2010 Can’t Be Any Worse

Might Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy be wearing pewter and red come April?

Might Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy be wearing pewter and red come April?

This has been a long season for Bucs fans. If Bucs fans run to a drug store for Zantac or Pepto Bismol in the waning days of 2009, it isn’t for what they may have consumed at holiday parties.

Lots of fans are already looking forward to 2010, if for no other reason than to forget 2009.

Ross Tucker of SI.com believes Bucs fans have something to look forward to in 2010.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers:Though it’s debatable whether Raheem Morris should survive this season, there is no debate about the guy who will be under center. Josh Freeman has played better than most people anticipated, even though he doesn’t have a wide array of weapons around him. His progress and the continued youth movement should lead to an improved record next season. Also, the defense promises to get better with the likes of Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and Tennessee safety Eric Berry available in the draft.

The new year won’t be very special if the Bucs somehow decide to draft offense in the first round. Joe just might have to run out and try to tackle a freight train if that happens.

    Joe, The train wouldntt be moving from all the other Bucs fan that have beat you to it !!

    As long as we get one of the Big 3 Defenders you mentioned we will be OK

    Unless there are some real surprises at the combine, I don’t see an offensive player that warrants the high draft pick the Bucs will have. The top players are on the defensive side of the ball. However, if the Bucs trade down, then all bets are off.

  3. CharlieB Says:

    I agree with Louie. I’m honestly not all that opposed to drafting offense if we trade down. Our defense has been playing well. Other than Chris Hovan and Ronde Barber, they’re all young too. A new DT and a new CB is really all we need. On offense, we need a long term no1 receiver. Sammie will be great in the slot, but he just doesn’t have the size to be a number 1 unless he develops into the next Steve Smith. The O-Line needs help in depth. We have the talent there, so hopefully we break out of the funk next year. I’d like to see them get rid of mr. yellow.

    the 1 round pick should be gerald mccoy or eric berry (or taylor mays if he still available, maybe trafding down and get him) in second round we need a WR, maybe golden tate still available!!!

  5. Dylan Says:

    with the 3rd overall pick we need to select eric berry, simply because he will be the best player on the board and a walking image of ed reed or sean taylor if he lives up to his hype. No Mccoy, sabby gets burned every series and what has he done this season since he has taken over as a starter. tanard,berry and aqib? yes, and in the 2nd round we need to snag a DE or DT or even a corner like patrick robinson if he slips that far, yes we need a WR but there is free agency and we do have K2. but i say we get eric berry 3rd and we will have 2 top 10 picks in the 2nd round so we should snag a DE(carlos dunlap if he falls that low because of the whole DUI situation) WR(golden tate) or Corner(patrick robinson because rhonde is getting old). Those are some real steals in the top of the 2nd round if they happen to slip, This is a much higher draft class then last year.
