Buc stops here

The only thing that makes the decision is the coach, and Tony Dungy commented this morning and made the most sense than anyone on ESPN in regards to Fitzpatrick and Dungy. You don’t have to like it, but it does make a lot of sense. He said that any coach he knows goes with the hot hand. Fitzpatrick is the first NFL QB to throw for more than 400 yards in three straight games, and he made two bad calls against Pittsburgh. On top of that, the team fought in the second half and came almost all the way back… Read more »

Dungy is entitled to his opinion. Dungy may also think Super Bowl MVP journeyman Nick Foles should be starting over Wentz in Philly. Maybe that’s different since Wentz was hurt and not suspended. Maybe he’s thinking about the character of Winston and that’s what matters most. Either way, if Koetter plays Fitz and the lowly Bears beat the Bucs, then there’s a bye week and season of QB controversy (that he could have put to rest by starting the franchise player), then he can talk about games on NBC with Dungy next year since he will be fired. Rate this… Read more »

Does Fitz have the hot hand though? Game 1 and 2? Sure. Game 3? He put the Bucs in a 30-10 hole. The defense pitched a second half shutout, got the ball to the offense with 3 minutes to go, down by 3, at home with an all star cast at WR with the number #1 offense in the NFL against a bottom 5 defense vs the pass. What happened? 3 and out. Fitz’s passes were bad. Off target to double covered players. One should have been intercepted and the other two were just plain awful. As far as Winston… Read more »

This was one of those podcasts where I wished I could jump into the argument. Let me preface this by saying I am a huge Jameis supporter. I threatened my ticket rep with cancelling my tickets if we didn’t draft him. I’ve defended him and supported him at every turn…and I still believe in him. But how is he “the best quarterback on this team right now”? Based on what? What he did in college? How far he throws the football? The last time Jameis led this team to consecutive wins was the 5-game defense fueled win streak of 2016.… Read more »

The most talented team doesn’t always win the SuperBowl…That 20pt hole wasn’t all on Fitz- drops, fumbles, poor tackling helped- and it was a good team effort to make the comeback in the 2nd Half. That showed good chemistry and effort…

Hey Trevor, if you’re looking for something to do on Sat. here in Chicago, Revolution Brewing Oktoberfest street fest all day.
…and yes, just ask for Wil, the Brewer& we’ll show ya a good time!!

Great podcast you guys!

According to Scott Reynold’s logic, he’s only the boss of you guys on a week by week basis. Next week, if something happens this Sunday to prove Trevor or Mark’s collective logic superior to Scott, then I think think one of them needs to be above Scott as bosses and Scott is not allowed to become boss again till you guys’s hot hands get cold 😉 lol
