Bucs-Falcons, Open Thread

October 9th, 2022

Time to smack around Marcus Mariota and the Dixie Chicks.

This is where you comment all game long with fellow fans and random haters. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.

Be nice. Be respectful, unless you’re barking about zebras or the heinous Falcons and their ugly uniforms.

Go Bucs!!!

    #LGLG! Looking for a complete game from our defense and offense today!

  3. Bucamania Says:

    Better show up today boys.

  5. Listnfrmafar Says:

    GO GIANT, taking down Roger’s in international game. LOVE IT!!!

  6. Bucamania Says:

    Dabol is a helluva coach. His team comes to play every week.

  7. DungyDance Says:

    How much longer is the Nike contract to make NFL jerseys? Joe is right, Falcons uni’s are awful, but in general a lot of the looks out there now aren’t good. The old Adidas ones were so much better. I always thought the Bucs color rush scheme could have been cool with all pewter, the color they used to have for the pants back in the Adidas days.

  8. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Coaching matters in this league and ability to make adjustments which is what scares me with Bowles and this staff.

  9. SB~LV Says:

    I really don’t know about today, of course they should win and most probably will.
    If they win I will not be too excited, at best it can become a building block. I hope they yank Brady as soon as the odds of the backup QB finishing the game with a win is in hand.
    I want to see Rachad White bust 2-3 big runs, he is capable of that.
    Back up TE’s are going to have to shine given the opportunity today.

  10. Francisco Guzman Says:

    I wanna see how this defensive line responds today after that putrid performance against the chiefs.

  11. Bucamania Says:

    Did the game even sell out?

  12. Timbucs2 Says:

    Offense was terrible 2 weeks ago, defense was bad last week. We need to start fast on both ends, get out of this slump.

    Go Bucs!

  13. CrackWise Says:

    Wow, I didn’t realize the Dallas Defense is the number TWO ranked defense in the league.

    2-2 feels good

  14. SB Says:

    LFG from Montana!!!!!!!!

  15. HC Grover Says:

    hope bowles has ditched the prevent offense plan

  25. D-Rok Says:

  26. Francisco Guzman Says:

  27. Adrnagy Says:

  29. PassingThru Says:

  30. Adrnagy Says:

    Goedeke. Hold your ground.

  31. Roc Says:

    Kyle here is your Bus Ticket have a Good day

  32. HC Grover Says:

    bad throw after bad drop punt ugggh

  33. Adrnagy Says:

    Rudolph looks out of shape. Perhaps over weight.

  34. Anonymous Says:

    He put that ball in the air an hour and none of our guys got back there?

  35. Francisco Guzman Says:

    It’s perplexing the struggles of this offense and these slow starts. It’s getting really annoying.

  36. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    FFS two dropped passes in a row.

  37. HC Grover Says:

    maybe rudolf can get a job at the north pole. the season is up soon.

  38. Anonymous Says:

  48. Dooley Says:

    JTS!!! LFG!!!!

  49. DoooshLaRue Says:


    1st round bust?

  50. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Take JTS off the milk carton…for now.

  51. D-Rok Says:

    Best play by JTS of his young NFL career. That LT on the Birds is no slouch, either. Get 3 more this day, JTS! That was a text-book rush by 9.

  52. Francisco Guzman Says:

    It’s time for this offense to start looking decent at least.

  53. HEHATESME1213 Says:

    Jts is looking like he might make me look stupid for my comments earlier!!
    As a bucs fan I hope he does
    That missed tackle in the backfield made me 💀

  54. Dooley Says:

    That spin move was vicious

  55. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Way to go JTS! Let’s go O!

  56. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Nice to see Godwin make a play.

  57. shak_bucs Says:

    The God is back

  58. D-Rok Says:

    Great SCREEN!!!

  59. shak_bucs Says:

    I missed you cg

  60. ElioT Says:

    That’s a first down

  61. HC Grover Says:

    take points

  62. ElioT Says:

    Bull crap challenge that!

  63. PassingThru Says:

    Tough spot, I thought Otton was over

  64. HC Grover Says:

    bowles blunder number 1bad spot too

  65. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    Bad spot, but Lenny should have gone low. Dumb running.

  66. shak_bucs Says:


  67. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Otton needed to be past the marker. Rookie mistake.

  68. Merryplankster777 Says:

    TE had a 1st… bad measurment

  69. PassingThru Says:

    Terrible spot, Fournette was over

  70. Jack Sparrow Says:

    what a waste of drive. They could have just done a QB sneak

  71. Buc1987 Says:

    Throw the challenge flag

  72. TheRealDrew Says:

    Leonard always staying upright. SMH

  73. Richard Dickson Says:

    Two terrible spots, but Fournette should have gone right, there was space there.

  74. cmurda Says:

    Awesome. Fantastic run blocking we have. We can never run the ball. Ever. Just stop. We suck royally at it. Lenny is too slow and the blocks are laughable on short yardage.

  75. Darin Says:

    Leftwich learn the QB sneak dumbass

  76. shak_bucs Says:

    Should have challenged the first one

  77. BucsFan81 Says:

    Wow just wow with this offense. It’s a bucs life!!!

  78. Jugheadfla Says:

    That was on Lenny, ran right into a pile….geez

  79. #8 Says:

    Two bad spots. O has problems in general. Not good.

  80. cmurda Says:

    wesome. Fantastic run blocking we have. We can never run the ball. Ever. Just stop. We stink royally at it. Lenny is too slow and the blocks are laughable on short yardage.

  81. unbelievable Says:

    That was a terrible spot. Right after making contact he clearly got like 12 inches further on the 2nd effort when Evans was pushing.


  82. Will Says:

    The hole was to the right but Lenny gotta hit that hard.

  83. Ash Says:

    Lenny dancing in the back instead of just bulling forward is classic Lenny sometimes I don’t get his decisions.

  84. cmurda Says:

    Awesome. Fantastic run blocking we have. We can never run the ball. Ever. Just stop. We are not good at it. Lenny is too slow and the blocks are laughable on short yardage.

  85. Defense Rules Says:

    That call was BS. The ball was clearly over the line before Fournette got pushed back.

  86. shak_bucs Says:

    Lenny can’t get an inch?

  87. Scooter Says:

    2 bad ref spots already.

  88. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Lol at this team. Seriously another slow start.

  89. HC Grover Says:

    the bowles prevent offense strikes early

  90. Coquiro Says:

    OMG playing so.soft…Man the F…Up

  91. ElioT Says:

    Man this team picks the best times to look so weak.

  92. Mississippi Buc Says:

    The hole was up the middle and Fournette chose to bounce it. He doesn’t have good vision

  93. Francisco Guzman Says:

    They better not lose this game even if they win ugly. 🤦‍♂️

  94. DmanTX Says:

    Yeah, he had that I thought. His feet made it to the where it would have been a first down and the ball was slightly forward of that. A challenge may have turned it over. Disappointing end to the drive.

  95. Kansas95Bucs Says:

    So we fighting the Falcons and the refs…..

  96. HolyBuc Says:

    Why are we so bad when it’s short? Can’t even get a few inches on a CRUCIAL 4th down??? Leftwich is such a horrible play caller.

  97. Coran Says:

    Honestly, how do you not challenge the first one, then not qb sneak (even though he’s 45 with a shoulder and finger, so I get maybe not wanting to) but then why doesn’t Lenny go between (what I think was ) Hainsey and mason, had a little hole…. also why is it always unimaginative calls. Get things moving, be creative. I get it’s inches and Lenny should get that but come on…

  98. K Says:

    That was a soft run, and bad vision too

  99. Anonymous Says:

    Terrible spot. Replay showed Lenny’s feet on yellow line.

  100. unbelievable Says:

    I agree the 1st spot was even worse tho.

  101. Casual Observer Says:

    Both the last two spots looked wrong.

  102. JL Says:

    Byron is an idiot.. run left behind ur worst olineman and right at their best d tackle. Instead of running behind mason and wirfs. Horrid

  103. HC Grover Says:

    bowles does not throw easy challenge and does not tale points….2 blunders

  104. Coran Says:

    At least the saints are losing

  105. Eckwood Says:

    Ok , now you see why Bowles struggles as a head coach ….. 1. Challenge the spot it was a first down on third down 2. Fournette is a terrible short yardage runner …… he is not an option on 4 th and 1 any high-school coach can see this …….. unbelievable!!!

  106. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Somebody cover someone!!!

  107. cmurda Says:

    Lenny = really bad choice for short yardage. His vision is meh and he’s got a very slow first step. White would be a far better choice if you don’t want Tom having to sneak it. How many times does Lenny have to be shut down on short yardage for Byron to grasp that?

  108. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Coran who cares about the saints. They’re not a player in this division. I am worried about how bad this team has looked.

  109. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Tryon is a joke

  110. ElioT Says:

    JTS not holding the edge

  111. cmurda Says:

    3rd and 9? No problem. We can’t get one yard on offense running but we can give up 16.

  112. Francisco Guzman Says:

    No spy on mariota.

  113. Da Bucs Guy Says:


  114. Coquiro Says:

    Falcons outplaing us…Unreal

  115. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team takes the attitude of the coach. They need a no nonsense guy out there.

  116. HolyBuc Says:

    Jeeeeeezzzzzzzzz D… come on! Looking soft yet again.

  117. unbelievable Says:

    Winfield playing with his hair on fire today.

    That Mariota scramble hurts

  118. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Never thought I would say this but I miss Arias play calling.

  119. unbelievable Says:

    And right as I say that, he gives up a big reception lol.

    Nice holding call tho

  120. Show Me the TDs Says:

    We suck this year. Simple as that.

  121. matthew veal Says:

    On tge 4th down short. If Bowles etc won’t listen to Eckwood, and Brady can’t sneak, then don’t run the ball.

    The offensive line isn’t there. Sorry, coaches need to face facts.

  122. Davenport Says:

    They just don’t play hard for Bowles & Leftwich. There is no excuse for the lack of intensity and focus. Obviously BA was alot better coach than he got credit for.

  123. BUCkleup Says:

    We need to wake the F up. That 4&1 will likely show who we are on O the next time we step out there. Happened too many times already this season. Getting pushed around when it counts.

  124. Jack Sparrow Says:

    we could have kept Rojo and replace Fournette. Fournette is overrated.

  125. Francisco Guzman Says:

    matthew veal enough with the OL excuses. They need to man up.

  126. Bucfan1988 Says:

    The Bucs are broken 🤷🏻‍♂️???

    Something is just totally off with this team…

  127. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Davenport the attitude of these guys players stink.

  128. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Two time loser Bowels.

  129. Coquiro Says:

    You can’t get 1 yard in 2 plays…something is very wrong w the play calling. Screen? QB sneak? Toss out? BRADY where is your head? Can’t you call a play?

  130. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Fournette will not be able to find any holes in a swiss cheese.

  131. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Don’t know why Bucs even bother, trying to run between the tackles.

  132. Arn platz Says:


  133. Francisco Guzman Says:

    If this team had real coaching they wouldn’t put up with the players BS. This team looks unmotivated which is ridiculous .

  134. HolyBuc Says:


    Its always seems like they are playing a scrimmage game.

    Obviously the coaches have no idea how to fire them up.

  135. shak_bucs Says:

    White is promising but he must hold onto the ball

  136. cmurda Says:

    Byron needs sleepless hours spent on 2 or 3 yard plays. Not runs up the middle with Lenny

  137. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Coquiro they need to get a real play caller soon.

  138. shak_bucs Says:

    So someone can get an inch or two? Ok

  139. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Tampa is where the Jets dumped their trash.

  140. BucsOs Says:

    Brady is throwing a lot of balls low and into the ground lately

  141. shak_bucs Says:

    Otton is going fine too

  142. shak_bucs Says:

    Pa all day

  143. shak_bucs Says:


  144. HC Grover Says:


  145. Listnfrmafar Says:

    BA force fed Bowels and BrainLess on the Bucs.

  146. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    If Brady would put some meat on his bones, he’d make that throw, lol

  147. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Miller is not good enough for that play. Should’ve passed to Evans

  148. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Way underthrown by Brady.

  149. HolyBuc Says:


    Cade, Ko and R-White are our secret weapons in the passing game.

  150. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Cade Otton is gonna be a good player in this league.

  151. shak_bucs Says:

    Mike goat

  152. HC Grover Says:

    Evans is just awesome

  153. BUCkleup Says:


  154. Coburn Says:

    A little behind but man two bad spots in a row

  155. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Mike is incredible

  156. shak_bucs Says:

    Dang man

  157. cmurda Says:

    More throws to Mike. Trust in him. forget about the coverage.

  158. HolyBuc Says:

    Beautiful!!! Was wondering when they were gonna get Evans in the game.

  159. shak_bucs Says:


  160. unbelievable Says:


    Also love how when our DB has a hand on a guy they’re like “yeah the defender was holding”, meanwhile Atlanta DB is mugging Evans 10 yards down the field and the announcer: “great coverage by Terrell”

  161. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Mike Evans “The Pride of Galveston”

  162. HC Grover Says:

    do they ever run right

  163. HC Grover Says:

    what a stupid play

  164. ElioT Says:

    Not a Byron fan

  165. unbelievable Says:

    How can it be 1st and 22?

    It’s a 10 yard penalty wtf?

  166. Jack Sparrow Says:

    come on scotty, i’m rooting 4 u

  167. unbelievable Says:

    Nice catch Miller

  168. ElioT Says:

    There we go!

  169. shak_bucs Says:


  170. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah baby. About time

  171. HC Grover Says:

    a rare 1st half td.. hot dog

  172. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Thank goodness. A TD !!!

  173. Francisco Guzman Says:

    What’s the injury to Evans?

  174. shak_bucs Says:

    Good job otton

  175. BUCkleup Says:

    About time. LFG

  176. HolyBuc Says:

    It’s a miracle!!! We got a TD in the first half!!!!!!

    Love it!!!!

  177. ElioT Says:

    Defense needs a turnover or a very convincing 3 & out here.

    Let’s stomp these Falcons!!

  178. CrackWise Says:

    Evans is fine.

  179. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Great job Bucs. Still this offense play calling just doesn’t look good it so predictable what Leftwitch is gonna do.

  180. BucsBro Says:

    That was a perfect Brady Ball drive.

    * Ball control
    * Mostly short gains mixed in with a shot or two over the top (Evans, Scotty)
    * Success

    This is how Brady likes to play. Brady Ball, rather than Risk It Biscuit. Short plays used to set up the long plays when the defense doesn’t expect it.

  181. Bucamania Says:

    Yay a TD. They are hard to come by this year.

  182. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    A few more happy meals, and Fournette will split the back of his pants open.

  183. LVMYBUCS Says:


  184. Walter Says:

    Lol watching Tom Brady have to walk over to Cade Otton on the line and literally yell “Hey, move over” to get him to shift to the other end of the line gave me a chuckle. Rookie’s been having a solid game though, good to see him make some clutch catches

  185. D-Rok Says:

    Bucs 176 total yards. Birds 46. Let’s go!

  186. HC Grover Says:


  187. orlbucfan Says:

    Wow, hopefully, geriatric12 will lead us to a win

  188. shak_bucs Says:

    Do we even try on 3rds?

  189. cmurda Says:

    3rd down defense Todd. Get it fixed. It’s brutal.

  190. HC Grover Says:

    plan 9 back in outer space

  191. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This defense has to learn how to get off the field on 3rd down.

  192. HolyBuc Says:

    Why can’t we stop teams on 3rd downs???

  193. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah our 3rd down defense has been very poor this season.

  194. BUCkleup Says:

    Rare to say, but White and David are doing nothing so far

  195. unbelievable Says:

    We just don’t get consistent pressure on the money down.

  196. Pat Says:

    Keanu Neal sucks. He’s slow to react

  197. Bucamania Says:

    3rd down is the money down. That’s what defines whether you’re a good D or you suck.

  198. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Another missed sack by Devon White.

  199. HC Grover Says:

    plan 9 re enters atmosphere and makes a play

  200. unbelievable Says:

    There we go.

  201. BUCkleup Says:

    Devin White overruns everything. He is like a bull. Move in any direction from the line of fire and you are fine.

  202. Jack Sparrow Says:

    they almost bungled that punt return.

  203. unbelievable Says:


  204. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oralbucs that fossil is all you have.

  205. Ash Says:

    Lmao whoa

  206. matthew veal Says:

    Good lord. Mariota throwing to franks. When they were bith gators, Franks used to throw to Pitts before Pitts got hurt.

    Maybe Mullen figure Felipe would go to another team as a te so ge wouldn’t play Trask.

    Still baffled, but Mullen is not coaching any more.

    Our coaches need to be reminded

    Stupid stuff gets you fired. In you want to be bailed out, work on wall street, not in the real world

  207. Iamabuc Says:

    F¤cking Darden!!…are you kidding me?…🤦‍♂️

  208. Anonymous Says:

    Looks like the ball hit an Atlanta player first on the kick.

  209. Ash Says:

    What was darden looking at crazy lucky on that one

  210. HC Grover Says:

    gut fer non

  211. Dooley Says:

    No flag on that punt return ATL had 2 players well inside the halo

  212. ElioT Says:

    Imagine if we could get 4 yards on a first down run?

  213. HC Grover Says:

    otten looking good

  214. unbelievable Says:

    Nice catch Gage

  215. BUCkleup Says:

    Liking the trust in 88

  216. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Brady is looking sharp. Mostly.

  217. HC Grover Says:

    brady happy

  218. PassingThru Says:

    Dumb dumb offsides

  219. BUCkleup Says:


  220. HC Grover Says:

    he thinks otton is gronk

  221. D-Rok Says:

    Good-looking drive.

  222. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Otton seems to be a promising TE.

  223. HC Grover Says:


  224. Dirty Bucs Says:

    Cade Otton needs to start.

  225. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Otton is producing.

  226. Devinwhiteshorse2 Says:

    Otten having a good game. Go Bucs!!

  227. Buc4evr Says:

    Otton is going to be a beast!

  228. D-Rok Says:

    This is what we all thought the Bucs O would look like this year. Hopefully we get some points, but dang our O looks unstoppable at the moment.

  229. BUCkleup Says:

    Groton or Ottkowski, either way, I will take it

  230. Bucanero Says:

    We have TE

  231. Devinwhiteshorse2 Says:


  232. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    And there is our new TE – everyone else move over.

  233. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Gronkotton #88

  234. Dooley Says:

    Cade Otton out here looking like his UDub tape lol

  235. HolyBuc Says:


    Been hyped about him since pre-season!

  236. Anonymous Says:

    Break out game baby! Let’s go Otton! Welcome to the NFL! White killing it too

  237. Devinwhiteshorse2 Says:

    #88 ottkowski for me

  238. Deeez NATZ Says:

    Looking like the bucs of 2020…Loving it!

  239. Coburn Says:

    But behind still but how do Falcons never get flagged? Was some serious holding on Gholston earlier and now after the play is dead on the punt some idiot comes flying in and no flag

  240. HolyBuc Says:

    Why not take 3 shots into the ENDZONE???

  241. orlbucfan Says:

    Well, I notice my groupie list… is back. Brady has got to give it up. Well, I have it on radio and old fart missed one. Same thing with CG14. I hope Brady and The other idiot get nuked. Wow, we have to kick a field goal. Brady’s team sure sucks!

  242. HolyBuc Says:

    Gage was wide open in the endzone.

  243. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Kick the fg. This offense still doesn’t look right. 5 games today in.

  244. BUCkleup Says:

    Too much stalling out in red zone. This game should be 28-0. At least 21-0.

  245. Coquiro Says:

    Man we blow inside the 20. Play calling is weak.

  246. ElioT Says:

    Byron Leftwich is unemployed without Evans, Brady & Godwin.

  247. Rod Munch Says:

    Leftwich is such an idiot. You call a screen when you think pressure is coming, and the Atlanta was literally sitting on the back to back screens, as if they knew Leftwich is an ultra predictable moron who would run a predictable play back to back.

  248. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    The refs screwed us on that. Would have been first down – too many men in the field. Clowns.

  249. HC Grover Says:


  250. PassingThru Says:

    Idiot ref

  251. HolyBuc Says:

    Byron Leftwich is the Bucs worst enemy.

  252. ElioT Says:

    14-0 would be so much better.

  253. HC Grover Says:

    refs strike again

  254. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Defense needs a stop.

  255. ElioT Says:

    Letting the Falcons hang around.

    Let’s go defense!!!!

  256. HC Grover Says:

    cam saves again

  257. Roc Says:

    Excuse Me NFL May we possibly get PROFESSIONAL REFS????

  258. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oral, points are points. Not every drive is a TD ask Roger’s

  259. shak_bucs Says:

    Camarda has to keep doing their job all while giving a good ball.

  260. BucsBro Says:

    2 consecutive perfect Brady Ball drives.

    When he has the weapons and he gets to play his style, he looks like the MVP.

    Really happy to see the rookies showing up big (Otton, White). Both are big weapons.

    The offense is finally coming out of its shell.

  261. shak_bucs Says:


  262. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Lousy SP before the end of the first half.

  263. ElioT Says:

    Byron and Bowels can’t spell SITUATIONAL

  264. Arn platz Says:

    Suh !

  265. HC Grover Says:

    holde em to 3 d

  266. Ash Says:

    It’s not halftime yet defense

  267. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team is so lazy and undisciplined. They play reckless.

  268. Ash Says:


  269. shak_bucs Says:

    Love win!

  270. ElioT Says:

    Winfield is a total beast

  271. orlbucfan Says:

    10-3. Wow. Can we get rid of BRady/Gabbert and let Trask play a little? Wow, defense is not doing well. Vita has given Atlanta a freebie. GET RID of two QBs.aka Brady/Gabbert.

  272. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Where are the fundamentals? Pin Mariotta’s arm and he doesn’t get the fumble.

  273. shak_bucs Says:

    We have the team, need more discipline.

  274. Roc Says:

    Anyone see a correlation between Raheem and Bowles Teams and their sloppy play

  275. Show Me the TDs Says:

    WE MISS ARIANS!!!! Bowels is not up to the job.

  276. Davenport Says:

    Sleepwalking through another game and staying in it because the opponent has far less talent. No fire. No passion. No intensity.

    Get ready for another soft, calm half-time talk from Bowles. Can’t wait to watch the Bucs casually stroll out of the locker room for the second half.

  277. DrunkinYbor Says:

    Pusssieast roughing call I have ever ever ever seen in my 41 years of watching football.

  278. ElioT Says:

    F U Koo!!’

  279. cmurda Says:

    Yessss. About time a non TB kicker missed in Tampa

  280. PassingThru Says:

    Dodged a bullet, Koo is good

  281. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    I say, be happy the Falcons have Mariota, and a bad kicker.

  282. shak_bucs Says:

    Boot it lol

  283. shak_bucs Says:


  284. CrackWise Says:

    Damm MILLER sucks. He just stopped his route and almost cost us an INT

  285. BigZ Says:

    67 has to get better in pass pro

  286. Rod Munch Says:

    Remarkable what happens when we just throw the ball and don’t think it’s 1955 and you must run the ball.

  287. shak_bucs Says:

    Good job! Sucky has been money

  288. HC Grover Says:

    bucs are back great 1st half

  289. ElioT Says:

    Nice job.

    Should be up 27-0 but we’ll take it.

    Let’s go!!!!

  290. Rod Munch Says:

    Mediocre first half, they should be up 24-0. If Leftwich wasn’t such a predictable idiot, that is.

  291. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @Crackwise. We need to stop targeting Miller. Brady likes to force it with Miller. It’s maddening.

  292. Francisco Guzman Says:

    HC Grover as they should. They should be clobbering this team. Later on against another legit opponent they will need a statement win.

  293. orlbucfan Says:

    So, Methusaleh12 has clean. No sacks. It’s the entire team winning this game, not BradyBucs.

  294. orlbucfan Says:

    Hey list…..Whatever, suck it, you troll.

  295. Ash Says:

    Getting kinda worried about the bucs seems like there is no fire and low energy don’t know what they need to change but hope they figure it out soon.

  296. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Rod Munch the next couple of games they should to improve on both sides of the football before they start facing legit opponents again.

  297. HolyBuc Says:

    Still can’t believe Lenny couldn’t get those 6 inches, but otherwise he had a great first half. Cade had a phenomenal first half and looks like a young Gronk in the making. R.White and Godwin were awesome! Just wish we played with more fire in the first quarter. Always seems like it takes us a quarter or two too really come alive. But fairly solid game so far. GO BUCS!

  298. Rod Munch Says:

    Francisco Guzman – Yeah, I agree, they should be 5-2 in a few weeks and should use these next few games to get the offense in a grove. This is the cupcake part of the schedule so they need to use it wisely.

  299. BucsBro Says:

    Nearly a perfect half of football despite the slow start for the offense.

    Now we are playing how Brady wants to play, and guys are making plays on offense. Almost 300 yards of offense there.

    Brady Ball also helps the defense. Unlike Risk It, Biscuit it lets the defense rest more and be fresher. We won Time Of Possession by like 6 minutes in the first half.

    Once Brady has better feel with guys in the Red Zone, we’ll get even more scores and his QB Rating will go even higher.

    This is how we beat Mahomes in the Super Bowl. Keep him off the field, get a greater TOP, and wear down their defense.

    Things are finally starting to come together.

  300. JimmyJack Says:

    This offense has got a ways to go. The first 20 minutes was a goosegg. That works against Atlanta. We saw last week how that works agsinst top tier teams.

    3rd-1 & 4th-1 have to be converted if you want to be a Championship Offense. You could make a case inabilty to get 1 yard when needed has taken a full 24 points(by my count) off the scoreboard this season.

    The good news is this offense does look like they are starting to click with Otton and White becoming key role players. If this OL can get better and better opnening holes for our Running game then look the hell out.

    I really have no comment for the defense. No idea what Atlantas gameplan is and how they expected this to work. I was expecting all this dual threat run game and misdirection options. Thought it would be a good test for the D. Its laughable they are trying to beat us with Mariota working the pocket. Yall that wanna ride on playcallers need to look at Atlanta to what what bad playcalling actually looks like. Then get on your knees and be thankful we got Byron.

    Enjoy the 2nd hald boys!!!

  301. Brad Says:

    time to look for a trade at LG. He’s brutal. he’s a rookie, but we don’t have that time. doesn’t seem like he’s getting better at all

  302. JimmyJack Says:

    Also i was hoping we would look for a biscuit on that last play. But thats OK Byron gonna save it for a big moment. Cant wait.

  303. Bucschamp Says:

    We look better this time. Of course, we played trash last time

  304. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Carlton Davis always give up that cushion when the opposing team has a penalty.

  305. HC Grover Says:

    cmon d stop em

  306. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Un freaking believable.

  307. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Awful defense!!

  308. Richard Dickson Says:

    Let them out of 3rd and 11 on a damn swing pass.

  309. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Our tackling us the worst!!! Hit someone!!

  310. unbelievable Says:

    So did the defense stay inside the Locke room after half time or what?

  311. Trask To The Future Says:


  312. Rod Munch Says:

    Glad we got 400lb Vita out there in the middle to stuff stuff like that.

  313. David Says:

    Great first half. Even though you wouldn’t know it by you miserable fans. Really, it’s pathetic how much you complain and whine.
    The running game, the passing game, the defense and special teams all look good. JTS haters will find something to complain about. Lol.
    Quite honestly, the only reason they don’t have another TD instead of a field goal is because twice the refs said they didn’t get a first down on third and fourth and short when they actually did.

    Anyway, I am out of here during games for a while because you people are miserable. You expect 63-0 with every play being absolutely perfect every game.
    Enjoy complaining,

  314. HC Grover Says:


  315. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Bye David

  316. Rod Munch Says:

    Francisco Guzman – It’s not the player who decides to play 15 yards off the ball, that’s the idiot coaches who tell them to line up that way. If the coaches wanted them up close, they’d just tell them to get up close.

  317. Show Me the TDs Says:

    I agree Rob. Vea is a very large sloth.

  318. HolyBuc Says:

    Our D is so hit and miss. No consistency.

  319. HC Grover Says:

    7 now

  320. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Tackling is simple. Hit and wrap up. Make impact. This is the reason the Saints give us so much trouble. They always hit, hard. The Bucs…meh.

  321. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Darden – questionable decision again. And Would love to see him NOT run about of bounds sometime.

    O and D look great though!

  322. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Jaedon “sidelines” Darden ladies and gentlemen.

  323. HC Grover Says:


  324. HC Grover Says:

    that mason is a good player

  325. unbelievable Says:

    Come on Mike!

  326. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Get a damn yard

  327. shak_bucs Says:

    Dang how did he get stopped

  328. shak_bucs Says:

    Keep churning white

  329. Dooley Says:

    Big Mike!!! Also White & Otton are putting in work today

  330. Rod Munch Says:

    That’s a TD you idiot refs.

  331. shak_bucs Says:

    Easily a td

  332. Rod Munch Says:

    Clear as f-ing day that’s a TD.

  333. Roc Says:


    ITS TIME !!!!!

  334. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    When Sidelines Darden runs out of bounds, everyone take a drink. Who’s in?

  335. HC Grover Says:

    refs cheating

  336. Rod Munch Says:

    WHAT THE F-!?!?!

  337. CrackWise Says:

    What happened to calling a close play a TD and letting the booth review all scoring plays?

  338. Deeez NATZ Says:

    Big Mike,greatest bucs receiver ever,PROUD OF YOU MIKEY,A MAN AMONGST BOYS!

  339. CrackWise Says:

    You can see the shadow of his hand right over the top of the pylon

  340. Francisco Guzman Says:

    These refs are so incompetent it’s ridiculous.

  341. Rod Munch Says:


    What pieces of complete and total s—.

  342. Trask To The Future Says:

    Some of you need glasses, the ball was clearly out of bounds and never held over the pylon.

  343. Jack Sparrow Says:

    It put a smile on my face……

  344. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask – go eat an ebola pecker you POS, that was a TD.

  345. HC Grover Says:

    chicks have too many men on field every play. 11 players and at least 2 refs

  346. Jack Sparrow Says:

    but but but…. these are the lowly Falcons,,, we should be 48-0 by now….

  347. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Great job Bucs. Still hate Leftwitch play calling it just to traditional and predictable. Go Bucs

  348. Trask To The Future Says:


    AARP should take away your drivers license because you’re blind. Evans was pushed out of bounds and reached after outside the pylon. Never gets the ball over pylon.

  349. ElioT Says:

    Let’s go defense!!!

    Stomp this team!!!!

  350. Bucschamp Says:

    2 pt conversion means bucs now toying Dixie chicks

  351. CrackWise Says:

    The shadow of his hand over the pylon tells me it was TO CLOSE to not call it a TD on the field.

    Not that the ref would have saw the shadow BUT that was WAY TO CLOSE to not call it a TD on the field and have the booth review it.

    That is what they are supposed to do.

    OH WELL, we scored anyways.

  352. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Woodshed game so far – go Bucs!

    Ready for my sidelines Darden shot coming soon.

  353. HolyBuc Says:


    Love that Miller, Cade and R.White are having solid games today besides our big name receivers–who are doing fantastic today.

  354. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Time for the defense to get a stop.

  355. Deeez NATZ Says:

    Don’t understand why you are saying the play calling is predictable, they are smoking them! Bryon deserves credit where it’s due

  356. Arn platz Says:


  357. Trask To The Future Says:

    Crack – was definitely close but since it wasn’t called on the field the review was the proper call with it being inconclusive.

  358. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Can someone keep a spy on Mariota?

  359. Arn platz Says:


  360. Arn platz Says:


  361. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Thank goodness Hall held him up so DWhite didn’t run past him.😂😂😂

  362. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oral, correct and Brady is on the team. You must be a child who wants a flashy losing Murray, Jackson type.

  363. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Falcons need to make it closer, for the tv ratings, lol

    But, don’t look like it will happen.

  364. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Oral, FYI, we’ve seen Trask in action, he ain’t that good!!!

  365. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Let’s get another drive here. I just wanna see good consistency from this offense.

  366. Msr76 Says:


  367. Rod Munch Says:

    Fournette is going to have like 15 receptions today.

  368. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Bucs still can’t get a push on this OL when it comes to the running game.

  369. Ash Says:

    Hmm interesting

  370. HC Grover Says:

    uggh run left again uggh BL reverted to prevent offense

  371. Show Me the TDs Says:

    The “Shell” offense makes it’s 1st appearance.

  372. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s remarkable how other teams returners are allowed to run forward when fielding punts, like they don’t have to just stop in place and wait to be tackled. It’s really an unfair advantage of them.

  373. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Why are we hurrying up on offense lol. Makes no sense.

  374. ElioT Says:

    Nobody calls plays like Byron the Bozo

  375. shak_bucs Says:

    Trash tackling all day. We’ve lost our disciplined ways.

  376. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Waste of a drive. 🤦‍♂️. This is the problem with the Bucs. Inconsistency on both sides. They will get away with it against these lousy teams.

  377. HC Grover Says:

    prevent offense rears its ugly head

  378. HolyBuc Says:

    Leftwich’s horrible play call strikes again.

  379. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Lovely special teams lol.

  380. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m quick to blame idiot Leftwich for his awful calls, but on that series, Brady was checking out really quick. I wonder if he’s more hurt than we know, because he wasn’t really giving a chance for the play to develop before dumping it off, and on 3rd down gave up on the play very early. That seems like something someone does if they’re hurt, know they have a big lead, and doesn’t want to take a hit when it’s not needed.

  381. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Dean stands there waiting for the RB to get to him..🤔

  382. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Defense Overdue for takeaway. Let’s go!

  383. Show Me the TDs Says:

    This game isn’t over.

  384. Rod Munch Says:

    Vita isn’t even in the game. Jesus. The guy is such a part time player.

  385. shak_bucs Says:

    Yeah, no discipline.

  386. PassingThru Says:

    Special Teams is still “special “

  387. Jmarkbuc Says:

    This game isn’t over.

  388. Ash Says:

    Gotta have the want to to tackle it seems game isn’t over yet

  389. HolyBuc Says:

    Our invincible run defense!!!

  390. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Show me…

    Great minds😂

  391. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Getting sloppy

  392. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Wow…I stop in to see how fans are reacting…and I see nothing but negative after a scoring drive and a successful 2-point conversion.

    Some things never change.

  393. ModHairKen Says:

    Damn. People. This is a blowout. Stop nitpicking every tiny detail.

  394. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai cause you see the same inconsistent BS. The falcons are a joke.

  395. Jack Sparrow Says:

    I can see now that our bucs offense will be in a prevent injury mode starting 4th qrtr. So expect a lot of punts…

  396. Francisco Guzman Says:

    ModHairKen winning by 21 is not a blowout and if you don’t see the inconsistency in this offense idk what to tell you.

  397. HC Grover Says:

    do not let them back in with more coaching blunders

  398. Rod Munch Says:

    Running right up the middle where Vita is supposed to be, but he’s too overweight and winded to be on the field in crunch time.

  399. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Sheesh, Francisco Guzman, take a win when you get it. Our team gets better as the season goes on. Things are better this week then last week, and our last two games were against really good teams.

    Sure there is inconsistency. Most teams have it.

  400. Jmarkbuc Says:

    There ya go Bonzai.

  401. HC Grover Says:

    good grief look what reversion to the prevent offense does….coaching blunder

  402. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Let’s see how the offense responds to that td.

  403. Rod Munch Says:

    GOD DAM— THESE F—ING REFS, that’s as blatant of a hold as you’ll ever see, and nothing?!?! FUC— YOU

  404. Richard Dickson Says:

    Blatant holding on that one but hey, they’re losing so let’s eat the flag.

  405. Jack Sparrow Says:

    i thought the bucs are the best run defense…. huh smh….

  406. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Winfield was held like a MFer!

  407. HolyBuc Says:

    The inconsistency in both our offense and defense’s play is FRUSTRATING.

    We’ve had great play today, and poor play. Just wish it wasn’t so hit and miss, up and down.

    And our D has been terrible today on 3rd downs and money plays.

  408. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai that’s bs dude lol. You need to know about football. This team still look lazy.

  409. Rod Munch Says:

    Jesus Christ, the Glazers need to stop being so g-d cheap and get their checks into the refs.

  410. Pat Says:

    LVD looks like a little boy. He’s either hurt or finished. He looks like crap

  411. Pat Says:

    LVD looks like a little boy. He’s either hurt or finished.

  412. HC Grover Says:

    bowles better not blow a 21 point 4th quarter lead with more blunders

  413. DrunkinYbor Says:

    It’s easy to score when the refs blatantly disregard a obvious egregious holding call on Windield.

  414. HC Grover Says:

    NO to prevent offense

  415. 74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Thumper Keano Neal with a complete whiff at the goal line. Let’s score some more bros!

  416. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Need the offense to put together a nice long time consuming drive. Defense needs a little breather.

  417. Pat Says:

    A team with a good tight end like Kelce can destroy us and a team that can run the ball also can destroy us. This is not going to end well this year

  418. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This is where you wanna see your offense march down the field and score 7.

  419. Rod Munch Says:

    How much you want to bet this drive ends on a completely BS call by the refs?

  420. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Francisco Guzman, lol.

    Yeah, okay.

  421. Rod Munch Says:

    I think Brady’s hand is hurting him quite a bit, these are not typical Brady passes.

  422. HC Grover Says:

    missed paynebt to the ref benevolent fund

  423. Francisco Guzman Says:


  424. shak_bucs Says:

    Lol IKYFL offense

  425. Jack Sparrow Says:

    see…. prevent injury mode….. punt !

  426. HC Grover Says:

    Prevent offense could lose this game

  427. ElioT Says:

    Great series guys!!!

    Thank you Byron!!! Freaking genius

  428. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Falcons get the ball back quickly.

  429. TampaNative Says:

    Like no call on Winstead hold during the ATL TD?

  430. Rod Munch Says:

    Of course the refs didn’t call it, they’re f—ing idiots who are clearly paid off.

  431. Ash Says:


  432. Tackleblockwin Says:

    And sloppiness continues.

  433. Roc Says:

    What happened to the other thread

  434. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Ha ha.
    Joe shut down the early victory thread.
    It ain’t over……ever with this team.
    Don’t EVER do that again Joe.

  435. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Such a mediocre team.

  436. ElioT Says:

    How bad is Byron Leftwich?

    I’m done with this Bozo.

  437. DoooshLaRue Says:


    Joe realized his mistake.

  438. Roc Says:

    B R U C E. N O W !!!!!!!

  439. HolyBuc Says:

    BACK-TO-BACK 3-AND-OUTS. Something’s not working.

  440. PassingThru Says:

    Obvious missed holding call

  441. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This is all coaching. I wish we could get a whole new coaching staff.

  442. Coquiro Says:

    Stop w the dam underneath passes Brady.

  443. HC Grover Says:

    nother bad call throw the red flag blunder man

  444. matthew veal Says:

    I wish Joe could have tge like dislike and response feature on the comments. Since he doesn’t. Here goes.

    I like the milk carton and bus ticket comments

  445. unbelievable Says:

    So we just quit for the 4th quarter?

  446. Rod Munch Says:

    Biggest play of the day for Vita.

  447. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Lucky they’re playing a lousy Falcons team today.

  448. HC Grover Says:

    vv strikes

  449. Roc Says:

    About Time Vita

  450. Rod Munch Says:

    HEY! Vita made 2 plays on that drive. Give him the next 2 series off!

  451. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Breaking news,,, Byron leftwich telling offense dont bother to hassle. We will just punt the ball.

  452. BigZ Says:

    V2 is playing today.

  453. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Mr. Sideline strikes again!

  454. shak_bucs Says:

    The Day he doesn’t go to the sidelines is the day he’ll get a td

  455. HC Grover Says:

    no prevent offense

  456. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Jaelon, the sideline is my friend, Darlen. What a whimp.

  457. Roc Says:

    Joe the thread thing was Kinda Funny

  458. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m a bit concerned about Brady. I love to bash Leftwich because he’s a moron and deserves it, but Brady is bailing really fast on these plays. His hand must be killing him, because he doesn’t want to come even close to getting hit, and some of these passes are really ugly. If we get a score on this drive then you can take Brady out for the rest of this game.

  459. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Go get Suh. Go Bucs

  460. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Maybe we can get a first down now and waste a little clock. But probably not lol.

  461. HC Grover Says:

    do not run left up the gut

  462. Rod Munch Says:

    This is actually a drive where I’d be OK with running, Brady doesn’t want to pass right now, so do what Brady wants.

  463. HC Grover Says:

    he did it…left up the gut amazing

  464. Roc Says:


    Dumb Hicks and Rudolph

  465. Rod Munch Says:

    Gage dropped that? Ugh. That looked like an easy catch.

  466. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Rod I agree about Brady.

  467. ElioT Says:

    Fire Byron Leftwich

  468. HC Grover Says:

    prevent offense in its full glory. fire these idiot coaches

  469. Jack Sparrow Says:

    YES !!!! I Love PUNTS !!!!! Thanks BL .. smh

  470. Trask To The Future Says:


  471. Richard Dickson Says:

    What the hell is this playcalling?

  472. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Another 3 and out by this offense. Sure this offense is fine.

  473. Rod Munch Says:

    That was not a good read and throw by Brady. He’s clearly hurt.

  474. SKBucsFan Says:

    Put some effort out Offense!

  475. BucsFan81 Says:

    Full Turtle for the offense.

  476. HolyBuc Says:

    THIRD 3-AND-OUT!!!??? WTF!!!???

  477. shak_bucs Says:

    Our offense is still bad but people will claim it isn’t. Was mediocre last week and ok this week.

  478. Kansas95Bucs Says:

    Man wtf is going on right now?

  479. Will Says:

    This offense is starting to have troubles

  480. LVMYBUCS Says:

    The play calling is just dumb.

  481. Roc Says:

    Did hit punter

    Umm these commentators are blind like the REFS

  482. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Rod Munch what’s the issue? What’s with the hand?

  483. HolyBuc Says:

    I thought we were a strong second half team! Not today!

  484. BigZ Says:

    Too many mental errors and not a lot of want too. Still have not played a complete game.

  485. shak_bucs Says:


  486. Rod Munch Says:

    It really wasn’t turtle mode on the last series, it was run, pass, pass. But Brady is bailing early on these passes, not giving them a chance to develop. Also you have idiot Gage dropping yet another pass. The 3rd down pass to Evans was not a good play, he wasn’t open and wouldn’t have had the 1st down, but Brady threw it anyways, again, he doesn’t look right at all.

  487. unbelievable Says:

    Hall has gotta make that tackle.

    Offense is back to looking pathetic

  488. Rod Munch Says:

    Francisco Guzman – Yeah, it looks like he hurt his hand again earlier in the game, and he’s clearly not gripping the ball right, getting nothing on his throws, and getting rid of it really fast so he’s not getting hit.

  489. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team is poorly coached.

  490. HC Grover Says:

    i was enjoying this game til bowles and nyron went in to the Blunder Bois plan

  491. HolyBuc Says:

    Would hate to see what this game would be like today if Atlanta had Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Pitts.

  492. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Keep in mind that Atlanta is missing their best tight end as well.

  493. Trask To The Future Says:


  494. Richbucsfan Says:

    Pathetic o and D. The Falcons will win if the Bucs don’t wake up.

  495. Rod Munch Says:

    Just keep the pressure on Atlanta, they’ll crumble, will give up a big play.

  496. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Wow if the falcons score here.

  497. shak_bucs Says:

    So this is D?

  498. Jmarkbuc Says:

    So this D has given up 150 yds rushing, 189 last week.

  499. HC Grover Says:

    Can Bowles pull out a last minute loss?

  500. Jugheadfla Says:

    Why zone? They aren’t good enough to play it….

  501. Arn platz Says:

    Lichts schedule tomorrow

    6am wake up

  502. Roc Says:

    A lot of injuries

    Soft Play

    No Hussle

    Bowles = RAHEEM

  503. shak_bucs Says:


  504. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Piece of cake Joe.
    We got it in the bag Joe.
    We’re world beaters again Joe.

    Thanks Jinx Joe.

  505. Jack Sparrow Says:

    yes !! falcons TD !!!

  506. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team is awful on 3rd down defensively .

  507. ElioT Says:

    This team deserves to lose.

  508. Richbucsfan Says:

    Allowing Marietta to beat them is HUMILIATED!

  509. shak_bucs Says:

    Bucs back to buccin

  510. T REX Says:

    What a joke…staff is complete garbage

  511. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Where ya at Bonzai?

  512. Rod Munch Says:

    To the retards who were asking why were were made the team wasn’t up 34-0 instead of 21-0, this is why you idiots.

  513. HolyBuc Says:


    Two great drives where they seem unstoppable, followed up by 3 straight 3-n-outs.

    Same with the D. They’re all over the place, too. Can’t get a 3rd down stop today.

  514. Richbucsfan Says:

    Allowing Marietta to beat them is HUMILIATING!

  515. Faspro Says:

    The yucs are back!!

  516. unbelievable Says:

    This team is so pathetic to watch.

    Playing down to the level of every opponent.

  517. HC Grover Says:


    Bowles can blunder like this, can he go all the way?

  518. Richard Dickson Says:

    This is all on the offense. We can’t have three consecutive 3-and-outs like that.

  519. Rod Munch Says:


  520. Trask To The Future Says:


  521. Defense Rules Says:

    That’s what a defense that has insufficient DEPTH looks like. And what they perform like in the 4th quarter. They’re all bushed, and playing like it.

  522. Dooley Says:

    Last 3 offensive drives barely totals 3 minutes off the clock and guys are going down all over the defensive backfield. What the hell are they doing?

  523. Jmarkbuc Says:

    That’s three secondary out…

  524. Arn platz Says:

    Hope Licht has Suh on speed dial

  525. BigZ Says:

    This game should not be this close. They had chances to close it out but didn’t go for the kill. We’ll see if they can do it now with more pressure. This will all about execution.

  526. LVMYBUCS Says:


  527. Ash Says:

    This team with no juice at home is troubling

  528. unbelievable Says:

    The worst “playoff contender” I’ve ever seen.

    And here come the injuries. Davis, SMB, Edwards

  529. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Mike edwards injured as well? I wonder what this team does every week in preparation?

  530. Roc Says:

    Bruce just left the office he Broke his IPad

  531. BUCkleup Says:

    Fire Bowles and Leftwich

  532. bucnut2 Says:

    This is a REALLY poorly coached team.

  533. Jack Sparrow Says:

    YES !!! Great job Falcons !!! show Todd Bowlea and Sandwich how to win !!!!

  534. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Gotta learn to close out game’s. Defense, offense, and ST all playing terrible for over a quarter now.

  535. Trask To The Future Says:


  536. BucsFan81 Says:

    Defense is in full turtle mode now also. To struggle against a team that basically has no super stars is ridiculous. Win or lose they should be ashamed. Forget Super Bowl this team is not even a playoff team.

  537. T REX Says:

    Bucs are NOT super bowl contenders

    PRETENDERS and a joke on defense

    Falcons are horrible.

    You peiople are dreaming if you think this team is a contender

  538. unbelievable Says:

    P A T H E T I C

  539. BUCkleup Says:

    What a joke

  540. Francisco Guzman Says:

    I am sick of hearing about Suh. How about a new coaching staff?

  541. Rod Munch Says:

    So on a 2 point conversion, Bowles decides that’s the time to not bring pressure and to play soft? Jesus H Christ…

  542. Richard Dickson Says:

    The best way to maintain a lead is to build it. Just run your offense. Who cares if it doesn’t run clock? Points matter more than time.

  543. ElioT Says:

    I’m sure Byron has something dialed up here.

    Something genius.

  544. Pat Says:

    The verdict is in. As expected, this defense sucks. It just took a month to figure it out.

  545. Will Says:

    Can the offense put together a drive in the 4th

  546. Roc Says:


  547. cmurda Says:

    OK Wow!!!!

  548. BigZ Says:

    D has been on the field a lot this quarter. Atl has had good play calling and execution. We have not.

  549. BUCkleup Says:

    We deserve to lose. Joke of a team right now. Can’t finish anything. Left 3-4 scores out there

  550. Bangkok Buc Says:

    D is playing soft but maybe Brady could get a 1st down or two and give them a breather. 3 x 3 & outs is not acceptable

  551. PassingThru Says:

    Need a more aggressive offensive play calls

  552. EA Says:

    This team gave up once they went up 21-0, especially the offense, now defense lost 3 DBs, very poorly coached.

  553. Trask To The Future Says:


  554. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Our boys should be blowing this team out, but unfortunately they still have yet to put a complete game together !!! 21-0 to 21-15 and the recipe for any team is just run and watching that last drive ( no pressure) and wouldn’t be surprised if they go 4 and out on offense and the Falcons win.. Very impressed with the Dirty Birds and still not with my team the Bucs

  555. Francisco Guzman Says:

    How do you allow the two point conversion? The attitude of this team stinks!

  556. Richbucsfan Says:

    Now the offense will have another 3 and out using 25 seconds

  557. HC Grover Says:

    BBB Blundering Bolwes

  558. T REX Says:

    Byron calling another 3 and out

    Leftwich is such trash

  559. Jugheadfla Says:

    Our defense takes on the personality of our coach….a soft turd

  560. Rod Munch Says:

    Lets just go down, get a score, then get the Falcons to turn it over and return it for a TD and blow out the final mins of the game, and most importantly cover the spread.

    Of course with an idiot coaching staff they’re likely going to now just try to run out the clock.

  561. BigZ Says:

    D still lacks pass rush. Too many dropbacks wo pressure.

  562. unbelievable Says:

    That’s why “contender” was in quotes, genius.

  563. mark2001 Says:

    If this team doesn’t make the playoffs, Bowles won’t be the HC here next year. We will be a rebuild mode.

  564. Jeff Says:

    It’s needs to be said: TODD BOWLES IS CLUELESS! I told everyone this would happen! Bowles is a FOOL!

  565. BUCkleup Says:

    Licht in the shorts when we are at home

  566. Will Says:

    Don’t start with a run to the left

  567. Trask To The Future Says:


  568. Francisco Guzman Says:

    The pressure is on the Bucs now to finish this thanks to their incompetence.

  569. K2 Says:

    Byron may be the worst play caller in the NFL!

  570. BucU Says:

    T Rex I think it’s pretty obvious this team is not a SB contender at this time. Just basing it on 5 games played. I’m less impressed every week since week 1. Win or lose they’re a huge disappointment so far.

  571. Rod Munch Says:

    How did the Falcons not know that was going to be a run up the middle? Wow, what idiots.

  572. Trask To The Future Says:


  573. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Francisco because we have Todd and others coaching !!!

  574. BigZ Says:

    That’s want too nice run.

  575. BUCkleup Says:

    I don’t care what we do on this drive. We are poorly coached.

  576. JimbobBucfan Says:

    THIS IS THE NFL, which stands for “Not for Long!”

    Not too late for the Bucs to learn!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!

  577. HC Grover Says:

    noooooo nooooo left up the gut aaarrrrgh

  578. Roc Says:


  579. Rod Munch Says:

    Yep, coward Bowles and his idiot sidekick Leftwich are going to try to run out the clock. How often does that work?

  580. HolyBuc Says:


    I can’t believe how many injuries they have over and over and over

  581. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Biwels is obviously in way over his head. He thought wins would simply be gifted to him, same as his job was.

  582. bucnut2 Says:

    NOW we’re running. IF we had done that earlier game would be over.

  583. Dooley Says:

    Lol @ Will

    Would you rather we pass and stop the clock for ATL? Maybe another sub 60 second drive?

  584. Show Me the TDs Says:


  585. unbelievable Says:

    Outscored15-7 in 2nd half so far.


  586. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Throw the ball downfield!!!!!!

  587. Rod Munch Says:

    Just look at how Brady is throwing the ball, everything is short, and they’re ugly passes, ball is wobbling. He’s clearly not right.

  588. BUCkleup Says:

    Saved by refs

  589. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Next up. A run

  590. Roc Says:

    Injuries are because we have a Player friend coach

    Soft practice

    Soft training

    Be a friend

    If we win more than 6 this year I will be surprised

  591. BigZ Says:

    Pass pro on 3 step drop sux
    67 is no bueno in pass pro

  592. Will Says:

    No I’d rather them not do the predictable run to the left on 1st down

  593. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Haha. This offense is so obvious.

  594. bucnut2 Says:

    refs bailed us out

  595. HC Grover Says:

    stuck on leftwich up the gut

  596. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Got bailed out.

  597. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Run on 2nd, then a pass

  598. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Rod Munch let’s see what he says in the press conference after the game.

  599. bucnut2 Says:

    This team is goin nowhere even thought we have the goat

  600. Rod Munch Says:


  601. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Or throw it away. Whatever

  602. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    This defense is predictable. Bowles blitzes in the same situations. Offensive coordinators are able to game plan for it. This team is out coached again.

  603. bucnut2 Says:

    Why not run the ball??? second and 5

  604. HC Grover Says:

    hello there is a red flag in yer pocket dummy

  605. BigZ Says:


  606. unbelievable Says:

    That’s pass interference you worthless chit-brained zebras!

  607. BigZ Says:

    67 again

  608. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Looks like the glazers checks just cleared in the refs checking account!

  609. unbelievable Says:

    Make up call

  610. Trask To The Future Says:


  611. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This is getting scary right now. If they lose this game

  612. bucnut2 Says:

    Refs bail us out again.

  613. Ash Says:

    Where is the fla

  614. EA Says:

    Garbage call

  615. T REX Says:

    horrible call

  616. bucnut2 Says:

    Goedeke needs to go

  617. Trask To The Future Says:


  618. Rod Munch Says:

    That was a makeup call for the last BS non-call.

  619. Dooley Says:

    Falcons defense keeps gifting us yardage with theses penalties. Run it down to the 2 minute, if we can’t punch it into the paint kick the field goal and get us tf outta here!!

  620. Jugheadfla Says:

    Do we not have a 3 step drop play? Why is everything 7 step?

  621. unbelievable Says:

    Terrible penalty, but I’ll take it after the blown PI call

    At least the announces recognizing how awful these chit-brained zebras are.

  622. Show Me the TDs Says:

    That was a BS call!!! Holy vrap all he did was tackle Brady

  623. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Amy real Bucs fan knows this team isn’t very good and got saved by the refs !!! Hats off to Atlanta for not quitting and showing just how overrated our team is

  624. DoooshLaRue Says:

    How lucky can we get?

  625. EA Says:

    3 awful calls in a row by refs

  626. CrackWise Says:

    Should of be a PI

    BUT no way that was a roughing the passer.


  627. Will Says:

    That was a make up for the missed PI on Miller

  628. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This line is gonna get Brady killed.

  629. CrackWise Says:

    These officials SUCK

  630. Don Says:

    I guess Glazer wrote that check to zebras

  631. Roc Says:

    These commentators SUCK

    REALLY nothing about pass interference
    But call Refs on that

    One sided Azz

  632. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Terrible call. We don’t deserve to win today.

  633. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    Refs are terrible.

  634. HC Grover Says:

    tha announcers are too much

  635. Hondo Says:

    Bucs don’t deserve to win this game.

  636. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team really has a lot of issues. It’s sad how they looked today.

  637. ElioT Says:

    Byron Leftwich is a total joke.

  638. HolyBuc Says:

    Bucs saved by 2 bad calls. LOL.

  639. JimbobBucfan Says:


    N F L! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  640. PassingThru Says:

    Terrible calls. That wasn’t roughing the passer… and it was pass interference on the previous play

  641. bucnut2 Says:

    This coaching staff is stupid.

  642. Rod Munch Says:

    OMG shutup you idiots on TV. That call doesn’t happen if they call the Scotty Miller call, it was a makeup call for blowing the previous one. Stop acting like the Bucs got a gift, they got screwed, they should have had 1st down at like the 15.

  643. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    The NFL is fixed and like I said you don’t have to be a football novice to realize our team isn’t very good and Atlanta deserves to win this game !!!! Fire Todd and Byron now !!!!

  644. This is a bad team Says:

    Fire Bowles and Leftnut

  645. Francisco Guzman Says:

    This team needs a coach that doesn’t take bs from none of these players.

  646. Show Me the TDs Says:

    Please fire Bowels and beg Arians to come back. The season isn’t lost yet

  647. Rudy Says:

    No reason to cry about that 15 yard penalty. Coulda been a 40 yarder against Scotty on that pass interference no call the play before

  648. SKBucsFan Says:

    We will take the weak Roughing the passer after the missed Pass interference the play before.

  649. PassingThru Says:

    I hate the play calls. Bucs playing not to lose

  650. Merryplankster777 Says:

    Refs are the 13th man

  651. LVMYBUCS Says:

    This not a good team under Bowls

  652. Hondo Says:


  653. mark2001 Says:

    Must be a bunch of Falcons fan on this tread. Miller was hit a full second before the pass and driven out of bounds. And no call. But silence, but for the call against Atlanta. Losers.

  654. bucnut2 Says:

    The Offense FINALLY makes a play!

  655. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Could they lose to Pittsburgh next week on the road? Anything is possible with this team.

  656. shak_bucs Says:

    M1k3 is goat

  657. ElioT Says:

    Tainted victory if it happens.

    This Bucs team is weak.

  658. bucnut2 Says:

    The falcons are MUCH better coached than the BUCS!!

  659. Jack Sparrow Says:

    These are the lowly falcons and we cannot convincingly beat them…. I have no confidence right now with my beloved Bucs team.

  660. Rod Munch Says:

    ElioT – Go stick your face in a blender, cupcake.

  661. Pat Says:

    This Bucs defense is soft and too small. They have been exposed.

  662. bucnut2 Says:

    The flacons deserve to win this game.

  663. HC Grover Says:

    3 knees and a fg?

  664. Bucfan Says:

    That personal Foul against Jarrett was one of the biggest BS calls I have ever seen and I am a huge Bucs fan. Wow!

  665. Cobraboy Says:

    Who are worse


    Talking heads?

    Buc coaching?

  666. Richbucsfan Says:

    Def NOT a playoff team. A pretender not contender.

  667. JeffreyLane77 Says:

    Maybe the refs are calling that spin the qb to the ground now? It’s how Tua got hurt? It’s a crap roughing the passer penalty.

    And I guess the refs aren’t calling that pass interference because the defender is turned around? Also a crap call.

  668. CrackWise Says:

    So, the play clock was ahead of the game close by a half a second. WHY did the let us take it to the Two-minute warning there?

    Someone said it earlier. The NFL needed this game to be close for ratings.

    Such a strange game. Feels FAKE!!!

  669. BucsFan81 Says:

    We need Bruce Arians back. Him stepping down was a huge mistake. Bowles is nothing but a DC and that’s all he ever will be. Not head coach material.

  670. LVMYBUCS Says:

    I can’t see this team doing anything this year I hope I’m wrong but they just don’t look good under Bowles

  671. DoooshLaRue Says:

    They were both bad calls/non-calls Mark.
    Doesn’t mean you’re a Falcons fan to point that out.

  672. shak_bucs Says:

    One ref vs the other, both hand money on a team. Someone had to lose.

  673. Dapostman Says:

    The NFL to the Bucs:

    Memo Oct 9, 2022
    You will make the playoffs no matter what.

    End of quote

  674. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Yeah officiating has been pure garbage in this game….

    Bad call in Brady sack and then crap call on OBVIOUS PI with Scotty Miller…..

    Sick of watching non-PI calls happening against Miller this year….

    Also Brady needs to throw the ball DEEPER on Miller’s routes…
    He’s had his guy beat twice and Brady’s short throw forces Miller to have to stop and come back to the ball…

  675. Rod Munch Says:

    Francisco Guzman – As long as the Bucs win here, I wouldn’t worry too much about this. The Bucs were controlling the game until Brady started bailing on everything and throwing ugly passes. Brady is a gamer, so here in crunch time he’ll make plays, but I’m certain we’re going to hear his hand is going to make him questionable for next week and I doubt he practices. We shall see.

  676. Francisco Guzman Says:

    One thing i don’t wanna hear is about refs. The refs are inconsistent. They missed calls for us as well.

  677. Anonymous Says:

    Sack on Brady looked like the same tackle on Tua last week.

  678. Roc Says:

    PI. Not called

  679. CrackWise Says:

    Yeah I just rewatched it. The game clock was 2:36 and the play clock was 35 seconds

  680. HolyBuc Says:

    @Jack Sparrow

    These are the lowly Falcons (without 6 of their VIP starters) and we cannot convincingly beat them

  681. Rod Munch Says:

    We’re just taking a knee? I need these idiots to cover!

  682. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    Refs won this game. Not the Bucs.

  683. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Rod Munch the problem is this team did not look good once again. I am still not a fan of this coaching staff. I have kept saying time and time again. Bowles is a players coach. Friendly and nice. This team needs a disciplinarian .

  684. Roc Says:

    I Hope these commentators have a safe trip back to Atlanta

  685. unbelievable Says:

    Ugly win. Pathetic 2nd half. More terrible officiating.

  686. Coquiro Says:


  687. Will Says:

    Ugly game
    This team still has a lot to improve on

  688. Jack Sparrow Says:

    bowles and leftwich sucks !!!

  689. Francisco Guzman Says:

    I wonder if trolls are here pretending to be bucs fan talking about the refs like they didn’t screw the Bucs as well in this game.

  690. Rod Munch Says:

    Francisco Guzman – I don’t disagree with you Bowles is a coward as a coach, and Leftwich is a moron. Arians held this ship together and he’s badly missed.

  691. Boltsfan17 Says:

    This team is not good. Issues everywhere on both sides of the ball. Took maybe the worst roughing call I’ve ever seen to win. Bowles cluelessness has infected the entire team.

  692. bucnut2 Says:

    Falcons got screwed.

  693. Rod Munch Says:


  694. HolyBuc Says:


    TERRIBLE SECOND HALF… and we’re supposed to be a great 2nd half team.

    Bucs are just so INCONSISTENT.

  695. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    Bucs will win this. Don’t freak out.

    Edit: now, it might be time to freak out. Just kidding.

  696. Bucamania Says:

    Well this team still looks like dogsh1t. Barely beat the lowly Falcons with tons of help from the refs. Pretenders.

  697. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Good now that the Bucs barely got by the Falcons I can now watch real football and good coaching

  698. bucnut2 Says:

    The team is going nowhere. need to dismantle this highly-paid roster, fire the coaching staff and work on the draft.

  699. JimbobBucfan Says:

    Fun to watch on TV while listening on the radio.

    Go Bucs!

    Go Bucs!

    Go Bucs! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🏈

  700. D-Rok Says:

    BUCS WIN. That’s good enough for me.

  701. Faspro Says:

    The outplayed the bucs in the second half.

  702. Tackleblockwin Says:

    I’ll take the W, but we are no where near where we need to be on both sides of the ball.

    The falcons outplayed the bucs in the second half.

  704. Defense Rules Says:

    For all of you screaming that Bowles sucks: if you really paid attention to the game, the Bucs starters were totally beat in that 4th quarter. I didn’t see Bowles or any of his assistant coaches out there on the field. This team has inadequate quality DEPTH and that’s killing us. That’s NOT on Bowles; that’s on Licht. So many of you sing his praises for drafting well, etc but you don’t hold him ACCOUNTABLE for his mediocre personnel decisions. You know, things like paying $6 mil for Julio Jones and more than that for Hicks.

  705. BigZ Says:

    Well, we know the identity of our Bucs this year and so far its not a quality team. We’ll see what this coaching staff is made of. Not sold Bowles, really never was.

    Said it before, we have got very little from our last two drafts. JL gets too cute in our drafts.

    Gage was not worth 10 mil.

    All week it’s going to be boo hood bad call on Jarret. What about Vitas terrible roughing call, how that egregious hold on Winfield when they scored. Cry me a river

  708. Rod Munch Says:

    DrunkinYbor – Correct.

  709. DrunkinYbor Says:

    Worst officiated game of the season. Just a basic good ref team. This game is what it is. We win they had heart our talent and execution was better in the end probably a score like 24 to 16 but the refs screwed the pooxh.. now all the conspiracy nuts can go crazy

  710. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    @joe after that crap called a football team you might want to wait till tomorrow to talk about the YAYaYucs…!!! They aren’t very good and I think we all need to accept it because these FAs are a joke and the coaching staff is a direct representation of what we see on the field… SOFT AF and NO LEADERS.. oh and forgot no one brings the nasty !! Just a bunch of players who got paid and are mailing it in and how they are 3-2 is beyond me

  711. Coquiro Says:

    No way we are the best in the NFC South. Lots of film on us depending way too much on Fournett and short underneath passes over and over. They better upgrade their play calling.

  712. Old School Bucs Says:

    We just took first place in the conference and the usual suspects are on here like little beyatches crying about every little thing. If any of you cry babies ever really played anything at a high level you would know there isnt ugly wins, only wins! Geeze with fans like these it is a wonder we can get anyone in the stands!!! See you in the super bowl, or will you boycott because the bucs didnt win like you wanted! What a bunch of losers!

  713. Goatfarmer Says:

    It was a win.

    Bowles keeps hacking about not finishing games. Perhaps the answer is in the mirror.

    A win is great. First place in the NFC South is great. Undefeated in the division is great.

    Time to figure our stuff.

  714. Eckwood Says:

    FYI fellas it’s this staff that gets these guys ready and in shape and I can tell you with out a doubt Atlanta’s staff has their team in better shape physically and Mentally !!!

    Please sign Suh so Logan Hall has a running mate !!! Before the GMC posers further infect this team !!!
    We Know Who they Are !!!

  715. Whoolio? Says:

    Refs bailed us out with that bs personal foul on Brady. Play calling in the 4th was plain horrible. Throwing and running hurry up when your trying to finish a game and keep your defense from having a heat stroke in the 4th is dumb. We want BA back and Leftwich should gtfo.

  716. Straykatt6000 Says:

    I’m not saying that the Bucs would have lost, if refs didn’t bail them out, but they sure helped the NFL’s Golden boy at the end!!!!
