[261] BREAKING: NFL SUSPENDS MIKE EDWARDS & ANTONIO BROWN

12/3/2021
The NFL and NFLPA agreed to a suspension of three games without pay for both Mike Edwards and Antonio Brown for misleading the league with regards to their vaccination status. As we predicted at the start of the season, the NFL's protocols are meant to punish dissenters rather than stop the spread of coronavirus. Ralph goes through the game film from Indianapolis, which showed the Buccaneers played much more physical. The refs had a C performance. The Buccaneers receivers were solid,...

[260] Molly was right: Bucs beat the Colts by a little

11/30/2021
THAT was an entertaining game. The Bucs should have been up by 20 to be sure, but they couldn't get it together in the first half. While our expectations are high for the team, we have to remember that last season was not all sunshine and rainbows. We went through a lot of pain to get to the Super Bowl, and that made the victory that much sweeter. It feels like the team is coming together again this year. You wouldn't think we'd have growing pains when we're the same players as last year....

[259] A house divided: Will the Colts lose by a little or A LOT?

11/27/2021
The Colts put a whooping on the Bills last week, but what does it actually mean? After watching the game, it was clear the Bills lost that game. The Colts simply capitalized on their mistakes. There's something to be said for that, to be sure, but what are the chances of a repeat this week against the Buccaneers? We both agree it's slim. Tom Brady has said football starts after Thanksgiving, and here we are. The Colts lead the league in rushing, while the Bucs have the best rushing defense....

[258] VICTORY TUESDAY! Buccaneers demoralize the New York Giants on primetime

11/24/2021
The Buccaneers got a much-needed victory against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. We won't lie... we were worried about the team after last week's loss to Washington. But the way the Bucs beat up on the Giants has quelled any doubt we had. Ralph repents! Who should get the game ball? Steve McLendon for his first career interception? Tom Brady for his offensive prowess? Gronk for the energy he brings? The defense for its domination? There's really no wrong answer. The Giants...

[257] Unsubstantiated allegations AB faked his vax card. Could that be what went wrong at WFT??

11/19/2021
Tom Brady was OFF this week. Missed 10 wide open receivers. TEN. That's 1/3 of his pass plays. It was like what happened in New Orleans: everyone was in a fog. But the offensive line played well. We had 10 receivers WIDE OPEN. Their defense was bad. But Tom checked down instead of throwing to those guys. And then it came out: the TBT received allegations from a disgruntled employee that AB's girlfriend had asked the employee to obtain fake vaccine cards for AB. The disgruntled employee, a...

[256] Washington Football Team topples the Bucs?! Afterthoughts.

11/16/2021
What in the heck happened??? We spitball. The offense lacked energy and cohesion. The defense couldn't get a stop when we needed it most. The game plan was too rigid and was apparent it wasn't working there was no adjustment. The good that came out of this week: Vita wasn't seriously hurt. The Cardinals lost to the Panthers, which may help us down the road with seeding. The Saints lost. Atlanta was embarrassed by the Cowboys. The Buccaneers certainly have some kinks to work out but the...

[255] BUCCANEERS ARE BACK! Washington Football Team game preview

11/13/2021
The Buccaneers return from the bye to travel to Fedex field, where they will take on the Football Team. This should go much differently than when we saw them in the playoffs. First and foremost, we are prepared for running quarterback Taylor Heinicke. Secondly, there no one on the offense, with the exception of the offensive line, that stands out. The defense has slipped dramatically this season, ranking 27th in both points and yards allowed, and 18th in sack rate. The Buccaneers will be...

[254] Ralph GOES OFF on the Aaron Rodgers situation, current state of the NFL

11/12/2021
This episode is a little more charged than we like to go, but enough is enough. The Aaron Rodgers situation is a case of low status males in sports media using their platform to demand compliance. Dissenters, like Rodgers, cannot be tolerated. What's even more absurd is that an NFL player KILLED a woman while this was going on - she burned alive, along with her dog - and Aaron Rodgers vaccination status was more important to the corporate media. How utterly batshit insane have things...

[253] New Orleans Saints game film review

11/5/2021
While the Buccaneers were flagged for what felt like an exorbitant number of penalties, in reality the Saints only scored three points off of penalties. Overall, the one that hurt us the most was the holding call on Ross Cockrell. The Buccaneers were the benefactors of seven non-calls in a complete turn of events. In general, this game was not our best showing. I wouldn't go as far to say it was Keystone Cops-esque, but it was like the team's brain was foggy at times. While the game did not...

[252] Afterthoughts: Buccaneers fall to the Zebras (and the Saints win)

11/2/2021
Has NFL officiating ever been worse than this year?? Between the BS roughing the passer call on Gholston (which negated Winfield's interception), the taunting call on Devin White, and the lack of calls against the Saints, those zebras can eff allllllll the way off. Still, the Bucs were in it until Brady's devastating interception in the last two minutes. He'll be sitting on this loss over the bye, and will take it out in our Week 10 matchup against the Washington Football Team. --- Send in...

[251] Is the New Orleans game a REVENGE game?!?

10/30/2021
Who wants revenge more: Sean Payton, Jameis Winston, or the Buccaneers? Sean Payton's franchise quarterback got retired by the Bucs. Jameis Winston is facing his former team for the first time as a starter. The Buccaneers were swept by the Saints in the regular season last year, and while they exacted their revenge in the playoffs, was it enough? Or does the Buccaneers defense want a piece of Jameis as payback for all the games that he lost them? Jameis plays a very different role as...

[250] Game film review: Chicago Bears. THESE FOOLS JUST GAVE UP!

10/28/2021
If you like what we do and want to support the show, please consider a monthly donation: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/support After the game, we determined Leonard Fournette deserved the game ball. But after review of the game film, Ralph determined the offensive line, in fact, won us that game and thus deserved that game ball. Donovan Smith boasted afterward that he made #99 his son. The game film determined that was the truth. The Buccaneers receivers had a few dropped passes,...

[249] WE'RE BAAAACK. Afterthoughts on the Chicago Bears game & where the heck we've been.

10/25/2021
The Chicago Bears game was a glorious, glorious beatdown. We've been on the other side of those types of games too many times, so enjoy it, Bucs fans! The defense showed resiliency even while missing many starters, including Lavonte David, Carlton Davis III, and Sean Murphy-Bunting. The offense had a record-setting day, with Tom Brady scoring his 600th passing touchdown, the only NFL player to ever do so. We've been MIA the last few weeks due to a variety of reasons. Thanks for all of those...

[248] Afterthoughts: Tampa Bay Buccaneers crush the Miami Dolphins

10/12/2021
It's about what we expected. This game is what the Patriots game should have been had the receivers caught the damn ball. The Buccaneers played a complete game. Miami, to their credit, played hard and showed flashes. However, the Buccaneers did not get out unscathed. Lavonte David suffered a high ankle sprain after Ndamukong Suh rolled up on his ankle. Tom Brady could be seen icing his thumb on the sideline. It doesn't appear it will affect his availability this Thursday when the Bucs face...

[247] The Bucs should have dominated the Patriots & WILL dominate the Dolphins

10/8/2021
The score against the Patriots was not as lopsided as it should have been. Between the Buccaneers receivers dropping seven passes, OJ Howard's abysmal blocking and the refs blowing some calls, the score should have been closer to Ralph's prediction of 45-10. The Buccaneers defense did a lot of good things, even with the injured secondary. To be sure, Richard Sherman was lost at times, but he did as well as could be expected. Patriots quarterback Mac Jones had no chance against the Bucs pass...

[246] Bucs beat the New England Patriots in Tom Brady's return to Gillette Stadium

10/5/2021
The defense really secured this one for the team. Joe Tryon-Shoyinka got two sacks. Richard Sherman recovered a fumble punched out by Antoine Winfield, Jr. William Gholston and Shaquil Barrett also showed up. The Bucs allowed -1 yards net rushing by the Patriots. There was a high cost to this game, however, as the Buccaneers lost Carlton Davis III and Antoine Winfield, Jr. to injury. Winfield's return should be imminent, although probably not before Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins as...

[245] Rams film review & New England Patriots game preview

10/1/2021
The refs were absolutely atrocious during the Rams game. There were several no-calls on personal foul penalties that would have given the Bucs favorable field position. Rob Gronkowski was targeted by Jalen Ramsey in the endzone on one such foul. Rams QB Matt Stafford played at an elite-level. He may be a force to be reckoned with with this monstrous Rams team around him. We will see them again in the playoffs. The Buccaneers signed Richard Sherman to a one-year deal. Sherman will bolster the...

[244] Tampa Bay Buccaneers fall to the Los Angeles Rams - SEE YOU IN JANUARY, SUCKAS

9/28/2021
Did the Rams just make a fatal mistake? Don't they know Tom Brady feeds off these types of losses come playoffs? We can safely say the Buccaneers brought their C-game, whereas the Rams brought their A-game. The Rams had this game circled on the calendar. There were celebrities in attendance: the cast of Ted Lasso, Halsey, Mike Tyson, Kate Hudson, Rob Lowe and the Kardashians. This game appeared to mean more to them than it did to the Buccaneers. You would think it was a Super Bowl game. The...

[243] Dallas Cowboys Game Film Review & LA Rams Preview

9/24/2021
This is the toughest opponent we've faced so far, and we were conflicted on our score predictions. The Rams defense is tough, but the Colts put up a fight in week 2, only falling by 3 points in the end. The Buccaneers will face a former coach in Raheem Morris, who is now the Rams defensive coordinator. The offense has remained largely the same from last year, with the exception of Matt Stafford who was acquired in a trade with Detroit. The offense will prove to be a challenge for the...

[242] 2-0, baby! Bucs victory over the Atlanta Falcons

9/20/2021
The game felt close briefly, but the Buccaneers clinched the game thanks to not one but two pick-sixes by Mike Edwards. Tom Brady had five touchdowns and broke his own record of most games with 30+ points. TE Rob Gronkowski also had a record breaking day. The refs were horrible, as usual. What was the taunting penalty against Edwards? They also gave the Falcons 3 points when they threw multiple flags before the half, which were all nonsense. Regardless of any missteps, the Buccaneers won...
