Tampa Bay was proud to earn a National Football League franchise, and could not wait for their new team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to take the field. 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: […]

Five NFL teams that improved during the 2016 offseason

Rex Ryan can claim that the Bills are the NFL’s 2016 offseason champions, but since pads aren’t worn during the offseason, that hollow title is up for debate. Offseason activities across the league ended Thursday with 25 teams wrapping up their mandatory minicamps. The other seven teams finished last week. So now we can look back at free […]

Buccaneers OC: I was ‘dead wrong’ about Jameis Winston

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken admits he was “dead wrong” about his initial impression of second-year quarterback Jameis Winston. “I think that’s one thing that’s a misnomer,” Monken said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I think from the outside you would’ve looked at it with all the things that were publicized in […]

Evaluating Tampa Bay Bucs Draft and post Draft

DRAFT DAY! 2016- Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Whats in store? Look to the recent past.

Will it be Vernon Hargreaves of Florida, CB who fancies himself a Tampa man through and through? Or do the Bucs draft another DE from Clemson?

NFL ‘likely’ to change something that doesn’t need changing
