Remember Tampa Bay’s best moments

April 2, 2020 general

There have been a lot of bad days. There have been a lot of bad players. There have been bad coaches calling bad plays for bad players. There have been draft picks who fizzled and free agents who flopped. There have been a lot of dejected fans trudging from dejecting games. We haven’t exactly witnessed […]

The Bucs need more help than Tom Brady

March 31, 2020 general

Tuesday, 3 a.m. They matter again. The Tampa Bay Bucs are no longer an endangered species. These days, the Bucs are an easy headline braced by star power. That said, however, they are not cured. In certain quarters, the only question is just how big the Bucs will win in the coming season, how far […]

Can you imagine a return of our sports?

March 29, 2020 general

Sunday, 4 a.m. The sights. The deep green of the grass, and the uniformed men frolicking on it. The gleaming white of the baseball. The father and son, both wearing baseball gloves, sitting by the rail. The sudden intake of breath as two hockey players drop their gloves. The cornerback who is hopelessly beaten, so […]

Brady’s first message to the Bucs is a positive one

March 25, 2020 general

Wednesday, 4 a.m. You don’t have to love English Literature to know who Shakespeare is. You don’t have to be a fan of space flight to know all about Neal Armstrong. You don’t have to be a basketball fan to have heard of Michael Jordan. And so, when Tom Brady’s voice could finally be heard, […]

Why won’t a team offer Winston a position?

March 22, 2020 general

Sunday, 4 a.m. Would you buy a broken promise from this man? He is 26 years old, and already, he has 70 starts in the NFL. He’s thrown for 19.787 yards. He’s thrown for 121 touchdowns in five seasons. And these days, Jameis Winston can’t get a job. Winston is in limbo. He has no […]

Which 10 Bucs can Brady help the most?

March 21, 2020 general

Saturday, 4 a.m. If Tom Brady is still Tom Brady, the Tom Brady, the Pro Bowl and the Greatest of All-Time (or at least, the greatest Bucs’ quarterback of all-time), then he’s going to help everyone. Probably, he will make your Sundays go a little better, too. But that’s the greatest asset of a great […]

Head to head, how might Brady and Winston do?

March 19, 2020 general

Thursday, 4 a.m. He’s better. No rational man would deny it. In any game, Tom Brady trumps Jameis Winston, and it isn’t close. The Tampa Bay Bucs have been wrong about a great number of things in their history, but this is not one of them. Despite the age, despite the cost, despite the adjustment […]

Brady’s signing would bring hope back to Bucs

March 18, 2020 general

Wednesday, 4 a.m. Try not to think about the miles he has traveled. Try only to think about the moments he has accomplished. Tom Brady is 42 years old. He has been sacked 500 times, and hit countless others. His right arm has thrown 9,988 passes, and that’s just in the regular season. Who knows […]

Bucs bring back their pass rush with new deals

March 17, 2020 general

Tuesday, 4 a.m. We can assume that Shaq Barrett got there with speed. He shot off the line, and he closed in on the deal in a heartbeat. He was always a quick player, that Barrett, so should it be any different when he was rushing Jason Licht’s checkbook? Jason Pierre-Paul, however, was more about […]

Monday, 4 a.m. Gentlemen, start your yachts. The war is over. The rich guys won. Again. Here in the land with no sports, the guys who run the NFL have won again. They got their 17th game, and they got their extra week of playoffs, and they got a decade’s worth of labor peace.They have […]
