The schedule has some favors -- the Bucs get their bye week far later than in recent years in Week 11, giving them an extra week to prepare for a game at Atlanta against the defending NFC champions. A week later, they'll likely face chilly conditions as they go to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on Dec. 3. The other potential cold game -- at Buffalo, where the Bucs have played just once in their 41 years -- should be a mild one on Oct. 22, fortunately more fall than winter.

It's not quite the larger national platform many had thought the Bucs might have -- just one Monday night game, no Sunday night games (some games later in the season can be flexed to prime time) and in all, 12 of 16 games have 1 p.m. kickoffs, with less national audiences that later afternoon games bring.

 

Here's the schedule: September -- 10 at Miami, 17 vs. Chicago, 24 at Minnesota; October -- 1 vs. N.Y. Giants, 5 vs. New England (Thursday), 15 at Arizona, 22 at Buffalo, 29 vs. Carolina; November -- 5 at New Orleans, 12 vs. N.Y. Jets, (bye week), 26 at Atlanta; December -- 3 at Green Bay, 10 vs. Detroit, 18 vs. Atlanta (Monday), 24 at Carolina, 31 vs. New Orleans.

I'm leaning toward blaming Hard Knocks for this already. 

 

‚ÄčThe Bucs open the season on Sept. 10 at Miami, and in all, Tampa Bay's schedule is uniquely skewed with home games early and late in the year -- three of the first five are at home, as are three of the last four, creating a tough stretch in the middle of the season that has just two home games over a span of 66 days.

two 4pm games...and let's not forget the flex scheduling. Tampa got flexed a couple times last year during their hot streak!

I've been looking for an excuse to drive up and see a game at Lambeau.

 

This is the year.

Well...by that time in the season, you'll definitely know whether the drive will be worth it or not. Hopefully the drive there and back will be very much worth it!

My wife is a Packer fan, she'll want to go regardless.

Sorry to hear about that!

 

I quite understand your pain...mine is a native of Chicago...and I fucking hate the Bears. 

 

So week 2 will be quite enjoyable when Glennon leads Tampa to victory!

I'll go with 10-6 and a wild card game. No reason for it other than the Bucs are due.

Could do without the Christmas Eve game. Messes up dinner and I'm even more miserable than usual if the Bucs lose.

1) I'm in the 'less national games the better' boat. I would rather the Bucs be sneaking under the radar.

 

2) In what universe does a team draw the Super Bowl teams 3 times in a season and that is supposed to be a fair schedule? The scheduling rules should not allow any team that has one of the previous Super Bowl team in their same division to have to play the other Super Bowl team in the same schedule.

At one point though, you can't be the under the radar team...you have to step up and be that team(ex: Patriots), that everyone has picked to constantly be the winner.

I'm ready for Tampa to be that team.

Last year I was pissed when they still had the Chargers picked over Tampa the week we played them. Coming off 3 wins in a row, including KC and Sea. Disrespectful. Time to be that team that's expected to win, not the underdogs because its less pressure!

It's actually not a bad thing, as this is the 2nd year in a row that the Bucs will face the Superbowl teams 3 times. Last year they went 2-1 in those games... :)  New England is tough every year. But Superbowl or not, I don't think the Falcons scare anyone.  Just like no one was afraid of Carolina last year.  It's an NFC South thing....

They can be improved and still finish with a repeat 9-7 record with this schedule. But then again the draft is yet to happen and we don't know who the Bucs will draft this year. I save my actual won-loss prediction for the week after preseason ends.

We live in Chicago, we love the Blackhawks... live right near Wrigley Field and love the Cubs... I can even get worked up about the Bulls.

 

But the Bears?  Fuck the Bears.

In Laws live on Lakewood near Addison. Close to the stadium as well. Been to some Cubs games. Great atmosphere that the Rays will never experience.

Fuck the Bears!

I'll be at the season opener when the Bucs fuck the 'Fins right in the blowhole.

 

Likely will be supporting the team wearing my Alstott jersey and shoulder pads.

Headed down there for the game as well. Only two games I'll be at this year...Miami and home opening game vs Chicago!

I'll be the one surrounded by the 20 Puerto Rican Chicago fans...shit talking the whole time until Glennon fucks up their hopes and dreams!
