The Buccaneers have one of the worst offenses in NFL history right now. Heads need to roll if there is any salvaging this season and the future.
How the Buccaneers ever reached this point is beyond this writer. Where did it all go so wrong?
Was it the injuries? Was it Todd Bowles taking over for Bruce Arians? Was Byron Leftwich truly propped up by players like Jameis Winston and Tom Brady for so long that everyone overlooked how bad he truly was as a play-caller?
In truth, it is a combination of all of these things. The Buccaneers are careening towards one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history, and almost all of that is due to one of the worst offenses ever seen.
Think this is a hyperbole? The Bucs are legitimately one of the worst offenses in the league, and nothing shows that better than their numbers on third and long.
This Tweet alone should be cause to fire every coach on the team. Maybe an exaggeration, but Bowles and Leftwich need to go.
The fact that anyone could look at this and argue in favor of this coaching pair is absolutely insane.
Tampa is killing itself by running on first down (woohoo, run established!), then can’t string together plays long enough to convert on third down from these deep positions.
Teams are just letting the Bucs get into third and long situations, something that the team does to itself, then guards the sticks.
This process has been so effective for opposing defenses that Tom Brady is off to the worst start of his career. You would even have to go back to before Jameis Winston to find a Buccaneers offense this bad.
It’s ridiculous. Fire everyone. Make the change that is so desperately needed. Leftwich at the very least needs to be gone after this Sunday.
