole lowered his helmet

  655. Moreon Says:

    Now Winston has an excuse

  656. Bucs14 Says:

    That hit was clean.

  657. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Lmao off Jenson vs the entire Falcon sideline.

  658. ATrain Says:

    How is he not thrown out

    He Lowers his head

  659. Destinjohnny Says:


  660. Dooshlarue Says:

    Congratulations ChanEpic.
    Now webster, 1987 and others will see the truth.

  661. unbelievable Says:

    Unbelievable they didn’t throw a flag for that hit on Winston.

  662. Wilder32 Says:

    Jameis still plays too much like a rookie at times.

  663. cmurda Says:

    There is a conspiracy against the Bucs. The personal foul not being called is ridiculous. ATL is gtting away with murdered.

  664. SteveK Says:

    Slide, Jameis! Damn

  665. Bird Says:

    Good pocket presence.

  666. Geno Says:

    ChanEpic Says:

    I apologize to each and everyone of you who have been hard on JW. You’re right, I was wrong. This team is garbage JW included. So sorry to have been so wrong.

    He may have leadership ability and solid arm talent. However, he is still less than average at reading what the defense gives you.

  667. Big Z Says:

    Pretty pathetic offense when your quarterback is your best running game

  668. Gobucs Says:

    Bout time

  669. Moreon Says:

    Winston will keep running until he gets hurt

  670. BuccoDav Says:

    Hey, we’re still in this game…

  671. Trench War Says:

    we needed that go for 2

  672. ATrain Says:

    O J is the MAN

  673. SteveK Says:

    Jameis should’ve slid.

  674. JabooBuc Says:

    Uh oh. We left too much time

  675. SKBucsFan Says:

    omg he looks like a skittish cat with ADHD when he pulls the ball down

  676. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston makes it looks easy like Fitz. I guess Winston will work as long as we don’t have to pass over 20 yards.

  677. k_bassuka Says:

    Finally! Let’s GOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

  678. Moreon Says:

    Let’s see the defense turn it up now

  679. ATrain Says:

    Why not go for 2

  680. Spicoli Says:

    Ok I see you Jameis… Nice way to close out the half

  681. Easy Says:

    Winston doing all he can to cover for this sheet defense

  682. Mord Says:

    Shouldn’t they have gone for 2 there???

  683. Bucs14 Says:

    This is football bro. That hit was clean. Magoo lowered his shoulder and got clocked.

  684. ChanEpic Says:

    @Geno – no argument from me.

  685. SteveK Says:

    Good throw to OJ!

    Let’s go bucs!

  686. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    OJ is a bull.

  687. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Just don’t feel excited after we just scored to make it an 8 point game. How pathetic is that?

  688. bigdaddio Says:

    One addendum to Mike Smith metric. Kneel downs don’t count towards the statistic.

    So far: Bad Falcons defense 0.4. Really bad Bucs defense 0.75.

  689. RustyRhinos Says:

    Winston sure does have good feet for sure.

  690. cmurda Says:

    It’s drives like that when you just say, man JW just carried us on his back. He needs to be that guy. He is shifty and not slow running the ball. That whole drive was great decision making. If he could continue the smart decisions and get better at the deep ball, Winston has all the tools.

  691. lambchop Says:

    The throw was slightly BEHIND OJ. Good on Juice to grab it.

  692. SteveK Says:

    Agree w Geno. Not enough seen yet, but we have the rest of the game and the next 11 to make a decision.

  693. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Well done Jameis, I effin love Jensen. Great signing

  694. Bird Says:

    Oh lord.

    We are in prevent prevent

  695. JabooBuc Says:

    And you thought I was kidding about leaving too much time

  696. Trench War Says:

    Jameis should be running well, he just had a 5 week vacation

  697. JabooBuc Says:

    Absolutely awful

  698. Easy Says:

    MJ Stewart keeps getting exposed

  699. Wesley Says:

    It’s official Mike Smith IS ret@rded!

  700. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Hold them to 3

  701. cmurda Says:

    What an indictment on Smitty right there. 26 seconds left and his sorry ass defense can’t get to the locker room. OMG is his defense a disgrace.

  702. Pete Says:

    The defense can’t even let us go into halftime with hope.

  703. k_bassuka Says:

    This defense stinks!

  704. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Ryan Smith never presses ever but Mike Smith has him press when the Falcons are in a 2 minute drill with 15 seconds left?

    Mike Smith sucks

  705. WeAreLost Says:

    Why the fu*k is 11 always wide open.

  706. Season Is Over Says:

    I vote they put those tackle dummies on wheels out there on defense and invest the rest of the money on offense. McPloy makes 16 million per season.

  707. Destinjohnny Says:

    Justin Evans is simply awful

  708. Rojas Says:

    No type of pressure all game lol..

  709. Spicoli Says:

    Yeah that seems right… Play to not give up the TD lol, this def sucks

  710. Buc believer Says:

    A FG with 26 seconds left!!! WOW thought I saw it all

  711. 911bucs Says:

    Let me guess there won’t be a halftime speech again this week.

  712. Trench War Says:

    they get the ball first second half

  713. Frank Pillow Says:

    Note to Smitty- probably a good idea to cover #11 at some point

  714. Colonel Angus Says:

    Let the rebuild begin. Smitty should be fired at half

  715. Spicoli Says:

    We’ve had 2 weeks to fix these communication lapses on defense and our players are still making the same mistakes.

  716. k_bassuka Says:

    What a joke

  717. Tbbucs3 Says:

    The defense has somehow gotten worse since Lovie.

  718. RustyRhinos Says:

    Wow Two plays 14 seconds 35 yards.

  719. Wesley Says:

    26 seconds for god sake! WTF!

  720. cmurda Says:

    It’s a good thing we got rid of Matt Bryant, we haven’t had any problems finding a good kicker since. Dominic crumbled this team but Licht has had ample time. This staff is out of excuses. The hatchet is coming after this. 5 possessions. 3TDs and a FG given up.

  721. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:


  722. Ndog Says:

    Again how can this defensive staff have jobs?

  723. Troy Says:

    If ownership does not step in on this coaching situation, they need to sell the team.

  724. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go Buccaneers!

  725. Kevin Says:

    Fire Koetter and Smith

  726. GhostofSchiano Says:


  727. Tbbucs3 Says:

    I thought Lovie Smiths Defense was rock bottom, but Mike Smith has found a way to crack through those rocks to form a new low.

  728. Bird Says:


    That’s bad football. We are boring again.

  729. denjoe Says:

    Were a laughing stock again.

  730. TampaBayAllDay Says:

    R.I.P Mike Smith

  731. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    I got ridiculed for saying 6-10/7-9 before the season, this team is just not any good and the personnel is so far away from being legit nfl caliber players that can win championships is laughable

  732. Spicoli Says:

    Let’s see what Smitty can dial up in the second half to confuse this ATL offense

  733. unbelievable Says:

    I’m guessing dirk will say nothing to the team again.

    Cuz that’s how good coaches motivate.

  734. cmurda Says:

    240 yards passing given up in 1 half. No Freeman for the Falcons. Smitty is done. On pace to give up 48 points again and I expect it to happen. The Glazers have made all the wrong calls and Licht has to with this staff. Allowing Koetter to have Smitty as D Coord was the dumbest of all.

  735. Mudslide Middleton Says:

    Two weeks to work things out, improve communication…. nothing changes. Any defense at all, and this is a playoff contending team. Terrible.

  736. Patrick Says:

    It’s been the Buccaneer way to suck to oblivion all but 8 or 9 seasons of our 42 year history.

  737. University of Seffner Says:

    So after Winston gets us a much needed touchdown, the defense gives up yet another score. Not suprised. #FIREMIKESMITH

  738. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    Well the good news is we will have a new defensive coordinator after this game.

  739. Thetruth Says:

    Give me Rex Ryan to finish season as DC thai scheme is soft and takes away from physical play

  740. brooks55hof Says:

    Slumpbusters are BACK

  741. Wausa Says:

    The Bucs problem is defensive coaching
    Anyone that wants to blame it on something else is blind

  742. Moreon Says:

    Wow I thought the Bears had the best offense in the NFL. Being blanked by the Dolphins.

  743. Mord Says:

    Who is available to be hired as DC? Seriously. I don’t know what’s nature and what’s nurture with this bunch.

  744. Capt. Blighe Says:

    I hear that QB from Oregon is Good

  745. Darin Says:

    Lmao. Cant believe some guys are saying some of the players are not doing their jobs. Tbey are doing what they are told. They are right where smitty wants them. Yet someone tbinks its a good idea for this Ahole to coach the defense. Bucs lose today this is the last game Ill watch until smitty is fired. Wont sell tix either. Empty seats. No more of my money for this horse sh$t! Write another article Joe!!

  746. Moreon Says:

    Go Fins

  747. Ndog Says:

    In other news the Bears are being shutout at Miami at the half.

  748. SKBucsFan Says:

    the NFL already had a player quit at halftime, let’s see a coach get fired at halftime. The Glazers might as well get some free press and go down in history with a move that will be talked about for the rest of the season.

  749. Wausa Says:

    most of the defensive issues is blown or soft coverage.
    Please get rid of the guy in charge of it

  750. Seminole Bill Says:

    Communication? The defensive coaches have had over a week to prepare for this game and the players still can’t get themselves in the right position on the field?

  751. Resurrection of Fitz Says:

    Dusty I think we’re going 3-13.

  752. Capt. Blighe Says:

    Wow Grimes looks old

  753. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Mitchell Trubisky has been slammed back to earth I see.

    All that stupid talk about his arm sleeve 2 weeks ago, no it’s was the fact that he played against Mike Smith.

  754. ChanEpic Says:

    Darin I’m with you 100%

  755. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Coaching and a combination of THE absolute worst personnel moves in NFL history get you this crap show in the ATL today….licht is the worst nfl gm in football and it is not even close

  756. slemak Says:

    You had 2 weeks to clean up the slop. 2 weeks to study film and create change.
    2 weeks to have that sour taste in your mouth. You would think they would come out pissed off. Angry. Ready to unleash hell. But no. The team is dejected. There is no spark. No emotion. All I see is frustration. They need to come out in 2nd half out pissed off and get a stop. If ATL gets a TD on opening drive then it is game over and on pace for another 48 pt game. Jameis has a bit of rust as expected. Anyone notice how his throws aren’t leading the receivers? Frustrating being a Bucs fan right now. If the D doesn’t slow them down just a bit then it is time to just cut bait with Smith and see if someone else can spark a change to try and salvage this season.

  757. Team_With_No_Defense Says:

    Can the Bucs just get rid of defensive coach Smith and player Ryan Smith.

  758. Conte Piscatelli Says:

    So I guess it’s time to start discussing our high first round pick, and who we might be able to con into taking our head coaching position. Any thoughts?

  759. Wausa Says:

    That’s not surprising about the Bears being shut out.

    Also in other news Derwin James is playing at an all pro level.
    Bucs need to hire a defensive head coach but try to keep Monken as Offensive Coordinator.

  760. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    I’ve been hearing about communion breakdowns since 2016…GTFO here Dirk and Mike you clowns.

  761. Zwak Says:

    Relax you all know this caching staff is well known for making those HALFTIME ADJUSTMENTS!!

  762. TBTemojin Says:

    This is what we get coming off of a bye week???? This coaching staff is a joke….. SMH!! defense is unwatchable!!

  763. ChanEpic Says:

    @thetruth – Rex Ryan, Raheem, the ghost of Tom Landy, Carrot top. Anyone could do better than this.

  764. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    Sorry Wausa, I have very good eyesight and I have to say, Mike Smith is just the tip of the iceberg on this defense, they flat out stink!

  765. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    McCoy is a “Coach KILLA”

  766. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Resurrection of Fitz, you may be right and I was all for bringing in jameis because he has the physical tools and joe has told everyone how great he is……..im sorry he is not that good and you can see that on the field, he has missed djax for 2 years now, enough is enough put fitzmagic in, the guy at least kept it entertaining

  767. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Raheem anyone?

  768. SKBucsFan Says:

    Winston never leads the receivers. He has always been awful at that.

  769. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Hey….. It’s a Buc’s life. 😂😂😂😂

  770. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I’m thinking Jim Schwartz from Philthydelphia.

  771. denjoe Says:

    Hey dirk , do you have jack Delrio’s number no reason.

  772. Wesley Says:

    A lot of this is on Licht as well

  773. SKBucsFan Says:

    RFLMAO Zwak. Best comment today!

  774. denjoe Says:

    Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:
    October 14th, 2018 at 2:39 pm
    I’m thinking Jim Schwartz from Philthydelphia.


  775. Season Is Over Says:

    I’m ready for Fitz again. This is the same old Winston. He will have his second pick at a crucial time in the second half. Don’t forget about the one Atlanta dropped in the endzone.

  776. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Hilarious some of you actually thought the Bucs had a chance.

    If you picked the Bucs to win this game you should be banned from commenting

  777. Anonymous Says:

    Get that Quarterback out of the game….. Fire the GM and the Bucs Scouting personnel department they have zero talent in the secondary and do not deserve to be in the NFL …. Atlanta will put up 50 points on us and have a quarterback that does not have the consistent talent to start for any team in the NFL. Awful move by the owners to give this head coach grace, and allow him to return this season.

  778. Dooshlarue Says:


  779. JimmyJack Says:

    We need a interm HC. This guy has no idea what he is doing. And I’ll settle for a player-coach(JPP) on defense.

    This is absolutely the worst team I’ve ever witnessed. Chris Spielman with the best call I’ve heard all year……….”the Bucs play scared”

    Dirk’s defense has, basically not stopped anybody in a month. Not a bad Steeler team, not Mitch Trubisky, not the QB he coached for years(Ryan).

    There’s no chance I’ll believe they come out of the half and magically learn how to cover and tackle. I’ll gladly eat my words but Dirk needs to git. We are going down today and the Browns will attack us the same way Dirks defense has been attacked and destroyed with over the past two years. Dirk’s team has no direction, face or identity. I want him gone before next week so I can actually expect anything from this team.

  780. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ol raheem could just walk across the field and help out his ol guys, maybe gmc would be more relaxed, fire up a heater at half time drink a cold beer and come out ready to roll youngry style

  781. RustyRhinos Says:

    Hey Moreon refresh your screen it will reload new post, and if you are at the last post all newer ones will be below.

  782. Season Is Over Says:

    Fitzpatrick is the only QB that can win with this defense.

  783. Wesley Says:

    The funny thing is the Falcons suck.

  784. Tackleblockwin Says:

    I know a lot are blaming Mike Smith, and I agree. But, we have a lot of players on D that are doing the same nonsense every week. Why do our safeties drop 7 yards behind the first down marker on 3d and long? Why do our CBs show press, and then back off 7 yards or more every pass play? Why do our LBs continue to take bad angles. We have veteran LBs that should not be playing this poorly against opposing talent they played against and studied for a few years. Why is our Dline unable to get pressure against a below average Falcon oline?

  785. Bucs14 Says:

    Bring back Schiano and make this $hit show complete!

  786. denjoe Says:

    The confidence polls results on here are always a joke.

  787. Trench War Says:

    I would love to see Jameis quick strike. That drive for the last TD he used a lot of the clock. We need possessions and hope they make mistakes but if we’re helping them by eating up the clock we won’t have enough time.

  788. Patrick Says:

    Winston is playing “ok.” But when are the interceptions going to STOP?

  789. shanemarco Says:

    Next week Cleveland passes us the baton…we will officially be the biggest joke in the NFL.

  790. Dooshlarue Says:

    I just put my Fitzmagic/Bucco Bruce T-shirt on.
    I got it from Gulfster dot com.
    Maybe it works magic!

  791. JimmyJack Says:

    Would not be resorting to chatting about this team. All I want to do is watch the game and enjoy my Sunday. But this team is not entertaining at all. They are nothing but a disgrace and embarrassment. I can’t even invite my buddies over to watch the team anymore cuz it’s just too darn embarrassing

  792. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Spielman is on point with his analysis. Great announcer. Very smart dude.

  793. FreeTheSecretWeapon Says:

    Curious if Smith even goes to the locker room at half… Whoever gets in the players face at half should be interim DC

  794. Bucsfan77 Says:

    I’m not being optimistic I highly doubt we will do anything this year, BUT there is still a lot of the season left to play. Maybe all our opponents will catch the flu every week we play them or a crazy bucks fan will poison the other team each weekend

  795. Trench War Says:


    you should be banned for being a bad fan

  796. JimmyJack Says:

    Patrick the interception was as good as a punt.

  797. unbelievable Says:

    Maybe we can hire Spielman to coach our defense.

  798. Dooshlarue Says:

    Thanks again Gummy.

  799. Season Is Over Says:

    McPloy just Bakerred the line.

  800. Bucs14 Says:

    Offside Ice Cream Man!

  801. Pete Says:

    There is no one on this defense worth keeping, except JPP. All of them need to go. No swarm tackling. Missed assignment. Horrid. The worst defense in team history and that’s saying something.

  802. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Id go all in on Nick Saban, what else does he need to do in bama…he will win another Natty this year the only thing he has failed at is the NFL, he knows talent unlike jason gump and he is one of the best football coach’s in the world

  803. JimmyJack Says:

    I guess I’ll half watch the 2nd half now. Try to enjoy this BS

  804. unbelievable Says:

    Hell no to Nick Saban.

    He’ll quit the second one thing doesn’t go his way.

  805. Spicoli Says:

    How dare the dolphins defense make Trubisky look like the average QB he is…

  806. Easy Says:

    Holy hell we got a stop on 3rd down!!!

  807. Bculaw Says:

    Koetter with the play sheet for first time this year. Is he calling plays today?

  808. Bird Says:

    What was that ?

    3 and out. Forgot what those were called

  809. Wesley Says:

    Wow maybe he was fired at halftime.

  810. ERIC Says:

    Wow….. lets keep it up d

  811. Bucs14 Says:

    Did mike Smith get fired at half? We are blitzing. Who is calling the D?

  812. k_bassuka Says:

    Good job D, but still fire Smith.

  813. unbelievable Says:

    Wow. Someone lit a fire under the defense during halftime.

    I guess Koetter did say something after all.

  814. theodore Says:

    Mike Smith forced a punt. Two years job security.

  815. Bucsfan77 Says:

    Lol did Buckner take over as DC at half

  816. cmurda Says:

    Why in the world is D Jax not returning the punt. Are you kidding me Dirk?

  817. Jarhead Says:


    I picked the Bucs to win!!

  818. lambchop Says:

    I think someone said fuq you Mike Smith, the players gonna choose their DC.

  819. Seminole Bill Says:

    Think about this; the NFL expects to put a team in London in the next few years, by relocation or expansion of the number of teams. Relocation? The Glazers have a major investment in London soccer. Think about it.

  820. Sweeptheleg Says:

    Gotta score here

  821. Swanee Says:

    Release JW, Fire HC, GM and Bucs scouting staff on Monday. Move an assistant up to take over for remainder of season. Release all starting secondary players and draft NFL caliber players. Falcons will most likely put up 40 points today and is unacceptable… Build for 2019 season, this season can not be recovered and will spiral down to a 5 or less win team.

  822. Bird Says:

    There we go!

  823. Jarhead Says:


    I picked the Bucs to win!! Go Bucs

  824. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Smith fired at the half?

  825. Wesley Says:

    Perfect throw.

  826. Big Z Says:

    Nice throw

  827. BuccoDav Says:

    Good throw, Jameis!

  828. k_bassuka Says:

    Lets go

  829. JabooBuc Says:

    This line just gets blown up

  830. Sweeptheleg Says:

    My god. Run up the middle ofcourse.

    Please Fire Koetter too

  831. Big Z Says:

    Let’s not forget our offensive line can’t run block

  832. JabooBuc Says:


  833. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Buckner is absolutely not a DC let him worrry about the terrible DL, you do realize the DC at arizona was an HC candidate for the zona HC job and hired as DC in NY and didnt take buckner for a reason, james bettcher is/was teh hottest coordinator in the league and left buckner behind that speaks volumes

  834. Season Is Over Says:

    Barber once again shows why he is not a number one back.

  835. cmurda Says:

    Way to go O Line. Idiots.

  836. Gobucs Says:

    Run up the middle then a penalty.

    Fire koetter and smith

  837. lambchop Says:

    Winston’s best pass to Hump of the day.

  838. Season Is Over Says:

    No one saw that interception coming.

  839. Wesley Says:


  840. JabooBuc Says:


  841. Gobucs Says:

    Good gracious

  842. Bird Says:

    Baghdad’s quarterback.

  843. Trench War Says:

    another bad throw

  844. Aaron Says:


  845. BuccoDav Says:

    should have been pass interference. dude never turned or made a play on the ball.

  846. Big Z Says:

    That’s what happens when you can’t run the ball on the 2-yard line no push from the offensive line shouldn’t even had to throw him the ball

  847. Doug Says:

    Why is Fitz on the bench?

  848. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Warm up the Fitz.

  849. Dooshlarue Says:

    Like I said….. God is good.

  850. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Bring back Fitzmagic.

  851. denjoe Says:

    what a play call trailing by two scores.

  852. ATrain Says:

    Throws into double coverage with Evans one in one in corner

    Well Wesley your thoughts

  853. SteveK Says:

    What just happened?

  854. cmurda Says:

    OK, Jameis doesn’t look to be the answer. Dumbass read. He’s garbage too.

  855. Trench War Says:

    I agree Bucco but still a bad throw

  856. Bucnut2 Says:

    There he is,America’s Turnover Machine!!!

  857. Matts17 Says:

    Why is he throwing that? God Winston is awful.

  858. Ndog Says:

    Just cannot make that throw.

  859. JabooBuc Says:

    That’s just a bad throw into coverage. Thanks America’s QB

  860. Dave Says:

    I am officially all on board to fire Mike Smith. This team has gone through 100 different DL combinations over the last several years. They have gone through a ton of DBs in the last few years.
    Individually a lot of these players have talent.
    It was the Lovie Smith gameplan and now the Mike Smith scheme.
    It is the scheme, of course some talent upgrade is always nice, but it is mostly scheme.

    I have never seen wide receivers running so open and they do it week after week against this defense.
    The corner backs are playing 7 to 10 yards off and then dropping a soon as the ball snacks. They’re giving a 12 yard cushion for the guy to do what the hell he wants.
    BSically almost every single pass between 5-15 yards is wide open.
    It is absolutely frustrating and a palling to watch play after play.

  861. unbelievable Says:

    Just can’t catch a break with this team.

  862. WeAreLost Says:


  863. Season Is Over Says:

    It will always be someone else’s fault with Winston. Fitz didn’t have the same issues because his passes were accurate and properly leading the receiver.

  864. Buc68 Says:

    Can’t believe PI was not called on that.

  865. Greg Says:

    Another throw into double coverage.

  866. SteveK Says:

    Blaming the play call is a cowardly thing to do. Hands down that was crappy decision making by the QB.

  867. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    desean didnt even run a route that play he just hung out wtf and horrible throw, trade jameis or let him go and run with fitz, jameis is doo doo….def would not draft a qb next year, the bucs need to wait for TUA

  868. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Fitz on the sideline like

    “Is THIS your quarterback?!!”

  869. Gobucs Says:


    Run up the middle. Then a penalty. Then an int.

    How? How can they be sooooo bad.

  870. Dooshlarue Says:

    Dear Jameis,
    It’s been real.

  871. bucs_1 Says:

    well its been real guys see you all next season hopefully new qb and coaching staff another top 3 pick YET AGAIN!!!!

  872. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Get Jameis out quickly. Need Fitz

  873. Wesley Says:

    Atrain- terrible

  874. Bucs14 Says:

    There goes Magoo trying to force the ball into the endzone.

  875. EA Says:

    Can’t even tun for a 2 freaking yard TD, and penalty, and then Interception.

  876. mark2001 Says:

    Flailing coach…flailing franchise….idiot owners. Enough said.

  877. lambchop Says:

    My goodness, can’t get a break. I need to see that in a different angle to figure out if that was a dumb throw.

  878. Tackleblockwin Says:

    If it was 3d down maybe I’d be ok with that force pass, but on 2nd down that is just nonsense.

  879. Resurrection of Fitz Says:


  880. D-Rome Says:

    I’m done with Jameis. I’ve seen enough. Why am I not surprised that throw and interception was made? He’s not the QB of the future and he doesn’t deserve to be the QB of the future. I don’t care if statistically he’s the best quarterback in franchise history. It just doesn’t matter. He’s not winning and he’s not leading this team anywhere. It’s time to move on.

  881. cmurda Says:

    PI hasn’t been called all game on obvious penalties. Why start now refs?

  882. Bucnut2 Says:

    Well said Bird

  883. BuccoDav Says:

    Yes, a foolish throw. too low.

  884. Thetruth Says:

    Humphries needed to score cause we auclnat 1st and goal. Spread them out and run off that

    No we line up in obvious run which we suck at and throw away a down and than fall apart

  885. Carrollwood Buc Fan Says:

    Another bad decision by Jameis

  886. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Vintage Jay Miss! Some good, lots bad and a guy who will never be better than mediocre.

  887. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    1st down @ the 2. Interception throwing into double coverage.

    Yep. Winston is back.

  888. Rob Says:

    The ATMwith 3 pucks(1 was dropped in the end zone)that was forced into double coverage. Predictable turnover machine. Go Bucs!

  889. Jarid Says:

    I’m waiting for all the Americas qb excuse givers to show up…guy is trash dood….admit it

  890. SteveK Says:

    No excuses for Jameis. That was a poor decision, 2 TD: 2 Turnovers.

    That will not win you many ball games.

  891. Bird Says:

    most giveaways behind bortles

    Yah. He is hall of famer.

  892. Biggun Says:

    I thought pass interference is when the defensive player is not looking back and all up in the grill of the receiver how to heck is anybody supposed to catch a ball with a defender in his chest

  893. jmarkbuc Says:

    why would you throw that ball into double coverage?

  894. Dooshlarue Says:

    Come on JW…… wow us with a spectacular fumble next possession.
    I know you can do it!

  895. mark2001 Says:

    Not a franchise QB kind of decision there.

  896. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston rode that fame but now is time to earn the respect. Crickets.

  897. Troy Says:

    They deserve to lose and anyone who says Winston should get an extension is nuts.

  898. Swanee Says:

    This coach will go down with JW and is to arrogant and proud to make a QB change or a Defensive coordinator change … don’t expect one

  899. Tackleblockwin Says:

    So what week should we start focusing on the draft and coaching changes?

  900. theodore Says:

    Online will be fine as soon as Donavan is resigned. We must do the same things over and over. Resign Kwon too.

  901. 2002WasALongTimeAgo Says:

    poor Adam! Does all the work, then is ignored for a walk in TD, because J threw it into triple coverage.

  902. Chris in WA Says:

    Chuck Pagano, Les Miles, Rex Ryan, who am I missing for DC?

  903. Biggun Says:

    on the replay could see the wreck reaching for his flag but decided not to pull it let the play Go

  904. lambchop Says:

    My goodness. That was a dumbass throw. He had Hump open. Jameis still sucks! Godwin was covered!

  905. Destinjohnny Says:

    Justin Evans again

  906. IsrBuc Says:

    Come on! He was good in preseason!! Joe said so

  907. Matts17 Says:

    Replay shows he had at least two better options. The guy can’t play consistent football period. He showed huge holes in his game in college but the Bucs looked the other way as they were desperate.

  908. EA Says:

    Closest defender to Julio was 15 yards away on a 6 yard play, this is absolutely brutal to watch.

  909. SteveK Says:

    No excuses at all.

  910. VivianCherry Says:

    Why is Koetter calling plays? I thought Monken was. Defense is horrible. Smith should be fired. Offensive line can’t get run game going. JW is too inconsistent.

  911. BuccoDav Says:

    Bucs14 Says:
    October 14th, 2018 at 2:56 pm
    There goes Magoo trying to force the ball into the endzone.

    Before Jameis was drafted, Joe praised his ability to throw into tight windows… the windows in the NFL might be a bit too tight for JW.

  912. NJBucsFan Says:

    Winston chest pounders?

  913. ATrain Says:

    Can we trade Winston and GMC for Mack

    Let see what griffin can do

  914. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    dont resign kwon either

  915. JabooBuc Says:

    Taking bets on converting this

  916. SteveK Says:

    Fitzpatrick would be getting shredded if he made those picks today. Where are the same critical fans? Protective of Jameis?

  917. k_bassuka Says:

    Watch them give up a long pass to 11

  918. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    I suppose no one noticed that Winston threw an interception before the 1st TD that was dropped.

  919. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Jameis = Vince Young

    And their careers will end the same as well.

  920. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Finally get a good defensive stand, and what happens? Another Jameis INT!

    I’m through with Winston! He doesn’t get it and he never will! We might as well lose the rest of the year, because the new head coach is going to want to draft another QB in the first round next year!

    America’s QB my *ss!

  921. JabooBuc Says:

    WTH!!! Finally

  922. IsrBuc Says:

    The ali marpet signing is yet another PR move by the bucs. Nothing but creating headlines after the blowout. What a terrible message to the locker room

  923. Wesley Says:

    Well better to lose out, get high draft pics, fire Licht, Smith and probably Dirk.

  924. Season Is Over Says:

    Paul hasn’t been corrupted by Smith yet.

  925. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    At least JPP came to play.

  926. Godeep66 Says:

    We want Fitz

  927. unbelievable Says:

    Bad decision cuz Hump was wide open.

    But that was not triple coverage.

    Can’t believe the defense is actually showing up in the 2nd half.

  928. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    nassib needs to play more he has done way more than vinny curry

  929. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Probably dirk?….

  930. Jordan L Says:

    I was wrong. James sucks.

  931. Biggun Says:

    Let’s play start over again how many times we got to go to the endzone come out empty-handed

  932. Bird Says:

    Not even looking down field. That’s not the coaches. That’s Jameis going thru reads or lack thereof. Check down charley. He looks like mike glennon.

    Desean Jackson is pissed

    Sorry guys. But not a believer in him. Not 100 mil Don’t think anything will change.

  933. Spicoli Says:

    Where has this Def been?

  934. cmurda Says:

    That JW pick was painful. The defense actually stepped it up there.

  935. brooks55hof Says:

    There’s your one sack for the day, now they can relax. #SLUMPBUSTERS

  936. Dirty Bucs Says:

    I’m just here today for the “Is Winston really worth it?” discussion…

    Just LOL @ him being an upgrade over Fitz.

  937. EA Says:

    Just like last season, the couple of times the defense had a decent game, offense sucked, against new England comes to mind. I’m not saying the defense has played well today but seems like it in the second half.

  938. Gobucs Says:

    Kwon is overrated. He isn’t that good.

  939. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    walkda plank great call, he is just a long line of crappy fsu qbs in the nfl starting with ej manuel….of course brad johnson is a god hahaha

  940. ATrain Says:

    That was double coverage

    Evans one on one

    Hump wide open

  941. Bucs14 Says:

    Again, did Mike Smith get canned at halftime? Who is calling these defences? We are actually stopping them.

  942. lambchop Says:

    Keep having the DL run stunts. They’re not winning vanilla rushes.

  943. Spicoli Says:

    All Jameis does is look down field….

  944. JimmyJack Says:

    1st and goal from the 2 yard line. Dirk has been here 4 years and still hasn’t figured out how to score on these short-yardage situations.

    Meanwhile Chris Spielman was bragging about his fullback work wow we got pennyweight Cameron brate on the field.

    We need a interm HC

  945. Cs2 Says:

    Jameis Winston is straight ass cheeks. His performance smells like them too. People still root for this garbage rapist?

  946. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go D! Extend JPP!

  947. Not there yet Says:

    Where are all these people who talk about how dominate Geraldine is? You don’t hear his name on game day or in the news feed. Monday thru Saturday we hear how unstoppable he is but make excuses for lack of stats on Sunday.

    Does anyone actually think Geraldine is the reason jpp gets sacks? Or is he just a good ball player

  948. DB55 Says:

    Lmk when Jameis throws 3 ints (including a pick 6) in 1 half.

  949. unbelievable Says:

    Fitz played 2 good games and then reverted back to his norm.

    Stop acting like he was playing lights out when he got benched.

  950. JimmyJack Says:

    Dirk got hired with the main reason being to devolope Winston……just sayin.

  951. Cs2 Says:

    Unbelievable, you’re a clown. He’s way better than Jameis

  952. WalkdaPlank Says:


    Fitz was no god but Jameis sure is the devil.

  953. ATrain Says:

    By the way did Fitz get benched for 2 Int

  954. Trench War Says:

    that was on Jameis

  955. unbelievable Says:

    I don’t understand why we don’t run out of spread formations and/or shotgun more often.

  956. Gobucs Says:

    Good job. O-line. Great job.

    If it isn’t one thing it’s another.

  957. Thetruth Says:

    Wish they play with urgency

  958. JabooBuc Says:

    Our RG is just horrible

  959. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    JW has been a turnover machine, even JW sycophants have to admit he is careless, even reckless.

  960. Bucnut2 Says:

    There’s our franchise QB

  961. Big Z Says:

    Again this is what happens when you don’t have a running game

  962. Gobucs Says:

    That was all the o-lines fault.


  963. EA Says:

    You wanna know why our offense was bad in the red zone last year?
    2 words, jameis Winston.

  964. Cold Cannons Says:

    Ouch… Jameis with another red zone fail.

  965. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Somehow, we are almost in this game. Jay Miss is due for either a really awkward fumble or interception though.

  966. mark2001 Says:

    Good point Jimmy. If Jameis doesn’t get there, Koetter has failed on every level.

  967. cmurda Says:

    This O Line is hot trash. JW doesn’t have a chance right there. BS crap playcalling in the red zone yet again.

  968. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    jason licht way to address the pathetic OL in offseason…….flipping 11 moe games of this crap, next week will be the BATTLE OF CLEVELAND who is the official clevalnd now

  969. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go D!

  970. NoTalentonDefense Says:

    …and yes, our offensive line is awful. I never understood the reluctance in TB to build a good offensive line.

  971. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Absolute failure….1st down running plays in the red zone…..fail every time….a wasted down….

    Is there a law we have to run on 1st down?

  972. Big Z Says:

    Where’s our number one pick today

  973. Dooshlarue Says:

    He a gun slanger yo…..

  974. ATrain Says:

    Winston has reverted in his first game back

  975. Season Is Over Says:

    Calling it now. An article from Joe pimping Barber’s 4.0 ypc average while not pointing out his ineffectiveness to control any part of the game to help the team.

  976. DB55 Says:

    Caleb Benenoch should be burned at the stake

  977. Trench War Says:

    If Fitz was playing this game what would probably be the score? ..tied?

  978. Easy Says:

    Mature Jameis not making a boneheaded play and taking the sack.

  979. SteveK Says:

    How come Fitz lit up better defenses, CMurda?

    Winston had two weeks to prepare for this game and we should be doing better.

    TD:Turnover: 2:2- not a winning formula.

  980. IsrBuc Says:

    Ali marpet signing was nothing but PR. Swithch the headlines after Chicago. What a terrible message to the locker room

  981. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Not gonna win this with FGs. Jameis is horrible. America’s Turnover Machine is back. 20M for what?

  982. JabooBuc Says:

    Needed 7 there. No way we hold them again

  983. Tackleblockwin Says:

    D needs to get a TO. Maybe JPP can get a strip sack fumble?

  984. Dirty Bucs Says:

    At least it’s still a one score game.

  985. unbelievable Says:

    There’s just no consistency from any position on this team besides the tight ends and receivers.

    None. So frustrating to watch. That sack was on Jameis.

  986. SteveK Says:

    Can Jameis hit DJax today, please?

  987. Pancaker64 Says:

    Fitz might not but the future…

    and Jamies sure ain’t the present.

  988. ATrain Says:

    Big Z

    Barber is Averaging 5 yrds

    This is what happens when your QB throws INT in endZone

  989. Bird Says:

    Now its poor coaching that we can’t get a td

    You guys are funny.

    Same coaching in first 3 games when we were putting up 40

  990. SteveK Says:

    Agreed. Jameis needed to get rid of it. And he didn’t. Glad he didn’t force it and just ate the sack. Still a bad play, but not a boneheaded one.

  991. SteveK Says:

    Fitz has no issues lighting it up?

  992. Season Is Over Says:

    Did that look easy for Coleman or what?

  993. lambchop Says:


    Fitz played well in the Pitt game. 2 out 3 INTs were not his fault unlike the pics that Winston is throwing. Fitz had one REALLY bad pick-6 which was inexcusable. But, if Winston gets a whole season to suck, why not give Fitz a chance to get that Fitzmagic back? He played WAY better in those first 2 games, which nobody saw coming, which are 2 of the best games by a Buc QB EVER. E V E R. EEEEEVVVVVVEEEEERRRRR. E V E R!! Let it sink in.

  994. Capt. Blighe Says:

    This D needs a TO

  995. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    signing kwon cements jason gumps ineptitude

  996. Trench War Says:

    I have Evans on my fantasy team and I only have 31 yards. His worst game yet. I can’t figure out why? ..hmmm

  997. Season Is Over Says:

    Fitzpatrick would have smoked this defense but Winston always loses the first half where the modern NFL game is won.

  998. Gobucs Says:

    Good job Defense.

    Gotta find a way to score a TD

  999. Bucs14 Says:

    Mike Smith must have been fired. Where has D been?

  1000. JabooBuc Says:

    So…defense is actually playing well this half thus far. JW???

  1001. SteveK Says:

    Let’s see Jameis our up a TD here. We need to get it going right here, right now.

  1002. Dirty Bucs Says:

    1st and goal at the 2, and we get stuffed, false start, throw a pick. Game should be tied.

  1003. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Ridley out, Sanu out. All we need is Julio to go out and we have a chance lol.

  1004. Bird Says:

    Nice run

  1005. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Hahahaha Bucs 14

  1006. Season Is Over Says:

    Mr. Magoo throwing two picks and getting major garbage yards to be better than Peyton Manning? Where have I seen this before?

  1007. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    I want to say fire Mike Smith : (

  1008. Geno Says:

    Ha Ha good call run on 1st down

  1009. unbelievable Says:

    Lamb chop I agree he played great those first 2 games but he came back to earth against a very bad Pittsburg defense.

    Maybe we can let jameis play a single whole game and then evaluate?

  1010. Spicoli Says:

    2002 Bucs Def on the field? What is going on, are we getting punked

  1011. ATrain Says:

    Ok Defense is Turnes On

    Run Game

    Where is Winston

  1012. SteveK Says:

    Go Winston!

  1013. Frank Pillow Says:

    Dirk can’t possibly trust Jaboo at this point. His regression into Dilfer is nearly complete.

  1014. Geno Says:

    Pitts defense been solid last three games and was solid last year

  1015. lambchop Says:

    Peyton Barber is not really THAT good, it’s just that the Falcon’s run D is really THAT bad.

  1016. ATrain Says:

    I think some of the receivers Godwin Evans
    Quit on Fitz 3rd game to get Winston back

  1017. SteveK Says:


    Fitz had a monster 2nd half against Pitt.

    Just saying, three out of four games the dude led us to some points.

  1018. Jarhead Says:

    The Jameis hate is real….y’all need to find another team to root for!

  1019. Dooshlarue Says:

    GMC be having fun now.
    Oh goody!!!

  1020. ATrain Says:

    Jarhead you take Winston and Bothnof y’all find another team

  1021. Trench War Says:

    stopped no YAC

  1022. Dooshlarue Says:

    The Winston Wind Up.

  1023. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Love spielman calling GMC a clown, what a loser a$$ clown, just as long as he is having fun and gets ice cream after the game the score dont matter

  1024. Jarhead Says:

    Jameis first game Back as a starter.

  1025. Dooshlarue Says:

    Go Barber!

  1026. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Barber earning that starting spot he has today.

  1027. unbelievable Says:

    SteveK so I just want to know why when Jameis does that it’s just “meaningless garbage time stats” but when Fitz does it he gets celebrated for it?

    I just want my team to win. I really don’t care who the QB is. Jameis has always seemed to have more upside, but this is the year he has to take the next step. Otherwise it’s time to move on.

  1028. SteveK Says:

    There’s DJax! Woo!

  1029. Destinjohnny Says:

    Fitz is better then 3

  1030. Dooshlarue Says:

    Off target and thank your receivers JW

  1031. SteveK Says:


    Couldn’t agree more! No exucuses!

    Go Barber!

  1032. Jarhead Says:

    ATrain I’m here to stay, just like Jameis Winston!!!

  1033. Season Is Over Says:

    You can see the look of disappointment on the receiver’s faces even after receptions. They know they are headed to IR.

  1034. Gobucs Says:

    Everyone knew that was gonna be a run play

  1035. ATrain Says:

    Go to the screen

    Hump make all’s first down

  1036. Easy Says:

    Please take Benecoch out of the game.

  1037. SteveK Says:

    Bad spot to Evans.

  1038. JabooBuc Says:

    RGis a swinging door

  1039. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    JarHead winstn sucks as does the entire team

  1040. Gobucs Says:

    Benenoch sucks as s

  1041. Dooshlarue Says:

    Nice…. Go Godwin!

  1042. Bucs14 Says:

    Let’s go Bucs!

  1043. Geno Says:

    good play call and design

  1044. ATrain Says:

    Godwin caught it

    Wish he would have done that for Fitz we would be 3-1

  1045. JabooBuc Says:

    Not kidding. They absolutely need to claim a RG stat

  1046. WeAreLost Says:

    What the hell happened in the locker room at half?

  1047. k_bassuka Says:

    Yes Sir!!! One more

  1048. Season Is Over Says:

    Way to give your team a chance Mr. Magoo. Forgot your glasses?

  1049. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Missing extra points hurts, boys.

  1050. unbelievable Says:

    Benenoch is straight garbage.

    Nice throw and catch there. Great drive from Winston.

  1051. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Thank goodness finally a score now tie it up

  1052. SteveK Says:

    Nice TD!

  1053. ATrain Says:

    Jarhead I bet you celebrate Average Too

  1054. Destinjohnny Says:

    Evans was wide wide wife open
    It’s like watching Jalen hurts

  1055. Big Z Says:

    Nice job kicker had made the first extra point we wouldn’t be in this situation

  1056. Destinjohnny Says:

    We have more weapons at wideout then any team

  1057. unbelievable Says:

    What an awful play call.

    You run that with a tight end so they can seak out. Not with the running back who will Obviously be covered

  1058. Spicoli Says:

    If only we didn’t have those couple of turnovers on the ATL side of the field. Keep up the stellar play Bucs!!!

  1059. cmurda Says:

    O Line fails on 2 pt conversion. That’s BS. They need to frigging step up when it matters.

  1060. SB Says:

    Destinjohnny Says:
    October 14th, 2018 at 3:28 pm
    We have more weapons at wideout then any team

    That is why we should win most games.

  1061. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Don’t worry guys, I’m calling it now. Atlanta drives down the field and scores a FG to push it to the Bucs needing a touchdown, then with a few minutes left in the game Koetter is gonna decide to kick a FG instead of go for it on 4th down and the offense won’t see the field again.

  1062. Gobucs Says:

    That was a bad play call.

    Koetter is terrible

  1063. unbelievable Says:

    *sneak out

  1064. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    That TD keeps my TV on and avoiding yard work. Need that D to step up I like the attitude change on both sides of the ball. Kickers are missing xps all over the league so let’s look ahead. Need another stop fellas.

  1065. Season Is Over Says:

    Spicoli means two interceptions in the endzone.

  1066. Spicoli Says:

    Jameis didn’t have time to hit evans under pressure.

  1067. SB Says:

    Bennonoch and Dotson are costing us ALOT!!!

  1068. JG Says:

    Been a knock yeah the right guard is the worst in the NFL he has cost us so many points today Camplay if he still in there

  1069. lambchop Says:

    Caleb Benenoch is hot garbage.

  1070. Jorhead Says:

    I am here to stay just like Dirk Koetter!!!

  1071. Season Is Over Says:

    Jones wide open. No worries. All part of the plan.

  1072. kma119 Says:

    We all know Fitzpatrick would be winning this game right now. This is easily the worst defense we’ve played against all year, our running game is better than it has been most of the season. I’m sure if we lose, the Jameis Justifiers will have a list of reasons (excuses) that don’t include Winston.

  1073. Geno Says:

    It looks like the 2 point play was called to get number 98 of defense to suck in.

    If he does it is a Jameis run vs pass option to Jones with high probability of success. Thought it was a solid design.

  1074. jughead Says:

    nice push off by Julio

  1075. Dooshlarue Says:

    Why didn’t LVD get his freaking hands up?

  1076. Easy Says:

    Falcons have Julio Jones as the only threat at WR and you still have MJ “2 steps behind” Stewart in coverage.

  1077. Jarhead Says:

    The only receiver on the field to defend and he beats us for a long pass

  1078. Phillybuc Says:

    McCoy injured from dancing on sidelines?

  1079. Season Is Over Says:

    The I’m not part of this injuries are starting?

  1080. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    hmmmmm ryan smith is the next bug thing> hahahahah dude played good against crappy eagle wrs ryan smith is another bad licht draft pick

    wtf was grimes doing

  1081. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith’s atrocious defense continues. That was as obvious a PI on the offense as it gets. No call again. That’s 3 PI’s that should have been called against ATL. Refs are a joke.

  1082. Jorhead Says:

    My brother jarhead is just a hater. Please ignore his trolls

  1083. unbelievable Says:

    Of course the refs let Julio get away with offensive PI

  1084. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    Big stop boys… Let’s go!!!

  1085. Trench War Says:

    the statue runs for 1st down smh

  1086. Easy Says:

    Lol slow a$$ Matt Ryan getting a first down

  1087. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    big stop?

  1088. Bucs14 Says:

    Looks like Cancer93 had too much ice cream at halftime.

  1089. ATrain Says:

    GMC out

    Winston almost got us back in it
    Until GMC got hurt

    Excuse number one

  1090. unbelievable Says:

    Just unbelievable.

    Who the f@ck is Hoams? He’s terrible.

  1091. cmurda Says:

    Eff Mike Smith and this defense. This Front 7 for us sucks. LVD and Kwon have regressed. How the eff do you let Ryan just slowly walk for a first down.

  1092. Dooshlarue Says:

    I hope Gummy’s calf injury doesn’t affect his dancing….

  1093. RustyRhinos Says:

    Coach Smith calling plays again?

  1094. Gobucs Says:

    Vita Vea is useless.

  1095. unbelievable Says:

    Matt Ryan picks up yardage with his feet against us every single time we play them. It’s pathetic.

  1096. Season Is Over Says:

    Is anyone else having deja vu?

  1097. cmurda Says:

    No change in thought process. Mike Smith has to get canned. The entire defense is clueless.

  1098. unbelievable Says:

    Major holding by Julio again. No call.

  1099. SteveK Says:

    Come on D!

  1100. Tackleblockwin Says:

    ATL scrub receivers get open vs our garbage pass D.

  1101. Rojas Says:

    Well we can always draft Ed Oliver

  1102. RustyRhinos Says:

    Our Defense looked much better showing pressure

  1103. JabooBuc Says:

    TE beats our CB in 1:1 like it’s nothing

  1104. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ryan smith hahahah….gmc hurt dancing on sideline did that really happen

  1105. Gobucs Says:

    Vita Vea was a terrible pick. His fat as s is getting pushed around.

  1106. IsrBuc Says:

    Jw put us in position to win

  1107. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    An elbow to the head…LMAO! You CANT make this stuff up. Who’s elbow was it, Dusty Rhodes?

  1108. Ndog Says:

    Gosh this defense is weak.

  1109. cmurda Says:

    This is the TD that has to end Mike Smith. You can’t play crap defense for the first half. Play decent a few drives and again get owned. I’m done with Dirk and Mike Smith

  1110. Gobucs Says:

    Left him wide open. Game over.

  1111. Buc Neckid Says:

    too easy

  1112. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    SOB – Same Ole Bucs!

  1113. Dooshlarue Says:

    Dam that train horn crap is annoying

  1114. SteveK Says:

    Let’s get a turnover

  1115. Easy Says:

    Well I refuse to watch another Bucs game until Mike Smith gets fired. I’m done

  1116. mark2001 Says:

    Just good enough to break your heart.

  1117. SteveK Says:


  1118. bucs_1 Says:

    jesus i love top 3 picks whats that 15 years in a row now?

  1119. Jarhead Says:

    Defense is terrible. How is communication still an issue?

  1120. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Yup, Kwon and David no idea what they doing.

  1121. Buc Neckid Says:

    Kwon and L.David have Miscommunication?!?!
    They have played together longer than anybody on the field.

  1122. cmurda Says:

    Mike Smith. Good guy. Laughable D Coord.

  1123. k_bassuka Says:

    And when you think they are playing well, the non-D strikes again.

  1124. RustyRhinos Says:

    What a joke our defensive game plan is.

  1125. Dooshlarue Says:

    Remember Jameis lovers….. this is where he puts his team on his back…….
    and then fumbles.

  1126. SteveK Says:

    Can’t win with interceptions in the end zone. Just can’t. Gotta not turn it over.

  1127. unbelievable Says:

    Wide open. Shocking.

    Hey at least the defense played good for 1 quarter. Is that an improvement?

  1128. ATrain Says:

    Winston would have won this if we had a defense


    Knew it was coming

  1129. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Wait til next year. Clean house and play for high pick

  1130. Bucs14 Says:

    Ballgame. Look for a Magoo forced throw and a pick. Where have we seen this before?

  1131. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    the LBs i mean wtf just let the guy run open, this is just terrible, time for a jaboo int to seal the game

  1132. Ndog Says:

    We must have dumbest players in the world.

  1133. Rojas Says:

    Kwon Sucks.. so overrated.

  1134. Buc Neckid Says:

    So much for that Contract

  1135. Gobucs Says:


    Stfu don’t try this crap. “Jw put us in position to win”. BS. He had a pick in the end zone stupid. Another within the 5 yard line and another that should’ve been a pick. What an idiot

  1136. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    With all the glowing things written about Vita Vea, all I see is him being handled easily one on one.

  1137. Colonel Angus Says:

    Didn’t see that coming, standard Bucs loss right here. Yet we keep watching

  1138. JabooBuc Says:

    IsrBuc: JW is one of the reasons we will lose this game

  1139. SteveK Says:

    Come on Jameis! Get another TD!

    We need a quick score.

  1140. cmurda Says:

    The funniest thing about this scheme is any opposing Off Coord knows what to do against our extremely predictable defense, yet our extremely predictable defense doesn’t know the defensive calls. Ummmm, ok.

  1141. Bucnut2 Says:

    Winston- the “franchise QB” if you want a losing record!

  1142. bucs_1 Says:

    peaople need to wake the f@ck up YOU WANT CHANGE? DONT GO TO ANY F@CKING GAMES WHEN THEY PLAY AT HOME SIMPLE!!!!!!!!!!!

  1143. Jarhead Says:

    RustyRhinos, I agree. Why did we stop blitzing?

  1144. IsrBuc Says:

    Koetter is ultra conservative and should pay the price for his decisions. The gamble on jw and letting mike smith continue are on him. He cant face the team. He must go now.

  1145. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Will the Bucs defense start dancing on the sideline again after that? Freaking homos

  1146. Season Is Over Says:

    Defense sucks. Winston throwing for 300 yards and a picks in futile 4th quarter comeback. No running game. Nothing ever changes. It is like the Buc script the NFL wants us to follow.

  1147. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go Jameis! Quick score, and give the D three timeouts and the 2 min warning to get it back.

  1148. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Fire Koetter, fire Smith…

  1149. ATrain Says:

    Jamies shows promise

    Joes Article for tomorrow

    ATrains article


  1150. Wesley Says:

    Yet another wasted Sunday, i’m done until Smith gets fired. Time to move onto hockey season.

  1151. SteveK Says:

    We need a quick score Jameis! Come on 3!

  1152. rick Says:

    Buc Neckid

    Hey is that you in the thumbnail? I see that guy everywhere…

  1153. Troy Says:

    We can’t stop Matt Ryan from running for 12 yards on a scramble. Pathetic. Winners get stops when they need them. LOSERS HAVE A DEFENSE THAT ALLOWS MATT RYAN TO LOOK LIKE MIKE VICK. For the love of God fire this entire staff.

  1154. JabooBuc Says:

    Can we hurry please

  1155. Season Is Over Says:

    Unable to move the ball down the field when you need it.

  1156. Gobucs Says:

    Vita Vea is not good. Getting pushed around all day.

    He’s fat and lazy and a totally wasted pick.

  1157. Season Is Over Says:

    He has no confidence in his deep ball or he can’t see the receivers.

  1158. SteveK Says:

    Why did that play take 20’seconds ?

  1159. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    LOVE the sense of urgency

  1160. Destinjohnny Says:

    Can we win a few games with 3.. yes
    A championship??? Never

  1161. Rojas Says:

    By the way Derwin James has another sack today.. meanwhile Vea Is doing a GMC no show in today’s game.

  1162. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Pad the stats Jay Miss, but it will be yet another “L”.

  1163. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    Do the joes actually know talent or are they just regurguattaing what ol dumb licht tells them, because this team is bad

  1164. Gobucs Says:

    Why doesn’t he throw the ball down the field. Tired of these 10-15 yard passes. We need a quick score. Not Dink and dunk.

  1165. JabooBuc Says:


  1166. ATrain Says:

    Because he CANT

  1167. Gobucs Says:

    HE HAD HIM OPEN!!!!!!!

    My god Winston make a damn throw

  1168. Bucnut2 Says:

    There’s that GREAT Winston deep ball

  1169. Season Is Over Says:

    He throws blindly. Jackson knows it.

  1170. Bird Says:


  1171. Bucs14 Says:

    Did Djax quit on that?

  1172. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    DJax open deep and the famous Winston accuracy on display for all to see and some to ignore.

  1173. Dooshlarue Says:

    Nice hussle Godwin.

  1174. SteveK Says:

    DJax was open too! Man he’s fast!

  1175. Buc Neckid Says:

    Thumbnail is Buc Nasty (I believe)
    Buc’s Fan in Madden

  1176. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Jay Miss should have 5 pics today.

  1177. Bucnut2 Says:

    Should have been a 3rd Winston pick. The TO machine!!!

  1178. Spicoli Says:

    DJax couldn’t have done for that ball?

  1179. Dooshlarue Says:

    Thrown behind him too

  1180. SteveK Says:

    No quit from DJax!

    No touch from Winston. Could’ve put some air under it and not fired a pitch to the spot.

  1181. Gobucs Says:

    Winston just can not make a deep throw

  1182. IsrBuc Says:

    Garbage time stats throwing to the middle of.the.field killing clock. So stupid

  1183. cmurda Says:

    The only smart thing the Glazers did in recent history was not extending JW yet. He can’t miss D Jax. Can’t.

  1184. Spicoli Says:


  1185. unbelievable Says:

    The officiating is so goddamn bad.

    Every f@ckong week we gotta play against the refs too.

    Nice awareness from Godwin.

  1186. rick Says:

    Nice, that dudes awesome.

  1187. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Godwin deserves better than this train wreck

  1188. JabooBuc Says:

    Jw’s best throw of the day. Trident pushed DJax off his route Andy. It should have been called PI

  1189. SteveK Says:

    Need a score here ASAP.

    Go Bucs!

  1190. Gobucs Says:

    Yea you morons ofcourse blame Djax. You’re all stupid. That was all Winston’s fault.

  1191. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Jameis over 300 yards. Most in garbage time…AGAIN

  1192. Bucsfan77 Says:

    These refs are ALMOST as bad as our defense

  1193. ATrain Says:

    Hey Jarhead where are you

    Please Defend that crap throw

  1194. SteveK Says:

    That play to Jackson was there too.

    Winston threw to a spot and didn’t lead Jackson open.

  1195. lambchop Says:

    Jameis gonna be Jameis. Overthrow DJax and force a throw to Brate. If Jameis wasn’t bailed out as much as he is by his WRs with all the inaccurate passes, he’d have the record for giveaways long ago. Take that to the bank!

  1196. ATrain Says:

    I will be here with Him


    Just like a Browns fan

    Must like GMC the check casher

    Well we r here

  1197. Season Is Over Says:

    Fitz would have five plus TDs. This is amateur hour.

  1198. bucs_1 Says:


  1199. Bruce Says:

    DJ didn’t even try to catch that he is an NFL player right dive for it

  1200. Bucball3r813 Says:

    To all who are saying they refuse to watch/attend Bucs games going forward….
    The Glazers DONT CARE. They are perfectly content making their share of the TV contracts and selling beer to opposing fans at RayJay. It’s laughable that you think they care for even a moment. I doubt they’re even watching the game, they care more about making the stadium comfortable for the other 31 teams, so WE can go to the games and get heckled in our home stadium. The next renovations will be painting the end zones for the browns next week.

  1201. unbelievable Says:

    Jackson got mugged by the DB on that route which disrupted the timing. Should have been PI or holding.

    That throw to Brate was forced though, and Winston got lucky.

  1202. SteveK Says:


    DJax got free. And Winston fired to a spot not to lead his man open. He overthrew it.

  1203. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    you get a decent qb like foles or bortles or some average qb and this team lights up the scoreboard

  1204. Buc Neckid Says:

    Two Crappy Defenses

  1205. SteveK Says:

    Go Bucs!

    Score here!

  1206. unbelievable Says:

    My god some of you are such morons.

    Being down by 2 points, or 9 points, is not garbage time.

  1207. lambchop Says:

    BTW, Benenoch is out. Evan Smith in. Juice is a man among boys!

  1208. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Thanks for missing the first extra point, Catanmisso

  1209. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go Defense!

  1210. Bucs14 Says:

    Man my hope is rising. Can we do this?

  1211. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Here’s where we see if our defense can reach down and show some heart.

  1212. k_bassuka Says:

    One more stop non-D!!

  1213. Biggun Says:

    Jameis Winston makes every damn receiver work for the catch he is always just off a little for a lot

  1214. ATrain Says:

    We would be leading if Winston doesn’t throw an INT in endOne and we get 3

  1215. lambchop Says:

    Thanks Catanzaro. This game should be tied!

  1216. Gobucs Says:

    If this team had decent coaches and a decent defense they could be in playoffs.

  1217. unbelievable Says:

    Can we force another 3 and out?

    Cmon defense!

  1218. Rod Munch Says:

    Does Dirk the coward onside kick?

    Nope, because cowards punt and kick the ball away.

    Game is over, no chance the Bucs make a stop, NONE.

  1219. JabooBuc Says:

    SteveK: watch it again. He did lead DJax. Trufant pushes him off his route

  1220. RustyRhinos Says:

    Defense needs to step up

  1221. Rojas Says:

    Analyst even said DJax was mugged on the play.. should of been a PI would of been a TD if he wasn’t bumped.

  1222. Swanee Says:

    How is Julio that wide open. DBs are a joke

  1223. ChanEpic Says:

    Ok Jameis is giving those of us who support him pretty of fodder to call out buc fans who are almost JW haters. He’s done plenty in this game good

  1224. JimmyJack Says:

    Dirk didn’t go for 2 fire him now

  1225. Buc Neckid Says:

    Atlanta has NO Healthy Receivers except Julio
    Why is he ALWAAYS Open still???

  1226. Gobucs Says:

    If we lose by one cut the kicker immediately

  1227. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    the announcers are the best on “how is julio that wide open”

  1228. k_bassuka Says:

    Nope, it aint gonna happen.

  1229. JimmyJack Says:

    Dirk went for 2 before and it was a mistake. Interm HC now pls.

  1230. Rod Munch Says:

    Here we go, big third down, will the defense hold.


  1231. Not there yet Says:

    If every ball Fitz threw was so perfect why is he on the bench? 75% of you haters were here calling to bench Fitz against the Steelers and Chicago. The only qb’s in the nfl that have perfect passer ratings are the ones who go up against our defense. Stfu this is why no one listens to you, every other week your screaming for the backup qb morons. I’m guessing your the ones thinking we were going to the playoffs after 2 games

  1232. Oneilbucs Says:

    Jamies 4 td .

  1233. ATrain Says:


    I give all credit for standing by your man

  1234. JabooBuc Says:

    Can we please double up on JK?

  1235. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – With as much as I hate Dirk, going for 2 was the correct call since it makes it a 3 point game.

  1236. Wesley Says:

    Winston is far from great but he’s also not anywhere as bad as some of you make him out to be. The guy has potential but he has to be better in his accuracy and deep ball especially.

  1237. Rojas Says:

    Jesus what a hit by LVD

  1238. Swanee Says:

    That’s the game….

  1239. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, the refs give a completely BS spot on the play and the defense of course collapses.

  1240. Sydney Says:

    This is what a QB does.

    love the vaunted pass rush super good!!!

  1243. Rod Munch Says:

    There’s not even a review of the spot? LOL! That Home Depot money pays better than that Glazer cash.

  1244. Gobucs Says:

    @not there yet

    You moron. Fitz is on the bench cause dumbas s koettwr doesn wanna leave the defat pick on the bench lol. Are you that stupid?

  1245. cmurda Says:

    3rd and long. Crucial play and our sorry ass defense just gave it up.

  1246. Season Is Over Says:

    I wish Hargreaves would run onto the field and do one of his useless airplane celebrations.

  1247. cmurda Says:

    That’s a first down.

  1248. Swanee Says:

    DBs are awful. Wide open again.

  1249. JabooBuc Says:

    Ok, so you absolutely have to sell out on the run here.

  1250. unbelievable Says:

    Welp so much for that.

    Why didn’t Dirk challenge that? What a rookie mistake.

  1251. Rod Munch Says:

    Your offense puts up what should be 31 points and you have idiots talking about Winston? LOL! Do me a favor and get explosive diarrhea that proves to be fatal.

    God bless.

  1252. SteveK Says:

    Come on D

  1253. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    atlanta has no respect for the bucs rush nor dbs throwing the ball around

  1254. Swanee Says:

    Dirk had no timeouts to challenge. He wasted them early.

  1255. Gobucs Says:

    Vita Vea sucks

  1256. Season Is Over Says:

    Yes, we are talking about Winston. We have seen this game a million times before since he became QB.

    Back in the NFC South basement, home sweet home!

  1261. SteveK Says:

    Rod Munch,

    You’re a tool and a loser.

    What about the two interceptions in the end zone? That cost us 14 points, minimum of 6. A loss.

  1262. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Can the D make one stop that matters?

  1263. Roger4 Says:

    What a fun ride it was the first 3 weeks tho!!! Now back to the bottom we go!

  1264. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    rod did you watch the game? jameis is lucky to not have 3 ints, he cant hit a wide open d jax nor has he ever and that will never change, winston is not a franchise qb period

  1265. JabooBuc Says:

    Well Rod, he did throw a pic in the end zone on a really bad throw. Even if we get 3 there we possibly win this game

  1266. Gobucs Says:

    Let’s start making excuses for those picks inside the red zone.

    You homers are the most stupid fans in the league. Every single one of you homers are blind idiots

  1267. Troy Says:

    The D plays off on 2nd and 13. Why? Worst coaching ever.

  1268. Sydney Says:

    There is no and will be no pass rush again this season. You could see in the preseason it wasn’t there.

    The Buc’s should NOT be favored in a single the rest of the season and that includes the Browns.

  1269. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk didn’t onside kick, he relied on his defense.

    In the Pittsburgh game he punted, and relied on his defense.

    Dirk is an idiot.

  1270. Swanee Says:

    Must blitz here.

  1271. SteveK Says:

    Rod Munch,

    Why doesn’t Winston Win Games?

    How does Fitz have a 4-5 record as a starter and Winston is 18-28?

  1272. Simeon Says:

    In the Winston era this is the typical game; suck in first half, other team s far ahead and let’s up and let Bucs back in, but too little too late. Also, Ridley and sanu out makes our defense look a little better, let’s not start crowning Smith.

  1273. Troy Says:

    I’d like to Mayfield with this talent on offense

  1274. Season Is Over Says:

    Only Fitz can win with this Defense!!

    Hey Rod. Wins and Loses is all that count in the NFL

    Bucs win without 2 InT

  1280. JabooBuc Says:

    Wow. That’s some balls

  1281. Sydney Says:

    The kicker we didn’t want anymore.

  1282. Gobucs Says:

    Doesn’t matter really. Our kicker couldn’t make a game winner anyway. Still need a TD

  1283. Roger4 Says:

    Matt Bryant the guy Tampa let go…

  1284. Swanee Says:

    Great kicker. Bucs didn’t re-sign him.

  1285. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Koetter would have never had the balls to call for that field goal. He would have punted 100 times out of 100.

  1286. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    ridley not playing really hampered the falcons offense thsi week

  1287. Bucnut2 Says:

    Franchise QB’s lead their teams to wins now

  1288. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Wish we had Matt Bryant. Oh wait… we did.

  1289. Rod Munch Says:

    Meanwhile Dirk punts from the opponent 36…

  1290. Dooshlarue Says:

    Make me like you Jameis!

  1291. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    bryant old and done maybe grimes should follow

  1292. unbelievable Says:

    Damn Blanks wife is kinda hot for an old lady.

  1293. cmurda Says:

    LOL. Thanks Glazers and Dominic for getting rid of Bryant. He just beat us and Mike Smith should definitely be canned.

  1294. Bucs fan #7423 Says:


  1295. ATrain Says:


  1296. Swanee Says:

    That’s how terrible the past GMs have been to release Matt Bryant…

  1297. unbelievable Says:

    We really need someone better on kick returns.

    Rodgers just runs straight into the pile of defenders.

  1298. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    Bryant, a guy we could have kept all along hits from 58. Meanwhile we lose this game because our guys continue to miss extra points.

  1299. Swanee Says:

    Evans go out of bounds

  1300. ATrain Says:

    Go out of bounds

  1301. Gobucs Says:

    Stupid mike Evans should’ve went out of bounds

  1302. unbelievable Says:

    Wtf mike?? Get out of bounds!

  1303. Spicoli Says:

    Get out of bounds Mike!!!!

  1304. unbelievable Says:

    Terrible decision by Evans

  1305. Season Is Over Says:

    Winston is scared to go downfield.

  1306. Rod Munch Says:

    WTF was that?!?

  1307. Season Is Over Says:

    This team is a circus full of clowns.

  1308. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That was the most moronic play I’ve ever seen in my life.

  1309. Swanee Says:

    Wow. Jackson screwed up

  1310. SteveK Says:

    Let’s him jameis! One more TD!

  1311. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Winston’s “pass” was a forward lateral as well.

  1312. mark2001 Says:


  1313. Swanee Says:

    DJ would of scored

  1314. Sydney Says:

    Let the 2019 Draft talk begin!

  1315. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    if that was an actual design then kudos to whoever did that because that was really creative and well drawn up

  1316. cmurda Says:

    A heartbreaker because of this defense. FIRE MIKE SMITH. There’s no more excuses for this crap coaching staff. LOL @ DJax. You suck balls my friend.

  1317. Dooshlarue Says:


  1318. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Fire Jackson.

  1319. Patrick Says:


  1320. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I really cannot stand Jackson.

  1321. unbelievable Says:


    Same ole Bucs

  1322. Dooshlarue Says:

    It was a forward lateral.

  1323. Roger4 Says:

    Winston 2 INTS in the red zone

  1324. cmurda Says:

    Bye Mike Smith!

  1325. NPRSageBoy Says:

    More clowns than Ringling Bros. What a train wreck

  1326. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Not mad after this loss, WE COULD HAVE WON!!!! 🙂 🤣

  1327. Colonel Angus Says:

    Winston may be the dumbest QB there

  1328. Bucs14 Says:

    What kind of bullsh@t playground ball was that? This team stinks.

  1329. AtlBuc Says:

    As bad as it feels to lose, we still only have 3 losses

  1330. Dooshlarue Says:

    It would have been reviewed and reversed anyway.

  1331. richbucsfan Says:


  1332. Bangkok Buc Says:


  1333. Greg Says:

    Why would you run that play? God that was horrible.

  1334. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That shows that the coaching staff has no confidence in Winston whatsoever. You’re at the 21 and you have Evans, Jackson, Godwin and Howard and you run the clown up the middle to run a middle school play.

  1335. SteveK Says:

    Damn lateral!? That sucks.

  1336. FR Says:

    Winston 2 INTS in the red zone

  1337. Season Is Over Says:

    Would Brady ever do that play? Lmao. Back in the gutter.

  1338. Spicoli Says:

    So close… Mike evans not going oob killed the chance for a couple of more plays.

  1339. Tackleblockwin Says:

    What a creative play! So close too.

  1340. Bucs fan #7423 Says:

    Deshawn Jackson catches that we would have won!

  1341. Tampa Bay Tailgater Says:

    When that garbage is better odds of scoring than a play. Wow.

  1342. denjoe Says:

    the browns are gonna beat us down.

  1343. cmurda Says:

    Don’t be morons fellas. JW was good. He wasn’t great but this is squarely on Dirk and Smith. Smith should be gone yesterday but Dirk needs to follow. This is an embarrassment to real coaching staffs.

  1344. Godeep66 Says:

    Another JW loss. Human turnover machine

  1345. Geno Says:

    if that was an actual design then kudos to whoever did that because that was really creative and well drawn up

    I agree… something new that had a chance

  1346. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    at least they finally slowed down julio

  1347. Sydney Says:

    I listened to a Podcast by the main man on this site who said the Buc’s would definitely win and would be surprised if they didn’t. That made one of you.
