I still think Lee Roy Selmon was the best.   But Brooks would be a strong #2.

1- Brooks
1a - Selmon

I think Brooks gets the nod because of the team's success as well as his games started streak.

. 01% Luke McCown, QB (05-present)

Who the hell voted for McCown?  It had to be somebody on this board.

1) Selmon

Personal Favorite is James Wilder.

Where is Jimmie Giles, best TE ever to play for the Bucs.

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

Sapp was the motor that made this thing run. He brought attitude, accountability and a face to our team.

Thats all great and all but....image doesnt necessarily mean production. I love Sapp, dont get me wrong but he left the team and retired as  Super Bowl Rival Raider. I think he could of stayed but that is not the case. I have to give it up to Players who have been life long bucs. Personally my favorite Buccaneer was Alstott. That man was like Favre was to Green Bay for Tampa Bay. But you got to give it up to Derrick Brooks as being one of our Greatest Players in Bucs History. We will never have a Linebacker like him for ages.

LeRoy Selmon....

Ok lock the thread now.  Nothing more need be said... ;)

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

Sapp, without question.

Then he got caught with "vegetable matter" in his ashtray. Accountability? That's hardly being the face of the franchise.

I detect a few contradictions. You talk about image.... then mention Alstott.

You want the greatest Buc to be life long, then compare Alstott to Favre, who last time i checked is a Jet.

IMO, there will be another Brooks before we find another Sapp. Guess we'll have to revisit this down the road.

Personally, that doesn't bother me. All I care about is what I see between the white lines on Sundays. How long ago was that anyway?

Sapp is the man who I personally view as lifting this franchise out of the toilet bowl.  His attitude, and utter domination are what drove this team to success.  Who cares about him smoking pot?  I'd be willing to be a HUUUUUUGE % of the league is on some kind of drug, wether it be illicit or performance enhancing.  Get real, thats the world we live in.  Sapp is a once in a lifetime player.

"there are no medals here for who can stay at the office the longest," said Jagodzinski. "I'm not into that. The guys that brag about working till 2 in the morning, in my opinion, they're just not smart enough. "
