    It was a purposefully badly done 'your mum' joke in response to you calling the TBBBB crap, and I really didn't think its light heartedness would escape you especially since I even included some football comments in the post too, which were in fact agreeing with and building on a post you made yourself.
    I don't care about the joke. But at least it got this sort of stuff out in the air for all of the new posters (and people who may be reading this but haven't posted yet) who come to the boards this time of year.

    The rubbish comment wasn't aimed specifically at you either. More of a generalisation of past posters.

    I'm actually quite happy with the influx of Bucs posters here at the moment. Usually we don't get many lengthy discussions around here so it's nice to have some new people who actually contribute for a change.

        I dont really think the Bucs need to take Berry, remember, this draft is loaded with Safety Talent and we already have a playmaking FS in Tanard Jackson, unless RAH thinks he can move to the SS position. Berry is a FS and wouldn't produce at the SS positon.

        In the end, Detroit will only take a DT if its Suh, other than that, they might look into trading down (seattle, who may want to jump Washington for Clausen) or taking Okung. That is is St. Louis takes Suh, but i can see Clausen being the #1 overall pick, which leaves the Bucs with McCoy, who i'd be more than satisfied with.

        For the SS positon, I really like guys like Larry Assante and Major Wright in the middle rounds and maybe Chad Jones in the 2nd/3rd.

        What do you think if the Bucs took Larry Assante from Nebraska? I think he might be one of the most underrated SS prospects in this draft.

          The TBBBB is crap. You have to be all paranoid when you post because if you make the slightest mistake (OMG i just said the word "Ndamukong Suh" in team discussion!!), the super-serious mods come to abuse their power while the veteran posters watch in a circle jerk.

          I have an account on there from '02 and must have been suspended around 10 times, each time more rediculous than the last.
          save Freeman

            Try reading the rules to the forum. They're quite specific and easy to understand.

            But, enough of this debate about the TBBBB. If you don't like it, fine. There are those of us who enjoy the atmosphere there. None of that should preclude either party from taking part in discussions here, so who the heck cares about anyone's opinion of another board?

                Berry is a ton of hype. He's small and the talk of him being the next Ed Reed is just that, talk. he completely disappeared in the Vtech-Tenn beating in which Tenn gave up 37 and Berry was nowhere to be found.

                The rampa-2 doesn't need two great safeties. In years past the Bucs would draft a bigger slower CB and turn him into a S (TJ, Dwight Smith, Dexter Jackson< Damien Robinson)... we don't need to spend a high pick on a guy that disappears when needed most or plays a position that is not of highest importance.

                The Bucs need a UT, plain and simple.

                Suh
                McCoy
                Price
                Houston
                Alualu

                are the guys that fit the bill, if Suh is gone, I say we trade down... I'm completely sold on McCoy... or Suh for that matter, he struggled against bigger OGs all season long (see games vs Texas Tech and Arizona), I really like Brian Price in the mid first if we can trade down there to pick him. Lamarr Houston had as good a bowl game as any DT in the country... Alualu played DE in the 3-4 but he could project to a UT and be a force... both shouldn't be picked umtil round 2 at the earliest.

                  This recent trend with mocks in which the Bucs pass on Gerald McCoy for Eric Berry is driving me nuts.

                      Is there anything wrong with drafting McClain this high? Considering the secondary for the bucs was top 10 pick up McClain to stop run? I could see Okung here as well

                        McClain would only make sense if Barrett Ruud is moved this off-season, which would have to be done through a trade, since he'll be a RFA unless a new CBA is reached.

                        As for Okung, I wouldn't whine about it. The Bucs could use some offensive line help, though any tackle they draft would likely end up playing RT, since that's the position we need to upgrade. It's hardly the most pressing need the Bucs have, though.

                        Derrick Morgan could also be the choice, since the Bucs desperately need some talent on the defensive line. If both Suh and McCoy are gone, don't be surprised if the Bucs either select Morgan at 3 or decide to trade down a bit and see if they can select him there while acquiring an extra pick or two.

                        Just remember: The Buccaneers MUST upgrade the defensive tackle position in some way this off-season. Hovan and Sims on the interior of our line for another season just isn't going to cut it. We need a young guy like Suh, McCoy, Price, Alualu or Atkins (my top 5 choices, in that order) who can collapse the pocket and help bring the line back to the form we haven't seen since Warren Sapp left.

                          Berry over McCoy is stupid. If you get a chance at a penetrating UT like McCoy you have to take him. Especially if it is ahead of a safety, albeit a very good one.

                            And let's not forget that the safety class is very deep, while there are only a few defensive tackles in this draft who fit the kind of guy the Bucs are looking for.

                              Looks like D. Stuckey is high on their list and that he would have to be taken with one of our 2nd round picks, according to pewter report.... More and more I am thinking Berry is not a realistic pick.. Especially with questions regarding Penn..

                                The whole Penn situation will be sorted soon.

                                For all we know Okung, McCoy, Berry and McClain could all be legitimate picks depending on who is available and whether Ruud and Penn leave/stay.
