Damien Woody: Saints Don’t Fear The Bucs

June 13th, 2022

BSPNer has slimy Saints warning.

A lot of folks believe the Bucs will stomp up and down on the NFC South this year.

Former NFL offensive lineman Damien Woody says, hold my beer.

In a recent edition of “Stay in Bed,” seen weekdays on BSPN, Woody said until the Bucs can demonstrate they can take down the bully, they best be treading carefully around the bully, aka the Slimy Saints. Talk that the Bucs will dominate the division is premature, Woody believes.

“Look, Tom [Brady] is my guy,” Woody said. “But are we just not going to talk about the Saints in this whole equation? We are talking about a team over the last two years that is 4-0 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 4-0. Scoring 64 points.

“Look at the moves they have made this offseason, OK? … You think the New Orleans Saints are scared of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? The Saints are in it to win it. So as much as we are talking about Tom and Tampa, you better be watching out for the New Orleans Saints.”

Well, the Saints are 4-1 against the Bucs the past two years but Joe gets what Woody is suggesting.

At the very least, the Bucs must figure out a way to win one game against the Saints. Joe isn’t sure if that means being much, much more physical on offense against the Saints or being more explosive.

This much is clear to Joe: Slimy Saints coach Dennis Allen and his defense have Brady and the Bucs’ number. No doubt about that. And that really p!sses Joe off to type that.

    They dominate both lines of scrimmage, esp our offensive.

  2. Casual Observer Says:

    They killed us with the continuous short-passing game most of the time. Our coaches refused to adjust. Maybe they will be different this year; unsure.

  3. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Surely they can figure the Saints out. There’s plenty of film to review on what not to do.

  4. geno711 Says:

    It’s fair to say that the Saints don’t fear the Bucs.

    However, there are more teams in the NFL than the Bucs and the Aint’s.

    The fact is that the Aint’s aint done much in the playoffs recently. Since 2010, the Aint’s have won a total of 5 playoff games.

    The Bucs have won 5 playoff games in the last 2 years including the Super Bowl. Love my Buc’s and their championship team. Aint’s are just an also ran at this point.

  5. Cobraboy Says:

    Why should they fear the Bucs?

    The Bucs have been the Saint’s b!t<h for years…

  6. Thisisouryear!! Says:

    Beej hit it. The Saints and the Rams have beat us physically the last two years. If we are more physical this year we will win it all again.

  7. Dooley Says:

    That’s fine, we aren’t trying to make a scary movie, we’re just trying to whip their asses and win the NFC South lol you can be brave and take this “L”. What they should fear, is all those years winning all those regular season games while we were in the basement and not winning a title

  8. Chris Tucker@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Woody makes a good point! The Saints have also improved, at least on Paper.
    But so have we, so these two games we play against them will be total, all out Wars.
    Both Aikeem Hicks and Goedeke are very physical players, not afraid of nothing or Nobody, and White catching passes coming out of the backfield are just what the doctor ordered against the Saints.

  9. Buc92’ Says:

    The last game was disgusting to watch , bounty gate never left New Orleans they clearly set out to injure key guys & they executed. We have to play smart & physical . Don’t have our guys in vulnerable positions with backs to defenders either


  10. KnoxvilleBuc Says:

    Beeej you are correct. If we want to beat the Saints we must win the line of scrimmage. Our o-line must step up their game for teams like the Saints and Rams.

  11. Bucsfanman Says:

    That’s why they play the games!

    Until we end this losing streak against them, it is what it is. That said, we have been the better team overall these past two seasons.

  12. BFFL Says:

    Losing Payton and Armstead will be tough for the Saints O to replace

  13. GOB Says:

    The saints can get home without blitzing. They can also cover extremely well. The secondary is better than last year. A split would be a win for the bucs. Problem with the saints is, they have a hard time beating teams not named the bucs. I suspect they’ll both go 4-0 against the Panthers and falcons.

    To beat them, they need to wear that front out. If that means 30 rushing attempts, so be it. Anything that’ll help stop the rushers from getting up field. One thing is clear. If they try the same approach, they’ll get the same result

    PS Joe, I think woody was referencing the regular season. It’s extremely hard to beat a team 3 times in the same season. Had Cook not coughed the ball up, that playoff game more than likely ends in a blowout.

  14. zzbucs Says:

    Wll, ask this Fat as* if he trades those 4 wins against his loss on the playoffs….
    He will take that as a heart beat….

  15. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Tell us something we don’t know.

  16. Pickgrin Says:

    F*** The Saints!

    Dirty ass team Dirty ass City

    Build up a large city BELOW sea level – smart – really smart….

  17. Wade Landry Says:

    Saints def. has been best in our div….let’s change that D.White and co.

  18. A Bucs Fan Says:

    Running the ball more will be the difference this year.

  19. SlyPirate Says:


    The Saints have so much talent on both sides of the ball. The big mystery is their head coach.

  20. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bucs need to end this Saints regular season domination this year.

  21. JB-BUCS06 Says:

    Could it be that the Saints know the Bucs playback, checks, and reads thx to Winston? As well as the physicality.

  22. Tampabaybucfsn Says:

    Run the ball

  23. Ed Says:

    Simple, stop giving up those short passing yards and play less zone and give Brady more time by running the ball. The running game of the Bucs has to get more attempts because the Saints don’t give Brady enough time to find guys downfield

  24. Joe Says:

    Could it be that the Saints know the Bucs playback, checks, and reads thx to Winston?

    Slimy Saints we’re b!tch-slapping the Bucs before Winston was their QB.

  25. Pewter Power Says:

    Until we can beat them convincingly like they’ve done to us I agree the saints have no reason to fear. Actually stomping twice a year is the reason why they are so arrogant

  26. Whit Says:

    Playoffs are where it counts and we’re 1-0. Enough said

  27. Tvan101 Says:

    There is zero guarantee that the new coach is anywhere close to the level that Sean Payton coached the Saints at for all those years.

  28. Buczilla Says:

    I still fondly remember our recent playoff win against the saints, but they have owned our butts in the regular season for far too long. I believe that we will at least split with them. Payton is gone and now that he is I can say that he’s easily a top five head coach whenever he comes back. We may be better on the offensive line with the dudes that we brought in to replace the departed starters. Shaq is a definite upgrade and who knows, maybe Goedeke can kick a$$ his first year like Ali did. Winston is not a good quarterback, but he has a few games every year where he is nearly unstoppable and the chances of him playing twice like that against us are slim and none.

  29. OBVIOUS Says:

    If I was the coach I’d go to war. Damn the penalties. Time to punch them in the mouth for a change! Until a coach grows the balls to be willing to die on that hill, nothing will change. We Have To Be THE Bully for a change. I wonder how the 2002 Bucs defense would handle the saints if they were being fouled like this every game? Think Sapp would continue to take that? Or is the writing ON THE WALL AND IT’S UNDERSTOOD? If you’re going to lose the game because you are literally getting fouled and cheated with a price on your head, do you go out like a beeotch or do you take it to them and make them your beeotch REGARDLESS win or lose. Personally, they would NEVER FOEGET ME and COULD EXPECT MORE OF THE SAME EVERY TIME I SEE THEM. In case there is ANY DOUBT, THAT’S EXACTLY what they have been doing to us for some years now AND getting away with it! Like I said, win or lose, I would make them BEG for it to be OVER! Screw them and their little dog, horse, and family members!
    Nothing is going to change unless we change it 💯!!!
    Grow Some! Put on your big boy panties Like Mike! He SURE got tired of that REAL QUICK!

    GO BUCS!

  30. GOB Says:

    Joe, I sincerely doubt it. If it is the case, then shame on the bucs. As you’re well aware, the raiders changed none of their checks in the superbowl against Tampa. The end result may have been the same, but it was comical at times.

    It doesn’t take a genius coaching staff to change some of the protection calls and audibles. Players change teams all the time. I think it’s more a product of familiarity, great coaching, and talent. I doubt the bucs current playbook has that much in common to the one Winston learned. Remember, Peyton is a belichick deciple, so he had a good idea about Brady’s tendencies. The bigger question is how much of a coaching drop off happens in NO, with Dennis Allen

  31. GOB Says:

    Folks, GOB doesn’t like the saints either, but they demand respect. The bounty stuff, and Sean Peyton’s complicity are inexcusable. I think he’s a DB, but Please stop with this slimy saints stuff. Wouldn’t it be much more fun to just beat their asses, and laugh at them after?

  32. don g Says:

    GOB Great speak Loved it

  33. Gundam Says:

    Not going to happen Coach Allen is very aggressive and guess what ? Saints also upgraded . That new front 7 is a juggernaut

  34. RustyRhinos Says:

    This should be what every meeting starts out with. Those simple words. Offense, Defense Special Teams, Coaches meetings should all start out with those simple words.

    Maybe it will build a burning passion to DOMINATE! Every play for 60 minutes game after game after game.
    Go!!! Bucs!!!

  35. BelleGladeBuc Says:

    Jameis Winston’s 6 complete games last year:

    38 – 3 win vs Packers
    7 – 27 loss vs Panthers
    28 – 13 win vs Patriots
    21 – 27 loss vs Giants
    33 – 22 win vs Washington
    13 – 10 win vs Seattle

    Put into context, Jameis Winston’s 6 games against 4 of the worst teams in the NFL is not that impressive.

    Winston had elite weapons while on the Bucs and a good defense and he always managed to lose in the end. TB12, Lenny and Gronk comes in with the same team and win a Super Bowl, something I feel confident saying that Winston would not have done with the exact same roster.

    Just look at the play Winston was injured on. Winston looked on to the WR running the skinny post outside the right sideline numbers pre snap.

    Winston never looked at another WR pre snap. Winston still stared him down when it was obvious that the Bucs had bracketed the post and it wasn’t open.

    Winston failed to read the defense and hit #88 running the crossing pattern to the left sidelines that was wide open. Winston failed to properly work the pocket. QB’s are taught to work the pocket up and towards where the pressure came from, or run away from the pressure.

    Winston, a 7 year NFL QB veteran did none of those things, instead doing the exact opposite of those QB fundamentals which resulted in his injury.

    Now he’s coming off a major knee injury to 2 stabilizing knee joint ligaments and trust me, no NFL defensive coordinator is losing sleep over Jameis Winston QBing the Saints.

    I fully respect that the Saints are massively talented both defensively and offensively, but until Winston shows me that he can lead his team to a winning record for 1 complete season, something he’s never done, I look at the data on Winston and say Winston is nothing to be scared off.
