7. OL/DL one-on-ones remain the most entertaining part of practice.

During practices that are open to the public, the Buccaneers run all of their full-team drills on Field Three, within a few feet of the fan-filled bleachers. Some of the biggest cheers are reserved for when Josh Freeman hits Vincent Jackson deep downfield, or when a defensive back comes up with an interception. Still, with no real tackling and a ban on hitting the quarterback, it's sometimes hard to determine which side would have one any given play. Not so when the offensive and defensive linemen square off for their one-on-one rush drills. There, one angry pass-rusher battles one very large blocker, the intensity level shoots the roof and you can usually tell who won each rep.
