And they think Jameis isn’t the answer at QB, do they draft one in the later rounds? Personally, Winston is at his ceiling as far as his decision making and accuracy issues. This will be an interesting off season.00No votes yet.Please wait...

IMO, Winston is not going anywhere anytime soon. No matter who is calling the shots.
They will have another couple seasons to evaluate him and look for progress. Then assuming they pick up the 5th year option, they could even tag him another season or two after that.
So no matter who is in charge, there is plenty of time to decide if he is a legit franchise QB or a journeyman guy.
He will be in the league for a very long time, there are just not enough great QB’s out there. So they need to try to get him to take the next step, rather than throw him on the scrap heap and start over.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 12:17 pm #1046592BucsBayParticipant

In the OP’s scenario: “they think Jameis isn’t the answer at QB”, then why would they take this job unless they have the green light from ownership to sign a FA QB or draft whomever they want, whatever round they want?00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 1:57 pm #1046625freddyParticipant

Considering Gru’s history, I could see it.
He could bring in a guy like Cousins and give him an arsenal that includes Evans, DJax, Godwin, Brate, Howard, Hump. Hell, if Cousins were here this year, there’s a good chance that DJax is in the Top-5 in yards and TD’s.
Now, I doubt this is how it all plays out, but I could see that scenario happening.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 2:31 pm #1046643VirgilCaineParticipant
Maybe he brings Cousins and even Jay here? Hmmmm
That would be fascinating because the Glazers fired him, at least in part, for that kind of band-aid, year-to-year approach (eg no franchise QB) but then again he came here and added parts to push the team over the top in 2002 so maybe they see this as a similar situation.

You can bet your house the Glazers would not hire a coach who wanted to get rid of Winston.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 3:23 pm #1046656AnonymousInactive

If that is true, then the prospective new HC would have no problem tying his own career to a QB currently under an NFL investigation. IMO, that eliminates all but the desperate to be HC anywhere, anytime, any situation.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 4:32 pm #1046661TCB2W!Participant
I don’t get how you think that DJax would be a top 5 with Cousins as QB. I mean he PLAYED with Cousins at QB for 3 years and never hit the top 10 much less 5. He averaged 67.5 yards per game with Cousins. Evans being top 5 with Cousins here, sure. Because they will always be double teaming DJax since Cousins like going deep. But not DJax.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 4:48 pm #1046663GoldsonAgesParticipant
“If Cousins is here this year there’s a good chance Djax is top 5 in yards and TD’s”
Donk, Djax was in Washington with Cousins the last 3 years and never reached 1,200 yards, or got more than 6 TD in one season.
What makes you think Cousins and Djax would suddenly start clicking now after having 3 mediocre years together in Washington?00No votes yet.Please wait...
(Justin) Evans will be far superior to (Budda) Baker in the pros.
Dan Skipper Sucks! (lost bet)

I don’t think the Bucs will move on from Winston for football reasons. He’s still young and has plenty of time to improve.
I think if they move on from Winston, it’ll be for character reasons. For instance, if he gets suspended for this Arizona incident, I’d hope they would at least look at Cousins.
As a fan of both the Bucs and Noles, it’s hard for me to understand how this current investigation of Winston will take months if it’s as clear cut as Winston says it is. Thus, I’m reluctantly taking a wait and see approach to the whole situation. I think the outcome will greatly impact the coaching and quarterback situation of the team next year.00No votes yet.Please wait...Dec. 8, 2017 at 6:54 pm #1046676inspectoParticipant
