Times are changing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gone is Greg Schiano, who compiled an 11-21 record in two seasons at the helm. In is former Chicago Bears head coach, and one-time Bucs’ linebackers coach, Lovie Smith.
It also sounds like there could be significant shuffling of the roster.
In keeping with the theme, players who are around when the season opens will be sporting new headgear that was unveiled on Thursday.

I’m not a particularly big fan of chrome helmets that can be seen from outer space like the ones making the rounds in college football, but I do like the chrome face mask on this one.
The Buccaneers last changed their helmet design prior to the 1997 season. They made it to the Super Bowl five years later. I imagine Lovie Smith is hoping it won’t take that long this time around.Google+
