Darrelle Revis: Bucs need changes
By Pat Yasinskas
TAMPA, Fla. -- Without going into specifics, Tampa Bay cornerback Darrelle Revis said Thursday that some change is needed in the way the Buccaneers go about their business.
To be clear, Revis wasn’t talking about making a coaching change. He simply was saying the Bucs need to do some things differently to avoid another season like this one.
“I think we do need to change some things this offseason as we move forward as players and as coaches and figure things out and try to turn the win-loss column to more wins,’’ Revis said. “There are some adjustments we’ve got to make in the offseason, but we will. We’ll do that and try to turn things around.
“After every season, you’ve always got to evaluate yourself. That’s the process. You’ve got to evaluate yourself as a player and as coaches as well. We’ve all got to do it and try to figure out a way to be better in 2014.’’
As a team leader, Revis said he would welcome the opportunity to meet with coaches and players to talk about what changes are necessary to make the Bucs a winning team.
“This is my seventh year,’’ Revis said. “After every year I’ve talked to coaches and players and tried to figure out a way how we can be better the next year. I’m sure the coaches are going to be very open to that and players are going to be very open to talking and try to figure out what was the problem and what we need to fix moving forward to be a better team next year."
