Pieces in place similar to SB champ Bucs?

Super slow NFL period here so here's a lame topic.  I was listening to Warren Sapp and was thinking that Warren and Derrick Brooks were the heart of that defense that won them a SB ring.  Perhaps we do too with Keek and Star?  Granted Star is a long way from being a Sapp but Keek isn't far from being a Brooks.  They won with Brad Johnson as their QB and I certainly would rate Cam over Johnson.  

 

Anyways we're a long way off from that Bucs team (or are we?) but perhaps Gettleman knows what he's doing in building a championship team after all...

Kiffin is a HoF DC and that was a different time when they didn't enforce the 5 yard rule.

We'll have the best D in our division and likely by a lot.

We can't upgrade everything in one year. 8+ years of drafting a bunch of linebackers and running backs high in the draft will cripple you. However, if we could get a couple more good defensive pieces this defense could be scary good. Perhaps, on par with Carolina's D with Pep, Ruck, Buck, and Jenkins or TB's SB Defense. I am usually opposed to bringing in big name veterans that want alot of money, but how much better would our secondary be for a couple years with Charles Woodson? Both for the actual production and the veteran leadership/teaching he could do with the young guys? Maybe that would help us actually compete for the divison title? it won't happen, but I can wish.

I haven't seen you on a kick like this since your McClain prediction.

 

Caldwell won a Superbowl in Indy.  He sucks.  Shula has one thing going for him....Cam Newton entering year 3.  He could be called a mad scientist and guru with decent odds this year.  Talent is a huge factor in coaching success...

I don't rarely agree with your posts cause they're so negative but I agree having an amazing franchise qb whose been putting teams on his back since he's been playing is gonna make Shula look very good

I didn't say we should...

 

But to say we are close to what that team was....that featured a HOFer or soon to be on every level of that D is a bit much.  Those are some BIG pieces.

I'm all aboard the Woodson wagon and his age is exactly one of the reasons why.

Bring in a guy for a team that could use some veteran leadership, some experience deep in the postseason. His age means he isn't going to get a long term commitment so for those of you who swear josh thomas is going to be somebody can still learn that he either will or wont be without risking finding out the hard way that he may not be.

This doesn't even mention the central point that he'd instantly be the best defender we had in the defensive backfield at any postion we stuck him at and would allow us to place him at whichever position didn't have anybody step up prior to the season.
