Now, more than ever, the Bucs are Jameis Winston’s football team

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The defense is playing better. More receivers are getting open. The safeties have been very good. Punter Ryan Anger has been special. But for the Tampa Bay Bucs, the key is still quarterback Jameis Winston. “When Jameis takes care of the football, we’re tough,” said Bucs’ coach Dirk Koetter Wednesday. “We’ve got to take care of the football, that’s everybody. The main thing that we’re doing better in the last few weeks is we’re getting turnovers and we’re not turning…

Bucs’ Roberto Aguayo finally living up to his draft expectations

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Don’t look now — or maybe risk one eye — but THIS is the field goal kicker the Bucs thought enough of to draft in the second round. Maybe it’s hard for you to admit it, but Roberto Aguayo is on a hot streak. Yeah, yeah, early in the season, it was fashionable to doubt Aguayo, the rookie from Florida State. But Aguayo hit four field goals Sunday in a 19-17 victory over Kansas City, and the Bucs needed them all. In fact,…

Bucs edge Kansas City behind Chris Conte’s big interception

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For most of the season, he has been a target. If not of opposing quarterbacks, then of his team’s own fans. Chris Conte has played too much chase, critics will tell you. He needs to be replaced. But Conte made the play of the game Sunday, as the Tampa Bay Bucs upset the Kansas City Chiefs 19-17. With the Chiefs on the verge of taking a lead in the fourth quarter, Conte stepped in front of Chiefs’ receiver Chris Conley,…

Bucs’ Mike Evans sits over Donald Trump’s election despite not voting

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Tampa Bay Bucs’ wide receiver Mike Evans will not stand for Donald Trump‘s presidency. Evans, the Bucs’ starting receiver, sat during the national anthem on Sunday. He said later the reason was Trump’s election. “I’m not a big fan of politics or anything like that,” Evans said. “But I told myself, ‘If this happens, America is not right, right now. When he ran, I thought it was a joke. The joke continues.” Evans admitted he did not vote. Bucs’ coach…

Bucs’ quarterback Jameis Winston leads huge victory over Chicago

in Sports/Top Headlines by

You may debate where you think Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston is among NFL quarterbacks. It’s pretty clear, however, that he’s better than Chicago’s Jay Cutler. Winston had one of his better games Sunday in a 36-10 victory over Chicago, and Cutler had one of his worst. Winston threw for 312 yards, completing 19 passes to players other than Mike Evans. Cutler, on the other hand, threw two interceptions, had two fumbles and took four sacks, including a safety. The…

Tampa Bay Bucs’ defense riddled in lopsided loss to Atlanta

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Last year, it was Lovie. This year, it is Mike. And for the Tampa Bay Bucs, the result has been the same old Smith. Once again, the Bucs’ defense let them down Thursday night in a 43-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons that really wasn’t that close. In a matter of days, the Bucs have given up 1,087 yards, 58 first downs and 73 points in back-to-back losses to the Raiders and Falcons. Tampa Bay beat Atlanta, 31-24, in the…

Raiders’ penalties don’t help hapless Bucs in overtime

in Sports/Top Headlines by

For a moment, the Tampa Bay Bucs had hope. For a moment, they had opportunity. Neither of them lasted. It was overtime, and the Bucs had just taken over on a missed field goal. They were at their own 42, a couple of first downs from a field goal try that would potentially win the game. And they went nowhere. On first down, Jameis Winston threw long, as he tried throughout the game. Incomplete. On second down, he threw for…
