As much as I detested Shannon Sharpe the player (primarily because he was so good), I really can't complain about Shannon Sharpe the television personality. In his weekly column, he argues a strong case for why Jerry Rice should have gotten at least one catch last week to extend his streak. He's also not yet sold on the Indianapolis Colts (because of their defense) or the Atlanta Falcons (because of their opponents) -- and despite my best efforts, I can't disagree with him on any accounts. Ugh!
The Bucs' rookie made a lot of big plays last year, but he'll need to cut down on turnovers and sloppy throws to live up to his draft status.
