Bucs vs Eagles: Winners and Losers

Bucs vs Eagles: Winners and Losers

Tampa Bay’s offense exploded for the second time in two games as the Buccaneers reach 2-0 for the first time in eight years. Wow, who would’ve thought a month ago that Tampa Bay would be 2-0 through its first two games without the suspended Jameis Winston? Not me, I can tell you that. Regardless, the Buccaneers are headed into a Monday night tilt with the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers after knocking off the defending champs, 27-21. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a historic showing behind another solid performance from the offensive line. Defensively, the Bucs did enough to limit Philadelphia...

DeSean Jackson weighs in on upcoming quarterback decision

How does D-Jax think the Bucs should handle the quarterback position? Everyone knows the decision looming ahead for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With quarterback Jameis Winston suspended for three games, many expected the team to flop out to an 0-3 start. My, what a world we live in. One month ago, the Bucs were one of the lowest rated teams in power rankings, mock drafts, Madden, everything. Now, DeSean Jackson leads the league in receiving and Ryan Fitzpatrick is the hottest quarterback in the media since Joe Namath guaranteed victory. So, how does the leading receiver see his team’s...

A look into the plays of the game leading to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ victory against the Philadelphia Eagles Not many - including fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - predicted a 2-0 start. Partially because of diminished confidence following a disappointing 2017, and mostly because just about everybody was making predictions for the first few games, not the first couple. We’re two weeks into the three game suspension being served by quarterback Jameis Winston, and back-up Ryan Fitzpatrick has been playing like a man possessed. He isn’t alone though as the whole team seems to be...

Is it Fitzmagic or the Bucs offensive system?

Is it Fitzmagic or the Bucs offensive system?

Another week of Fitzpatrick dominance leads to more quarterback debate. When the schedule was released, people freaked out. When it was known quarterback Jameis Winston would miss the first three games, people freaked out some more. When journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick was not going to be replaced by a guy like Teddy Bridgewater, people freaked out. Here we are now two games into the season and people want Fitzpatrick to remain the starter for a very long time. The 35-year-old quarterback has been lighting up the statsheet. In the first two games of the season, he has thrown eight touchdowns to...

Report: Bucs will ride hot hand at QB and Winston’s fine with it

Despite returning from suspension, both Winston and the team want the best option at quarterback. The debate of whether or not the Buccaneers will keep franchise quarterback Jameis Winston benched was stirred up this past week after Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Week 1 performance against the New Orleans Saints. Keeping Winston benched on a short week when he returns from suspension Week 4 was possible. Now it seems to be reality, but with games to follow.
