First-year Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford understands now why head coach Lovie Smith raved about his hand-picked franchise quarterback -- former Chicago Bears backup Josh McCown.
"Josh really is like another coach," the former University of California coach told USA TODAY Sports. "I can't say how impressed I am by everything Josh does, the time and energy he puts in to be the best. It's an understatement what Lovie said about him.
McCown was pretty impressive at times last year filling in for Jay Cutler in Chicago. So much so, some felt the team should have stuck with him. Now McCown is in Tampa throwing to Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. McCown is ranked just 27th on our list and will likely end up on the free agent wire in typical leagues.
