Buccaneers 48, Falcons 25

September 19th, 2021

That’s 10 in a row!!

Man, Bucs fans have gotten spoiled. Lots of whining and crying early this afternoon because the Bucs didn’t put the Falcons away before halftime.

But that’s life now from Lakeland to Largo. Joe, along with every other red-blooded Bucs fan, is now programmed to expect 60 minutes of greatness. And considering the Bucs’ loaded roster, it’s understandable.

The run defense was its historic smothering self all afternoon, and the depleted pass defense did just enough to be effective until Mike Edwards took over the fourth quarter.

Major love for the front line. Vita Vea’s batted pass was snatched out of the air by Shaq Barrett, and that was the dagger that led to the Mike Evans touchdown that put the Bucs up 28-10 early in the second half..

The Bucs’ offense? What can Joe say. It’s freakin’ historic. It seems Tom Brady with all this firepower can overcome all kinds of mistakes, from penalties to sacks and the Ronald Jones Experience.

It’s on to Los Angeles!

    Closing the comments early? Animal!

  2. unbelievable Says:

    Looked sloppy for the first 3 quarters but they out the game away when needed and the defense finally showed up at the end.

    Lots to still work on, but a win is a win.

    Let’s go Bucs!

    Let’s go

    Rams will be tougher

    Defense has to come out sharper earlier…no TOs on offense and we’ll be winners


  6. TheShaz Says:

    Our secondary is still suspect.

    Nice double pick 6 for Edwards, but still the secondary is IFFY.

    Brady and the offense, for someone so used to the Bucs Offense being RUN-RUN-PASS-PUNT for so long -or- Jameis excitement followed by Jameis anguish over the turnovers.

    This is so nice to watch.

  7. Wesley Says:

    Our running backs are questionable. I’d like to see Vaughn get some play time. No excuse for Fournette not to get that first down, it was right there for him.

  8. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Great win at the end…BUT still concerned since we’re gonna see a good offense next week in LA. Gotta find a way to get that pass rush more consistent.
    TB12 is on fire to start the year!!

  9. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    We’ll at least we’re still winning!

  10. Buc4evr Says:

    We can’t play like this against the Rams. Stafford isn’t going to self destruct like Ryan. Hope or D can generate a better rush next week. Mike Edwards was in beast mode

  11. D-Rok Says:

    If this score sticks, it’s a sick score. Incredible game.

  12. DBS Says:

    If the defense does what it did today in the first half for sure? The Rams game will most likely be our first loss unless the the offense puts over 40 points on the board.

  13. 813bucboi Says:

    Raiders will lose 7 in a row lol….



  14. King C Says:

    Dalvin Cook was the right choice over OJ Howard

  15. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    They went 3 safeties instead of Cockerell…great decision!!

  16. Rod Munch Says:

    With as much as we complain about our kicking, and it has been awful, no one misses more big kicks than the Vikings.

  17. B Says:

    Yes Joe, too much whining. We do not realize in the moment this is a historic team. Betting on this team is easy- if your tram can’t score 30 pts you cannot win.

  18. firethecannons Says:

    Incredible! Our defense was looking weak then came the Mike Edwards pick sixes! Impressive! 3 picks for the D!–that is not weak! Well done!

  19. firethecannons Says:

    and there is the touchdown by Devin White that was taken away

  20. Youngbucs Says:

    They really don’t understand what their witnessing Brady is 44 smh!!!!!

  21. Logan Says:

    This defense will get rolled by the Rams if they don’t pick it up. We know our offense is good, but if we want to repeat the defense has to get better.

  22. Richard Dickson Says:

    The way our defense is playing, we may have to score 60 to beat the Rams next week.

    The way our offense is playing, we might just do it.

  23. T REX Says:

    Great win.

    Brady is immortal.


  24. Buczilla Says:

    Good times. Big test next week. I’m f’ing stoked. 😜

  25. gp Says:

    Game ball to Edwards!

  26. T REX Says:



    Defense needs help.

    ROJO is dog sh!t.

    He should never see the field again.

    GARBAGE. If you can’t pick up that blitz by now you are too stupid to play in the NFL.


  27. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    Edwards rocked but the Rams is going to continue testing our DBs.

    Still looking for the same pass rush from the Super Bowl.

  28. Hodad Says:

    Joe, the Ronald Jones experience. You ain’t lying.

  29. Rod Munch Says:

    I still think the Bucs should call the Colts, do a straight up trade of Rojo for Marlon Mack. Rojo should be the better player, and Mack is the #3 on the Colts depth chart, so I think they’d go for it. From the Bucs side you get a proven rusher, who can catch, who would be coming home and you’d think would be really motivated. Rojo is just too much of a flake, and you know he’s not here for the long term.

  30. View from 132 Says:

    Whining and crying? That 3rd quarter looked like Leeman Bennett was coaching Jack Thompson. Should never have been that close. The standard is higher and should get higher.

  31. orlbucfan Says:

    Methusaleh played like an old fart in the beginning after that initial TD. The defense led the win with big help from the special teams aka punting. LVD was all over the place with the LBs and DBs. VV had some big plays. BA just credited the defense on Bucs Radio a few minutes ago. CG14 had a big game. And the icing on the cake…..Panthers kicked Aints azz today.

  32. Rod Munch Says:

    orlbucfan Says:
    …The defense led the win


    LOL! OK.

  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, Titans got screwed in overtime. They sacked Wilson in the endzone for a safety, and the refs gave him a spot at the 1. Complete BS.

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    YES, stupid Seahawks lost!

    Had the stupid Saints and stupid Seahawks lose today.

    Too bad the stupid Rams couldn’t also lose. Also the stupid Eagles totally blew their game versus the stupid 49ers, would have been nice to see them lose as well.

  35. Wild Bill Says:

    Pass rush not like last year the first two games. Ryan had too much time most of the game. Even Brady was up and down. 5 nice TD throws but many over and under throws. Could not maintain a nice lead until the two defensive tds closed the game out. Final score looked great but the game was very close deep into the game. I know 2 and 0 is nice but next game the Bucs need to show last year’s form against the Rams. Pass rush not looking very strong for 2 games now.

  36. Rod Munch Says:

    Just a note… Shaq had as many tackles today as Ryan Jensen.

    Shaq really made his name in that @Rams game in 2019, maybe another trip to LA wakes him up.

  37. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Not only did Ronald Jones play like garbage. Fournette made that incredible block on the blitz that saved Brady’s bacon. He’s gotta be the starter going forward.

  38. Bobby M. Says:

    IMO…..Rojo is starting to see the writing on the wall. He’s well past the stage of riding his “potential” and is now a pretty obvious one dimensional back that has mental breakdowns and poor execution. It’s pretty telling that even in a contract year, he’s pouting, missing assignments, etc. He is who he is……probably a good rotational RB with occasional starting roles. I’m curious how many times Arians is going to want to have conversations with the media about Rojo. If he was ready to cut Fournette….and he axed Hargreaves, let Winston walk….I imagine Rojo is on a short leash or even trying to get cut.
