Bucs Nation’s open thread for Sunday’s conference games.

In the second game of Sunday’s conference championships, the Green Bay Packers are at the San Francisco 49ers. It’ll be the No. 1 seed against the No. 2 seed. The 49ers got the best of the Packers during the regular season, beating Green Bay 37-8. How will Aaron Rodgers and the offense respond as they attempt to better San Francisco’s tough defense?

Keeping talent in the NFC might be the way to go for Tampa Bay.

The Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers are getting set to face-off for a trip to Miami and Super Bowl 54. No matter who gets to make the trip, both rosters have players who will be unrestricted free-agents in less than two months.

As usual, here’s our look at one such candidate from each side of the field.

AFC Championship Round Free-Agent Watch: Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

Winner moves on to the Super Bowl. Losers go home. Players from each side, may be moving to Tampa this summer.

The Tennessee Titans have surprised a lot of people not named Evan Winter with their post-season run up to this point. Either Cinderella’s story gets to continue, or the Kansas City Chiefs will move one step further than they did in last year’s post-season.

Either way, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could look to each roster looking to steal some...

Believe it or not, there *is* a middle ground in the Jameis debate

Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images

It’s just not a popular “side” to take because you can’t really scream about it on Twitter.

I don’t care what the Buccaneers do with Jameis Winston.

OK, maybe that’s not entirely true, but what I should say is this: I don’t have an opinion on what they should do with him. I’m not leaning one way or the other. I just don’t know.

If they bring him back on a transition or franchise tag, I’ll understand why. If he comes back on a...

This episode isn’t about tearing down Derrick Henry. We are only discussing all of the factors that have contributed to his amazing run and how they have helped shape today’s (as in right now) narrative that “pounding the rock” is still the ultimate method for...

How the 2019 College Football Playoff Championship Game impacts Tampa Bay’s draft plans.

Some prospect shuffling might be coming after the final college football game of the season.

Every scout and draft expert will tell you the same thing when it comes to evaluating NFL Draft prospects. Trust the film. The NFL Scouting Combine is cool, but trust the film. Hype is great, but trust the film. Personality is a plus, but trust the film. Get it?

Well, a good amount of players expected to land in this year’s draft class put one last bit of film...

Keeping Winston (for 2020) might be best for the Buccaneers

Looking at the other side of the coin.

Our own James Yarcho wrote a great piece earlier this week on why it may be best for the Buccaneers to move on from Jameis Winston. I highly suggest reading it before you read this, but you do you. I won’t be angry with whatever route you decide to take.

James brings up some great points in his piece, but the one point that cannot be...

Well-deserved honors for the Buccaneers’ top two picks in the 2019 draft.

The Buccaneers were well-represented when the Pro Football Writers of America (PFWA) announced its 2019 All-Rookie Team on Tuesday, with linebacker Devin White and cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting both earning spots on the defense.

White, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, got out to a slow start in the first half of the year due in large part to an illness and then...

Mocking the Buccaneers: Recent four-round projection answers a lot of questions

Reviewing Luke Easterling’s latest mock draft

For general managers like Jason Licht of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NFL Draft is an exercise in filling team needs with securing talented players who can help your franchise win for years to come.

It’s not an exact science, and it isn’t easy. Mock drafting is something most - if not all - NFL staffs do, to try and anticipate the ups and downs of the draft proceedings to gauge when they might target...

Moving on from Winston might be best for the Buccaneers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

For the long term success of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, letting Jameis Winston go may be the right move

This is a conversation that is going to be beaten into the ground until we have a definitive decision from the Bucs as to what they’re going to do, but it’s a conversation that is 100% necessary. The questions surrounding Jameis Winston and his future in Tampa Bay can not be understated or overlooked. The long and short of it is, there is no clear right...

It was a fun weekend of football.

There’s nothing like playoff football.

The second weekend of the NFL Playoffs certainly didn’t disappoint. There was another major upset, plenty of fireworks, and some great quarterback play among the NFL’s Elite Eight, which will hopefully carry into championship weekend.

But before we turn the page and move on, let’s revisit some of the best moments from the 2020 Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Potential Bucs prospects to watch for in CFP title game

Who should we be keeping an eye on in Monday night’s title game?

The 2019-20 college football season will come to an end Monday night in New Orleans, with the No. 1 LSU Tigers taking on the No. 3 Clemson Tigers for the national championship. Both teams have run through every obstacle that has been put in front of them all year long, but only one can come away with the trophy.

LSU, led by head coach Ed Orgeron, has the more impressive resume. It held...

Some big games between these two franchises. And another one could net some playoff experiences for Tampa Bay.

Has there ever been a boring game between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers? If so, I can’t remember it. Which makes sense. Because it was boring.

Anyway, the point is, there have been some extremely entertaining games between these two highly successful franchises, and this Sunday presents another opportunity to notch another...
