    Congrats, Kim and Mark! Well deserved.

    Fantastic Fab Five as always, Scott. I’m even more excited to see what Bell can do when healthy. I think he may eventually become that fifth starter from the epic 2015 draft.

  2. 2


    We need Bell to step up this coming season playing the slot. Speed kills.

    Dear Mr Tevin Westbrook, We place a huge emphasis on blocking for our TE’s, don’t spend to much time at the jugs machine, just block and you will have a 4 yr career in Tampa and a lot of fans will love you including PR. If you can catch more than 200 yds in one season you take Stockers Job just some advice to take with you, your welcome

    Scott, good report. I don’t do Twitter or Facebook so I’ll just go more to the Bucs.com site for more information. I guess there’s not much need to renew in the future.

    1. 4.1


      renew to what? PR has been a free site for some time now..

    Very informative, Scott… If Bell eventually does pan out, I wonder where that draft class would rank in the history of great draft classes since the merger? I’m happy to the PR organization continue to grow. I spent years on the TBT site and didn’t realize how much more in-depth that you guys get… Kudos to PR! I’ll miss the instant interaction on your live Friday feed though.

    I do appreciate the back behind the scenes and what the bucs are doing. I think 2016 thru the draft and Free Agency will be very big this year espivally all these new coaches on board and the salary cap money. I would love to get Michael Benneth back from Seattle. the previous coaching staff did a very bad sistutation. I believe Michael Benneth could really be another defensive linemen that was here before. If Michael benneth does come to Tampa. Then the bucs could trade down for more picks. Espically trading with LA Rams. Switching picks in no#1 and picking up a 2nd rd and future picks.

    Thanks Scott.
    Bell…look, I’m pulling for the kid like I pull for all Bucs, but there’s a reason several receiver-needy teams (including the hoodied-one) passed this guy over 4 times each. Let’s keep our expectations in check and hope for the best.

    On Westbrook…okay, I understand we can’t always just read about LvD and Jameis, and I appreciate the looks at the off-the-radar guys, but do we really think this guy is going to see meaningful snaps outside of 1-Buc Place.

    Okay – now I sound like a downer and I promised @drdneast that I would be more positive, so congrats to Kim and Mark!…and I’ll leave you with this tidbit…I think VJax still has a chance to lead our team in receiving in 2016…he’s not done yet! Go Bucs!

    If Westbrook went to Florida as a D end, it might’ve been good to let him compete there too. Not like we have all pro D ends. I noticed Bell all season on the sideline next to Dirk. Looked like he was more involved then Lovie. Glad to hear the players are looking to prove something this year.

    Good article on the receiving corps this week SR. I hope Kenny Bell is able to stay healthy and show what he learned last year. Same thing for Murphy on staying healthy. Bucs could use some more explosive plays that end in a TD. Also, thank you for including a link to Kenny Bell’s college highlight reel. I know we can find that Youtube video on our own, but appreciate the quick and easy link!

    Loved to hear what Winston and Glennon had him do on reporting. Not only is it excellent for the team and for Bell’s game learning, but the way Bell ran with it suggests he has a future in any industry he chooses. Preparing coherent multi-page reports is a life skill you need to have. Rooting for you, kid.

    I hope those promotions came with a raise in pay because if they didn’t they are pretty meaningless. But that’s how business is done in Florida.
    Anyway, great Fab 5 as always. Enjoyed the up to dates on the numerous players.
    Depending how the knee injury affects Murphy, I really do think the Bucs are set at WR next year.
    It’s great Fatinikun did all that weight work to look good at the beach, but I sure hope he did some work on the legs, too.
    Nothing more important for a DL to have great leg strength and drive power.
    Surferdude, it might interest you to know my friend used to say his golden retriever was more involved in the game than Lovie.
    Jogruden awakes and throws out his usual barb at Stocker. As predictable and unoriginal as the sun setting in the west.

    1. 11.1


      Stocker 9 catches for 61 yds for the season, lol

  12. 12


    Too bad Kim’s and Mark’s hard work, dedication and the resulting increase in pay, may put them in a higher tax bracket to, in effect, punish them. Anyway, the PR staff does a great job and I for one, appreciate the long hours you all put in to produce this site.

    I must say, that when watching practices at Training Camp last year, I noticed Kenny Bell seemed to be struggling. I thought he was pressing too much and needed to relax. Looking forward to watching him develop. Good info on “Afro Thunder” and Tevin Westbrook. Great attitudes.

  13. 13


    Another great Fab 5 as usual. I’m also cautiously optimistic about Bell. Although he didn’t show much on the field, he definitely showed something off the field. Every game he was right there next to Dirk and Jameis, soaking up all the info he could. That’s always a good sign.

    Now for the negative…I’m hoping this article is wrong. Just pay the man! http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000635898/article/report-doug-martin-hopes-to-hit-jackpot-as-free-agent

  14. 14


    Good Fab 5. Don’t know about Bell. Speed without hands and ability to stay healthy means nothing. Seems like he works hard will see if it pays off. Not too excited about Bell. He needs to bulk up at least 10 lands or so IMO. Westbrook doesn’t seem too exciting either. Another blocking TE doesn’t seem like a big need right now.

    Congratulations to Kim and Mark! You and Scott ARE Pewter Report and we appreciate it very much. Loved the Fab 5! Reading about players like Bell and Westbrook is what PR is all about. Same goes for hearing about Mike Biehl. Maybe the Buccaneers CAN go all defense in the draft although another offensive lineman or two would be nice. Great work, keeps the offseason bearable and continues to give me hope for the future…..starting in 2016!

    Plopes808, I wouldn’t put to much stock in that story. You didn’t hear Stroud quoting Martin directly but it appeared it was his opinion based on perhaps something Martin’s agent told him.
    Or perhaps it was just his “gut” feeling.
    Whatever the case, I think Martin would be sought after, but a lot of teams aren’t going to pony up Demarcus Murray money after what happened with him last year.
    Besides, few teams feel a RB is the key essential ingredient to great offense anymore.
    That is one reason so few are taken in the first round anymore.
    If Martin can live with around 6.5 mill he will probably be in Tampa next year.
    But if I see the Bucs getting cheap with him it will further reinforce my feelings of ending my season ticket purchase for the first time in 35 years.

      Where’s Culverhouse when you need him

    2. 16.2


      I hope you’re right, we need to keep moving forward and losing Doug would be a big step backward

  17. 17


    Last I heard his widow Joy Culverhouse wanted to dig him up and shoot him for getting down to business with newscaster David Brinkley’s wife.

  18. 18


    Scott – Thank you for this “much needed” mid-February article. Nothing better than a plate of hope and excitement served to we hungry fans waiting at the new season’s table. Go Bucs!

  19. 19


    The Bucs definitely need a better slot receiver…someone who can take it to the house. Don’t know if Bell is the answer. He definitely has the speed, but the slot receiver needs quickness (there’s a difference), and must be able to take the hits over the middle. His frame isn’t similar to the more stocky stature of Welker or Edelman.

    At tight end, ASJ needs to stay on the field this year and contribute for gosh sake!
