It seems like the bucs have a recent history of over compensating for weaknesses. They bring in several upgrades and a weakness becomes a strength..... Well on paper anyway. Remember back when they had a young promising offensive line? Davin Joseph, Aaron Sears, and trueblood. It looked like the nucleus of what would become a dominating line. That didn't quite pan out. Joseph was the only one that worked out. There was a similar situations with the WRs, though expectations weren't quite as high, it did seem as if the bucs would be set at receiver for years. They doubled down on receivers in the draft with Benn and Williams and had a few young pieces on the roster that we thought would stick, namely Sammy Straighter, and Preston Parker. Then came the D line. They doubled down on DTs and then doubled down on DEs in the draft. They also traded for Albert Haynesworth. Fat Albert and Brian price were jettisoned but the line remains largely intact. The problem is they aren't intact together.  Someones always injured, and the only one to make any game changing impacts was McCoy. Then last year, the tandem of guards was derailed by injury before they could play a game together.....
 Now the team has aligned the "No fly zone". A secondary that, on paper, should be easily a top 3 secondary. However, it seems like the bucs can't take what's on paper and translate it to the field. I don't want to jinx them, but several buc fans have to be keeping there fingers crossed. It seems like something always derails a position group just as its poised to become a strength. Injuries, players regressing, suspensions etc. Some fans have to be wondering will Revis get back to full health? will Eric Wright or Mark Barron regress? Or which one, or two will sustain season ending injuries? My money is on the high priced free safety that just got signed.  I should be knocking on wood as I type this, but its just what happens after being so optimistic so many times about the future of the bucs, only to watch things rapidly deteriorate. It feels like we are stuck in rebuilding mode. Its like we put time and energy into rebuilding the kitchen and as soon as we finish and start working on the bathroom, the kitchen sink starts leaking.

im not sure you are using "rebuilding" correctly.  we went out and got revis and goldson.  thats win now imo, not rebuild.

What? So if you add players that are top tier it means you can't consider it rebuilding? So these Last 2 off seasons we didn't rebuild the secondary, we "win nowed" the secondary? Whatever its all semantics.
