With so little going on in Buccaneers world that they have to resort to posting the five best moments from the 2006 season on their web site. And, really, with so many memorable and winning plays last year, it was a wonder they got through this article at all. But, really, the Bucs sucked last year and this was just a way for the team to look busy while they're getting ready for the combine where they can track players' 40 times down to the hundredth of a second because we all know it matters SO much. "You ran a 4.40? Pffft, I ran a 4.37, bitch. Now lick my sneakers clean!"

Well, I haven't really gotten going yet on blogging about the upcoming FA period primarily because news has been pretty much absent. Well, some of the Bucs' best hopes for improving key areas of the team have been dashed as some key FA targets were franchised. LB Lance Briggs, who was primary target number one for the Bucs to bring in as Brooks' heir apparent, was franchised by Chicago the other day. Also franchised were CB Asante Samuel (NE), and DE Justin Smith. Both were considered targets by the Bucs to improve the two other defensive areas.

Michael Vick to call his own plays.

Possible writing angles:
1) Vick will only call quarterback draws and run-options to the halfback.
2) Compare Peyton Manning's and Michael Vick's brains.
3) Compare Terry Bradshaw's and Michael Vick's brains.
4) Vick is too high to remember the play when he calls it in the huddle.
5) Fieldturf is not a good surface in which to draw plays. (not enough making fun of Vick's brain.)
6) Vick on cell phone to ex-coach Jim Mora in the huddle (has added benefit of making fun of Mora at the same time.)
7) Vick 's terminology is all drug references.
8) Soliloquy of a scared and nervous Vick in the huddle in week 1 calling his first play. Also has munchies.
