Do The Buccaneers Have A Pro Bowler?

December 20th, 2022

This season’s Pro Bowl roster announcement comes tomorrow.

Will a Buccaneer be named? It saddens Joe that it’s a fair question.

Fan voting represents one-third of the vote to get a Pro Bowl honor. The other thirds come from players and coaches casting their ballots.

Kicker Ryan Succop was off to a great start, but he’s fallen off in recent weeks and his long-range deficiencies will keep him out of the Pro Bowl.

On defense, Vita Vea’s 6 1/2 sacks are a huge number for a defensive tackle. So that might be enough to get Vea in, along with his reputation around the league. Sadly, that’s likely it on defense.

Devin White was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, along with Antoine Winfield and Mike Evans, and they all got to the game in Las Vegas thanks to other players backing out.

Evans and Winfield are unlikely to be named alternates this season. White might be.

On the sad Bucs offense, the only likely Pro Bowler is right tackle Tristan Wirfs. Nobody else is worthy.

So Joe’s official guess is Wirfs and Vea are Pro Bowlers, and maybe the Bucs squeak in an alternate. That’s what happens when you’re 6-8 and few starters have improved.

    Maybe Jake, our punter.

  2. D-Rok Says:

    Hard to name 1 starter that has been pro-bowl worthy, and available, all year. Wirfs, perhaps, but it’s hard to get votes after missing games. Besides, voting for pro-bowl is really a popularity contest.

  3. BA’s Red Pen Says:

    I wonder how many of the goobers voted for Trask.

  4. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Joe I think we need a head coach that can bring out the best in players and if not ship them out. I truly believe Bowles and Lefty are not right to steer this team.

  5. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Wirfs would’ve been one if not for his injury.

    The Punter has been good all year long too

    ….that’s about it Joe

  6. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    ……and HELLS NO to Devin White……his play has been spotty to bad this year.

    I dunno why his play has fell off so bad this year???

    probably the same thing that’s happening to the whole team — Bad Coaching and Lack of Motivation.

    I doubt even brady could hit a strike,,,,,,,,and you think we have bowlers?

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I heard Donovan Smith bowled a 240 once…..does that make him a “Pro” Bowler?

  10. Christos Says:

    Dont understand all the fuss about the Probowl. Used to mean something like 15 years ago, its only a popularity contest now. Its not like the voters are watching all the games, i mean some national media members dont watch all the games if you listen to what they re saying.
    Only Wirfs and Winfield have played at a high level constantly but Winfield is hurt a lot this year. Dean has played good too.
    But if you watch all the games from all the teams ( I do actually for the most part, with the small exceptions) I believe only Wirfsis playing at top 3 or top 4 in his position

  11. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Don’t care.

  12. KingLDavid54 Says:

    The only question that matters is “Do the Buccaneers have a Super Bowl in February?”

  13. HC Grover Says:

    Pro Bowl is boring. I have never even watched it.

  14. Redeemer Says:

    Doesn’t matter, but no I don’t see a clear cut pro bowler on the roster.

  15. Darin Says:

    No pro bowls we’re all anti bowles

  16. The Anomaly Says:

    JOE, you said this was a quality roster….where?


  17. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Our kicker hasn’t been bad.

  18. jugheadfla Says:

    The only bowl I care about is Super…Unless you are talking about Toilet Bowles

  19. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Back to irrelevance.

  20. Darin Says:

    Anomaly. We don’t all know players can’t be good if they’re put in position to fail? Same guys who made the pro bowl last two seasons are now laughable. You do the math

  21. Allbuccedup Says:

    Damn sure its not Donovan Smith.

  22. DungyDance Says:


  23. Pewter Power Says:

    It’s kinda out of sight out of mind when it comes to injuries for the probowl. Hope for Tristan but no one else on offense deserves a spot Winfield is the one bright spot of this team Vea has had a decent season but not probowl level

  24. (Choose Another Handle) Says:

    LOL!!! Who cares! Pro Bowls don’t mean squat anymore and nobody likes to watch flag football.

  25. LOL Says:


  26. Bucamania Says:

    The only Pro Bowl player on this team is Tristan Wirfs.

  27. D-Rome Says:

    Pro Bowl is boring. I have never even watched it.

    Then how do you know it’s boring? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  28. Statguy Says:

    Punter and nobody else

  29. Kentucky Buc Says:

    The P Bowl is a popularity contest. Perfect medium for the Me generation of athletes. I’m sure D White will be mad if he doesn’t make it. There’s a reason most vets opt out of this. All Pro is what players should strive for but what do I know.

  31. Big Wally Says:

    Truly – who gives a sh$t.

  32. Bring back the lawn chairs Says:

    Camarda then Wirfs, vea, as alternates.

  33. Oneilbuc Says:

    NEfan. You would only pick players that come from New England lol 🤣. Why don’t you just get off this site and go back to a New England fan site. You suck as a Patriot fan lol 😂😂.

  34. Ed Says:


  35. Joe Says:

    Truly – who gives a sh$t.

    Oh, just a hunch the guys who have a Pro Bowl bonus in their contracts?

    Bucs fans who will be in Vegas in February.

  36. Bucobill999 Says:


  37. NEfan Says:

    Oneilsuckyall, he’s a Buc!!! He hasn’t given up a sack and does his job. How many times have you heard bi#ching about him. Maybe Carmurda, I am not sure what other punters are doing. Instead of shatting on me how about you answer the question? Jamais I off the table, he doesn’t play he is 3rd string like Trask.

  38. Mike Johnson Says:


  39. Marine Buc Says:

    @ Pan Handle

    I agree. Our Punter is the highlight of this team…

    Wow – that is pathetic.

  40. gman1 Says:

    slow news day at JBF….maybe the punter, whoever he is

  41. Bucsalltheway Says:

    Thier names are jamel dean and antoine winfield jr…we all know this!

  42. firethecannons Says:

    not voting for any of this bunch

  43. Goatfarmer Says:

    Good bye, Diva White. Pay LVD to stay, and get someone that just wants to play football instead of all the headlines. Sick of the overhyped, overrated, underachieving, all talk and no action Diva White. A good playoff run, that was awesome. Too bad it went to his bloated head.

  44. Buczilla Says:

    I can see maybe Wirfs and Vita like Joe said, but even that’s a stretch as lousy as we’ve played.

  45. Bucschamp Says:

    Pro Toilet Bowles we have
