Tampa Bay Buccaneers OddsGOOD, this is the word that defines the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012: 13 best offense, best defense 23rd, three more victories than the previous year ... The problem is that average performance is not enough to reach the NFC playoffs, especially in a division with Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Supporters say the Bucs restructuring years is gone, now want to see results.

The pressure falls mostly on the shoulders of Josh Freeman. In the final year of his contract, which must demonstrate service to receive the long-awaited contract extension, like Joe Flacco of the Ravens last year. Coach Greg Schiano has said that Freeman will be the starter next season, but sources say that franchising organization coach has lost faith in his QB. There was nothing to Tampa Bay spent a third round choice in rookie quarterback Mike Glennon.

Not that Freeman is horrible, but the inconsistency weighs in time to highlight. He started well in 2012, with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions in the first nine games, but closed the last three with only 2 touchdowns thrown and ten balls. Freeman basically same receiving corps last year, the only output is significantly lower TE Dallas Clark. Its main objective is again the constant Vincent Jackson, who in his first season with the Bucs received 72 passes, the best numbers of his career, 1,384 yards and eight touchdowns.

Despite the good figures Jackson, who actually drew attention to this attack last year was the first year Doug Martin. Second Team choice in 2012 the project came to divide loaded with LeGarrette Blount, but totally stole the scene. As if that was not enough to run 1454 meters in his first year in the NFL, Martin received 49 passes for over 472 yards and 12 touchdowns. Blount without, will have the task of carrying the playground of the Tampa.

Even with a considerable number of attack, defense Buccaneers are unsatisfactory, especially against air. After closing in 2012 as the worst pass defense, giving up an alarming air 4758 meters, the team moved and strengthened the school board with two big names: CB Darrelle Revis, former Jets and safety Dashon Goldson, former 49ers. employees who bring a certain risk, because Revis returning from a serious knee injury and Goldson was famous in San Francisco for wanting to support others against the ground game and end up burned in some deals.

It is now in the NFL, it makes little sense to carry out the best league cornerback and a high level of security if the team does not pressure the quarterback. The Bucs were the fourth worst team in sacks last year, 27 in total, and not made a big effort to improve this year. Michael Bennett, better pass rusher the team in 2012, was for the Seattle Seahawks, Tampa leaving even more pointless. In the absence of Bennett, will be up to Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers pressure the QB. Talent they have, the problem is that you can obtain a sequence of matches without contundirem.

BSN Sports blog prediction: Josh Freeman will be the scales to the claims of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013. If maintained regularly, take the Buccaneers to a possible fight for the playoffs and win a good contract extension, now another season of inconsistency can end the era of Freeman at the Tampa Bay defense also has its share of blame for this equation. Certainly do better numbers than in 2012, but did not have the computer anywhere if not urgently improve the pass rush. I see a significant improvement in the short term, 8-8 is a good size.
