  1. Preseason Wk 2 -Fins @ Bucs

    Ryan Griffin balling outta control for 2nd week straight Like I said last week, gonna once again have the best 2nd QB
  2. "It would be easy to cut down to 60 right now"

    I love our new coach Opposite of Koetter which was a "players coach"
  3. Tidbits from around the league

    You guys should check this out. It's about a dude that's currently trying to make the final roster of the Browns. Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi I know every year we always have tons of amazing grind stories of no name guys trying to make the NFL, but I have never seen a story like this one. Really rooting for him.
  4. Preseason: Bucs @ Steelers

    Sup guys! I'm a day late but it's that time of the year to check back in! Ryan Griffin is the truth. Once again, we're going to have the best backup QB in the NFL Oh and are you guys watching the mini hard knocks thing on the Bucs Youtube channel? It's actually better than our HBO version IMO
  5. Gerald McCoy released - Signs with Carolina

    I'm sorry if I sound salty but I hope we run it right down their throat when we play the Panthers
  6. Offseason Rumors

    Not really a rumor but if you guys haven't read Bleacher Report's story on Roberto Aguayo, you should. Poor kid, couldn't live up to the hype https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2837765-roberto-aguayo-vs-the-yips?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_medium=referral Here is a highlight
  7. Gerald McCoy released - Signs with Carolina

    "I will retire as a Buc" Damn McCoy really loved this place
  8. Gerald McCoy released - Signs with Carolina

    So whats our line going to look like before bringing anyone in?
  9. Beckwith placed on NFI list

    Man that is depressing. We all saw the signs that he was going to be a great backer. What's even more terrible is he was the passenger in that car accident and now his career is over. I seriously believe he could of been an all pro and a top 10 ILB in the league for years.
  10. Bucs take LB Devin White at number five

    Very excited about this pick I LOVE blazing fast Linebackers, I can't wait to see what he brings.
  11. I'm very happy about this signing. I managed to catch a handful of Bronco's games last season and think that this dude has the talent to be a starter.
  12. Offseason Rumors

    Sup guys. How's the offseason treating you all? I didn't know where to post this so I hope this thread is ok. So I go on YouTube and see NFL made a "top 100 plays of the 2018 season" compilation. So I watch it. Guess how many Bucs plays made it on there? Hint: it'z zero. Guess how many were plays against the Bucs? 4. Four plays. Conte getting stiff armed on Monday night made top 5. LMAO. Anyways just wanted to have a #ItsABucsLife moment with everyone. Here's the comp:
  13. GDT - NFCCG Rams (13-3) @ Saints (13-3): Get loud.

    You guys got robbed. I still however think you got 2-4 years left in Brees playing at a very elite level so you're not done.
  14. The un-HYPEd Thread

    Some of you obviously watched the NFC Championship game between the Rams and Saints. What a game, couldn't have asked for a more entertaining one. However, did you guys by chance notice how badly the players wanted to win?? Did you see them on the sidelines how fired up they were and how seriously they took the game? Both teams had this but the Rams REALLY had it. The way they picked each other up and how winning energy they displayed was amazing. Aaron Donald was on the sideline PRAYING when they lined up for that game winning 57 yarder. You can tell that the entire team has their hearts in this 110%. I touched on this a little but on the Bruce Arians got hired thread, but to expand on this more, THIS is what we need. A winning culture on this team, where the players want to win just as badly as the fans do. I feel like we have been missing this ever since Gruden left. Chucky was not the best at this, but he did a decent job. After him however, every coach has failed MISERABLY at this IMO. Raheem tried with the whole "Youngry" thing, but he was just too inexperienced, to Shiano who also gave it effort but failed, to Lovie who also failed and Dirk who had the same result, despite having a few decent seasons in that period between all of them. It just seems like once Gruden left, almost every player who comes here just comes here to collect a paycheck and go home. Hearing reports of Djax falling asleep in meetings, former players talking about watching Rocky and playing games on their phone instead of watching film, it just seems like we don't have this winning mentality. This is what Arians really needs to bring to this team to shoot some life into them and future players to come. Again, we can argue all we want about our QB being inconsistent at times, we can argue how our O-line is bad, and how our backers cannot cover the pass. But those technicals are irrelevant if only half the team is in it. We need to be more like the Rams and Saints, if you didn't see the game I highly recommend watching a re-run of the game. Both sidelines and players were so fired up and had so much raw energy all wanting to win at any cost. It was truly amazing. This is where it starts, how great football teams are made. But for the technicals, our old buddy Mark Barron was in that game playing for the Rams. All I gotta say is he was never this good in Tampa. I realize he is in a completely different scheme and even playing a different position, but at times the way he shot gaps on the run play and make very solid tackles, he never did stuff like that in Tampa. You can tell he is just playing at a much higher level than he was when he was here. This is the difference in playing on a team with a winning mindset where every single player gives it 110% because they want to win at all costs. Again, I truly hope Arians brings this kind of vibe to our team. We need it.
  15. Man I'm excited!! And Byron Leftwitch a OC??? Damn that's gonna be fun(I hope) Man I remember when he played for us, his windup to get the ball out and throw was like a slow loading screen. On a side note, I hope one thing that Bruce brings is balls. I am so sick and tired of every single FLIPPING time we have a bad season, I always hear about crap in the locker room. A while back we had Johnthan Banks, DaQuan Bowers, DJ Swearinger, and Bradley McDougald Speak on Organization. Jonathan Banks talking to former teammates how this place was a joke because instead of watching film and preparing for the game, they instead would be watching Rocky and playing games on their phones....and they all agreeing and laughing. Then this past season I hear about this(of course only comes out AFTER the season): https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/12/28/as-desean-jacksons-time-in-tampa-comes-to-an-end-the-dirty-laundry-begins-to-emerge/ Again, I am SICK AND TIRED of reading things like that after a season ends. Besides the Jonathan Banks and company above, there was more players I can't think of at the moment from recent seasons that had similar stuff come out. Our locker room just seems like a damn joke. I feel like my high school team had a better disciplined locker room. Its as if players come to Tampa to relax and collect a check and do the very bare minimum with very little consequences. I don't know how Lovie, Shiano and Koetter tolerated this crap, but it needs to stop. You cannot have a winning team when half the squad is has their hearts and mind in the game, and the other half can care less. I am hoping that Bruce Arians ENDS this kind of crap.
