    we will win 6-8 games next year 7-9….

  2. topdoggie Says:

    Nobody has a clue how many we will win. As always injuries and luck will play a big roll.

  3. Gatorbuc15 Says:

    I say the Bucs can win 6-8 games this year IMO.

    I say they will win more than 0 and less than 16

    @d-money Says: LOL you are the first one to make a truely acurate prediction.

  7. Pete Says:

    I went through the schedule a while ago and came up with a 7-9 record. The Washington game I have as a loss, but that is my one “swing game” that I think can go either way (filed goal or less and may be decided in the last seconds).

    Before I did that, I expected a 5-6 win season. I think that is more realistic actually, but we’ll see. The first 3 games, I have us winning the opener, going to Carolina and winning there, and then coming home and losing to the Steelers.

  8. Jdouble Says:

    Injuries and luck make any prediction a complete guess, but I’d say less than 6 wins is not exceptable and more than 7 would be considered over achieving for such a young inexperienced team.

  9. BigMacAttack Says:

    I will make my pick after the game Sunday. We’ll know a lot more by then. Either everybody is going to be happy or a lot of gloomy predictions.

    Prediction 4-12. That is with a win at the end of the season from the Saints. (the Saints will clench a playoffs and are resting starters.)

  12. Trguy12 Says:

    7-9…….will that be enough to convince fans that the ownership is sending this team in the right direction? (quickly enough?)

  13. Pete Says:

    @ Trguy12 Yes, 7-9 would be plenty to show fans the Bucs are heading in the right direction. I think 5-6 wins will do it given the quality of play. If we get blown out by all the decent/good teams and we beat the likes of lions, rams and get a few division wins, then no. However, if we lose to the likes of the Steelers and Saints (and maybe win one) by 3 or 7 points and still get 5-6 wins then once again, yes.

    I’m optimistic. When I watch any team play, the first thing I observe, “is the team prepared?” From watching the Bucs starters (and backups for that matter) during the pre-season, my answer is yes. The starters actually out played all four teams (for the most part). Did we get blown out when our back ups played their back ups? No, that is a sign of good coaching/talent evaluation. We will lose some games because of the youth on our team, but the youth will also make some big plays along the way to help us win a few (or come close).

    Success will be determined in 2 seasons (2012). This should be a playoff team by then.

    I think success can be determined if Freeman progresses this year. If he does, the win total will be decent this year. If he doesn’t, this franchise is in a bunch of trouble, I don’t care how good the young guys on defense get in the upcoming years.

    I am optimistic about Freeman, but we have to see what happens on the field. I like opening with Cleveland, there not exactly a defensive juggernaut, so Freeman should have the ability to settle in if he has improved.

  15. ZeroExpectations Says:


    100% right man. If Freeman lays an egg this season, can’t consistently convert on 3rd down, then not only will this year be bad, but the future will be gloomy with him at the helm throwing INT after INT.

  16. Patrick Says:

    We’ve gotta beat Cleveland!!! Gotta beat them!

  17. tampa2 Says:

    The Glazer Boys fired a real coach for going only 9-7. And you guys seem happy and consider 7-9 Progress. Well, I guess it is progress from 3-13.
    But do you really think the Amateur coach is going to take you to the promised land? If so, you need to stay in your fantasy world and be happy. Because, under Morris, this team will never see 7-9, much less the 9-7 Gruden was fired over.

  18. Pete Says:


    The team was spinning it’s wheels under Gruden, a change had to be made. Jon was putting band-aids on the problems and wasn’t building through the draft. I didn’t see him developing anybody, just trying to accumulate free agent talent. Time will tell what kind of coach Raheem is. Like I said, earlier. In 2 seasons this team should push for the playoffs.

    I agree with troxell, Freeman is the key. If he sucks, then this regime is in big trouble. However, I think Freeman will be fine. Perfect? no, but we will see progress.

    I’m sure Cleveland fans are saying “We should be able to beat Tampa” and we are saying the opposite. let’s see what happens, but I see quite a few in the media taking the Bucs.

  19. Tye Says:

    4-12…………. Rams and Lions which both seem have improved this year but the Bucs barely get by them and hopefully 2 wins at the end of the season when opponents are resting players……. NOTHING I have seen, NOT 1 game coached by Morris, has yet convienced me they can even threaten a win over any other of their opponents….. The other teams will most likely take advantage of this teams youth and inexperience…… Opposing Defenses will keep Freeman cofused and running while their offense will out smart and out play Morris’ defense……

  20. Pete Says:

    I think a lot of people are underestimating Raheem Morris’ ability to coach and call a defense. I remember he confused Drew Brees a bit in that win in New Orleans. Like I have been saying 5-6 wins in realistic.

  21. eric Says:

    Gruden left Rah with a good young offensive line, running backs, secondary and linebackers. All primarily “built through the draft”.

    Check Sundays starting lineup, many Gruden draft choices.

    If we were sputtering under him, we are free falling under Rah.

    Lucky to win two-three this year.

  22. Patrick Says:

    Quincy Black, Geno Hayes, Aqib Talib, Barrett Ruud, Cadillac, Graham, are all guys that were from Gruden. Add in Joseph, Faine, Penn, and other members of the O-line.

    You have to say Gruden did a good job on AB. Even though he’s not here anymore, he was a good pickup considering the receiver he was before he came here.

    But all of those other guys are people we’re building our future around. So if they turn out to be very productive, which is very likely, what will all the Gruden haters say about his drafts?? Personally, I didn’t think his drafts were as bad as people say they were. They weren’t the best, but he made some very picks still. It annoys me how people are already saying that Raheem’s drafts are so great, when the class of 2010 hasn’t even played a down yet, and when 2009 class really didn’t contribute at all last year, with the exception of Freeman and a little production from Miller. Everyone from those classes are unproven so far, so give it time before giving Raheem so much credit.

  23. Nicholas Carlson Says:

    The Bucs will go 10-6 on a strong defens and a smart, big armed QB

  24. Tye Says:

    “The Bucs will go 10-6 on a strong defens and a smart, big armed QB”

    TOTALLY AGREE……… Hopefully they will get them both in the next few years!!!

  25. Nicholas Carlson Says:

    Why does everyone like Stafford so much more than Freeman?

  26. D-Rome Says:

    Four wins.
