The Bucs used two joint practices against the Patriots to their advantage in beating New England, 30-28, in the third preseason game a year ago. Tampa Bay will once again be practicing with New England and hoping to gain useful knowledge about an opponent in will face both in the preseason and in Week 3 of the regular season.

I hope our coaching staff gets as much out of the practices/preseason as Bill and his gang does.. Don't want to win the exhibition game only to get blown  out week 3..

I think its more than just learning about a future opponent. Undoubtedly the practices and actual game plan for the pre-season contest  will be generic in nature. But seeing a team many fell is the barometer for which other NFL franchise are measured and the chance to practice against them and just getting to go against an actual different player in individual matches-ups can be a huge learning environment for players.

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.
"Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
