TE Kellen Winslow has emerged as the Bucs' top receiving target, but his impact goes far beyond the fact he leads the team in receptions (25), receiving yards (352), and touchdowns (five). Winslow is such a threat that opponents have started assigning their top cornerbacks to him. That opens opportunities for others to make plays, and the Bucs are taking advantage. Last week, the Packers put CB Charles Woodson on Winslow. That allowed WRs Maurice Stovall and Sammie Stroughter a chance to work against lesser corners. Winslow also has been a big aid to rookie QB Josh Freeman. Freeman says Winslow is quick to explain coverage tendencies so Freeman knows when to look his way and when to look elsewhere. Bucs officials raised a lot of eyebrows when trading two draft picks for Winslow, but he's been the team's most reliable offensive player.

Awesome... SEE??? This team CAN make some plays... we DO have some talent... its a SHAME it wasn't realized earlier.

And I'm starting to like Winslow more and more. Props to him for taking the rookie under his wing and being unselfish, telling when NOT to throw his way.

Isn't this because he's the only real threat?

I like K2 but when you have Clayton, Sammie, and K2 who do you think the best CB will be covering?

No matter how you spin it man if the defense has to use a CB to cover your TE you know he has some explosive speed

When I sit back and think about it, sometimes I wouldn't mind drafting DEZ, but only if Suh isn't on board or Berry.

Yes, K2 is drawing teams attention.  And yes, he is productive.

Obviously.

That says all you need to know about the lack of WR's in Tampa.

I thought the Winslow addition was a great one from the beginning and still believe so. The major concern I had with him was his injury history but hes barely been on the injury report so far. I also feared that he might blow up at some point this year from all the losing but thus far hes been nothing but positive, particularly towards Freeman's development. Good move by Dominik. Nice to have a player who is genuinely one of the elite at his position.

Speaking of WR... just read Boomer called our #18 Sammie 'Sergeant' Stroughter.

Pretty funny.

No, it means that the WR's are dogs that they DON'T have to use their CB's on.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The guy can be a HUGE threat IF he just shuts up and plays football.

Right now, I'd say he's doing his job.

My thoughts exactly. If Winslow can keep playing the way he is now, someone is going to be open. What a huge mismatch. Hopefully Olson is wise enough to take full advantage of this trend if it keeps up.

Even if AB doesn't play, we will get to see more of Stovall. He looked tough last game and seemed to have something going with Freeman.
