Sports Illustrated made their way to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp this past week and just put up their postcard from Bucs camp. I always find it interesting to see what the national media is saying about the Bucs, most of the coverage we do here at TPP and that we link to at other Bucs site is done by local media with a much better grasp on the dynamics and nuances of the team.
SI paints with broad national strokes which can be frustrating, but can also be fairly interesting because it gives you insight into what fans of other teams may think of the Bucs. For most fans, the national media’s take on another team is their only opinion, so it’s always nice to see what consensus is. You’ll probably like the consensus on the Bucs from SI. Chris Harry is very high on Josh Freeman, the Bucs young nucleus and the direction of this team. You’ll have to roll your eyes at the obligatory Talib-bashing, but it seems as though SI has its eyes on the Bucs.
