    C+ is very generous. In the coming days i think we will learn that JW did not get the correct protection calls made and that much of the pressure was due to his lack of making the right calls. I think most rookies struggle in this area, you can’t claim to be a genius and then miss this stuff

      Hey Guys, I watched the game again to get and need to say that I was totally wrong about J. I reacted emotionally and was WAY too harsh on Jamies. My bad, sorry for polluting the site. Thanks everyone for calling me out.

      You’re kidding right? You been saving this rant up for about 4 weeks now? How do you know it was bad calls at the line? Were you in the huddle? All I saw was guys getting blown by every play. A blown call is when a guy comes free so you must’ve been watching a different game than me.
      But please stop with the trolling it’s boring at this point. I guess as bucs fans we’ll have to deal with people like you every week he has an off game.

      I was not a fan of the Winston selection at the beginning of the year but the kid has impressed me this year. He is on pace to have one of the best rookie years by a QB. How can you even blame this game on him? Poor play calling, penalties, and dropped passes is to blame (not to mention the refs). How do you have a RB that rushes for 90 yds the first half and only give him 2 carries the 2nd half. Gotta run the ball to keep the defense off balance and give your QB some time to throw.

    he’s playing well to be a rookie and has his team which was 2-14 last year in the playoff race… give it a break with the hate…

    Winston wasn’t the problem today. I think towards the end of the game most of us knew he was going to throw an interception because he wanted to win and he’s wasn’t concerned about his stats; he’s a winner in my book. There’s no quit in him. Go Bucs!

    our OC had a bad day… would’ve liked to have seen more screen passes to negate the Colt’s pass rush better

    Evans dropped a huge ball on the sidleine which would have set up a possible TD, line olayed like shit all around, Winston wasn’t the problem but he did miss on some throws I think a C+ is accurate. I have zero faith in our defense they can’t make a stop when you need one.

    Our team wasn’t good enough to overcome mistakes/refs today. I hate blaming a game on the refs, and won’t do so today, but I did feel like our fairly mediocre defense did force 2 turnovers on that last colts scoring drive, 1 was taken away by a bad call, and 1 was not called a fumble. Great teams overcome these things, and we are not great. But would have like to see Jameis with a chance to tie.

    Ups and downs… Keep the focus on Winston. I thought he was okay. But, every game and every snap he can get is just going to make him that much better next year. The O-line disappeared this game. I’m still excited to see him exceed expectations at this point.

    LOL@ BucNutta and and 76Buccaroo…..They have been MIA for awhile waiting for a bad game so they could post something. The O-line played bad. The defense, did not seem to adjust in the 2nd half to the Colts going to the quick dink and dunk style offense to get the ball out faster. Lovie needed to blitz more to add pressure, as well as have the corners up in press defense to disrupt the short routes. As for Winston, I think he played well with the amount of pressure they put on him. Evans missing key catches, puts the offense in a bad position, which makes they play calling more difficult than it needs to be.
    I do not know if anyone noticed Kwon trying to fire up the defense in the 2nd half trying to get a stop, but that kid has that same fire as Winston. He was out there balling. This team is growing, so I expect some ups and downs. By next year, with a good draft. They should be real contenders.

    This defensive scheme is crap. Receivers run wide open constantly. No bump or reroute at the line. Were 10 yards off the receiver. No pass rush unless we blitz which we don’t do enough. Winston is OK. Hard to pass when you are laying on the ground or have the other team in your face all day!!

      @jme0151 – I had the same thought about how awful it is to watch us just let teams play pitch and catch over the middle…but I thought back to our glory days and recall much of the same…the “bend but don’t break” defense that gives up FGs not TDs. Our defense yesterday did this for most of the game – special teams gave the Colts the ball on the 50 for their first TD (the second TD was the “breaking” of our D). Our offense should be good enough to score more than 20 points if our defense can keep teams under 20 and our special teams just plays fine (not even spectacular)….I too found it hard to watch so many easy completions against us, but I think this loss is all on the Offense IMO…

    Winston was not the problem yesterday. The offence drove the ball every time they had it for the first half. From there, they just didn’t get the opportunities, as the def couldn’t get off the field. The first two drives of Q3 were ruined by a phantom penalty and an unavoidable sack. Can’t fault Winston for these. He is the reasons why this team has a chance of winning every week. He doesn’t play, act or sound like a rookie, so I am over the moon with the progress he has made in his rookie season. He can’t do it on his own though.

    eastend….you have a valid point. Only problem is this defense is not close that defense. Better talent then.
