Bucs At Rams No. 52

April 23rd, 2015


Joe remembers NFL Network tormenting football fans with the Titans versus the Jaguars late last season. Both teams were beyond abysmal. It was an insult.

Joe, supreme football nut, refused to be swayed. Joe never watched one play. Not. One. Play.

It seems the crowd at Fox Sports thinks the Bucs playing at the Rams on a Thursday night in December won’t be much better. Brad Gagnon of the FoxSports.com ranked all scheduled primetime games  and has the Bucs at Rams at No. 52, fourth-least desirable.

52. Buccaneers at Rams (Dec. 17, NFLN): Are we going to have to wait this long to see the top pick in the draft? And does anyone expect these teams to be in contention in Week 15?

Frankly, yes. The Rams have a helluva team, except for the crap at quarterback, which will catch up to the Rams eventually. Seeing how young Jameis handles the nasty Rams defense of Jeff Fisher should be interesting to any thinking NFL fan.

And, as Joe has written, this game could be historic. It might just be the final home game of the St. Louis Rams, or the final regular season NFL game ever to be played in St. Louis.

    That’s pretty surprising considering how important that Titans win was for the Bucs.

    I truly mean this when I say I could care less what others think about how interesting the Bucs games are. To me, they are the most important and interesting games each and every week, so I could care less what somebody else thinks. I don’t even care if we get prime time games. Just win baby.

    Meant loss…was a win for Bucs

  4. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    You are dreaming, Joe. Even if Winston is a great QB, he’s only one man and he cannot do anything when he’s on his back.

    I agree….It’s appointment television for me and has been the bone of conetention beteen my wife and I many times….she has finally realized that the Bucs are one of my true passions…and anything Bucs interests me….to hell with what others think.

  6. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Mainstream media hates Tampa Bay sports. This is nothing new. We Bucs fans always draw the short stick. You know what I think?

    Fukk Emmmm!!

    10-4 Rams versus the 2-12 Bucs.
    Glennon vs Foles

    As Jameis goes to IR in week 4 after the 18 sack after 4 games with an OL that can’t block a college DL.

    That may very well be true walk. WINSton will immediately turn this team into the rolling stones. Once the the wins start to pile up mainstream will follow.

    Man the NFL is so unpredictable this time of year especially. “Expert” predictions are always WAY off what will actually happen; outside of picking the big name teams with franchise QBs to make the playoffs

  14. LargoBuc Says:

    This will be a huge game. This will determine the wild card sixth seed. I think Foles will do well under Fisher and the defense will give him alot of scoring chances.

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    There are other NFL teams out there that stink worse than the Bucs. Right now I’m scratching my head trying to think who they are. Ok, how about stinking equally with the Bucs.

  16. LargoBuc Says:

    The Redkins suck. The Titans suck. The Browns and Jets suck. We will be better than all of them. The Saints will struggle. Taking Grahm away will make it very painful for Brees to carry the team. His defense took a huge step back and they lack a true running game. Brees will be Brees but the team will struggle to win games with an aging Brees expectrd to do it all.
    Look at the Ravens game in NO last year. They ran the ball and kept Brees off the field. When Brees was on the field, they challenged the aging quarterback to do it all by stoping the run. Brees kept it close but eventual he got wore down and that was with Jimmy Grahm. I think the Bucs take advantage. They sweep the Saints, split with Atlanta and get swept by Carolina. Unless the Saints use the draft to bring in some rookie support for Brees, I see them finishing last in the south. Their window has closed.
