    Thanks Scott – how does that # of underclassmen compare to recent years?

    Whatever we do, I really hope we don’t let some of the opportunities in FA pass us by and try to fix the abundance of holes we have entirely through the draft….that didn’t go so well as a 2015 plan…I understand the 2014 plan was quite the bust too, but maybe there is a compromise somewhere that has us pick up an Eric Weddle, or Eric Berry plus an Olineman of substance (or really any two players of substance) before we enter the draft…

      Hard to say how they equate right now. But the Bucs will be active in FA. They know they can’t do it all in the draft. Getting four solid starters like last year isn’t the norm.

        Thanks Mark – my fingers are crossed…I can honestly feel a tipping point coming if we give FA the old college try…

    Well Fans and sports reporter. If Tampa keeps lovie smith and the OC leaves. Then get another OC with a good track record on board ASAP, Plus Fired the DC in Frazier. There are some good coaches who can teach and Coach. How about bringing on board the DC from Jags. Look at now Tampa picks. They will pick between 8 &11 slots. Plus and extra pick in Rd-6 from another team. That is great. My 1st pick at #9 should be one of the following:CB/S Jalen Ramsey if still there! IF not Ramsley then one of the followingDL Deforest Buckner from Oregon;DL Robert Nkemdich(another warren Sapp),CB-Vernon Hardgreaves 111,DE-Emmanuel Ogbah-,LB/DL Reggie Ragland,OT Taylor Decker ,OT Jack Conklin. In Rd-2 Tampa could Trade down for more draft picks.In Rd-3 Tampa Trade b/u QB Glenn plus their pick and the other team 3rd rd and another draft choice. Plus later in Rd pick up another qb that would b/u Jameis Winston-Can’t wait for 2016 draft and the new players that will come on board.

    I totally agree with PR on continuity for JW. If Koetter gets a HC offer the Bucs MUST fire Lovie and give Koetter the job. JW IS the franchise now and his development is more important than ANY other factor. You guys that are selling change is ok are just plain wrong when it comes to young QB. Don’t take my word for it, listen to Pat Kirwan, Bill Polian and other NFL experts.

    And of course there are those who would have you think they are JW supporters and are so concerned about his continuity, when all one has to do is stroll over to JBF and read their disparaging comments about Winston.
    Now unlike my friend Buc1987 over at JBF, I don’t archive poster’s comments so they can be played back and hoist one on his own petard. However, I’m not beyond taking requests should that become necessary. lol.

    I’ll go on a limb here and predict that Mark Cook , Scott Reynolds and my buddy CG Master will want Jalen Ramsey just a hunch, ha “Go Noles”

    1. 6.1


      Jon you know me too well my friend.haha I would definitely go with jalen in a heartbeat. He brigs not only te skills and freakish athleticism, but that swag we need on defense. However he will never drop to us.
      I’m really liking Alexander from Clemson or the ok state de. We shal see now. Everything is in play with Lovie gone.

    Let’s aim for a true offensive genius…A humbled Josh McDaniel or a humbled Chip Kelly sounds good to me.
