The best time for the Buccaneers to fire Byron Leftwich was a few weeks ago. The fact that the team is still missing the memo is concerning.
After several days of the entirety of the Buccaneers fanbase calling for Byron Leftwich to be fired, the team has still done nothing.
Now, should every team listen to the whims of the fanbase? Absolutely not. Fans are silly and at times foolish. They don’t understand many of the workings in an actual locker room.
Still, if a team was going to listen to its fans on one thing, the Bucs should listen to the rest of the world on this.
Byron Leftwich needs to go and he needs to go soon.
This isn’t just a fickle or fleeting feeling that comes from fans that aren’t educated on what they are seeing. The Buccaneers are flat-out bad on offense this season. When looking at the talent on the field and the way the plays are called, even a new fan of the team could quickly figure out that the coaching staff is the main reason why.
The Bucs really needed to make their change weeks ago. The fact that they are waiting is only putting off the inevitable. It makes sense that some would question this decision based on the uncertainty surrounding who would replace Leftwich, but even that shouldn’t be enough to put something like this off when it stands to reason that anyone would be better.
Tampa holding off with this simple decision is just showing that the obvious move isn’t likely to come during the season. It’s a shame. All this talent looks poised to go right down the drain if the Bucs continue to let coaching hold them back.
