Saints 9, Buccaneers 0

December 19th, 2021

The unthinkable is now reality.

The Bucs just imploded and lost to the battered and depleted slimy Saints. And now the Bucs (10-4) will need a Christmas miracle to gain the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, as they sit a full game behind the Packers with just three games to play.

And yeah, the Packers also own the conference tiebreaker on the Bucs.

What makes things even more ominous, there’s a great chance the Bucs could face the Saints (7-7) in the playoffs in four weeks.

Hats off to the Bucs defense for suffocating nearly everything the Saints did tonight. Joe Tryon-Shoyinka made an impact rushing inside and outside. Lavonte David had a bounceback game. Alvin Kamara was a non-factor and the secondary played well.

On offense, it’s way too easy to blame in-game injuries to Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. The offensive line showed cracks. Some bizarre short-yardage playcalls didn’t help. And Tom Brady looked average — throwing to receiving depth that was less than average.

Special teams? Ryan Succop missed his fourth field goal of the season (he missed three last year) and Jaelon Darden returns punts and kicks like the bad Dexter Jackson, which is no compliment whatsoever.

This one was a soul-crusher.

    Why does it always have to be this team on prime time. Should have mopped the floor with him. Also I am so glad to see that the number one HC candidate adjusted amazingly.

  2. Jimbob Says:

    That was a rough one

  3. bucfanforever Says:

    Bring Brown Back

  4. Walter Says:

    The Saints were head hunting for sure

  5. BradyBucs Says:


  6. EA Says:

    Joe why is Darden on this team ??? do they have a logical explanation ?

  7. SOEbuc Says:

    Not what I expected. Don’t bet against the GOAT, but don’t bet against the Saints vs Bucs.

  8. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Forget about the top seed. That’s over and done with. I hope someone in the media tells them do you think the saints have a mental edge on you ah this point?

  9. Oxycodoms Says:

    Leftwich and jags perfect fit

  10. Coburn Says:

    Sucks that guys are outz but even the worst offenses in the league with no stars still manage to score some points every week. No excuse for that

  11. TheBucsAnthem Says:


  12. Mike C Says:

    Wow…… just wow, I mean missing AB,CG,ME,LF is going to hurt….. but a zero?

  13. cmurda Says:

    Forget the #1 seed. Just win next week and win the division. The offense shouldn’t even leave the building for a week. This looked like a team playing their first game together on offense.

  14. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The Bucs deserve a Wildcard spot after the burning pile of dog poo they laid tonight

  15. ModHairKen Says:

    It’s over. One game. Everyone played poorly on the same night. Next game.

  16. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    I feel like I was sold a bill of goods on Jaelon Darden. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but I don’t see the value at all on the field.

  17. Francisco Guzman Says:

    I think when it’s all said and done the bucs will fall to a 4th seed.

  18. TJ Says:

    Better check yo sheet!!

  19. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The Bucs never showed show up since half time from the Bills game last week

  20. ModHairKen Says:

    EA, agree. Darden is pathetic.

  21. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    3 COUNT EM, 3 points in the last 6 quarters of regulation!!!! I’m very concerned about this team against any kind of decent defense. If we don’t have Evan’s, Godwin and Fournette it don’t matter if we get Brown back…defenses will roll coverage to Brown and smother our other lesser talent.

  22. Buc Neckid Says:

    Jaelon Darden is a BUST!!!

  23. King C Says:

    This game was a good reminder for the fans who complain nonstop when the Bucs are winning.

  24. JohnBuc06 Says:

    I actually want the Saints in the playoffs … ultimate payback!!!

  25. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Once again

    This is why Byron Suckwich is not HC material

    crappy un-imaginative play caller

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    I can’t remember a Bucs game that I screamed so much at the TV.

    This one takes the cake.

    Extreme anger directed at Brady AND the refs.

    I’m calm now…but oh boy.

  27. PT in NYC Says:

    With Evans, Godwin, Fournette, and Brown all out, the passing and running game stagnated.

  28. SaintsOwnBucs!! Says:

    Saints broke the BradyBucs tonight!!

  29. SOEbuc Says:

    Mike, Chris, and Lenny. I’m balling my eyes out!!!!

    4th and 1 with Vaughn instead of ROJO!!!!!!!! You can take Leftwich right now Jacksonville.

  30. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Most embarrassing loss for Brady as a Buc.

    I know some key guys went down but you couldn’t get 9 points? Some awful throws but also some awful receiving. Even Gronk missed a few. Darden needs to pack his bags. Any OJ Howard stans left? This was his game to come in and make a case for himself with Brate playing awful and with Evans and Godwin out. He can pack his bags too.

    Hats off to the defense. Hopefully the Bucs are angry come this time next week for the Kitties.

    Go Bucs!

  31. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Putrid. This felt like the late 90s.

  32. Bucamania Says:

    Thought these days were behind the Bucs. Bullied and beaten at home. Barely a whimper.

  33. BucsFan81 Says:

    Haha if the saints make the playoffs and we have to face them it’s over. This team really looks like it could be one and done come playoff time.

  34. Bucs Orlando Says:

    Bruce Arians sort of looked dejected but more so looked… sick?

    His was strange looking and he was walking after the game like an old man. Something wasn’t right.

  35. Justme Says:

    When a team loses to the same team over and over again, especially when the team that whipping their behinds has inferior players, the only real explanation is:

    The winning team has better coaches. Peyton and his team consistently and relentlessly outcoach the Bucs.

    If I were the Bucs, I’d be setting a goal right now to beat the Saints 2x next year. I would be setting this goal as a priority above all else – they can lose every other game, going 2-15. It would be a winning season if they beat the saints 2x next year. That should be the only goal. Until they get that monkey off their backs, this team will never have their destiny in their own hands.

  36. Steven007 Says:

    Apparently unthinkable only for you Joe. Someone on the game thread mentioned that every time you insist we’re going to blow a team out, we lose. Maybe let that inform your predictions moving forward?

  37. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Trash…absolute trash

    The bucs got beat by a team that didn’t have their HC and two starting tackles and a backup Qb again…….SO PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Phx Bucs Fan Says:

    Well Fudge

  39. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I was excited about Darden. He’s Dexter Jackson V2

  40. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Cracks? The O line got their azz whipped. Dropped passes everywhere. Even Gronk dropped several.

  41. firethecannons Says:

    get rid of Darden–he is awful throughout this game, where was Perriman?

  42. RB42 Says:

    Why was JV in when rojo was rolling?

  43. gp Says:

    I’m thinking payments to the refs should count against the paying teams cap!

  44. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Darden and Vaughn. Ug. So bad.

  45. Steven007 Says:

    Mod Ken, the defense played lights out tonight. The offense was pathetic, particularly the offensive line.

  46. LVMYBUCS Says:

    This Byron’s fault he can’t adjust that’s why he is not a head coach

  47. Red86 Says:

    48 passes

    21 runs

    Wonder what the Saints d line going to play? The run or go after Tom Brady and ignore short routes?

  48. BitcoinTom Says:

    Now I want the media to disrespect them call them average and weak pretenders so they will have the same fire like last year. But I’m still happy that my bucs is 10-4. Can’t complain with 10 years of disappointment. I guess I’m just use to it. We are spoiled.

  49. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I truly do hope the BUCS lose the rest of their games just barely make the playoffs as a wildcard

    or not make the playoffs at all

    Playoff teams DON’T GET SHUT OUT AT home this late in the season

    PURE TRASH!!!!!!!

  50. SOEbuc Says:

    Jensen has been snapping low for two weeks straight now. He better get a talking to.

  51. orlbucfan Says:

    Brady was sacked 4 times, and threw 2 pics. He is the reason the team lost. He’s a fossil and played like it tonight. I know they will win the division, but nope, no SB.

  52. firethecannons Says:

    Bruce Arians looks sedated–no reaction no nothing–what is he doing? why Leftwich was making bizarre 3rd and 4th down calls–bad game –playcalling was awful

  53. NPRSageBoy Says:

    Chokers choke, its that simple

  54. Coburn Says:

    A couple questions

    Does Brady’s shoulder injury from last week (yes it was reported, look it up) have any effect here?

    Did we even run many two tight end formations after we lost Evans and Godwin?

  55. dmatt Says:

    Will someone please tell why oh Howard is still on the teAm. He is useless. One would think with all the starting receivers out he would step up but heck he can’t even hold a block. JDarden is clueless n SMiller, TJohnson, n JVaughn had a chance as fill ins to prove themselves but they don’t get much play time for a reason. Our defense played lights out. Gronk was off, Brady was off n so was the offense. Saints have our number.

  56. LVMYBUCS Says:

    We have players that really look like they belong on the street.

  57. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Better root for the sea chickens against the rams .

  58. Will Says:

    WTF do we continue to throw deep on 3rd and short? Move the chains and live to play another down.
    Joe maybe you’ll learn that this team doesn’t beat teams that are ripe for the taken. Watching an interview of Cam Jordan on our home field that should piss this team off. Can’t get pass the Saints in the regular season.
    Offense looked pathetic the entire game but BL I don’t understand why when Rojo started getting momentum you sit him for SORRY A$$ Vaughn.

  59. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Todd Bowles is AMAZING coach

    the defense is the only reason the score didn’t look worse than it is

    Byron Leftsuck sucks sooooooooooooooooooooooo bad

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    4th and 1…..give it to Vaughn…160 pounds dripping wet…..WTF?

  61. cmurda Says:

    Jaelon is definitely a bust. He sucks…..Badly. We got our butts kicked everywhere and several comments are about how bad Darden is. That’s how much he sucks. In fact, he sucks so much that Dyson is trying to get him to come on board as a spokesman since only he rivals the Dyson in sucking per square foot.

  62. DBS Says:

    No . Truth is Defense looked good and kept us in the frigging game. They had a few ruff times but 9 points? And played almost the entire game.

  63. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Scam Newton might have a rebirth next week. I believe he’s undefeated against brady.

  64. Steven007 Says:

    The glass half full part is if we were told we were going to be 10 and 4 after 14 games, most of us would happily take that. Glass half empty is losing in such an ugly fashion. But we had a few of those last year too. Need to clean things up and move forward. And oh by the way, welcome back Antonio…

  65. TheBucsAnthem Says:





  66. FrankPillow Says:

    Out coached. Out muscled. Out played. What else is new against these guys? I’m glad Bruce can get back to riding around in his cart and focusing on the perfect eggnog.

  67. LVMYBUCS Says:

    He coach if ur QB is getting pressured all night why not just run run and short passes u has been never was a good QB ur self idiot

  68. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    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.

  69. Buc4evr Says:

    Garbage play calling. They knew what the Saints were going to do and never did anything different to adjust for their defense. Brady was horrible. This team is not going far in the post season.

  70. ModHairKen Says:

    Steven007, you’re right. I was so focused on the stench of the Offense. The Defense played well. Adams dropping the pick was unfortunate. The run Defense was a little loose but they did stop them on 3rd.

  71. orlbucfan Says:

    Brady will not have his security blankets with CG14 and Fournette out next week. So what will fossil 12 do?

  72. Bucamania Says:

    Bucs offense wasn’t ready for a street fight.

  73. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Our Punter really sucks

    Get rid of the punt returner

  74. Colonel Angus Says:

    Swept by Saints, the omens are good.

  75. Buc1987 Says:

    I’m calm now….Jack Daniels and all.

  76. Buczilla Says:

    Everyone on offense looked like the were 44 today. Great job by the defense after a shaky start, but this loss is going to hurt for awhile.

  77. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Throwing deep on third and short in field goal range is lunacy.

  78. BitcoinTom Says:

    Saints swept us- Superbowl bound confirmed hahahahahaha

  79. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    The bucs stopped playing football and didn’t show up since the Second half of the Bills game

    They did the same thing tonight

  80. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Why are the cowboys seeded second? I thought we had the tiebreaker against them? Didn’t we beat them?

  81. Swampbuc Says:

    I love it when Tom has a wide open guy on 3rd and two and throws it 15 yards over a covered receiver’s head who is 25 yards downfield. Just love it.

    Lenny, Brate, Gronk, to name a few.

    I was yelling at the TV “Just pretend you’re with the Patriots and it’s 2019!” Maybe he did and that’s wy he turned into such a bitch at the end.

    Nice job OL. Burn your press clippings and go to the coal cellar, you shall be roundly flogged.

    Nice game plan, Boron. Ten passes to open, none of which did spit. You’re head coaching prospect just took a magor 180.

    Way to have your team prepared BA. Do you think you can even win another game? This is 6 consecutive quarters of regular season football and your precious No Riskit No Biskit offense has produced………………..3 points……….other than the lucj job to Perriman who has COVID.

    The Bucs could delay a one car funeral by driving into the open grave.


  82. Leighroy Says:

    Darden as the 2nd coming as Dexter Jackson, Joe somehow reading texts to my HS buddies tonight?!

  83. Doug Says:

    Bruce Arians slows this team down; Leftwich needs to go to Jacksonville

  84. Steven007 Says:

    Colonel Angus, you may be on to something.

  85. BitcoinTom Says:

    Brady sucked. Oline sucked. Gronk looks old. No Godwin Evans Fournette, back up sucked. Now we count them off. So they will turn to higher gear.

  86. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Cowboys are listed as the second seed right. How is that possible? We beat them.

  87. Buc1987 Says:

    NashvilleBuc….lots of lunacy tonight!

    Including me.

  88. BitcoinTom Says:

    Francisco Guzman conference tiebreaker

  89. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    TOM BRADY ALWAYS: checks the ball down

    only throws below 10 yards like 95% of the time (check down)

    TOM BRADY has no touch of deep balls or passes

    ………….THIS OFFENSE IS TOO predictable

    ………thank you Byron Suckwich for calling such a crappy offense

  90. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I would give my right arm to have a better offensive coach, even last year I never like this Leftwitch he just sucks.

  91. Francisco Guzman Says:

    What you mean conference tiebreaker? Doesn’t head to head mean more?

  92. gp Says:

    How many drives killed by PI non calls?

  93. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Hostage situation, not to be morose…. Only explanation

  94. David Says:

    That was disgusting.
    The O line get their ass handed to them. Mostly Cappa and Jensen.
    No receivers could get more than a yard of separation.
    Brady was too antsy due to the pressure and rushed some throws

    The defense did well. They gave up a couple long passes but that was it.

    Just hope those injuries are all minor.

  95. David Says:


    Get a grip dude, the refs had absolutely nothing to do with this game. The Bucs offense got their ass handed to them

  96. Tony Says:

    Orlbucfan u are a tool all u can do is blame Brady! Did Brady have his best game no,is it all his fault they lost no,is this the end of there season no!Brady has had a very good year and so has the team but they can’t be perfect or win every game u know the other team gets paid also! All I ever see u do is blame Brady I think u have secret man crush on him lol,anyway u are a broken record get a new song u win as a team and lose as a team period!

  97. C2asante Says:

    Wanna know the definition of privilege? The Bucs offense plays well and the commentary is it’s all Brady just carrying Coach Leftwich who really is just a figure head. The offense plays poorly and suddenly it’s a negative reflection of Coach Leftwich. Honestly he can’t win with some of you because it’s really not about football

  98. MadMax Says:

    No 1 seed wont matter….at this rate we wont make it past a playoff….even before our guys started dropping they were handling us. Won too many in a row and people were hungover from it.

  99. Swampbuc Says:

    Anthem — if y ou’re going to bas the team do it properly. The reason the Bucs lost is quite correlated to Brady shunning the sure first down throw on thrid down and going home run to the idiot Darden and a way too covered Gronk, and missing them by miles. Although his interception was nicely thrown downfield, perfect to Gardner-Johnson .

    If he just threw checkdowns tonight, Bucs win.

  100. Francisco Guzman Says:

    I wanna know why the cowgirls are ahead of us. Somebody explained that to me. We beat them head to head.

  101. JimmyJack Says:

    Zero points. Brady missed every big play and he gagged up a fumble in a defining moment. The OL got their asses handed to them. This team didnt give a rats ass that the Saints own us and they played like it.

  102. Pewter Power Says:

    Not sure why it was unthinkable for them to lose, it’s not like BA has a track record for playing well against the saints. If you are surprised the Bucs lost then your not paying attention. On a more positive note the Bucs don’t need the number 1 seed and a first round bye. What they need is to simply play well. Home or away this is one of the best rosters in the nfl but injuries are the story of the season

  103. Mtbucsfan Says:

    Hell would of been ahead to forfeit and blame covid. At least all our good players wouldn’t of got hurt. I’m sick and tired of the Saints. Dirty bastards with low hits.

  104. LVMYBUCS Says:


  105. Buc1987 Says:

    Tony correct…Orlbucfan is a total tool.

  106. Izod Says:

    One of the best weapons on this team is Ronald Jones. CONSISTENTLY one of the best…. so what happens every time RoJO makes an explosive play? He gets taken out. Replaced by the likes of Vaughn???? Are you MF’ing Kidding Me?

    How hard is it to put RoJo and Fournette on the field at once? Who in the NFL could possibly stop that, given all the varied combinations of plays you could devise there.

    No creativity, only predictability from this joke of a coaching staff.

  107. ElioT Says:

    Bryon Leftwich does the least with the most out of any OC in the league.

    Take one look at this du***** and tell me he is capable of out coaching anyone but Arians.

  108. MadMax Says:

    Learned something though, the Darden and keyshawn vaughn experiment is over!!!! Need that Bama RB!!

  109. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    To the Leftwich haters… He did adjust. I said at halftime if Lenny gets hurt it’s over. We would have won this game running Fournette and throwing that shirt pass to him all night. When Lenny went down we were basically in practice mode with guys who get no reps and have very little experience. RoJo too one dimensional to be great. Injuries sounds like excuses but to lose those three guys that quickly just totally crippled us. On to next week.

  110. orlbucfan Says:

    I don’t give a fast flying f about seeding. I just want Bucs to win the #### division. Brady sure helped the not-win tonight.

  111. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team pissed away their seeding. If the cowboys are indeed the second seed they’re not losing another game . Their schedule is cupcake. Looks like the bucs might have earned themselves a trip to Dallas if they stay the 3rd seed. You wanna avoid the rams if you’re the Bucs.

  112. David Says:

    And of course the most football ignorant are going to blame Leftwich or Brady etc.
    Get a clue people. This is on BA, BL, Brady, the O line, and the receivers, not one person. The Saints played exactly how they always play on defense.
    After 5 games, the players and the coaches still can’t figure them out

    The O line get their ass handed to them.
    Brady got ansy and was looking to get rid of it too quick.
    Some of the playcalling wasn’t great.
    No receivers, starters or back ups , were getting any separation.

    It was an offensive team effort.

  113. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Orlbucfan they’re gonna win the division.

  114. Craig Says:

    Two questions:

    Who slipped a Mickey into Gronks pre-game drink, he was so awful it shook Brady up badly.

    Is it time to activate Task? Brady looked like he has caught dementia. It was a rough thing to watch, in some ways worse than you know who.

  115. Steven007 Says:

    Izod, I agree that taking Jones out simply made no sense. By a measure he was the best thing we had going on offense today.

  116. Bird Says:

    1987 and tony

    Orlbucfan is a chick too. At least i think so. She is straight garbage. She hates brady. Says brady sucks. 😂

    What a smelly 🐟 B

  117. Buc1987 Says:

    Francisco Guzman Says:

    “Orlbucfan they’re gonna win the division.”

    Because of Tom Brady

  118. Will Says:

    This was a game for Rojo. Other than running out of bounds early in the game after a catch he looked good but still BL takes him off the field for Vaughn. Smh he’s terrible. Darden is terrible trips over his own feet ALL THE TIME, OJ has always been terrible and continues to prove it. Gronk had a rough game but to me this still all goes back to TERRIBLE play calling especially 3rd and short situations. BL you do know it’s OK to just get the 1st down. I’m more pissed about how we lost versus the lost itself. From the opening 10throws on offense we all should’ve know the game plan SUCKED. It was their offense missing people not their defense. When Brady struggles run the ball get him in the hurry up but don’t just drop back and run vanilla plays all game. Smh

  119. LVMYBUCS Says:

    You don’t let the same team beat u over and over and over, at some point as a head coach u figure out what need to be done. HE BYRON U IDIOT CALL SHAWN PAYTON FOR ADVICE. DAMN U STUPID, AND U WONDER WHY U DIDNT GET ANY INTERVIEWS FOR HEAD COACH LAST SEASON. ITS BECAUSE U SUCK AND IF IT WASNT FOR BRADY U WOULD SUCK EVEN MORE.

  120. PhillyBuc Says:

    Darden, Vaughan, Johnson, OJ and Miller failed to step up. Hope our starters are not out too many games or else we’re playing for wildcard. Want an offensive embarrassment.

  121. Sparky Says:

    The Cowboys are ahead of us because the first tie breaker for seeding is conference record. We are 6-4 and they are 8-1 in the NFC

  122. TJ Says:

    Winston 4-1 vs your goat. Check dem sheets!

  123. gp Says:

    December 19th, 2021 at 11:32 pm


    Get a grip dude, the refs had absolutely nothing to do with this game. The Bucs offense got their ass handed to them
    I counted two at a minimum and four probable

    Yes, Saints defense played well and our offense was anemic but bad calls made bad into much worse.
    Hard enough to beat a determined team but when the refs pick sides there’s no chance

  124. Joe Foley Says:

    My opinion is this
    Football is all about money.
    For none bettors it is entertainment
    For gamblers it’s gambling.
    Play the lotto, waste on slots, bottom line is don’t bet on anothers game, you can’t win.
    Everything is fixed.
    Be a sucker an bet, play lotto, throw you money out your window, same result. You lose your money
    Trust my opinion.
    Been doing all this for 40 yesrs.
    Don’t be coned.
    Everyone is a thief!
    Everyone wants your money and don’t care about you.
    Love family not money an don’t be sucked in believein you. Can better yourself.
    Your enriching con artists that can’t even change a flat tire

  125. Coburn Says:

    Tom definitely has not hit those deep balls like he did last year. Was hoping with Miller in we might see one, but didn’t have the time really. He’s the one guy Brady was always able to hit consistently deep

  126. Bush's Coke Spoon Says:

    0-2 vs the Saints = Superbowl

    LFG offensive line!!!

  127. captivajim Says:

    hopefully leftwich will take Darden with him to Jags—sooner the better …..

  128. steele Says:

    This was a big red letter circled-on-calendar payback game that this team should have prepared like hell for. If you just can’t beat a team when (supposedly) fired up, the opposing team is simply better coached and better physically. The problem would not be solved even if no one was injured. It’s about coaching, play calling and adjustments.

  129. Listnfrmafar Says:

    The reason why Dallas is second seed is becuase Bucs lost more games in the NFC conference, that trumps the tiebreaker

  130. captivajim Says:

    may be time to trask some snaps–he’s a mobile guy with young legs..without pocket protection TB12 is not effective-never has been; and I’m not too sure he’ll play in’22???

  131. Annapope1 Says:

    The injuries were devastating to watch. I hope everyone is OK. The hits seemed brutal. Also,what has happened to Gronk? Nevermind not scoring, he has not been able to catch. I hope he’s alright from his injuries, too.

  132. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Well they beat us twice the year we moved to the South and what happened? They beat us twice last year and what did we do? The Saints simply have our number in the regular season. We beat 2 pretty good defenses before this because the offense did its job and defense didn’t. Now the defense finally put a crown on its head and the offense lays an egg. Like I said before no complimentary football. Forget this Gagne next one up.

    Not to take away from the injuries. But the Bucs are so predictable why not go to hurry up at times and why is Gronk never split out wide with Evans and Godwin. Put one of them in motion and let the other two. Rib off each other. Do you think a D. Back is going to switch and take Gronk. Now you force defense to make a quicker choice. Gronk on the move or being rubbed off is h harder to control. Plus Gronk can come on motion an block for a quick screen or pitch out to the back. Please quit being so methodical. By the way. What’s up with pass on every down to start. You know they tee off on Brady. And just saying

    *** Bucs are still a great team.. at full strength…the OC is garbage…and the HC is just average. The team is filled with talent and should make another SB run…….but tge teams biggest problems besides injuries is…….once we won the SB…our heads got too big…and we think we’re always gonna gonna win just because we won b4. We are excellent at bravado…but lacking at execution

    Hamstring issues have haunted Evans since he’s been here. Same with Godwin, he gets injured every year due to his style of play. I think if we get one of those three back next week, along with AB, we’ll be fine but we’ll need those guys healthy for a playoff push. Will be interesting to see if we’re not in the top two spots for a bye, if we shut a few guys down the last week or two to get healthy.

    Evan’s is soft, he was one in done. He saw what happened to Godwin and turtled AGAIN! I bet he definitely plays against Carolina a team that doesn’t beat the crap out of him because we all know he needs to get his 1000 yds. When Godwin went down, his job as a leader is to say to the team F these guys, get me the ball.

    Not ur year Shady Brady lol

  138. MJ Says:

    Bucs are done. Can’t play awesome one week and not show up to play the next week. Forget the division. Maybe they will win 1 playoff game and thats it. No repeat super bowl this year! Disgusted!

    The play calling was bad for sure. On third and one why throw the ball deep instead of trying to get a first down?
    But our vaunted O-line got their butt kicked. Their D-line always overpower us. The O – line needs to show some fight. Get mad and even get some penalties if you need to.
