On Thursday night, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will unveil a new helmet and logo on the NFL Network with Hall of Fame lineman Warren Sapp, and current Bucs Pro Bowler, Gerald McCoy. This is just another step in trying to move on from the last 5 years of Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano.
This got the guys from Fan Interference thinking about when Tony Dungy came along and the Bucs changed their colors to the current uniform. Lovie Smith, a position coach in Tampa Bay during the Dungy time, brought in to salvage this team and restore it to its glory days. So today, we are going to go through the Super Bowl season and find every current player or front office person that matches the criteria of the Bucs of the past. Here are the categories we need to fill.
We all know that Dungy could only take us so far, so when Lovie cannot get us over the hump, we will need a young energetic offensive minded head coach to take an already elite defense and score them 21 points.
Joe Jurevicius was everyone’s favorite wide out, so we also are going to need someone to come on as the free agent guy who will catch everything and convert on third down.
Other categories include:
Trade for a defensive end in his prime, but might not have lived up to expectations like Simeon Rice?
Trade for a Prima-Donna wide receiver like Keyshawn Johnson?
Sign an older game manager at quarterback like Brad Johnson?
Aging offensive linemen free agents like Randall McDaniel and Jeff Christy?
Free agent running back like Michael Pittman
Wild haired kicker who is wildly inconsistent like Martin Gramatica.
