Boomer Esiason Says Giants Will Beat The Bucs

November 22nd, 2021

Four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Boomer Esiason is the voice of New York sports radio, in addition to his NFL analyst duties for CBS.

He’s not known for hot takes, mostly reasoned and seasoned commentary. But Perhaps Esiason’s most famous juicy analysis was when he jumped on Tampa sports radio in October of 2012. Esiason was asked about then-quarterback Josh Freeman and talked about how he hates to deal in rumors and innuendo but Freeman has an issue with “clubbing” and needs to get more serious about his behavior on Friday nights and Tuesdays (the players’ day off) if he wants his career to last.

At the time, Esiason claimed he had insider knowledge. It seems he did.

Fast-forward to this morning on WFAN radio in New York, and Esiason was talking about how he has a gut feeling the Giants will win tonight against the Bucs. It seemed Esiason was relying on nothing more than Giants quarterback Daniel Jones playing better than his stats might show and the return of running back Saquon Barkley and former Pro Bowl receiver Kenny Golladay finally healthy.

Joe’s not afraid of this game or the Giants. Esiason isn’t going to sway anyone’s mind at world headquarters.

Interestingly for gamblers, Esiason said Tom Brady’s league MVP hopes likely rest on his performance tonight as the Bucs are at a bit of a crossroads in their season and Brady is the favorite for the award as of this afternoon.

    Who is this Boomer guy again ? Is he somebody relevant ? Does he think he‘s a football genius ? But I have to agree with him.

  2. Upstate NY BUC Says:

    Let’s go BUCS, Boomer is a hack always running his trap. Otherwise quiet and cold up north!! Brady goes off baby, let’s do this!!!!

  3. Medicated Pete Says:

    Pete would rather go outside and pick a peck of pickled peppers than hear what that BOZO says 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

  4. BFFL Says:

    Certainly possible considering Bucs lost 2 straight. But unlikely just because Brady is next to unstoppable at home.

  5. Aaron May Says:

    We need to go out and prove we are good team. The way we’ve played the last 2 games…I couldn’t pick us to win without some doubt…

    Go Bucs – let’s get back on track!

  6. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Bucs are not losing 3 in a row. They got this. Gotta get off to a good start though.

  7. Swampbuc Says:

    Boomer Esiason is right.

  8. Francisco Guzman Says:

    They should know what’s at stake here especially in the division. Can’t fool around.

  9. Bucsfanman Says:

    Well, I have a gut feeling that the Bucs are going to embarrass the Giants.
    Boomer can have his opinion. At least he didn’t try to drum up some faux reason. “The gut!”

    Go Bucs!

  10. Leighroy Says:

    I can’t fault Boomer, even if I disagree with him. As a former Giant, his logic is sound and I’m sure it doesn’t escape him that they beat us by 1 in ‘19 and only lost by 2 last year in a very tight game.

    However my opinion is that when Tom Brady stands at a crossroads, you bet on the man finding his way. 2 decades of a track record say so. Close game tonight, it doesn’t have to be pretty, just has to be a win!

  11. Medicated Pete Says:

    Who still calls themselves “Boomer” at age 70?????? 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

  12. Swampbuc Says:

    Old Pete never fails to crack me up.

  13. Craig Says:

    I take it that he is the Boomer of the meme Hey Boomer.

    Brady doesn’t want to lose three in a row, he did that once already. What Brady wants, Brady gets. The receivers will not let him down, as long as the offensive game plan doesn’t O.D. on vanilla.

    SMB will be the bridge to some deception on defense and the Giants will look even more confused than usual.

    Bucs 27-19

  14. Conte Piscateli Says:

    My concern is that regular season prime time games haven’t been good showings for the Bucs through the years. I would have felt better with AB and a full go Gronk because those two always shore up in prime time. My worry is the spotlight gets to some of our guys.

  15. Mort Says:

    Okay Boomer.

    (Sorry, it writes itself)

  16. Medicated Pete Says:

    Pete sent some rancid fried calamari to Danny Dimes hotel room last night. Danny Diarrhea will be dropping turds tonight

  17. Jeff Says:

    Boomer is right. Trap game all the way and the Bucs are too busy watching SB highlights. G-men win big. 30-10 Giants. Bucs go 9-8 and get the final playoff spot. Then one and done.

  18. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If we don’t start the game off with a false start, we will win.

  19. Tackleblockwin Says:

    I will not be shocked if we lose and won’t be shocked if we win. What I want to see most is our D come to play for 4 quarters.

  20. D-Rome Says:

    It seemed Esiason was relying on nothing more than Giants quarterback Daniel Jones playing better than his stats might show and the return of running back Saquon Barkley and former Pro Bowl receiver Kenny Golladay finally healthy.

    Saquon Barkley is one of the most overrated running backs I’ve seen in quite some time. Golladay is not a true #1 wide receiver. I think this game will be close but the Giants don’t have enough weapons. Not only that, Daniel Jones over the past few years is one of the most turnover prone QBs in the NFL. The only one that has turned the ball over more while he has been in the league is Jay-Miss.

  21. PSL Bob Says:

    I have a feeling the game will be forecast in the first couple of series. If the Bucs start fast and quickly get on the scoreboard, it will be downhill for the Giants. If the Bucs start off like they did last week I’ll be worried. No more come from behind games. Get up quick and then stand on their throats.

  22. Bobby M. Says:

    Jones is the type of QB that gives us fits….if we’re sputtering on offense again, I expect this one to be another close one.

  23. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Giants have won 2 of their last 3 and only lost to Chiefs by 3. Also they’re rested coming off a bye.
    This is a tough game- Bucs need to play turnover free and use their elite weapons- Evans, Godwin and Gronk.
    D will be ok if they’re not forced to defend short fields from turnovers.
    Take the Giants with the points.

  24. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Pete, it is amazing how your mind works, very witty. In your past, were you the cheif editor of Mad Magazine? It will be a total embarrassment if they lose at home tonight. There is still no sense of urgency. All they have to do is beat Carlolina, Atlanta an possibly Saints to secure the division, unless they all self destruct.To all you BA lovers if they do lose and BA is not fired this season is most likely over.

  25. cmurda Says:

    This will forever be known as the night the Bucs seized the NFC South. I don’t care what anyone has to say. The last 2 games are anomalies and are more representative of a team who’s injuries are finally catching up rather than a team that is going down the toilet. No way are we all of a sudden powerless. We are an elite offense that is missing an elite Tight End and an elite wide receiver. You can’t just glance past that. The defense got devastated by injuries. We already know that the defense is just hanging on but we can’t be beaten when our offense is humming. I hope we get the ball first because I’m anxious to see us put together a TD scoring drive. I expect some real success on offense. This is an opportunity for us to get right. We will get right tonight.

  26. Medicated Pete Says:


    Pete enjoys creating writing & if anyone at this website had any brains, they’d hire me as their #1 writer

  27. The Beer Whisperer Says:

    No way, the Bucs lose again tonight.

  28. Bucamania Says:

    Who knows with this team. Sometimes great, sometimes gutless.

  29. Defense Rules Says:

    Bucs have won all 4 of our home games this year. All 3 of our losses have come on the road (and yes, in loud fairly stadiums. Bucs are scoring slightly over 40 PPG in our home games, but only a tad over 23 PPG on the road.

    We’re playing the Giants at RayJay tonight. We got this.

  30. Miller5252 Says:

    This is a must win for the Bucs tonight. If they lose again, they’re starting to look like the other Super Bowl champs in Tampa following their win. It’s a big game for Brady and the boys tonight. They either set the ship right or it’s taking on more water then Arians can bail.

  31. Orlandobucsfan#1 Says:

    A 400 yard night will put TB in first place in passing yards with 1 fewer game than Stafford.
    Already 1st in the.

  32. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    This says it all – Boomer Esiason is the voice of New York sports radio, Duh ?
    Of course he would pick the Giants.
    No way the Giants beat us tonight, not in this lifetime, and surely not at home.
    We will win tonight, and put the NFC South in a stranglehold!
    Go Bucs!

  33. Swampbuc Says:

    I want all the optimistic takes to be right, I so wants you gents predicting a win to be right.

    But I’ve had the same sick feeling in my gut since before the Saints game. Maybe I ate some of Pete’s rancid calamari.

  34. Medicated Pete Says:


    Just try to be super optimistic tonight. If they lose, then it’s time to go ballistic. Winning by 1 point is fine right now. Losing , then we can go berserk

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    Wasn’t Joe not worried about the Redskins as well?

    In preseason I picked the Bucs to lose this game, and so far I’m 100% accurate on the year. However, there is good news, if what I predict is correct, after this game, the team is embarrassed and finally gets serious, plus they start getting healthy, and they’re undefeated the rest of the season, going 13-4.

    With as much as I’d HATE sitting through a losing game tonight, if you can tell me the Bucs win 7-straight after that and go into the playoffs on a hot streak, I’ll take it.

  36. #8 Says:

    Bucs need this one–make the division give up.

    They’ll drop 1 or 2 more, but they need this one to sort of get the engines firing if we hope to get hot for the playoffs.

  37. Defense Rules Says:

    Last 3 games the Giants played have been interesting. Beat the Panthers handily 25-3 using a balanced attack (46% run-pass balanced attack), winning both the Turnover Battle and the TOP Battle. Defense smothered the Panthers (only gave up TWO 3rd down conversions).

    Barely lost to the Chiefs 20-17 despite losing the TOP Battle handily (they did win the Turnover Battle though). Giants attack wasn’t very balanced in this loss though (35% run-pass). Still, Giants’ defense kept them in the game until the 4th qtr (then they pooped out).

    Then beat the Raiders 23-16 by going back to a heavier running attack (57% run-pass). Won the Turnover Battle easily (3-1), but only broke even on the TOP battle. Still, they got outplayed stats-wise but their defense saved the day.

    Should be an interesting game tonight. We got this.

  38. SB~LV Says:

    Last year they had an excuse, they have played sloppy inconsistent barely overcoming themselves football this year. So .. the Giants could beat the Bucs and there is plenty of film showing how.
    Disappointing and it is in the heads of the whole locker room.

  39. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Bucs aren’t covering spreads lately….expect them to tonight…..

  40. JimmyJack Says:

    Im looking to see the offense lead the way and get us back to winning. 7 points at halftime vs the Saints? 6 against the Redskins? And factor in what? 4 or 5 turnovers in those 2 halfs?

    As bad as the defens ed has been the offense hasent been getting it done either. Even if we gotta score 3 TDs in the 1st half to keep pace I believe our offense can get it done.

  41. Alstott up the gut Says:

    I’m from NY and listen to his morning show. I think he is generating local hype because Giant fans have some optimistic vibes right now. Bucs have a chance to take 2 game lead in the division. Bucs need to attack Logan Ryan’s replacement and have to get home on Dummy Dimes when they bring the heat. Important game for Bucs to take care of business!

  42. HC Grover Says:

    Bucs need to break out of the gate in to the lead.

  43. HC Grover Says:

    Bucs need a fast start. Break out of the gate and in to the lead on the rail for a win going away.

  44. mg Says:

    The Quality of play in the NFL is equal to the horrific officiating. They should have subtracted 3 games.

  45. Medicated Pete Says:

    How many fat new Yorkers will be farting up Ray Jay and spewing bad breath & body odor

  46. Medicated Pete Says:

    Test Mike Evans thc levels before every game

  47. kgh4life Says:

    The Giants seems to always play the Bucs down to the wire and tonight is no different. The Bucs are beat up in the secondary and their pass rush is inconsistent, even going up against a suspect Giants oline will be a tall order for the Bucs.
    On offense the Bucs keep getting in their own way with bad play-calling and penalties. Giants in a close one 27-24. Bucs nation should start to panic.

  48. Cobraboy Says:

    Would it surprise anyone if the Bucs lay another egg tonight?

  49. cmurda Says:

    @Pete. His THC levels matter not. Brady looking his way is all that matters.

  50. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Bucs got something to prove tonight. They could have been NUMBER 1 record in the league if they didn’t piss away 2 games to inferior teams…BUT they shot themselves in the foot. SOOO…totally do missing the possibility of a Bucs loss is just foolish. I want them to prove everyone wrong with a dominating game that stomps the Giants in all facets.

  51. cmurda Says:

    @Cobra. With Brady as the QB? yes, I would be shocked if the offense stinks it up again. I won’t be on here guaranteeing wins because I know how that goes but I expect our offense to get going. We will score points. Our defense worries me much more.

  52. ClodHopper Says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised by nothing from this team tonight. I can see Danny being Dimes again in a loss and I can see them being extra motivated and whoop some arse.

    And thats the problem.

  53. Buczilla Says:

    I really don’t want to go full blown uber nerd and start reading up on the 2022 draft, but if we lose to this pathetic team/franchise, it’s going to be hard not to.

  54. Cobraboy Says:

    @cmurda: where has the Brady O been the last two games?


  55. Medicated Pete Says:

    Jaylon Darden & Kyle Trask are the worst picks in NFL History

  56. cmurda Says:

    @Cobra It was MIA. It was pure crap which is exactly why I expect us to get it fixed tonight. We are way too good of an offense even with some pieces missing. I trust Tom. He does not like losing.

  57. Medicated Pete Says:

    Vikings WR Justin Jefferson is 10 times better than ANY Bucs WR

  58. Buczilla Says:

    @Medicated Pete

    Naw, too soon on those guys, but Saquon Barkley certainly is one of the worst in recent memory and Gettleman is at rock bottom regarding gm’s. I was high on Barkley coming out, but it’s not my job to make draft picks. Gettleman f’d up taking this injury prone, “can’t find the hole to save his life”, scared to get hit running back at two overall. Sure, he seems like one hell of a good kid that you’d want your daughter to marry, but he sucks big-time for being the second overall pick.

  59. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Lets go Brady ! you got this. In TB12 I trust. Go Bucs !! 👍❤️

    Boomer was a Bengal wasn’t he?
    You must be confusing your old blonde QBs.
    I’ll take Boomer’s opinion over Simm’s any day.
    We should win this game.

    That’s what scares me.

  61. Lesko_Brandon Says:

    Is the bucs game going to be shown in local channel? if yes, which one?

  62. Captain Dan Lawrence Says:

    It didn’t help Us coming off a bye… We should be just fine tonight.

  63. Medicated Pete Says:

    Pete cannot WAIT till Gene Deckerhoff butchers every name like a retarded drunk

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    I didn’t realize this until it was pointed out, any maybe someone already did here and I missed it, but the Bucs are averaging 40.5 points per game at home. Wow, now that is some home field advantage.

    The big concern to me is that the stupid Giants just give the Bucs a hard time, I don’t know why, it just is what it is, like the Bucs will beat the Packers at home and the Bucs will always lose in Chicago, the stupid Giants are a pain in the rear.

    Tonight what I’d most be concerned about is the Giants seeing what the Redskins did and just come out, throw 4 yard passes all game knowing the Bucs can’t stop it, and you control the clock, get Brady frustrated, and play keep away. This sorry a– defense had better show up tonight and do something different. If you can’t stop those short plays, if you can’t get off the field, then just 0 coverage blitz all game – yes, you will give up big plays, but you should get a few turnovers as well, and at least Brady will have the ball in his hands.

  65. Rod Munch Says:

    Pete – Gene isn’t the issue, he’s nailing all the names perfectly, it’s you that’s on the sauce, lightweight.

  66. Bucs4821 Says:

    How many Super Bowls did Esiason win? … I thought so … How did he get to one? Turning around and handing the ball off 40 times a game. By the way, in that Super Bowl, the lone Bengals TD came on a kick return. Boomer’s offense scored a grand total of 6 points.

  67. DoooshLaRue Says:


    It’s a real hot-button issue.

    Anywho…….Que the triggered Chris Meyers diatribe.

    I know my Fancy Man

  68. Buc1987 Says:

    Perhaps Pete shouldn’t listen to Gene.

  69. Buczilla Says:

    Uh oh, serviceable receiver Courtland Sutton signed recently for 15 per. Godwin (if he stays healthy for all 17) is at least twice as good as that stiff. I wish ya luck Mr. Licht.

  70. Rod Munch Says:

    DoooshLaRue – Been listening to him since his first year with Jesse Ventura and Al Keck.

  71. FortMyersDave Says:

    Lesko_Brandon. A little late but for next time try WMOR out of Lakeland, used to be TV-32 now just called Mor-TV.
    Its channel 12 on Spectrum but 32 OTA.

  72. FortMyersDave Says:

    Remind me to bet against Boomer from now on.

  73. Jorge Says:

    Boomer you are a Bum How about 30 to 10 ?

  74. FrankPillow Says:

    Remember when Boomer was nearly a Buc and not a Jet?

  75. Timbo Slice Says:

    What a buffoon
