In 1987, the Bucs were better off with strike-breakers than their actual players

A trip back in time.

Way back in 1987, NFL players struck for four games. One of those games was cancelled, and three of them were played with replacement players—including a few of the players association’s players who crossed picket lines.

The result was some terrible, no-good football and the breaking of the strike after a third game of replacement games. And for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, amusingly, those three games led to two wins and one loss.

That’s amusing because the Bucs...

Jameis Winston brings the heat in first pitch at Rays game

The Buccaneers quarterback was a two-sport athlete at Florida State. He was particularly effective as a reliever in 2014, racking up...

The Buccaneers are an equal-opportunity passing offense

Whether a player lines up in the slot or out wide, the Bucs will throw to him. Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were pretty even in their distribution of targets. At least if we look at players in the slot vs players out wide. Football Outsiders did just that and found that Winston targeted slot players about 1.5 times as often as wideouts, which was slightly above average. That’s not that much given the fact that two of his best three targets (Cameron Brate and Adam Humphries) played...

Jameis Winston’s third season could look a lot like Andrew Luck’s

Luck got to the conference championship game that season. Comparing Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota used to be the hot thing to do, but for some reason I haven’t seen that many direct comparisons the past year. Mike Tanier of Bleacher Report thought it was a good idea to frame his analysis that way, pitting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback against the Tennessee Titans’ signal caller. The final conclusion is that Mariota is likely to do better this year, with less production than...

Ike Taylor expects big things from Vernon Hargreaves

The Bucs’ cornerback has at least one fan. Vernon Hargreaves is an interesting player.
