TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – News Channel 8, the official station of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is proud to continue its Monday tradition of sitting down with the head coach to discuss the previous day’s game. This week, ‘Koetter’s Korner’ kicks off, six days before the Bucs open the season against the Atlanta Falcons.
Dan Lucas joined head coach, Dirk Koetter, after Monday’s practice to get his thoughts on the team’s preparation leading up to opening day as well as the value of beating a division opponent on the road. The Bucs pass rush, which led the NFL in quarterback sacks during the preseason, will get tested against a revamped Falcons offensive line. Can the defense get off to a dominating start? And how much better is quarterback, Jameis Winston, one year after a nightmare opening day loss to the Tennessee Titans? Winston was voted as one of the team captains on Monday and has placed higher expectations on himself than his rookie season.
‘Koetter’s Korner’ airs each Monday during sports on News Channel 8 at 6. A full version will appear each Monday on WFLA.com.
