[289] Bucs schedule release, signings, and NFC South rumblings

5/17/2022
The NFL released the schedule last week. The Buccaneers have five primetime games once again, although theirs is one of the toughest. The schedule includes a 9:30 a.m. game in Munich, Germany against the Seahawks. We'll match up against the NFC West and AFC North this year. Ndamukong Suh may sign with another team this year. The Browns and Raiders are potential landing spots, but the Bucs are not out of the running either. The Buccaneers signed three players after rookie minicamp, including...

[288] Tampa Bay Buccaneers Draft Recap

5/2/2022
The Buccaneers shocked Bucs nation by trading away their first-round pick in the NFL Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They gained the first overall pick in the second round and selected DE Logan Hall. In another surprising move, they picked up G Luke Goedeke at with the 57th pick. In Round 3, they snagged RB Rachaad White. With the first pick in the 4th Round they selected TE Cade Otton. Jason Licht triggered the Bucs fan base by selecting a punter with the 28th pick in the 4th Round, Jake...

[287] BUCCANEERS DRAFT PREVIEW

4/26/2022
Jason Licht and Co. have done a phenomenal job in years past of building a team and acquiring depth that we are now, for the second year in a row, drafting the best available player rather than drafting for need. As you know, we do not follow college and therefore are ill equipped to evaluate players coming into the draft. However, we can look at the Buccaneers roster and tell you where we are due for an upgrade. The most obvious place, in our opinion, is at the tight end position. We...

[286] How successful will Todd Bowles be as head coach??

4/20/2022
Ralph is uneasy about the coaching change at One Buc Place. Between Todd Bowles' win-loss record and penchant for firing underlings, Ralph is hesitant about celebrating the move. Molly would agree but for the culture and staff installed under Bruce Arians being mostly in-tact. How much say will Bowles have in the day-to-day of the team, including the offense? What about personnel decisions? There are a lot of unknowns. We discuss the additions of Keanu Neal, Logan Ryan, Pat O'Connor,...

[285] Bruce Arians STEPS DOWN as head coach, Todd Bowles to take over

4/1/2022
In a move that shocked the football world, Bruce Arians announced he would step down as head coach of the Buccaneers, moving to a position in the front office. Todd Bowles will secede him as the new head coach. The Buccaneers made it official by giving Bowles a five-year contract. BA will stay within the organization as a Senior Football Consultant. The Glazers announced during the press conference today BA would be inducted into the team's Ring of Honor this season. BA's announcement has...

[284] Bucs lock up Leonard Fournette, William Gholston, OL depth and more

3/30/2022
Free agency continues and the Buccaneers have locked up two key free agents: Leonard Fournette and William Gholston. They've also signed OL Fred Johnson, a former Bengal, and T Josh Wells. The Bucs have not yet reached agreements with Ndamukong Suh and Rob Gronkowski, although they are reportedly in talks with both. JPP still remains a free agent, as is Gio Bernard, Pat O'Connor, Steve McClendon. The defensive line is currently a little thin, and it remains to be seen whether the Bucs will...

[283] Bucs Free Agency Frenzy! Logan Ryan, Shaq Mason, Russell Gage, and more!

3/20/2022
This free agency period is bananas. The Buccaneers re-sign stud C Ryan Jensen. They bring in Shaq Mason in a trade with the Patriots (an absolute steal, btw). The Bucs sign S Logan Ryan, a Tom Brady guy. They also bring in Russell Gage with a phone call from Tom. Breshad Perriman is back. Chris Godwin is now under contract. Shaq Barrett and Mike Evans restructure their contracts to give us some wiggle room, and Cam Brate takes a paycut. We did lose several guys. S Jordan Whitehead went to...

[282] TOM BRADY IS BACK! Ryan Jensen, Carlton Davis also returning for the Bucs.

3/15/2022
Free agency starts with a bang for the Bucs, who not only get the GOAT back in a surprise un-retiring, but also retained star Center Ryan Jensen AND CB Carlton Davis. Both players were highly sought-after in free agency for their positions. The Buccaneers have not worked out a deal with S Jordan Whitehead, who is being eyed by Bucs fans as the next priority in free agency. Will Rob Gronkowski come back for one more season with Tom? He has reportedly been working out at the team facility...

[281] Happy Franchise Tag Day Eve!

3/8/2022
The deadline to franchise tag players is tomorrow. Who will the Bucs tag? Chris Godwin? Carlton Davis? Jordan Whitehead? Buccaneers make some minor changes to their staff, including Larry Foote moving from OLB coach to ILB coach. Tom Brady has made cryptic comments about his future in the NFL. SO YOU'RE TELLING US THERE'S STILL A CHANCE??? No. There isn't. Kyle Trask looks more and more likely as the Bucs next quarterback, especially with the current draft class and the small free agent...

[280] Ali Marpet announces retirement, Carmen Vitali also jumping ship

3/1/2022
We have some sad personal news. The Buccaneers lose another key piece in Ali Marpet, who announced his retirement Sunday after seven years with the team. It makes it all the more vital we re-sign free agents Alex Cappa, Aaron Stinnie and Ryan Jensen to ensure continuity on the offensive line. Buccaneers staff writer and social media personality Carmen Vitali has announced her departure from the team. It is unclear where Carmen will head next, but we wish her the best. Is this a rebuild?...

[279] Super Bowl afterthoughts

2/16/2022
The Super Bowl happened... That's about it. It was kind of boring. We expected a comeback by Joe Burrow, but the game ended on some bizarre penalties and then a 4 & out by Cincinnati. Ralph recounts how we got to the modern halftime model. We discuss the current questions surrounding race in the NFL. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/buccaneers-observer/support

[277] What went wrong against LA? Plus, Schefter blows his wad on Brady's retirement announcement.

2/1/2022
The Rams' final drive was a disappointing showing by the Buccaneers' defense (like we had to tell you that). However, it wasn't the 40+ yard bomb to Cooper Kupp, but the play before that sealed the Bucs' fate. SMB was covering Kupp and inexplicably fell down, leaving Mike Edwards to move up and tackle Kupp. It was Jamel Dean's effort, or lack thereof, that allowed Kupp to get out of bounds and stop the clock. Had Dean tackled Kupp in bounds, the clock would have continued to run. The Rams...

[277] Bucs fall to the Rams in the divisional round

1/25/2022
What a heartbreaking rollercoaster that was. Until late in the third quarter, it seemed like the Buccaneers were doomed. But the defense kept us in it, and in it, and in it. The offense made plays when it needed them and put enough points on the board to tie us up. Then Matt Gay struck with an assist by Cooper Kupp. The team may have been defeated, but they went down swinging. Fans should be proud, and those guys should hold their heads high. Next season is gonna be fire. --- Send in a...

[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...

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...
