The Buccaneers are losing against one of the worst teams in the NFL right now. The weakest link absolutely has to go to save this team.
How we got to this point is beyond this writer. The Buccaneers were one of the best teams in the NFL less than a year ago. The loss of some offensive linemen hurt, but the Bucs had the weapons to overcome losses like that.
At least we thought the could overcome their losses.
The Buccaneers are currently losing to one of the worst teams in the NFL. Does this mean the Bucs are one of the worst teams in the league? They are sure playing like it.
The defense is getting carved up by Kenny Pickett. Anyone surprised by this hasn’t been watching the Buccaneers for the last few years. Rookie quarterbacks are basically the bane of this team’s existence.
The real shock from this game is that the offense is still not able to play up to any level resembling the last few years even when playing a defense that is missing most of its best players.
The Steelers are a bare bones unit today, yet the Bucs were held out of the end zone for the first half. This has been a trend throughout most of the season.
Where does this come from? Well, it is either on Todd Bowles or Byron Leftwich.
The conscious choice by either coach to take every bit of analytics out of the play calling and focus on dulling the blade that was Tampa’s offense should be an inexcusable failure. The offense works if you just let Brady throw early and often, yet we haven’t seen that all season.
The emphasis on the run is silly and costing the Buccaneers. Whoever is choosing to use that as a way of sabotaging Tampa’s offense should not get to fly back with the team.
