Buccaneers: Something has to change during bye week 2020
Something has to change for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Bye Week 2020
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperately need to see some changes be made over the course of their open date this coming week.
The Buccaneers currently sit at 7-5 overall following two-straight losses to the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs in the past two weeks. The Bucs had a chance to win both games, but were unable to come up with just a handful of plays that made the difference in the outcomes.
As we step into Week 13 of the NFL season, Tampa Bay remains as a legitimate competitor for a wild-card spot but it would seem that the NFC South division is almost completely out of reach.
The Bucs would currently get that third wild-card bid if the season ended today, but there’s still work to be done.
As we look at what this Buccaneers team needs to change, the truth is that the list is more exhaustive than most would like to admit
- The offense needs a complete makeover
- We need to see quicker routes run, taking pressure off of Tom Brady and the offensive line
- The defense needs to fix holes in its zone coverage
- The offensive line needs gain chemistry (with new bodies and such)
- Tom Brady and his receivers need to gain chemistry & learn their roles
These are just a few of the things that we’d like to see over the course of the bye week, but the biggest one remains complete remaking the offense.
That offensive attack should be one of the scariest in the league. When you’ve got Tom Brady, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski and others all on one team, there should be no way that this team goes scoreless for quarters on end and punts as often as they do.
We need to see more creativity and imagination within the offense. If that doesn’t happen, it could be a long end to a very disappointing season. If it does, though, there’s nothing stopping this team from reaching heights it hasn’t achieved in a very long time.
