Cover 3 is a weekly feature column written by PewterReport.com’s Tampa Bay Bucs beat writer Trevor Sikkema published every Tuesday. The column, as its name suggests, comes in three phases: a statistical observation, an in-depth film breakdown, and a “this or that” segment where the writer asks the reader to chose between two options.
Sikkema’s Stat of the Week
Hello, friends. Did you miss me? Because I sure missed all of you.
I am very thankful to have the opportunity to once again write for PewterReport.com – a platform that I very much enjoy writing for, with people I enjoy working with, and readers and listeners that I enjoy getting to know and interact with each week. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for the Buccaneers – good or bad, they’re never boring – and I can’t wait to cover it all.
With that said, let’s get started.
With all the fresh new faces around the building, the one that matters the most is now one of the most familiar. Quarterback Jameis Winston is entering the fifth and final year of his rookie contract, and even now still on that contract, it is fair to say that he is no longer “just a young quarterback.” Yes, Winston is only 25 years old, but the up-and-coming, never-before-seen, could-be franchise quarterback from Florida State is officially entering put-up or shut-up time in Tampa Bay.
