Why the hell not? Could the Tampa Bay Buccaneers be the first team to win the Super Bowl at its home stadium? A year ago, you would have been laughed out of every Outback Steakhouse along the Florida Gulf Coast for suggesting that. Now, the Tompa Bay Gronkaneers are very much a real thing and a huge, huge threat to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 55 at home in Tampa.

Despite being Jeff Fisher 7-9 B.S. last year, the Buccaneers inherit a third-place schedule with a roster capable of winning 11 or 12 games if everything goes according to plan. Though they have a pair of tough division rivals to navigate in the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, it’s hard to poke holes in the Buccaneers ending their decade-plus playoff absence narrative this season.

Tampa Bay has an elite coaching staff. Head coach Bruce Arians embodies “no risk it, no biscuit” and “it’s five o’clock somewhere, Todd Bowles is too good to remain a defensive coordinator for much longer and Byron Leftwich‘s ascension as an offensive mind is one of the best and most underrated stories in football the last three years. He’ll be an NFL head coach soon, too.

Add in the Saints being overrated and the Falcons potentially sputtering out of the gate again and Tampa Bay may have its first division title since Rob Gronkowski was a freshman at Arizona. This will be the most fun team in the NFL. Unless you root for a division rival of theirs, everybody is interested in having a good time with the Tompa Bay Gronkaneers. Somebody grab the rum!
