Pulse Of The Fans — Day 12

August 11th, 2019

Jameis was a hot topic

Bucs faithful were out in full force today and they were firing away answers at a few questions from JoeBucsFan.com. At every practice, manbeast JoeBucsFan.com intern Zach Seifter is taking the pulse of the fans. Here are their responses:

Question 1: What did you like from Friday night’s game in Pittsburgh?

Summary –  Fans had some popular likes: outside of one dumb penalty, Noah Spence showed up, RoJo looked like he belonged on an NFL football field, and Matt Gay looks to be the savior this kicking game has needed for years. But one thing stuck out in the minds of most Bucs fans more than anything else. And that was the first drive. The team went 81 yards down the field, flashing an effective running game, along with superb play from the offensive line and Jameis Winston. The touchdown finish was enough to make Bucs fans happy going into Week 2 of the preseason.

Question 2: What did you not like from Friday night’s game in Pittsburgh?

Summary: Fans were not afraid to voice what they thought went wrong. From inconsistent offensive line play from the backups, to missed tackles, and even penalties, there were quite a few things that didn’t go well for the Bucs. Among the fans, missed tackles was a big issue. Pittsburgh’s rushing attack went for 108 yards and sound tackling would have definitely lessened that number.

Question 3: How many quarters of the game did you watch on Friday night?

Summary: There were a wide variety of answers on this one. While everyone did watch the game, many didn’t watch the whole game. A few watched only the starters in the first quarter. Some turned off the TV at halftime, and some made it to the third quarter before calling it quits. And of course, there were the fans that did watch every snap. With every answer, though, came joy from the fact that the team’s starters looked sharp, especially the most important player on the team, Jameis Winston.

    The true pulse of the fans. Not the pulse of the 3-4 goons that bash Winston foolishly on these threads daily.

    Definitely not the the pulse of Magadude (Cliff Claven), but most of us that can read and see through his posts know why.

    Go Bucs!

    Health is the biggest issue right now.
    Vea, Allen, JPP , Evans and David did not play.
    If Bucs get healthy, D will be pretty good.

    I watched the entire game…mainly because I enjoy watching the tryouts.

    I’m one of the few who wants 18 games, 2 byes and 4 preseason games.

    But I also think preseason games should be free.

    I’d be fine with veterans only playing in 2 preseason games though.

    im in favor for more than 16 games but I think the divisions need to be reworked. I suggest two divisions in each conference each with 8 teams. You play 7 games against your division 8 against the other division in your conference and 4 against teams in the other conference so you play every team in other conference every 4 years at least. This will help get rid of the 7-9 teams that make the playoffs and the 10-6 teams that do not. The current division set up is flawed. There is no reason to have a division winner play a home game with an inferior record. The whole 4 team division set up is stupid itshould be more like the NHL and you don’t have to play teams in your division more than once. Top 2 teams in each divison make the playoffs and 4 wild cards with best record make it. Since you play each team in conference once the tie breakers will be decided. Schedule makers can make the teams you play in your conference home and away alternating every year. This would be better

    if 8 teams is too much for the playoffs than you can drop it to two wildcards…….Divisions are set up by geographical location rather than…….historical rivals. Dallas in the NFC east is stupid. So it would look like this:

    NFC South……Tampa, Miami, Jax, Atlanta, Carolina, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans.

    NFC East……..Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia, NY Jets, NY Giants, NE, Pittsburg, Buffalo

    AFC West……….LA Rams, LA Chargers, Vegas, Arizona, Seattle, San Fran, Denver, Kansas(odd team out)

    AFC North……..Minnesota, Greenbay, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinatti, Indianapolis, Detroit, Tennesee(odd team out)

  6. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Snookman-
    Your idea is logical, but there is no way the NFL will have the Cowboys leave the NFC east – too much $$$ involved

    I Watched the whole game. Jameis’s drive was good to see. Defense seemed stout with the starters, but after they went out we were not very good. Griffin, Tanner, Schnell and Dare O. made the second half more interesting than usual.

  8. D-Rome Says:

    Question 1: What did you like from Friday night’s game in Pittsburgh?

    I went into the game wanting to see three players: Jameis Winston, Ronald Jones, and Noah Spence. All of them performed well against their backups. I was pleased with a lot of what I saw on Friday night.

    Question 2: What did you not like from Friday night’s game in Pittsburgh?

    The O-Line play from the backups. I also didn’t like seeing the guy with the “Hulk Strong” tank top.

    Question 3: How many quarters of the game did you watch on Friday night?

    Three.

    alanbucsfan…………..……they will still play those same teams every year. The whole 4 team division play those teams twice a year is illogical. It creates balance of power inequities and it allows for some teams to have a competitive adavange based on the division the play in. The Patriots have been gifted 6 very week games every year and have dominated for 20 years against 3 division oponents who cannot get out of their own way. Tampabay on the other hand has been stuck in the toughest division in Football for the last 20 years. The sport is so popular it does not depend on division rivalries anymore. This set up would make the league more interesting at the end of the season and make every game matter that much more. No more 10-6 teams missing the playoffs and no more 7-9 teams hosting a playoff game. NO way 2018 Chargers should have traveled to Balitimore last year for their playoff game. Also since my proposal lines teams up in the same division based on geographical proximity………it will help attendance numbers.
