CONGRATULATIONS - Keith Kunzig 'Big Nasty'

You've likely seen Kunzig in full-face paint and a larger than life getup, including a Super Bowl trophy belt, walking around Raymond James Stadium or in the tailgate lots at any given Bucs home game. He not only puts on the persona in support of the Buccaneers, but also uses his notoriety for good around the community. He created the national "Drugs Are Nasty" program and hosts a "Nasty for a Day" tailgate experience at each home game as a means of raising money in the fight against drug abuse..

"I can't explain the joy I get from being able to use the 'Big Nasty' persona as a platform to do good in our community," said Kunzig.

BuccaneersFan.com has always known that Keith was one of the best super-fans, not just in Tampa Bay, but in the entire NFL. Now, he's getting the national recognition he deserves.
Kunzig, "Big Nasty," will be named into the Ford "Hall of Fans," as one of the NFL's best at cheering on his team:!

Rob Gronkowski offers hilarious take on catching Tom Brady fade passes

Gronk has classic, hilarious take on catching Brady's fade passes originally aired on NBC Sports Boston

“That back-shoulder fade route is something Brady and Gronk perfected during nine seasons in New England, so it's no surprise that they're working their magic again with the Bucs -- and when asked about it Wednesday, Gronk's take was both classic and absolutely hilarious.

"It's like a saying my mom used to say: It must be maple syrup because butter don't drizzle like that."

Wait... what? How does that make sense, Gronk?

"You don't got much time to react, and syrup drizzles; you've got to make that play. And a stick of butter, it's a block. You've got to put it in the microwave to melt it, that just takes too long."

Got it. That clears it right up.

Bucs' 2019 Ring of Honor inductee

"Rondé Barber personified greatness on and off the field during his 16 seasons as a Buccaneer," said Owner/Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer. "His achievements are as impressive as they are long, but Rondé’s most defining qualities were his ultra-competitive nature, his passion for this game, and his love of the Tampa Bay community."

Can The BUCS Make it Sustainable?

Our Buccaneers have been a smashing success so far.

The season plan is working. Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still sailing towards a Super Bowl opportunity, the marriage of Tampa and Brady has been a success.

Brady has raised our championship odds from wishful to potential – which is the focus of all fans. Looking at the fiasco in New England you can see Brady’s decision to ditch Foxborough for Tampa Bay has been very validated.

Currently the Buccaneers lead the NFL in overall DVOA due to Bowles dominating defense and an offense that has steadily sailing a course to victior.

With Brady, the Buccaneers are currently the most volatile team in the league (and now we have Antonio Brown added as a new threat). The BUCS are the only ‘legitimate’ Super Bowl contender that needs a particular set of circumstances working towards the Super Bowl. With three or four other contenders who can, as a whole, on both sides of the field, can plot a gameplan at the current level that the Bucs can in any given matchup.

Protect Brady, and WE WIN. It’s as simple of a battle plan as that.

Tony Dungy joins Pro Football Hall of Fame selection Committee!

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Trustees has approved Tony Dungy to fill an at-large vacancy on the Hall’s Selection Committee.

The first African American head coach to win a Super Bowl, Dungy was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016 following a 13-year coaching career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-2001) and the Indianapolis Colts (2002-08). Dungy posted an overall record of 148-79 as a head coach. He also served as a defensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers (1984-88) and Minnesota Vikings (1992-95).

Still "LIMITED" Bucs fans are allowed at home games in Raymond James!

As we enter Week 8 of the 2020 NFL regular season, some NFL teams are openly allowing fans into stadiums, while others are still playing games without anyone in attendance.

Attending games at stadiums across the country depends on where and when, and guidelines vary from state to state regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the level of COVID-19 cases. With continued health concerns, and threat based on a presidential election result lockdown, during the coronavirus pandemic, many teams focuses on continued limited seating for fans.

Tampa Bay, which has five home games remaining on our schedule, will have a max capacity of 25% for fans as that is the maximum allowed under NFL and CDC guidelines. During the New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Raymond James Stadium Sunday, November 8th, the Buccaneers will only allow approximentally 16,000 (stadium can hold 74,512) spectators to attend the game.

Citing concern for the health and safety of players, fans, staff and the community, the Bucs headquarters communicate that it’s still too soon to play an NFL game in Tampa Bay with open-seating fans in attendance during the COVID-19 pandemic.


BuccaneersFan.com will be hosting several events at ***FACING SET-BACKS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) LOCATION IS PENDING***. for fan crazyness. Super Bowl LV, the 55th Super Bowl and the 51st modern-era National Football League (NFL) championship game, will decide the league champion for the 2020 NFL season. The game is scheduled to be played on February 7, 2021, in TAMPA, FLORIDA. This will be the fifth Super Bowl hosted by the Tampa Bay area and the third one held at our Raymond James Stadium. The game will be televised nationally by CBS. It will be the fourth time that the Super Bowl is in the same state in back-to-back years with Super Bowl LIV taking place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Our Plan for Success!
