Buccaneers Pick Six: Season spirals out of control
By James Yarcho
Six Numbers To Consider
Number of seasons since Luke Stocker’s last touchdown reception. He was the lone Buccaneers player to get into the end zone Sunday against the Saints.
Jameis Winston is the second youngest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 passing yards at 23 years-303 days. Drew Bledsoe did it at 23 years-299 days. He’s also only the eighth player in NFL history to reach 10,000 yards in his first forty games (Marc Bulger, Kirk Cousins, Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Matthew Stafford, and Kurt Warner)
Lavonte David is fifth in the NFL in forced fumbles since his rookie season in 2012. He has forced sixteen for his career, including four this season.
Total points the Buccaneers have scored in the first halves of the last five games. No surprise those were all losses. But about that high powered offense…
If the season ended today, the Buccaneers currently hold the number four draft pick. That’s right, the Andrew Luck-less Indianapolis Colts beat the Deshaun Watson-less Houston Texans Sunday, giving the Colts a better record than a (mostly) healthy Bucs team. What’s that tell you?
The number of answers anyone has as to what in the world is wrong with this team. This is not an easy fix. This is an unmitigated disaster – with absolutely no end in sight.
