not a statement I would think i'd ever see :)

Again I didn't watch much pre 2004. But Bledsoe on the Cowboys was a statue (behind a terrible line) who stared at Terry Glenn regardless of if he was open.

Lovie Smith face! Gotta love it!

I predict I call Josh McCown bad names three times tonight.

How fast did you get through those three?

I would take Romo over Bledsoe. In a heartbeat.

At one point I looked at the stat line for the game and Tampa had 17 yards to Atlanta's 16 first downs. Yeah...

McCown has an injured thumb and is out. God have mercy on Mike Glennon's soul.

This is awful...

Yeah I turned off the game. I've dealt with enough beatings in the NFL for one week.

Too soon?

Wow, what a curbstomp. I guess it's a good thing the game is a joke, I have an early wake-up call tomorrow. Good incentive to turn off the TV and go take a shower.

My opponent had one player in tonight's game, and he wasn't a freaking Buc. Julio Jones has put me in a 28+ point hole already.

The game is over, right? Right?

I drafted Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson this year in my Fantasy League. Despite my short career as an NFL fan, I'm prepared to declare the Bucs my most hated team on that basis alone.

EDIT: Apparently all I have to do is complain and VJ gets his first two receptions for a TD, salvaging an otherwise brutal game. So screw you Jackson! There's no way a scrub like you gets another TD with 8 minutes left!

As the owner of 2 TB receivers and a TE I feel you. At least he got a TD

The game was over about 10 minutes in.

I tried to ignore the game and play Destiny. I have the NFL app on the Xbox One. The "Highlight-Falcons TD" notification popped up so much I spontaneously developed epilepsy and have spent the last hour convulsing on the floor.

I decided that getting to 20 in Destiny and beating the game was more important than trying to figure out what words were coming out of Phil Simms' mouth.

Because I don't have enough alcohol in my place to make it make sense.

I can understand why the offense is not good. I know that the defense has injuries but how can it be so inept. They look like a bunch of clowns out there. There is no excuse (short week, new coaches) for playing that bad the 3rd game of the season.

I have no idea how this team can recover.

11 fumbles, 8 lost and two pick sixes. That had to be fun to watch.

McCown's "thumb injury" is likely to sideline him next week. Glennon should've been the starter all along.

Can't believe I just said that.

How could you not? Glennon played pretty well as a rookie on a horrible team last year. With that squad, a 19/9 TD/INT ratio is at least something to be intrigued by. I'm not sure he's "the guy", but you know what he's not? Josh McCown. McCown's been on nine different teams. A few years ago, he was coaching high school football. UFL! All of those things happened for a reason, and half a season of being good does not cancel out 12 years of being mediocre on good days.

Glennon might suck. McCown has consistently sucked outside of a brief stretch of games. McCown has now thrown four INTs this year, and all of them were incredibly bad throws and/or decisions.

Of course, when you give up 56 points, it doesn't much matter. Problem; Lovie Smith's defense requires pressure from the front four. Last night, Gerald McCoy was out with a broken hand, DE Adrian Clayborn is on IR, and, so far, Michael Johnson has done nothing as a FA pickup.

As a Browns fan, I am looking forward to beating the Ravens to a pulp. As a fantasy player, I picked up the Ravens DST this week.

That right there is why I no longer play fantasy ball.

@MMD: Sorry about your Bucs. I really thought they'd be a lot better this year (and, to be selfish, I was counting on them to beat ATL and NO a couple of times).

This plus the randomness is pretty much just rolling dice with football wrapped around it so people can pretend they actually know whats going to happen.

Fantasy bubble?

(Or, as my son would say, fantasy bah-bum; 16months)

When up in here is all destroy...

Bowers who replaced mccoy yesterday had zero tackles.

Denver @ Seattle: How is this not a night game everybody sees? Seriously?

The league was very up-front about not scheduling night games in Seattle this year after the opener due to all the blowouts in years past.

They were also pretty open about making an emphasis of pass interference and defensive holding actually being called so Seattle couldn't cheat their way to another championship. :p

SF just needed something better than a sorry ass receiver like Crabtree

A headline I'd never thought I'd see: "Carolina Panthers’ running back corps depleted for Steelers game"

Jonathan Stewart is the only healthy RB. He's also the guy most likely to pull an RGIII and get hurt while walking or tying his shoes.

In 2010, Tampa drafted DT Gerald McCoy in the 1st, WR Arrelious Benn and DT Brian Price in the 2nd. In 2011, it was DE Adrian Clayborn in the 1st, DE Da'Quan Bowers in the 2nd. Price is out of the NFL. Benn probably is. Clayborn has been unimpressive in general and is on IR for the 2nd time in four years. Bowers has been a complete flop.

Gerald McCoy, maybe the best DT in the league. The other four picks in the first two rounds in those years? Those would be why Mark Dominik no longer has a job. Earlier 1sts were the theoretical corpse of Josh Freeman, Aqib Talib before he got his head on vaguely straight, and the actual corpse of Gaines Adams. This is not a team that drafted well for a number of years, and it shows.

I love Gerald so much.
