Even though we can hold on here and win....

We're never going to have a real Offensive Coordinator, are we?

Edit: Ugh, way to be, defense. 60 yards in what, 40 seconds?

Its hilarious to me that no matter who comes in here, we are the same old Bucs in every aspect.

Once again at the last possession when one more stop wins the game the defense fails to show up.
Once again we manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Is there a more frustrating team to root for than these guys?

With the Rays and Bucs unlikely to get to the post season, and no NHL, now until April will seem like an eternity. Wish I was a Bear and just hibernate for 6 months.

Rays officially eliminated from the playoffs with the Athletics win tonight.

No one in the AL strikes my fancy, so... Go Reds!

Talib suspended four games by the NFL for prohibited substance violation.

Raise your hand if you're surprised, given his history of issues.

They should just cut him. We're going nowhere this year, he's likely gone at the end of the season anyway. If his play was worth the trouble then maybe keep him but it's not. Cutting him now will atleast continue the theme with Tanard and Winslow of getting the thugs out.

So can we get the replacement refs back? Bucs just got totally screwed on that garbage illegal touching penalty. You are allowed to come back in bounds and make a catch if you are pushed out of bounds which Williams clearly was.

Its only a penalty if you go out of bounds on your own.

Unbelievable.

The rules applied were correct as far as I could tell, though it is a big confusing. Because Freeman was out of the pocket, that made the push out of bounds legal.

That said, I think it is garbage. If a defender pushes you out, you have a right to return and be the first to touch the ball. If you go out on your own, you're screwed. That makes things so simple and easy, which means the NFL will never implement it.

The simplest way would be to physically not allow players to go out of bounds. (i.e., another way football could be more like hockey, and therefore better)

and while I'm on the subject, why "cleats"? Why not just "cleat" (i.e., one single large 'cleat' per shoe, rather than a bunch of small, and therefore probably bunch of irrelevant ones, 'cleats' are just the shoe companies way of making a buck selling superfluous crap nobody needs. The single 'cleat' shoe can run from heel to toe.)

Guess what? I found a pic that shows he was still in the pocket rendering my initial defense of the rule wrong (but my suggestion to change it still stands.)

So this is what it felt like to play the Bucs last season...

Awesome to score 40 for the first time since I don't even remember, but if Palmer had the smallest bit of composure, we would have likely coughed up this game. Our pass defense is diabolical, it's just Old Man Barber, a rookie Barron and about 5-6 special teamers. Worryingly, this is exactly what happened last time Bill Sheridan was in charge of an NFL defense.

There'll be some games down the line where we're going to get shredded.

Way too early. This team is very fun to watch and well coached. Double up on cornerbacks in the draft and we may have something here.

Two corners, a safety, another LB, another DL. I'm hoping someone on the roster now can step into the LB slot and we know Ronde isn't going to be around forever. Pass rush needs to improve.

Biggers needs to sell Big Macs and stay off the field. Oh, and a solid tight end.

I really like the offense, I don't like the way they're coddling Freeman. His decision making needs to improve but you can't terrify the kid into becoming a stud. Loosen up and let him take some shots. Looks great when you let him find Williams downfield in man coverage.

Football gods shined on the Bucs today as that horrible call of a fumble in the endzone when it was clear as day that he crossed the goal line already, almost lost them the game.

Good for them to come back like they did. Impressive.

Talib has a pick-six for New England in his debut.

He can have a pick 6 every game left. I'm glad he's gone.

Can we move the USF Bulls to a real conference? I mean - didn't we take a step UP to the Big East from Conference USA instead of having the Big East step DOWN to the Conference USA level? I realize we're playing that way right now but c'mon...Move to the ACC already (and get a head coach)!!!!

They deserve to be in a DIII conference at this point. They are absolute garbage.
