I think the Bucs will take the ball if they win, and will probably get the ball even if they don’t win the toss. The odds are 53% that the team that defers wins the game. So consequently teams usually defer. Vegas lists the odds of the team deferring for the Superbowl at 73%. The last two Superbowls the team deferred, the 49ers and the Rams.
So either way there’s a very good chance the Bucs will get the ball. The only caveat is that if the Chiefs do their homework they will realize that the Bucs want the ball, so if the Chiefs win the toss they could take the ball just to screw with the Bucs’ plans.
The Bucs’ crisp white jerseys will be paired with pewter pants and black socks. Tampa Bay has worn the combination five times this year, including the regular and postseason. What’s more, is the Bucs have won each of those times. They debuted the combo for the first time in Week Six at home in a dominating win over the Green Bay Packers. Fittingly, they last wore the uniform in the aforementioned postseason rematch with the Packers, this time in Lambeau for the NFC Championship and again, came out with the win.
I understand the superstitious side of it. We are actually 5-0 in this combo!! 3-0 regular season and 2-0 postseason.
However as fans you know when you try and get a feel or foresee a game in your head? I just felt us in our reds and KC in their whites gave me a much better feeling. It also would have added to the feeling of the Bucs at home. Now KC is in their home reds. Just one more small thing to neutralize the RJS situation.
Then the SB itself can be a myth of its own. Denver wanted to avoid orange curse. We are 1-0 in our reds and KC won vs Minn n SF in their reds but lost in the whites vs GB. So it feeds their fan base psyche for those that believe in this stuff.
Regardless of my ” vibe” I’m going to trust the organization and how they feel. Obviously the team who plays better should win but as fans sometimes you can’t help but let these quirky things get you thinking.
Since the logo switch in 1997 I don’t think they’ve ever worn white jerseys for a home night game (not counting pre-season). Always thought the best combo for home night games was red jerseys/white pants (Dolphins 1997, Oilers 1998, Seahawks 2008).
It would clash with the Chiefs white jersey/red pants but the Bucs actually wore this combo vs the Chiefs in 1999 and the Chiefs wore all white.
So now we can’t find the white Brady SB jersey anywhere! If I’m going to spend that kind of money on a jersey, I want it to match what they wear in the game.
How ridiculous that these aren’t available. Of course every website out there now partners with the Fanatics monopoly so they are out of stock at multiple retailers. Normally I love Fanatics but they had to know this was coming!
My favorite jersey/ pants combo is the red and pewter which I felt they should wear in honor of the 2002 team, but I understand Brady is all about the white and we have a good record in that combo as well.
