    I cannot believe how different the team looks from a year ago!!!! It is actually watchable!!!! And dare I say exciting!!!!! The roster is not ready to play with the big-boys just yet!!!! and the defense does need time to Gel, But at least it is well coached and if/when they do lose, it won’t because they were coached and schemed scared!!!!! And who knows a close game or two with some of the heavy weights and they and us could really believe that something is really going on in Tampa!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. BucsFanInChina Says:

    Mark me down for a totally.

    Jaboo will take massive strides this year should the WR and TE Corp stay healthy, Defense showing nastiness it hasn’t seen in too long with a potential lockdown rookie corner, and Aguayo is doing his thang. Overall team attitude looks fantastic and the rest of the division is currently looking like garbage.

  3. DB55 Says:

    Went from confident to very confident. I hope that’s not the alcohol talking.

  4. Buccfan37 Says:

    The votes will be the same as the last poll.

  5. Pat Says:

    It is like YING and YANG. GO BUCS!

  6. The Buc Realist Says:

    It stinks its a “secret” ballot poll!!! Put your Name on IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Totally Confident!!!!!!!

  7. D-Rome Says:

    I voted Confident. It’s still the preseason and it was still the Cleveland Browns. I have a buddy that calls Robert Griffin III RG4 because no one in Cleveland believes he’ll make it past four games.

    We’ll see if Cleveland is patient with Hue Jackson. It’s going to be a long year for the Browns. All that being said what I wanted to see on Friday night is the Bucs players win their battles and for the most part they did.

  8. Kobe Faker Says:

    Koetter can say all the nice things about Lovie not influencing the offense last year but friday wasnt the 2015 tampa offense

    that was the similar look /traits of the 2012-2014 ATL/Koetter playcalling offense that dropped 56 pts on our heads

    The real Koetter/playcalling is coming out this year

    2016 tampa bay Bucs will not be or look anything similar to 2015 team

  9. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    Totally Confident!

    And I agree with Realist. talent needs a bit more. and with Licht’s drafting maybe just one more draft to get us there. But scheme, coaching, game management, getting the most out of our players. Yes I am totally confident

  10. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Realist!!! and Jolly give me an example of a big dog team we are not quite ready to compete with. I so wanna see either of your examples.

  11. DB55 Says:


    Denver’s Defense.

  12. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    We are a rushing footbal team- coach Dirk Koetter. I don’t expect Famous to sit in the pocket 30+ time when we play them. They will get a heavy dosage of Dougie when visit us bro.

  13. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Cam look so bad the other night they are about to do a discussion on him on First Take. MVP my @$$.

  14. Kobe Faker Says:


    Not even confident enough to just say “Denver”

    Denvers offense is going to suck. Not a fan of Kubiak/shanahan schemes

  15. The Buc Realist Says:


    Look, the only thing that was softer than this preseason schedule was last year’s schedule!!!! We just went against the teams that originally held the overall 2nd, 5th , and 8th pick!!!!!!!!!!! Last year those teams had the 24th, 27th and 30th ranked defense in the league (by yards) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They have not been measured to a good team yet!!!! As much as you can from preseason games!!!!

  16. celly Says:

    I’ve increased from Confident to Very Confident.

    I can’t go Totally Confident until this is consistent during the regular season.

  17. ninety9buc Says:

    Reuben Randle is available.
    Bucs need to sign him now!!!!!

  18. Kobe Faker Says:

    Paul Kruger = More confident

  19. Dubcity Says:

    I can’t believe that many people said not confident. What more do yall need to support a team. Yall must not like the bucs.

  20. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Realist!!! Excuses are useless bro. We lead the league in rushing last season and will lead the league again this season. We have a nasty pass rush. When you couple those two factors you are good enough to beat anybody.

  21. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    I keep telling y’all this season not predicted on the passing of Jameis WINston. This season is predicated on the rushing of Doug Martin and and the elevated play of our defense.

  22. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    And for the record my vote was “totally confident”. How can one not be he landed on a gold mine of a team.

  23. phreakybucfan Says:

    Confident. If we have winning record after 8 games I go to very confident. Winning record at the end of the season= totally confident.

  24. Buccfan37 Says:

    Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. … I enjoy the Bucs encouragement overall. Don’t mince no words, I too can see it all happening.

  25. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    37 people are hesitant because they haven’t seen it with they’re eyes yet. If I didn’t firmly believe in what I was saying wouldn’t bro. I’m not cut like that.

  26. Mike Johnson Says:

    Its great to have confidence in someone/something. However winning results are much better. Confidence is like Mike Tyson once said, Everybody got a plan..until they get hit!! Don’t get punched in the mouth Mr. Koetter. These Buc fans will turn on you quicker than a..King Cobra strike!! And..they won’t provide you with any..antivenom.

  27. Bucsfanman Says:

    For some reason I can’t see the poll. I can only assume it has to do with a winning record.
    We have better talent this year and what appears, so far, to be a better defensive scheme. There’s no reason to believe this team can’t be an 8 win football team. Maybe better. You can’t use preseason as a barometer but it looks better.

  28. The Buc Realist Says:

    And Mike Johnson knows!!! He was lovie’s biggest fan!!!! That punch was so hard to him, I don’t know if he will ever have his confidence back!!!! The harder they fall, I’m I right!!!!!!

  29. 813bucboi Says:

    confident….voted little confident the last time….everybody showed me something which was good to see….GO BUCS!!!!

  30. Mike Johnson Says:

    Thank you there..Mr excitable..Pee in you pants Buc Realist. Now get to the bathroom. its your..diaper change time!

  31. The Buc Realist Says:

    Wow, only 27 sheep left!!!!! What a difference a year makes!!!! From night to daylight!!!!! Better get a good spot on the ship now before it takes off and leaves you behind!!!!!

    Jameis Winston says: Mr Realist, how do you track down the sheep??????

    The Buc Realist says: We make them come to us!!!!!!!

  32. Mike Johnson Says:

    Not to excitable there Buc Realist. Remember what the Doctor says about your..incontinence!

  33. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:


    I agree with alot of what you said.

    However I am worried about oline depth and wr depth. Also for any games GMC misses, which is a high probability, we saw what that did to the pass rush.

    we also havent seen too much from Dougie in the preseason, and other than the browns game we havent looked to good in preseason

    jameis can light it up but he is also streaky.

    Dont get me wrong. my optimistic predictions is 10-6. But alot has to go right

  34. BucFan20 Says:

    Still only confident. It was the Browns and it is preseason. Let’s see what they do under real pressure against good teams and with real bullets flying that count.

  35. Gilhealy Says:

    NoSBoS, it’s a pretty brow beaten fan base. You can understand why some can’t see the forest through the trees. Sad, really. In my opinion, there is not one team out there that we can’t go toe to toe with. Pro athletes need that little something extra to put them over the top. Jameis is that something. Koetter knows it, Smitty knows it, Monken knows it, and every other coach that came running to be part of the team picture knows it. It’s gonna be a fun run for years. Multiple SB’s and a nationwide respect for Tampa Bay is forthcoming toot sweet. Oh, on Sat morning, Kiper wanted to pick us over Carolina for the division, and say’s he’s still may do it. He say’s Jameis is taking this franchise to the upper echelon. Very confident was my pick.

  36. The bucfan 88 Says:

    I just wanna know who voted they are not confident was that lovie smith coming on here voting lol

  37. Buc1987 Says:


  38. Buc1987 Says:

    Realist. Sigh…lol

  39. Pickgrin Says:

    Very confident that the efforts of Koetter, Licht and Winston combined will transform the Buccaneers into a winning team within the next 2 seasons.

  40. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    I went from totally confident to totally confident..No change at all…I have no doubt we are making the playoffs…maybe win the SB in two more years..but we are a playoff contender this year..

    GO BUCS and GROUP HUG to all that voted the same…

  41. Dave Says:

    I don’t understand the little or no confidence votes, but whatever, always done haters.
    I can’t go totally cngodent yet either, he’s got to prove it along with the new look D.
    I gave him a very confident though.
    I still think they are one year and a play making safety and another WR away from being a consistent 10 win team for the foreseeable future.

  42. Dave Says:

    But realist
    You are right, the preseason schedule has been less than stellar but guess what?
    Pre season does not mean shiiiite.
    All I care about getting to the season pretty healthy.
    They have the talent for playoffs.
    Probably a WR and safety playmaker away from being a top tier team.
    They have depth at CB and OLINE and RB and average depth at DLine.
    Need more depth at WR and LB and need a TE to emerge if a 3-4 WR doesn’t.


    For the first time in years they have a massive foundation of talent, a franchise QB and the coaching in place.

    It’s an exciting time

  43. William Walls Says:

    My position moved from Very Confident last week to Totally Confident this week.

  44. PRBucFan Says:

    43 dummies

  45. BucFan20 Says:

    So that make you the lone idiot?

  46. Old Time Buc Says:

    I am very confident, not totally. So they had one dominant preseason game and that makes a lot of you totally confident, ok. I am totally confident they are improved over recently past teams, but they still have a ways to go to be equal to all the teams that are great. I will agree that they are going in the right direction and need to continue that way, but our receivers need help, our Db’s are better but not all-pro yet. Yes they are my team and have been since the beginning, but I am far more open and not with blinders as some.

  47. PRBucFan Says:

    Actually there would be nearly 2 thousand “idiots” along with me according to the poll. 😉 Jackass. Lol
