    RIP, Big Dog

    Condolences to his family. Beyond that, now is not the time for me to share my memories of listening to him on the air.....
  2. I have to say, it warms my heart to have a board reputation as a committed Dilfer-hater. And that is the perfect pic. A duck interception that didn't count because he'd already stepped out of bounds. Only Dilfer could snatch incompetence out of the jaws of ineptitude.

    News for my extended Bucschat family

    Congrats. brother! I didn't really understand the profound joy of being a parent until I became one in my late 30s. I have two daughters, and they have changed the meaning of life for me. Enjoy!
  4. This was the one that first came to mind for me as well, because it was such an obvious amateurish panic move. Clayton threatened to get on a plane to Seattle to go talk to them and Dominik immediately wrote the check. I can't blame him entirely though, because it's not like he had any experience negotiating contracts. He was purely a personnel evaluator. It would be like a megacorporation hiring a jobs headhunter to be CEO.

    Holy fuck?!? Really?

    As for the Halftime show, props to Levine for singing live, but maybe he should be one who lipsynchs for this kind of thing, because it was pretty clear that without studio sound-production magic, he sounds tinny and whiny. The gospel singer kicked ass. And I liked Big Boi's fur coat, not just because it was total ghetto badass, but because he annoyed the shit out of PETA for wearing it. And the drones spelling out the words was pretty cool, except you really couldn't tell if that was actually happening or some sort of TV trick. Other than that, no bueno. I hate unspontaneous spontaneity, so Levine can just keep his shirt on from now on, and spare us the sight of all that randomly-placed ink. He looks like a bridge abutment in South Central. And if you're going to bleep out the curse words in rap lyrics, why bring in the rapper in the first place? Funny, my daughter (who is in high school) was outraged. Not at the cursing. At the bleeping.

    Holy fuck?!? Really?

    My thoughts exactly. I would have thought there'd be more Bucs fans who remember and appreciate the actual playing of Defense. If you watch the game, it wasn't that Goff necessarily played for shit. Those two plays in the endzone the throws were there and the Patriots just made amazing plays. And they neutralized the Rams play action like no one else has since Boy Wonder arrived. Was it exciting? No. But it was satisfying to watch 3 hours of a team know exactly what it wants to do on defense, and do it? Yep

    BA wants DJax back

    Don't forget about misogyny, sexual assault, aberrant behavior and social dysfunction. #JameisLove

    What To Do With Winston?

    Exactly. The Great Purge that ushered in the age of Youngry is the reason I gave up my season tickets and have not attended a Bucs game since. But the decision to draft a misogynistic piece of shit poseur is the reason I stopped rooting for the team altogether. If he was merely a boor I could deal with it. If he was merely an axe murderer I could probably rationalize it. But as you said, every single aspect of his character repels me, and his play on the field has been strictly mediocre at best. Although I do understand he played pretty well yesterday, which is great. Awesome to see the guy rise to the occasion against another team playing out the string. Too bad he didn't get to eat the W. Fucking fake-ass twatwaffle.

    Captain Fumble is Back

    And this is Winston's career in a nutshell. Whether it's his arm, his decision-making, forced fumbles, Etc, he's just not a winner. I think he used up all his winning karma his freshman year in college. Since then, he's been remarkably ordinary. Honestly, if FSU loses that championship game to Auburn, Jameis is a third-string QB for the Detroit Lions right now. He really had no business being drafted on the first day, much less first overall.

    I wish there had been more of this type of thinking when the Bucs drafted Winston in the first place. Neither he nor Mariota were anything close to a sure thing, but at that time, there was this girlish angst to use that pick on a QB no matter what.
  11. I'm okay with a division winner hosting a wild-card team with a better record. Winning your division should mean something. I've always felt the same about the college playoffs. If you can't win your conference, you don't belong in the championship game. You had your chance, and blew it.

    The Buc's Defense SUCKS

    Actually, I thought the defense did as well as they're capable. Baltimore's offensive line is a beast. The Bucs aren't the only team they've pushed around over the last few weeks. The offense couldn't sustain much of anything in the second half, and eventually the Ravens offensive line just wore down the D. That's football.

    Winston is a career mediocrity. He has been living off his freshman year at FSU for way too long now.
