Bucs Pegged For Cellar At 5-11September 1st, 2014
The fun folks at BSPN are at it again with their spread sheets and brilliant analysis in ESPN The Magazine.
Joe actually gets and reads this publication sometimes (for some reason it arrives at Joe’s house free). It’s amazing the data these people pump out. Joe was amazed months ago by a detailed look at why Blake Bortles would be a successful NFL quarterback because of his hometown zip code.
Their NFC South predictions are in, and the Bucs are living in the rectum of their division with a projected 5-11 record. They’re also picked to lose Sunday to the Panthers 28-14.

Joe’s season prediction will be out tomorrow, but Joe must say 5-11 is harsh. These Bucs are better than that. Don’t they consult with Herm Edwards?
But are they better than anyone else in their division? That’s a good question.
Joe can’t believe all the folks who assume Carolina will be a garbage team using the logic they lost key receivers.
If Bucs fans had Carolina’s suffocating defense returning, along with a franchise quarterback, they’d pounding their chests and talking playoffs. Rightfully so.
