(AUDIO) Nate Davis Explains Why He Has the Bucs at 3-13 in 2014

Nate Davis from USA Today predicted that the Bucs will go 3-13 next season.

He joined Booger and Rich to discuss why he has the Bucs regressing in 2014 under Lovie Smith.

Davis said that he went through the entire schedule and it shook out that the Bucs ended up with 13 losses. He said they’ve added a lot of great pieces in the offseason but it’s rare to see a team add this many pieces including a new head coach and come together in the first season.

Despite the Chiefs having a quick turnaround, Davis said that they did face some backup QB’s and a softer schedule than the Bucs will. Davis noted that even Lovie Smith was 5-11 in his first year in Chicago.

Davis also said that players will have different roles in this new system. Take Lavonte David for example. He probably won’t have big sack stats like he did in 2013 because the Tampa 2 relies more on a pass rush from the defensive line and to Davis, the Bucs haven’t proven that they can get to the QB without a blitz.
