Buccaneers-Panthers, Open Thread

December 26th, 2021

Sort of a playoff-like game today at Carolina and there are zero excuses against a bad Panthers team. The Bucs must win and should win.

Chat with fellow fans and a few haters all game long in the comments below. Please be nice! It’s not so hard. Keep it clean.

Go Bucs!!!

    Go Bucs for sure. I look for a good game by all.

  2. HC Grover Says:

    Crunch time.

  3. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I fully admit that I have no idea what to expect today. It certainly doesn’t help that we are missing Evans, Godwin, Fournette and Winfield.

  4. SteveK Says:

    All I want for Christmas is to whip some Carolina Panther ass today! Go bucs!

  5. SteveK Says:

    Excited to see our depth on full display today and go Bucs!

  6. snookman Says:

    look for a low scoring game with lots of miscues. There are too many pieces missing on offense for the bucs. I can see a game similar to the ATL falcons at end of last season. Bucs may not clinch until Monday night. Im a realist…..you cannot expect the Bucs to be a well oiled machine when they are missing their top 3 playmakers on offense. No hate on the Bucs but this is the NFL and anyone can beat anyone on any given day especially if your team is missing its 3 best play makers.

  7. Devinwhiteshorse2 Says:

    Go Bucs! Lets get this win today!

  8. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Some of these wideouts have to start stepping up.

  9. HC Grover Says:

    ROJO last stand. TJ better play. Howard better not be a coward.

  10. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Gotta take care of business and just get a w.

  11. Kansas95Buc Says:

    Let’s go Bucs, hope everyone had a good weekend

  12. HC Grover Says:

    Grayson in game.

  13. HC Grover Says:

    AB open.

  14. HC Grover Says:

    Howard makes a block.

  15. HC Grover Says:

    Bad throw by Brady.

  16. HC Grover Says:

    Sum tin wong wit Brady!

  17. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Pitiful start. This team needs to wake up. Start executing.

  18. Wesley Says:

    Brady letting that MVP slip away.

  19. HC Grover Says:

    WTF wuz dat?

  20. unbelievable Says:

    LOL @ this offense

  21. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Horrible punt!!!

  22. Stanglassman Says:

    Who ran the wrong route on that 3rd down?

  23. Anonymous Says:

    What was that 3rd down play?

  24. HC Grover Says:

    Brady is out of it, Put in Trask

  25. Stanglassman Says:

    Keyshawn is punting now?

  26. cmurda Says:

    It is really hard to watch this offense lost in outer space. Coaching, coaching, coaching. When guys are running the wrong routes, that is on coaching. This shouldn’t happen when you just got your ass whipped because of crap coaching.

  27. HC Grover Says:

    Continuation of last 6 quarters.

  28. Wild Bill Says:

    Brady throws? Fear the rush?

  29. Francisco Guzman Says:

    If this team makes newton look great just cancel the season.

  30. Jersey buc Says:

    O carried this team slot of the year. Time for the D to do it to close out the year. People please stop crying after one series. Always the same ones crying there asses off.

  31. Stanglassman Says:

    Whitehead came to play today

  32. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    They can get open under 1 sec

  33. cmurda Says:

    Bring pressure on Cam on 3rd down. He’s not the most accurate passer and we should be able to trust our defense to make a tackle on a hot read.

  34. wff0077@yahoo.com Says:

    Jordan Whitehead playing ANGRY. I like it!

  35. Francisco Guzman Says:

    What os this defense doing?

  36. unbelievable Says:

    LOL @ this defense

  37. HC Grover Says:

    EZ as pumpkin Pie. Good Grief. Oh No not again! This team is in deep trouble.

  38. cmurda Says:

    Wow. That’s pathetic defense. No surprise whatsoever. The only thing Cam can do, he does. Missing LVD greatly.

  39. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team is done.

  40. unbelievable Says:

    pathetic. pathetic. pathetic.

  41. Pruritus Ani Says:

    Oh boy

  42. HC Grover Says:

    Ongoing collapse. 7th quarter of it.

  43. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Sooo undiscipline.

  44. cmurda Says:

    Whoa. An offsides? That never happens 3 times a game to us

  45. T REX Says:

    Such lack of awareness

  46. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Please, please, please stop them on 3rd down!

  47. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    What an idiot

  48. Beeej Says:

    Was JTS out of his lane on that run?

  49. Upstate NY BUC Says:

    Here we go terrible defense!!!

  50. unbelievable Says:

    hey they got a stop! wow.

  51. HC Grover Says:

    Thank goodness it is the Panthers. Only 3 pts down so far. Is Brady hurt?

  52. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Wide open

  53. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This offense has to start making plays otherwise it will be a long afternoon.

  54. cmurda Says:

    Happy to hold for a FG but it won’t matter at all if Lefty and this offense can’t get its head out of its rear

  55. Wild Bill Says:

    Wow Newton choked on an easy td.

  56. SackOWins Says:

    Down 3-0. Game over.

  57. HC Grover Says:

    The Fear Factor now when the Bucs play. We wonder….what next?

  58. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.

  59. tbbucs3 Says:

    Brady looks washed

  60. HC Grover Says:

    Hope T Brady is OK to play.

  61. HC Grover Says:

    Brady….somethin’ wrong with him?

  62. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Stop with the brady bashing! It’s the wideouts. AB is likely going to get doubled!!!!!

  63. lars tatersalad Says:

    with pinion out i wonder who handles kickoffs? i hope to find out before the 2nd half

  64. HC Grover Says:

    AB strikes.

  65. unbelievable Says:

    Wait Pinion is injured too now? LOL

  66. HC Grover Says:

    So far Jones delivering.

  67. HC Grover Says:

    Vaughn STRIKES! Yee Haw!!!

  68. tbbucs3 Says:

    Let’s GO Vaughn!!!

  69. Wesley Says:

    Believe in Vaughn y’all!

  70. Wesley Says:


  71. cmurda Says:

    Whoa. Holy whoa. Is it fair to say that Vaughn just made a play. Holy moly. That cutback late in the run and to still get in the endzone. Me likey

  72. unbelievable Says:

    Dangggggg Vaughn!

  73. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I don’t believe what I just saw. VAUGHN!? That’s by far the best play he’s had since he’s been in the league.

  74. HC Grover Says:

    Its Been a while!

  75. Jersey buc Says:


  76. BitcoinTom Says:

    So who was trashing Vaughn last week???

  77. Casual Observer Says:

    Like everybody on this site has been sayin, “Vaughn is the man!”

  78. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Running the ball? Who would have thunk it? About time

  79. Surfslowson Says:

    Vaughn with a perfect run, fantastic use of his blocker down field, made 3 people miss, one man twice

  80. Devinwhiteshorse2 Says:


  81. unbelievable Says:

    a little Pink Floyd on the outro music too

  82. Derek Says:


  83. BuccaneerButters Says:

    Sneak! Omg!

  84. HC Grover Says:

    Now to see if Plan 9 can play. Vaughn looked good on that run.

  85. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Now stick with the run game

  86. Buczilla Says:

    Oh damn! Where has that that been from Vaughn? Great run kid!

  87. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Great job Vaugh/Barber but why not do that (one two punch) all season instead wearing out Lenny damn it.

  88. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Pressure back on the defense.

  89. Kstoges Says:

    i like how rojo and Vaughn are playing so far 100000307470 percent.

  90. Will Says:

    Wow! Vaughn to the house looked like an NFL player on that one!

  91. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Vaughn is a bust…blah blah blah…he hasn’t had a consistent opportunity same as Rojo when he was fist couple years. That was him and a downfield block that made that happen…great vision by him to turn the downfield defender into the blocker!!!

  92. unbelievable Says:

    BitcoinTom Says:
    December 26th, 2021 at 1:25 pm
    So who was trashing Vaughn last week???


    :: raises hand ::

    I was actually high on Vaughn going into last year, but then he kept chitting the bed on the few chances he got during live action, so I soured on him.

    Nice to to see him show some moves in real action though! I’ve been saying all the way back to 2019 that this offense is so much better when our backs get touches and chances to really get going.

    We’ve only lost 1 game under Arians when either RoJo or Fournette got 11 or more carries. So when we come out against the Saints and just throw 15 times in a row, it’s fkn maddening.

  93. Wesley Says:

    Been saying for 2 years now to give Vaughn a real chance. More than just one or two plays to show something.

  94. Eckwood Says:

    As I have said over and over Vaughn can play and BTW for the blind eyed folks ,OJ had two great seal blocks on that play ………Yes OJ sealed two guys !!

  95. NaplesBucsFan Says:


  96. tbbucs3 Says:

    Whitehead is a beast

  97. bucs4life Says:

    I’m gonna go on a limb here and say that PERHAPS



    We should ran the dang ball instead of throwing it 50 times per game?

    Especially against teams daring us to throw, like the freaking slimy Saints?

    Just maybe, Mr. Leftwich, Mr. Arians and Mr. Brady?


  98. unbelievable Says:

    Whitehead starting to look like his speed has finally come back…

  99. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    All our rbs have had Viv runs against Carolina

  100. tbbucs3 Says:

    Why are the Bucs corners playing 30 yards off on 3rd and 4?

  101. cmurda Says:

    LOL. Freaking of course that pops up right to him for the 1st down. Perfectly defended. This D cant buy a break on 3rd down.

  102. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This defense has to start getting off the field on 3rd down

  103. Wesley Says:

    Holy crap a nice play by SMB

  104. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    2 guys and still couldn’t stop it

  105. HC Grover Says:

    Cam the Man! Thank U!

  106. unbelievable Says:

    hell yeah

  107. Surfslowson Says:

    This is SMBs time of the year, we need him that way

  108. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:


  109. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Whitehead…JOHNY ON THE SPOT…good to see him getting healthy and back to his bruising ballhawk style!!!

  110. cmurda Says:

    Oh yeah. Have a game Whitehead. Now that defense is softened up looking for some runs and I have a feeling TB and AB are about to connect. That would be lovely and give our offense some much needed mojo

  111. unbelievable Says:

    Whithead straight beasting right now.

    Big props to Shaq too!

  112. unbelievable Says:

    @cmurda agreed

  113. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Scram Newton folks!

  114. HC Grover Says:

    Feed Vaughn! Lets see what he can do.

  115. Derek Says:

    Whitehead baby!!

  116. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Scam Newton. Sham Newton. He and Brees should have a long ball contest.

  117. Francisco Guzman Says:

    These other wideouts have to step up.

  118. Caleb lee Says:

    Anyone else seeing the Bucs end C Newton’s career the year after we end Drew Brees’? Next year we retire Matt Ryan as well? 😁

  119. HC Grover Says:

    Refs in the game

  120. Surfslowson Says:

    OJ sighting, brought back. 🤦

  121. Surfslowson Says:

    We never get that call, and it has happened to us all year

  122. Wesley Says:

    Keep throwing to Howard!

  123. crazybucs_CL Says:

    passing game is DEAD

  124. EA Says:

    AB needs to STFUP and contribute

  125. HC Grover Says:

    Need this play.

  126. cmurda Says:

    Lefty seems all one way or the other. Its either short passes and runs or bombs. Dude, dial some shots for AB down field.

  127. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Too many penalties. Don’t let this awful team hang around.

  128. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Will we throw more than 10 yards today?

  129. crazybucs_CL Says:

    @”….AB needs to STFUP and contribute….
    Tom can’t through……

  130. HC Grover Says:

    Hot Damn!

  131. crazybucs_CL Says:

    AB.. still a super star

  132. HC Grover Says:

    Mix it up.

  133. unbelievable Says:

    Nice throw and catch.

    Good blocking from the o-line

  134. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    AB only one getting open

  135. BucsBro Says:

    Anyone still think we should have let go of AB? lol

  136. HC Grover Says:

    Running 1st down!

  137. BuccoDav Says:

    RoJo running hard…

  138. HC Grover Says:


  139. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Dude said that was the same exact play to Vaughn.

  140. HC Grover Says:

    AB time

  141. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Only need a 1st NOT 20+ yards…someone get open 7/8 yards and make the YAC

  142. Anonymous Says:

    That same running angle left angle right both SUCK

  143. HC Grover Says:

    Succcop it up!

  144. cmurda Says:

    Kick the FG. Dont overthink this. Please hit it Ryan

  145. Wesley Says:

    Out of sync yet again.

  146. cmurda Says:


  147. Anonymous Says:

    That same running play angle left or angle right from the backfield SUX

  148. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Where is gronk? These other wideouts are completely useless!!!! Not getting open.

  149. Wesley Says:

    Not one ball yet to Gronk or Johnson wtf Byron.

  150. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Tom can’t through, is been 8 quarters… ???!!!???

  151. cmurda Says:

    Not on that drive Wesley. I like what I’m seeing here. I agree with our commitment to the run. Lefty is calling a pretty good game but after 3 straight runs for a 1st. Don’t run on 1st down again. He did and it stalled the drive. Obviously, armchair coaching here because if ROJO takes that to the house, I’m praising the playcall.

  152. BBro Says:

    That same running play that angles from the right or left in the backfield SUX

  153. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Why are you all b!tching about BL not getting the ball to Gronk or TJ???? Is BL throwing the damn ball?? Are they getting open??? STFU with your nonsense

  154. Fred Says:

    Where’s Gronk?

  155. cmurda Says:

    So much for the lead. LOL. That just happened

  156. HC Grover Says:

    Back to the routine.

  157. Francisco Guzman Says:

    San darnold? Really?

  158. HC Grover Says:

    Maybe they only get 3. I hope.

  159. unbelievable Says:

    Sean Murphy Burnt-Toast strikes again.

    Completely lost.

  160. Wesley Says:

    Timeout? Wtf?

  161. cmurda Says:

    Breakdown. SMB bit hard. It happens. He’s a playmaker but no help over the top? That play can’t freaking happen when we are squeezing them on defense. Ridiculous

  162. unbelievable Says:


  163. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Panters with college football schemes is beating our D ….wow

  164. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    That was not his fault

  165. Anonymous Says:

    JFC, where were you SMB?

  166. Surfslowson Says:

    No communication on the backend for that long pass

  167. HC Grover Says:

    Whitehead lassoed him.

  168. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Panters with two QBs…. is beating our D…. DC Tooooodddddd where are you????

  169. cmurda Says:

    SMB didn’t get toasted. He was in a zone and it look like he got faked out. It’s still on him but it’s different then getting roasted. Either way, that was dumb by SMB. There was plenty of help on the first level. He shouldn’t have been cheating there. He got his hands caught. This needs to be a wake up call. We need to step up our game on offense and defense. This ain’t good enough

  170. HC Grover Says:

    4 point present.

  171. BuccoDav Says:

    Way to stand tough, D!

  172. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Ran right into that sack

  173. PassingThru Says:

    It looked like a safety blitz that backfired.

  174. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    About time Shaq! At least we’re holding them to FGs down in the red zone.

  175. Surfslowson Says:

    Let’s go BUCS! Let go get a touchdown

  176. BitcoinTom Says:

    Whitehead is a freaking beast

  177. Francisco Guzman Says:

    The Bucs need a td in the worse way. Don’t let this team hang around. These wideouts need to get open.

  178. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Bend don’t break…not overly impressed though since these last two weeks have been underperforming offenses. These deep shots are not a good sign since a decent offense could hit those more often. Come on D shut em down and O get your act together even with backups.

  179. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Hope this d doesn’t break

  180. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Panthers have great gameplan. Playing 2 bad QB’s, hoping to make 1 good one.

  181. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    SMB just made a bad split second decision to go after the short route instead of at with the deep route

  182. Jersey buc Says:

    Bashing SMB had 2 nice break ups🤦🏻‍♂️ The long play was busted on the back end he picked up Anderson in the flat. 2 big plays let up one busted coverage defense is playing just fine. Go bitch in a Carolina page

  183. cmurda Says:

    Nice Shaq. Way to show up at a big time. Lets get the offense rolling. I know Brady will get some shots in. He will get his. The Panthers have a strong defense especially the secondary and after AB, there ain’t much.

  184. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Can Tom do it ???!!!???

  185. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Can Tom through the ball???!!!???

  186. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    RoJo gassed after 2 runs?

  187. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Is a pleasurer watching AB

  188. HC Grover Says:

    Thank u panthers.

  189. wff0077@yahoo.com Says:

    If we had had AB for every game, there’d be 2 more wins.

  190. crazybucs_CL Says:

    OL is not helping…..

  191. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:


  192. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Tom ???!!!???

  193. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This offense looks pedestrian. Can’t finish drives.

  194. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:


  195. HC Grover Says:

    O looks pre season form.

  196. Surfslowson Says:

    Poor execution, should have been easy first down to Brate. OJ in the way

  197. cmurda Says:

    Gorgeous throw by Brady to AB with the toe tap and then pathetic playcalling. Nothing there. Nobody but Ab can get open on this team. What happened to Gronk? My goodness. We just stall right around their red zone. Should have been 3 straight runs. That’s when you go hard on the run. 1 run and Lefty throws it when nobody is getting open. Come on boys. Good job Succop. Lets go Bucs

  198. wff0077@yahoo.com Says:

    I’m gonna blame that on OJ

  199. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Can you imagine Brady’s stats if AB wasn’t playing?

  200. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    2nd and 3 and you are throwing??? Commit to the FREAKING RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  201. Stanglassman Says:

    That was on OJ for not clearing out for Brate coming across?

  202. HC Grover Says:

    Traffic Jam on right side.

  203. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Keep letting the panthers hang around. They get the ball to start the 3rd quarter.

  204. wff0077@yahoo.com Says:

    I’m blaming that on OJ.

  205. PassingThru Says:

    Chemistry problems abound on that failed third down pass.

  206. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    This is what you get when 57% of your offense is on the side line

  207. Derek Says:

    Brady getting erratic with his passes

  208. Will Says:

    Stop the empty sets!

  209. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Seem like OJ, don’t know where he supposed to be. Just my opinion.

  210. Stanglassman Says:

    At least OJ is blocking decent today.

  211. wff0077@yahoo.com Says:

    OJ sucks

  212. crazybucs_CL Says:

    they not letting them, that is the best they can do….. is a pattern now….

  213. LVMYBUCS Says:

    This just dumb play calling, you have back ups out there Leftwitch call plays as such.

  214. bucs4life Says:

    just run on second down and throw to AB since our tight ends wanna put on a clown show every week

  215. rrsrq Says:

    @the game, Brady trying to get the ball out quick, not trusting open receivers

  216. HC Grover Says:

    Vaughn scores Vaughn dissappears.

  217. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Tyler Johnson, Scotty Miller, etc. Are these guys totally useless?

  218. Will Says:

    BL scared to commit to the run. Come on!

  219. Francisco Guzman Says:

    @rrsrq nobody is getting open besides AB.

  220. bucs4life Says:

    tyler johnson being ahead of perriman and grayson on the depth chart is a total joke

  221. Wild Bill Says:

    Howard and Brate head on collision. Who ran the wrong route? Dumb ass play.

  222. Wild Bill Says:

    No Scotty to stretch the field?

  223. cmurda Says:

    Nice play by Barner. Too bad he slipped but that was the right play. Already improvement over Darden

  224. HC Grover Says:


  225. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    It’s gonna be alright.

  226. cmurda Says:

    Nothing wrong with Tom. Perfect pass. Lets finish this

  227. bucs4life Says:

    what did i just tell you guys? grayson is WAY better at getting open than johnson

  228. BitcoinTom Says:

    Put Grayson instead of Scotty and Johnson. Dude can get separation

  229. cmurda Says:

    There’s the problem with Rojo’s game. He needs to turn immediately. Come on ROJO

  230. BuccoDav Says:


  231. DaBux Says:

    And that’s why RoJo will be playing for some scrub team next year.

  232. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Grayson, 2 career receptions, umpteen yards.

  233. BitcoinTom Says:

    Rojo is a good runner. And an idiot pass catcher. That’s why Brady don’t trust him

  234. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    This is a pretty good half of football against a stout defense.

  235. cmurda Says:

    The announcers talked about Gronk picking the guy. He came nowhere near picking the guy. He just ran his route and actually got held by the guy he supposedly picked. Where do they find these guys?

  236. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Brady has really locked on brate. Don’t know if that’s by design.

  237. Wild Bill Says:

    Nice route Brate!

  238. crazybucs_CL Says:

    why they don’t kick the FG???!!!!

  239. PassingThru Says:

    Great pass, hit Grayson in stride.

  240. PassingThru Says:

    Going for 2 is the right call… Go RoJo.

  241. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    “Playoff Brate”

  242. rrsrq Says:

    Why s the shuttle pass not a part of the offense

  243. crazybucs_CL Says:

    there u go……terrible coaching

  244. PassingThru Says:

    A bit surprised, I thought they’d go with a running play.

  245. Wild Bill Says:

    Kick the dam extra point!

  246. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Johnson sucks he looks lost as usual bench his as.

  247. HC Grover Says:

    That Grayson is somethin’ else. Where he been hiding?

  248. cmurda Says:

    And Lefty chooses not to run from the 1 for the 2 pot conversion. Ummm okay. With that said, Lefty is calling a good game. A very good game. The Panthers have a very good defense. Aside from 2 big, fat plays given up from defensive breakdowns, Todd and his defense have been excellent.

  249. crazybucs_CL Says:

    with this team we have, we need every single point….??!!!???

  250. Derek Says:

    Stupid 2 pt play

  251. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I don’t get the going for 2. Now they’re only up 13

  252. bucs4life Says:

    tyler johnson is always shut down in coverage smh

  253. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Going for 2 was the right call. That was the wrong call. Announcer even knew AB was motioning in. They could have toss sweep to other side

  254. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Why are they going for two? Just kick the damn extra point!!!

  255. Eckwood Says:

    Def some good things happening but why would you run that play to Jones at the goal line , your just asking for a pic six and really !! That’s not his game he doesn’t convert that but maybe 1 out of 10 ……. Just moronically stubborn to the play book vs the personnel……….. Jeez who called that play Brandon ??

  256. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    If I was calling the plays, I’d let somebody else call the plays, lol

  257. cmurda Says:

    The NFL panzy league considers that a late hit. We are giving away points. Be smart. You know they call those stupid penalties

  258. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Stupid penalties!!!!!!!!

  259. BuccoDav Says:

    He pulled up. That’s B.S.

  260. Wesley Says:

    Get outta here with that b.s. roughing q.b. calls NFL.

  261. PassingThru Says:

    Nice breakup by Dean.

  262. bucs4life Says:

    that’s a terrible late blitz by devin white, he really had nowhere to go

  263. cmurda Says:

    Oh no. I think Shaq turned his ankle. Please, we cannot take any more injuries.

  264. BuccoDav Says:

    Seriously? Another injury…

  265. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    F*** ANOTHER injury to a starter at he end of the season…come on!!!!

  266. HC Grover Says:

    2 plays made by the refs this half.

  267. PassingThru Says:

    You’ve gotta be kidding… another injury to a key player?

  268. bucs4life Says:

    ankle injury for barrett. all we needed, right?

  269. Surfslowson Says:

    Please be alright Shaq, we need you

  270. Wesley Says:

    Something weird going on with all these injuries.

  271. crazybucs_CL Says:

    i think one of ours kicked him on his calf

  272. HC Grover Says:

    Barnun looks better than that little feller.

  273. Surfslowson Says:

    Is Scottie playing today?

  274. Stone crab sam Says:

    Shaq got kicked in the shin. All good

  275. crazybucs_CL Says:

    34 sec left… Tom is not even trying….. last year that was 80-90% TD ???!!!???

  276. JimmyJack Says:

    Really glad to see this OL playing much better then they did last week. We are going nowhere if they repeat last weeks performance. Fox showed a stat the Panthers are the #2 defense so this is a good test.

    Awesome to see AB step right in. He is our pass offense right now. After him Cyril Grayson has done more this year then all our backup recievers combined……..The running game looks great with RoJo right now but if we dont have a deadly pass attack we probably arent winning a SuperBowl. We need Brate and/or O.J. to up their games.

    Whitehead having a career game. Our passrush looks strong and Carlton basically takes away a third of the field. This defense is peaking and Bucs fans should feel confident we can win a title with this defense……..Shoutout to SMB also, Im sure most in here see one play(where he had to cover 2 recievers) and think he stink but he has played a really good half of football. You people arent getting it.

    Enjoy the 2nd half boys. GO BUCS!!!!

  277. firethecannons Says:

    why do we not send scotty miller out for a long ball with 30 sec on clock?

  278. HC Grover Says:

    I do not get the 2 point play? A kick and they would of been up 14? Why?

  279. BitcoinTom Says:

    They went for 2 because of the penalty that gave them a half distance to the goal. So going for 2 is the right choice.

  280. Kansas95Buc Says:

    Hopefully we can keep the momentum and not dial it back after a lead

  281. BitcoinTom Says:

    But they should run it n the middle or play action to the side

  282. bucs4life Says:

    the 2 point play was due to the penalty which shortened the field to the goal line

  283. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Crazybuc he’s missing 57% of his weapons that’s what happened

  284. HC Grover Says:

    OK so why pass for 2 if only 1 yard? Nonsense.

  285. Miller5252 Says:

    My kid said it best….. AB has crazy eyes today!! When he has crazy eyes you better look out!

  286. rrsrq Says:

    Let Shaq sit out 2nd half

  287. HC Grover Says:

    Put in Grayson and Vaughn.

  288. BitcoinTom Says:

    Hc grover. Coz the probability of getting a 2 point conversion is now high because of that penalty

  289. BitcoinTom Says:

    And I agree it shouldve been a run or a sneak

  290. HC Grover Says:

    Bitcoin they passed. What diff 1 or 2 yards?

  291. HC Grover Says:

    Wildman Stuard loves ST play!

  292. Oxycodoms Says:

    Bucs highly dependent on brown the rest of the season

  293. cmurda Says:

    Big hair flying down the field. What a Mr Irrelevant pick Licht made

  294. HC Grover Says:

    TX Cam

  295. HC Grover Says:

    Nelson better than Plan 9

  296. HC Grover Says:

    Barner better than Plan 1

  297. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That might have been the best punt return of our season.

  298. cmurda Says:

    Nice return. Really liking Barner. Lets go offense. Lets throw daggers.

  299. Listnfrmafar Says:

    No Risk it No Biscuit

  300. geno711 Says:

    Barner looks much better than Darden as punt returner IMO.

  301. EA Says:

    Where’s Cam and his silly superman gesture now, bwahahahahaha…..

  302. Buc Neckid Says:

    Barner > Darden

  303. Go Bucs! Says:

    So far so good for Barner

  304. Oxycodoms Says:

    Barner has less dancing and more north south

  305. cmurda Says:

    Dang. That 2nd down one Tom just missed. That one was nice though.

  306. crazybucs_CL Says:

    AB, The man

  307. Tbbucs3 Says:

    What does Tyler Johnson do exactly?

  308. BucsBro Says:

    Thank goodness AB keeps himself in such great shape. He was never going to play just 30 snaps or whatever. He’s Brady’s security blanket.

  309. HC Grover Says:


  310. bucs4life Says:

    @Tbbucs3 miss blocks

  311. cmurda Says:

    Great adjustment and catch and play by Gronk. Lets finish this boys.

  312. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard is assuming that OJ Howard has been discussed. Howard agrees with Beckles about Howard. Howard thinks Howard should be cut tomorrow…..or better yet traded to the despicable saints

  313. Howard Cosell Says:

    #Trade OJ Howard to the saints

  314. crazybucs_CL Says:

    even with Gronk open…. Tom through…. ???!!!!!!?????

  315. HC Grover Says:

    Run it in.

  316. Eckwood Says:

    Btw Vaughn just made a 2 nd 9 out of a play Fournette would have lost three,,,,,, hey Vaughn can do things Fournette can do but 2 nd and 9 is way diff than 2 nd and 13

  317. PassingThru Says:

    Looks like Gilmore hurt his knee

  318. crazybucs_CL Says:

    run it 4 times

  319. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Yeah then watch Payton discover the secret and turns him into another Jimmy Graham

  320. crazybucs_CL Says:

    u put guys on sunday w/o practice… what u expect

  321. T REX Says:

    OJ and rojo won’t be here next year hopefully

  322. HC Grover Says:


  323. crazybucs_CL Says:

    Tom ….. huhhhh

  324. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Don’t mean to be the spelling police but crazybuc please learn how to spell threw

  325. crazybucs_CL Says:


  326. Howard Cosell Says:

    Rojo had a dropped pass, but other than that he’s be serviceable. Howard is just a liability. He has no value

  327. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Wasted plays

  328. crazybucs_CL Says:

    i like it as is….^^^^

  329. cmurda Says:

    RUN THE BALL Lefty. I don’t know why he is allergic to calling a 1st down run at the goal line. The 2nd down is when not to run it because the entire defense knows it. Playcalling is lousy right now at the goal line. Get in boys

  330. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Looked like he had that in

  331. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Absolutely agree Cmurda. You gotta run on 1st down there.

  332. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    🤣 crazy

  333. crazybucs_CL Says:

    there u go….

  334. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Have to finish those drives for tds!!!! Too many empty drives.

  335. cmurda Says:

    Poor execution at the goalline. Unfortunately, another bad drop by Gronk

  336. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Brady is damn dude dont u know where u suppose to be lol lol

  337. Spicoli Says:

    Glad we can 3 point them to death lol

  338. cmurda Says:

    Alvin, I know this seems redundant but I think it’s wise to run almost everytime inside the 10 yard line. I understand the exception if it’s further out but not from the 4 yard line. That’s just dumb to go to lesser percentage of success plays.

  339. Go Bucs! Says:

    87 went sit down with 27. the drop club doghouse

  340. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    1st and goal inside the 5 and you FREAKING PASS on 1st down??????????


  341. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Can’t close out a game dropping td passes

  342. Bangkok Buc Says:

    Lets go D
    Keep holding em

  343. Surfslowson Says:

    Gronk is off for some reason, between this week and last he has had some unusual drops.

  344. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Damn Gronk u need to lay off the parting

  345. Oxycodoms Says:

    Missing evans in the red zone today

  346. BucsBro Says:

    Gronk needs to get his groove back for the playoffs

  347. Kstoges Says:

    What you guys don’t realize is they are throwing it because they are trying to get Brady the mvp🤣

  348. crazybucs_CL Says:

    i think Gronk is separating from his GF…. is emotional…. she told him to pick between her and Tom…. he blinked…. so…

  349. Will Says:

    BL again afraid to commit to the run. Smh

  350. rrsrq Says:

    Should be up by 30, UT we will take the t-shirt and hat game win

  351. Jerry Says:

    Barrett out for the game.

  352. cmurda Says:

    Whitehead just stopped that playcall from the rest of the game. Newton nearly needed funeral arrangements.

  353. BitcoinTom Says:

    Whitehead beast

  354. Boltsfan17 Says:

    So done with Leftwich and his ridiculous play calling. Seems to just pick plays out of hat. The O is really trending in the wrong direction. If the Panthers weren’t so awful this would be trouble.

  355. cmurda Says:

    Damn Shaq’s out Jerry? Dammit

  356. PassingThru Says:

    Yikes, Barrett with a knee injury?

  357. BitcoinTom Says:

    Tipped by whitehead. Boi is everywhere.

  358. PassingThru Says:

    Cam Newton is just a terrible passing QB. Lots of flat trajectory passes, easy to deflect.

  359. crazybucs_CL Says:

    VV… beast

  360. HC Grover Says:

    OK put it away now.

  361. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Scram sacked again. Hope Whitehead stays healthy

  362. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Whitehead is having a MONSTER game.

  363. HC Grover Says:

    Run Pass Run now.

  364. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Kick return makes me laugh every time either he trips or falls on his own or nothing.

  365. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Panthers are knee deep in doo-doo
    Whether they realize it, or not

  366. crazybucs_CL Says:

    AB, The man…

  367. BuccoDav Says:

    Brady the gazelle…

  368. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Every time Brady tucks and runs, I almost sh&t my pants!

  369. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Where’s the run blocking?

  370. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    At least he didn’t fumble

  371. orlbucfan Says:

    Brady rushed. Didn’t stroke out.

  372. PassingThru Says:

    Damn, move Brady to RB!

  373. cmurda Says:

    Bruce is probably fuming over the Brady run. It was pretty though. It could serve as the dagger for this game if we finish this one.

  374. Howard Cosell Says:

    Howard shouted at his TV “CAREFUL DUDE !!!”

  375. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Good call

  376. HC Grover Says:

    15 New Weapon

  377. cmurda Says:

    Run the ball on 1st and goal this time

  378. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Gawwwd scares the heck out of me when TB runs like that.

  379. Surfslowson Says:

    Grayson is showing off today, taking advantage of his opportunity

  380. Howard Cosell Says:

    BA should shame Brady for his runs

  381. Spicoli Says:

    Whitehead is showcasing for a new contract this game lol

  382. BitcoinTom Says:

    Grayson brown.

  383. BuccoDav Says:


  384. Go Bucs! Says:

    punch rojo in

  385. crazybucs_CL Says:

    so run it , right

  386. cmurda Says:

    That’s what I’m talking about Lefty. Love the design and the adjustment.

  387. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Jones for the walk in

  388. Howard Cosell Says:

    Rojo =\= OJ Howard
    (Rojo does not equal OJ Howard)

  389. HC Grover Says:

    Brady back in groove.

  390. cmurda Says:

    You ain’t kidding. Grayson is emerging as a guy that’s going to see the field often.

  391. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    This one is over!

  392. Howard Cosell Says:

    Rojo will bloom eventually. Howard thionk Howard will never bloom


  393. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I told u Johnson dont know what he is doing out there

  394. PassingThru Says:

    OK, gentlemen’s bet time…

    Who would bet OJ Howard gets one pass reception today? In garbage time of course.

  395. BitcoinTom Says:

    Brady with that high IQ PLAY. Dodge an illegal motion penalty

  396. HC Grover Says:


  397. EA Says:

    Mark Sanchez is just as bad of a color commentator as he was a player.

  398. Derek Says:

    Great drive!

  399. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    TB12, starting to like Grayson.

  400. Jersey buc Says:

    Where’s all the cry babies? Brady sucks. Coaching sucks. Defense sucks.
    Again go away. This coaching staff has done a great job today working with is out there.

  401. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    D’oeuvre Teams Superman Grant Stoudard

  402. BitcoinTom Says:

    Grayson and brown are the only thing that can get separation today.

  403. Wesley Says:

    Is Miller even playing today?

  404. cmurda Says:

    I shouldn’t get ahead of myself because I’ve been a Bucs fan for a long, long time and I’ve seen some ugly things but I absolutely have to tip my cap to Todd Bowles. He has been working with a banged up defense all year. Lately he got some of his horses in the secondary back and it’s proving that he’s a good coach and our young corners are very good. I like the rebound that this team is showing. Now, we need to stay hungry through the rest of the game

  405. BitcoinTom Says:

    Whitehead MVP

  406. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    When they leave their feet push them out of bounds

  407. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    For the Panthers, resistance is futile.

  408. Casual Observer Says:

    Whitehead is a super star.

  409. Howard Cosell Says:

    #Trade Howard to the despicable saints

  410. Bojim Says:

    Just in case hey snookman?

  411. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    If the defense can continue to play like this, we have a chance in the playoffs, particularly if Shaq is ok and we can get Evans, Winfield and David back. Cyril Grayson is earning him some playing time with this performance!

  412. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Free 2 yards because CD didn’t wrap up

  413. Howard Cosell Says:

    Offense always start the season ahead of defense, but by the end of the season defense has caught up

  414. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Dang another conversion

  415. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Game is far from over. Keep playing.

  416. HC Grover Says:

    Grayson rambles around.

  417. Howard Cosell Says:

    If they’re not here whining then didn’t you get what you asked for?

  419. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 is on the outer edge and no factor.

  420. crazybucs_CL Says:

    what is funny… panters with two QB, found how to beat Toooooodddddd… D boy o boy

  421. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Vikings didn’t help us today. Bucs still looking at the 4th seed.

  422. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Better lucky than good!

  423. Wallace Warner Says:

    All the typical trolls and Brady haters disguising themselves as frustrated fans always disappear when the team is doing well. Naples, Swampbuc, Anthem, Guzman just to name a few.
    These people are pretending to be Bucs fan. They’re lifelong Brady haters and have come to JoeBucs to try to away public opinion much like a Rob Parker. Fools cut from the same cloth. Pay no attention.

  425. cmurda Says:

    They have to go for it but the timeout is really costly for any hope the Panthers have. Francisco. I’ll take the 4th seed and just give it time. We all aren’t going to stay tied. Let’s take care of our business and we will be fine. What a great game by our defense today. Offense moved the ball. Would like to see some of those FG’s be TD’s but overall a very solid bounceback effort by the whole team including special teams actually. Happy about this.

  426. crazybucs_CL Says:

    @”…..Bucs still looking at the 4th seed….”
    they don’t deserve any better…. can’t u see !!!!

    Ronald Jones ain’t the guy.

  429. crazybucs_CL Says:

    as I said… ^^^^

  430. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Bad offensive possession. Need a healthy evans back.

  431. cmurda Says:

    It would be nice to see our O Line get after it a little bit to close out games. They look like they are going through the motions right now which is why that pass was batted down to a wide open AB

  432. crazybucs_CL Says:

    …and Panters are not done….yet!!!

  433. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Tyler Johnson, Scotty Miller, none of these guys even have a catch today. Awful!!!!!

  434. Alex Says:

    Wa this the best punter available?

  435. JC Bigornia Says:

    Barrett too!?!? How the hell does one team have so many damn injuries.

    Paquito Guzmán channels his frustration and that’s ok. No one cares

  446. crazybucs_CL Says:

    FG, FG and again FG…… at least we can say Great job Ryan…

  447. JimmyJack Says:

    We maybe 1-1 but this defense hasent given up a TD in the last 2 games. Amazingly, they have done this with several key players missing.

    Rooting bigtime that this D can finish this.

  448. cmurda Says:

    Nice day at the office for Succop. I wish they would stop talking about Tom retiring on the telecast. Don’t get me depressed after a nice win
