    Just an observation: Does it rub anyone else the wrong way when you see Akeem Spence jawing laughing and grinning in the middle of a serious beat-down. If you had just turned on the game, you’d have thought the score was reversed. Gotta wonder where the kids head is at. Some of us are talking about the missing “attitude”. This kid needs a kick in the rear. How about it Hardy? He’s not one of your LB’s, but could you possibly reach across the isle this week?

      Can he play QB for us?

    I am watching the Steelers dominate Charlotte and it appears to me even if McCoy were playing our next game we will continue to be the bumbling Bucs. We would have been a lot better at this point if we had made better draft decisions this year. I pointed out those deficiencies at the time, and we will continue to pay for it until we do better drafts.

    If Licht and the staff had only listened to Owlykat the mighty Bucs would be 3-0 with Tim Tebo(w) at QB and “Chase” Daniels at guard. Or would it be better with Tebo(w) at guard? Right about the drafting errors; but let’s hold off on this class for a year or two before judging. It’s the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 drafts and questionable FA signings that have limited the talent level. Plus, we get to see Bennett, Blount and Talib shine with little in return.

    Still no tee shirt Mark.

    Scubog is absolutely right…again. This team hasn’t had any depth for years…one sign of poor drafting year after year. If that continues for the next four years, then I’ll blame the coach and GM. Couple that with the loss of ANY first team player and the Bucs are in big trouble. The fact remains though, the Bucs MUST draft a potential franchise QB in the next draft…one who can make up for many of the shortcomings on this team!
