The No.7 shirt
This shirt was the domain of the back-up quarterback for many years in Buc history. Even Craig Erickson started his career as No.3 to Vinny Testaverde and Steve DeBerg before going on to start for two seasons.

Jeff Komlo was a former Detroit Lions QB who was the No.3 QB during 1983 and saw meaningful action in only one game that season. Alan Risher was a refugee from the USFL who held for extra points throughout 1985 but whose only appearance on the stat sheets was a fake fieldgoal against the Rams in October that year.

John Reaves was a former Tampa Bay Bandit who started the first two replacement games, and even former Washington/Colorado coach and part-time gambler, Rick Neuheisel, wore No.7 with the Bucs based on his performance against Tampa for San Diego in the second of those strike games. Jeff Carlson was No.3 QB but did make one start in 1990 - and no, he is not related to Channel 5's Mike Carlson. And Sean Landeta was the first non-QB to wear No.7 when he replaced Tommy Barnhardt after the latter got hurt during 1997.

Which brings us to the best QB to ever wear No.7, Craig Erickson, and Martin "FUAT" Gramatica. The latter's problems began before he switched his number to 10, but Erickson was one of the lads, a player all the linemen loved. And we even managed to get a first round pick from the Colts for him in 1995 too.

Bruce Gradkowski wound up starting 11 games as a rookie in 2006 and then was replaced as starter and in the No.7 jersey by Jeff Garcia who had the role for two seasons in Tampa before being allowed to leave through free agency. His replacement, Byron Leftover, will probably remain the biggest No.7 in Buc history.
