Bucs Worse Than In 2011?July 20th, 2012
It’s no surprise that predictions for the 2012 Bucs are all over the map. That’s what happens when you have a talented roster that still has holes, combined with no firm read on the quality of coaching and playcalling.
NFL Network guru Mike Mayock fiercely defended his prediction of the Bucs making the playoffs. Warren Sapp says the Bucs won’t “contend.” Mercurial mouthpiece Adam Schein, of NFL Radio, says the Bucs will win nine or 10 games.
And now longtime CBS Sports NFL analyst Pete Prisco says the Bucs will finish 3-13.
Jimminy Christmas! That’s worse than last season’s 4-12 debacle. What man of sound mind could make such a prognostication? Perhaps Prisco thinks the Bucs should have stayed Yungry and retained Raheem Morris?
This reminds Joe of Peter King’s infamous 2-14 season prediction for the 2010 season, when the Bucs won 10 games.
Joe’s not ready to call the 2012 season record, but rest assured it will have the Bucs winning more than three games. If the Bucs actually win only three games, then Joe would have no problem with Team Glazer starting over again.
