Pewter Plank Mailbag: What Is The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Toughest Game in 2013?


Jul 13th, 2013 at 11:18 am

by Ken Boehlke







 
Its time for another question from the Pewter Plank mailbag, and this time we took to Fancred to ask the loyal fans on the app about the Buccaneers, and got some great questions. This one comes from Briana Martin.
 
 

Which game do you think they will struggle the most in and why?
 

 
The Buccaneers schedule in 2013 is a gauntlet. With the six games in the NFC South, having to play the NFC West, and catching the Patriots in an inter-conference matchup, there are plenty of options to choose from.
 
At the moment the best team on the schedule is San Francisco. They are the defending NFC Champions and got better this offseason with the addition of Anquan Boldin. But the Niners have to travel all the way across the country and play in an early game. They will be fresh off a tough divisional matchup with the Seahawks and will possibly be looking forward to the following week against Atlanta. Due to these factors, the 49ers may be the toughest opponent, but its not the hardest game to win.
 
An early season trip to New England was going to be an incredibly tough game. But then due to various reasons they lost each of their top five receivers from the previous season. Underestimating Tom Brady is not something Im willing to do, but in the past few months, this went from an almost guaranteed loss to a very winnable game.
 
The last contender to miss the mark is the October trip to the Georgia Dome. Any game with the Falcons is a dogfight, and the road games are even tougher. But the Bucs recently history against Atlanta has been promising. The Bucs knocked off the Falcons in Week 17 last year, they had a really good shot to beat them earlier in the year, and split with them in 2011. No doubt the Buccaneers trip to Hotlanta will be a tough one, but if history continues to repeat itself, the Bucs could steal this one.
 
That brings us to the answer to the mailbag question. Its the Week 10 November 3rd tilt in Seattle. The Seahwaks are one of the most improved teams coming into the 2013 season and were a 2012 playoff squad. But the toughest part about this game is the environment. Seattle won all eight games played at CenturyLink Field a year ago. They have one of the loudest stadiums and one of the most dedicated fan bases in the league. The Bucs will be heavy underdogs in this game and will have to really gut it out to win this game. If theres anything to give us hope its that the Seahawks will be coming in off a Monday Night game with the Rams, and are also heading to Atlanta the following week. Maybe a bit of benefit for the Buccaneers there, but still not enough for anyone to expect a Buc victory in Week 10.

@ Seattle @New England and @New Orleans will be the 3 toughest games on the road.

San Fran should be the toughest home game of the season.

Kapernick has only started 10 regular season games, so of all the young QB's receiving insane amounts of hype this off season he may be the one to drop off the most in 2013.

I would say its between Seattle and New England.  Those Seahawk fans rock that Century Link Field.   Its a tough place to play.

The Niners will be a home game, and IIRC they are traveling cross country on a short week.  That is one the Bucs could possibly steal.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

49ers at home will be the toughest one IMO.

They will be under pressure to win at home and it's going to be very difficult to beat them.

There are a lot of these measuring stick games this year.

If they just win the games they are supposed too.  They will be in  pretty good shape.   Can't lose to chump teams like the Jets.  If they were to lose to the Jets, that means they have to make up for that loss, by beating San Fran, NE, or Seattle.  And that is no easy task.

The second one (only if they lose to the Jets...)

Seattle will be the bastard on the road.

San Fran at home...

For some reason, I'm not writing off Foxboro...   I'm expecting a damn good game that week.

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

True.  And that would be the Saints at home.  Hopefully they win them both. Get off to a good start.

I definitely think our game against the Texans in the Super Bowl this season will be the hardest. I doubt we win by more than 14.

Bucs are favored over the Jets by 1.5  points.   Total 41

That seems like a lot of points to me, with both teams having pretty good D's.  I expect a low scoring affair.
