Buccaneers-Falcons, Open Thread

January 8th, 2023

Lavonte David

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

Be nice. Be respectful, unless you’re insulting zebras or the heinous Falcons and their putrid uniforms.

Go Bucs!!!

    In Maine visiting family. Game is blacked out on my nfl Sunday app

    Go figure !

  3. AmauryGuzman Says:

    No injuries plz! This team has been snaked by injuries the last two years. Makes me wonder why they haven’t fired their training staff.

  4. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Kyle Trask please!!!!!!!! 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  5. Onetrickpony Says:

    Get them Brady ,get them Bucs

  6. HC Grover Says:

    This game is an Ahhhdunno.

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This game is not meaningless to the players, owners, coaches and true fans of a winning culture…

    Win this, Bucs!!!

  8. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Please no injuries is right!!!

  9. BucsFan81 Says:

    TB12 Let’s Go Go Bucs!!!

  10. Jack Clark Says:

    Let’s go Tom Brady!!!

  11. BA’s Red Pen Says:


  12. Curse of Gruden Says:

    Let’s run some up the middle!

  13. Jack Clark Says:

    First play is a run up the gut

    Who would have guessed?!?!? 😱

  14. Bucs Chump Says:

    Never a doubt. First play straight up the gut.

  15. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    No game is meaningless

  16. fwfan Says:

    If the belief by many of you is that the Buccaneers will win the super bowl this year and continue to build on the NFL’s next dynasty in years to come then why would you want Bowles and Leftwich fired? That doesn’t make any sense.

  17. Jack Clark Says:

    Wow looks like Todd Bowels is allowing Byron Leftwich to open up the playbook

  18. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Well, at least the Falcons know how to dress their cheerleaders.
    Ours suck.

  19. Buc4evr Says:

    Jet sweep, not up the middle.

  20. Jack Clark Says:

    Todd Bowels needs to hit the gym and lay off the quarter pound cheese burgers

  21. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Is ME13 sitting?

  22. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Kyle F….ing Rudolph……saving the best for last!!!

  23. 1#bucsfan Says:

    No ME13 out there that whole drive ?

  24. Buc4evr Says:

    Finally using the TEs. Yay!

  25. Rod Munch Says:

    Wow, that looked like an Arians drive.

    Probably because Arians wrote out that drive during the week.

    OK, great, now get Brady out of the game.

  26. Faspro Says:

    Holy Cow!! Kyle Rudolph!! GO BUCS!!

  27. Jack Clark Says:

    Touchdown Tampa Bay!!!! 😀

  28. Jack Sparrow Says:

    U LIKE THAT !!!! U LIKE THAT !!!!👍

  29. NaplesBucFan Says:

    Is Evan’s not playing??

  30. Bucs Chump Says:


  31. ClwJB Says:

    Nice start!!

  32. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I guess we need to make Leftwich a Buc for life now, huh?
    Back up the Brink’s truck immediately.

  33. BitcoinTom Says:

    Wow I guess momentum is on the bucs from last week. Got high hopes for the playoffs

  34. NEfan Says:

    When did Rudolph join the team?

  35. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That was…impressive. Especially with certain guys not playing.

  36. cmurda Says:

    Byron looks fantastic. About 5 times including the reverse and TD, I said great playcall. I hope this continues. There’s a famous line by Harvey Keitel in the movie Pulp Fiction that I can’t say on here. Basically, I’m not about to say Byron has won us over but if he continues to look the part, we could be dangerous.

  37. BucsFan81 Says:

    Someone took the handcuffs off the offense last week and now it’s back. Hopefully this continues in the playoffs.

  38. bucs4life Says:


    But why didn’t we open the playbook like that before in the season, man? SMH!

  39. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Plenty of good seats available at today’s game. Very nice opening drive and some good calls as well.

  40. fwfan Says:

    So many SB titles does anyone think the Bucs can string together the next 5 years? 3, 4?

  41. Jack Clark Says:

    NEfan Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 1:12 pm
    When did Rudolph join the team?

    He signed a one year contract with us in July 2022

  42. geno711 Says:

    I should have bet on Brady to Rudolph for a TD.

    Tom Brady likes those numbers. Now increased how many different players he has thrown a TD to.

    I should bet on Thompkins if there is still time left.

  43. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Is Kyle Rudolph the Bucs’ secret weapon ?

  44. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    What was wrong with that?

  45. NEfan Says:

    Jack, that was sarcasm

  46. mikey Says:

    @fwfan Trolling or drunk

  47. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team has to stay away from injuries man.

  48. Rod Munch Says:

    Arians literally writes out the opening series of games, it’s why the team generally moves the ball. After that, Leftwich takes over, and it’s why the offense becomes ultra predictable and everyone in the stadium knows what is coming.

  49. geno711 Says:

    Closing in on 100 for his career. Got to think it is 95 or 96 different players now.

  50. BitcoinTom Says:

    Let’s go

  51. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Pick him!

  52. Faspro Says:


  53. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Yeah…we’re winning this game, lol. Brady might bench himself because it’s too easy.

  54. Jack Clark Says:

    Tom Brady never had a losing season, that’s incredible

  55. #8’s Ghost Says:

    Geno, Rudolph was #96

  56. Rod Munch Says:

    Great, defense did it’s job.

    Pull all the starters, offense and defense.

  57. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Thompkins seems…decent.

  58. cmurda Says:

    D Thompkins. Real;ly really liking what I’m seeing from this kid. Having a big impact already. Nice return.

  59. #8’s Ghost Says:

    Tompkins gets a td today for #97

  60. Jack Sparrow Says:

    I think its time to sit down the starters ?

  61. cmurda Says:

    Jinx Bonzai

  62. NEfan Says:

    Talk about a tribute to Hamlin, Bill’s take opening kick off in for a TD!

  63. 500Cells Says:

    What have you done Mark?!

  64. Old School Bucs Says:

    All the Joe Bucs Fans LOSERS in the house let me hear you scream and shout!!!!!!

  65. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Rod Munch Says
    “Arians literally writes out the opening series of games, it’s why the team generally moves the ball.”

    Source? Or Theory?

  66. Jack Clark Says:

    We’re playing lights out so far, looks like a sleeping giant woke up!

  67. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Where the hell has this team been all year????

  68. EA Says:

    Schlereth is annoying

  69. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “Jinx Bonzai”

    LOL…this team is already jinxed.

    But…we do have some good players for the playoffs.

  70. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – Every team writes out their opening drives – and the opening drives actually have good playcalling, not predictable. Once Leftwich is back in charge, it’s the same garbage over and over, 1st down run up the middle, 2nd down short pass, 3rd down short pass, punt.

  71. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Oh, you were talking about our similar comments. I thought you were talking about me saying we will win, lol

  72. Rod Munch Says:

    That’s why you pull Brady after that opening drive.

    Now you have to play him at least one more drive since you don’t want to that to be his last drive.

  73. cmurda Says:

    Hainsey with the ole. Come on man. We get the first down if he does his job.

  74. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Goedeke at RT

  75. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Rod Munch

    What I meant was about Arians. Especially since he’s been away for health reasons until last week.

  76. NEfan Says:

    Today is different, usually Bucs opponents write out Bucs opening drive.

  77. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Bad second drive.

  78. cmurda Says:

    That would work too Bonzai. One half at most Todd. I think Brady stays in to get his 10 completions to get the record and then he could be taken out. Hopefully that strategically happens before the 1st half ends.

  79. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I’m just glad this isn’t another night game…they always conflict with my own broadcasting schedule…as mediocre as I am at it 😉

  80. Buc4evr Says:

    Brady didn’t see the WR open in the middle?

  81. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team is gonna need a 3rd option on offense to step up come the playoffs

  82. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai – Arians can write out an opening drive in about 15-seconds and email it in. No way he’s not involved, not when he’s the one that stuck us with this dullard Leftwich.

  83. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I would really like to see what Trask can do…and the Falcons are a good team to break him in with. Not too tough.

  84. HC Grover Says:

    He should of got a flag

  85. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ritter…that was a nice pass. Great spin.

  86. Buc4evr Says:

    Wow that was blatant.

  87. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Dean got toasted

  88. Tucker Says:

    Middle of the field was wide open and not a single hot route

  89. EA Says:

    Pass interference, dean didn’t turn around and early contact

  90. Rod Munch Says:

    Again, this is why you pull the starters on both side.

    Had a great opening series on offense and defense, nothing to gain from keeping them in.

  91. Buc4evr Says:

    Dumb Bucs. Lol. So sad

  92. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @HC Grover

    Yeah, he should have. Refs tossed us a bone on that one.

  93. HC Grover Says:

    They are getting burned

  94. Jugheadfla Says:

    Dean a burner? No

  95. Rod Munch Says:

    It was also pass interference on Scotty Miller vs Atlanta earlier this year, and they didn’t call that either.

  96. cmurda Says:

    JTS has shown flashes. He also gets thrown like a little tiny baby on most plays.

  97. HC Grover Says:

    Any given Sunday

  98. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Illegal low block???

    Can’t hit high? Can’t hit low?

  99. HC Grover Says:

    ROFL Bowzo is Surprized Atlanta adjusted.

  100. cmurda Says:

    If that 1st team offense doesn’t want to let Todd pull the starters, his own defense will make sure it doesn’t happen

  101. Buc4evr Says:

    Omg. They are going to score. Defense is getting killed in the run game

  102. cmurda Says:


  103. bucs4life Says:

    Jack Clark Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 1:16 pm
    Tom Brady never had a losing season, that’s incredible

    I understood the reason for this when I saw the close-call wins in his perfect regular season of ’07. He simply keeps refusing to lose and has a lot of comeback wins. I still don’t know how he didn’t lose against the Ravens and Giants on that particular regular season. When Belicheat gave him bad teams, he kept grinding until the end every time. Well, I gues we saw some of that fire this year thankfully.

  104. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Yeah…whose out on defense?

  105. Rod Munch Says:

    Why in the world didn’t they pull all the starters with that great start? That’s an example of garbage coaching. Everyone leaves on a high, feels great, exciting going into the playoffs. Now you have a 3 and out, then give up a garbage drive.

    Just stupid coaching.

  106. HC Grover Says:

    Falcon scrubs are fired up.

  107. Bucco2 Says:

    Offense finally comes to life, defense craps the bed against a terrible team and QB.

  108. BucsFan81 Says:

    Yucs are back

  109. Jugheadfla Says:

    I wish we would of drafted Allgeier. Dude was a bowling ball at BYU

  110. BitcoinTom Says:

    Let the starters rest we are good

  111. AmauryGuzman Says:

    The bucs defense is showing up lol

  112. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This defense is a huge concern come through playoffs.

  113. Buc4evr Says:

    Geez. So bad. Defense can’t tackle, terrible.

  114. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Can anyone other than AWJ make a tackle?

  115. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Same ol bucs

  116. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


  117. HC Grover Says:

    Brady will have to play whole game to win it looks so far. Bowzo plan in effect.

  118. cmurda Says:

    8th string QB does this to a supposedly good defense. OK Todd.

  119. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Bucs fans …..these are your awful Bucs

  120. Rod Munch Says:

    Good job Bowles — don’t blitz the rookie QB, nah, sit back and give him 10 seconds to get rid of the ball. Great call, coach.

  121. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So they scored…means nothing until the end.

  122. D-Rok Says:

    OK now get the starters outta there!

  123. Jugheadfla Says:

    That’s what happens when you can’t get pressure

  124. Bangkoak Bucs Fan Says:

    Maybe we need to rest the offence and get the D to play the whole game. That was soft

  125. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    We’ve seen this all season long

  126. bucs4life Says:

    Devin White embarrassed in back to back plays

  127. Craig Says:

    Last week I heard this crud called a top ten defense; who dat?

  128. Faspro Says:

    Falcons have better run blocking, and the bucs can’t tackle…

  129. HC Grover Says:

    And we are stuck with Bowzo next year too.

  130. Cobraboy Says:

    Another rook QB eating the Bucs alive?

  131. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    They’re schemin and we’re dreamin! Knew we’d give his 1st career td. It’s what we do

  132. BucU Says:

    Garbage Todd Bowles football. I’m so over this 2022 team. Pathetic.

  133. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This defense is junk.

  134. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Just lose the game and rest the starters

  135. Defense Rules Says:

    Someone needs to tell Winfield that it’s really hard to defend passes in the end zone when you’re behind the receiver.

  136. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Brady is going to want a 3 TD lead by the half in order to allow himself to be pulled out.

    Grats to Ritter for his first (and hopefully last) official TD.

  137. BucsFan81 Says:

    Starters need to stay in. They need the work. We need to work them until they no longer suck.

  138. Tucker Says:

    Defense got bullied right down the field ouch

  139. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    All young QBs play like Joe Montana against the Bucs defense

  140. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I am not resting any starters until the 3rd quarter. That was embarrassing by this so called defense.

  141. Jeff Yoemans Says:

    Again Bowles doesn’t have his defense ready to play

  142. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    They’re schemin and we’re dreamin! Knew we’d give his 1st career td. It’s what we do.

  143. Jugheadfla Says:

    Evans is out correct? Haven’t seen him out there yet. Really he shouldn’t be any way

  144. Faspro Says:

    Ridder’s first TD pass, thanks to the yucs…

  145. Tucker Says:

    White got blasted in the end zone by the guy who caught the touchdown wow

  146. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    TheBucsAnthem Says
    “Just lose the game and rest the starters”

    I do not agree in the first half…but…I also don’t want any injuries, and the Falcons are a team known to take out players (along with the Saints).

  147. Jack Clark Says:

    @bucs4life completely agree!

  148. fwfan Says:

    Buffalo, Cincy,or KC. Fans expect any of the 3 will be beaten by the Bucs. Looking ahead who gives them the Bucs the most trouble for the big game?

  149. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hainsy out.

  150. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Really, really dumb to leave Brady in now.

  151. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Not a good sign. An injury already.

  152. Bucs Chump Says:

    Desmond Ridder looks like Don Knotts

  153. DoooshLaRue Says:

    WTF Godwin?

  154. Faspro Says:

    Bucs suck…

  155. HC Grover Says:


  156. Bangkoak Bucs Fan Says:

    Godwin fumbles again. Man…..

  157. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:


  158. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Already ran out the script already running the first down up the gut. Now we’ll just hand it back to the falcons and see what we can do. Great play calling I got to say. This team is definitely ready for the playoffs

  159. BucU Says:

    Why do I subject myself to this garbage? PATHETIC.

  160. Jack Sparrow Says:

    This is a one and done team. smh

  161. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Okay…Chris…you don’t do it often…so don’t do it again.

  162. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I still have no trust in these lousy coaches at all.

  163. EA Says:

    Back to back weeks with fumbles for Godwin

  164. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    This shouldn’t piss me off…….

    Butt Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks would never let their Bucs team get pushed around by a rookie QB

  165. Jugheadfla Says:

    B2b week fumble for Godwin. He’s just not strong enough

  166. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Lay off the cocoa butter Chris.
    Go ashy for the wins.

  167. HC Grover Says:

    I almost picked Falcons in my football pool. I thought Bowzo could blow it.

  168. BucU Says:

    F U k this team.

  169. Rod Munch Says:

    So now Hainsey injured too, plus a fumble, and gave up an easy TD drive.

    Literally all they had to do was bench the starters, on offense and defense, after a fantastic opening drive on both sides.

    This is what incompetent, stupid, moronic, low-IQ coaching looks like.

  170. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Hey Falcons fans…are we on your websites trolling you?

  171. bucs4life Says:

    Godwin needs to work on his ball discipline

  172. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Geez…..Godwin is shook now

  173. BucsFan81 Says:

    Damn this team is still a mess. Does anyone really think they can even win a playoff game.

  174. Tucker Says:

    This team continues to charlie brown away

  175. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Brady will have his first losing season lol in awhile

  176. Jack Clark Says:

    Goodwin is America’s new turnover machine

  177. Mike C Says:

    That was an excellent defense play bt ATL

  178. Will Says:

    That’s a weakness for Godwin.

  179. cmurda Says:

    Awesome Godwin has turned into a soft handed dude. He saw everything and still let the ball get punched out. This horsecrap is the sign that we are just a crapshow. If it’s not the coaches, it’s the weak hearted effort.

  180. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Messy offense……again

  181. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Rod Munch

    Well maybe it is minor and they pulled him because they don’t want to risk…I can dream, right?

  182. HC Grover Says:

    Oh No first injury Bowzo Blunders Big.

  183. Jugheadfla Says:

    Godwin needs to talk to Tiki

  184. Jack Sparrow Says:

    bucs first drive was a fluke. Same with this pathetic defense.

  185. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Injury prone team. How is this training staff still on this team?

  186. cmurda Says:

    Inexcusable by Godwin. He better learn how to hold a GD ball because every single tackle froom now on is going to involve guys trying to yank and punch the ball out.

  187. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo plan on track behind in 1st qtr.

  188. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    According to the announcers who reviewed the fumble, Godwin did everything right. The tackler just did his part right too. It happens. Not always preventable.

  189. TampaBayRudy Says:

    If you throw the ball down the field 30 yards every series and it never succeeds, do you stop running that play? Absolutely. So then, if you run up the gut every series and it does not succeed almost ever do you stop? Of course not your Byron Leftwich. Stop asking stupid questions now. You don’t know football like Byron Leftwich

  190. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Russell gage and these other wideouts have to step up. They have contributed nothing to this offense.

  191. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – the defense gets paid as well. That was as perfect of a punchout as you’re ever going to see. It’s not inexcusable, it’s just a great play. There’s nothing Godwin did wrong there.

  192. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Godwin is obviously mentally weak now…..he’s never fumbled like this before

  193. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @cmurda You are probably right.

  194. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Won’t Jensen be starting next week?

  195. BucU Says:

    We got em right where we want em.

  196. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Remember when Mike Evans has turnover issues?????

    He corrected that!!!!!!

  197. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Yup…that indeed commercial spoke to me, lol

  198. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    DoooshLaRue Says
    “Won’t Jensen be starting next week?”

    That’s what I am hoping.

  199. cmurda Says:

    The first scripted drive was nice but let’s see what Byron has to offer the rest of the game. This has happened all year.

  200. Faspro Says:

    BucU, I don’t know, maybe were expecting this crap team to show up for a complete game.

  201. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Nice to see Julio coaching Godwin.

  202. Jugheadfla Says:

    Godwin just now learning how to hold the ball….lol

  203. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Evans not playing. Cool.

  204. Rod Munch Says:

    So 4 series in a row, 4 runs up the middle in a row to start them.

  205. BucU Says:

    Todd Bowles is the HC. I blame him. He should be fired immediately after the upcoming playoff loss.

  206. fwfan Says:

    3 to 4 titles would give the Bucs 5 to 6 titles. As much as the Patriots. Wouldn’t it excite you guys that the Bucs would tie the Patriots for most SBs in the NFL?

  207. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Yay! Another first down run up the gut for one yard. I cannot believe what I’m seeing

  208. Rod Munch Says:

    Run up the middle, short pass/screen pass to the WR.

    This is Leftwich in total control.

  209. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “You gotta use those pecs to keep it in place, Chris…” – Julio

  210. Jerry Says:

    Hainsey out with a hamstring.
    Evans taken out now with illness.

  211. cmurda Says:

    Godwin may have put a couple on the ground but I love him. Especially love that angry run after the catch.

  212. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team looks so predictable today. What a shocker.

  213. Buc4evr Says:

    Why do we waste first downs? And then can’t run a yard for 3rd downs? Leftwurst has to go.

  214. AmauryGuzman Says:

    @Jerry again fire this training staff. The bucs have been the worse team staying injury free the last two seasons. Joke.

  215. Mike C Says:

    Better he godwin learn that lesson now instead of next week.

  216. Bucco2 Says:

    Godwin is good for a couple of ill timed fumbles per year

  217. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Well with ME13 out…..the Bucs ain’t winning today!!!!!!!!😁😁

  218. BucU Says:

    How the Glazers haven’t fired everybody is beyond me.

  219. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Jerry Says
    “Hainsey out with a hamstring.
    Evans taken out now with illness.”

    Yeah. Gotta say, I caught a cold a couple days ago. I wouldn’t play either the way I feel. Let’s hope it’s not COVID. If so they won’t let him place next week.

  220. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “Godwin may have put a couple on the ground but I love him. Especially love that angry run after the catch.”

    Me too.

  221. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Is there anybody on this team besides godwin and evans? Our 3rd wideout situation is a mess. There’s a lot to wideouts on this team occupying nothing but space. Scotty Miller is one of those guys.

  222. Rod Munch Says:

    Run up the middle… LEFTWICH IN PLAYOFF FORM!

  223. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    They need to do a reverse on first for a change.

  224. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This constant running on 1st down…..predictable

  225. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Serious question: why do we have such a retarded offensive coordinator making equally retarded play calls? Does he have OCD? Is that why he runs the ball on every first down?

  226. Rod Munch Says:

    Falcons were stunned that Leftwich didn’t run it up the middle on 1st down, and pitched it outside.

  227. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    I don’t always agree with the coaching, but how is that Leftwichs fault ? The first drive was great and then the second TB throw wasn’t good and then Godwin fumbles again ( 3rd game in a row ) I just don’t get how it’s always the coaches fault and they have to run to keep the ATL defense on their toes. We need to hold players accountable as well as the coaching staff

  228. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Did they pull White and Fornette?

  229. Buc4evr Says:

    So Lenny isn’t playing?

  230. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Gio looks good when he’s not on the punt team

  231. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    He was in for at least one play.

  232. Rod Munch Says:

    Lenny played the 2nd series. He’s been playing hurt all year, so I think they’re just giving him some time off.

  233. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    2nd & short….let Brady throw

  234. Rod Munch Says:

    The Falcon’s were all over the 1st down run up the middle.

    Leftwich is shocked that the Falcons knew it was coming.

  235. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Hey look a first down run, tackled in the backfield for a loss. Get him a job with Miss Cleo he really guessed on that one

  236. cmurda Says:

    Somebody boneheaded up on the O Line. That was hysterical to not block their best defensive player but it surprises me not.

  237. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    To the well too often,Byron

  238. Rod Munch Says:

    1st down run up the middle, 2nd down short pass to the WR…


  239. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That was a nice cut by Thomkpins.

  240. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Still committing a lot of dumb penalties. That’s coaching for you.

  241. bucs4life Says:

    First time we had a pitch all season instead of running bad stretch plays.

  242. Rod Munch Says:

    That sure looked like Godwin got that 1st down from the TV angle. Of course the idiot F team at Fox doesn’t show the replay. Morons.

  243. HC Grover Says:

    Rofl they were going up the gut….

  244. Buc4evr Says:

    Run the reverse here

  245. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Sure don’t throw a red challenge flag cuz that couldn’t have been a first down, instead let’s call a timeout. Great coaching call there toilet bowls

  246. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    CRAP! FG time.

  247. Rod Munch Says:

    That was a terrible hold, he had the 1st down… Stupid.

  248. cmurda Says:

    Cut Goedeke right GD now. That dude blows

  249. Jugheadfla Says:

    Geezus Luke, you didn’t even need to do that

  250. cmurda Says:

    Let him suck ass for another team.

  251. bucs4life Says:

    Goedeke is insufferable, unwatchable. I can’t even with this guy.

  252. HC Grover Says:

    Falcon scrubs kick our butt.

  253. BucU Says:

    Cut #67 at halftime. He’s GD awful!!!

  254. Buc4evr Says:

    Geez. Playoff teams don’t do this.

  255. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “Cut Goedeke right GD now.”

    That was a stupid penalty, and not his first…but he’s not horrible depth.

  256. unbelievable Says:

    Goedke fcn sucks!!!!




  257. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – so cut Godwin, cut Luke, who else should we cut?

  258. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Another stupid penalty cost us a 1st down…

  259. BucU Says:

    Moronic. I hate this team.

  260. unbelievable Says:


  261. Buc4evr Says:

    Why is Goedeke even out there?

  262. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    You didn’t need to wrap someone on a pulling play….WTH?????

  263. BelleGladeBuc Says:

    All Goedeke had to do was get in front of him and they have the first down.

    No need to hold.

  264. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo should pull all the starters now for a good excuse for this pathetic plan.

  265. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    I cannot believe Goedeke was even drafted

  266. TampaBayRudy Says:

    You know the only reason we’re all on here armchair coaching week to week is because those of us who know football, who may have played in the past either professionally or semi-professionally, find it so absurd that a coach in the NFL can make such absurd and nonsensical decisions on a week to week basis for a billion dollar franchise and not suffer any consequences for that. It is so frustrating for the fan base. Not throwing a challenge flag and instead calling a timeout is equivalent to handing the falcons four points and then getting a holding call in the next play. This coach makes me hate football not just the Buccaneers

  267. Rod Munch Says:

    Goedke is a 2nd round rookie who came from a D2 school.

    How about you ladies calm down with wanting to cut him? You fruits have the mental stability of an 18-year old girl on her period.

  268. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team is so badly coached lol. It’s a miracle they make the playoffs with this coaching. Yikes

  269. cmurda Says:

    Disagree Bonzai. Goedeke is trash

  270. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Let’s try to remember…every player on the offensive line is a third stringer. So pretty much anything good is a plus at this point.

  271. Jeff Yoemans Says:

    Goedeke just cost us 4 points, forced to settle for a FG after a stupid penalty

  272. unbelievable Says:

    Always with the excuses for the moronic, sloppy play.

    Have higher standards fans.

  273. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Even an offensive lineman from as an high school football team wouldn’t even have made that penalty

  274. Rod Munch Says:

    Shocker… when you blitz a rookie and force them to speed up their reads and throws, they don’t make plays.

    That’s why you should blitz rookies literally like 95% of the time.

  275. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I’m not making excuses…Luke messed up…no doubt. Just saying he doesn’t deserve to be cut for it. Not at this point.

  276. bucs4life Says:

    Tryon keeps guessing and whiffing. Rakeem bailed him out big time, could have been a massive run.

  277. cmurda Says:

    JTS and Logan Hall both look like complete Booty. if this QB wasn’t scared he would have gotten the 1st.

  278. Buc4evr Says:

    Put Scotty out there to stretch the field

  279. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo plan calls for turnover here.

  280. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    JTS is truly lost on the field……

    All he does is rush the passer…..nothing else…..he’s lost bro

  281. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    TheBucsAnthem Says
    “Even an offensive lineman from as an high school football team wouldn’t even have made that penalty”

    Well…that’s an exaggeration, lol. Even the best OL guys make stupid penalties at times.

  282. Buc4evr Says:

    Time for no huddle

  283. DoooshLaRue Says:

    I didn’t realize Wirfs and Mason were 3rd string Bonzai.

  284. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Kyle Trask will save us (rolls eyes)

  285. HC Grover Says:

    Hicks is better edge rusher than Plan 9.

  286. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Where’s scotty Miller? Do we have a third option at wideout whose consistent?

  287. Buc4evr Says:

    Scotty, Scotty, Scotty. Lol

  288. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    They won’t cut Luke

    They don’t have other options

  289. Tucker Says:

    Jts all the athletic ability in the world zero instincts for the game it’s frustrating to watch sometimes.

  290. bucs4life Says:

    Goedeke had a lot of issues this season, and I badmouthed him here on Joe’s comments sometimes. That said, he’s got potential. Only has to relax, put on some weigh and play with confidence+grit+technique instead of being nervous.

  291. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    Announcers said the entire front was backups. I assumed because they said that they were not playing.

  292. HC Grover Says:


  293. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Hey what do you know? A run for two yards on first down

  294. Buc4evr Says:

    Omg. That guy wasn’t even picked up.

  295. unbelievable Says:

    @Bonzai – lol that’s fair, he shouldn’t be cut.

    Maybe just knocked upside the head for being an idiot.

    Him and Donovan Smith have cost this team so many touchdown drives this season, it’s infuriating.

    The longer Atlanta is able to hang around, the longer we are playing starters and risking more injuries.

    Get get a big lead over this awful team and be done with already. Everything the Bucs do is so sloppy and inept this season it’s frustrating.

  296. EA Says:

    Tompkins at 5’2″, 150lbs isn’t gonna break any tackles

  297. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo got it going now. Brady 4th qtr comeback?

  298. Rod Munch Says:

    Still have questions about who wrote out that opening drive?

    Since then it’s been completely predictable, 100% Leftwich.

  299. Tucker Says:

    Wow just trash

  300. cmurda Says:

    I don’t care how much Brady wants to be in this game for the lo9ng haul, he can’t be in there mnore than a half. The pathetic depth and O Line on this team is going to get him killed. Jason Licht has not at all impressed after looking like a stud GM initially. The draft has underwhelmed and most of his picks look like they need to be cut, ahem Goedeke, ahem.

  301. Jugheadfla Says:

    Ok, time to get TB12 out of there, this OL has no idea in the middle

  302. TampaBayRudy Says:

    I’m calling every play for the offense right now Byron left which style, and all it took was 2 Miller high lifes. I don’t know You tell me. Byron is padding Tom Brady’s thigh right now tell him it’ll be all right son, what a Hall of Fame coach there. Must be super comforting for Tom Brady to know that BL approves

  303. unbelievable Says:

    Brady shaking his head at how dumb everyone on this team is.

  304. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Bad inconsistent offense. This doesnt have much after godwin and evans.

  305. bucs4life Says:

    Molchon almost pushed the rusher on Tom’s face lmao

    We caught a break

  306. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, I have some rehearsals to do for tonight…I’ll be lurking but silent for the most part from here out. Later!

  307. Tucker Says:

    Just shut up leftwich go in at half and stay there

  308. BucU Says:

    Same shyt. Different day.

  309. bucnut2 Says:

    They need to get Brady out of there! It’s a totally makeshift line.

  310. HC Grover Says:

    Atlanta hanging out and waiting for a Bowzo Blunder

  311. Tucker Says:

    Jensen better come back cuz the interior oline is just brutal.

  312. BucU Says:

    Luke Geodeke is the worst NFL lineman I’ve ever seen. He’s that bad.

  313. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Come on Byron……hoe about a pass on 1st down……

  314. cmurda Says:

    The kayak celebration gets me every time. It’s hysterical.

  315. Onetrickpony Says:

    Good God

  316. HC Grover Says:

    Falcons BLUNDER! Maybe Dallas will too.

  317. Rod Munch Says:

    Gee, you blitz a rookie and good things happen for you.

    Real shocker.

    Again, that’s why you should blitz literally 95% of the time.

  318. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Brady out. Gabbert in.

  319. Rod Munch Says:

    So now when you can let Brady get an easy TD to pad his stats, you pull him?

    Just stupid call after stupid call by Bowles. If you let Brady keep playing, let him get the TD here.

  320. Tucker Says:

    Is Trask dressed?

  321. cmurda Says:

    Thompkins gonna snatch himself some playing time. Looking hungry out there.

  322. bucs4life Says:

    Just put Tom back in and let him throw some bombs.

  323. unbelievable Says:

    God help us if we’re ever relying on Gabbert to lead this team.

  324. cmurda Says:

    Tom looks pissed but I credit Bowles with making the right call and pulling him. I see Trask coming in the 2nd half.

  325. Tucker Says:

    Thompkins got some heart should try him out more.

  326. HC Grover Says:

    Uppie de Guttie

  327. Tucker Says:

    They should have just put Trask in they need to see what they have in him cuz tom probably isnt coming back to this mess

  328. Rod Munch Says:

    Said it back when we signed him as an UDFA, but if you watch the college highlights for Thompkins, he looks just like a smaller D-Jax.

    It’s worth going and searching out his highlights, if he wasn’t so small, he’d have been a high draft pick. But he is tiny.

  329. HC Grover Says:

    Trask will play 4th qtr

  330. D-Rok Says:

    Who stripped the ball from Ridder? (Game isn’t TV for me)

  331. HC Grover Says:

    Get the ball to Mighty Mouse

  332. AmauryGuzman Says:

    So many stupid penalties. My goodness this team is poorly coached it’s not even funny. I wouldn’t bring back Bowles. Hit the road Jack!

  333. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    That Thompkins kid is a hidden gem. He catches everything and has some real quicks. Sure would rather see Trask than Gabbert.

  334. DoooshLaRue Says:

    cmurda Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:11 pm
    The kayak celebration gets me every time. It’s hysterical.

    Looked more like a canoe.

  335. NEfan Says:

    Useless game, why risk starters if the intention was to sit them at the half. Stupid is what stupid does.

  336. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Tom likes to play. Bowles is a complete buffoon. I would have played tom until the 3rd quarter.

  337. BucsFan81 Says:

    I want to see Trask with starters but they will put him in with backups the second half.

  338. HC Grover Says:

    Gage hurt now

  339. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Crap. Even Brady is worried.

  340. AmauryGuzman Says:

    What happened to Gage?

  341. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Gage is a gamer

  342. Jack Clark Says:

    Excellent play calling by Byron Leftwich! WOW! who would have thought? 😱

  343. Chris Says:

    Gage is a always hurt

  344. BitcoinTom Says:

    Was it worth the TD? Damn!

  345. Onetrickpony Says:

    Brady won’t be back to this train wreck

  346. Old School Bucs Says:

    All the LOSERS must be happy Brady is sitting, but pissed Bucs winning!!!

  347. Rod Munch Says:

    Hard to tell on Gage, but maybe he got a knee in the back/sides, maybe the ribs. He walked off after being down for a while. Hopefully he’s OK since you don’t want Scotty Miller as your #3 WR next week (since Julio will probably be out with injury by the 2nd play of the game).

  348. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Why is this team so injury prone? They’re like the worse team in the nfl when it comes to players getting injured.

  349. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Let Tom go to a neighborhood bar for the 2nd half and have some Avocado Tequila.

  350. BitcoinTom Says:


  351. BitcoinTom Says:

    Sit all the starters please

  352. unbelievable Says:

    Losing Gage for the playoffs… awesome.

  353. bucs4life Says:

    Can we see a little 1 minute drill by Tom just for the art?

  354. Rod Munch Says:

    48 seconds left in the half and we do a run?

    Why wouldn’t you want to see Gabbert in the 2-min drill?


  355. Cobraboy Says:

    Smells like PS.

  356. HC Grover Says:

    Scrub a Dub Bucs are a Dud. 1st team sucked.

  357. Jack Clark Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:26 pm
    48 seconds left in the half and we do a run? Why wouldn’t you want to see Gabbert in the 2-min drill?

    Because he’s Blaine Gabbert… obviously

  358. Rod Munch Says:

    Jack Clark – fair enough.

  359. Shak Says:

    Why not play there, get our backup some real reps that he’s not going to get otherwise? Tom injury and none of our guys have had any reps this season til this game. Let him practice a 2-m run, scarred to lose a meaningless game only because they want their record to look better on their resume.

  360. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Unbelievable we don’t know gage’s availability. Relax.

  361. NEfan Says:

    STUPID IS WHAT STUPID DOES!!! Worthless game.

  362. Irishmist Says:

    I know this is in bad taste, but I’m kind of wishing somebody would fake a heart attack right now.

  363. ViSyl Says:

    LOL, Shak if Tom gets injured I would rather we forfeit the game. We can’t win without him.

  364. Jack Clark Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:28 pm
    Jack Clark – fair enough.

    🤣🤣🤣🤣 😭

  365. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Did Julio fake another injury or decided to rest .. lol, but got 6 million to play in 3 games this season. 😂

  366. Thunder Says:

    Most of you guys are whiny little beotches , hilarious. I am a Brady fan, not a Tampa fan. The rumors I have always heard are true, Buccaneers fans are the worst in the NFL, easily. I go to a lot of different team sites and you guys are easily the worst “fans.” I really hope Tom retires or goes to another team. You “guys” are embarrassing

  367. Rod Munch Says:

    The most interesting feature about the Falcons stadium is how the roof open and closes like a sphincter.

  368. D-Rok Says:

    Any injury update on Gage?

  369. Defense Rules Says:

    And yet, despite all the purported stupid plays, the Bucs are leading 17-10. Defense has had 1 bad series, and also gave up a FG on a short field after our offense turned it over. Offense scored 2 good-looking TDs and Succop kicked that 40+ FG. Still feels like a preseason game for some reason, but at least they’re ahead at the half.

  370. Rod Munch Says:

    Defense Rules Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:41 pm
    And yet, despite all the purported stupid plays, the Bucs are leading 17-10.


    Typical loser mentality.

    Bucs should be winning 24-0.

  371. Mord Says:

    The drop off in color commentary/analysis quality between Greg Olsen and Schlereth is almost funny

  372. Defense Rules Says:

    And IrishMist you’re right, it’s in bad taste.

  373. D-Rok Says:

    Yep, DR. Wonder if Trask will see any action – did he even dress?

  374. cmurda Says:

    The depth on our team is laughable. Tom Brady doesn’t want to lose this game but our backup defense doesn’t care.

  375. Defense Rules Says:

    Munch the only loser is you with your continual whining and belly-aching.

  376. HC Grover Says:

    Plan 9 is jogging all over the field.

  377. Rod Munch Says:

    Why the hell is Winfield Jr still in there. Get him out right now. He’s literally the best player on defense, and shouldn’t be out there with the scrubs.

  378. cmurda Says:

    Wow. This is horrific. Jason Licht has not done a good job with the team. It shows by the patheticness of the depth on this team. Very very pathetic.

  379. Jeff Yoemans Says:

    Soft defense after halftime.

  380. Rod Munch Says:

    Defense Rules – you can Bowles both have the same loser mentality. Be happy at barely winning vs a very bad team with a rookie QB, and the only reason we’re winning is because the rookie literally dropped the ball.

  381. Jack Clark Says:

    Thunder Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:41 pm

    What perennial losing NFL team you know has optimistic fans? I’ll wait… 🤨

  382. Rod Munch Says:

    cmurda – Actually it’s called a salary cap and doing a good job, it means other teams sign your guys.

  383. TampaBayRudy Says:

    I’m curious: how does the Buccaneer team give up so many plays down the field as easily as they do? They seem to get carved up on long passes as if no one is covering men downfield. This is not a Tampa 2 scheme; Tampa two is outdated. So what in the world are they covering when you see all these guys get open down field and rookies finding them with ease? Rookies seem to look like Hall of Fame passers against us. It appears as if the linebackers are lost. It’s something that we’ve been discussing about Devin White all season not being able to play in coverage

  384. Jmarkbuc Says:

    It’s week, 18, and as far as tackling goes, McCollum is the Murphy Bunting of Tryon-Shoyinka’s

  385. Rod Munch Says:

    TampaBayRudy – Bowles doesn’t run a Tampa 2.

  386. Thunder Says:

    Clark, you guys won 5 post season games the past 2 years, won a SB, playoffs 3 years in a row, back to back Division titles…are you still waiting?

  387. TampaBayRudy Says:

    @Jack Clark you can always go back to being a Pats fan, or just go back to peering at twink sites like you used to. When you have something more than “I’m just a Tom Brady fan” and “you fans are lil beotches” come back and contribute some legitimate football content. Some of us actually played and like to hear different points of view, not just trolling from angry nobodies 🤷🏻

  388. cmurda Says:

    Yeah come to think about it, these are backups going against startes. Fair point Rod Munch.

    Jack Clark. LOL> Only a true F Tard comes to a team’s site to make some absurd claim to rile up the masses. The troll game is weak. Pats fans and Phi fans have to battle out for worst fans. You crybaby primadonnas.

  389. Rod Munch Says:

    I forgot they have MNF playoff games now. If it’s Dallas vs Tampa, I wonder if they move that to Monday night as that has gotten big numbers the last couple of years.

  390. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo is trotting out his ‘Box Turtle’ game plan.

  391. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team is so poorly coached . I wouldn’t bring any of them back no matter what happens.

  392. Tucker Says:

    Blaine is not a mystery you know what he is put Trask in geez

  393. NEfan Says:

    Rod correct he doesn’t run Tampa 2 he runs Win Prevent

  394. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No matter the QB……no matter the RB…..run on 1at down

  395. HC Grover Says:

    Trask will play once Atlanta pulls ahead.

  396. TheBucsAnthem Says:


    Put freaking Trask in

  397. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Rod Much — no, I know. Tampa 2 is outdated. But team’s run updated versions with just a safety cover in zone. We seem to be missing a honey badger on top to save us on deep plays. Our corners wait too long to turn around on plays. Earlier, Dean shoulda been called. But a safety should have been there even before Dean had to turn around. We’re not splitting the safeties……we need to have either a two-derp safety scheme, or send White on every down. Vea and Hicks aren’t in rn and Barrett is out. I would adapt but Bowles seems confused on what he wants to implement

  398. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Camarda time……

  399. Jack Clark Says:

    Thunder Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:49 pm
    Clark, you guys won 5 post season games the past 2 years, won a SB, playoffs 3 years in a row, back to back Division titles…are you still waiting?

    TampaBayRudy Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 2:50 pm
    @Jack Clark you can always go back to being a Pats fan

    I been a Bucs fan since Tony Dungy, and we only started winning since Tom Brady returned us to glory. I was here when Josh Freeman, Mike Glennon, Josh McCown, and Jamies Winston made us the laughing stalk of the league so I have the credentials to chastise you

  400. cmurda Says:

    Still, this D Line and defense is vomit inducing. Backups or not

  401. NEfan Says:

    I agree if someone is going to get killed behind this line it might as well be the 3rd stringer.

  402. Rod Munch Says:

    Why in the hell is Winfield still out there? He’s the heart and sole of your defense, your best player on defense.

  403. Thunder Says:

    Rudy, you have a loser fan base

  404. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Brady will finish with a losing season. Not a shocker wiht this pathetic coaching staff.

  405. cmurda Says:

    Yet you say you Buc fans and now you are convincing others that you are a fan? See what I mean about the Patsy fans. Not even good liars.

  406. HC Grover Says:

    Gotta love this Box Turtle plan.

  407. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    JTS having a great game

  408. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That is what happens with a mobile QB

  409. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Do they have the backups in there? Man they’re terrible.

  410. Jugheadfla Says:

    Refs allowing holding at will, but whatevs

  411. HC Grover Says:

    Trask is gonna get clobbered.

  412. TampaBayRudy Says:

    @Thunder go somewhere else then. Commiserate here or go away. It’s that simple. If you don’t like it don’t stay

  413. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team is so damn soft defensively man.

  414. cmurda Says:

    Wow. Defensive line getting bullied per usual. These aren’t all backups.

  415. Tucker Says:

    Yeah most of them are depth players

  416. Thunder Says:

    Hey Rudy, this is America, I do what I want

  417. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    This is now officially a preseason game.

  418. Jeff Yoemans Says:

    This defense is going to get torched in the playoffs

  419. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Awful football. Brady probably wants to go back in. That’s how he is. He’s a perfectionist.

  420. Rod Munch Says:

    I haven’t counted all 11 guys, but it looks like all backups except for Winfield.

    This is like Ronde Barber playing the 4th quarter of a preseason game.

    Get him out of there.

  421. HC Grover Says:

    Can’t tell much diff in scrubs and starters

  422. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Thunder, can’t you hear your Mom calling you for lunch from the other side of your trailer?

  423. HC Grover Says:

    Perfect. 4 behind heading to 4th qtr. Bowzo does it every time no matter what. BOX TURTLE.

  424. NEfan Says:

    This is exactly the motivation the Bucs needed going into the playoffs. Bowels is a joke.

  425. Thunder Says:

    Cmurda ( one the the prime losers)

  426. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Bucs defense can’t really stop anybody. How much more against the Cowgirls!

  427. Rod Munch Says:

    Hey Defense Rules, you still happy being up 17-10? Is that still good enough, leaving a bunch of points on the field?

  428. cmurda Says:

    I don’t get the prevent the win prevent defense. Got a QB that hasn’t been that good but instead Todd is going to let our backups generate no pressure instead of blitzing. Just doesn’t even make logical sense.

  429. Jugheadfla Says:

    There are positions we don’t have a backup for due to injuries and Safety is one of them

  430. Tucker Says:

    It’s a preseason game at this point who cares just want to see Trask get reps at this point

  431. Jack Clark Says:

    No sarcasm but shout out to our defensive backs for not getting torched in one-on-one coverage today!

  432. Thunder Says:

    Alvin you are a loser just like the rest of the supposed Bucs fans

  433. Rod Munch Says:

    NEfan – these are scrubs, no one is ‘demoralized’ because some scrubs give up a score. Go drown yourself in clam crowder.

  434. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Ceedee Lamb will be running curcles against this Bowles defense. Pathetic!

  435. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I don’t care if it’s a preseason game. I still don’t trust these clowns on the sidelines man.

  436. HC Grover Says:

    Trask time

  437. Defense Rules Says:

    For heavens sake, that was the Bucs’ 2nd team defense going against the Falcons 1st team offense. We have no depth to start with so what did some of you expect? You got what you wanted; Bowles pulled the starters, so expect to lose the game. Duh.

  438. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Time to work on our running game with a backup QB & KV at RB…..

  439. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    And backup OLine…..work on that running game Byron

  440. Jugheadfla Says:

    Trolls out in force today

  441. HC Grover Says:

    Tricky play

  442. Thunder Says:

    Cmurda ( king loser), not a troll just being honest. There is no other NFL team site with as many losers as this site

  443. Jmarkbuc Says:

    I guess there’s no chance we grow a set of balls before this game is over?

  444. HC Grover Says:


  445. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Leave it up Bowles and company to give Brady his first under 500 season. Clowns

  446. Tucker Says:

    Gabbet again wth

  447. Bobby M. Says:

    Arians touted both Leftwich and Gabbert capable of leading a team…..his credibility is in question.

  448. Jugheadfla Says:

    Another kickoff return in Buffalo, Pats aren’t even trying

  449. cmurda Says:

    Look, put Trask in if we aren’t even going to try.

  450. RustyRhinos Says:

    Hey Thunder what wins are you putting out there? I see a few zingers, and a few dolts, but not much substance. There is a taint in all your rants though.

  451. Tucker Says:

    Do they even care what they have in Trask

  452. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Thunder the keyboard warrior with Mom’s Internet.

  453. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Oh!!! i did not realize the bucs are playing the backups. Seems like no differrence to me.

  454. HC Grover Says:

    No QB could do well with these plays.

  455. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Why do our backups suck so much? We might have some of the worse backups in the league.

  456. Defense Rules Says:

    Wow, now we’ve got the Bucs 3rd team offense going against the Falcons 1st team defense. Boring

  457. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Not even trying to win.

  458. Tucker Says:

    News flash most backs up are terrible that’s why they are not starters

  459. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    We have no depth and why not keep the positive momentum going into the playoffs and hope this bad defensive player doesn’t carry over. The reason why Winfield is still in there is because he’s not as good as people think. Allowing more rookies embarrass this unit ?? At least pull the starters after at least 3 impressive drives instead of this BS.. Bills game is pretty solid

  460. Rod Munch Says:

    Tucker Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:10 pm
    Do they even care what they have in Trask


    They know what they have in Trask, it’s why he was the #4 QB last year and still only the #3 QB this year.

  461. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Stuck on that 17 points

  462. Faspro Says:

    8-9 division champs…lol

  463. TampaBayRudy Says:

    At Jack Clark Yes yes of course. You have all the credentials. None of us have ever been Bucs fans before you. So we concede. Listen, I just worked on the first mule that carried sod at Ray J. I dreamed of playing at Ray J since I was in college. I’ve had beers with more Buccaneers than you have probably watched on television. So knock it off and go back to slobbing on Tom Brady’s knob for a little while while. This is a Buccaneers fan site. We laugh and cry here over our organization, not just one star player that happens to grace us with their presence. Not Steve Young, not Doug Williams, and not Tom Brady. Will be here with the sorriest of the sorry and the best of the best while you’re starstruck and buying fan gear at some NFL store because you can’t get one player to sign your stuff. Pop the clutch if you don’t feel like you don’t belong here 👉🏼👌🏻

  464. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    lol…everyone screams to pull the starters then complains when we lose as a result…what else would happen? lol

  465. NEfan Says:

    Rod, if the goal was to play scrubs why play key starters at all. I prefer bearded clams.

  466. SufferingSince76 Says:

    If the Bucs aren’t going to try to win, I’m not going to try to watch.

  467. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Another kickoff return in Buffalo, Pats aren’t even trying

    Pats were probably told to let the Bills win.
    Gotta keep that feel good Hamlin narrative going.

  468. Faspro Says:

    Against crap teams…

  469. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Tucker plz i have seen teams with good depth ag least be competitive. This team has no depth whatsoever

  470. Tucker Says:

    Yeah but considering the cap and most likely Brady is gone get him some reps if he is going surprise some people let him at least try

  471. NEfan Says:

    Pat’s were leading 17-14 before the kick off. If Pat’s win they’re in.

  472. HC Grover Says:

    Knew I should of picked Falcons.

  473. Rod Munch Says:

    NEfan – you prefer the breaded men you mean, because you’re a pecker lover.

    Also Winfield is the only starter out there, and that’s because everyone else is injured. White, Ryan, Neal.

    With that said, don’t play with a safety is the answer. No reason Winfield should be out there in garbage time, and I don’t care if you pulled Thomkins off offense to play safety, just put in anyone else.

  474. AmauryGuzman Says:

    At this point nothing would surprise me next week wiht this team. This is what you get with Bowles and co.

  475. Tucker Says:

    The depth is playing Atlantas starters get out of your delusions please. You are just embarrassing yourself at this point just to be a negative Nancy.

  476. cmurda Says:

    Fair enough Bonzai. I know you’re right but still we want to win. It’s just the natural tendency when the ship starts sinking. If we are going to try to preserve guys and sort of punt the game. At least let Trask get some work in and throw to backups.

  477. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    thompkins catches everything

  478. NEfan Says:

    Rod, obviously you don’t know what a bearded clam is. That’s OK Nassib doesn’t either.

  479. cmurda Says:

    @TBRudy. Perfectly said.

    @TBBF. He’s gotta be giving the Cowboys something to think about. Love his energy and he looks like a quick developing weapon.

  480. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    4th quarter and Winfield is still playing. SMH!

  481. Tucker Says:

    Wouldn’t mind seeing thompkins see some reps with the other ones.

  482. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Getting a peak at life without Brady

  483. cmurda Says:

    I can’t help but tip my cap to NEfan’s last comment. Now, that was funny.

  484. Thunder Says:

    Haha, Rudy, sorry to get you sooo upset! Haha!

  485. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    KEEP YOUR EYE ON 90 !!! Soft, quits on plays, and shows no effort !! That’s disgusting to see, but glad JTS stepped his game up

  486. Jack Clark Says:

    @Rudy nothing you said contradicted my previous statements ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Stop being miserable and enjoy the GOAT

  487. DungyDance Says:

    Someone else already said it, but Buffalo just scored a second kickoff return for TD today. We haven’t had even 1 since 2010. I can still remember our first one. “Run Michael run!”

    Oh well. Back to this sh# show against the dreadful falcons.

  488. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “At least let Trask get some work in and throw to backups.”

    1000% agree!

  489. Rod Munch Says:

    #27 reminds me of Rod ‘The Toast’ Jones.

  490. cmurda Says:

    @Tucker. I would not be surprised to see him come out on 4 wide or if the plan calls for it 5 wide in the Cowboys game. Just a few snaps. He’s proving his hands and he’s dynamic.

  491. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Doesn’t Michael Spurlock have a son in college?

  492. Rod Munch Says:

    In fairness to #27, that was a great catch by London. Of course if #27 wasn’t 5 yards off the WR when the ball was thrown, maybe he’s there a beat quicker and that is an incompletion.

  493. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Our backups are garbage. I think Brady is still ticked. I think finishing above 500 means something to him. The guy has never finished with an under 500 record.

  494. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask is going to come in, down by 6, with 2 minutes left in the game, and Leftwich will have him hand off for a run up the middle 3 times in a row.

  495. cmurda Says:

    Spurlock. He never really did anything else but Spurlock broke that dreaded curse.

  496. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Jusssst when you think you can FINALLY see a little Kyle Trask for you Gator fans – Zyon McCollum is like: nah, not today

  497. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Rod Munch I hope only down by 6

  498. Rod Munch Says:

    Lovie had his team up to a big lead, now they’re just chucking the ball long for INTs… almost like he’s tanking, trying to lose to get the #1 pick…

    Good on him, would be beyond stupid for the Texans to try to win that game and lose the top pick to pick up a W over the Colts.

  499. Bangkoak Bucs Fan Says:

    This is gonna just get embarrassing

  500. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:22 pm
    @Rod Munch I hope only down by 6


    Sorry, I mean 60.

  501. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    cmurda Says
    “Spurlock. He never really did anything else but Spurlock broke that dreaded curse.”

    I know…but he was good luck for us.

    Ahhh, crap. TD Falcons. Put in Trask…let’s see if he can handle pressure.

  502. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Announcers lauding Ridder,,,,,but not mentioning he is playing our backups…

  503. HC Grover Says:

    Disgusting and we are stuck with Bowzo next year. The Box Turtle Bowzo Plan has no chance against the Cowboys.

  504. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @Rod Munch LOL!

  505. Jugheadfla Says:

    Trask time baby!…..lol

  506. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    OK….let’s see how this line holds up….down 2 scores in the 4th quarter with Trask at QB…..lots of luck, Kyle

  507. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Kind of glad I’ll be drinking my face off in Mexico next weekend and probably won’t be subjected to what I am afraid is going to be a one and done in the second season.

  508. HC Grover Says:

    Trask to Bowzo…Pleas don’t put me in there.

  509. Delabucs Says:

    So sad

  510. NEfan Says:

    Atl gets 3, Trask comes in throws the winning TD to Thompkins and instantly start him against Dallas. Did I not call this earlier this week?

  511. Gofortheface30 Says:

    If we wanted Caleb Williams next yr then we can just play the guys we have out on the field now. Would be a spectacularly bad 0-17 record

  512. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Benching Gabbert. Maybe coach does want to win.

  513. firethecannons Says:

    hand off till game over 3 n out over and over score will be Falcons by +21

  514. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So, assuming Tom retires or moves on (very likely), does Bowles focus on completing the Defense build? Or does Licht go after Oline?

  515. Rod Munch Says:

    AmauryGuzman Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:21 pm
    Our backups are garbage.


    Just the reality of the salary cap. The Bucs had good depth in 2020, and have lost key guys every year since. Frankly they’ve done a great job keeping as many guys as they have.

  516. RGA Says:

    Trask gets the last 8 minutes down by 10 playing with 3rd stringers.

  517. HC Grover Says:

    They make Ridder look like Marino.

  518. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Yeah, I’m getting lots of work done, lol.

  519. Coburn Says:

    It’s humourous hearing the announcers getting excited for Atlanta playing against 3rs stingers. I mean I guess they have to have some narrative. Not much to say about Bucs playing all these guys who’ve never had regular season snaps. They do have a few young pieces there as well

  520. Tackleblockwin Says:

    Nothing to really play for today. Get healthy, stay healthy, get ready for next week.

  521. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Trask is in!

  522. DungyDance Says:

    Need to keep a list for all of the nicknames for Bowles I’ve seen here. Bowels, Blowes, Bowzo, Bowleswich. Surely there have been more.

  523. Rod Munch Says:



  524. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    1st down running play for Trask……..not surprised

  525. Jugheadfla Says:

    Let it lose Trask, run up the middle….nothing new here

  526. cmurda Says:

    I like Trasks long throw. That should have been PI but the refs aren’t calling anything against ATL

  527. Rod Munch Says:

    Tompkins held, but they haven’t called that all day on either side, so fair enough.

  528. HC Grover Says:


  529. Buc You Says:

    Can the Bucs fire tye coaching staff after this season despite backing into the playoffs?

    Tod Bowles defense consistently gets ate up by unknown QBs… happens all the time.

  530. Jugheadfla Says:

    Missed PI

  531. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Camarda time

  532. Rod Munch Says:

    Next year it’s Tank with Trask ™ so get used to seeing those 3 and outs.

  533. HC Grover Says:

    Maybe Falcons have an emergency QB they can try

  534. Jugheadfla Says:

    Outstanding debut

  535. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well, time jitters are dealt with. At least he didn’t turn it over.

  536. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    Why didn’t Bowels play Trask the entire 2nd half?

  537. Stormy Says:

    Trask sucks. If Brady moves on, the Bucs are screwed.

  538. tbbucs3 Says:

    What kind of throw was that?

    Admit it…Trask sucks Gator fans

  539. cmurda Says:

    We’ve had the 3rd stringers in there for a while. Definitely can’t complain when you got Zion trying to cover out there. Bucs would have won this game if starters stay in obviously but it really was the right call by Bowles to take them out IMO

  540. HC Grover Says:

    Is there any chance that after the Cowboys blow out the Bucs they will fire Bowzo?

  541. NEfan Says:

    Dungy you forgot Toilet Bowls, dk head, arse wipe, 3 time LOSER

  542. AmauryGuzman Says:

    8-9 season. Can this team overcome this trashing coaching staff? Stay tuned.

  543. Bucsbeast Says:


  544. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Coaching is stupid. Instead of trying to lose with gabbert, should try to win with Trask.

  545. View from 132 Says:

    If you are going to be Bowles QB, winning the game when you are down 10 with 9 minutes left is just the job description.

  546. Rod Munch Says:

    Stormy Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:30 pm
    Trask sucks. If Brady moves on, the Bucs are screwed.


    With the Bucs in legit cap hell, if Brady moves on, then you’re doing a full rebuild. Trask will get his chance to play, and if stinks, like I assume, then he’ll get the Bucs the #1 pick in 2024. If he doesn’t stink, looks great, then awesome, you got a QB.

    But with the cap next year, it’s going to be extremely difficult to keep Brady. Not impossible, but very difficult.

  547. cmurda Says:

    Trask is throwing to backups with a backup O Line. Let’s setlle down and wait until we got apples to apples.

  548. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Does anyone really think the Falcons beat us with our 1st string?

  549. bob Says:

    get used to this when tb12 walks out that door

  550. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Let’s beat this guy up….he’s trying to burn us….

  551. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Rod Munch there’s ways to manipulate the cap. Bucs woild do anything to get Brady back here.

  552. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The only reason AWJ is in the game is he is the only one who can tackle.

  553. Gofortheface30 Says:

    Rod munch – I’d be on board with that. Too many young super star quarterbacks now. Yes most are in AFC, but if the Bucs ever have visions of being relevant again they need a young cornerstone to build around for the next 15yrs. Otherwise it’s gnna be Burrow/Mahomes/Allen’s etc league while we toil in obscurity.

  554. AmauryGuzman Says:

    This team has trash depth.

  555. Irishmist Says:

    Advantages to losing: It improves our draft position over the Jags. It negatively affects the draft position of a division rival. It will tick Brady off, and give him motivation because no QB has ever taken a losing team to a SB win. Disadvantages: hurts our momentum, whose value is questionable at best, especially with a veteran team.

  556. TampaBayRudy Says:

    @Thunder and @Jack Clark: I mean, we are the Yucs. We know that. This team has had two important people come in and do huge things. Everything else has been small market pain and bad ownership business. But we are true blue. Some of us grew up listening to the cannons go off on Sundays, dreaming we would some day go in and watch a game in person. When you come on here trolling, it’s lame. Enjoy the fanship, the atmosphere, and make nice with us miserables. We have the crappiest circumstances. Can’t even watch TB12 overcome a losing season because we have the worst coaching staff since Lovie Smith

  557. Jugheadfla Says:

    No more holding calls today by the refs

  558. Rod Munch Says:

    Trask was by far the worst pick of Licht’s tenure. You have a SB team and you need guys who can play right away, and you take a very very green QB who has no chance to play for years. If the Bucs took a guard or tackle, or maybe another LB or safety, heck, even a WR – all those positions would have helped the team bigly.

  559. 1#bucsfan Says:

    2 passes and y’all say trask is garbage. Haha y’all have no clue

  560. bucnut2 Says:

    Why is Minefield STILL on the field? He’s our best defensive player

  561. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I wouldn’t even be watching if not for Trask now. I don’t expect him to win…I’m just looking for strong points and weak points. He’s not going to be anywhere near good this first time.

  562. Fire the Gannons! Says:

    Thank you Todd Bowles! Now the GOAT can leave this franchise and go wherever he wants, including the slimy Saints, without any repercussions to his legacy. Toilet Bowles denies him the chance to maintain his perfect streak of winning seasons spanning 23 years as well as his perfect 11-0 record against the Falcons. If that doesn’t piss off someone beyond repair nothing ever will.

    Good bye Tampa! Good bye Toilet Bowles! (and Arians for repeatedly throwing him under the bus over the last 3 years) My guess now is that he goes to New Orleans just to give a giant middle finger to Tampa next year.

    I, for one, will be loving every moment of that Disem-bowles-ment (the “s” is silent).

  563. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    What this season has revealed is that we really miss Whitehead.

  564. ViSyl Says:

    Why do we still play gabbert? Isn’t it already obvious he isn’t good and our future??

  565. unbelievable Says:

    Why is Winfield still out there?

    Do they think he’s regressed THAT much?

  566. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Bucs are a 1 and done team next week. Backups and starters showing same results. Falcons have a first time QB and our veteran Backups and some starters cant even put up a fight…. pathetic.

  567. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:


    I was wondering the same thing.

  568. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Ftg you are welcome to go become a lions fan.

  569. Jugheadfla Says:

    Com’on Munch, can’t even spell it right but Auguyo?

  570. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Anthony Nelson in coverage on 4th down,……nice

  571. bucnut2 Says:

    If 31 gets hurt, Bowles need to GO!!!

  572. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I would clean house with thsi coaching staff no matter what happens next week.

  573. cmurda Says:

    I literally don’t think they have a safety to play for Winfield. I think every backup may already be playing.

  574. Rod Munch Says:

    AmauryGuzman Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:33 pm
    Rod Munch there’s ways to manipulate the cap. Bucs woild do anything to get Brady back here.


    I agree with that statement about the cap in general, but the Bucs have already done all those tricks to get us this far. While they can keep Brady, it means losing a lot of guys like Shaq, Fournette, Donovan Smith and not resigning David, Dean, SMB, etc.

    It would take an awesome draft to overcome that, and you’d do stuff like more Wirfs to LT, etc.

    With that said I’d do anything to keep Brady around. Once he leaves, it’s another 2-decades of being losers that no one cares about.

  575. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Bowles is staying, sadly. Needs to hire a DC. Just not working right now.

  576. HC Grover Says:


  577. Jugheadfla Says:

    Guys, we have no Safety backups right now, he has no choice

  578. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    All I’ve heard this whole game is how great Algeer and Ridder is!!!!!!

  579. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Now surprise them and put Brady back out there.

  580. I’m not tired anymore we just won the Super Bowl!! Says:

    Well we scored 17 go figure

  581. SOGGY Says:

    Looks like we are going to the PLAYOFFS with a losing record…LOL

  582. bucnut2 Says:

    CMurda- I don’t care. Get 31 out.

  583. BucfaninMi Says:


  584. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Id say Trask was still a worse pick than Aguayo because of the stakes attached…..you have a team coming off a superbowl win and you basically waste a 2d round pick on street clothes…..

    At least Aguayo was dressed for all those missed fields goals…..

  587. bucnut2 Says:

    Play ANYONE at safety other than 31. Neal is not healthy???

  588. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I say, depending on who they bring in, roll with Trask next year. If he does badly, we get a good pick. But hope he does very well.

  589. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    But we need a great QB coach first.

    Com’on Munch, can’t even spell it right but Auguyo?


    Roberto never missed a kick that mattered, shouldn’t have been cut, and no, that pick was not worse than Trask, for the reasons mentioned, that you had a SB team and could have used a top backup lineman, or top backup safety, another WR, etc.

    If it wasn’t for the SB team, then you’d be correct, as taking a lottery ticket on a developmental QB isn’t the worst thing in the world, but with that team, it was a complete waste of a pick and you needed that depth somewhere else.

  591. HC Grover Says:

    Bowzo is a stiff

  592. NEfan Says:

    cmurda because Trask is a BACK UP!!! Playing with his peers.

  593. bucnut2 Says:

    BB- forget Trask, not going with him ever. Sorry ONLY Gators want to see Trask for an entire year.

    Neal, Edwards, Ryan — all injured I believe, that’s all your other safeties.

    I know why Winfield is playing, but don’t care, pull him anyways and just don’t use a safety for all I care.

  595. BucfaninMi Says:

    Bowles needs to be fired period. He left this team in a non- competitive position. Purposely losing is unacceptable! Play all the games to win. Bowles has a loser mentality.

  596. Jugheadfla Says:

    Trade for Brock Purdy

  597. Randall Says:

    Wow, what happened to the Bucs wanting to win so Brady didn’t have a non-winning season to blight his record????

  598. AmauryGuzman Says:

    My guess is that the bucs will be on prime time next week on sunday night. That’s my guess .

  599. Jugheadfla Says:

    Neal is not a safety

  600. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    That was PI

  601. Rod Munch Says:

    That pass to Perriman is my issue with Trask, he doesn’t have an NFL arm. He shows decent zip at times, but only if he has time and really sits his feet. When rushed, his zip disappears and the ball hangs.

  602. bucnut2 Says:

    Trask looks AWESOME!!

  603. DungyDance Says:

    Miller wide open on the incomplete bomb pass.

  604. Jack Clark Says:

    Tom Brady first quarterback to win a super bowl in his home stadium

    Also–Tom Brady first quarterback to win a super bowl with a losing record🙏

  605. bucnut2 Says:

    nice dump-off!!!

  606. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Sure Byron Leftwich, call deep passes for Kyle Trask but not for Tom Brady. Brilliant strategy

  607. HC Grover Says:

    The Yucs

  608. bucnut2 Says:

    WOW!! is trask accurate.

  609. cmurda Says:

    I don’t even know the names of some of these O Linemen. Who in the world is Mouchin or whetever it said.

  610. ElioT Says:

    Losers with a ticket to the post season.

    Total joke.

  611. HC Grover Says:

    Over and out. They suck. Dallas will obliterate them.

  612. Chuck Stevens Says:

    Dallas is licking their chops ! Hate to say ,we aren’t playoff calibre or ready.
    Todd Bowles is NOT head coach material !
    D.C is great spot for him.
    Just another observation ,Devin white cannot cover receivers in the flat .
    In zone he seems out of place ,all the time.
    Disgusting season all together,it will be over next week .
    Cowboys 34 Bucs 21

  613. Bangkoak Bucs Fan Says:

    Well…… Trask showed me he’s got the incomplete pass down pat.

  614. Rod Munch Says:

    Saints lost. LOL!

  615. cmurda Says:

    Trask is throwing to 3rd stringers with a 3rd string at best O Line who is getting him murdered. No Qb in the world has a chance.

  616. BucfaninMi Says:

    Buccaneers are losers. The best is behind them. Decades of failure to come

  617. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    My daughter has a better arm then Kyle Trash !!! Wow he’s not good

  618. Rod Munch Says:

    Jack Clark Says:
    Also–Tom Brady first quarterback to win a super bowl with a losing record🙏


    That would be incredible. I’ll take it!

  619. Jack Clark Says:

    Trask makes good decisions but needs to improve his arm talent. This team isn’t built around his strengths and weaknesses so he gets a pass.

  620. NEfan Says:

    If this was Bowels plan, WHY start any of the key players??? I guess the same reason you fake punt on your own 27, try a 55 & 53 yd FG knowing your kicker doesn’t have that leg, fail to call a TO prohibating the best comeback QB of all time a chance to get in FG range and blitz the QB know for being the best in the league against the blitz with 26 seconds left in a PO game.

  621. Stormy Says:

    Can we put the gator fanboy Trask nonsense to bed now? He showed absolutely nothing.

    If Brady doesn’t return, this team will be back in last place with Gabbert or Trask running the show.

  622. Coburn Says:

    Meh not a ton of conclusions to be made about Trask based on only half a dozen throws. Some good, some bad. That valo was underthrown. Does that mean he doesn’t have the arm or just misjudged/lack of timing with perriman? I dunno

  623. Rod Munch Says:

    Agreed. However you can watch the throws and just see if he’s on the money or not, and how he throws the ball, and he looks like a 3rd stringer.

  624. Tackleblockwin Says:

    You guys crack me up lol. We are playing backups and you all acting like Brady and the starters are out there.

  625. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Toilet Bowles is trash. Can these players overcome this awful coaching staff? Stay tuned.

  626. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I’m not a college fan, so it doesn’t matter to me where they come from…though I would probably be partial to a USF player if we had one at QB, just for loyalty reasons.

    The way I’m understanding it, the cap issues will hurt us if we go after a veteran QB in the off season. We’d have to lose some Offensive guys.

    That said…I hate to say it, but Evans is our biggest trade bait.

    Lavante may just retire.

  627. AmauryGuzman Says:

    I am just mad that this team couldn’t even be over 500 . Joke

  628. Cobraboy Says:

    Can’t judge Trask. This is equivalent to a Bucs PS game vs. All -In ATL

  629. Rod Munch Says:

    I had not paid attention to the AFC… The Steelers can still make the playoffs. Amazing job by Tomlin.

  630. AmauryGuzman Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai there’s ways to free up cap space. We shall see.

  631. TampaBayRudy Says:

    It’s in Todd bowles’s contract that he’s not allowed to let the team score more than 17 points or he loses his incentives. Facts.

  632. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Call the time out…..give Kyle some work…..terrible coaching

  633. ClwJB Says:

    Hope and pray Jensen can play next week and Hainsey didn’t really pull a hamstring like the tv broadcast stated

    This was a Bucs victory until we pulled everyone we could and the kept every starter in…

    This was a preseason game, we did not play to win

  634. Jack Clark Says:

    Rod Munch Says:
    January 8th, 2023 at 3:48 pm
    That would be incredible. I’ll take it!

    🤣🤣🤣🤣 Beers on me!!!

  635. Tampabaybucfan Says:


  636. Rod Munch Says:

    Buccaneer Bonzai- You can’t trade Evans, his cap hit would be huge. All those times that Evans restructured his deal, and pushed money back, that all comes due at some point. Godwin you could trade and Wirfs, by far, would get the biggest return. But both are young enough that you’d want to keep him for a rebuild.

  637. NEfan Says:

    You most certainly can judge him off this showing. Starting QB’s play with backups all the time. Plus he’s playing against backups.

  638. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I bet there’s not a fan on this here website who would have predicted 8-9 for a record. This team underperformed to incredible heights.

  639. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Never seen Tom run off the field, but definitely not happy about something

  640. DBS Says:

    Love listening to people and their BS. If Brady wants to come back they will work it out. You are not the experts . They are.

  641. NEfan Says:

    Brady is PISSED, he is not a loser like his HC, he wanted to put his best foot forward to win and once AGAIN Toilet Bowles neutered him.

  642. TampaBayRudy Says:

    Thank you Todd Bowles! You are such an exemplary Hall of Fame coach. Look at the product you put on the field week to week. From the Jets to the Bucs, you have done such an amazing job! Your quarterback, Tom Brady, broke another passing record this season! I’m so thankful for you. Even though we have a losing record, you still got us in the playoffs with your brilliant coaching. Thanks, Coach. Also, thanks for all the passion and enthusiasm on the sidelines; we tune in every week just to see you motivate our whole team to succeed and not underwhelm!!!

  643. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Mike Tomlin is helluva coach.

  644. Rod Munch Says:

    TampaBayRudy – we should take a collection in order to run that full page in the paper.

    Except there is no paper anymore. Oh well, it’s a great idea.

  645. Rod Munch Says:

    What are the Texans doing? They just had the #1 pick, and instead scored a TD on a 4th and 20 and now can lose the top pick. Morons.

  646. Bucco2 Says:

    Good thing most of these guys don’t play.

  647. Rod Munch Says:

    Texans should fire Lovie for not losing that game. What an idiot.

  648. alton d green Says:

    tampabayrudy; you forgot a couple things. Our S. border is secure. It was a great ideal to pull our troops out of Afghanistan before you get innocent people out and Cackling Caramel is a fantastic VP. Good job Todd
