Todd Bowles is making his tenure with the Buccaneers worse by the hour when he talks about Tom Brady in the way that he did after the loss to the Browns.
If you questioned whether the Todd Bowles experiment was over with the Buccaneers just yet, you shouldn’t have a question all that much longer.
The writing is on the wall that Bowles is not the right man for the job in Tampa, and his recent comments on quarterback Tom Brady make this painfully obvious.
Whether he meant to or not, Bowles took a silly, unfounded shot at Brady when he tried to justify play-calling and clock management at the end of the Browns loss that was bad enough to get most of the staff fired on the spot.
Rather than simply saying he made a mistake and owning up to said mistake, Bowles tried to pivot away from the scrutiny by claiming the Bucs played it so safe at the end of the game out of fear of an interception from Tom Brady.
This might make some sense if Jameis Winston was still the quarterback, but have Tom Brady’s two interceptions this year really caused enough concern that this would happen during crunch time against one of the worst defenses in the league?
This is an absolutely-bonkers take from Bowles to openly admit that he doesn’t trust the greatest quarterback in the history of the sport in a position where he thrives unlike anyone else.
Bowles and Leftwich are proving themselves as cowards on a daily basis, and that level of cowardice has no place in the modern game.
Tom Brady should be pissed, as should Buccaneers fans across the country as they see how bad their team is underperforming. A coaching change is coming.
