Darrelle Revis: Bucs need to make some changes


Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is in line for one of those cushy analyst gigs when he’s done with football.

Because while he wasn’t advocating a coaching change, he did say Thursday that the Buccaneers needed to do something differently so they’re not sitting around 4-11 this time next year.

I think we do need to change some things this offseason as we move forward as players and as coaches and figure things out and try to turn the win-loss column to more wins,’’ Revis said, via Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com. “There are some adjustments we’ve got to make in the offseason, but we will. We’ll do that and try to turn things around.

“After every season, you’ve always got to evaluate yourself. That’s the process. You’ve got to evaluate yourself as a player and as coaches as well. We’ve all got to do it and try to figure out a way to be better in 2014.’’

Revis said he’d be happy to consult with the decision-makers on that process, if need be.

“This is my seventh year,’’ Revis said. “After every year I’ve talked to coaches and players and tried to figure out a way how we can be better the next year. I’m sure the coaches are going to be very open to that and players are going to be very open to talking and try to figure out what was the problem and what we need to fix moving forward to be a better team next year.”

At this point, no one is certain who the coach is going to be. But if there is a change, the new guy will be comforted to know Revis has some suggestions.

If Revis has any ideas on finding a quarterback or a pass rusher, or eradicating MRSA, I’m sure his boss would welcome those as well.
