      What if the Bucs traded… September 28, 2015 Gil Arcia  trade_zpsjn00pnpv.jpgThere are so many overreactions following a Bucs loss each week it’s hard to keep up with all of them. Everyone wants the coach fired. Everyone wants other players and just say “Hey they should get this guy” like it is so easy. Not one person ever mentions a trade. No, trading quarterback Mike Glennon doesn’t count. People are concerned with the depth on the team at nearly every position yet they want to trade away the one position where there is perhaps a solid backup. Not to mention won’t get much of anything in return.If you want immediate impact, I’m talking bigger. I’m talking about a player or players that will demand a couple more in return with one shot. I’m talking about trading a Gerald McCoy or a Lavonte David. Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. It’s absurd as hell. But the Bucs haven’t won much since both have been on the team together — a record of 14-37 since David’s 2012 rookie season. Plus, David was an All-Pro under the previous staff’s scheme and McCoy was turned into a Pro Bowler under the previous staff as well.Football is the ultimate team game. Many have said there aren’t enough role players on Tampa Bay’s roster. You can not disagree with any of that. So how do you get immediate impact? You trade a player of that caliber. You trade a McCoy or a David and get multiple pieces back in return who are playmakers to some level.Before you go jumping off the Skyway, think about how else you would bring in some immediate help. Because unless you trade a top tier guy, you’re not getting anything remotely close to what you need.The Buccaneers are building through the draft. This was going to be a season featuring lots of growing pains. With a rookie quarterback, rookie linemen, rookie linebacker and some other newcomers sprinkled in, there was no way to realistically expect the Bucs to run the table this season.Yes, this is a bad football team at the moment and things aren’t going to get better quickly. So until they do, we all have to be patient.link

      We don’t need immediate help. We need time to develop and stability.

      This sounds like a good idea. I’d trade Gerald McCoy for a 1st rounder and Lavonte for a 1st rounder. I’d also trade Vincent Jackson for a 2nd rounder. I’d trade Mike Evans for a 1st rounder. I’d trade Jameis Winston for a 1st rounder and Mike Glennon for a 2nd rounder. I’d have 5 1st rounders, 3 2nd rounders. I’d wait until the draft comes, save my game before hand. Let the draft play out and figure out which players are the best and then I would reload my game and draft all the best players.

      This is the best way.Mark or Scott, can you ask Licht if he does the Konami code before he starts the draft? Maybe we'll get an extra third rounder or something.

      Lovie had better not be allowed to trade off any main players. Because he will be gone by the end of the season anyway.IF anyone trades either one of them off, it had better be the new management.

      1 – I team so devoid of talent does not trade away it’s only few good players.2 - draft picks are in the hands of this franchise aren't worth much at all given our long recent history.

      I misread this to be... David is a Jag right now, as in we just traded him to Jacksonville. I was about ready to fry some eggs with my blood pressure just now.

      My issue is this. We ARE rebuilding.. That means we will suck this year, draft on Defense next year.. Suck the year after.. Then (3 years from now) start to show some skills with the offensive players we have drafted the last 2 years and begin to have the defense coming around. McCoy and David may be long in the tooth by then.

      Another irrational fan mad about the loss. Since we’re 1-2 like half the NFL I guess that means we should trade our best player lol

      Every player in the league is available if the price is right.  Just for the sake of conversation let's look at McCoy.  We have Melton behind him and Melton is a good player.  McCoy has only played 16 games twice in 5 years and is hurt right now, but when healthy he might be the best DT in the league and is paid like it.So the question becomes what would we need to get back in trade that would improve the overall team more than the downgrade from McCoy to Melton would hurt us.What would you want back in a trade for McCoy?

      No players, just draft picks. For any trade.

      Two first round (top ten picks), two seconds, and a porn-style date with Giselle.
