All Excuses aside, Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be a roller coaster ride in 2015

The Bucs have shown us so far in the 2015 preseason that the team will give us excitement this season; but in the excitement will be losses as well as wins.

Jameis Winston featured on a Publix banner

To know Jameis Winston is to know Publix crab legs. You know the story. A year and a half ago, while still with Florida State, the quarterback walked into a Publix and left with crab legs in his hands — without paying. The story blew up, and the crab leg memes have continued ever since. Once Winston became a Buccaneer, though, Publix was willing to wipe the slate clean, according...
