Default Hi

Hi all.

Just wanted to make a quick introduction in this thread as a fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

As you may guess by my username I do like the Bucs and the Jags. Tampa Bay being my NFC Team and Jacksonville my AFC team. Florida is the first state I visited in America and Ray Jay was the first NFL stadium I visited.

The next time I went to Florida the Jaguars had been formed and went to what is now known as Everbank Field. Both great experiences and as such decided to follow both teams.

Have been to see both teams at Wembley too. Again great experiences.

Was expectant for the Bucs last season but unfortunately it didn't work out. McCown is an average QB but has never really shone apart from the half season he had with the Bears as the starter so not surprised we've moved on.

That being said not entirely sure on picking Winston for the draft is a good idea. Couple of months yet so we'll see what Lovie and Jason decide to do.

Anyway just thought I'd say Hi to fellow Bucs fans, and here's hoping for a better 2015/16 season.

Not sure about drafting Winston though.

I'd be more comfortable supporting Mariota as the Bucs QB.

Just not sure with Winston's issues in College if he is the right guy Tampa Bay should be taking.

Mariota visited the Bucs on Monday. Probably didn't make enough of an impression for the Bucs to say they should be taking this guy over Winston but would be nice if he did.

I really don't get why Glennon doesn't get a chance nowadays. He's shown some real good play and looked great two seasons ago as the starter.

Guess Lovie and the front office has a plan.

Hey guys!! I'm a Bucs fan who's new to the forum as well, so "Hi"!!

I actually came to supporting the Bucs in a very similar way to you BucsJag, on holiday, thought I'd try it, and fell in love with the team and the game...that was 6 years ago now!

I am surprised you guys don't fancy Winston. He has an almost perfect college record, has the size and strength to play pro, and will fit into Lovie's offence without too many changes. Plus, he seems to really want to play for us...Mariota's interview on his visit was a disgrace, looked like he'd rather have been in down-town Bagdhad than in Tampa!

Obviously, he has had off the field issues but I don't see the point in slaughtering a guy for what he's done at 19/20/21, we all make mistakes at that age, I know I did!!

Go Bucs!!

Hey dude. Welcome to the thread.

Yeah going to RJ stadium was an awesome experience and Tampa Bay as a city is so great. Heck Florida in general is just awesome.

I'm prepared to give Winston a chance. The off field issues do raise concern but as mentioned if he's prepared to put in the work and not cause further issues off the field then fair enough. Just don't want another QB situation that we had recently drafting Josh Freeman to the team.

Winston's pro day was held today BTW and he apparently received mixed reviews but is still expected to be the number one pick. He seems to be a good reader of the game though.

See what happens in the draft though.

Again dude welcome to the thread.
