    The Bucs will face KC again in the Super Bowl.

  7. Ptwalk Says:

    If they have a shot to go undefeated and it’s late in the season, I think they go for it. They can rest with the first round by. 17-0 baby

  16. gp Says:

    I get it, some of y’all think you’re being realists.
    At this point in time( granted, on paper) there really is no team in the league that stacks up against us.
    Yeah, yeah, any given Sunday, injuries, covid, yada yada yada.
    Every team faces all of those too.
    There are no guarantees but if ever there was a team built to go all the way, this is THE one!
    Damn! Is it Thursday yet?!?!!

  17. Mark Alsott Says:

    I went with 11 wins. I think the team has enough talent to get 13-14 wins, but the depth behind the starters is concerning. Need to see more out the DBs too. Still too many 3rd and longs being completed and the tendencies to give up big games against 2nd/3rd team QBs is still very real.

    Someone posted above about LA Rams being the first big test, I disagree with that. This thursday against Dallas is the first big test, considering we completely crapped ourselves in every prime time game. Plus…you have a huge target on your back after winning the super bowl, with every team gunning for you.

    I’m excited for the season to get going and hope we have a great year! Here’s hoping to a healthy, productive season and chance at repeating!

  18. Bucsfanman Says:

    Fanman has called EVERY season 16-0 for decades. Fanman received a lot of hate mail because of it. So, in breaking with tradition, for the first time EVER, Fanman is calling it different.


    That’s right, you heard it here first!
    GO BUCS!

    People should pick all their games instead of just picking a random number. It’s always fun to list this stuff and make predictions since most of the time half of them look really by the end of the year. BUT by making these time capsules, you can see what you screwed up and eventually, over years, figure out your own weaknesses when it comes to picking games, and figure out that things like SOS don’t mean squat before the season.

    WK2 ATL – WIN
    WK3 @RAMS – LOSS
    WK4 @PATS – WIN (Billicheat is going to do something to make this a squeaker)
    WK6 PHIL – WIN
    WK7 CHIC – WIN
    WK8 @NO – LOSS
    WK9 BYE
    WK12 INDY – WIN
    WK13 @ATL – WIN
    WK16 @CAR – WIN
    WK17 @JETS – WIN
    WK18 CAR – WIN

    That’s 13-4, but with 4 weeks of not winning (including the bye).

    The Rams game is a real toss up, I can see it going either way, and that’s the game I could easily see the end up winning.

    The loss @NO… anyone writing off NO is a dope. Sean Payton is just too good, and with as much as I like Arians, it’s Payton that is the better coach. Can you image in the playoffs if the Bucs had Payton as coach vs Arians with that Saints roster and a QB that can’t throw more than 10 yards? The Saints are still going to be a huge pain in the rear.

    The @REDSKINS game is going to be really tough. It’s after a bye, so that gives some hope, but that will be the Redskins Super Bowl and if the Bucs aren’t ready for that, they’ll lose.

    The Giants at home is the game people will say there is no way the Bucs lose… but the stupid Giants have always been a pain in the rear to the Bucs. On a positive note, if this happens, all the talk will be about how Brady and the Bucs are washed up, blah blah blah — that in turn makes them angry and they win out the rest of the year and are hot going into the playoffs.

    The other game I hate is @JETS… I don’t believe the Bucs have ever beat the Jets on the road, and crap just tends to go wrong for Tampa when they play them. Even good Bucs teams lose to the stupid Jets for whatever reason. It’s like how even bad Bucs teams will beat the Packers in Tampa, or bad Bears teams will beat good Bucs teams in Chicago. I’m giving the Bucs a W as I think they’ll need the win for seeding and that will be a huge game, but don’t just pencil in an automatic W without knowing your history.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Mark Alsott – I agree that the Cowboys are a big test, but they also have a bad defense. I think the offenses and special teams equal each other out, but the Bucs clearly have a dramatically better defense — plus you’re getting another 2 points or so for a packed home stadium. I think the line is around 9 points, which sounds about right. I personally believe the Bucs will get a late TD to make it look like a bigger win, but I don’t expect a blowout. I hope it is a blowout, I just don’t expect it.

  21. Crickett Baker Says:

    Rod, after your predictions about Dean and Stuard I, at this time, can not take your prognostications seriously.

  22. Rod Munch Says:

    Crickett – cool story, now post your game by game predictions then we can point and laugh after the season.

    But nah, you won’t, because who wants to put that kind of work into something like that when you can just say 17-0, then disappear from the boards for the year when the Bucs lose to the Rams – and then reappear in the SB claim you knew everything would happen just the way it happened.

    Talk is cheap, post your predictions, explain why, or keep your mouth shut, kid.

  23. Craig Says:

    Cowboys are going to have a lot to think about on their ride home. Glad I won’t be a fly on that wall.

  24. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I used to predict wins. No more.

    They will make the playoffs and the Superbowl.

  25. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    That schedule actually looks easy…when’s the last time that happened for the Bucs?
