Remember last year when the Bucs were the media darlings of the NFL preseason? All training camp the Bucs were the hot team to break out, possibly win the division and sneak into the playoffs.

That didn’t happen.

This year people aren’t willing to get burned again, but the fact of the matter is, this Buccaneers roster is even better than it was last year when they were a trendy pick. Now, the Bucs are under the radar, and Kyle Brandt of NFL Network’s Good Morning Football says that’s a good thing.

I think most Bucs fans would agree that after what they went through in 2017, all the overdramatized media hype needs to quiet down, so I believe most would shared Brandt’s sentiment.

Only thing is, by saying they’re an under the radar team on a nationally televized show you’re kind of, well, not letting them be under the radar.

But, regardless, less hype and more football is a good motto after what went down in 2017. That was Brandt’s point, and we agree.

That won’t happen unless we have another crappy season. Bucs have too much potential, so we will get talked about.

Judging by the way he wears that hat, I would say he’s the mailman’s kid.

It is good to be under the radar, other than why the Bucs under the radar, The outside world has seen nothing from this offseason to get excited about, and a lot of media got egg on their face last year touting about how Jamies with his new weapons was going to be unstoppable all the way. This year they lost a running back changed some D lineman with a couple lineman from Eagles and Giants and changed out a fat lineman for a fatter lineman with the first pick. Does Trevor see any reason the outside world would be… Read more »

We as Bucs fans are glad to have you on here That way you can tell us whose already a bust considering they haven’t played a down yet. Your constant negativity turns into whining when you comment on every post as so. You have absolutely no idea how these players or season will turn out, your not Nostradamus so stop pretending to be. The coaching staff and gm don’t look to your posts on how to make this team better. As Rodgers himself said, “relax” dude
