But when they did, the Bucs brought ridicule to Tampa first. In the form of late night Johnny Carson jokes, the nation laughed at our infancy as we […]

Last Time the Offensive Coordinator was promoted to Head Coach…

The Head Coach had resurrected a dead franchise, and had a reputation; so the Bucs hired him. After several years of failed promises, the Bucs grew tired of losing, and fired him. But they listened to Bucs Franchise QB and kept the Offensive Coordinator. The promise of an offensive juggernaut was too tempting for Bucs: […]
