“Hell Of A Job Not Coming Out Here Sightseeing”

November 13th, 2022

Winning formula.

Did Todd Bowles take a postgame slap today at Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll?

That’s unclear, but Bowles opened his postgame locker room victory speech to his Bucs team with the line, “Hell of a job not coming out here sightseeing.”

And then Bowles repeated the line again.

The Bucs’ “home” game was in Munich, Germany, and Tampa Bay won it 21-16. Seattle traveled to Germany a day before the Bucs did and Carroll made a big deal about how he wanted his guys having fun. He likened it to a college bowl game approach for the NFL’s first regular season game in Germany.

Bowles wanted a more in-and-out, business-like trip with limited free time. Bowles’ overall mindset was, ‘Hey, vacation in Germany in the offseason if you like it.’

And the Bucs came out all-business, winning in the trenches on both sides of the ball and dominating as they built a 14-0 halftime lead.

Joe is handing a game ball to Bowles. He outcoached Carroll today and proved that he had the right formula.

    Sluggo gets spunky…..good

    Gee whiz, Joes. You guys and the usual bunch of yahoos roasted Bowles and BL pre-game. So, own up! WHOA! Joe didn’t roast Bowles for his travel decision. Joe only pointed out the clashing philosophies and that one winner would prevail. Joe is not a travel expert. –Joe

    Give credit where it’s do. Team seemed more focused today, thankfully. When is the last time the Bucs had a 14-0 lead?

    Orlando buc fan ,I’ll take that steaming pile nice and hot! Mr Bowels had them boys ready to play and I’m excited for the future! He coached a hell of a game.Looked like the bucs from last year.This game was a huge step in the right direction. I’ll will call him Mr Bowels for now on.

  5. Bucfan Says:

    For once the team was ready to play!!!

  6. HC Grover Says:

    Sluggo got Spunk but did u see Julio take off like a Buc out of Hell? Brady was in total control and the team had EFFORT!

  7. Buddha Says:

    Buccaneers led 21-0 over Falcons in 4th quarter.

  8. Craig Says:

    Bowlegged got lucky on his decision. Of course the Seahawks had another three hours of airtime that might have helped.

    He got lucky because Brady had a reason to play hard, and did. I didn’t see any passes thrown in the dirt and the O-line responded in a most excellent fashion.

  9. Redeemer Says:

    Brady had them ready to go. I think the entire team took his effort comments to heart. Make no mistake, this is his team. Said it before, I’ll say it again. The goat will have the ball in his hands, with a chance to go to the title game. No other QB I’d rather have.

  10. Macajubav Says:

    Craig look it up, in fact the Seahawks flight was only about 35 minutes longer than the Bucs flight, imagine that ! 3 hour time zone yet flight time nearly equal, friggin globe ! (Delta8,lol)

  11. orlbucfan Says:

    I’ve been a loyal Bucs fan longer than the Joes have been alive. I am so proud of Bowles and BL, AND THE WHOLE TEAM TODAY that I want to scream. I’m a diehard Bucs Radio fan who lives in O-ville. I’m also an educated fan so no one intimidates me. Plus, I’m trained in English.

  12. Coburn Says:

    I’m more inclined to believe Brady’s comments on effort had everyone going. Either way though I thought for sure Bucs would get outcoached… And while I think they made more adjustments in second half we were the better team

    Hats off.
    Get the boys some rest.

    It’s spelled Bowles, not Bowels. That indicates a bowel movement, and I don’t think so.

    To bad the coaches didn’t put in the same effort. Should have destroyed the Seahawks, instead, Leftwich and Bowles were more than happy sitting on a half-time lead and making the game competitive instead of putting them away.

    Glad we won, but these coaches should be mad they made this a game with their awful decisions – like taking the ball out of Brady’s hands in the redzone and making Lenny the QB – and playing a soft zone / prevent defense that let the Seahawks move the ball at will and score two TDs.

  16. Coburn Says:

    Yeah Rod. You know prevent is d is the opposite of offense playing for third downs. There was an article earlier in the week for basically continuing to put yourself in coin flip situations every 10 yards.. the whole bend don’t break prevent means you’re essentially letting them get to red Ine before tightening down.. and now you are leaving them scoring or not down to what’s actually usually better than a coin flip instead of making them fight for every 10 yards.

  17. JD Says:

    honestly, one of the thing I love about bellicheat unlike bowles is that he never takes his foot off the gas pedal. bowles in 2nd half adjustments is a joke!

  18. Rod Munch Says:

    Coburn – I know the prevent defense is, and I’ve seen it fail my entire life, over and over and over and over. It’s a play called by cowarderly coaches who. Also, it didn’t work, once they went to that, they immediately gave up 2 TDs after shutting them down all day. They won because the offense was able to run out the clock, if Seattle gets the ball back, Bowles lets them score 3 TDs in the 4th quarter, and get an L.

  19. Your Mom Says:

    Yes, credit it where it is due… he approached it like winners.

  20. Coburn Says:

    Yeah Rod I agree. Never works. My point being you’re practically taking the chances of a TD drive being 25-30% I think and you’re letting them just start at the red zone which becomes like 50-70%

  21. Coburn Says:

    You’re generally not even making them earn it on 3rd down. Case in point.. thsy scored those 2tds despite having a terrible time on third downs

  22. JBBUCS_06 Says:

    @Buddha that’s right, forgot about that game as it felt like so long ago. Cause the O has pretty much sucked since especially to start games.

  23. kyle Says:

    credit is due.. good job coach bowles.

  24. D-Rok Says:

    Sure seemed like a well-coached game for once in the last 4-5 weeks.

    That fake screen that got a 10-yard or so pass to Evans for the first down, that was a great design, play-call, and execution.

    Ordering a double-pass to a very old QB with a 4.2-foot vertical, that call wasn’t so great, LOL.

  25. D-Rok Says:

    *sorry, meant to type 4.2 inch vertical, LOL

  26. PassingThru Says:

    That’s always been the problem with Pete Carroll coached teams: He’s a fun coach, and a great cheerleader, but he runs his team like a country club.

  27. Reach87 Says:

    Rod, surprised you offered the “ifs” line to avoid giving any credit. I think it was you who said something like there are 20 “ifs” in every game. Craig, your choice of calling the coach out of his name is classic 2nd grade. What’s next? You gonna call him a dumddum head? Sad. Go Bucs!

  28. garro Says:

    Let me see if I’ve got this straight… Joe and Bowles think they played better and won because the Seahawks did some “sight seeing” umm Really?
    Slow news day Joe?
