Giants 32, Buccaneers 31

September 22nd, 2019

Embarrassment rules the day in Tampa.

Head to Publix and ask for a paper bag.

The Bucs just crapped all over themselves against a bad Giants team with a rookie making his first NFL start.

Anyone still think Todd Bowles is a great defensive coordinator?

Jason Licht and Bucco Bruce Arians should feel ashamed.

Yes, our beloved Buccaneers share the cellar of the NFC South after the Panthers beat Arizona today without Cam Newton and the Falcons lost a close one.

Usually, when superstars play like superstars, great things happen. But not today.

Today was almost Mike Evans’ day. He owned the first half with seven receptions for 146 yards and three touchdowns. And he made the big grab in the fourth quarter to set up what should have been Matt Gay’s game-winning field goal.

Sadly, Gay soiled himself and missed a 34-yarder with time expiring.

Early on, Joe was so impressed that the defense literally beat up Saquon Barkley, with rookie safety delivering the knockout blow that sent Barkley out of the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury. Earlier, Jordan Whitehead came downhill and blistered Barkley, which sent the beastly running back to the trainer’s tent on the Giants’ sidelines.

But overall it was ugly for the Bucs defense. They let the Giants back in the game and got embarrassed by a rookie. Might want to have someone spying the rookie running the ball with the freakin’ game on the line.

Another game ball for Shaq Barrett, who recorded four freakin’ sacks and two strips of Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones. Barrett now has eight sacks on the season. EIGHT!!!

And the Bucs still lost — at home.

It was a dynamite first half by Jameis and a very forgettable second half at the Den of Depression.

Hat tip to Ronald Jones for another confidence-building day with 14 carries for 80 yards.

Stick with Joe for so much more out of this game.

  6. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Can’t pin this one on Jameis, he put the team in position to win at the end.

  8. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Once again the season is over by the end of September.
    Pathetic….

  9. Buc4life7878 Says:

    We still can’t find a kicker. Unreal

  10. BringBucsBack Says:

    When they go to England, can they just stay there?!

  11. Asdf Says:

    Franchise QBs don’t go poof and disappear in games

  12. Dan Says:

    Well said Joe. Season over as we hit the road. Interception as usual by Jamies and a rookie beats the Bucs as always

  13. Bucsfan3 Says:

    Never draft a Kicker…ever again. Too much pressure for them. I’m still in shock – 34 YARDS

  14. Cometowin2 Says:

    Kicker has got to go. The rest of the team played well enough to win.

  15. DB55 Says:

    Let’s hear it from the plant city hillbillies but but but Winston ….

    Come on jimmy bob im here all night

  16. LargoBuc Says:

    New York just gets to laugh at Tampa Bay all efing year huh.

  17. Broodlaw Says:

    So now does Cairo come back or did he get signed by somebody, this curse won’t be lifted till Matt Bryant retires.

  18. bucfanforever Says:

    This game reminds me of Schiano. We don’t have to try after half time. Half time is when we start to wind down and go home.

  19. Dirkdiggler Says:

    Great game just got outplayed. They will learn from this. 60 minute mindset. Keep ya head up bucs fans better times on the way.

  20. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Same ‘ole Bucs

  21. Unimpressed Says:

    Can we talk about the draft and next season now? Not like this team is going anywhere this season, might as well do what the dolphins are doing and selloff anything worth a damn for some picks.

  22. Tye Says:

    28-10 bucs lead at the half though…

    Rookie Jones played well under pressure for a rookie..

    Likely the easiest team the Bucs will play… 4-12 now might be a stretch!

  23. DB55 Says:

    380 yards 3 TDs 1Int.

    Winston needs to score 40 points 600 yards and 8 TDs to win with this team and the hillbillies will still complain.

    RUN JAMEIS RUN

  24. Jimbob Says:

    Joe,

    Can you dig into the late game stupidity we have seen over the last two weeks. That 5 yard delay of game exposed our incompetent kicker and was the difference. Truly unbelievable.

  25. SteveK Says:

    Joe,

    Thanks for mentioning Jameis! I saw his first half and was unable to watch the second half. How can the offense just dry up?

  26. A Train Says:

    two kickers drafted by Licht….they both SUCK and (soon to be) gone and he still has a job?

  27. Steve Says:

    And as nad as the kicker was all day the coaching staff put the game in his hand instead of Jamis.

  28. Wesley Says:

    Screw this team I simply cannot take it anymore.

  29. FR Says:

    The gods said payback for the Carolina game you shouldn’t have won.

  30. Rayjay1122 Says:

    I am going to the game in New Orleans. Time to buy a Saints shirt.

  31. Rojas Says:

    Winston put them in position to win, despite not playing as good as he did in the first half. This game is on gay.. and the secondary.

  32. Timbo Slice Says:

    I’m so tired of being a Bucs fan. Why did I have to be born in Lakeland.

  33. DooshLaRue Says:

    Jameis makes it harder than it has to be.

  34. Marine Buc Says:

    I thought we had a kicker. But he is a piece of s#it. [email protected] you Matt Gay. A$#hole.

  35. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Jason the Phucking Licht Brain should be run out of town on a rail. Wasted another damn FREAKING KICKER. The Glazers are easily the most ignorant owners in all of sports for keeping this dumpster fire of a GM. Just bring back Cairo Santos-NOW,

  36. SteveK Says:

    Db55,

    WHAT ABOUT THE SECOND HALF? Jameis is ok to not score in the second half because he let his quota in the first half?

    The stats look good, but the second half was EMPTY.

  37. Pa Privateer Says:

    Yay for Jones

    Yay for Barret

    Same ole same ole, life of a bucs fan

  38. Anonymous Says:

    Why the hell did we take a five yard penalty? We should have ran the ball up the gut and called a timeout or just called a timeout

  39. Fartman Says:

    I hate the bucs I hope they relocate so I don’t have to watch them anymore

  40. EA Says:

    Not sure if you can call this a home game, there were more Giants fans there

  41. Touchdown, Tampa Bay Says:

    Matt Gay missed a gimme and it’s Winston’s fault. Some people are just committed to hate.

  42. Wesuckagain Says:

    At least when we love by 40 it’s not as gut wrenching. But all Bucs fans knew that rookie quarterback or backup quarterback will make us look foolish. No matter the coach and their staff.

  43. mark2001 Says:

    Reminds me of the movie…Its a wonderful life. But in this case, you would have to say “every time the Bucs ring up a loss like this, another hundred fans lose interest in the team”. It’s a Bucs life. Life is too short…On Wisconsin.

  44. Jordan L Says:

    How is this Jameis’s fault? Gay makes the kick and he brings them back.

  45. WhatdaBUCisthis Says:

    Is this for real… Are we cursed? Ffuuccck!!!!!

  46. Steve Says:

    *Bad

  47. JA Says:

    Who cares … Bad teams play well too. Three chip shots missed. That’s the game, although the D made me sick. Great being a Bucs fan. We’re like the gambler that loses with a straight flush to a Royal Flush!

  48. Red86 Says:

    I think we should get Jalen Ramsey if Todd Bowels keep putting our cbs on the island. At least, we can roll coverage to the other cbs. Some plays was too aggressive. I’m encouraged how they fought to the end.

  49. Trey Says:

    So sick of watching this team. Dont know why I waste my time. Well at least we are consistent in disappointment and making opposing rookie quarterbacks look like hall of famers.

  50. LargoBuc Says:

    How do you have 11 defenders with their backs to a qb that has shown he can run. I was literally telling my dad watch him run it here. After that I knew this game was going to come down to our rookie kicker. It’s 100 percent predictable at this point.

  51. Anonymous Says:

    It’s the same sad song and dance for this worst team since the nfl merger. #FML

  52. DislocatedBucsFan Says:

    Jameis played a good game. The rookie played his ass off. Made great throws. Give credit where credit is due. Disappointed none the less.

  53. Buc believer Says:

    The two things that stand the same are the owners and the general manager. Until they are gone we are doomed.

  54. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Growing pains. I won’t cry over spilled milk.

    The two extra points turned out to be huge…but in truth, it was the defense that cost us this game. If they had just played as well in the second half as they did in the first, we would have won.

    So far as Winston…I think he had a great game. Yes, he threw a pick, but he also had 3-4 touchdowns (I forget which). I’ll take that every game. He took sacks when he had to. That one pick was an overthrow…all on him. But it is obvious that he is playing much, much smarter overall.

  55. Doctor Stroud Says:

    That was a terrible road loss! Conversely, if Gay had made the field goal, I was going to say that was a great road win.

  56. Koryc Says:

    If this kicker is not cut tonight I’m done with this team

  57. Sydney Says:

    Will all the people here who called me nasty names when I said 3-13 before the season please now defend their 8-8 and 9-7 and 10-6 nonsense predictions.

    I’ll wait…

  58. DooshLaRue Says:

    DB55….
    You drunk idiot.
    JW doesn’t need 8 TDs to win.
    Add up the score and refigure genius.

  59. unbelievable Says:

    Just P A T H E T I C!!!

    Defense wilted on that last drive.

    Jameis with a huge pass to Evans, but instead of going for the kill, we once again play it safe. Resulting in our rookie kicker putting the final cap on his meltdown of a day.

    I am fkn pissed right now.

    Oh and we made yet another rookie making his first start look like a fkn all pro!

    I hope someone kicks Todd Bowles in the nuts. Leftwich too.

  60. SteveK Says:

    I just can’t stand the poor losing.

    Bad kicking.

    Inconsistent QB play: from the number one overall pick.

    Our organization should be embarrassed. Giving up the booty to a rookie QB.

    Losses like this will kill our season.

    We had to win this game with the upcoming road games.

    What a damn shame. I don’t care about the stats. I want wins.

  61. Buc1987 Says:

    And Doosh…sees what he wants to see…

  62. DanBucsfan Says:

    Wow

  63. King C Says:

    New coach yet the exact same results as the one before and the one before and the one before and the one before.
    Must be a franchise thing

  64. cmurda Says:

    Top to bottom, garbage organization. The dude responsible for the lack of talent on this team while simultaneously strapping the team with cap issues got an extension. The Glazers are just clueless. Arians was a good hire and this coaching staff is legit despite the play of the talentless draft picks that aren’t cutting the mustard

  65. Bosch Says:

    The community and the owners continue to be punished for the “Fire Schiano” billboards. And rightfully so.

  66. Anonymous Says:

    I am tired of this crap. Every year same ole bucks. It doesn’t matter if John Madden was coaching this damn team. Never do all 3 phases play a good game. Mike Evans a hell of a game but he can’t do it all him self. I feel bad for the guy to be on this garbage team. I bet we don’t win another game all year except against Miami.

  67. LargoBuc Says:

    Mark2001 I felt we should’ve ran a high percentage play with a timeout and 13 seconds to go.

  68. SteveK Says:

    Can the Glazers consult me for personnel options at K?

    The fans can’t be worse!

  69. kstoges Says:

    Yo anyone’s blaming Winston needs to shut the f up lol he played fantastic today

  70. D-Rome Says:

    Where are all the doofs that predicted a 6-0 start?

    Jameis was masterful. Just excellent all around.

    How is it not one Bucs defender kept an eye on Daniel Jones when he was running all game?

    Goes to show that it’s STILL stupid to spend draft capital on a kicker.

  71. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Will any Buc fans be around by the time of next home game?

  72. K2 Says:

    We still have a kicking curse left 5 points off the board. However, we should have had at least one more touchdown.

  73. Rob Says:

    Fire gay in the locker room. Career as a Buc over. M effer

  74. Elita Vita Says:

    5 easy points for Matt Gay…2 conversions and a chip shot missed. We could have won this game…..but we didn’t. Gotta still stand behind this guy though…another game next week… need him to regain his confidence.

  75. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says: Says:

    The best QB clearly won….yeah I know about the missed kicks…the rookie knew what to do with the ball at all times…Jameis gets flustered …throw the ball deep down field where only your guy could get to it….Ronde was covering up the franchise when he was saying no one to throw to…that does not excuse stupid scrambling

  76. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Right On Believer

  77. Jimmy T Says:

    Hey BUC ANTHEM r u mentally challenged? WTF game were u watching! THE kicker issued two PATS & the game winning FG! The defense is still a work in process but i like this D much better than last year! Jameis WAS NOT THE ISSUE IDIOT DUMBASS

  78. Steve buc Says:

    Bad coaching why not take a shot at the end zone ? Why take a delay of game pentaly back us up 5 yds which we needed to win the game with kick

  79. Greg Says:

    Drafting a kicker? Stop it!

  80. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Too soon joe! Get rid of the knee jerk reaction. Both teams played well.

  81. ATrain Says:

    A 30 Million Dollar plays ALL GAME

    SAME AS THAT TRASH WE THREW WAY IN CAROLINA

    COLLECT A CHECK

  82. Born-n-Raised Says:

    Please cut the kicker

  83. SteveK Says:

    HOW WAS JAMEIS IN THE SECOND HALF? We did squat!

    I saw his first half, it was 🔥.

    Why nothing in the second half?

    Why does the rookie outsell him, and our OLine protected better!

    No Barkley either!

  84. LargoBuc Says:

    Those stupid newyorkers just come into our house and get their way like always.

  85. Buc1987 Says:

    13 more games to go for Jameis Winston OR…

    they should just start Ryan Griffin next week….

  86. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Guess what? If we convert 3rd and 3 before the Giants had a chance to get the ball, we could have ran out the clock. We call a swing pass to Brate for 1.5 yards. Are you freaking kidding me? Run a dam 3 yard pattern when you need 3 yards! This loss was on Gay and poor play calling at critical times. This is at best a 5-11 team. We suck again!

  87. DB55 Says:

    DB55 Says:
    September 21st, 2019 at 9:45 am
    It might be a 6-3 game with Matt gay missing a 24 yard fg to tie the game but wtfdik
    ————
    Wtfdik

  88. Jimmy T Says:

    OUR kicker missed two PATS and a chip shot I mean! Anyone who blames Jameis is a hater and doesn’t know football

  89. MadMax Says:

    I thought we had a kicker….NOPE!!!!

    Pack your jit Matt Gay YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. JameisHas2Go Says:

    Jameis is not entirely to blame for this loss. However, that pass to Mike Evans at the end was an underthrow if he hits him in stride that is a touchdown. Jameis holding on to the ball too long. Taking coverage sacks because he is afraid to turn over the football. He has not grasped after 4 plus seasons throw the ball away. Franchise Quarterbacks do not lose to rookie QB’s in there first start. Sorry, Jameis is not the answer, but we don’t have the answer on the roster so, play out the string and regroup at QB next year. Mike Evans is this generations Calvin Johnson. Great play on a terrible team. If he had Quality QB throwing him the ball, he would be a superstar and no one would talk about Odell Beckham Jr. Can we please stop settling for Field Goals when you have 13 seconds and 1 time out inside the 20. Go for the touchdown show your offensive you have confidence in them, even if you don’t have it in your QB.

  91. Hopalong Bucco Says:

    Until we get TWO OT’s, we are doomed.

  92. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Hell, everyone needs to get rid of the knee jerk reaction.

  93. Bucs life Says:

    What a bunch of pathetic losers. How the hell does this team find a way to lose (or try to lose) every week? Life long fan, however, I am really starting to question continuing as a fan. Change the coach, Same results. Change the kickers, Same result. Change the players, Same results. It was my fault thinking this team was turning the corner. They lost at home, again… against a crappy team whose #1 offensive weapon (Barkley) and best defender (olgatree) went out of game early. Better yet, they make a rookie qb look like an all pro. Unfortunately this is not just an outlier, it’s a “Bucs” life!!!!! How does anyone pay to see a game. There should be a class action law suit on behalf of Bucs season ticket holders. they get robbed of their money every home game. Lol

  94. Matt B Says:

    Without the stupid 5-yard delay of game penalty, that kicks goes in.

  95. DB55 Says:

    Start Griffin next week. 87

    Let Winston get ready for MLB.

    Bc seriously wtf is the point.

  96. Buc68 Says:

    Winston throws for 380 yards leads offense to 31 points, two missed pats, and has the kicker set up center hash for a 34 yard FG at end of the game and we are blaming him??

  97. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    BA = LovieS 2.0

  98. A Train Says:

    No matter what, an NFL kicker simply cannot miss a 34 yard kick or an extra point, PERIOD. That is ultimately why we lost. We should have won this game, even as bad as our pass defense played int he second half, we still would have won the game with a decent kicker. The last decent kicker we had here was Bryant and he was run out of town by an idiot coach who was mad that he was hurt and could not kick in the PRESEASON!

  99. tmaxcon Says:

    come on now guys Gay just needs a Hug and a Trohphy he will be better next week….

  100. Wow Says:

    Please Jameis, for your sake…..ask for a trade or start pitching again…..it is a losing organization…..no matter what you do it will not work out for you…. Tampa fans are ignorant about football and expect you to kick the ball and play Defense as well….ask the Devil Rays….Sucks being picked NO.1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  101. Bosch Says:

    Hey cmurda. The third quarter collapse is 100% on the coaches. Think about it. What have Arians and Bowles REALLY accomplished. What is their actual resume?

  102. Hopalong Bucco Says:

    Dotson with his dumb ass penalties every damn game and the matador at left tackle standing and watching.

  103. Dom>Licht Says:

    Wasted a whole F in draft on DBs… Rookie QB picks us apart… trade every 2020 pick for Ramsey… Licht Sucks with or without BA!!!

  104. TampaBay AllDay Says:

    I can’t breathe guys…this one really hurt

  105. Jimmy T Says:

    Buc 1987 u r a dummy! Ryan Griffin? What an idiot racist loser u r! So if the BUCS lose its on Jameis ? Just a hater that knows nothing

  106. Bangkok Buc Says:

    I need to start cheering for another team.
    These clowns aren’t worth my time. I’m out!

  107. DooshLaRue Says:

    First intelligent thing you’ve said in awhile 87!
    Go RG4!!

  108. Adrnagy Says:

    Jameis. Oline played well. Running game ok. Leftwich choke. Bowles choke. But after everything we could win or we should of won it if Matt gay didn’t missed the two extra points. And even after that he could of won and missed it.

    I don’t understand why we rolled with a rookie kicker.

  109. TampaBay AllDay Says:

    Go get Ramsey plzzzzzzz

  110. Rojas Says:

    Santos is somewhere laughing. Didn’t he get signed ?

  111. A Train Says:

    another thing, why take a delay of game penalty with a timeout in your pocket?

  112. Volbuc8 Says:

    Out coached big time!!! Only A fool would disagree. !! Great job Bowels letting a rookie QB look like a hall of famer!!

  113. Figures Says:

    Pathetic team and franchise.

    Blame whoever you want.
    Doesn’t matter. Bucs always find a way lose lol.

    After 25 years I just laugh lmao. Bunch of idiots

  114. Bucs life Says:

    I knew those two extra point fails at the beginning of the game (Miss, blocked) we’re going to be the Bucs undoing in the end. Bucs life!

  115. Deminion Says:

    F#ck bro Leftwich conservative !!! 3 runs in the red zone ??? Bowles zero coverage the whole game ??????????????????????? Wtf looks like we miss Devin white a little

  116. MadMax Says:

    JW did a good job, our D did a good job on the line, DB’s not so much.

    JW and ME were on fire in the first half, and then that last play to set up what shouldve been the game winner by Gay….oh well, Bucs life!

    Gluttons for punishment we are….

  117. Buccfan37 Says:

    Egads! Folded like a cheap suit. YUC

  118. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    😳

  119. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Santos would have made those short kicks. We wasted another draft pick on a choke artist. Thanks a lot Jason Gump! And the Glazers really need to hire a GM who has a clue. Also, I think BA used to be a great coach but Leftwich was a mistake. Arians should have remained in retirement.

  120. Jimmy T Says:

    DB 55
    U should be BAKER ACTED, my sympathies to your family!!! Wow what a F ING IDIOT u r

  121. Buc1987 Says:

    Buc68….

    BECAUSE IT’S ALWAYS WINSTON’S FAULT WITH A SELECT GROUP OF IDIOTS.

  122. ATrain Says:

    How is it not Winston’s fault

    He didn’t score in second HALF of game

    Can’t play for a half

    He Learned that from McCoy

  123. Fire the fans Says:

    Steve did you actually watch the game? The second half play calling was nowhere near as good as the first half. Very conservative

  124. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Pack up… This franchise is toast. Went from on top of the mountain at half…. straight to HELL. Gay, pack ur bags! Licht, pack your bags. Losers. My GIANTS friends r roasting me!!!! You’ve ruined another Sunday you jackasses

  125. Colonel Angus Says:

    I’m numb to it all

  126. Coburn Says:

    Kicker left 5 ptd out there.. Either makes those xps or kick at the end and we win. Having said that… by time he lined up for last kick I already didn’t care. Even if he made it they deserved to lose. Defense choked in second half a few key times while still somehow playing well in between. Offense caped thr bed in 2nd half.. don’t care how many yards.. how many red zone trips and no tds. Just as much to blame. . But tbh I’m just sick of this team in general. I don’t care if it’s gays fault or jameis fault or whover. On a day where they get over 100 yards rushing.. a guy with 4 sacks.. a receiver with 3 tds in first half they lose.. bucs are just one of those teams who find creative ways to give ganes away. Had no business losing to 49ers either. Tram just a buncha losers… go a take a while to break that.. don’t care who is to blame anymore.. will always be someone else the next time. They like to take turns

  127. Frank Pillow Says:

    Bruce should be absolutely flayed for taking that delay of game penalty after the big catch by Evans- especially with a TO in hand. That the TO and kick the ball from 5 yds closer. I just don’t get it…and don’t tell me the hash mark made any difference in the end. Bruce choked. Bowels choked. Gay choked with the missed FG x extra points. I just can’t do this anymore. It’s not worth it. We are losers, then, now and evermore.

  128. Cgmaster27 Says:

    Here come the jameis haters. Dude throws for almlst 409 yards and 3 tds and they’re still blaming him. Anthem ,you have the football iq of a brick wall. Go pick another team to troll with your stupidity. Guess what clown, jamies continues to play like this amd you all have to deal with a new contract.

  129. Jimmy T Says:

    Hey BOSCH
    ALL ARIANS HAS DONE IS TWO TIME COACH OF THE YEAR U DUMMY!!! God your stupid

  130. Red86 Says:

    Time to get Ramsey with these play calls. Our current cbs aren’t the best on island plays.

  131. ATrain Says:

    Stop Puling the Race Card

    It has NOTHING TO DO WITH COLOR

    Winston Did nothing but make one throw in the second half

  132. Frank Pillow Says:

    Oh yeah- the secondary has been fixed. I almost forgot.

  133. Pelbuc61 Says:

    New coaches, same choke job. Back to talking draft in September. This team has no idea how to win.Except for Barrett, defense looked like a Mike Smith defense. Gay is the current kicking fiasco. Nothing ever changes for us fans.

  134. Jeffbuc Says:

    Hate to say this but I am done. So sick of being disappointed by this team. It will be real easy to walk away now and never care again. Just so tired of having my Sunday’s ruined. Have to go through so much with the wife just to go watch the game and then get pissed 10 times a year what is the point
    Former avid buc fan peace out joe bucs fan. I really don’t care anymore. It doesn’t matter who we hire what we do it’s always same result. And I am done. To many other things I can do i Sunday.

    While the sheep see this as a huge loss, it is really a victory for the long term!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im not puttung this on Jameis or the kicker. This one is in the coaches. You got a qb that has shown you that he can run. Yet on 4th and 5 you have no spy or even any defender facing the qb.
    Then you have 13 seconds and a timeout inside the 20. At least try something there. Don’t just waste what little you have left to put it on the rookie kicker.
    I swear this script is too predictable by now.

    So glad I got rid of Sunday Ticket

  140. Bucs Fan Since ‘76 Says:

    500 yards of offense and what should have been 36 points. Daniel Jones made great throws. Our kicking game is terrible, on both sides. Jason Licht is a failure.

  141. Coburn Says:

    Oh and also against a rookie qb.. should have been salivating up 2 scores. Are we back to being the defense where everyone has figures out you just gotta tgrow deep? Assuming you can buy some time against shaq?

  142. Bucsfan1988 Says:

    So help me….any clowns on this blog that have the y’all to blame Jameis for this loss can suck a big bag of d_cks….

    Ridiculous comments I’ve seen…..

    Conservative play calling in 2nd half was on Leftwich….Inconsistent pressure on Jones and weak corner-play…

    And the coup-de-grat…..Matt Gay poops his pants on an extra-point + 1 yard kick…And here we are, winless at home AGAIN!! 😩😩😩

  143. A Train Says:

    BA blew it in the end there. I would have called my last time out after MEs catch, 13 seconds left, take one shot in the end zone, tell Winston to throw it out, no sacks and kick the FG. Probably would have gone through but the closeup replay showed a terrible divot, like me hitting an iron on the golf course, behind the ball….it was a mis-kick, a pure CHOKE.

  144. Defense Rules Says:

    The bigger question is ‘How can you be up 28-10 at the end of the first half and end up losing 32-31?’ They had the Giants on the ropes and let them wiggle free. Then it bit them in the arse. Offense fell apart, defense fell apart, and S/Ts fell apart. Turns out the Bucs played like most thought they’d play. Mediocrity reigned supreme.

  145. Tim Says:

    Why was Boles fired in NY?

  146. Sydney Says:

    With the Cardinals being arguable, we won’t play a worse team (especially defensively) than the Giants the rest of the rest of the season…

    Hence, 3-13.

    Before you speak, did you see the Panthers and Saints today with their back-up QB’s?

    You tell me, where are the wins?

  147. JimmyJack Says:

    I can’t believe we still can’t fix the kicking position. As a fan this is literally tormenting. That position is literally making it impossible for this team to ever stand a chance in this league.

    Don’t wanna overreact. I guess give this idiot one more game. As fans we have tolerated way more kicking problems then necessary.

    If I am the Glazer’s I am seriously considering firing the GM solely based on not fixing the kicker position. Once the decision comes to replacing Matt Gay I absolutely would not trust Licht to find a new kicker.

  148. molecricket Says:

    Jameis Winston is not a consistent quarterback. there are quarterbacks that are in that have been in this league one.two.three years. even back ups that when they play,they are consistent. not Jameis,

    I just renewed today.

  150. Coburn Says:

    Dunno if I’d let jameis off the hook but yes looks like we went turtle om red zone. Could he have missed some tds though? Probably.. don’t care abut blaming that much though. Team likes to take turns in giving away games. Plenty of blame to go around and just doesn’t matter

  151. Pittsshore Says:

    JW was supposed to take a knee on the left hash. Basic knowledge that kickers (righties) prefer the left hash. Also, how about that ugly interception. It only proves that he can rack up stats when the Bucs are way behind. Ignorant people choke under pressure.

  152. Craig Says:

    Tradition lives, the Bucs snatched defeat from the jaws of victory once again, sorry arsed m*****F*****s

  153. DB55 Says:

    8 TDs and 1500 yards passing wouldn’t be enough to win in the meth capital of the world but I’m the idiot 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  154. JimmyJack Says:

    I will not care about blowing a 18 point lead or our QB playing a poor 2nd half. The team played like winners today and got us the win. That kick is routine……We do not have a kicker that can do his job and you will lose games without it.

    We lost as a team all because of one guy and that was the kicker. Cost us 6 full points today.

  155. DB55 Says:

    “Ignorant people” that’s code for you know what. Lmao.

    Come on out and play MEGAFANS

  156. molecricket Says:

    Jameis Winston is not a consistent quarterback. there are quarterbacks that have been in this league one.two.three years, even back ups that when they play,they are consistent. not Jameis,

  157. lowercaseg Says:

    Shoot me.

  158. Armybucsfan Says:

    We lost what would have been a gimme win when we took out their number one player in Barkley. However we still found a way to sh!t the bed after having a huge lead going into the half. Our secondary got beat like they stole something. Outside of shaq our D looked like complete crap. Winston needs to learn to stop staring down M.Evans….Godwin and his TE’s were open during each of his sacks when he was trying to go to Evans. Our offense was nearly completely stopped in the second half.

  159. Adrnagy Says:

    How can you let a QB rush for two TD ?

    Offense won the game. Defense lost the game along with Matt gay. DBs were getting beat by who receivers ? Not even a #1.

    But I like the fight. The effort. We are one player in defense away. Can it be Ramsey ? Or another pass rusher idk. But Winston played really good.

    Giants kept the foot down on passing. Bucs went conservative.

  160. JameisHas2Go Says:

    Winners
    Mike Evans WR Without question the best player on this team it is not even close, and I feel sorry for him playing on this lousy team.

    Shaq Barrett OLB Diamond in the rough who has exploded onto the scene and will be signed by Seattle in the offseason because our Management will screw it up again.

    Ronald Jones RB Slowly build confidence and will the starting running back by the end of the season

    Mike Edwards S Solid rookie so far

    Alex Cappa OG Don’t hear too much about him, and that is a good thing. Solid play so far.

    O.J. Howard TE Blocking was improved and made his presence felt in the passing game early.

    Losers
    Matt Gay PK Come on kid get it together

    Ndamukong Suh DT Non factor, this is what you are afraid of when you sign Suh

    DeMar Dotson OT Old and slow, cannot get out of his stance anymore and too many bad penalties

    Bruce Arians Coach Went conservative in the second half and while the running game got going, we put up 3 points. Too conservative. This team is not good enough to play conservative.

    Vernon Hargreaves CB This is the Vernon we remember

    Mediocre
    Jameis Winston QB Best performance of the young season however, he has accuracy issues that will be not resolved at this point that kills good drives at inopportune times.

  161. Mike Johnson Says:

    Wait a min..OK.. My bad gu ys..My wife was pouring me another scotch as I get further into Buc Numbness Come on, Let hear it for..THE SOB’s (same Ole Bucs)
    BucLife baby!

  162. Buccaneerscotty Says:

    Yeah why did we take a delay of game penalty? Add that 5 yrds and the field goal is good. And Santos is a Tennessee Titan isn’t he ?

  163. LargoBuc Says:

    Let me try again. Im nit blaming the kicker or Jameis. Im blaming the coaches.
    4th a 5 against a qb who has show you that he can run. No spy. 11 defenders with their backs to the kid.
    13 seconds left and a timeout inside the 20. Run something! Dont just assume your rookie kicker is going to win the game there!
    This script is predictable at this point!

  164. DooshLaRue Says:

    Jeffbuc

    I don’t blame you for wanting to give up, maybe leave this message board?

    However, you may have a change of heart after a 1 game winning streak and want to come back in.
    If so, contact a specialist, Buc1987, he can really help you forget that you wanted to quit and get you back up and running with Winston in no time.

  165. Killian Says:

    There’s a lot of blame to go around for this loss. Obviously Gay leaving 4 points out there hurts, but this game should have never gotten this close. When the Pats go up by 15-20 at halftime, they step on the throat in the 3rd. We go conservative. That interception by Jameis was so atrocious, yet expected. I can’t wait for the Bucs to draft another QB. At this point I really feel that there is no hope for Jameis. A couple more losses and it’s time to start accumulating draft picks in an attempt to get one of the premier QBs coming out this year or next.

  166. Coburn Says:

    When you go from manhandling them in 1st hkf to get curb stomped in 2nd that’s coaching. And no we did everything to give t away even before Gay kicked last one. Still not sure about him.. we knew he was inconcistanf.. almost better at long than short. .. which is last thing you want.. should hit the gimmes but he did hit thay 54 yard er. .. Either way they made a dustments at halfand we clearly did not

  167. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Yep, Jay Miss had a helluva 2nd half. This team sucks out loud! I think Daniel Jones, the rookie, outplayed Jay Miss.
    Jay Miss was great in the 1st half when it didn’t matter. Defense stunk in the 2nd half. Leftwich went turtle as well.

    losers coaches, put together by a finish HC. the situation is exactly the same as with Lovie and his buddies…… very sad for us…..very sad.

    BA = LovieS 2.0

  169. 76bucborn Says:

    has anyone mentioned carlton davis yet? hes a penalty machine that cant cover a band aid he should be benched

  170. Coburn Says:

    When yu give away a gane you had right in the bag you can just assume half thr team is to blame. When you blow it that bad it won’t be one or two guys

  171. BigZ Says:

    It doesn’t matter who the qb is, its been a losing culture since JG was fired. So it then and see it now. Starts with the owner, GM, HC and QB. Look at the history of winning teams. How many do we have??

  172. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    “Tale of Two Halfs

    My Dad and I

    Bugged the headsets

    1st half was all scripted plays

    BA let leftfoot all alone in the 2nd half

    What we got in the 2nd half was exactly like the 1st 2 games

    Run run pass”

    Son of Kobe Faker

  173. FR Says:

    Pressure Winston and he will blow the game for you. Why didnt the Bucs just keep feeding Evans dude couldn’t check him all night. Is it me or does Evans look mad at the world or just mad he plays on the Bucs

  174. DB55 Says:

    Cut Jameis he didn’t go 8 for 8 with 8 TDs and 800 yards. Unacceptable the kid sucks

  175. BigZ Says:

    We had a good quarterback coming out of college and Jameis and this franchise ruined just like they’ve ruined other players how long before me 13 says he wants to be traded he been in the league a while now we’re turning him into Gerald McCoy and to be honest the Bucks probably should consider trading Mike cuz he’s not going to be here when the bugs are good do like the Dolphins trade away whatever Talent we have and stockpile picks this team is a long way away from winning the offensive line needs repaired secondary still sucks no defensive end and how many players are on a one-year contract and who’s going to want to come here

  176. BigZ Says:

    Wait till Daniel Jones plays his next game he’ll suck but we make him look good like we always do I knew I should have picked them up and play them in fantasy

  177. Vico Says:

    Should we start the draft talk season now? Only a miracle would take us to the playoffs now.

  178. Bucamania Says:

    The whole secondary, full of 1st, 2nd, and third round picks, sucked horribly. None of them can cover anyone.

    And Matt Gay is garbage. 2 missed XP and choked on the game deciding kick after the real football players put him in a position to kick a chip shot to win. I hate kickers. Just disgusting.

  179. Vico Says:

    Can we start the draft talk season now? Only a miracle could take us to the playoffs now.

  180. T REX Says:

    Losers gone lose

  181. Vico Says:

    Killian, it was 5 points. 5. If you don’t count the block you better prove that was their merit only, he was kicking low, look at the tape.

  182. FR Says:

    Winston leads the NFL with INTs and is pulling away from the pack every game at what point do you say enough is enough. Hew will be playing some real good teams soon who the hell are you all gonna blame then?

    ___________________________________________________________

    Oh, the irony! Talk about an ignorant statement lol.

    We were leading the entire game until the last 1:30. Majority of Winston’s stats were all in the first half, ya know, when we were WINNING 28-10???

    Lol pittshore you are quite the dolt.

  184. Kristhian Vejarano Says:

    Pathetic playcalling in the second half and the kicker I knew this since the stupid kicker battle that shouldnt took place to begin with since we already have a kicker and it was Santos but everybody was so impress with the long fieldgoals that forgot that we have an offense that can move the ball to the redzone. We dont need a kicker that cant kick extra points or 20 to 40 yards fieldgoals.

  185. Capt. Tim Says:

    Odd.

    Jones played like a Franchise QB. When the Game was in the Balance,
    He drive the team down and scored!
    Our Franchise QB disappeared in the Second half. He did drive the team down- and put the game in the Kickers hands. Never a good Idea.

    Once again, we are good enough to lose close.
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

  186. Bob in Valrico Says:

    We won the first half. Sitting on a first half lead is an invitation for opposition
    to win the game. After the first couple of scores by Giants. We had our chances
    to score points but failed. Jameis definitely cooled off in the second half. HE had a INT and a couple of key passes he missed by several yards. Evans was wide open a short distance away from Perriman on the pass Jameis threw well behind Perriman. I question the motion play to Brate toward the end. We probable have
    5 people with quicker feet to make something happen on that play.
    No question Gay’s misses hurt and ended up being the difference in the game.
    But IMO, Jameis could have and should have played better in the second half.
    THere is a reason his QB rating dropped 35 points from his near perfect
    first half. He took sacks he shouldn’t have and some of his key passes were off target. You have to play to WIN the game the entire game. He did not play with enough poise and confidence most of the second half.

  187. Fire Goodell Says:

    Does BA retire again after the season?

  188. Old School Athlete Says:

    In the first half, we were playing to win. In the second half, we played to not lose. What happens when you play to not lose? You lose.
    I lived in KC in the 90’s. The Chiefs had an OC named Paul Hackett. This was his philosophy. Week after week the Chiefs would jump out to a big lead in the first half and then get all conservative and let it slip away in the second. Ruined the last years of Joe Montana and Marty Schottenheimer’s careers. I would get so frustrated, I couldn’t breathe.
    If this is how it’s gonna be here, they will lose me. I can’t deal with that again. I love football, love Tampa, but I can’t deal with that insanity.

  189. Ed Says:

    One of the things the Bucs do really well is blow games. This game should have been put away in the 3rd quarter with another touchdown to get to 35 points but before that could happen they gave up that easy touchdown to Engram. That run down the sideline gave NY the confidence they could punch back at the Bucs and that Tampa is a mentally weak team. The play call to Brate was terrible, he is really slow and couldn’t make anyone miss. If that play goes to Howard or Godwin they get the yardage. This kicker isn’t a pro, any pro kicker makes those chip shots. Winston started fast and went cold after halftime. Winston did enough to win but Daniel Jones was more impressive, he made some great throws while under pressure. Jameis made good throws but when pressured he was off target or indecisive. Only the Bucs could physically outplay another team but lose because of their mistakes.

  190. July Joe Says:

    Jameis played like an MVP and his TEAM lost.

    Jimmy G played like TRASH (3 turnovers and another fumble that was recovered) but his TEAM won.

    IDIOT fans just don’t get it.

  191. Touchdown, Tampa Bay Says:

    JW misses one pass or makes one mistake and it’s highlighted by all the couch sitters. The man played well today, but haters are never happy.

  192. Buczilla Says:

    I mentioned under a previous post that this was a game the Bucs typically lost during the last 15 years or so. Jameis kept his head out of his a$$ and actually played well, but the defense made Jones look like the second coming of Marino. This team has a lot of work and a lot of growing to do before they get any respect. It’s too early to advocate burning this whole thing to the ground, but this was a disgusting loss.
