The Bay Cave:
Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy plays with some of the highest intensity you’ll see out of a defensive tackle any given week. Unfortunately for the fourth year player out of Oklahoma, that intensity made a dent in his wallet. After a couple reports that McCoy was fined $15,750 for his roughing the passer penalty last Sunday, the league confirmed to TheBayCave.com that the...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Buccaneers are heading north to play the Lions without their starting middle linebacker Mason Foster. Below is the list of Bucs players on Friday’s injury report and their status for Sunday’s game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano might not even be with the team come the 2014 NFL Draft, but if he is, he won’t rule out drafting a quarterback – this according to JoeBucsFan.
Mike Glennon, who has taken over the starting quarterback duties has played extremely well, especially given the sub-par talent on the team. That said, claiming him as the quarterback of the...
Just a few weeks ago, it appeared that Greg Schiano’s job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could end at any point. The Team started the season with eight straight losses, and had exiled the team’s former franchise quarterback after Josh Freeman and Schiano could not work out their differences. A lot has changed since then. The Buccaneers have won their last two games, beating...
Bobby Rainey. The type of guy who makes fantasy football writers swell up and grin. I made that guy Creeper of the Week and a few days later he tears off 167 yards on 32 touches for three touchdowns. He just won my Keenan Allen Award. Witness that and nothing else I’ve ever said and I look real smart.
I feel summer creepin’ in and I’m tired of this town again... Read more
The Buccaneers have gone from laughingstocks of the NFL early this season to playing good football recently, and the progress of rookie quarterback Mike Glennon has been a big part of that.
Coach Greg Schiano said today that Glennon, whom Schiano installed as the starting quarterback after benching Josh Freeman after Week Three, has proved that he’s the man for the job.
NFL scouts and coaches have a nickname for players like Dekoda Watson. Because they don’t quite fit the mold created for any one specific position, they are called “tweeners.’’
Watson, who has the speed and quickness to be a defensive end or an outside linebacker but lacks the size and power to be either, would rather be called a “hybrid.’’ It has a more positive connotation...
Don’t look now but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won two straight and travel to Detroit with a chance to upset the NFC North-leading Lions.
Linebacker Mason Foster has been ruled out after suffering a concussion last week. The only other Buccaneer to be ruled out is guard Carl Nicks, who’s still hoping to return from foot surgery before the end of the season.

Greg Cosell of NFL Films told CBS Radio in Tampa that Buccaneers rookie quarterback Mike Glennon is having the best season of any rookie signal caller in the NFL right now. “I think they (the Bucs) are getting really quality quarterback play from Mike Glennon, who is without question the best rookie quarterback in this class,” Greg Cosell said in his weekly appearance on Fan...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are carrying a “high” into this Sunday’s game against the Lions in Detroit. Tampa Bay has won back-to-back games now and have been playing good football the past two weeks. The jury is still out for the Bucs though because both victories were against teams that are struggling in Miami and Atlanta. If they beat Detroit, some doubters may lay off a bit...
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-8) at Detroit Lions (6-4)
The Buccaneers may just be 2-8, but they are better than their record. Before the season, I said they had 7 of the top-200 players in the NFL (Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks, Dashon Goldson, Darrelle Revis, Gerald McCoy, Doug Martin, and Lavonte David). Doug Martin is out for the season, Carl Nicks is out indefinitely, and Dashon Goldson...
Buccaneers’ cornerback Darrelle Revis has not been 100 percent for most of the season. Now that he is getting back to his comfort level, he and the Bucs are looking forward to defending Detroit Lions’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson — or as the kids call him these days, Megatron. Revis, who stands 5-11, will be looking up to Johnson (6-5) when he lines up against him on Sunday...

On Sunday the Detroit Lions will host the suddenly hot Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Detroit (6-4) is looking to make a playoff push while Tampa Bay (2-8) has won two games in a row.
Coverage of the game between the Buccaneers and Lions will air on FOX beginning at 1:00 pm ET from Ford Field in Detroit, MI.
Did these guys win a playoff game when I wasn’t looking or something?
It’s downright light and airy at Bucs Central — amazing what two victories, over an average Dolphins team and the mailing-it-in Falcons, will do.
It’s as if 0-8 has been scrubbed away like the MRSA for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Greg Schiano’s grin is spreading. He is joking with media. Two of his leaders...
