There is no reason to think of what super star free agent the Bucs could grab next year. It's not going to happen. There won't be any cap space to add another piece to the puzzle. The puzzle is done. The pieces are in place to win now. It would be a shame if the Bucs don't make the playoffs this year. If that doesn't happen. There will be a price to pay. The price would be a number of pink slips going out.
Greg Schiano now has a team that coaches would drool for. Every position is accounted for, and the only thing to argue about is if Revis' knee is healthy and do the Bucs have enough depth. I'm not worried about Freeman. The Bucs defense was awful last season. A passer that throws for over 4000 yards 27 TDs and 17 ints. Any fan would praise that if the defense didn't let up so many points. The losses were blamed on Josh. That's ridiculous in my opinion. Freeman has some problems, but with a better defense. It should make him look better, and not feel the pressure of coming from behind every game.
This is the first time I can say this in a long while. The success of the Buccaneers rests more on the game plan than the players. The Bucs have the players, but do they have the coaching staff to push them over the edge? The cap money is basically gone. The team is formed. This will be your team for the next few years. Hopefully the formula has worked and we see something special. Time will tell. I'm optimistic.
