Tony Dungy to be inducted into Ring of Honor


On Monday night, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a nationally-televised primetime game. During halftime, legendary Bucs head coach Tony Dungy will be inducted into the Buccaneers’ Ring of Honor with a festive ceremony.

Dungy certainly deserves the honor, as he has the highest winning percentage of all Buccaneers head coaches with a record of 54 – 42. In his six seasons with Tampa Bay, his first team as a head coach, the Bucs went to the postseason four times. Not bad at all.

Buccaneers owner Bryan Glazer, however, thinks Dungy’s impact on the franchise was so immense that it cannot be measured solely in wins and losses. His impact goes way beyond that. Said Glazer in a story published on the official Buccaneers web site:

“Tony Dungy’s impact on the Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay community is not measured in terms of wins and losses…
Tony transformed our entire organization and established a winning culture that set the foundation for the most successful era in our franchise’s history.

Through his exceptional leadership, Tony set a new benchmark for excellence on and off the field that we still strive to achieve
to this day.” 

Coincidentally, the day of the Ring of Honor ceremony is when the Bucs play the Steelers, the first team he ever played as a safety for and won a Super Bowl in 1978.

The game is expected to be an offensive, high-scoring showdown with the two best passing offenses – at the moment, at least – facing off against each other. This game might easily come down to the very last possession. The Bucs should be able to pull it out and win by three points.
