The signings of Steussie, Deese, Stinchcomb and Garner were killers.
We have too many young players and a group of ageing players, not the bets mix. Athletes peak in their late twenties and we are completely deficient in that age group. Now if they can rebuild the D with a few good drafts and sensible FA additions, while the young O player mature, we could be fairly competitive in a couple of years.
No player leadership. Sidelines with the coaches is fine, but you need leaders on the field. I'd put that as more important right now than the age breakdown...
We're dealing with a team that won a SB on the back-side of their peak. Those of us fans that live in reality knew it would come and aren't insane at this point. Those that live in la la land and still think Lynch and Sapp should be here and Alstott should carry the ball more are really having a hard time letting go. Those times are over, it's going to take more rough times to build a team to be competitive again. It took forever before, the Bucs mortgaged the future to win a SB, they accomplished that and are now feeling the pain.Don't get it twisted, the SB makes it worth it. There is no questioning that. Ask an Eagle fan what he'd rather have. Look at Baltimore, they haven't been the same since the 2000 SB. Now, after 6 years they're competitive again.
