Pewter Report breaks down the Buccaneers’ 2013 schedule game-by-game and projects a 9-7 record for Tampa Bay. Will that be enough wins for the Bucs to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2007?

Too safe a pick.  I'd say at least 10-6, 11-5 likely.

Which is what I am predicting as well.  So are many others here.  National media types not even.  Now sure we could use better depth and there are some question marks such as Revis and Nicks but on paper at least there really is only 3-4 holes on this team.  LDE is the biggest one on Defense and TE on offense.  This is not including Freeman.  That's really not a bad place to be in roster wise.  Every team has some holes.  We even have a handful of above average players.  So tell me, if we do go 9-7 or worse then what is the issue?  It's either coaching or Freeman.  Personally I think it's both.

The realistic side of me say 7-9 or 6-10. Sorry, don't have faith in the OC and DC.

What does the fan side say?   Realistically?

10-6 for me.

8-8 worst.

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.

If Freeman leads this team to 9-7 do you guys want to keep him?  Realistically you can't give too much more supporting talent and this is his 5th year.  That would be his ceiling.

Not to turn this into another Freeman thread, but it will depend on his contribution(s) or lack thereof to the 9-7 record.

The most important decision this organization has to make which will affect the next 5+ years is about Freeman.  Can't ignore it.

Best case scenario 10-6

Worst case scenario. 7-9

It Freeman guys, it's Freeman. Freeman has as complete of a team as any QB in the league so our record could be 6-10, it could be 11-5. I can see both happening depending on which Josh Freeman comes to the ball park the most this year.

I think most fans would agree with 9-7 a month ago. Now after another terrible preseason by Josh, like usual we're a bit concerned and not ready to throw our hat into 9-7

I expect more points, more yards, and fewer turnovers from Freeman. A top 10 to top 12 defense should be good for a minimum 10 wins. I'll go with that. The offense was ranked 9th last year. They'll improve on that. 10 wins will be good enough for at least a WC spot in the playoffs. The Bucs will win their first playoff game since the SB. They might even win their second. JMO.

I'm definitely prone to being too optimistic, but I really believe the Bucs will be a playoff team this year (and have bet a lot of money on them). I think they are a 10-6 team that could do better with some lucky breaks.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.
