Another Energy Crisis

December 19th, 2021

In the biggest game of the year, on the biggest stage, against their biggest rival, the Bucs offense came out and dropped a deuce.

Forgive Joe, that’s a mistake. They dropped a zero.

Bucs legend Father Dungy even commented at halftime that the slimy Saints were playing with more energy and more emotion.

Joe has one question: Why?

They defense was fantastic, but the Taysom Hill quarterback sneak for six yards late in the first half was nothing short of a group loaf by the Bucs defense as they had New Orleans pushed back at their 1 yard line.

Bucco Bruce Arians blasted his Bucs for bad energy (aka effort) after the ugly loss to the Washingon Heinickes in November. Arians vowed to stop it. He did, but now it’s back.

That’s not Tom Brady. That’s not championship December football. That’s not the Bucs we know and love over the previous 21 games.

Perhaps most disturbing was the Bucs’ offensive line getting punched in the mouth far more than usual.

Joe will need an extra Big Storm beer to fall asleep tonight.

    This game exposed Byron Leftwich. He has completely relied on Brady making incredible throws to elite receivers. He has zero creativity and no clue of how to call a game. Awful game plan, no adjustments. He abandoned the run because his idea of a run game is calling HB dive on first down out of heavy formation with the defense stacking the box, which has NEVER worked. He needs to be put in the cannon and blasted to Jacksonville yesterday. Asinine play calling.

    All bucs fans are hating Byron Leftwich and his putrid offense calling poopy unimaginative gameplan tonight

    YOU SUCK BYRON LEFTSUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    If it wasn’t for the AMAZING TODD BOWLES and the defense keeping the Bucs alive…………it would’ve looked even worse.

    BUT SHAME ON YOU Byron Leftwich that you couldn’t muster up points against the lowly saints………..and that’s why you’re not a HC.

  4. DrunkagainInYbor Says:

    I was shocked how the o line played. They all looked like they were sleepwalking. This loss is seriously embarrassing. My whole family is Saints fans. My culture comes from Lousyanna. I’m Creole but grew up in Brandon. Now I gotta hear who dat echoing incessantly.

  5. BucsFan81 Says:

    Someone needs fired after this embarrassment. I hope the media gives this team hell and they finally wake the hell up.

  6. ElioT Says:

    Bryon is horrible.

    If you can see that, you’re a moron.

  7. ElioT Says:


  8. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The saints were playing Without their — head coach, two starting tackles……and against a backup QB…………they couldn’t even put up any points???????

    CMON MAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. unbelievable Says:

    Terrible playcalling.

    Even worse execution.

    Injuries have reached critical mass.

    Stick the fork in em.

  10. Izod Says:

    The offense was completely out-smarted and out-hearted. Gronk was clueless out there, yet Brady tried to force most of his passes to him. Bucs passed exclusively in the first half, and the Saints knew every play call before it happened (as usual against us). OL got whipped up, particularly Cappa. Darden should not be playing professional sports of any kind.

  11. unbelievable Says:

    Lol anthem you pathetic fake fan u only show up after a loss.

  12. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    PLAYOFF TEAMS don’t lose like this in December lay goose eggs to lowly teams…………………sorry…….this team will not win a Superbowl

    THAT WAS PURE CRAP we saw tonight…………..JUST GARBAGE

  13. Leighroy Says:

    I thought the deep ball calls on 3rd and 2 were brilliant – no Buc fan ever.

  14. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team destroyed their seeding tonight. I wanna avoid the rams. I think it’s a bad matchup for the bucs.

  15. Bird Says:

    Anthem is talking about himself. He is trash

    Dude is a coward. He only posts after a loss

  16. Francisco Guzman Says:

    TheBucsAnthem it’s clearly mental at this point. What a complete joke.

  17. SOEbuc Says:

    The fourth and one using Vaughn instead of RoJo was just the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen because I’ve seen Vaughn get stuffed at the line too many times. Great call when our oline got destroyed tonight, Byron. Fire his ass if he doesn’t go on to ruin another team.

  18. Swampbuc Says:

    Boron was horrible tonight. He has many great games. This proves that he doesn;t know his competition — to me, his biggest weakness is treating every tean the sane no matter what defense they play.

    When all your weapons are healthy you can get away with that a lot of times. But when your top 5 best weapons are out, and you try to shift to an offense you hadn’t practiced because you do WALK THROUGHS — you get your arse handed to you.

    Bucs probability of winning another game is questionable and forget about advancing in any playoffs they might be in.

    Underachieving overhyped biotches. (The offense)

  19. SOEbuc Says:

    Are we the three seed because we beat Dallas???

  20. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    @ Bird & Francisco Guzman

    Both of you can live in your Bucs fantasy world thinking they’re all great and make excuses for this lost.

    Horrific coaching from Byron Suckwich……….intern PATHIC offense and poopy QB Play

    ……Plain and simple

  21. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    I’m Jee from top comment lol. I’ve been calling out Byron for 3 seasons now. He has not gotten any better at play calling. Look what happens when he doesn’t have 2 of the NFL’s best receivers. He doesn’t know what to do!

  22. Cobraboy Says:

    What happened to Jones? Those sweeps were wearing the Saints down, then…nothing.

  23. Cobraboy Says:

    The difference between 2020 and 2021 is plain to see:


  24. Chris l Says:

    Joe this isn’t an energy problem. It’s not like they came out from the get go and got trounced. We missed a kick, turned it over, missed short down plays on terrible calls to go deep. Our defense played very physical. I disagree with the whole physical thing. Yeah our offense got manhandled as per usual. It’s just a bad matchup for us. But slow the roll on the lack of energy and we got broken. My goodness that is an over reaction. We got beat badly and they played better in every way.

  25. bucschamps Says:

    so our invinsible O-line allowed 4 sacks….

  26. BuccoBDub Says:

    We are the spilled seed that never made it into the hole.

  27. Francisco Guzman Says:

    SOEbuc they have dallas as the second seed. Don’t know why. I thought head to head was the most important thing.

  28. Buc1987 Says:

    TheBucsAnthem…Leftsuck WAS calling plays all last season …and….

  29. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Ok the bucs have the 3rd seed because 3 teams right now are 10-4. It’s a three way tiebreaker. Bucs need to just win out and hope the rams can drop a game. Also the cardinals.

  30. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    …………….this is not the same offense we saw last year

    it simply isn’t

    This offense is so “Dink-n-Dunk”

    so unimaginative………….it is even funny

    Byron Leftwich is so bad that you’re telling me you’re left a stud RB like Ronald Jones sit on the bench along with Scotty Miller and OJ Howard and you’re telling me that you cannot even score any points at all with these players???

    Really Byron?????


  31. Cleanhouse Says:

    Should have rode RoJo

  32. Will Says:

    If I’m Rojo I’m definitely leaving this team next season. Even when he’s doing good they park him in the bench. He should’ve had a ton of carries tonight to take the pressure off Brady. He was clearly off and Gronk had a case of the drops but we kept throwing when the game wasn’t out of reach. BL get it together horrible game plan from the start. 10 passes to start against that defense. Smh
    Please get rid of our special teams coach. Every fan can see that Darden doesn’t belong back there. All I want him to do is call for the fair catch because a costly fumble is coming.
    Get well to all our guys that are hurt.

  33. Oneilbuc Says:

    Bird shut up Brady played bad !! Defense played good no excuses I told yall this would happen !! No excuses if Jamies would have played the game would have been worse. All yall do is blame BL when we lose but give Brady all the credit when we win.

  34. Oneilbuc Says:

    Now Youngbucs is no where to be found !! I told you I know more football than you.

  35. Trey Long Says:

    Terrible offensive play calling.
    Getting guys killed bc NO Clogged the middle.
    Where is play action,? That was painful

  36. Oneilbuc Says:

    Joe You played with God and now He’s showing you that Brady is just another weak man like all of us !!

  37. Pewter Power Says:

    Here comes the excuses when the truth is Brady covers up the deficiencies for the online. They’ll be average again once Brady retires

  38. Aaron Says:

    Not saying our D played bad but our offense was so bad that the saints stopped playing offense. They were willing to sit at 6 to 0…and wait till the Bucs O did something before actually taking any chances. When they got the FG to go up 9 to 0…everyone knew it was over…

  39. captivajim Says:

    the offense line was like a lipton Flo-thru tea bag

  40. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilbucyall you are a weak man or should I say weak minded. At least Brady showed some fight. It looked like the only 3 on offense that gave a shat was Brady, Lenny & Godwin the rest were just going along on the ride including the idiot coaching staff. The D played great but let’s be honest, Hill isn’t the most talented QB and they missing two starting tackles and their play caller. Hey if Harbaugh wasn’t such an idiot GB should of lost today to. He failed to kick the FG on the games first series and went for 2 and missed losing by 1 point instead of go into OT AT HOME!

  41. Stone crab sam Says:

    If the Bucs offense played any worse, they’ll have go back to their traditional ‘pink and lace’, uniforms with bozo the clowns on each and every helmet, except number 12 😬
    I mean we got man handled and abused tonight in every way possible, short of being to graphic, that one hurt. Ouch.
    Damit man.

  42. bucschamp Says:

    Oline played overconfident. they were thinking about Christmas carols and ham. guess what, saints mauled them. Brady need to right this ship

  43. PT in NYC Says:

    Unfocused and unprepared. It’s time to throw yourself under the bus, Bruce

  44. Ed Says:

    I think Dennis Allen, Saints D coordinator was as much a winner as Leftwich was the loser last night. All the talk about him being a top level head coach candidate is hype. Last night there was no doubt that his offense was easy to stop by an experienced group like the Saint have on the sidelines.

    Trent Dilfer flashbacks last night.

    National TV disgrace. High school football game.

  45. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar I get it Brady will never be blamed for nothing to you .

  46. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oneilbucyall we never see you when the offense and or Brady plays great, just when he doesn’t. I will say one thing agree or not I don’t give a shat, the only one on offense that didn’t stick his tail between his leg and got pissed and kept fighting was Brady. The coaches had.NO answer for the onslaught. So go celebrate because your Saints beat a BA team again and send a tweet to your blow buddy Winston congratulating him on the win because we all know you creepingly follow him.

  47. Eddie Marz Says:

    Blew a great opportunity to stay in the hunt for top seed. Need to regroup and kick ass the next three games. Rojo should not run out of bounds, what’s he going to do next? Slide like a QB. OJ seems done. Darden is useless. Have to put guys who want it in. Stop waiting for them to step up. GOBUCS!

  48. Rob Singer Says:

    It’s ONTO CAROLINA everybody. Why all the negativity? Most of Brady’s passes other than the throwaways we’re spot-on. But in Gisele’s famous words: “Tommy can’t throw the ball and catch it both!”

    So many drops along with Gronk just flubbing his chances up. It happens during football seasons–even to the best. Just be thankful the egg was laid all in the same game, and none of it was saved for the rest of the season or playoffs. If you noticed, Evens and Godwin both CAUGHT the passes they got hurt on. They will be back (Godwin hopefully for the playoff run). AB is returning. Miller needed a game to wake himself up. The long bombs are coming.

    Did the Bucs fold last year after getting DESTROYED by the Saints twice? Nope. It won’t happen this year either. The young replacements were surprisingly unprepared when they got the call last night. They couldn’t get open or separate. That’s on Arians.

    I don’t think NO will make the playoffs this year but if they do and we have to play them, they’ll go down again. That’s Brady. He wins the big ones.

  49. Oneilbuc Says:

    Listnfrmafar I had the bucs to win this game !! You say I come on when the bucs offense plays bad but that’s a lie . I’ve given Brady credit when he deserved it but I don’t make him the only reason why we win like you do !! And when plays bad you make every excuse for Brady but when we win it’s all because of Brady you need to go root for the Patriots!! Trask will be the next quarterback and you will be back with the Patriots.
