[276] The Bucs host the Rams and it should be a SLUG FEST

1/22/2022
We faced the Rams in week 3 and it wasn't pretty for the Buccaneers. The Rams were more physical, Bucs receivers couldn't hang onto the ball, and the defense couldn't stop the Rams offense. But the Rams haven't seen the Playoff Buccaneers. They haven't seen the defensive backs who nearly had five picks last week. They haven't seen Suh, Vita and Barrett firing on all cylinders. And most of all, they haven't seen playoff Tom Brady. Well... Sean McVay has. 😏 It'll be a close game to be sure,...

[275] PLAYOFF BUCS ARE BACK!! Bucs advance to the Divisional Round after defeating the Eagles

1/17/2022
Bucs are back to form. This game was really not even close. The Eagles managed some garbage time touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but in reality this was a trouncing by the Buccaneers. All the Bucs playoff opponents from last year experienced PTSD watching that game. With Dallas falling to the 49ers last night, the Bucs will face the winner of the Rams/Arizona game tonight. It will be a big matchup for the Bucs next week, and either team should be a formidable opponent. A concerning...

[274] The rivalry between the Bucs and the Eagles is long and storied. Who will come out on top?

1/15/2022
Veteran Buccaneer fans know the pain of losing to the Eagles in the playoffs. It happened in the years before the Bucs made their Super Bowl appearance in 2003. It cost the team Tony Dungy. Ronde Barber righted the ship with his pick six in the NFC Championship. The victory took the Bucs to the Super Bowl, where they came away with the Lombardi. We meet again nearly 20 years later. The teams are dead even in both regular seasons matchups and playoff wins. This game will be the tie...

[273] The Bucs beat the Kittens and now prepare for the Eagles in the playoffs

1/10/2022
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers in a week 18 beat down, securing the 2nd seed in the playoffs. Mike Evans and Gronkowski balled out. Evans posted his 8th straight year with 1,000+ yard season, a new NFL record. The Philadelphia Eagles, a hated rival, are up next for the Bucs. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/support

[272] AB is exactly who we thought he was

1/8/2022
Antonio Brown's career is more notable for his bullshit than his skill. While his skill is up there with the best, the bullshit is unparalleled. He showed that again this week. Let's recap: The week before the Jets game, his people go to the Bucs front office and ask for his incentives to be guaranteed. The team says no, most obviously because AB was on pace to hit them. The Friday before the game, BA texts him to say we aren't resting in the final two weeks and will need him if he can...

[271] Bucs beat the Jets, lose Antonio Brown in dramatic fashion

1/4/2022
Molly is thankful for the distraction as the Jets were WAAAY too close to beating the Bucs in that one. A two-minute drive from the GOAT sealed the W for the Bucs. Cyril Grayson came in clutch again, causing Ralph to consider retiring the "Doink" nickname. What happened with Antonio Brown? We're getting bits and pieces from the media but nothing definitive. Bruce Arians may or may not have benched him after he refused to go in because his ankle was hurting him. Bruce Arians then may or may...

[270] Bucs came away with a win against the Panthers, but where was their energy?!

1/1/2022
To be fair, the Panthers came out with no energy and it showed. But it appeared the Bucs were feeding off their lackluster. A few guys had some oomph - Whitehead, Gholston, Stuard. But otherwise, we could have used some juice. Ralph hopes we're just saving our energy for the playoffs. Our next matchup on the way to playoffs is against the Jets. We've seen teams like the Jets before, and they were wearing red and pewter. Molly watched the matchup between the Jets and the Jags from last week...

[269] BUCCANEERS ARE NFC SOUTH CHAMPIONS

12/28/2021
This Victory Monday is a hat-and-t-shirt Victory Monday as the Buccaneers come away with the NFC South title. The Panthers didn't put up much of a fight, even against our second and third stringers. Jordan Whitehead had an outstanding game, earning the recognition of the announcers during the game. Antonio Brown was looking fresh on his return, playing 79 percent of the snaps and getting the bulk of the targets from Brady. He was targeted 15 times, which was more than the rest of the...

[268] The Saints all-22 was WORSE than we initially thought

12/24/2021
What we lacked in pass protection, we also lacked in the ability to catch passes and run without falling. The game film was worse than the initial viewing, as if that was possible. The young guys failed to show up once they were called up. The defense played well. The refs missed some calls. The play where Patrick O'Connor was injured was particularly egregious given that Grant Stuard was flagged for hitting the kicker RIGHT BESIDE O'Connor, who was being held. The Carolina game will...

[267] DISASTER: Bucs shut out by the Saints

12/21/2021
Could this have gone any worse? The Buccaneers shot themselves in the foot repeatedly with dropped passes, lost key players to injury and got shut out at home. The young guys failed to step up when we needed them most. To add insult to injury, the last came to division rivals. I hate everything. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/support

[266] The Bills all-22 showed the Bucs are in playoff-ready as we turn to the Saints

12/18/2021
The Buccaneers looked nearly flawless against the Bills, with the exception of the first offensive play and the first defensive play. After that, we made few mistakes. Leonard Fournette has taken over the bell-cow role in large part because of his pass protection. The man is a phenomenal blocker, often sacrificing his body to keep his quarterback upright. It's no wonder Brady trusts him the way he does. Fournette deserves the game ball for the offense. We got away with some holding....

[265] BUCS BEAT BILLS IN OVERTIME

12/15/2021
What. A. Game. They say all good teams win one they should have lost. When the season's over and we have another Super Bowl ring, we can point to this victory as that game. The Buccaneers, both offense and defense, were stellar in the first half. But the Bills made a run at a comeback, tying the game with 25 seconds left on the clock and taking the Bucs to overtime. The Buccaneers defense, while they let the Bills drive down the field, at least held them to a field goal and gave the offense...

[264] Double whammy: Atlanta Falcons Game Film Review & Buffalo Bills Preview

12/11/2021
It turns out the Falcons' offensive line isn't that bad. Shaq Barrett had a hard time against OL Kaleb McGary, and I daresay Barrett got beat for the first time since I've watched him. Others on the defensive line, like Ndamukong Suh and Will Gholston had good performances against the division foe. Our offensive line just dominated. Donovan Smith played hard the first half, but then just looked exhausted the second half. Nevertheless, he played an aggressive game. Both teams looked spent at...

[263] Buccaneers sweep the Falcons!!

12/7/2021
The Buccaneers have a good showing against our division rivals. The offense played great, particularly Chris Godwin who broke his own personal record for receptions in a game and topped Mark Carrier for third-most in franchise history. Leonard Fournette has emerged as a workhorse running back, a feat no back has achieved in a Bruce Arians offense. The defense demolished the Falcons. The interior defensive line deserves some recognition for this. Ndamukong Suh clocked two sacks on Matt...

[262] Bucs matchup against the Falcons will be a blowout

12/4/2021
The Falcons have changed since we saw them last Week 2: Cordarelle Patterson has proved to be a threat both in the run and passing games; and, their defense is starting to gel. Nevertheless, Tom Brady's streak will increase to 10-0 against the Falcons tomorrow. Matt Ryan will not be able to withstand the Bucs pass rush, and there aren't enough quick dump off passes in the world to lead them to victory. Their defense, while improving, will be no match for Brady. They are playing a similar...

[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...
