Gameday Tampa Bay!

December 2nd, 2018

Game 12

Stinking Panthers (6-5) at Bucs (4-7)

Kickoff: 1 p.m.

TV: WTVT-TV Channel 13, DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket Channel 713. 

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (WXTB-FM 97.9 in the Tampa-St.Petersburg region; 97.9 FM ESPN Radio in Tallahassee); Spanish language broadcasts on WTMP-FM 96.1 and WMGG-AM 1470 in Tampa; SiriusXM Channel 81.

Weather: Danger Will Robinson, and anyone not named “Will Robinson” planning to attend the game. predicts thunderstorms at kickoff. Tailgaters will enjoy temperatures in the high 70s under cloudy skies right up until kickoff. Then, the rains come but should be gone by halftime. Look for a high of 82 sometime in the early third quarter.

Odds: Per, Stinking Panthers -3.

Outlook: Joe is actually expecting a good game from America’s Quarterback today. Why? Because DeSean Jackson won’t play. The two have never been able to get on the same page and with Jackson out today with a messed up thumb, and Bucs Bit-O-Honey-snacking, Ozark-watching, yams-eating coach Dirk Koetter not knowing when Jackson will return, there is murmuring among conspiracy theorists that Jackson ready has played his last game for the Bucs. Are the Bucs catching the Stinking Panthers at the right time? Carolina has lost its last three games. Not sure if the Stinking Panthers are circling the drain or ripe to bust out against this beat up Bucs defense.

Trinkets: Stinking Panthers QB Cam Newton completed 19 of 25 (76 percent) for 247 yards with 2 touchdowns without an interception in first meeting with the Bucs this season. In two division games this season, Newton has 582 pass yards (291 per game) with 5 touchdowns against one pick. In his past five road games, Newton has 1,429 pass yards (285.8 per game) with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Had 157 scrimmage yards (79 rush, 78 receiving) and 2 rushing touchdowns in last game against the Bucs. McCaffrey looks for his third division game in a row with 100+ scrimmage yards. … WR D.J.

Green as only players in NFL history with 1,000+ receiving yards in each of first five career seasons. Evans is looking for his third in row with 100+ receiving yards. Has 100+ receiving yards in 3 of his past 4 at home. … WR Adam Humphries had a touchdown catch last week. He has four touchdowns in his past four games. … DE Jason Pierre-Paul had a sack last week. Has 5 sacks and forced fumbles in 5 home games. Ranks fourth in NFC with 10.5 sacks in 2018, his third-career season with at least 10 sacks. … DT Vita Vea had a sack and career-high 3 tackles for loss in Week 12. Has a sack in 2 of his past 3 games. … DE Carl Nassib had a sack and a forced fumble last week. Has 6.5 sacks in his past 6.

    Classic pic Jose. Fire the cannons!!!!!

  2. Rob Says:

    Lol. I remember those were the skank Panther cheerleaders that got busted for something last year. Much went right for the Bucs last week against the 49ers. Playing a much better opponent this week will tell us quite a bit about Joe’s favorite quarterback, the human ATM, America’s turnover machine. I will be thrilled if Joe’s idol does not turn the ball over via fumble or interception but is anyone betting on it? Go Bucs. Will Grier would be nice pick for the Bucs next year.

    XD Joe, you wrong for that.

    Ah yes, the Strapon Sisters!

    I quit JBF.

    For the the 4th time anyways…

    This time it seems…. for real.

    I’m screened on JBF….. then published 3 hours later….that’s not ME.

    It was nice meeting you all. Hope the site continues and grows. I guess.

    I posted this late in the night. Early morning….so you idiots that screen me can decide whether or not to post my post. I could REALLY care less at this point of being screened for so long….as if. YUCK!!!

    Lee and Steve are Hitler-Titty babies….that for some reason want to control to a high degree, what’s said and not said in the comment section of their website that covers an NFL team. The lowest of the low The Tampa Bay Bucs! LMFAO guys…..Ooooh wouldn’t want you guys to get sued or anything over something a poster put down on your site….cause that happens all the time. No actually it NEVER happens sissy boys….like EVER. BUT BUT BUT….

    CENSOR ON… see what that gets you in a few years… problem. Just dismantle the comments anyways….. cause all Tampa Bay needs is you two guys. LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!



    87! Signing off this BS forever!

    BUH BYE!

  6. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    What’s with those two?

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    Lets see what happens. I’m a huge Winston fan but his worst games generally have been against the Panthers, so I’m interested to see what he can do. Hopefully he has a chance in the game as I fully expect the defense to play basically the exact same game they played a few weeks ago – and if that happens Winston’s only choice is to try to play catch up. Of course the idiot Winston haters think it’s better to lose 42-3 with no turnovers than to lose 45-38 with 4 turnovers, because that’s what stupid people do, they worship at the altar of Mike Glennon and think a defense giving up 35 points in the first half isn’t why you lose, but instead a 3rd quarter INT is. Anyways if the defense can keep it somewhat close and not have the Bucs down 21 points in the 2nd quarter then I hope we’ll see a good game from Winston.

  9. Dooshlarue Says:


    You gotta lay off the sauce man!
    I don’t doubt your comments are getting moderated but you seem to get really upset in the wee hours and I think it’s because you’re drunk.
    Hell, we’re Bucs fans…… if we’re not alcoholics then what the eff is our excuse for caring about this team?

    Hang in there man.

  10. SenileSenior Says:

    22 sacks.

    It seems as if we do have some talent and some decent desire to win on our defensive side after all. Coaching decisions do matter.

    How about that!
    Go Bucs!!!!

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:


    Join the club and re-join JBF……..your screening isn’t personal…..sure there is screening but it is much more some type of glitch in the system….I am seeing complaints about it from several posters who aren’t controversial at all.
    If you don’t choose to return….I wish you and your family well.
    There are many who agree with most of your opinions and we will carry on.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo thanks the Hoes for putting the two Stinking Panther Hoes’ pics up. Pablo remember they was arrested for goin’ down in an area bano…….Pablo isn’t surprised they chose each other because Tampa men weren’t drunk enough that time of day to be interested.”

    Mug shots of two white women?

  15. Todd Says:


    I feel your pain on posting and being exiled to the holding tank until someone decides it’s a worthy post.

    Joe and Joe, ever considered flipping your screening process and if someone has initially cleared the “first post” hurdle without it being obviously offensive, simply allowing that email address to post always until you either identify them “as” being offensive whereby you can delete their comment and/or ban them?

    This delay negates conversation. There’s no discussion…only people’s posted opinions.

    I think you need to update your platform to invite exchange instead of bury it.

    One fan’s opinion.

  16. Bucnut2 Says:

    The hopeful posts of last Sunday evening and Monday end about 2:30 toady. This will be a blowout at half-time. The second and third level of the defense are shredded with injuries and America’s Turnover Machine makes his comeback!!! at least 2 picks forcing it to Evans and Brate.

  17. Buc believer Says:

    Ah yes I remember those two beauties! Damn I wish I could meet them! LMAO!!!

  18. “That guy” Says:

    What’s up with the mugshots? Did I miss something? Were they selling blowjobs outside of Raymond James?

  19. Slugglife Says:

    Hey Rob, I didn’t know about the skank cheerleader thing, but first thing I thought was that those were mugshots.

    I can spot a raunchy broad a mile away.

  20. kyle Says:

    Ah, my favorite lesbians! Go bucs!

  21. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Well thought out comments for 87.

    I was surprised once when Joe said I was under moderation. LMAO MOI? I’m generally pretty nice here about most topics except for violence against women which due to my family history does seem to set me off.

    I suspect one of the Joes was not happy with my views on JW which at least are not hyperbolic and I do not accuse JW of stuff with the women that hasn’t yet been proved. And while I think he’ll stay and turn out for us I’m not blind to his faults and weaknesses…that hacks off some people.

    Overall though I gotta say this site is the most open I’ve ever visited. Obviously the Joes have to protect themselves legally when comments get out of bounds but overall I think they do a great job of moderation….even if that includes me!

  22. Slugglife Says:

    Now that I’ve researched the bathroom antics of those two beauties, I too would like to meet them. Too bad there was no video.

    Guess I need to go find a video now.

  23. Gofortheface30 Says:

    1987 – you need to get laid. Weirdo

  24. buccfan305 Says:

    Good…..I Like Bobo Wilson over punk a$$ DeSean 1 trick pony Jackson any day….he might not be as fast but the kid plays physical and is a beast over the middle on a slant route and has enough speed to take it to the house.

  25. Buc believer Says:

    The skank on the left looks like she was punched in the nose! Boy her honker is big!

  26. BucFamous Says:

    For the uninformed–these are the 2 Panther cheerleaders who were arrested in 2005 for having sex with each other in a bathroom in a Tampa nightclub and resisting arrest.


  27. “That guy” Says:

    Shame on the arresting officers.

  28. DBS Says:

    Ya 87 your another ” I quit JBF ” or the Bucs and then return. Mine get screened too but take it personal? Man get a life.

  29. Loyaltotheend Says:

    This story never gets old, ever

  30. HowToSpellRhonde Says:

    1987 sounds like an adult still being nursed by his mom and complains when his fruit loops get soggy stacked on her on her bud.

  31. Hunter Says:

    Yay! Now that’s the correct photo, Joe!

  32. Fire Light Says:

    The bj bus got busted last year or the year before I believe. And yes it’s a true. Stay classy Tampa!!Lol
