lol... Lately?

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

I think Pryor had a bit of the "Tebow" effect going on in Oakland. By that I mean he was creating divisions in the fanbase and locker room because of his popularity, but he wasn't going to start. Not his fault, but it is what it is. I think they had to move him.

As for Pryor, I think he was in a college program that had no interest in developing him into an NFL type quarterback, and then he ended his college career with a suspension for selling his own stuff and accepting "improper benefits". He ended up being taken in the supplemental draft by a garbage organization. What you have is a Cam Newton type player that went down a very different path...but he still has that potential and is only 24 years old. He couldn't have landed in a better situation. Pete Carroll is a great coach that truly wants what is best for his players and Pryor could very well end up developing there for a few years and go on to be a starter somewhere else eventually. I like the kid and I'm happy for him. Hope he takes full advantage of his new situation and fully understands what a big opportunity he now has.

No interest? Pryor came to Ohio State because we were running a pro style offense. Pryor had no interest in every being a good QB, he was a lazy guy at Ohio St and shouldve been kicked off the team before his "improper benefits".

Can't help but like the sound of Collins and how Warhop is approaching the Oline position.

I like the smoke in the banners.

We will be Carolina ready when we are Carolina ready.
