    I HATE DLS time… now we have to wait another hour before the depression sets in .

    I don’t think they have one ounce of pride. If they did, they would not allow this crap to continue. They are grown men, for crying out loud. They don’t care that they are turning the Bucs back into the laughing stock of the league? Again? History will not be kind to them. Just like the ‘76 team. At least they had an excuse.

    Is it possible to watch the Bucs and listen to the radio broadcast on IHeart or similar through your smart TV without a time delay. I was watching the UF game yesterday and the announcer not only sucked! There trite banter was nauseating!

  5. BucsfanFred Says:

    Sometimes I just mute the TV. I don’t need some idiot to tell me what I just saw.

  6. Robert Says:

    I think the Bucs win and start their run. Provided they come out throwing. And not just the CG screen.

    The TuneIn app Lightning Power Play switched to allows you to pause live radio. The ad-supported version butts into the audio stream every half hour or so for a handful of commercials that are louder than the announcer audio but it runs a bit ahead of the video stream so you can delay it as you’d like.

    I voted Yes because I choose to be optimistic. Prove me right, Bucs!

    Aren’t the Bucs DUE for a decent, competitive game? It’s been too many weeks in a row, so a flip of the coin says Why Not This Day?

    Don’t worry, I’ll be back on JBF later crying about our loss with the rest of you, if we lose.

    GO BUCS!!!

    I don’t think the Bucs will have a winning season with how things have gone so badly the last 4 games. Any chance of a winning season starts here and they would need to win out almost every game and for falcons/panthers/saints to do worse. They need to win every game to prove to themselves they can win and have some confidence back. I’m skeptical given so many issues starting with coaching, looking at Bowles but of course Leftwich especially.

    Well, the Rams are a better team than the Steelers. And the Panthers. And on par with the Ravens.
    The only significant changes that I know of in the last 10 days is the return of Hicks. Maybe we can stop the run at 150 total yards rather than over 200 total yards.
    If Tom has been jumping at shadows this season, he’s really going to be on edge with Aaron Donald blowing up the online all damned day. Nothing changed on offense (why is Lefty still here?) So it will continue doing what it does best…

  11. Tye Says:

    You mean: Will Bowles and Leftwich be out coached?…… YES!
    2 of the worst coaches in the league…

    Hoping Tommy will take over and somehow pull out a win…

    Will Devin White poop his pants? There’s a great chance.

    I missed the Poll but I vote Yes.
    The Rams are not nearly the team they once were, not even close.
    WE have had a full 10 days to prepare for them + we have h6omefield advantage at Tampa Stadium.
    LA is a really long way from Tampa, and since the Rams are not winning lately, their fans have abandoned them.
    Our 3 receivers are healthy for a change, and watch for Brady to hit them often.
    Aaron Donald is always a problem for any team, but hopefully we can scheme him out of the play.

    IMHO, todays game is a must win game for us, if we have any hope of saving our season.
    The Chargers should beat the Falcons in Atlanta today, and the Bengals have a good chance to beat the Panthers as well today, even though they are w/o Jamarr Chase.
    WE really need this win because we play the Seahawks next in Germany, and Geno Smith has been playing lights out in Seattle.
    That is going to be a tough game for us to win, so IMHO we MUST win today.

    I have posted here several times before that many of the Guys at my local Sports Bar predicted all this when Todd Bowles was named Head Coach.
    Most of these guys are from New York, and remember Bowles when he was The Jets Head Coach.
    Not only did they predict what is currently happening with our Team, but they also predict our Team’s Implosion.
    A loss to the Rams today here in Tampa may be the beginning of the predicted implosion, when and if Todd Bowles loses the locker room.

    I must admit I scoffed at them when they made these negative comments about Todd Bowles, and dismissed them as opinionated disgruntled New Yorkers with an Axe to grind against Todd Bowles. I even told them to their faces that they were full of Chit! They just smiled and said “Just Wait” and so far, they are turning out to be right.

    Maybe one day, we will all know the real reason Arians suddenly stepped down ?
    This has really hurt us IMHO, because neither Lefty or Bowles is even close to Arians as far as coaching goes.

    And, for all you Jason Licht Fan Boys, remember that Licht did not have to accept Bowles as head coach!

  14. Dooley Says:

    Maybe. I’ll reiterate the same prediction I’ve had the last two games and that is the first team to score two touchdowns will win this game. It’d be nice if our offense can start fast out the gate (again), but it’d also be nice to see them control the ball and keep their foot on the gas.

    As far as the defense goes, Zmac gets a drop in reps on defense with CD & SMB back in the line up. hopefully we don’t see him much as a gunner on punt, BUT if we do I’m hoping the staff has told him, he’s supposed to be blocking his man and not racing downfield him to meet at the returner. I’d feel more confident with either Ryan/Winfield back, but I guess we’ll see what Neal & Edwards can do, also, we shouldve cross trained Dee Delaney at safety this offseason.

  15. A Says:

    Everything seems so hard for the Bucs right now – Offense and Defense. Seems like our WR are covered and everything has to go right to complete a pass. We’ll have 4 runs of 7-10yards than the rest of the runs are for -2 to +2….I almost feel like we have no chance on 3rd down. Brady doesn’t trust this oline to hold the ball an extra click to find a receiver…add in lack of a 3rd WR and no Gronk…BL’s bail me out game plan to go 5 receivers and just let Brady find someone is long gone. He absolutely doesn’t have the ability to design / scheme an offense around the Bucs strengths and against the other teams weaknesses.

    On Defense, running on us has been way easy, the other teams receivers are wide open…our corners play off on 3rd and 4….Same thing, I almost feel like we have no chance to stop teams on 3rd down. Against bad QBs we should have blitzed and played man…but we love to sit in this zone that we are not good at.

    Go Bucs!

    I actually give them a shot to get the W today but think they lose next week because they are atrocious.
