2. The Saints become dominant
The biggest threat to the Buccaneers this season might be NFC South rival New Orleans.
The Saints enter this season as one of the favorites in the NFC, along with the San Francisco 49ers who won the conference last year, and New Orleans has done nothing but improve over the course of the offseason.
The Bucs don’t have the depth that the Saints possess and it’s clear that Tampa Bay is going to rely upon some of those young players to make an impact and build depth so that this team can legitimately compete.
Perhaps one of the biggest roadblocks in the way of Tampa Bay winning a Super Bowl will be the dominance level of their own divisional rivals.
