Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Bucs fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

Buccaneers fans have been very up and down with their faith in the team this season to this point. After beating the Cleveland Browns last week 26-23 in overtime, fans are cautiously optimistic about the team’s success moving forward.

It’s fair to point out that the team hasn’t done much to allow fans to be extremely confident in their direction. So it’s understandable.

Below is the graphic for the confidence rating which shows the slight increase.

The confidence rating for Week 8 is down 10-percent from last week. But if the game against the Browns would have ended in a tie or loss, we could have seen that confident rating plummet.

Also for this week, we asked Bucs Nation’s readers if Jameis Winston is the right quarterback for the Buccaneers moving forward. Readers voted nearly 3-to-1 that Winston is the right quarterback for the future of the franchise.
