Buccaneers-Titans, Open Thread

August 20th, 2022

It’s another week of glorious Buccaneers football!

Preseason Week 2 is here with the Bucs in Tennessee. Not a lot of starters on the field but plenty of starting jobs and roster spots are up for grabs.

Comment all game long below, and stick with Joe all night for plenty out of this game.

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

  2. Timbo Slice Says:

    Where’s my invite, Dewey??

  3. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Anyone get hurt coming out of the locker room?

  4. JimmyJack Says:

    I wonder if Tom Brady is watching?

  5. Kentucky Buc Says:

    If the beer is cold we will win the gold- Chris Mullen Dream Team

  6. tbbucs3 Says:

    The last thing Tom Brady is doing is watching Bucs Titans pre season football

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    Fournette is playing? I’m shocked we’re seeing any starters.

  8. tbbucs3 Says:

    Scotty Miller and Darden are simply too small

  9. shak_bucs Says:

    Excellent kick, terrible tackling!

  10. HC Grover Says:

    Line fine…Gabbert UGH so far

  11. George Says:

    Miller won’t be on the final roster

  12. shak_bucs Says:

    Come on Camarda with the leg! Hopefully ST tackling will be better this season. S/N: people who hate on Stuard should know he was top 3 in ST tackles IIRC, he’s good whether you see it or not.

  13. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 at it again.

  14. shak_bucs Says:


  15. JimmyJack Says:

    Passrush has looked very good in the preseason with Nelson and now Tryon.

  16. Bucs Fan South Tampa Says:

    I thought TB12 was doing Masked Singer! You go Tom….

  17. Rod Munch Says:


    A first down run up the middle!

  18. Rod Munch Says:

    Why is Fournette playing? I men I have a ton of confidence in White, but not reason to tempt fate.

  19. JimmyJack Says:

    That 4th down is where ya gotta respect our strong run defense. Big part of that sack is knowing there is no way in hell they run the ball

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Gabbert looking like Mike Glennon, throwing for a 2 yard gain on 3rd and 4. But it helps his competition percentage and that’s what matters.

  21. HC Grover Says:

    Gavvert can get a job at western union. Telegraph operator.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    completion… stupid english.

  23. NCBucfan Says:

    Put in Trask!! Put in Trask!! Put in Trask!!! Put in Trask!!

  24. NCBucfan Says:

    Gabbert sucks!! Gabbert!!! Gabbert sucks!!!

  25. Duke813 Says:

    Go Bucs

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    Before people get too excited, Willis is holding the ball forever, which is common for rookies. Against a QB with experience, they’d just throw it away or make faster reads and the defense isn’t getting there. Just being realistic.

  27. SB~LV Says:

    Tough grader’s
    It’s the details not the big picture
    In preseason

  28. Coburn Says:

    Still looks like JTS outside rush is stalled he just kinda gets stood up. Needs to develop more inside moves and shedding blocks

  29. Rod Munch Says:


  30. shak_bucs Says:

    Stop holding it so long Trask!!!

  31. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Get rid of the ball!!

  32. Rod Munch Says:

    …and speaking of holding the ball way too long…

  33. HC Grover Says:

    A patented Buc 1st sown play. Up the gut. Then a nice Gabbert sack and another fine run up the gut. Slow Startitis.

  34. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We have run the ball on 1st down on every play……wasted down….

  35. Rod Munch Says:


  36. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Punt coverage sucks…

  37. unbelievable Says:

    I said this days ago, but Wells and Leverett look awful. Hainsey not much better.

    Preseason, I know…

    But Brady ain’t coming back to okay behind this o-line lol

  38. unbelievable Says:


  39. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Brady seeing this offensive line perform or not perform will be his deciding factor if he’s ever going to come back or not

  40. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Avg….56 yards on 2 punts

  41. unbelievable Says:

    At least our D-line is getting some push!

    Anyone know if Tennessee has their starters playing on offensive line tonight?

  42. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Punt God on the board…Bucs pick Jake ( from State Farm ?) from UGA? I follow the Bulldogs and he didn’t stand out whatsoever. A bit of a head/berry scratcher.

  43. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Do they just automatically give the Referee job to the zebra with the biggest guns?


  44. Rod Munch Says:

    unbelievable – Cappa looked like complete trash in the preseason of year 2, didn’t look at all like he could play in the NFL. He looked too weak and too slow. Then, magically, come opening day he was completely solid.

    Licht has quite the knack for finding offensive lineman, so I wouldn’t take too much from what we’re seeing.

  45. JimmyJack Says:

    I was excited to see how much Britt improved from last year. Havent seen him much but it looks like #53 is outplaying him.

  46. David Says:


    I really am rooting for this kid but my God, he has absolutely no idea how to move in a pocket or feel pressure. There’s no internal clock telling him to move and get the ball out. And he’s a pocket passer!!!!

  47. NCBucfan Says:

    The o line is actually not looking bad. QBs are not getting rid of the ball! And remember, our top 4 receivers aren’t playing

  48. Rod Munch Says:

    Winny Testaverde – His stats were pretty good, like a 47+ yard average, and runs a 4.4 – I hope that means they run some fakes with him, at least early in the season, just to keep teams off balance.

    But I agree, I have no idea why they picked him there, I didn’t see anyone ranking him that high.

  49. Mat Martin Says:

    Is that #93 Carl Nassib who was giving the Titans RT the business?

    He’s not looking too shabby considering he was supposedly rusty in his first training sessions.

  50. HC Grover Says:

    How did they ever sniff out that run up the gut.

  51. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Byron “2nd & 9” Leftwich ladies and gentlemen.


  52. Rod Munch Says:


  53. HC Grover Says:

    Otten saves a TD

  54. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Fire Keith Armstrong.

  55. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Punt coverage still sucks…….Rudolph was hit beyond 5 yards…

  56. Rod Munch Says:

    This is reminding me of the Mike Shula days.

  57. shak_bucs Says:

    Excellent kicks each time, TRASH TACKLING!

  58. Jmarkbuc Says:

    On the bright side, the special teams seems to blow too.

  59. HC Grover Says:

    Will the Bucs get a 1st down jn the 1st qtr.

  60. BucU Says:

    What an absolute garbage display from this offense tonight. It’s embarrassing. WAKE UP!

  61. OrlandoBucFan Says:

    Why is it that the other team always seems to have a better punt and kick returner? Am I missing something?

  62. Rod Munch Says:

    Camarda is getting good distance, but is outkicking his coverage a bit, probably needs a little more hangtime. But I’ll take 56 yards per punt if they can tackle.

  63. geno711 Says:

    Pretty Simple, you outkick the punt team coverage, there are bigger returns.

    48 yards and high is better than 55 or 60 yards. THIS IS A PROBLEM.

  64. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 strikes again.

  65. Coburn Says:

    Everyone warned us Armstrong was trash when he came from falcons. He’s done nothing to give us any reason to think otherwise

  66. Will Says:

    Can we fire the ST coach yet?

  67. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 jumps the gun.

  68. Ash Says:

    Wasn’t the draft before last just for special teams is it coaching that punt coverage looks horrible still.

  69. Posey99 Says:

    This sucks 2 hours away from tampa and they turn the game off and switch to 49ers and the Vikings

  70. Rod Munch Says:

    Still, it’s a good sign he has a leg, now it’s just working on direction and hang time. BTW, last week he did a good job directionally sending a guy right to the sideline and out of bounds on like a 48 yard punt, so he can do it. They might be telling him tonight just to rip it as far as he can, they do try different stuff in preseason, sometimes.

  71. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Averaging 56 yards on 3 punts….but they are averaging 26 yards per return….

    Defense looking decent…….offense stymied by 1st down predictable runs….

    How about a play action on 1st….Byron

  72. CrackWise Says:

    Cant complain, Trask took a good sack, field position has been bad. Play calling has been suspect.

    D looks the part

  73. shak_bucs Says:

    JTS is everywhere, pushed his guy into Willis there!

  74. Rod Munch Says:

    This is a sloppy game.

  75. IrishTony Says:

    How’s Trask looking? 😊 I’d wager to bet Griffin could at least move the ball a little. Jesus

  76. IrishTony Says:

    How’s Trask looking? I’d wager to bet Griffin could at least move the ball a little. Jesus

  77. Rod Munch Says:


    Leftwich doesn’t run up the gut on 1st down, and now it’s 2nd and 10, instead of 2nd and 9, and that completely changes the game.

  78. Rod Munch Says:


    That’s more like it, first down run up the middle for -2.

  79. HC Grover Says:

    Nice fumble

  80. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Too many runs up the middle on first down.

  81. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That was PI on Darden

  82. Anonymous Says:

    Watching goedeke and he looks good

  83. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Bucs looking like the old Todd Bowles’ Jets….

  84. SOEbuc Says:

    JTS and Shaq are gonna be sick!

  85. JimmyJack Says:

    Irish Trask just drove us into FG range. Lay off the sauce

  86. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice 3rd down pass by Trask – good velocity, Darden can’t hang on, looked like PI, but I’m mostly impressed by the pass. That was an NFL throw.

  87. shak_bucs Says:

    Other than the sack and arrant throw for Rudolph, Track has mostly done his job, need the receivers/backs to do theirs. He looks better than Gabbert.

  88. JimmyJack Says:

    Are you people literally complaing about playcalling in a practice game? This cant be real life.

  89. Rod Munch Says:

    36 yard punt to the 8, that’s a great punt, even if it hurts the average.

  90. Ash Says:

    Looked like PI to me.

  91. orlbucfan Says:

    Preseason game. Hey joe, I’m doing radio and Brother Gene D is announcing. I know I read that he retired. The more I listen to Trask QBing, the more I like him. And Tryon-Shoyinka sounds pretty good, too.

  92. shak_bucs Says:


  93. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – The 1st down playcall, running up the gut, is the same thing Leftwich does in the regular season unless Brady audibles out of it. That’s why it’s noted.

  94. MDFree Says:

    Trask is really slinging it! These guys need to hang on.

  95. JimmyJack Says:

    I was rooting for Darden but he might gotta make a play on ST if hes gonna make this team.

  96. Ash Says:

    …tackling come in

  97. Rod Munch Says:

    Nassib had him in the backfield, couldn’t hold on, almost like he had vaseline all over his hands.

  98. Zzbucs Says:

    Stop this nonsense!
    Is a practice game!!

    Give us a break!!

  99. Rod Munch Says:

    Last week was a really entertaining game by preseason standards.

    This game… not so much.

  100. beano Says:

    Is Trask playing with first or at least second teamers? If not how the hell can they evaluate him?

  101. HC Grover Says:

    Delany nice play

  102. Ash Says:

    Fooled the camera lol

  103. Rod Munch Says:

    beano – 2nd teamers, but the best players we’ve seen him play with.

    He held the ball way too long on his first pass, but otherwise has been OK in limited snaps. Last drive on 3rd and long he drilled in a pass, that Darden dropped, but he was also being interfered with so it’s not all on him.

    But Trask is fine so far, and I’m not one of the Florida fanbois that have to act like he’s a HOFer while he’s 4th on the depth chart.

  104. orlbucfan Says:

    Man, does this sound like preseason or what?

  105. LVMYBUCS Says:

    D look like sh it

  106. HC Grover Says:

    Our sad sacks are getting to play now.

  107. orlbucfan Says:

    7-0 Titans.

  108. Ash Says:

    Wow that tackling ouch

  109. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Nothing but stiffs in on D now…

  110. Jugheadfla Says:

    KJ Britt is horrendous…..that is all

  111. Ash Says:


  112. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Nassib should have used both fists Rod.

  113. Rod Munch Says:

    Titans have gone, before this drive, 5 plays, 3 plays, 3 plays and 4 plays. Hard to say they’ve been playing like sh–, regardless of how this drive ends.

  114. HC Grover Says:

    Willis is slippery

  115. orlbucfan Says:

    I’ll take 3-0.

  116. Ash Says:

    It’s almost like they don’t practice tackling in practice lol

  117. Coburn Says:

    Meh d has been fine. Been on the field so much at some point you give some plays up

  118. Elita Vita Says:

    Willis reminds me of Michael Vick.

  119. HC Grover Says:

    The camp Meat is getting to play.

  120. Coburn Says:

    Our offense on the other hand has been disappointing.. understanding not a lot of starters. Our backups are a little rough

  121. steele Says:

    Lenny is playing because he needs to get in shape.

    O-line not good.

    D not good. JTS still doesn’t get to the QB, stopped, lacks techniques and strength, same as last season.

    With over 20 guys out, what kind of conclusion can you reach? This is back of the bench stuff. We need to know if the starters can even hold up.

  122. CrackWise Says:

    Lets see if Trask can take us down for a score before half. Like he did last week before the kicker messed it up.

    Where is his boy Stern???

  123. JimmyJack Says:

    Defense has gotten a good amount of pressure &a couple nice coverage plays.

    3 drives started at midfield and zero points. Big redzone stop.

    Not sure what some of you people are talking about

  124. Rod Munch Says:

    I just remember when they went to 3 preseason games, people thought we’d get better football. And now it’s even worse.

    Said it last week, said it last year, go to 2 preseason games, with an 18 game schedule and 2 bye weeks.

  125. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Good pass defended by Scotty…

  126. Capt.Tim Says:

    Trask having more trouble against 2nd string than he did against 3rd string last week

  127. steele Says:

    On side note, have you all noticed that Jimmy Garoppolo is still—still—not traded yet, and still—still—being floated as the potential starting QB of the Tampa Bay Bucs, now because of the Brady mystery?

  128. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Blane was suppose to play the entire first quarter and I’ve heard from an inside source that Tom Tom failed a DT and the NFL is trying to keep the golden one protected or having it get out !!! They located Bin Laden and your telling me Brady went off the grid and no others in his circle are reporting about it, but I would get on the phone with San Fran and dangle Tyler and 2 first rounders for Jimmy because TB can keep the secret from getting out and would rather retire if the option was presented to him

  129. Rod Munch Says:

    Man, Scotty beat the guy cleanly, ran right by him, and Trask I think guided him out of bounds a little too far.

    But, again, good throw by Trask, even though he missed by a little bit, he showed good velocity, it wasn’t a college rainbow pass that hung in the air, that get intercepted in the NFL.

  130. Coburn Says:

    Seems like a weak penalty

  131. GOB Says:

    A lot of these guys will be looking for different jobs when the final cut happens. For the tweens, here’s to one more practice squad paycheck. Follow your dream!!!!

  132. Capt.Tim Says:

    JTS and Nassib are everywhere.
    Logan Hall has been absolutely invisible both weeks.
    If he wasnt our top pick- he wouldnt make the team

  133. Ash Says:

    No wants to trade for jimmy

  134. Jerry Says:

    Trask not getting much help. No one can hold on to the ball.

  135. Coburn Says:

    Penalty getting beat too badly?

  136. shak_bucs Says:

    Elbow was down

  137. Mike pizzoli Says:

    Scotty with a drop and white with a fumble

  138. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Didn’t dude fumble last week?? Nice.

  139. BucsFan81 Says:

    Trask has not looked bad it’s the bums around him that can’t hold on to the ball. I want to see Trask with the starters in pre season.

  140. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Trask is the real deal but the people around him are a bunch of garbage.

  141. orlbucfan Says:

    We need to get back to 4 preseason games. Talk about culling. Even with 2 turnovers, I’m impressed with Trask.

  142. Rod Munch Says:

    That was not on Scotty, the ball was too far outside, by like a foot. Nothing they can’t fix with practice, but that wasn’t on Scotty.

    On the fumble, watching the Nashville feed and they haven’t showed any angles.

  143. Coburn Says:

    Feels like it was on Miller. It hit his hands, gotta catch it

  144. Jugheadfla Says:

    White definitely has a Le’veon Bell look to him, unfortunate fumble

  145. JimmyJack Says:

    Id like to see Gieger step up. I dont see why he cant make this team over both/either Miller or Darden of he repeats last weeks performance

  146. Professor X Says:

    I mean, i get that it’s preseason but where is the urgency. This team looks lethargic. I get that the games don’t count but they matter. We have no juice. If we do, its sugar free and all on the defensive side of the ball. Just flat.

  147. Rod Munch Says:

    OK, they showed one angle, which was the TV angle, in slow motion and you couldn’t see much of anything, but it sure looked like his knee was down.

    White can be an excellent NFL player I think, but man, you can’t fumble or you won’t get in the game.

  148. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Brady got hit with performance enhancers !!! That’s why the NFL and his circle don’t want it getting out !!!

  149. james west Says:

    man i am tired of the scrubs sure hope to see the bad dogs soon

  150. IrishTony Says:

    It’s Ryan Griffin time!

  151. orlbucfan Says:

    Not too shabby defense for 2 turnovers. 6-0.

  152. Rod Munch Says:

    Darden hasn’t done anything that would make me think he’s going to make this team. He just doesn’t have anything special about, they’re trying to make him return stuff and he just doesn’t have the speed and quickness you’d want. Thompkins looked look better last week.

  153. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    I’d like to see Borrealis kick another 50+ yarder. I hope he gets a chance to showcase himself again

  154. orlbucfan Says:

    As long as it isn’t Gabbert. Major Barfo.

  155. SB~LV Says:

    All right enough of this!
    Bust out Devin Thompkins!

  156. HC Grover Says:

    Up the gut

  157. Coburn Says:

    Agree. Darden looks like any undersized undrafted guy. The only returning Buc that has shown much receiving is TJ. Rest has been try hungry undrafted guys

  158. IrishTony Says:

    When Brady’s under center these scrubs take it to another level. He makes everyone around him better.

  159. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Yucks2Nuts bypassed his parental control settings…might even be hopped up on Mom’s White Claw! More entertaining than the game so far admittedly…

  160. JimmyJack Says:

    Wow White just made a return!! Dardens chances just got slimmer. We probably still need a punt returner, dont see White doing punts.

  161. JimmyJack Says:

    Miller over the middle?

  162. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I’m beginning to believe that Byron Leftwich is retarded

  163. Dewey Selmon Says:

    They don’t have double numbers for recruitment, they have double numbers because rosters in college are over 100 players. If you have double number one had to be on offense and one on defense. They can not be on the field at the same time. i can believe Charles Davis said that.

  164. HC Grover Says:

    Up the gut

  165. NCBucfan Says:

    Miller over Darden!!! Please

  166. IrishTony Says:

    Let’s see what Trask can do with their 2 minute drill. Hey I’m rooting for him!

  167. Bucs 4 Life Says:

    Does anyone else think these announcers are a little biased…? SMDH

  168. Rod Munch Says:

    I just don’t see the Bucs not keeping Miller, not with his timing with Brady. I’m going to take the Bucs at their word that Miller was hurt for pretty much all of last week – if so, even if he only gets a couple of dozen passes that go his way the entire season, if they’re on deep passes, that’s quite the weapon and something different than what anyone else on the team provides.

    Also with the injury history of Bucs WRs, I think they keep a vet over a young guy. Other than if they keep a dedicated returner like Thompkins.

  169. Ash Says:

    Do they know they can do runs that are not always
    Up the gut for no gain

  170. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    67 needs to be cut. always getting penalize and cant protect QB

  171. beano Says:

    Trask is averaging twice as many yards per attempt than Gabbert. And with all the drops … makes you wonder.

  172. Rod Munch Says:

    White looks so damn good, if he quits fumbling, Fournette is going to have a hard time keeping him on the bench.

  173. orlbucfan Says:

    Here comes the penalties. 🙁

  174. Rod Munch Says:

    BTW, hands to the head on that sack.

    But whatever, it’s preseason, and it’s a stupid penalty anyways.

  175. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Nice pass Trask!

  176. JimmyJack Says:

    Yeah if you think about it Miller has torched the other team twice for big plays. Once last week. Once tonight.

    I can forgive Scotty for a preseason drop because hes shown he has great hands and you can trust him to make that play.

  177. Dooley Says:

    Goedeke is getting WORKED

  178. shak_bucs Says:

    No luck for trask

  179. orlbucfan Says:

    Buc Luck yet again. 3rd Turnover.

  180. NCBucfan Says:

    Trask has such a long windup, not as bad as leftwich used to have, but long!

  181. Jugheadfla Says:

    I feel bad for Trask as well, to have to show anything behind this doo doo oline

  182. MadMax Says:

    Oline looking like SH!T!!!

  183. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    @winnytestaverde I don’t think you can change parental setting when your a Dad to 2 kids, but just wait till the bomb drops .. Have a good one and will assume your still living with yours, but wanted to let Joe know what I heard from a friend he knows and not going to argue or say more about it.

  184. Dooley Says:

    So is Fred Johnson

  185. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Cut #57. cant tackle, can’t put pressure, does nit know what he is doing on the field

  186. orlbucfan Says:

    Boles won’t have problems making cuts.

  187. Logan Says:

    This back up OLine is awful. Goedeke sucks out loud.

  188. Rod Munch Says:

    We need to see Nassib come off the edge here like he was a rocket shoved up his a..!

  189. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    That int by Trask oughta quiet down some of those gator fans lol

  190. Jerry Says:

    OL looks bad. Receivers dropping passes. No one can hold on to the ball. Stupid penalties.

    Pretty much sums up the first half.

  191. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Brady to Miami for his 8th ring

  192. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Trask is now responsible for 24 points for the opposing team in the last 2 games

  193. Ash Says:

    No pressure

  194. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Turnovers last week,,,,turnovers this week

  195. Rod Munch Says:

    So they bring pressure all night — then at the goalline they switch to a no pressure soft zone… That’s some terrible play calling on defense.

  196. orlbucfan Says:

    Titans getting all their points off turnovers. Sound familiar?

  197. shak_bucs Says:

    With a line like ours, who needs enemies.

  198. HC Grover Says:

    They are perfecting the up the gut play. Practice makes perfect.

  199. Capt.Tim Says:

    I hope Brady isnt watching this!

  200. Winny Testaverde Says:

    300 pound pigs celebrating in the stands…brutal. A tough watch I tell ya…

  201. BucsFan81 Says:

    Another year of praying no starters get hurt cause the backups look like straight garbage.

  202. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Bring on Griff.

  203. Ash Says:

    Cuts are going to be easy to make that camp meat looks rough

  204. Pat Says:

    Kyle Trask is Jameis Winston 2.0. Just not good enough.

  205. IrishTony Says:

    Trask just can’t cut it. Good QBs make everyone around them better. My concern is that guard position. Goedeke is a penalty machine.

  206. Logan Says:

    I’m not a Gator fan but if you think that Trask is to blame you’re a moron. The OLine, the receivers, are all to blame. They’ve been terrible.

  207. CrackWise Says:

    Its preseason, Trask can throw a pick every dam time for all I care. Dude has the proper skill set to develop. If a pick is the measuring stick. At least it wasnt a PICK 6

  208. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s preseason, calm down ladies.

    The 2002 Bucs, in the preseason, famously went 1-3, got blown out bigly by the Redskins at home in game 3.

  209. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    This will be an easy job cutting people. I mean a lot.

  210. godlovesbucs Says:

    Looks like to me we have a lot of 3rd string against 2nd string… That will be a recipe for turnovers and penalties.

  211. Rod Munch Says:

    Down 13-0, and the Bucs just run the clock out, in the preseason, when you want to practice every situation.

    Cowardly coaching.

    It’s the preseason, run a gimmick play and try to get into FG range, or just run a straight deep pass. Do something that isn’t just running out the clock like little girl.

  212. JimmyJack Says:

    I was liking our depth on offense last week. This week everybody takes a step backward. Scotty, drop. Dadren, drop. White, fumble. Gieger, fumble.

  213. Winny Testaverde Says:

    Sweet update Yucks2Nuts…and your kids are lucky to have you! Thanks for the deep insider knowledge…you get complete credit for breaking news! Your Facebook “friend” knows his stuff!

  214. Vance Says:

    So long Gay Boi!

  215. Jerry Says:

    Some of these cuts are going to be easy. There are about 20 guys that have no business being on an NFL field.

  216. Ash Says:

    I know it’s preseason but I want the bucs to win every game lol that camp meat just don’t seem hungry to make the team

  217. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Trask takes to long to make a decision were to throw. I agree Boles wont have a hard time cutting these clowns.

  218. shak_bucs Says:

    One day trask will learn to block and throw at the same time, it’s easy.

  219. Rod Munch Says:

    That was absolutely not a drop on Scotty. Trask lead him out of bounds and overthrew him by about a foot. When it bounces off your finger tips, and you’re on the out of bounds line, there isn’t much else you can do as a WR.

    It certainly wasn’t a bad throw by Trask either, they missed it by inches. Just need needs reps to get it right, and in any case, if it’s Brady, the ball is where it needs to be to give Scotty the chance to catch it, in bounds.

  220. Jack Burton Mercer Says:


  221. Defense Rules Says:

    Feel sorry for Kyle Trask. His OLine is just collapsing far too often. Neither Goedeke nor Stinnie has impressed me (we’d better pick up someone for LG quickly or Brady may never return).

    That last INT wasn’t on Trask BTW (his arm was hit as he released & it floated like a wounded duck … easy INT). On several occasions though he’s held the ball way too long. On other occasions his receivers haven’t exactly done him any favors not catching the ball. Overall, has potential.

    Hard to tell much about the Bucs’ defense except that I don’t see many on the field in this game who I’d consider to be starters or key rotational guys (and especially on the interior DLine).

  222. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Shak_bucs why this isn’t more common knowledge among all these unemployed coaches and GMs is beyond me.

  223. SKBucsFan Says:

    Trask looks good out there. Calm in the pocket and quick to make decisions. His interceprion was unfortunate, but the OLine cant let them touch him like that.

    Defense didn’t have one guy out there on the touchdown play that will be on the team when the 53 are chosen. I’m not sure what we would expect to happen?

  224. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Even though this is just pre season practice, Practice the game the way you’re going to play the game. If you suck in practice, then definitely it will carry over to your actual game. The way this Bucs are playing, it looks like they are not taking practice seriously.

  225. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask is doing just fine, mainly showing he does indeed have the ability to throw an NFL ball. The mental side will come with reps.

    No idea if he’ll end up being a starter, or a career backup (and at his size, with a good enough arm, he’ll be around for a long time), but based on how buried he is on the depth chart and the lack of reps, I think he’s doing fine and if the team was going to make him the starter next year, I think that isn’t as disastrous as I would have thought even a couple of weeks ago. Don’t get me wrong, they’d still be a 6 or 7 win team, but I don’t think they’d be a 3 or 4 win team.

  226. Oxycondoms Says:

    Trask usually does decent against 4th stringers

  227. CrackWise Says:

    So this week Klye over throw Scotty. Does that mean his arm is to Big?

  228. MadMax Says:

    Off topic…if you want to hear a good tune, utube Bryan Martin “FAFO”…it just dropped yesterday….

  229. beano Says:

    Not ever giving Trask a chance with the starters makes me wonder if the coaches don’t WANT him to look TOO good. Hmm.

  230. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Cut #34 he has no idea how to tackle

  231. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    I’d really like to see Trask running with the 1’s against the 1’s for at least a quarter next week.

  232. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Time for the handoff…

  233. SKBucsFan Says:

    Could be worse. We could have the QB on the other team. I can’t imagine having a guy run for his life every 2nd play, get sacked or throw it into coverage all the time.

  234. CrackWise Says:


    You dont have to imagine. See J Wiston era

  235. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    What…..no holding on that KV run?

  236. David Says:

    Trask…. Yet again showing he has absolutely no feel in the pocket, no internal clock, and has no clue on how to move around in the pocket.
    Standing their flatfooted constantly. Then he tries to get a long throw out a little late and his arm gets hit – interception. That absolutely is his fault

  237. SKBucsFan Says:

    @Crackwise…..I am trying to forget

  238. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    To that running well again….stuffed

  239. Rod Munch Says:

    Gee, I wonder why the Titans were runblizting on 1st down?

  240. Anonymous Says:

    Hey Joe, did we look this bad when you watched the joint practices?

  241. orlbucfan Says:

    What’s with Leftwich and this first down run up the middle crap? This is preseason. Open it up, Leftwich!

  242. Kentucky Buc Says:

    You need some of my 800mg Tylenol . Cures what ails you

  243. Trask To The Future Says:

    Oh zip it, David. The Trask INT was on the terrible protection.

  244. Ash Says:

    Things you can count on death, taxes, and bucs running up the gut on first down

  245. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Stop with this 1st down $hit

  246. orlbucfan Says:

    Well, well, well, a throw for a change!

  247. Trask To The Future Says:



  248. Anonymous Says:

    Coaches dont want trask to put first stringers at risk with his slow decision making. Trask time to shine is now against players who will get cut

  249. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice job by Trask there – and nice catch by Thompkins.

  250. MadMax Says:

    Great throw Trask!

  251. CrackWise Says:


    What do you expect from a kid still learning? What you mention as an issue is coachable.

    Just watch

  252. Rod Munch Says:



  253. Coburn Says:

    Thompkins has to stick. Would be a travesty to keep someone like Darden over him

  254. David Says:

    I really do not understand why everyone keeps thinking Trask looks good and how getting his arm hit when he throws late and long is not his fault.
    You have to know how to move in the pocket as a pocket passer.
    You have to feel the pressure and not just stand there for several extra seconds flat footed until you’re sacked.
    I don’t know if he can’t get through his reads fast enough but it does not look good for him. If the pocket is clean, sure he can look great… Almost every quarterback can, but that’s pretty unrealistic on about 20% of your drops.

    How do you perform under pressure when the pocket is collapsing… So far he’s failing miserably.

  255. shak_bucs Says:

    Trask steady giving catches that get dropped.

  256. CrackWise Says:

    Play calling is not doing Trask any favors either

  257. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Nothing wrong with that throw

  258. Trask To The Future Says:

    Wasn’t knocked loose that was a DROP.

  259. Rod Munch Says:

    Would have been a tough catch in the endzone, but the ball was right there.

    Hard to take much from 3rd stringers playing each other, but still, you want to see Trask just make the right throws, and he is.

  260. NCBucfan Says:

    Outstanding drive by Trask so far!

  261. orlbucfan Says:

    That 1st down run up the middle is BS. What is Leftwich’s buzz w/it?

  262. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    The question is emerging did we win a super bowl with Byron or despite Byron?

  263. RustyRhinos Says:

    Hey Joe, did we look this awesome when you watched the joint practices?

  264. CrackWise Says:

    Should have been a PI or a catch in the Endzone.

    Either way. Perfect throw. .

    Point is not to be a Trask Fan Boy. But to be objective about the teams future QB

  265. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Give Trask a play action on 1st…..so far it’s run….then empty backfield…..$ucks

  266. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    This is David’s first ball game.

  267. David Says:

    Crack wise

    He is in year 2. Having an internal clock & feel in the pocket is usually not coached. It’s instinctive. Don’t get me wrong, I like the draft pick, I was rooting for him, I thought he’d be great to learn under Brady.
    I just had no idea that he’s absolutely clueless with instinct and feel when it comes to maneuvering in the pocket.
    Look at the first sack – he had all the Time in the world and just stood there flat-footed. I don’t understand how he doesn’t feel that guy right next to him.
    It really really does not look good for him. The last week he looked much better in the second half so we’ll see but so far when there is pressure, he’s abysmal

  268. Coburn Says:

    While trask may look a little stiff you guys really have to give him more than 2 seconds before saying things like he doesn’t have an internal clock. Jameis would drive me absolutely insane holding holding, patting, moving, parting, then finally heaving.

  269. SKBucsFan Says:

    As opposed to what David? Having him play like Winston? No thanks. He looks like he is on track to be our QB of the future. One we can win with.

  270. shak_bucs Says:

    That was on trask there

  271. Trask To The Future Says:


    You know nothing about football. You can’t throw down field without waiting for the play to develop. That was an attempted 20+ yard route.

    Dude threw for 4,000+ yards as a senior in the SEC against many players that are now in the NFL. I think the guy makes reads and knows how to work the pocket just fine.

  272. David Says:

    Jack… That doesn’t even make sense but could try.
    I’m just calling it like I see it. When he hits his first guy, he’s fine.
    When he has time in the pocket, he’s fine.
    But if he has to go to his second or third option he does not do well and he has no instinct in the pocket whatsoever.

    This is an absolute fact that as plain as day to anyone watching.

  273. CrackWise Says:

    Crap. He just got hurt. Dude jumped on his back. It hurt me anyways

  274. shak_bucs Says:

    That ball should have been pinned at the 1, find the ball sir.

  275. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Really, really sloppy…….that punt should have been downed at the 5

  276. SKBucsFan Says:

    Except for the last play….thank goodness it’s the pre-season.

  277. Joe Says:

    Hey Joe, did we look this bad when you watched the joint practices?


  278. JimmyJack Says:

    Trask does a poor job feeling pressure and thats the biggest knock i see. Seems like thats something that can come with experience

  279. IrishTony Says:

    Trask to me looks like a slow footed backup. Brad Johnson was an anomaly and that was a different era. Look how many years it took Johnson to become a good QB. He was serviceable but average those years in Minnesota. I honestly don’t think Trask has the moxy and processing skills that Johnson had. We’ll see. He’s got one more game to prove himself before (possibly) getting cut or going to practice squad.

  280. Oxycondoms Says:

    Take away trask first read even against backups has no clue what to do

  281. Trask To The Future Says:

    David, you’re hilarious. You must be new to football. The stuff you say is garbage. Brady himself moves laterally very little when I’m the pocket.

    Stick to watching golf.

  282. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    David is wishing, hoping, praying JW comes back when Brady retires.

  283. David Says:

    Trask to the future …

    😂 sure. Try not to be so pathetic. I like Trask, I liked the draft pick. But the one thing he cannot do is maneuver in the pocket or have any kind of feel when the pass rush is getting to him. He has shown that last year in preseason and so far this year. It’s not good.
    If you disagree, great but you don’t have to be a d*ck about it, people have different opinions.

  284. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Play action by TN on 1st down..

  285. Rod Munch Says:

    Why wouldn’t we try a 59 yard FG when you’re down 13-0 and you claim to have a guy with a gun for a leg?

  286. Trask To The Future Says:



    Man, you’re going to be crying yourself to sleep for years when Trask is our starter. No way is he getting cut or put on the practice squad.

  287. RustyRhinos Says:

    Well there is always that. Maybe we are better at practices.

  288. Rod Munch Says:

    Tampabaybucfan – play action? I’ve been watching Leftwich since he took over in Arizona and I’ve never even heard of that. Stop making up words to pretend you’re smart.

  289. David Says:


    Seriously dude, we’re rooting for the same team, so why are you such a little biotch? I have an opinion that you disagree with and you can’t handle it because you have such a man crush for thin, it’s pathetic.

    This really is pathetic, if you offer up any criticism of Trask there’s a handful of people that come out of the woodwork after they release their junk from their left hand

  290. Trask To The Future Says:


    Sorry, but your QB scouting/analysis skills don’t match up with anyone else that knows the game.

  291. David Says:

    Trash and Jack

    You two are really are pathetic. You’re allowed to criticize someone when they make a boneheaded play. And Trask, when under pressure, tends to make a bunch so far.

    If he improves and ends up being an all pro leading the Buccaneers to five Super Bowls in the next decade, hell yeah I am all for it. But so far what we have seen says he won’t be on the team within two years

  292. Trask To The Future Says:


    You’re not giving an opinion, you’re making statements as if they’re facts. Spoiler alert: they’re not.

  293. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    David, I want Trask to be successful and you don’t. Simple as that.

  294. Coburn Says:

    As others mentioned our offense has longer developing routes. Sometimes he hangs in a little long… I’ve too often seen guys who panic. One of the sacks it seemed like he was better off taking it and tucking it like he did

  295. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask as a terrible draft pick, when you have Brady you don’t waste a 2nd rounder on a QB when you need things like corner depth, maybe some offensive line depth, maybe another WR. Plus, if you took a QB, the Bucs should have taken Mills, who has already proven he can play at an NFL level.

    With all that said, that doesn’t mean I bury Trask and hope he fails. Trask has been fine. All you want to see is for him to make the right read, and to put zip on the ball and put the ball where someone can catch it. He’s doing all of that tonight, and did it last week. He has a lot of work to do still, but that’s why he’s the, at best, 3rd string QB.

  296. David Says:

    Trask just stood there flat footed as the pocket claps towards him then actually stepped up and caused the fumble himself. Again, when there is pressure he is absolutely abysmal

  297. David Says:

    What’s more pathetic is how some people here cannot handle their man crush being criticized. That is so pathetic it’s barely even funny

  298. Rod Munch Says:

    Now that was a bad throw, he didn’t see the safety at all.

  299. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Throw it to the white jerseys Trask!

  300. David Says:


    I want every single buccaneer to succeed and be an all pro leading the team to SB year after year, the difference is I can be objective and you can’t.

  301. MadMax Says:

    GJ KV!

  302. Rod Munch Says:

    Can’t wait to see the national morons who just look at the box scores tell us that Vaughn has moved into the #2 RB role.

  303. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Narrowing down the choice for left guard.

  304. RustyRhinos Says:

    That sucks

  305. NCBucfan Says:

    Another one bites the dust!!!! My god!!

  306. BucsFan81 Says:

    We are screwed now on the oline. Jason better start getting some fat people that can block or we are screwed.

  307. Coburn Says:

    Damn why was stinnie still in? Shouldnt he be the starter?

  308. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Where are our screens

  309. SKBucsFan Says:

    I agree David. Trask does need some improvement in the pocket. But this is his 5th quarter of professional football. And it goes to show hoe the OLine is so important in football. Why not provide our QB, whoever it is , with a top O Line? That converts to wins.

  310. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Licht is on the phone

  311. David Says:

    As for players who have done well… JTS played a hell of a game when he was in. White looks real good at running back again.
    LB #53 Has looked pretty good two weeks in a row

  312. MadMax Says:

    LG is going to be a weak spot so far….just saying.

  313. Rod Munch Says:

    Why is Stinnie playing in the 3rd quarter with the 3rd stringers? Man.

    I’m not nearly as high on Stinnie as others around here, but still, I don’t see why he’d be in the game still.

  314. HC Grover Says:

    Another casualty in the line. Who is left?

  315. Capt.Tim Says:

    Goedeke and Everret are terrible.
    Stennie is a big loss!

  316. MadMax Says:

    Sign Tretter and move Hainsey to LG.

  317. RPK Says:

    Why is Stinnie in with 3 mins left in the 3rd?

    What a joke.

    This team is imploding with injuries and Bowles is still playing starters deep into pre season games.

  318. Coburn Says:

    Seems so dumb that he was out there. Looked solid out sb season and goedeke looks like he needs more time

  319. Rod Munch Says:

    With all the injuries, I’m thinking the Bucs don’t play their starters next week either, and I’m OK with that at this point.

  320. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    In deep do do now

  321. CrackWise Says:

    Now if you Brady panic freaks want something to panic about. You have earned this one.

    Start crying Brady Babies

  322. David Says:

    Well… the rookie at LG needs to step it now!

  323. RustyRhinos Says:

    Hit him in the hands, so close.

  324. CrackWise Says:

    Heck Rod Munch, why play the starters during the season? They are just gonna get Brady hurt

  325. BucsFan81 Says:

    We have found our kicker. Bring Ryan back please.

  326. Ash Says:

    Sucks stinnie got injuried but he wasn’t setting the world on fire either

  327. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    David, sigh, no one is objective. Coaches included.

  328. NCBucfan Says:

    The Saints d line is gonna molest our o line week 2! My god

  329. Rod Munch Says:

    That was the same as Scotty earlier, but on the sideline, just like a few inches too far. That can easily be fixed with reps.

  330. lambeau Says:

    Geiger dropped it; Thompkins caught his.

  331. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Not much leg but got it through

  332. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Lucky that low line drive wasn’t blocked.

  333. David Says:


    Because the two guys at L guard are fighting for the position. Stinnie started last week. He was playing back up this week. They don’t know who the starter is yet.

    Looks like the rookie now

  334. Bucamania Says:

    Why is the f was Stinnie in there?

  335. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    You’re right, Crack. Nothing to see here.

  336. BucsBro Says:

    Why the hell is Bowles playing Stinnie third quarter of a preseason game?


  337. Rod Munch Says:

    If Stinnie was a starter then the Bucs were in huge trouble. But still, he’s a top backup, and I don’t get why he’d be playing – other than trying to give Trask a chance not to look awful.

  338. MJC Says:

    Todd shaking his head. Only himself to blame. Why was Stinne out there in the 3rd quarter.

    We see why he is not a HC

  339. Gus Says:

    Nuts that Stinnie was still out there. Losing faith in this regime by the second.

  340. Jerry Says:

    It’s pretty clear the Bucs still haven’t shaken off the injury bug from last year.

    By the time Brady comes back, he may have a whole new starting offense at this rate.

  341. Coburn Says:

    One way or another need another vet interior OL. Even if goedeke does ok we have nobody at center or guard if injuries strike. Leverett does not inspire

  342. Rod Munch Says:

    MJC – I doubt Bowles is managing who is playing at left guard in the 3rd quarter of the 2nd preseason game. That’s Leftwich you’d want to be mad at.

  343. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Precisely how did Stinnie get hurt? Did anybody rewind?

  344. David Says:


    Don’t take it so damn personal when there’s a little criticism for your boy. I like Trask, went to several gator games with him there. I was glad they drafted him. I thought he’d be perfect to sit behind Brady, but I was wrong. I had no idea he just doesn’t have a good feel in the pocket. Can’t move around in the pocket very well. I hope it gets better but so far to me he is showing that when under pressure – he can’t hang. And 20% of your drop backs are under pressure.

    I do hope it gets much much better, and maybe I’m wrong, but to me having a good feel in the pocket is instinct, not something that’s coached

  345. MJC Says:

    Maybe Brady needs to play in the shotgun all year. He will have no time to throw.

  346. RustyRhinos Says:

    Coburn in a week there will be 1000 players looking for work, we can bring in a few.

  347. mark2001 Says:

    Now we see what Hutchinson has.

  348. Trask To The Future Says:


    We got it, you don’t think Trask moves around the pocket well and can’t handle pressure and that he’s flat footed.

    We got it. Now shut up.

  349. CrackWise Says:

    You know what, I am all in for a 0-17 season, lets tank for the number one pick!

  350. BucsBro Says:

    Stinnie got hurt because Vaughn ran right off his back to the right side. Vaughn tripped on Stinnie’s leg, and then the defender rolled right into Stinnie’s leg and bent it.

    He’s toast. That leg is almost certainly blown.

  351. RustyRhinos Says:

    The guy who tackled Vaughn un blocked rolll3d up his leg

  352. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    David. Don’t take it so personal when there’s a little criticism for you.

  353. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    Stinnie just shouldnt have been out there this late in the preseason

  354. BucsBro Says:

    Maybe Brady will just decide to retire again. He’s going to take hits as the offensive line is crumbling before our eyes.

  355. MJC Says:

    Rod Munch

    I disagree. As HC direction should he given to Byron in game prep that any players in consideration for a starting role do not need to be out there with 18 mins to play.

  356. mark2001 Says:

    Jack…looked like Vaughan caught him on the back of the leg.

  357. David Says:

    That’s two weeks in a row. This kid has some speed and is looking like a ball hawk

  358. CrackWise Says:

    Open up the Play Book NOW for Trask Coach

  359. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Please stop stammering Ronde.

  360. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    How many of our 11 are actually nfl players?

  361. David Says:


    What’s the point of criticizing me having an opinion? That’s just trying to get personal. Saying BS like I don’t know what I’m talking about when I’ve probably played more football than you’ve watched having played all the way through college. But regardless, Trask will have another year.
    The only concern right now is center and left guard

  362. MJC Says:

    Trask is getting his receivers killed

  363. David Says:

    Isn’t that a penalty against defenseless receiver? Seems like that’s called nonstop now

  364. Rod Munch Says:

    MJC – Yeah, that’s a nice thought, but that’s not how this team is being ran. Pretty clearly Leftwich runs the offense, and Bowles runs the defense, and Arians is still around to break any ties.

  365. Bucamania Says:

    Trask needs to stop floating passes down the middle of the field.

  366. shak_bucs Says:

    Lucky that wasn’t another interception trask, gotta be smarter.

  367. Rod Munch Says:

    That was another terrible throw by Trask, he’s gonna get his WR’s killed. On both of his bad throws he didn’t see the safety.

  368. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    I was expecting a flag too.

  369. Rod Munch Says:

    David – I hope they’re pulling back on calling that nonsense, it’s just football. But I agree, if the Bucs do that against another team, they will get called 100% of the time.

  370. mark2001 Says:

    Hate the camera work. They were showing Titan players drinking water while Stinnie on the ground.

  371. Capt.Tim Says:

    With this Coach, and this line- we owe it to Brady.
    Gotta trade him to Miami.
    Let him retire in one piece

  372. HC Grover Says:

    All in all they look awful.

  373. MJC Says:

    Rod Munch – good comments. But you made my point. Boles Is not a HC. Just a coordinator with the the title

  374. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    On second thought… maybe he DOESN’T really need to run with the 1’s next week….

  375. CrackWise Says:

    Whatever. who wants to bet Trask puts them in position to win the game?

  376. shak_bucs Says:

    Camarda has been so good tonight, not much talk of it because of coverage issues.

  377. RustyRhinos Says:

    Stop whining about Barbers stammering, I am having to watch the Tennessee crew of Charles Davis…

  378. David Says:


    I hope so too, the receiver needs to be scared going across the middle, but I did not hear that as part of a rule changes/emphasis this year

  379. Rod Munch Says:

    Capt.Tim – This isn’t the offensive line or the WRs that Brady will be playing with.

    People are such drama queens, like they’ve never seen an NFL preseason before.

  380. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Miami? Hasn’t Brady suffered enough?

  381. David Says:

    These youngsters need to wrap up the ball carrier!!!.

  382. Bucamania Says:

    Licht needs to bring in a vet C/G now for sure.

  383. Rod Munch Says:

    MJC Says – Gruden in 2002 was just an OC running the offense while Monte ran the defense, later on, after Gruden threw a fit and got Rich McKay fired, that’s when he took control of the team and tanked it in his image.

    But I don’t care if Bowles is truly in charge of everything or not. Brady is the one that will run the offense, and if Brady isn’t playing, the team is going to stink regardless of who the coach is.

  384. MJC Says:

    Rod Munch / Capt Tim – yes, all these players currently on the field won’t be playing with Brady as starters, except for Stinne who was out there for no benefit.

    It’s not like the coaches don’t know what Stinne can do

  385. RustyRhinos Says:


  386. mark2001 Says:

    Yeah Rhino….NFL network. Get the home game broadcast. The Derrick Henry show.

  387. RPK Says:

    Trask is trash I LOL at anyone wasting time thinking about him.

    This is the last year the Bucs will be relevant.

    We have the Greatest QB of all time for 1 more year

    And Bowles is playing starting guard deep into post season game.

    Now he’s out for the year with Jensen. So worth it!

    I wonder if they’re going to play Carlton Davis on special teams again this year so that he can get hurt on a non-contact play and be out for 70% of the season.

    What. A. Joke.

  388. Destinjohnny Says:

    Missing on those pics hurts

  389. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Our ST suck so bad

  390. Rod Munch Says:

    Nice run by their punter, but he’s not a 4.4 guy like we got, if that was our punter he’d have picked up another 3 or 4 yards.

  391. Zwak Says:

    I agree with the first half of that Munch, well said Sir!

  392. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Our defense actually has looked pretty good

  393. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Now we are down 10…how about throwing the ball on 1st

  394. HC Grover Says:

    How many of them can we get rid of next week?

  395. Rod Munch Says:

    Wait, our putner is a 4.4 guy, he’s a 4.54 guy…


    “Jake Camarda ran the fastest 40 by a punter since 2003.”

    WOW! What a weapon!

  396. HC Grover Says:

    OK up da gut we go.

  397. shak_bucs Says:

    yep TBBF, ST (not the kicking), and the offense have been terrible tho.

  398. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Now THAT is a stache.

  399. Trask To The Future Says:

    Bucs have had such bad luck with injuries. Last year and now this year. Unbelievable.

  400. MJC Says:

    Time to sign JC Tretter

  401. Coburn Says:

    Yeah losing sight of that safety is becoming a real pattern

  402. Bucamania Says:

    Hey the punter looks better at least

  403. HC Grover Says:

    Trask look awful so far.

  404. Coburn Says:

    Didn’t he get there a vit too early?

  405. LVMYBUCS Says:

    If you all think Trask is the future we in trouble.

  406. Rod Munch Says:

    Now that Trask is rushing things in the hurry up he’s throwing softball college passes and not putting zip on them. I was hoping they had broke him of that.

  407. Bucamania Says:

    He’s certainly not looking off the safety but the bigger problem is he’s floating passes downfield and NFL safeties can cover ground

  408. RustyRhinos Says:

    Who is then LV? Gabbert,

  409. B. Mikal Says:

    I’m sorry, you all are about to hate me, Leftwich and this play calling is unacceptable !!

  410. JimmyJack Says:

    This has been a very bad 2nd half for Trask.

  411. mark2001 Says:

    The offensive saving grace is that most of the guys won’t be starting on Sundays. Trask hasn’t been impressive. Too may passes leading wr’s into danger and seems oblivious to d backs homing in on his passes, like the one he floated a couple plays ago.

  412. Bucamania Says:

    You can’t bring up playcalling in the preseason. They don’t gameplan

  413. Bucc941 Says:

    Trask wouldn’t be a starter for the Seahawks right now yet some of ya’ll act like he’s the future??? Gtfoh

  414. JimmyJack Says:

    Mikal preseason football always has been and always will be vanilla playcalling

  415. David Says:



    Sometimes they call a play to watch how certain players react

  416. Bucamania Says:

    Thoughts on the top pick, Logan Hall? I saw him get pressure on one play

  417. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:

    Other than #53, I don’t think ANY of these guys on defense in the second half makes this team. Dear lord they can’t tackle.

  418. mark2001 Says:

    Well David…that being the case, trask hasn’t reacted very well.

  419. Rod Munch Says:

    I knew last week when we got a good, entertaining game, that this would be a complete boring slog of a game.

  420. HC Grover Says:

    They stunk.

  421. Bucc941 Says:

    Josh Rosen would’ve been a better option than Trask lol.

  422. RustyRhinos Says:

    The sideline area looks dangerous for player running out of bounds, why not grass?

  423. Rod Munch Says:

    Holy crap, some guy name Olakunle Fatukasi has 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks for us.

  424. Rod Munch Says:

    Olakunle Fatukasi 10 tackles, 5 solo tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2 TFL

    I don’t even know who he is.

  425. RustyRhinos Says:

    Rookie from Rutgers

  426. Professor X Says:

    can we get a nice 2 min drive that ends with points? salvage something positive from this sh** show?

  427. mark2001 Says:

    Munch…the Schiano guy. LOL.

  428. David Says:


    I noticed him last week too. He looked good then as well. It would be nice, they need some linebacker depth

  429. Rob In Land O Lakes Says:


    A number of people say he’s had a good camp and may make the team. He looked pretty good against Miami as well.

  430. Bucamania Says:

    Fatukasi can play. Stuard better get healthy soon

  431. JimmyJack Says:

    Rod Munch yeah thats #53. He has outplayed Britt in both games from what ive seen

  432. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    Surely they 4got to take Stinnie out of the game

  433. Bucamania Says:

    The camera keep showing Goedeke. Man I don’t want to look at the guards picked after him. Long road to go.

  434. David Says:


    I agree. He can make some great throws when he has time and is hitting his first guy. Every single time the play is extended or there’s a little pressure it’s been horrible.
    Bad decisions, taking unnecessary sacks, getting his arm hit, fumbling, leading receivers into decapitations.
    Some people on here are all gung ho when they see a couple good throws but the way I see it is you are in the NFL now, if it’s a clean pocket you should be able to get it done! It’s how you react the 20% of the time when there’s pressure

  435. mark2001 Says:

    I think good chance he beats out Stuard. Stuart has a ton of heart, but can’t cover anyone. Far too slow.

  436. shak_bucs Says:

    trask was ok the first half and bad in the 2nd half.

  437. HC Grover Says:

    Trask is not the answer. We need a QB bad he is just awful. Get him out. I saw enough.

  438. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Very, very sloppy game

  439. Coburn Says:

    That kayla has a very large head for her smaller body at least

  440. Rod Munch Says:

    Oh no… 4th and 9, and Trask is throwing a 3-yard out like he’s Mike Glennon.

    That is something that can not be tolerated. Throw the ball deep, try to make a play, don’t try to protect your turnover stats.

  441. David Says:

    Why does everyone think they forgot to take Stinnie out of the game?

    It was obvious he played with starters last week and the rookie played with the starters this week, so he was in there in the third.
    They’re evaluating, trying to figure out who the starting left guard is because so far what we’ve heard throughout camp, Stinnie did not lock it up.

    Unfortunately he got hurt and if the rookie can’t beat out the next guy, they’re in trouble

  442. Wild Bill Says:

    This may rate as the worst Bucs preseason game in a very long time! Lots of low lights. Dam few high lights. Also, does Todd Bowles look pregnant? Or just pot bellied?

  443. JimmyJack Says:

    I expected Trask to build off of his good performance last week. He clearly has some work to do. Good thing is hes got a year left in his development

  444. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Any QB is ok when you give him all day to throw the ball

  445. mark2001 Says:

    Tbbf. I think the second/third team defense played pretty wel. The Offense? Didn’t hardly look like a starter among them.

  446. Rod Munch Says:

    Wild Bill – oh you’d be wrong about that, take any game 4 vs Cleveland preseason game, those were even worse than this, when you have the goat farmer out there that couldn’t throw more than 12 yards down the field trying to lead a game winning drive. That was clearly the worst and most boring preseason game I’ve ever seen.

  447. Anonymous Says:

    That game was almost unwatchable. This whole organization needs to go back to the drawing board.

  448. Bucamania Says:

    Last week’s game was surprisingly well played. This was a sloppy, ugly game on both sides. Guessing they beat each other up pretty good in joint practice.

  449. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask’s performance got worse as the talent around him got worse.

    What I don’t like was him making some bad decisions, on two plays completely not seeing the safety – then when he went to hurry up he reverted to his college softball no-zip throws.

    But those bad throws, both were going to #9… can anywhere here name who #9 is without looking at the roster?

  450. Bucamania Says:


  451. Kody Says:


  452. Rod Munch Says:

    Good job Bucamania, give yourself a Watson style rubdown as a reward.

  453. shak_bucs Says:

    Joe Tryon Shoyinka

  454. shak_bucs Says:

    Kody, not even backups, guys who will be Doordashing in a few days.

  455. Bucamania Says:

    LOL i think i will @rod munch.

    Sterns is a quality UDFA. Dude led college football in catches, yards, and TDs but he’s tiny.

  456. Kody Says:

    We have MAJOR problems with the OL. Paying Tretter $8 mil probably seems like a great deal right now. Hope they go after him.

  457. Craig Says:

    The real problem is that the Bucs still don’t know what to do with a mobile QB, and the O-line sucks.

    Next to that is that the defense still can’t wrap up on tackles. The special teams really aren’t that special.

    Trask is much better than he looked tonight, he can sucker punch 85% of the back-up QBs in the league, but until he plays with the ones we don’t really know.

  458. IrishTony Says:

    Why did they let Kappa walk? They could have paid him. They’re wasting all this money on extra receivers like Julio Jones when they already had a good receiver room!

  459. MadMax Says:

    @Bucmania, Ed Ingram is winning the starting Guard job with the Vikings….thats who i wanted and he was still there….went 2 or 3 picks later.

  460. T REX Says:

    5 wins w/o brady

  461. Gary Says:

    Lamar Jackson 2023

  462. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucamania – oh right, I now remember who Sterns is now. To me, when I watched his highlights, he didn’t look like an NFL guy – and from what I remember, his workout numbers weren’t very good either, thus the reason he was a UDFA. If anything he’s very much like Darden, a productive college player who doesn’t really have any special traits. In any case, I’m certain they can put him on the practice squad if they wanted to, but man, they have some quality guys who won’t make that since you can really only keep like 2, maybe 3, WRs max and I’m certain Thomkins, Darden and Geiger are all ahead of him on that list.

  463. Rod Munch Says:

    Gary Says:
    August 20th, 2022 at 10:46 pm
    Lamar Jackson 2023


    I’d gladly take that in a second. Would never happen, but to get a franchise QB in free agency, a young guy that will play for another 10-15 years, hell yeah.

  464. Goatfarmer Says:

    Well, then. First things first.

    Defense looked very solid, especially the pass rush but coverages were generally solid, run stops were well gapped, LB play was inspired. And there was little drop off from when JTS (who beasted) and Hall (who still looks milk toasty) were in there to dudes I never heard of. We look to have better depth, particularly at LB, than I thought. Good.

    Because based on the OL, the defense will have to resemble the 1999 or 2002 Bucs to have a chance. By Monday, Tretter better be signed.

    The Goobert threw a bad ball to Rudolph and then sat down. Based on what I’ve seen from Rudolph, he looks slow and like he doesn’t know what he is doing.

    And then it was the Kyle Trashk show. Some good mixed in with a lot of bad. Save the excuses for someone else. I don’t hate the guy and am encouraged by some progress. But he won’t be ready to lead a team for a few years yet. He is slow to process, has Glennonesque pocket presence and fumbles like Winston did. And those floaters – a few more should have been picked off and the receivers were getting killed. He did have one nice ball to Miller that Scotty dropped, which could have changed the whole game, but we’ll never know because he regressed right in front of us. To deny it is what homer fanboys like Bucboytard do.

  465. Anonymous Says:

    Lamar Jackson has less than 5 good years in this league with his style of play. Jackson with a sprained ankle is about the 25th best quarterback in the league.

  466. LakelandSteve Says:

    So we learned three things tonight. 1. Our offensive line sucks. 2. Our Special Teams sucks. 3. Our tackling sucks.

  467. Anonymous Says:

    Stop playing Trask so much with garbage players. How are you going to evaluate him without playing him with the starters ? No qb can succeed and build any confidence
    playing with a make shift OL and receivers dropping the ball so many times. He even hit the speedy receiver, Miller on the deep pass and he could not catch it. So much for Trask not having strong arm. No pass rush. Titan rookie qb had so much time to throw the ball. You give Trask that much time he would have multiple TD’s.

  468. Beats Says:

    Had hope for Trask, but he just doesn’t have any speed on that ball.
