Mike Lombardi is filling space in the off season.  His plan is to keep pushing out bs until camp opens.  Then he will offer football articles.  In the interim - the Glazer's plan appears to be a very well kept secret.

< 30 days to training camp.

Then, I hope we will have something to really talk about...

GT - I too, see a plan.   I'm patient and going to enjoy watching it develop.

What NFL franchise tells the fans what their actual 'plan' is?...   Some of you guys are living in Neverland.

Over the 5 years that the NFL.com talked about there was no plan. You can start to see a plan with the termination of GruAllen, the massive purge of vets and the drafting of Freeman. Now you look like you've got a plan but prior to that not spending cash was a product of bad drafting and bad planning.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

The announced plan was to build through the draft.

Then tried to give up picks and players for a qb

Then did give up picks for a TE - that while likely better than what was on the roster was far from a need

Then tried to sign (purportedly) two FAs - a LB and a DT but didn't get it done.

Then signed a FA qb - and drafted a qb in the first round - with 4 qbs under contract

So that crystal clear plan is what again?

Oh yea, declared their deserving players would be extended - like AB, Penn and Ruud...

So - how about printing the crystal clear plan...

Cutler is 26 and Winslow 25. That's the same age or younger than Gaines Adams. If the Bucs' plan is to be a Super Bowl contender by 2012, both would still be in their primes.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

I think the plan is to build through youth and primarily from the draft.

Want to see the model for the plan?  Look at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tomlin and Morris are best buds.  Tomlin spoke about being "Physical and Violent" when he took over the Steelers.

Check Morris' words (and Dominik's) and you'll see the similarities.

Cutler was targeted but lost

Winslow was obtained and at a great cost - and we will wonder about his knees every game

HM - Pittsburgh is a neat pick to emulate.  Missed them trading and giving up picks for players this offseason.  And the will be letting to  Pro Bowl TE - not trading for one - for cap reasons.

The Bucs basically gave up a second for him (K2).  Totally worth it, IMO.  It is a risk, but there is risk in ANYTHING in this league.

Hence the use of the word "plan" and not "results".

Winslow was obtained and at a great cost - and we will wonder about his knees every game
A late 2nd round pick? As for his health, every move in the NFL has risk. Only two teams in the entire NFL considered Drew Brees in 2006 because he was recovering from injury. The Saints gambled and it paid off. If you won't make a move unless it is a "sure" thing, you'll be waiting a long time. You can't win of you don't play.

So that crystal clear plan is what again?

really?  you sound like a jilted schoolgirl.  the plan IS to build through the draft.  most every team in the league has that plan.  but to completely avoid an upgrade to the team because you have your blinders on and are set in stone is asinine.  i love it how because some fans dont like the direction the owners have set that they expect the impossible.  they want to know the exact details of what is going on at OBP and for heaven's sake it better not deviate.

the team drafted a QB for the future, and surrounded him with options for the present.  the team has acquired a couple of hard nosed runners to pound the ball, building off the previous regimes work.  the team did made a play for a couple of FA's, neither of which are make or break.  we signed a dynamic TE, who realistically will be used as more of a receiver.  we added pieces to our DL through the draft.  and im pretty sure we will extend ruud.

seriously, while i dont reside at OBP, ask me a realistic question about the team's plan and i can probably give you a good answer.

Believe the overall plan is to get to the super bowl. All teams supposedly aspire to do that.

The road to get there may or may not be the same for each team.

However, based on some of the comments in this thread, would someone be kind enough to send me a copy of  the plan from any of the other 31 teams that you have seen.
Even with my heavy reading of this and many national sites, I have yet to see one in my 70+ years of following the NFL.

Some of you are just unreal. Sarcasm just doesn't cover that fact that there is no such published plan by ANY team in the NFL and never has been.  Doubt there ever will be. But you can continue with your snide remarks if it will make you feel better.

Good article...

Plans take time to develop...


What I can't understand is the fans that expect instant results... Unrealistic at best.



No No No,,,,,,Win now.  That's the NFL.  Nobody wanted to give Gruden time to retool.  They wanted wins.
