Seven Sad Predictions From NFL.comAugust 29th, 2013
Prediction season continues to be unkind to the Bucs.
The four members of the Around The League crew at NFL.com previewed the NFC South and not one thinks the Bucs will have a winning record.
Buccaneers are not our sleeper team
This might be the deepest division in football. There’s only room for one surprise team, and our crew wasn’t buying Tampa Bay. An in-season quarterback change would not be a shock considering Josh Freeman’s erratic play; he’s also in a contract year. Three of us had the Buccaneers under .500, with Marc Sessler being the exception. Greg Schiano and company have gathered up enough talent through the draft and free agency to make our predictions of last place look bad come January.
In this NFL.com video, another three analysts, including Deion Sanders, don’t think the Bucs stack up in the division.
Jimminy Christmas! The Buccaneers added two true superstars in Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson, yet loads of NFL insiders don’t think they’ll improve.
There’s really no excuse, barring major injuries, for a lack of improvement in Year 2 of the New Schiano Order.
