The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are heading into the 2012 season with a complete overhaul of the coaching staff with much of the roster changed as well. Veteran CB Aqib Talib is looking forward to the new environment surrounding the new team and is currently being mentored by Buccaneers great, Derrick Brooks. Talib was facing a possible prison sentence this offseason while facing felony gun charges which stemmed from an incident in Texas last offseason during the NFL lockout. Shortly before he was scheduled to go to trial, charges against Talib were dropped by the Dallas County State Attorney’s office. Despite the fact that charges have been dropped, there has been no official word from the league office regarding a possible suspension. Given the fact that the incident occurred during the NFL lockout, it remains the be seen if the league office will suspend Talib.

Discipline was a major problem for the Buccaneers under Raheem Morris, which is why they lost 10 straight to finish last season and why Morris was predictably fired.

Vincent Jackson Catching On In Tampa

Same old V-Jax Juan… According to reports out of camp, Vincent Jackson is the best player in Tampa Bay. He is routinely beating Talib on long passes and is really passing the good ‘ol eye test.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Greg Schiano Runs Tight Ship

Greg Schiano has a plan. Whether or not it will work remains to be seen, but make no mistake about it -- he's has a plan. The only thing straighter than the crease in Schiano's khakis could be that marine-like jaw. That, or his approach towards people. Not just players or coaches, but people in general.  I recently had the pleasure of meeting coach Schiano, face to face...

Bucs have found a new formula for team building

I was chief among the Raheem Morris supporters since he was promoted to Head Coach in 2009.

Freeman geared to get Buccaneers back to postseason
