  1. So where is mention of DeSean Jackson, Jamaal Jackson, and Todd Herremans visiting that bullying victim yesterday on TV? Oh, right, its not scandalous. PFT doesn’t cover good guy stuff.

  2. Mike Williams should probably just focus on continuing the great success he had this year. The entire team should, as long as their is a season next year. I have a feeling the rest will work itself out. Sweeping the Falcons and Saints whenever the next season happens is a must. They take care of their division, then the path to the playoffs becomes easier, as it is for most teams in the league. Except the poor Raiders. How could they go 6-0 in the division and miss out on the playoffs. Really, only a few teams could pull that off.

    In the end, I think the playoffs are in the future/cards for the Buccs….Superbowl…maybe, maybe not, but I do think they can make some noise for a few years to come in the post-season. Got to get a great pass rush, a shut down corner to go with Talib and shore up that offensive line, and let Blount run more, and lastly, Keep T-Jack, Talib, Williams and Blount all out of trouble. Hopefully, they are young, they will mature and grow up and become not only great football players but great leaders and men too, kind of like some other TB greats. (Brooks, Dunn, Alstott, Lynch and Barber all come to mind)

  3. First smart thing to come out of Romanowski’s mouth in 25 years….and I thought he’d spit in his face.

  4. The Bucs snatched lots of leftovers during roster cuts and had them contribute. The leftovers they signed (there are a lot): LaGarrette Blount, Kregg Lumpkin, Chris Bryan, Larry Asante, Dez Briscoe, and now Ted Larson. I’m sure I’m forgetting others.
