Bucs’ Dirk Koetter disagrees with Jon Gruden on play call

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The current coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs said that a third-and-run had nothing to do with a lack of confidence in quarterback Jameis Winston, no matter what a former coach of the Bucs says. The call, which came late in the game as the Bucs beat the Carolina Panthers, 17-14, was part of the Bucs’ conservative game-plan. Coach Dirk Koetter said it had nothing to with Winston, although former coach Jon Gruden disagreed. “That wasn’t a lack of confidence,”…

Roberto Aguayo hits game-winning field goal for Bucs on Monday Night

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Perhaps you think it should matter that Carolina was without star Cam Newton. It doesn’t. Perhaps you think it should matter that the Panthers are off to a simply dreadful start. It doesn’t. Perhaps you think it should matter that Roberto Aguayo missed two field goals before nailing the winner. It doesn’t. For the Tampa Bay Bucs, 2-0 in their division, there isn’t a lot of taking away from their 17-14 victory over the Carolina Panthers Monday night. With their…

Do Bucs have to learn to live with Jameis Winston’s mistakes?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Is Jameis Winston, quarterback of the Tampa Bay Bucs, a gunslinger? Are interceptions something the Bucs are going to have to learn to live with? Winston, so far, has thrown eight interceptions in four weeks. He got off to a similar start last season with seven. “I don’t know if you ever want to accept it, but I do think that that’s something to build around,” said Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Todd Monken. “I’ve always believed that guys that are…

Bucs think rookie Vernon Hargreaves III is showing progress

in Sports/Top Headlines by

One month into his career, Tampa Bay Bucs rookie Vernon Hargreaves has played decently. But so far, he hasn’t made a major impact in the Bucs’ secondary. That might change Monday night, when the Bucs play the NFC Champion Carolina Panthers and their big receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olson. Hargreaves played last week on the outside for the Bucs rather than divide time. “I think he likes it better, where he’s not moving in and out,” Bucs’ coach Dirk…

One month in, Jameis Winston’s turnover woes have returned

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The more Jameis Winston of the Tampa Bay Bucs has thrown the football this season, the more doubts have resurfaced. In four games this season, Winston has thrown eight interceptions. A year ago, he threw seven in his first four games. “Oh yeah, it needs to be discussed,” Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said. “I have not talked to Jameis today, I’m sure I will here at some point, but it definitely needs to be discussed. And Jameis has always been fantastic…

Bucs show how short of the Super Bowl champs they are

in Sports/Top Headlines by

So how much difference is there between the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos and the Tampa Bay Bucs? Well, it turns out, a lot. Like 20 points. Like 98 yards. Like three turnovers. Like a 4-0 start against a 1-3 start. Like an efficient quarterback (and backup) with a 141.7 rating against a scatter-armed one who had a 40.1. Like that. The Broncos took an easy 27-7 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday, breaking a 7-7 tie in the first…

Will the Bucs’ Mike Evans match up against Aqib Talib?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Sunday’s anticipated matchup between the old (Aqib Talib) and the new (Mike Evans) might not happen, says Tampa Bay Bucs coach Dirk Koetter. The Denver Broncos may prefer Chris Harris to cover Evans. “We’ve talked about the matchup with Talib,” Koetter said. “But Harris is a really good corner too. They’ve both been to the Pro Bowl the last couple of years, and I’m not sure if Denver’s going to match [Evans with Talib]. Usually, Denver just plays sides, so…
