Tuesday Morning Links for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.



One of the features I want to have on the site is a fairly regular story containing links and stories for the Bucs from around the internet.  This won't be a daily feature, but will provide some quick info without you having to do any of the searching. 

New Starting Nickelback -  The competition looks to be between two players, Elbert Mack and Torrie Cox. A few new players could challenge for the spot since none of these players are familiar with the new 4-3 scheme.  Mack should be the favorite going into camp though.

Could the Bucs surprise in 09? - A quick recap of the busy offseason for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  A comparison is also made to the 2008 Atlanta Falcons with the question posed "Why can't the Bucs use a similar formula in 2009?".  My answer?  Maybe we can duplicate that success, but I'm not holding my breath.

Is Morris already on the hot seat? - A look at all 32 head coaches and their apparent positions on the so-called hot seat going into 2009.  [Ed Note:  Morris appears on the "Should Be Safe" list.  Now, unless the Glazer's either have the quickest trigger finger, which we haven't seen, or are setting him up for failure, there is NO WAY Morris and company shouldn't be on the "No Worries" list.  The only speculation I can offer is that the Glazer's picked up a cheap coach and GM to fill as stop gaps until a name they want (hello Mr. Cowher) decides they want to roam the sidelines again.]

USA Today recap of the off-season - Most of this info has been discussed, but there are a few good quotes from Chris Hovan both on the loss of leadership in the locker room and how he will be affected by the switch to Jim Bates' scheme.

That does it for Tuesday Morning's edition.  Feel free to use the comments section to let your thoughts be known to everyone in Buc Nation.
