Buccaneers 28, Jaguars 11

December 1st, 2019

Our beloved Buccaneers are now 5-7 and have won three of their last four games, and for the first time this season they have a two-game winning streak.

Pop the champagne!

Pour the Big Storm!

Tampa Bay played a good half of football and, thankfully, it was enough after a sad second half.

A career day for receiver Brashad Perriman (5 catches, 87 yards) and more excellent play from Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, plus a rather efficient no-interception day from America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, was a wonderful complement to a special day for the Bucs defense.

Leonard Fournette didn’t hurt them and Nick Foles looked like a junior varsity QB playing in his first game. The Bucs’ pass rush had him rattled early before QB Gardner Minshew replaced him and gave Jacksonville a spark.

Shaq Barrett racked up two more sacks, a strip, four quarterback hits and probably another couple of million bucks this offseason.

Devin White added a scoop-and-score and an interception, and more confidence as he continues to surge.

The young Bucs secondary had rough moments, but Sean Murphy-Bunting had what could have been a game-saving interception of Gardner Minshew and overall the group certainly did enough. Joe’s hoping Jamel Dean’s shoulder injury isn’t serious.

Next Sunday the Bucs get a struggling Colts team (6-6) that got blown out at home today by the Titans.

Who’s ready for three in a row???

    Players deserve all the credit. Play calling was a notch above Pee Wee.

  10. ChanEpic Says:

    That’s 2 in a row!!!!!! Let’s go!

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Nice team win. Got a little dicey in the 2nd half.

    BL play calling seems to go down the gutter once the script runs out, but we got away with a nice win regardless.

    Bonus points for watching all the trolls and haters have a complete meltdown watching the offense and defense both play well.

    Suck it

  12. unbelievable Says:

    Off to moderation again I see.

    Sorry I guess if I was a troll who chit all over this team every Sunday my comments would actually be allowed.

  13. Bucnjim Says:

    The secret to success in the NFL is no secret. Don’t turn the ball over and create turnovers! Whoa what do you know Bucs win!

  14. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Winston is still hot garbage



    almost another 2 more fumbles

  15. unbelievable Says:

    Well fk it, I’ll just go ahead and say to Bandit, Anthem, Jean and the rest of the morons who pretend to be fans:

    SUCK IT!

  16. Jean Lafitte Says:

    If less points is the tradeoff for less turnovers …I’ll take it

  17. unbelievable Says:

    Oh man now we’re calculating “almost fumbles”


    Anthem you’re such a fkn loser

  18. orlbucfan Says:

    We will win the final 4 games in spite of BA still not calling QB scrambling/no huddle calls. 9-7 I will take it. 🙂

  19. unbelievable Says:

    Bucs Win!

    All that matters. Have a nice day suckas

  20. R.O. Says:

    Most of you just like whine and complain no matter what. You whine when they win a game where they led from beginning to end. You whine and cry when they lose.

  21. Patrick in SC Says:

    People talk about blowing draft position in an effort to learn how to win games that will hopefully roll into the next season. This is the first year that I’ve bought into that. It looks like they are legitimately learning to play the game correctly.

    Now if they would just stop taking the foot off the gas and stop playing the game not to lose, maybe we won’t have to have a clearly won game end up so close

  22. mark2001 Says:

    Man..if we only had a QB like Ryan Fitzpatrick, we could beat the Eagles, and not just the Jags.

  23. Chimichanga Says:

    @BucsBandit mad because his Winston INT watch ended up with a flat donut.

  24. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    can’t defend not scoring in the 2nd half

    poor decision making as well

    trying to be superman again…..stupid

    ALL QBs get hit and sacked. It’s the NFL. There are elite athletes on every Defensive Line in the NFL. They get to the QB.

    But that gets worse if a QB holds the ball too long on avergae, which Winston definitely does.

    How many times I see the line just let the pass rushers into the backfield and Winston has no time. Your words are meaningless. The best QBs in the league are not under siege the whole game. Winston handled the pass rush better today. He kept his eyes downfield. Only one turn over. I’ll take that.

  27. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Did we just quit on offense in the 2nd half……that’s not the first time this has happened……could not run the ball…..

  28. Mort Says:

    A W is a W, and the defense is starting to round into shape here.

  29. mark2001 Says:

    Orl… no team runs the No Huddle exclusively, because when your D is on the field the lions share of the game every game, you wear out and can’t win.

    It isn’t just about what best suits Jameis, because if that is what it takes for Jameis to win, he can’t be a successful NFL QB.

  30. LongSeason Says:

    Forgot to put BucsBandit before How Many… in my last post.

  31. Pa bucs fan Says:

    Anthem and bandit are troll trash fans with little no football knowledge. Jean thinks putting up 17 points with bo picks and winning by 2 scores isnt good enough.

    This is one of the must toxic cesspool of fake fans I ever seen.

    Go buc! Some of us actually root for u.

  32. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    Figures someone bought my ticket to the Colts game next week…lol. Maybe I can find a cheap one.

  33. Bobby Says:

    Pitiful trolls on here. I’ll just take the win. The defense should be winning games. They’ve lost more than a few for us. They get turnovers and the offense scores points. That’s called complimentary football.

  34. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Offense still win this game no matter what you clowns say. 17 always trumps 11 points any day. The offense wasn’t spectacular but efficient in the 1st half. You can lie all you want about Jameis but the 2nd half let down was all on the play calling. I was all in going for it on 4th down. Put the nail in the coffin and play keep away. O line blocking messed that up

  35. Pa bucs fan Says:

    Yeah, bobby gets it. Team sport. Wins when played like a full team.

  36. SteveK Says:

    We need to pay a Rollie QB and spend the rest of the cap on D. Jameis isn’t worth the franchise tag. Shaq Barrett is.

  37. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Late season wins are meaningless. JW sucks and so does Leftwich. Don’t get me started on Licht.

  38. bojim Says:

    Bucs win and there’s still complaints? Two almost fumbles? lol. Why are you people here?

  39. SteveK Says:

    Winston isn’t good enough for us to win a super bowl with.

    Sorry. Just not. Look at the past five years. No damn playoffs once. He’s not the truth.

  40. MtBucsfan Says:

    Cant wait to see winston balling next year!!

  41. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Good win! Suck it Jameis Bashers!

  42. Buccfan37 Says:

    Wow two games in a row I’m getting lightheaded.

  43. SteveK Says:

    Not complaining about almost fumbles, complaining that the play isn’t good enough to win a super with. And he’s a first overall pick in year five. Either you’re a rock star or you’re not.

  44. Rick Says:

    good win. Jw was careful with the ball, run game was decent. Defense was stout! Secondary was locked in. just a really good team win.

  45. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Ha ha ha stinkin panthers lost!!!

  46. Bucnjim Says:

    A win makes the whole week better and gives us something to look forward to. The defense looks a little better every game and it looks like
    Winston is starting to limit the high risk plays. Now all I need is a couple of fantasy football victories to complete my already great Sunday.

  47. firethecannons Says:

    Bucs win by 3 scores, stop btching! Go Bucs!

  48. Jean Lafitte Says:

    good win

  49. SteveK Says:

    Playoffs this year for Jameis!???!! Why not! It’s year five. Show me. We are 5-8. Woohoo

  50. SteveK Says:


  51. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Just once, I’d like to see us put our foots on the throats of our opponents and keep scoring……3 points in the 2nd half on that team is pathetic.

    But, I’ll certainly take the win.

    Our young DBs are playing and Devin White is the real deal.

  52. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Steve K this o line isn’t good enough to win a bowl with. Shore that up Winston can, but I can’t say will win at this time. There is no other qb available in free agency that is any better than him.

  53. SteveK Says:

    Just so confused about Winston. We can’t win a super bowl w him. And we can’t pay him franchise tag money. He ain’t taking us into the playoffs in five years.

  54. Nptbuc Says:

    Do any of you stat geeks have a guess on average yds gained on between the tackles runs? You would think that we are super successful with running up the gut the way that Leftwich calls that run! There may have been a couple of big gainers ( 4-5 yd runs ) but I can’t recall them. Seems like what few holes the O line opens are on the right side. Maybe we should try to hammer that side for a while? I love the fact that we won another one but can we PLEASE get a little more innovative with our run game? I think it would help some. I hope that Dean is ok. Smith was not able to keep up with receivers today. That only spells trouble. We almost let the Jags back in today. GO BUCKS!!

  55. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Steve K is so furious because Jameis ruined his day

  56. JimmyJack Says:

    So much for congratulating the Bucs. Too many bad comments to argue with here.

    I just won’t address this. I’ll say my piece on the next article.

    GO BUCS!

  57. crazyBucs_CL Says:

    @BucsBandit Says:
    “WINSTON: 1 Turnover, 0 TDs. Only leads Offense to 17 points.

    GRADE: D”
    Yes, I hope everyone see that this was a defense win AGAIN, and don’t get fooled.
    JW has nothing to do with this win….. any average QB could have done the same or better. He MUST go!

    BA = LovieS 2.0

  58. SteveK Says:


    Good points. I just think a sixth year would bring another lost year with arguing about whether Jameis is any good or not. I’m not a believer. Haven’t seen the consistency and I don’t believe we will win a championship w that.

  59. Simeon Says:

    Sorry, but why should we be excited? They aren’t making the playoffs, surprised everyone watched with so many other good games on.

  60. Hamsadwitchtime Says:

    @steveK they are not getting a rookie bonehead! Love these people that think he had a lousy game.. what a joke! He got us I position to score be it pass or rush. Go find another team

  61. SteveK Says:

    Jameis almighty,

    Not upset at all. Wearing my Jameis jersey and happy my team won!

    I just think we are not going to the playoffs if we keep Jameis. He’s too inconsistent. I personally cringe at all the turnovers.

    I just don’t see the wins and the ability to consistently lead your team to victory. Too streaky.

  62. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Tbbf that’s what going gir it on 4th illusions of kicking the field goal was all about. The non blocking on it messed everything up plus a receiver not going all out on 3rd that would have given us a 1st also. Turtle shell offense finished it off

  63. SteveK Says:

    Not a lousy game!

    Just can’t pay $27 million of salary cap for a QB that is a turnover machine.

    Godwin and Evans are elite.

    What could a rookie or a vet QB on a cheap contract produce in the same circumstances?

  64. Deez days Says:

    Impressed by jameis play this game … no TDS no turnovers … just smart play… if he does this the last 4 games I’ll be one to give my vote for a return

  65. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Nice win !
    See what happens when the Bucs keep the ball out of Jameis’s hands

  66. Deez days Says:

    Excuse me no INTs

  67. SteveK Says:

    Ham sandwich,

    We can’t pay top
    Dollar for the turnovers. We will never ever go
    To the playoffs.

  68. Pewter power Says:

    I didnt realize ALMOST was a stat in the nfl!!! No one talked about the 5 ints matt ryan almost threw last week. Some of you jokers just seem more happy to complain when we lose.

    FYI Winston will be franchised. BA will go with the known and not trust playoffs to a rookie quarterback but will have one on the bench in a break glass in case of emergency situation. No interceptions but guess winston is the only one that overthrows receivers.

  69. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Jameis played game manager today, limited his turnovers and contributed to the win.

    Good job Jameis.

  70. Hamsadwitchtime Says:

    @steve… most likely nothing. Give Winston a D like today and running game and we will be just find. Was around Sind 76’ and you must have forgotten or not been around for our 10 point games. Last few years most productive in Bucs history! Fact

  71. SteveK Says:

    We won’t go to the playoffs if we pay Jameis $27 million next year. Too inconsistent. I’m ready for someone new! Five years no playoffs and not a considerable improvement. What’s to think he’d suddenly correct the turnovers and get us to the playoffs in year six? Can’t waste another year. Deja voodoo would be bad news bears.

  72. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Don’t be fooled by a couple decent games from Jay Miss. We have 5 years of evidence of what he is. A leopard does not change its spots. With that being said, nice team win today against a crappy football team.

  73. SteveK Says:


    I understand, but the fans need to know that defensive football is extinct in the NFL. Rules are made for offenses to thrive and with that I set my
    Expectation, coupled with draft investment, for the QB to take us to the playoffs by now. Or at least turn it over much much less.

  74. Big_Buc$ Says:

    It’s a win at the end of the day folks. You keep trying to find something to blame Jameis for every week. I don’t care who the QB is but with that offensive line it’s going to always be no push in the running game and terrible pass protection. If that’s isn’t addressed I will truly question the organization by saying they just want to collect that TV revenue. Welp the worst they can go is 5-11 and some folks hoping that happens but let this sink in last week at 4-7 you had the 12 pick. That means it’s a lot of bad teams. They win 2 more games that means Jameis is 90% going to get franchised tag jus getting to 7 wins or better.

  75. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    SteveK me too. I see it all as well but I also see the really good that he does. I don’t have rose colored glasses on but as long as he’s the qb on my team I want him to get better and my boys to win. He plays with all the heart and passion of any player I’ve ever seen. It’s not like he’s Trent Doofler! If you notice this year there were a number of games that Jameis played very well and had us in the position to win but the defense was as protective of that lead like wet toilet paper. Two games and the defense has played well AND protected the lead and we won. So there’s a glimmer of hope.

  76. Hamsadwitchtime Says:

    We have lost consistently because we have had the word D in NFL for years and no running game. Breeze when 7-9 with that logic. We are a top 5 offense. Sit back build D and RB and Enjoy!

  77. SteveK Says:

    Not blaming Jameis. Just not a belieber that playoffs would
    Come in hear six if they have not in the first five. Not inspired by the play enough to commit franchise tag money to. You franchise tag Shaq Barrett.

  78. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    There was a true gunslinger on the field today….

  79. SteveK Says:


    You’re spot on. After the Seattle game I started to believe in a Jameis turnaround but it didn’t stick. And I’m just not confident it will all click-consistently- enough to make the playoffs.

    And I agree there’s so much good. But the turnovers and the decision making and The inconsistency scare the hell out of me.

  80. SteveK Says:

    I think Jameis’ turnovers are a big factor
    Towards the “worst defense in the nfl” shtick. No
    Defense has to overcome more.

  81. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    There have been a lot of qbs that took longer than 5 years to put it all together. Winston might have become Americas Turnover Machine but Steve Young sucked as a Buc but went on to become a Hall of Famer. Will never say Winston will be but he is a baller and wants to be great for this team so I want him to be as well.

  82. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Drew Locke putting on a show in his first NFL start

  83. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Yawn who cares about Locke??? Boring! Try again

  84. Jean Lafitte Says:

    funny how RB Gordon was the talk of the town in San Diego but now with a below average oline he’s non existent

  85. Tval Says:

    Jameis made y’all bums mad. Lol!

  86. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    I’m inclined to believe that if the front and back halves of our schedule were reversed, we’d be poised for a playoff push right now. This team is starting to gel and the past couple weeks seem to be a slightly delayed result of our coaching moves. The players are progressing and for a change we are able to impose our will against inferior opponents. At this pace of improvement we’ll be winniing and gaining some great momentum into year 2 of Bruce!

  87. MtBucsfan Says:

    Exactly takes more than just a year of coaching for everyone to get on the same page. Next year will be great. That first half looked like the 02 bucs but with a offense!

  88. Defense Rules Says:

    Like Mort said, a win is a win. Too much of a replay of the Giants game though for my tastes … get a big lead in the 1st half, then play turtle the rest of the game. Fortunately our defense has grown quite a bit since that game & we held them to 11 points.

    First half was a great example of COMPLIMENTARY FOOTBALL IMO. Not only did the Bucs’ defense force 3 turnovers, but it even scored on one of them & provided the offense a short field so they could score easier also. Nice to jump out to a 15 point lead so quickly.

    Wouldn’t mind one bit bringing back that same starting defense next year, but augment it with better depth, such as adding a veteran CB & Safety. We could probably do just that for about $70-$80 mil (about $10-$20 mil above what we’re paying right now) and end up with a Top-10 or so defense.

  89. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    It’s funny the Chiefs have one of the best Qbs in the league who doesn’t turn the ball over but still only 7-4 and will not see the AFC Championship game. I wonder why that is? He had a great run game and decent special teams but I can’t understand why still have a hard time winning against good teams. Can someone tell me what the problem is? Some so called experts up here say it’s all Jaymiss’ fault so don’t know what it is.

  91. Cgmaster27 Says:

    Kind of sad even after a win we have to listen to the mindnumbing commentery of bucs anthem and his lacky bucs bandit. As ive said for weeks jameis will be back next year. Dont like it, pick a different team. You know its a good week when we hear of the stupid overthrow argument. Saw lamar jackson overthrow 3 revievers today, he must be garbage. You guys need new material.

  92. Cgmaster27 Says:

    @jeanlatiffe hes missed one game moron, whats the excuse for his other 3 losses?

    Am I the only one annoyed with this SteveK dude?? Get a life dude!

    2 games moron

  95. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    BA33 he’s not too bad. He wants to believe but suffers from the football version of PTSD….TMJTOs……..TooMany JameisTurnOvers. Can’t really blame him. He wants to be positive but at this time he’s positive we won’t win with the ATM. This defense keeps getting better the whole offense will and he will see it. He’s not like these miserable trolls who never say anything good.

  96. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Aww Jean La Pattitte!! Calling such basic names. You should lay off the keyboard little miss internet tuff girl and drink your little your fancy little Stella Etois 1% alcoholic drink in the darkness of your closet. Oh wait I forgot you’re tha big ol gangsta black man standing on the corner of your hood. You prawalee drink Steele Reserve and smoke some Swisher Sweets playing bones huh? Real gangsta with the name Jean La Patitte

  97. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    There are other players on this team not named Jameis that have contributed to 3 wins in the last 4. Face the facts, the Bucs are an improving team with Jameis leading the offense despite a terrible OLine. Carlton Davis is looking like a stand out DB. Go Bucs!

  98. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    We’re in it till we’re not. GO BUCS!!

  99. Oneilbucs Says:

    Man !!! Even when we win you same people complain about the quarterback. Now when we win it’s not because of Jamies he had nothing to do with the win but if we lose than it’s all his fault . Man want you guys do yourself a favor and us real fans a favor and just go root for another team. I don’t believe you guys are real bucs fan. I don’t care about when you guys talk I’ve been a fan for 30 or 40 years I think all of you Jamies haters are not real bucs fans. You guys say I just want the team to win and when we do win all you guys do is cry about Jamies. I got 1 question if they bring Jamies back are yall going to root for another team because it will be nice for the real fans????

  100. Bucc941 Says:

    But…. Minshew threw an interception

  101. IBelieveinJameis Says:

    So my name obviously explains my personal thoughts but I’m an equal opportunity basher too so here is an honest and hopefully balanced look at America’s QB:

    + Big arm
    + Athletic and can make plays with legs although not a running QB
    + Tough – the guy has gotten beaten up behind our O-Line and keeps getting up and chucking it. He’s willing to take a big hit to try to make a play
    + By most accounts, one of the first guys to practice and last ones to leave
    + Leadership has improved immensely
    + Involved in community and gives time back

    – CONSISTENCY – duh right? Maddeningly inconsistent game by game and sometimes play by play
    – Takes too many chances – still tries to thread the needle on throws either he’s not capable of making or his receivers can’t get or both
    – Game management – -plays the same way up 20 or down 10

    There are more but you get the idea. Although I am a fan of the guy, I do NOT think we should shell out $15-20M per to keep him.
