Bucs Invite Fans to "Climb Aboard!" in 2011 |
The official theme of the 2011 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: "Climb Aboard". It seems the Bucs are inviting everyone to jump on the bandwagon. They were probably inspired by the Lightning's "All-In" campaign in taking up this motto. 

Talib's case rolls on with no resolution or trial date | & St. Petersburg Times
It seems Aqib Talib's attorney is still working on a deal. Striking such a deal would likely keep Talib out of prison, although Talib could still be suspended by the NFL. 

Looking at NFC South assistants on rise - NFC South Blog - ESPN
Pat Yasinskas names Greg Olson as an up-and-coming coach. I can't disagree with that, as Olson created a very productive offense with limited tools in his first full year as coordinator. 

Not All-In Yet |
The Bucs' website offers some fantasy advice on Bucs players. | Could Bucs Defensive Line Surpass Lions’? - Tampa Bay Bucs Football
Seems Peter King thinks they can, but that the Lions line is at another level right now. I'd agree with them in principle, as the Lions' line has produced much more. But I must also note that Nick Fairley's impact won't be great early on. He was incredibly raw in college, and lacked any semblance of technique or hand use. 

2010 Pass Blocking Efficiency: Tight Ends |
John Gilmore was the 7th best pass-blocking TE in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Not that it matters much, the Bucs don't keep in tight ends to block except on very rare occasions and play action, where they're often asked to release quickly. 

Bucs Interested In Haynesworth - NFL - Yahoo! Sports - H/t JoeBucsFan
In this big ol' piece, Michael Silver drops the note that the Bucs could be in the market for Albert Haynesworth. I don't see that happening, at all. The Bucs have adopted a build-through-the-draft mentality, they've already loaded up on talented young defensive tackles and Haynesworth hasn't exactly become an intriguing player these past two seasons. Trying to attract Haynesworth would go against everything the Bucs seem to stand for. | Barrett Ruud And Brian Urlacher - Tampa Bay Bucs Football
JoeBucsFan transcribes some Rich Gannon thoughts on Barrett Ruud. Gannon seems to think Ruud is extremely valuable mostly because he makes all the calls. So he does, but other people can learn to do so as well. 

[Video]Answer Man, 6/16/11 |
In this video, the Bucs answer some questions regarding fumbles on Extra Points, the player numbers of rookies (no numbers have been decided on yet, except for Clayborn's #94) and late scores by the Bucs. The latest score ever turns out to be Matt Bryant's record-breaking 62-yard field goal with seconds remaining in overtime.
