Byron Leftwich still being allowed to go in front of cameras to answer questions is a bold move by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Byron Leftwich should’ve lost his job weeks ago. Leftwich might’ve been a part of one of the best teams in franchise history and had a heck of a resume to be a head coach at the end of last season, but his terrible performance this year and lack of any awareness of such has proven that he doesn’t deserve this job any longer.
Leftwich is a bad offensive coordinator and he is probably even worse at answering questions from the media.
It has felt like the Bucs coaches have crushed themselves under the rubble of their terrible responses in every press conference of this year. Today was no different.
Tampa’s offensive coordinator came out today and made several statements to the media in defense of the Bucs and their offense that were immediately shot down by a basic understanding of how to look up stats on the internet.
Greg Auman was able to pick up on most of these immediately.
Does Leftwich really believe this? He honestly believes the fanbase is this worried about a team with Tom Brady at the helm because they haven’t been watching?
The numbers, other than total yards, paint a very clear picture that this offense does look different and is, in fact, much worse than in past years.
In the end, this incompetence is what will get Leftwich fired. Bad play-calling and struggling due to injuries across the board is one thing, but coming out and trying to gaslight the fanbase into thinking it doesn’t know what good football actually looks like is inexcusable.
Leftwich isn’t long for this job. The front office needs to find a way to keep more quotes like this from getting out.
