    Lee, please don’t ever do that “I warned you” voice again. Its stuck in my head, and not in a good way. That being said, I always love your takes on the bucs, even if I disagree with your Winston takes. Keep up the good work!

    Thriving without McIceCream?

    Who woulda thunk it? Oh just the haters that have been screaming from the rooftops for years. And to think we could have drafted Donald, Garrett, Rankins or Short all of which are NOT made of suga and spice and everything nice.

    The goal line stand was the play of the game imo.

    Come on Joe…you know why Koettter went for that 40 yard FG, don’t you? He saw Jameis’s play in overtime…and he didn’t want him to throw the ball in tight coverage, resulting in a turnover or a pick six. After all, what other reason can you speculate, unless you chalk it up to stupidity or insanity. And I don’t.

  4. mark2001 Says:

    Yes Joe…that call speaks more to Koetters faith in Jameis to not take a sack or throw and interception or something of the sort, than anything else. Just consider what it says about what his opinion of Jameis’s play at that point in time.

  5. DB55 Says:


    Then why not run the ball in OT. They need 10 yards tops? Why not run it?

  6. Brad Isherwood Says:

    God bet on the Bucs last Sunday,……that’s why you got the 59 yrd’r.

    Luv Boosty Collins ….Sorry bro,…..even though da House got new Turf,

    We gonna Party on Plastic….. Sunday : )

  7. BucThis Says:

    Even with Mike Smith gone I still believe the rest of the coaching staff needs to go. I also believe Winston deserves better coaching. If not, Jameis leaves for NY and throws TDs to Odell and wins Super Bowl after Super Bowl

    When it comes to 93 that’s not a minority of fans.

  9. mark2001 Says:

    DB55…with our running game? And even then, the chance of a fumble, poor exchange, etc.. Frankly, I don’t think he had much faith in either in that situation.

  10. DB55 Says:


    That’s my point. You can’t run, ST can’t score or even return a kick for decent position. The only option is Winston but you guys hate hate hate but you have no better options. Seems kinda ungreatful to me but wtfdik

    I’m just saying if Winston is so bad and can’t hit the long ball and ints and blah blah blah then run the ball. Limit Winston’s mistakes but they can’t do that bc the whole team sucks from top to bottom but Jameis Winston though….smh

    Winston is great huh…ask DJax

  12. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Is it that McCoy free-styles too much and goes for personal stats?

    I.e. instead of maintaining gap integrity he’s trying to get sacks or get the solo tackle or something?

    Seems we are better at defending short yardage with him out.

  13. Ed Says:

    Great podcast Lee and Ira love calling out Coach K for not attempting to advance the ball with the timeouts and the clock that was high school football 101 all I can say is this coaching staff Has to look at The strength‘s and weaknesses and maximize the strengths clearly Winston is a very good thrower on the run maybe Dirk goes a little bit against his grain and adds some read option plays maybe Dirk at some point develops roll out plays perhaps you put in misdirection screens instead of those diagrammed bubble screens.
