    This list is perfect. I’m Glad the whole O-line was on there. Dotson is just as bad as the rest of them. He had a penalty today and continued to display his poor run blocking since his legs are too thin. Get rid of all five O-linemen!

  2. 2


    McCown was destroyed because we had no offensive linemen today. Get someone else to play on the offensive line because that’s what they were today; offensive. Our punter needs to be replaced while you’re at it. There’s much work to do Coach and GM.

  3. 3


    McCoy has a kneecap injury, Lavonte David had a concussion. I would put those players on IR now and get them healthy for next year.

    I would bring up players from the PS and anybody on the bubble and let them play for contracts next year. Time to find out what we got because we need to go DEFCON1 next year and nuke this thing.

    You would have to pull a gun on me to get that #1 pick from me! Just my opinion!

    macabee..Like your post about needing a gun to trade our 1st round pick. L&L need to make the right pick, the DOCK or the NOLE.

    Lovie continues to embarrass himself by starting McCown. PR still hasn’t done a mea culpa for their support of him, and Freeman. So far our draft yielded one productive player in Evans. The rest (eg ASJ) remain “potential” players at best. Were I the Glazers I would Fire L&L no questions asked, but they’re clueless and it would make recruiting difficult next yr. If Lovie doesn’t bench McCown at this point I’m done until he is fired. Worthless waste of all of our time.

    I’m not ready to fire Lovie Smith just yet. The man does have a good track record in the league and I’m at least willing to give him another season. Jason Licht on the other hand, has to start receiving some of our wrath for bringing in the worst high priced free-agents I have ever witnessed. The man would win every Ugly Girl Contest.

      You forget that just about every commentator and analyst were raving about the Bucs Free Agent additions, when they happened. Most of them were ranked as the top players available. So, what happened? You can’t put square pegs in a round hole. These players brought in may have had potential (killer term right) or were great in LIMITED action, but just couldn’t adapt to fulltime work, in a different system.

    To say that I’m disappointed in McCown or the offensive line would mean that I expected something else to happen. Nobody should at this point, 13 games in and they have all looked awful in their own special ways this season so no disappointment here. They did exactly what I expected, the defense let me down with the missed tackles but thats about it. Keep being awful at least help is on the way next year with a real QB!

    How are the Rams doing with Barron?

  10. 10


    I point my finger at two things:
    1. coaching – on obvious pass plays (third and double digits), we had an empty backfield and no one to block for McCown. With such a bad oline, not having an RB in to block is inexcusable.
    2. Oline is the cause of 99% of the problems, including leaving the defense on the field all day so they were gassed by the end.

    Lovie should be on this list too. Same old crap every week. Horrible O line play easily the worst in the league. McCown just not very good, can’t run the ball, etc. same old same old. Don’t see any improvement. Hope next draft focuses on building the O line if nothing else. I for one am ready to give up on smith. I’m pretty sure the GM didn’t draft Simms in third round instead of getting an O lineman. Also pretty sure was Lovies call on getting rid of most our old O line and bringing in bunch of free agents that for the most part have been a bust.

    The OC is way over his head. The Bucs have the worst center in the league, worst OL in the league, and likely the worst QB in the league. Right now, the team IS the worst in the league and would have the 1st draft pick if the season ended today. The Bucs are simply unwatchable! Of course, I’m not saying anything all of you don’t already know. I hated Greg Schiano’s coaching. Bet he’s laughing his butt off right now.

    Didn’t I write this article before the game? Seriously, my players, the rationale, even the stats (well okay I said 1TD and 4 INTs and McCown got 2 TDs, 2 INTs and fumble – pretty close), I was bang-on with the sacks and holding penalties….that is just sad that a guy can write the most disappointing article before the game and be nearly 100% accurate…..shouldn’t somebody get fired at 1 Buc over that….
