This season might become a tale of two halves. The first and the second being separate entities which help tell the full story of the year that was for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
If so, then this weekend was a re-start of sorts. A chance to take who they were coming out of their 2-6 start and change the character of their team through the next eight games.
We here at Bucs Nation are taking the beginning of the second half this year as a chance to start anew as well. And we’re looking for your input in doing so.
Every week, we want to crown a Bucs Nation Community Player of the Week. You are said community, so the player belongs to you.
We, as a staff, will collect the nominations. You, the reader and fan will be the ones to vote and select the player. In the middle of the week, we’ll announce the winner, and share some of your thoughts on why the player earned the respect and admiration of Buccaneers fans who frequent this site.
Sound good? We think so, and hopefully, so do you. So let’s get to our first nominees of the year!
