Gators’ Trask stays hot in ‘ho-hum’ victory

November 22, 2020 general

Sunday, 4 a.m. They can score faster than you. They can score more repeatedly. They can score until their opponent grows weary of lining up for extra points.

Who should make the Pro Bowl for Bucs?

November 19, 2020 general

Thursday, 4 a.m. There are a lot of things wrong with the Pro Bowl, a grand excuse for player to dress up and act like they’re playing football. In reality, it has as much to do with football as the movie “The Longest Yard.” But there is one cool thing about the Pro Bowl. Making […]

Bucs’ Jones has blossomed into a weapon

November 18, 2020 general

Wednesday, 4 p.m. The worst prognosticator in the world is your local weatherman. Despite all the radar, despite all the weather systems, that guy has zero idea of where a hurricane is going or where it will hit. It’s like God is throwing knuckleballs, and everything is a moving green screen. Me? I am second. […]

Looking back at the Bucs’ win over the Panthers

November 17, 2020 general

5 Thoughts I read where some people think that, despite his 300-yard game and three touchdowns,Tom Brady was “off” against the Panthers. Really?

Bucs hope to bounce back to sweep Panthers

November 14, 2020 general

Saturday, 4 a.m. Sometimes, the wind blows the other direction. Sometimes, the coin lands on the opposite side. Some days you win. Some days you lose. And so it goes in pro football.

Bucs still searching for offensive identity

November 13, 2020 general

Friday, 4 a.m. Winning lasts a matter of seconds. It is over, and you grin, and you go back to work. Losing? Losing lingers. Ask Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady, who has lost only 64 of 283 games over his career. The defeats can gnaw at you. “I remember pretty much all the losses,’ Brady said […]
