    bonus points for the poem
    i think 10-6 or 11-5 barring serious injuries

    Not sure if this changes your prediction… But Giants game is in Tampa I believe, not MetLife…
    Gotta like the bucs odds more at home right? Do I hear 11-5???

    Go Bucs!

    First of all, glad to hear that the Tampa area got spared the direct hit from Irma that was forecast. Hope all of you and your families are ok.

    Trevor, thanks for this. Here’s my predictions:

    Week 2 – vs CHI – W – gotta watch that rookie RB of theirs though
    Week 3 – at MIN – L (close), could go either way. No way Bradford throws for 300+ though
    Week 4 – vs NYG – W – D gets to Eli
    Week 5 – vs. NE – L (although I’d like to see them do what the Chiefs did to them)
    Week 6- at ARI -W (revenge)
    Week 7 -at BUF – W (I will be at this game – Bills tough at home no matter how bad they are but not this time. I will be tailgating with my Bucs gear
    Week 8 – vs. CAR – W – will be far more entertaining than last year’s games vs. CAR
    Week 9 – at NO – L – Superdome haunts us again
    Week 10 – vs NYJ – W – wonder if Josh McCown will still be upright by Week 10
    Week 11 – at MIA – W – Cutler throws 2 more picks, like he did last year with the Bears
    Week 12 – at ATL – L – could go either way again
    Week 13 – at GB – L – the famous 1 and 2 on a three game road trip
    Week 14 – vs. DET – W – back in the win column
    Week 15 – vs. ATL – W – split with ATL
    Week 16 – at CAR – L – another clunker of an NFC South matchup with Cam and co.
    Week 17 – vs. NO – W (I will be at this game too) Hopefully this clinches at least the wildcard. Even though it’s on NY’s eve, if it gets flexed to 8:15pm, I’m ok with that. I don’t think 10-6 will win the division but you never know.

    I have a problem with predicting entire seasons in advance based on individual game outcomes. Coaches and players hate it too. As if the entire performance of an entire organization can be boiled down to which sportswriter guesses better, or right or wrong.

    I cannot predict anything. Nobody else can either.

    Let the game outcomes speak for themselves. I certainly hope for Bucs success, and I generally believe the Bucs will be successful this year, because of what has transpired so far with development of the team. But beyond that, the fun is not in predicting, it is in observing what the Bucs actually do.

    This is the year the BUCS beat the Pats.
    Write that down.

    1. 5.1

      BucFan circa76

      I agree btw, but believe it or not the Bucs have historically fared better against the Pats than the Jets. Our lone win against them was John McKays final game

  6. 6


    Unless your predicting another hurricane will force the bucs to play the giants in MetLife, they will be facing them in Tampa this year.

  7. 7


    My predictions

    Week 2 – vs CHI – W –
    Week 3 – at MIN – L
    Week 4 – vs NYG – W –
    Week 5 – vs. NE – L
    Week 6- at ARI -W
    Week 7 -at BUF – W
    Week 8 – vs. CAR – W –
    Week 9 – at NO – L –
    Week 10 – vs NYJ – W –
    Week 11 – at MIA – W –
    Bucs players hit a wall with no bye week. Injuries pile up.
    Week 12 – at ATL – L
    Week 13 – at GB – L
    Week 14 – vs. DET – L
    Week 15 – vs. ATL – L
    Week 16 – at CAR – L
    Week 17 – vs. NO – W

    We Finish 8-8 and blame the NFL and our schedule with no bye week

    Trevor, totally love the epic Night Before Christmas poem!! I do believe our Bucs will shock everyone again this season with a win or two nobody saw coming!
