Pewter and Read: Tampa Bay Buccaneers News and Opinions from Around the Web: 8/22/13


We all know the negative news out of One Buc Place today. Let’s shed some light one some of the other news and rumors concerning the Bucs from Thursday.

  • Yahoo! contributor James LoPresti breaks down the Buccaneers’ playoff chances here. He does admit to being from Tampa, so take it for what it’s worth, but there are certainly some good points to be found.
  • Want the total opposite? Pete Prisco posted a season preview for the Buccaneers, and it’s not full of smiles and rainbows. CBS’s NFL analyst isn’t a fan of what the Buccaneers are faced with, citing a tough division and questions with pass rush as the reason for a double-digit loss season.
  • Let’s bounce back to the positive side of things, and swing over to the Bucs’ official website, who have been tracking some of the latest average draft position movement for key Bucs players in fantasy football. Some interesting things to note, so you know where to take the Bucs in your drafts.
  • Over at Bucs Nation, Sander got the chance to talk to a Dolphins’ blogger to learn what they’re looking for in the third preseason game. The Dolphins are an interesting team, and one that I am not sold on. But if you want a different perspective on them, check out the article.

That’s it for today. Join us again tomorrow for more Bucs news and opinions.
