“Nobody Can Explain What They’re Trying To Do”September 23rd, 2013
It’s a great question: What are the Bucs doing on offense?
Joe hasn’t seen an offense with so little rhythm in a long time. The playcalling flummoxes Joe. At least on Sunday it was unpredictable for a change.
Former Bucs guard Ian Beckles (1990-1996) doesn’t get it, either. Speaking as co-host of the Ron and Ian show this morning on WDAE-AM 620, Beckles said Mike Sullivan is worse than Josh Freeman.
“Nobody can explain what they’re trying to do,” Beckles said. “Josh is not good, but Josh is just one of the problems we have offensively. … The scheme, offensively, is God-awful.”
As Joe’s written previously, it’s as if NFL defenses caught up to the Bucs offense last November and it hasn’t adjusted or recovered.
Joe, however, can’t hurl a truckload of blame on Sullivan yet. Joe would have to know whose decision it was to play not to lose in the closing seconds of the Saints and Jets losses. And the poor depth at receiver and tight end surely isn’t Sullivan’s fault.
