    Nothing new here. Collins looking to be the worst free agent signing by any team in recent memory. Yikes

    Coach, can I hear again as to why you think you don’t need to spend high draft picks on Offensive Linemen? I think it was something like we can get them via Free Agency and later rounds in the draft with no problem. Hmm…

    Be honest Scott, did you write this article before the game or after…Most Disappointing = OLine and QB, repeat, repeat, repeat….

    I’m with you there EEB and Horse. With the Defense really improving and playing well enough to win, the offensive line is the main culprit with our QB a close second in these agonizing defeats. Marcus Mariotta is probably considering staying at Oregon to get his Masters Degree when he looks at this O-line. I’m not a big fan of free agency for the very reason that we are seeing with this scrap heap collection. But we can’t expect to line up five rookies………or can we? Couldn’t be much worse.

    Most of our free agent signings were back ups, or roll players on their previous teams. It’s not their fault we gave starter money, and jobs to back ups, blame L, and L. It was clear yesterday they don’t trust McClown hence the 1st, and 2nd down runs after the turnover on the 10. It was like let’s not blow this field goal. The only reason I can see us still playing McClown is we don’t really want to win anymore, which is probably for the best. Hopefully our next O.C. will want to hire a whole new offensive staff, I don’t see any of this group worth keeping. Warhop on the top of that list to be let go. Lovie should’ve hired one of the O.C.’s that reached out to us after Tedford left. Sticking with Arroyo, and being left short handed with the staff was a huge mistake. I know, so was hiring Lovie.

    The Bucs are not a bad football team, we are a bad offensive football team. This defense is turning into what we thought they’d become its the offense that dropped the ball. With yesterdays loss we secured the rights to the 2nd overall pick in the draft which was big given our glaring need at QB. McCown stunk but thats no shock, the o line was atrocious which is only a slight downgrade from their usual awful performance. Winless for Winston the rest of the way!

    1. 6.1


      “winless for Winston”? you have got to get kidding right? I wouldn’t have Winston on the Bucs if came to us as a free agent

      1. 6.1.1


        Winston or Marriota wil be the pick. The QB position has to be upgraded or else no other move will matter.



          Have you guys been watching Winston this yr? Not to mention the guy is the biggest idiot in college sports ever



            The minors flaw I see in Winstons game are correctable with proper coaching. Mariotta requires us to either adapt our play calling to his strengths or bench him til he’s ready to play under center. Both are good choices but my preference is with Jameis since he comes in most ready to play and with the better arm. Through all the off the field stuff with Jameis his team continues to win and its largely bc of him so yes Ive watched him. His play down the stretch of games is head and shoulders above anything we’ve seen here since Freeman prior to the drugs. I judge QBs by money time and Winston is lights out when it counts. He gets my vote even after the 4 picks against my Gators.

    Also hope the Bucs have already contacted Chudzinski about becoming OC next year.

    Scott, you should simply rename this segment ” all Lovie’s usual suspects”. Forget the free agents, even forget the draft, nothing will change in Tampa until a change is made where it needs it the most, the coaches office! This group could draft the second coming of Joe Montana with the 2nd pick and just jerk him around and get him killed for two 3-13 seasons before trading him for a 6th round pick. A fish rots from the head down, I can smell the Bay all the way here in Jersey.

    Licht and Lovie made poor decisions on O-line – getting rid of Zuttah and Davin Joseph. And then going into season without a competent back-up center. Gilkey had a poor game, but he’s not a center – that’s on L&L. It really looks like the O line is made up of a bunch of back-ups. Cutting loose Tim Wright and drafting Saf-Jenkins was another mistake. Should have used that pick for O-line. Lots of poor personnel decisions and frankly poor coaching. Redford going down is nobody’s fault. But how L&L have responded is terrible. Frazier has done a nice job with d and special teams is coming around even if we can’t return a kick or a punt [tell me why again did we not sign Devin Hester] Again, lots of poor personnel decisions.

    stlbucsfan; go look at some of the FSU baseball video and watch Winston as an outfielder throwing the ball in year one of baseball and watch him pitch as their main reliever in year two of baseball. You’ll find your answers.
