Entering the league as an expansion team alongside the Seattle Seahawks in 1976, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were named (thanks to a local contest) for the 17th century pirates that frequently raided Florida's Gulf Coast.
With one Super Bowl championship (2002) and a decade of prosperity under Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, Buccaneers fans have endured a challenging period are ready and eager for another era of dominance under former Rutgers, Greg Schiano.
Checkered Past. Bright Future
Though the team has experienced its share of losing seasons, the passionate, intensely loyal fan base has remained true to the Bucs through it all. With home games played at Raymond James Stadium, famous for its 43-ton pirate ship, the Bucs enjoy a tremendous home field advantage.
The last link to the 2002 Super Bowl team, Ronde Barber, has retired after a Hall of Fame career but into the defensive backfield steps All-Pro Darrelle Revis. With Revis, Gerald McCoy and former San Francisco 49er, Dashon Goldson, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers look to take a huge step forward on the defensive end.
On offense, everything comes down to which Josh Freeman shows up to play. If Freeman can regain his 2010 form, Greg Schiano's going to have a powerhouse on his hands. Though the Falcons, Saints are proven entities and Carolina is on the way up with Cam Newton, there's a lot to like about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013. 2nd Year running back Doug Martin is a force in the backfield and with Vincent Jackson dominating defenses on the outside, the Bucs should be right in the thick of things come playoff time.
