That’s not the case for the newest members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ secondary. Their alarm clock is cornerbacks coach Kevin Ross. According to Sean Murphy-Bunting, the Bucs’ second-round draft pick out of Central Michigan, Ross has been calling him early in the morning to quiz him on the playbook. Ross has been doing the same with Jamel Dean, the Bucs’ third-round pick out of Auburn, per Jenna Laine of ESPN. Whether it’s 6AM, 6:30AM - it doesn’t matter. Ross wants these kids on top of everything at all times. It’s a smart move by Ross, who has an abundance of youth - but not much experience - at the cornerback position. Vernon Hargreaves III would be considered the veteran, but he is entering his fourth season and has played in just 10 games over the past two years due to injury.It’s going to be crucial that Murphy-Bunting and Dean have their heads on straight when it comes to the defensive playbook. Todd Bowles’ defense is very reliant on defensive backs and both players will likely play a big role in 2019. The early-morning quizzes appear to have paid off so far, as the rookie duo were able to each return an interception for a touchdown during Friday’s rookie minicamp. Ross’ intensity is very similar to that of Brenson Buckner’s - the Bucs’ defensive line coach in 2018 - and that is a good thing. Although Buckner’s line wasn’t the model of perfection last year, he was able to bring the sack total up from 22 in 2017 to 38 in 2018, so there were some positive effects. That was good enough to jump the Bucs from dead last in 2017 to 19th in the league in sacks in 2018. If Ross can get that type of improvement from arguably the NFL’s worst secondary in 2018, then that would be considered a major win.

Let’s do thisEDTShareTweetShareShareYarcho’s Pick Six: A Song Of Ice And Cannon FireKim Klement-USA TODAY SportsIt’s been a while since we had a good ol’ fashioned Pick Six column, so what better way to bring it back than with a special Game Of Thrones edition as the series reaches its finale? You may wonder what the Buccaneers and George R.R. Martin’s beloved characters and universe have in common. Well, we’ll get into that, starting with what inspired this column to take place.First Shaquil Barrett Jersey , a few ground rules: this will not be a typical Pick Six column in that there won’t be a list of six things/people/players/stats following six different categories. Just simply some topics and a few lists and we’ll see where it goes from there.Also - and this should go without saying but I will say it anyway - THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. If you’re the type that is like my better half and are waiting for the season to end to binge the whole thing at once, turn away. I’m not that person and I have seen every episode of the series up to tonight’s finale and I will speak about it.So, with that being said, let’s Pick Six!Seriously...not kidding...there will be spoilers. This is your last chance.Game Of Thrones DraftSo, the USA Today decided to do a fun NFL mock draft where teams drafted characters from the show. You can check that out here, but this is what inspired the Pick Six to develop.We can skip right ahead to the Bucs pick for those that don’t want to go through the whole thing, but I do recommend it. A very fun read.For the Buccaneers, Nate Davis had them trade out of the five spot (which infuriated me to begin with) but he had them do so with the Carolina Panthers which makes it even worse. With Jon Snow, Arya Stark, Night King, Khal Drogo, Drogon all still on the board, he traded out with a division rival. Not okay.Daenerys Targaryen went first to Arizona, followed by Tyrion Lannister to San Fransisco, Viserion third to New York, and Cersei Lanniter to the Raiders. The Panthers were awarded Arya Stark who would now face(less) the Buccaneers twice a year. Arya is arguably the number one player available and the Bucs traded her away. The Bucs then slid all the way to pick sixteen where they draft...Euron Greyjoy??? Ok, I get it. He’s a filthy pirate with nothing but death and destruction on his mind. It wouldn’t hurt to have someone with that attitude on the defense. But, come on. That’s the best they could do? They give up a sure fire All-Pro for Euron. And just to pour salt in the wounds, Jon Snow slid all the way to 32 and the New England Patriots. Inexcusable.Casting “Game Of Pewter Thrones”So, which players translate to those we see (or have seen) on the screen? Let’s take a look;1.) Lavonte David as Jon Snow - Never the loudest Matt Gay Jersey , never the most boisterous. Just the guy that grinds and gets his job done. Players look to him to lead them, whether he wants them to or not because he’s done it right since day one. If the team were to select but one captain, it may very well be Lord Lavonte of House David.2.) Ryan Jensen as Tormund Giantsbane - No, I didn’t do this just because of the red hair. Ryan Jensen is a wildling. He will be as devout and dedicated to his people - especially his quarterback - as anyone. And if you’re the poor gutter rat that gets in his way or touches one of his men, he will beat the ever loving snot out of you. 3.) Gerald McCoy as Daenerys Targaryen - He was supposed to be the savior of the defense. Support and love came his way from all the realms. But slowly his devoted followers and believers began to turn on him. That started to eat away at his drive. New faces of the realm began to be drafted, becoming more beloved than he. More and more, his psyche wavered. Then when Lord Bruce of House Arians sailed in with his devoted soldiers, things took an unavoidable turn. Ser Gerald knew this was not his team. Not his kingdom. 4.) Jameis Winston as Arya Stark - The wild card. The one who never quite fits in the box you want them to, but he makes it work. Have there been missteps? Of course. Temporary blindness? Absolutely. However, when it comes to that big play, that big moment, no one wants to rise to the occasion more than Ser Jameis of House Winston. For every head scratching decision there are two that make you stand and cheer. And there is no one that more people were excited to see continue to grow than Ser Jameis.5.) Jason Pierre-Paul as Jamie Lannister - Before you freak out, just stay with me here: the comparisons go beyond the right hand injury. Ser Jason of House Pierre-Paul, member of the King’s Guard, was an honorable Knight for many years in the Meadowlands. Reliable, valiant, and one of the most feared Knights in all the realms. Then he lost his hand. It was difficult, but he battled back to one of the fiercest competitors, rising again despite all the doubt. Unfortunately, the Meadowlands got a new Lord and Ser Jason was sent packing. Joining the ranks along the Gulf Sands Matt Gay Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , Ser Jason rose once again to execute his enemies. (We’re going to ignore the evil, treasonous side of Jamie for the sake of looking at his great qualities that line up well with JPP.)6.) Bruce Arians as Ned Stark - Arguably the most noble man in all the realms, Lord Bruce of House Arians does not say words he does not mean to appease the masses. He does not believe in empty promises. He does not entertain the idea of surrounding himself with men or women he does not trust. A clear and just ruler - and has been known to “lose his head” every now and again.Six Best Quotes1.) “Not Today” - The famous quote courtesy of one Arya Stark (her response to the question “What do we say to the god of death?”) perfectly parallels the mind set and attitude of Jameis Winston. His never die attitude has gotten him in some trouble, but it also created some incredible moments.2.) “That’s What I Do. I Drink And I Know Things” - Tyrion Lannister is going to last from the first to the last episode as one of the ultimate fan favorites of Game Of Thrones. One of his most endearing qualities is his brutal honesty - whether he’s had a few wines or not. This is the embodiment of Bruce Arians, who might be one of the smartest football minds to ever join the Buccaneers. And it helps that he throws a post game tailgate for the players and staff every week.3.) “If You Think This Is Going To End Well, You Haven’t Been Paying Attention.” - Ramsey Bolton was one of the most vile and evil characters in television history, but this line was speaking directly to every Buccaneers fan alive. No, that isn’t for this season but rather every season for the last twelve years. There was always lofty expectations and high hopes only to be kicked in the gut.4.) “Bend The Knee.” - It’s either that or be set ablaze by one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons. Show your loyalty, surrender, whatever the case may be. With BA now in charge, the Bucs may be saying this is the rest of the NFC South before too long.5.) “A Girl Has No Name” - Now, this is another classic Arya line that applies to everyone. I’m not saying that players shouldn’t have any individuality. This is more about no one being above the team. It’s not about the name on the back - it’s the name on the front. It’s playing for the men beside you and winning for one another. Not personal stats or accolades. It’s all about the ring.6.) “When You Play The Game Of Thrones, You Win Or You Die.” - This is the NFL as a whole. It may not be a throne, but it’s a Lombardi. Only one team can ever be left standing at the end as confetti rains down like ashes over King’s Landing. The remaining 31 teams? Well, they all died. Just like Cersei Lannister said - you win, or you die.Six Numbers To Consider2,399 - The number of people to die on screen through the first seven seasons (season eight not yet calculated)2 - Total number of episodes where siblings Jon Snow and Arya Stark saw each other until being reunited in season eight1 - Game of Thrones was the most popular show in 2018 - despite airing zero new episodes38 - Total Emmys won, second most of any television series (SNL - 54)9 - Number of families in season one vying for the throne67 - Number of episodes with Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), the most of any cast memberSix Final WordsWho Will Get The Iron Throne?
