Ravens 27, Buccaneers 22

October 27th, 2022

Beleaguered head coach Todd Bowles.

Joe hates typing it, but the Bucs are a bad football team — with Tom Brady at quarterback and a bunch of big-name, big-resumé players.

Tampa Bay dropped a deuce on the field of The Licht House tonight after scoring 10 first-quarter points and coming out hot on defense.

No surprise, they couldn’t sustain it. Tampa Bay has now lost five of their last six games, and they haven’t played a complete game of quality all season.

The coaching is bad, the team’s passion is terribly inconsistent, the run defense is dreadful, and Brady is out of sync with receivers. Our beloved Bucs are 3-5.

In fact, the Panthers can seize the NFC South lead (via tiebreakers) with a win against the Falcons on Sunday!

Something is dreadfully wrong with the team. They are far too lifeless, far too often.

The Ravens ran for a whopping 233 yards on 31 carries. Disgusting!

The only upside tonight was the return of Julio Jones, and he actually made it through the entire game and scored a touchdown.

Joe is ill.

The Bucs entered this season on a 22-5 run. Now they have five losses before Halloween, a Lost Decade tradition.

    Let’s raise a glass one more time to toast the 2020 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s going to be a long time till this organization fields another winner. The short lived era of great Buc football is over (again).

  12. jkholdingfirm Says:

    Offensive and defensive geniuses huh?
    I have never seen a team that can’t get off the field on 3rd down week after week after week… Pitiful folks

  13. BICKLE Says:


  14. NaplesBucFan Says:

    I’m done getting my hopes up…it’s the lost decade Bucs again and they ain’t gonna do sh!t this year!! Just like I didn’t let myself believe the 2020 Bucs could be good until about this time of year, now I won’t let myself think they can do anything the rest of the year.
    They are playing complimentary football…the offense sucks @zz and the D follows suit

  15. SKBucsFan Says:

    Let’s see if Licht steps up.

  16. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    The Greatest lie ever sold to Buc Fans”

  17. Lamarcus Says:

    Devin white is garbage. He’s the main reason we lost

  18. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m telling you, just offer up Brady to Miami, but all the owner, not the GM, demand at least two 1sts and you’ll get it. The guy is a Brady fanboy, will pay up whatever you want for him.

  19. WalkdaPlank Says:

    This is a bottom feeder team. Not even 2 full years removed from a Super Bowl victory and with a healthy Tom Brady.

    Bottom feeders.

    This team looks exactly like the Lost Decade.

    Glad Brady won a Super Bowl here so we aren’t known as the team that “ruined” Tom Brady. Back to the basement Bucs fans!

  20. Killian Says:

    Fock these guys…

  21. Orlando Kevin Says:

    Bruce Arians should still be the coach. But the offense also looks out of synch.

  22. View from 132 Says:

    Trade vets for picks. Start over. Don’t wait. Rebuild starts now. Evans, David, pile up draft capital. The Brady Experiment was great… but time to move on.

  23. Greg Says:

    ALL on Bowles and his stubbornness of no changes. The offense is totally predictable, the entire team is SOFT

  24. Rob Says:

    Horrendous. It’s over for this team. Bad coaching, no fight. Hard to watch.

  25. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Good old dysfunctional Glazer owned team

  26. beano Says:

    For the third week in a row: Trade Brady, get draft picks, play Trask so we can see what he has, and start the rebuild.

  27. EA Says:

    Effort is there for 1 quarter until the other teams adjust and the bucs don’t

  28. Buc55 Says:

    Maybe we can go play lingerie bowl… Who knows..

  29. Sunset Buc Says:

    Rebuild incoming….

  30. Francisco Guzman Says:

    All that stuff you mentioned falls on the coaches. Shameful on these players. Seemed like they quit in the second half.

  31. Cchead Says:

    Anybody surprised?

  32. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    I hope Brady goes to play for a good, well-coached team next year. Sad to see him going out like this.

  33. JimmyJack Says:

    59 minutes one TD. Thats our season.

    One clutch play 4th&3 for the offense……We run offsides. Byron is responsible and so is Brady. Both control the huddle

  34. Jack Sparrow Says:

    I hope Brady gets traded to a much better team with better coaches and then he gets to face Bowles and Leftwich

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    I’m so glad we punted from the 50 on 4th and 2, when it was a 10-10 game, and the defense was clearly spent. What a great move by Bowles.

    Only better move was not onside kicking with 5 mins left, because you know Bowles had so much faith in his defense to make the stop.

  36. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Not to mention, terrible tackling on defense!

    A lifeless, listless effort on both sides of the ball.

    Terrible coaching…time for a change.

  37. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    NO way Brady plays here next year. Good job running off the GOAT

  38. Tim Says:

    So, about the draft…..

  39. Tony1775 Says:

    Please trade Devin White. He gave up out there and quit on the team.

  40. unbelievable Says:

    Cheers D ROme

    That was a complete team loss. Brady missing throws, receivers out of sync and dropping passes. Penalties from the lineman over and over at critical times. Failure after failure on 3rd down. And of course, Leftwich going Leftwich.

    MeanWhile the defense just folded and gave up after half time.

    This team stinks.

    They’re now about 15-20 plays a game away from winning. That’s bad.

  41. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Bowles won’t be fire even though he’s terrible. Time to trade some picks.

  42. Killian Says:

    Notice how the Ravens adjusted at half time and came out and won?

  43. BICKLE Says:


  44. Posey99 Says:

    Bad coaching. Bowles is a smuck. Letting suh go was a mistake. we Have JTS and Logan hall that can’t stuff the run. Arians was the better coach period.

  45. Bucco2 Says:

    Brady is the only reason most of you are here. If he had not come to Tampa this chat would be empty.

  46. NashvilleBuc Says:

    The team that is RE-inventing losing! How can you be this bad? I mean, I get we shouldn’t be as good as last year, but GD these guys can’t even play their positions at all any more! WTAF!!!

  47. D Says:

    What a $HIT show this team has become! They all suck, especially the coaches! Ravens adjusted after halftime, while the Yucks got caught with their pants down. Fire them all!!

  48. Bucfan1988 Says:

    230 yards rushing allowed tonite….

    Defense has mentally checked out now cuz the offense is so putrid….

    If Leftwich’s head doesn’t roll before next week then NOBODY should go see any more games….Season ticket holders sell your tickets!!! Don’t waste a penny until this garbage changes!!

  49. Colonel Angus Says:

    Den of Depression, welcome back old friend!

  50. Boltsfan17 Says:

    Don’t know where you’ve been Joe but welcome to reality. Most on here have been saying they’re bad for 3 weeks if not more. Aside from a handful of players (a very small handful) the rest of this team could be stuffed into a cannon a shot into space. Brady should walk away now. This team and coaching staff is just tarnishing his reputation.

  51. D-Rome Says:

    Agreed T REX.

    Total organizational failure.

  52. Shawnbuco Says:

    It’s over.. we won a chip , but blow it up . Trade Brady to San Francisco get picks and move on. Bring BA back …

  53. Caleb lee Says:

    Back to being an unemotional zombie while watching Bucs games again..

  54. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Hello darkness my old friend

  55. HC Grover Says:


  56. Rod Munch Says:

    Brady proved his arm is fine tonight, so that helps get more value for him, although, again, to me it’s a 1 team race on the trade as the Dolphins will clearly give up, by far, the most for him.

    Two 1sts, and I guess we’ll take Tua as well, although I don’t really want him, but him and Trask and compete for the job I supposed, that job, being to get the #1 overall pick in the draft next year.

  57. Frank Pillow Says:

    Burn It Down. Byron should be out tonight. Todd should be one-n-done.

  58. bucs4life Says:

    If I see one more time. One more time. A backshot picture of Arians in the background patting the shoulders of Bowles or Leftwich. Man, I swear.

  59. BucsBro Says:

    Time to fire at least one coach.

    That’s the only hope of salvaging the season.

    There’s no fire, no direction, no common sense, nothing.

    Total disaster.

    I know Todd and Byron are Bruce’s guys, but this ship is going down fast and they’re not going to right things.

    Either they go or the season is lost, and Brady is out at the end of the year.

  60. Melvin Junior Says:

    I KNEW-IT. Called-It. Well, Almost Hahahah… (on the 2pt. conv. att.) I Said “Fournette” UP THE MIDDLE, Coming Soon… And, It’s EXACTLY, “Up The Middle,” Tho With “White!!!!” LMFAOOOOOO What A JOKE.

  61. Seattle Buc is back in TB Says:

    Devin White rides horses. Ravens linemen ride him like a horse.

  63. Devinwhiteshorse1 Says:

    I’m so disappointed in byronnnn but not surprised he lets us fans down yet again. SMH that 2 pt play what was the reason?????

  64. Shipwrecked Says:

    This team is toast. Bowles should be fired. Rebuild for the next decade here we come.

  65. SteveK Says:

    I miss Antoine Winfield jr and Marpet/Jensen.

    Devin White looks bad.

  66. Cchead Says:

    Another kick in the Bowles. “His” defense is great.

  67. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This game was lost by another impotent performance by our offense……we sent the defense out on the field too often and for too long.

  68. Bucfan1988 Says:

    Joe, you can post my comment like any day now ??

  69. Bosch Says:

    Renewal of the lost decade. Glazers are a class act but they are clueless when it comes to being a pro sports franchise owner. Just the same. Thanks for the second championship. It remains a beautiful memory.

  70. Doctor_Berto Says:

    I actually thought lefty called a good game first half, then….

  71. Darin Says:

    What’s the difference? The head coach and the guy really calling the offensive plays. Do it now glazers you’re about to watch toilet bowles and be who he be bring down the goat! Don’t let it happen!

  72. Gman Says:

    Horrible coaching….Brady should audible every single play….then throw the Trent Dilfer bounce pass.

  73. D-Rome Says:

    Bucco2, not true. Most of us were here before you. We’ll be here after you.

  74. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Rod Munch they’re not gonna give us that much for Brady. Maybe a first and a a couple of 3rd rounders.

  75. DBS Says:

    Didn’t watch it.Didn’t miss it. And it came out just like most of us knew it would. Now do the Glazers have the nads to do anything about it?

  76. R0n@Tampa Says:

    Bucs are still in 1st. We have to believe. Win the division and you are 0-0 in the playoffs. Anything can happen after that. The best football is ahead for the Bucs.Still a championship team. Just off to a slow start.

  77. Darin Says:

    Doctor. He hasn’t called a good game since Bruce called his game

  78. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Feel bad for Brady having to be associated with this.
    He’ll finish the season because he’s classy,
    then he’ll get the hell out of Dodge

  79. Rod Munch Says:

    People talking about White are literally morons.

    #27, #22 and #30 are why the defense went downhill after Shaq went out. Lamar Jackson is literally the best rushing QB in NFL history and you morons are saying White sucks because Lamar had 40 yards rushing when he averages like 65 a game.

    Just really stupid takes by the low IQ dullards here.

  80. HeavyE Says:

    Sean Payton!!!

  81. Bucfan1988 Says:

    230 yards rushing allowed!! PATHETIC!!

    Defense has mentally checked out cuz the offense is so putrid!!

    Heads need to roll!!

    Start w Leftwich!
    That’s a no-brainer….

  82. Gman Says:

    This is why you don’t choose head coaches based on their race….

  83. Shipwrecked Says:

    Gotta get this damn Bucs plate off my car. Don’t want it to break down like our defense. Shame

  84. D-Rome Says:

    Let’s not forget Brady gave up his marriage to Giselle to be 3-5. 👀

  85. bucs4life Says:

    Edwards had 6 yds per carry. Drake had 9 yds per carry. Duvernay 16.5.

    I don’t wanna hear a dang thing about “time to get whoever involved”. I want this coaching staff handing out resumes elsewhere.

  86. Bosch Says:

    See ya Brady. Go save your marriage.

  87. Deeez NATZ Says:

    Fire toilet bowl and trade Brady while we can get something…Be honest people,Brady got vaccinated. Brady and toilet bowls is the problem

  88. BucsBro Says:

    As Vlad said, zero chance Brady sticks around for another year of this clown show.

    I think Brady realized the time to get out was now.

    Fire Bowles and Byron, hire Payton, and let’s see if we can fix things now and certainly for next year.

    Maybe Yoko will be another offseason departure. That would probably help Brady clear his mind a bit, too.

  89. HeavyE Says:

    Gman you are an ASSHOLE!!!

  90. Francisco Guzman Says:

    You have to point out that this D-line has been very disappointing. Very disappointing. They can’t stop the run.

  91. Professional x Says:

    Turn out the lights. The party is over.

  92. Todd Says:

    We’re still tied for first in the division!

    Look on the bright side!

    We’ll win the rest of our divisional games and get a home game for the playoffs!

    That’s been the plan all along! 😎

  93. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Maybe if the Bucs get Sean Payton then Brady will stay?
    Doubtful, but maybe

  94. Chuck Stevens Says:

    Goodbye Bowles and Leftwich.
    This team has issues! Can’t stop the run can’t stop the pass can’t stop 3rd and long
    What exactly do they do good ?
    Barely competitive!
    Smh !
    Jets South!

  95. Dre bucs fan Says:

    Front row seats today at the game on the 50 yard line LITERALLY, And i can HONESTLY say Tom Brady looks like drew Brees his last year with the slimy saints! He’s under throwing routes he usually hits down field, he’s missing wide open players in the end zone and for some reason continues to throw the ball at Chris Godwin feet. Fellas this season is over. And even if we can MANAGE to win the division at 10-7 are we seriously sold on us as superbowl contenders??? Enjoy the rest of the season and get ready for some dark and gloomy years after the departure of Tom era in Tampa! Great run….OH NOOO WE SUCK AGAIN Lmaooo

  96. SteveK Says:


    I say Devin White sucks at covering backs out of the back field. He got beat tonight by the Rb for a TD and he got beat in Pitt.

    He also over pursues.

    Dude is a top-5 draft pick, it would be great if his fundamentals got better in his fourth year.

    I don’t expect him to be perfect. I do expect him to minimize the dumb ass mistakes.

  97. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Bucs Fans lives matter !!!

  98. Mike Johnson Says:

    Quit Whining guys. We have our superbowl for the decade. They are hard to come by. Its time for Brady to sail off into the sunset. He should have done so last year. he looks old, slow and confused. They tried. We Just don’t have the horses this year. Its like Parcels says, You are what your record says you are. And right now at 3-5, Well, I’ll let you fill in the blanks. On to the next game Good night

  99. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Coaching matters in this league and these players on this team have a crappy attitude. I would hate to lose time and time again. I can’t remember the last time that brady lost 3 games in a row. I have to look that up.

  100. Kgh4life Says:

    Devon White needs to be benched, he’s a liability at this point. The guy can only run fast.

  101. Bosch Says:

    Bucfan, defense checked out because bowel movement is their coach.

  102. bucsfaninva Says:

    Rod, I don’t know what game you were watching but White was repeatedly, constantly getting blocked away from the play. Even the broadcasters were showing it on replays. Just freaking pathetic. BUT, you are right. He wasn’t the only one. The entire D needs to take a good hard look at itself. I am so sick of the secondary hitting instead of tackling. And that was when they were near the other player…most of the time that wasn’t the case and they were tackling from behind.

    It’s enough to drive you back to drink.

  103. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    DW is a very good linebacker on a defense with bad coaching, little heart and a bad D line

  104. Cchead Says:

    Bowles is a gutless pos. Had a 4th and 2 from the 50 and we punt. Bowles is a miserable excuse for a head coach.

  105. T REX Says:

    Michael Clayton is a JOKE

  106. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Loo at people thinking brady is a shot lol.

  107. bucs4life Says:

    Lord know how much it hurts to admit, but Payton would have wiped the floor of the competition if he had Brady and this team. He would be at least 6-2.

  108. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Yucs2Bucs Says:
    October 27th, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Bucs Fans lives matter !!!

    NO they don’t

  109. Uncle Urk Says:

    Lol. I actually enjoyed the game tonight. I went in knowing we would lose. The team looked better and looks like it’s getting better. With that LG out, the offense looked promising. It’s a simple fix now. They need to fix the LT position and we will take off. Maybe if Hicks comes back and stay healthy or go get Suh… I can see a 11-6 or 10-7 finish. If they put the LG back in… all bets are off.

  110. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    It’s not White and it’s definitely not the GOAT.
    It’s 90% because of shi++y coaching

  111. Tackleblockwin Says:


    I like Devin White but he is out of shape and can’t get off a block to save his life. This has been proven over and over again this season. Overall though the offense is mostly to blame again.

  112. HawaiianBuc Says:


  113. Buc4evr Says:

    Brady is done. The guy can’t extend plays, his throws are off and he gives up. Time blow this team up and Plan for the future. Leftwich has got to go also.
    Not only is team old, soft and slow, the coaches are pathetic. Blow it up! Total disgrace…

  114. ClwJB Says:

    Completely outclassed by another NFL level staff

    They broke us textbook style and we had no answer on either side of the ball

    Bowles et al need to go

  115. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Teddy B says what we all know Brady is just as much to blame for this crap !! I would say at least we will get a good pick, but Licht will screw it up minus Whirfs

  116. PassingThru Says:

    Dre, have you thought about following soccer, or picking up a hobby like gardening? You have no clue about assessing a QB. Brees had nothing behind his throws the last two and a half years of his career. He lacked zip and distance. Brady showed tonight that he still has both.

  117. Oviedo Jim Says:

    Tell it like it is boys
    Good night and good LUCK .

  118. T REX Says:

    JOE…please escort the klan members out of here

    People, put away your hoods and crosses

    @gman…anytime buddy…let’s go

  119. bucs4life Says:

    I wanna say this again.

    Edwards had 6 yds per carry. Drake had 9 yds per carry. Duvernay 16.5.

    We have ZERO EXCUSES. ZERO. For that performance from the front seven. It’s all on Bowles.

  120. Buczilla Says:

    Wow, we became a bad team really freaking quickly. With any luck, we’ll be in the running to draft a good qb next year. If Bowles is here next year I am going to be livid and some of our guys just look disinterested man. Sad and pitiful.

  121. bucs4life Says:

    Buc4evr Says:
    October 27th, 2022 at 11:37 pm
    Brady is done.

    Oh shut up man.

  122. JimmyJack Says:

    Joe please look back and highlighligt Devin not trying. Im talking about 2nd and seven. With 30 ticks left in the 3rd.

    Devins sideline to sideline speed could have forced a 3rd down but instead White didnt try and didnt care, or maybe he is just a bad LB i dont know.

    That play lost it for me. I watched the last quarter in a slumped position becaue #45 is a team leader.

  123. BelleGladeBuc Says:

    Our defense can’t stop the run in the A and B gaps.

    That’s directly on the MLB and the DLINE.

    The Bucs have given up 400 yards of rushing on defense in the past two games.

  124. Silent_Partner Says:

    I wonder if Brady and Leftwich are red-penning any of the game plans now. So many idiots bought that Arians wasn’t the secret sauce for that offense when he did it before Brady got there and also in Arizona with a much worse roster, and Leftwich sucked in Arizona on his own. Also, the defense was number one against the run the last three years, and now everyone runs on them. They don’t just give up over a hundred yards, they give up 200 every week now. It’s only going to get worse because the Rams own them, and Seattle is a good team. Kenneth Walker is going to run for a mile.

  125. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Bowles is who the Jets thought he was!!

  126. JimmyJack Says:

    The 2nd and 8 from midfield** Ravens had 2 if them in last minute

  127. Francisco Guzman Says:

    So i was looking at Brady’s career. The guy hasn’t lost 3 games in a row since the 2002 patriots team. That’s unreal. Leave it up to a Bowles team for him to lose 3 straight games.

  128. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Brady is getting the ball out quickest in the league:
    1) He’s not done obviously he’s still deadly fast
    2) He’s having to do that because the O line straight up sucks

  129. theghost Says:

    the giselle hex continues…

  130. Bucanero Says:

    45 didn’t show up at all. What happened to Shaq? We need more bodies on defense yesterday.

  131. Vlad The Impaler Says:

    Giselle is not a coach on the Bucs.

    She has nothing to do with the carnage

  132. Oneilbuc Says:

    Brady should go home to his wife and family he’s done!! I don’t want to hear about Gronk or Suh and I definitely don’t want to see Brady come back it’s over!! Brady had a great career but it’s time to hang it up.

  133. Oneilbuc Says:

    O line blocked for Brady tonight and last week no excuses!!

  134. Will Says:

    We have a mini bye now is the perfect time to fire BL and get someone anyone else to call the plays. We lost this game because the offense can’t sustain drives and let the defense catch their breath. I’m not sure exactly how many 3 and outs we had but I know there were many consecutive ones.
    Defensively Devin White has got worse each year since the Superbowl. Seem him get blocked for 15yds and then trip over his team mate on the opening drive of the 3rd qrt. He looks like he’s put on weight and is slower. Shaq actually was balling before he got hurt.
    Ravens have an OC that made adjustments at halftime we as Bucs fans don’t know what that’s like this year. But I’ll admit Brady didn’t look great out there either. No matter what anyone says his personal life is taking a toll on him.

  135. Robert Craft's Wedding Party Says:

    Horrible coaching. They get up by one touchdown, and take their foot off the gas. Get the ball first after halftime, back to back runs to the back up running back and an incompletion. Three and out. Punt. Advantage erased. No energy. No passion. Uninspired. A soft spoken coach can’t motivate players. It’s broken.

  136. Craig Says:

    The biggest change happened when Barrett went out. He was everywhere and was missed after.

    The offense looks okay for a bit and then collapses. That is a coaching problem, not enough good plays coming to sustain a drive.

  137. ACG2x Says:

    In 119 of the last 120 minutes of football, we have ONE touchdown. That’s all you need to know.

  138. JimmyJack Says:

    Shaq had a good game. Ravens tryed to burn us with deeper plays and Shaq shut it down in 1st half.

    In the 2nd when Ravens went quicker and attacked the middle they exposed White……and others.

    Not such a big deal if the Bucs had a prolific offense but the problem is we dont

  139. Whoolio? Says:

    Wheres crackhead after calling me and many other true fans out last night for being honest about the team we care to much about? 🙈🙉🙊

    We have a mini bye now is the perfect time to fire BL and get someone anyone else to call the plays.

    Put Joe and Rod Much calling the plays and it’ll be 500% better than what we have.

    Or just put a kid who has played 3 hours of Madden and he’ll do better anyway.

    October 27th, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    O line blocked for Brady tonight and last week no excuses!!

    That’s absurd. Brady was running for his life.
    Brady has been getting the ball out quicker than any QB in the league
    1) He’s still got it
    2)The line SUCKS

    Why do we always wait until 6 minutes left in the game when losing before we go to no huddle offense. Poor coaching. Our defense really sucks! Devin White is garbage he just blows off hot air. He continues to over run plays n get blown off the line. I’d rather have Don Gardner in at corner than keeping this piece of garbage Dee Delaney. JTS is a bust, he’s a one trick pony. Our rookie kicker is a waste of a pick, cant consistently get the ball in end zone for touch back n where did he learn how to onside kick? Godwin is not the same post injury. Evans is missing passes. Brady is approaching that time, the game has caught up with him. Leftwich needs to go n Bowles should be on the hot seat.

    Brady has a shoulder injury since whenever that hit was. Doesn’t have the zip and he’s under throwing everything. Also, shaq tore his Achilles. Clean house!

    BwaaaahaaaaHahaha. Otherwise I cry.

    Glazers? Hello?

    It’s hard to pinpoint the weakness of the team as it isn’t just one problem. First off the game plan was insane. The offense stalled out once the Bucs go the lead, as the playcalls got very conservative. It wasn’t like they had a 3 TD lead, it was just Leftwich and Bowles acting scared. That led to the defense being on the field too long as the Bucs badly lost the time of possession.

    But that’s not all. The Bucs lack credible red zone talent. Other than Evans, there isn’t a quality red zone WR or TE on this team. That problem arose when AB went crazy and Gronk retired, and yet the front office signed players who do no produce in the red zone (Gage, Julio) or can no longer function in the red zone (Randolph).

    The O Line still stinks, Licht has had months to replace Jensen, Marpet, and Cappa, and yet only now do they dredge up a deep reserve to replace the badly over-matched Goedeke. But the interior wasn’t the only problem, penalties and coverage sacks also destroyed drives. There are really only two quality receivers on this team. One of them has had a strange series of drops this season (Evans) and the other is simply a year away after tearing his ACL (Godwin).

    The defense looked good the first half, but then the Ravens had a weird game plan. The first half they relied on passing, which isn’t their strength. The second half they overpowered the Bucs with their quality running game, something the Buc defense is no longer proficient at stopping.

  146. Uncle Urk Says:

    Oh and for Devin White, it’s not his fault. You guys are barking up the wrong tree. He is a run and chase LB. He is not a down hill thumper. He needs big bodies in front of him to eat up blocks. He was Def player of the month when Hicks was in. There is a reason for that. If a lineman gets to him, it’s over. Ray Lewis had that problem for a couple of years.

  147. lunchmeat Says:

    OK, Leftwich, two point conversion from the 1, and you refuse to put Kieft and Wells on the field? Power football, damnit!

  148. Uncle Urk Says:

    Will Ghostbuster and Roaches are not Suh. They would not. I repeat, would not play as much on and other football team. Neither would Nassib or Nelson. ASJ would because of potential.

  149. Goatfarmer Says:

    Whatever, Diva White is a poor fit for the team in every way. Trade him now Now.

    His mental weakness, lack of pass coverage ability — can’t tackle, can’t run anymore. Get a 2nd rounder for him and be done. Let him ask someone else for $100 million.

    Brady is done so all you Patriots/Brady fans can start packing your bags and go back to your team because Brady is 45 and he’s done . It doesn’t matter what plays you run they can’t execute the plays . I’m ready for Kyle Trask!!

    Did you notice how how great Linda Ronstadt was. Buc fans, it’s time to move on.

  152. catcard202 Says:

    Bucs 2022 playoff hopes are trash at this point, but TB12 has a sweet new yacht to spend his next few mid-life crisis years trolling for snapper off the coast.

  153. Gman Says:

    Looks like some ignorant people did not understand the gist of my comment and it went over their heads. I have no problem with black coaches…I have a problem when ANYONE is hired based on their race. BA stated he resigned so a black coach would have a chance to be a head coach. Well…that means Bowles got the job because he was black and it was thought to be his time. Well…I think we know how that has worked so far.

    How many of u on this site blasted Arians for being overated and just riding his golf cart too much! I miss the Kangol king personally

    “I have no problem with black coaches”

    When you are throw that caveat in…. it’s pretty clear what you believe.

  156. RGA Says:

    Brady needs ultimate protection and an offensive coordinator that can dial up plays to get receivers open.
    Leftwich does not seem to be very creative with play calling, most are predictable. First down run up the gut is predictable.
    A coordinator that can use a little misdirection, maybe a creative screen pass on first down, and not just once, keep the defense guessing. Mix things up.

  157. Jonathan Almodovar Says:

    Todd Bowles looks bored every time the camera pans to him! A stark contrast to BA who was always talking to or yelling at someone! I’m no fan of firing coaches quickly but Bowles does not seem like the passionate and inspirational head coach we need him to be. TB12 is obviously not himself and I’m sure his dumpsterfire at home isn’t helping.

  158. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    @carcard202 – LOL, Brady will have plenty of new Snapper, once he gets rid of Giselle, if u catch my drift ?
    Besides being terribly outcoached, our physical conditioning is very suspect.
    We were fine in the first half, and were even beating them, but they killed us in the 2nd half because we are not in near as good physical shape.

  159. Cobraboy Says:

    Only casuals expected a win Thursday.

    I am resigned to the fact my team flat sucks in every dimension.

    I will never mock Mike Smith or Greg Schiano again. And maybe Radio Morris.

    I blame BA for giving us this coaching spitshow.

    No heart.

    No head.

    No leadership

    No one deserves a “c” on their chest.
