Bucs future success?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; The Bucs were something like 60m under the cap. Now they're spending all kinds of money on top FA's. Am I missing something with the QB situation there? Isn't theirs kinda crappy?...

Josh Freeman is their Franchise QB; and has been inconsistent. They spent a hell of a lot to protect him with Nicks and a great target for him in Vincent Jackson.

If they can get some of their defensive troubles fixed with the draft and free agency, they're gonna be a force to be reckoned with.

They should leap frog the Falcons into 2nd in the division...

Coaching and lockerroom togetherness is what they're lacking

I agree with Mitch. On paper their offense seems a bit intimidating with Blount, Freeman, Winslow, M. Williams, and now V. Jackson.

I think it will all come down to how well Schiano can keep all his players on task.

Seen how well big money and big names worked out for Philadelphia.. and Vick is hands down better than Freeman... I don't expect much from the Bucs with Freeman there.

They'll improve and I believe they'll be second behind us simply because Atlanta is losing Abraham and Lofton. Their D was already lacking, but that hurts them even more..

Don't ever let the Bucs fool you. They have a very decent team that just played horrible last year, especially down the stretch. Freeman is an outstanding QB who like many on the team simply had a bad year. He will bounce back for sure. This is one team that would not surprise me if they pulled off a worst to first deal.

Donīt like to, but I have to agree. It will be a marathon between the Saints, Tampons and Failclowns till the end of the regular season!

We simply canīt loose games like in St. Louis last year and expect to be the #1 seed.

The NFL - what have you done for me lately league?

I can remember prior to his down year, the media were all over Freeman's jockstrap. People were evening grouping him into the second tier of quarterbacks. My how things change fast.

Tampa sign my friend Dan Orlovsky. All that means is I could see the Saints play twice in person next year. If I have any money at all. Good for Dan. He's really a very nice guy.
