It’s the most wonderful time of the year, where every fan base believes their team is one key draft pick away from a football dynasty that will reign longer than the Lannisters at King’s Landing. The truth is, not only should every fan think their team is capable of a playoff run but every player and coach should too. Well, every coach not named Jim Mora.
Key players on the Bucs all believe they have the necessary components to make it to the Round of 12. Lavonte David was asked about the playoff potential for his team this year:
“We have a lot of talented players on this football team and it’s not just me that is really hungry and eager to get there. There are a lot of young guys who are working out every day, battling their butts off, trying to learn as much as they can to get us to that level, so it’s very important. That’s our main goal right now – to win this division and also get into the playoffs.”
Lavonte David isn’t alone in his thoughts. Veteran wide receiver Vincent Jackson is on the same page.
"I am very excited about the upcoming season. We have the players, coaches, and amazing fan base to reach the postseason and more! Lots of work to do, but it's time for the Bucs to get over the hump!"
I would say that Doug Martin aka Muscle Hamster aka Dougernaut aka Dougie Fresh aka Mr. Martin said it best when asked if this team has what it takes to ascend to the Promised Land:
“Yeah, I do. I do and if you don’t have that confidence going into the season then you shouldn’t be on the team. I definitely have that confidence."

If anyone steps in the doors of One Buc and doesn’t believe the Bucs will be playing football in January then I’m pretty confident these three veterans will change their thinking quicker than when Bobby Petrino left the Falcons.
