They are my favorite team, I expect them to outdo what the analysts are predicting out of them.

Raheem brings a great energy and the players seem to be liking him more then Gruden.

Also, the offense feels drastically improved and a run first attack with deep aerial passing will be nice, just kinda wishing Freeman would get more reps over Leftwich as Luke is already the starter at the moment.

I look for our defense to be better then people expect, especially with as good of a co-ordinator that Jim Bates is... the linebackers will be faster and more aggressive then any previous Tampa linebacking core. The DEs work the main pressure on D in Bates scheme, the DTs line up over the guards and never over the center (meaning if the center attempts to double a DT, it leaves Ruud wide open to blitz through the middle.)

Sabby Piscitelli will also open some eyes, my biggest question so far is will Ronde Barber do alright in a man to man defense?...

Definatley excited though... if you guys have any questions about them, let me know... I have insider access on pewterreport.com and I know the ins and outs of whats going on.

I really liked what I saw from Raheem on espn show that followed him around. He is loose and that should work for a while.

Who will QB them though? The defense should be solid again but unless they can pound it and take alot of pressure off the QB, I think they will be around a .500 team

GMEN!!! Love Jermaine Phillips tho

Right now Luke McCown is going into training camp as the starter as he was more consistent in OTAs over Leftwich. Byron had a slow wind up and release (leading to alot of sacks)... had inconsistent accuracy on deep passes compared to Luke and Tampa is a aerial pass attack now. Leftwich also is way less mobile.

Freeman looked pretty good so far and hasen't really had any negatives, so he's pushing his way into the #2 spot if he doesn't start. OTAs will basically decide who starts, that mixed with pre-season games.

The defense actually feels improved to me... people might think thats crazy but last season we didn't allow a 100 yard rusher for awhile. Also, we only gave up 1 100 yard rusher and 1 rushing touchdown through the first 12 weeks (both in the same game against the Chiefs)... The Bucs are using a zone blocking oline this year, and we have a 4 set of halfbacks once Cadillac is healthy. Earnest Graham is the starter, yet Derrick Ward will get most of the reps. Clifton Smith is our swing back for screens and quick passes (bet you seen what he did as a returner last season)...

Jermaine "Flip" Phillips looks as if he has made a solid transition to OLB this year. Phillips is alot faster then Brooks was last year, and has quicker reaction to get to the ball. Not to mention, he's a harder hitter and tackles better.

I have a madden obsession with Sabby P. Hes a monster. I cant really comment much on the bucs as I dont follow them much in the NFL but winslow and stevens should provide some nice pro sets for the Bucs.

they have a good squad of backs both veteran and youth. Barber converting from cover 2 scheme to man should be interesting to watch. QB will be a ineresting position to watch as they have no REAL front runner. Leftwich looked good last year in PITT maybe he can recapture his former self from Marshal?
