It’s August, and Buccaneers football is upon us! Well, not quite, but it’s coming.
The Buccaneers will open their pre-season schedule in the coming week with an opening match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals on 11 August 2017.
Training Camp is at full-speed by now and HBO’s “Hard Knocks” cameras have gotten hours of film on your favorite players and coaches.
What’s coming up is still to be seen, but we know what the talented writers at Pro Football Spot have already brought you this past week.
Let’s take a look.
Sean came up with an interesting list of potential Buccaneers targets for 2018’s pre-season.
Any successful business looks into the future to strategically place their own assets, and I doubt this franchise is any different.
Some, or all, of these names will be gone by the time we get to the real thing. It’s still fun to look at for now.
With Keith Tandy making all the plays he did towards the end of 2016, it’s not hard to see why Buccaneers fans are so excited about his potential.
You can count me in as one of them.
Head coach Dirk Koetter talked about the safety, and it’s clear he’s looking for more of the same this season.
Every week, I do a podcast with James Yarcho of The Pewter Plank, the other site I cover the Buccaneers for.
This week we put out our thoughts on the veteran defensive tackle and talked some fantasy football with one of the leaders of the “Foot Clan”.
Sean’s second contribution to the week’s news and opinions focused around a large publication’s opinion on the Bucs’ final record projection.
Specifically, how it’s too low.
If you haven’t seen Philip Schwegler’s postings on Buccaneers Cornerstones, you really should.
He’s already identified one, and this week he brought us another.
Aaron May of Aaroneous Sports fame gave us his second contribution since joining the site less than a month ago.
In it, he talks about just how valuable each Tampa running back may be in fantasy football.
Strength of schedule always becomes a topic of conversation. The Buccaneers have it no different than any other franchise.
With playoff hopes at stake, how will their opponents stack up against them? TJ evaluated them all, and gave his two cents.
Many Buccaneers fans are surely fans of the annually released Madden NFL football game.
So when Sean saw the ratings given to Jameis Winston for the 2018 version, he had to give us his thoughts on them and more.
Our camp battles series came back this week with an in-depth look at the Buccaneers’ offensive line.
Sam even included his predictions on who would stick and who would walk.
Is the Buccaneers’ McNichols over-hyped? Sean doesn’t think so, and he made his thoughts known on what the rookie might do if healthy.
The Bucss have tons of upside at cornerback.
Just how good might the starting duo be?
According to Scott Smith from Buccaneers.com, the second-year kicker was “lights out” in camp recently.
How does this impact the kicking duel?
