I have good news, bad news and terrible news regarding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
The good news is the Buccaneers’ defense played a better game against the Rams than they did against the Carolina Panthers one week ago. Tampa only gave up one touchdown to the Rams, and held St. Louis to four field goals.
The bad news though is that Tampa’s...
Up and down. Back and forth. Left and right. There’s no telling what direction an NFL team will go from week to week.
Just two games into the 2014 season, this fact has already been hammered home. Once again, the league is proving to be a week-by-week proposition, where any team can rise or fall.
This makes it tough sometimes to separate the contenders from the pretenders. But...
If you thought the first Sunday of the NFL season was crazy, yesterday managed to be even wackier.
The Bills are alone atop the AFC East, the Saints are 0-2 after losing to the Browns and the defending champs were smacked in the mouth by the Chargers. To finish the day off the Bears stunned the 49ers with an epic comeback on Sunday Night Football.
Did you miss any of it? No worries...

The Buccaneers’ plan for RB Doug Martin all along was to make sure he would be available for Thursday night’s game, however, Bobby Rainey‘s solid performance appears to have complicate matters. (Tom Krasniqi)

They won’t say it publicly, but all you have to do is look at the playcalling and listen to the press conferences to know something is going on. It’s already been discussed and debated as to why the Buccaneers did not call a pass play on a third-and-7 inside the redzone. More telling was never throwing a pass inside the red zone after Josh McCown‘s interception inside the...
Several teams are more than willing to go down swinging with the arm of their quarterbacks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not one of them. As head coach Lovie Smith said during his post-game press conference, they left opportunities out on the field. For the second straight week we are...
A Mike Evans injury with 0:08 seconds left in the game resulted in a 10 second run off and a loss for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The day started with perfect weather conditions but quickly turned gloomy for the Buccaneers’ second game of the season as they hosted the St. Louis Rams. It turns out that the day also turned dark for the Bucs as they drop to 0-2 after a 19-17 defeat.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have lost their best defensive player to a broken hand. All-Pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy left Sunday’s game against St. Louis with a hand injury and will not return.

With the 1 O'clock games starting in a half hour, you may want to go ahead and bench Bucs RB Doug Martin. There are reports that the Bucs may keep him inactive for the game against the Rams. Martin suffered a knee injury in week 1 that forced him out of the game.If Martin does not play, Bobby Rainey would get the start and could be valuable in a PPR league.Tweets about "...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams will face off against one another in a match-up of two win-less teams.
A week ago the Buccaneers (0-1) were unable to defeat backup quarterback Derek Carr to start the season. Now they will again be looking at backup as the Rams (0-1) bring third string Austin Davis in for a start. The Buccaneers defense should be all systems go in this...
There will be one less winless team in the standings after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
The Bucs hope to redeem themselves after a disappointing 20-14 loss to the Panthers. While the Bucs defense kept Tampa in the game, their offense couldn’t get going until it was too late. The Rams come into Tampa following a brutal 34-6 loss to the Titans, where...
Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) is expected to play in Week 2 against the Rams according to the Tampa Bay Times.Fantasy Spin:Coach Lovie Smith was adamant all week that Martin was not bench in the Week 1 loss. The coach also reassured the media that the Buccaneers would stay committed to the running game. Martin is a RB2 this week.
The 2014 regular season did not start out as planned for the Buccaneers after their loss last week to the Carolina Panthers. They’ll be put to the test once again as they battle injuries while hosting a tough St. Louis Rams defense. Here are some keys to the game that can help the Bucs even out their record.
After suffering a left knee injury on Sunday, Doug Martin seems to be on track to play this Sunday. He returned to bench late in the game Sunday, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Lovie Smith decided to keep Bobby Rainey in the game as he said Rainey gave them a 'boost'.There has been a little controversy to Martin not returning. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Last...

Bad timing for #Bucs DE Adrian Clayborn, who tore his bicep. His 5th-year option was declined, this was...
Doug Martin is being listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams but he is expected to play in the contest according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Lovie Smith has adamantly denied that Martin was benched in the Buccaneers opening week loss to the Panthers. Smith again has promised to stick to the ground game and has spoken to Martin.
Depending on what you have read this...

INJURY REPORT – Tampa Bay vs. St. Louis – Sunday, September 14, 2014
This was supposed to be Adrian Clayborn‘s contract year. One in which he would prove to the Buccaneers coaching staff and the team’s fanbase he belongs. But after the news Friday morning of the team placing him on injured reserve, his attempts and hopes were cut short. There were lots of question marks entering the 2014 season for Clayborn. His 13 sacks in 36 games with Tampa Bay left...

Unfortunately, they received some bad injury news about one player that was expected to have a fairly important for them. Adrian Clayborn was placed on IR this morning with a biceps injury. Bucs announced they...
The Buccaneers aanounced on Friday that defensive end Adrian Clayborn has a torn bicep and will miss the rest of the season. Clayborn practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday apparently trying to fight through the injury before it was determined he would shut down for the season.
The post Buccaneers lose Adrian Clayborn for the year with a torn bicep appeared first...
Via the team’s communications department, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today announced that they have placed defensive end Adrian Clayborn on Injured Reserve (biceps) and re-signed defensive end Scott Solomon.
It’s no secret that the Buccaneers struggled to sustain drives and run the ball with any sort of authority in week one. The good news is that the team is expecting Jeff Tedford to be back in action and calling the plays this week. That’s surely a good thing because this offense faces...
