Peter King, one of the most respected NFL writers in the country, is very optimistic in his outlook on the Bucs.

That is, unless the offensive line doesn't turn things around.

King joined WDAE's Sports Page on Tuesday morning and told Tom Jones and Rick Stroud what he thought of the upcoming season.

"If you ask me, they have a good chance to be vastly improved," King said. "But if they don't protect their quarterback, that's going to go by the wayside."

In addition King, who heads up the website and can be followed on Twitter @SI_PeterKing, chatted about his visit to Detroit over the weekend to check out Johnny Manziel.
