The 2007 Tampa Bay Storm season was the 21st season for the team in the Arena Football League and 17th in Tampa. They tried to improve upon their 7-9 record from 2006 in the Southern Division, and looking to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2005. The apparent cause of their turnaround from an 0-5 start was the replacement of John Kaleo at quarterback with Brett Dietz. Whereas they were a combined 1-6 under Kaleo and the injured Stoney Case, they were 8-1 under Dietz. On June 13, two weeks after being placed on "left squad", T.T. Toliver was released by the Storm and subsequently signed with the Orlando Predators. On June 23, they clinched the #3 seed in the National Conference, and hosted a home playoff game vs. the #6 seed in the National Conference, the Columbus Destroyers. Unfortunately for the Storm, Columbus beat the Storm with a 56-55 win.
