Bucs Playoff Probability Percentages Not Awful

November 21st, 2023

Bucs coach Todd Bowles.

Yeah, the Bucs lost on Sunday. Yeah, Joe knows it’s another step back for playoff probability percentages. The good news is the slimy Saints and the Dixie Chicks didn’t play.

At PlayoffStatus.com, the Bucs’ chances only slightly decreased after the loss to the 49ers. Per this site, the Bucs have a 39 percent chance of making the playoffs.

From the New York Times, the Bucs have a 28 percent chance of making the playoffs but only a 17 percent shot of winning the division. Joe has a hard time seeing the Bucs making the playoffs as a wild card.

Over at BSPN, they have the Bucs with a 32 percent chance of making the playoffs. Winning the NFC South? They give the Bucs a 22 percent chance.

    We have no chance with a clown pretending to be a head coach. We do have some talent on the roster but Bowles has no clue what to do with it.

  2. Dlavid Says:

    This team is living in La La land ! Believing they “ should “ have one games .. “ so close” ….. can hang with the best teams …… big F’ing deal! Of all those qualities you are 4-6 with some downright horrific showings ! Fire Bowles and let the rebuild begin !

    Stop with the playoff talk. Being the best turd in the toilet isn’t anything to celebrate. It’s still a turd. Disgusting analogy, but I’m disgusted with the coaching of this team.

  5. MerryPlankster777 Says:

    Mora talk of “Playoffs!!”… Lets just talka winning a dang game, and finding new HC. We stuck in limbo til ten!

  6. WillieG Says:

    As long as players who produce (YaYa, Watts) are kept on the sideline while those who don’t produce (JTS) play, our chances are slim to none. As long as we have a coach who is too inflexible to change his precious “rotation”, our chances are slim to none.

  7. BucU Says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a HC make more excuses for garbage play week after week than Bowles. He’s a utter failure as a HC. Will this season make it 6 losing seasons in a row for this guy?

  8. Lt. Dan Says:

    Playoffs? Really? At point the Bucs would be one and done. Let’s just play for a higher draft pick and a new coaching staff already.

  9. Seattle Buc Says:

    Keep hyping the importance of a slim chance at a one-and-done playoff appearance and an NFC South Champions t-shirt! Anything to keep Trask off the field and not risk him making fools of certain people!

  10. HC Grover Says:

    Give him a couple weeks he will get it down there if he can. The Bowzo the Clown Show is on the road this week. I just wonder if this is the Tie Game week.

  11. Seattle Buc Says:

    I just realized we’re on a 1-5 streak. What would Joe be saying if Trask had started – as he should have given he “outplayed” Mayfield in training camp as per Joe – and was on a 1-5 streak? “He’s young, needs time!”? Nope. “Cut his ass!”? Yep.

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    all these percentages don’t mean much if we don’t win games……

    We have lost 5 of our last 6 games and 6 of our last 8.

    Think about that when you think how we’re doing.

    I’m as positive and optimistic fan as anyone…….but it’s not easy.

  13. #99 the big fella Says:

    What good will it do to make the playoffs? We will get blown out in the first round, and our draft position will be at the later part of the draft. I don’t feel good about the captains of this ship.

  14. Bubby Says:

    We could have gotten really young this year picked up some extra picks and still fought for the same playoff spot.

  15. ModHairKen Says:

    This is just stupid. What idiot thinks this team has any chance to do anything other than humiliate the community on national television like last year?

    There is nothing good about this team. The running game? Embarrassing. The red zone? Embarrassing. The DBs? Overpaid and embarrassing.

    Winfield. Wirfs. Evans. Godwin. The Punter. They have shown up.

    Bowles? Embarrassing. And everyone is afraid to be labeled something for calling him out. I’m not. He’s not good. Nice man. Not a good coach.

  16. realistic-optimistic Says:

    Same story as last season. Bucs lose, but so does ATL, CAR, and NO. So the door stays open until there’s literally one last win-or-go-home game. All we need is another 3-bombs to Mike miracle game and we’re in!

    Fans will rejoice. Bowles will get another 5 year extension. He’ll sign Baker for 10 years 450 mil, fully guaranteed. I’m getting goosebumps thinking about it.

  17. Bucshot Says:

    “So… you’re telling me we have a chance?”

  18. Curse of Gruden Says:

    🤡 No chance with this clown show. 🤡

  19. Buddha Says:

    Lattimore. and Thomas both out for Saints. QB in concussion protocol.. Falcons in must win game. After Sunday odds may change with all three at 5-6.

  20. Leslie Opyd Says:

    COACHING !! Why is Godwin out of the SLOT WERE HE IS A BEAST ? Put Palmer on the outside with evens . Palmer is fast ! Tell bowles to get his head out his ass !! And quit playing 15 yards off waiting for them to catch before tackle . Get there when the ball dies . Damn !

  21. gotbbucs Says:

    Please God no. We don’t need pick #19 again.

  22. D Cone Says:

    Michael Jordan will tell you the best thing that happened to him was getting bench early in his career.
    Jalen Milroe got benched at Bama and instead of being a little Bitoh and transferring out like college Diva’s or asking to be traded or released like the Pro version Diva’s do. Milroe sucked it up and worked hard. He’s now playing as well as anybody.

    Don’t count out Ridder because he could come back after benching and burn thru the Division. Falcons vs Saints is an important game for the Bucs. Falcons come out of the Bye and put up 30+ they will win the NFC South.

    Lol.. that headline… lol

  24. Couch Fan Says:

    LMAO I see we are still Super Bowl Dreamin.

  25. Drunkinybor Says:

    Lloyd Christmas : Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you Mary, just… The least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?

    Mary Swanson : Not good.

    Lloyd Christmas : [he gulps, his mouth twitching] You mean, not good like one out of a hundred?

    Mary Swanson : I’d say more like one out of a million.

    Lloyd Christmas : [long pause while he processes what he’s heard] So you’re telling me there’s a chance. YEAH

  26. Mike C Says:

    I wonder how many Denver fans gave up on the season??? Anything can happen during the course of a season, get hot at the right time, few other teams get injured and boom you are in the hunt. The 8-8 ny giants beat the undefeated pats….. guess the Giants should have just packed it in because they didn’t have the best record going into the playoffs. If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen, stick with your team or don’t, but whatever you do stop crying like a little B….dog ffs.

  27. realistic-optimistic Says:

    Honest and deserved criticism is now considered crying? I guess we should just mindlessly cheer when the ‘Applause’ light turns on?

    Give me a break with that argument. Being a fan does not mean putting your head in the sand.

  28. Mike C Says:

    Criticism is fine, just the ” NO CHANCE AT THE PLAYOFFS ” and the ” One and done if we make it” crowd can just go ahead and tune out, leave the FANS that want and hope that the team rights the ship alone. Stop watching and looking at this web site if you are done with this season.

  29. Couch Fan Says:

    Wanting the Bucs to make the playoffs and knowing they wont are 2 different things. Stop telling other people how to be fans if all you know how to do is shake those pom poms.

  30. Mike C Says:

    Try being a real fan and I won’t tell you how to do it. Do you know where the word “fan” came from??? It is derived from the word fanatical, look up that definition if you want, but it in no way means being a pessimistic jack wagon about your team.

  31. Mike C Says:

    So many people (many of the same that are B!tchin now) gave the Bucs no chance in the 2020 playoffs. “Kc will kill us” “New Orleans is going to kill us” and it is the same Pessimistic jerks that say the same spit over and over, no matter how good or bad the Bucs do these same tools come on and talk smack.

  32. Mike C Says:

    And Couch… you know the bucs won’t make the playoffs….. Bro you don’t KNOW anything! If you “know” they are not going to make the playoffs, then why not place all your money on that bet???

  33. Buc1987 Says:


  34. UKBuccaneer Says:

    Before the season we had a load of naysayers here predicting a 4-5 win season. Actual fans would kill to see the bucs in the postseason with another NFC south title. 3 in a row – something they’ve never done.

  35. Mike Johnson Says:

    No team with a losing record should be allowed to go to any playoffs. They should be at home with the rest of us sitting on the couch watching winners play.

  36. mark2001 Says:

    Playoff percentages…good. Chances of getting BBQ’ed in the first round….100%. Chance of a lower half draft pick in that case? 100%. Chance of finding a franchise QB in the lower half of the first round? About 5%.

  37. mark2001 Says:

    Newsflash… There won’t be a franchise QB in the lower half of the first round. The Packers might draft one, among the truly needy teams. Love’s arm on the deep ball is about as bad as Trasks.

  38. Couch Fan Says:

    Fanatical… fanatical about what? The Bucs? And the Bucs are what? A footabll team. And they do what? Play football games. Correct? So logically a fan of a football team wants their team to win. Fanatical about the Bucs winning. If you dont care about winning then you arent a fan, you are a cheerleader. Now again, stop telling other people how to be a fan. Just shake those pom poms for us since thats the only thing you seem to care about.

  39. Dave Pear Says:

    Todd the good neighbor but horrible head coach makes the Bucs chances of earning a division title 0.00%.

    Unless the John McKay joke comes true of course.

  40. Mike C Says:

    Couch just act like chicken little, you make my point for me. It is a Game, if you are a fan of a game you are ” acting like a idiot ” much like people who cheer for “wrestling ” they are fans of it, I find it stupid, however you won’t find a “stupid” wrestling fan saying his favorite wrestler sucks and can’t possibly win…. you are a bad fan.
