McCown No. 1 -- on unofficial depth chart

The Bucs just sent out their press release for Thursday night's game and it includes an unofficial depth chart.

I want to emphasize the word "unofficial'' before I finish this sentence, but Luke McCown is listed No. 1 at quarterback. Byron Leftwich is second, Josh Freeman third and Josh Johnson is fourth.

Does this mean anything? Probably not. It's just an unofficial depth chart and that's the order the Bucs have listed their four quarterbacks all preseason.

I still think Luke McCown did enough to win the job Saturday night in Jacksonville, but Raheem Morris said Sunday he wasn't ready to make a decision and hinted he may wait until after Thursday's preseason game with Miami to make a choice. I suspect that's how it will play out.

Morris is scheduled to address the Tampa media in the next hour and we'll let you know if he announces anything definitive. But, like I said, don't count on it coming today.
