Bucs Nation

● By Mike Kiwak
Well, circumstances have certainly shifted for the Buccaneers since one year ago. Rewind 365 days or so, and they were coming off their Super Bowl victory and poised to retain all of their starters from the championship squad. Repeat hopes rocketed, and we all felt as good as TB12 after a kale cleanse. In 2022…uh, not feeling as good. After falling to the eventual Super Bowl-winning Rams in the Divisional Round, the Bucs have regressed into reload mode following Tom Brady’s retirement and the likely loss of several other key contributors. This roster still has plenty of talent and some fiscal flexibility to do a little tinkering, but nailing this upcoming draft will be critical for getting the team back on the fastest track possible to competitive relevance.
