LASIK surgery for Jameis Winston
Quarterback Jameis Winston underwent LASIK surgery to repair his vision. He was previously nearsighted, and it was “always a lingering question” was it impacting Winston’s performance. As reported it’s uncertain whether the surgery was requested by the Buccaneers?
“Jameis did not want to count out any options that he had that could possibly help him with the game he loves so much,” said Denise White, Winston’s spokesperson. “He doesn't’t want to miss out on any opportunity that presents itself. This is the game he loves and he wants to be the best at it and if there are any options that can improve his game he is willing to do it.”
While Winston set career-highs in passing yards (5,109) and touchdowns (33) in 2019, he also set a career-high (and led the NFL) with 30 interceptions, with #30 capping his season. Its still baffling why the former top-overall pick waited until he hit free agency to correct his vision.
CONGRATULATIONS - Keith Kunzig 'Big Nasty'
You've likely seen Kunzig in full-face paint and a larger than life getup, including a Super Bowl trophy belt, walking around Raymond James Stadium or in the tailgate lots at any given Bucs home game. He not only puts on the persona in support of the Buccaneers, but also uses his notoriety for good around the community. He created the national "Drugs Are Nasty" program and hosts a "Nasty for a Day" tailgate experience at each home game as a means of raising money in the fight against drug abuse..
"I can't explain the joy I get from being able to use the 'Big Nasty' persona as a platform to do good in our community," said Kunzig.
BuccaneersFan.com has always known that Keith was one of the best super-fans, not just in Tampa Bay, but in the entire NFL. Now, he's getting the national recognition he deserves.
Kunzig, "Big Nasty," will be named into the Ford "Hall of Fans," as one of the NFL's best at cheering on his team:!

Best Quote of the 2019 Season
“The glass is always full. It might be half-full with water, it’s still full with air.”
— Jameis Winston... following a 40-34 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 5. Winston would strike his own kind of balance this season by becoming the first QB to have 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in the same season.“When you’ve got something to prove, there’s nothing greater than a challenge.”

Buccaneers Honor Six Military Families
5th General H Norman Schwarzkopf Military Family Awards
Given by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in conjunction with the Central Florida USO, the General H Norman Schwarzkopf Military Family of the Year award is named after the late General Schwarzkopf and his family.
“You can’t help someone get up a hill without getting closer to the top yourself.”
It is something the General was famous for saying as a way of reiterating that the strength, commitment and resiliency that members of the military display day in and day out comes from the support and encouragement of those around them a.k.a. their families.
Each year, a family from each branch of the military: Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard/Reserves is chosen as a family who has best demonstrated the values of integrity, courage, commitment and service before self, while sharing in the sacrifices of service to our country..

Goodbye 2019 Season!
The 2019 season was the Buccaneers' 44th in the National Football League, their 22nd playing their home games at Raymond James Stadium and their first under head coach Bruce Arians. Despite improving on their 5–11 record from 2018 with a Week 14 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, the Bucs missed the playoffs for the twelfth consecutive season which meant the Buccaneers are one of two teams to not qualify for the postseason in the 2010s decade with the other team being the Cleveland Browns.
This season, QB Jameis Winston became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw at least 30 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions in a season.
2020 Should Be Another Shaq Attack!
The Buccaneers took a giant leap forward on the defensive side of the ball. For the first time EVER, the league's leading sack artist is also a Buccaneer. Outside linebacker Shaq "ATTACK" Barrett finished the season with 19.5 sacks, surpassing Hall of Famer Warren Sapp's franchise record in the process. The defense as a whole pressured the quarterback a lot, finishing with the second-most quarterback hits of any team with 116. Their 47 sacks ended up tied for the seventh-most of any team in the NFL and get this – the second-most of any Buccaneer defense ever. They also finished with a top rank against the run, allowing just 73.8 yards on the ground per game, an average of just 3.26 yards per rush – both a league best.
