    What makes you think the Saints are that much interested in winning? I don’t think they care at this point one way or the other. Payton is going to take a hard look of any rookies who might help them next year. I think they try some plays they haven’t used that much to see if they want them even in their play charts. Bucs win, 31 to 20.

    Brees is going to get his 5000, Ingram is going to get his 1000 and we can’t stop any TE. Bucs lose 31-17 and take home the first pick and start the New Year off on the right foot.

    WHY ,would anyone want the bucs to win this game??? The bucs have a chance to pick 1st in each round or trade pics which is more important that a win that means nothing.Yes, I am a season tkt holder

      Sunshineben- Could not agree with you more, this game has no upside if we win, if we lose get the best pick to have in the draft instead of #5, Go Saints

    If we win this game I will be a very pissed off buc fan.

    JonnyG: It’s my understanding that we still own the 2nd pick with a win. Going to the game Sunshineben? I’m not sure I can sit there, as I have for 38 seasons, and cheer against our team. No, I won’t be disappointed if we lose knowing the reward is that we’ll be “on the clock.” But it’s no sure thing. Bet in 2007 Oakland wishes they didn’t have that first pick when they,like everyone else would have, drafted JaMarcus Russel. Oh, that second player…….Calvin Johnson. Then in 2010 the Rams took QB Sam Bradford. Next up a boy named Suh. Of course I want that first pick to give us control in every round. But I’m most concerned that we get the right player. Goodness knows we’ve got a long history of misfires. If I don’t cheer on the mighty Bucs to victory (hasn’t worked yet this year) I don’t have to cheer for the Saints do I?

      Scu- Your understanding would be incorrect by the time you read this you will see I was right and thats if the Bucs lose they have the #1 pick in draft and btw Bradford or Russel weren’t as good in college as Mariota who won all the awards a qb can win unlike your examples

    Score doesn’t matter, just get this scourge of a season over with!!!

  7. 7


    Bucs offense generated 3 points last week at home against very average Packer defense. Don’t think anyone has to worry we squeak one out today. Bucs Offense is horrendous and been going backwards. So I would guess since Saints D sucks maybe 31-13 Saints? Like others said though who cares about score just get this piece of garbage season over without any key injuries to a player that will be here next year.

    Scubog, I am right with you. All my previous predictions the Bucs will win is an automatic loss for us in the past, especially when I say these last words:. Go Bucs! Get this win!

    1. 8.1


      Horse – Thats great you think Bucs will win I hope its just you being optimistic that they can win instead of ignorance. After the FSU Game you will be on board with Mariota

      1. 8.1.1


        We lost!!! Bring on Mariota!!!



          Buclover1988= I’m with you and I’m glad you have the Football iq to know that Mariota is the superior qb in this draft

  11. 9


    With 17 point lead at halftime I wasn’t too concerned about bucs blowing first pick. I knew this dreadful offense would find a way to squander the lead and lose and I wasn’t wrong. We are in the drivers seat now let’s hope the draft and free agency are kind to us. Seems like we are due for a good draft and qb after so many misses.

  12. 10


    JonnyG: I didn’t mention any player the Bucs should draft and have only kept repeating that we get it right. You think it’s Mariota. I’ve said repeatedly that I haven’t seen him yet and my concern that the highlights keep showing his running prowess. So for the last time JonnyG. I don’t care if the Bucs take Mariota or some relative unknown from North Dakota State as long as the guy is the best player.
