Where are the soft spots in the Buccaneers 2017 schedule?
The Buccaneers enter the upcoming season with a lot of hope. 10-6 was the record last year, and it would be hard to argue against the fact that the team is already better than they were last year. This is all before the NFL draft has even taken place. And to top all of that, the preparation will be on display for the world to see on Hard Knocks. There is a lot to be excited about.
Now it becomes more real. If anyone missed it, the schedule has been released, check it out. At a minimum, the Bucs will be seen twice on the national stage in primetime. If the season goes the way we all think it will, the Bucs will see NBC on Sunday night at least once. If they are finally given the proper respect of course. It happened once last year so it can happen again.
