One thing that every one forgets is why the Tampa 2 got popular and why in the glory days you could not play the physical game with the Bucs . The players we had laid the lick first and was not afraid to get hit . But of course not every player has it in them to play that aggressive , what Tampa had that every one did not have a group of 5 players
1. Warren Sapp
3. Mike Alstott
These five Bucs were the force that put the intimidation into other teams , we were built physical but with these five we were a force . Sapp we all know the physical athletic freak of a player he was, but he made it a point to be a force in the intimidation department even when he would get interviewed he would talk about hitting somebody . Keyshawn come on man, a tightened playing wideout where you think Hines Ward got his style from , not the fastest but still put up numbers, made it a key going over the middle to make that physical catch and , would get back up from a big hit to show that he was not intimidated by a defender .This guy is so smart he could use his mouth to intimidate some players he did to a ATL db in 06 and caught the longest pass or his career . Mike " A-train " Alstott I mean thats all that should be said but by recent comments some must do not remember about what he did during his career .DO you remember the game Warren Sapp got into it with Mike Sherman from Green Bay, if you do you should know that Alstott was the reason we won that game, he took it over tacklers were just bouncing off of him and he was running past him . He was someone no one wanted to see I mean just practicing against our own defenders made them better cause i'm pretty sure Alstott ran them over , that was the reason John Lynch could go heads up with the Bus . John is another guy in this group of 5, just think if you were Moss or TO even Jerry Rice when you played Tampa you were worried about going against Lynch .And speed was not an issue Marshall Faulk could not escape his wrath he would pop the mess out of him while Faulk was juking . What about Mr. Brooks ? We all know the resume he is also Mr. consistent with a great work ethic . On top of that he was also one of the reasons why Mike Vick hated playing us . Mike did not use to tell his team mates in Atlanta to get motivated for no reason no it was the fact that his speed was not a factor with us and we use to hit him in his mouth . There was 1 time when Vick tried to run and Brooks hit him at and unusual angle Vick was on the ground for a while ,the very next play Vick was in the shot gun and when he was calling for the ball his hands were shaking once the ball was snapped Brooks fired off the line like a cannon ran over TJ Ducket and hit Vick in his mouth again . Tampa now is missing some of those elements thats why I think Suh and Mays are guys that can get us back to that intimidation factor . The group of five listed were not just enforcers they had quality skill to go along with , also it made other teams respect players like Greg Spires or a guy like Nate Webster .What are some draft picks that can get us back to the days of old ?
