THE BUCS ARE POTENTIALLY BACK IN THE UK You would think that being the Bucs’ most famous British fan, I would be delighted to see my favourite team potentially returning to these shores.  Of course I am but I also understand the frustration and annoyance that these International Series games cause to the real fans, the ones who live around Tampa and own season tickets to support their team in person eight times a year.   They are now losing 12.5% of their season, one-eighth of their home games being sent to a land far away in the search for the proverbial extra dollar. Wednesday’s announcement was for four games in London and one in Mexico City and that the five teams giving up home games would be the Buccaneers, Rams, Raiders, Jaguars and Chargers.   It would make sense for one of the two Los Angeles or the Oakland team to be the host for the “Trump Wall Game” in Mexico leaving the Bucs and Jaguars almost certain to be heading to London once more.

VIDEO ARCHIVE - ON THIS DAY - DECEMBER 14th 2003 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 16 Houston Texans 3 Having just finished updating the 2003 season screens, this one is quite apt to look back at today.  The second-year Texans were no match for a suddenly rejuvinated Buccaneer defense that held them to just seven first downs and 107 yards of total offense.  Thomas Jones exceeded that on his own and Jon Gruden’s team found themselves back at 7-7 and mathematically alive in the wild-card race.  Well at least until the following Saturday anyway.
