#1894533 "There is always next week"

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 12:05 PM

Uh, no.

Remember week 17 last year? There wasn't a next week when there could have been.

That type of attitude won't get us post season play.

Someone saw the last worst topic nominee and thought hell, I can do worse than that!

#1894199 The Huddle Stages of Coping with a Loss...

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 09:55 AM

1. Retardation

"Fire Chud! Bench Cam! D-Will sucks! There goes the season!"

2. Rationalization

"We beat ourselves, they didn't win."

3. Acceptance

"Well, it was just one game. They play again next week."

4. Optimism

"We will destroy the Saints*!"

#1894007 Cheerleader of the game...

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 08:23 AM

Yes, we hate the Bucs and their fans. Yes, the game was an abomination that makes our stomach churn. But lets not take it out on the ladies.

Lovely ladies of any team affiliation are to be admired. That is my policy.

Here is the cheerleader of the game. She is not the Bucs' cheerleader of the game, they chose another. But obviously they haven't the eye for talent that I do.

Curly brown hair and blue eyes gets me every time.

As usual, any snide or disrespectful remarks about these lovely ladies will result in swift punishment up to and including account deletion.

Knee jerk doom and gloom reaction from the lesser experienced huddlers is a tradition here.

They had as many rushing yards as points.

10 rushing yards total, and that was by our QB and a WR.

It was fun being on the sidelines in Tampa despite the result. Got heckled quite a bit for my Panthers hat. Here are some of my favorite photos....

I know how you feel Charles Johnson, I know how you feel

D-Will ran for more lateral yards than vertical. Not good.

Posted Image
Despite what a few knuckleheads on this board are saying, Luke was a bright spot today. Good in coverage, Bucs just made the plays.

Even on his worst day, Cam gets over an 80 QB rating...

Tallest Captain has been in a while...

Sums up the day.

Not a flattering shot for the D. Notice who is still making the play.

A hold away from his first NFL sack.

#1893901 Cam's performance

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 06:37 AM

One of his worst games and he still managed an 82 QB rating.

Compare that to Delhomme and Jimmy's worst game ratings.

#1893898 Chud Has To Stop Ignoring The Runnning Game

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 06:32 AM

You would rather have 3 and outs all day long?

The run game was awful. Chud knew it, we knew it. Out only hope was throwing the ball.

#1893889 Game Grades - Panthers at Bucs

Posted by Zod on 10 September 2012 - 06:15 AM

The atmosphere at Raymond James Stadium was electric. The Bucs fans brought their enthusiasm and were recharged with tributes to Ronde Barber on the jumbo tron all game long. Video tributes by fan favorites like Derrick Brook, Mike Alstott, Tony Dungy. It was a celebration atmosphere and it helped keep the momentum for the Bucs.

Hopefully the Panthers will have reason to celebrate this Sunday. On with the grades...


No one notified me the Panthers would be showing their own tribute to 2010 by mimicking the anemic offense. Sloppy, undisciplined, and uninspired.

Two stats sum up the offensive, and by offensive I mean offensive, woes of the Panthers.

- 10 yards rushing total
- 2 for 10 on 3rd round conversions

Throw those two stats into any game this season, and it is a guaranteed Panthers loss.

Offensive Grade - F


While many fans are moaning about the defense, they did manage to hold a team in their own stadium on opening day to under 17 points. That should be good enough to win the game given an adequate offensive effort.

Jon Beason returned to form with 10 tackles, 9 of them solo. Much maligned Greg Hardy was second with 8 tackles, 6 of them solo. So there were some bright spots to talk about.

All in all, not a dominating performance, but they did manage to hold the Bucs to less than 17 points despite being on the field for nearly 40 minutes.

Defensive Grade: B-

Special Teams

Bobbled balls, blocked punt. On a day the Panthers needed perfect Special Teams play, they got below average instead. While they were adequate on containing the Bucs' returns, they were inept in other facets of the game.

Special Teams Grade: D


Ron Rivera, you were out coached by the finest college football mind New Jersey had to offer. That isn't a glowing testimonial. While it is difficult to game plan against an unknown, the Bucs did nothing spectacular in terms of game plan. In fact, they were quite vanilla.

Your team must be better prepared, mentally tougher, and execute better. This falls on you.

Coaching Grade - D-

#1893460 Do you guys not remember what all happened after the Titans game last year?

Posted by Zod on 09 September 2012 - 09:27 PM

It's hard to win on the road in a season opener.

Stop crying

#1892805 Out coached, Out played

Posted by Zod on 09 September 2012 - 07:11 PM

The Bucs do not have more talent than the Panthers. I still believe that.

They did have a better plan and played with heart. That's the summation of why the Panthers lost.

They came out with something to prove, and proved it.

The Panthers came out expecting to be handed a W. Good lesson for them.

The Panthers will win theIr home opener. Mark it down.

#1892432 Congrats Bucs and Bucs Fans

Posted by Zod on 09 September 2012 - 06:34 PM

Good home opener for them. Got the momentum early. They should be able to sell some tickets now.

Our home opener is this week. Good lord I hope Stewart can play.
