    anyone confident in this washed up has been that never was is either on the glazer retirement train with him or related to the old fool

    Doesnt matter who the coach is when your GM is a glorified scout.

    Good players > Good Coaching

    Difficult to go to NC…but LC has passed him by

  4. Buddy Says:

    If anyone has confidence in the fraud that is Grandpa Bucco Bruce Turk you are blind!! He has done nothing to show confidence in him. He now blames everyone but himself. Blame the refs, blame the dbs, blame the wrs, how about blaming yourself Brucie-you don’t have it anymore more. Stay home

  5. Pete Mitchell Says:

    Hey Joe’s

    I know you don’t like too many links but…

    I’m going to leave this right here:

    Joe has seen it, analyzed the available info and does not believe it is Licht. Similar voice, though.–Joe

  6. tmaxcon Says:

    licht sucks no doubt but the franchise has been an embarrassment long before licht who are you blaming for the other 37 bad years

  7. Deminion Says:

    bust for Burrow!!!

  8. catcard202 Says:

    Not giving up on BA or staff…But have no confidence in ownership or FO’s ability to ability to assemble a winning organization around them.

  9. Sport Says:

    Cry me a river Buddy. The guy is allowed to speak his mind. I’m guessing you don’t have a job, or had one, as a head coach in the NFL. Ours has been coach of the year twice. Just because you whine and don’t handle your emotions like adult, doesn’t make you right.

    In BA I Trust!

  10. SteveK Says:


    Thanks for replying about bar stools claim. It’s rather fascinating. I wonder if any subject matter experts can provide further analysis: voice, ip address.

    Does Licht have a brother who likes FSU football? 😂

  11. Deminion Says:

    I like BA I just don’t think we have the talent to win or the QB I think guys lost faith in him like many fans have.

  12. tmaxcon Says:

    based on early voting returns I think you can certify bucfan has the dumbest fans on earth…. there should not be a single confident vote and certainly not totally confident those fools need to join vh3bust slinging junkfood at the quicky mart

  13. Buc believer Says:

    Can we have a HELL no?

  14. tmaxcon Says:


    feel good awards and popularity contests are meaningless and designed for chick flick loving losers like yourself….. super bowls are the goals not pro bowls not popularity contests…. the old washed up bum has a losing record in the post season just like that other one dimensional bum dungy the clown.

    coach of the year lol….

  15. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Next time for the Jason Licht poll Joe, you can just leave out the confident section.

    Jason Licht
    – Little confidence
    – No confidence

  16. tmaxcon Says:

    joe i see 67 confident votes any idea when the other half of the staff will be voting confident….

  17. Son of Kobe Faker Says:

    “The BS and Gimp twins will be here for at least 3 more years

    I hope the old time posters can hang on til we get a new GM and HC in 2023

    Go Keto”

    Son of Kobe Faker

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    the glazers have hired 6 regimes and got 1 good year out of all of them…. stop blaming licht and the washed up old guys they are victims of pathetic owners… NO ONE HAS EVER WON CONSISTENTLY IN TAMPA EVER….. That is undisputed…. one hit wonder bands have better followups than the bucs one year wonders who luckily won a fluke championship. that highly ranked defense was legendary at choking in the post season and never mustered more than 1 palyoff win in a year until gruden gave them the raiders playbook and he cleaned up dungy’s mess….

    no coach or gm can fix the bucs. it’s impossible. Madonna has a better chance of getting her virginity back than bucs ever winning a meaningful game….

  19. SteveK Says:

    On Twitter Jameis1of1 and Jason Licht both have Somali phone numbers registered to their profiles- with same last two digits. And it sounds like him.

    I wouldn’t doubt it one bit. I hope this gets looked into more.

  20. Bucsfanman Says:

    Total confidence in Arians. Now, the rest of them I’m not so sure.
    Keep in mind last place defense two years in a row, lack of depth and talent at certain key positions, no money, a change in philosophy, and a turnover-prone QB.
    I know we’re all tired and impatient from losing but he’s not a miracle worker! This team has issues!

  21. SteveK Says:

    Just googled video search for jameis1of1. There are two interviews about his book and the Bucs. They are long, and they sound just like Licht! Even the way he says “um” and tone usage. It’s licht in my opinion.

  22. Mike Johnson Says:

    Poor Buc fans. We lash our yearly at any sacrifice we think is the blame. You gave Koetter 3 yrs. So give Arians at least that. Losing makes everybody included. Arians won’t let this team stay this way next season. Even if he has to have a few knock down dragouts with his road dog..Licht. I have always been skeptical of Buc coaches righting the ship. But I am confident id it can be done? Arians is the man.

  23. tmaxcon Says:


    you know I have mad respect for you madam and would actually even buy you a well drink…. so please please please help me, have you not witnessed all the sideline blunders from BA???? Don’t tell me you are naive enough to fall for his nonstop BS… please explain…. you take jameis out of the mix and BA has been a disaster all on his own bad clock management, not overriding is ignorant OC targeting miller i can go on all day… come on dude I know you are smarter than that…. the only person more lost than BA is that bust first round pick white….

  24. tmaxcon Says:

    Mike Johnson

    you said I was harsh and mean I believe… I still stand by the fact that I am right….

  25. ClodHopper Says:

    I’ve been confident all year. today i dropped her down to no confidence. The culture has whooped his butt and hes acting he dont care that hes losing the culture wars. In the boxing match with the culture, hes down for the count!

    Everyone has a plan until the culture curse punches them in the mouth.

  26. ElBajito43 Says:

    I remember last week the results were very confident and confident. Papa BWUCY BWuce is like one poster said….. “A FIGUREHEAD” a “MENTOR” the guy is not even calling plays for goodness sake! Thanks Glazers for keeping “TRASH” LICHT just so we could hire PAPA BWUCY BWUCE to babysit Winsty-Pooh.
    Meanwhile the team around him falls apart because Lichtenstein is and always will be INCOMPETENT.
    Great gig tho, I kinda admire Jason for milking another big contract extension and shoving Koetter under the bus while staying out of the way.

  27. doctor_berto Says:

    Josh Allen is seventh in the NFL with 7.0 sacks. Meanwhile, Devin White has been a non factor. THIS IS WHY THE BUCS CONTINUE TO SUCK

  28. Allbuccedup Says:

    I am confident we will have another top 5 pick thanks BS.

  29. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    He is the Barry Melrose of football and they both stole money from the Tampa Bay Sports community while riding golf carts one wore a kangol one wore a mullet but they both were bad hires

  30. DooshLaRue Says:

    Voted confident all season….until today.

    Little Confidence.

    He needs to take over play calling ASAP.

  31. Allbuccedup Says:

    If he takes over the play calling he can’t blame Leftwich.

  32. D-Rome Says:

    Pete Mitchell,

    That is my favorite Bucs story of the year by far, even if it’s fake news.

  33. D-Rome Says:

    For the record, I’m TOTALLY CONFIDENT that the Bucs should bring in the HAZMAT team and disinfect One Buc. New GM, new coach, and new QB.

  34. 813bucboi Says:


    GO BUCS!!!!

  35. Bucsfanman Says:

    tmax- I will admit that there have been some questionable calls. From my standpoint though, we’re all of 7 games in with a new HC who has taken over a historically gawd-awful football team. Like the “lost” MLB I expected growing pains.
    I’d happily take you up on that drink! And BTW, it’s MR. “madam” to you!

  36. Mike Johnson Says:

    Deeyham D-Rome..Already? Don’t Arians get another yr or 2?

  37. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    steve k right on

  38. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Not to worry Bucs fans…..we will let Jameis101 lead us to the promise Land!

  39. JGhoti86 Says:

    My how the tides have turned in 8 short weeks!

    I just want to win, that’s all. Never mind consistently, I’ll just take one season and a playoff appearance at this point.

  40. Anonymous Says:


    If Licht is the author then WOW!

    It would explain a the motive: defend your draft pick. Did Licht go to the Pitt-FAU game for Jameis’ debut? The author said he was at the game

    If Licht was there, then boom sealed.

  41. SteveK Says:

    Did Licht go to Jameis’ college debut in 2013- FSU at Pitt? The author states they were there.

    That would seal it for me.

  42. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    I’m confident he’s padding his retirement, great at riding a golf cart and taking naps during practice

    No confidence he can cash all the checks his mouth has ran since he’s been here

  43. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    SteveK… is really a strange coincidence

  44. SteveK Says:

    This is worth investigating. Licht and jameis1of1 have coincidences.

  45. Buddy Says:

    @Sport-so did Lovie, Mike Smith, Jim Harbaugh, Ron Rivera Jason Garret and Matt Nagy last year. So like i said Bucco Bruce hasn’t won anything as a HC,
    Coach of the year means NOTHING!!!None of those guys have won a SBowl and neither has Grandpa Bruce

  46. 911BUCS Says:

    Wow, how feelings change in a week.

  47. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    tmaxcon is a voice crying into the wind. No one even cares to listen anymore.

  48. Sport Says:

    TrollA$& – it takes zero talent to tear down or throw stones. And your comment to Mike Johnson being proud of ‘being harsh’ confirms you are just a lowly Troll and a Giant A$&. Instead of incessant whining, offer up some solutions. Because until your tune changes, I will be skipping over your posts.

    Buddy, I’d also like to know your solutions. You don’t have anywhere near the track record of being an absolute troll like the now written off one above. I will be giving BA an opportunity to give us a winner. Which in includes, not being strangled by the cap ( next year ~$75 below the cap), and at least three drafts and three full seasons to get his guys. Unfortunately, JW decision making,l and draft picks not playing up to there draft status (at least 3 yrs in the league, I don’t expect rookies and second year guys to take over any team).

    In BA I Trust!

  49. Buddy Says:

    @Sport- How’s that “trust in BA” working out for ya??? 2-5 about to be 2-6 LOLOLOL

  50. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs should win at least 4 more games considering the glut of lousy competition at the bottom of the standings.

  51. D-Rome Says:

    Mike Johnson, I don’t have an issue with Arians. It’s just that it’s been often reported that “No Licht, no Arians” and that he isn’t here for a rebuild. The team needs to move on from Jay-Miss and Jason Licht. If that means Arians will no longer stay then so be it.

  52. NPRSageBoy Says:

    With his reputation in tatters after aligning with this sinking ship, He’ll be gone in January citing health issues.

    Peace, out.

  53. tmaxcon Says:


    mr madam… lol every year the dysfunction of this origination is far more entertaining than the on field product. hopefully that will change with the move to london.

  54. tmaxcon Says:

    sport o

    by the way I have been going back and forth with Mr Mike Johnson for years. he and I don’t agree but he damn sure is not a delusional optimist so I enjoy a little banter with him from time to time… maybe up your meds a little and you can laugh at a few things instead of clinging to false hope and unicorns….

    i have been criticized for saying the exact same thing for months… proving once again visionaries and geniuses like myself are always ridiculed by the delusional optimists.

  56. Marlow1976 Says:

    I was confident in all the previous coaches too. We just have a crappy roster. How long can a roster underperform and one still blame coaching?

  57. Bucsfanman Says:

    tmax- I didn’t anticipate this much so soon, but you’re right. Any time a fanbase is talking draft picks in October, something is terribly wrong.

  58. Defense Rules Says:

    Obviously lots of Bucs’ fans REALLY DOWN on this club. Guess being 2-5 almost halfway through the season will do that to folks. And admittedly I get that same way during & immediately after losses. But when I look in-depth at each game, win or lose, I can always come to the conclusion that things weren’t as bad as what I thought they were OR as good as I thought they were.

    Not into excuses, but it is fun to try to look at WHY WE WON OR LOST. Some games are blow-outs admittedly (remember the Chicago game last year?), but not all that often. Even when there’s say a 14 point difference in the final score, oftentimes the game turned on 1 or 2 mistakes by one team. And usually it comes down to turnovers. A positive TURNOVER DIFFERENTIAL is usually the major catalyst for victory from what I’ve seen.

    Disregard for a moment the REASONS for the turnovers; just accept that they happened & see what the impact is.

    Game 1: 49ers 31 – Bucs 17. Bucs had 4 TOs; SF had 2 TOs, so the 49ers had a Plus 2 differential. We had more 1st downs than they did, we rushed for more yards, we passed for more yards, we had fewer penalties, TOP was almost exactly identical (30:04 to 29:56), 3rd & 4th down conversions were identical (5-for-13). Bucs scored 1 TD (Pick-6) off of Garoppolo’s 1 INT, but got nothing off the 49ers other TO. 49ers got nothing off of Jameis’ 1st INT, but scored a TD (Pick-6) off of Jameis’ 2nd INT at the start of the 3rd qtr, and then ANOTHER TD (Pick-6) off of Jameis’ 3rd INT. OJ’s fumble didn’t hurt us (because of VHIII’s Pick-6 on the following 49ers drive). Thus the difference in the game was the Plus 2 TO differential.

    Almost every game has had similar results. We beat the Panthers in Game 2 … we won the TO battle 1 to 0. We SHOULD have beaten the Giants in Game 3 (I’m still not over that loss) & again we won the TO battle 2 to 1. We beat the Rams handily in Game 4, and won the TO battle 4 to 1. We lost to the Saints in Game 5 even though we won the TO battle 1 to 0 (hey they’re a better team). But then then we lose to the Panthers in Game 6 and got absolutely trounced in the TO battle 7 to 1, and also lost to the Titans in Game 7 after getting trounced once again in the TO battle 4 to 1.

    The REASON we’re 2-5 instead of 5-2 and possibly even 6-1 is because of TURNOVERS. The Bucs’ TEAM that beat the Rams 55-40 and won that TO battle 4 to 1 is pretty much the same team that lost to the Panthers 37-26 in Game 6 and lost the TO battle 7 to 1. Feast or famine. Same QB, same RBs, same WRs, same TEs, pretty much the same OLine. But a very much different quality of play on the field.

    There’s no question in my mind that the 49ers, Panthers, Saints & Titans have excellent defenses (Giants’ defense is the exception if you look at our 5 losses). Our offense simply doesn’t respond well against quality defenses; never has actually since Jameis has been here. Bucs’ PREPARATION is obviously lacking in those games, but so is the offensive TALENT to play against the better defenses. That now won’t get fixed this year. HOPEFULLY our defense rises to the occasion and keeps creating turnovers of their own.

  59. ArgYeMaties Says:

    Now ask about the confidence in Leftwich (or however you spell it) or Bowles.

  60. Defense Rules Says:

    ArgYeMaties … I have ZERO (or less) confidence in Leftwich but total confidence in Todd Bowles. Less & less in Bruce Arians by the way.

    Hang in there through these last 9 games and watch what this defense becomes. Even through these last 3 losses they’ve steadily improved game by game. Look beyond the scores. Hard to excel when your offense turns the ball over 11 times in the last 2 games.

  61. Sport Says:

    Whoops Buddy… your emotions drove your response. I didn’t see any suggestions. I wish you all the best.

    Damn DR. You are at the top of heep. You Sir have effort, common sense and smarts. Keep up the good work!

    In BA I Trust!
