    What To Do With Winston?

    Nick Foles. The non elite backup Eagles QB that beat Tom Brady but lost to our backup in Game 2 this year.
  2. http://www.espn.com/soccer/manchester-united/story/3731159/manchester-united-sack-mourinho Will that affect Koetter? Or are the Glazers used to signing checks to fired coaches.
  3. Oddly enough, I thought the pass rush by the Bucs a couple of weeks ago hurt that shoulder. The style of football he plays is not good for longevity.
  4. drop a key pass by Godwin. They have to punt Ravens go three and out.. A Spence sighting. He held on the punt. Two punts. Two holds by the Bucs. Auclair and Spence.
  5. https://apnews.com/d90cdaceeca54ccc86e2fdea6d456c78?utm_medium=AP_Sports&utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=SocialFlow Plunking an opponent paid off for CC Sabathia. The New York Yankees gave Sabathia a $500,000 performance bonus, even though the 38-year-old left-hander was ejected from his final regular-season start six outs shy of the 155 innings specified in his contract for the payment. Sabathia hit Tampa Bay’s Jesus Sucre starting the sixth inning on Sept. 27 with his 55th pitch of the night, retaliation for Andrew Kittredge throwing a pitch behind Austin Romine in the top half. It was something that we did very private and weren’t looking to publicize, and I’ll just leave it at that,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. Sabathia hit Jake Bauers on the knuckles of his right hand with an 88 mph fastball with two outs in the fifth inning. Kittredge threw a 93 mph fastball behind Romine’s neck with his initial pitch in the sixth, and plate umpire Vic Carapazza issued a warning to both benches. Sabathia started out of the Yankees dugout and had to be intercepted by manager Aaron Boone. After New York opened an 11-0 lead, Sabathia hit Sucre the lower left leg with a 93 mph cutter on his first pitch in the bottom half, causing Carapazza to eject the pitcher and Boone. “I don’t really make decisions based on money, I guess,” Sabathia said after the game. “I just felt like it was the right thing to do.”

    yes. We were 2-14 that year and tanking deliberately so we would get Winston or Mariota. To be fair we were not tanking in the 2014 Ravens game. We were just that bad.

    When I heard our castoffs at linebackers were being replaced by other castoffs including an undersized safety, I am just shocked the score was not worse. As bad as the D was yesterday, the Ravens beat us in 2014 48-17. Flacco threw 5 TDs by halftime when the score was 38-0.

    The Buc's Defense SUCKS

    I will defend the defense mainly the backups to the backups were playing at linebackers. We were weakest when the Ravens were the strongest on the run. They moved Adams from safety to linebacker as they had 4 linebackers yesterday. Adarius Taylor was out and he is a backup. Minter was hurt. It was nobodies subbing for nobodies. David was the only starter out there.
  9. There are Packer fans that want to dump Aaron Rodgers. The criticism is very high but fortunately for them, it is not likely any one in Packer management.

    Marino made the Super Bowl once and got clobbered by a well balanced 49er team that could run and throw the football and a very talented but under rated defense. The Bucs are not a balanced team. After Fitz shocked the NFL for the first two weeks, teams adjusted their defenses. The Saints were always great at throwing the ball but they had three losing seasons in a row and 4/5 from 2012-16 until they developing a running attack led by Kamara to go with Drew Brees.

    Yes but not enough of them. Plus his best games are generally the games when the defense sucked. Exceptions was the Bucs 45-17 win over the Eagles in 2015. 5 TDs and no picks. Had a great opener against Atlanta in 2016. I thought one of the best games he played was in 2016 when the Bucs won only 19-17 against KC. The 36-10 win over Chicago was fairly solid even though that scramble and long pass to Evans had the potential to be the biggest dumb ass play of the year.
  12. Game over. All they have to do is take a knee.
  13. Jensen blows the third down block.
  14. Bucs let the defense improve their field position. Strategy.
  15. The pick was intentional. Now the Bucs D score a TD and ties the score with a TD and two point conversion.
  16. Bucs demoralize even the teams that are beating them.
  17. His mouth was agape trying to contain all of the energy in the stadium.
  18. FG made. Score is 17-12. The excitement on this board can not be contained
  19. The punt was part of the pounce strategy. Questionable OPI call.
  20. Ravens up 17-9. Now the Bucs pounce.
  21. We settle for a made FG. Ravens have a 58.5 win % despite trailing 9-7. ast Play: 4th & 2 at BAL 3 Win %: 58.5 (1:50) C.Santos 21 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-G.Sanborn, Holder-B.Anger.
  22. Evans with the big play and gets more with the face mask.
