“I Never Saw Us As Losers”

August 2nd, 2014

It is part of football lore, how in the first round of the 1995 draft, the Bucs selected Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks and the duo helped reverse the fortunes of the sad sack Bucs into a Super Bowl champion.

Two Florida guys, born and bred, would make football history. Sapp was disgusted the Bucs selected him. Brooks was happy. As different as two personalities can be — the two were friends since high school — Brooks and Sapp not only made history on the field, both are Hall of Famers; Brooks is inducted this evening.

In this TBO.com video, Brooks sits down with Olivia Stacey to talk about how he helped the Bucs become winners.

    Wow, 80% of them played with each other for at least 6 years!? That is mind boggling in today’s NFL were players just come and go every season. It’s probably impossible today for Lovie to keep that large of a group of players playing together for that long, but I hope he can come close to doing that.


    I love how when I read JBF on my iPhone, I’m automatically and randomly zapped to the App Store and asked to purchase Kim Kardashian’s game of Candy Crush.
