Offense has plenty of young talent
With an influx of young and exciting players, Tampa Bay has the makings of an exciting offense, writes Len Pasquarelli in his observations from Bucs camp.
Indeed, there is plenty of justification for the optimism surrounding the Bucs' offense in 2006. It has, at least for much of the team's run of success under Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, been more of a stepsister unit, just trying to stay out of the way and not lose games as the Tampa Bay defense dominated opponents. There is a suspicion in some quarters that the defense, which has been so good for so long now under coordinator Monte Kiffin, could slip a bit this season because of age. We don't know that we buy into the theory yet. It's a whole lot easier, though, to buy into the offense as potentially being the best one the Bucs have assembled in many years.
