There may be a lot of injuries on the offense for the Buccaneers, but what we have seen still doesn’t cut it. Even Tom Brady sees this.
We’ve been saying it for weeks now. Yes, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers have a lot working against them on the offensive end due to rampant injuries, but three touchdowns in three games just isn’t enough.
Good teams focus on what isn’t working more than what is. Winning mentality is always about putting focus on the areas of weakness more than the strengths. The Bucs don’t need to pat themselves on the backs for having the best defense in the NFL, they need to figure out why they have one of the worst offenses.
Even Tom Brady recognizes this fact.
Tom Brady expects more. It is more than okay for fans to expect more rather than defending every bad performance from now until the end of time through the lens of pewter-colored glasses.
It is okay to want more. It is okay to expect more when your team is this talented. Holding your team accountable is just the next level of fandom. And the Buccaneer offense does need to be held accountable.
The room might not be as talented as the one that took the field in Week 1 against the Cowboys, but even that offense didn’t take off as it should.
Between a weaker scheme that Bryon Leftwich needs to adjust and some bad plays by the depth receivers, all of this can be fixed to help the Buccaneer offense return to a respectable spot without having to wait on the stars to align and for everyone to be healthy. That day just doesn’t seem all that likely to bank on.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers just have to accept that injuries are going to be a part of the equation going forward and then find a way to get the most important part of their team back to where it was under Bruce Arians.
Listen to Tom Brady. Expect more.
