I was reading a article on Buccaneers.com, looking for something to write about. This special article I was reading was about some problems, or even questions, about training camp, or the off-season. Then I thought, "Woohoo, I have an idea!". Okay, so there wasn't that much expression in it, but I was glad I had found a good idea to write about. What I will be doing is listing some questions that they ask, write down the answers that they use, and then write about what I think of that situation or question.
Are you ready? No, oh, I can wait. Now? Yes! I can begin!
Q: What is it going to take to get the roster down to 80 players by the time training camp starts?
I think, to be able to get that huge roster down to 80, they are going to have to cut some players. I looked at their roster, and, no offense, but saw some worthless players. I think they should start by cutting the players that are fifth, or in some cases, sixth string players. There are not that many occasions where a lot of players get injured like that, and even if they do, usually it isn't that serious of an injury. They have FIVE quarterbacks on their roster. It might just be me, but they do not need that much. If I can say so myself, they only used one of them last season. The only two I think they really need is Jeff Garcia and Chris Simms. Believe me?
Q: How will the rookies fare in their first training camp as Buccaneers?
My thoughts...hmm...I think they will be pretty good. They didn't have too many draft picks, so even then... Aqib Talib was a good draft pick, who I think will help besides Ronde Barber, even though Barber is getting older.
The draft picks:
- Aqib Talib
- Dexter Jackson
- Jeremy Zuttah
- Dre Moore
- Josh Johnson
- Geno Hayes
- Cory Boyd
I don't know about Josh Johnson, though, because of all of the quarterbacks in front of him, I don't think he will be able to play that much. They will definitely let him in on training camp. Cory Boyd will probably be a third string to Earnest Graham, Warrick Dunn, and maybe even Caddilac Williams. I think it will go well.
