TAMPA - After getting over the shock of watching three hours of basically bad football last night, we must now contemplate the first wave of 53 players on the Bucs roster.
I say first wave because there is no doubt the Bucs will have a magnifying glass on the waiver wire tomorrow night around 9pm at the deadline hoping there is at least one veteran offensive guard to bring in, and maybe an entire backup offensive line.
You get past the names like Penn, Nicks, Zuttah and Trueblood, might I say the Bucs are in a bit of a bind.
Outside Demar Dotson, there is no one, and I mean no one that is capable of filling in should an injury occur.
I don’t know what Coach Schiano said in his press conference today, but the look on his face last night pretty much told me what he’s thinking.
This team has little to no depth, except maybe at receiver.
The jury is still out there, though the lot is pretty equal in talent with the exception of Vincent Jackson, who is two cuts above the rest.
So as we enter the next 24 to 36 hours Bucs fans, hope for two things. No one gets hurt in practice, and plenty of names are available for the Bucs to bring in.
