Buccaneers need to accept harsh truth about depth player

As Tom Brady and the Buccaneers near the end of this brutal season, discussions about the future need an important acknowledgement.

One way or another, this season is nearing its end. One of the most disappointing seasons in the history of the Buccaneers franchise is about to stop hurting the fanbase, and this likely brings with it the end of the Tom Brady era.

While it is the end of an era and the end of a magical time for the franchise, less people will be terrified at the prospect of a future without Brady based on how he has played in recent weeks. The GOAT hasn’t been terrible, but he also hasn’t played very well either.

A change will be for the best of everyone.

With Brady likely gone, the fanbase is starting to turn its attention to young depth quarterback Kyle Trask. This is still a mistake.

This option for the future was still a mistake on the night the pick was made, and the changing situation in Tampa has only made the chance of Trask finding success even lower.

Trask was drafted to a team that would be able to hide his weaknesses well. He has the accuracy, but his arm isn’t strong enough to push the ball down the field and he doesn’t have the athleticism  to confidently move outside of the pocket.

The best wide receiving corps in the league, a great offensive line, and Bruce Arians seemed like a great way to bridge these gaps. Who is going to fix those problems now?

Even when everyone gets healthy, Trask is on pace to have a mediocre wide receiver room, an offensive line that still has critical holes, and a coach that is doing nothing to help his quarterback.

Does this really seem like a situation that is going to benefit Trask is his first regular season reps of his career?

If (and it was a major if) the Buccaneers were going to make the Kyle Trask pick work, it was on a team that is very different from the one we have today. Don’t expect the Kyle Trask experiment to work out if the Bucs are silly enough to test their luck.
