    He hasn’t started even running yet meanwhile his competition has been running gassers at OTA’s, and now mandatory camp. Good luck catching up Dot. I hope someone young can earn the R.T. job.

    We got “someone young” and let Donald Penn go to Oakland and more Pro Bowls. I hope Dotson has his first Pro Bowl year, myself, with “someone young” ready to step in if there is an injury.

    Unfortunately we don’t have an Offensive Line Coach who is as good as Buckner is on the Defensive side. We have Warhop and we have had a weak OL every year we have had him. Now, after Koetter announced that Benenoch would concentrate on RT only and Cappa would learn RT. Cappa was able to hold his own in the Senior Bowl at Tackle against the best DEs from the top teams in the country. So what has Warhop done? He has a retired All Pro to come in and teach Cappa to play Center, which is nuts! We have Smith who we got from Green Bay after he started the entire year at Center and when Marpet got hurt Smith did a good job taking over Center for him. And if Smith went down Marpet could move right back to Center. Likely Warhop didn’t watch the Senior Bowl and does not know that with training Cappa could ably backup Dotson if at 32 he has another injury.
    We need to get an OL Coach with Buckner type expertise!!!

    We can’t even say Buckner expertise since we haven’t seen what he can do with our defensive line yet. Warhop coached Alex Mack and Joe Thomas in Cleveland before coming to Tampa that basically blew up it’s offensive line and started from scratch. Oniel Cousins and Anthony Collins were starters on our offensive line. We haven’t had much talent here to begin with.
