Introducing The Buccaneers’ New Helmet

February 20th, 2014

Joe is far more interested in who will wear the fancy new helmets rolled out by the Buccaneers today than the helmets themselves. Sorry, Joe’s not passionate about gear.

But here’s the long-awaited new look for the Bucs, as rolled out on NFL Network. Oh, the drama.

As you can see, the Bucs tweaked their logo, too. It’s all good for Joe as long as the Bucs keep their colors and uniforms.

    This is ugly as hell.

  2. Kryq Says:

    Is that black ? or is it a darker pewter?

  3. Patrick in VA Says:

    It’s not awful. Didn’t need to happen though. I agree, more excited to see who will be wearing it.

  4. Andrew 1 Says:

    ah hell yea! I like it.

  5. Patrick Says:

    Is the logo seriously that freakin huge on the helmet?

  6. pablo Says:

    Pablo likes the old helmet

  7. buccaneer863 Says:

    Yall complain about every damn thing. You don’t have to wear it

  8. Georgie82 Says:

    Thanks, Joe, b/c NFL Network are sure as hell dragging this logo thing out!

  9. Couch Fan Says:

    Im hearing new uniforms will be released March 5th. A color change apparently.

  10. Jeagan1999 Says:

    It’ll grow on me!

  11. Sapp, STFU Says:

    Yawn. Maybe our plays will be as big as our logo

  12. umm Says:

    no sir i dont like it…

  13. Patrick in VA Says:

    Not sure that going with black and chrome is a great idea when our guys are playing in Tampa heat. I feel like we’ve been doing this long enough that something like that shouldn’t need to be pointed out

  14. RastaMon Says:

    If that is the Skull/Flag logo it is a laughable characture….

  15. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:


  16. Patrick Says:

    So now we have a ghetto looking helmet

  17. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Looks freakin’ terrible!! All 3 of the NFL teams in Florida changed their logos for the worse. The Dolphins made their cool looking dolphin look like a dumb whale, and both the Jags and Bucs have logos similar to their previous ones only they look like they were drawn in a Kindergarten class!! Rather have Bucco Bruce back!

  18. Patrick in VA Says:

    Take it back. Now that I’ve seen the actual helmet, I think it looks alright. Plus, it’s not really black so that’s good

  19. Fishfries Says:


  20. Couch Fan Says:

    The helmet looks much better on TV than it does in the Pics. I like it a lot.

  21. (Buc) Mike Says:

    New unis march 5th

  22. Destinjohnny Says:

    Flags to big

  23. James Pearls Says:

    logo is a little big, and worried the flags are a bit close on the front-view.

    Nonetheless, pretty happy. logos and font look way cleaner, and the grill is dope.

    congrats bucs

  24. Bangkok Buc Says:

    I like it!!!!

  25. Chris Says:

    I dig it. Bucs needed to get some excitement back in Tampa. Fans and player motivation. Good start.

  26. bwf921 Says:

    Uh ok. I need more photos.

  27. Cbell96825 Says:

    These helmets are sick 2 thumbs up

    Go Bucs

  28. snook Says:

    It’s not black. Picture is wrong. It’s now actually pewter and not sparkly brown.

  29. Josh P Says:

    Aweful!!!!! the logo is to damn big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and with this new loge we still aren’t going to be able to wear our throwbacks..

  30. Mort Says:

    I like it. Looks way better on NFLN than this poorly lit press photo. Can’t wait for the new uniforms on the fifth. The new pirate ship logo looks great.

    The new font for the buccaneers text logo absolutely sucks though and takes away a lot of the personality.

  31. Burg Says:

    ugly, but Bortles will make it look good…

  32. stratobuc Says:

    Completely disproportional and goofy as hell. 100% fail.

  33. cap Says:

    The helmet looks more black in this picture than on the NFL network. Either way go Bucs!

  34. Biggun Says:

    It’s cool I was worried they were going to drop the skull to be PC possibly (I’m sure it offends someone) but they didn’t and I’m cool… but rally they didn’t need too.

  35. reco simmons Says:

    I love it! Now I cant wait to see the new uniforms

  36. P'cola Buc Says:

    Gotta tell you, not a fan of the new helmet. I both saddened and disappointed.
    Previous helmet farrrrr more attractive. Will take a lot to get used to.

  37. Patrick Says:

    Hey it could be worse, at least we don’t have the Marlins uniforms!

  38. mike#0#1bucfan Says:

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. kevin Says:

    Has black strips on top going front to back they look good on tv horrible picture

  40. NewBucs Says:

    LOVE the new helmet and cant wait for the new uniform!!!!! The chrome grill is SICK!!!!

  41. Cbell96825 Says:

    Looks much better then this pic it was awesome on nfl network not as dark as this pic joes got up

  42. Josh P Says:

    i like the new Pirate ship and the new skull face but the helmet is the aweful…

  43. RealityCheck Says:

    OMG HOW UGLY..WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!?!?!?! Just kidding…I agree, who cares? It looks fine. Continue on with the complaints…tell us how much better your ideas would be.

  44. Buc1987 Says:

    It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. 6-10 here we come!

  45. RastaMon Says:

    is this the remake of Rachel Watson….thud…underwhelmed….DESPERATE…G’Boyz…..

  46. williethewonder Says:

    I think the darker pewter looks much cooler than that weak, almost beige-like background color from before. But that way oversized logo looks like it was drawn by a kindergartener. I mean, can it be any bigger?

  47. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Just hope Warren Sapp doesn’t pawn the helmet off. Only thing I like about it is the chrome face mask. Logo was dumbed down and blown up too big on the helmet.

  48. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I heard that a band of pirates are picketing the stadium right now and plan on Marching to Washington DC to complain.

  49. LJS4th Says:

    Man did you see that chrome face mask??? Now we need some new uniforms to go with it, maybe some chrome spinners on the cleats and we will be blinged out!!!!

  50. Andrew 1 Says:

    so the helmet is not as dark as that? dang, I like that color.

  51. PGW Says:

    I love this bigger tougher look. And the new letter style is awesome too. Good Job Bucs!

  52. Buc1987 Says:

    Keep the color, make the logo 25% smaller and then it would look sweet.

  53. P'cola Buc Says:

    Didn’t think I could ever have such a terrible reaction to a helmet. Maybe it will look better when a buccaneer player wears……but beware… Uniform change comes March 3rd.

  54. Matt Says:

    Per “full uniform re-design” will be released march 5th..

  55. Mord Says:

    What is that black vertical line on the left edge of the flag?

    Agree it looks kinda poorly proportioned

  56. Mumbles Says:

    I wanted a parrot and peg legs and a return to the old rules. Where pirates pillage and plunder and Dashon Goldson can stay on the field! Yarrrg!

  57. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Its not a line, its a vent through the helmet. Helmet is fine, its that terrible logo that does it for me. Went to the Bucs official site and it looks even worse without being on the helmet. Look at the old one nec t to the new one. Looks like a 5 year old drew it.

  58. Martinii Says:

    Are they safer?

  59. WalkdaPlank Says:

    *next to

  60. Patrick Says:

    I wish our owners would leave things alone for once…….this is just another typical rinky dink Glazer move

  61. BucPuck Says:

    I am on the fence with the logo. Will wait to see the uniform. I do like the color of the helmet and grill.

  62. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I like the helmet a lot. Got a feeling everyone else will once they get used to it. I don’t really like the logo itself, and definitely don’t like the font (I paid $50 for that damn Totally Gothic font, just to irritate my friends and employees that aren’t Bucs fans). At the end of the day, who gives a sh!t? They could do whatever they want to the logo and I’d still wear it. It’s really not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.

  63. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Why did even change to begin with!?! I dont like it. The logo is so bland. Theres no definition in the flag. And the flag looks like my son drew it!

  64. ChrisB Says:

    What…the…fugly is that?! Seems like they should’ve let those of us who actually purchase the tickets and fan gear have some sort of vote…this is borderline embarrassing…

  65. danny Says:

    meh. *shrug*

  66. P'cola Buc Says:

    I’m not so sure Sapp is sold on it either. Even if he “said” he likes it. Sapp is not a monotone kinda guy. If he truly liked it he would have been far more animated. McCoy seemed to have liked it less. What else are they gonna say….what a terrible mistake, on national television?

  67. Tim Says:

    Glad to see it is not a major overhaul.
    I want the overhaul to come with players, game planning, expectations, and wins.

  68. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Only team in FLA to get a new look right were the Rays. The Marlins, Dolphins, Jags, Bucs, and Lightning all failed though the Lightning wasn’t too bad. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Now all we can hope for is that the new unis aren’t as cartoonish.

  69. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @P’cola Buc,

    Were you watching the same show as me? Geez, what more did you want them to do, start dry humping it???? Sapp went on and on and on, as did McCoy. I think you are drawing conclusions that you want.

  70. bucbucbuc Says:

    I like the big logo on the helmet, but not a fan of the slight tweaks to the actual logo. I didn’t think the old logo was too “cartoony” as some claim, and the old skull had a little more character to it.

  71. Supercereal Says:

    This group lovesssssss to complain.

  72. Andrew 1 Says:

    The lightning look like the maple leafs.

  73. BucsQcCity Says:

    I’ll judge when matched by the uniform but not against it.

    Improved font for sure

  74. P'cola Buc Says:

    Yes I will replay it. It not the words they stated….for Warren Sapp that was not animated…….in that position on national television no negative response would be acceptable…….let the fans here decide.

  75. rawr Says:

    I kind of like it.

  76. Patrick Says:

    There’s a difference between complaining and having an opinion idiots.

  77. Jerry Says:

    Yawn. Just get the right guys wearing the new helmets. But really don’t think the Saints, Dixie Chicks or Black Cats will be intimidated by the new look until their butts are getting kicked.

  78. P'cola Buc Says:

    I have been positive on every post here. Far more than most. About Lovie, the glazers etc………my disappointment on this one is rare…..but honestly felt.

  79. Winston Says:

    Disgusting. Embarrassing. Really ugly.

  80. Buc_The_World Says:

    Chrome face masks in a state full of sunshine…hmmmmmmmm

  81. Kaput Says:

    Like the ship better.

  82. kevin Says:

    It also looks less brown than the old ones more of a metalic grey. Black vent slits at the top look mean. Chrome grill is sharp. Logo looks like shit like it always did just bigger

  83. Niko Says:

    History of Bucs Unis.
    77 from orange numbers on away tops in 76 to red numerals w orange trim. 91 bucs increased size of Bucco Bruce on helmet slightly.
    92 bucs went to Orange Pants and white tops as all around uniform unless road team chose white top for their home. 97 was birth of pewter and 2014 is new deal!

  84. WalkdaPlank Says:

    They could put a Somalian Pirate on the helmet if they want, just as long as they win. But DAMN, if your gonna change a good logo make the new one an upgrade not a downgrade. Anyway I think im done ranting over the dumb thing lol.

  85. Mumbles Says:

    I like it! It says new attitude. We’re bigger and better! And we’re going to be in your face!

    Those who don’t like it only shows why the Glazers never asked your opinion and didn’t give you a vote. Bam!

  86. Mark Says:

    Hideous, tacky, gaudy!!!

  87. bill stepp Says:

    I love it it’s absolutely awesome!!!!!

  88. JoeMan(ziel)CrushFan Says:

    I like the change, the new helmets look great to me and I would have been okay with more change if it was the right change. Best helmet in the league. I don’t know why people are so opposed to it. I hate Oregon in CFB but would love to see that type of imagination with my teams.

  89. Kinupe Says:

    New uni’s coming march 5th

  90. P'cola Buc Says:


    No we don’t like it cuz……We just don’t like it!

  91. TpaBayFlyFisher Says:

    Nice! We have copied the Falcons!

  92. #1Bucsfan Says:

    Love the new logo. The crome grill. I was glad they stuck with the battle flag. Stay true.

  93. deathaneers Says:

    I love it! Hate the new font! I was worried they were going to make the helmet white.
    Just start winning games and the hate will all go away.

  94. Patrick Says:

    Totally unnecessary re-design.

  95. P'cola Buc Says:

    Patrick…..perhaps the Bucs got a great deal on the helmet.

  96. Patrick Says:

    I mean……if you’re going to just change the logo up that’s one thing, but to make it ridiculously large like that just ruins it. The uniform was just fine the way it was.

    Get your fireball ready. Just in case the uniforms are a bust! 🙂

  97. RealityCheck Says:

    Tell us more of your “opinions” Patrick…how many negative “opinions” do you feel that you need to express? We get it, you don’t like it. Move on man it’s gonna be OK!

  98. RastaMon Says:

    Patrick Says:
    February 20th, 2014 at 10:40 pm
    Totally unnecessary re-design.

  99. Bryan Says:

    Horrible horrible horrible. You wasted my time to wait for that. If your going to change them, be like Seattle and do something different. Bucs marketing guy needs to go. Not smart.

  100. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Buccs are supposedly unveiling new uniforms march 5th, Joe.

  101. Patrick Says:

    Sorry, *re-design* wasn’t the right word. As the logo is still pretty much the same. I was talkin’ about the helmet in general.

  102. dee Says:

    Love it the skull looks mean.

  103. Jim Porson Says:

    Although I am glad the logo did not change much basically its just a new chrome face mask!

  104. Mumbles Says:


    That’s all good. Now see if you can get it changed, then report back to us. I put a call in to the Glazers and they say they never heard of you.

  105. LovieTheBucS Says:

    Love to come here so I can read the haters. Always negative. Love the redesign. Cant wait to see the uniforms. Excited for the draft. Long live Lovie!

  106. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Lol looks like the Glazer twins had one too many of those craft beers Joe hates and tried to draw the old logo and that’s what it looks like. Must be trying to compensate for something with that huge flag. 😉

  107. Jake S. Says:

    The only thing I would change is the flag size.
    On a side note I know Sapp has lost some weight but wow McCoy looks giant standing next to him.

  108. P'cola Buc Says:

    Change it or not….not the point….. Just don’t like it. The logo is disproportional to the rest….just an opinion…. No better or worse than yours mumbles. 🙂 One can have an opinion without knowing the Glazers.

  109. Theodore Says:

    Ah, man, they got rid of Bucco Bruce!

  110. bucrightoff Says:

    It looks very cartoonish. Totally unnecessary of course but gotta sell more jerseys and hats and such.

  111. @caEric Says:

    build a bridge and get over it…….what’s done is done……get on board and stop bitchin………Go Bucs!!!
    Good to see McCoy and Sapp together, keep an eye on young grass hopper

  112. mitsurugi Says:

    I thought the old logo was too small on the helmet. This one is too big, but I will get used to it. The skull is okay. Still cartoonist. The helmet looks much better in real view.

  113. Alex Houpt Says:

    as a 19 year old, the young population is loving the new design. we love flash and looking dope. get excited cause a new fan base is arising!

  114. Obvious Solution Says:

    It looks great. Can’t wait to see it live from the 45 yard line on Sundays.

  115. ecspider33 Says:

    I like the new helmet I would never complain I am a true
    buccaneer fan

  116. SANTIAGO Says:

    We’ll all get use to it. I don’t think it was necessary to begin with. Since they decided to do this, i was kind of hoping for something completely diffrent, or maybe the creamsickle color against a black background. IMO it’s not really a new logo it was just tweeked a little. But it dosen’t matter. If fans had to choose between the sharpest Eye Candy Logo with a loosing record, and an Ugly Logo with a winning record, The ugly logo will always sell more jerseys.
    GO BUCS!!!!

  117. P'cola Buc Says:

    Don’t worry obvious solution you can’t miss that logo from the parking lot….just kidding….getting used to it (kinda, sorta).

  118. Mumbles Says:

    C’mon P,

    Just having fun with you. I respect your opinion. Everybody should be having fun with it because it’s not going to change soon. They may end up reducing the size of the flag because that’s the change that stands out.

    Change always causes a few hiccups but we eventually adjust and go along. Relax and say something crazy like the rest of the posters here tonight and have a little fun. This is no big deal!

    Remember! When the battle starts, we’re in the same foxhole!

  119. Snook Says:

    Terrible press release photo by the Bucs. Our helmet isn’t black according to what McCoy and Sapp showed:

    And how can anyone not like the new logo? Its way better than the old one.

    WAAAAAY better than the old skull with the bad shading and missing bottom jaw teeth.

    Give me a break. Enhanced logo is a HIT.

  120. Mr. Patrick Says:

    I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. I think it will probably grow on me. I am however a little nervous about the new uniforms though. Fingers crossed

  121. DallasBuc Says:

    Better score some points and win some meaningful football games to make up for this lousy distraction

  122. Eric Says:

    Looks great to me.

  123. PRBucFan Says:

    Love it

    New Uni’s March 5th.

    Pewter may be gone soon lol

  124. PRBucFan Says:

    Not to mention with the football being cremesicle they can wear the throwbacks and still match.

  125. Mumbles Says:

    If we start winning it will start to look good to all of us. I was involved in a paternity suit once. I kept telling the judge that the kid didn’t look like me. The judge told me if I took care of him long enough, he would start to look like me!

  126. mitsurugi Says:

    After viewing both logos side by side for about 10 minutes, I am finally happy with the new logo. It’s more modern and cleaner. The old one was nice but looks dated now.

  127. DallasBuc Says:

    This whole thing where you have to use the same helmet when wearing throwbacks is the stupidest rule yet. What the hell does the nfl care and don’t tell me it’s about safety. So we have to see this ridiculous logo change so somehow the ball can match creamsicle unis?…you do know that unless the whole outfit is changed, including the helmet, it does not qualify as throwback?

  128. Tut Says:

    Looked so much better on TV

  129. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Well of course, look at what happened to New Orleans. Ah, the mighty Pelicans lmao. They are still our team they will just look different.

  130. feelthepewterpower Says:

    Why is everyone worried about one throwback game per year? lol I mean I love the old uniforms, but who cares what were wearing as long as were winning.

  131. WalkdaPlank Says:

    The NFL has a lot of dumb rules, like that one that cost us a throwback win against the Saints in 2012. But appearance rules? Surely they have updated versions of the throwback helmets.

  132. PRBucFan Says:

    We’ll see I guess 😉

  133. Macabee Says:

    I don’t usually give short answers, but this time I can. I like It!

  134. zam Says:

    Why couldn’t they let the fans decide, like the Patriots did?

    Every time I look at the helmet, it looks stupider and stupider.

  135. blackmagic00 Says:

    I dig this new look. But the new buccaneers word logo sucks.

  136. Old*Skool*BucFan Says:

    So much cry babies…ownership just cant win with grown men who wear panties and b!tch on websites. I like it, there is nothing wrong with getting us ready for the new look Bucs. REAL fans appreciate the Glazers attempts to spice things up.

  137. blackmagic00 Says:

    Never mind when the word has a black background it fits the new look. And I love the new look. It’s a little more aggressive.

  138. zam Says:

    the new logo looks like Microsoft Paintbrush from the 80’s

  139. Harry Says:

    WOW 126 comments!!!! Are we talking about how average Glennon is?

  140. Virginia Buc Says:

    Helmet isn’t black

  141. BOb Says:

    With the helmet looking like this (which i love) you just know the uniforms are gonna be really progressive and modern. get ready for lots of crying around these parts come march 5th.

  142. SpanishBuc Says:

    LOVE IT!!!! Especially from the front and back. Chrome grill is sick. I want to see one of our DE with and Osi Umenyiora facemask.

  143. ryan Says:

    Now I see why the Bucs were having a 50% off sale on their team website for jerseys,hats,shirts,etc.

    I still have the receipt. I wonder what the refund time limit is. I’m sure the time period ended well before the announcement of new jerseys though.

  144. Andrew 1 Says:

    My last comment on this but I think the reason why they went with a bigger flag is because they wanted a helmet that was mostly red. The way you do that is by making the flag bigger. If thats what they were trying to do then mission accomplished. just my thoughts g night.

  145. SailorJerry Says:

    Another Tampa Bay joke. Flag is way too big and cartoonish. Went on today and bought enough of the old game day gear to last for years.

  146. PRBucFan Says:

    But we are the Buc fanbase so mass hysteria over anything really isn’t a surprise Lolz.

  147. nick j Says:

    I like it

  148. the1trubuc Says:

    This looks ok, I like the darker pewter and chromed grill I bet on a sunny September day , player’s gonna be bitching about how damn hot they are to wear. I hope note but that’s my bet. And I bet some small pirate school is wanting their helmet design back, thanks NIKE

  149. Josh P Says:

    What a buzz kill….there are so many better ideas out there than this.. if all they were gong to do was blow up the flag and tweak the skull they should have just left it the way it was… It looks like a bad college helmet…

  150. Name Required Says:

    I love the look! The last generation of the uniform was starting to look a bit dated.

    Paying closer attention to the football on the logo… reflective orange?

    Perhaps the uniform will sport reflective orange and/or chrome accents?

  151. Patrick in VA Says:

    It’s ridiculous that the helmet logo post gets 150+ posts and all the coverage Joe gave us through the day yesterday goes largely unnoticed. Then Joe gets killed for pushing reader’s buttons. if nothing else he’s got his thumb on the pulse of what readers want to talk about.

    “Largely unnoticed?” Joe appreciates your, um, vote of confidence. If you’re going to invest your time on thinking about such things, consider that far less than 1 percent of readers comment. You really can’t make big inferences like that.–Joe

  152. Mord Says:

    Meh.. Why complain about the attention? It’s news we haven’t had to digest for 15 years.

    And meh, the helmet is okay; good in some ways, but the size/proportion of the flag/graphic a bit … I dunno, silly?

    Where it gets sub-meh is in the typographical part of it. I mean, the old lettering was pretty bad; this was a chance to make an improvement.

    I agree it’s all a wash if the team and the new leadership bring some actual success.

  153. Patrick in VA Says:

    @joe – perhaps unnoticed was a poor choice of words. I meant there were a lot more points to discuss and directions to steer the conversation throughout the day and it just seems that people latch on to the low lying fruit. Granted, yesterday I was pretty busy and didn’t have time to contribute either so perhaps that was behind it for others as well but it seems like for as much time as we spend going round and round about the same issues without getting anywhere we had a great opportunity to evolve the conversation a bit and there were maybe 20-30 posts per article until we had the big debate about whether the flag was too big for people’s liking or not.

  154. Pete 422 Says:

    I like the helmet & I’m with Joe in keeping the colors. The logo is way to big. Reduce the size of the logo and lose the flag.

  155. Eric C Says:

    Love the new helmet. I do not like the new Buccaneer font. All I can see is sideways “T”s in the C and sideways “Y”s in the E. Otherwise, great change imo.

  156. [THE HANGOVER] Discussing Absent Players, Stadium Non-News, And David Price The Matchmaker | Rays Index Says:

    […] The Bucs have a new logo and helmet. I like that the Bucs changed the pewter which was never really pewter and was kind of forced upon the Bucs by the NFL who wanted a new base color in the league. I also like that the football is more in line with the team’s original orange color. I don’t like how big the logo is on the helmet. It feels too much like a college helmet. I understand the simplified logo even if I am not crazy about it. Many teams are creating less busy logos which are easier for manufacturers to reproduce. I assume the pants will change color to match the helmet. But will the Bucs finally introduce a black jersey? [JoeBucsFan] […]

  157. D-Rome Says:

    At first I was taken aback by the size of the logo but the more I look at the picture in this article the more I’m liking it. I’m glad they didn’t completely change the logo. It was only tweaked.

  158. Cobraboy Says:

    The base color looked much brighter with much more pronounced metalflake on TV than the photo.

  159. sho-nuff Says:

    this is beyond ugly, obtuse,borderline vulgar…..I was hoping for simplicity. a cleaner look that moves away from shiny….once again the lightning do it with class and style while the bucs look like a 12 year old boy owns the team

  160. DontBucNH8 Says:

    Looks like a kid drew it and the logo is too big in my opinion.

    I think it looks great. When I first saw it I wasn’t sure. But when you see the new next to the last one it is a big difference. I didn’t realize how dated it was. This obviously means still no throwback game since they can’t change the color and Bucco Bruce would look fairly stupid on that helmet. So hoping we get an alternate color uniform, how about all pewter with red/orange trim. Can’t wait till March 5th

    Agree at first glance the flag looks huge, like it covers the entire side of the helmet. Hope the players inside it play huge.

    Love it!

    The owners thought the big red flag would help the quarterback see the receiver downfield.

    Does look better on television

    Colossal FAIL! Sure hope the new uniforms don’t make it worse…. IMO, the Bucs went from 1 of the best helmets in the league to 1 of the WORST!… Wisdom says you shouldn’t expect someone to get it right every time… That sure is true in this case.

    have y’all seen the helmet from the looks great it looks like flames.

  170. BirdDoggers Says:

    The flag decal looks a little exaggerated on the helmet. In some of the pictures I’ve seen, part of the decal covers some of the ear hole. That would suggest it’s too big. Oh well, I guess the market researchers and design department know best.

    everyone will love it when the players are wearing it.tampaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    I was hoping for Bone White helmets with a blood red (crimson) flag….drop pewter gray….Uniforms all white away with silver and crimson highlights and all crimson home with silver and bone white highlights……..size of logo is fine.

    Love it Lovie!

    You know, my first reaction was blah.

    But then I just learned they are changing the uniforms as well…the new ones will be announced on March 5.
