It wasn't even close, at all, ever. Week after week they trot EJ Biggers out like hes good at anything. No discipline. No sense.

They sent out STH renewals this week, too, and our tickets are going up. Why? Why should I spend that much money on a **** product with a team that does nothing for fans?

lol they're raising prices again?

Atleast the Browns have lowered them, and the Browns are in a similar situation as Lerner owns Aston Villa soccer team and the majority of his time (and money) goes into that. Lerner's alright though, he'll spend the money here but unfortunately the people in charge of spending his money never spend it wisely.

I thought the article in the paper a week ago said they were reducing them? BTW, I heard that the "tickets begin at $35" is a load of crap also.....it's actually $35 ONLY if you buy season tickets. I wouldn't be able to stand ONE game at $35 if I had to watch that display.

Mine are going down, maybe it depends on your section.

Also Ahmad Black on the active roster. Great news, I love that kid.

And the best part:
The Rays reached an agreement with young lefty Matt Moore on a five-year, $14MM contract, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Club options could bring the value to $37.5MM over eight years, and the total could top $40MM with escalators.

41 unanswered points to the Jaguars...

Before today the Jaguars hadn't scored more than 20 points this season.

Total joke of a team. Rah won't be fired until after the season because they can't replace both positions immediately but I think he just solidified his fate with todays game.

Beaten 2 weeks in a row by a rookie QB and now a rookie head coach. Jones-Drew wasn't even the reason for the loss today. I haven't been this embarrassed as a fan since the Lemon Bennett/Ray Perkins days....

We just.....suck at everything.

I had a bad feeling about this season. Every answer that Raheem and Dominik had to every question in the offseason was "Josh Freeman". "We've got Number 5, so we're gonna be great!"

Well Freeman sucks, so now what? We're not squeaking out fourth quarter comebacks against average teams anymore. Our pathetic depth chart littered with useless undrafted free agents is exposed.

I don't know what to say other than I'm tired of listening to Rah's post game excuses and plans....trying to tune him out like his players are apparently.

I get tired of hearing the sugarcoating and the lack of any real emotion. The whole rah rah thing at this point is insulting to the fanbase.

Exactly.

Looking at the salary cap figures for this year, the Yucks are $29.5M under the salary cap floor of $108M...(Kansas City is the worse at $32M.) So...aren't they required to reach the cap floor somewhere along the line? or how does this work?

I don't remember the details, but they don't need to be over the floor until 2013 or 2014, I forget which. And even then, its kind of a shade of grey.

Basically, the CBA was a pretty sweet deal for the Glazer Bros. We can keep signing Kregg Lumpkins to be our third down back.

End of next season, I believe.

And you know who pisses me off more than Rah? Freeman. Not because of the interceptions (trust me, those piss me off too) but the fact that he barks at his receivers like he's not at fault at all.

So who are the top coaching candidates this year to possibly come in here and turn this crap around? Cowher? Jeff Fisher?....

From the NationalFootballPost.com website. 2012 List of top five Head Coaching possibilities:

Greg Olson – Tampa Bay

This is Olson’s 11th year in the NFL and 6th year as a coordinator. He has been Tampa Bay’s coordinator the last three years and under his guidance we have seen the development of quarterback Josh Freeman, running back LaGarrette Blount and receiver Mike Williams. He runs a balanced but high-powered offense that is capable of putting a lot of points on the board. Like the other coaches on this list, Olson is highly respected by players, coaches and front office personnel. Having worked with Olson for a couple years in Chicago, I know how he pays attention to detail, is an excellent motivator and works well with young players. Don’t be surprised when you see this name on a number of head coaching short lists after this season.

Can someone please take him now?

If we're not going to fire Raheem, lets at least find a proper Defensive Coordinator. This dual HC/DC thing is stupid and its not working, clearly.

Gruden was basically his own OC, Morris is his own DC. During the interview process the Glazers should tell any potential HC if he ever wants to be his own coordinator he's immediately fired.

If the Bucs do end up firing Raheem after the season, I worry that the teams that have already fired their coaches will get the jump on the hiring process and we'll be left with the less than desirable choices.
