Many people who are discussing the upcoming NFL season are looking at the teams that could win the Super Bowl.
But what about the teams on the other side of the spectrum?
Many bad teams in the NFL are set for some disappointing seasons.
Stephen A. Smith and the panel on “First Take” discussed which teams will have the biggest decline this year.
Smith said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to see the biggest decline.

The main reason why the Bucs will struggle this year is the obvious one.
Tom Brady is no longer in town.
Brady’s retirement left a major void at quarterback.
They did not have a solid backup plan and now they are going to pay for it.
The Bucs signed veteran quarterback Baker Mayfield in free agency this offseason.
He has been announced as their starter for the upcoming season.
Smith also mentioned that the team finished last year with an 8-9 record.
It seems like all but a guarantee that they will have fewer wins this season.
Even though the NFC South is one of the worst divisions in football, it may not matter.
The Buccaneers could very well end up being the worst team in that division.
It would be a shocker if they ended the season back in the playoffs.
Many teams have given Mayfield a chance to be their starter and he has failed.
Nothing in Tampa Bay should lead us to believe there will be a different result this year.NEXT: Keyshawn Johnson Criticizes Aaron Rodgers For Recent Drama
