The Tampa Bay Buccaneers let an improbable win on the road in Seattle slip away on Sunday despite leading the Seahawks 24-3 in the third quarter. The Tampa Bay offense took the field without two of their key offensive players, RB Doug Martin and WR Mike Williams. Tampa entered the game as 16-point underdogs but came prepared to play against the Seahawks. Head coach Greg Schiano has drawn criticism this year for his quarterback switch, but you cannot deny, rookie quarterback Mike Glennon is showing improvement. Glennon is just five starts into his career, but he is showing signs of maturing on the field each week. In his first start against the Arizona Cardinals, Glennon threw two interceptions while completing just 24 of 43 attempts for a mere 195 yards. On Sunday, Glennon posted arguably his best game as a professional to date. The North Carolina State product completed 73.9% of his passes with a career high 7.3 yards per attempt. Glennon completed his third straight game without t...

Darrelle Revis prefers money and losses with Bucs to wins with Jets

Darrelle Revis has had a quiet first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A lot of that has to do with the fact that the team is 0-8 and could be the worst in the NFL. Some of it has to do with the fact that Tampa Bay has insisted on playing zone coverages when […]

NFL Rumors: Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano lowers price on his house for sale

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 2014 Contenders?

The Tampa Buccaneers are a team in distress; they have just completed the first half of the 2013 season and have yet to win a game. Going back to last season they have lost 13 out of their last 14 games with their lone win against an Atlanta team who was resting their starters in Week 17 as they prepared for the playoffs. The team has had about everything imaginable go wrong for...

Bucs RB Doug Martin Looking To Return For Monday Night Football?

Despite a torn Labrum and an impending shoulder surgery for Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, there is a chance he may suit up and play next week against the Miami Dolphins. It might not be the best idea for “The Muscle Hamster’s” long term health. As an 0-8 team, the Bucs may not be shamed if  Martin gets back as fast as possible but the potential for career...

Goldson misses 2nd straight game for Tampa Bay

Free safety Dashon Goldson is sitting out his second straight game for Tampa Bay with a knee injury.

Darrelle Revis: Having more money, but fewer wins, with Buccaneers is better than winning with Jets

Players love to say “It’s not about the money.” Darrelle Revis is not one of those players. The ex-Jets cornerback — who was traded to the Buccaneers in the offseason and promptly signed an extension that will pay him $16 million this season and $98 million over the length of the six-year deal — said early Monday morning that losing, but having more money, in Tampa Bay...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers simply out coached in 2nd half again

The good teams finish. Tony Dungy had a great record in December. Jon Gruden, did not.  Tony Dungy's teams kept it close till the 4th quarter, then finished. Today's Bucs, do not. Thats because the Bucs do not have a coach that is capable of finishing games, and thus, his team, our team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, do not know how to finish games. You only have...

Bucs Running Back Mike James Throws Jump TD Pass Vs Seahawks

As I write this, the 0-7 Buccaneers lead the Seahawks in Seattle by the score of 24-7 in the third quarter, because... well, hell, I have no idea. Because the NFL is bonkers? Well, one of the Bucs' three touchdowns came on a Tim Tebow-esque jump pass from their running back, Mike James, to tight end Tom Crabtree. Yes, a jump pass, from their running back, for a touchdown....

Mike James Runs Wild vs. Seahawks

Buccaneers rookie running back Mike James had 158 rushing yards on 28 carries and also threw a two-yard touchdown pass Sunday at Seattle.Fantasy Spin:James only saw 10 carries in his first NFL start in Week 8 as Carolina controlled the clock, but he was heavily featured in Week 9.

The Buccaneers Blew A 21-Point Lead

A thorough dismantling of Greg Schiano’s Buccaneers would have been satisfying to watch, but it’s not like we haven’t seen that before. No, a novel downfall for this year’s Bucs team is to play well enough to build a prohibitive early lead, only to watch it dissolve into a devastating loss over the course of the second half and overtime.That’s right. This could have been...

Bucs execute jump pass TD from running back to tight end

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have come out of the gate hot against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon, and they’re tapping into their bag of tricks in the process.

Darrelle Revis says despite losing, '16 million is better'

Cornerback Darrelle Revis went from an overachieving New York Jets team that is 5-4 to an underachieving Tampa Buccaneers team that is 0-8. The silver lining? The money. A Jets fan tweeted Revis late Sunday night, asking if "12MM per and Rex as coach has merit vs [Schiano] & 16MM." Revis responded in a way only Revis, or maybe Albert Haynesworth, would: "naw 16...
