What's your BOLD prediction for the Bucs Game on Sunday?

86 posts in this topic



Difference in being realistic and being pessimistic.

Road game. Week 1 factor. Improved Buc team. Divisional game. Weak secondary....

Oh gosh. How dare I suggest Tampa will score on us and that we will be forced to outscore them. How dare I suggest a week 1 divisional road game is going to be a very close game.

Unrealistic expectations around these parts. I also think we have a good shot at being a playoff team this year. I am not pessimistic about this squad overall. But we don't have good D.....and we are a displaced team, on the road, in a divisional game.....the stage isn't setup for a beatdown.

I think Tampa is a much improved team. Some minor changes will have a big impact.

What is non- pessimistic....Carolina 21- Tampa 3?

Sorry CRA, but I don't see you complete body of work here as realist. I don't think I have EVER seen an optimistic post from you concerning the Panthers.

I am not just talking about the prediciton here....as I agree that I beleive TB is better than many think. I am speadking to the last 100-200 posts that you have made.....all of which are massively pessimistic.

You are NOT a realist....you ARE a pessimist.

Not my fault so many only pay attention to the "negative" and ignore my positives. In case you haven't noticed....the Ron Rivera Panthers overall have been moving in the EXACT direction I love and have praised. I am thrilled about where we are going.....but that doesn't mean every post needs to be slanted towards a homersitc viewpoint.

What is so negative about my "bold prediction". Newsflash....but claiming a week 1 divisional road game against a team with new life injected in them will be close and not a taill kicking isn't pessimistic.

I think Tampa puts up slightly over 21 pts. That means our D will force us to outscore them. We aren't at full strength IMO on D yet....that will take a couple weeks. Beason has to get right first....secondary will however be a constant weakness all year.

I'll predict that Cam scores a rushing TD and gives the ball to that same Hot Blond that he gave the ball to last yr in Tampa. Only this time they let her keep the ball.

Week 1 is different for many teams every year. I mean the Ravens beat the Steelers 42-7 and everybody thought the Steelers defense was donzo. So, gonna temper my expectations and say 30-20 Panthers.
