McCown takes his place among bad Buc QBs

in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

Thursday, 9:21 a.m.


Throwin' Samoan? Meet the Ball's-on-the-Ground McCown.

Bruce Gradkowski? Meet Josh McCownski.

Sleepy Josh Freeman? Meet Snoozing Josh McCown.

Steve Spurrier? Randy Hedberg? Jerry Goldsteyn. Move over. Chris Simms? Gary Huff? Byron Leftwich? You have company.

This, then, is his legacy. In the years to come, we will remember Josh McCown as a genuine guy who just wasn't big enough for the job. He wanted to be good, and he worked to be good. In the end, however, he was not skilled enough to make a bad offense better.

For the Tampa Bay Bucs, there have been so many bad seasons and so many bad quarterbacks. It has always gone hand in hand. There have been so many passers that the Bucs have counted on to be the best player on their team, and one by one, they have been a conga line of failure.
