Bottom Line

The Savior was last seen 2015 years ago and when he comes back, it won’t be to play football. So I’m going to stop short of calling Winston a savior but he can lead the Buccaneers’ turnaround in 2015. He’s the most pro ready player in the draft and he’s going into a system that fits him well.

Head coach Lovie Smith is a defensive guy so the defensive side of the ball should be taken care of. So there are really only three things that can keep the Buccaneers winning a bad NFC South. That’s the offensive line not protecting Winston, Winston not keeping his head on straight and the New Orleans Saints coming back strong in 2015.

The latter looks more likely than the rest.
