    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    The notion that bad fits can be "worked with" to make them good fits is just as much bullshit as talk of "we like this roster" and we're trying to win this year. Feel free to continue to not understand the requirements of the defense and that all players do not fit all defenses.

    Dolphins now have 2 FitzMagics

    You mean the Bucs or Dolphins? 'Phins are playing for next year's #1 already. About to trade Robert Quinn to Dallas although I have no idea how good or bad Quinn was last season.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    If that were the case he'd still be a Giant. The issue isn't whether he'd be terrible. The issue is whether a marginalized 4-3 DE who now has coverage responsibilities, in addition to rushing the QB or 5 technique (engaging the OT to control him and allow the LBers to make plays) when that is not this particular players forte and paying him $15mil plus per year to do so is worth it. Everyone sees the sacks of last year as the reason to keep him. In this defense he is unlikely to approach that production plus he could be a liability in other areas.

    Bucs Sign OLB Barrett

    Brice is probably 50-50 at best to make the roster unless he received guaranteed money.

    Bucs Sign Safety Kentrell Brice

    Bowels knows what he's going to run. He probably already knows who fits (and where) and who doesn't fit at all or is marginalized. What the staff tells the fans is something for the fans to eat up such as "we like this roster and will gear the scheme(s) to the roster. Bullshit. They will do what they've always done. Base 3-4 front with McCoy, Vea (DTs) and JPP/Nassib (5tech); Barrett/Nassib (OLB/DE scrimmage), Minter SSiLB, David WiLB, Bucannon hybrid 2-4 Vea and McCoy 3techs, Barrett/Nassib OLB scrimmage, Minter SSiLB, David WiLB, Bucannon hybrid Also a 3-3-5 which is more similar to the 2-4 with Bucannon playing a 3rd Safety. The last two options are what Bowles will likely use the most (70% or more)

    Schefty said the plan is to be in a position to draft Tua which means close enough to the top that they can move up if they aren't at #1 themselves.

    Your history suggests pretty strongly of different motives.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    Unfortunately he would and will limit options for Bowles defense because of the lack of coverage skills required for the position he will play in Bowles defense. This combined with the price tag make him a poor fit for the Bucs. Football is all about fits and matchups.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    Right now, it makes little sense to be actively trying to move McCoy and not, at the very least, be doing the same with JPP. JPP takes up more of the cap and fits the defense the Bucs will run poorly while McCoy fits it perfectly. The Bucs have signed an Edge OLB in Barrett and paying him enough to not have him on the roster as a backup. At this juncture, I think Devin White is the Bucs choice unless Josh Allen falls to them.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    No you're not. Your pushing to put McCoy in the same situation Suh is in at the moment.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    In a general sense, I wouldn't sign Justin Houston. He may still be an effective player but he also may not and I just don't think the Bucs are a year away from contending. The Bucs also just signed Shaq Barrett who's likely to start and is being paid too much to back anyone up. If Houston were signed they'd have two players who play the same position and another who's effectiveness will be significantly affected in JPP who's being paid $15mil per year to be so. I'd bet the Bucs are currently gauging trade value for both McCoy and JPP at the moment. If their replacement is drafted (unlikely that high in JPPs case), then they can be traded.

    Problem for Montez Sweat???

    If true he'd be off my board but I don't have a board to be off.

    You realize there's more to this story than the player value with tfree.

    Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, or Justin Houston

    McCoy fits this defense better. It would make more sense to let go of JPP and sign Houston.

    Non Bucs news

    Saints Center Max Unger has apparently retired suddenly. Could be big blow to them as their ground game got going when he got there.
  16. I'd have preferred the QB over anyone else OSU

    Bruce Arians Needs to Help his GM

    He needs his ass kicked that's for sure.

    Where are you reading that? He just redid his deal and his '19 cap hit is $22.7mil. '20 is $15.9mil.

    Most players with or without heart will choose money.

    Bucs Sign OLB Barrett

    True. He's probably a 5 tech in a true 3-4.
  21. Gulf Shore Steve

    Bucs Sign OLB Barrett

    He was a backup in Denver because they had Bradley Chubb. Joe Dirt and Jack Cichy are ILB and don't even play the same position as Barrett. In the Bucs new scheme Lavonte David doesn't play the same position as Barrett. The players who play the same position are JPP, Nassib, Gholston and Spence.
  22. Gulf Shore Steve

    Bucs Sign OLB Barrett

    1. He may not be a backup. 2. He's an OLB edge rusher. Brown is an ILB.

    Pretty good signing.
