Veteran free safety Ronde Barber was visibly frustrated when discussing the Buccaneers' 23-21 loss to the Eagles following the game on Sunday. Barber carefully explained exactly why he thought Tampa Bay lost and where the problems lie as the Bucs have lost three straight games.

Agree with Ronde- the dbackfield was bad.  Now - should some blame be set aside for Freeman... I am thinking yes.

Freeman is to blame for the first half, no doubt. But those guys let Foles, of all players, beat them like a ragdoll.

No excuse.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

The entire Defensive Scheme is crap! The middle of the field was wide open all day and has been all year.

This is the NFL and I don't know where this D philosophy came from but it needs to be scrapped next year.

Why no grade of F? Far too kind with a D minus.

The blame is not on free he did his job and gave them the lead in the forth quarter this game is all on the secondary

Did Free run out the clock when given the chance? No. Hardly without blame.

No.

That task was placed squarely in the hands of Dougie Martin.

Some, yes.

But damn the defense let us down today.

The Eagles have been so horrible and they let that goofy lookin' rookie carve us up like a pot roast.

We better draft DBs with our first 5 picks in April

Fair enough. He didn't call the five consecutive runs. But then again our HC and OC didn't believe in him enough to throw it.

I don't think that was the case.

I think it was the coaching staff  being stubborn ass conservative mules.

There were many things to blame Freeman for yesterday but failing to run out the clock was not one of them IMO.

That is on the coaching staff.

Because F stands for Foles.
