Smith was not the head coach of the Buccaneers very long before he decided to make an impact. The Bucs quickly signed veteran quarterback Josh McCown and named him the starter. For a team that clearly is in a win-now mode, this is a risky move. McCown has been a backup most of his career and has made only 38 starts. He played well in relief of an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago last season. But there’s nothing in McCown’s track record to suggest that he can win consistently over the long haul. Coach Lovie Smith has history with McCown and is comfortable with the veteran quarterback. This was a bit of a shock considering the fact that the Bucs have a solid young signal caller in Mike Glennon. This will be a big move for the Bucs as they are putting all of their hopes on a quarterback who has made a living as a back up.

The Bucs also made changes on defense as they let verteran corner Darrelle Revis leave for the New England Patriots. The Bucs did a nice job of replacing Revis with Alterraun Verner. The Bucs got Verner at a reasonable price and he’s in the prime of his career. It is yet to be seen if he will pick up the slack, but it shows that the Bucs are making some serious changes.
The Bucs have a very bright future and there is no doubt that they will be a tough team in the future, but not now. They will have a good start to the season but will fail to match up to the tougher teams in the division as the Buccaneers settle for a third place finish in the NFC South.
