Bucs Sing Familiar SongDecember 29th, 2013
If there was a sure bet in the National Football League this season, then it would have been the Bucs’ inevitable second half disappearing job on offense.
Joe’s never seen such a thing. It was almost as bad as the first-quarter disappearing act routinely seen during the Raheem Morris administration, when points in the first 15 minutes were as common as Joe ordering an appletini at Hooters.
Today was no exception, when the Bucs put up just one field goal on the Saints after two first-half touchdowns. There were drops and bad play calls and just good old fashioned ineptitude. It was especially scary considering the Bucs’ offensive line actually showed up today and played well against the NFL’s fourth-ranked defense.
Why? How could such a routine collapse not be coaching?
Greg Schiano freely says he has a strong hand in all phases of the team. The Bucs simply couldn’t find a solution to playing effective offense in the final 30 minutes of games. And Joe surely saw no excuse today.
The demise of the second-half offense surely will doom offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan. How could it not?
Will it doom Schiano, as well?
