Bruce Arians Wanted Bucs In All Pewter For Super Bowl

April 16th, 2021

Imagine all those glorious Super Bowl pictures, memories and highlights looking a lot different.

The Bucs pounded the snot out of the Chiefs wearing their glorious white jerseys and pewter and red pants. But Bucco Bruce Arians told the Bucs Total Access that he wanted the team in its new-in-2020, all-pewter look for the Super Bowl.

”The league said we could not do it because it was an alternate uniform. So if we can’t wear those, we’re wearing the ones we won all our other games in,” Arians said.

Joe realizes Arians is a bit of a fashion icon, but Joe’s not a big fan of the all-pewter look, though it is a much smarter choice than those made by the likely inebriated prankster who selected the Bucs uniforms worn from 2014-2019.

Joe suspects the Bucs will open their season at home on Thursday night, Sept. 9, wearing the white and pewter seen in the Super Bowl. That’s the new standard of excellence and beauty.


Your video invitation to Big Storm Clearwater, Thursday night, April 29! Giveaways, special guests, and more. Ira Kaufman and Joe will be in the house starting at 7 p.m.

    That would have been a very cool look. I like the new alternates better than the white/pewter combo. But staying with what got you there makes sense. Frankly anyone of the color combos look great when tied to a SB victory. 🙂

  2. Morgan R. Says:

    Agree with Bruce, the Pewter is the most badass of the 3 variants by far.


    I kind of like the pewter on pewter look. The white only makes the pewter look like crap. Pewter/pewter has a classier look, more unique. CHAMPIONS should stand out.

    B.A. wanted to play No Risk It, No Biscuit all season long too until TB12 told him NO

    Hot take, but am I the only one that finds the Bucs unis to be…meh? While this classic look is still an order of magnitude better than the “Jameis years” jerseys, I feel like the Bucs played it too safe. Before the unveiling of the new uniforms, I was seeing some renderings of orange and black and a few others I think would have been well received. When the Bucs wore their reds for the first time all yr in that Monday night football game against the giants, while the giants wore their 80’s/90’s uniform, I gotta say I’d take those giants unis 100 times out of 100. Love my team, but I feel like our unis are AT BEST middle of pack. They need to wear white all 16 weeks if they can

  6. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Pewter on Pewter, is okay for every once in a while, just do not really like same color for jersey and pants. The Bucs color rush catsup bottle unis were hideous. Why not sometimes pewter jersey and white pants. GO BUCS!!!!

  7. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    GOFORTHE….the unis returns for 2021 are spot on and the ugly brown josh freeman pewter nonsense color alram clock scheme are TURRIBLE and thank gawd they went back to the winning ones but really want to see Tahmmy in the bucco bruce because that Florida Orange white and red of the mckay days is FIRE

  8. Robert Says:

    I like the black

  9. Rashad Says:

    I’m a sucker for the White on Pewter combo.

  10. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Think Alstott in the red jersey/white pants. that was sweet!

  11. stephen j burke Says:

    People that want black clothing in the Florida sun have never done an honest day’s work…

  13. Steven007 Says:

    Clearly I’m in the minority here, but I’ve never been uniform obsessed. Win the damn game, I don’t care what uniform you’re wearing.

  14. Steven007 Says:

    *as long as it’s the winning uniform

  15. Anonymous Says:

    August 1976 is on to something. Would love to see the pewter jerseys with white pants. I would have also incorporated the Bucco Bruce on all the jerseys instead of the pirate ship.

  16. 813bucboi Says:

    i wouldve loved it!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

  17. windbaggery Says:

    Red and pewter, red on white, white on white… All these are also good combos because we actually have nice uniforms now! I’m a big fan of pewter on pewter too.

    Our uniforms are among the sharpest in the league. Traditional, but our color combo is unique.

  18. PatsBucsfan4years Says:

    Bring back the cream sickle jerseys

  19. Cannon Says:

    My favorite combo is the red jersey with the pewter pants… but man… they did NOT play well in those uni’s.

    They did, however, play really well in the pewter on pewter. They just looked like angry men out there (think Suh in all pewter).

  20. TampaTown Says:

    All Pewter would have been awesome! And the thought of seeing Tom Brady in the creamsicle uniform makes me want to look for the nearest fainting couch. Be still my heart 🧡

  21. mike Says:

    cant stand all pewter. All white is best or pewter pants and white tops

  22. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    August 1976 is on to something. Would love to see pewter jerseys with white pants. Also replace the ship logo on the shoulders with the original Bucco Bruce.

  23. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I really like the all pewter…….but I also like winning….we’ll never know if the uniform made any difference….I don’t think so.

  24. lowercaseg Says:

    The all pewter is one of the best we’ve ever had. Anyone who disagrees probably is still in love with those horrible 1970s Burger King uniform jerseys

  25. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    The pewter will always symbolize this magical season, just as the Burger Kings will always symbolize rock bottom. I bought my first jersey in 10 years: a pewter Evans. Put out a white David and I’ll buy another.

  26. HeyItsAdam Says:

    I know I am in the minority on this, but as much as I hated the digital clock uniforms, the color rush jersey was pretty cool. I often said that they should just make that the primary home jersey. The multicolored sleeves looked stupid. I got the impression that Nike was sitting at a table and they got like 15 ideas and in order to be “inclusive“ they used every single one of them in some capacity.

  27. lambchop Says:

    All Pewter is 🧨 . Any day better than the all red color rush.

  28. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    I am for all Pewter!

  29. AllHailJPP Says:

    The pewter is awesome.

  30. SOEbuc Says:

    My white Tristan Wirfs is on the way for my birthday.

  31. SOEbuc Says:

    Those pewter jerseys draw a hell of a lot more rays than the whites. And you have to represent going back to the classic red and white and winning the 2020 Super Bowl with a sick defense.

  32. ClodHopper Says:

    Dark jerseys and dark pants look emasculating to me.

    Like the Ravens. Their punters and qb’s look like ballerinas when they wear all black.

    That’s just me.
    My choice would have been pewter jerseys and white pants.

  33. Bradybucs Says:

    We need to ditch the corny helmet logo of the skull head with a football.

    We should go back to a red with a little orange accent Bucco Bruce doe the helmets. It would look so good. I have a retro/modern Bucs T-shirt that is a pewter shirt with large red/orange Bucco Bruce on it and it’s so awesome. My favorite Bucs shirt that I wore watching every playoff game and the SB game this past season.

    I always thought the newer Bucs logo was WEAK. That little football part of it really weakens it. Bring back an updated Bucco Bruce any day!

  34. Tye Says:

    I was hoping for all pewter unis… They would have looked amazing, they would have stood out as unique and different from all the other Super Bowl pics before them and a wonderful way to kick off the 20s of the NFL…. NFL screwed that up!

  35. SOEbuc Says:


    Are you serious? Our logo and helmets are badass.

  36. SOEbuc Says:

    Everyone says pewter but it is grey. Not the original dark bronzed pewter.

  37. Hank Rearden Says:

    Clodhopper wears socks and Crocs so………

  38. BUCFAN4LIFE Says:

    I love all of their color combos but the “Home Team” gets to choose either their dark or white Jerseys and we were designated the “Visiting Team” (I still don’t understand that one) so they didn’t get to choose which color Jersey they could wear . KC chose dark so that left us with only one option . White . Worked for me just fine !

  39. stephen j burke Says:

    Maybe we could just let Gisele design the uniforms. Can you imagine Suh in lingerie…

  40. BradyBucs Says:


    I think we were the “Visiting Team” since they had a better season record.

  41. ClodHopper Says:


    Hey if the look of dudes in ballet gear is your thing that’s cool with me. I aint judging or putting you down. It’s just not my taste is all.

  42. webster Says:

    The bucs were designayed the home team and they chose to wear white just like bruce said. Why do you think he said the nfl would not let them wear pewter? Because they had the choice. Did u not see the chiefs wear red against the 49ers last year? Because they were designated the home team. The nfl alternates the home team by conference which means next year the afc’s representative will be designated the home team regardless of record. Come on some of you ….keep up.

  43. alaskabuc Says:

    The pewter alternates should be made the primary color scheme

  44. Ash Says:

    I was pretty sure we were the home team I personally like the all pr

  45. Ash Says:

    It alternates between afc and nfc, chiefs were the home team for 54 so bucs were the home team for 55

  46. Jonny Says:

    I’m glad we have a head coach who thinks like a fan. I like the all pewter look more than red and pewter. Those uniforms might be the most cool and unique uniforms in the league.

  47. '79 Defense Says:

    I agree with SOEBuc. The all pewters don’t even look like pewter as we’ve known it as Buc fans. More like gray. I’m not a big fan of them anyway.

  48. Tye Says:

    AFC teams are home team every even number SB and The NFC is the home team every odd number SB no matter what their record is that year!
    Bucs had their choice of unis and they chose white…

  49. Ben green Says:

    You have the worst uniform in all of sports. The old uni with the cream sickle and white. Now that was class. They screwed that up, just like steve young

  50. John Says:

    The white is clearly the best look for a Florida team

  51. August 1976 Buc Says:

    Back in the 70’s and 80’s when the Bucs wore orange, red trim and white, I liked them. But man the crap that was said by so many about the creamsicles by so many, it got very old to hearing the crap. And the fact of all the losing. In 1997 when they broke out the Red and pewter it was like a breath of fresh air. It was so reminiscent of the Tampa Bay Bandits. I have never heard anything about it, but I will always believe that the Bandits influenced the Red and pewter. Back to the Creamsicles, would be very cool to see Brady sporting the Orange on a Sunday night game. GO BUCS!!!!

  52. David Says:

    Love the all pewter.

  53. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Medicated Pete Says
    “B.A. wanted to play No Risk It, No Biscuit all season long too until TB12 told him NO”

    Probably didn’t actually happen.

  54. orlbucfan Says:

    At least they got rid of those horrible red pjs with the terrible typeface used for uni numbers. I always liked the red, orange and white cos it reminds me of FL.

  55. Tom Sumner Says:

    Pewter on Pewter ROCKS!! r

  56. Tom Sumner Says:

    right!?? how about all cream sickle !!

  57. Itzok Says:

    All Pewter are the worst bucs uniforms in their history. Get rid of them.
