The 2017 season was one of disappointment for the Bucs. Full of expectation heading into the year, a combination of factors led to a pair of five-game losing streaks and a 5-11 mark for 4th place in the division again. Dirk Koetter had to deal with mounting speculation about his job and the seeming lack of progress from Jameis Winston caused issues too. The curse of the show Hard Knocks struck again.
