Over And Under On The Bucs

August 22nd, 2010

As you wake on this cloudy Sunday morning in the Tampa Bay area, preparing to watch the Bucs on tape-delay on WFLA-TV Channel 8, consider how many games the Bucs might win.

Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com has. You may be surprised to learn what he foresees with the Bucs in this NBCSports.com video.

    Florio is a a$$ clown who for some reason hates the Bucs…. that site has gone down hill in quality since NBC took over……

    Screw Florio and the lil boy Rosenthal

  2. goodfellajay Says:

    wow hes sooo funny…and smart all he did is said the standings will be the same as last year..that never happens in the NFC south…so you heard here first hes wrong

  3. Michael Weber Says:

    For those of you who don’t feel like losing the brain cells I just did while watching that… Florio doesn’t think the Bucs will win 7 games combined the next 3 years combined. LOL

    BTW, I’m not sure which was more painful the “host” of that segment or Florio himself as some sort of TV guy/Blogger hybrid. Why those guys were playing dress up is beyond me.

    He’s about right.

  5. Gatorbuc15 Says:

    What the hell was that about!? Does Florio have a beef of some kind with the Bucs? I know he’s supposed to be an expert, but only 7 wins combined over the next 3 years!?

    Sorry jackass, but I’m gonna have to disagree with ya on that one.


    “The falcons won’t be competitive for the next 5 years” – Mike Florio during the offseason in which Atlanta drafted Matt Ryan and ended up making the playoffs.

    I’d rather watch Bert and Ernie make their over/under predictions…

    Its really popular to hate on the Bucs.I can’t understand why after only one down year that every so called expert is predicting Armageddon.Lets see if they man up and admit they were wrong when the Bucs start winning.Probably not,they’ll blame it on a weak division.

  8. Gary Says:

    7 wins in the next three seasons is egregious.

  9. thomas Says:

    I would say if Rah is still the head coach in three seasons: I’ll take under 7 wins for the next 3 seasons!!

  10. Hunter Says:

    Florio is an absolute idiot period. The fact is these guys don’t do their homework on any football teams under 500. He couldn’t name six starters on the bucs. The football media in general is ignorant about the sport they cover.

  11. AllMaddenMonkey Says:

    This is terrible, why do they even bother making this crappy low quality videos. Leave this crap for espn. PFT should just stick to being an rss feed for football news.

  12. JK Says:

    Why is everyone so upset? This new direction that the Glazers put us in has shown nothing but losing. I don’t understand how anyone can be that pumped up for this season. Until Morris shows how to lead, Florio could be right on with his prediction. I hope not. Go Bucs!

  13. SkookumSmitty Says:

    Cocaine is a HELLUVA drug!

  14. A to Z Says:

    It scares me how many of you guys are delusional about this team.

    Almost every national expert predicted that we’d suck last year, and lo and behold, we sucked…hard. Obviously, the consensus isn’t always right, but sometimes it is. And this year’s clear consensus (it’s not just Florio) is that we will once again be a horrific, rebuilding football team. There’s no use getting offended by it.

    Are we going to win more than seven games over the course of the next three seasons? Probably — but his sentiment is not completely outrageous. It’s just a little hyperbolic.

  15. Tampa Bob Says:

    That guy is an idiot. Even the worst teams win more than seven games in three years. The Bucs are gonna surprise people this season. The schedule isn’t too tough — they will win at least six this year.

  16. eric Says:

    How can a schedule be easy when we play the Steelers, Bengals, Saints and Cardinals and at Panthers in the first seven games?

    That looks damn tough to me!

  17. jaytek74 Says:

    I think the national media is about as credible as out nations politicians. That being said, I think that the Bucs will be about an 8-8 team this season. Who thought they would beat the Packers or Saints last season? They will steal a few games and be much more competative. Hopefully we will not be injury plagued because quality positional depth is an issue but the starters should compete in the division.

  18. ZeroExpectations Says:

    Well, I for one have zero expectations for this team. How could you?

    Look at it this way, maybe we can get a nice draft pick again next year, skip over the deep free agency period and continue building through the draft letting Mark trade 5th round picks to move up in tye 2nd round of the draft a couple of spots.

  19. Tristan Says:

    I see 6 or 7 wins, maybe more if the rookies gel.

  20. sean Says:

    drastically overlooking the talent level on the Bucs.

    The Bucs future basically hinges on Freeman. If Freeman is an absolute disaster at QB the Bucs still EASILY win 15 games the next 3 years

  21. Irony Says:

    If u aren’t excited about the team this year or any year you watch them, go find another team. End of story. I don’t think some of know what It is to be a fan of a team.
