  • Are the Saints playoffs contenders next season? A very interesting take on the post-Brees Saints from the Bucs Nation Podcast. Of course, Bucs fans are quite well acquainted with Jameis Winston, who figures to be the Saints’ starting quarterback in the 2021-22 NFL season. And let’s just say: they are not brimming with confidence in No. 2.

  • Bucs duo of linebackers makes ESPN’s top-10 poll. While everyone is praising Tom Brady for turning around the Bucs’ fortunes last season, it is undeniable that Tampa Bay’s defense is really what propelled the Bucs to their wins in the playoffs and in the Super Bowl in February. Two of the leaders on that defense are Devin White and Lavonte David. And the NFC South and the NFL will have to content with those two for many years to come.
