All the NFL teams are in Training Camp. Most are practicing full pads & contact. The begining of the Preseason is this Sunday. Packers VS Colts in the Hall Of Fame game. The regular season is not too far off after that. Excitement so thick :yay:

I've been disappointed by good looking Bucs teams in training camp before.  Hoping for the best.  Dirk is a breath of fresh air.  We've never had a coach that tells it like it is while simultaneously not throwing the players under the bus.  Rutgers guy hated everyone, lovie just said we are going to work on it, rah loved everyone, Jon would say everyone was great and then not play them and talk about them behind their back.  Love the Dirk approach.

You guys are being too tough on the field crew
Because 11 months and 364 days is not enough time to purchase the correct paint for your ANNUAL NFL game :drool:

I wholleheartedly agree about you observation. I also think it was smart of  Dirk bringing on M. Smith. His defense looks like they are going to have a bunch of different looks besides the obvious one of being a new Bucs defensive scheme. I bet we will not see this defense go into zone coverge when they have the opposing offense in a 3rd & 21 situation. That is what Lovies defense did against the Saints last year and that was when I had no more respect for his defense or him as a coach!!!
Go Bucs :madra:

I know it's only one half of the first pre-season game but Dak Prescott looked great!!  10-12 for 139 yards and two TDs.  And the two incompletions were drops.

Oh.  And no picks.
