True Believers, Jameis & Leading Brett Favre

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Jameis Winston is bubbling over with good stuff you can’t teach, yet he has so much to learn.

To say this is a big season for No. 3 is a little like saying Tropicana Field occasionally has some seats available. (more…)

Inside Dirk Koetter’s Welcome Speech

Monday, April 16th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Dirk Koetter has been thinking about this moment for the past 15 weeks.

He’s had almost four months to prepare appropriate remarks for his players as they return to One Buc Place. And although the games don’t count until September, the right message delivered powerfully in the spring could resonate throughout the 2018 season. (more…)

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

On draft night, he might be tempted to hurl himself into the Gulf while howling at the moon. (more…)

“Take Control Of The Route”

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Hold off on your seven-round mock drafts for a moment and get real, Stick Carriers.

The Bucs aren’t in bad shape sitting at No. 7 — and the word of the day is value. Things would get easy if Bradley Chubb, Saquon Barkley or Quenton Nelson are still on the board, or things can get messy if the big three are all gone.

I’m hearing a lot of chatter about Jason Licht selecting Minkah Fitzpatrick or Derwin James in that scenario, but I’m not buying it. (more…)
