    That moron really believes it was only two plays that he sucked?

    McCown is the Buc I want to see play well Sunday more than anyone else. We need him, there is no other viable option on the team. News Flash: Bucs sign Tim Tebow! (as team chaplain).

    Tebow would play better. Mccown shouldn’t be in the league.

    With that moron running the offense- we have no hope of winning game(s).

    If the defense doesn’t do it’s job, we will lose this next game too. Even if they do, probably will lose anyway. As long as mcclown is starting, we’ll have a laughingstock offense.

    I see McCown for what he is – a game manager…he’s not a 13Td to 1 INT guy (that was a fluke) – but we can win games with him if he cuts down the turnovers…it won’t be pretty, we won’t be scoring 35 per game, but we can be the late 90’s Bucs this year…I still much prefer the game manager over last year’s debacle…but I admit the game manager is not exactly a long-term solution…we need to draft a QB next year…big time!

      Just to reiterate how we can win with McCown: in 1998 we averaged less than 20 ppg and won 8 games; in 1999 we averaged less than 17 ppg (including winning one 6-3) and won 11 games….we need to win with our defense, which may not quite be at the late 90’s level, but isn’t that far away talent-wise.

        and for those two years I’d love to hear the ppg after taking out defensive scores. HAHA, it’s probably MUCH lower.

    Don’t bring your Red Board nastiness out here into the articles. Yeah McCown underwhelmed, yeah he NEEDS to play better this game; but you could stop being the queen of embellishment and just say what you think needs to happen.

    How about you thrown the ball on time? Then you won’t need to take needless sacks or throw ridiculous looking INTs from the grasp.

    Yes McCown has to play much better. Saying it and doing it consistently is another thing. He needs to have a good game because it just gets tougher the following week. I hope he shows the Rams that he has a deep ball and isn’t concerned about showing them every now and then to keep them honest. Go Bucs!

    This is a winnable game for the kind of expectations we had this year (8-8). This is a must win game for the players, coaching staff and the owner and failure to do so may lead to second guessing of our philosophies and loss of confidence in key players and system.

    From a fan’s perspective however, I hope that not only we win, but McCown looks good doing it. If he has a highly efficient game against a good defense, the spirits of the whole offense will be lifted and should a shootout ensue against the Falcons on Thursday Night, Bucs offense will be somewhat ready.
