I'm thinking Bucs by 10, and their season turns around. If not, at least we get a high draft pick!?

    I love seeing Cam the crybaby lose. His postgame interviews are classic.

    Jameis is not the franchise QB many want to believe. He has a major accuracy issues and that's something that plagued him in college. So, why did we draft him?? Sitting in my seat today watching him overthrow Evans from yards away 14 is unacceptable. He's got some awesome weapons. Jackson, Evans, Martin, Brate (though he needs to stop dropping some of those balls) and the offense is pathetic. How much of that is coaching? I think more than most people realize. I don't even want to talk about the D... :banghead

    D played better today, but the offense led by turnover prob Winston couldn't move the ball

    Panthers vs. Buccaneers final score: Jameis Winston throws away the game

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have beaten the Carolina Panthers handily, had their offense shown up. Instead, the Bucs lost a close game in ugly fashion, 17 to 3.

    The Bucs were coming off a stellar offensive and horrible defensive performance against the Buffalo Bills, and we were expecting them to continue that trend. Instead, we found the exact opposite: the Bucs defense was absolutely dominant against Cam Newton, even though they were missing their top two cornerbacks.

    Vernon Hargreaves had what may have been the best game of his career, while Ryan Smith was impressive on the other side. At safety, rookie Justin Evans continued to show off his considerable talent, while Chris Conte grabbed an interception and made a few other impact plays.

    The Bucs held the Panthers to just 17 points, and stifled Cam Newton and company for most of the game. And yet they couldn’t win, because the offense didn’t show up. Jameis Winston had one of the least productive games of his career and simply couldn’t move the ball until it was too late in the fourth quarter. And while he moved the ball then, he turned it over when they got into scoring range.

    On three occasions it seemed like the Bucs offense was finally ready to get going, when Winston turned the ball over. To be fair, he got hit while attempting to throw on two of those occasions. Still, Winston had a terrible game, especially by the standards he set this year.

    You don't see those facts looking through orange and blue glasses.

    He is a turnover machine

    He's thrown six interceptions so far this season in seven games and has fumbled eight
    Those are his numbers
