The quarterback position is one of uncertainty in the future for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here are the potential starters for the 2020 season.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have found themselves in the midst of a very difficult schedule and their odds for making the playoffs this season are becoming longer by the week. Jason Licht largely deserves the blame for setting the team up so poorly through contracts and draft picks, but unfortunately the team has already extended Licht’s contract. Past the front office, the play from the offensive line and the secondary has been horrendous and the Bucs are failing to win the shootouts that their secondary forces them in to.
The secondary has been the worst unit by far for the Buccaneers and while the offensive line has looked poor, it still ranks in the middle of the pack in most categories relative to the rest of the teams in the league. Having a poor defense makes it very hard to win any games in the NFL, but having a quarterback that has 6 turnovers in one game also makes it extremely hard to win.
Jameis Winston has struggled mightily throughout his tenure with the Buccaneers with turnovers. Jameis has played in 62 games since he was drafted first overall in 2015 and in that time he has thrown 68 interceptions. While Jameis has been plagued by interceptions, he has thrown for 100 touchdowns during that time, but has been unable to crack 20 in a single season for the last two years. Jameis’ inconsistency has caused the overall fan support for his future to turn.
There are rumors that the Bucs are set to move on from Winston, but are they true? With all of the back and forth going on between Jameis’ supporters and critics, finding out who will start at QB for the Bucs in 2020 has become the million dollar question.
