Todd Bowles has been under fire in recent weeks due to the Buccaneers looking out-coached in almost every game. He can stand to learn from a rookie.

The Buccaneers have played like one of the worst-coached teams in the NFL this season.

No one with this much talent should be sitting below .500, yet here the Bucs are. The situation has changed some in part due to injuries and departures, but a huge issue with the shortcomings on this roster comes down to coaching.

Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich have been terrible this season. There isn’t much of a way around this. Almost everything they have done on the field has been questioned due to the below-average results, and one of the more frustrating parts of this drop-off has been that both seem unwilling to take any fault in their decisions.

Bowles and Leftwich are turning the fanbase against them by acting like they know better than everyone while simultaneously failing at their jobs on a major stage.

They could stand to learn from a rookie head coach that is obviously wise beyond his years;

Mike McDaniel, in his first year as a head coach, is taking the blame for a mistaken play here in slightly different words from “I messed up.” Regardless, the sentiment remains.

This is McDaniel’s first season in the HC role, yet he is a genuine leader and has made the Dolphins one of the scariest teams in the league. One has to think that a philosophy that allows him to say “I was wrong” would play a role in why he is getting these results.

It isn’t rocket science. This is a basic aspect of leadership that shouldn’t be lost on anyone, especially not when you mess up due to a philosophy that is based in a different era that no longer exists.

Todd Bowles needs to take notes after his embarrassing performance the past few weeks trying to justify some terrible decisions.
