Our o-line is not nearly as bad at pass protection as the "draft Joe Thomas" camp would have you believe. They gave up 1 sack to ATL and while a poor play by Davis Gradkowski held the ball way too long for a 3rd and 4 where all you need is a quick read and release.
Quinn's schedule is laughable compared to Russell. And against a great defense (Michigan) he sucked.

And against a great defense (Michigan) he sucked.It's not the schedule, it's who's coaching Quinn that makes him more valuable than Russell. Quinn is being coached by Wiess who caoched one of the best QB's in the game today in Brady. Quinn is running a pro-sytle offense and his learning curve will be much shorter. It's a no-brainer really, QUinns got everything you need and then some.
dunn left when the bucs couldn't match the load of dough the falcons gave him and neal was gone about 3 years before gruden got here...at least 3.
The 2005 D has nothing on the 99 D, except for league rankings in regards to yards given up.

That's the question. Plenty of teams have won SB's with D's not as good as our 1999 defense so when you talk about dynastic capability that team was certainly capable of being dynastic as much as 1999 or 1997 for that matter. All three years failed becuase the offenses couldn't deliver consistently or when it counted.

The Bucs have the makings of beefing up the line, should draft another O-lineman, and let the Caddy run behind it. It is a start anyway. Plus, better O-line means more time in the pocket, and an accurate QB with some time can make things happen...Basic 101.
