    We’ve had a terrible start…lost some important players to injury….lost to dome backup QBs….including one of the worst teams in the league (given their huge injuries)….and yet we’re only a game out of first place….let’s turn the tide, balance the luck, and make something happen this year…Go Bucs!

    Patience; it is turning around. This doesn’t mean we are going to the playoff’s; it means we won a game. Coach knows what he is doing. We need a back up QB in case Glennon gets injured; I hope it comes about soon. The OLine was much better. Mankins is making a difference. Go Bucs. By the way, the Steelers are dirty players and got away with a lot of stuff. They deserved to lose the game. Go Bucs!

    We have a back-up QB Horse. His name is Josh McCown. This is the type of game that can serve as a springboard to the rest of the season. Beat the stinking Saints and we’re back in the hunt.

    Scubog; this is one subject you and I can disagree on. McCown has shown he is a dink and dunk back up QB and this team is built on the dunkaneer philosophy. I don’t believe any teams takes Josh as a serious threat in the passing world. We need a back up QB

    Most organizations take on the personality and traits of their leader. Lovie is laid back, calm and cool. That’s exactly how most of the Bucs have played…UNTIL SUNDAY! They played with good old fashioned INTENSITY! Yes, Steeler receivers and tight end were running free and wide open all over the place, and our 1st half offense was etrocious,but for this given Sunday, it was a great comeback win…and a win is a win. Go Bucs!

    If our QB didn’t have to throw some away and didn’t have so many dropped, he would have a better than 50% completion rate. But, the Bucs have won this way years ago. So if that is the way it is WIN UGLY.

      You could say that of any QB in the league, it is what it is… 50%

    It’s not how a QB play’s during the game, it’s how he finishes the game.
