When you’re watching a football game and a graphic comes across the screen telling you that one of the teams is the least penalized team in the league, that is typically seen as a positive characteristic. The fewer the penalties, the more disciplined the team. That’s the line of thinking for many fans and coaches, but not for new Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano. In his opinion, if you aren’t getting penalized you aren’t giving it your all. “The silly penalties are the ones where you line up offsides. That’s just silly, right?” Schiano said during an interview with WDAE’s Ron and Ian on Tuesday. “You’re just not paying attention to details. And then there’s the execution penalties, where you’re playing hard and you happen to fly over the top and hit somebody out of the hit zone. You’re going to get a penalty for that.

Vincent Jackson's Claim That Josh Freeman Is 'Top-Five' Quarterback Nothing Short of Laughable

There's a lot of crummy quarterbacks in the NFL. And while Josh Freeman might not be one of them, he's certainly not as good as his teammate, Vincent Jackson, believes. In fact, Jackson's confidence is downright laughable. Jackson, who is entering his first season in Tampa Bay, spoke highly of his new Buccaneers squad on Monday, but it's his comment regarding Freeman...

Buccaneers ready for a fresh start

With a new head coach, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look like a team not to be reckoned with. Greg Schiano has jumped on this year after being in college ball for years. After being stuck at 4-12 last year, there needed to be a change. From the sideline talk, Schiano seems to be taking the [...]

Tampa top receiver Jackson to draw crowd

Vincent Jackson was signed to be a No. 1 receiver, something the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have rarely had in nearly four decades in the NFL. Jackson, who proved a deep threat in seven seasons with the San Diego Chargers, is the only proven veteran on a young receiving corps that will look to him for leadership and touchdowns. The Bucs plan to line him up in several different spots...

Report: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Interested in Olympian/Former Gator Jeff Demps

Apparently Greg Schiano hasn't seen enough speed or playmaking in the return game during training camp because he is looking for an upgrade. As first reported by PewterReport.com, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are interested in signing Olympic sprinter and former Florida Gators RB/WR Jeff Demps. Demps just got back from London where he helped the U.S. win a silver medal in the...

Bucs have little to show for linemen drafted high

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have little to show for the four first- and second-round picks they spent on defensive linemen in the drafts of 2010 and 2011. It's a high priority of new coach Greg Schiano to get some production from that unit. The Bucs have continued to rank near the bottom of the league in most defensive categories, especially those reflecting strength in the defensive...

AP Photo According to Gil Arcia of The Bay Cave, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are close to signing former Florida running back and Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps. “To confirm on an earlier report from Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com, a source with knowledge of the two sides confirmed with TheBayCave.com that the signing is imminent and the Bucs are not just interested, but are...

Mike Williams Faring Well in Training Camp

Tampa Bay receiver Mike Williams is apparently having a good training camp, including an improved work ethic, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Fantasy Spin:Offseason reports had Preston Parker challenging for the spot. Even an improved Williams may not get back to 2010 levels (65-964-11) due to the arrival of Vincent Jackson and a head coach who loves the running game.

Orlovsky proving a perfect tutor for Freeman

TAMPA, Fla. In a funny way, Dan Orlovsky may boast the perfect resume as the new No. 2 quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Scroll down his list occupational experiences to 2008 and youll notice the distinct historical connection he shares with the Bucs. Orlovsky was a backup on the woeful Detroit Lions club that became the NFLs first 0-16 team linking him, at least in...

Jackson looks to end Bucs' sub-par trends at WR

Vincent Jackson's challenge with the Buccaneers seems formidable. After signing a five-year deal worth more than $55 million, the 29-year-old Jackson comes in as Tampa Bay's No. 1 receiver - a role that has not been played with much success. The Bucs (No. 26 in the AP Pro32) have brought in many veteran receivers to be their top guy - Alvin Harper, Keyshawn Johnson, Joey...

Fantasy Football Strategy: Think Like An NFL Coach

We fantasy football owners see things in a different light. We hate rotations, uncertainty, conservative offensive play calling and are extremely stubborn, even resentful to those who have wronged us in the past. We want bell-cow running backs that never lose carries along the goal-line and want every deep pass to hit our targets. Fantasy owners, in a way, are watching a different...
