  • Fansided: Tampa Bay Buccaneers face steep odds to win NFC South

    It has been 11 straight years without a playoff appearance for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the odds-makers in Las Vegas are not particularly on their side as they head into 2019 either. Following back-to-back 5-11 seasons and a coaching change, Odds Shark has placed +1200 odds on the Buccaneers to win the NFC South this season.

    If you area bettor and a firm believer in the Buccaneers this year, then these odds could make you a very rich person. However, given the lack of game-changing moves made this offseason, the Buccaneers look to be in a lateral position this season as well.

  • Fansided: Odds set at +400 for Tampa Bay Buccaneers to make playoffs in 2019

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming off of back-to-back 5-11 seasons under former head coach Dirk Koetter, and as a result he was fired and Bruce Arians was hired. There is a large amount of optimism surrounding the team in Tampa Bay, but not so much in Las Vegas.

    The Buccaneers are currently slated, tied with the Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions, with the fourth-worst odds to make the playoffs. The Cincinnati Bengals, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, and Washington are the only teams on the betting sheet with worse odds than the Buccaneers to hit the postseason entering the 2019 season.

  • Fansided: Devin White named biggest standout for Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Bleacher Report has been busy this offseason, covering all 32 NFL teams and dissecting their offseason. Kristopher Knox published an article naming a standout performer for each team during mini-camps, and for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he identified first round pick Devin White as a player already living up to expectations.

    "The Tampa Bay Buccaneers used a fifth overall pick in the draft on former LSU inside linebacker Devin White. That's traditionally been high for an off-ball likebacker. However, in today's NFL, linebackers who can cover and tackle from sideline to sideline are coveted... and it's the kind of defender White has appeared to be during the offseason" (Knox via Bleacher Report).

  • Fansided: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Breaking down depth along the defensive line

    As our series of breaking down every position on the depth chart continues, we move along to the defensive line of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This is a position group that has taken over the news cycle in Tampa Bay, but at the end of the day, may be the room with the least amount of depth on the entire roster.

    Gerald McCoy is gone, and the Buccaneers did not seek to address the position until the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, meaning they will, once again, have to use a high asset on the defensive line just as they did in 2018.

  • Fansided: Jameis Winston is the best quarterback in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been apart of the National Football League for over 40 years now but have not found much success in that time. The biggest reason the Bucs franchise has never experienced a ton of success outside of the 2002 Super Bowl season where one of the best defenses ever win a championship against the Oakland Raiders, is due largely in part to below average quarterback play.

    Most fans when asked who the best quarterback in team history will quickly answer Brad Johnson. Johnson after all is a Super Bowl champion but anyone who watched the Bucs in the early 2000's would know that team was carried by a historic defense.

  • Fansided: Gerald McCoy named Tampa Bay Buccaneers best first round pick of decade

    TouchdownWire's Barry Werner has published a piece in which he seeks to identify each NFL team's best first round pick over the past decade. For the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Werner picked a man who many fans have mixed feelings about in former defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

    McCoy was recently cut by the Buccaneers after nearly a decade of wearing the pewter and red. The disrespect that he feels about the move and the way the team handled it is well documented, and McCoy is now with the NFC South division rival Carolina Panthers.

  • Tampa Tribune: Why the Jameis Winston-Peyton Manning comparison is a bad one

    Examining Jameis Winston's interceptions is like interpreting Rorschach inkblots. Everyone's going to tell a different story.

    In his four seasons in the NFL, Winston has thrown 58 picks. That's either a lot or not all that many.

    Buccaneers quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen's take: "Your first four years, you throw a bunch of interceptions," he told Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer recently.

    That's true for some quarterbacks. Vinny Testaverde (81), Peyton Manning (81) and Jake Plummer (80) threw a bunch. Bernie Kosar (33), Russell Wilson (34) and Tom Brady (38), however, did not.

    Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (46) also threw fewer interceptions than Winston, "but they ran the ball in Atlanta, he went to a little bit better football team," Christensen said.

  • Fansided: Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Evans gets special abilities in Madden 20

    For a handful of years leading up to this point, EA Sport's Madden games have been just about the same game with some slight tweaks every year. This year, however, EA Sports is adding features that allows the best players in the league to have special abilities; Mike Evans is the only player on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to receive an ability.

    Evans is actually give three abilities in Madden 20 due to his star power and five straight seasons with 1,000 yards receiving. The three abilities are called "Double Me," "Streak Specialist," and "Curl Specialist.
