T.J. sounds off on Bucs

Talked to ESPN analyst and former Broncos great Tom Jackson today about the stellar play of the Bucs linebackers.

It was a pretty interesting conversation. He said, among other things that he ranks Derrick Brooks among the greatest linebackers in history, mentioning him in the same breath as Jack Lambert and Lawrence Taylor. He also placed the Bucs' unit among the best four or five linebacking corps playing today. Can't disagree with the man on either count.

We also took a really cool photo of the three LBs for the cover of Sunday's sports section. Check out the story and cover shot on game day. It'll be worth a look.

Amen, Mr. Jackson.

DB is one of the greatest ever! Cato June played well last season, and is making a name for himself here! And Mr. Ruud! The guy has talent, I hope it isn't a fluke 4 weeks as starter!
Top 3 maybe in the league if Ruud is really as good as he appears to be!
