Loosing an All-star Buccaneer

Injuries are unavoidable and unfortunate. Guessing who might be on the depth chart from week to week is like guessing when the world will end. An Elite team is one who has talent on and off the bench, a team that can make the proper adjustments to personnel, depth, or schemes if necessary for a win. Ladies and Gentlemen I believe it is safe to say that we are not yet an Elite team especially considering our depth. For instance, it is very important for any team to have at least 3 good defensive ends. How many Bucs Fans can actually name the chosen third defensive end for this team....... It’s okay, I’ll wait.

Our lack of depth worries me and it brings me to the contemplation of losing a star player on this team. What if we lost a Gerald McCoy or a Doug Martin? I know it wouldn’t be possible to duplicate these players production but are we in a good enough position to sort of make-up or mask such a tragedy if it were ever to happen? What if we lost a lesser, un-proven player in Jonathan Banks or even Mason Foster. Who can step up and fill in for those non star athletes. Would we be able to bounce back from any injury at this point? These are just a few questions that I’m not sure Schiano can address but what I do know is that we need better depth to be successful in this league.

*Being that I can only add one poll for the Offense, I will add another post asking the same poll question for the defense.
