Buccaneers-Rams, Open Thread

September 26th, 2021

Yes, the Bucs are wearing pewter today.

Chat right here in the comments section all game long.

Be decent. Be nice. Unless you’re blasting the officials or Rams fans that find there way in here.

Also, heckling Rams kicker Matt Gay is always good.

Go Bucs!

    At the game in LA today. First Bucs game in a while! Here’s to a good game and a good win!

    Go Bucs!

  2. Bucfan593 Says:

    Go BUCS! I hope we roll them!

  3. BuccoDav Says:

    Go Bucs!

  4. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Go Bucs!! 3-0 just win baby!!

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    You see the end of that Lions-Ravens game? WOW…

  6. Bucfan81 Says:

    Looks like the Panthers just offered Sherman a deal. Seems like the kitty cats really want to make a run at the division this year.

  7. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Time for the D to rise…offense needs to keep the foot on the gas!!! LFG!!!
    Bucs 38 Rams 27

  8. JimmyJack Says:

    The bad news is the Saints won. The good news is Winston looks no different. Pick worthy passes all day but managed to get away with them. To be fair one of his ugly passes avtually went for a TD. Had me laughing my but off though.

    Payton is not no superior coach who fixed Jameis, not unless he taught Winston how to throw a ball while falling backwards LOL.

    The 2nd good news is New England looks real bad aside from their passrush. I trust our line to protect Brady for the win next week.

    The 3rd good news needs to be a big Bucs win!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!!!!

  9. Buc Neckid Says:


  10. Dewey Selmon Says:

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

  11. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Right on dewey!!

  12. Natron Says:

    Ram the Rams!!!

  13. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    The vape is charged and the IPA’s are large! Go Bucs and go Dewey! This would be a good win if we can pull it off. JimmyJack is right. Jay Miss looked poor today. KC is 1-2, right Travis Kelce?

  14. JimmyJack Says:

    I say if we play a clean game we win. 1 or 2 big mistakes will likely be the difference today

  15. EA Says:

    Hope our secondary doesn’t give up the booty again, go bucs.

  16. JimmyJack Says:

    Enjoy the game boys.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  17. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Kupp concerns me big time today. He killed us last year with Goof as QB.

  18. RagingBrisket Says:

    First road game in LA is going to be tough. Need to cut out the dumb penalties.

  19. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Make Brate Great Again

  20. unbelievable Says:

    Ughhh cmon Wells!!!

  21. 813bucboi Says:



  22. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Drive killing false start. Not a good punt either.

  23. unbelievable Says:

    Dang. Hate seeing a 3 and out to start. At least pick up some field position before punting.

    Alright defense, let’s see what ya got!

  24. HC Grover Says:

    3 out

  25. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    That’s was sh!tty!!

  26. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Opening game jitters is over. Let’s GO BUCS !!!

  27. Wesley Says:

    Another horrible first offensive series. Shocker.

  28. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Another stupid wasted first down run, flat ignorant. Fire away

  29. unbelievable Says:

    Cmon White turn around and tackle the guy!

  30. HC Grover Says:

    9 makes a play!

  31. BuccoDav Says:

    Tryon with pressure!

  32. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    LFG…h*ll yeah!!

  33. unbelievable Says:

    I’ll take it. Let’s go boys!

  34. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Stop with the first down running $hit…

  35. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    All you gotta do is punch Stafford in the mouth. White had a nice clean shot at him there on first down. Matt not looking so good on those first two throws.

  36. unbelievable Says:

    Gronk Evans Godwin LFG!!!!

  37. 813bucboi Says:

    Good stop

    Let’s go on a nice long drive and get 7


  38. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Play action in 1st…suck up the LBs and hit it over the middle

  39. Rod Munch Says:

    Normally the 2nd drive is when we move the ball and score if we’re going to win the game.

    Lets hope Leftwich doesn’t sabotage it with some sorry a– playcalling. In fairness he had a good week last week and finally mixed things up. But that generally means we have to wait another 12 weeks for another well called game.

  40. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Brady plus our talented receivers and TE, what can go wrong. In New England he only has Edelman and they can win hard fought games. What more right now in BUCs arsenal.

  41. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Are you sure last week Rod that Brady did not audible out of some calls lol Maybe

    Back to the garbage wasted first down run

  42. HC Grover Says:

    Brady wearing boots?

  43. BuccoDav Says:

    go for it

  44. Rod Munch Says:

    August 1976 – he might have, you can generally tell because the pace of play picks up quite a bit. He did in the Dallas game on that 2nd drive for sure.

  45. HC Grover Says:

    Cmon’ D

  46. Rod Munch Says:

    Gino, you run to the stick you moron.

  47. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    What the h#ll throwing it short of the sticks over and over!!?!!?!??

  48. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Very conservative

  49. unbelievable Says:

    Bernard just ran the Mike Glennon special. Ugh.

    Let’s go defense!

  50. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Shouldn’t Bernard run that little route past the sticks? Jeez!

  51. Wesley Says:

    For f@ck sake that target should be on the other side of the first down marker wtf!

  52. Bucsfan81 Says:

    This many weapons and can’t get a damn first down.

  53. Rod Munch Says:

    This is a Leftwich special so far… 2 runs up the gut, some short passes to the TE, a short pass to the RB, 2 punts, Leftwich is loving it!

  54. Buc king Says:

    Well let’s hope defense keeps playing

  55. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Need some screens and quick passes in bunch formations to get that pass rush disrupted

  56. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Maybe a couple sweep runs

  57. Rod Munch Says:

    Should have went for it on 4th down, need 6-inches, you have Brady sneak it and get the 1st. I’ll be shocked if the Rams don’t march right down the field, if they do so, then the Bucs were idiots for not going for it.

  58. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Anyone notice the got the OL graphic backwards? Wirfs and Cappa were LT ans LG and Marpet and Smith were listed as RG and RT, at least they couldn’t get jensen wrong.

  59. EA Says:

    back to back 3 and outs, cant win against a good football team like that

  60. unbelievable Says:


  61. unbelievable Says:

    Yea I was hoping they went for that half yard on 4th.

  62. EA Says:

    well that dropped int says a lot abvout the game today, theyre not ready to play

  63. unbelievable Says:

    Dean come on man!!!!!

    Right in your goddamn hands!

  64. T REX Says:

    gotta catch that pick

  65. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    You cannot POSSIBLY drop that ball Dean!

  66. HC Grover Says:

    Dean could of took it to the end zone.

  67. DaBux Says:


  68. Wesley Says:

    What the F@ck dean that’s a hard ball not to catch. NO EXCUSE for those butterfingers.

  69. webster Says:

    You guys are idiots. Bad play call its lefwich. Good play call its brady. Every commentator that meets with the bucs learn and say how leftwich call plays during their interview of coaches and players leading up to tje game. But sure slight the black man

  70. DaBux Says:

    JTS sighting! Heads up play by the kid.

  71. Vsyl Says:

    That was harder to drop than to hold. How did he manage that???

  72. HC Grover Says:

    43 makes a play!

  73. Natron Says:

    Bruce needs to have a little talk with Dean

  74. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Thank God. The last guy I want to do anything is DJax!

  75. unbelievable Says:


  76. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    D@mn it Dean!!! Golden opportunity f’ed up!!!!

  77. HC Grover Says:

    K lets get going give the D a rest.

  78. Rod Munch Says:

    Got lucky with that – but good stop on the defense. Now lets see if Brady ignores Leftwich and goes and gets us a TD.

  79. Buc king Says:

    Let’s gooooo brady

  80. NaplesBucsFan Says:


  81. Architek Says:

    Relax guys

  82. DaBux Says:

    Playoff Lenny warming up…

  83. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I wish Godwin would learn discretion is the better part of valor and get out of bounds rather than absorb that hit.

  84. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    What a freaking throw!!!

  85. HC Grover Says:

    Accck 2 inch too far.

  86. unbelievable Says:

    Ughhhhhh come on man

  87. Natron Says:

    So far, I like Raheem Morris’s defense a lot!

  88. EA Says:

    They need to settle the freak down.

  89. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    MAN!!!! 2 catches away from a very different game…gotta do something about that pass rush…they are getting too d@mn close and making Brady uncomfortable

  90. unbelievable Says:

    Let’s go defense. Get another stop and pin them back!

  91. 813bucboi Says:

    GRONK gotta catch that


  92. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah the o line is definitely getting tested today.

  93. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucs put up 55 last time they played in LA…

  94. DaBux Says:

    Definitely have to start thinking about keeping Brate in to chip Donald on whichever side he lines up on.

  95. unbelievable Says:

    Cockrell and Winfield getting exposed over and over.

  96. Rod Munch Says:

    No pressure at all…

  97. unbelievable Says:

    Oh great lol

  98. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Back to back horrible coverages

  99. Tony1775 Says:

    CB’s made of glass…..

  100. Bucsfan81 Says:

    We have no back end defense. Probably should just start blitzing non stop.

  101. HC Grover Says:

    Too many dink plays.

  102. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Has OJ Howard played a down yet? Rojo? Say what you want about him, but we can ill afford to lose Dean right now.

  103. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Anybody else see that early contact on the screen…shoulda been a penalty

  104. Rod Munch Says:

    Uh, your #5 corner and safeties are not going to keep up with good WRs – the pressure has to get there, that’s literally what the entire defense is based on. If there is no pressure, the WRs will ALWAYS get open.

  105. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Why is Vita and Suh already resting, the Rams were backed up. ???????????

  106. 813bucboi Says:

    Hold em


  107. EA Says:

    Our offense wont be able to score over 30 today and they do to have shot at the game, too many mistakes.

  108. Rod Munch Says:

    Alvin – we’ve had like 11 plays, calm down.

  109. K-ville Bucs Fan Says:

    Db’s playing like Lovie Smith’s coaching them

  110. August 1976 Buc Says:

    The Bucs better score 40+ going to be ugly coverage all day

  111. Rod Munch Says:

    Now we’re going to a 3 man rush? Yeah, that’s gonna be successful.

  112. Wesley Says:

    We have ZERO secondary depth.

  113. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Opportunities missed!!!! Could be then difference

  114. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Where is the pass rush?

  115. Rod Munch Says:

    Well we knew we had zero depth before the season – but there’s only so much you can do. You don’t need great corners and depth if pressure gets there, but if you can’t get any pressure, the other team’s receivers are going to run wide open all day.

  116. Wesley Says:

    Trash secondary, just trash.

  117. BuccoDav Says:

    Terrible call

  118. Tony1775 Says:

    Our secondary is trash…

  119. HC Grover Says:

    Cockrell having trouble out there again.

  120. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Why the f#ck is the third best CB on their 1 receiver?!?!?!

  121. unbelievable Says:

    What kind of ridiculous spot was that?

  122. Rod Munch Says:

    Cockwell is not fast enough to play in the NFL. It doesn’t matter how smart you are if you can’t keep up with the game. That’s the argument against Sherman as well.

  123. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    CDIII needs to shadow Kupp!!!

  124. 813bucboi Says:

    Is JPP out today?


  125. Natron Says:

    Gotta get the crowd out of this game

  126. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Playing way too soft….not getting pressure….giving up a bit on the runs……too conservative on offense….penalties….dropped interception….I’d say things are going well.

  127. HC Grover Says:

    I hope we can hold them to 3 pts.

  128. Rod Munch Says:

    This looks like one of those garbage Bucs games were terrible coaching on offense doesn’t give us a chance, while the defense can’t get off the field.

    We shall see, but that’s traditionally how this game goes.

  129. Huh Says:

    They gonna score.
    Bucs missed opportunities gonna see them down 7 on the road.
    It was of vital importance to get off to a fast sharp start.


  130. Coburn Says:

    We have already established secondary is beat up and not good. Bottom line offense needs to pick up the slack more. If you’d have told me rams would have no score (banging on the door) at end of 1st q I would have thought we would have a lead

  131. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Come on D!! Tighten up now!!

  132. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Looking like out vaunted offense may have been a little overrated based on the teams we played…first good D and we aren’t looking sharo

  133. unbelievable Says:

    @813 – yes he’s out.

  134. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Glad Stafford has started like this. But again, no rush, and the gimpy secondary is being hung out to dry.

    Game of survival – outscore them or it will a garbage game for the Bucs.

    Can the Bucs actually play a clean game and win? We will see

  135. Coburn Says:

    Naples think that penalty on 3rd and 1 tool a lot of wind out of the sails

  136. unbelievable Says:

    #1 run defense they said…

  137. unbelievable Says:

    White fell down. First down.

  138. HC Grover Says:

    They out dinked us.

  139. DBS Says:

    3 guesses who will blame this all on the offense.

  140. unbelievable Says:

    Isn’t that offensive PI?

  141. August 1976 Buc Says:

    What happened to front 7? The great dissipearing act?

  142. unbelievable Says:

    He’s allowed to make that much contact with White? Should be illegal contact since it was before the ball was thrown. Oh well.

  143. Buczilla Says:

    Ugly af so far, but lot’s of game left. Sign Sherman Licht and trade next year’s number one for a decent corner. Cockrell is gosh awful and has no business being on a football field.

  144. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    What’s that the 4th screen to Higbee????

  145. 813bucboi Says:

    Damn…thx unbelievable

    IMO we’re lacking some juice on defense


  146. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Giving up a 96 yard drive is no bueno.

  147. unbelievable Says:

    Defense is clueless on these screen plays so far. Every single one has worked.

  148. 813bucboi Says:

    Bowles gotta adjust to those screens


  149. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Byron Leftwhich’s inability to scheme will lose this game.

  150. Spicoli Says:

    3rd time they ran that play during this drive… play recognition defense

  151. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Wow, 90+ yard drive for a TD…bend but don’t break…too soon!!! Pathetic!!

  152. 163Doubleplay Says:

    I’m shocked ! 😲

  153. 813bucboi Says:

    Gotta answer offense


  154. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah I agree. JTS was getting some pressure but they look helpless against the quick throws.

    Plenty of time left though. LFG!

  155. Rod Munch Says:

    What a complete garbage defensive drive. Zero pressure, Bowles got way outcoached.

    Lets hope Bowles is saving all his ‘exotic’ blitzes we constantly hear about for the 4th quarter.

    Well lets hope it’s still a game in the 4th quarter.

  156. BerrickDrooks Says:

    we look like crap

  157. BuccoDav Says:

    It looks like our defensive line is over rated.

  158. Swanee22 Says:

    Buccaneers play much better in Second half, after making the adjustments that can’t be made during the speed of game. Brady won’t let us lose.

  159. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Offense needs to do something defense is too banged up. Offense needs to pick up the slack they aren’t going to do it by ramming the ball up the middle 17 times per game.

  160. Stanglassman Says:

    Ineligible receiver downfield On that Pass to Higby.

  161. Bucsfan81 Says:

    I never really expected to beat the Rams. Not really shocking to me with the amount of injuries we have on defense.

  162. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady needs to answer — the question however, is, will Leftwich let him or cripple him with terrible play calling.

  163. Stanglassman Says:

    They had two OL past the line of scrimmage blocking prior to the pass.

  164. Adrnagy Says:

    Not bad. 7-0 at rams. Second qtr.

  165. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    What a joke. This defense sucks

  166. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Well, we were one of the better finishing teams last year…so LFG!!!! Offense needs to give D a rest AND score!!

  167. Swanee22 Says:

    Brady will call plays in second half. You will see a much difference Offense.

  168. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    end of our dream

  169. Rod Munch Says:

    Holy s—, it’s the beginning of the 2nd quarter, quit with the dramaqueen act ladies.

  170. August 1976 Buc Says:

    The Rams are running and throwing at will. Where is the defense ????????

  171. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    it was great….

  172. SBucs Says:

    Too early to despair. Defense will work out the kinks and the offense will get started.

  173. Will Says:

    How have we not learned how to play the screen? Come on guys get it together

  174. Rod Munch Says:

    That’s f–ing PI, that wasn’t their feet tangled you idiot.

  175. 813bucboi Says:

    C’mon Mike


  176. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    the young is taking over…..boy, tom is going to get hurt

  177. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That was a hell of a third down pickup by Bernard.

  178. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Why is everything looking so d@mn hard each play?!!!!

  179. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    o line down…. i guess we are out of champions spot… you can smell it…
    thats fine… we got the superBall

  180. Rod Munch Says:

    It looks hard because the Rams are really really good.

    Do people not pay attention to who the good teams are?

  181. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    now we getting minus yards…..sad

  182. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Darden is no AB

  183. Rod Munch Says:

    Really? the refs are calling up not being lined up directly on the line? The fix is in – that Evans PI non-call, and they call this crap?

  184. Wesley Says:

    Illegal formation wtf? That’s the kind rule the nfl needs to ditch.

  185. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    The most important thing in this game is to make sure Brady is still upright at the end of it. There is nothing more important than that.

  186. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    is NOT the refs, guys…. not the refs. is just us… we facing championship team… and we are getting out of that spot.

  187. Anonymous Says:

    So are we still comparing this defense to the legendary unit of the late 1990’s – mid 2000’s? This defense is historically good against the run, historically bad against the pass. This team will go as far as the offense can take them. 20th last year…30th this year against the pass. They are what they are, and it’s OK because of the way the game is constructed now. Let’s stop offending that Brooks, Sapp, Lynch, Barber, Rice unit of those glory years with any ridiculous comparison. Go Bucs!!!

  188. 813bucboi Says:

    Great work BL


  189. Spicoli Says:

    Gronk looks like new born giraffe when he runs. gotta love him though!

  190. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Let’s see if we’re still automatic in the Red zone!!! LFG!!!

  191. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    If we can get out of this 1st half 7-7, it would be superb.

  192. 813bucboi Says:

    Now Let’s get 7


  193. Swanee22 Says:

    Not BL. Brady now calling plays.

  194. Swanee22 Says:

    Now it will be play action for TD

  195. Rod Munch Says:

    Aikman doesn’t normally bother me, but he’s terrible today.

  196. unbelievable Says:

    Great drive so far but hate that run on 1st down right there. Defense was set up to block it perfectly.

  197. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Man, we have the GOAT and we’re running gadget plays here?

  198. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    BL … whaaaat. running the ball with our receivers????

  199. Wesley Says:

    Rojo just ain’t the guy.

  200. unbelievable Says:

    Overall good running from RoJo and Bernard this drive tho.

    Cmon baby throw a strike right here!

  201. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    There are some Bucs fans in that stadium baby!

  202. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    First rushing TD and it ain’t even a RB!!!

  203. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah baby! Godwin!

  204. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Godwin nailed Ramsey pretty good there!

  205. Swanee22 Says:

    New wrinkle. No one saw that play coming,,,,

  206. 813bucboi Says:

    Great answer offense

    Who said BL can’t scheme?



  207. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Ramsey can’t stop CG14!!!! Twice now he couldn’t take him down

  208. unbelievable Says:

    Alright defense get us the ball back!

  209. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Now I can breath !

  210. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    That’s was playing chess! All TDs have been passing so give ‘em a receiver run

  211. 813bucboi Says:

    Ok Bowles


    The offense is hot


  212. Coburn Says:

    Good thing is we gave the d a chance to regroup. Any idea on deans injury? Possible he’s good to go again?

  213. Rod Munch Says:

    Awesome response.

    Now we get to get frustrated by the defense just sitting back, getting eaten up by the quick pass plays and running out the clock in the 2nd quarter.

  214. Couch Fan Says:

    Godwin meditating after that TD…. Priceless. LoL

  215. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Alright D tighten your jock straps and get after the Rams O…beat the sh!t out of em and get the ball back!!

  216. Rod Munch Says:

    813bucboi – yeah, 3 runs at the goalline, takes a genius to scheme that up…

  217. 163Doubleplay Says:

    I have afeeling that both Bucs offense and defense are just trying to feel the different schemes the Rams are doing and eventually in tbe 2nd half, they’ll adjust

  218. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The Godwin run is nothing new. Secured the win at GB last year.

  219. Coburn Says:

    Just can’t help but feel we are just responding so far. They got first 1st down and then first long drive. So far just playing copy cat lol

  220. Rod Munch Says:

    The Rams are probably the 2nd best team in the NFL – the Bucs get the #1 spot as returning champs.

    That’s why this is such a tough game.

  221. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I know it’s only week three, but this game has all the feel of a playoff game.

  222. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I know it’s only week three, but this game has all the feel of a playoff game. The intensity is there.

  223. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Where is Suh and Vita???

  224. Wesley Says:

    Refs have gotten really bad at spotting the ball.

  225. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    crappy D

  226. 813bucboi Says:

    Too many penalties


  227. unbelievable Says:

    That is not how you get the ball back!

  228. Rod Munch Says:

    Stupid Shaq trying to jump the snap, he moves and causes the rest of the defense to jump. Shaq has to quit that garbage, even if he does time it right he always draws a flag anyways.

  229. unbelievable Says:

    Good play by Shaq and Vea on that run

  230. 813bucboi Says:


    It was the way the 3 runs were schemed up…

    Stop hating chump


  231. Wesley Says:

    These penalties have to stop or we lose.

  232. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    August, Vita is in there playing well as he always does.

  233. August 1976 Buc Says:

    That does not make up for brainless run up the gut way to much on first downs. Do not make excuses

  234. Dewey Selmon Says:

    With the amount of DB’s we have drafted in the last 7 years it’s hard to fathom being thin lol.

  235. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Need the defense to get some pressure on Stafford, but nobody is holding the ball long against Tampa this year. So many short quick passes. Hard to get to the QB.

  236. Wesley Says:

    Man Rod like a broken record, we get it, the other team is good.

  237. August 1976 Buc Says:

    There were several times they were not there, and the Rams ran the ball well.

  238. Rod Munch Says:

    813bucboi – You got the ball at the 4 yard line, with Brady, Evans, Gronk, Goodwin, Brate, Lenny, Geno, OJ, Miller, Johnson — and it takes you 3 plays to get that 4 yards? I mean, great, we got the TD – I’m happy about that. But using that series as an example that Leftwich is a great coach is pretty dumb. We could have just ran it up the middle and scored in 2 plays. Or just had Brady throw it to Gronk or Evans and scored in 1 play. Again, I don’t care if it takes 1 or 3 plays, but to say that series of events proves he’s elite… uh, no.

  239. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    rams is going to score and get the ball in second half….. don’t see how we can win this game

  240. Wesley Says:

    More trash play from the secondary.

  241. EA Says:

    Soft freaking defense, you know the stat when rams lead at half time ???????

  242. Stanglassman Says:

    Rams RT jumped early. No call.

  243. unbelievable Says:

    @1976 – the only 1st down run I took issue with was the one from inside the 10 on 1st down. Defense was clearly selling out to stop the run pre-snap.

    Meanwhile, DeSean has gotten behind our defense twice already. Just a matter of time…

    The middle and the deep throws are wide open right now on us.

  244. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    offensively they move so fast…..

    Holy sh@t pass broken up!

    HTF do you get that wide open? We’re making Stafford look like Brady.

  252. unbelievable Says:

    Good play by Cockrell.

    Followed by Delaney not even looking lol. He’s a rookie, correct?

  253. Rod Munch Says:

    Rams just going to run the clock out, get the score, then get the ball back to start the 3rd… it’s literally why I said send the house, all out blitz, if they score quickly – whatever, Brady gets the ball back with the chance to score. But maybe the defense makes a play. Either way is better than this garbage, where you allow them to run the clock out and get a score with no chance to respond.

    the Rams offense looks how I thought the Bucs offense would look with all the weapons we have.

    Save us Tom.

  276. Rod Munch Says:

    51 seconds, 2 Timeouts.

    Let’s get a score, they get the ball to start the 3rd.

  277. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    The left tackle fir the Rams moved and they didn’t call it.

  278. Dewey Selmon Says:

    I forgot about the Rams streak. Justin Tucker wont be the only one to break a record today. Brady gonna break hearts. 39-1 after today.

  279. Stanglassman Says:

    Bucs had two chances at turnovers. Dean especially was an easy one.

  280. Jerry Says:

    Well this game is done. Rams have never lost under McVay when leading at half-time.

  281. Dirty Bucs Says:

    You guys bitch more than my nice and all her teenage friends. Stop complaining about literally everything! It’s 1 half of football so far. Shut up.

  282. ArmchairGM Says:

    Is blocking a DB 5 yards past the line allowed now? How about that block in the back on the first Rams TD? Absolutely infuriating.

    Defense will be the death of this team.

    It’s time to call Donnie Abraham and Brian Kelley!

  287. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We need at least 3…..

    Defense looking ugly still

  289. geno711 Says:

    Everyone on this site wants to play press man all the time. Now you see how press man can be exploited too.

    The book on the Bucs is pass on 1st down. 3 games. 3 teams passing all the time on 1st down.

  290. carzyBucs_CL Says:

    this was our D last year, the problem is we are NOT outscoring them with offence either…

    9 too small to play Dline.

    Kupp was a Buc killer last year, and he remains a Buc killer.

  295. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    51 seconds to go 75 yards

  296. J Says:

    But let’s look on the bright side, bucs D are definitely stopping the run. Bowles cashing a soft zone with rookie covering Cupp. Smart thing Bowles.

  297. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Keystone Cops defense on the last TD by the Rams. How is he so wide ass open.

  298. unbelievable Says:


    Yup. Should be illegal contact. The first time on Devin White was even more egregious. Just shows how little the NFL cares about getting th calls correct.

    You can bet your arse if Mike Evans did that they would throw a flag on him.

  299. Rod Munch Says:

    An actual all-time great defense was sunk by corner depth, the 2003 Bucs lost Brian Kelly during that Indy-MNF game and that was it. They had no depth, the backups stunk, teams just picked on that one spot in the defense and while they were still really really good, they were no longer an all-time great defense.

  300. BucfaninMi Says:

    If they go down by 2 TDs. It’ll be over

  301. Bucsfan1988 Says:

    ILLEGAL pic on that TD. Ummm you get 1 yard past LOS..That was at least 2 years….BS officiating at its finest!!!!

  302. Defense Rules Says:

    Delaney looks lost out there, but White & Winfield have looked almost as bad. With no pressure on Stafford he’ll continue to eat us alive. Bucs’ offense better score on every possession for us to even have a remote chance of winning.

  303. jugheadfla Says:

    oh ok, so that was OPI, but the TD wasn’t, seriously?

  304. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    WTF was that BULLS@IT Call?

    F@ck you refs

  310. Rod Munch Says:

    They didn’t call the pick on the TD, and now they call offensive PI on this drive. GO F___K yourself.

    Wow that’s one of the craziest plays I’ve ever seen

  320. Rod Munch Says:

    Wesley – I know, they’re not even a great defense, they’re an above average defense who got on a hot streak in the playoffs. That’s my point, a real elite defense got taken down by one player.

    Ball went backwards wtf

  330. HC Grover Says:

    What a dumb rule.

  331. Richard Dickson Says:

    Doesn’t matter, it wasn’t a forward pass so it’s considered a fumble.

  332. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Remember that all to well Rod. They were never the same going forward.

  333. 813bucboi Says:

    That a BS call on GRONK….


  334. Wesley Says:

    Why even have that rule?

  335. BuccoDav Says:

    That was touched by a defensive player.

  336. unbelievable Says:

  337. Coburn Says:

    Yeah stupid rule. Don’t think that’s the spirit of why it’s in place

    They’re the teams they WANT to host their own Super Bowl.

  354. Stanglassman Says:

    The rule is cause in desperation on four down (raiders holly roller) have purposely fumbled forward instead of getting tackled.

  355. BucfaninMi Says:

    Total BS call! If the ball went forward and your player catches it how is that a fumble

  356. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    They let the Rams run directly
    Into our defender on TD play and then call that horse sh!t on Gronk?!?! He didn’t even initiate contact and just skirted past him! Even Aikman knee is was BS!!!!

  357. Swanee22 Says:

    Shanked it!!! We will adjust in second half offensively and move the ball for scores.. secondary doesn’t have athletes …

  358. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s alright, even if we lose, it’s not a big deal – we lost to the Rams last year and we saw how that turned out.

    Game isn’t over… yet. Maybe the Glazers can VENMO over some cash to the refs to at least even things up.

  359. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Bucfaninmi…how the h@ll does the ball get fumbled forward when it NEVER WENT PAST BRADY AND BERNARD WAS BEHIND BRADY?!?!?!?!

  360. SteveK Says:

    Come out and hit these rams in the mouth on offense. They are small. They will catch the ball make them pay. Let’s also get all over Stafford.

    Offense looks ok, just protect Brady.

  369. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Jerry, I don’t give a sh!t about 39-0…no one ever host and won a SB before last year…we’ve been great in second half for a while…refs don’t screw us in that BS call on Gronk could have been a much different outcome at the end of half.

  370. TiredBucsFan Says:

    Can we please find a CB

  371. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Looking for the Rams to be 39-1 when leading at the half. The game is not over.

    I’m still waiting on this Rams super team, to show up.
    Do they know what time the game starts?

  374. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Amen August 1976!!!

  375. unbelievable Says:

    ^ Yup.

    Refs are doing everything today to give the game to the Rams. It’s so blatant and disgusting I wanna fkn puke.

    Sorry but it’s not even questionable at this point.

    Let’s go Tommy boy, u gotta beat 2 teams today!

  376. Rod Munch Says:

    Bowles needs to stop calling plays like a coward, go all out — if you get beat, it’s OK, we have Brady, we will get some points. The only reason we didn’t get points to end the first half is because stupid Bowles let the Rams run the clock down. Just blitz all out, send the house, every play, yes, they will absolutely burn you and get TD’s, but maybe, just maybe, you’ll actually make a play, get a stop or even a score on defense. Meanwhile just tell Brady, you got to score on every drive, the defense isn’t stopping anything today. Also, on offense, use all 4-downs.

    If the Rams come out, take 9 mins off the clock and get a TD to go up 21-7, then the game is over. If they come out, we send the house, and they take 55 seconds off the clock to go up 21-7, the game is not over.

    There’s only scenario where things are helpless, and that is if you let the Rams eat the clock AND score TDs.

  377. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Come on, screw the refs, the good teams win anyways.
    Time to play your game Bucs, not the Rams game.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  378. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    TB12, does his best work in the 2nd half.

  379. BucfaninMi Says:

    @Naples seems like judgement call, that was awful. Ball from QB hands to receiver never touching the ground is not a fumble. Just an ugly completion.

  380. Medicated Pete Says:

    Tom Brady is the ENTIRE franchise & Licht should be fired for the Kyle pick

  381. Architek Says:

    Has anyone seen or spotted Shaq Barrett???

  382. Jeagan1999 Says:

    This game is still very winnable for the Bucs. Just need to stiffen up the defense a bit, get the pass rush working, and get the ball back in TB12’s hands.

    No panic, just focus!

  383. Dewey Selmon Says:

    I think the offense misses AB. Adjustments are being made in the locker room.

  384. Rod Munch Says:

    People still talking about Sherman… if he’s not faster than Cockwell, then it doesn’t matter. Cockwell’s probably isn’t being in the wrong place or not knowing how to cover guys, it’s that he’s too slow to keep up.

    Speed is everything, and if Sherman isn’t at least a 4.5 guy still, maybe 4.6 on the outside, he’s not going to help unless you’re moving him to safety.

  385. Adrnagy Says:

    Where is edwards

  386. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Not Just Shaq, but the front 7 needs to quit this dissappearing act. The Rams have run the ball pretty well, and no pressure, allowing a gimply inexperienced secondary to be hung out to dry.

  387. Kevin in jax Says:

    If we are going to be penalized start hitting John Lynch style. F the rams go bucs

  388. BuccoBDub Says:

    Really hope this doesn’t get ugly in the 2nd half. Just have a feeling it’s all going to fall apart. Trying to stay positive. We need a 3 & out out to set the tone coming out of the gate.

  389. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Use Gio on 1st & 2nd downs also….his speed, blocking & pass-catching are needed

  390. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

  396. Coburn Says:

    Need all 3 safeties out there. Would like to see a bit more Brate sprinkled in

  397. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs front 7 didn’t do much last year either in the regular season, don’t you guys remember having this exact same conversation for most weeks that wasn’t the Packers game?

    People seem to only remember the playoffs, and not this frustrating defense that would let people nickle and dime it to death – then beat-up on some bad teams (like the Falcons) to pad its stats.

    Bowles needs to send the house, show those exotic blitzes and not wait until the 4th quarter to do so.

  398. JimmyJack Says:

    Too many dang mistakes. We are not beating good teams with this many mistakes. And the mistakes are mostly coming on offense with Gronk responsible for more then 4(but to be fair its a bad call to ask him to play Donald 1v1).

    Time for Bowles to unleash some plays and give our D a chance to make a play. Our passrush after Vea(he saved a TD) is not existent and our secondary doesnt look like they can hold up without one. The redzone D is a major redflag moving forward right now……I understand the Rams are very good but they are fooling us with the same look and we arent even challenging them. Hopefully we have an adjustment ready………….Also for all the flack our CBs will get(im betting) Antoine Winfield is absolutely suck out loud right now. He may as well not be on the field the way he is playing centerfidld today.

    Look for a big play on 1st and 10. If not on playaction our RBs are getting the chanses to make plays.

    All in all we got a lot to work on. Fun game and peaking in December is just fine. We are a ways away.

    Enjoy the 2nd half boys.

  422. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    How bad is your defense when you make Stafford look good?

  423. DBS Says:

    It’s the offense fault. The defense was on the field to long and they were tired.

  424. Leighroy Says:

    Blitz more…..bc it’s been so effective so far??

  425. August 1976 Buc Says:

    No pressure and they are not protecting Brady = losing the line of scrimmage

    Secondary is easy pickings ugly ugly ugly

  426. Medicated Pete Says:

    Everything that Pete feared would happen, has happened

  427. BucfaninMi Says:

    They can’t win this one. 2 opponents.

  428. HC Grover Says:

    Yep Rams looking better so far. Hard to play catchup with no D. If we score they will just return the favor.

  429. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s not over, the quick score means Brady has a chance to answer.

    As long as we don’t give up long drives, we should be OK, but have to make up that possession. But the Bucs have to get a TD, they can not punt here, period. 4 downs.

  430. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Too bad Bowles didn’t get a Job somewhere else. He sucks along with the secondary

  431. Go Bucs! Says:

    Game is NOT over folks

  432. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Yea but we are stopping the run

  433. Dewey Selmon Says:

    How can the defense be tires after the first drive out of half time lol?

  434. JA Says:

    I can’t watch this secondary.
    Luckily I don’t have to because they aren’t playing today.

  435. SBucs Says:

    Recipe for disaster… poor secondary and a gun-slinger QB

  436. Rod Munch Says:

    Leighroy Says:
    September 26th, 2021 at 6:09 pm
    Blitz more…..bc it’s been so effective so far??


    Where exactly have they been blitzing? that play was a 4-man rush. Bowles hasn’t been blitzing hardly at all in this game.

  437. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Secondary sucks!!!

  438. Will Says:

    A Jackson sighting. Smh that was horrible coverage!!!

  439. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Rams playing against. jv team defense 🤣

  440. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady needs to get us a TD, if that happens, we’re OK for the moment.

  441. Wesley Says:

    Wow we suck again.

  442. BerrickDrooks Says:

    love how we all ALL THE FLAGS

  443. jugheadfla Says:

    Donovan Smith doing what he do

  444. BuccoBDub Says:

    Nah, It’s over bro.

  445. 813bucboi Says:



  446. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    They can’t can’t cover a $1 bet. This is what I said what happens when we go up against a real defense. Dink and dunkin barely any run game. 40-0 leading at the half is starting to look like what’s going to happen. Davis didn’t even try

  447. Oxycodoms Says:

    Too many players got paid in the offseason

  448. Rod Munch Says:

    It wasn’t just a 4 man rush, I think Shaq was playing way off the line, so it was basically a 3 man rush, with zero pressure.

  449. PassingThru Says:

    Gotta open up those play calls which were too conservative the first half. And don’t get me started on the false starts.

  450. jugheadfla Says:

    Every BL run play is basically run straight into a pile, how about a stretch or off tackle run every once in awhile.

  451. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    They didn’t call the hit while Evans was on the ground

  452. PassingThru Says:

    They cannot even execute a screen. Fournette falls down on the chip block

  453. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    What the heck did I do?

  454. jugheadfla Says:

    Evans hurt again

  455. Medicated Pete Says:

    Pete told The Glazer Kids that giving the players their rings right before the season began was a HUGE MISTAKE. These guys are sitting in front of the fireplace & smelling their own farts while admiring the shiny diamonds

  456. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Oh boy! not Gronk

  457. HC Grover Says:

    Oh No!

  458. Rod Munch Says:

    He got the wind knocked out of him, he’s fine.

  459. BuccoBDub Says:

    Bye bye Gronk. Fuuuuh.

  460. Rod Munch Says:


  461. Capt.Tim Says:

    Damn it!

  462. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Were is Bernard as good as a receiver and running back he is he’s not in the game. What a joke. This game looks rigged.

  463. PassingThru Says:

    Damn Gronk took a hit to the ribs. Hopefully nothing cracked.

  464. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Champs overcome injury…let’s see what this team is made of.

  465. Go Bucs! Says:

    Nice looking drive here

  466. DaBux Says:


    This would be a good time for our first round draft pick from Alabama to step up his game and not suck.

  467. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Wow Gronk was a defenseless player why no call on that *vicious* hit??? 🤣🤣🤣

  468. PassingThru Says:

    Gio’s made more impact on this game than either Fournette or RoJo.

    But Brady doesn’t pick the personnel…. so there’s that.

  469. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Anybody else notice the hood on JTS on that TD play by Rams??? I saw it love and then it was confirmed on the replay…with a ref literally looking right at JTS and his lineman

  470. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Jackson sucked when he played for the Bucs. He could never get open

  471. Jimbo Says:

    Get Richard Thurman signed asap.

  472. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Really Haywood? Rigged? Wow

  473. HC Grover Says:

    Brady Paydirt!!!

  474. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Without AB we have no cajones

  475. 813bucboi Says:

    We need a stop Bowles


  476. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Coulda been a tied game if not for a blown coverage AND A F*CKING NO CALL BY THE RAMS REFS

  477. HC Grover Says:

    D gotta have a stop here.

  478. Richard Dickson Says:

    Gronk to the locker room.

  479. Leighroy Says:

    Where’s all the smart boys wanted to trade away our TE depth?!

  480. Rod Munch Says:

    That was a good screen call by Leftwich.

    Then Brady calls his own number.

  481. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    If Brate cut inside instead of running into the tackle he would’ve had a td

  482. Buxszntkt Says:

    Rod Muncher ! You see Ryan Jensen with all the downfield blocking ? Yes, you say aberage at best , lol.

  483. August 1976 Buc Says:

    wow, never seen the Brady sneak stopped through all the years I have seen him do it

    GO BUCS!!

  484. 813bucboi Says:

    Great work offense

    need a stop defense


  485. DaBux Says:

    Good drive. It’s time for Bowles to work some magic. JTS and Vea need to curb stomp Stafford.

  486. Wesley Says:

    God I wish we’d let Vaughn run the damn ball.

  487. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Come on Defense… STEP UP !!!!

  488. BuccoBDub Says:

    If we get a stop here we may have a chance but need to tie it up ASAP.

  489. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    DaBux, JTS got held on that TD play…d@mn ref looking right at it and don’t call sh!t!!

  490. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is there any way in the world we can stop them….perhaps Whitehead forcing a fumble….

  491. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    We’re going to be playing from behind the rest of the game and come up just short because of this defense

  492. Coburn Says:

    Agree that Gio Bernard has earned a lot more time

  493. August 1976 Buc Says:

    That is twice now, Jensen way down the field making blocks good stuff

  494. Wesley Says:

    Someone on defense MAKE A F@CKING PLAY!!!!

  495. Bucsfan81 Says:

    So no Gronk, JPP, SMB, Dean and AB and this is a measuring stick for the Rams. If we were fully healthy Rams would be blown out right now.

  496. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    One good thing about the Tams score was it took less than a minute…if they drove it 7-8 minutes and then scored it would have hurt more

  497. Rod Munch Says:

    Told ya, Rams score a quick TD, it’s not over. Brady gets us the TD back, it’s still 7-points with 10 mins left in the 3rd.

    Now bring the f-ing house Bowles. YES, you will get burned, but who cares, Brady will get us more points. But bringing the house maybe you’ll get a stop at some point, then we can make up the possession we’re down.

  498. Will Says:

    Way to finish a drive!

  499. Adrnagy Says:

    Not bad. 14-21 at rams. Acouple injuries. Penalties.

  500. Swanee22 Says:

    Secondary is a major issue. That must be addressed before we play Patriots

  501. Adrnagy Says:

    Come on. .. lets get a sack

  502. Leighroy Says:

    Amen Bucsfan81

  503. DaBux Says:

    “NaplesBucsFan Says:
    September 26th, 2021 at 6:21 pm
    DaBux, JTS got held on that TD play…d@mn ref looking right at it and don’t call sh!t!!”

    He was not held.

    He was tackled.

    In Los Angeles apparently that’s okie-dokey. So JTS is going to have to smoke Stafford to make up for that.

  504. NaplesBucsFan Says:


  505. Rod Munch Says:

    Another 4-man rush, zero pressure.

  506. PassingThru Says:

    I didn’t want to mention it earlier, but to be frank I thought the Rams should have been favored to win this game.

    Silver lining: Bucs are not at full strength, and the team knows the Rams that much better in terms of plays, strengths and tendencies, more so than what LA can learn from TB. I could see these two teams meeting up in the postseason.

  507. jugheadfla Says:

    NO PASS RUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  508. Rod Munch Says:

    3rd down…. another 4-man rush, zero pressure.

  509. 813bucboi Says:

    Defense gotta get off the field


  510. August 1976 Buc Says:

    What are they saving Vita and Suh for??????????

  511. Wesley Says:

    Wide the f@uck open again. We cannot make 3rd down stops, just can’t.

  512. BuccoBDub Says:

    Sooooooooof as Puppy Chow.

  513. Rod Munch Says:

    Bowles is just running the same play over and over again. I get you got backups in, but you’re never going to get a stop running this soft garbage.

  514. DaBux Says:

    Soft as a puppy with the squirts.

  515. PassingThru Says:

    No pressure on third down.

  516. Rod Munch Says:

    2nd and 10… 4 man rush, no pressure.

  517. Wesley Says:

    Pathetic as f@ck!

  518. HC Grover Says:

    Hot knife through butter.

  519. Richard Dickson Says:

    Picked our own guy.

  520. SteveK Says:

    DBs yuccaneers

  521. Wesley Says:

    Bowles back to sucking.

  522. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Sure Joe, Davis is a shutdown corner.

  523. DaBux Says:

    Can anyone make a play? Anyone?

  524. BuccoBDub Says:

    Our def is broken.

  525. Rod Munch Says:

    3rd and 5… 4 man rush, no pressure, gives up huge play.


    At least give the team a chance

  526. Huh Says:

    This team isn’t winning a wild card game.

  527. August 1976 Buc Says:


  528. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Funny how desean Jackson was always hurt when he played for us. Not today though.

  529. SteveK Says:

    Is our secondary that freaking bad? Let’s go Bucs! Shoot

  530. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Where is our D?

  531. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    24 stinks

  532. Rod Munch Says:

    1st and goal…

    4-man rush, no pressure, TD

  533. Swanee22 Says:

    Now it maybe over. They will probably put up 45.

  534. Boltsfan17 Says:

    All this talk about how good Davis is. What nonsense. None of the back 4/5 can cover anything. This game is going exactly how I thought. Bucs can score but can’t cover for this trash defense enough.

  535. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    3rd downs are killing us….we are just about toast if we can’t get off the field.

  536. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Bucs defense is hopeless !

  537. EA Says:

    what happened to the ferocious pass rush, anybody can complete a pass with that much time.

  538. Leighroy Says:

    No pressure, no coverage. Is Mike Smith coordinating again?!

  539. Richard Dickson Says:

    Oh just give them the score, they’re gonna get it anyway.

  540. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    WOW…WOW…WOW…WOW…can’t stop SH!T!!!!

  541. SKBucsFan Says:

    Time to call Richard Sherman

  542. Mike Says:

    Bowles is overrated and inconsistent!

  543. BuccoBDub Says:

    Bunch of sissy nannies

  544. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Yup Cooper Cupp doing his thing. Carlton David so stupid

  545. Coburn Says:

    Shaq Barrett pretty invisible since his payday

  546. Rotten Amiigo Says:

    That fact we’ve waited this long and still no move to help out our secondary is pathetic…

  547. Rod Munch Says:

    Bowles is just running the same crap over and over again, zero adjustments.

    I get that you have backups in, but how the hell do you expect for anything to change when you’re doing nothing on defense.


  548. Show Me the TDs Says:

    We have zero pass rush.

  549. Bucsfan81 Says:

    We should have a top 10 draft pick next year. Draft the best CB Jason.

  550. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Offense has to score fast now and then hope beyond hope that the Rams make a mistake…cuz the D ain’t forcing nothing!

  551. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Rams have scored on 3 straight drives within a 8 min span

  552. BuccoDav Says:

    I think our defensive line is over rated…

  553. BuccoBDub Says:

    Open tryouts this week

  554. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    2 minute offense the rest of the game

  555. Rod Munch Says:

    OK Brady, go get us another TD and lets keep it at 7.

    Then Arians needs to go over and punch Bowles in the mouth.

  556. rodmunch74 Says:

    I say trade whatever you have to to get Stephon Gilmore. The secondary is a joke.

  557. PassingThru Says:

    Either they trade for a CB using a high draft pick, or sign Sherman who honestly I am not sure can make a difference. The Sherman I saw on the 49ers didn’t have the quicks and cannot provide cover man defense.

  558. 163Doubleplay Says:

    No wonder no other teams wants to interview Tod Bowlse for Head Coach position. They know his defensive schemes sucks!

  559. SteveK Says:

    Defense needs someone to win their matchup, step up and make a play in the worst way. Go Bucs! Keep it rolling O!

  560. SBucs Says:

    At least this is not a playoff game.

  561. Kdog Says:

    Where the hell is barret got paid all that money but he’s not even trying out there man this ish is crazy

  562. DaBux Says:

    Sign Sherman. The U hasn’t produced a good DB in years and if Delany is the answer, then the question is “is the over/under on passing TDs allowed per game still 5?”

  563. Jay adams Says:

    Yes leighroy we can’t rush and we can’t cover bush with a blanket if a cold front were coming. T. Bowles seems to not want to blitz

  564. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I can hear Dandy Don Meredith singing, “Turn Out the Lights, the Party’s Over.”

  565. HC Grover Says:

    Tron is no JPP.

  566. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Why jut let Stafford throw the ball, either get a pass rush, or get embarrassed. Bring the house + kitchen sink why just go down without a fight. Come on T Bowels

  567. Rotten Amiigo Says:

    Mac Jones is going to look like Joe Montana next weekend

  568. 813bucboi Says:

    At this point we just have to keep up with them….

    Leaders on the defense need to step up….

    I mentioned earlier the defense was missing JPP JUICE….SHAQ gotta step up


  569. RayRay Says:

    Gravediggers digging their own grave

  570. Will Says:

    Defense is just not good at this point and time.

  571. BucThis Says:

    Lol y’all thought we had a defense?

  572. Rod Munch Says:

    rodmunch74 Says:
    September 26th, 2021 at 6:31 pm
    I say trade whatever you have to to get Stephon Gilmore.


    hey look, my fanclub showed up.

  573. Mr Bean Says:

    Game is still easily within reach. Plenty of time and two score lead.

  574. DBS Says:

    No pressure on any Quarterback this year. What a joke.

  575. Say what? Says:

    Might as well sellout with the blitz at this point. Leaving our DBs on an island couldn’t make them look any worse than they already do. At least if you blitz Devin he can be useful and not running around in no man’s land doing nothing.

  576. DaBux Says:

    JTS apparently isn’t quite ready. Give Nelson more time to see if he can get inside and pressure Stafford.

  577. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Boktsfan17…Bucs have only 14 in 21/2 quarters…so our O isn’t showing up either

  578. Tackleblockwin Says:

    3rd down, no pass rush
    3rd down, no pass rush
    3rd down, no pass rush

  579. Winny Testaverde Says:

    I knew DeSean Jackson would be targeted but this is nuts. He’s so happy like McVay…biggest front runners in the league. Looks like the Bucs will need to earn a rematch barring a miracle comeback today.

  580. Robertg Says:

    We all knew this would probably be a loss. We need help in the secondary

  581. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Rams already abandoned their running game and just BOMBS AWAY play.

  582. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Ok OJ earn a contract

  583. Stanglassman Says:

    Anyone who didn’t pick Cupp on the JBF poll was wrong.

  584. Rod Munch Says:

    Bowles is so scared of allowing big plays he refuses to do anything on defense that might lead to the Bucs defense making a play. Last week against the Falcons he ran this garbage 4-man rush all day until the 4th quarter, after the Bucs were up by 2 scores, then finally he unleashed the blitz and we got 2 quick TDs.

    I guess that’s what he’s waiting for again.

  585. Coburn Says:

    Grover jpp isn’t the old jpp anymore. Sadly Tryon is only one other tham Vea who has applied some pressure

  586. Wesley Says:

    Got lucky as f@ck to win a super bowl last year.

  587. Dan Says:

    This is just like the Bucs defense of the “lost decade.” No pressure on the QB and a secondary that can’t stop anyone.

    There is MASSIVE regression taking place here.

  588. DaBux Says:

    Brady running = me poop my pants

  589. Miller5252 Says:

    It wouldn’t be so bad if it was just the secondary getting blown up. The whole D looks like the Bucs of old. No pass rush from d ends, linebackers look lost and Devin White is getting blown up by running backs and then the secondary which everyone else has said enough about them. Sherman is not going to help fix this D. They’ve got a lot of work to do if they plan to compete against the best in the NFC.

  590. HC Grover Says:

    They got the lead and are coming hard.

  591. PassingThru Says:

    Young is way too big for Gio, no IOL touched him.

  592. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Oh boy, Giselle will mot be happy doing Toms laundry tonight

  593. unbelievable Says:

    Rams are allowed to hold, commit offensive PI, run pick plays and get zero penalties.

    Meanwhile a ball falling backwards and caught by our RB is deemed a forward fumble.

    Absolute horsechit.

    Throw some injuries on top= losing formula.

    No way to win if defense can’t get off the field

  594. Rod Munch Says:

    4 down territory. Can’t even considering punting the rest of this game.

  595. Tony1775 Says:

    Just put in backups…

  596. Capt.Tim Says:

    Damn it
    Ready for this one to be over

  597. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Not ready for prime time yet….

  598. Rod Munch Says:

    Morris is actually mixing up his playcalls, not just sitting in the same exact defense every single play.

  599. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Play calling is brutal on both sides of the ball

  600. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    They are giving up!! I don’t have any confidence in coming back

  601. BuccoBDub Says:

    So are our players. They’re already on the plane mentally.

  602. Richard Dickson Says:

    We just gave up.

  603. 813bucboi Says:

    C’mon defense


  604. jugheadfla Says:

    welp, see you all next week

  605. PassingThru Says:

    Yuck… special teams is special for all the wrong reasons.

  606. Rod Munch Says:

    Great, now cowardly Leftwich shows his stupid face.

  607. Daddylonglegs Says:

    Not a good football team right now!!

  608. BuccoDav Says:


  609. Tony1775 Says:

    The the heck….needed this game for a wake up call…

  610. DBS Says:

    That is it!

  611. SteveK Says:


    Let’s go D. Pick us up and stop

    gravediggers need to not dog their own and start helping the cause.

  612. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Might as well have gone for it on 4th…well move on to NE…no hope for this game

  613. HC Grover Says:

    35 14 will pretty much sew it up for the Rams. This was ugly.

  614. DaBux Says:

    Welp, this is not going to end well.

  615. Rod Munch Says:

    Gee, you can’t punt, period — we do punt, get a shank.

    F-ing cowardly coaching.

  616. EA Says:

    Nothing is going right WTF, this is a coaching disaster

  617. Capt.Tim Says:

    League is helping LA in this game.
    Just want to get out, without anyone getting hurt

  618. Leighroy Says:

    Better a wake up call in week 3 while it’s still early in the year!

  619. J Says:

    Maybe the coaching staff needs to get their heads out of the ass and stop reading the own accolades.p

  620. Medicated Pete Says:

    Trade Scott Miller

  621. August 1976 Buc Says:

    The Rams are whooping the O lines azz, and the D line is getting stuffed too. That is what the issue is, everything starts with the line of scrimmage, and they look like crap

  622. DaBux Says:

    Gravediggers might want to rethink their nickname.

    Toaster Ovens might work better.

  623. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    After tonight I hope the dweebs who were pounding their chests about how unstoppable we are and blah blah blah will keep that mess too themselves. You all who talked crap about Raheem Morris you need to bite your tongues

  624. PassingThru Says:

    I wonder if Trask can play CB.

  625. 163Doubleplay Says:

    If it wasnt for Brady, BL is just another OC ready to be fired

  626. BerrickDrooks Says:

    freaking wave the white flag cuz the defense already gave up and the coaching is calling jack sheit

  627. unbelievable Says:

    Rams can just point their hands and refs will throw a flag right now.

    Jesus what the fk is Pinion doing?

    Someone let me know when the Bucs decide they want to play some football.

    This is just pathetic.

  628. Anonymous Says:

    wow. Bucs have lost their shxt.

  629. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    I don’t see how this is a wake up call…we have looked like sh!t on D each week, the only difference was that we played sucky defenses and could score almost at will. Now we play a decent D and can’t do SH!T!!! 14 points, ONLY 14 points!

  630. SteveK Says:

    Pass rush needs to get home just once. DBs need to make a play and quit getting their asses kicked. Get me a turnover.

  631. unbelievable Says:

    @DaBux – to be fair, more than half the grave diggers are in the sideline.

  632. Huh Says:

    And that’s game over.
    Just call it now.

  633. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Hard to believe but Cockrel is having a pretty good game

  634. rodmunch74 Says:

    Seems like they are more concerned about winning next week

  635. Kevin in jax Says:

    Someone needs to go to commissioner about this game. Screw this crooked stadium

  636. Rod Munch Says:

    Alright now the game is over. Bowles is too much of a chickensh– coward to make any adjustments, or too stupid. Leftwich is panicking. Arians for all his risk-it talk, is punting on 4th an inch in the 1st when he knows the defense will not stop them.

    Just a garbage game. Outcoached bigly.

    Next week Bill is going to waiting for that Bowles creampuff defense to come in, and they also have a very good defense. Next week will not be easy. Bucs should win, but it won’t be a cakewalk.

  637. Richard Dickson Says:

    It ain’t easy to win 10 in a row I guess.

  638. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    If Rams score take the starters out

  639. T REX Says:

    chumpa bay

  640. Rotten Amiigo Says:

    You know what I’ll accept this loss. But I want a rematch in the playoffs at Sofi stadium.

  641. Say what? Says:

    Richard Sherman, won’t do anything to help this secondary. Don’t kid yourselves.

  642. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Cannot blame the refs for the Rams being more physical. The Bucs are getting destroyed on both sides of the line of scrimmage

  643. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Take the starters out. This game is done.

  645. 163Doubleplay Says:

    I hope this game will be THE WAKE CALL game for the Bucs.

  646. Will Says:

    Maybe this is that a$$ beating we need like the KC game last year. This team has been reading their press clippings and are having a dose of reality shoved down their throats.

  647. HC Grover Says:

    The Gravediggers have dug us a nice hole for the 4th Qtr.

  648. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Insult to injury……Matt Gay makes the FG

  649. 813bucboi Says:

    Gotta go 2min BL….


  650. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    If this D could do anything I’d be some what optimistic but I just can’t see it…prove me wrong Bucs!

  651. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Down 3 scores….I think we can abandon the up the gut…Byron

  652. rodmunch74 Says:

    As Steve Smith said, “We’re getting a good ole fashion a?s whooping!”.

  653. Armybucfan Says:

    Never been so disappointed in our defense. We haven’t touched stafford and he has all day to throw. And Brady. Any do it all damnit.

  654. 163Doubleplay Says:

    why is brady wearing a rain boots? 🤣

  655. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Of Course, Gay is money… now

  656. Mr Bean Says:

    Game not done! Plenty of time left!

  657. T REX Says:

    embarrassing…they look like they quit

  658. Brian P Says:

    No QB pressure and receivers wide open. Mike Smith defense is back.

    There is no way we repeat the Super Bowl. No way. That defense is just plain bad, bad, bad! You can’t win a Super Bowl with a defense like this.

    Just be glad we got the title last year.

  659. Medicated Pete Says:

    Arians deciding to leave Tampa 18hrs before kickoff was a COLOSSAL MISTAKE. I told ya’ll to PANIC

  660. T REX Says:


    Miller is trash

  661. Swanee22 Says:

    No Will, it’s our secondary. Sherman will be signed Monday… Can’t do any worse.

  662. BuccoDav Says:

    Nobody has quit.

  663. TommyLikeWingy Says:

    The secondary was only as good as the pass rush allowed in the postseason. Not replenishing the defensive backfield was a monumental misfire. Gump has returned.

  664. T REX Says:

    Bench miller please…leave Johnson in

  665. Mr Bean Says:

    Yjis is getting interesting!

  666. 813bucboi Says:

    Still a game

    Need a stop


  667. unbelievable Says:

    Brady should have locked into Gronk on the 2nd down he was doubled.

    How do we have the most talented receiving core yet no one can get open?

  668. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Since we can’t stop them….I don’t understand the FG….I know it makes it a 2 score game….But….WTF

  669. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Come on, where is our unstoppable offense!!! We were 100% TD rate in the red zone…WTF?? LFG!!! Still don’t see a come back…prove me wrong Bucs!

  670. unbelievable Says:

    *should not have

    Defense HAS to get a stop here.

  671. HC Grover Says:

    Turnover please.

  672. SBucs Says:

    Captain obvious here…defense needs a turnover maybe two

  673. Medicated Pete Says:

    Scott Miller had his 15min of fame. So long

  674. Richard Dickson Says:

    I gotta say, I’m encouraged by Evans getting mad after that drive. At least someone isn’t taking this lying down.

  675. unbelievable Says:

    Defense has given up.

    Devin White not even trying.

  676. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Suh and Vita???

  677. 813bucboi Says:

    Need a stop stop right here right now


  678. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    17 pts in 3 quarters!!! Better score 17 in the 4th

  679. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Defense looks gassed and without any heart

  680. Richard Dickson Says:

    Not that I’d ever be okay with losing, but what makes this worse is that it leaves the damn Panthers alone in first place.

  681. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    #9 is a waste of a 1st round pick

  682. Armybucfan Says:

    We need a pick 6 and a 3 and out if we are to have a hole in hell. But we are not making the plays. If they want to run the ball punch the fuq’n ball out of the runner. Let’s get that ball back if we can’t get to their QB.

  683. Will Says:

    Not liking Vita not on the field on 1st down

  684. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Why play with a different D line? Vita and Suh have been out for more plays than usual. Why, they dominate the line of scrimmage, and that is the root problem for the D line today, they are not dominating like they usually do.

  685. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 From Outer Space

  686. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    813…based on the first 3qrts it’s hard to see it as a game…Bucs gotta prove me wrong. LFG

  687. EA Says:

    It feels like that sunday night game against the saints last year

  688. Izod Says:

    The play-calling has been too predictable. Rams are too talented on defense for this vanilla stuff.

  689. T REX Says:

    total garbage trash defense

  690. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Only an interception can redeem this defense

  691. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Ass kickings ain’t fun when it’s your ass getting kicked.

  692. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Why does Delaney keep covering Cupp? Van we not get him some help?

  693. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Where is Vita and Suh, are they just plain tired, can not be, they have not played that much….

  694. unbelievable Says:

    Play softer Devin White, I bet you can’t.

  695. T REX Says:

    miss JPP…d line is TRASH today

  696. August 1976 Buc Says:

    This looks like the first KC game last year, just embarrassing defense

  697. Will Says:

    Get the true starters in on the Dline

  698. Wesley Says:

    It’s a looong season but we gotta find some secondary help.

  699. jay adams Says:

    We had a chance at a pic earlier in the game and we dropped it

  700. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Back up D line today, cannot stop the Run

  701. Bucamania Says:

    2 team sacks in 3 weeks

  702. HC Grover Says:

    What has Barrett been doing today?

  703. Izod Says:

    D-line blows and we are too scared to blitz because we also can’t cover anybody.

  704. Huh Says:

    Rams are just better. Plain and simple.

  705. Haywood Jablowme Says:

    Where are the penalties on the Rams

  706. Wesley Says:


  707. Coburn Says:

    At this point would just be nice to get a single sack before the game is over…

  708. HC Grover Says:

    Textbook tackle at the sideline.

  709. unbelievable Says:

    Oh well.

  710. Huh Says:

    I forgot Barrett was even playing.

  713. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Lazy defense kisses a pick 6

    Those saying we are missing jpp. He was just as much part of the problem the last two weeks.

    We running outta time


  716. HC Grover Says:

    If we had scored 45 it would be OK.

  717. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Play after play of the back up D line. Just plain nuts

  718. Armybucfan Says:


  719. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We cannot do a GD thing on defense. Offense ain’t so great either, but Rams are very talented on the defensive side.

  720. Anonymous Says:

    I was optimistic until this drive by the Rams.

  721. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Mac Jones will light up this defense next week. We know what rookie QB do to Tampa defenses.

  722. HC Grover Says:

    Carolina lead Division we now tied with the Ain’ts

  723. Will Says:

    I’m confused as to why Suh and Vita aren’t out there

  724. Jerry Says:

    Haven’t seen the defense this bad since the Mike Smith days.

    The regression is quite astounding.

  725. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Suh and Vita only coming in on 3rd downs Why, just keep getting beat with back up D line and gimpy secondary

  726. unbelievable Says:

    Bowles got schooled today.

  727. T REX Says:

    What an arse kicking…

    Rams owned us on offense and defense.

    We didn’t even show up.


  728. Elita Vita Says:

    Mr. Bowles, Paging Mr. Bowles….Mr Bowles your wanted in Los Angeles…..Please show up!

  729. Bucman247 Says:

    The look on Tom face look like we go lose. Tom been playing long enough to know.

    The Fat Lady has been singing so much she is hoarse.

  731. RuKa44 Says:

    There are a few young players that allowed the Super Bowl win and all the praise that came with it rise to their heads.
    Devin White and Winfield Jr are a sad shadow of last year’s players

  732. Bucamania Says:

    This defense needed a wake up call and they got it.

    Zero pressure or intensity.

  733. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Oh well…hopefully somebody can take
    Down the Rams to get us a chance at the bye week. Most teams don’t have the defense to slow down our O, but the Rams do

  734. bucfanforever Says:

    the Buc’s defense is softer than Charmin.

    The Rams are hitting our WR when they are headed out of bounds, the Bucs are pushing the rams WR out of bounds.

    At least we are down four starters and the Rams with be overconfident in the Playoffs, which means they will lose.

  735. Coburn Says:

    Unfortunately I think bowles just does not have the horses

  736. Izod Says:

    only thing keeping this from being a bigger blowout is McVay’s conservatism. They could’ve converted all their 4th downs, Bucs can’t stop schit.

  737. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Held us to 24 last year too

  738. Bucamania Says:

    Agree on Devin and Antoine. Playing terrible football.

  739. Bucsfan1988 Says:

    This CRAP-SHOW officiating has called 1 penalty for 4 yards on the Rams..

    You figure it out…

    Anyone who tells me this game wasn’t fuk’n rigged is a pure moron…

  740. SB~LV Says:

    All of the above!

  741. HC Grover Says:

    After this series Bucs will call it a day and put in the subs.

  742. Izod Says:

    Bowles is overrated, just not nearly as much as Leftwich.

  743. Coburn Says:

    Agree that guys like white and Winfield seem complacent

  744. Bucman247 Says:

    @Ruka44 they all look like shadows except Tom. Look at wirfs he been getting his behind kicked

  745. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is Shaq playing in this game?

  746. August 1976 Buc Says:

    The Bucs are playing “the Fat Lady sings” on the D line, let alone a bunch of back ups in the seconadary.

    Hope the coaches wake up, and get help. This is just plain embarrassing

  747. SBucs Says:

    You knew early in the defense wasn’t playing well when they gave up over ninety five yards for a touchdown. Is there time for Todd Bowles to fix it? It certainly hasn’t played consistently all year. Where’s the rush pressure, where are the turnovers?

  748. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    I don’t think this is a wake up call…I think it’s an eye opener for the rest of the league that our D has s vulnerable to the pass…no need to run

  749. HeavyE Says:

    Have we ever won in these uniforms? Can we stop playing in these as Well, they look like S-it and we are playing like S-it!!!!!!

  750. Izod Says:

    Actually I think some calls went the Bucs way… no need to rig a game where the other team is in complete control.

  751. Coburn Says:

    Wasn’t that a horse collar just now?

  752. Since76 Says:

    The bucs got a good old fashion @$$ whoopin today. In every phase of the game. Better coaching most of all. Hopefully arians and crew can game plan alot better next week.

    For shame, for shame! As Duffy duck would say…..It’s Despicable!

    Rams can do whatever they want and the refs don’t call SH!T

  757. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Grabbing Gronks arm is no penalty but Gronk doing a natural pick is offensive PI

    How many horse collar tackles have they got away with?

  764. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Stop the BS about the refs. We got our collective AS@ES beaten up today. Let Tom do some Avocado Tequila shots and put Fuc$ing Trask in.

  765. Jerry Says:

    Thing is, it’s not just one game. This is now the 3rd game in a row the DL can’t get pressure and the secondary got roasted. And it’s getting worse, not better.

    There is a very serious problem that needs to be fixed or you can forget defending the title. And no, Richard Sherman isn’t the solution. There is a MUCH deeper problem with that unit. Replacing one CB won’t make a difference.

    This isn’t a “wake up call.” This game is proof that the Bucs defense is seriously exposed. Every team in the league knows how to beat us.

  766. Bucman247 Says:

    Man man man . They needed this but whooping . After this they will get right. They did this last year with the saints.

  767. Bucsfan81 Says:

    Time to bench starters. Better luck next week. Probably won’t win the division but maybe a wild card like last year. Still a lot of football left to be played.

  768. Izod Says:

    pack it up and save Brady for another day… I prefer to just lose the game not Brady and the season as well.

    We got blown out a lot worse than this last year at home by the Saints, I’m not worried.

  769. Capt.Tim Says:

    Get Gronk out of the Game!

  770. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Oh well…. there goes the Bucs 17-0 season 😫

  771. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Just an old fashioned a$$ whippin’

  772. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Now the offense is throwing in the towel…don’t blame em…total team loss today! Whole team looks like sh!t! Only good thing is we don’t see another good team for awhile! Oh well, maybe the offense gets a wake up call today, but the D ain’t gonna get any better, not right away. Teams don’t need to run UNTIL they stop the pass. Why would you run when the Bucs can’t stop your pass game????

  773. Say what? Says:

    Jamel dean’s dropped interception was a bad omen for this game. The dude has some serious stone hands on top if being one of those DBs who can’t actually cover receivers.

  774. HC Grover Says:

    Jinx Uniforms!

  775. Coburn Says:

    Well I know a huge deal was made about retaining all the Superbowl players. Think is you either get better or you get worse. The hope was the older players wouldn’t decline and younger ones would improve. Early in season but we will see. I think some did wonder why we didn’t try to improve some places like secondary. Some of the old dline possibly should have been let go and replaced

  776. Soggy Says:

    Not our day buc fans started with the early drop of a should have been a pick.. UGLY DUCK BUC DAY……………………………………..

  777. LA Bucs Fan Says:

    Tell Todd Bowled this isn’t a scrimmage game

  778. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Can not blame the refs for the Bucs getting physically beat, straight up beat down. The Rams have been the more physical team today. The Bucs have had their azz whooped on the D line and the O line

    Refs make stupid calls every game. Cannot blame them for this azz whoopin
    Either man up or get embarrassed

  779. DaBux Says:

    Suh = invisible
    Vea = semi-invisible
    $haq Barrett = invisible
    Gravediggers = Toaster Ovens
    Brady = Beaten up
    Gronk = playing hurt (not good)
    Scotty Miller = Mich Ultra super light beer
    Play calling (Def & Off) = Creative as using Play-Doh with a blindfold

    Time to reset and forget this game. Don’t just burn the tape, blow it up on the practice field.

  780. Coburn Says:

    There was also hope it another year being together would help, but def seems it’s gone to some players heads

  781. Izod Says:

    If you genuinely thought the Bucs could go 17-0 with such a mediocre defense, then man I’m gonna feel bad telling you that Santa doesn’t exist.

  782. King C Says:

    LA just better. Hard to win consistently in this league when you can’t run the ball. Bucs look worse running this year than last

  783. HC Grover Says:

    Ol Number 9 is not too swift.

  784. Medicated Pete Says:

    Kyle Trask at the helm next season is gonna be awesome

  785. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Don’t even celebrate…good judgement Gholston

    Troy Aikman just called it, Rams outcoached the bucs big time.

  787. Kalind Says:

    What an a$$kicking…

  788. SBucs Says:

    Bruce had no answers for what the cowboys and falcons did and the defense has been exposed. Run and throw at will.

  789. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Finally….we get our 1 sack

  790. 163Doubleplay Says:

    Time to pack it up bucs. Just leave the defense and todd bowles in LA.

  791. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Vita and Suh on Vacation today, sideline picnic or something

  792. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    King C can’t judge the run game much when we don’t run it

  793. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Pass rush was non-existent today. The whole defense looked lost or tired or something today.

    Oh well, live to fight another day…one isn’t going to break the whole season.

  794. Coburn Says:

    Yeah Brady has already taken too many hits

  795. Will Says:

    Need to see this defense step up their game

  796. Capt.Tim Says:

    Jeez, alot of you guys are haters!
    Its one game.
    Our secondary is banged up.
    The refs are on a league agenda.

    Its nothing.
    Get home, sign a couple CBs- back on track

  797. Coburn Says:

    Lined up offsides I think. Looked pretty obvious

  798. RuKa44 Says:

    The officiating was really poor and mostly in favor of the Rams (completely diferente calls on similar plays, seems like Rams players can be as aggressive as they want with no consequences) but when you play this badly on defense against a top tier team there are no excuses.
    I get that we are thin in the secondary… but… Mr Bowles, they still are hanging 30+ on us… why not going down swinging? Worst case scenario the result is the same, a L….

  799. fudbucly Says:

    Now that we’ve got the undefeated season talk out of the way, let’s go win the bowl!!

    Our Special Teams are trying to give BA an aneurism.

  802. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Line up offsides, yeah thats the kind of day it is today

  803. SBucs Says:

    Maybe this game is rope a dope. Lull the rams into thinking they’re better then when they play in the play offs they’ll turn it on…

  804. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    0 pass TDs for our #1 scoring offense…man that is absolutely embarrassing

  805. August 1976 Buc Says:

    And why is Brady in there with 4 minutes left?

  806. Capt.Tim Says:


  807. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    We needed this a$$ whooping.

    I expect Licht to make a move or two in the coming weeks.

  808. Looking at YOU! Says:

    Let’s see, the offensive line can’t stop a child. The defensive line can’t past a sleeping security guard.
    What in the hell happened to the Buccaneers?
    SAD! And Embarrassing

  809. Richard Dickson Says:

    Why not get Trask some game time at this point?

  810. JimmyJack Says:

    Well this was a thorough beatdown. We lose on both lines of scrimmage. Winfield is my dog of the week. And Devin White is just a warm body out there. Pretty much anything this defense was good at last year we have gotten worse at. Redzone defense being my top concern.

    Offense making too many mistakes at this point to play with a contender. We better fix our protection too if we wanna make another run.

    Plenty of time to get it right but we got a long way to go.

  811. HC Grover Says:

    Compleat while laying on his back.

  812. Elita Vita Says:

    Yes, exactly what I thought, lulling the Rams into complacency and then, when they least expect it, with 2 minutes to go in the game POW! a comeback of epic proportions……. The Rams fall for it every time!!!

  813. JimmyJack Says:

    LUVfor a passrusher? My god are we soft at getting to the QB. JPP wasnt making any difference either.

  814. Jerry Says:

    It’s not just one game. The defense has looked like absolute trash the past 3 weeks and it’s not getting better. It looks literally like it did in the Mike Smith days.

  815. HC Grover Says:

    Get Brady out of there this is a dead horse! Put in all subs.

  816. 163Doubleplay Says:

    take brady out. dint gamble the whole season for 1 game

  817. Elita Vita Says:

    Gonna be a long trip home!

  818. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    I know you don’t like to quit but all I see is a losing effort with a lot of hits on our starters…maybe it’s just me

  819. DaBux Says:

    Watching Brady run just brings shivers of Blaine to my spine.

  820. JimmyJack Says:

    After todays game Brady on pace for 16 TD……..stupidest thing i never heard.

  821. 813bucboi Says:

    Penalties killed us today


  822. Coburn Says:

    Yeah please stop whining about refs. We got our butts whupped. This defense sucks so far u til they can prove otherwise. So far looking like we may be just another SB champ with a hangover season

  823. HC Grover Says:

    Why Brady in there?

  824. Richard Dickson Says:

    The offense moved the ball, they just couldn’t score.

  825. WorstFans Says:

    We lost to them last year and still won the Super Bowl so not a huge issue.

  826. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:


  827. LUVMYBUCS Says:


    Yeah – Passrusher & CB.

    We have tons of premier picks available or the next 3 yrs.
    Time to go “ALL IN” like the rams.

  828. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Why let Brady stay on the field, drag him off

  829. SBucs Says:

    Disappointing but not unexpected. Sophomore season for several players and complacency in other players. Not a good game.

  830. 163Doubleplay Says:

    padding stats time .. lol 😆

  831. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Get back to basics and re-establish a running game.

  832. Swanee22 Says:

    No reason Brady should be in the game… coaches not sharpest tool in the box

  833. JimmyJack Says:

    To be a little fair to Bowles he actually chaged the entire game with the most perfect call of the game and Winfield looked like a below average saftety and never really had a chance to make the play.

  834. BerrickDrooks Says:

    When Arians retires I have NO faith in Todd Bowles.

  835. Coburn Says:

    I think they’re giving Stafford a little too much credit. He may very well end up having a stellar season, but acting like this defense is the ultimate prove it game for him? Lmao
