Tampa Bay Buccaneers Have Problems That Won’t Fix On Their Own
Against the Los Angeles Rams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed in a loss that they had some glaring issues to deal with.
They might be the defending Super Bowl champions, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have primary and secondary issues; ask the Los Angeles Rams.
Tom brady and his friends were nothing like the team that entered the game on a ten-game winning streak, losing 34-24 to Matthew Stafford and co. before a Sunday night showdown against New England in Week 4.
While the No.12 may be looking to return to his old home, he would much rather examine the issues of his first trip to Los Angeles, a trip that showed flaws that will hamper this team on the road if they don’t. are not corrected.
Keep in mind that Tampa Bay has brought everyone back from last year’s racing for the ages, including the flaws that seemed to have been fixed in that hot race at the end of the season.
The main problem? The young secondary, in particular the cornerback position. The secondary problem? Already mentioned. Outside of Mike Edwards and Antoine Winfield Jr., passing coverage has hardly been a defensive factor.
The offense is not immune from criticism either. While Brady played superbly in the first two games of this season, Los Angeles still seems angry over the Super Bowl loss Brady and his Foxborough friends inflicted on them a few years ago.
As such, they once again attacked Brady, and this time it seems to have been more satisfying; see Rams coach Sean McVay and beware of his speed.
Brady may have had more passing yards than Stafford, but the latter threw four touchdowns, and the former only found the end zone once when throwing the ball at Giovanni Bernard, although that seemed to have been an expensive game. He scored six points on a stealthy shot, however, and Chris Godwin scored the other touchdown on a sweep.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have no choice but to solve their problems or risk more disappointments on the road.
Even with Sean Murphy-Bunting with a shoulder injury and Jamel Dean, who gave up an interception during the game, having injured his leg, Todd Bowles is still one of the best coordinators in the game, and he has to. solve this problem. .
When it comes to the offense, consistency is key. There has to be a change of approach. Just 35 total yards rushing, with a 44-year-old quarterback being the first forward with almost half the total, just isn’t acceptable. This is not last season, Tampa Bay; it’s a new year and a new ball game.
In addition, only one bag per day and no turnover? Sorry, this is poor play, frankly, and unacceptable for a unit which, as previously reported, had an impressive playoff streak that ended in a Super Bowl.
It’s still early days and the Rams are a team to be reckoned with, given their approach all-in and their appearance against Tampa Bay and so far. Still, the Buccaneers are the defending champions until they are eliminated.
However, the knockout could be sooner rather than later. Do you want to come back to Los Angeles to play in the Tampa Bay Super Bowl? If so, fix your primary and secondary issues and do it ASAP.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it should at least be better than what has been displayed in City of Angels, and frankly, for most of this season so far.
