Bucs unveil new helmet, logo

When the Buccaneers acknowledged that a new helmet and logo will be introduced, some (or at least one . . . and you know who you are) hoped that Bucco Bruce would be making a return, in some form or fashion.

Bucco Bruce won’t be back.

The Bucs have unveiled a slightly revised logo that takes up a much greater piece of real estate on a darker helmet, with a chrome face mask.

“This is an exciting day for the entire Buccaneers organization as we begin the process of introducing our new look by revealing an enhanced logo and new helmet design,” Buccaneers co-chairman Edward Glazer said in a team-issued release.  “The enhanced logo is much larger and portrays a more intimidating presence, while the chrome facemask is the first used by an NFL team.  This is the first alteration to our logo and helmet since the previous redesign 17 years ago and we believe it sets the stage for our transition into this new, exciting era of Buccaneers football.”

The new uniform that goes with the new helmet and new logo will be unveiled on March 5.  We’ve got a feeling that the full ensemble will make Bucco Bruce pee a little.

    Good lord, is that logo huge.

  2. nflhof says: Feb 20, 2014 9:23 PM

    I think the Buccaneers were he first team to have a colored face mask back in 1976

  3. angelogiaquinto18 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:23 PM

    What’s with the full sized logo?

  4. kaeprulestheworld says: Feb 20, 2014 9:23 PM

    It’s good!!!!

  5. phillysophic says: Feb 20, 2014 9:23 PM

    logo way too big…put that on a hockey goalie…

  6. jakeplummersghost says: Feb 20, 2014 9:24 PM

    what the hell is that

  7. leatherface2012 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:26 PM

    ummmm ok i guess

  8. meatcarroll says: Feb 20, 2014 9:26 PM

    Nothing can portray the Bucs as intimidating.

  9. rodvmunchiii says: Feb 20, 2014 9:27 PM

    Looks great, although that is certainly not the best picture since it’s a lot more silverish – at least on TV.

    I liked the current Bucs look, but this really really looks good.

    However I understand there will always be people that hate change and even if we can’t agree on this, everyone can agree that the Jags helmet is the ugliest thing in the universe.

  10. mitybuc says: Feb 20, 2014 9:27 PM


    Looks strong. Will look good under lights.

    Liked the previous helm alot. If change had to be had…this is pretty good look.

    The chrome grill will start trend for sure.

    Now…draft defense All the way, get back to the good old days. Go bucs!

  11. royalt79 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:27 PM

    So when the sun hits the facemask and the players can’t see, they’ll have a built in excuse for a losing season. Brilliant

  12. yaryers says: Feb 20, 2014 9:28 PM

    Chrome facemasks will be banned before the season begins. QBs aren’t going to like the sun reflecting in their eyes.

  13. netrunner2k2 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:28 PM

    It’s been 17 years? Holy crap I’m getting old.

  14. jmac34 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:28 PM

    Dang a return to Bucco Bruce and the creamsicle jerseys would have been amazing.

  15. taintedsaints2009 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:30 PM

    it would help if you had a picture of the new helmet and not the old one…

    oh. wait.

  16. chiadam says: Feb 20, 2014 9:31 PM

    The flag is too big.

  17. thestrategyexpert says: Feb 20, 2014 9:31 PM

    Definitely improved but would have been better with a more subtle color splash fading of the red banner since it’s kind of tacky and it could have been spliced in a little more artistically. The chrome and textured finish look nice and sleek.

    Also would have preferred a more scary and evil looking skull face, if you are going to do it then go all the way and scare some people by being extra wicked. I think I could be friends with that jolly guy. I bet he’s funny too.

  18. seatownballers says: Feb 20, 2014 9:31 PM

    Not bad

  19. jlopez856 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:31 PM

    That’s a huge logo haha!!

  20. ejm845 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:32 PM

    Looks terrible like the ones they have

  21. terryleather says: Feb 20, 2014 9:33 PM

    Chrome face mask? I bet that will be fun on sunny days. Look for the Buccs to lead the league in drops this year.

  22. blacknole08 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:33 PM

    That is one mean looking skull.

  23. calhounlambeau says: Feb 20, 2014 9:33 PM

    The chrome mask is awesome. I like it.

  24. trezlorenz says: Feb 20, 2014 9:34 PM

    Loved the change and hopefully the uniform will include black pants and jerseys in the uniform combo.

  25. tigersdawgs says: Feb 20, 2014 9:34 PM

    I love the new helmet and skull!!!

  26. chris31954 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:34 PM

    This helmet is amazing. I foresee many a Sundays where Gerald McCoy is flashing past a lineman and pounding a blinded QB. Man that chrome face mask is loud! Go Bucs!

  27. janvanflac says: Feb 20, 2014 9:35 PM

    i like the larger logo….wish they had kept everything else the same. but not too bad.

  28. skolvikings58 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:36 PM

    Cool, can’t wait to see the new uni’s

  29. aceakking says: Feb 20, 2014 9:36 PM

    I like the new logo.

  30. pooflingingmonkey says: Feb 20, 2014 9:36 PM

    I like it. I hate the Bucs, but at least they have a better helmet now.

  31. tropboi11 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:38 PM

    I can’t wait till I can get a hat with the new logo. It’s badass.

  32. shnakeriver says: Feb 20, 2014 9:38 PM

    Dang, I was hoping for return to creamsicle orange.

  33. sportsfaninyyc says: Feb 20, 2014 9:41 PM

    Raiders ripoff.

  34. ryann252013 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:41 PM

    I like this! if only my jets changed their uni’s & logo :/

  35. theneedforspeeed says: Feb 20, 2014 9:41 PM

    I like it.

  36. wayneflores says: Feb 20, 2014 9:41 PM

    Raiders need a new helmet. Maybe a crome helment.
    White decal, like on throw back helments, that they never wear. They should also wear their away jerseys at home like the Cowboys do. The black is hot, and some away games the opponents make the Raiders wear their black jerseys, because they are hotter. Matter of fact, just do away with the black jersey, they aren’t intimidating anymore, maybe Silver instead.

  37. schmokes says: Feb 20, 2014 9:42 PM

    They couldn’t get it any bigger?

  38. jbl429 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:42 PM

    Interesting with the chrome facemask. I wonder if there will be any issues with glare on bright days or from the stadium lights.

  39. @Cereal_22 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:43 PM

    Wannabe Raiders much ???

  40. pugsley927 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:43 PM

    that helmet looks horrible, mirrors the franchise as a whole

  41. myworldurjuslivinit says: Feb 20, 2014 9:45 PM

    new digs = one more win

  42. myworldurjuslivinit says: Feb 20, 2014 9:45 PM

    …and $$$$$ to the owner.

  43. blingslade says: Feb 20, 2014 9:45 PM

    Not bad, but did the old logo really need updating?

  44. thelastwordyaheard says: Feb 20, 2014 9:45 PM

    wow, that looks terrible.. hello arena league

  45. chaseutley says: Feb 20, 2014 9:46 PM

    It seems like there’s a lot of silver and black. I’m guessing that Al Davis would have a problem with this if he were still with us.

  46. seattlesuperchronic says: Feb 20, 2014 9:47 PM

    Now that’s a big logo!

  47. jakec4 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:47 PM

    The flag is kind of big, but that helmet isn’t bad at all. I like the deal with the swords under the skull.

  48. brooklyn40niner says: Feb 20, 2014 9:47 PM

    Bucco Bruce & The Creamsicles: GREATEST logo & color scheme in the history of team sports.

  49. elliottcovert says: Feb 20, 2014 9:47 PM

    I don’t really like that. The logo now takes up too much of the helmet. They were fine before when the logo was centered on the helmet.

  50. ghengy says: Feb 20, 2014 9:48 PM


  51. jebdamone says: Feb 20, 2014 9:48 PM

    not impressed

  52. gotampabay52 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:50 PM

    Best helmet in football

  53. amazingguy101 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:53 PM

    Yuck just saying.

  54. u4iadman says: Feb 20, 2014 9:53 PM

    Actually a big improvement. Well done.

  55. bender4700 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:55 PM


    Ok. Neat.

  56. mutohasaposse says: Feb 20, 2014 9:56 PM

    Maybe it is a sign of getting older but I don’t like when teams change their logos and colors. The Bucs didn’t change their colors/logo all that long ago. It seems that whenever it happens it is for the worse. The only exception would be if the Chargers stuck with the powder blues.

  57. titansbro says: Feb 20, 2014 9:58 PM

    Pretty cool. I like the oversized helmet logos. Time for the titans to get some new unis now.

  58. skinsfan4 says: Feb 20, 2014 9:59 PM

    That is horrendous. Their current logo and helmet were fine.

  59. rg3andthensome says: Feb 20, 2014 10:00 PM


  60. nfl fan says: Feb 20, 2014 10:02 PM

    Will it put fans in the stands? That’s what they need.

  61. bucrightoff says: Feb 20, 2014 10:04 PM

    Just go back to the creamsicles full time.

  62. Stiller43 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:06 PM

    Thats…a bit too large.

  63. packerfaninsandiego says: Feb 20, 2014 10:07 PM


  64. snookau says: Feb 20, 2014 10:07 PM

    I like.

  65. whysomanylosers says: Feb 20, 2014 10:08 PM

    I always thought the had a great idea but missed the mark with the previous logo. The old skull, swords and football all looked too “cartoonish”… this is an improvement. I’ll withhold judgment on the size of the log until I see a helmet in action.

    At least it’s better than the JETS.

  66. akboot says: Feb 20, 2014 10:09 PM

    This has ugly all over it. YUK!

  67. footballfan84 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:09 PM


  68. stevew5 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:11 PM

    I like it. It’s Raideresque.

  69. uglyglazers says: Feb 20, 2014 10:12 PM

    Wow! This is so bad, it doesn’t even deserve professional criticism. It’s a joke right?

  70. firedup1 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:13 PM


  71. dedreu400 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:14 PM

    that’s it I’m a Bucs fan!
    just kidding

  72. Xenu D. Alien says: Feb 20, 2014 10:15 PM

    The last thing I would want is a shiny chrome face mask to reflect light in my eyes. Don’t see any improvement in the overall look either. Fail.

  73. ibreathefootball says: Feb 20, 2014 10:15 PM

    That damn flag is too big!

  74. xxbudsharkxx says: Feb 20, 2014 10:16 PM

    Go Bucs, We are contenders this year with Lovie!!! wooo hoooo

  75. hellogoodbye3005 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:17 PM

    That’s hard. Proud to be a West Coast Bucs fan!

  76. oslograss says: Feb 20, 2014 10:18 PM

    NFL. Nike Football League.

  77. burkem325 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:18 PM

    Damn. I was hoping for the return of the winking pirate… Nothing is quite as intimidating as…

    …a winking pirate…

  78. yankeefootball says: Feb 20, 2014 10:18 PM

    Oops! Dark helmet in the hot Florida sun.

  79. ✦ Pittsburgh is the City of Champions ✦ says: Feb 20, 2014 10:18 PM

    A move of desperation.

  80. securb2013 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:19 PM


  81. sclobernocker47 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:22 PM

    They actual helmet usnt darker at all. the artist rendition is misleading.

  82. bert1913 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:22 PM

    not a bucs fan, but that is a really cool logo

  83. thekingdave says: Feb 20, 2014 10:24 PM


  84. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 20, 2014 10:27 PM

    Still smells like a dead pirate to me.

  85. rajbais says: Feb 20, 2014 10:27 PM

    Who cares if Bucco Bruce isn’t back.

    He only works with creamsicle or whatever ugly color they used to wear anyways.

  86. kd75 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:32 PM

    Because a logo on a helmet can intimidate any team into a couple wins per season…

    Just say it was a cash grab to sell merchandise please. We aren’t fools Mr. Glazer.

  87. realitysam says: Feb 20, 2014 10:34 PM

    Seriously? Bucco Bruce was the best. This change is just a hot mess! It’s like saying, “In case you didn’t see how we messed it up the first time, lemme turn it up for you!!” I like the Bucs, just expect more.

  88. craniator says: Feb 20, 2014 10:37 PM

    I always thought that if you won the Super Bowl fairly recently (it was only 11 seasons ago for Tampa Bay) , you didn’t mess with karma like that. I guess I was mistaken. Don’t get me wrong , it’s not as though the uniforms were that great to begin with , but the biggest flaw , having the two swords crossed and also having the flag hanging from the end of another sword (sword overkill) apparently still hasn’t been addressed.

  89. lightning69 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:38 PM

    C’mon Glazers. We need and edge rusher and QB.I for one am very glad Bucco Bruce is dead and gone. But you can’t promote a Logo “Change” when this looks like an update.

    So…how is this not a cash grab?

    Don’t tell me that we have mostly black unis that will “intimidate” opponents.

    IF and ONLY IF we survive Aug training camp @96° and 85% humidity. Fans regularly need medical treatment during preseason and Sept games wearing red and pewter. How are black hats going to work?

    C’mon Glazers. We need and edge rusher and QB.

    Oh and the Pewter Report blog guys must be real happy.

  90. packerbackernj says: Feb 20, 2014 10:39 PM

    No sir, i don’t like it.

  91. festivus01 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:40 PM

    Are they the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Or the Tampa Bay Raiders?

  92. thestillcity says: Feb 20, 2014 10:41 PM

    What a travesty.

    And even worse is that some design firm just got paid untold amounts of money to click “zoom” a few times in Adobe Illustrator.

    The pewter gray was the best part about that uniform.

  93. jodave5 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:45 PM

    Awful, as expected.

  94. donsjohnson says: Feb 20, 2014 10:49 PM

    Very cool logo on the helmet. It’s just that it is way too big, taking up too much room on the helmet.

  95. floridahawker says: Feb 20, 2014 10:51 PM

    I actually kinda dig it!!!!

  96. realnflmaster says: Feb 20, 2014 10:51 PM

    Why is the logo so big? It looks like those awful NBA jerseys from the 90’s.

  97. blackbeard43 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:52 PM

    Still takes too much bite off of the Raider’s mystique.

  98. jeff2380 says: Feb 20, 2014 10:53 PM

    Looks good

  99. urmomsmyho says: Feb 20, 2014 10:55 PM


  100. Tadd says: Feb 20, 2014 10:58 PM

    A wise football sage once told me, when it comes to uniforms and redesigns the only thing that matters is WINNING FOOTBALL games, even the most ungodly uniforms look a whole lot better when you win, when you lose you change your uniforms to try to turn a new leaf.

    If they start winning wearing the Creamcicle uniforms (worst uniform in NFL history, and possibly sports history) and you win, fans will like it and embrace it. Just win baby.

  101. dumbpollack says: Feb 20, 2014 10:59 PM

    Another uniform change….for the worse!!

  102. thewiseowloftruth says: Feb 20, 2014 11:05 PM

    Not bad. There was nothing wrong with the old helmet and logo, however.

  103. oldsombrero says: Feb 20, 2014 11:08 PM

    Merchandise sales must be down… Hey fellas, how about we dont start 0-8. Lets see how that helps your pockets. Needless change. The chrome is alright, but anything else was unnecessary and redundant. Unless of course you profit off the sales of new merch..

  104. johnqlunchbox says: Feb 20, 2014 11:08 PM

    Uglier than homemade sin.

  105. redeaglesox says: Feb 20, 2014 11:11 PM

    George Costanza must have designed that sweet looking, chrome mirrors sunlight in your eyes face mask.

  106. papertiger418 says: Feb 20, 2014 11:19 PM

    Ha! Sweet rims, bro!

  107. rodneyharrisonstruckstick says: Feb 20, 2014 11:19 PM


    I know this is a matter of opinion, but with that being said, I wasn’t a Graphic Design major in art school but I sure as h#ll could pull something together in a night better than that. And I’m not even trolling commenter scumbag style either, like seriously.

    Who is getting paid/paying to make these decisions? This is going the way of the Jags, ‘ya know, a horrendous team deserves a horrendous Uni” but seriously? I felt like the present(past) Buc’s color scheme was alright, just needed to be simplified a bit maybe, certainly the logo. Loose the pirate ships and cannons in your stadium and your there. I’m definitely a sucker for older styled uniforms so that’s my perspective. Less is more, more often than not. Raiders, Steelers, Colts, Cowboys, Alabama, etc. All simple, All Classic! And there’s a reason for that. If I were a bucs fan I would be cringing a little bit, hoping my fearless leader wasn’t walking down the same path as Shaka Khan there.. -Pats fan.

  108. loyalbrownsfan says: Feb 20, 2014 11:24 PM

    Gotta say I like it. I thought it would be a downgrade but I do like it.

  109. psdaleno says: Feb 20, 2014 11:30 PM

    I know it’s a simple design but for some reason I get dizzy staring at it.

  110. oaklegend says: Feb 20, 2014 11:32 PM

    That is ridiculously big. Kind of a step backward if you ask me.

  111. bearsnoah says: Feb 20, 2014 11:33 PM

    Lame. Looks cartoonish. Should have gone back to the throwback look.

  112. gor3hound says: Feb 20, 2014 11:47 PM

    I like the enhanced logo, I just think is too freaking big, about the chrome mask? Meh

  113. kevin7777777 says: Feb 20, 2014 11:49 PM

    Logo is to big. Chrome face mask doesn’t look good and might cause glare. Thumbs down!

  114. staffordsyear says: Feb 20, 2014 11:50 PM

    Why didnt they go for the big logo?

  115. rjkilla says: Feb 20, 2014 11:51 PM


  116. Bretterson says: Feb 20, 2014 11:53 PM

    Looks like a clipart knockoff of the previous logo. If you’re going to commit to change, why this?

  117. foofooface says: Feb 20, 2014 11:57 PM

    They look awesome

  118. 14asports says: Feb 20, 2014 11:58 PM

    We waited all week for an enlarged logo and a chrome grill….smh

  119. ajgreenhof says: Feb 21, 2014 12:04 AM

    I like the old version better but it’s not bad by any means.

  120. ajd4 says: Feb 21, 2014 12:07 AM

    Not that great

  121. mrlaloosh says: Feb 21, 2014 12:27 AM

    Wow! What a clown organization. I’m sure that smiling skull will strike fear into the opponents. They’ll be laughing so hard the Bucs should easily beat them. Laughter is exhausting. They should have waited until April 1st to show this ridiculous design. Wow!

  122. smokingconch says: Feb 21, 2014 12:28 AM

    I like the new look a lot, especially the chrome, but as a resident of Tampa, FL, I wonder how much light reflection the Florida sun will have against that polished chrome. Better stock up on eye paint.

  123. justintuckrule says: Feb 21, 2014 12:34 AM

    World league.

  124. sdnative1904 says: Feb 21, 2014 12:35 AM

    That’s what I expect from Florida.

  125. hotdog113 says: Feb 21, 2014 1:09 AM

    That’s ridiculously large.

  126. seahawksbmx says: Feb 21, 2014 1:17 AM

    Schiano out, Lovie and a great coaching staff in, and now those sick helmets to top it off. I would think Buc fans have been rescued from depression over the past few weeks. Class of ’76 with the top 2 uniforms in the league.

  127. croghan1919 says: Feb 21, 2014 1:19 AM

    A skull and crossed BONES would be cooler.
    I’ve never seen a crossed sabre pirate flag.
    There must be some sort of marketing angle for the 3 sabre’s

  128. redwingfan1234 says: Feb 21, 2014 1:30 AM

    Is there a rule that makes all new helmets in the state of Florida hideous?

  129. autumnwind67 says: Feb 21, 2014 1:54 AM

    This new helmet, is just ok… I think the NFL is trying waaaay too hard. Jax new helmet sucks, this isn’t too bad, but nothing was wrong w the old uni and logo, so now they just tweak and make the logo bigger…. :/ eh I wouldn’t mind a team staying w some sort of tradition, with a well thought out plan…. Boo!

  130. rarelyclever says: Feb 21, 2014 2:17 AM

    That flag is comically big.

  131. gammynomnom says: Feb 21, 2014 2:35 AM

    The chrome looks awesome but won’t it catch a glare?

  132. michfan says: Feb 21, 2014 2:37 AM

    New helmet, same old Bucs!

  133. louhudson23 says: Feb 21, 2014 3:06 AM

    I think the 4th grader who designed this should be very proud of themselves….

  134. psj3809 says: Feb 21, 2014 4:18 AM

    The NFL’s turning into the Premiership with all these constant uniform changes. Call me old fashioned but i used to like it when the majority of teams just kept with the same iconic helmet or uniform.

    Thank god the Raiders wont ever change theirs

  135. tjacks7 says: Feb 21, 2014 6:24 AM

    Hideous. Are they sure that helmet/logo won’t interfere with anything NASA is doing? Might mistake it for a new planet.

  136. kayakattack says: Feb 21, 2014 7:10 AM


  137. saint2112 says: Feb 21, 2014 7:17 AM

    Shouldn’t the flag color be white? “Surrender”

    Looks like an ugly college football alternate

  139. 1heatedtoombrayduh says: Feb 21, 2014 7:21 AM

    For all the distaste I read about the possible new logo..this really isnt bad…not sure why they had to go with chrome, but eh not too drastic

  140. albanyhawker says: Feb 21, 2014 7:23 AM

    Isn’t anyone concerned that a chrome facemask will present tremendous glare problems for a team that plays half its games in Florida??!!

  141. takingbacksundays5 says: Feb 21, 2014 7:25 AM

    Wow, that looks awful. Reminds me of an Arena League team or something.

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

  142. AKA Slow Joe (Bucs fan) says: Feb 21, 2014 7:29 AM

    The chrome facemask looks cool, but I’m worried it’ll reflect back in the player’s eyes in that Florida sun.

  143. philk0731 says: Feb 21, 2014 7:32 AM

    That logo is way too big on the helmet

  144. raiderufan says: Feb 21, 2014 7:37 AM

    I like it. I hope they don’t to over the top with the jersey. Lately it seems like teams wanna throw as many things as possible on a jersey lately. Simple still works if it’s done right.

  145. timbuttrum says: Feb 21, 2014 7:40 AM

    Love this look and the fact that the Bucs upgraded. Many teams should do the same….

  146. shmadman says: Feb 21, 2014 7:42 AM

    Hahaha. That is awful!!!

  147. cuda1234 says: Feb 21, 2014 7:50 AM

    Bucco Bruce can NEVER come back. The Buccaneers were the worst team in all of professional sports in those creamsickle unis – there was nothing good about them and they should never again see the light of day. To quote the late, great John McKay, I am in favor of their execution.

  148. jayzus says: Feb 21, 2014 7:52 AM

    I don’t like it, it looks like a college helmet.

  149. spkriegs says: Feb 21, 2014 7:56 AM

    Wow, seriously? Those huge decals look ridiculous, and the chrome facemask is way too trendy. Another swing and a miss by the idiotic Nike design team.

  150. george1859 says: Feb 21, 2014 7:57 AM

    Yuck. The NFL is about tradition.
    Big screw up TB.
    Bucco Bruce will be back when the bucks get their heads on straight.

  151. thebirdsareback says: Feb 21, 2014 8:07 AM

    Maybe a bit too big. But not bad. atleast you’ll look real cool while you lose like the jags. Love them helmets lol

  152. addict2sport says: Feb 21, 2014 8:08 AM

    Al Davis would have sued.

  153. nyninerfan says: Feb 21, 2014 8:08 AM

    Al Davis has got to be turning over in his grave right now.

  154. mcmccii says: Feb 21, 2014 8:20 AM

    Looks stupid and oversized, plus they abandoned their colors. Weak.

  155. haywoodjablomee says: Feb 21, 2014 8:28 AM

    Not long before all teams will be changing uniforms once a year to sell more fan apparel.

  156. kneedragr says: Feb 21, 2014 8:36 AM

    Looks pretty stupid.

  157. redsoxchamp11 says: Feb 21, 2014 8:37 AM

    As a Tampa fan, I really like it. I like that they stayed true to the logos that they already have and didn’t go for the gusto with a complete revamp of an already great logo. Looking forward to the jersey updates now, hopefully they keep the same line of thinking.

  158. chemebiker says: Feb 21, 2014 8:44 AM

    These helmets actually look pretty awesome.

  159. big64d says: Feb 21, 2014 8:44 AM

    Awesome! The NFL should take a pointer from the NCAA and let their teams be creative with their uniforms. I would actually buy an overpriced jersey if it was looking like Oregon and less like the Cowboys.

  160. 87hollywoodhorn says: Feb 21, 2014 8:46 AM

    Bucco Bruce is cool

  161. ashburninsider says: Feb 21, 2014 8:50 AM

    I like their current helmet better. And a crome facemask?? No worries about a glare reflecting off of it from lights??

  162. staticphear says: Feb 21, 2014 8:51 AM

    Not a Bucs fan but I think the new logo looks good.

  163. mrbgood315 says: Feb 21, 2014 9:11 AM

    Logo needs to be bigger.

  164. harkafella says: Feb 21, 2014 9:30 AM

    Yes, really not sure why they didn’t make logo larger? There is plenty of room to carry it down to the shoulder pads…

  165. shmadman says: Feb 21, 2014 9:30 AM

    It looks like they used photo shop and stretched the image to the largest size possible with no respect to the shape of the helmet. F-

  166. askingwater says: Feb 21, 2014 9:44 AM

    They were going for that World Football League look, considering they’ll be playing in London in five years after the Jags move to L.A.

  167. liner1900 says: Feb 21, 2014 9:50 AM

    You heard it here first – red jerseys will have chrome numbers.

  168. liner1900 says: Feb 21, 2014 9:54 AM

    Haven’t heard this mentioned much. Very cool…

    “Also unique to the Buccaneers’ look will be a hand-painted shading technique that uses a darker pewter color running vertically from the front of the helmet to the crown and along the ear-holes, providing a one-of-a-kind custom look.”

  169. fishfiletkray says: Feb 21, 2014 10:14 AM

    Go big or go home!

  170. cjas9298 says: Feb 21, 2014 10:24 AM

    I guess it fits our time. It’s undignified.

  171. kneelbeforesod says: Feb 21, 2014 10:50 AM

    It’s…um…. Fierce?

  172. thetooloftools says: Feb 21, 2014 10:57 AM

    Who wants Jerry Jones on the side of their helmet?

  173. JC De La Torre says: Feb 21, 2014 10:58 AM

    People, it’s still Pewter. Just hand painted so it’s a bit darker shade. This picture isn’t a good representation of it.

    Personally, I love it. It meshes the modern look of the “go big” logos while keeping the tradition of pewter power.

    “Skully” is cleaner, less cartoonish and looks like he’s pissed off. The flag image is cleaner too.

    The Chrome looks sick. I think it’s going to look really good once we see the entire package.

    Comparisons to the Jaguars are ridiculous. They’re just hideous. This looks sharp.

  174. nowillrepeat says: Feb 21, 2014 12:05 PM

    New color and chrome facemask are cool, but the logo is completely ridiculous. Keep it the original size.

  175. shaggytoodle says: Feb 21, 2014 1:55 PM

    That was anti climatic.

    If they wanted to increase logo size by 400% that’s fine, but I think it would be cooler if they had more rips and tears in the flag then, you know like Pirate flags.

  176. mediasloppy says: Feb 21, 2014 3:51 PM

    That picture looks nothing like the real helmet shown on NFL Network. The new logo looks the same, but the helmet is not dark at all, unless it was the studio lights that made it look almost sparkly silver colored.

  177. h8glazersgobucs says: Feb 21, 2014 6:08 PM

    no surprised. The Bucs always seem to have really bad design on their branding and marketing stuff.

  178. kev86 says: Feb 21, 2014 9:06 PM

    No 22 year old kid with blazing speed and amazing skills would want the cream sickle look. This helmet looks better. Not sure about the chrome face masks yet.

  179. scamp516dp says: Feb 21, 2014 9:55 PM

    Go Oakland Raiders………

  180. chazatlas says: Feb 21, 2014 10:44 PM


  181. trollhammer20 says: Feb 22, 2014 10:58 AM

    Given the literal translation of the original word “boucanier” is “bacon-eater” (because the pirates of the Caribbean used to survive largely off pig meat they obtained by hunting on the islands), they should have two crossed strips of bacon beneath the skull.

  182. alamba78 says: Feb 22, 2014 1:54 PM

    It’s gonna be real distracting watching the players on tv with that ginormous flag. Shoulda increased the size a little bit, but not this big. And some shading to the flag woulda made it look more realistic and not flat. Chrome facemask looks cool but is it going to cause glaring issues? The helmet shading is subtle so it should add to the look rather than distract. Let’s see it on gameday!

  183. Dogsweat says: Feb 22, 2014 3:46 PM

    Tremendous helmet, and will be the pioneer for chrome facemasks and huge logos to come, now the key is what will the jerseys look like?’

    Red with Pewter numbers sewn on, and Pewter Pants with red line down the side or Red with Silver numbers sewn on, with Silver pants and a red line down the side.

    Either way it’s a win -win.

    Nice job!

  184. saintswillprevail says: Feb 22, 2014 5:05 PM

    Reminds me of the USFL

  185. bigdawg24 says: Feb 23, 2014 2:11 PM


  186. seattlesue427 says: Feb 23, 2014 3:29 PM

    Oh dear God! Could that be any worse? Why not just add in a pirate ship, an eye patch, and a picture of Johnny Depp. That’s just godawful ugly.

  187. chat1776 says: Feb 23, 2014 7:00 PM

    Horrible, horrible, horrible.

  188. respectgsh says: Feb 24, 2014 1:12 AM

    The whole Buc’s idea rips off the Raiders who BTW have the coolest uniforms in the League. There was no need to bite from the Raiders’ apple even further. They finally got it right the last time around. I wouldn’t like it if I were a Bucs fan. Well, at least they have that cool pirate ship in their stadium.

  189. malab377 says: Feb 24, 2014 5:40 PM

    I hope that this logo will prevent concussions.

  190. bencoates57 says: Feb 25, 2014 10:03 AM

    Only the Jets have a better logo / uniform.

  191. mrcmos says: Feb 25, 2014 11:54 AM

    Changing the uniform will not help in any way.

    Putting lipstick on a pig it’s ….well..ah..still a pig.
    Coaching change was the first step.
    Now work on personnel.

  192. whatjusthapped says: Feb 25, 2014 4:11 PM

    Who approved that logo design and why do they still have a job?

  193. claimersays says: Feb 25, 2014 8:40 PM

    I think the Buccaneers were he first team to have a colored face mask back in 1976

     Wrong, the Redskins Burgundy helmets w Gold facemasks

  194. eldoradogeorge says: Feb 26, 2014 9:15 AM

    I hope to god that the NFL doesn’t start adopting all those ugly college uniform styles. The Pro Bowl unis were bad enough!
