The Buccaneers may find a way to turn their season around and claw themselves out of this hole. Still, there needs to be a plan for the future.
The Buccaneers feel like they are trending back to the team that most of us grew up watching.
Is the season over yet? No, but the curtain is closing on the bright hopes of the last year with Tom Brady. A lot can change between now and the end of the season, but looking at the rest of the roster has most fans wondering what the options for the future are if so much is working against the team right now.
It isn’t rebuild time just yet, but the Bucs are going to be in an even tougher spot next season when Tom Brady isn’t back and the cap space is tight.
If the Bucs are struggling this much with Tom Brady at quarterback, what will this team look like with anyone else?
The one thing that is sure is that Tampa doesn’t have a quarterback of the future on their roster. Tom Brady isn’t long for this job, and Blaine Gabbert and Kyle Trask fall hopelessly short of what is needed to make this offense work.
The fact that Tampa seemed confident going into this season with Gabbert and Trask should be a fireable offense in and of itself. Anyone who thinks that either of these guys would find success with this roster next season is just trying to be naive.
The good news for the Bucs is that they could have a higher draft pick and could secure a decent rookie in the upcoming class, but it sure does feel like there are a lot of ways for this franchise to make the wrong decision with the position if it stays complacent.
Trask and Gabbert aren’t the solution.
