The Buccaneers went 7-9 this past season and wound up on the cusp of making the playoffs. Are there some surprised fans out there in the crowd? I’m sure there are, just as there are surprised fans in Cincinnati right now after the Bengals made their fourth playoff appearance since the Marvin Lewis era began in 2003. Recording a 4-8 conference slate with an even 3-3 divisional performance doesn’t exactly speak volumes about the team. But if you look closely, the positive takeaway from this year’s season is that the Bucs played most teams close and were in the running for the victory in most games. Now please enjoy my ideas for Tampa Bay’s New Year’s resolutions.
