Hah, thanks.

As good as a compliment as you'll ever receive online... and you're welcome

I've always found it to be interesting to me as to who really knows football here as opposed to those who watch Sports Center or NFL Network and then come in here to regurgitate the same poo.

There are only a handful in this forum that really know what they're talking about. The rest are trolls and regurgitaters. I tend to think that if u had to take a Panthers IQ test or even a football IQ test to be a member here it'd be a better place. But I'm sure Zod would also have to shut the site down because of the lack of membership at that point. Smh

Harbaugh did pretty well if you ask me.

Garbage is in the 10% of college coaches that succeed early. Most don't.

I do think the Bucs improved their team...just not enough.

I am also one who really thinks that Josh Freeman is massively over rated.

Harbaugh played in the NFL for years and coached in the NFL as well before coaching as a head coach in college. Schiano played college ball and was a defensive assistant coach in Chicago for a few years before going into the college ranks.

Their understanding of the pro game is likely different but of course they both could be successful. Harbaugh just has tons more experience in the NFL at all levels.

Yeah, I don't think Freeman is very good either. I was just pointing out that discounting coaches because they came from a college team may not be the best stance to take.

the bucs made some huge moves to better their team. they will definitely be tougher to beat. i still think we are going to beat the crap out of them though.

Agreed. But I do think Schiano will struggle. His offensive scheme in college was strictly a ground and pound style. I think he will struggle to score against high powered offenses like Carolina, Atlanta, and NO in his first year.

You very well could be correct. His offence isn't a traditional ground and pound though, he's one of the best ground attack schemers in the game imo.

But, the college game and the pro game are very different.

Harbaugh ran a pro style offense at Sranford. Schianno's offense is not a pro style offense.

Could make the transition more difficult.. but only time will tell.

Lol... You think his offense will struggle to score?

Let's see here: without even looking at the roster, I'm calling BS!

You had better have some respect for the Bucs this year, because if you don't, they will earn it from you.

Not saying that We can't beat them, just saying don't be a blind homer.

I liked Tampas first two picks. Barron is gonna be a great safety and the RB from Boise reminds me of JStew

the bucs will probably have a season like we did last year.

freeman has been told to start over with a blank slate, run game isn't proven with blount being bad last year and doug martin coming in... mike williams has to get out of his sophomore slump, vincent jackson hasn't proved that he isn't in the game just for the money, the cornerback position is a big question mark (barber is old/regressing, talib always possibly getting arrested, wright not being good), the LBs aren't a strength, and the DL is incredibly young and injury-prone. the OL should be good if davin joseph returns to form (do not bring up that he went to the pro bowl - he sucked last year).

oh yeah, and the have a new coaching staff which usually means lots of bumps in the road.

not seeing how they become a playoff contender unless they have an easy schedule again like they did in 2010.
