Cowboys cruising early in Tampa

The Bucs have lost seven straight games, and they haven’t been close in a lot of them.

It’s very early, but it looks like they are headed for an eighth straight loss on Saturday night.

The Cowboys lead 14-0 early on the strength of two Tony Romo touchdowns. Dallas has been able to run the ball with Felix Jones and Sammy Morris (!). Romo has done a nice job extending plays against a weak Bucs pass rush.

To make matters worse, Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib has been on and off the field. He’s clearly at less than 100%.

We’ve watched the Bucs defense a lot during this losing streak, and there’s very little reason to think they will start slowing the Cowboys down during the rest of this one, no matter what Josh Freeman and the Bucs offense is able to do.

    I don’t know much about this Tampa team, but they look like a complete mess considering it’s a home game in this stage of the season.

    Just like every Bucs game.

    They get in a hole
    Forced to abandon ground game
    Freeman forces a slew of throws, gets picked.

    Rinse and repeat next Sunday

    Lol, Morris comes in and busts one for 15 yards. Just another example of RBs being RBs.

    Of course, this run defense is a disgrace. Bring Warren Sapp out of retirement

    the dweeb is worried. he hurd something is coming his way.

    I’ve seen more heart in the tin man.

    Morris is going to be canned as of Monday.

    Has a head coach ever been fired during halftime?

  8. pacificnw7722 says: Dec 17, 2011 9:33 PM

    It’s VERY obvious this coach is DONE!

  9. johnny1979 says: Dec 17, 2011 9:33 PM

    Morris should be fired at halftime. The Bucs are garbage

  10. david7590 says: Dec 17, 2011 9:33 PM

    Go Cowboys and go by at least 7 pts.

  11. thefiesty1 says: Dec 17, 2011 9:34 PM

    Wow! The CowBabies got off the bus this week. Let’s see if they’re still paying attention in the 4th quarter.

  12. tampajoey says: Dec 17, 2011 9:36 PM

    Too bad the game wasn’t blacked out here in Tampa.

  13. miamidolphins1 says: Dec 17, 2011 9:39 PM

    these primetime games just keep getting better. hey, at least this thursday we got the colts to watch, lol

  14. chazatlas says: Dec 17, 2011 9:48 PM

    Coach Morris has that unfortunate Dead Man Walking, “I’m gonna get fired in the morning” look on his face.

  15. tampajoey says: Dec 17, 2011 9:50 PM

    Hopefully Bucs GM Mark Dominik will send Raheem Morris home at halftime.

  16. bearsrulepackdrool says: Dec 17, 2011 9:59 PM

    I know this probably won’t make headlines but that first TD shouldn’t have counted. He (Miles Austin) didn’t have possession in the end zone. The again, when the final score is 45-10 no one will really care.

  17. avanderlay says: Dec 17, 2011 9:59 PM

    Please fire Morris & Olsen at halftime

  18. jdandcoke says: Dec 17, 2011 10:04 PM

    cmon dallas collapse

  19. gosuhgo says: Dec 17, 2011 10:09 PM

    I remember getting flamed for saying the Bucs were pretenders coming into this season.

  20. usetabe says: Dec 17, 2011 10:13 PM

    Mike Mayock is my favorite announcer. Someone please give this guy a decent game to announce.

  21. tigrrrr says: Dec 17, 2011 10:16 PM

    lol… When romo loses this in the fourth, the cowboys will implode!

  22. tigrrrr says: Dec 17, 2011 10:18 PM

    I am officially sick and tired of the NFL network!!! They are leveraging loyal fans against cable companies, in the meanwhile we dont see any nfl network games.

  23. 6ball says: Dec 17, 2011 10:33 PM

    .

    Wait till the Bucs put in their 28 million in cap space in the 4th quarter.

    .

  24. trollaikman8 says: Dec 17, 2011 10:34 PM

    Agreed but It should be noted that cable companies suck, for the most part.

    you are lucky you cant watch these nfl network games. they are brutal games. i have the nfl network so im forced to watch it, but its not a bad thing this year if you cant watch it.

  26. commandercornpone says: Dec 17, 2011 10:37 PM

    tigrrrr may have a point. damn cowboys are letting them crawl right back in it.

    just stay up by 8+, dallas. pops needs a new pair of slippers.

  27. jimr10 says: Dec 17, 2011 10:40 PM

    But, the meltdown has begun..Fun to watch.

  28. tigrrrr says: Dec 17, 2011 10:46 PM

    Ahhh… Shouldnt have left the cable co’s out of the blame too! Good point troll!

  29. damnskins703 says: Dec 17, 2011 11:08 PM

    Freeman looks like trash this yr, no accuracy, bad decisions, Intentional grounding…Bucs looked so promising last yr and now they look worse than the colts….Freeman just isn’t smart at all its 4th qtr 5 min left and he’s throwing 2 yard passes in the middle of field, really Freeman….Bucs need a qb and a new coach

  30. bigbensahero says: Dec 17, 2011 11:09 PM

    Boring game. What happened to Freeman? He was good last year.

  31. spytdi says: Dec 17, 2011 11:14 PM

    Jerry Jones: Since you want to play General Manager, you need to relieve retard (Rob Ryan) of his duties and bring in Jack Del Rio to be Def Coord. in the offseason. Ensure he doesn’t have “prevent” in his playbook.

    It’s very early, but it looks like they are headed for an eighth straight loss on Saturday night.

    Hell of an influence Haynesworth has been down there ….. the whole team is playing like him now!

    Does he still think he should have been in Tampa all along, and is he spending too much time on his boat again?

    I’m disappointed there was no Dez vs Aqib fight.

    What’s a buccaneer? Too much to pay for corn.
