  10. Javier Suárez on March 1, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    I’ve seen this video like 20 times (own the original DVD) and it’s the first time I realize that the footage of Lynch at 27:36 is from a previous season because in 2002 all jerseys were made by reebok

  11. Jameis Winston on March 1, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    It’s weird how the Bucs won the Stanley cup and then two years later the lightning won the nba finals

  12. CM Punk on March 1, 2020 at 10:50 pm

  14. stankloc1 on March 1, 2020 at 10:54 pm

  15. Damon Moralez on March 1, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    They cheated the Raiders fuck the Bucs they knew all the plays they ran

    After the sneaky tweak of offensive rule changes in the late 90’s, followed by "The Greatest Show On Turf" Rams, My team the Ravens, Bucs, Titans, Steelers, Patriots, and Jaguars (Carolina was almost there) began a defensive assault on the league not seen since the 70’s. I was so happy for the Bucs. I always liked and followed them ever since they entered the league, and was as horrible as it got. Then 1979 came and Tampa showed up and started straight PUNNISHING teams. That squad was a Doug Williams just average game away from facing the Steelers in Super Bowl XIV. But it wasn’t to be and finally the L.A. Rams got there. Tampa would win another Division Championship in ’81 and endure a ass whippin the playoffs. Then the turned back into the expansion Bucs and became a joke all over again. Then Tampa started hiring decent Coaches and they became respectable again. Tony Dungy gave them total legitamacy along with a uniform change. Suddenly, the Bucs had to be dealt with. I wanted a Ravens vs Bucs Super Bowl. It would’ve been EPIC!
    btw…the Bucs should be well represented in Canton. D.Brooks, W.Saap, M.Alstott. J.Lynch. Not bad…not bad at all.

  18. Guto Füchs on March 1, 2020 at 11:00 pm

    Then they completely blasted the Raiders. Best Bucs Squad

  19. Big Fella on March 1, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Jon Gruden sounds like Michael de Santa

  20. Dean Jace F10 550i on March 1, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Best Defense Ever!! 5 Interceptions which is a SuperBowl record proves that IMO.. Wish they could get back to these glory days!

  21. Michael Scott on March 1, 2020 at 11:04 pm

    When I was in 8th grade our football coach sat us all in a classroom and played this on VHS. We went 1-7, but damn were we inspired for that hour. Still one of the best football documentaries of all time.

  26. Dumisa Tony Johnson on March 1, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    18 eagles 🦅 don’t like this

  27. Don't Tread On Me on March 1, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Would have at least 1 or 2 more championships if we had just an average offense especially in the Bucs/Rams NFC championship game. Miss these days

  28. mikem987 on March 1, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Great team, but the SB was rigged…Should have been a great SB…

  29. Dennis Rowe on March 1, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    My four favorite quotes from Gene Deckerhoff “ Derek, you can walk from there!! You go Joe! You go Joe! Ronday Barber coast to coast! Mike Alstott up the gut!! And of coarse “ touchdowwwn……Tampa Bay!!!

  30. Nate Pitts on March 1, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    I’m a lifetime Bucs fan. Have been since a child. I was 9 years old when they won the Super Bowl, and I’ve seen hundreds of "championship games" since SB37. To this day, when I picture a "championship team," this group always comes to mind. Every position was either stacked, or that player in their career prime. By far, one of the most dominant defenses of all time in NFL history.

  31. GatorBoi7K on March 1, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Im ready fa tha 2019 season 2 kik off. Let’s go BUCS!!!

  32. Tinkey on March 1, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    As a Tampa native, I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve watched this film over 25 times. The only glimpse I got of this legendary team because at the time in 2002 I was just a baby. Hopefully I’ll be able to see another Super Bowl victory from the bucs soon because it’s long overdue for this team. Whatever happens, I’ll always have the bucs back.

  33. Corey Volcov on March 1, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Thank goodness the patriots didn’t make the playoffs in 2002 because I think they would have tried for the super bowl again

  34. Lawson McKenzie on March 1, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    After this win vs the rams I needed to watch this to get that feeling back… this team is on the rise again, you can see it in the way the players are flying all over the field like the old days

  35. Bruce Bellamy on March 1, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    Am I still watching this in 2019?
