Rivera coached number 1 defenses in chicago and san diego (with no namers in SD). There is no way ur telling me he cant match or trump a john fox defense with a full offseason to teach, retool, and rejuvenate.


that depends if he wants to step on his opponents throat or play bend/don't break..



if he's more the latter, he'll be allowed to "walk" just the same...


<-------- so tired of coaches playing scared...

This conversation will be more meaningful after the draft and FA.

We may be 80% of the way to becoming a solid contender, but keep in mind that the final 20% is the toughest part.

That said, I love this team's chances going forward.

Valid to a point. I'm not sure the Bucs are the best example; they have a weak staff, do not maximize their talent level (see cap space) and the Glazers may be more interested in Manchester United than the Bucs.

But obviously, this team has to show progress next year to validate their direction and philosophy.

True but people were looking at their quarterback play and the fact that they won a good number of games (all be it against weak teams) and marked them down as a team on the rise.

If we actually do something this offseason and add some good players I can easily see us going 11-5.

I'm dying to see what Vegas gives as the O/U line for next year. I'm guessing 8 or 9 wins. This year their line of 4.5 looked easy in the offseason. Then by midseason people were laughing at those that took the bet. Now money is being paid out.

If it open at 7 wins I will be laying down some fat cash. Next year is a 8-8 year at worst, barring injury.

no they weren't.

bucs were looked at as a solid team. nothing spectacular or dynamic or even dominant about them. nothing special.

this offense is looked at as being one of the most dominant in the NFL going forward. it's looked at as being something special and all that's needed is a defense that won't give games away.

Yep. It's time for a very nice run boys.

Next year we play the following slate.

Home:
Bucs, Falcons, Saints, Cowboys, Giants, Cardinals, Raiders, Chargers

Away
Bucs, Falcons, Saints, Eagles, Redskins, Bears, Broncos, Chiefs

I can see nine wins with that schedule, maybe ten.

looking at that, there isn't any team i feel intimidated by.

we very well could go undefeated at home against those guys.
i say we'll probably split with the falcons and saints.

there's easily more wins than losses on that list of opponents.

if i had to predict right now i'd say we go 4-2 in the division, split with the NFCE, maybe 3-1 against AFCW, and beat the bears and the cards.

that's very doable, imo.
