Some of you will get to know me over the next few days, some may not. I gotta say though, it's nice to be around knowledgeable , die-hard football fans again. And no worries, I'm not going to spend my entire time here to making your lives as miserable as possible like I did the Panthers fans. I got it in for them like you all do Cleveland. I DO welcome a jest here and there because after all, is football not a game of pride? And those 2 rings since 2006 deserves a lot of respect. You have certainly have mine.

I'm looking forward to talking some football and I'm looking forward to the game! Gimme a shout Steeler Nation!

Yup, come on over. I'm still not gonna feel too boastful with maybe Charlie Batch starting and some injuries piling up.

If the Steelers dont score on defense or special teams, they arent gonna put much on the board this week either. I was hopeful for a 2-2 start, but with that already secure......anything else is gravy.

Welcome aboard! Like Tony said, Bucs fans have shown up well so far...glad to have as many here as want to come over to enjoy the upcoming game with us.

I too was just hoping for 2-2 while Ben was out, and now that that is accomplished I can sit back and relax a little. Ok that's a lie, come game time I'll probably be as worked up as ever lol.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to the game. I don't get to watch a lot of Bucs games, so its great to hear about what our team will have to prepare for from the opposing teams fans.

Here's to a good game Sunday! :drink:

Sorry, but the Steelers defense is going to stomp your young QB into submission. He has never seen a defense like this one. Whether the Steeler's offense can score is a whole nother thing. So I make no predictions on who will win. But be very scared that your QB will make it through the game in one piece. They made Matt Ryan and Vince Young both look like scared high school kids.

Agreed, it's gonna probably come down to a game of field goals for us... if you even let us get that far. I'm still confident that this game is winnable for my Bucs. With Ben on your offense I give us a snowball's chance in hell against you guys. I figure you guys win like 20-7 or 20-3. With him out I imagine we match up A LOT better, at least offensively. And call me nuts but I believe we can still win the game but it would probably be something like 10-7. I said to the Panthers fans, "It's not about us being a better football team, it's that you lost your QB, your new one has a concussion and your best player is now playing for the Bears.. thereby our team is better matched against you." You guys have the defense but with Ben out... there's still some hope for us.

I don't expect much running out of us because your d-line will probably manhandle our o-line all day and I know Cadillac is gonna get stomped like a ****roach on the brand new tile floor. Josh Freeman is gonna have to win this for us. Can he do it? I'll give him a vote of confidence because he somehow finds ways to win and he has won the improbable games for us before. No offense to you guys but I trust him a hell of a lot more than Charlie Batch or whoever it is you'll be playing. It'll be an ugly win for sure if we get it. But then again you have to take those wins and win those games when your opponent is at such a major disadvantage. The odds are probably 70:30 in favor of the Steelers, but of course that's what all the talking heads at ESPN gave us to beat Cleveland and Carolina. Both are 0-2.

But Cleveland at 0-2? What's the surprise there? HIYO!

Greetings Steeler Fans and fellow Buc Fans,

2nd post. Just dropped to show support for Swashy's post. Bet you thought it was Terry Bradshaw. Shows what you know. All kidding aside, It's simply to get the Buc name in there in addition to recognizing your teams history. That Bradshaw guy sure had a habit of turning my TV screen Black and Yellow at playoff time back in the day.

I have a funny feeling your D will leave our boys a lttle bruised up. It's a good thing they have the bye for Game 4 to recover. Any team can beat any team on any given day. We'll see what happens

Here's to a good game , no injuries.

Welcome Bucs fan!! You guys sure are a cordial bunch, aren't ya? You know, ever since the Tony Dungy days, I've kinda had a soft spot for Tampa. Congrats on being 2-0, it's gotta be exciting for you guys, huh? I'm amazed myself the Steelers are 2-0 cause I really am keeping my expectations low. Our O is anemic to put it mildly (ok, they suck right now), but thank God for our D. I don't know how the game will play out on Sunday, but here's to a good game with no injuries and win or lose, your fans have certainly earned my respect. Here's to Sunday and looking to chatting with ya some more and hopefully learn more about your team. :tt:

Hello Steelers fans. Another Bucs fan here.

My thoughts on this week's game...

Pittsburgh's D is top notch... and you guys are certainly gonna put Josh Freeman to the test. We're already without a running game... so you don't have to even worry about that.

Our offense (passing) has been good... and our D is really on point. We have the better team right now. Your offense is in trouble right now with Big Ben out... and thats why I'm glad we're playing against you at this point in time. If your team was complete, I'd have serious doubts about a Tampa victory... but right now I'm feeling pretty confident.

That said, heres to a fun, injury free game for both sides.

Between both offenses and both defenses, this could end 2-0.

well we are getting leftwich back and at this stage of their respective careers i would say josh and byron are about on equal ground.

i call it a wash.

but lets get down to business.... how do you figure the bucs are the better team?

our defense is a superbowl winning unit, with the best safety, the best corps of linebackers, and probably the best DL rotation in the league. aaron smith is probably the leagues most underrated player. theres not a free safety in the league i would trade for ryan clark, and i would gladly keep our cb's over talib and barber.

as for offense, i take mendenhall over any TB back, and our TE is the best all around and most complete TE in the game. i dont think the buc's #1 wr would make our top 3.

just for good measure, id say our kicker and punter are better as well.

so in summation, your starting qb is a little bit better than our back up and thats about it.

oh, and welcome. :wave:

whoa easy there buddy, let's not get ahead of ourselves now. I know you're excited about the bucs being 2-0 and they look like a decent squad.. but i'm sure our linebacking corps alone has more pro bowlers than your entire team has. your offense won't beat us. if you guys win, it will have to be through a defensive score or special teams. with that said, i will agree that without ben we probably won't score on offense unless the D sets us up good. whoever's defense and ST makes more plays will win the game.

hows the bucs rushing D btw? if you guys let mendenhall have a 100 yd game your chances of winning go to nil

Don't want to burst your bubble there buddy, but Vince Young and Matt Ryan are far better quarterbacks than Freeman any day of the week. The Steelers D harassed them to no end the first two games. Freeman is in for a shock because I seriously doubt he has any clue how to read the zone blitz defense that Lebeau is going to throw at him. He is going to be in for a miserable day. Write it down now.

now see, that would almost be funny and some good smack talk except the steelers have only drafted in the top 10 three times since bradshaw was taken #1 overall in 1970.

so what that means is that in the last 40 drafts, the steelers have twice as many lombardi trophies as top 10 picks.

where do people "save" posts?

freemans not bad. i would definitely say the bucs got their franchise guy and shouldnt give up on him. it was a good move to throw him into the fire as opposed to trying to win games with leftwich last year.

the bucs should feel good going into this game. recent steelers history says the team wont even practice against an unexperienced, untested young player.

we have had fits with the likes of 1st or 2nd year players leinart, cutler, clement, gradkowski, whoever was the dickstick who qb'd the browns last year, etc...

its classic lebeau defense. completely shut down the run. put the game in the inexperienced qb's hands, play prevent defense, and dare him to dink and dunk for 40-45 throws while waiting for him to make a mistake.

however this year seems different (especially with ben out, having troy and smith back, and getting burnt with that philosophy in 3 of 5 games last year).

expect lots of pressure. james harrison cannot be stopped (not legally anyways).

Oh boy, if you're going by that logic and are expecting that same team from last year going into Sunday then you will be sadly mistaken and very, very, very dissapointed. You guys lost to Buffalo, who wasn't that far away from being worse than Cleveland, and you also went on your way to a whopping 3 win season. This isn't 2009 now is it ;)

Freeman might have upside and could be a sleeper QB to rise up in his later years, but LeBeau versus a 2nd year QB? I don't think it's even a close comparison. It's actually as big of a mis-match that ever presents itself. Freeman might be able to handle a Cleveland Browns or Carolina Panthers bad-mediocre at best defense's, but all of this talk about the Steelers falling into a trap, we might be talking about a back down to reality game for Tampa Bay.

I'm thankful that we'll be playing 75% of our games with Big Ben and Big D.

Speaking of D...

No way Freeman does anything meaningful against this defense. When reality sets in for you about halfway through the 2nd quarter, you'll see that the kid won't know what to do with what is being thrown at him. He'll probably come out of the game pulling a Vince Young " They did some things that I havenít seen before."

This defense, when healthy, is special. This has taken *years* of building and development. There's nothing special about your offense, or Freeman's ability/talent for that matter. (other than the obvious "he's a pro QB" retort)

I, for one, look forward to your post-game appearance... Or lack there-of.

Exactly. Atlanta was supposedly going to score more than 30 points on us in an "easy win" and Tennessee's Vince Young and Chris Johnson was supposed to be a two headed monster that would send the Steelers into the fetal position on their way to a route. We all know how that turned out.

I'm sure we've ALL watched the Steelers for quite some time now. We've always been a defensive run city and been in the top 5 in defense since I could possibly remember. With that said, THIS is the stingiest I've EVER seen them play thus far and we are going to get punk'd by a 2nd year QB who hasn't even won 10 games yet?

There's a point to where you can only take so much with the dis-respect from people not aware of how we do things. I get that Tampa Bay fans are excited from their fast start, but they will clearly be out-classed by the Steelers team this Sunday, who returns mostly ALL of the same players from their recent decade 2 Super Bowl victories. What does Tampa Bay return?

This could be an intriguing matchup and if we can't get anything going on offense, then I expect the Bucs to be in it for sure, but if we so happen to be clicking on offense just a tad then I don't see how Tampa can keep up talent wise for 4 qrts.

Although that defense has played lights out the first 2 weeks.. How long can it be able to sustain that with their pathetic passing game?

http://buccaneersterritory.com/forums/now-face-pittsburgh-t283-20.html

The whole season baby. The whole season. The Steelers offense pretty much blew in '08 WITH Ben, yet they still won the SB.

Don't underestimate the power of this defense. It is game changing. I know, I know...that may sound lame and cliche and all...but it's fvcking true too. Ask any Steelers fan, and they will tell you, they haven't seen a defense as fierce as this since the '70s. That includes the defense that pretty much led the Steelers to the SB in '08.

They are pissed. They want to tear QB's apart. They are coming after Freeman next.

Ahhh "The defense! The defense! The defense!!!" cry out the Steeler faithful. It's gonna be a hard game for my Bucs to win. No doubt about it. But if we can hold a much more talented Carolina team (albeit with Matt Moore) to 7 points (and even then, they scored because of an all out blitz) without breaking a sweat then I don't imagine you all doing much better, especially with Ben out of the lineup. You just said it yourself, you guys right now are like the Bucs teams of the late 90's... your best offense is your defense. And I mean this literally. Unless one of your boys makes a house call for 6 points, I don't see you all scoring any more than field goals.

I've changed the score up probably close to half a dozen times now but I'm convinced the score will be 9-6 and all we will see is field goals.

I really don't think you understand the kind of nightmare your offense will be going up against. The 90's Bucs D was good and so was their D overall in 2002. Still, this Steelers defense thus far puts them to shame. You guys looked good against Cleveland and looked better against Carolina, but we are a far battle cry from those two teams. We do things WAY differently and Mr. Freeman might find that out all the way to the bench.

Like I said in another post:

Atlanta was supposedly going to score more than 30 points on us in an "easy win" and Tennessee's Vince Young and Chris Johnson was supposed to be a two headed monster that would send the Steelers into the fetal position on their way to a route. We all know how that turned out.

I'm sure we've ALL watched the Steelers for quite some time now. We've always been a defensive run city and been in the top 5 in defense since I could possibly remember. With that said, THIS is the stingiest I've EVER seen them play thus far and we are going to get punk'd by a 2nd year QB who hasn't even won 10 games yet?

There's a point to where you can only take so much with the dis-respect from people not aware of how we do things. I get that Tampa Bay fans are excited from their fast start, but they will clearly be out-classed by the Steelers team this Sunday, who returns mostly ALL of the same players from their recent decade 2 Super Bowl victories. What does Tampa Bay return?

This could be an intriguing matchup and if we can't get anything going on offense, then I expect the Bucs to be in it for sure, but if we so happen to be clicking on offense just a tad then I don't see how Tampa can keep up talent wise for 4 qrts. We will shutdown any kind of running game you have to offer, and I don't see Freeman getting the better of our defense with his arm with the complexity of schemes we'll throw at him.

Welcome to the board.

I too expect a great show. Good to see two defensive teams go head to head.

About that QB statement... As a Steelers fan, once he rips off 10-11 in a row or knocks down half a dozen 4th quarter comeback wins, I would say hold off on comparing the QBs on anything other than their size.

Marino had it. Montana had it. Elway had it. Favre even had it. B Rape has 'it'. Not sure Freeman has it. :tt03:

Except for OT against the Falcons, we haven't scored an offensive TD yet. FG's seem to have worked fine so far. Our D has kept the other teams offense in check pretty damn well. If one of our DB's or LB's goes for 6, you can pretty much call the game at that point.

I've changed the score up probably close to half a dozen times now but I'm convinced the score will be 9-6 and all we will see is field goals.

This is quite possible. Not likely though. I'll admit, the Bucs have a chance at winning this game....they are going to have to be damn patient and stingy on offense though. One mistake could literally cost them the game.

If you want to call Smith, Stewart and Williams more talented than Mendenhall, Ward and Wallace I wouldn't disagree. Carolina's problem is that they rely on those 3 guys exclusively to win almost every game because their defense isn't really worth much of a damn anymore as well.

But even then, 2-2 won't kill you guys and there will be no cause for panic once Ben comes back.

Delhomme went to Cleveland and now they're starting a rookie at QB. And I'm curious as to how many reps he has gotten with the team until now. The talents of Stewart, Smith and Williams are going to be completely wasted this year.

When your defense isn't worth a damn it puts more of a strain on your offense. The Steelers defense is that much better than Carolina's[btw so far this year Williams nor Stewart crack the top 20 in rushing].

PS. This means as a Bucs fan I'm scared. Very very scared. Hopefully the fact that Ben Rapelesburger is out will help us. Heavens knows we'll need it.

steelers offense is a bit hurt w/o ben, holmes, parker, and colon. we will get by.

what will be the bucs gameplan to deal with the steelers defense?

keisel/hampton/smith need 5 guys to block them. hampton and smith are often double teamed.

that leaves timmons, polamalu, woodley, and harrison.

timmons was one on one with chris johnson in coverage. troy will cover anybody. how do you deal with harrison and woodley? you cant double them both. they will get sacks and they will get forced fumbles.

troy will get his interception. our cornerbacks may luck out and pick off a ball or 2 as well.

ryan clark may be our hardest hitter.

when our team is healthy, they are the toughest starting 11 in the league. dont let anyone tell you otherwise (not even ray 'slew us" and the loudmouth ravens or the SB champion chest thumping jets).

Excuse me for crediting better players who happen to be on a far worse team? Part, you should know that the system works both ways. A poor offense also puts that much more strain on the defense. You really think a defense can just rely almost exclusively on a kicker for offensive support all the time? And I'm the fool?

If the Steelers win it won't be pretty. But they don't play for pretty... they play to win. It's why they have 2 rings since 2006.

To be honest I think the best we can hope for is a few field goals and any kind of turn over that turns into points. I can't reasonably expect us to score much more than field goals. Maybe a TD at most. The only thing I can say with confidence is that Freeman is doing his homework in how to read 3-4 defenses and that Mike Williams and Rejus Benn can at least complement each other nicely enough to make a difference when they are double teamed.

13-6 in favor of Steelers is what i'm thinking.


This prediction is banking on a special teams, or, more likely interception turning into a TD as i bet the bucs QB struggles under the pressure of our D and makes some mistakes.

I'm hopin for 4-5 turnovers *smile* in our favor, and i bet our offense plays cautiously to avoid errors and let our D handle this game.


No offense to bucs fans, but i agree with the other steelers fans saying bucs QB doesn't stand much of a chance against our D. Bucs QB is lookin better..thats for sure, but he's also played against....well...weak teams, he might have the confidence now, and i think thats awesome for tampa fans, but we have yet to see him face a decent team this season. Also, bucs rushing sucks...which will in the end hurt your passing game, our D is gonna be all over bucs QB and...well, tampa doesnt have other options or tricks up their sleeves really to offset that.


Only way i see Tampa winning is if we start leftwich(think hes more likely to lean towards interceptions), and for some odd reason we pass aggressively and make mistakes that result in interceptions. Either that, or if some crazy returns happen for Tampa. We're gonna rush alot, and I bet it works for some field goals (less likely to have mistakes than Tampas QB passing hoping for field goals at least in my opinion)


I could be wrong...but after taking out Falcons and Titans (i was hoping for 2-2 without ben and we already got that...) my confidence is up incredibly.

I'm so glad Polu is back...our defense wasn't steelers defense without him IMO

Throw in Big Ben and i think we're goin to playoffs...and i can't wait. :)

Sorry Stainless but I'm not exactly in awe of the fact that your offense against the Titans came almost strictly from your kicker.

Nothing to be sorry about :hatsoff: Fortunately for us, this is the way the Steelers love playing football. Our defense is built around winning tight ball games & our offense alongside Jeff Reed has been put into position by the defense to go out there and put any kinds of points on the board. 3's will be enough to work with if this defense plays the way they are meant to be played. We are just in survival mode on offense & the combination worked thus far against pretty good caliber teams with dangerous weaponry.

If were it not for your kick return for a TD you guys win that game by only a single point.

Give credit where credit is due. Special teams is a big part of a football game and the execution was flawless. We went on the road and got the job done to put ourselves in better position to win regardless of no ingredients to succeed on offense. Remember now, our defense only gave up 3 points to the daunting Vince Young and the unstoppable Chris Johnson and only gave up a T.D in garbage time so only winning by a single point becomes a moot point judging by how things would have been different in circumstance.

Like I said, unless your defense puts up points for your offense, you MIGHT be in trouble.

Which is VERY, very possible. This defense forced 7 turnovers last week and we are tied in the league with most interceptions, Polamalu having 2 in 2 games. The percentages are highly favorable for the Steelers to score on defense this week. Still, regardless, even though we mostly have been losing the field position battle, this defense will give us some room to work with if we ever decide to break out on offense anytime soon. Remember, we pretty much were put in position down to our 4th string QB so we went from battling, to surviving and taking care of the football. We have a whole week to gameplan around the abilities of Batch OR Leftwhich and if it would be any week to crack the endzone, this will be it.


Do you really expect the defense to bail you out every game? It works for a while like it is now but then it eventually comes back to haunt you like it did my Bucs so many times in the Dungy years.

Not necc. I don't expect it to carry us for an entire 16 game season because we know it's temporary until Ben comes back, but the majority of the time, if the Steelers play to their full potential, more times than not defense is our best offenses. The Steelers have been winning this way for years and this city has always been built around dominating defense, and the Steelers sure do play defense a little differently than most teams. As bad as our offense looks, we are simply winning with 3rd-4th string quarterbacks and not having the tools to call a solid or completed game plan. We are limited, but yet, somehow still manage to win the time of possession battle. That's impressive and if we can keep that up, it'll be tough for the Bucs to reach even the redzone.

All great points. My Bucs aren't ready for the big time yet but the improved defense has me on high hopes. Maybe we do or maybe we don't win, its gonna be a slug fest on Sunday. But like I said, you all don't play to win pretty, you just play to win. 4-0 wouldn't be impossible, especially with how well the defense is playing. I DO expect Freeman to be hit several times and that he will have to make his decision before he even snaps the ball. I think Rejus Benn is gonna have a big day because he is perfect for dump passes and hauling defenders an extra 3-5 yards.

And yes... you have indeed noticed a pattern as to how I'm not mentioning the run game at all. I don't trust Cadillac Williams against you guys, I just don't think he can run hard enough or if he can take the beating. I don't want to see him get hurt. And in all honesty I think we will be seeing the debut of LeGarrett Blount on Sunday but I'm not sure of how ready he is or how many reps he has had with the team. He is big guy and I think if anyone can stand up to the physicality of your defense, it would most surely be him. He has 40 lbs on Chris Johnson and maybe... just MAYBE that will make the difference. I haven't been able to see all the highlights of you stopping him (thank you nfl.com for not being able to download the video!) but I'm sure as soon as Johnson got free, your DBs/LBs dropped him like a sack of rocks. Coach Morris hasn't let on (or maybe I haven't heard) to playing Blount, but one surely has to believe that we are getting him ready. The only answer to a defense like yours would be a guy like Jerome Bettis. And Blount is probably the closest thing we will ever get to him since Alstott is gone.

Tampa Bay runs more of a game manageable offense with Freeman and pretty much expects him to not lose the game first than anything else. He hasn't completed more than 17 balls and hasn't even individually thrown for 200 yards in the first 2 weeks of the season yet. Tampa Bay won't be doing any kinds of damage if they are going to take that approach with Freeman and that offense to only ask him to complete 12 balls for 150+ yards. That's a very vanilla run offense and you guys certainly are in all kinds of matchup problems against this Steelers team.

Cleveland barely has anything to be scared about and Caroline is in as big of a wreck than any team out there right now. Even Ronde Barber said the Panthers didn't offer a threat so with Tampa cruising along and playing not to lose won't work on our style of blitzing schemes and defense. Freeman is going to have to make quick reads and stand in there. LeBeau will certainly turn up the heat, esp on a young QB who more than likely won't know what he's looking at.

Now that the Steelers know what they have in a Leftwhich or Batch, we now can call some plays downfield we didn't plan on having in the playbook with Dixon. Batch looked good last week and made some pin-point throws. Things can be opened up. I like our chances from any matchup standpoint but anything could happen. Traveling to Tampa is no laughing matter and we're aware of it.

Well of course, as should you be about your team. I gave major kudos the first couple of weeks and even had the Falcons taking it to us. Judging our team 2 weeks later and watching this defense just rip teams apart, I'm having a very hard time giving the Tampa offense any benefit of the doubt. I really do think that it will be difficult for a young QB like Freeman to make it even to the redzone with the complexity of the schemes and blitzes he'll be seeing.

I saw the Panthers wiff on Freeman numerous times and they looked so incredibly slow in the middle of the field. No way the Steelers let that happen. We are gang tacklers at our best and swarm like fire flies.

I say hang in there. Tampa is still in a rebuilding process and seems to have landed their future franchise quarterback for future reference.

Have patience and allow Morris to have a couple more drafts to build around him and also build the interior defensive fronts.

That's what's the problem with many GM's and owners today. They simply want to win NOW when they simply cannot and then become impatient with their head coach and fire him, setting the team back in stability worse than it was. You guys will be alright.

i think if mangini starts out like he did last year ( 1-7, 2-8) ... he'll be shit canned during the season. i think fox needs to be over .500 , and one of his qb's better show some serious potential and progress through out the season , or he could be toast.
i think 8-8 might buy raheem another year. owners wanna see progress and improvement. an 8-8 record and a much improved josh freeman should be enough to hang a hat on for another year.

Like I said on our board. I don't care about our record. We could be 10-6, squeak into a first round blowout and I'd not care. We're not a contender, yet.

If we end up with JUST two wins, I'm happy if the players and youth are progressing. Thus far, they've done well, better than expected by most assessments.

I'm stoked, but I'm also a realist. We played the Browns and the Panthers. We've not played a team like the Steelers, yet.

Another Tampa fan here greetings to the Steeler fans! Born in Ohio grew up a Bengals fan (I know I know) but escaped to Florida in 85' and became a Bucs fan after Culverhouse.

Looks to be a good game next Sunday...may it be injury free.


Good luck to ya.

That is definitely the best greeting I have heard in years from an opposing team's fan. May it be injury free! Let's hope so!

I predicted a 3-1 start actually. I have lived in Florida all of my life and for me there is nothing better than your team coming in and shutting up locals, but Tampa fans are good fans and few of them get in your face about their team. Not like those damn UF fans! God I wish people had enough dignity so they wouldn't jump the nearest band wagon and claim die hard fans for life! Take that Arizona! LOL:rofl:

easy with the facts their bud.

the bucs havent seen a qb with this much promise since trent dilfer and shaun king.

Who are they?

Hahaha! Truth be told I think the Bucs are a pretty good team this year... as far as the NFC goes! C'mon now, Do you Bucs fans really think starting 2-0 after a 3-13 season means all your problems are miraculously fixed? I'm a realist, Ipso Facto, The Steelers have an incredible defense that wins games on their own, however the offense without Ben is a hinderance to the defense at best. The Bucs suffer from an unpredictable offense and they play a defense that capitalizes on impatience and little more. I'm going to be completely unbiased with my prediction here. Steelers D does what they have done in the last 2 games and Rashard Mendenhall shows up to play: Steelers 24-6. If neither of these happen I would still have to say Steelers 13-10. Sorry, I just can't see a loss to the Bucs this year.

Really? That's your argument? You were 'here' first? Are you 14?? So what? I never came after you. You're a Bucs' fan, we're supposed to be talking smack against the Steelers... You missed that part and went after me... How'd that work out for you dumbass?

Yeah, once again... you're shown to be an idiot. If you're that set on riding my jock, let me know and I'll shave for you. You've got the routine down pat.

Also, I'd love to see the meltdown you're talking about. 2/2? I'm melting down? Actually, dude, I'm exposing you. You're talking about an opponent's board from last week on a new opponent's board because you can't talk about it on OUR board. Why? because you can't play nice with the other children and you had to have time out...

You're right, because shitty photoshops and smack about Roethlisberger's charges haven't been done to death. Steelers are a good team, I(as well as you I'm sure) hope we can win, but don't think that we will.

Ironically enough the post I first "went after you" on you were talking smack about Raheem(who hadn't been mentioned prior).. Don't let logic get you down. You tried your hardest. :hatsoff:

Yeah, once again... you're shown to be an idiot. If you're that set on riding my jock, let me know and I'll shave for you. You've got the routine down pat.

How is it working out for me? I'd say not so well. Now I've got an unnamed poster trying to arrange a meeting with me like some sort of deranged pervert.. Don't let the user name fool you I'm into chicks.

Also, I'd love to see the meltdown you're talking about.

Anyone could see it.. The part where they had you down in the count and your only defense was to keep mentioning "i'm a mod on the Bucs board".. When that's your only reply you know you're full of fail.. Then you completely jumped off the diving board.. I think your words were "**** off i'm done".

They're real real bad over there(we both agree I'm sure), but that just makes you real real real bad.

Sit in the corner and STFU. I'm tired of making you my son.... But I'll see you next week, pumpkin.

Oh.. they know all about him. He's more like a little boys wee-wee. I did some research and BFT is dead on with this one. He's been suspended/banned multiple times because he's a big-mouthed freakin' child whose Daddy never taught him any manners. He talks junk and hides behind his keyboard like a pansy-cakes. And you know what they say about people always bragging about their "hetero".... prolly fruitier than fruit cake.

He also didn't read the mantra for this forum.... it says "mature".

"A Man's Part"... IE: Little pee-pee.

Understand this: When you want to follow people from board to board because you're banned from MY board... with no other motivation than to call out another fan, yes - you don't need to be on MY board.

You went from smack to stupidity.

You were called out. You were revealed.



Let's review: You know all of this, but it's great background for the rest:

You were given an offer for a free lesson in martial arts, I even said I'd make the trip & buy you a beer afterwards. I'm a helluva guy! You also know I've been on the Bucs board for over 8 years and have met F2F literally over 30+ people. I go to Tampa all the time, I've been to training camp for years in a row and have always said when/where I'd be there and I was there. I've always said when/where I'd be at games, and I was there. Hell, I bought tickets for several posters from the board last year just to see the throwback game with me, my son and my brother. I've posted pics, I've been to tailgates, and I've been open about it. Funny though... after having sent over 50+ people to their own meltdown, I've never, once, had ANYONE come up to me wanting to get in my face. Hell, I could probably use a good ass kicking. But you... I think you need lessons. I'll help you find your balls (don't make a gay reference, you'll look stupid). Free lesson. My treat. As the disclaimer says, martial arts is a dangerous sport, and people can & do get hurt. While naturally, I'd not want that to happen, and I'd take all precaution, I do want that out there.

You can play it off, you can do whatever the hell you want... but you and I know it's real. The offer is real, you don't even have to thank me. I'd enjoy it.

I've always been the exact same caustic poster that I was on day one. I toned down from being one of the 'heavyweights' who gunned for people when the new board asked me to moderate. Call me out. I welcome it.

You've been suspended more than most on the new board, and we aren't nearly as strict as the old board. You just don't know how to play nicely with others... I call it poor upbringing..

You don't have guts, you have gimmicks.

But understand this... when you literally start following people from board to board (when you signed up for that board isn't relevant, what you post is... get it yet?) for no other reason than to continue sour grapes and bitch, piss and moan...... then you cross a line and become Glenn Close-scary. You aren't invited back to MY board. There are 31 other teams in the NFL, be the festering boil to one of their boards.

Not on mine.


Edit: By the way... there are 5 mods on the Bucs board. I'm one of 5, I'm only 20% of the voice. Additionally, we have our own forum and we debate/discuss any member suspension that is questionable, and we vote to overturn if need be. Try your luck.

But, I'll see you in 2 weeks at one of these:

You're a small part of my posting on this board don't flatter yourself. Here to read up on what to expect from the Steelers(I saw the VY gif) and talk Pens.

Welcome to the classy Bucs fans..


Here you are on your second post welcoming Bucs fans.. Now tell me, why someone who would feel tenured enough to welcome new posters[and joined after me] would be doing so in their second post..

Something is rotten there...Could this perhaps not be the first username for you?

.. or the more likely thing is that you're a different tool, from our board... who decided to pose as a steelers fan for a week... and is also hiding behind another name without revealing who they really are...

I mean hey, not a mighty stretch to make since the first half of your posts were defending the Bucs, and 4 of the last 5 have been following me around..

..and of course this one

www.tbaybucs.com

For those who wish to check it out.

pimping our board before it'd even been mentioned?

Now tell me, why are you hiding behind this charade? Who are you really? and why are you so afraid to let people know?

Now, since we've revealed that you lack intelligence.. I'll break this down for you..

Stranger Danger----------> A Mans Part[I just liked the name better.. It works]

Ken Trentadue as a means to contact TBBB Admin.. You know what.. It seems he misses me as he's unbanned my Ken Trentadue account.. Why would he do that? Perhaps because he realized I'm on to something..

So in summary,

Whether you're a Steelers board retread, TBBB Poser, or [unlikely] a new poster.. You've hitched yourself to the wrong wagon.. Enjoy having BFT lead you off a cliff.
