The Buccaneers were the only team of the eight acquiring that top talent to win a Super Bowl with that player. "But I wish him the best, besides when he plays us".

"It's always a challenge (to face a team with a new coach)", McCarthy told reporters Monday. The past year of my career I went up there and wasn't any good anymore and stole their money. "When things like this happen and when decisions are made we have guys in our locker room who know how to handle it like men". I don't believe we were anywhere close to where the Bears were. That's the only thing left on our list that won't happen. "One of the reasons I'm here is because of him".
