Can you believe it, Bucs fans? The time is almost here. Your Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the first team to host the Super Bowl in their own stadium. The Bucs face a daunting task against the Chiefs, who not only already defeated Tampa Bay once this season, but also lost just one time when Patrick Mahomes was starting at quarterback. In these situations though, you can’t doubt the GOAT Tom Brady in the big moments. Tampa Bay took Kansas City’s best shot last time, and I think the second half that the Bucs played gave them the confidence to know they can beat this team. It’s going to be on Shaq Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul to take advantage of the injured tackles of the Chiefs that won’t be playing. The Bucs need to get it going with just a four-man pass rush. I expect Brady to have a big game, and it’s going to be important to exploit the Chiefs’ biggest weakness on defense, which you could argue is their linebackers. It helps too that Antonio Brown is back, but I think Rob Gronkowski or Chris Godwin could have a huge game going over the middle. Mike Evans is always a threat as well, so watch him get another touchdown. It won’t be easy, but it’s not impossible. Can the Bucs make Super Bowl history on their own field?
From reading and listening to most of the talking heads this week all picking the Chiefs, you wonder why the Bucs should even bother. But I guess they’ll show up anyway cause they have nothing better to do. (Sarcasm there).
Bucs win convincingly. I have seen this movie before. The Chefs believe all the “experts” and their hype while the Bucs just go play great football, their best game of the season and win Tampa Bay’s second Lombardi Trophy.
Jordan Whitehead is going to play through a fully torn labrum in Super Bowl LV, source said, an injury that includes additional shoulder damage. Whitehead was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but practiced fully on Friday. He’ll play in pain
Most interesting anecdote of the week. Belechick telling the Pats in 2000 that if Marshall Faulk gets 125 yards or more on the ground, the Pats are going to win the game. I bring it up because KC is super similar to the Rams. Way more dangerous and productive when Mahomes is throwing than when they are running.
Tampa either needs to slow the game down or get multiple turnovers. Preferably both.
Whatever happens its been a pleasure rooting with all of you, a smart and passionate group of people. I thought we would make the playoffs, didn’t think we’d make it this far. Extremely happy we have. Anyways, “I’ll see you on the beach.”
Dont know if it’s the game about to start of the alcohol I’ve consumed, but LETS F###INNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Dont know, it just hit me, but I can’t help but wanting to bitch slap the Kansas City Chiefs so hard right now. I’m ready to go out there and hit people.
Penalties have been huge, but take them away, and we have still played better. Most of the calls have been appropriate, with a couple ticky-tack, but KC has let it rattle them. Especially the unhinged honey-badger.
Watching Jensen get the best of someone in the superbowl for the Personal Foul makes me think he might be worth the money. He brings the nasty more than anyone I can remember on the Bucs OL.
They can’t keep up with our WRs without holding them.
Unfortunately we will almost surely see some make up calls, as the Refs probably have to “make adjustments” at halftime just like the two teams.
We all know this game is far from over. KC can come back from this and shift the momentum like they’ve done so many times before. Defense needs to keep up their intensity and play sound, disciplined football in second half. Keep him in the pocket and don’t let him get big gains with his running. Offense can’t let up either. 15 points is nothing for Chiefs to overcome. Gonna take a point total in the 30s to win this for Bucs! LFG in the second half!
Checking in at the half. Great start! Chiefs won’t lay down but the Bucs won’t either. The calls are going our way because the Chiefs defense is playing too tight. And I’ve seen a bunch of other calls that weren’t made. Whatever, gotta earn it TB! 30 minutes to glory.
It won’t get all the publicity but that kick was absolutely huge!!! Reversed the possible momentum shift. Yes only 3 points but hopefully that squelches the hope that could’ve been building for KC! Ryan Succup is the man!
Hello. I’m a very Loyal Chiefs fan here, and I would like to congratulate you on an amazing victory tonight, I think the tale of the tape will show us Reid didn’t have us ready to play again. And it showed, as a result, we got outmuscled on both sides of the ball and quite frankly got our asses kicked, I hope this is a humbling experience for our guys and shows them that nothing is certain and they are human and can be beaten. One thing I hated was all the damn jaw jacking the guys were doing leading up to the game I knew It was gonna bite them in the butt if they didn’t bring it in return and unfortunately they didn’t. My advice to them would just keep your mouth shut and play the game, let your game do the talking. Once again Congratulations to the Bucs and Brady you earned this one tonight. I hope we can play each other next year and maybe get a little payback.
Oh wow, I just watched the game. I had to wait until now, and it was not easy. I just want to tell @Bucman he rocks, because he was one of the few people to call a Bucs rout! @TheKnees, you said you would only be on board with Brady if he brought us a Super Bowl. He did!!!! Now you have to give him some praise. A spectacular accomplishment by the Bucs, as well as Tampa Bay for having a Stanley Cup, a World Series runner up, a USL championship, and a Super Bowl Championship. GREAT JOB BUCS, AND HATS OFF TO ALL OF YOUR FANS WHO DEALT WITH YEARS OF PAIN!!!
Patriots fan here. Congrats guys for winning the big one. Great defense all around. Tom and Gronk were outstanding. Really happy to see the overhyped team of KC get destroyed. I wish we meet in the Superbowl next year even though it we’ll be a miracle for us to get there. Take care of TB12, he is the best decision your organization ever made. Respect from Boston.
