  1. ROFL! You know, since I turned my wrath to rapey-boy, My blood-oath to detest Dilfer until my dying day has become less of an obsession. I miss it sometimes. My hate was so pure.
  2. I detest Jaboo as a person with the fire of a thousand suns. Anything that gets him off this roster is a bonus in terms of rekindling any interest I might have in rooting for this franchise. The fact that they've now traded for arguably the greatest QB in NFL history is just a bonus. I don't care if he's 90 years old. He's not Winston, so I'm okay with it.
  3. I would sincerely like to thank pewter report and the fans who insist on camping out in Winston's butthole for going above and beyond in ridiculous attempts to justify his inability to hold on to the ball. If they are indeed successful and they do talk themselves into retaining the turnover prone rapey dickhead, there will be no temptation for me to return to watching Bucs football and my Sunday afternoons in the fall will continue to be free to accomplish things around the house and spend time with family. Thanks again. P.S.-- We also need some more articles and comments about how if a Bucs kicker had made that field goal in the 1st quarter they would have won by two at the end. Because that's totally how it works.
  4. 30 reasons why this is a shitty take.
  5. So that's the problem. Winston takes big risks when the Bucs have a lead because he's afraid the other team will catch up. Ummmm K. I knew he was fucked in the head, but I didn't realize just how much.
  6. Part of it is you want, but Winston sucks in every way as a person, player, and leader. He's supposed to be the figurehead of a team. Maybe if they had one who was worthy of any respect at all, the rest of the team wouldn't be quite as much of a joke
  7. That's actually less than I would have thought. Like BB sad, they're not necessarily starting because they deserve to. Some of them are starting because their teams feel like they have no choice but to hope some for some form of miracle that they start playing up to their investment. Kind of like this team here in Tampa.
  8. I would disagree with that, because drafting a QB number one is always different. A first-round pick at any other position may soon be outed as a bust, and the coaching and management will be criticized and the team will move on. But when you take a quarterback at that pick, especially one that's anointed to be the savior from day one, the team has essentially mortgaged next 3 or 4 years against that player's results. A lot of us knew Winston was a piece of shit in every single way, including his playing talent, the day he was drafted. But nobody listens to us because we're wrong as many times as we're right. But the coaches and general manager can't do that. They have to try to make that pick work. And keep trying and keep trying. That's why the Bucs suck. It's no surprise to me and shouldn't be to any Bucs fan that their only Super Bowl was won with a journeyman QB and a badass defense. Build the team from the lines back and it may be a slower process, but you'll be getting gradually better instead of twisting in the wind with a dumbass doofus clown like Winston.
  9. Honestly never had a big problem with the Trop. It's not pretty and it's not the coziest place, but they've done what they can with that venue. I love getting tickets on the ledge in left field, where you can mingle and walk around with bar service - it's like hanging in a sports bar with your buddies, only the big screen happens to be a baseball game going on in real life. There's plenty of parking - food selections could be better, and I'm not crazy about the no-cash policy. But for the most part the staff is friendly and accommodating. My kids are too old now for the Rays tank but they loved it; nice little feature. If I have one big gripe it's that they did away with the Cuesta Ray Cigar Bar upstairs. I enjoyed that place. Sometimes I'd spend more time in there and on the terrace outside than watching the game from my seat....
  10. Now in year 5.... Before game 1: He's the man! After game 1: (applicable if no new HC or OC hired in offseason). He sucked but that's only because the coaching sucks. OR After game 1: (if new HC or OC) He sucks but he'll get better as he learns the system. After game 4: Bench his ass! (Name of backup) can't do any worse. After game 8: Might as well put him back in there and see if he gets any better. After all, he was the overall #1. After game 12: Seriously, this misogynist rapey piece of shit sucks.  After game 14: Blow this fucking place all to hell. After game 16: yes, he played for shit but I thought I saw glimpses of something late in the season. I think I'm willing to give the misogynist rapey piece of shit thief another chance, Monday post-draft: maybe this will be his year. Game 1: see above.
  11. Maybe the QB Whisperer only whispers to quarterbacks who were going to be fucking great anyway.
  12. Warms my heart to see how a few of you still drink the Kool-Aid, year after year... I'm a Bucs atheist as long as Winston is quarterback, but keep the faith Brothers. I may not root for the Bucs anymore, but I'm rooting for you!
  13. Watch the little bit of that and skipped around. I'm not only nostalgic for the creamsicle right now, but announcers like Stockton and Madden, well, at least before Madden became a parody of himself.
  14. If you're old enough to have been around during the birth of the Bucs, there's a difference between how horrible they were back in the day and how snake bitten they are now. I am convinced that their struggles over the past decade plus are due to bad karma from the way the Glazers gutted the team. But as we know, the Bucs have been worse.... far worse. The 1976 team put on the worst performance of any NFL team in history. In the second season they weren't much better. But they came by their ineptitude honestly, and even in those ugly creamsicle uniforms, they were easy to love, like a three-legged puppy. So I was a big fan of Ricky Bell, and if you're too young to have known what the Bucs were about back then, it's worth looking up some highlights. He was a big, steady, old school running back but he had some moves. And apparently he was just a sweetheart off the field. Unfortunately he ended up dying in 1984 from a weird disease with an unpronounceable name. I don't know why God seems to take so many of the good ones before their time. Anyway, this morning I was in the car and an old novelty dance song came on from 1967 called "Tighten Up". (I'm really not an old fogey. I listen to Volbeat and Khalid too... ) anyway, anyway, for some reason I was interested enough to Google the artist, Archie Bell and the Drells. Turns out Archie was the brother of Ricky, and those who were the brothers of Jerry Bell, who was the lead vocalist with the Dazz Band and a world karate champion. Don't know exactly why I took the time to post this, except I'm just amazed at how some families have such prolific talent, and because as hard as it was to be a Bucs fan back in the day and hear all the derision from the fans of pretty much every other team, I kind of miss those days. I cared about the Bucs then. ... RIP Ricky--
