Hard Knocks: Dancing with trees, rescuing goats

Hardly knocking, week three:

The longer training camp goes, the harder it is to watch. That's not just true with the Bucs. That's part of the preseason. True of Hard Knocks, too. The third episode wasn't as delicious as the first two.

Still, there were moments:

Jameis Winston is still talking, still cheering, still in charge of the daily mood of his team. As Hard Knocks continues, you keep seeing the good and the bad of Winston. He's still a likeable dude, but this week's episode showed that Winston can still drive a coach crazy. His brain-cramp pass against Dirk Koetter demonstrated that. But it also showed a good side to Koetter, who was infuriated by the decision. Still, he pointed out to Winston what a good night he was having “and then you do that.”

There is plenty of Chris Baker. Can we please see more of him? Baker is a genuinely funny man, even if he isn't dancing with a tree. I loved when he turned to Jacksvonville fans and said “Ya'll have to be the angriest fans in the world” and guessed they might win three games.

How cool is Ali Marpet as he sits at the beach with his ukelele?

Nice that the cameras still like Doug Martin. But did anyone else catch Koetter saying that the running back situation was “still a little bit up in the air.” Is it possible that the Bucs pick up another back at the cutdown and waive Martin? Nah. You think?

Personally, I liked that DeSean Jackson wants the ball. Don't all receivers?

Winston could not fathom the idea of rescuing goats. A hoot.

Jon Gruden: “I've got my three kids wearing Jameis Winston jerseys.”

Gerald McCoy and Baker, splitting a hot dog on the sideline. Some places, with some players, that drives fans nuts. This? This is preseason.

Wouldn't you like to see Maurice Fleming get another shot?

If the Bucs are Hard Knocks, are the Jaguars Pillow Fighting?
