Bucs-Packers could open 2011 season

TAMPA – Though there may not be a 2011 football season at all, speculation is already rampant that the Packers will open said season at home, possibly against the Buccaneers.
Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King, who missed badly when he predicted the Bucs would go 2-14 in 2010, is now suggesting a Tampa Bay-Green Bay kickoff for 2011, should the season start on time.
Keep in mind this is just speculation. Also keep in mind that others besides King are also speculating that a Green-Bay-Chicago or Green Bay-New Orleans matchup will kick off the season.
Either of the latter two matchups seems like the more choice for a season opener, but the Bucs aren’t a bad choice either, what with their growing contingent of NFL stars.
And let’s not forget that the Bucs have all but been assured of getting some prime-time exposure come 2011. Showcasing them in a season opener, while their 2010 season is still fresh in fans minds, wouldn’t be a bad way to go.
