Gearing up for the Season with Hard Knocks
Hard Knocks is an HBO reality sports television show that follows a different team each year as they prepare for the season ahead. 2017 is the twelve-year of the show and features your Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Covering both the football and personal lives of many players, Hard Knocks is any fans’ dream and has created a lot of hype and excitement since it kicked off on August 8th. Catch up on a few episodes before heading south and visiting us at our Treasure Island beach resort during one of the best Florida vacations ever.
A Third Record Breaking Season for our Play Caller?
Buccaneers’ fans are lucky to be cheering on Jameis Winston as our quarterback. Not without controversy coming out of college, Winston has proven himself early on in the NFL. He has become the first quarterback in history to pass for 4,000 yards in his first two seasons. 2017 could very well be his third. Each year Winston and the team have shown marked improvement, and this year we are vying for our first playoff birth since 2007!
Exciting New Additions to the Roster
The Buccaneers have had a very productive off-season, building a roster that is sure to challenge every team that comes to town. There are two players in particular that have many locals excited. The first is DeSean Jackson, an explosive free agent that has made a name for himself as both a speedy runner and deep pass threat. Additionally O.J. Howard, a rookie tight-end out of Alabama, could prove to be the final piece to the offensive puzzle that will make the Bucs serious playoff contenders.
Football season is an exciting time of year, even if you aren’t as optimistic about your team as us Buccaneer fans are about ours!
