  1. It seems like there have been a slew of safeties getting in recently. On the one hand, everyone getting in ahead of Lynch has cleared the deck for him. On the other hand, maybe the voters will have a bit of “safety fatigue” and ignore the position for a few years. Who knows.

    Manchester United vs Bucaneers

    I think you pretty much nailed the financials. The Glazers leveraged their ownership of the Bucs to buy Manchester United, but put themselves in a serious financial hole to do it. As for the Bucs, I wouldn't say that they don't have a commitment to winning, but that the sons have managed the team quite poorly over the years after their father got sick and died. Rich McKay was the general manager in place in 2001 when the Glazers traded away a lot of high value picks to hire Jon Gruden to be their head coach. Gruden won a Super Bowl his first year as head coach in 2002. But, McKay and Gruden couldn't get along together. So, McKay was shown the door and the Glazers permitted Gruden to bring in a "yes man" to be his general manager when it came to drafting players and going after players in free agency. Gruden the player personnel decision maker eventually got Gruden the head coach fired (despite Gruden at least making it to the playoffs his last 2 years). Gruden got shown the door after the 2008 seasons and mediocrity ensued for the next decade, aside from one 10-6 and one 9-7 year (no playoffs either time). Bad coaching hires followed. No head coach has lasted more than 3 years. And the general managers in place assembling the teams has sucked. Of course, it didn't help when the Glazers, in 2014, hired Lovie Smith to be their head coach before they had a new general manager in place.

    Lynch a HOF Finalist Again

    It doesn’t help that Troy Polamalu is a finalist this year. So far, Lynch has been squeezed out (and understandably so) by other safeties and first time finalists when he has made it this far.

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    Newsflash. Arians says the pick six was Winston’s fault (who knew?): Arians called it a bad decision. "It sure looked like it," Arians said. "He was covered. He was going to his favorite guy, but he was covered."

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    Fitz was the Dolphins leading rusher this year with less than 300 yards on the ground. What he did in Miami given all the players they traded this year was nothing short of amazing.

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    True. He is also a former number 1 overall pick that was blessed to throw to an elite #1 receiver, but also cursed to play for a team with shit ownership and a terrible general manager. Hence, Stafford has had a lot of losing seasons and never really seemed to up his game. He is what he is. For all our sakes, things will improve for Winston going forward.

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    My preferred Winston comparison (for now), Matt Stafford, is tied for 11th with 20 pick sixes. Stafford is also one of only 8 qb’s with a 5000 yard passing season.

    Brett Favre leads all time with 32. Peyton Manning is fourth all time with 27.

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    Since people like to compare Winston to Favre and Manning, here is a nice stat. Most picks in a season since Favre in 2005. And now more pick sixes in a season, breaking Manning’s record. Take the bad with the good, I guess.

    Bucs give up a TD on first drive

    A kicker picked up off the street in the middle of the season, no less. We waste covered draft picks on ours.

    This is way too easy. Wide open receivers all over the place

    Time for another kicker.

    Winston pick into double coverage.
  14. I can see the Bucs trying to give Winston a deal similar to what the Dolphins gave Ryan Tannehill when his rookie contract was ending. A 5 year extension with good guaranteed money, where the team can cut him after year 2 with no cap ramifications. Kind of a prove it deal. Didn't work out for the Dolphins too well because Tannehill got hurt in one of the years and missed the season.

    So, Compared to a Year Ago Today

    I mean it in the sense that non-Buc fans don't get upset and worry about the outcome of the game when Winston throws one of his patented first quarter pick-sixes. Stats-wise he is no doubt the best quarterback this franchise has ever had. A gunslinger that throws for a ton of yards, touchdowns and a ton of picks too. Maybe he will eventually be our Brett Favre. For now, he is our Matt Stafford.

    So, Compared to a Year Ago Today

    I love the optimism of this board. All the teeth gnashing over the inexplicable Brate drop late in the 4th taking the focus away from two picks within the first 5 minutes of the game that spotted the Texans an easy 10 points. Winston has great entertainment value for non-Bucs fans. He keeps both teams in the game and puts up eye popping fantasy stats.

    Warning Warning Danger Danger

    After dominating the first half, the offense is sputtering too.

    I 'm waiting for the day that the winning record comparison can be made between Winston and Manning.

    One pass..one pick

    Looks like Perriman made the catch. A better pass might have been a score.
