Your 2017 Buccaneers Captains

September 4th, 2017


Change has come to the Buccaneers’ leadership.

Players have voted on 2017 captains and the results are in, winning head coach Dirk Koetter explained this afternoon at One Buc Palace.

Your captains are:

Gerald McCoy
Lavonte David
Kwon Alexander
Jameis Winston
Mike Evans
Josh Robinson (special teams)

Typically, the Bucs have two captains on each side of the ball, but there have been exceptions previously. And this year it’s three on defense.

Big honor for Mike Evans, considering the many Bucs veterans on the offensive line.

    Yes congrats Mike. Congrats to all of em. Big honor for those guys. I like the picks. I expected an Olineman too Joe. Cant learn leadership much this late in the game tho. Go Bucs

    Awesome team of Captains..
    Kwon was born to be a Captain..

    Good to see Josh also..

    Surprised a bit at the Mike Evans pick. Would think his maturity level and decision making could use another year, but maybe he’ll grow into it. I like the other choices.

    Makes me sick there is even a thing called McCoy haters. What a joke

  6. D-Rome Says:

    I guesthe knuckle dragging mouth breathers were wrong again in thinking GMC wouldn’t be voted to be a captain.

  7. Pablo Says:

    Pablo says he could not help but notice Drug Marten was not voted to be a team captain.

  8. Fsuking Says:

    I’m glad Kwon got it. He became a lot of people’s favorite defensive player early last year and I think by the end of this one he will be talked about as the best MLB in the game

    I would’ve loved to see Ali in there.

  10. SOEbuc Says:

    ^^He is the union rep for the team, right?^^

  11. TampaTown Says:

    Congratulations Mike! We’re all enjoying watching you become a man. Very proud of you. If I could have one wish, it’s that you’re the most talked about WR after the Giants game, and the #1 fantasy WR for that week as well. Do us all a favor and put a smack down on OBJ and those overly smug NY Giants and their equally obnoxious fans.

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    Why do you have 6 captains, shouldn’t it just be one? The most you can reasonably argue for is 3, one for each unit, but 6 seems absurd. Not a comment on the players, just the everyone gets a trophy mentality. Probably in a few years the teams will have 53 captains – just wait, some hack “players” coach will do just that.

  13. SOEbuc Says:

    Yeah kinda agree Rod. Captain to me means top dog, but I don’t even know what being a captain means, if anything, on a team.

  14. unbelievable Says:

    They’ve had 2 on each unit for quite some time… Not really a big deal. Maybe you guys would prefer it be more like hockey, with 1 captain and 2 assistants/alternates?

  15. webster Says:

    Now we complain about the amount of captains a team have? Only tampa fan. Football teams for years have had multiple captains. Maybe brooks and barber didnt deserve to serve as captains on defense together? Its really nothing to see here.

  16. Batman Wood Says:

    We have 6 captains because it’s the most you can send out to midfield for the opening coin toss and it recognizes the leaders on the team. You can’t have enough leaders.

  17. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Well said, batman!

  18. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Batman for the win. Man some people here choose the smallest things to get their panties in a wad.

    Captains in football are CEREMONIAL! It’s not like they win or lose the coin toss and it’s not like they decide whether to receive or kick if we win the toss…Coach DK does that.

    It’s not like hockey where the three selected to be Captain and two assistants actually have power…as in being the only guys on the ice who are allowed to approach the officials about calls. It’s not a pure popularity contest either…coaches have final say although I’m sure they take the temp of their locker room. But the C and the two A’s in the NHL are actually quite important.
