The Bucs losing Tanard Jackson for the first four games of the season because of a violation of the NFL substance abuse policy is going to hurt big time. Its not that I don't think Will Allen can play, he certainly can. But the fact is he is not near the playmaker that Jackson is and with Jackson out there won't be much depth at safety at all. With Allens hit first mentality its highly likely that his physical play may cause him to miss some time during those games. Who do the Bucs turn to then? Just the fact that they have Jermaine Phillips practicing some back at safety shows you just how messy this could get for them.

I won't just Tanard but I do hope he gets the help he needs and comes back and finishes up the season strong. The kid has too much potential to let something like this derail his career.
