Todd Bowles and the rest of the Buccaneers need a major win in the worst way right now, but it seems like the embattled head coach has another plan.
It is almost like Todd Bowles is trying to force the Buccaneers to fire him.
Is this really on the horizon? Maybe not, but the Bucs should at least consider the offer, especially after Bowles’ most recent terrible idea.
There are some positions where maintaining a decent rotation is important, especially on defense and with some key offensive positions. One area where you don’t want a rotating group of starters is on the offensive line.
In a perfect world, the five starting offensive linemen will never leave any game over the course of the season. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, and Todd Bowles is far from a perfect coach.
Bowles has announced his newest terrible plan with the announcement that the Bucs will use both Luke Goedeke and Nick Leverett at left guard on Thursday if both are healthy.
Health might still be up in the air for Goedeke, but the one thing that isn’t for question is how terrible this plan is.
The Bucs have already struggled enough with their offensive line. Why complicate matters for this depleted unit and Tom Brady even more with changes due to new faces coming in?
And, for what its worth, why play Goedeke at all when Leverett still looks way better in actual game situations?
Frankly, anyone expecting this to work is just down-right silly. Bowles is grasping at straws trying to keep his seat from heating up, but the issue is that this is just stoking that flame even further.
The Bucs are in trouble under the leadership of Todd Bowles. A change needs to come as soon as possible, and fans should only expect weak performances until that change is made.
