To say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were an awful football team last season would be putting it lightly. They were undisciplined, unprepared, and at times, appeared unable to find their, umm, rear-ends with both hands.
But that was then, and this is now.
Shortly after the conclusion of the 2011 season, Raheem Morris and staff were relieved of their duties, which if you ask some fans came about 10 weeks later than it should have.
Nevertheless, Greg Schiano was brought in to not only restore order, focus and fundamentals, but also a little faith with a frustrated and dissatisfied fanbase.
Money has been spent and players—both old and new—have been added. All of which not only equates to a change in attitude throughout the Tampa Bay community, but a change in perception throughout the football community.
And if all goes as planned, a change in the win column this season.
