With the regular season, still a little over two months away. Profootballweekly.com has what some might call a “biased headline” proclaiming the Buccaneers are on a downward spiral. Siting last years late season collapse along with the over abundance of front office & coaching changes this off-season. Of course, the only thing that stands to be within reason at this point in time, is that they sight the defensive line still needs help. All the speculation is based on unnamed sources: NFL scouts, coaches and front-office personnel, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
While on paper, before any games are played, every team in the league could potentially have weaknesses within it’s rank & file, but ultimately it wont truly be known until the regular season gets under way. Some of the reports floating around the web seem to be a bit ingenuous and backhanded in nature towards the new regime.

I am going to have to call bull-spit on such a load of crap, the reason they are where they are at, at this juncture is becuase they have been able too grasp a multitude of things – have shown the ability to produce results in varying capacities and have worked hard at there craft - have gained the respect of there peers and demonstrated characteristics of sound leaders.
Those are the reasons, the duo is serving in their current capacities and what will help shape the future for the Bucs, not that they write things down and once collected sports cards.
