Regular editorials on the Bucs and Hard Knocks will come on this site next week but a few early thoughts from having watched Episode 2 with my wife. Gerald McCoy is a true team leader but does it in a different way to Jameis. I have Michael Husted’s number if the Bucs are still that desperate for a kicker. Riley Bullough is your typical Hard Knocks unknown rookie feature who will never be heard from again after he is cut in two weeks time.
ON THIS DAYOne of my favourite pre-season stories from the 1989 win over the Falcons. Undrafted rookie DB Kermit Kendrick returned a pick late in the 27-0 win for a touchdown and was shortly after released, never to play again. Some 20+ years later, a British guy contacts him at his legal practice in Alabama offering him the clip of the play for free. Kermit was truly stunned to see his greatest football moment again and promised to bore his friends, family and colleagues to death showing them the play from the Bucs’ exhibition season. This is what BUCPOWER is all about - bringing good memories of the franchise to fans and former players around the world.
