An Early Look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2014 Opponents: Can the Bucs Win with Greg Schiano?

His fate certainly has yet to be decided, but all signs seem to point to Greg Schiano getting another year in charge of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite his awful track record as an NFL head coach.

So assuming that he’ll be back, let’s take a look ahead to next year’s scheduled opponents, according to the Buccaneers’ official website, and see what sort of challenges the team will face.

Home games:

  • Green Bay
  • Minnesota
  • Baltimore
  • Cincinnati
  • Atlanta
  • Carolina
  • New Orleans
  • Arizona or St. Louis

Road games:

  • Chicago
  • Detroit
  • Pittsburgh
  • Cleveland
  • Atlanta
  • Carolina
  • New Orleans
  • Washington or New York (Giants)

A lot will change between now and the start of next season, but there are certainly plenty of tough games on this schedule. Road tilts at the Bears, Steelers, Browns and Redskins or Giants pose the risk of a snow game, while home games against Green Bay and Cincinnati seem like a huge task considering the talent on both teams.

So how many games do you think the Buccaneers win in 2014 with Greg Schiano at head coach? And does your opinion change if Schiano isn’t in charge?

Leave your answer in the poll below, and sound off in the comments to let us know what you think of the Bucs’ prospects for 2014.

    Leo, are you able to make sure Coach Schiano isn’t voting more than once?

      I’m sure that there are people who troll the voting process. It’s weird that people honestly think this team can win games with this coach next year.
