Completely shocked that pretty much nobody thinks Alstott deserves his number retired.

I don't think they should retire any of those numbers.   But if they retire Brooks or Barber's numbers, they should definitely retire Alstott's as well.      And Lynch too.

No on 40 and 47.  They were great players and fan favorited but you have to be pretty selective when it comes to retiring numbers and they weren't st that level.

Lynch was better than Barber.   

The big 3 on defense back then were Sapp, Brooks and Lynch.

Barber and Rice were great, but they were a notch below those 3 in their prime.

You only retire numbers of guys who make it into the Hall of Fame. Otherwise you would run out of numbers rather quickly.

Anyone who makes the hall of fame should probably have it retired .

That means everyone on that list except Alstott.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Simeon Rice had 68 sacks in 5 years while here and played a bigger role in our Super Bowl run and victory than guys like Lynch or Alstott.....but I don't see his number being mentioned. The guy is ranked 13th all time in career sacks with 122. He seems more deserving imo.

Simeon Rice said things he probably shouldn't have and this might be the price for it.

And for the people saying no to Alstott... WTF?

I'm in favor of the notion that if they make the hall of fame, they get their number retired. Even Mike Alstott, who if they grade him as a fullback has a fair shot.

Alstott was a fan favorite, and one of my favorite Bucs of all time. He was so entertaining to watch and his brute running style became the foundation of playing Buc Ball. However, his stats and accomplishments over his career are not anywhere close to extraordinary. I don't see him being in the HoF or getting his number retired.

Alstott and Lynch, while fan favorites, will not sniff the HOP, therefore no retirement parties for them.
