Tampa Bay Buccaneers: A Dark Horse To Win The NFC In 2011?

If you have watched NFL football in the last decade, then you know that the NFC is a topsy-turvy conference.

The last team to repeat as NFC champions was the 1996-97 Packers. Since then, twelve different teams have represented the NFC in the Super Bowl. Champions have ranged from dominant No. 1 seeds wire-to-wire (’99 Rams) to a team that took the title “worst playoff team in NFL history” to the Super Bowl (’08 Cardinals).

The Green Bay Packers just won the Super Bowl and have a plethora of young stars to build around for years to come. But just ask the Eagles of the early 2000’s how often that formula leads to the NFL’s promised land.

It’s very early but I am already making a prediction for the next NFL season.

I’ll examine how the young Buccaneers from Tampa Bay have the talent and poise to make a Super Bowl run in 2011.
