In doing this series, there are many teams about which I have had a hard time explaining why they won't win the Super Bowl. Not so much with the Buccaneers.
Coaching is a good place to start, as I believe that Raheem Morris is in so far over his head, he can not even see the surface. He has not made good coaching decisions.
Quarterback—I think Josh Freeman has the potential to someday be a good, quality starter in the NFL; that day is just not going to happen for at least a couple years.
Receivers—the rumor is that Tampa Bay has every intention of starting two rookies at receiver this year, and neither of them was taken in the first two rounds of the draft.
Tampa used their first two draft picks on defensive tackles, which I actually think was a good move. They are re-building their team from the trenches, and that is a good way to start.
The offensive line is not one of the strongest units in the NFL, and they are going to stunt the growth of Freeman.
My prediction: Tampa is not going to be a good team this year, and will actually be fighting for one of the first picks in the Draft next year.
Tampa will finish with a 3-13 record, and last in the NFC South.
