    Very good picks, all of them, Scott.

  2. 2


    Have to agree with all your picks. Enjoyed seeing who the choices were earlier also.
    In 2009 Tanard Jackson won the MVP, as I read that I just shook my head and wondered where he is now. What a bummer that guy turned out to be. All for smoking wacky tabacky ( not an issue for me).

    Now I am onboard with Kwon being runner up, but, there is always a but.
    Anger should get a co-MVP with him. His season was that good. I think he won 3 games for us as a PUNTER. Great signing for the BUCS.
    But as I really look at it Kwon might actually be the real MVP. Fantastic season for him, and he is still just a kid.
    Winston was equally great. Fantastic season, for him, and he’s still just a kid.
    Evans was doubled teamed all year and posted insane numbers. Fantastic season for him, and he still just a kid.
    Noah Spence shone very bright. Fantastic season for him, and he’s still just a kid.
    I hope when these player I just mentioned read this they don’t take offense to being called “kid”. I state they are kids that have potential for greatness.

    Man oh man, things are definitely looking good.

      Hey Chevette- I totally agree with you on Anger and Kwon. GREAT years by both of those guys. You are correct, the future is VERY bright for us.

    Hey Scott- I can get on board with ALL of these. you rightly point out that JW increased his completion percentage and his off the charts leadership skills. Here is where I struggle. by my count, JW had 24 total turnovers, that’s 1.5 TO’s per game. I don’t think we will be a consistent playoff team until he quits turning it over at such a high rate. Given that i think everyone would acknowledge the importance of TO ratio, in my mind JW had a VERY GOOD, not MVP type of year. Just my opinion. Thank you for a great article.

    Yes our future is VERY bright! Licht has built a very promising stable of players in his few years here. This off season, I’m sure he will address our need for a WR2 and bolster out Oline. Imagine what Jameis and co will do with that!

    Defensively, Kwon is the clear leader with VH3 and Spence coming on strong and showing improvement. Now that Smitty’s locked in for a few years, we can focus on finding players to build up the defense.

    Great things are coming for sure!

  5. 6


    Mike Evans is a top 3 to 5 wide out in the nfl but Jameis W. is not a top 10 qb so don’t understand you would put the two together . Going to a school in Florida does not automatically make you a great player…Does it?.

    1. 6.1


      Sunshine – “MVP” means most valuable player to the team, not of the league. Clearly Evans and Winston were the most valuable members of our offense, and throughout the course of the season, the offense was the better unit (though the defense improved significantly in the second half).

  6. 7


    I’m pretty sure a poll of the players would result in the same choices.

  7. 8


    Good choices for sure. The future is very bright. Something I haven’t said for a long time. We have great head coach offensive coordinator. Great defensive coordinator, and a great young QB that will improve every year.

    Spence was great playing through that shoulder injury.

    Go Bucs 2017!!!!’

    Buc 1976

    I whole heartedly agree with your picks.
    One note after watching playoff games were how many FG’s were made from 50 or more yards out!
    I REALLY hope we get that part of special teams worked out, and I hope RA is the answer. Maybe next year he is special teams MVP. Go Bucs

  9. 10


    Seems we here on PW pretty much agreed with Scott’s MVP and defensive MVP.

    For a different awards opinion on the defensive side of the ball, from the Professional Football Writers of America, today they named Vernon Hargreaves III to the All Rookie Team. VHIII is the first Bucs All Rookie since 2012 (Mark Barron) and the first CB since 1996 (Donnie Abraham).

    VHIII may not have had huge splash play stats (INTs and PD), in part because he started slow on the learning curve, and he initially started on the slot before later on moving outside … but he was so effective alongside Brent Grimes (who led the league in PD with 24) by the middle of the season that most quarterbacks didn’t throw the ball his way at all. VHIII was third on the team in tackles at 68, finishing just ahead of Lavonte David and well above Brent Grimes, plus he helped his teammates out like Keith Tandy when they made their INTs.

      There is another kid I forgot.
      GO BUCS
