    I know Zemaitis personally from covering Penn State football for the Centre Daily Times. From what I got to know about him from one-on-one interviews, he plays and talks like a lunatic - in a good way - and has an enormous chip on his shoulder for some reason. He's a tremendous leader in the locker room. I think he'll be great after Barber and Kelly move on.

    Funny you put Sammy Davis on that list, who is the worst cornerback in the league.

    Yeah, I'd like to echo Bucsfan's feelings about the young personnel they brought in, especially Cato June and Gaines Adams. I think Alan Zemaitis is going to be a really good player as well, though that's up for debate.

    Barber, Kelly, Rice, Brooks, Carter, and Spires are all old. But most of them have potential startes behind them...


    These are all the defensive players brought in by Tampa:

    Gaines Adams - Rices eventual replacement. Only 23 years old.

    Quincy Black - Played the same position as Urlacher in college. Brought in to hopefully be Brooks replacement. Only 22 years old.

    Kevin Carter - Brought in to play UT for a year or two, or until we find a young player to fill that roll. 33 years old.

    Tanard Jackson - Considered by most to be a steal in the 4th round. He could compete for a starting spot with Phillips at SS. Only 21 years old.

    Sabby Piscitelli - Could possibly compete for a starting spot. Hopefully will be a starter if Allen has another sub-par year. Only 23 years old.

    Greg Peterson - May be the eventual replacement at UT or LDE. He probably won't make the team this year though. Only 22 years old.

    Cato June - Our biggest pick-up in FA! A perfect fit for the Tampa-2 being brought over from Dungy's defense. Should start at WLB. Only 27 years old.

    Ryan Sims - Brought over as a project. But with Coyer and Kiffin, Sims should be revived to perform as well as he was supposed to being a former first round pick. Could compete with Hovan at NT. Only 26 years old.

    Sammy Davis - A young CB brought in for depth. Should be NB or even LCB when Barber and Kelly are gone. Only 26 years old.

    Adam Hayward - Brought in for depth. He should make the roster, but might not. He should be able to back up any position at LB with his size and speed. Only 22 years old.


    And don't forget Zemaitis and P-Buc at corner. Both are decent and young. Z is 24 and P-Buc is 26.
    We also have Barrett Ruud stepping in at MLB. He was a second round pick and performed well last year when Quarles was hurt. He should be a stud this year. And Nece has been a starter for us in the past. He provides experienced depth at the LB position.


    The only two potential problems are young starters at UT and LDE. But they may be on the roster already:

    Greg Peterson
    Jovan Haye
    Julian Jenkins
    And don't forget Ellis Wyms. He may show that he can play a full season effectively...

    Most of the playmakers on that defense is over the age of 31.

    I think they need to get some new defensive personnel. What used to make the Bucs good will be the death of them now.

    I think Tampa will do good because of Garcia, he's a warrior and is a competitor. Tampa still has a good team they just need to oline to step up and let Caddy do his thing.

    I agree with BucsFan and Anonymous... I think the Saints win the division, Carolina sneaks into the playoffs, Atlanta finishes last and Tampa surprises a lot of people. I nearly placed the Bucs in the postseason.

    You think the Saints can win 13 games with that defense?... Their offense is the ****, but their defense is the worst in the division. It doesn't matter if you score 30 pts a game if you give up 31...

    If the Panthers' offense shows up this season, I could see them winning 10.

    I think the Bucs will surprise a lot of people this season. Don't be surprised to see 9-7 or maybe even 10-6...

    I agree with the Falcons 3 wins. Even if Vick plays they're probably still the worst team in the division... But not by much.

    I'm thinking this:

    Saints - 11-5
    Panthers - 10-6
    Bucs - 9-7
    Falcons - 5-11

    Alright

    Saints - 13-3
    Panthers - 10-6
    Bucs - 6-10
    Falcons - 3-13

    But if Vick isn't suspended, I may switch the Falcons with the Bucs
