Offense of the future

Not much was made about it, but going into the bye week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced two fairly significant changes to the offense, changes that will potentially shape our offense for the next 3-5 years.  The most notable move was the insertion of Arrelius Benn into the starting lineup, opposite of Mike Williams.  The second year receiver, Sammie Stroughter, had occupied that spot, he'll transition to the slot role, a role most of us felt he should be in to start the season.  This means that both of our draft picks spent on receivers have already moved into the lineup, something to note as a positive for Mr. Dominik. 

The other change is Blount being more involved going forward.  Right now he will be the #2 running back as well as the short yardage and goal line back.  But the writing seems to be on the wall.  This is a move to get his feet wet in hopes that by years end he is the starter with a full load of carries awaiting him in 2011.

That means that along with our relatively young offensive line, we know have a second year QB, two rookie wide receivers to match with a second year slot receiver, and a "veteran" tight end with some youth in the backfield.  Our offense could very well be set for the next three years if all goes according to plan.  Get used to these names, they should be here and be putting up numbers for awhile.

It's a shame we can't see them this year....
