      I keep giving the Bucs defense too much credit. I missed it by 13 points

    If the Bucs running game picks up we win. If not a one dimensional passing game will not beat the Ravens, I don’t believe.

    I remember Chris Simms losing his spleen against the Ravens at home years back. I hope the Bucs win, but more importantly I hope they all come out of it with their vital organs! Bucs win, 24 to 17.

    Mike Glennon has proven to be as poised and confident and as good as any QB in the league for at least 3/4 of his game… If He continues to improve and we can get something… Anything Please… Out of our running game and if our Defense can play relatively penalty free we can beat anyone in this league… Last game our defense went from catch and tackle ball to being on top of almost every ball thrown… So if they continue to improve as well we may just very well be unstoppable… As long as Glennon is in there this year and both sides of the ball continue to improve I would put my money on the Bucs every week… Go Bucs…

    Yep, it was the Panthers. They were also the team that took out Caddy twice. I’m just looking for improvement week by week These guys are auditioning for jobs for 2015. Playoffs are just a dream. I doubt Tedford would have helped.

    Schtick # 1 “Take a Break?: As long as Ngata is sitting in the middle of that defensive line we are not going to be able to dislodge him to try to create a running lane up the gut. But the big guy is going to need to take a few breaks in the Florida heat. That’s when we should run against them. Schtick # 2 “Good to the Last Drop”: Many were critical of the play of Mason Foster ….until we saw Dane Fletcher struggle. With Foster back in the lineup he needs to take the proper drop to defend the deep middle and come up quickly on those short passes that have been converting third downs. Schtick # 3 “Dunk vs Punk”: Can you imagine how it felt for the Panthers fans when that punk Steve Smith (now senior)caught that tipped pass for a TD? That guy has killed us time after time. For some reason, he just intimidates the CB’s trying to defend him and to tell you the truth I miss having Aqib Talib on the team to stand up to him with a little punkery of his own. Our Dunkaneers need to show up big (no pun intended) and match the production of # 89. Schtick # 4 “Kill the Pooch”: I suspected that Koenen was being directed to punt high and short instead of just blasting the ball as far as he could. But that strategy has backfired when the opponent basically gets 10 to 15 yards of field position by just catching the ball. Can we stop doing that? Schtick # 5 “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”: Finally our favorite team is back at Ray Jay. As is the norm, there will be a multitude of fans cheering “Let’s Go Ravens”. Baltimore is the city who lost their team and stole another. Wonder how many cheer for the transplanted Colts. We need to start fast, get a nice lead and keep those purple clad Floridians quiet. Schtick # 6 “No More Hankie Pankie”: Fifteen accepted penalties last week was ridiculously disproportionate when the Saints had only six. The officials seem all too eager to throw a flag so the players need to avoid the silly infractions that just killed our upset effort. No cursing, no somersault into the endzone, no lining up wrong, no offsides, no illegal motions, no blocks in the back and above all no hands to the face. Want to improve the game day experience? Win!

    It’s simply about our DEFENSE. Are we physical enough and can we stop them on 3rd down, if we do, we win. Go Bucs!

    Tampa paper states the Bucs’ defense still trying to learn Lovie’s version of the Tampa 2, & that it generally takes 2 years. Maybe that’s just an excuse for ranking near the bottom of the league, but apparently it took 2 years for Brooks, Sapp & Lynch. I do think they will continue to improve, but Steve Smith seems to have his way with us. Still no running game for the Bucs in the near future. Can Glennon get it done without one?

    Yeah if it was the loss to Carolina Simms ruptured his spleen in then it was Baltimore that had made comments after that that Simms whimpered every time they hit him when we played them that season… The Ravens have always been a bunch of murdering cocky pieces of S**t… I wish to God that even though they are murdering US right now that We will somehow find a way to stop the insanity and come back to destroy these idiots…

    Only thing this team is destroying is any chance of all the games not being blacked out next year….
