Report: Bucs Planning Minnesota Relocation?

September 11th, 2017

Big decisions ahead for the Bucs’ braintrust

Bucs players are scattered around the country and winning head coach Dirk Koetter is in Tampa. For now, there’s a game Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.

But what about practice?

If there are issues at One Buc Palace preventing the Bucs for preparing for the game, or for players getting into Tampa, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times says there’s a plan in place — about 1,500 miles away.

If the Bucs are unable to practice at One Buc Place this week, they are planning to begin workouts at the University of Minnesota on Wednesday. Gophers’ head coach P.J. Fleck was a receivers coach on the Bucs’ staff under Greg Schiano.

A good indicator will be how fast operations resume at Tampa International Airport, which is expected to remain closed today as damage to terminals and flight capabilities are assessed.

Jiminy Christmas? Would there be nowhere to practice closer than Minnesota? That’s an awfully long trek for the team.

Joe’s starting to wonder if the Bucs could get league permission to move Sunday’s game to Monday night. First, that would screw up the Bears’ travel/preparation plans for Sunday’s game. That’s a good thing and a benefit.

Second, the Bucs shouldn’t be shortchanged with limited practice and prep time for the Bears. They absolutely need to win that game at all costs.

    Highlights on Glennon looked good. If it were not for his supporting cast, they might have won.

  2. darin Says:

    Thats first thing that crossed my mind was, how much practice are the bucs gona get this week. Irma has put some wrinkles in the plans. I think they have enough maturity n leadership to get thru nicely. We will find out soon enough. It is a huge game. Monday night would help. Sure would suck waiting even longer to watch a bucs game tho. Go Bucs

  3. Dlavid Says:

    With week three scheduled against the Vikings this might be the best place to settle down till all is back to normal in Tampa and surrounding areas .

  4. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    From what I understand, the damage isn’t bad in Tampa. Raymond James housed National Guard troops during the storm, so it’s in good shape.

    TIA will open up today or tomorrow.

  5. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    BTW…hope everyone made it through okay!

  6. NOSBOS Says:

    Without a scrape.

  7. MarineBucsFan Says:

    We have a team full of players that absolutely love this game of football. At this point (especially after watching the rest of the league open their season), they want to play as much as we want to see them play. I am not worried at all. They will be pumped to play, and ready to fine tune what they learned over training camp when they do get back together.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Jameis orchestrated relocating with some key players just to watch film, conduct a walk through, and study together. The scene on Hard Knocks with DJax in the hotel comes to mind.

  8. R.O. Says:

    So if we lose this game we might as well pack in the season?! That’s just a retarted thought process..

  9. Buc1789 Says:

    I think this team is more resilient then people give them credit for. The buccs will be just fine.

  10. JWBUCS Says:

    I watched Atlanta vs. Bears yesterday and both teams will require top play from the Bucs to win these upcoming games. The obvious strategy is getting pressure on the QB of either of these teams.

    One game at a time starting with this coming Sunday…. Personally, I believe we have the best coaching staff we have seen in Tampa in a long time.

  11. Lord Cornelius Says:

    That Tarik Cohen dude looked pretty special. We need to key on him and Jordan Howard and stack the box and let MG try to beat us with his mediocre WRs/TE while sending pressure since the dude doesn’t have much of a pocket presence.

    Our ability to move the ball so easily against Jacksonville looks more impressive in retrospect after what they did to Houston. Cincy D was good too week 1 even though Dalton sh1t the bed for the team.

    Hope you all were safe over the weekend and hopefully we can get a normal practice week in

  12. Lord Cornelius Says:

    To follow that up – all 3 defenses our first team played in preseason looked pretty formidable week 1 (including Browns). Leveon Bell did nothing and Big Ben barely topped 200 yards.

  13. Mike Johnson Says:

    I just hope the Bears start Glennon and not the rookie. The rook could give us problems. The Bucs got Glennon’s tendencies down pat!

  14. Tom Edrington Says:


    Swaggy doesn’t think practice is a good idea.

  15. Billy Buc N Brazil Says:

    They will practice and play the game Sunday in Tampa!! Airport open tomorrow!!

  16. MarineBucsFan Says:


    Just got caught up on some older articles and read in the comments that you are from Carver Shares!!!

    I grew up on Poppy Avenue homie whats good….

    Carver Shores is represented well by you my dude. What’s funny is, I seemed to always relate to your comments and agreed on most. So now knowing we grew up in the same neighborhood I guess it makes sense. LOL

  17. bucs_365 Says:

    Win at all costs? I mean, to the extent that’s true every week, that’s reasonable, but let’s not make it bigger than it needs to be. Jeezus, Joe.

  18. unbelievable Says:

    Zero percent chance the league would move the game to Monday night, in my opinion.

    If the Bucs can’t practice or play in Tampa, we will just be punished again and have to deal with the adversity due to the complete lack of contingency planning from the league.

  19. NFLNut Says:

    27-13 over Bears is my call … Falcons underestimated and took it easy on them, Chicago is not a good football team

    The best thing I saw week 1 in regards to Tampa was how horrible the Arizona Cardinals looked … and now with David Johnson out, that should be a road win for the Bucs that I was thinking might be a loss …

  20. FEFE Says:

    Headline initially made me think the Bucs as a whole were considering moving to Minnesota.

    Heart sank and I almost started crying lol

  21. NOSBOS Says:

    D@$! what a small world Marine. I’m sure we prolly know eachother bro😀.

  22. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Maybe. Im 36, went to Orla Vista Elementary. But then I moved to Winter Park (with my dad) during my middle school days and went to Maitland Middle School. Then I moved back to Carver Shores, graduated Jones High School class of 99.

  23. Rod Munch Says:

    [Not even going to allow this gibberish to go through. This may be the first time Joe ever fully edited a comment because it was so dumb. You can thank Joe later, Rob. — Joe]

  24. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Small world indeed. True story, I just found out about 3months ago a young Marine that works in my squadron grew up on Lily Street in Carver Shores. We worked in the same squadron and had small conversations for about a year before learning that.

  25. NOSBOS Says:

    I’m 39 bro I too went to orla vista,then robinswood middle. Ended up graduating Dr.Phillips and went str8 to the Army man.

  26. NOSBOS Says:

    I’m Big on them sports bar if you ever wanna link up man.

  27. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Oh wow!! we definitely have to link up one day. I’m stationed in Virginia, I may come home for Christmas. If so, I will hit you up in the comments bro. Regardless of that, my next trip home we linking up for sure.

    Three more years (Hit 20) I’m coming home for good.

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! Come on Joe – the people born and raised here that have been here for this time and time again will 100% agree with me, you should have given them that oppurinty.

    Also after you’ve lived here for 40+ years yourself and been through this time and time again you’ll look back and remember this and go Rod was right. Then call the nurse to change your drawers and at that moment I’ll roll up my wheelchair next to yours and be like, where’s my mad props pops. That will be elderly slang in the future.

  29. NOSBOS Says:

    Salute to you My “G”. And be sure to hit me up man. I’ll be shouting for ya on here from to time until then family.

  30. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Apologies for being off topic Joe.

  31. MarineBucsFan Says:

    For Sure NOSBOS. Salute to you too brother!!

  32. Joe Says:


    Joe knows people that were born and raised in Florida who got the hell out of town, probably since they’ve seen hurricanes do their own thing despite forecasts.

    If you were so certain Irma was a Chinese hoax drummed up by the feds (black helicopters, anyone), why didn’t you book a trip for you and your family to Miami Beach? You could have gotten mad discounts on hotel rates.

  33. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Adversity reveals man’s true character. If the Bucs can handle this, then they can handle anything. Won’t be easy, but I think they have the mental toughness to get thru this….might even bring the team closer together!

  34. Louis Says:

    With a clean pocket Glennon played well, but of the protection breaks Down hhe has a target on his back and he’s dead meat

  35. simeon 97 Says:

    They’ll probably postpone the game and we’ll lose next years bye.

  36. darin Says:

    Joe lol. It takes all types in the world. N just a message to all you people who freaked out over the bucs offense in a preseason. Just cuz the teams were called the jaguars and browns you assumed their defenses sucked. Browns gave up 13 against the “high powered” steelers. Jax a whole 7. Yes i know pitt scored 20. Local boy chickallo blocked a punt n scored a td on it. Go Bucs

  37. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I still can’t believe some posters here!!! I’m thrilled that I have a home to return to in two weeks. I’m not going to be boasting about I’m a “Floridian” and new better than to get worked up over a hurricane. That’s beyond retarded!!!

    Tell that to the “Floridians” who were wiped out in Naples…much less the Keys.
    Chalking up pure LUCK to being a “Floridian” is so freaking stupid that I can imagine a single brain cell remaining in someone’s head who believes that.

    And of course compassion is out the window. Do some of you…thankfully just a few morons realize what has happened to many of your fellow “Floridians”.

    Being freaking LUCKY has nothing to do with toughness or being a “Floridian”.

  38. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Moving the team to Minnesota might be a smart move. If the Bucs think we will have to play in Chicago this week instead of RayJay we would already be stationed up north and wouldn’t have the travel implications for week 3. It sucks, but I think that would be the best option if the league goes that route.

  39. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Darin, I wouldn’t brag about a Jags D that played against a QB that could be compared to Sefo more that Brady.

  40. SB Says:

    @MarineBuc……..I have met NOS in person and I can tell you he is good people. Hope you guys hook up for a beer and if you do, you guys better down a few for me.

  41. SB Says:

    Also……Chicago’s fastest WR Kevin White just went on IR. We BETTER win!

  42. SB Says:

    BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Darin, I wouldn’t brag about a Jags D that played against a QB that could be compared to Sefo more that Brady.
    TEN Sacks!!! Let that sink in a minute! That doesn’t have a whole bunch to do with the QB

  43. SB Says:

    LOL @ Joe’s response to Rod.

  44. Kstoges Says:

    Yo random thought guys I know it doesn’t really pertain to the article but I think the browns are gunna be a good team sooner rather then later like I think they will be actually preety nasty in say 2 to 4 years at most by then I think they will be more then a formidable foe they really have some pieces

  45. Sunny Says:

    Be happy and thankfully Irma didn’t hit .

    I live in PR , have family in Skb , Sxm , and stt . Went 4 days without electricity and 2 days without water here. The island got it worse.

    Just imagine no food , water , house , 90-100 heat. Kids a crying from hungry , elders are hurt. Looters are taking everything from stores and coming door to door with guns taking whatever they can.

    Raised in FL and that sure as F**k didn’t help me or my family or the other millions of people.

    Count your blessings dipS***t

  46. Sunny Says:

    The other islands got it worse ***

    Gonna take a long time to recover for all the islands hit , even after the media blitz is over. We are still going to have to deal with it.

  47. Billy buc Says:

    I’m still baffled we didn’t take
    a flyer on A.D for 3 mil one year deal??!!

  48. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    SB, it does when you hold on to the ball too long and have no escapability. You can’t tell me that was a pass rush that NO QB could handle.

  49. MarineBucsFan Says:

    SB I got u bro.

    Billy buc I was thinking the same thing as I watch Peterson run the ball for the Saints. I tell u something else, seeing all those carries go to Ingram and Kamara I’m starting to think they snatched up Peterson just because they hated the thought of him in Bucs uniform. Lol this a committee in New Orleans!!

  50. JameisDungy Says:

    The Vikings are going to be a TOUGH out.

    Especially without Doug.

  51. bucnut2 Says:

    We have to win the Chicago game, otherwise we are staring 0-4 in the face. Season over if that happens.

  52. bucnut2 Says:

    Bradford looks like slick brady tonight

  53. Billy buc Says:

    Exactly Marine buc!

  54. Billy buc Says:

    Dalvin looks Case of the stories!

  55. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    AP doesn’t fit this offense. Still got some juice, just on the wrong team.

  56. Billy buc Says:

    Dropsies sorry.

  57. bucnut2 Says:

    We will struggle with Vikings. Griffin totally OWNS Smith and Dotson will struggle with Hunter. IF Bradford plays like this we will lose.

  58. thespiritof76 Says:

    Speaking of the Vikings…

    “Don’t listen to anybody telling you you aren’t good enough. Just Keep grinding.”

    -Jon Gruden, on Adam Thielen.

    I don’t care too much for Jon Gruden sometimes but you know what, he is as right as the rain and wind that ripped my roof off last night.

    Forget the so called experts. Kurt Warner had to go sling passes in Amsterdam and Des Moines before he was ever given a legit shot – and when he got his shot, I called it. Back in those days, there were about 4 or 5 Arena QB’s who could have outclassed half the NFL if they were ever given their chance. (Fred McNair, Andy Kelly, Jay Gruden, Aaron Garcia, Ben Bennett, Mark Grieb, Sherdrick Bonner, etc… ALL were better than half of the garbage teams like the Browns kept throwing out there under center)

    BTW, Jay Gruden, best damn Arena League QB ever. Once again, the so called experts never gave him a shot so forget people like Mel Kiper.

  59. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Stop being a negative b!tch. We all know u love Mariotta, so go be a titans fan. Your idiotic opinions hold no weight here

  60. mark2001 Says:

    Hope I’m wrong…hate to say it, but it seems right now it will take a miracle for the Bucs to play in Tampa this weekend. An Orlando station said there are about 12.5 million without power in Florida after the hurricane. Who know when power will be restored? Over a million without power in the coastal regions from Pinellas to Lee, including the Hillsborough region currently. NFL powers that be…you better be thinking right now about some contingency plans.

  61. bucnut2 Says:

    HEY ME- unlike the rest of you uniformed homers, I study the rest of the NFL. I recommend you take off your rose colored glasses and look at what we are up against. The REALITY is we are an improved team but have a long way to go.

  62. mark2001 Says:

    Could we be playing the Bears in Chicago this Sunday? Don’t know we will be ready to host a game. Just think about it…Minnesota is only about not too far from Chicago.

  63. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    U don’t study $hit. U just spew negative garbage out of your peter puffer every time you post

  64. unbelievable Says:

    Oh man these comments are gold.

    Glad to hear people are doing well for the most part! Looks like my folks got their place spared other than some yard damage, but won’t know for sure until Tuesday.

  65. mark2001 Says:

    Restoring power for over a million customers in the Tampa Bay to Fort Myers region in six days? That is a major challenge in anyone’s frame of reference. Still, think we can handle Chicago in Chicago if we have to.

  66. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Lovie said Illinois will be playing USF in rayjay on Friday as scheduled. So it’s pretty much a lock that we have a home game vs Chicago

  67. mark2001 Says:

    You believe Lovie? If he said that he is delusional. A million customers without power in this region. I respect our Power company professionals, but in the State of Florida we have almost as many that have lost power in Florida as there are citizens in all of Illinois.

  68. bucnut2 Says:

    ME- you a re so wrong! Want to compare NFL knowledge? I already know the answer. The dumb, homer posts reveal your lack of knowledge. Please don’t reply to my posts anymore as I don’t repose to uninformed people. Best to you.

  69. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Let’s not go anointing Bradford just yet. He’s playing the Aints with 2 rookie starters in the secondary, and the worst defense in the league.

  70. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Prove me wrong. Pull up ONE comment EVER that u have made that was positive and I will shut up.
    Your dumb anti bucs post reveal how much u love Mariottas jock.

  71. thespiritof76 Says:

    @ Unbelievable.

    Well, I lost my roof. Picked up over 100 shingles in my yard. Funny part is that ALL of them are on the front of the house and I didn’t lose a single one on the back of the roof.

    Still no power. It hit Orlando and the northern suburbs pretty bad.

    “Funniest” part was how I helped the old lady next door (and by help I mean I did it all by myself) clean her yard for 2 or 3 hours and she didn’t even thank me. Yeah. Frak me I guess. Maybe my old school Bucco Bruce shirt pissed her off, lol…

  72. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Well lovie had to get that info from somewhere. Idk just what I heard

  73. JameisDungy Says:

    Dalvin Cook…

  74. SB Says:

    Cook just got 32 on one run when he only had 44 on 13 tries. Saints are getting worn down.

  75. SB Says:

    Saints making one of the worst QBs in the league look like ALL Pro

  76. mark2001 Says:

    Spirit…check the power company outages….in many counties all over much of the state, 60/70/80 percent in counties in middle and south florida without power. 12.5 mil…over half the population of Florida….twice the population of Wisconsin, or more than the population of Wisconsin and Indiana combined. Look at the restorations today in Tampa bay…very few. The workload is almost beyond comprehension. Just look at the numbers.

  77. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Wonder is the Glazers will lower concession prices for Sundays game?

  78. mark2001 Says:

    Mike…I believe what you are saying that Lovie said it. I just think he is whacked…. nothing personal, but I will feel lucky if my home in Pinellas has power by Friday.

  79. thespiritof76 Says:

    I agree Mark2001. It is REALLY bad. It will probably take until Thursday at least many of us start to get power back.

    Thankfully my office has power or lest I’d be in really bad shape.

  80. Dreambig Says:

    DALVIN COOK! Good thing we didnt need a guy like that! G%D D%nm it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  81. JameisDungy Says:


    we could moved up in the 2nd round and got him. Licht decided he’d rather draft a project.

  82. mark2001 Says:

    Spirit…no surprise no power…this was reported a couple hours ago…Orange County: 283,150 (57% out)

  83. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I was in the Draft Cook crowd, but to get him would have cost us either OJ Howard or Chris Godwin. Much happier with those two than Cook. That being said, I am upset that we didn’t get a guy like Hunt or Brian Hill. But can’t change it now.

  84. thespiritof76 Says:

    Yep, Mark2001. This was the “big one” in some aspects.

    I think this thing did a really bad number on Central Florida. I’d shudder to guess how back if it was worse…

  85. Ndog Says:

    Hey Blake you watching this no wiggle, stiff, can’t make you miss running back do work in game 1 as a rookie?

  86. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Bucnut2, seriously, why don’t you ever post anything positive? Can’t you put down your doom colored glasses and enjoy a conversation about “what if we’re good”. We get that you’re not a fan of Winston, but can’t you just look at the bright side just once?

  87. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Man this Viking stadium looks amazing.

  88. Dreambig Says:

    Cant argue yet Mike Evans. Love Howard and Godwin but I sure would love to have a dangerous man in our back field. I am a strong believer in a balanced attack. Hopefully we can get there with what we have.

  89. MrNolesAllDay Says:

    Dalvin Cook > Justin Evans + McNicholls……smh

  90. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    We can get there if Doug has a good year. Rb is loaded again in 2018 draft.

  91. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Just bought my tickets for bucs @ packers in December. Row 11 right behind the buccaneer bench.

  92. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Jeez I wish I picked up Ingram on draftkings tonight.

  93. Eric Says:

    127 yards for Cook.

    But he sucks at the cone drill.

    Pure idiocy not drafting him.

  94. Blackmagic00 Says:

    I hope everyone is ok. I’m not even caring for our game comin up as much as I am for the families of everyone and our facilities. As much as I want to win a superbowl, I want everyone safe. With that said, as much as I hope we come out firing and get to the playoffs? I hope it’s a really good season no matter what. Go bucs!!!!!!!!

  95. NOSBOS Says:

    I’m working right now,can’t even see’em. But I knew he wouldn’t make a lie out of me. Salute DC.

  96. Dreambig Says:

    I am with you Mike, we will be ok with our current backs. Godwin might be really special. You cant build Rome in a day. But Dalvin Cook just broke APs record for best game as a rookie.

  97. Dreambig Says:

    For the Vikings

  98. Blackmagic00 Says:

    Falcons, panthers and saints……. here comes the best and most real team in the south, HERE COME THE TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS TO CLAIM THE SOUTH!!!!!!!!

  99. Dreambig Says:

    Dalvin just broke the rookie record for the Vikings with a great game, 127 yards. Just exactly what he did for the Noles game after game. Every team that passed on him was just stupid. This kid is the real deal.

  100. Dreambig Says:

    Ingram better than AP tonight. AP is done.

  101. Rod Munch Says:

    People thinking the Bucs have an automatic win at Minnesota, I don’t know what they were thinking. Prior to the season I guessed we’d lose that game – BUT we’d get the win back from beating the Pats at home. That’s going to be a tough game, hopefully the Bucs are ready when we get there. Also that Giants home game – I hate playing the Giants, they give the Bucs fits.

  102. Dreambig Says:

    The funny thing about Dalvin that I don’t get is he didn’t get any Heisman hype or any national love but he was the FSU offense difference maker week in and week out. I predict he is the leagues next AP but yet so many passed on him. I’ll never get why everyone missed it with a boat load of evidence in their face.

  103. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    That national anthem was chilling. That girl can SING!!!!!

  104. SB Says:

    Thanks ‘Mike Evans……….I missed it and will Google.

  105. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Let’s remember that they were playing the saints. I’d take our defense over theirs any day. I’d take our wr, TEs as well. They have better rb talent and a more experienced QB. I like our chances. Giants looked HORRIBLE last night.

  106. JameisDungy Says:

    Jason Licht needs to thank his lucky stars that the Jameis/Mariota draft was available to him in 2013.

    Cause if it was a bad QB draft he would be at risk for getting fired.

    You can’t blow that many 2nd round picks. No matter how well you do at other things. Lets be honest…Howard fell into his lap as well.

    This draft was LOADED with RBs. Now we’re forced to count on tip toes Sims, decent Rogers and Dougie Every Other Year.

  107. JameisDungy Says:

    *I’m saying that he needs be thankful that was the QB class and not the 2013 one which had guys like Geno and EJ Manuel.

  108. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Mike Evans, don’t post anything good about the National Anthem. We all know BigHog will take offense to that.

  109. NOSBOS Says:

    I never quite understood either Dream. For as talented as he was one would’ve thought the hype train would have been bigger. Politics I suppose bro.

  110. NOSBOS Says:

    And I’m wit you,he about to make a lot of people pay bro.

  111. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Bill belicheat is arguably the greatest coach of this generation (maybe all time) he is also the GM. Belicheats 2nd rounders have all been busts in the following years.
    Jury still out on 2015-2016 but they don’t look good.
    I’m pretty sure Licht will be just fine.

  112. unbelievable Says:

    @Spirit, sorry to hear about your roof! It seems central and eastern got it worse, plus Marco and the keys which got really hammered. My folks were lucky none of the trees came down on their house.

    I was in Orlando in 2004 when we got hit with those 3 in a row. None of them were monsters but we lost power for 7 days > next one the roof was gone and unit above us partially flooded > next storm our place filled up with water > no more place. Lol.

    Hope you’re able to get everything back on track soon.

  113. Russell (Buc fan in Chicago) Says:

    Glad all of you are safe down there in Florida. Joe, may your power be restored soon and hopefully your house did not suffer severe damage. Go Bucs on Sunday. I don’t want to listen to these Bears fans up here next week. We need this win. Last note to Joe….any idea if the velvet lined lounge of the Vero Beach Ramada Inn had any damage from the storm?…lol…thats a classic! Be safe Florida guys! May all of you and your families be well tonight.Go Bucs!

  114. ColoradoBucs Says:

    Broncos offense being productive. Now I know it’s week one and it’s a small sample set, & moreover, our Bucs haven’t played, but we better look better than the Broncos with a 1st year HC & a 7th round QB. I’ll be so irritated if I have to watch another team succeed when we are far superior on paper.

  115. thespiritof76 Says:

    @ unbelievable. Ok, I’ll quit complaining now after hearing about what you went through, lol….

    That said, I remember 2004 as well when (4) of them came through in a two month span. The last one was relatively minor and I remember watching the Bucs-Raiders 2004 SNF game during it and hoping the cable an power wouldn’t go out. It didn’t but the 2nd one I think was the worst.

  116. darin Says:

    Speaking of Minnesota
    The vikings didnt score a single TD in the preseason. Just walloped the aints. Maybe thatll calm some of the freakouts over the offense down, maybe not tho. Go Bucs

  117. thespiritof76 Says:

    Oh btw, when I get my tax return next year: gas generator and hurricane shutters, lol….

  118. thespiritof76 Says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the announcing crew for the Chargers-Broncos game sucks ? Damn, they should have just went without an announcing crew. Hell, Joe could do a better job after you get a couple of beers in him.

    What a storm that could have.easily been 10 x worse , sorry to all that sustained damage !!

    My initial thought about the NFL season is that some of the parity that the NFL craves is gonna be gone………… There r teams with bad qb’s ,no running game, bad kickers, bad qb’s ( yes I said it twice) , no depth and so on making it easy for a couple mediocre teams with fortunate schedules to shine !!

    There wil be some serious blowouts this year is my prediction and that isn’t good for the NFL………… I sure hope the refs aren’t directed towards the NBA antics and yes I already have seen it after halftime of this weeks games……. NBA and boxing shenanigans!!!, terrible !!!!??!!

    Haggins I’ve trying to some these Bucs fans explain to why we should only expect to be one more win better than last season. There is no clear better than everyone else team now.. Wait just maybe there is,the nation hasn’t seen us yet bro.

    Mike.. your going to Lambeau in December? Better go on line and start buying your wool gear right now…and layer your clothes, a warm hat and coat that covers the ears…some great gloves and boots with thinsulate lining. Just getting tickets to a Packer game in Lambeau is quite an achievement, so if you can get that done, I’m sure you will find a way to keep from freezing, It should be a game to remember.
