PFF is dead-wrong about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022

It’s not obvious how the Buccaneers are seen as a team with an easy schedule in 2022, but this couldn’t be further from reality.

The football world is losing its collective mind on the Buccaneers and their schedule in 2022. We aren’t certain how it got to this point, but pretending like their schedule is anything other than a punch in the mouth is ludicrous.

Now, the Bucs should be favorites in a number of games, but that doesn’t mean these games will be easy.

We’ve talked about the schedule up and down for the past few months as we move closer to the start of training camp, and while it may feel like this topic is overplayed, a recent Tweet by PFF is too much to ignore.

The Bucs have the second-easiest schedule in the NFL in 2022? Really? Is someone looking at the wrong schedule?

What is easy about opening the season against the Cowboys, Saints, Packers, and Chiefs? Have those former league MVPs fallen off? Does someone believe the Bucs are going to magically turn their luck around against the Saints?

Does playing the Ravens, Rams, and Browns in one month seem easy to anyone, especially when it seems like Deshaun Watson could be in the mix? Saints, 49ers, and Bengals in three weeks?

Seriously, what are we missing? The Bucs are better than most of these teams, but let’s not lose our minds and call this an easy schedule.

This year is going to be one of the largest regular season tests for the Buccaneers in recent memory, and homers and Tweets like this are going to disappoint a lot of fans when this team loses a few games. Trust me, it’s coming, and it isn’t the end of the world.

A schedule like this is going to have some losses on it, especially with a new head coach and some roster changes at key positions. Growing pains happen, yet it seems like everyone is ruling them out as a potential.

None of this is to say that Brady and the Bucs aren’t ready to make some noise in the regular season and the playoffs as one of the best teams in the league, but let’s not pretend that they are going to waltz through this season either.
