Maybe the panelists are putting some stock into Tampa Bay’s lackluster preseason, but I think they’re taking the Bucs too lightly. Detroit, Miami and Kansas City are the teams immediately ahead of Tampa Bay and I think the Bucs are better than those three teams.
In fact, I think the Bucs are going to be better than a lot of people expect. In our season predictions, I had Tampa Bay at 9-7 and just missing the playoffs.
I think the Bucs belong somewhere in the mid-teens.
