The stadium has a seating capacity of 65,890 with 195 executive suites available as well and the stadium is sometimes referred to as the “Ray Jay”. The Buccaneers are a professional American football franchise that in its 39 years has seen its fair share of ups and downs that have compiled an overall record of 241-385-1. The franchise is owned by the Glazer family the teams General Manager is Jason Licht and their head coach is Lovie Smith who signed a five year contract in January of last year to take on the role of head coach he was previously head coach of the Chicago Bears. Taking a bold step coach Smith has decided to take over defensive play-calling duties from defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier after the team finished 2-14 his first season with them. If fans were watching the preseason debut of rookie QB Jameis Winston who the coaching staff have great expectations for the coaches say they have felt that there are more positives than not because the rookie QB is not only exceptionally smart, claiming to have a photographic memory that Bucs offensive coordinator Kirk Koetter is already singing praises about he is also extremely accurate and able to see the field and work it. Let’s hope that with the signing of RT Gosder Cherilus to a two year contract the veteran player will bring some extra protection to the Buc’s rookie QB.
