The No.14 shirt There had been only been two numbers worn by the top quarterbacks in Buc history until Josh and Jameis arrived on the scene, 12 and 14. Doug Williams and Trent Dilfer wore the former, whilst the No.14 shirt boasts a whole string of Buc starters throughout their history. Randy Hedberg was the unknown rookie who opened the 1977 season with cries of "Why not Minot?" in respect of the little college he attended, Minot State. Chuck Fusina backed up Doug Williams for three years but is more well known for winning two USFL titles. Jack Thompson was "The Throwin' Samoan" who cost the Bucs a first round pick in a trade with the Bengals in 1983. And as for Vinny, well enough has been written about his career and there was no chance of him being selected the best to wear No.14 for the Bucs. So after a brief appearance by former Georgia Tech QB Joe Hamilton in that number, it was worn by Brad Johnson during the Super Bowl victory and to great distinction during his career in Tampa Bay. But then after over a decade's absence, Ryan Fitzpatrick took over the number in 2017 and started several games in place of Jameis Winston including a pair of stunning games to open the 2018 season.
