In Search of a New NFL Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

I am on a quest to find a new NFL team. I need a mistress team to get me through those times when the Titans just aren't doing it for me. I'm going team by team to find out which team is the best fit for me. Now let's look at the NFC South. These four teams have rabid fan bases whether they win or lose. Since I'm a Southern girl I can see myself picking a team in this division. Let's check out the Bucs.

I actually kinda like this team. Ignore the history of losing and you'll find me squarely on "Team Raheem". He's turned the Bucs around in a year. Can't knock the hustle. The fact that Raheem and the Bucs went from finishing 3-13 to 10-6 was a big surprise. The fact that the team picked up Coach Morris' option to pay him $2 million per season over each of the next two seasons was not. Morris, the youngest head coach in the NFL, orchestrated the biggest turnaround in Bucs history with the NFL’s youngest team. Needless to say, things are looking up for the coach and the franchise. So basically I could be a fan of this team for years with no risk of retirement. Josh Freeman is gaining steam as the new "it" QB. He's even stepping up during the lockout. Nobody expected him to mature this early in his career. Now, the former Kansas State standout is drawing from praise for organizing offseason workouts with his teammates while he and the rest of us wait for the NFL lockout to come to an end. Freeman shocked the rest of the NFL last season by leading Tampa Bay to a 10-6 record and is doing the same with some of his teammates with his leadership skills. Last season, Freeman threw for 3,451 yards with 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions. I like the guy, obviously. This team is seriously in the running for my mistress team. They have no rooting interest against the Titans so it feels safe.

Tune in tomorrow to see if the Saints or Falcons can beat the Bucs for my affection!

    I was looking forward to this post. We the Bucs fans would be happy to have you. But I already called dibs on Josh Freeman. :)
