Did David Tepper toss a drink toward Antoine Winfield Jr. on Sunday?

He should have.

With an incredible hustle play in a season full of ’em, Winfield took center stage at the game’s biggest moment in a 9-0 victory that clinched a third consecutive division title for the Buccaneers.

D.J. Chark was on his way to the end zone early in the second quarter when Tampa Bay’s snubbed Pro Bowl safety swooped in and caused a fumble at the 1-yard line. The ensuing touchback preserved a 3-0 lead and the offensively-challenged Panthers never recovered en route to their second straight shutout loss.

It was a sensational effort by a sensational player, similar to the fumble Winfield forced against Atlanta QB Desmond Ridder at the 1-yard line back in October.

There isn’t much to talk about on the offensive side, except to say Baker Mayfield struggled with his accuracy and rhythm while his pass protection was no bargain.

Still, the Bucs did just enough to advance to face the fading Eagles.

Carolina simply didn’t have enough playmakers as Tampa Bay registered its first shutout since a 21-0 triumph at San Francisco in 2010.

The Bucs allowed only 68 passing yards — the fewest by a Tampa Bay opponent since the Panthers had only 55 through the air in a 28-21 victory in 2009. The difference that day was the Panthers ran 48 times for 267 yards in Tampa.

On Sunday, Carolina was limited to 199 total yards, converting 3-of-12 on third down. The Bucs needed every bit of that swarming defense because they averaged fewer yards per snap (3.6) than the bumbling Panthers.

Mayfield gained just 137 yards on 20 completions and his longest strike on a windy afternoon was a 20-yarder to Cade Otton. Defensive tackle Derrick Brown had his way with Tampa Bay’s interior and Mike Evans was no factor, despite eight targets.

“It wasn’t a pretty win by any means,” said Mayfield, who fought through sore ribs and a sore ankle in another display of his toughness. The Bucs threw 568 passes during the regular season … Mayfield threw 566 of ’em.

Todd Bowles showed a one-win improvement over his first year on the sidelines and the Bucs have won 5-of-6 heading into the postseason. A competitive showing against the defending NFC champions should solidify his future in Tampa.

Here’s how the Bucs made quick work (game was over in 2:35) of the sorry Panthers and extended their season for at least one more week:

* Nobody appreciates Winfield’s versatility more than Ronde Barber, who checked all the boxes during a 16-year Hall of Fame career. Even Bowles, who played safety for eight seasons, has to marvel at the way Winfield routinely wrecks opposing game plans with instincts, preparation and athleticism. He’ll be the top safety on my list when submitting my All-Pro ballot to the Associated Press on Monday.

* Rachaad White ran for 75 yards and added 18 yards as a target, capping a very productive second season. He is playing with confidence and White has emerged as one of the league’s top backs in total yards from scrimmage. No reason to think he won’t continue to grow.

* What a first season in Tampa for Chase McLaughlin, whose 57-yard FG just before the half doubled the Buc lead. Bowles, the driving force behind the upgrade from Ryan Succop to McLaughlin, couldn’t have asked for more from his veteran kicker.

* Tampa Bay’s offensive line should have done a better job protecting a wounded quarterback. The Panthers applied consistent pressure up the middle, denying Mayfield an opportunity to step up and throw with authority.

* Mayfield tried his best, but he was clearly off all day. Carolina could have picked off two or three passes and Mayfield missed a wide-open Evans downfield, a play that should have resulted in an easy touchdown.

* Congrats to Chris Godwin for topping 1,000 receiving yards for the third consecutive season. Now it’s up to Dave Canales to design new plays in the red zone for a gritty player who has caught only five TD passes in the past two seasons.

* Yes, that was Joe Tryon-Shoyinka making a big play.

* The Bucs closed with three straight road wins. That’s not easy to pull off in this league, regardless of the opponents.

* Devin White has made his share of flash plays in the past month. He looms as a potential key factor in containing Jalen Hurts as a scrambler next week.

* There was lots of negativity surrounding the Bucs in October and November, but that’s nothing compared to what the reeling Eagles are dealing with at the moment. Fickle Philly fans will be ready to revolt if the Bucs advance to the divisional round. That’s pressure, folks. Advantage, Buccaneers.

Yes, that warranty is real!

  1. Rod Munch Says:

    Bucs defense finished the year 7th in points allowed.
    Bucs offense finished the year 20th in points scored.

    The offensive points number gets even worse as you look at the numbers, literally every team behind them — with the exception of the Panthers — lost their starting QB or their starter got benched.

    Wow, so that means in terms of starting QBs who started all year, Mayfield put up the 2nd worst points per game.

    Mayfield had better have a great game next week, and win the game, if there’s any thought of bringing him back.

  2. Dave Pear Says:

    The Cowboys came in for the playoffs last season wheezing on fumes. They killed us.

    If Bowles doesn’t give Canales the directive to attack the Eagles early instead of the predictable turtle hope not to lose gameplan, it will be a repeat. Two words as to why.



  3. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    David Tepper is the new Robert Irsay.

  4. Zzbucs Says:

    Great article Sage.

    Negativity continues at least here in JBF….. some fans here are simple disgusting…

    Something maybe you didn’t said Ira….Carlton Davies Keeps avoiding every single tackling situation….. Makes me sick!! He should consider playing Tennis, no contact sport….

  5. Paratrooper Buc Says:

    Winfield earned a big contract and should be all pro. He was defensive MVP.

    McLaughlin has a leg and was the offensive MVP.

    JTS shocked the group of fans I was watching the game with as we did a double take at his play.

    We have two 1000 yard receivers. White is growing. Fix the Oline issues and Baker gets even better (no qb is good unprotected and hurt).

  6. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    Winfield deserves a few votes for DPOY.

    The pro bowl literally could not be more of a joke, I have no idea why anyone cares about that award, other than players who have bonuses tied to it.

    What you should care about is being an ALL-PRO, and he should, better, make that team.

    In any case he’s the best safety in football and he’s going to get paid like it, and I’m sure that is what he cares about the most.

  8. Drunkinybor Says:

    I’m so glad we got rid of Jamie’s Winston. Dude just defended handing the ball off in victory formation essentially tricking the defense to get a bum Jamal Williams a touchdown with a minute left. Ignoring what the head coach called for. He said take a knew. Winston said I think it should be forgotten, especially when the score is already 41-17,” Winston said. “I don’t know how much worse it can get.
    “My intention was to lead the team that I’ve been with the entire year. We made a collective decision that we wanted to give one of our guys — who they fight with blood, sweat and tears in every game — in the end zone. And I’m going to feel good about it.”
    That guy can lead a hunch of teenagers and 20 year olds but not grown men with families. Make no mistake most of that team is embarrassed it’s just that little click of night life morons who did this.

  9. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    Jameis did nothing wrong. Arthur Smith shouldn’t be such a sore sadsack.

  10. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Rod, the defense (especially pass D) has played far worse than the 7th in points suggest.

    But it not on coaching as much as it is being no pass rush, Davis/Dean and Ryan Neal being a flop.

    Jason Licht needs to find better players on defense cause outside of a few games, the D was very unimpressive this year

  11. Slacker Says:

    Conservative BS play calling will get this team steam rolled. What an absolute waste of weapons. Keep Bowles around and you may as well get used to it. The guy thinks you play not to lose and bank on defense. Hey Todd, your defense isn’t that good and the rules favor the offense. Open the run up with the pass

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Tbbucs3 – I agree that to some degree, but Bowles changed the defense around week 12, and stopped running that God-awful zone that was letting teams run up and down the field and wasting Dean and Davis, and went back to the more aggressive man-to-man defense that they won the SB with in 2020, that they went away from in 2021 when they had all the injuries at corner.

    The defense still had some rough games as they went back to man, and they really really missed Davis last week vs the Saints, but overall, I’ve seen a big improvement over these last 6 games.

    They don’t have much depth, and Shaq is a shell of himself, but if Bowles doesn’t go into a shell vs the Eagles, and stays aggressive, they might have a chance if Baker plays well.

  13. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    David Tepper is the type of guy that tosses drinks on little babies and golden retrievers.

  14. Jeffs grandpa Says:

    Baker shamaker as a lifelong buc fan I can’t EVER remember making it too the playoffs for 4 YEARS straight so have a little bit more gratitude for the time life’s short

  15. I remember 21 Says:

    This embarrassing win (and last bit of the season) set the team back years. Unfortunately I don’t think the Glazers have the foresight and constitution to fire bowles at this point. He’ll stick around, ruin a rookie QB, try to resign & overpay DW45, still game plan like it’s the 70s, team unmotivated & flat on the reg, bad personnel decisions everywhere, have us nowhere near the super bowl, everybody lookin forward to playing us. Great. And then hopefully get fired next year after we’ve wasted ANOTHER season under his terrible “leadership.” Why don’t people understand the team wins in spite of him, not because of him? And what if Canales gets poached after the season? How much faith do you have in bowles next season without him? Ugh. The one positive thing I will genuinely give bowles credit for is the kicker. Anyhow, here we go. And for the record, I’m not too proud to say “I told you so.”

  16. Tbbucs3 Says:

    And wrong agin, Munch. Baker has already earned a contract for next year, barring he ask for an obscene amount

  17. Tbbucs3 Says:

    But agree with Shaq being a shell of himself. He needs to do something in the playoffs to justify his contract

  18. Miller5252 Says:

    It sure would be nice to see the Bucs team that played the Packers and Jags. This team fights to be the Bucs when they lost 6 of 7. Everything on offense looks painfully hard. Nothing is in rhythm, receivers are wide open down the field, Baker is beat up, the line is getting rocked and here comes last years NFC Champoins to a place the Bucs like to lose at. Baker has been the right choice all year, but if today is the best the Bucs can get from him while he’s hurt you might want to get Trask ready. I hope over his career Winfield doesn’t get the David treatment, the kid is way too good!

  19. Let ‘em bake Says:

    Rods take on baker is interesting. Apparently, bakers return is conditional on the following weeks performance only. By this logic ,all losing QBs next week must be let go ( unless locked up contractually) . Interestingly, all remaining nfc QBs are also in the top 10 in passer rating. I guess having a top ten qb does have its advantages.

  20. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    Playoff scheduled to be announced at halftime.

  21. Rusty Shackleford Says:


  22. Todd Says:

    We’re winning the Superbowl this year.

  23. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    The Bills are outplaying the Dolphins, yet they are losing. Unreal.

  24. Rod Munch Says:

    Here’s the teams that score less points than the Bucs, and their QB situation this year…

    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Starting QB played all 17 games
    21. Los Angeles Chargers: Lost starting QB
    22. Minnesota Vikings: Lost starting QB
    23. Las Vegas Raiders: Injured / benched starting QB
    24. Arizona Cardinals: Starting QB out half of season
    25. Washington Redskins: Starting QB injured/benched multiple games
    26. Atlanta Falcons: Starting QB benched
    27. Tennessee Titans: Starting QB injured/benched
    28. Pittsburgh Steelers: Starting QB injured/benched
    29. New York Jets: Starting QB injured
    30. New York Giants: Starting QB injured
    t32. New England Patriots: Starting QB benched
    t32. Carolina Panthers: Starting QB played most of the year

  25. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Bucs playing MNF vs Eagles….extra day for Mayfield to heal up

  26. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    Effing Bills. They should be up 28-14.

  27. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    A wounded Eagles team is still greater than the Bucs team that has played the last two games and all the other bad games we’ve watched. Baker will not be able to outplay their defense and Blowles and Cornales will not be able to out coach them. Not much positive in this playoff game but still hope they can pull it out all the way to the Super Bowl

  28. Rusty Shackleford Says:

    Freaking Bills. They should be up 28-14.

  29. Oz Len Says:

    Rod Munch: He knucklehead, 66 different quarterbacks started this year in the NFL. Only 9 teams started the same QB all year which includes Tampa Bay. So your Mayfield insult is not only wrong it is stupid. Check your facts instead of making stuff up unless you are just ignorant of how statistics work.

    See the above, which is in moderation, about the teams that score less points than the Bucs and who they have at QB.

    If Baker finishes the year with three duds in a row, in the three most important games of his career, he should be given the boot.

    Also, literally no one with any football knowledge, talks about the old QB rating, they use QBR, which takes into account when you make plays and doesn’t reward garbage time stats as much, and doing things like dumping off the ball on 3rd and long.

    In QBR Baker was 16th going into today, and that QBR will go down based on Sunday.

    Baker needs to come out, in the biggest game of his career, and have the game of his life.

    Have some faith in your man, say he’s going to go out and win the game next week. If you actually think he’s good, that should be a no brainer.

  31. Todd Says:

    Wow…we play Monday night!

    Well see above, which covers all the teams.

    But actually if you want to go by starting every game, then Baker was 9th out of 9 since Young didn’t start all 17 games.

    Also, some quick math, it means 10 teams with QBs that didn’t start every game still finished ahead of the Bucs in points scored.

    I have absolutely no clue why you think that is helping you make a good point about Baker. Please explain, I’m curious how you’re spinning this in your mind.

  33. Barbosa Says:

    No doubt in my mind Baker is playing with cracked rib or two from that hit in the Saints game by honey badger. @Joes: isn’t honey badger Todd Bowles’s son in law? Will make for a fun family dinner.

  34. Joe Says:

    @Joes: isn’t honey badger Todd Bowles’s son in law?

    Not sure if Honey Badger married Bowles’ daughter (yet) or not. Do know they had a daughter together. Do know she was an NBA cheerleader.

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    BTW, quick stat update…

    Baker finished the year with a 54.1 QBR, which was 18th in the NFL, which aligns pretty closely with the Bucs finishing 20th in points scored.

    Baker needs to have a great game next MNF if he’s going to come back on anything other than another 1-year prove it deal.

  36. Steven007 Says:

    Munch, even you’re bright enough, I think, to realize that Baker won’t be signing a one-year prove a deal with anyone. He’s done enough to Garner a multiple year deal even in the two to three year range at the least. Perhaps not with us, but with someone. I can think of 5 to 10 teams off the top of my head that would be happy to have him. And I’m not even a huge fan, just a realist. If he’s thought of as the 16th best quarterback in the league then he’s thought of as better than 16 other guys. Do the math.

  37. Let ‘em bake Says:

    Fair point , Rod. Regardless of playoff outcome, even you know baker will receive no less than a 3 year deal. I can’t predict next weeks game, but a minimum 3 year deal is a lock. Like I’ve said all year, geno smith deal as floor, Daniel jones deal as ceiling. Raiders, steelers, possibly falcons ( their draft order screams qb) and Bucs may all be bidding for him. The one year deal is even beneath you.

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    Steven007 – Well the great thing is that it doesn’t matter what I think, all Baker has to do is go out and win the game vs the Eagles, and he’ll get that big money deal.

    I sincerely hope he has the game of his life and destroys the pieces of garbage from Philly, and the trash that lives in that city riot and burn down the place. That would make me very happy.

  39. ModHairKen Says:

    All this crap talk about Mayfield. Look at the C and Gs he played behind. And RT was average. No TEs.

    He took hits all year.

    You ungrateful morons. He was one win better than Brady was last year and got them to the playoffs.

  40. Buddha Says:

    @Rod Munch…weak analysis of Baker’s stats. You can’t just ignore the lousy rushing stats, ranked 31 or 32 in the league. Baker has been thoroughly beaten up since the Indy game. Give him a quality center and left guar and then let’s talk.

  41. 1#bucsfan Says:

    Like most I’m conflicted with baker. Yes he’s got us to the playoffs barely but he did. Defense got us today baker did terrible today. He shouldn’t have played being that hurt. He’s inconsistent. Maybe another year with our offense and canales and he could do better ? Idk but if he comes out plays Monday like he did today then no. Win a playoff game and bring him back but not on a huge deal. We don’t have the money. Winfield wirfs and Evans are all more valuable then baker.

  42. Paratrooper Buc Says:

    Rod Munch,

    I wrote all pro. That counts for HOF way more than the BS pro bowl popularity contest.

  43. Rod Munch Says:

    Paratrooper – Sorry man, you’re right, I misread that. I guess I’m so used to see people whining about the Pro Bowl, something I think is meaningless. My bad.

    Like most I’m conflicted with baker. Yes he’s got us to the playoffs barely but he did. Defense got us today baker did terrible today.


    That’s why, in my opinion, he has to have a good game vs the Eagles. If he goes out again and stinks up the place, finishes the year with three straight duds, in three pressure situations, I don’t see how any GM gives him a big deal. He’s too inconsistent to put big money on, and his numbers show that he’s just a middling QB with a very very bad track record. Every alarm bell should be going off saying he’s going to have a big fall off next year.

    But, again, none of that matters if he beats the Eagles, do that and the Bucs will pretty much be obligated to bring him back for a year, and maybe in year 2 he plays a bit better? Personally, I doubt it, but he’d have earned the opportunity.

    Not sure there is a much more fair deal than that.

  45. Paratrooper Buc Says:

    Rod Munch

    Appreciate the apology and respect that you did that. You are spot on that Winfield is the best safety currently.

    As for Baker, you are right to question his inconsistency. Yes the run game and OLine have issues. However, by game 17 he should be like Brady and throwing that ball away under 2.5 second. By 4-5 seconds he deserves the sack. Or he is inconsistent in throws. I would like to see how he does with a better OLine, White is better and Canales has more experience.

    I do not think he is elite. As Brady commented there is a lot of mediocre playing in the nfl. With our current Oline and run game he is medicore (good days and the bad days average out to that in my view). I think he will be offered a 2-3 year deal by the Bucs. However, his bad playing the last few weeks will cost him money unless he has a good to great game next week. I do think the Bucs offer will not be as high as he would like and shockingly other teams will make offers that may be slightly higher, longer or more guaranteed money. Before the games the announcers and commentators were talking how great he is and he has had his best year. But it’s not a great year compared to the top 12 qbs. The issue is how much is that worth and for how long? That consistency is were I give pause. I see us keeping him as Licht, Bowles, Canales and Baker will sell it that they did far better than projected. I looked it up and two examples: sports illustrated had Bucs at 2-15 record while espn ranked them 30th. What’s your idea for a different qb than baker? I just don’t see a better option. Makes little sense to get another journeyman qb or any qb with similar stats as Baker. The draft is a crap shoot and you could end up worse. I see Bucs either just signing Baker or sign baker to 2-3 years and trade up a bit to draft a qb (5-15 range) then groom that person to take over.

  46. Rod Munch Says:

    Paratrooper Buc Says:

    The biggest issue with Baker will be his salary, I think – but again it will very much depend on how he plays vs the Eagles. If he bombs, yet again, in a pressure situation, I really really doubt he’ll get big money from anyone. But, with that said, he’ll still get a lot more than he got this year, regardless. If he wins that Eagles game, and looks good doing it, then the Bucs are pretty much obligated to bring him back.

    As for alternatives, the one that would fit this offense, that has a ton of upside still, that won 5 of his last 7 on a worse team, who looked much better at the end of the year than the beginning of the year, and who wouldn’t be too expensive – that would be Justin Fields, who will be available. The Bears will talk up like they might keep him to drive the price up, but I figure in the end he’ll likely cost a 3rd rounder, and you’d have him on a rookie deal still. He’s been playing pretty good lately, has been more consistent than Baker in the 2nd half the season, and has played with only 1 NFL level WR. If you get Fields, then you’re freeing up money for Evans as well – who has to be brought back regardless of who the QB is. Also, in this offense, if you have a true rushing QB, you really open things up.

    That is where I’d go if Baker puts up another dud and embarasses himself, the team and the city vs the Eagles.

  47. Saskbucs Says:

    Dave Pear nailed it up top.

  48. Bring back the lawn chairs Says:

    Three strait nfc south champs. You gotta like that. I know I do. They just don’t give those things out you know.
    You gotta be in it to win it.
    And we’re in it!
    Go Bucs!

  49. Defense Rules Says:

    Rod … ‘The biggest issue with Baker will be his salary, I think – but again it will very much depend on how he plays vs the Eagles.’

    Agree with the first part Rod … Baker had a turn-around year & this represents his best opportunity to cash in on it. He’ll be looking for at least a 3-year contract for upwards of $30 mil per year, with at least half of that guaranteed. And he’ll get it, just not from the Bucs because we don’t have it.

    But after watching him yesterday, he’s so beaten up that he had no business being on the field IMO, and that would’ve hurt us against any other team except the Panthers. Barring several good-fortune plays that went against the Panthers, we would’ve lost that game (Winfield’s FF at the goal line AND Dean’s recovery in the end zone negating Panthers’ 1st TD, their missed FG, and having their 2nd TD called back due to a penalty). The football gods were surely smiling on us yesterday.

    Still, it was a gutsy performance on his part & future employers will surely take that into account. The one team that seems to be best structured for him right now is the Falcons. Very good defense (before yesterday), strong running game & TEs, and enough salary CAP $$$ & draft picks to fix their remaining problems. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them make him a 3-year offer PLUS draft a young QB this year.

  50. Hodad Says:

    Baker, and Bowles equals .500 football. After two years Bowles is 17-17 as Bucs H.C., and 0-1 in a lone home playoff loss. Make it 0-2 next Monday. By all means let’s build off Bowles, and Baker. I bet after that offensive output yesterday the seaon tickets are selling like crazy. Can’t wait to see what these two can accomplish next season.

  51. geno711 Says:

    Was not a Baker fan coming into the year and don’t think he looked that good the last two games with the eyeball test.

    But overall for the season, all his statistical numbers showed he had a strong season. Including his passer rating that was 12th highest this year at 94.6.

    Really a much more accurate stat than ESPN’s made up QBR. Please people stop watching ESPN for all your sports information. They are so biased. They no longer even give the passer rating stat on their site.

    Or be lemmings like Rod Munch and keep quoting QBR and ignore the more accurate passer rating statistic.

  52. Paratrooper Buc Says:

    Rod Munch

    Justin Fields definitely struggles with only Moore as his best target and OLine issues. Also, he hasn’t been developed properly in my view. If he came to the Bucs or likely the Falcons, he would need an offensive minded coach and a better QB coach than Chicago. He would be a project to change the years with a bad offense that has wired his brain to pass and not have to run around like a chicken with his head cut off. He is athletic and tough. He needs to learn to be a passer more or he will end up too dependent on legs that won’t work as well in his 30’s.

  53. garro Says:

    Great stuff Ira!

    That is two of those almost identical hustle plays this year and he is an alternate?

    You can arguably chaulk up two plus wins to his gamechanger plays this season. Alternate?

    Go Bucs!

  54. SteveK Says:


    I love you man! God bless you, your fam, lovely dog Cosmo. And, don’t leave the calzones in the trunk!

    I have a question, are you going to write another independent (puff) piece for Bruce young? He stinks.

  55. SteveK Says:

    Bryce Young*

  56. SteveK Says:

    Sorry for the link, Joe, but can you direct me to the piece on CJ Stroud, the rightful #1 pick?

  57. Falconrap Says:

    geno711, sorry, but like Rod said, adjusted QBR is a much better indicator of the overall game a QB is having. A QB can light it up against prevent defense when down 3 scores and look great in the old QB rating, especially if they manage to not throw picks. Adjusted QBR takes situational football into account. And he’s 18th in QBR which is about right. And, that’s in a down year for QB play overall. Lots of bad QB play this year.

  58. BakerBucs Says:

    How is it all u jokers bowles is a clown baker sucks same old boring bs commentary didn’t we just have a winning record into the playoffs & it’s still not good enough for u fake fans plz leave this site we stopped reading the hater crowd months ago so why bother posting we know who u r as soon as I c u r post I skip u r nonsense post never read from a jack azz imho

    Because it’s the truth.
