Today we tackle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders and superfans. Like most of you, we are itching for football season to start. In the midst of the dog days of summer, many get sick of baseball and start turning their attention to football. Don’t blame you a bit. To help quench your thirst, BC is going on a 32 team, 32 day, 32 gallery tour of NFL cheerleaders & superfans. Will Josh Freeman return to form, or will the Bucs continue to disappoint?

Tampa Bay had a rough season in 2011. Between Freeman’s inconsistency and Blount’s injury, they just couldn’t get on track. New coach Greg Schiano looks like he might be the right guy for the job, and has already won over the team and fans alike with his move to sign Eric LeGrand.

The Bucs had a very impressive off-season so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a pretty big improvement from last season. Between bringing in Vincent Jackson and Carl Nicks in free agency, they drafted very well. Rookies Mark Barron and Doug Martin look like they’ll not only contribute from the get-go, but have an impact.

Nothing like cheerleaders in Florida. These girls just dominate the sidelines in Tampa Bay and if the season gets off to a rocky start, just know that fans will have something to distract them from the on-field woes.

Know Your 2012 Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

Key Additions: WR Vincent Jackson, G Carl Nicks, RB Doug Martin, TE Dallas Clark, CB Eric Wright, QB Dan Orlovsky
