5. Get Chris Godwin more involved

Speaking of getting players the ball more, where on earth is the Bucs' game plan for Chris Godwin? How is this for a statistic: Godwin has been targeted 68 times this season (second to only Mike Evans' 70) and has been credited with zero drops.

Zero. Zilch. None.

Godwin is still as good as it gets when it comes to reeling in the football. His hands haven't gone anywhere. If you're a Godwin fantasy manager, maybe you're not paying close enough attention and simply looking at total points scored every week. But, Godwin's talent hasn't dissipated. He is still a great wide receiver, and the Bucs have to start getting him the football more regularly.

This team's offensive identity should be simple. It sounds way too much like common sense, but Tampa needs to get the football in the hands of their best players. Godwin doesn't drop passes. Rachaad White has been playing excellent in space. The tape should tell you all you need to know. Get these guys the ball more and stop playing around.

If the Bucs can do that, then they'll have a shot to get back into the playoff hunt and potentially compete for this division, still.
