  1. Licht needs to stop looking in the past to build the roster of the future at swing tackle. This can be one of the most important decisions of the off-season when it gets to Nov-Dec. Even Wells wasn’t sure he was making the roster if he needed that guarantee.

  2. Teams are not going to be able to cover all the weapons on the Bucs (again), so I suppose we are going see defenses going after Brady with great guns all 17 regular season games (again).
