Four Offensive Touchdowns In 2013October 10th, 2013
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, the Buccaneers’ first choice to replace Raheem Morris, is coming to town and that’s got Joe remembering how Team Glazer likes offense.
Why else would they offer their head coaching job to Kelly?
And Joe remembers various reports that described Team Glazer’s significant influence in the Bucs’ decision to draft a quarterback in the first round in 2009.
Fast forward to the present, and the 2013 Buccaneers have scored four offensive touchdowns in four games. It’s beyond ugly. The Bucs are averaging 11 points a game and their offense is ranked 31st in the league.
What does Team Glazer think about that?
Joe’s really not sure how the Bucs will snap out of their offensive funk. Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin are struggling. There is no savior at tight end or at No. 3 receiver, and they’ve got a rookie third-round pick at quarterback.
Perhaps a Schiano-job-saving revival of the offense rests with the offensive line. These guys are healthy and getting paid an awful lot of money. They should be able to dominate enough — especially against the Eagles — to improve the entire offense.
