The Buccaneers are only half way through a season with Todd Bowles as the head coach and they should be able to see a fit isn’t there.
Todd Bowles is not long for his role as the head coach of the Buccaneers.
Whether it happens in the season, after this one, or sometime in the near future, the franchise is going to make a change due to a lack of a fit, and that is just the absolute truth.
Bowles is a great guy that can coach the Hell out of a defense, but he is clearly not the guy to lead a team like the Bucs in the pass-first era.
After way too many messy losses and some weak performances, Bowles has not done much to improve his standing in a shaky spot.
The first questionable quote was regarding the offense.
The offense running the ball less was not why the team lost. The lack of rushes from the worst rushing offense in the league was not why it couldn’t put points on the board. Leonard Fournette was not the answer to that problem.
Volume isn’t the issue here, and acting like taking the ball out of Brady’s hands (even in his worst game of the season) would solve the problem is ridiculous and out of touch.
Bad offense doesn’t save jobs in the modern NFL.
The next sketchy quote is in regards to a player that needs some tough love.
Devin White is coming off one of the worst games of his career. This quote shows that Bowles is, at least outwardly, on the other side of the Devin White discourse while almost everyone else is on the other end.
This is another thing that can’t happen. Hopefully Bowles is taking a different approach behind closed doors, but it doesn’t seem like this is the case.
One way or another, this isn’t working.
