    Don’t really think this list applies to this game. There were none…..

  2. 2


    ASJ looked really good.

    Behaved a bit like a punk but some of the best players in the NFL behave like punks.

    You got the list correct. Go Bucs! Get Better!

    RE McCoy description above. Lovie should have challenged that ruling-we were robbed of that touchdown as well as the ASJ catch late in the game.

    1. 4.1


      lovie sucks he should have also challenge the long run in the second half when the back was clearly down by contact the whole game deer in the headlights look

    Question for those that saw the game… Sims took over the load after the half. Was doug hurt? Did they just go to Sims because the game was lost and they didnt want to risk injury?

    I don’t know what game you were watching, but Kwon Alexander and David both looked like there feet were mired in mud. He sucked!

    1. 6.1


      It’s your right to so, but I wouldn’t be too hard on Alexander and David in this game. Mariota tends to have that effect on defenders. He makes them have to think about so many things at once based on what he can do well on any given play. That’s one of main reasons I wanted him; he makes his players look better and makes defenders look a step slower but it’s just because the defenders are thinking instead of reacting.

        I’ll ponder that Pink. You usually make sense. I have lived in Hawaii for many years and I am familiar with him for HS.

    Mark you kidding with McCoy? They ran the ball right down his throat all day. Made one play, whoopie!! He’s the team captain, and leader of a punching bag defense that was clobbered today. His presser, don’t worry be happy, it’s just one game. No fire or fight in this guys belly. Always smiling, wearing his dumb floppy hat, money’s in the bank Gerry. Mean Joe Green he ain’t, not even Merlin Olsen, more like Kate Olsen. Until this sweetheart decides to get madder then hell, and not smile while losing, we re doomed.

    1. 7.1


      Suferdudes, the whole team is that way. A reflection of the coaches. We may also have an ownership problem. The’re fickle as hell. We need a Conrad Dobler on the OL and A Bill Romanowski on D. Sorry, I’m ranting!

    McCoy made 1 play and then disappeared.I’m glad we may have a punter, but his leg may fall off after this year. Let’s say Martin and ASJ and leave it at that.

      Hey I was looking for any bright spot haha. And I haven’t rewatched the game. The press box might be the worst place to view a game honestly.

    I wish Lovie would have stayed in his basement. He was so convinced that the Bucs were “Tennessee” ready. Clueless. And whoever evaluated the two QB’s and voted on Jameis as the best QB (especially from day 1) should move to another country. Owners included.

    I suspected when I turned to the Most Impressive List I would see a blank page. But here’s one you missed. Scubog, for staying the entire game having to endure the Mariota fan a few seats down my row who never let up with the “Super Mariota” and “Titan-Up” chant. It’s one stinking game! There is no way Kwon Alexander should be noted as honorable mention. Wasn’t he the one getting sucked in by the run fake time after time?

    Hey…the BUCS came ready to play…hopscotch. Let’s try for football next week.

  12. 12


    ASJ is the ONLY player that deserved to be on the last. Martin may have had a good game, but was taken away when the scoring deficit wiped out any chance he had to get a hundred yards.

  13. 13


    I can get on board with most of this list. ASJ for sure looked good, as did Martin. Unfortunately once the game got out of hand we had to bail on the run game. Not sure how GMC made this list, maybe I missed it. That fumble was definitely a BS call though.

  14. 14


    McCoy is better than average, but he’s soft. He’s no hall of famer and he is not Warran Sapp. He is also over paid IMO.

  15. 15


    I’m pretty sure most of us had forgotten Michael Koenen long before Sunday.
