Bucs future success?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Florida once bought a World Series Championship with Free Agents. LOL I figured Tampa to be much better last year then they proved to be. They lack unity and have no identity. They could be very good this year...or they ...

I figured Tampa to be much better last year then they proved to be. They lack unity and have no identity. They could be very good this year...or they could suck again. I have no freaking idea.

Vincent Jackson's really not that great. I know, his size and speed make him seem so dangerous... But he was never an elite WR with a semi-elite QB like Rivers so who actually thinks Freeman and Jackson are going to light it up??? They have Nicks, but a LG never made a team badass.

Bucs will be improved, there's no question about it. I said two years ago they weren't as good as their record, well last year they aren't as bad as their record either. I still think they'll be a notch below both the Saints and Falcons but there's no doubt Bucs will be improved. If their defense plays (and guys like McCoy stay healthy) they might surprise a lot of people around the league. The NFC South, hands down will be the toughest division in football.

From a Saints perspective I don't like going up twice against any team that has had this many changes...for example it took a little while for Payton to really get Mike Smith's number in Atlanta, to where Payton could really ring their bell every year. I was much happier with Raheem Morris down there in Tampa, because that way you knew it could be a beatdown whenever Payton wanted or needed one....I also don't like the fact that nobody really knows this guy Schiano on the NFL level...most coaches have a track record or history you can look at for tendencies, it's not like you can really go back and look at film of Rutgers versus the Iowa State Cyclones in the "New Era Pinstripe Bowl" and figure out what he is doing to do with a real NFL team ....

Sign all the free-agents you want... Your coach wasn't even the best coach in the BIG EAST lol. They're not playing Syracuse anymore! The Bucs will still be terrible.

In Tampa there is optimism seasoned with some disbelief that the scumbag owners of Man. U. are dumping any coin at all on the Bucs. No one is whispering playoffs, or division titles.

The truth is, every head coach in the NFL had another job first and for lots of them it was in colleges. No one knows if this guy is another buffoon who will be over his head at the next level, or is this head coach a steal that other teams will wish they had plucked from the college ranks.

So the mood in Tampa is curious... not nearly so optimistic as yours, even with Commisar Roger not done with his Politburo-style crackdown on your team. We may not like you much in Tampa, but we hate him more, I'm not sure if there is anyone who likes the snake.

I couldn't say it any better than Xandtar just did.

I'm happy with the Schiano hiring. He is the polar opposite of Raheem (yeah, the guy who was yucking it up with Aaron Rodgers in the middle a friggin game).

Schiano has been endorsed by Belichick which impresses me.

Just happy we no longer have fan-boy coaching our team (and defense).
