Yup, give me a top 5 pick and bring back Gruden.


Gruden may have other offers from the Giants and University of Tennessee. Tampa is a very unstable place to work and he may not want to return unless they make him an offer he can't refuse. $$$$$$$$$$$$$!



Disagree man, Gruden still lives and works in Tampa. He has made up with the Glazers. He wants to coach the Bucs again. He won't be coaching in college. He's been turning down jobs for a reason, he wants to return. He loves Winston and wants to work with him.

That is encouraging, I want stability and hopefully with the next hire we will finally get some.

Next three games against teams battling for playoff positioning. The only thing to look forward to is the draft and picking 5th is a real possibility.

Falcons beat the Bucs on MNF 24-21, Murray missed a game tying 54 yd FG as time expired, would have sent the game to OT had he mad it. Winston looked better than he has probably all season. 27-35 299 yds 3 TDs

At 4-10 with games against the Panthers and Saints, the Bucs likely finish 4-12 and get the 5th or 6th pick.

Bucs could not hold the Panthers off, team is now 4-11. I would not be against keeping the coach on as the OC if he would accept the position.

Very doubtful. We are much closer to bringing back Jon Gruden, he'll bring in his own staff.

Gruden chose not to reunite with the Glazers. Who knows how much money they had on the table but it was not enough to return Tampa.

Winston has a lot of growing up to do by next season. I know the losing got to him but he let it revel some disturbing characteristics his critics believed about him.

Hopefully their moral victory on Sunday did not cost them the defensive player they may have had an eye on in the draft. Their focus for the draft should focus 100% on the defensive side of the ball.

If the defensive side of the ball is not upgraded and the coach game management does not improve we will be looking at another top 10 pick in 2019.

Return to Tampa Bay Buccaneers
