    I was with you on everything SR until the last sentence. Turnovers are great and necessary in this defense, but giving up 13 points in regulation as opposed 48 and 37 the week before is considered “getting better”. Even without turnovers, our offense has to be able to score more than 13 points, even against good defenses. I would like to see the defense hold the opponent to 13 or less three weeks in a row before I defend them too much.

    I see more positives and a team that is in transition; which will require patience. In the past we have given coaches chances. Way to early for this demeanor. I understand the Press has a tough time with Coach Smith, but he gives out a lot more information than Schiano ever did. Forget his personalty and listen to what he is saying; also the players as they sure seem to me to be more comfortable with this Coach. Go Bucs!

    Scott, I really don’t know what team your watching. You mention Evans as a positive, I don’t disagree there however, you address his 40 yard catch Sunday, that play was ALL Glennon. Evans was so covered on the play you couldn’t even see him. Glennon dropped a beautiful pass on a dime to him. Secondly, you mention Glennon as a negative. He’s the only thing this offense has going for it. Do you honestly realize how putrid the O-Line is? The pass rush is almost getting to Glennon before the shotgun snap. Glennon also threw a Rembrandt to Jenkins for the go ahead touchdown. The bottom line is that this team only has three things going for it McCoy, David and Glennon. And as far as “what’s wrong with the Buccaneers” for you not to mention one of the worst coaching staffs in franchise history, and boy that’s saying something, is nothing short of shotty reporting.

    I would like more passion from Glennon as well but a top of the list disappointment? Surprised you have him ahead of many others, even if they are repeatable each week. I guess this GM and coach who has our team AT BEST competitive and basically dead last in all categories on offense and defense is not on them. We know HORSE is wearing rose color glasses and preaching patience but they always seem more than eager to mail my bill for season tickets earlier every year!WE just plain stink and are a horrible football team. In all honestly and without being overly emotional, I believe we are the worst team in the NFL. Our record and the stats show this. I’m a realist not a situational optimist like horse. WE have 2 good players and a few potentials. No more FA just draft picks and coach them up, oh wait, we suck at that also. How about some passion from our coach!

      You got passion from Schiano 63. Also, Horse is usually right.

    Warhop should be fired now. Why wait? The OL could not possibly be any worse. Lovie made some poor choices in his staff. Schiano sucked, but he at least managed to win 4 of his last 8. Lovie will be lucky to finish 4-12.
