Time For A Bucs Makeover

February 7th, 2020

NFL Network believes the Bucs need a makeover.

And that specific person is closet Bucs fan Peter Schrager of “Good Morning Football.”

Despite speculation that Decision Jameis 2020 already was made, Schrager wants to shake up the Bucs. But in reality, it is not much of a shakeup at all, lest for one position.

Schrager wants the Bucs to take a big swing and sign Tom Brady. “Give him the world,” Schrager said. Now Schrager didn’t necessarily say run off Jameis, but Schrager did suggest Jameis is a backup plan if the Bucs cannot lure Brady to the west coast of the east coast.

Other than that, Schrager wants the Bucs to draft a running back in the first round — where have you heard that before? — and keep all the free agent defenders.

Schrager nearly began laughing at the thought of the Bucs letting the NFL sack leader (Shaq Barrett) walk away saying, “Who lets the NFL sack leader get away?”

Oh Pete, you don’t know Bucs’ history very well, do you? Letting Shaq get away would be such a Bucs thing to do.

You can listen (and watch) the full segment of Schrager’s tips for the Bucs’ offseason in the NFL Network video below.

    Fitzpatrick had a higher qb rating than Winston in 2019. I don’t expect him to monumentally improve. I think he’s the biggest remaining hole on the team. There’s several guys they can replace him with.

    I love the RB pick but cmon now😒

  3. Sport Says:

    1. Keep this defense together
    2. Get a RT – Draft or FA
    3. Solve your QB for the right price – since I trust BA so much, I’ll let him choose who.
    4. Then draft or acquire FA For RB

    Coach’em up and kick some ass!

    In BA I Trust!

    Hard pass. Brady has 2 years at best left. He has lost the speed on his passes that he needs to fit the ball in tight windows and this is only going to get worse. Sure he would be great to fill seats and potentially be a good mentor to a rookie qb, but that is about all we would get out of him. Franchise Jameis, get a high round rookie rb that is a 3 down threat (I’m looking at you CEH22), see if you can kick the tires on David Johnson for rb3 money, plus up the o-line depth and give him one more year under BA. Maybe get BA to hit up the Glazers to add Carson Palmer to the payroll and have him mentor JW3.

  5. LuxuryLuggageDelivery4Less Says:

    Stop all of this Tom Brady non-sense!! When was the last time you saw him throw a pass over 20 yards?

    ‘Time For A Bucs Makeover’

    This has got to include changing those bush- league looking uniforms…
    Change the pewter back to the goldish looking color instead of the gray…
    The gray is what makes it all so awefull looking and unappealable..

  7. BrianBucs Says:

    The Bucs biggest total makeover needs to start at the QB position. PERIOD.

    Who are you talking about Michael Bennett? He’s not Shaq, they were both getting the same number of sacks only Shaq was playing part time and Bennett was a full time player who wanted to get top money for reaching 9 sacks in a contract year, the most he had before that playing full time is 4. Everyone else was old.

    You dont spend a first round pick on a running back you dont have to….You guys must think doug martin was a success as a first round pick.

    Then GM .

  10. Alaskan Abdominal Snowman Says:

    IMO we are really not that far off.
    Priority one: OL
    Priority one B: Improved QB Play
    Priority two: DL
    Priority three: RB
    Priority four: WR3
    Priority five: Safety

    I believe Jameis will play better in year two of this system and cut his turnovers and increase his wins. Out of what is available, he would be my choice.
    I don’t think Brady would come here, but if that happened that would be pretty crazy. If I’ve learned one thing watching football through the years, it’s never bet against Brady.

  11. stravenite Says:

    First big change required, get rid of JW3, the magician who can make W’s disappear !

  12. BigHog Says:

    There is a lack of civility and lots of stupidity in the Tampa Bay Area!!

  13. 941bucsfan Says:

    Cant wait til the bucs announce winston is returning, so all these ppl can shut up

  14. Defense Rules Says:

    Idiotic statements like “Give him the world” (to lure Brady to Tampa Bay) are why it’s so hard to take media types like this seriously. Tells me right there that this guy doesn’t have the foggiest clue what the Bucs real salary Cap situation is or how many UFAs we need to sign to have a quality TEAM.

    Give Brady the world and the Bucs couldn’t afford enough other ‘pieces’ to win anything but the NFC South cellar yet again. Bucs are not ‘one player away’ from anything. Plus, quality TEAMS have DEPTH (like the Saints with Bridgewater?) and you don’t build DEPTH by mortgaging the farm. And even if we were one player away, it wouldn’t be a 42-year-old anything.

    I’ll go with that except GM 1st, because we are in cap hel!, and he put us there, besides I don’t trust his picks,you never know if he is going with a player or a new waterboy. He makes me nervous like Winston does

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    No to Brady, yes to Shaq.

    On a side note, that picture just reminds me of how we cheapen the legacy of Arthur Ashe and the word “courage.” Stand on your OWN legacy.
    That’s all I have to say about that.

  17. Buc believer Says:

    Signing Brady makes about as much sense as signing Joe Montana. Brady is WAY

  18. Buc believer Says:

    To old,

  19. BucEmUp Says:

    brady would get killed here, Leftwich will ruin any qb who plays here

  21. D1 Says:

    Brady has the arm to warm up with 50 Itty yd bombs before the start of practices.

    Its damned difficult to imagine a scenario where Brady gets pummeled behind the bucs oline. It’s not winston =Brady , which is a monkey in your wrench , so to speak.

    But no worries, only way Brady arrives in TIA, is his original flight is diverted

  22. LuxuryLuggageDelivery4Less Says:

    Brady should be smart enough to know that he is a system QB. Every time Brady has been out for extended perions the Pats have kept winning. They did so with Jacoby Brissett and another QB who got paid big time. Neither have enjoyed the success the did under Bellichick with their new teams. If he’s smart, he will retire and not risk his GOAT title by going to another team.

  23. 813bucboi Says:

    i agree with Schrager….

    TB is 42 now i believe and wants to play until he’s 45….offer him a 2year 40mil contact and 3% of the bucs…..

    we have defense, weapons, coaching….

    imagine JPP, SUH and BRADY leading this team…..

    with BL calling plays Brady + evans = Brady + Moss….

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

  24. Wesley Says:

    Gotta start with a new q.b..

  25. Bird Says:

    That pic is hilarious joes
    Now thats a make over …once an icon to many on a wheaties box

    I wish we had extra picks this year
    I would love a young talented qb and stud running back with 1st two picks

    However , they need guys in the trenches so bad
    You have to get a stud oline tackle
    Someone on dline needed too as they cannot keep everyone from last year …unless they move on from jameis which i dont see yet. They will give jameis the tag.

    Free agency and draft not that far off to keep dreaming again that this is the year …after almost 20 years 😂

    Cap hell lasted one year (last year). We now have 90+ million to work with. That’s not ‘cap hell’.

  28. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Amazing how many new usernames are popping up. A person could begin to think conversations are staged by certain users to create the illusion of agreement.

  29. martinii Says:

    I am not a Brady to Buc’s supporter. First because I don’t like to waste brain cells on insane unrealistic drivel and second I hate to see One of the best QB’s in the history of the game struggling to survive at the Ray Jay. Go out on top Tom, After your tenure with the Pats and all your success with Belicheat don’t reduce yourself to struggling 47 year old has been trying to perform the impossible. Let us remember you as the winner you are.

  30. 813bucboi Says:

    before the glazers announce JWs return, they’ll announce their are no more excuses for JW!!!!!

    Amen to that!!!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  31. Danny Says:

    No RBs in the first round please. Or safeties (looking at you Jason Licht)

  32. Joe in Michigan Says:

    If Brady goes anywhere besides NE, it’ll be Las Vegas, IMO. We could trade a 2nd Rounder for Derek Carr, if Brady does sign with the Raiders.
    Agreed, I wouldn’t want a RB in the 1st Round this year.

  33. Craig Says:

    Brady already has the world in his hand, why would he want to come and sweat here. He’d melt into a puddle of money. Forget it, he will end up as belichick’s QB coach before becoming offensive coordinator.

    There are a lot of good OTs in the draft, but only two world class safeties.

    Trade down in round ! to get McKinney or Delpit.

    With two round 2 picks, get that OT and an upgrade at RB.

    Round 3 grab a QB. Fromm, Hurts, Gordon or Morgan. At least a few of them will be around.

    Round 4 DE, for depth and to learn for a year.

    5-6- O-Line.

    Do this after signing as many of the Free Agents on the team as possible. Perriman might end up a Saint, but Justin Watson will be fine with some more reps.

    Thank you.

    Luxury luggage,

    For future reference, all QB’S are “system” players. ALL of them.

    You do have an interesting point , when Brady has lost playing time due to injury and suspension the team continued to win. However, this doesn’t support any idea that Brady is just a system player.

    It is evidence that billichek is the most flexible and greatest Head Coach our all time. But there’s no mention of this in your comments so …either it’s a colossal oversight or lack of recognition in the face of overwelming and irrefutable evidence. I digress.

    Brady is available, I don’t believe for the Bucs, He is the GOAT, and physically he’s in great condition. Brady for 2 yrs is ideal not a negative. Signing him would transform this franchise overnight and bring fans back to rayjay. His legacy would have far more reaching effects on the team and the area than 2years.

    He’s the greatest QB in the history of the game and predictably Tampa fans say no…… ..fans of this franchise is precisely why the Glazer’s will never ever consider selling the team.

  36. SufferingSince76 Says:

    D1- LOL!! Good one.

  37. SufferingSince76 Says:

    I mean your first comment.

  38. D1 Says:


    I don’t get the let Perryman walk thinking. It hasnt been 45 days from the bucs starting 2 games down their 2 best receivers. WTF, is going on in Tampa…are the pirates spraying amnesia gas at night or is crack now abt, approved!

    Dotson and Brate and or Howard is players that are not productive and not in the future plans for this team. Letting unproductive and broken down players frees up money to sign the best 3rd receiver in the NFL! We needed him just a month ago so think….keep good and great players. CUT Tightends because they’re little more than sub par, undersized linemen in BA’s scheme.

    While we’re on the subject, sign a couple of plow pulling massive run blocking oline players and line them up at TE. Running game fixed.

  39. 3isaBust Says:

    Brady at 60 is better than Jamoist at 25. Cut the driftwood and let’s get back to winning. If America’s turnover machine is back under center next season, we’re not making the playoffs. Period.
