Penalty Prone

October 8th, 2020

The way this is going, Team Glazer may want to add a fourth uniform design to the Bucs’ ensemble: Flourescent yellow to acknowledge their penalty ways.

The Bucs went penalty crazy tonight. They got slapped with 109 yards worth of penalties, getting flagged 11 times.

For reasons not quite clear, per long-time NFL scribe Rick Gosselin, the Bucs have gone from rarely getting flagged, to always getting flagged nearly overnight.

The Bucs have 10 days to prepare for the Packers and per new NFL protocols to fight The Sickness, players cannot leave town, not even on a bye week or a long weekend.

Bucco Bruce Arians better figure out a way to cut down on these penalties. Joe doesn’t give a damn how many rings your quarterback has, if the team keeps shooting itself in the foot, it will give away games like they did tonight.

    Sloppy teams – another hallmark of Arians.

  2. Ndog Says:

    But but but we weren’t going to have penalities anymore cause we got rid of our QB?

    RIGHT GUYS?????

  3. unbelievable Says:

    But you and I both know the offsides on Barrett and the roughing the passer call on him were complete horse chit.

    And that directly resulted in 14 points instead of 2 punts.

    That’s garbage.

  4. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    A coach should be straight up fired for that crap

  5. bucfanforever Says:

    And the refs owe Rojo a Td.

  6. Erick Says:

    Team is so frustrating to watch. So undisciplined

  7. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    We played like little puppies. Where is the risk it no biscuit mentality? Oh that’s right he goes for a 4th down in the first half on our own 20 yet doesn’t go for the score to seal the game…Pathetic

  8. Iamabuc Says:

    Well , not a game goes by without hearing a penalty or two from Donovan Smith…. it’s really tiresome and not funny anymore….with!!

  9. Wesley Says:


  10. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Don’t forget the two roughing the passer penalties that we saw.

  11. bucfanforever Says:

    Iamabuc. The Bucs were losing at that point, kicking the field goal gives them a lead. Then you let the defense hold them (theoretically), whihc they did. The only way the Bears moved the ball after that was on phantom penalties.

  12. ©MadMax Says:

    We had some BS calls from the refs, including the unsecured football by KVaughn when he was hit…ball was still moving on his 2nd step

    Same ole Bucs bad luck with refs that decided a close one.

  13. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Arians won’t be here next year if this keeps up. Tom will retire and we willl be blowing this thing up.

  14. All lives matter Says:

    I don’t know how many times after a so called penalty on the Bucs, Aikman or Buck said they didn’t agree with the penalty. Even the ex Ref said he didn’t agree. Too many phantom calls.

  15. James Walker Says:

    That was on the refs. The only way to cut the penalties is to pay them off. More than the calls, were the non-calls on Chicago (false starts, facemasks, ect…).

  16. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Can’t believe how undisciplined this team is. Refs made some terrible calls no doubt but we should have ran away with this game if we didn’t keep stalling due to penalties. Bruce better put his foot down as this is on the coach.

    Ndog Says:

    “But but but we weren’t going to have penalities anymore cause we got rid of our QB?

    RIGHT GUYS?????”

    Answer : No not right and said by NO ONE on these comment boards and Jameis still sucks but NOT as much as YOU do!

  18. Annoyed in Rhode Island Says:

    Refs were terrible but the Bucs didn’t help there cause with dumb penalties. Calling that Jensen headbutt should of sent both to the blue tent.

  19. Dirtymike69 Says:

    Hey joe, how you gonna apologize for Donovan Smith this time?? Joe doesn’t apologize for players. –Joe Got eaten alive and penalized all night, doesn’t even deserve to be on an NFL roster.

  20. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I agree on the 2 Shaq penalties…..especially the roughing penalty…..that was awful…..and a momentum changer……

    But we played a very sloppy game….especially on offense…..and we let a couple of interceptions get away from us.

    Turnovers, Penalties & Special Teams…..that’s what it usually comes down to.

    Going for 3 instead of 7 late was a colossal mistake.

  21. FtWorthBucs Says:

    That was disgusting

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    Ndog do you understand that Jameis Winston is never coming back and if so how long do you think your foolishness will continue if you say you are a Bucs fan?

  23. Erick Says:

    Carlton Davis PI streak continues. And WHY the hell is he playing 15 yards off Robinson!!??? He’s not a burner. Did someone let Lovie on the sideline or headset?

  24. CalBucsFan Says:

    Poor offense from such a talented group, and Jansen head butting foul was childless as hell.

    But the refs sucked tonight! Bears OLman rocked in the last 2 mins. of first half and should have been called for a penalty making it 3rd and 17. Instead Shaq gets the penalty and Foles next play is a shorter 1st down play. Next thing you know 14 pts. In less than 2 mins. turned a 13 point lead into a 1-point deficit.

    That’s not all though, in the second half Shaq hits Foles who’s attempting to pass AS THE BALL IS STILL IN HIS HANDS and gets called for roughing the passer? WTF!!!

  25. Razor Ramone Says:

    Now we find out what kind of team we have, in previous years this loss would be followed by 3 more. We shall see.

  26. CalBucsFan Says:

    Can’t a HC challenge a bad call by the refs?

  27. Bird Says:


    Well said. And you were a huge jameis fan. Kudos
    We battleD over jameis for some time
    Do you remember people hoping bucs would lose?
    We get 10 days
    Evans and godwin back hopefully

    Clay matthews tomorrow. Sign him. Send it inside with no vea

    We will be ok

    We are good
    I gave bucs in chicago 50/50. We dont win there
    Packer are tough. No loss there but the same jameis lovers including one writer here have already given us a loss

  28. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Game over, whatever, losing s*cks. Time to strap it on secondary, because you are going to be bombarded in 10 days. It is going to take a shootout to win against GB GO BUCS!!!!

  29. 407buc Says:

    That seals the deal. I am no longer a Buccaneers fan. This team is a pure and utter embarrassment to the city of Tampa. I officially will not be renewing my plan next season nor will I watch on tv ever again. I’m going to Green Bay where they know how to run a football team.

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    I expect no answer fro Nidiot.

  31. Coburn Says:

    There were tons of holds against Chicago all night that should have been called. Even in the play where they had the 6 yard loss on the dump off.. someone was being held all the way to the qb right up the middle and was shocked no flag

    Prove to me that this was said previously.

    You could be right but prove it.

  33. Buc1987 Says:

    407buc…REALLY after a 1 point loss?…….moron.

  34. TampaTown Says:

    Yes you will. You’ll be back like the rest of us sadist idiot$.

  35. Pewter Power Says:

    Give it up Ndog Winston was trash as his 2020 salary shows. But he’s a comparison I’ll never watch this game again, it’s as unwatchable as last year’s London debacle. If this was Winston no way we get out of that game with zero picks.

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    Bird…I’ve always maintained that I’m a Bucs fan first even when I was big on Jameis.

  37. 407buc Says:

    After this 8-8 season the Glazer family should consider ceasing operations in Tampa. Disgraceful in every aspect. This team has shown each week high level incompetence with playcalling and execution. At least when the Packers wax us it will be expected

  38. Bird Says:


    Cmon man. New name

    Are you?

    Ndog? Anthem ? Jameis almighty? Webster?

    The nole fans are rooting for 2 things

    1). Brady to lose
    2). Jameis sweaty used jock strap

    “Oh. Well they rooted against jameis…yah right”

  39. 407buc Says:

    Bird, I’m a silent fan who can’t be silent after what I just witnessed. A meltdown in the primetime. We are an undisciplined and overrated team. Chargers choked a game they should’ve have won by a large margin. Team is an embarrassment to football we don’t even know what down it is. Poetic

  40. Miketb19 Says:

    I still believe in Tom Brady and BA last time checked even great teams can have a bad week here or there.

    We lost by 1 point to a team with one of the best defenses in football a defense that got the Bears to 3-1 even with Mitch Trubisky as there quarterback so it’s not like we lost to the Jets guys

    Last time I checked we’re still 3-2 with 70% percent of the season still to play let’s take a long weekend get our s*** together and give GB there first loss next Sunday.

    By the way the Bears can give a huge assist to the Refs in this game the offense was sloppy there’s no doubt it tonight but the 3 penalties we got on Defense were total dog s***
    2 Barrett for offsides when even Ray Charles could of seen Ifedi jumped and the roughing the passer penalty
    1 on Carlton Davis for PI when Foles under three that ball by almost 10 yards Allen Robinson arms aren’t a giraffes neck last time I checked

    So make no mistake about it the Bears were not the better team tonight just the more fortunate one remember that

  41. REDZONE BA Says:

    @407 Fan – You might be on to something. Chargers called the most stupid play ever to give Bucs the advantage and Win.

  42. Bucsfan951 Says:

    “we don’t even know what down it is. Poetic”

    lol hard to argue that. That was a kick to the groin after losing a knock down, drag out fight! In all honesty, I did lol when it happened. I had to find some form of humor in it 🤷🏻‍♂️

  43. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    The referees cost is that game, especially with the bad call against Barrett for roughing the passer.

  44. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    I got to say Floridans are the WORST football fans EVER! Atleast Dolphins fans even Marino don’t b!tch and complain like you as$holes! Before giving up on the early season, ZIP IT! Josh Freeman gave u 10-6 record, Winston was a CLASS ACT for the COMMUNITY.. and his RECORD BREAKING STATS.. F OFFS .. non worthy idiots!
    What are you living off!

  45. DCBUCSFAN Says:

    sick off bandwagoners and non believers i told u so once a team is in work to build up.. gonna take about 8 next year gonna be win or bust.. come the F down hoe$! Unreal!

  46. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    When I that last Shaq roughing the passer call my first thought was “Vegas has way too much action on the Bucs”. No doubt the Bucs were way too undisciplined last night, and in my mind that’s on Arians to ingrain things like situational football and discipline. Now I’m not saying it’s the case, but a skeptical person might wonder if BS calls by the referees (like that roughing the passer that extend the Bears drive) COULD be used to influence the outcomes a game that has too much betting action on one team?
