Gameday Tampa Bay

December 21st, 2014

Packers (10-4) at Bucs (2-12)

Kickoff: 1 p.m.

TV: WTVT-TV Channel 13, DirecTV Ch. 712

Radio: Buccaneers Radio Network (WDAE-AM 620 and WFUS-FM 103.5 in Tampa-St. Petersburg region); SiriusXM Channel 136.

Weather: Per Joe’s friends at WTSP-TV Channel 10, the game today will be played under idyllic conditions, sun-splashed with a temperature of 74 at kickoff, which may ease to 73 at the end of the game. Welcome to paradise, Packers fans. Pack your sunscreen, yah hey der.’

Odds: Per, Stinking Packers -12.

Outlook: Joe, to the angst of a lot of Bucs fans, must call it straight, which doesn’t exactly make the pompon crowd happy.  Packers stud quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a rare awful game last week. On games following a stinker by Rodgers, the dude just woodsheds opponents. The Bucs defense has played better since the bye week, but man, Rodgers has too many weapons to throw to and it seems people are forgetting about punishing running back Eddie Lacy. The only thing Joe is hanging his hat on is that in both starts Rodgers has made in Tampa, he is 0-2 with three interceptions in each game (his second game in Tampa was in 2009, when leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman made his first NFL start). Barring the Packers playing like rotten cheese — Green Bay still hasn’t locked up a playoff berth — Joe just doesn’t see how the Bucs can punk the Packers short of a complete and total Packers meltdown.

    Bucs 28 Packers 24. It’s a road game and the Bucs have been at their best on the road this year. Plus I wanna see a post game around here where most of the fans are extremely pissed at a win.

    even that pretty little Packer girl could sack McCown today….

    I want the #1 spot in the draft. I’m starting Aaron Rodgers in my FFL championship game. And yet… I voted Win because the satisfaction of sending invading fans home with a loss is so much more satisfying.

    Leaving the stadium after a Lightning win over the Red Wings or a Rays win over the Red Sox feels awesome.

    I’ll even wear a cheesehead

    Sorry, I can never pull for the Packers to win.

  7. Espo Says:

  9. road warrior Says:

    yummy!!! GO BUCS!

  10. Brooks4Prez Says:

    Reading various reports that the Titans and Jets may be going after Cutler and that the Jets have the cap room to land him. So if we wind up with the third or second pick we can land Mariotta or Winston. GO BUCS!!!!

  11. road warrior Says:


    right on bro.

  12. gatrbuc17 Says:

    I just saw the poll a few articles down below. In 38 Years of rooting for the Bucs I have NEVER EVER rooted for them to lose.
    Those of you that voted for a loss should be ashamed of yourselves. Stop calling yourselves fans.

    BTW her left shorts leg is lower than her right.

    All I want for Christmas is a pro football team that plays like one.

  15. Dave Pear Says:

    I’ll bet that Packer girl loves Frumunda cheese…
    The cheese “From Unda” my nuts!

  16. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’m on the fence about a Bucs win today. A win by the Bucs would be mostly meaningless considering the potential bounty awaiting whoever gets the number one overall pick. Just lose baby! How can you say that? Just win baby!

    That’s tour opinion GatorBuc. Some of us don’t just simply focus on the immediate future. Call yourself Narrowminded and ignorant out loud, then maybe we’ll we’ll question our fan-hood.

  18. Zam Says:

    no matter how crappy the season gets, Joe helps us all out with great pics. Thanks Joe!

    The only “hood” you have Sapp is the one covering the little man in the boat between your legs
