Bucs Stats as offered by Greg Auman/TBT. Just to give you an order of magnitude, note the miles apart difference between the Offense and the Defense.
Bucs defense now 29th in scoring defense, 30th in total defense, 30th in pass defense, 31st in third-down conversion %, 32nd in sack %.
On offense, Bucs now have NFL’s No. 1 pass offense (312…[Read more]

I remember when Scott Reynolds penned the Lovie Smith monologues. When Scott starts speaking of such things Old Charon warms up the ferry ride across the River Styx for which there is no return. Next time you see Dirk Koetter check to see if he has a coin in his mouth to pay for the passage. lol. (Obviously just kidding, but there’s always some…[Read more]

I like this Sikkema kid, got a pair big as Mark Cook’s head. lol. Kudos for calling out Koetter and Smith for this first half abomination. Somebody has to be held accountable for what we just saw. It’s not easy to be a member of the media and speak truth to power – but this time it’s warrantied. This is no bad day – the previously unbeaten…[Read more]

No harm Horse, just a devoted Buc fan that wants to win. I get it! Re LBs Alexander and David are back at practice although limited. I think David plays, Kwon a game time decision because of the excellent play of stand-in MLB Kendell Beckwith. LB Adarius Glanton is also playing at a high level. I’m not too worried about LBs our deepest position.…[Read more]

Looks like the Bucs passed on Houston as he left without a contract. Reported by Ian Rapoport.

The #Texans are flying former #Bears pass-rusher Lamarr Houston in for a visit tomorrow, source said. He could fill Whitney Mercilus’ role.

Some of you are suggesting that K Pat Murray is a temporary fix. Roy Cummings/FloridaFootballInsiders believes the same. Roy said “The Bucs were also believed to be looking on Monday at former Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos and according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he was their top choice for the job.
I’ve not heard anything from the Bucs…[Read more]
Houston would be a quality addition for the Bucs if he is healthy. The iterative words are “if he is healthy” and can he stay healthy. He has had two torn ACLs. John Fox, Bears HC, knows pass rushers. They chose to release him with an injury settlement. To be fair, some of that was Houston was owed a 5.4mil salary.
That’s what workouts are for…[Read more]

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bucs are bringing in former Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos for a physical to see where he is with his adductor sprain. The source said he is about two weeks away.
Per ESPN’s Jenna Laine, in four seasons, Cairo Santos has made 89 of 105 field goals (84.8). He also hasn’t missed an extra point since 2015. The Bucs are b…[Read more]

Those grades sound about right to me. No grade for Kicker? Understandable! lol. Re Kickers per Greg Auman/TBT, the Bucs are bringing in six kickers Nugent, Franks, Lambo, Pat Murray & Marshall Koehn Monday, plus Cairo Santos for physical.
Two Bass fishermen from Ohio may be invited also. (a lil Sunday afternoon sip of Jack Daniels made me tell…[Read more]

You may be on to something. Did anybody see how lathered up Winston was when he was greeting players as they left the locker room? One of the announcers noted how worked up he was. I love the passion, but if/when it borders on frenzy, it’s probably not a good thing. Perhaps it helps him get pumped to perform and motivates his teammates, so…[Read more]

macabee commented on the post, Kicked In The Gut: Bucs Fall To Pats 19-14 2 weeks, 3 days ago
I re-watched the game last night and the pass rush did improve. Defense in general still needs improvement, but to be fair, the offense had opportunities to win this game even if Folk missed every kick. We will get better, we have to get better on both sides of the ball if we want to see Buc football in January. Go Bucs!
Ok, I get missing the 56 yarder, But the other two missed field goal attempts would have won this game. Somebody needs to explain why after the first touchdown we stopped running the ball. Given all the injuries I’m looking for a way to be forgiving, but we’re not going to win many games if we can’t get a more effective pass rush and the secondary…[Read more]
macabee commented on the post, Bucs Waive DE Smith 2 weeks, 4 days ago
You were right scub, they brought up S Isaiah Johnson from the practice squad.
Only one safety on the PS -39 Johnson, Isaiah S 6-0 209 24 R South Carolina. Why not announce this when the cut was made? Puzzling! Anyway chance to say Good Morning, scubog. lol.
This one’s got me scratching my head too! This is not the usual MO. If a significant move is planned that is announced first followed by the corresponding cut. And how could any addition help 12 hours before a game. What’s obvious is they’re done with Jaq Smith.
Their immediate needs now are Safety (due to injury) and DE (due to Smith’s release…[Read more]

macabee commented on the post, Bucs vs. Giants: Most Disappointing 3 weeks ago
Just an observation here fellas, not a complaint. I like DE/OLB Noah Spence and his passion to rush the passer, but it appears that he is depending on his speed to get to the QB – running around his blocker and coming in the backdoor. It also appears that opposing OCs are aware of this and just pushing him past the QB. When he makes his turn to…[Read more]
macabee commented on the post, Bucs Pewter Nation Podcast Episode 33: Folk Hero 3 weeks ago
The things you learn when you listen to these podcast of which I thoroughly enjoy. At minute 4:45 of the podcast, Mark Cook confesses that he has a set – not a pair. To have a set, that means they’re identical. To know they’re identical means you had to have measured them. I could go on, but sometimes you should just say nothing! lol.
