In Topic: Our win against the Bucs is looking less impressive - ATL/TB watch thread

20 September 2014 - 09:32 PM

What's going on guys? Ever heard the slogan?, "It's a Bucs life!". I feel bad that there wont be interesting Panthers-Buccaneers rivalry this year as well, while the Falcunts and Saints got to enjoy one close game and possibly another one.

 

I want to talk smack, I want to go to other team boards and say "we're gonna beat you" with some level of confidence. But right now the only confidence most of us Bucs fans seem to have is in getting the #1 overall pick. Too bad Winston had to be such a dumbass.


In Topic: The cherry on top: Bucs lose to QB-less Rams

When Lovie was hired there was a sense of relief for us Bucs fans that the guy leading the team has seen success in the league before and knows what it takes to win. Now that Lovie has been outcoached in back to back games, most of us Bucs fans are frustrated, but also confused as Lovie has always been a highly respected personality in Tampa.

 

This game against Rams could have easily been won despite our defense making their 3rd stringer look like a probowler. Lovie's ultra-conservative ways just killed any chance our team had. If it was Sean Payton, Chip Kelly or even a defensive minded Riverboat Ron, Bucs could have had 11 more points on the board. A run play on 3rd and 7 in 4th qtr when McCown at that point had only 3 incompletions /facepalm. We cannot stop anyone on defense and yet Lovie chooses to play conservative offense as if we have the dominant 90s defense. Right now we are a pathetic team. As usual, somewhat talented on paper, underachieving in reality.

I predicted that Bucs win if DA starts and Panthers win if Newton starts. So I guess I require a serving. Serve it.

What can I say. I thought it was a definite win with Anderson starting for you guys. Our defense outside of McCoy and David is still shitty. Our offense is a mess. McCown tried to play hero ball as if he was a franchise QB with no leash on him. Overall as a Bucs fan it felt pathetic.


In Topic: 2014 Game by Game Analysis - Part 1

Bucs fan here. That is a good preview.

 

Bucs O-line has issues no doubt, but you left a very important matchup that works in Bucs favor which is Bucs receivers vs Panthers' secondary. I know the game starts in the trenches and the WR advantage we have may not matter much if the O-line cannot block the whole game. But even with Glennon behind a horrible O-line last year we moved the ball well and just could not finish the deal (That embarrassing fumble Glennon had in the redzone /facepalm).

 

It was preseason yes, but after horrific starts against talented D-lines like that of Bills and Dolphins, the O-line bought enough time as the game went on and McCown settled in and delivered some TD scoring drives. Since then we have only upgraded by adding Mankins and a Chiefs backup G in Rishaw Johnson in favor of the two scrubs that were starting in those games. McCown is a game manager, but an elusive QB himself. I expect him to play like Jeff Garcia did for us in 07-08 not turn the ball over. I also expect our defense to be a well rounded group and finish in top 10. I predict this game to be a defensive battle with final scores like 13-10 favoring Panthers if Newton plays.
