How good are the 2013 Bucs?
So I was just thinking about the roster and how it stacks up in the league.
On defense we have a top 5 3 tech DT ( McCoy ), Top 8 OLB ( David ), the best CB in the league ( Revis ) and a very good safety combo ( Glodson and
Barron ). That's five studs. Throw in a Clayborn, Bowers, Foster and Banks ( rookie ) and this D should be a top 15 unit. Only problem is depth.
On offense we have top 3 OG ( Nicks ) top 10 LT ( Penn ) and top 15 second OG in ( Joseph ). I think a top 5 WR combo in Jackson and Williams. And Martin who is a monster RB. Oglethree has gotten better every year in the league and Crabtree could be this years Martellus Bennett at best, at worst he's a great blocking TE. This unit to me should be top 8.
So it all comes down to Freeman. If he can play like he did 2 seasons ago theirs no reason in my mind why we are not a 12 win team. I think if Free plays like last year we are a 10 win team. We are that good. We are a very top heavy team in talent. To me this season isn't if we are going to make the playoffs but how far can we go once we're there.
