  1. Trevor, These were your words on Winston’s practice yesterday – “Winston’s start to practice was not great, in fact, it was bad – no use sugarcoating it.”.

    Today Rick Stroud said via Twitter:
    @NFLSTROUD
    Jameis Winston was very sharp today.

    Why no words for Winston today????

  2. I remember earlier in this years season, Ferrari’s Maurizio Arrivabene was signaling like the way a D leader signals to fans to quiet down so they can hear. Ferrari’s Maurizio Arrivabene is signaling to his team to calm down and not brag about beating team Mercedes. He means to say, hey, it took a lot to beat these guys, and they’re still potent. They deserve to be respected.

    – These Bucs players and dancing and talking to much in practice . . . against themselve and now against another team. It takes very little for things to change in this league.

    • that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have fun; having fun gives them energy; just don’t direct it at the other team.

  3. Based on what I just read, the teams were a lot more evenly matched than suggested by Bucs fans/media.

  5. I have no clue what you are talking about with earlier in this season between Mercedes and Ferrari, but I can only assume it is some kind of racing?? I think it is hard to compare a violent team sport like football with a sport that has no physical contact. I know they tap each other and stuff, but it’s not the same. Football is very physical and oozes adrenaline, the trash talking is OK as long as they don’t go overboard with it, and it sounds like they didn’t. It is one of the first joint practices that didn’t end up in a fight! The Bucs better be ready for tomorrow though, I’m sure the Titans will be very fired up after today.

  6. It’s great to see the Bucs are taking this preseason so seriously. With a very difficult season ahead of them, they’re gonna need to be at a whole ‘nother level from last year. I’m not trying to be optimistic, no matter how loud the hype is, but it’s nice to see our WR’s looking so fast and breaking ankles.
