Who are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

At this point. I don't know. In the Dungy era we were known for great defense and playing Buc Ball (being able to run the ball). In the Gruden era, it was more west coast offense and great defense. But in the Morris era, what is the identity of this team? We are supposed to be a run first team but yet we haven't invested in the run game (except signing Derrick Ward). We got lucky finding Blount and we have no capable backup or spell back behind him, and we don't run the ball very often anyways. Jeff Faine is the most overrated center in the leauge. He stinks at run blocking and he misses alot of block on pass protecting. The money he's getting paid he should be a pro bowler, but he is a disappointment. Josh Freeman is struggling this year throwing the ball and yet we fail to utilize our weapons. We traded up for Luke Stocker in the 4th round and he's been a non factor. Benn has show that he is a playmaker but is rarely used. And on defense we overall stink. But look at our scheme that we run and look at the personnel that we have in place. Quincy Black. Why is he on our team? He looks like he would be more suited for a 3-4 scheme (imo). Hayes is a great coverage linebacker but horrible at stopping the run. And Foster was stopping the run at one point and still continues to struggle in coverage. E.J. Biggers does not belong on the outside covering receivers one on one in man coverage. Our defensive line shows flashes but continues to be inconsistent. Sean Jones is terrible at coverage but can stop the run. So you have half of the defense that is decent or good and half that is just terrible. What does that equal? Inconsistent play on defense. We have one veteran on the team and that is Ronde Barber. He doesn't come across as that vocal leader to get this team going on defense, and now we are depending on young players to become leaders that haven't really done anything yet. I was a big Raheem fan, but I think his time with us will end soon. We have a lot of pieces in place. We just need to put them together. We need some coaches across the board who can fix this mess. Give us an identity on offense and defense, and bring some veteran guys in to mix in with our young talent. This 25 and under only team experiment has not worked. Lets correct our mistakes some how. I cant take another season like this.
