Got the contract information from here.... http://rotoworld.com/teams/contracts/nfl/tb/tampa-bay-buccaneersIf you're going to play GM, you have to take everything into account...
You keep saying how that much turn over in one year will never happen and that it would hurt the team....but I'm not buying it. Ruud and Black are the only starters on that entire list. Most are 2nd and 3rd stringers, and many are only special teams players or practice squad guys. It's not nearly as big as you are making it out to be. I think with Stukes taking over ST's... some player continuity is paramount. Black needs to stay. Secondly, have you been watching since Raheem got here? absolutely For the last two years we have had huge turnover on our roster. Today's team is already unrecognizable compared to our 2008 roster. Rah and Dom are not afraid to make big changes and last year showed that having a bunch of new young guys doesn't mean we have to struggle. I get that Coach Morris only is going to put up with a guy until he can replace him. The 2008 and 2009 teams desperately needed a good cleaning house. The 2010 team (IMO) not so much. This is where we disagree. [/i]You are taking your opinion and trying to state it as fact. The truth is Ruud and Black are the only truly notable changes. Some may say Caddie too. Other than that it is simply an upgrade of depth. Trimming the fat so to speak. Moving on from players like Elbert Mack, John Gilmore, and Tim Crowder is not going to hurt the team. Especially when you replace them with Ras-I Dowling, Kevin Boss, and Ryan Kerrigan. It's my opinion and from my perspective, just as with yours - it's as factual as I know - Of those three players, Crowder (again IMO) is the keeper. Also, how am I hurting the front seven's ability to get to the QB? You think replacing Crowder and Kyle Moore with Kerrigan and Ray Edwards or Charles Johnson is a downgrade? You think Ruud and Black are better pass rushers than Durant, Irving or McKenzie? This one has me scratching my head. System familiarity. I think Black has more value than the two less experienced guys, but there is still a system to learn - from all reports, quite a complex one. That in itself degrades our pass rush, run d (again IMO.) I love the idea of Kerrigan, Edwards, Crowder and Romeus as our DE's.
I'm sorry, but you lost all credit when you called Chad Spann a speed back. I go to NIU, I love him as a player, but fast and Chad Spann do not go together. He runs like a bull, but he's not fast.
