  1. The London game I can accept as the price of the Super Bowl. 7 weeks without a home game is nuts. 2 west coast trips (San Diego and Seattle) sandwiched between two division road games at Carolina and New Orleans. I get a Titans road game that is 2 hours from my new home. I better commute since it is $34 a day to stay at a hotel and park in downtown Nashville near the Titans Stadium. The ownership is at fault in the sense they command so little respect that fucking them over is easy peasy. Let them try that shit with Jerry Jones. Mike North would be the scheduler for the Polar Bear XFL league in Alaska. The worst disrespect the Bucs got was after the Super Bowl season in 2002 was an extra exhibition game in Japan and opening the season in Philly's new stadium on MNF in 2003.
  2. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26591126/arians-rails-ridiculous-bucs-schedule "If we had to do-over, if we had a redo, I'd love to take another shot at that Tampa Bay schedule," North said. "I'm not sure that's really fair to their fans. I'm hopeful that we didn't so something to the Buccaneers that they feel like was really unfair." http://blog.siriusxm.com/tampa-bay-buccaneers-nfl-schedule-mike-north-football/ The Bucs do play two of their first three games at home and three of their final four. Still, North can’t help but feel a sense of regret over that seven-week stretch when they will be away from Tampa. “I know we’re not allowed to root for anybody,” North said. “But I’m kind of rooting for the Buccaneers through October.” Gee Thanks Mike.

    Ed Oliver

    Sam Wyche's pick of Santana Dotson was a top notch DT esp since he was a 5th rounder. I believe he was Defensive ROY for having 10 sacks.

    The Bucs were able to trade down and still get Sapp. Thank God for the drug rumor mill. The extra picks for trading down to get Sapp also got the Bucs Derrick Brooks.

    Ed Oliver

    I think he is referring to McCoy and Price in 2010. But the best DE we have drafted as a high pick would be Dewayne White in 2003 as a 2nd rounder in 2003. At best he was a good situation pass rusher. Regan Upshaw and Marcus Jones who were first round picks who had more bad years than good. Upshaw was a liability against the run and sold to the Jags for a conditional 7th round pick. Jones had two good years in 1999 and 2000 and was hurt in the other years. Bowers and Clayborn were not the force they were supposed to be. Gaines Adams was good as an arena football player Stylez White.

    Rays running to a mini slump.

    Finally off that losing streak. Rays beat KC 6-3. They follow it up with a 5-2 win Tuesday.
  7. 3 straight losses with Snell missing a start and the two best relievers Castillo and Alvarado on the Rays suffering all 3 losses after basically being unhittable in previous relief appearances. Good rallies in all three losses but Pham's hitting is great but his base running has been abysmal. Got picked off 1st with the tying run on second. Against the Orioles, he was caught stealing third when he was already on second with the winning run in the 9th. Rays lost in the 11th.

    Kraft is not too crafty

    Maybe Kraft can call himself Ron Mexico Sr with a NFL shop jersey with the Number 69.

    Rays are 14-4

    6 series in a row clinched with last night's win.
  10. Lightning swept. 3 empty net goals when they pulled Vasi from the goal with 2 minutes left.

    Rays are 14-4

    Nice win against the Orioles tonight. 7 strong innings by Glasnow. Bullpen lights out. Post Edit- Garcia can hit!

    Offseason Blows

    2016 t 9-7 was respectable. You do not have to win any more games. Just switch the Saints and Panthers results in Game 15 and 16 and you have a playoff team with the same record. We win the tiebreaker in that scenario. In 2010, the Lions loss with the bad Offensive PI call against Winslow Jr was the bad break.

    Orlando Magic fever

    The Magic Fever can not be contained after the upset win Saturday.
  14. The other safeties stayed so far away that they would not get a "stiff arm" after seeing what happened to Conte. It is not as humiliating when you are not in the same zip code of the receiver. You can always argued over who was fault for the lack of coverage.
