Bucs fans hopeful Winston will lead team to winning season

Bucs fans paid close attention to Jameis Winston's National Football League debut in the team's first preseason game, with the hope that Winston will lead the team to a successful season.

Fans packed Brick House Tavern and Tap in Tampa to watch the game. Many say they are optimistic about this season, especially on the heels of a poor record for the Bucs last year.

"We can only move forward from here, so I figure we got nothing else to lose," said fan Joe Fragomeni.

All eyes seem to be on Winston and fans believe he is the key to leading the team to a good season.

"I think he's going to do excellent for the Bucs. I think it's going to be an exciting season and he's going to bring a very different dynamic to the team," said Joseph Williams.

The team launched a new marketing campaign with the tag line "Siege the Day" to reinvigorate fans. Billboards, banners and TV spots evoke the message.

The Bucs next preseason game will be at home against the Bengals on August 24.
