    I don’t understand why Lovie gives opponents the ball first. Doesn’t he know he’s coaching the worst defense in the league. He should check the stats,the Bucs have lost all 15 games that their opponent has scored first!! Yet Lovie always wants to put his crap Tampa2 out on the field first, amazing.

      Surferdudes our defense does suck, but I’m a firm believer in deferring and getting the ball first in the 2nd half. At that point you’ve had an entire half to dissect what the other team is doing so you know exactly how to attack them. Barring a fumble, any team should be able to move the ball down the field and get at least a field goal in the 1st possession after halftime. With that you can either gain the momentum or maintain it. Especially when we play at home, the crowd noise should help prevent the opposing team from getting into a rhythm on offensive in their opening drive.

    Pink, the facts don’t lie, we’ve lost all 15 games when we’re scored on first. You’re right our D does suck, more reason to keep them on the bench to start the game. I doubt it would’ve made much of difference yesterday, but damn it’s 7-0 after just 2 minutes. I’d rather put my offense out their to start the game 0-0, then their first possession down 7-0.

    Coin tosses are not the cause of our losses. Defensive scheme is not the cause either. We don’t have the players to run any scheme well, and mid-season is not the time to overhaul an entire scheme. I’m seeing players getting beat one on one, whether playing zone or man schemes.
