Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Bucs-Redskins

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Let’s not kid ourselves — it’s over.

The breathtaking promise of the opening two weeks has turned into harsh reality. This will be an 11th consecutive Buc season without a playoff berth, followed by a regime change.

This was the game that could have prompted a turnaround, facing a battered Redskin team at home. This was the game to stop the bleeding and trigger a winning streak against bottom feeders like the Giants and 49ers. (more…)

Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Bucs-Panthers

Sunday, November 4th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Dirk Koetter says the Bucs are mired in a depressing pattern this season.

Make that 11 seasons.

Koetter was referring to Tampa Bay’s habit of falling far behind in the opening half, only to stage a comeback bid that falls short. We’ve seen that play out against the Steelers, Falcons, Bengals and Panthers while the Bucs dropped 5-of-6 after a 2-0 start.

The overarching pattern, however, is far more depressing. The playoff drought is almost certain to reach 11 years and another regime change appears likely.

This team has changed defensive coordinators and quarterbacks, yet the losing continues. (more…)

Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Bucs-Bears

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

BY IRA KAUFMAN

Admit it.

If you would have known that the Bucs were going to split their first four games this season, you would have been thrilled.

Now, you’re pissed.

As they have too many times in recent memory, the Bucs failed to show up for a road game. They deserved every bit of that 48-10 drubbing at Soldier Field, where conditions were perfect and Tampa Bay’s execution was anything but. (more…)
