  11. JimmyJack Says:

    Im a nervous wreck. Hoping the Bucs dominate and calm me down. Enjoy the game Boys.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  12. Nate Dawg Says:

    What more can we say but….LFG!!!!!

  13. TheShaz Says:

    Why am I nervous?

    My heart tells me that the Bucs have a history of letting me down.

    My brain is reminding me we just won the SB, have the GOAT and practically the entire team back.

  14. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    14-3 for the season and the #1 seed.

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    Who else is watching the game on the Cock!?

  16. Buc Neckid Says:

    They Just Advertised a Gambling App on an NFL Broadcast?!?!

  17. Buc Neckid Says:

    Winning a Super Bowl is One Thing,
    Let’s see if Brady can bring the Winning Tradition of “Dynasty” to Tampa Bay.

  18. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The beer is cold and the joints are rolled. Go Bucs!!!

  19. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Alright DEWEY! The beer is cold here and the vape is gold!

  20. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I wonder if we’ll see a poopstain in Dak’s pants.

  21. EA Says:

    Lets Goooooo

  22. King C Says:

    Back again..
    Has Tom Brady officially ended #itsabucslife?
    The answer is yes!

  23. richbucsfan Says:

    How could NBC miss the flyover

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    I hate getting the ball first… it tends to never go well.

  25. BuccoDav Says:

    I saw the flyover on NBC. What there was of it. just lights going across the black sky.

  26. David Says:

    Can’t believe they benched Darden. I thought he’d be returning kicks and punts. Oh well, I hope it doesn’t set the rookie back.

  27. Rod Munch Says:

    Run up the middle to start the game…

    At least they did it from shotgun.

    Oh, and Rojo had better play or my fantasy team is dead.

  28. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    3 and out???

  29. DaBux Says:


  30. Buc Neckid Says:

    Stuard is in the Game

  31. Wesley Says:

    Our offense ALWAYS starts slow.

  32. BuccoDav Says:


  33. Rod Munch Says:

    Always the same thing when we get the ball first… Two runs to start, incomplete on 3rd down. How can you script the same thing over and over and never learn from it.

  34. David Says:

    That will help the kick coverage!!

  35. Buc Neckid Says:

    Cowboys are playing the World Champs and playing with nothing to lose

  36. Rod Munch Says:

    Shock – they don’t run up the middle to start the game and it works…

  37. cmurda Says:

    That 3rd down call by BL left a lot to be desired. That defense was primed for an easy run for the first and the defense got totally shocked on a busted coverage. No worries. Shake it off boys. Toughen up defense. Looking softee

  38. Buc Neckid Says:

    Zeke is pretty good again

  39. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Pretty big difference how throwing opened up the Boys O

  40. Buc Neckid Says:

    What a concept… throwing of first down

  41. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    How was that a bad call??? Brady panicked when he didn’t need to

  42. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Not a great start here. The D line doesn’t seem to be getting much pressure yet.

  43. BuccoDav Says:

    Why does it always take this team so long to get started?

  44. Huh Says:

    Come on Defense

  45. Buc Neckid Says:

    Has Dak been touched yet?

  46. Wesley Says:

    Still not sold on SMB.

  47. Rod Munch Says:

    When we script plays it’s 2 runs up the middle and on 3rd short throwing deep.

    Meanwhile they’re scripting plays and marching right down the field.


  48. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Weak secondary

  49. Buc Neckid Says:

    That was a reputation flinch

  50. Buc Neckid Says:

    Finally some pressure

  51. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    At least they tightened up…now LFG offense

  52. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Man, Arians must have zero confidence in Darden. Mickens is a stiff!

  53. Buc Neckid Says:

    Rookie Tryon is playing quite a bit

  54. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    96/97 yard TD drive coming up!!

  55. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice stop there, finally got some pressure.

  56. cmurda Says:

    Yeah boys. Way to pressure on 3rd down. Lets go Offense

  57. Huh Says:

    Alright come on offense. Too many weapons to be just running up the gut.
    Come BL don’t play turtle

  58. BomTrady Says:

    Are we going to turn it up soon? Evans, Gronk, Howard, Godwin, AB, Rojo, Lenny

  59. Architek Says:

    Relax guys

  60. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Benefitted from their mistakes. I’ll take it but you can’t count on it all game.

  61. cmurda Says:

    Reputation flinch. LOL. That’s funny and true.

  62. David Says:

    “False start, the entire offensive line.”

    LoL Never heard that before

  63. Navfree17 Says:

    Get the jitters out. Bad throw by Brady. D stepped up. LFG!

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    Every game they start out with the same with the terrible series that Leftwich has planned, but they normally do better on the 2nd drive.

    Hopefully they come out like vs Houston, in the 2min offense and take it right down the field.

  65. Gettinthebucs Says:

    Tryon already on the field for the first defensive series of the year = DROY. LFG!!!!

  66. Navfree17 Says:


    I said the same thing!

  67. BradyBucs Says:

    The “Gravediggers” LOL

    Our secondary is still terrible. Lucky they had some drops.

  68. Rod Munch Says:

    Tryon was out there on the 1st defensive play, he blitzed but didn’t get any pressure. But I think he was out there for every play except maybe the 3rd and short.

    BTW on the 3rd and short, Vita got knocked on his rear end.

  69. Navfree17 Says:

    If you don’t think Brady will respond..ya have not been paying attention.

  70. David Says:

    Everyone relax. The defense looked good. You’re not going to have phenomenal pressure every single pass. There was one blown coverage on a third down early in the drive.
    It’s a long season, slowly get better and better.

    Here comes along touchdown drive

  71. Rod Munch Says:

    Run up the middle to start the series… SHOCKING!

  72. Beej Says:

    BUT, they got 5 yards

  73. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    Anybody else having audio issue?. Certain commercials are muted for me.

  74. Buc Neckid Says:

    When in doubt, get it to Gronk

  75. BomTrady Says:

    That’s what we need, we have three really good TEs, let’s TE them to death!

  76. Buc Neckid Says:

    how Many Options???
    What a Luxury

  77. Rod Munch Says:

    It was more about just knowing they’d run it up the middle.

  78. Bobby Says:

    When they had the player intros on NBC tonight where they say where they went to college, JPP said he went to a different college than USF. Wait a min he was drafted by NY Giants out of USF. He is like the greatest player to come out of USF. Yet JPP sounds like he is ashamed to say on NBC that he is from USF. Hey Joe Bucs Fan, this sounds like a story you could write about and ask JPP about it during a press conference. Hey JPP are you ashamed to tell the public on NBC that your from USF???

  79. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Imagine that this guy TB can throw the d@mn ball!!!

  80. Rod Munch Says:

    Damn, that Gronk throw and catch was great.

    Brady went to hurry up offense after that.

  81. David Says:

    I also expect the Cowboys defense to be much better than last year. Last year, with no off-season, they tried to switch to a 3-4 when they have a 4-3 personal

  82. Buc Neckid Says:

    Did they fire the Cannons? or did i miss it?

  83. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady is pushing the pace – YES

    Tell Leftwich and his garbage run up the middle to shove it.

  84. David Says:

    Jeffrey. No

  85. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    6 more yards

  86. BuccoDav Says:

    Everybody is getting in to the action!

  87. Huh Says:

    Let’s get that TD boys

  88. Buc Neckid Says:

    First TD of 6 tonight

  89. Rod Munch Says:

    …and Leftwich tells Brady to slow it back down and run it up the middle.

    So frustrating.

    Just let Brady run the hurry up and put up 60 points.

  90. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Too EASY!!!

  91. BuccoDav Says:


  92. Huh Says:

    Godwin woooooo
    Yea Boi

  93. Beej Says:

    Rod, do you remember the counter-trey with Riggins? EVERYbody knew Jacoby and Grimm were gonna lead on that, ALways worked

  94. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:


  95. David Says:

    What a drive. SMH
    Thing of beauty

  96. Navfree17 Says:

    LFG fire the cannons!

  97. Rod Munch Says:


    Damn how long is the delay on the Cock, I’m like 2 mins behind I think

  98. BucfaninMi Says:


  99. 123urout Says:

    That was a well executed drive !!! GO BUCS !

  100. cmurda Says:

    Oh yeah. That drive was gorgeous. Playcalling, execution and all. XP splits uprights. That is what I’m talking about.

  101. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    7 more Tom

  102. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Wow! They made that look totally freakin’ easy!

  103. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Hi Alvin, this year off to a good start. on and off the field lol

  104. cmurda Says:

    It depends Rod. Are you married?

  105. Gettinthebucs Says:

    😂 I know the cowboys D is dumpster juice but it’s looking like another super bowl people.

  106. BuccoDav Says:

    Gronk, AB, ME, Godwin… RoJo and Fournette making good gains. Gotta love it!!

  107. Navfree17 Says:

    Watch the D feast

  108. Richard Dickson Says:

    Beautiful. Now we just need to get some pressure on Dak.

  109. Vsyl Says:


  110. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    It sure is nice to watch nearly PERFECTLY PLACED THROWS when it’s being thrown to a BUC!!! So many years watching other QBs throw those perfect passes against US!!!

  111. Bucschamp Says:

    This offense is fluid wow

  112. MadMax Says:

    Lets go D….Dak is on

  113. Rod Munch Says:

    Beej – Yeah, but we have Brady, Gronk, Evans, Godwin, AB, OJ, Brate, Miller and more. No need to run it up the middle.

    Just do what Brady did on the drive, go to a 2 min offense, do that for a few series, get a few TD lead, then you can run all you want because the defense will be completely off balance.

    But we got the TD, which is awesome. I’m only half-heartedly complaining, it’s just more about knowing what they’re doing than anything.

  114. Jugheadfla Says:

    That Brady Subway commercial tho….lololllllollol

  115. NaplesBucsFan Says:


  116. Miller5252 Says:

    Now that’s how they’re supposed to look! Watch out NFL!! Here comes the greatest offensive team ever! Greatest team on turf doesn’t have anything compared to the Bucs this year. LOOK OUT!!

  117. Buc Neckid Says:

    Don’t you think that sometimes the BUCS script the first drive JUST to see what the opposing defense is going to do?

  118. Rod Munch Says:

    That second drive was like against the Houston game, we went to the 2 min (for part of it anyways) and went right down the field. Just stick with the 2 min offense until we’re up by 35.

  119. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Vita looks slimmer

  120. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Come on Fancy Man, you’re usually up to speed on the Cock.

  121. Buc Neckid Says:

    Just like the old 2000’s Tampa D…
    Bend in between the twenties,
    Don’t break in the red zone

  122. BuccoDav Says:

    Dak is slinging it pretty good.

  123. Wesley Says:

    Secondary is still our weak link.

  124. Bobby Says:

    Hey JPP may ashamed of saying on NBC that he went to USF. He said on the player college announcements that he went to somewhere else than USF. Is JPP ashamed of being out of USF???

  125. BucfaninMi Says:

    I’d like to see a turnover soon

  126. cmurda Says:

    Come on defense. Play is snuffed out but thee effort is lacking. Tackle guys.

  127. Buc Neckid Says:

    Weak tackling so far

  128. Wesley Says:

    Bunting sucks.

  129. Rod Munch Says:

    Dallas has an extremely good offense, they’re probably 3rd in the NFL behind the Bucs and Chiefs. The defense needs to tighten stuff up – don’t let gimmick plays get 7 yards.

  130. David Says:

    Bobby. A lot of them mix it up and say they’re high school or something like that. He’ll say USF later in the year probably

  131. PassingThru Says:

    Waiting for Dallas to run out of school yard plays.

  132. Buc Neckid Says:

    Nice to Tryon used quite a bit

  133. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Defense getting used

  134. Buc Neckid Says:

    Well that sucks

  135. BucfaninMi Says:


  136. Buc Neckid Says:

    SMB down and hurt

  137. cmurda Says:

    These plays are too easy for the Cows. Quick plays that are wide open because Todd is jamming the line. SMB is looking awful…. And now hurt. That was a terrible defensive effort after we scored. That shouldn’t happen.

  138. BuccoDav Says:

    SMB is toast…

  139. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Burnt Toast

  140. Jmarkbuc Says:

    I see we’re back to social distancing defense again….

  141. Wesley Says:

    Like I said bunting sucks.

  142. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Can’t cover, rush or stop the run. Looks a lot like the start of last year.

  143. Buc Neckid Says:

    Collar Bone or Shoulder
    He’s Done

  144. Buxszntkt Says:

    The suspect D, back 4

  145. Rod Munch Says:

    Pitiful effort by the defense on that drive.

  146. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Broke his arm. Got bent backwards

  147. Moreon Says:

    Was expecting defense to put more pressure on

  148. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    This pass D lols horrible against the quick throws!!! Oh and Bunting is gonna be out for a month or two minimum

  149. Brandon Says:

    Looks like a broken collarbone for SMB.

  150. Navfree17 Says:

    Nah. We are taking their best punches. We will be okay.

  151. BradyBucs Says:


  152. Armybucfan Says:

    SmB has looked terrible for a while now. He shows some great plays then has a ton of bone headed plays. Thankfully we have some depth at CB.

  153. webster Says:

    And thats why u dont draft krask in the 2nd round when u are going for two. A 2nd round cb was the choice.

  154. Buc Neckid Says:

    Hope its a broke arm
    Bones heal better than ligaments and tendons

  155. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Well we might be in for a dog fight to beat Dallas. No game will be easy every team will give it their all against the Champs..

  156. Dano Says:

    Broke his arm. Damn

  157. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Dallas is doing nothing but quick routes and motions by Dak

  158. Will Says:

    Defense needs to step up. Down 1DB now

  159. Chris Says:

    Damn… that’s definitely a broken arm

  160. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    SMB looked on that drive like he did last year early in the season. I’m afraid that’s a pretty significant shoulder/arm injury.

  161. Richard Dickson Says:

    Really tired of these slow ass porn ‘stache white guy tight ends eating us up.

  162. Miller5252 Says:

    Our D looks as bad as the cowboys D. Good grief! Now Bunting is hurt…. D needs a wake up call cause they look horrible so far.

  163. Armybucfan Says:

    Well he’s out for the year. Next man up!!!

  164. Bobby Says:

    Your probably right David, cause I’ve heard him past telecasted games saying he is from USF.

  165. GoFor2 Says:

    SMB getting owned at the line as per usual. Such a show boat POS.

  166. UKBuccaneer Says:

    SMB is trash. No use making one or two splash plays in a playoff run, when you get beat so regularly.

  167. DBS Says:

    SMB toast again . Just like last year.

  168. Wesley Says:

    @bradybucs- not me, definitely our weakest link.

  169. SBucs Says:

    Surprising how the defense looked in the first quarter

  170. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Where did any of you see a broken collar bone that was his elbow caught between Lamb’s back and Winfield’s shoulder

  171. King C Says:

    Something different about the comments so far. Hard to be overly negative fhe first game after you won a super bowl as an underdog

  172. Moreon Says:

    Really didn’t want a shoot out

  173. Rod Munch Says:

    That replay looked bad for SMB… ugh.

    The 2003 Bucs season was sunk by an injury to a corner on MNF… Brian Kelly got hurt vs the Colts when the Bucs were up big, Manning picked on the replacement and came back and got the win. The Bucs, in 2003, had zero depth after moving Dwight Smith from corner to safety.


  174. 123urout Says:

    hope smb is ok

  175. Architek Says:

    Complaining about the secondary after one drive????

    Jesus man- really….

  176. Anonymous Says:


  177. Moreon Says:

    It was 9.5 point spread at kick off

  178. PassingThru Says:

    This is what I feared, the loss of a starting CB.

    This is where the roster depth is thin, and why I wanted a CB drafted rather than Trask.

  179. Jersey buc Says:

    Early but this defense better get it together!

  180. BradyBucs Says:

    The mighty “Nosepickers” Bucs Secondary is BACK.

  181. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    When the blitz didn’t even breathe on Dak I knew it was a td

  182. Brandon Says:

    Ewww. Elbow.

  183. cmurda Says:

    Crap. That looks bad for SMB

  184. 123urout Says:

    that arm looks dislocated

  185. Buc Neckid Says:

    SMB will be back for the Super Bowl

  186. Rod Munch Says:

    I’ve said it all offseason, but as a reminder, the Bucs regular season defense wasn’t anything special. They got hot in the playoffs, but I don’t think that post season defense is what we’ll get all season — and I don’t care since the team will win based on the offense.

  187. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Great run blocking

  188. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Time to trade for a CB if Murphy Bunting is out for any length of time.

  189. Rod Munch Says:

    3 series… 3 runs up the middle…

  190. MadMax Says:

    Well, its kind of obvious, no disrespect, but its time to research CB in our first round

  191. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Not complaining about the secondary after one drive, no. Complaining about SMB after watching him since he arrived.

  192. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    AB will have 100 yards and then some

  193. BucfaninMi Says:

    Where’s Gio?

  194. Rod Munch Says:

    I don’t care if you like SMB or not, you can’t lose starting corners and except things to turn out well.

  195. DBS Says:

    Yes really. It is the 2nd drive. Passes on the secondary on both. SMB again weak link.

  196. Steven Wentworth Says:

    Why does he keep taking Rojo out he just made a great block. What’s his beef?

  197. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Durable Donnie, not the first time he’s gonna get beat tonight.

  198. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Get the ball to Evans if you want to win.

  199. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    Then he drops it

  200. cmurda Says:

    Whoa AB? Typically sure-handed. Brady had all day to throw. That sucks

  201. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Our defense looks slow.

  202. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Not a very impressive start on defense. SMB is gonna be out for awhile, I think. That was pretty ugly.

  203. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    This offensive line is allowing a little too much movement in the pockets for what the hell happened to AB on that catch???

  204. firethecannons Says:

    our defense and runningbacks are slow

  205. cmurda Says:

    Gio is out there but guys are getting open. Catching the ball has been another story.

  206. Rod Munch Says:

    They marched it right down the field when they went to hurry up, then they go back to the slow Leftwich offense with typical results. I just don’t get it. Do what works – not what you have scripted. The Dallas defense was being torn apart, it’s new, they don’t know what they’re doing, and when you slow things down you’re letting them get organized.

    In the end it shouldn’t matter, but I just don’t get the stubbornness.

  207. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Where is Gio? Has he even been in the game?

  208. BuccaneerButters Says:

    Hope SMB is OK. Defense needs to tighten up NOW.

  209. David Says:

    Go for it?

  210. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    See Joe rusts why we wanted Gio when our receivers drop balls

  211. Mail man Says:

    Our defense needs to step up

  212. Buc Neckid Says:

    Aren’t two of our CB’s in their Contract Year?

  213. mark2001 Says:

    A little SB hangover, apparently. The D is playing pretty weak.

  214. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Y’all can keep saying SMB was the weak link but I didn’t see anyone else making plays in the passing attacks…maybe that was just me?!?!

  215. Rod Munch Says:

    The defense hasn’t done anything, just go for it.

  216. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another Mr.Irrelevant sighting

  217. Rod Munch Says:

    With this offense we’re punting from the 40?

    This is Dirk level of cowardness. WOW.

  218. ElioT Says:

    Come on defense!

  219. Wesley Says:

    Trade for a c.b. we might just be better off.

  220. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    All of a sudden, this game is getting sloppy. Tackling is all about form and “want to.” I don’t see it yet. Maybe our team read too many press clippings?

  221. Buc Neckid Says:

    who is our 43?

  222. David Says:

    Big stop!!

  223. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Now THAT’S what I’m talkin’ about. Nice stand!

  224. BuccoDav Says:


  225. David Says:

    The big man!!

  226. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Suh remains a beast!

  227. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    The defense is picking it up

  228. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    No pressure. What was that Joe said about 3 sacks?

  229. David Says:

    Damn I would love to see Darden back here right now. He’s explosive

  230. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice stop by the defense.

    Now lets see if we got to the Brady 2 min offense, or if Leftwich again demands we run up the middle and punt.

  231. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Nice return but HOLD THAT D@MN BALL!!!!

  232. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Jpp read the play. He’s often susceptible to that kind of run but not this time.

  233. cmurda Says:

    Of course the zebras find a penalty on the return. It just seems like that always happens.

  234. Wesley Says:

    Refs just love to ruin a good thing.

  235. mark2001 Says:

    David…Darden isn’t ready…that is why he is inactive. Light a fire under him.

  236. David Says:

    What’s the % of good returns that get a hold or an illegal block?

    It really is insane

  237. Wesley Says:

    @cmurda- ALWAYS

  238. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Too many penalties and mental mistakes!

  239. Beej Says:

    damn,, felt bad for Mickens there

  240. Buc Neckid Says:

    #43 is Ross Cockrell in for SMB
    Probably an upgrade

  241. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    Go Bucs

  242. firethecannons Says:

    Darden not ready

  243. Colonel Angus Says:

    It’s like the league has a “no exciting return” policy.

  244. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Come on Bucs tighten up and EXECUTE!!!

  245. Buc Neckid Says:

    Where is Scooter?

  246. Navfree17 Says:

    Screens/no huddle/quick outs wont work for Dallas all game.

  247. Beej Says:

    OK….I’m with Rod here, yet aNOTHER first and 10 up the gut

  248. Rod Munch Says:

    4th series.

    4th time we’ve run it up the middle to start the series.

  249. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Chris Godwin is one tough SOB! Most receivers run out of bounds and he initiates contact.

  250. Buc Neckid Says:

    Godwin looks like old Godwin… Smooth

  251. Vsyl Says:

    Tired of these runs up the middle too…

  252. Wesley Says:

    Man I hate refs.

  253. cmurda Says:

    Taunting? Pfffft. Go away Goodell

  254. Wesley Says:

    B.S. flag on Jensen. Ridiculous.

  255. Buc Neckid Says:

    They quieted the Cannons

  256. Rod Munch Says:

    I don’t even mind the run up the middle, it’s just always doing it on 1st down in predictable situations.

    Just play action pass early and you’ll have guys wide open.

  257. BuccoDav Says:

    It’s the Godwin hour!

  258. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    How was there NOT a helmet to helmet on that hit on Godwin?????

  259. David Says:

    That was f’ning weak to call taunting on that!

  260. Steven Wentworth Says:


  261. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Brady is throwing freaking frozen ropes! No way the guy is from this universe!

  262. BuccoDav Says:

    Ran it up the middle on first down again!

  263. Wesley Says:

    It’s truly mind boggling what these refs sometimes see.

  264. Beej Says:

    Well, he got 4 that time

  265. BuccoDav Says:


  266. Buc Neckid Says:

    When in Doubt… Throw it to Gronk

  267. David Says:

    Rod, wouldn’t bitch about the run right now when they’re getting 4 to 5 yards a pop for the most part

  268. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocking, there was the play action pass on 1st down and it gets a big play — then you can run up the middle on the next play for a nice gain.

    Tah duh!

  269. Beej Says:

    I REALLY need him to throw a td to Evans

  270. David Says:

    Nice TD!! Looks like Godwin ran the wrong route on that.

  271. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    TB with 2 TUDDIES?!?!?! LFG!!!!

  272. Navfree17 Says:

    Chess vs checkers

  273. 123urout Says:

    It put a smile on my face 😃. GO BUCS !!

  274. cmurda Says:

    Great drive. Tom just knows what to do with the ball. Slick.

  275. Jeagan1999 Says:


  276. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady is really sharp tonight.

  277. BuccoDav Says:

    But Rod, the play action works so well BECAUSE you run the ball.

  278. David Says:

    We saw Brown get a bunch, Gronk get some, Godwin get some,
    Evans is going to get his, don’t worry

  279. Bird Says:

    Go get Richard sherman

  280. rrsrq Says:

    Alright defense, let’s gooooo

  281. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Now, let’s play some defense and go up by 14 at the half.

  282. Architek Says:

    You guys happy now – geez

  283. cmurda Says:

    Agreed David. I think he did but it also helped screen the defender.

  284. Buc Neckid Says:

    Can Dallas Play Much Better?
    Probably not tonight
    Zeke is a non-factor
    and Dak is Rusty
    But The Bucs are just hitting their stride

  285. David Says:

    So when Hill flashes a deuce to the defenders and backflips over the end zone… Is that going to be flagged for taunting? It should be

  286. Navfree17 Says:

    Dak will be forced into mistakes

  287. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Munch, Brady is going to be sharp all season.

  288. SteveK Says:

    LFG Bucs!

    Let’s see Big Sexy Vita Vea with a sack

  289. Buc Neckid Says:

    Great Crypto FTX commercial

  290. 123urout Says:

    Dont worry about Evans, we have 16 more games to go.

  291. David Says:

    Time for a sack. Where has Barrett been?

  292. ModHairKen Says:

    Now get to Dak.

  293. Rod Munch Says:

    BuccoDav – Correct, but you don’t need to wait until the middle of the 2nd quarter. You literally could come out on the 1st play of the game and do that, and then for the rest of the game they don’t know what is coming.

    Regardless, we’re playing a very bad defense and it’s working — although it still feels like we should have 28 points already instead of just 14.

  294. mark2001 Says:

    Have to get some pressure on Prescott.

  295. Buc Neckid Says:

    Face Guarding

  296. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    The Gravediggers are digging their own graves!

  297. EA Says:

    need to get to Dak now, come on pass rush

  298. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – Brady wasn’t that sharp to start last season, tonight he is throwing bullets into tiny windows, exceptional accuracy and velocity, really impressive.

  299. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Defense looks like straight trash tonight.

  300. cmurda Says:

    This is a great offense but our secondary is scary right now. Pressure doesn’t have time because our corners are getting beat so fast. Wow. I expected more out of our defense. Looks like our offense might have to be on their game more than I thought

  301. mark2001 Says:

    The key is no pressure on Dak. He has good receivers. Have to make him sweat.

  302. Buc Neckid Says:

    Not sure but that first foot looked dragged/tapped down before going out

  303. rrsrq Says:

    C’mon Bowles get your defense in the game

  304. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Rod, I agree. He had a new team last year and no preseason. What did you expect? By all accounts, he has a good knee now, knows the offense, knows the receivers and the sky is the limit.

  305. Beej Says:

    At least there isn’t much dropoff between SMB and Dean

  306. Rod Munch Says:

    The flag here isn’t bad, worst case it gives the defense more time to rest.

    Although with the delay on the Cock they’re probably 5 plays beyond this replay by now.

  307. Miller5252 Says:

    The back end of the D is leaking all over. The front can’t get to Dak because he’s throwing it quick. Need to start pressuring the receivers. D looks like they didn’t make it to the stadium tonight. Under the big lights and getting beat up

  308. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Yes.. our corners are the weakest link. It’s a long season tho. No worries yet.

  309. David Says:

    Well I asked where Shaq has been and that was the third time I’ve seen him double teamed

  310. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Still don’t think Davis did anything wrong. Unlike Joe I think he is very ordinary but that was a good play he’d made.

  311. 123urout Says:

    Prescot is looking sharp for a guy who hasn’t played for almost a year plus no pre season snaps.

  312. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – It wasn’t a criticism or anything, I’m just surprised with as little work that he got this preseason that he is that sharp. I mean these are some of the best pure passes you’ll see from anyone. That first pass to Gronk is as tight of a window as you’ll ever see.

  313. Adrnagy Says:

    Where is shaq?

  314. Buc Neckid Says:

    Do we look favored by 8???

  315. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Rod, that’s why he’s the GOAT. That ain’t Jay Miss back there!

  316. cmurda Says:

    No holding call with Vea being held but they call it on the defense

  317. mg Says:

    Defense looks tired. Offense will have to carry this group.

  318. Wesley Says:

    Man this defense needs to be better.

  319. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Yeah kinda

  320. 123urout Says:

    It’s either Prescot is sharp or the Bucs defense is still having Superbowl hangover.

  321. mark2001 Says:

    Yeah…they are calling absolutely no holding …on Dallas.

  322. BuccoDav Says:

    Someone needs to put a hit on these receivers and make them skittish.

  323. Buc Neckid Says:

    At Least Cockrell can tackle

  324. Wesley Says:

    Chris Collinsworth is freakin annoying.

  325. Buc Neckid Says:

    Easy Interception… dropped!
    CDIII stop celebrating

  326. BuccoDav Says:

    Damn, Davis!

  327. Wesley Says:

    Dude catch that ball!

  328. Vsyl Says:

    This defense is really terrible tonight. Not stopping anything.

  329. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I’m incredibly impressed with Prescott. First game action since that horrendous injury in game 5 last year. Very impressive.
    What a choke job by the kicker!

  330. cmurda Says:

    Shizank. Wide left

  331. EA Says:

    aight lets put this baby to sleep now

  332. Vsyl Says:

    Finally a stop

  333. Buc Neckid Says:

    Going to go up by two tuddies at the half

  334. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Pretty obvious why our run defense is so good. You’re better off passing on us.

  335. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Let me guess, Anger was the holder on that FG attempt.

  336. David Says:

    😂 missed FG
    To quote Loki from Ragnorak… “That’s how that feels!”

  337. Rod Munch Says:

    At first look that looked like Davis should have had that, but on the replay that really would have been an incredible catch if he got it. In any case it didn’t end up mattering.

  338. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    WOW…survived some bad non-calls by the refs!!! Don’t know how many holds I saw against our rushers but the refs are not watching!! Nice shank on the kick too!!

  339. Beej Says:

    yeah, I figured little from Dak. Anyhow, they missed the field goal, we lucked out

  340. mark2001 Says:

    It all starts with putting pressure on Dak…and we haven’t gotten too much on him yet.

  341. David Says:

    To say Davis should’ve intercepted that is ridiculous. He’s playing the outside with the receiver, to turn around and catch that would’ve been an incredible interception

  342. Richard Dickson Says:

    The Bowden Special!

  343. Rod Munch Says:

    For as terrible as the Bucs defense has looked, they’ve only given up 7 points.

    If the offense can get a score here, I’ll be happy.

  344. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I trust Todd Bowles will make some much needed adjustments at halftime.
    Let’s get another TD first.

  345. Buc Neckid Says:


  346. David Says:


  347. 123urout Says:


  348. Wesley Says:

    Stop running on EVERY first down!

  349. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    WTF?!?! COME ON RJ

  350. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Sure, no complacency here. We are so ready to 25-0.

  351. cmurda Says:

    ROJO says here, try again. This dude is infuriating. All kinds of talent and a lot of carelessness.

  352. Navfree17 Says:

    We are up 14-7 with the ball. You “guys” must have amazing girls to deal with your emotional instability!

  353. Bucschamp Says:

    Dallas kicker way off lol

  354. Buc Neckid Says:

    Almost like the missed field goal did not happen

  355. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Sloppy football. Well this will be a wake up call game.

  356. mark2001 Says:

    That is the key…pressure Dak.

  357. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go D!

    Pick us up. Damn RoJo. Got to catch it better, and not fumble. Good play by the DE, but damn.

  358. Buc Neckid Says:

    Why cant our DB’s look back at the QB?

  359. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    For those of you who want to consider Rojo an elite back, think again.

  360. Rod Munch Says:

    BTW, that was 6 series, and 6 runs up the middle to start the series.

  361. SteveK Says:

    Frustrating for RoJo bc it seems like a lack of concentration

  362. VSyl Says:

    Every first down is a run in the middle. It’s not working!!!

  363. mark2001 Says:

    No sacks on Dak yet. Have to get to him.

  364. Rod Munch Says:

    Rojo got the ball knocked out, it’s not like he dropped it or wasn’t paying attention. Chill out people. He screwed up and Arians will probably bench him for the rest of the game and start anew next week.

  365. cmurda Says:

    Winfield got deked easy there. Come on young man. Don’t play scared

  366. Wesley Says:

    Guys backing up too much.

  367. David Says:

    They really need to get pressure!!
    They just brought 7 and didn’t get to him!

  368. Buc Neckid Says:

    Tryon is in

  369. PassingThru Says:

    We were running the ball too damn much anyway

  370. Buc Neckid Says:

    Cockrell is an upgrade on Dean

  371. mark2001 Says:

    D sucks…can’t even get to him when he puts the ball on the ground.

  372. cmurda Says:

    Jamel Dean. My goodness dude. What are you doing. Running circles around the receiver with zero idea where the ball is. Shake it off offense and stop running the ball every freaking first down.

  373. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Bowles is way way out coached tonight. They have an answer for everything.

  374. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Yup, Wesley, it’s like the Mike Smith days all over again.

  375. BradyBucs Says:


    Davis, Dean, and SMB are NOT good cover guys. Such a joke all the hype about the “Gravediggers.”

  376. SteveK Says:

    Pick it up, Bucs! Let’s go Boys!!!

  377. rrsrq Says:

    Did the Cowboys get a former Bucs kicker

  378. Rod Munch Says:

    How will Leftwich respond?

    Want to guess?

  379. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    SOB this D is very susceptible to the quick routes and timing/back shoulder passes. Gotta make some kind of adjustment and execute. Sending pressure but NOT getting there!!!

  380. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Cowboys picking up the blitz really well which exposes the secondary. Bench Jones for the night. You fumble you don’t play.

  381. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We need another 7 here. This could come down to a Dallas missed XP or another missed FG.

  382. SteveK Says:

    RoJo needs to send Zuerlin a gift basket for missing that.

  383. mark2001 Says:

    Brady…the main problem is that no one has laid a hand on Dak yet. No DB’s could hold up against good receivers with this soft pass rush.

  384. MadMax Says:

    Gdmn D cant cover passes….thats gonna kill us

  385. mg Says:

    Defense is in need of adjustments.

  386. rrsrq Says:

    The gravediggers only work when there is pressure on the QB, there is no pressure on Dak at all, he can drop the snap and still have time

  387. Rod Munch Says:

    On defense the pressure isn’t getting there.

    Dallas has the 2nd best group of 3 WRs in the league behind the Bucs, you can’t play them man to man and expect to win on the play – you have to get pressure.

  388. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I don’t expect you’ll see Rojo again tonight. Inexcusable.

  389. Wesley Says:

    Well we were a second half team last season. Let’s see if that holds true in this game.

  390. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    All the way to the 19. Such explosion!

  391. Miller5252 Says:

    They need to start pressing these receivers so the line can get home. The gravedigger name is going out the window here really quick. D just looks horrible tonight! Arians should be losing his mind right now a hammering the D.

  392. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Every team this year will attack us with quick passes.

  393. Huh Says:

    Defense SUCKS

  394. Rod Munch Says:

    Hopefully they’ll finally come out in the 2 min offense, let Brady push the pace and get 7.

  395. Buc Neckid Says:

    Gravediggers are eating some humble pie
    Oh to be a fly on the wall at halftime in that locker room
    Maybe that “Rig” on Arians chest is a AED
    He’s going to bananas on the DB’s

  396. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Who’s grave are they digging?

  397. BuccaneerButters Says:

    Stressing me out rn.

  398. PassingThru Says:


  399. SteveK Says:


    Fair point on the RoJo fumble being more of a heads up play by Dallas. But, why does RoJo seem to accrue more drops or fumbles, or other lapses in hand/eye concentration?

    Maybe I notice bc it’s the most critical flaw/only flaw in his game? But, it’s fundamentals. Go Bucs! I hope RoJo gets another chance and houses a long run.

  400. Wesley Says:

    J.C. WTF!

  401. BuccoDav Says:


  402. mark2001 Says:

    Good hands Fournette.

  403. View from 132 Says:

    The Bucs look average. Like 3 months last year. All this 17-0 stuff is lunacy.

  404. EA Says:


  405. Wesley Says:

    Dude just can’t catch.

  406. Rod Munch Says:

    I like the way Mickens put his head down there and ran into the back of his own player. Good stuff.

  407. Colonel Angus Says:

    I think some of you forget Cowboys have a top offense when Dak is healthy. And he looks healthy. Gonna be an entertaining game.

  408. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That goes as an interception. What a FIcking joke! If you’re gonna throw to a back, throw to Bernard. Has he been in the game yet?

  409. Anonymous Says:

    Rough night for the defense, especially the secondary and our inside LBs…

    But not much pass rush either.

    Not surprising, I knew the defense was gonna be spotty to start the year. They were very up and down last year until the playoffs.

  410. HC Grover Says:

    Jones get him out. Put Tryon in there.

  411. MadMax Says:

    Theyre too lazy back there relying on the oass rush,……get it in gear you POS DB’s

  412. Buc Neckid Says:

    Dallas D is NOT taking over the game

  413. mg Says:

    Get your fricking head in the game.

  414. Huh Says:



  415. cmurda Says:

    Get every frigging running back off the field and go 5 wide every time. Wow. Larry. That is pretty embarrassing. Double digit favored team doing this because of our running backs. This is unacceptable.

  416. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    WTF!!! WTF!!!

  417. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Giovanni… anybody seen him?

  418. TheShaz Says:

    I guess there was a reason I felt worried.

    Scroll up I said it and I wasn’t alone.

    The pass rush cant get to Dak and TB12 just threw a pick

  419. SteveK Says:

    And now Fournette screwed up.

    Damn it RBs. Grow some balls and concentrate. Shoot!!!!!

  420. Buc Neckid Says:

    Dean was toast again

  421. webster Says:

    Buc fans this is why i told u do not count out the cowboys and dak or any team. This is the nfl

  422. PassingThru Says:

    Layoff Lennie.

  423. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:


  424. mark2001 Says:

    Somebody get pressure on Dak…

  425. Rod Munch Says:

    Why the F— are they not in the 2 min offense.

    Come out in shotgun and move it right down the field, Brady is on fire tonight and these stupid play calls are killing the offense.

  426. Jmart2470 Says:

    We go out and get Bernard to throw to stone-handed Fournette?!?!?!

  427. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Dean is back to being a spectator

  428. King C Says:

    *This is fine meme*
    LOL time to put Gio Bernard in

  429. Buc Neckid Says:

    I’d put Gio in at RB the rest of the game

  430. SteveK Says:

    That pick is on Fournette and his Jack ass butter fingers. Not on Brady.

  431. VSyl Says:

    Why tf bernard is not playing these type of calls?????

  432. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Well this game is over. This defense has been on the field the whole second quarter and the offense can’t stop turning the ball over.

  433. unbelievable Says:

    Well that sucks.

    Secondary and inside LBers been getting abused tonight! Then again, pass rush is MIA as well.

    Not totally surprised, defense was very up and down last year and I knew they weren’t gonna start they way they finished last year.

  434. mark2001 Says:

    Lucky to be down only 2.

  435. Wesley Says:

    Just gifted them 9 points.

  436. cmurda Says:

    Why LVD. WHY. Can anybody on this team make a play. The good news is this is about as bad as it can get for a team that is so much better than this nonsense.

  437. Rod Munch Says:

    We do not need a running game, just throw the stupid football to our all-pro receivers and we put up 60 points.

  438. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    I hope in the next draft we can draft a premiere running back

  439. Jerry Says:

    RBs giving the game away.

  440. Colonel Angus Says:

    We need to lose tonight anyways. Lost game 1 in 2002 and 2020. We don’t want to jinx the back to back!

  441. King C Says:

    The Bucs as a big fave at home is a bad play historically
    But the Cowboys being clutch is worse

  442. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    We’ll all off season we kept hearing how these veterans would have the team ready and there would be no drop off in production…SO FAR, not impressed!!!

  443. SBucs Says:

    Oh I forgot… it’s a night game

  444. VSyl Says:

    That’s the spirit we need, lavonte’s reaction after not catching the ball

  445. 123urout Says:

    Lets go!! 3 minute offense

  446. PassingThru Says:

    We need to score before halftime

  447. Rod Munch Says:

    Colonel Angus – yeah but those two opening loses were to the stupid Saints. That lose game X only works with the Saints and the Bucs SB, where they’re 0-4 vs Saints in the regular season in SB winning seasons.

  448. BuccoDav Says:

    Good return. Flag?

  449. mark2001 Says:

    Now you see why I don’t bet on football.

  450. Beej Says:

    WTG Mick!

  451. VSyl Says:

    Stop running and throw the damn ball!

  452. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Yup, we can’t play worse. I’ve never been a Mickens fan, but he’s had a nice punt return and a nice kickoff return.

  453. Wesley Says:


  454. David Says:

    bam!!!! 💥

  455. EA Says:


  456. 123urout Says:

    That was amzing!

  457. NaplesBucsFan Says:


  458. BuccoDav Says:

    AB Baby!

  459. Buc Neckid Says:

    AB is this year’s Scooter but better

  460. PassingThru Says:


  461. Rod Munch Says:

    The Cowboys aren’t doing anything – it’s a stupid fumble and butter fingers and some terrible play calling by Leftwich.

    Just let Brady throw it from shotgun and we win by 28.

    Just get out of the way.

  462. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    BOOM! That was pretty GD easy!

  463. cmurda Says:

    Great response. Wow. What a throw and catch. That’s how it’s done. Come on defense. Make a play

  464. 123urout Says:

    I was not expecting that to be so quick

  465. Beej Says:


  466. Wesley Says:

    Let’s get this ball back and score again.

  467. MadMax Says:

    There it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  468. SteveK Says:

    Let’s roll O

  469. Bojim Says:

    So Prescott is rusty and coming off injury and we’ll chase him all night. When does that start? When do we dominant Americas team?

  470. Wesley Says:

    Is Miller even playing tonight?

  471. SteveK Says:

    Alivin: When you #3 wide out is AB..this is what happens

  473. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    3 TUDDIES!!!

  474. SteveK Says:

    Brady on the sidelines telling Bruce, LFG- and get me the ball back!

  475. PassingThru Says:

    Ok stop ’em.

  476. TheShaz Says:

    Will Brady and the offense have to carry the defense for two more quarters to wing the gamer?

  477. Rod Munch Says:

    Stop holding the offense back Leftwich you dullard.

    Throw it, throw it and throw it more.

    It’s not 1955, we don’t need to meet a run quota.

    Come out in shotgun, get up by 28, then you can run all you want.

  478. King C Says:

    AB is the best player on the field tonight. Getting wide open is a skill that few possess

  479. David Says:

    Time for the defense to step up and get a turnover!!!

  480. Miller5252 Says:

    Let’s just put Miller in the backfield and we’ll go away from running if these guys keep doing this. C’mon D!!

  481. Navfree17 Says:

    Does it matter if the both compliment each other. The D will make adjustments

  482. Rod Munch Says:

    Miller is the #4 WR and half are plays are running up the middle and you’ve had 2 turnovers. You generally need some more plays before you’re getting to your #4 WR.

  483. unbelievable Says:

    Secondary and inside LBers are getting worked!

  484. VSyl Says:

    Man, what else Byron needs??? Just pass the ball

  485. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Navfree17, I started AB and Brady in my fantasy league this week.

  486. unbelievable Says:

    But lol at whoever said the game was over before. Just hahaha

  487. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    But, I left Gronk on the bench.

  488. Buc Neckid Says:

    we should always be a Throw First offense with the GOAT
    Eff the Run

  489. cmurda Says:

    Come on D Line. You gotta get some pressure on Dak. Clean pocket all game so far

  490. Chris Says:

    Should’ve play brown instead of starting Evans in my fantasy

  491. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    That DB didn’t realize who the f@ck he was covering…who plays on AB’s hip like that and not expect to be beat?!?!

  492. Wesley Says:

    Come on Bowles figure it out.

  493. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Buc offense can do whatever it wants. Unfortunately so can the Cowboys.

  494. Buc Neckid Says:

    I started Rojo and the BUCS defense
    At least Succop has got me 3 points
    (hahahahahaha… I Suck)

  495. SteveK Says:

    Let’s get a turnover and give it back to Brady

  496. Richard Dickson Says:

    Play some D and we might get a Brady Before the Half Special.

  497. Rod Munch Says:

    I have AB on pretty much every fantasy team I got, said all off season he’d be the Bucs leading WR — and he was ultra cheap to get. But, as teams shift to putting the focus on him, it will mean Evans and Godwin also have their big games, and Evans will likely end up with the most yards and TDs, but AB will have the catches, and only be slightly behind on the other two.

    Also predicting Brady has a HUGE season – and this is why. If stupid Leftwich will get out of the way, this will be a historic year.

  498. Jon Says:

    What if the problem was Brian Anger thr entire time?

  499. HC Grover Says:

    go to 3 4 D This ain’t workin bring in Tryon.

  500. 123urout Says:

    Bucs D hopefully will make adjustments at the half.

  501. Rod Munch Says:

    I got Brown and Cee Cee Lamb… so I’m racking up the points.

    But I also have Rojo, so… ugh.

  502. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Weren’t we about the least penalized team in the league last year? WTF? Dean!

  503. BuccoDav Says:


  504. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    Where is our defensive line. Non exsistant tonight

  505. cmurda Says:

    There’s also facemask which was the pass interference. What? GTFOH. Where does the NFL come up with this stuff.

  506. PassingThru Says:

    BS call on the face mask

  507. Wesley Says:

    Ffs we need secondary help.

  508. VSyl Says:

    Anyone there is better than Dean

  509. Rod Munch Says:


  510. Buc Neckid Says:

    No Pressure… Again

  511. UKBuccaneer Says:

    PI and face mask? Damn.

  512. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Is Devin White playing tonight or is he just riding his horse around the stadium?

  513. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh f000000000k off you stupid fudging refs

  514. Wesley Says:

    Is Mike Smith back?

  515. PassingThru Says:

    I want to see some serious defensive adjustments after the half.

  516. cmurda Says:

    Todd. STOP the 20 yard cushion. Dak has struggled throwing it deep. Why give him easy passes?

  517. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Pretty clear. Throw at Dean.

  518. Colonel Angus Says:

    Holy sh!t that was a terrible call

  519. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Jamal Dean sucks and the Cowboys know it.

  520. HC Grover Says:

    Zero pressur on Dallas by our D.

  521. Buc Neckid Says:

    Dean NEVER looks back to the QB

  522. cmurda Says:

    Clean pocket. All day. White can’t be expected to cover for 5 seconds. D Line is MIA

  523. BuccaneerButters Says:

    Dean is getting destroyed

  524. Rod Munch Says:

    These are good WRs, if you don’t get pressure, you’re not going win playing man-to-man. You have to get pressure.

  525. 123urout Says:

    Where are the Bucs pass rushers !!!!

  526. Buc Neckid Says:

    CDIII claiming victory on the throw away

  527. HC Grover Says:

    4/3 no good.

  528. Buc Neckid Says:


  529. Rod Munch Says:

    Why is White back in coverage against one of the fastest WR’s in the NFL.

  530. BuccoDav Says:

    About damn time!

  531. Wesley Says:

    T.o. Wtf

  532. PassingThru Says:

    Had to be hold

  533. cmurda Says:

    No Bruce. Decline that.

  534. Wesley Says:

    Shoulda called a time out.

  535. Buc Neckid Says:

    Another “sack”

  536. cmurda Says:

    Wait. 3rd and 32. Nevermind. Good call BA

  537. HC Grover Says:

    Like I said TRYON

  538. SteveK Says:

    Let’s go boys!

  539. Spider Buc Says:

    This defense will cost us the game!!!

  540. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    JTS is a physical specimen. He’s going to be really good!

  541. Colonel Angus Says:

    This is what good defense’s do. Make some 2nd half adjustments and take over this game.

  542. PassingThru Says:

    Oh shirt, not Ghosting. What happened

  543. Wesley Says:

    Come on Goldy be alright.

  544. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    It’s about time we brought the championship effort. Dallas brought it from the kickoff.

  545. Rod Munch Says:

    Hopefully just cramps.

  546. cmurda Says:

    Dumb decision to kick that. Although I’m not going to lie. I thought he made it.

  547. SteveK Says:

    Block this!

  548. PassingThru Says:

    Nothing there for Brady

  549. Rod Munch Says:

    Long FGs on a hot and humid night, balls are heavy, asking a lot to make that.

  550. PassingThru Says:

    Ok shot at the end zone

  551. Buc Neckid Says:

    And that’s another cheap interception

  552. BomTrady Says:

    Not wise at all

  553. cmurda Says:

    It’s a quick out Tyler. Key word is quick. He needs to be there. He rounded out that route

  554. David Says:

    The old man just threw it about 65 yards in the air

  555. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Hmmm. Who has the better team? Bucs behind in the turnover battle 3-0 and lead the game 21-16.

  556. Wesley Says:

    Those are 2 int’s that really shouldn’t count. I’m sure JW fans are excited about em though.

  557. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Alright, Bucs we’re probably THE BEST at halftime game planning last year…let’s see if they can do it again this year!!

  558. Rod Munch Says:

    If it was Winston with that first half you know you drops would be saying Winston is costing the Bucs the game with two interceptions.

    You frauds know for a fact that is what you’d be focusing on. Be honest.

  559. King C Says:

    Nobody look at the typical results when a team is minus 3 in turnover margin

  560. 123urout Says:

    Ok. Opening night jitters is done! Time for the defense to start playing like a superbowl champs. Same with our RB’s.

  561. VSyl Says:

    Tom Brady showing that arm strength. Amazing

  562. Colonel Angus Says:

    Despite everything, Bucs lead at half. Let’s see what adjustments Bowles makes.

  563. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Give it a rest Munch.

  564. David Says:

    Dean needs to step it up.
    I will say the pass rush is getting closer and closer, forcing Dak to act quicker.

    The biggest thing, The great equalizer ……

  565. Colonel Angus Says:

    Rod the difference is Brady has 7 rings and one hell of a track record.

  566. Rod Munch Says:

    That was a terrible defensive first half, some truly insanely bad offensive play calling, and we’re still up by 5.

    It’s good to be the SB champs.

  567. Buc Neckid Says:

    Balls are Heavy

  568. Athlete Says:

    Go figure… Bucs 3 TD 2 int….. any QB can do it here!!!!

  569. BradyBucs Says:


    You’re an idiot. No one would blame Winston for an INT on a Hail Mary or the fact that Lenny had the ball squirt off his hands.

    Trust me, Winston threw a lot worse INTs than that for people to rightfully complain about.

  570. King C Says:

    Rod After winning a Super Bowl, trying to compare Brady to Winston is just being a troll

  571. PassingThru Says:

    Underwhelming start. I hated the early predictable running plays. Yes you need to mix up passing with some running plays, but I hated the mix.

    I expected more pressure on Dak. The Dallas O line has done great job containing them

  572. David Says:

    I don’t care who is QB, no one’s going to blame the quarterback for a running back letting a ball go through his hands and getting intercepted on a Hail Mary. LoL.
    Give it a f’cking rest dude … Winston sucks and is gone.
    You’re alledged team won a freaking Super Bowl last year… Move the F on

  573. SteveK Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    September 9th, 2021 at 10:08 pm
    If it was Winston with that first half you know you drops would be saying Winston is costing the Bucs the game with two interceptions.

    You frauds know for a fact that is what you’d be focusing on. Be honest.



    4:1 TD-Turnover ratio last year, and a SB for us provide the benefit of the doubt. Plus, the pick to Fournette was on Lenny.

    Bottom line, Jameis had many, many mistakes and turnovers. Much greater rate than the GOAT, but I see your point.

  574. Mike C Says:

    Yeah because those Ints were just like #3 with his pick 6, a tip and a hail Mary Apples and 🍊s my friend.

  575. Athlete Says:

    BradyBucs… every interception counts against QB regardless of who’s fault it is. If I recall correctly, 30 for the Bucs last QB,, half of them his fault

  576. SteveK Says:

    Let’s come out and keep freeing up Shaq to run down Dak!

  577. JimmyJack Says:

    Very fun game. The chess match against our defense is fun to watch and the key is 1st down. If we can get them to 2nd and 10 its game over but we have had fots trying to stop them on 1st.

    The injury to SMB is awful right now and Dean is getting targeted bigtime. He has gotta get it together in the half.

    Would like to see us run the ball a bit more. Mainly because its working and getting pisitive yards 2nd our defense could benefit from a longer drive or 2. 3rd the few times Brady has been pressured has been on 1st……..And they have no answers to cover Chris Godwin. If it come down to I like Brady to lead us to victory, kinda hard to stop him if he has a reciever you cant guard.

    Last WTF is a 30 yard pentalty? I didnt pay attention but did that thing actually go for 30? Thats literally noteven a rule as far as i know……Im really tired of being a fan of this game and not being able to understand the rules. Total BS.

  578. JimmyJack Says:

    Hey does anybody wanna talk about Jameis to me?

  579. Rod Munch Says:

    BradyBucs Says: You’re an idiot. No one would blame Winston for an INT on a Hail Mary or the fact that Lenny had the ball squirt off his hands.


    LOL! Are you new here? Because if you’re not, then you’d know that yes, they’d be blaming Winston and talking about how well the defense is playing. Literally.

    But I’m just having some fun, no need to get your panties in a bunch.

  580. Bucc941 Says:

    Where tf is Mike Evans?

  581. Rod Munch Says:

    Did you just see Brees make the OK symbol on live TV!?!

    WOW. Cancelled.

  582. PassingThru Says:

    The INT in the end zone wasn’t a big deal. What was a big deal was the receivers not getting separation on the earlier downs.

    It’s the first game of the season and it shows

  583. Wesley Says:

    Cowgirls should have 7 points.

  584. Miller5252 Says:

    The D needs to remember it’s a new year and quit thinking you can shutdown the Cowboys like you did the Chiefs. The D line is getting closer and closer but that back end needs to give em a little help. Time to shut em down and score 40!

  585. SteveK Says:

    Can’t wait!

  586. Buc Neckid Says:

    Time for some Defense

  587. Leighroy Says:

    Tom Brady on pace for 102 Touchdowns and 68 interceptions this year!

  588. BuccaneerButters Says:

    Defense needs to wake up. Looked like we’re getting there. Drop the hammer and get Prescott to the ground. He needs to get hit.

  589. BucfaninMi Says:

    Second half is always better. Bowles will adjust and Brady is Brady.

  590. Buc Neckid Says:

    Is Cameron Brate Active?

  591. Wesley Says:

    @Rod- only because JW was prone to turnovers. Brady is not. Don’t be dumb.

  592. August 1976 Buc Says:

    We know what Dallas thinks of Dean. The Mike Smith SCARED defense has reared its ugly head tonight. Why line up and concede a fisrt down. ?????????????

  593. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Rod, I like your observations about running up the gut predictably on 1st down. However, you know your comparisons with Brady and Jay Miss are ludicrous. Nobody cares about a Hail Mary interception and the first one was completely on Lenny.

  594. PassingThru Says:

    Please, less predictable running plays

  595. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Jay Miss is the king of the “WTF” interception. As Carly Simon sang, “Nobody Does It Better.”

  596. Jeffbuc Says:

    Dak is only throwing to his left. Dean is getting wore out. I ha e never heard of a double penalty. Pass interference due to grabbing his face mask spot of foul penalty on top of that 15 yard face mask penalty. Never heard of that in my life. Face mask was the pass interference so that is the penalty

  597. JimmyJack Says:

    Goons still worried about pkaycalling when Leftwitch has schemed recievers wide open all night.

  598. Buc Neckid Says:

    Finally a CB breaking on a pass

  599. PassingThru Says:

    Looked like less padding in coverage

  600. Buc Neckid Says:


  601. PassingThru Says:

    Damn dropping like flies

  602. cmurda Says:

    Oh no. We are so thin at safety

  603. Will Says:

    You just came out of halftime. That’s ridiculous

  604. Wesley Says:

    Only a cramp.

  605. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    How do you get a cramp 22 seconds into the 2nd half?

  606. View from 132 Says:

    People are critical of having a cramp? It happens folks.

  607. Wesley Says:

    Way too easy.

  608. cmurda Says:

    Jeez Cockrell. You weren’t even in the right zip code. This is brutal.

  609. ClodHopper Says:

    Defense is playing the potus package cuz they’re sleepy.

  610. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    We will be fine, just have to cut out the turnovers, and get some pressure on Prescott.

  611. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I’m starting to think we’ll need 40 to win this game. The gravediggers continue to dig their own.

  612. Jmarkbuc Says:

    The only graves being dug are our own

  613. PassingThru Says:

    When you let a QB get into a rhythm….

  614. Rod Munch Says:

    Guys, the Cowboys have amazing WRs and a very good QB, you can not play man to man and expect to win. You have to get pressure.

    Stop focusing on the DB’s, it’s all about the pressure.

  615. Wesley Says:

    Cannot make a 3rd down stop.

  616. cmurda Says:

    D Line. Where you at?

  617. Rod Munch Says:

    Damn, Adams just signed and he’s in the game.

  618. PassingThru Says:


  619. cmurda Says:

    Of course that’s a flag. We are breathing on defense. That’s illegal

  620. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Do Goodell and the refs want a Cowgirls upset tonight?

  621. Wesley Says:

    B.S. flag there!

  622. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Refs are garbage tonight. Trying to keep it close.

  623. Wesley Says:

    Terrible call just weak a.f..

  624. Jugheadfla Says:

    That was one of the worst PI calls I’ve ever seen

  625. Rod Munch Says:

    WTD did they just call?

  626. Wesley Says:

    No adjustments made wtf!

  627. cmurda Says:

    Throw against Cockrell. Throw against Dean. This is too easy Todd.

  628. Richard Dickson Says:

    Has there been anyone near a receiver on this drive?

  629. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Somebody tell our secondary if they wanna just watch, then buy a ticket.

  630. Rod Munch Says:

    Not even trying to run the football…

    Hear that Leftwich you idiot.

  631. Wesley Says:

    Touchdown incoming.

  632. PassingThru Says:

    Good stop by Adams

  633. cmurda Says:

    Andrew Adams. Play of the game. Circle that one. He gets deked a few inches there and Zeke is in. Great play AA

  634. Wesley Says:


  635. Rod Munch Says:

    Why wasn’t Vita in the game on 3rd and goal?

  636. Scott Says:

    Way to go Adams

  637. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Defense and Bowles are being completely out schemed. No answers.

  638. TheShaz Says:

    Send a bottle of oxygen STAT to Ruskin

  639. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We need to just line up with 4 or 5 wide and take it down the field. This is bullspit!

  640. Anonymous Says:

    Adams always seems to make plays

  641. Colonel Angus Says:

    Bend but don’t break. Go get 7 here offense.

  642. cmurda Says:

    Cooper is running the comeback route almost exclusively. I hope Todd brings our corners tight with middle help and dare Dak to beat us deep. His balls down the field have been off.

  643. Rod Munch Says:

    The Cowboys have a good offense people. The offense has turned it over twice, deep in Bucs territory, and it’s still a 2 point lead for Tampa.

    The Cowboys are going to score points, that doesn’t mean the defense sucks.

    It means the Bucs offense needs to score more points, which will happen if Leftwich just lets Brady sit back in shotgun and throw the football.

  644. 123urout Says:

    The way Cowgirls are playing, they deserve to be called Cowboys tonight 🤣

  645. Buc Neckid Says:

    Mickens looks better tonight

  646. Miller5252 Says:

    Offense needs to go down the field and score, take like 10 min off the clock and give the D a chance to rest and get stuff figured. Need a TD though because the cowboys are going to score on us.

  647. Rod Munch Says:

    They need to show highlights from the 2000 Tampa vs St Louis game, one of the best MNF games of all time.

    Such an amazing crowd, insane crowd. Such a fun game to be at.

  648. Buc Neckid Says:

    oh Sh!t
    Need to get some rhythm

  649. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Step it up Bucs. Underperforming ends now. Lets go!

  650. Buc Neckid Says:

    on Wirfs?!?!?

  651. Wesley Says:

    Spread out this offense!

  652. Rod Munch Says:

    Steve DeBerg, opening day QB for the 1987 Bucs, got a 45-10 win vs Atlanta.

  653. cmurda Says:

    Yuck. Really yuck. O line looks like booty. The whole team is off right now. Refs not helping

  654. PassingThru Says:

    Even Wirfs is having problems

  655. cmurda Says:

    The playcalling is suspect on offense. We have not even attempted a run. Look all off. Lets make a play

  656. TheShaz Says:

    This feels like the Chicago game last year……just sayin

  657. Rod Munch Says:

    There was no holding on that. I mean it doesn’t matter, but that wasn’t holding. Fraud refs.

  658. Boltsfan17 Says:

    3 and out after the D is on the field so much already. Cowboys have been better all night.

  659. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I was at that game Munch. We scalped 3 tickets for a total of $15.00.

  660. Rod Munch Says:

    The Chicago game last year, the Bucs couldn’t move the ball, this is literally nothing like that.

  661. BomTrady Says:

    Rod, I was at that game with my Dad, I was the tender age of 16. I remember those HOT days at the old sombrero on those uncomfortable metal bleachers.

  662. David Says:

    This has been pretty ugly so far. Sometimes you got to a squeak out a win like that. They need to suck it up and tighten it up!

  663. Will Says:

    We’re not looking good at all.

  664. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – Every game was sold out back then, legit sellouts, why would they be scalping tickets for $5 a pop? What a terrible scalper.

  665. SBucs Says:

    Is there t too much to ask for the Bucs defense to get a turnaround vet?

  666. Jugheadfla Says:

    Need a turnover in the worst way

  667. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    If we keep playing like this, we are going to lose.

  668. cmurda Says:

    If the refs even try it right now.

  669. Rod Munch Says:

    Guys we’re still up by 2 points, for now.

    The offense will be fine, they always stink on the opening drive of any series where Leftwich preplans the calls, like to start the game or coming out of halftime.

    The offense will get 7 on the next series, just need to the defense to get a stop and we’re good.

  670. Wesley Says:

    This ref just wants tv time.

  671. cmurda Says:

    Of course the zebras had to ruin the play. Thats not a block in the back you moron refs

  672. David Says:

    Where is EVANS!?!?!?

  673. cmurda Says:

    Lets go offense. Finish this with a TD!

  674. Buc Neckid Says:

    Rojo in the Dog House

  675. Wesley Says:

    Terrible play call there.

  676. Buc Neckid Says:

    2 Tuddies

  677. Wesley Says:

    That’s more like it!

  678. PassingThru Says:

    Great play by Tommy Boy and Gronk

  679. PassingThru Says:

    Cover 0, gave up on pass defense for pressure

  680. cmurda Says:

    What an incredible audible by two legends. Don’t worry David. Evans going to get his in the 4th quarter

  681. TheShaz Says:

    Need that 2nd bottle of oxygen – I screamed over the TD and used up the last bottle

  682. Will Says:

    Much better on that defensive and offensive series

  683. Athlete Says:

    New England Bucs!!!!! Unstoppable!!!!

  684. Miller5252 Says:

    Great call by the OC and great execution by Brady! Great looking play and call!! We need another D. Time to sack and bury Dax.

  685. Rod Munch Says:

    I have Brown and CeeDee on my FF team…

    Was just checking the score… and my opponent is starting Gronk. Mother F-er.

  686. Allen Says:

    I swear Brady succeeds in spite of the bad play calls. That’s why he is the GOAT.

  687. David Says:

    They did this at one point last year. Rojo fumbles and he disappeared for like two games.
    Give him the damn ball back.
    Fournette drops passes left and right and cost an interception early in the game but he gets away with it.

    Nothing against Lenny, just pointing out that Rojo never seems to have any leeway at all. That wasn’t even really a fumble on his part so much as a great defensive play

  688. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Touchdown! Love it!!! Collinsworth is just totally in love with the Cowboys.

  689. 123urout Says:

    Imagine All NFL teams watching and analyzing this game. So difficult to win in the NFL.

  690. Miller5252 Says:

    Need to quit scheduling Tampa on prime time. Man, they just can’t figure it out. Let’s blow em up D

  691. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m telling you, those opening series, where Leftwich has a chance to think about things and plan them out – they always stink.

    But series after that, when it’s more on the fly, or Brady is making adjustments, it’s so much better.

    Why the Bucs don’t just run a 2 min offense, I don’t get, Brady moves the ball at will when they speed things up.

  692. David Says:

    Time to stop blitzing so much
    and let the front 4-5 to get the pressure

  693. Rod Munch Says:

    I don’t get the Collinsworth hate, he just did an excellent job of explaining that TD.

  694. King C Says:

    Rojo will rise again of course. Remember he was leading the conference in rush yards for a while last year

  695. cmurda Says:

    The pick happened because we made Dak throw it downfield. Stop giving up the middle of the field

  696. Rod Munch Says:

    If the defense plays soft, Dallas will move it right down the field for 7.

  697. Wesley Says:

    B.S. spotting there!

  698. Boltsfan17 Says:

    D is gassed.

  699. cmurda Says:

    Devin is an inch away. He’s due for a big play

  700. Wesley Says:

    Another horrible spotting. Refs just love to give teams first downs .

  701. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Wow these refs have really pissed me off

  702. Rod Munch Says:

    What I don’t get is why Rojo gets benched for the fumbled, but Fournette kills Brady’s stat line with a BS INT and he’s back in there. Very inconsistent punishments.

  703. Rod Munch Says:

    If you want to stop with something on defense, stop with the delayed blitzes. They’re throwing the ball fast so the pressure never gets there, blitz from the line, not from 5 yards deep.

  704. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Where are our linebackers tonight, particularly White?

  705. Wesley Says:

    Surprised they didn’t spot that a first down.

  706. cmurda Says:

    Easy throw after easy throw. Todd will you stop this backup crap and play tight.

  707. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Prescott injured?! There are lies, damned lies, and then there are injury reports!

  708. PassingThru Says:

    Dinking and dunking all night

  709. Rod Munch Says:

    Again, this is a very very tough offense. They’re going to score — we just need to score more.

    The TO was huge earlier.

  710. Wesley Says:


  711. cmurda Says:

    Cockrell. Way way way too slow. No bueno

  712. PassingThru Says:

    Give them credit, the Dallas O Line has manhandled the Buc pass rush.

  713. Buc Neckid Says:

    Not enough pressure

  714. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Defense is awful tonight.

  715. Jugheadfla Says:

    Cockrell is absolute dogchit

  716. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Joe, you might want to take back “gimpy, rusty Dak”. Your track record with judging quarterbacks is…..not good.

  717. cmurda Says:

    He got beat that badly and held. Yeah. Lets just say SMB is definitely better.

  718. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Good thing we get 10 days off after this game. They are beating the brakes off of our defense.

  719. Wesley Says:

    Pretty sure Mike Smith has taken over play calling.

  720. mg Says:

    Indeed, Passing Thru.

  721. Rod Munch Says:

    Again, these are very very good WRs and a very very good QB.

    If you don’t get pressure, you lose the matchup.

    Our offense just has to out score them.

  722. BucfaninMi Says:

    Defense looks awful, can’t stop $*it!

  723. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I don’t think our d line, linebackers or secondary are having even a close to average game. Not so good on the defensive end of things.

  724. cmurda Says:

    Well, our offense is going to need to score another TD. This is an old-fashioned shootout. The Dallas offense is a very good offense but our defense is getting humbled.

  725. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    This defense sucks

  726. BomTrady Says:

    Dallas is lighting our defense up tonight. They must have invested wisely in an offensive line.

  727. Colonel Angus Says:

    This reminds me of Bucs vs Rams Monday nighter in 2000. Helluva game! We gotta keep scoring TDs.

  728. Jugheadfla Says:

    Put in Delaney and Hagan, can’t be any worse

  729. Jmarkbuc Says:


    We have two starting RB head cases.

  730. Rod Munch Says:

    If this was a Mike Smith defense, the Cowboys would have 45 points right now.

  731. BomTrady Says:

    The last team to score will win this one tonight.

  732. 123urout Says:

    All the sports talk show host are saying Dallas will be crush by the BUCS. That is definitely a bulletin board material for the Cowboys.

  733. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Collinsworth is annoying to listen to but he usually knows what he’s talking about.

  734. Wesley Says:

    Even with a win this game is embarrassing.

  735. GoFor2 Says:

    I thought we had a good defense? They look like ass. No pressure at all on Prescott. What a joke.

  736. PassingThru Says:

    Even if Dak was rusty, we allowed him to get into a passing rhythm. We’re paying the price of not mounting credible pressure.

  737. BomTrady Says:

    I was at that game Colonel, a MNF game, I was in a luxury suite, what a game. Hit Dale Mabry after…..

  738. Miller5252 Says:

    I’m with you Wesley….. Mike Smith is back tonight. Plus it’s prime time and the Bucs suck at that. Offense better put up 45 tonight to win.

  739. Rod Munch Says:

    I have faith in Brady here, he has the lead and just has to protect it by scoring more points.

    If Leftwich doesn’t screw that up, we’re fine.

    Eventually the Cowboys will press to try to make up for the score they’re down and that’s when, hopefully, the defense makes a big play and you cover the 9.5 line.

  740. Wesley Says:

    Mike Evans anyone?

  741. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Don’t run to Durable Donnie’s side…… ever.

  742. Buc Neckid Says:

    the cowgirls are getting rowdy

  743. Rod Munch Says:

    We’re moving the ball at will, why does anyone care who is getting the ball? Evans isn’t getting the ball because other guys are also open.

  744. BomTrady Says:

    We only care about the DUB

  745. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Has anyone seen Rojo since the fumble? He may as well take a shower. Has Bernard played a snap? Vaughn is inactive.

  746. Richard Dickson Says:

    I just wanted some good hard hits on Dak early. Dude hasn’t had contact since Week 9 last year, I wanted him roughed up.

  747. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – No, Rojo got benched for the game. Arians did the same thing in previous years. Rojo will be back next week, but Arians really throws a fit over fumbles.

  748. cmurda Says:

    Pretty is for girls. Let’s grind a W no matter how it looks.

  749. Buc Neckid Says:

    I saw Rojo on the side of a milk carton just now at Publix

  750. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper – I don’t mean literally benched, like if someone is injured he’s still out, but you know what I mean.

  751. Miller5252 Says:

    Need a TD every time the O is on the field. Run it up on em

  752. rrsrq Says:

    All I want is for the defense is to keep them from crossing the 50

  753. Rod Munch Says:

    No grinding out a win.

    Go throw the ball, put up 28 in the 4th quarter, and win by 20 points.

    None of this Mike Shula run the game out BS, if the Bucs do that, they WILL lose.

  754. Wesley Says:

    God I hate that play.

  755. cmurda Says:

    There’s Mike. Lets score boys

  756. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Every time they throw to Fournette, I hold my breath.

  757. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin Scissors Harper Says:
    September 9th, 2021 at 11:06 pm
    Every time they throw to Fournette, I hold my breath.

    Me too.

  758. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    It’s gonna take 40 at least tonight.

  759. cmurda Says:

    Oh man. Come on

  760. Miller5252 Says:

    Think the refs are Cowboy fans. Come on guys let’s go!

  761. PassingThru Says:

    Oh BS, CG had to catch that

  762. Wesley Says:

    No Chris that’s a fairly easy catch.

  763. cmurda Says:

    O M G. Please give me back the real Godwin. He just killed the momentum,.

  764. PassingThru Says:

    Too many dropped passes tonight

  765. DoooshLaRue Says:

    GD Godwin

  766. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Not an easy catch, but if you’re Chris Godwin and you want a long term contract for a ton of money, you gotta come up with that.

  767. Rod Munch Says:

    Go for it, the Cowboys are going to score anyways.

  768. cmurda Says:

    There’s little excuse for all the failure to execute. Plays all over the place and too many drops. A fumble. Ugly. Very ugly

  769. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Good thing we always lose the first game when we win Superbowls

  770. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Wasted opportunity to put real pressure on Dallas.

  771. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    To be fair, these first games are tough without a preseason.

  772. unbelievable Says:


  773. Jmarkbuc Says:

    12 pre season plays just isn’t enough.

  774. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:


  775. BucfaninMi Says:

    They don’t look much like champions tonight.

  776. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Have we forced a single 3 and out in this game? I can’t remember one.

  777. Rod Munch Says:

    If the defense gives up a TD here, I f-ing swear…

    You go for it in this game, when the defense isn’t getting it done.

    We shall see, but this reminds me of every time Dirk would punt in games where he knew the defense couldn’t make a stop.

    Lets hope things are different here.

  778. Wesley Says:

    Turnover time

  779. GoFor2 Says:

    Tom Brady and Gronk showed up to play. Everyone else looks like pee wee football. Unbelievable.

  780. cmurda Says:

    Can’t go for that Rod. CG putting that on the floor is a backbreaker but you have to punt. Defense gets paid too. They need to earn their money

  781. PassingThru Says:

    Lets finish this game with passes to Gronk and AB

  782. Wesley Says:

    Can we make a 3rd down stop?

  783. Wesley Says:

    About f’n time.

  784. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – if they make a stop, you’re right.

  785. cmurda Says:

    That was huge defense. Lets score offense. Come on boys.

  786. UKBuccaneer Says:

    This cowboys offense is pretty legit. This might be a game that looks better a few weeks from now than we’re thinking at this moment.

  787. Buc Neckid Says:

    Offense is dragging ass back onto the field

  788. David Says:

    Need a long drive

  789. Rod Munch Says:

    OK, thank goodness.

    I thought for sure the refs would throw a flag.

  790. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We certainly need another TD here.

  791. Anonymous Says:

    This game is looking a whole like a lot of games last season, Mike Evans barely a factor, Godwin dropping balls, defense line not consistently getting pressure, cornerbacks looking like the weak link, etc.

  792. PassingThru Says:

    The Dallas O Line has been impressive

  793. Rod Munch Says:

    Have to get a TD, keep this extra possession score. I do not trust the defense to make a stop in crunch time. Need to also cover that 9.5 line.

  794. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Why didn’t we upgrade the secondary in the off season Jesus

  795. Miller5252 Says:

    Score a TD here and this game might be finally over! No drops and no passes to the RB’s

  796. 123urout Says:

    In Brady We Trust. Lets get another TD!

  797. PassingThru Says:

    But we gotta stop shooting ourselves in the foot. No.more drops

  798. Rod Munch Says:

    LVMYBUCS – Where are you getting the money to upgrade the secondary?

  799. PassingThru Says:

    Yep more AB and Gronk please

  800. Buc Neckid Says:

    Lenny just made up for the interception

  801. cmurda Says:

    Fournette just took a big step out of the doghouse. Wow. That was scary. OK. Lets score a TD

  802. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Wow. What a break.

  803. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    A Scotty sighting, though it won’t count.

  804. cmurda Says:

    Dammit Marpet. Enough with this shooting ourselves in the foot.

  805. PassingThru Says:

    Our O Line has looked not ready for prime time

  806. Gettinthebucs Says:

    Tom Brady goin full Jameis never go full Jameis😂

  807. Rod Munch Says:

    If you’re not going to play in the preseason, things are going to be sloppy.

  808. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Gotta love Playoff Lenny = Effort

  809. NCFlorIdiot Says:

    Restructure another contract (whose?, I don’t know) … Trade a 3rd round pick for a veteran cornerback

  810. Buc Neckid Says:

    Stay in Bounds

  811. King C Says:

    Bucs have to discipline themselves to score slowly and run clock

  812. Buc Neckid Says:

    3rd and 1

  813. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucs have some money from Evans restructure, but you don’t want to spend it all this early in the season.

  814. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Eat clock. Score TD.

  815. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Sneak Tom!

  816. Buc Neckid Says:

    Doghouse for Godwin

  817. King C Says:

    Quite a turn of events there

  818. 123urout Says:

    oh man !

  819. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Un F@ckingbelieveable! NFW that happened!

  820. cmurda Says:

    Holy moly. Poor Godwin wants to be in Hawaii. Ouch. Major ouch

  821. PassingThru Says:

    I can’t freaking believe DAMNIT GODWIN

  822. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Dammit Godwin

  823. Boltsfan17 Says:

    This loss will come down to so many guys making ridiculous mistakes.

  824. cmurda Says:

    CG has got to see that happening. OMG. This is incredibly brutal.

  825. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Defense better step up

  826. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:


  827. garbs65 Says:


  828. PassingThru Says:

    Face it, AB has passed Godwin

  829. Buc Neckid Says:

    Suck it up D

  830. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We have played TERRIBLY! Glad that dback ran the ball out of the endzone and cost them 10 yards though.

  831. cmurda Says:

    Step up defense. Be the reason for the win. Make the play

  832. King C Says:

    Back to a minus 3 turnover difference is no bueno

  833. 123urout Says:

    This is going to be a field goal kick by dallas

  834. garbs65 Says:

    seriously 4 turnovers

  835. UKBuccaneer Says:

    If we can cough up the ball 4 times against a legit offense and still win (hopefully), we’re in good shape.

  836. Vsyl Says:

    Some players deserve a beat down after the game both by BA and Brady.

  837. cmurda Says:

    No freaking way. Terrible call. He was onside and no movement

  838. PassingThru Says:

    Too many mistakes

  839. Buc Neckid Says:

    C’Mon D

  840. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Just keep piling on the mistakes.

  841. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Damn smh we just were not prepared way to many mistakes

  842. BradentuckeyBuc Says:

    Does Godwin sit on the bench next to RJii the rest of the game now?

  843. Buc Neckid Says:

    Momentum is on Dallas’ side

  844. BomTrady Says:

    Almost impossible to turn the ball over 4 times and win in the NFL

  845. cmurda Says:

    We just need to eat this humble pie I guess. Some brainless stuff happening from the defending Champs. Inexcusable mistakes.

  846. Buc Neckid Says:

    Watch Dallas win by a field goal

  847. cmurda Says:

    Yup. Its happening. The defense is all out of whack and this offense sans Brady was just in la la land.

  848. Capt.Tim Says:

    Might be good for the Bucs.
    Arent gonna win just be walking on the field.

    Man- Gronk and Brown are looking fantastic tonight

  849. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We may end up losing this game by a fuKing point.

  850. Wesley Says:

    We’re gonna lose to these clowns. Absolutely embarrassing on national television.

  851. Vsyl Says:

    Too many faults, too many turnovers, absolutely horrible game. We should be losing by 20+ points…

  852. PassingThru Says:

    Call it a TD you jackoffs so it can be reviewed

  853. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    You know what? If they can drive the length of the field and kick a field goal, we deserve to lose.

  854. Buc Neckid Says:


  855. Rod Munch Says:

    Jesus Christ you people are whiners.

    Just give the ball to Brady with at least 90 seconds and we win. Just don’t let them run out the clock you turds on defense.

  856. cmurda Says:

    I hate to say it. Look at clueless Dean and zero pressure from our well paid D Line. I know the penalty shockingly was called against them but nobody is breathing on Dak. Lets go boys. Make a play and win an ugly one.

  857. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Wow the Cowboys finally committed a penalty tonight. Awful officiating all night.

  858. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Shocked they called that. Cowboys been getting more calls than Kentucky basketball

  859. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Dallas has all the time in the world with 3 timeouts. We HAVE TO GET A GD STOP HERE!

  860. HC Grover Says:

    They gonna lose

  861. Vsyl Says:

    Secondary looking like a Swiss cheese

  862. BucfaninMi Says:

    Same old Bucs.

  863. bucnut2 Says:

    Hey Joe- where is the curb-stomping???

  864. King C Says:

    Difference in the game is two unlikely turnovers and Dak playing one of his best ever games

  865. cmurda Says:

    I really hope the defense picks up CG. He’s so much better than his mistakes tonight.

  866. UKBuccaneer Says:

    I forgot how fickle this place is. Guess we’re done after week 1, huh?

  867. SBucs Says:

    You think the Dallas kicker is sweating right now?

  868. Miller5252 Says:

    At least the Cowboys kicker will miss the field goal to win them the game. Don’t need to make that far if Dean will make one play. He’s been Dax’s pet all night long. Like the Seahawk game all over

  869. Hevcadillac Says:

    Dean and Crockwell, should only play Special Teams!!!

  870. Jmarkbuc Says:

    If we lose it , we earned it.

    Hopefully it shrinks the big heads.

  871. Capt.Tim Says:

    Yup- Im betting the Cowboys drive the field, and kick the Field Goal.
    That kinda night.

    Still say we dont need to break the bank on Godwin.

  872. Richard Dickson Says:

    If I’m going to bright side this, we’ve played like crap and have led or been tied the whole way.

  873. PassingThru Says:

    Terrible pass defense

  874. Buc Neckid Says:


  875. Wesley Says:

    Game over pathetic a.f..

  876. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Game over

  877. Boltsfan17 Says:

    How in the world did this god awful D ever win a super bowl?

  878. 123urout Says:

    at least the Bucs will not have to worry about 17-0 season

  879. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Does Dean even care?

  880. cmurda Says:

    Ok. Shots fired by Jamel Dean. Horrific play and quite frankly we deserve to lose with this trash showing

  881. HC Grover Says:

    This is a real good game. But it was sposed to be a blowout. On any given Thursday.

  882. LVMYBUCS Says:

    how is Dean on this team

  883. Buc Neckid Says:

    This Hochule sucks as much as his father did

  884. Wesley Says:

    Is it hockey season yet?

  885. cmurda Says:

    So much for the defense picking up Godwin. No surprise at all. You don’t give the ball away for no reason 4 times and live to win.

  886. UKBuccaneer Says:

    This team looked worse than this on several occasions last year. Don’t get too low. Don’t get too high. It’s freaking week 1.

  887. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Gotta cut Dean.

    He’s terrible.

  888. garbs65 Says:

    when you have 4 turnovers you deserve to lose

  889. Jugheadfla Says:

    If Godwin doesn’t fumble the ball, we aren’t having this conversation

  890. King C Says:

    I might have jinxed with a #itsabucslife
    But Bucs look good on offense it’s just the secondary getting torched
    No worries either way

  891. BucfaninMi Says:

    Undisciplined, sloppy football.

  892. HC Grover Says:

    And there it is.

  893. Will Says:

    They don’t look good. Godwin has had a bad game and that fumble may be what cost is this game.

  894. HeavyE Says:

    Humble Pie…….

  895. Jeff Says:

    Overrated Team. Simple as that.

  896. Bangkok Buc Says:

    To the Cowboys. Never gonna hear the end if this

  897. 123urout Says:

    Football Gods smiling at Jerry Jones

  898. ElioT Says:

    Looks like a hangover filled with press-clipping reading…

  899. BamaBucs Says:

    Its week 1…It will be ok

  900. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Maybe we should just have all 11 guys fall down in unison and let the Cowboys score a TD. That way, Brady has over a minute and a half and 3 timeouts to drive the field to win.

  901. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Hey Everybody


  902. HC Grover Says:

    Our stars shooted…theyselfs.

  903. Vsyl Says:

    The worst game I have seen in sometime. In many ways worse than the blowout to the saints last season

  904. cmurda Says:

    All the mistakes and Godwin’s fumble was the single biggest disgrace. This could have been a sloppy win but he inexplicably fumbled the ball while protecting it. Baffling.

  905. cmurda Says:

    Bruce. Decline that

  906. Oxycodoms Says:

    Godwin still have a broken pinky?

  907. HC Grover Says:

    As Spock would say…Fascinating.

  908. Wesley Says:

    Decline that wtf?

  909. cmurda Says:

    That was really dumb Bruce

  910. Buc Neckid Says:

    They held vea again on that

  911. King C Says:

    Bruce Arians should have declined that penalty

  912. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We have plenty of time to go down and kick a FG if they make this. However, Succop hasn’t seen the field and has been a bit shaky at times at practice.

  913. HeavyE Says:

    That was another hold on Vita!!!!!

  914. 123urout Says:

    Man, i’m not suppose to be nervous tonight.

  915. King C Says:

    Wasted a timeout and time

  916. HC Grover Says:

    Play of the game now. The decider.

  917. Buc Neckid Says:

    Time for some Brady magic

  918. Colonel Angus Says:

    Relax, Dallas came to play. We dropped a crap ton of balls, Rojo and Godwin have slippery hands and the refs haven’t given us the benefit of the doubt. 4 turnovers, double digits penalties and we still have a chance.

  919. View from 132 Says:

    Goodbye bandwagon. Hope y’all had fun. Rams jerseys on sale.

  920. cmurda Says:

    Well. I guess we need a last second FG because our defense just isn’t quite good enough. Not even close.

  921. HeavyE Says:

    Let’s Go Bucs!!!!

  922. Buc Neckid Says:

    What a Game by Prescott

  923. Jmarkbuc Says:

    TB12 is 5-0 against the Cowboys.

  924. HeavyE Says:

    Scooter Time!!!!

  925. PassingThru Says:

    Brady will probably look for Godwin

  926. Capt.Tim Says:

    Yup. We shoulda known

  927. WorstFans Says:

  929. 123urout Says:

    Lets go Bucs !

  930. cmurda Says:

    Sad sad job by the offense turning the ball over 4 times and none of them were bad throws. Make up for it now and pull this off.

  931. Buc Neckid Says:

    Gio time

  932. Ben green Says:

    I don’t understand why they look so unprepared and uninspired. It’s a long season, but this isn’t good.

  933. cmurda Says:

    Evsans catch the GD ball dude. I dont care if homeboy touched it. Catch the damn ball

  934. HeavyE Says:

    Evans!!!! WTF!!!!

  935. HC Grover Says:

    Oh MY on any given Thursday,

  936. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Has Brady won a game in the last 2 minutes for us?

  937. cmurda Says:

    Wow. This is just rough. Why is that ball not snapped immediately. WTF is going on. Clueless

  938. PassingThru Says:

    As I said, our O Line doesn’t look ready for prime time

  939. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Smith is the eraser

  940. HC Grover Says:

    Big finish! What a game.

  941. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Wow amateur hour. How can you look this bad on national TV

  942. Jmarkbuc Says:

    TB’s bedtime is 9 pm.

  943. PassingThru Says:

    Brady was looking for a flag

  944. cmurda Says:

    Im sure that would have been a long PI against us if the Cowboys needed it

  945. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Don’t leave it on Succop’s foot!

  946. Ben green Says:

    Gronk and Brady playing school yard ball

  947. cmurda Says:

    Godwin redeems himself? Got away with an OPI I dare say. Lets hit it

  948. CitruscountyBuc Says:

    Who is running the offense? I’ve seen Brady shake Byron off a number of times tonight.

  949. Ben green Says:

    Push off

  950. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    My heart is beating out of my chest.

  951. Ben green Says:

    They called that all last year

  952. 123urout Says:

    Succop be my hero please !!!!

  953. PassingThru Says:

    Come on Succup

  954. 123urout Says:

    YES !!!!!!!!!!!!

  955. Jmarkbuc Says:


  956. Ben green Says:

    It’s goooood

  957. Jugheadfla Says:

    Never doubt TB 12

  958. BomTrady Says:

    Squib kick here?

  959. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Damn way to close

  960. BomTrady Says:

    or out of the end zone?

  961. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Wow, we just pulled a victory out of the jaws of defeat.

  962. Ben green Says:

    Very very lucky

  963. UKBuccaneer Says:

    4 turnovers and a week 1 win? I’ll take it.

  964. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    We totally don’t deserve to win this game, but F it, I’ll take it.

  965. BomTrady Says:

    Alvin, the Bucs used to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory

  966. PassingThru Says:

    So hail Mary or laterals

  967. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Passing thru

    I told you so

  968. cmurda Says:

    OH SNAP! Godwin comes through. There will be a lot of talk about the first down “push-off” but I don’t care. He deserved that. Succop is awesome. Icewater in that man’s veins. Pipe down Al Michaels. I’ve seen a lot of Bucs games. Let’s make sure it’s over first.

  969. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Who are the clowns picking WFT to win yhe east? Not me. Dallas finishes pretty good it looks like

  970. cmurda Says:

    Yeah that win is a win baby. Mistake filled or not. It’s a Dubby Dub!

  971. Wesley Says:

    Eat sh*t Cowgirls!

  972. David Says:

    Wow Edwards drilled him!

  973. ClodHopper Says:

    Lol Edwards just had the best tackle of the night.

  974. Athlete Says:

    Kicker making kicks…. Where were the last 6 years.

  975. Colonel Angus Says:

    Good game! We win and my heart was thumping, thats all I ask baby!!

  976. David Says:

    Those games are good early in the year, you get the win but there should be no patting yourself on the back. There’s a lot to clean up

    It’s a W

  977. TheShaz Says:

    That was too close for comfort

  978. JimmyJack Says:

    I will do to Ryan Succop whatever he pleases. Good Lord what a game!!

  979. 123urout Says:

    an ugly WIN is still a win! I’ll take it anyday.

  980. Jmarkbuc Says:

    If we eliminated the mistakes, it would’ve been a snoozer.

    Bucs nearly beating Bucs. TB is all the difference.

  981. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Man we in trouble in the secondary i can deal with the drops and fumbles but geeeeeeeeeeeee secondary is bad

  982. TheShaz Says:


    Before Brady – we lose that game and lose it badly

  983. PassingThru Says:

    Jmark you earned it buddy

  984. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Bucs win! All is right in the world…until the Bucs lose. See you guys at the game next week! Let’s beat the Dixie Chicks!

  985. JimmyJack Says:

    Brady with the game winning drive under 2 mins. Thats a first folks.

  986. HC Grover Says:

    Wonderful! FOOTBALLLL! It is Baaaack.

  987. Jmarkbuc Says:

    10 days rest!!!!!!!!

  988. Wesley Says:

    Shot ourselves in the foot WAY too many times. The better team won. If not for silly turnovers this game is not nearly as close. Having said that this defense has to be much better.

  989. firethecannons Says:

    just fcking wow! Brady Gronk and Succop saved da day!

  990. Rod Munch Says:

    Told ya!

  991. Hawood Jablowme Says:

    Maybe we can trade Howard for a good DB

  992. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:

    BomTrady Says:
    “Alvin, the Bucs used to pull defeat out of the jaws of victory.”

    As coined by Chris Berman. Remember all too well.

  993. FortMyersDave Says:

    Jesus Christ, all I can say is that I am glad the Bucs won. Sloppy, sloppy game and I am sure that many Buc fans probably thought they were gonna have the “big one” if they lost. Well 1-0 is 1-0 albeit sloppy. Lots of things to nitpick starting with the D. Not often you win with 4 turnovers. Bucs have a lot of trouble on prime time for some reason, I am sure Bucco Bruce will be asked about that.

  994. Bucc941 Says:

    Bradley Pinion… low key, was the MVP of this game. We lost the turnover battle and time of possession battle. This game came down to field position.

  995. Richard Dickson Says:

    You have to hand it to the Cowboys. Because we sure as hell almost did.
