PLAYERS: Sal Paolantonio

ESPN NFL reporter Sal Paolantonio made his weekly radio appearance on Wednesday during The Matt Segal Show on 96.7 The Champ. He discussed his wins and loss record predicting formula and broke down the NFC South schedules, calculating at least six to seven losses for the Bucs.

How does his formula work? Simple… He takes the amount of times a team faces a Pro Bowl quarterback in the season and divides it by two.

So for the Bucs, they face a Pro Bowl quarterback 13 times. Take that number, divide it by two and you get 6.5. Hence the reason why Sal Paolantonio is predicting the Buccaneers will have at least six to seven losses for 2012. His formula also gives the Panthers the same amount of losses with the Saints and Falcons ahead in the division.

If his formula holds true, that is the lowest amount of losses that very few from a national viewpoint have given the Bucs for 2012. With a new coaching staff, new offensive and defensive schemes, free agent acquisitions, and the way the team played last season, anything as a single digit number in the loss column will be a win for the season.
