    Great Read as allows Scott. So the big question we will find out tonight is, Is Godwin really that good or are our DBs really that average. I cant wait for tonight.

    I don’t watch College Football too much. Just follow my team and know about big names on the other top teams. I didn’t even know who Chris Godwin was until Pewter Report did a feature on him before we even drafted him. Hopefully he turns into everything we hope he can be and more, and aslo stays in Pewter and Red.

    Griffin has always looked good in practice but for some reason he breaks down in game situations. If he plays in games like how he practices then I think he has #2 spot locked down.

    Tonight I am eager to see the LB, TE, WR, DL DB, KR/PR, and Kicker battles play out.

    Also looking forward to seeing the progress that McNichols and Barber have made. And also to see if Sims has recovered and can be a weapon as a gadget play like he was two seasons ago. This is because, Koetter talks highly of Sims as an explosive player so I am rooting for him to return to form.

    I will also be looking at Winston to see what progress he has made as a quick, three step rhythm passer and where he needs room for improvement (probably screen game).

    And finally a look at the OL in live game situations against a Bengals defensive line that is quality and deep. Pass pro for this line is going to be just as vital as the push at the LOS.

    We know that Jameis is a risk taker and does not give up when a play breaks down. If Godwin can improvise and earn the qb’s trust, that should be an awesome thing for this offense. Sounds like they are cut from the same cloth!

    All you have to do is watch the Rose Bowl highlights from last year to see that Godwin is an outstanding receiver. First round draft pick Adoree Jackson doesn’t ever want to see Godwin across from him on the line of scrimmage again.

    Godwin runs great routes, has great hands, and is great coming down with the contested pass. And he’s an excellent downfield blocker too.

    Chris Godwin will be a star for the Bucs. I see Pro Bowls in his future.

    It’s nice to see so much new talent on the team this year. At the same time, every season we judge people on training camp performance … and then the pre-season games start to tell the real tale. Training camp stars are nice, game stars are necessary. Not saying anything negative about anybody, but let’s see what the games tell us before we get too excited.

    Dot has to be the most selfless person on the team. Just a good down to earth guy, even considering the years where his agent messed up his contract and Tampa capitalized on that. I hope Tampa keeps him in an administrative role once his playing days are over.

    Scott, thanks for a great read on the day of the first preseason! Thank you for the insight on Ryan Russell. Looking forward to seeing what he can do.
    It wouldn’t surprise me if Ryan Fitzpatrick stain a hamstring and was put on the ir. He can still serve as Jameis’ veteran presence without using up a precious roster spot.
    go Bucs!

    Westbrook was drafted 4.03, not before Godwin.
