    Coaching – a great big freakin F!

    1. 1.1


      I agree and isn’t a c = to average there was not one average group yesterday, I don’t think it was even third grade level, which wouldn’t be average for a nfler

    Yes Iabucfan the coaching is a fat F for sure. These guys look lost. Raheem was in over his head and Shiano probably wasn’t ready for the NFL but this is just crap, I will say Lovie has more talent on the team than Raheem and Shiano had to work with for sure. Results are not any better.

    From what I saw, I am surprised the RB’s got a C; same with WR’s and TE’s. The point were scored long after they throttled it down.

    common man! We were practice for the Ravens. 10 for 13. 5 TD’s! Half his throws were TD’s! Thats in 16 mins. The fastest scoring since 1970. The Bucs took that record on Sunday. They went into their 4 min offense before halftime. Terrible. This is not little league, & nobody gets a trophy.

    Disgusting across the board lets move on

    Based on 2 points for a C, 1 for a D and 0 for an F, the combined average is 1.11, which is above a D, but less than a D +. I guess they got credit for showing up. “80 percent of success is showing up” Woody Allen I guess I “Wood” disagree.

    Next up the Yuckanneers vs. the ViQueens, don’t change that channel! This will be a classic. Perhaps there will be comic relief in the form of a wrong way run a la Jim Marshall while playing for the Vikings in 1964 vs the 49’ers. He ran 66 yards and believing it to be a touchdown, threw away the ball, resulting in a safety….now that’s a record waiting to be broken. The Vikings still won…it would be better comdy if that sealed a loss.

    Go Bucs, this is your last best chance for a win!

    This teams needs time. Banks not being there and Goldson not being there put major holes is the D because the backups are trash. The OL does not have chemistry right now, will take time to build that. The DL has good players, just not getting it done right now. And Doug Martin is not doing any favors for us. Maybe New England will want him for cheap with Ridley out. Lovie is not the kind of coach that is going to make a one-year turnaround on a team. He is conservative in style and will win games with that, just when the team has chemistry and knowledge of the schemes. Also, some big parts of the team out is not helping, Tedford, Jenkins, Goldson, and a bunch of players on 80% health right now. I see things getting a lot better in a year or two, but maybe it will take longer. we just have to be patient.

    ColeRiel I agree. Making many moves at the back up positions by bringing player’s in who have the potential to be moving up as starter’s. we don’t need the ones who have proven they weren’t valuable enough to stay with their previous teams and get a raise. Now we see why.

    adapt or die is the old saying… its very disheartening as a fan to hear lovie say that there is no chance that the scheme will be changed. WTF is he thinking. Obviously what hes trying to do is not working so why not consider makeing some changes? The tampa 2 is based off of a strong pass rush up front and we produced “a negative pass rush” joe flacco had all day to throw the ball (and all the receivers ran were inside slants and streaks)
