NFL.com Still Finds A Way To Crap On Bucs

May 16th, 2024

NFL.com not down with Bucs in primetime.

Hey Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht, Joe has another receipt for ya.’

So the NFL, as Al Michaels would say, did the Bucs a solid and gave the Bucs four primetime games this fall.

Did NFL scheduling guru Howard Katz forget Tom Brady retired?

Now this offseason, Licht has admitted he’s getting sick of #NFLMedia shatting on the Bucs every chance they get. Joe doesn’t blame him.

But in a matter of minutes after the NFL released the 2024 schedule giving the Bucs all sorts of respect, boom. NFL.com finds a way to crap on the cake.

Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com decided to list the top-10 primetime games this fall. So you’d think maybe Bergman would find a Bucs game worth watching, right?

Nope. Of the top-10 primetime games this fall in Bergman’s eyes, none involved the Bucs.

Bucs at Dixie Chicks? Crows at Bucs? Bucs at Chiefs? Bucs at Cowboys? Nah, why would anyone want to watch one of those games?

Bergman even added six “honorable mention” games that are worth your time. Nope. None include the Bucs.

So in Bergman’s top 16 primetime games — 16! — the Bucs, in his eyes, you may as well do your fantasy research instead.

    Amen ^^^

  3. Dave Pear Says:

    NFL shows respect to the Bucs by crapping on them.

    These two headlines are two threads apart.

    OK.

    I say- neither matters. Go play the games. Innovate on offense. De complexity on defense. Let the chips fall.

    Go play the games. Innovate on offense. De-complexify on defense. Let the chips fall.

    These two headlines are two threads apart.

    Dudes who type for a living at NFL.com (which is based in Los Angeles) do not have one iota of influence or power over the schedule which is produced by the highest-level suits at NFL headquarters on Park Avenue in Manhattan.

    That’s like saying the truck drivers for Budweiser designed, planned and implemented the trans Bud Lite commercial last year.

  6. Dave Pear Says:

    Maybe Jeremy Bergman crapped on the Bucs. The NFL slotted the Bucs for 4 prime time games.

    Jeremy Bergman is not the NFL unless I missed something big.

  7. BillyBucco Says:

    Im starting to think Dave Pear is the only person on the planet who thinks the Bucs defense is too complex.
    So glad you don’t play.
    I do understand why it’s complex for you.
    Cynthia Freuland projects the Bucs to win 7.8 games.
    How do you win .8 of a game?
    So ridiculous!!!!!!!

  8. MadMax Says:

    Yep we suck….its all good….and every game we play is against a future SB champion…thats the mindset we need. If we start 2-0, we need to play like we’re 0-2

  9. Evo Says:

    JOES.. please remember this and post the record of those prime time games. We non rose colored glasses bucs fans know. Our team usually doesn’t show up in those games. So please post the record for those games at the end of the year! I hope we have a winning record for those games.. but it feels like 0- for to me. And that’s why we aren’t in the top 10. I hope I’m wrong.

    Jeremy Bergman – Who is he 😂 We are all keeping receipts now.

    Go Bucs!

  11. 76 bucsfan46 Says:

    Bucs improve their record by 2 games and post 11-6 record and extend their NFC South title to 4 strait seasons.

  12. Bucben61 Says:

    ESPN disdain the bucs:

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    The Bucs will suffer three divisional losses in 2024, largely because they’ll have three divisional matchups in a span of four weeks sandwiched between games against the Eagles, Ravens, Chiefs and 49ers. Those early divisional games feature two contests in four weeks against the Falcons, whom many have pegged as the NFC South favorite this year, with quarterback Kirk Cousins and former Bucs head coach Raheem Morris at the helm. Morris also worked with Bucs offensive coordinator Liam Coen on the Rams’ staff. Read more from Jenna Laine

  13. Ha-Ha-Ha Says:

    Why does anybody pay attention to these national columns? They’re just clickbait designed for controversy. Nobody ever believes that they’re accurate.

  14. D Cone Says:

    1) Two top tier QB’s or a battle between brothers
    2) Rodgers back Home in Bay Area. Jets 2023 Hype revisited.
    3) Battle for Texas.
    4) Stafford back to Detroit. Rematch of of one of the best Playoff Games in 2923
    5) Jackson vs Maholmes. Enough said.

    Every game in the top 10 has a story. Premier Match Ups or Returns /Revenge but they have a story.

    If it comes down to the last week and an NFCS needs a win to get to 8-9 or 9-8 to win the Division the game will get Flexed but won’t come close to a top 10 game.

    Mayfield was the story and Media Darling last season. This season he is just a pretty good QB playing in the lowly NFC South. Nothing to see here.

    Even Denver vs Saints has a Story

  15. BakerFan Says:

    You can win 6 games if you dominate your division, Why Not? I really don’t see anything special about the other 3, so that is the mindset the Bucs should have. DOMINATE YOUR DIVISION. Then win the games you should and lose the ones you are projected to lose, that gives you 11-12 wins with no realistic path for the others to catch you.

  16. rrsrq Says:

    We have seen the Bucs look horrible in primetime, the teams that they are playing have the potential to make the Bucs look horrible… Hopefully, they are ready, maybe the youth on the team is not afraid of the lights. Players from Bama, Oregon, and Georgia will not be afraid

  17. SlyPirate Says:

    If they hate those games, they’re really gonna hate the Super Bowl.

  18. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Honestly, I hate it when we get primetime games. I almost always have plans during those games. My fav are the 1pm games.

  19. View from 132 Says:

    Imagine getting paid to make a list of games played months from now based on expected watch ability. Dude is lucky he isn’t homeless.

  20. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    If Baker played against defenses like the Texans, Jaguars or the playoff Eagles the Bucs would look all world since he plays well against poor defenses but since we don’t he doesn’t play well against even decent defenses we’ll never get much cred as long as he and Bowles are on this team. We barely got much even with Brady and others on this team.

  21. Brandon Says:

    Who cares what this dude thinks?

  22. garro Says:

    Wow! Did the Glazers forget to invite him to the birthday party? Fart in NFL.coms elevator? Call Kay Adams a wordy dird?

    Geez that is border line criminal Joe!

    Go Bucs!
