With the theme being “Jersey week” here at SB Nation, I figured I would pick my favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time. In other words, if I had to buy one jersey throughout the team’s history, this would be the one I’d get.
Personally, I’m not a big fan of the current jerseys. I don’t know why, but they just don’t do it for me, I almost feel like there is just too much going on. On a side not, the color rush jerseys are awesome, but the team only wore them on Thursday night games. This year, teams have the option to wear them when they want. If it was my choice, they would be the pick every Sunday.
Anyway, back to my “must buy” jersey.
I currently own four Buccaneer jerseys. The two “road” jerseys I own are Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David. The two “home” jerseys I own are Jameis Winston and Mike Evans. I know I stated before that I’m not a huge fan of the jerseys, but I do wear them all the time because I try and support the team the best I can.
My favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time is the ones they sported during the Super Bowl in 2003. I think those are my favorites because of the memories not only that game brought, but that season brought as well. Those jerseys were worn when the franchise was extremely successful and Raymond James Stadium was one of the most feared places in the NFL. It just brings back good memories and it’s something not only myself, but this entire fanbase needs.
So, you know the jersey, but you don’t know the player. The player I would chose for the back of the jersey would be Ronde Barber. Barber was my favorite Buccaneer growing up and we all remember the impact he had during the Super Bowl run. That pick six is still playing over in many Buccaneers fans heads and we as a fan base, can only hope another one of those glorious moments are on the horizon.
Let me know what your choice would be, Bucs fans! I’m going to make a tally of the most popular choices and let all the readers know who the favorite was!
