Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2007 NFL Projection:
Coming into last season, we were quick to point out the incredibly difficult strength of schedule facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006... And strength of schedule certainly had a role in dropping the Bucs to (4-12). Of course the injury bug also played a role, most notably Chris Simms and Simeon Rice...

In 2007, Tampa's schedule certainly looks easier compared to the previous season, as seven of the Buccaneers' games in 2007 are versus teams that finished below .500 in 2006, including; at Detroit, Arizona, at Atlanta, Washington, at Houston, Atlanta, and at San Francisco...

Of course Tampa fans know the Bucs lost last time they played at San Francisco (2005), not to mention getting swept by the Falcons (7-9) last season.

On the flip side, the schedule has its dark side too, with the first five games lining up as;

Heck that could be five losses right there (even though the Rams aren't known for playing that well on the road), so the Buccaneers have to come out steaming in 2007.

Additionally, later in the season the Bucs draw Jacksonville, and of course second meetings with the Saints and Panthers.

However, it's not like the Bucs aren't capable of competing... After all, last season in the "almost" category; Tampa Bay lost to Carolina by 2 points, lost at New Orleans by 3 points, and lost at Chicago by 3 points. Not to mention beating Philadelphia and Cincinnati.

Of course the Bucs also were blown out a few times, most notably week 1 versus Baltimore, and on Thanksgiving in Dallas... But in all fairness, when Tony Romo lit up the Bucs for 5 touchdown passes, the Bucs were playing their third game in 11 days... A preposterous situation for any NFL team to be in. Not to mention the Bucs were (3-7) coming in with not a lot to play for in their moment of exhaustion. At any rate, the Buccaneers' defense was clearly a shadow of its former self in 2006, surrendering 353 points overall.

So who are these 2007 Buccaneers?

The 07 Bucs are a team that looks to be turning to Jeff Garcia (coming off a great fill-in campaign for Donovan McNabb) at QB. However, in Tampa Bay, Garcia will find an offensive line that didn't exactly light it up in 2006. Although the line adds Luke Petitgout in 2007. Furthermore, the depth at receiver is questionable with the erratic play of Michael Clayton. It would appear the Bucs will have to rely on their defense to get the job done in 2007. But after last season's performance, it's tough to give the Bucs' defense too much credence when making predictions for 2007.

Tampa Bay certainly has enough games against sub .500 teams to potentially get a fair number of wins in 2007. But there are also a plethora of games versus playoff caliber teams such as Indianapolis, New Orleans twice, Carolina twice, Seattle, and Jacksonville- likely to keep the Bucs' record in check in 2007.

Overall we're predicting a (5-11) campaign for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2007.
