Your Sunday NFL Draft Cheering Guide

December 20th, 2015

bucs cheerleader 0801The Bucs are 6-8 and out of the playoffs. So that means great hope in the worlds of Bucs fans lies in 2016, specifically the NFL Draft.

So what should Bucs fans want to happen today in the NFL?

With three games remaining for most of the league, there are loads of ifs and buts on the schedule. But Joe considers the following to be potential results that would help Tampa Bay.

It’s your cheering guide for today.

1) Oakland (6-7) must beat Green Bay (8-5). The Raiders are still alive in the AFC, and they’ve had a solid year under their first-year head coach, Jack Del Rio. Oakland’s got miserable San Diego next week. So a win today would put them in great position to finish with a better record than the Bucs.

2) Go Giants (6-7)! Take out undefeated Carolina. First, it’s easy to root against the Panthers. Second, the Bucs want a better draft pick than New York, which like the Bucs, is hurting for pass rushers.

3) Jacksonville (5-8) to beat Atlanta (6-7). This one is tricky, but with a win today, the Jaguars will have a good shot to pass the Bucs. They finish the season with Houston and New Orleans. Joe would love to see Atlanta completely implode, which Joe thinks is likely. They finish with Carolina and New Orleans at home.

4) New Orleans (5-8) over Detroit (4-9). With a win, New Orleans, too, has a chance to overtake the Bucs and help Tampa Bay get a better draft pick. That Jaguars-Saints game next weekend will have huge draft implications.

    Now, when it come to higher draft picks. I have FULL confidence in Lovie!!!!!

    I have questions Joe!!!

    1.) where is the confidence poll!!!
    2.) I thought you were going to do a Saturday webcast show???

    I really though that the Saturday afternoon show would have morphed to a Saturday Evening show that would have been called “Drunk with Joe Hour!!” where text and email and chat room would say what beer we are drinking and what was right and wrong with the bucs!!!

    oh well, maybe next year!!!!!

    What the hell are you talking about? On the poll, the next one is coming on Monday. –Joe

    This is pointless

    ……….if Lovie is the HC next year……bucs fans can expect another season like this……

    LOL Realist lay off the Egg Nog.

  5. The Buc Realist Says:


    LOL, well, he did not say no to the “drunk with joe hour” I tried to phrase it so it was his idea and they just forgot about it!!!!

  6. Seminole Bill Says:

    Joe, are you implying the Bucs should lose to Chicago and Carolina to improve their 2016 draft hopes? Hopefully not. This team’s problem is not next year’s draft, it is abandoning the losing attitude, it is going on to the field expecting to win. The last two games of the year are important to this team.

  7. Abdominal Snowman Says:

    Wouldn’t kill me to see us lose in the last couple games. I’d like to see competitiveness but sneaking into the top ten could pay dividends. There are two elite CBs in this draft and its doubtful to get one outside top 10. If we could coup one of those guys and draft a Pass rusher first two picksnthat would be huge. Maybe Rorbert Nkblabla falls and we can get him. That would be 2 starters off the bat.

  8. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I agree with Seminole Bill.

  9. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Abdominal Snowman

    There is no chance that we draft a CB with our first pick. None. It will be defensive line, probably defensive end. And I would not be surprised if they get another one in round 2, though a CB there is more likely.

  10. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’ll be pulling for Pittsburgh to beat Denver in the late afternoon game. It’s on TV. I don’t think the Giants will beat Carolina. Undefeated regular season is most likely a given for the Panthers. They are certainly not unbeatable, but the NFL normal elite teams seemed off this year. I’d love to see Carolina knocked out in the playoffs.

  11. Buccfan37 Says:

    Giants suck!

  12. Espo Says:

    I don’t want to think about the draft until the off season. Not now. Not last year, when it mattered most. I want us to win each game we play. The only exception is if I can draft the lovely lady in the picture.

  13. Rrsrq Says:

    As important as draft position is, it would do more not to finish in the cellar again

  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    Giants suck! Spoke too soon, the fat lady hasnt sang yet. Uh oh, a tie. Go Giants. Kill the undefeated season.

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    Brock Oswilier (sp) is making the Steeler defense look like the Bucs. Pathetic, Steelers pass D ranked 31st in the league.

  16. Bryce Says:

    Lets draft Sua Cravens out of USC can play safety or corner
