    It was sensationalism and lazy journalism at it’s worst. At minimum you would think people would do a little research but they didn’t and the big ‘news’ sites were only interested in perpetuating a narrative for clicks.

    I’m a little surprised to hear this from Monken “You have no idea, until you get around them day to day and see what they’re about”

    I recall a lot of comments about Winston heading into the draft – most of the negative ones were either concerned about his INT rate, or his assault charge…but in terms of who he was “day to day” on the football field, I never heard anything but praise about his leadership, his teammates loved him, he never quit in a game but rather had all of these comebacks, his coaches loved him, etc etc…

    Not sure what Monken was getting at there…

    Either the buccaneers knew all about Winston as they thoroughly interviewed and evaluated or some folks have been blowing stuff up peoples collective azzes. In this article some the author would like to deliver a message that the WR coach wasn’t part of the bucks efforts? Don’t need to go back and review prior offerings.
