Ok so I even dare to ask this question. Why have we never ever ever ever ever ever returned a kickoff for a touchdown? Can someone who has seen every bucs game tell me why? Really though PR what are they doing to finally fix this I know they try to fix it every year but obviously are not doing enough to make it happen. They should really watch some tape on how the best teams in history have done it and apply it on the field sounds easier than done but to have never been able to do it in the 30 plus years we have been a team has to be a curse of some sort. I cant figure it out I know i am not the only one. What is PRs take on this and everyone else chime in too.

I really don't think that there is an honest answer. So many years, so many attempts, so many players and coaches. it defies logic. It will happen when it happens. It's almost a moot point.

Its because we always have a big need on the team, so we never try to bring in a specialist.  We never had real break away speed at KR, they were all 4.5 guys at best, a step too slow to go the distance and you need more speed to beat an angle.

The Bucs like the distinction of being the only team in the NFL to have never returned a kickoff for a TD, it's an honor noone can take away thanks to loose shoelaces and slow developing blocks!

Even WHEN it does happen the annoucers will then say the bucs have only returned 1 kickoff in  how ever many tries!

I cringe every game waiting for the inevitable remark that the Bucs have never returned a kick off for a touchdown.  Anyone know how many kickoffs we've had that haven't resulted in a regular season touchdown?  I think I heard last year but can't recall.  I know we've had like 5 in preseason games.
