    Nah man. I like the aggressive shot to Evans. Evans has to make a better play on that ball. That’s why our running lanes were open early. They were concerned about being beat over-the-top. When Arians was asked about why the Bucs were going after Peterson, he said when you have a good young QB and a good young receiver, you go after anyone no matter what. I agree with that statement. If Mike/Jameis wanna be great, go beat someone.

      I agree. Had Evans made a better play on that ball, that whole game might have been different. The only thing Peterson did on that play was out run Evans, and the ball fell in his hands. Evans slowed down for whatever reason, I think he might have lost it in the lights or something. Had he kept running at full speed, Peterson wouldn’t of had that kind of play on the ball.

      Agreed. On to LA. go Bucs!

    I do kinda agree with Warren on the deep pass, but well said on everything else. Pretty sure Koetter is using some of the same thoughts in his address to the team this week.

    nice article, I do like the shots taken down field shows aggressiveness, However coach K needs to emphasize patience and like you said chemistry with VJax and CO. JW was off throwing high balls and not very accurate. Get those screens going and a good time to see what Rogers can do.

    Go Bucs!!

    Sounds about right. Love Jameis but the slow starts getting old. The play calling and Koetter should take most of the blame. He knows he starts slow yet not enough easy high completage stuff early. We need to move those chains! Taking shots is fine but it just wasn’t good play calling Sunday. The throw to Evans with Peterson on him like glue? No, didn’t like it so early. Get Jameis and this offense going then when he gets loose throw the deep stuff. He just can’t seem to keep his emotions in check early and the result is balls sail. That throw wasn’t terrible but Peterson was all over it and Evans didn’t really try to fight for it. Oh well hopefully it’s a wake up call and we beat the Rams down. Also hope Ayers and Martin aren’t serious. Those are two this team really can’t do much without unfortunately. Just no depth at all in some areas.

    It’s on to the Rams. At home. We need to brush off the dust and nurse the sores and get back and get ready to kick some butts. We are at home. We need to show this was just a little blip on the screen. We are going to win some football now. Go Bucs.

    Maybe I’m in the minority but I think its absolute crap that even a first year head coach allowed a team that hasnt won a playoff game since our Super Bowl win in 2002 to lose focus after 1 win. I get keeping the energy positive but the reality is beating the Falcons is what this team SHOULD have done and until they stop being giddy about things we are expected to do then we wont achieve anything. Defense is allowing 64% percent completions, 321 yards and 2.5 TD’s a game. So much for all the progress we heard about over the summer. The pass rush was reportedly much better with more depth yet it continues to look like Gerald McCoy or bust. The secondary looks a little better but 64% completions and zero turnovers surely dont reflect much improvement. I’m sure they wont call Hardy but they sure need to consider it. McCoy is in his prime and it would be a shame to waste his prime years while he hope and pray one of these DEs pan out. If people can overlook Big Ben and his many rape cases then Hardy can also live down his past if he keeps quiet and produces. With no pass rush this season is lost anyway so Im not sure what it is we have to lose by taking a chance on the guy.

    1. 10.1


      The problem with Hardy is not that he can’t play, but it’s the fact that he is a cancer in the locker room. All it takes is one cancerous player to turn the whole thing inside out. Not worth it in my opinion. Besides, he did nothing for Dallas last year except cause trouble in the locker room, and argue with coaches on sidelines during games.

    If we can’t get any heat on the QB, the Bucs are going to make the QB look like the same All Pro he looked like last year and it’s as simple as that.
    You can’t give any NFL QB 4 or 5 seconds to sit back and scan the field or he will shred you apart like Checker’s lettuce. That goes for practice squad QB’s, too.
