Bucs’ losing streak extends to seven

Maurice Jones-Drew, E.J. Biggers AP

The Jacksonville Jaguars have acquired for the next four years the bragging rights to northern Florida.

The Jags pounded the Buccaneers on Sunday, 41-14.  The victory came after Jacksonville spotted Tampa a 14-0 lead.

Maurice Jones-Drew fueled the effort for the home team, with two rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns.  Jones-Drew had 85 rushing yards and 77 receiving yards.

The Jags are now 4-9, and interim head coach Mel Tucker picked up his first career win.  The Bucs, with seven straight losses, are now 4-9, too.

In fact, all three Florida teams currently are 4-9.  At least it’s sunny there.

    Tampa Bay teased us last year,one more horrible year and raheem is going to get fired,hes a legend in irvington nj like that matters

    The sad thing is that Raheem will probably not be fired. The ever cheap Glaziers are getting a twofer with him as HC and DC.
    This silly, sad experiment propagated by yes man, Mark Dominic, has been exposed over and over again…
    It’s not about young. It’s not about hungry. It is, and has always been, about cheap.
    I just wish one of the NFL owners who actually care about their team would refuse to pay revenue sharing with this nightmare of a team.

    Waiting for all those big mouths at the beginning of the year to tell us what an “elite” QB Josh Freeman is.

    How about the Jags players, they help one coach lose his job and then place a GOLD chain around the new coach neck when they win one game. How cheap was that! They must of planed that to buy this chain and medallon for this moment. No wonder no one in Jacksonville buys tickets. CLASSLESS!!!!!

    And the streak will be 10 by Jan 1, and perhaps will be further extended starting next season.

    I honestly don’t see another win on the Bucs’ schedule. Home to Dallas, then on the road to Carolina and Atlanta. And I also don’t see how you can keep a coach who ends the season on a ten-game losing streak.

    Is Tampa in the Andrew Luck talk?

    No, but I’ve read a lot of people that wouldn’t mind seeing them take Robert Griffin III.

    41 points to the lowly Jags. 11 penalties. 7 turnovers. This is the most undisciplined team I’ve ever seen in Tampa, save the 76 and 77 Bucs. You know. The one that lost their first 26 games. This guy is a joke as a coach. Raheem has had his 15 minutes of fame. Unfortunately for Bucs fans, it has lasted 3 years. He doesn’t have any control over his players. He’s too much the buddy, and too little the coach. We need to clean the slate and start fresh as far as the coaching staff is concerned. Bring in somebody that can evaluate talent and a head coach that can get unruly, undisciplined players under control, or send them out the door. I am a season ticket holder and I am cancelling my tickets for next year. If the Bucs fire Morris and that shabby excuse of a coaching staff, I will re-up my tickets.

    Did you see the Jags douse their head coach with Gatorade? And then give their coach a medal? It’s only beating the Bucs, guys. Act like you’ve done that before.

  17. mtheparrothead says: Dec 11, 2011 10:20 PM

    It was Mel Tucker’s first win as a head coach jack arse that’s why they doused him. It’s quite understandable.

  18. preakin says: Dec 12, 2011 1:14 AM

    @ maddogwhite

    Freeman is the man, he is a franchise qb, look at his stats last year, the kid is 23 years old, and has played with a injured throwing hand all year, and now a bad throwing shoulder, I don’t care who you are, you will not succeed with those injuries, plus he has no receivers to help him but Winslow and Williams, but your only as good as your 2nd and 3rd reciever. FREEMAN IS A ELITE QB IN THE NFL, so to all the Freeman haters keep hating, come back to me when he grows up.

  19. ilovefoolsball says: Dec 12, 2011 4:41 PM

    Being a division rival to the Bucs, I hope that they keep both Freeman and Morris for the next 5 years.
