Classic trap game

218 posts in this topic

Last year Bucs beat Falcons and Saints****** early on, but they had all but given up and had one foot out the door when they laid down for the Panther victories. Coach Schiano made examples early in camp with key releases to show he wouldn't allow the team to ever lay down like ra ra Morris did.

You played 2 dome teams early in Tampa....and won.

Teams don't quit after week 6 with a 4-2 record. Tampa just got punched in the mouth..... They may have quit very late in the year but they were just whipped the old fashion way much of last year.

The ONLY trap here is between the Bucs' fans ( the very few they have) noses and chins. Too bad nothing resembling sense comes out of them.

This is a trap game.

I'm surprised at the extreme level of confidence by the board TBH.

Our Defense is a sieve.

Teams don't quit? Looks like the sports writers disagree as of the lack of effort wasn't so obvious anyway!

The Buccaneers did quit. It likely will cost coach Raheem Morris his job. If the players really liked playing for the 35-year-old Morris, they would not have laid down the way they did against Carolina. They allowed the Panthers to drive down the field on their opening possession, and it just got worse from there.

The Bucs trailed 20-10 at halftime but allowed Carolina to score 28 unanswered points out of the break. They allowed the Panthers to score on fourth-and-1 from the 11-yard line, gave up a 41-yard touchdown run to quarterback Cam Newton, lost a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and gave up another touchdown two plays later.

A team that wants its coach to retain his job doesn't lose a division game 48-16.

You know that's not what I am saying.

I am enjoying everyone being all riled up honestly.

But the Buc's should be better than last year.

I don't necessarily think we will lose, but i can see it happening.

As I said, teams don't quit at 4-2.....

They may have quit late in that season....but that was after they started getting their teeth kicked in fairly often. You can caulk a game or so up to quitting.....but they just got flat out beat for most of it.

Carolina became an offensive machine last year....them getting rolled on wasn't them just quitting. they simply didn't have the means to stop them. They realized that in the first matchup. Newton had arguably the greatest rookie season in NFL history...it wasn't that they just quit and allowed it. Only person that stopped Cam last year was named Cam Newton.

Our Defense WAS a sieve without Edwards, Edwards, Beason, Davis, Kuechly, Norman and Nakamura and a different starting line up every week.

Fixed for accuracy.

most people see the bus as having improved, but the spread in talent and ability and coaching is still the same (well, they may have caught up a little in the coaching dept., but the bar was set at zero so....).

the bucs got better, but so did we. did we improve as much as the bucs? probably not...but we didn't need to. we're still a team that should be dominating them. there's a lot of teams on the schedule i respect. the bucs ain't one of them...esp. this early in their new era.

I know it was pre-season.

But did you guys see the Jet's moving the ball on that first team D ?

I just don't have the unending confidence just yet.

Oddly, however, I will be shocked if we don't beat the Saints*.

My head hurts...

like you said, the bucs should be better.

you need to be acknowledging that the panthers D should be better...regardless of how it looked like the jets were moving at will on the panthers D. that just wasn't the case. you look at the stats and they just weren't that successful. 4.4 yards per play on rushing and passing isn't that great, is it? 32 passing attempts but only 15 completions and 2 INTS? not too shabby. held to FGs? c'mon.

seems that people are more confident in the bucs improvements than the panthers.
