The Buccaneers kick off training camp today and before the team took the field the new head coach, Lovie Smith, sat down with Big Dog.

Lovie Smith stressed to Big Dog that now that training camp is here the focus is trimming the roster to the final 53 and getting ready for the Carolina Panthers. There is a lot of questions about how this years training camp will look under the new regime Lovie said, "we're not going to kill our guys in practice."

One thing the new coach did stress is he likes the players he has been given to work with. "I like our football team. I like our chances," Lovie told Big Dog before the team started their first practice.
