Buc stops here

News keeps coming… this team is the walking wounded already only four weeks into the season. Fortunately Carmen Brate is one person they don’t have to worry about backing him up. He has been a very capable TE every season in Tampa so far. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Probably hurt himself on that high throw from fitz. Gees the hits just keep coming. Hoping news of mike Smith’s demise comes soon, but I won’t hold my breath. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

He didn’t play after that. Great attempt to catch it 4 feet over his head though. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Mike Smith is everywhere! He’s probably tapping your phone too. 🙂 Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

I won’t be happy with what we do until he is fired, but what’s probably going to happen is that the next game or 2 our defense will play better and it will just keep extending mike smiths stay which is pathetic. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

It could be worse. At least we still have Howard. Gruden would have traded him to Chicago. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Of course he got injured….he is a Buccaneer isn’t he. They all get injured. It is part of the pact we made with the devil to get our superbowl. We are going to be decimated by injuries for the next 100 years! Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

I always wonder why we have so many injuries each year, is it the heat? Is it our strength and conditioning coaches not doing a great job keeping these guys at full strength? Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Suffering is part of being a Buc fan, especially a longtime fan. I suffered through 0-26. I carry my ticket stub from game #27 in my wallet as a badge of honor. Believe me when I say things could be much, much worse than they are right now. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Ahhh man I’m only 31 so I never had to endure that part, I was lucky to start watching the bucs early 90s, we sucked still but eventually drafted sapp and brooks. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Game # 27 was the victory against the Saints. Props to you for being there. I have the commemorative poster from the first home win (game #28) against the St. Louis Cardinals hanging on my Bucs Room wall. Not sure what happened to my tickets.
