5 dream scenarios for the Buccaneers in 2024

If all goes according to plan, and the Bucs even get some help, dreams might just become a reality.

4. Kirk Cousins and the Falcons implode

Back to the NFC South foes for a moment. Would it not be the absolute best if Atlanta were to implode this season? Let's be real, here. The Falcons signed Kirk Cousins to a massive contract, followed it up by drafting Michael Penix Jr. in the first round and now, all the talk is how they'll handle the quarterback position going forward.

We've gone from people feeling confident about this Falcons team, behind Cousins, to now hearing nothing but questions and confusion. If Cousins struggles (which would be fantastic, by the way), how long until we start hearing the "Penix" chants?

Hopefully, sooner rather than later. That would be epic.

5. The Bucs win the Super Bowl

So, if Baker Mayfield and Rachaad White both enjoy career years, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin continue doing what they do, and the defense holds up their end of the bargain while the rest of the division struggles, it would appear Tampa Bay is in position to do some damage in the postseason.

It sounds crazy right now, but this is a dream scenario we're talking about, remember? The Bucs win the Super Bowl this season.

Oh, what a life.
