We Have A Preseason Schedule

June 10th, 2021

“Let’s go, Bruce!”

Be still Joe’s heart. We now know who and when the Bucs will play in those worthless preseason games.

This year, the NFL returns to having preseason games. Oh goody. In part because of the new, expanded 17-game schedule, the NFL will have three preseason games for each team.

Below is when you should set your schedule to watch the Amazon delivery drivers, telemarketing managers, high school football coaches, Chili’s assistant managers, insurance claims adjusters, longshoremen and nightclub bouncers play.

Saturday, Aug. 14
Bengals, 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 21
Titans, 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 28
at Texans, 8 p.m.

Maybe this is only interesting to Joe, but with the Bucs suddenly becoming the darlings of TV network suits the past two years, the NFL will not feature the Bucs on any nationally televised preseason broadcast.

    Joe, usually the third preseason game is where we see most of the starters play.
    Since we are down to three preseason games do you think it will be the second one?

  2. AlabamaBucsFan Says:

    I think the change to a 3 preseason game / 17 game season was a smart move by the NFL. Maybe next year it will be a 2 preseason game / 18 game season.

    Oh Goody. Preseason could be just like this website. Don’t like it don’t come here and read. Only in this case don’t watch. Nobody forcing you to. To some of us at least it is some kind of Bucs action after months of nothing at all.

    Maybe. 🤷‍♂️ Joe tries not to think about preseason games.

    Much more interested in the controlled scrimmages with the Titans.

    LOL Those “worthless games” continue to put a few extra buck$ into the coffers of the NFL owners and the people who work the stadiums.

    I as a fan certainly expect the NFL to trim them down to two games when they go to the 18 game season.

    Ooooh! I get to be triggered! Yes!!!

    Hey Joe, I don’t know many longshoremen, and nightclub bouncers that have college degrees. At least you didn’t go with beer truck driver this year. These guys worked their butts off for four years to get a college degree and chase their football dreams at the same time. Let’s show these future Engineers, and Dentists a little respect instead of disparaging them for not making the team.

    How did I do? LoL.

    A player not even on this team still gets love from Joe as Americas Quarterback and Brady’s moniker keeps growing beyond 15 names no matter how many posters whine and complain so how much you think he’s gonna stop calling camp meat /blue light specials future bell hops and beer truck delivery men? Not gonna happen unless you can buy 51% of joebucsfan.com THEN you MIGHT be able to get him to stop his Joe foolery! Just sayin it’s a waste of internet data

    Joe does. Guess you don’t know many ex-journalists? 🙁

    This is an entirely different subject but one Joe is passionate about. You will see and hear certain folks who cover sports who openly dismiss the educational element of college scholarships and they also claim if a sport can’t break even it should be disbanded.

    This is horribly short-sighted and downright irresponsible. How many non-revenue former athletes have had major impacts on our society that without sports (gymnastics, swimming, track, etc.) would never have had an opportunity to get an education? And these same people are now working in the healthcare industry, are defense lawyers, scientists — dentists as you point out — social workers. People have had a major positive impact on our society.

    Joe’s old school this way. If it comes down to paying a college football player — who already is getting a free scholarship that may be worth over $100,000 — or keeping a non-revenue sport, Joe sides with the non-revenue sports.

    Joe doesn’t give a flip about non-revenue sports but how many thousands of people have been able to have successful lives and pull themselves out of unfortunate circumstances and have an impact on society that would otherwise have been left along the curb without getting that scholarship?

    There. Rant/hijacking finished.

    2nd is against the Titans. Aren’t we doing scrimmage with them?

  10. lambeau Says:

    A few days of scrimmaging v. the Titans, culminating in a game on Sat night.

  11. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Awesome rant Joe. I agree with all of it. Warrick Dunn is a great example.

    There are not enough articles written about these types of uplifting stories. For some reason, apparently people enjoy negative news better. Maybe you could occasionally produce an article of an ex-Buc who came down the hard road and made good? It doesn’t have to be a super-star Buc. I know I would love that and I am sure there are plenty of stories available (rookie Stuart being the most recent example)

    Great job as always Joe.

  12. Hope springs eternal Says:

    My bet is the Bucs starters will play one or two series at the start of the first preseason game. Maybe a little more in the second game and then the 1st quarter of the third. Backups will get a lot of reps in all three games. No need to risk starters, we know what they can do. Time to test the number 2 and 3 guys and evaluate rookies. With a longer season and probable playoff run wins vs losses should not matter. Finding quality depth is priority one. Brady will hate sitting but risking him in preseason makes no sense. Finding his top backup should be a high priority.

  13. Buc-em-up84 Says:

    I dont know about you guys but I am dying to see the bucs preseason games. I’m excited to see all the these young guys perform and to see this year’s rookie class play because they probably won’t touch the field much during the season. It’s a good thing if they don’t play that means our starters are healthy hopefully. #GoBucs
