Bucs next-to-last in Sports Illustrated power rankings



bucs.Hey, at least they're not last. Sports Illustrated has come out with its first NFL power rankings of the season and the Bucs are, well, next-to-last at No. 31, just ahead of the Bills. The Bucs opponent Sunday, the Browns, are No. 28. SI NFL writer Don Banks writes:

I read where 29 of the 53 players (55 percent) on the Bucs opening-week roster have arrived since Tampa Bay canned head coach Jon Gruden in January 2009. Wow. That's what you call an extreme makeover. Like, Lady Gaga-style.

The Saints, Ravens and Colts are the top three teams. Click here for the entire list.
