Trolling The Nation For Bucs @ Cowboys: "Elliott is a freaking beast. Unreal."

New, comments

Read what fans of other teams had to say as they were watching the Cowboys beat the Buccaneers on Sunday night.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

As we've done repeatedly in the past, today we're going to look at what fans of other NFL teams had to say while they were watching the Cowboys beat the Bucs on Sunday Night Football.

Unfortunately, despite playing in the prestigious SNF slot, overall interest in the game was fairly low. The comments from other SB Nation blogs weren't as plentiful as usual, likely owing to the time of the season (people doing holiday things), and teams already out of contention losing fan interest. All of which goes to explain why the total number of fan comments for last night's game is a little lower than it has been in similar posts in the past.

All fan comments taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites as indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

First Quarter
Texans lmao. All the crap said about Dak this past week because they lost only their 2nd game of the year. People wish he would fail but it’s not going to happen. He’s legit.

KICKOFF
Bucs Cowboys O-line doing some grading so far.

Bucs Bucs haven't played against a lot of run-heavy offenses, have they? This might get bad.
Posted by witty on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:33 PM
Bucs Dak has it so easy. They don’t make things difficult for him at all. Smart play calling.
Posted by killa3312 on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:35 PM
Bucs We take the weirdest timeouts.
Posted by SpeterMan3 on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:38 PM
(9:51) D.Bailey 56 yard field goal is No Good
Bucs That drive was looking pretty bad for us. And they got nothing and we have pretty good field position.
Posted by Brooklyn Buc on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:39 PM
Bucs He missed it!
Posted by Crandallion on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:39 PM
Bucs Not a bad start for the biggest game we've played in a half generation or so.
Posted by DraftPhantom on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:43 PM
Bucs Yeah that was pass interference. Massive contact. It was like the corner was trying to propose to Evans.
Posted by witty on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:43 PM
Bucs Oh no, the red zone.......
Posted by witty on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:44 PM
(5:58) Tampa field goal is GOOD
Cowboys 0 - Bucs 3
Bucs Hey, we didn't trade a miss for a miss!
Posted by SpeterMan3 on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:47 PM
Bucs We NEVER score TD's
Posted by Dirtdan on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:50 PM
Redskins I just can't root for Dallas. Not natural. Takes too much concentration. Like writing or throwing left handed
Posted by Boardname5533 on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:50 PM
Bucs Young Elliott is making plays.
Posted by Marlon D on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:52 PM
Bucs Beasley soo wide open….. VH3 got abused.
Posted by qkincol on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:53 PM
Bucs Dallas' Oline is definitely giving our Dline fits right now.
Posted by Crandallion on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:56 PM
Bucs They're going to score some points in this game. We better start getting some touchdowns and try to get them to ease up on their running game.
Posted by Brooklyn Buc on Dec 18, 2016 | 8:59 PM

Second Quarter
(14:59) D.Bailey 27 yard field goal is GOOD.
Cowboys 3 - Bucs 3
(14:56) J.Winston sacked at TB 18 (T.McClain). FUMBLES, RECOVERED by M.Collins at TB 14
Bucs UGH!
Posted by DraftPhantom on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:05 PM
Bucs And we are doomed thanks to that fumble.
Posted by DaddyBuc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:05 PM
Bucs Sooner or later we gotta get better managing timeouts
Posted by DraftPhantom on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:08 PM
(12:38) E.Elliott left tackle for 2 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Cowboys 10 - Bucs 3
Broncos God, please let the Cowboys lose, give us something.
Posted by Baghdad on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:09 PM
Bucs Sorry, but I see a loss here … people may say it’s too early, but I don’t see a victory tonight.
Posted by OJ Simpson on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:09 PM
Bucs I am dejected.
Posted by BucsFanz on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:10 PM
Bucs I wouldn’t even pass the ball if I was Dallas. Just run it at 4-7 yards a pop.
Posted by DaddyBuc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:10 PM
Bucs Getting penalized for the salvation army kettle huh?
Posted by Brooklyn Buc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:11 PM
Bucs They are moving the ball with almost no resistance. If they keep that up and our offense plays like it has the last couple of weeks this game could get out of hand.
Posted by DaddyBuc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:12 PM
Bucs And the scattershot Winston is back tonight.
Posted by DaddyBuc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:15 PM
(11:45) Tampa PUNTS
Browns Cowboys DC is impressive, he is doing a lot with very little.
Posted by MartinMM on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:16 PM
Bucs That tears it I'm going to bed.
Posted by witty on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:16 PM
Jets Seeing Sanchez just makes me sad thinking of everything the poor guy has gone through these last few weeks.
Posted by John B on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:20 PM
Bucs Honestly they shouldn't be throwing the ball at all.
Posted by Brooklyn Buc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:21 PM
Bucs Know it's hard because Dallas has the best OL in the NFL right now, but we need some pressure on Dak.
Posted by thedudeofdudes on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:21 PM
Bucs Lavonte David getting worked by Witten so far this game.
Posted by qkincol on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:23 PM
Bucs This whole team is getting worked.
Posted by Crandallion on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:24 PM
Browns Witten having himself a game. Always been one of my favorite players on the Cowboys.
Posted by Crawford_T on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:24 PM
(6:24) (Shotgun) D.Prescott up the middle for 2 yards, TOUCHDOWN
Cowboys 17 - Bucs 3
Bucs Stupid!! We always seem to get embarrassed on a national stage. Here’s to never seeing another Sunday night game for 8 plus years again.
Posted by TheGambino on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:25 PM
Eagles Anyone else could throw up at the Cowboys' luck this year? Franchise QB-RB in one draft. OL to support them for years to come.
Posted by OrlandoBird on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:27 PM
Bucs We have no answer for them on defense right now.
Posted by DaddyBuc on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:30 PM
(3:02) PENALTY on TB-J.Winston, Unnecessary Roughness, 15 yards
Bucs Winston embarrassing us on national television smh...
Posted by RaysTheRedFlags on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:35 PM
Bucs Really Winston?
Posted by thedudeofdudes on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:35 PM
Browns That was weird. Jameis is weird.
Posted by Legoman0721 on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:36 PM
Bucs How is that unnecessary roughness? It’s just a simple bump of the head. Still don’t think Jameis needed to do that though.
Posted by ajk777 on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:37 PM
Bucs Oh Jameis.. That’s the type of stuff that losing teams do. Have to be smarter. Basically ruined our chance of a TD.
Posted by DT25 on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:37 PM
(1:55) Tampa field goal is GOOD
Cowboys 17 - Bucs 6
Bucs Our front 4 just won't get there by themselves.
Posted by tim_is_land95 on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:44 PM
Bucs It's amazing how Prescott can just complete any pass he wants.
Posted by 3MinuteStorms on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:45 PM
Bucs Why aren’t we dialing up any pressure against Dak?
Posted by rjblitz02 on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:46 PM
Bucs We are. That Dallas O line is picking it up. Their O line is probably the best in the NFL. It’s just our pressure isn’t getting home.
Posted by SirFatNuts on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:47 PM
Bucs Man...They just had to get that Viagra commercial in.
Posted by TheGambino on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:48 PM
(0:13) (Field Goal formation) D.Bailey 52 yard field goal is No Good
Bucs No Good.

Posted by qkincol on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:49 PM
Bucs Well another penalty saved us there.
Posted by thedudeofdudes on Dec 18, 2016 | 9:49 PM
Bucs Lol they were making fun of Aguayo on their blog. Of course these are distances that we wouldn’t even trot Aguayo on the field for though.

Posted by dondookie98 on Dec 18, 2016 | 10:31 PM

Bucs A turnover! Finally!
Posted by thedudeofdudes on Dec 18, 2016 | 10:57 PM
(7:11) Tampa PUNTS
Giants Witten fumbles it away, then they punt it back. Giving Witten a chance to make it right can go very badly.
Posted by marcL on Dec 18, 2016 | 11:05 PM
Browns Elliott is the best closer in football.
Posted by darden73 on Dec 18, 2016 | 11:08 PM
Browns Zeke’s patience and vision is extraordinary.
Posted by l-towndawg on Dec 18, 2016 | 11:08 PM
Browns Oh, and blocking. He blocks better than any TE in the league.
Posted by l-towndawg on Dec 18, 2016 | 11:08 PM
(3:03) D.Bailey 33 yard field goal is GOOD
Cowboys 26 - Bucs 20

Bucs It is time for the Clutch Jameis to please stand up.
Posted by Crandallion on Dec 18, 2016 | 11:10 PM
