Excellent season projected.

Last week Joe brought word from the in-house stathead of NFL Network, Cynthia Frelund, saying her projections show the Bucs to finish with 8.9 wins.

In other words, she expects the Bucs to struggle to have a winning record.

The crowd over at BSPN thinks differently. Oh, they expect Bucs fans to really sweat through September and October, and not due to watching games on a concrete patio. They claim while the early part of the season won’t be great for Bucs wins, park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring Bucs quarterback Tom Brady will be lighting up defenses, averaging over 300 yards passing per game.

The BSPN numberscrunchers think the Bucs will be 4-4 to start the season, but will hit overdrive with an impressive second half that will vault the team far into meaningful January games.

(Notice Joe used “January games” as in plural.)

 A demonstration of a humming Bucs offense will be seen in a home showdown with the Super Bowl champion Chiefs, where the old master Brady upstages his young understudy, Pat Mahomes.

It has become clear that the Tampa Bay offense can overpower just about anyone on the right day. And this was the right day: Tom Brady throws for 291 yards and three scores against the Chiefs, besting Patrick Mahomes.

In Weeks 9-12, Brady, 43, is showing no sign of wearing down with 1,200 yards passing in those four games.

Brady’s TB12-fueled stamina continues into the season finale. But Bucs are in a three-way tie for first with the slimy Saints and the Dixie Chicks. Brady goes wild in Week 17, raking the Dixie Chicks for four touchdowns in a 55-21 Bucs win sealing a Wild Card.

BSPN computers continued and showed the Bucs losing a division tiebreaker to the slimy Saints, as Tampa Bay dropped both games against New Orleans. Revenge, however, is coming in January, before the Bucs lose the NFC title game to the Cowboys.

Brady, BSPN believes, will finish with an astonishing 4,615 yards passing, shattering the record for most yards passing by a 43-year old quarterback previously held by George Blanda at 461 yards.

    I still think we need another db.

  2. james west Says:

    yeah simulations is just that, we will see let the games begin

  3. PSL Bob Says:

    Games have not yet begun, so fantasy times are still with us. Can you imagine Brady leading the Bucs to a perfect season, including a SB victory in the team’s own stadium. Talk about cementing your place as the greatest QB of all times.

    Now back to earth. 11-5 sounds about right to me.

  4. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Nothing against Tom but I think I would rather see another picture of Cynthia Frelund, nose and all.

  5. Allbuccedup Says:

    Need to be 5-3 minimum after first eight games. The last eight games you have Saints, Rams, Chiefs, Vikings and Atlanta twice. Also to gimme wins with Panthers and Lions. Those first six I mention would yield 3 or4 losses. Looks like 10-6 or 9-7.

  6. Bucsfan951 Says:

    Of course they do, Garey. I think most sane fans recognize that Brady isn’t the long term solution. I imagine either they will try to groom a qb they have already or draft one next year.

    If they don’t draft a qb next yr and don’t groom an existing one (Rosen comes to mind) then I will be hitting the panic button.

  7. Clean House Says:

    The panthers are no gimme game with McCaffery

  8. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Total BS … no one has seen what the Bucs have going on this year..

  9. MP Says:

    You know this simulation is wrong if it has the Cowboys going to the Superbowl

  10. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Brady says he wants to play another 4 or 5 years. If that happens, we should have a couple more Lombardi trophies to display. Whatever. It should still be fun to watch.

  11. D-Rome Says:

    Anything less than 11 wins would be a failure for Cringing Jason Licht.

  12. Max Vasher Says:

    Got to go with Scotty in Fat Antonio on this one. Frelund is fire.
    PSL Bob, the perfect season fantasy scenario is in the back of all of our heads. Props to you for being one of the ones brave enough to admit it. But yeah, I’m confidently thinking 11-5 as well.

    Here let me runs simulation on madden real quick …

  14. 813bucboi Says:

    11-5 or 12-4….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  15. ocala Says:

    I agree D-Rome

    The Bucs have arguably the most talented roster in the NFL.

    IF the Bucs would have had average NFL kicking last year they would have won 10 games(Seattle, Atlanta, NY Giants) with 41 turnovers.

    Assuming Brady stays healthy the Bucs should win somewhere between 10 and 14 games this year.

  16. Sarasota Garey Says:

    So, does Kamara still not have an extension?

  17. Bucnjim Says:

    Let’s hope it’s not the same simulator that says the Brown’s will have a winning season every single year. Looks great on paper though.

  18. Formerly Tampa 2 Says:

    While the Bucs have a ton of talent, they are going to need a few games to actually get to know how each other plays on game day and builds cohesion. So we fans better not expect to win from day one in N.O. I predict 10-6 in regular season and to be much better in the play-offs.

  19. Brandon Says:

    How is Atlanta suddenly a contender again? What did they do other than add a broken down old RB and had no major fixes to a rickety old defense that was bad last year.

    The Sage Bowl:

    KC vs TB

    Ira will be a happy camper either way!

    Go Bucs!!!

  22. SlyPirate541 Says:

    The Bucs will start the season with a good, controlled, balanced offense that can engineer long drives. Their 2TE sets they will convert a lot of 3rd downs and be capable of burning a lot of clock to preserve leads at the end of games.

    The only difficulty will be coming from 2 or more scores down. If they play smart and avoid turnovers, this shouldn’t be a problem in most games.
