What will the Buccaneers’ record be in 2013?
Marc Rogers – “11-5 , first in the division.”
Luke Weber – “10-6… the lack of depth scares me but there is no question this roster is filled with top tier talent across the board.”
Ryan Terrana – “10-6 with a wildcard berth. We will be a competitive team this year and make some noise.”
Ken Boehlke – “8-8. The Buccaneers will be much better than a eight win team, but the schedule is brutal. They’ll lose a handful of games that they play well enough to beat plenty of other teams around the league. Each and every week will be a battle, and it’s going to wear on them. If the ball bounces right they can end up in the 11-12 range, but there’s simply too much talent on the other side of the field each and every week to predict more than a .500 team.”
Michael Decker – “Before the pre-season, I picked the Bucs to go 10-6 and I am sticking with that. In order to do that I have them winning at home against the Saints, Cardinals, Eagles, Panthers, Dolphins and Niners (yes, that’s right) and beating the Jets, Falcons, Lions, and Panthers on the road. I think the schedule is a tough one – the Rams are a media darling and look like they have improved under Jeff Fisher. The Seahawks in Seattle is going to be a serious challenge…”
