Let's think about it, the Bucs were 3-13 last year and made no major changes in the offseason. In the minds of people who don't follow this team, there is no reason for us to not be in that range again.
They made one huge change this year--they got a much easier schedule.  Last year they had one of the toughest schedules in the league and had to play the NFC and AFC East divisions.  This year?  AFC North and NFC West.  MUCH easier.  Instead of the Jets, New England, Dallas, and Philly, they get Seattle again, St. Louis, Cleveland, throw in a Kansas City date . . . it's going to be easier to win, just because their opponents suck more.

Prove em wrong Bucs ...I am sure they have no idea what is even going on in Bucville but when they see 3-13 last year they figure Bucs will be the same.

I would love to say they are wrong but they aren't. I think 2-14 is a little low on the wins but not far off. We have few proven playmakers on our team. Not a single superstar.. (PLEASE name one!!!!) I will always support my team but you sound crazy here, this is definitely the delusional optimist board. Our coach can't even speak english and our owners are broke. We should all boycott like they do in the UK

Him and Jamie Dukes are the worst analysts I have ever seen. So clueless.

Why, just because you don't agree with them?

Which response do we get this time? Butthurt? Needs medical treatment? Or the all time favorite, \"Drama Queen\"

2-14 would be unacceptable.

Even Dominik says the team must perform better than last year.

Good thing we actually have to play the games and that 2-14 is just someones opinion.

I listened to this, these guys are not even doin their homework. No defensive playmakers? Tanard Jackson, Aqib Talib, Geno Hayes, Quincy Black, Gerald McCoy already commanding the double? No veterans in the receiving core? Kellen Winslow, Reggie Brown, Maurice Stovall?

Why even pay these people if they dont take the time to research what the hell they are being paid to talk about?

What's funny is that after spending all that time trashing the Bucs, they later interviewed Raheem on the show about the upcoming season. Here is the replay of that.....

It doesn't help that one of the team's most winnable games is in Week 1, where there's a good chance the Bucs will be without Josh Freeman.

"Don't really have any playmakers on defense."

Tanard Jackson...not a playmaker.
Aqib Talib...not a playmaker.
Geno Hayes...not a playmaker.

They denigrate Freeman when he played on a worse team, but contributed about as well as Sanchez did.  I don't think that the Bucs are playoff-bound by any stretch, but the team will be competitive and come away with a couple of wins against quality teams. The youth will contribute to some unevenness, but this team is on the right track.

Every statement they made was "...BUT..."

Every year most of the pundits pick all the teams that won the previous year to be great again and the bad teams to be bad. It never works out that way.

2-14 for the Bucs is laughable. There is no way this football team is going 2-14 - I'll put the mortgage on that.

Shouldn't you be at work, DLT? BTW, if the Bucs don't better 2-14, I'll be by to take the home theatre before the forclose on your mortgage. You can come by my house and watch whenever you want. ;)
