Freeman expects better result in London this time
Question of the Day
“They’ve got a different Bucs team (to watch),” Morris said. “And they’ve got a younger football team right now that’s coming out there ready to play. Hopefully these guys come out and play fast, hard, smart and consistent like they have been all season.”
London might seem a bit different to the Bucs as well.
The team opted to spend all week in Britain to get adjusted to the time difference and climate _ unlike the Bears, who are preparing at home and aren’t set to arrive until Friday.
After a day off Tuesday that included some sightseeing, the Bucs held their first practice Wednesday outside their luxury hotel in Bagshot, southwest of the capital.
It’s a different setup from 2009, when the team also chose to stay at home until Friday.
“Getting our players here, getting them acclimated to the city, letting them have their day off here, takes some of the angst away from coming at the end of the week,” Morris said. “It’s like a college setting, we’ve got a bunch of young guys who love being around each other, so we just wanted to have that bonding moment.”
