    The OL was beyond awful; the coaching decisions at the end of the first half, begining of the 2nd half, end of the game, was like what a rookie coach might do. Coach Smith, you have to do better than this; how embarrassing.

    Well, the ONLY good news from yet another embarrassing debacle is that, if the season ended today, the BUCS will have the number 2 pick in the draft. This assertion is based on the first tiebreaker, which is the strength of schedule. Of the 2 -10 teams, the BUCS have the lowest SOS, according to NFL.com and ESPN. By far. Since it is hard to see them winning any more games, let the Mariota vs. Winston debate begin….

    “That’s how 2-10 football teams play.Close Lovie, that’s how 2-10 teams are coached. Another game, another way to find a way to lose. This one,even I wouldn’t have believed if I didn’t see it myself. 12 men on the field? In the NFL? Yet another shining example why the most inept coaching staff in the league must not be back for 2015. That is if us Buccaneer supporters would like to have a season next year. The futility of this organization has to be seen to be believed.

    It’s EXACTLY how 2-10 teams are coached. I’m not all that concerned the Bucs lost AGAIN at home but worried this HC and GM will be “leading” them anywhere but down the toilet in the future. I don’t want them coaching, evaluating players and certainly not running the draft in 2015. But apparently the Royal Glazerbaums DO so we are SCREWED!

    A decent OC would have made a BIG difference today. For one he would have already fired WarFLOP and his Brownie Screwups. Brate would have been the TE and would have had the good sense not to run on the field with three WRs!

    We need at minimum and new OC and DC. We also need the best QB we can get and help on the O-line then the D-line. I don’t trust the 2 L’s any longer with the roster nor the draft.

      Interested in why your so disappointed with the defense….we did just hold the first place AFC North team to 14 points, including one of the best WRs on the league to 4 catches and 57 yards…I kind of think the defense is getting a lot better, showing real promise, and doing so without LvD….all seems impressive to me….

    I’ll say it again. We’re the only team in the NFL without and OC. The guy running the show has no NFL experience. This is how I expect such a team to perform.

    The next screw up is when they screw up the draft. This organization has major problems that won’t be solved in a year or two.
