HN: As early as it is to be making predictions, the schedule has been released and it might not take a lot to win the NFC South this season. What are the team’s goals, and what’s your prediction for the season?
JM: I’ve been dodging predictions because I always tend to be widely optimistic when it comes to the Buccaneers. I think the team turned a corner defensively midway through the season and adding players who not only know the system but have found success can take this team to the D to the next level. On offense, as much as I want to put it on the quarterback’s shoulders, I really believe that the Bucs will only be successful next season if they can establish an effective running game. With who? I have no clue. But hopefully we can get this figured out by the season opener.
