    Bucs have made me proud dumped revis over priced ass and git Verner at a cheaper price mccown should be decent for us

    • Rishi Pochiraju

      I’m still perplexed as to why the Bucs cut Revis. He wasn’t really affecting the salary cap at all, and he proved last year that he’s still good, although not what he was pre-injury. Verner and Revis on the same team would’ve been insane.

      As for McCown, I like the signing, but I would have liked to see some competition between him and Glennon. I thought Glennon actually played pretty well last year on a bad team. He was a bright spot IMO and he deserves a chance…maybe not a starter right away — if he loses a QB competition to McCown, so be it — but I thought he at least deserved a shot via QB competition during training camp and in the preseason. But Lovie just came out and said that McCown is the starter. Not a fan of it, but I like the McCown signing. I actually had him rated higher on a FA board than Vick, unlike most people.

      • Derrick Freeman

        The only way we were able to sign mccown was by telling him he would be starter I personally think he will get beat out in preseason but I originally thought we would get Vick but considering he’s only played 16 games 1 season in 11 years I’m glad we passed. Revis and Verner would have been great but the dude demands 2 much money for someone that I watched get destroyed by desean jackson and Ted ginn I hope johnthan banks learned as much as he could from revis but we will kick ass without revis

      • Tom Weissmann

        Well without Revis’ contract, the Bucs were able to sign Verner and McCown. Now I realize they signed Verner before Revis was released but they also needed the space for rookie signings (the number seven overall pick is still pretty pricey at around $19 million for a contract). It’s estimated that with a full seven picks for each round, a team will need at least $11 million in cap space.

        For McCown, I’m glad they made him the starter mainly for the fact that he can bridge the gap between now and when/If Glennon becomes the starter. It didn’t turn out too bad for Rodgers. I’d prefer to draft a QB and trade Glennon for a mid to late round pick and develop (Murray, McCarron or anyone drafted after the second round would need to be) the new one while McCown is the starter. Why pay a new QB $10 million to have him sit on the bench? McCown can move the sticks consistently, regardless of injuries or talent surrounding him and he knows how to win. Overall, it’s better him starting than Glennon where if he did, Tampa will most likely be having a high first rounder again to draft his replacement. Starting McCown is by far the better option.

    • Paul Newbold

      Thanks for Sheldon Richardson and the 4 th round pick. Sorry MEvis didn’t work out for you guys! Let the Pats deal with that money hungry, egomaniac! You guys are better off without him! He brings headaches, and disruptions to the locker room everywhere he goes!

      • Derrick Freeman

        Lmao loved the mevis reference hilarious to quote and egotistical pick in Richard sherman revis is all “hype” and I’m glad he’s gone dudes worth 86 million at 28 years old and wouldn’t take a pay cut we got 2 players for the price he assumes he’s worth

  • gary adkins

    Unfortunately the Raiders with all the CAP space whiffed again, damn Reggie is freakin 99 cent store moron. He and his biatch DA are fired after this year. Watch 99 cent shrek whiff in the draft.

  • Robert Fouquet

    saints need to find a way to sign Cromartie

    • Paul Newbold

      Trust me…the Saints don’t need Comartie…sadly his injuries have left him half the corner he used to be. Find value elsewhere…Comartie is done :(
