Managing McCown Key to Rams’ Success in Tampa

Gregg Williams Featured

If the Mannings are pro football’s first family of quarterbacks, then the McCowns must be the antithesis. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting quarterback, 35-year-old Josh McCown, has logged stats in 60 games for six teams in the National Football League since 2002 (Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Carolina, Chicago and Tampa Bay).

Friends Become Opportunities in OTAs


Watching the 2014 St. Louis Rams conduct drills in OTAs, I’m reminded of how I broke into the NFL as an undrafted rookie. I couldn’t think of anything else during my first sessions with the Los Angeles Rams in 1994. It wasn’t about achieving some a childhood dream of playing in the pros or making a million dollars. I was thinking solely ...
