“This Is Just Like Stealing”

September 28th, 2019

Now this is one of the best things the Buccaneers are doing this season.

No, it has nothing to do with cheerleaders or Shaq Barrett’s ridiculous sacks outburst. The Bucs have Rondé Barber breaking down film for the team website each week.

The latest episode is below and he focuses plenty on two successful connections between O.J. Howard and America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, last Sunday. “This is just like stealing,” says Barber, as he outlines how Howard was set up to be isolated on a defensive back.

Great stuff here from one of the great Bucs film gurus of all-time.

Howard is an incredible weapon. So is Mike Evans. So is Chris Godwin. Jameis was balling for most of Sunday. Yet when the Bucs needed to win the game, they opted for the foot of a struggling rookie kicker when there was time to win it with a touchdown. Yeah, it’s still driving Joe bananas.

Hopefully, the Bucs find a way to be “stealing” with Howard against the Rams. He was drafted 2 1/2 years ago to terrorize defenses. This would be a great time to kick it up a notch.

    Great film breakdown by Ronde. Would love to see more of that in the future.

  2. Rick Says:

    Love these.

  3. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Too bad we don’t have a real franchise QB to take advantage of all our weapons.

    Jameis Winston is the true definition of career backup QB in the NFL and 5 years of him being a bonehead proves it.


  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Still wanting us to go for TDs…….amazingly wrong……the only reason….we missed the kick which just shouldn’t happen…..

    Week after week you see teams in the exact same situation setting up for the kick.

  5. Ndog Says:

    TheBucsAnthem seriously what is wrong with you? Jameis played fantastic on Sunday how can you hate on the guy for going for 380 and 3 TDs? I don’t even what to get into with you today but for the record you have a real problem man. Take a look around the league and please point out many guys that lost with production like that? You are freaking crazy if you think he had ANYTHING to do with us losing that game. I just don’t get what you guys are watching and that is why I always call you guys clueless cause you make ridiculous comments like the one above.

  6. Youngbucs Says:

    To bad for Howard Winston can hit him in stride🤦‍♂️

  7. Ndog Says:

    Youngbucs to bad for you your apparently blind as he hits his receivers in stride all the time. You are just to clueless to see it or don’t want to see it which is probably the case.

  8. OBP Says:

    OJ and Rojo/PB are the only way I see our offense moving on Sunday, Mike tends to struggle against top CBs and the Rams have 3 of them. If we can attack the middle of their defense we’ll still be in it to the very end.

  9. OBP Says:

    On a side note can we please trade Cam Brate already? He’s had all of what, 3 catches this season? Most overpaid back up not named Eli Manning atm.

  10. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Lol the haters always get mad when you call them haters. The video shows Jameis throwing perfect passes to Howard in stride and they claim he didn’t. Maybe it is the Trump effect of believing what you are seeing is not real. Haters gonna hate. At least is real fans can enjoy it when out QB balls out.

  11. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    @ Ndog

    You and DB55 and all the other Jameis apologists need to wake up and take your Jameis Winston glasses off and smell ths sh!t roses this QB and this joke of Franchise has been doing over the past 5 years.

    5 FREAKING YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s nonsense and he hasn’t improved……this team has improved….PERIOD!!!!

    It’s the “SAME OL JAMEIS” and “SAME OL BUCS”

    …………………….don’t bucs have the NFL record now of not being to the playoffs in like 13 years??????

    This Franchise is a complete joke and starts from the Head down…..the top!!!!

    The Glazer boys are a joke and have screwed this Franchise, the fans, and the Tampa Area since Malcom Glazer died.

    Look at how everything is ran from a buisness perspective and that includes past coaches and GMs that were hired.

    The Glazer boys are cheap and they don’t wanna…….they go straight cheapo mode.

    JAMEIS IS JOKE and needs to GTFOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wish when Cancer93 McCoy left, he could’ve took Jameis with him.

  12. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    …….and all these dumbass fans who think just because Jameis did have turnovers or choke the game away, that he’s somehow now this Good Franchise QB?????

    Gee Jameis, you did your job as a Game Manager……here’s Gold Star on your forehead like he’s in Elementary School

    …..the FRANCHISE has been stuck in Elementary school since Malcom Galzer died.

    Whata joke this FRANCHISE IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Hey Anthem you troll, game managers dont throw for 380 yards and 3 TDs. You can go root for the Titans or Mike Glennon’s team or wherever the hell he is now. Just go away though!

  14. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    @ TouchDownTampaBay

    Oh yeah, start off with the “Troll” just because I’m a realist”

    You live on the “Jameis Fantasy Island of wannabes Franchise QBs” with all the other Jameis Apologists.

    You can be better than that loser Jameis Winston…


  15. Hodad Says:

    Those three TD’s, and 380 yards look good, until you break it down. He only threw for 117 yards, no TD’s, and one pick in the second half. Third down, the money down, he was horrible. The Jameis apologist’s will see what he’s made of the next five weeks. I still can’t get over the 49er game, where he handed them the victory at home with not one, but two pick six’s. Some great QB performance that was.

  16. Anonymous Says:

    Who did he hit in stride I see clearly they always have to slow down stop twist n turn to catch his deep balls our backup qb showed u what these weapons can
    Do in three gms last year more than Winston ever showed and I’m not a hater
    Just tired of it

  17. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    You’re not a realist Anthem. Game manager’s do not have games like Jameis did on Sunday. You ignore the absolute dimes he throws in the video, the deep balls he connected on with Evans, and the 380 yards and 3 TD passes. Game managers throw for 170 yards, 1 TD and hope their defense bails them out. Franchise QBs do what Jameis did and have a game winning drive at the end to win the game. Unfortunately Licht failed again in his quest to find a kicker.

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    This Is Just Like Stealing

    That’s exactly what every opponent thinks about when playing this minor league franchise for the last 42 years of failure outside of sapp and grudens glory year.

  19. RustyRhinos Says:

    After four seasons and three games we can see the only stats that matter for Jameis Winston as starting franchise NFL QB is WINS! Not yards TD’s or great plays. Yes our Defense has not been above the bottom 10 teams most of his time here. The way we were “sold” on “America’s QB” was how he would make our entire team better by just being under center. Because he has he highest QB Intelligence in a generation. Well at nearly half a generation being his Fifth season, were is the QB intelligence showing up? Is it the state down of the receiver he plans to throw to? The opps passes that hit DB’s in the hands and miss he WR? Or the fumbles, yes he is our best QB ever. But his four year three game record as the Franchise QB for the Buccaneers is what it is. What happens if we sign him to another contract were will we find the extra cash to build a better Oline and Defense? Then what will the reasons for the same play we have seen the past four seasons and three games? How well will our chances be to build a great team with a third of our cap space in one player be?

  20. ATLBuc Says:

    Anthem!!! You’re the GM.
    Which QB in the league would you trade Jameis for?

  21. tmaxcon Says:


    don’t bring the cap into it pal…. other teams do just fine managing real talent with high salaries…. the bucs franchise fails at every aspect of being a nfl franchise from ownership to the janitors they are simply the worst in the business…. bucs have no leadership therefore no short term or long term plans. Winning 8 basement titles in the last decade and still having cap issues is just more proof the glazers have no intentions of fielding a respectable on field product. two things for sure when you come to run / coach the bucs franchise. NO EXPECTATIONS and ZERO pressure from Ownership to win. It’s truly the perfect retirement destination.

  22. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    LOL @ Rusty. It is a team game dude. 52 other players are involved in the results. Jameis did enough to win the but the kicker couldn’t make a chip shot in the end. Going by your logic, if Matt Gay goes out next week and kicks all five field goals but the Bucs lose he sucks as a kicker. Shaq Barrett sucks too because despite his four sacks last Sunday the team lost. This franchise has a horrible GM, has a lack of talent in multiple areas, DBs that can stop anyone, and a never ending carousel of kickers that can’t make kickers but it’s all on Jameis. Doesn’t hold wait buddy. If that is the case, Vea, Mike Evans, David, Godwin, Howard, Barrett, all suck because the team keeps losing with them on the team.

  23. Asdf Says:

    Great point RustyRhinos. Jameis just hasn’t proven he can carry a team and raise the level of everyone around him. If he takes up more cap space we are going to have to make cuts elsewhere and then we’re just doomed to mediocre performance AT BEST.

    Unless we can get a proven vet it’s time to draft and play a cheap new QB with potential and invest elsewhere (with a new GM hopefully – a guy can dream right?!).

  24. Oneilbucs Says:

    Anthem it doesn’t matter how good Jamies plays. You guys are going to try and find a reason to blame him for something. And when you look at Matt Ryan if Jamies has been playing like him yall will be killing him right now. Jamies had a better game than Wentz had on Thursday night. Wentz has a better running game than Jamies but if it wasn’t for the running game they would have lost . Wentz had 161 yards Jamies had 380 yards both had 3 touchdown passes but Jamies TDs passes had way more yards than Wentz. Jamies put this team in position to win but Jamies is not the kicker. I have a good feeling that Jamies ain’t going nowhere from Tampa bay if he keeps playing like he has the pass 2 games. But I can remember when all yall said that yall hope he plays well and yall will give him his props . But it is proven that yall hope he fails because of your hate for him . You guys rather to see us lose with Jamies then win !!!! Yall are a bunch of fake fans. Go root for another team cause Jamies ain’t going nowhere!!! Lol lol lol lol

  25. Oregonbucsfan Says:

    WOW! Ndog, channeling his best NOSBOS imitation, is out today with a full-throated defense of Famous Jameis’ first half performance. Yes, jameis played his best football EVER in the first half last week. The second half he reverted to his bad self. And, THAT IS THE PROBLEM! He is horribly inconsistent. Good 2-3 throws and then a TD missed or a stupid int.
    Will these apologists ever realize that it is a full game performance that defines a QB. And, wins. Wins count you know. (See Brad Johnson)
    Sorry, 390 yards doesn’t mean squat if you are so inconsistent that the coach takes the football out of his hands at the crucial time.
    I contend it is homers like Ndog and the (missing) NOSBOS that allow the Glaziers to keep putting out this crap season after season. It works for Ndog so it’s OK. Right.

  26. Beligerentbuc Says:

    If the kick was made, we would be all be eating humble pie. When we beat the Rams it’s going to give this team and fanbase a boost that it so desperately needs. (I know i know, if my sister had balls, she’d be my brother…If’s)

    Licht has brought in the talent…coaching is not his fault. Also, people forget that Arians was his only hire. He was hired when Lovie was coach and the Glazers promoted Kotter against Licht’s advise, mind you.

    This team is going to light it up as we put it together. The NFL is broken down in to quarters and our first quarter results will be 2-2, not 1-3.

  27. Son of Kobe Faker Says:


    Using OJ Howard is stealing?

    Then how come our Arizona QB Intern gave him 0 targets vs the Panthers?

    Did you even watch the attached video? In that one it shows him hitting OJ in stride? He hit MULTIPLE guys in stride including two TDs and a bomb to Evans. What are you guys even watching? It’s like you are watching a different game than everyone else. Or your just don’t what you are watching. I vote for the second option after seeing your posts

  29. webster Says:

    Dumbest fan base. Wentz threw for 160 yards on thursday. Is that a “game manager”?

  30. orlbucfan Says:

    Difference in the last game was 1 point. Gay blew 5 points. Offense sure as hell’s bells didn’t lose that one. I would like to see BA/BL scheme up some 2-minute offensive plays for Fameis and Co. If Ungodly has to sit this one out, so be it. ME13, Brate, OJ and the RBs can all catch the ball. The ST needs to get its act together. If this can happen, we’ll beat the Rams in the desert heat–it will be hot, too.

  31. Grt1 Says:

    Damn people are just so ugly these days. Just look at all these stupid , uninformed and ugly comments. Man society is doomed. Just root for your squad win or lose man.

    Again more proof of you not knowing what you are talking about, he threw one bad pass in the 49er game. ONE and that was a bad one yes but the Sherman pick was on Barber and the other one was on OJ. Those are the FACTS you might not like them cause they don’t fit your small minded narrative but that doesn’t make them untrue. I am so sick and tired of complete and utter idiots come on here and spewing lies just they don’t understand the game.

  33. I've had it Says:

    Hate all of you haters. You’re not even fans. Kill yourselves. Thanks. Jameis will be a success in this leavue

  34. BA FAN Says:

    Every time I hear the Haters’ mantras that the Glazers are cheap (False Assertion—just look at the millions they have just spent to allow BA twice the number of Asst. Coaches than other Franchises), that Jameis will never be a Franchise QB (False Too—He will be one here or end up winning a Super Bowl with another team after we cut him, just like Williams, Young, and Dilfer), and the Bucs will never get out of the cellar. (Wrong—We will this year)

  35. jmarkbuc Says:



    The bigger question is who would trade with us for JW? I’ll wait…..

  36. jmarkbuc Says:

    And Again…..

    What would we do without Ndog’s eternal wisdom to explain football to us?

  37. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Can I go all Rodney King. “Can’t we all just get along”.

    I certainly respect, encourage, and enjoy difference of opinion. Can we differ without making so many personal and hyperbolic ad hominem insults.

    I’m probably in the middle of the scale of JW support. I like him, root for him, I’m not a hater but I’m not a blind apologist either.

    JW has clearly done some excellent things…he’s done some unimaginably stupid stuff as well. IMHO the final verdict is still being determined….THIS season…right NOW.

    Both sides of the debate make good points…but IMHO it’s starting to grow boring. Almost as bad as Johnny One Note Tmax. I already know what he’s posting tomorrow and again on Monday..Tuesday…saves me time reading the same thing over and over and over again.

    JW IS OUR QB. He is not going anywhere in the immediate future. He is our QB NOW. So I shall root for him. I HOPE he gains enough consistency to become a top tier QB. If he does great…if not..I’ll move on.

    Whatever the result we are beginning to beat a dead horse here whether supporting or trashing JW. It’s all been said a 1000 times before.

    Those on the support JW side will be happy if JW has a good season and gets another contract. If he fails the “haters” will be happy. Neither side is going to be happy until the end of the season. That’s just the way it is.

  38. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Can’t we all just get along?……..Stealing my plea, St. Pete.

  39. jmarkbuc Says:


    With all due respect…

    ‘IMHO the final verdict is still being determined”… Again, just like last year…

    “I’m probably in the middle of the scale of JW support. I like him, root for him, I’m not a hater but I’m not a blind apologist either.”

    …and six days ago you were Mad as Hell..and not gonna take it anymore, JW being the primary reason (remember that senseless INT)?

    Really not Rodney King…more like Waffle House

  40. RustyRhinos Says:

    Yeah I hear y’all. But what is the reason for playing football? To participate? Or to dominate? Which would you rather have? I do know it is a team game. Yes there are 51 other players on our team. We signed the #1 pick in the 2014 draft. In year five we still dont know which QB will show up on the field. The Good, the Bad, or the ugly. How is that not a part of what “he” the “franchise QB” delivers on the field? Is it the Defense who is throwing the most INT’s since 2014? Or the Defense who fumbles the Ball? I get that the defense has not done much to help create Wins. We all want to win and as the previous coach said that is the only stat that matters. Especially if you are the #1 pick in the draft.
    Why is it not about the cap Tmaxcon, we resign Winston to a Big contract we will be in a tough spot to improve the entire team. What happens if we sign Winston to another 5 year contract and he again is in first place in INT’s and fumbles? Nothing? I hear you and your blasts about this player and that player salaries and them not earning their pay. Why does this not apply to the one person on the team of 52 who touches the ball the most? $30,000,000 a season for a QB who has lead “his” team to the record he has produced? I hope he gets better and he can string together a winning season. If not, we need to cut bait and try again.

  41. D1 Says:

    This notion that Winston is a Game Manager is preposterous!

    As is the nonsensical connection between passing yards and who is defined as a Game Manager. Game Managers don’t throw x number of yards in a game. Or Game Managers throw x .

    The problem with that line of thinking is pretty g#d damned obvious. So figure it out.

    But it begs the question, how can anyone claim that their more intelligent than everyone else and present such a weak azz arguement. An arguement that is so fundamentally flawed that it shouldn’t even be presented yet alone debated..

    But if you did present it, then be smart enough to understand what the problem is, identify it, and define it going forward. Then at least it’s possible to maintain an illusion of intelligence.

    It’s like watching 2 hobos fight over an empty bottle of mad dog.

  42. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Thats hilarious. Do me a favor and google game managing QB. I did it for fun and is clearly defined as a QB that doesn’t throw for a lot of yards or TDs. So smart guy what say you?????

  43. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Maybe you just never knew what the term means and funny to read your ignorant statement and say it with such determination.

  44. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Oh I should include the last part of that definition. They often win die to a strong defense and running game. So the morons claiming he is a game manager aren’t even close to accurate

  45. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    “Lazy Journalism spreads like STDs

    I writer posts a article about JW3 being a “game manager” or “BA doesnt trust him”

    and the blind sheep believe its gospel

    like big Donnie says

    Low Football IQ”

    Son of a whistleblower

  46. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    D1 – Also when you are trying to point out how ignorant everyone else is try to be articulate. It is “they’re” not “their.’’ Now finish off you Mad Dog and go to sleep!

  47. D1 Says:


    I’ll try to explain the problem with the argument.

    Winston passed for 380yds last game. By defintion, He can’t be called a game manager. Correct?

    Stay with me,
    2 weeks ago winston passed for 200yds. So He’s a game Manager, right?

    No, He’s not. Even if his passing yds in a game are game mgr.

    Its an insult to your intelligence explaining such a basic premise any further.
    I believe you can get to the conclusion on your own.

    BTW, I don’t know what you were thinking that you had to Google it. Clearly, you didn’t understand that the subject was the argument not winston or whatever label you supported. The Google search should have been helpful but you have to approach correctly.

  48. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    You sir are a moron! Your rambling is ridiculous. He played like a game manager in game two. When Winston is unleashed and plays his best he is an elite QB. I want him playing like a franchise QB and I can take an occasional pick if he will throw 3 TDs and throw for 380.

  49. DB55 Says:

    Lol. You guys are funny. We need a jbf battle royal.

  50. Capt. Tim Says:

    Love to see all the Jameis support.
    Whats Winstons QB rating, over the last 4 years?
    Whats his record?

    Hey, Who doesnt love people who fight for a lost cause!
    Very sympathetic of you. And the playoffs are probably overrated anyway.
