Buccaneers vs. Ravens: Preseason Week One Game Preview, TV, and Radio Coverage


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens tomorrow evening at Raymond James Stadium for the first game of the 2013 preseason. The Ravens were the example for the Buccaneers to follow last year, as they utilized a big play passing game and a versatile workhorse running back on offense to bring home the Lombardi Trophy. The Buccaneers have added some serious star power over the past two seasons, and will be looking to find the depth players needed to ensure they have what it takes to endure the long NFL season.

Considering that this is the first preseason game, starters are unlikely to see the field for very long. So the Bucs and Ravens will get a chance to evaluate their depth in a full-speed NFL game, and fans will get a chance to see their team on the field for the first time in several months.

    I go to many Rays games but refuse to go to a Bucs’ game. The Rays make it easy to become familiar with the players and the events. The Bucs give very little preview and do not make me feel a part of the action. Blackouts is perhaps the biggest reason for fans to take interest in another sport. It is about impossible to be knowledgeable about your team when there is little advertisement, a website that tells almost nothing, previews that are almost nonexistent and the only games televised are those played at the opponents stadium with THEIR fans cheering them on. Unless something changes I will stick with baseball which makes me part of their circle rather than football that keeps me in a dark corner.

      Kind of ridiculous conundrum. You aren’t a fan, and therefore don’t attend because the team isn’t on TV. However, because you don’t attend, that’s why the team isn’t on TV.

      Sounds like a Yogi Berra quote.

        It is obvious that you missed my point. Perhaps ask someone with a youthful but mature mind to read my paragraph and explain the point I was trying to get across. Yes, I had also mentioned the blackouts but that was not the focus of my comment. The Bucs do an inadequate job of informing the public of the who, what, when and where of the team. The website is not informative and does not properly promote the zing. If the ‘Rocky’ movie was promoted by saying that it was two guys fighting in a boxing match instead of showing some of the previews, I would not have watched it. But the zing is what sold me on investing my time and money to go watch the movie.
