The Buccaneers are not in a great spot right now. After dropping another game against a terrible team, some steps are needed to save the season.
No one on the planet should be confident or happy about where the Buccaneers are right now if they are a fan of the team.
Losses against the Steelers and Panthers in two weeks is impossible to get past.
The Bucs aren’t playing up to their standard of the past few years, and some changes are desperately needed to get this franchise back on track.
1. Fire Byron Leftwich
The first move should be pretty simple: Byron Leftwich should not be with this team any longer.
The play-calling has been abysmal, and acting like it is going to magically change without any coaching changes is naive.
Leftwich has lost the magic that he found under Bruce Arians, and it is time for Bowles to recognize that this change is beyond fixing.
The Bucs currently have one of the worst offenses in the NFL with Tom Brady at quarterback. That should cause anyone in the league to lose their job.
Someone new can’t do any worse, and perhaps an influx of a new head will change things up for opposing defenses.
