Bucs Among Leaders In Percentage Of Scoring Drives

June 22nd, 2022

Dynamic offense.

There was a time when the Bucs possessing an offense like this seemed incomprehensible.

Back then, the Bucs having one of the greatest NFL offenses was nothing more to Joe than a Big Storm Brewing-induced fantasy. Well, fantasy is now real.

How good has the offense been the past two seasons? Well, consider that only three teams have scored on a higher percentage of their offensive drives than the Bucs. That’s per the PFF Tribe, as you can see below.

It’s all about scoring points. And the Bucs have done that very, very well.

And think about this, in the past two seasons, mental patient Antonio Brown missed 18 games. Chris Godwin missed seven games. (And both missed playoff games.) Plus foot-rubbing Rob Gronkowski missed four games and Playoff Lenny missed three games. Imagine the Bucs having all four of those guys at full strength the past two seasons. Sheesh.

Once Tom Brady moves on, it may be a long, long, long time before we see a Bucs offense this dangerous.

    I know many will hate this, but dmmit, get in some conversations with AB about coming back! He is who he is, crazy, but talented!

  2. SufferingSince76 Says:

    AB isn’t coming back. He burned that bridge.

  3. 1sparkybuc Says:

    No AB. Not dependable.

    A few years ago,Todd Monken was asked about the problems with Red Zone offense
    Joe, you posted about this years ago.

    I will never forget Todds straight forward answer.

    Todd said ‘We choose to suck”

    It is so good to have the Master, TB12 at QB, not making head-scratching plays in the Red Zone.

    GO BUCS!!!!!

    I suspect most will want a WR/TE to replace Gronk….but I’m for a pass rusher…..I think our Offense is still fine without Gronk.
    The D needs to be very stout this year against our schedule.

  6. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Tampabaybucsfan@ “The offense will be fine without him!” Seriously? Was the offense ok without Godwin? Would it be without Evan’s? Evan’s barely reached his 1000 yds last season, Gronk had 802 only playing 12 games. I’m pretty sure he’ll be missed, especially with the loss of AB. This team lost two 1st round HOFers.

  7. Infomeplease Says:

    Mad Max, why would you want a QUITTER like AB on this team???? He’d probably walk out of the Super Bowl at half time if it got him some clicks on his social media accounts!! Ex great turned into a complete loser!!!! Gronk is playing with a punctured lung and cracked ribs and AB can’t play cause his foot hurts!!!! LOSER!!!!!

  8. Infomeplease Says:

    Or leg whatever

  9. #8 Says:

    The O will not be as good. The O did fine without Gronk last season, but had Godwin/AB…so points will be less.

    Go get more D. I see no way the O cannot score 20. Get more D.

    I get TB12’s value and do not wish to diminish it. However he still hasn’t walked across Tampa Bay! He may be the GOAT..but he’s NOT the only talented QB in the league.

    Just check out the top 5..Mahomes…and Allen are the new “best” QB’s in the league and the prototype of what that position will look like in the next decade.
    Although Allen is a freak with that size.

    You could add Joe Burrows…Stafford…and a few others who would all be just as effective in this offense as Brady.

    Again no disrespect to Brady. He IS the GOAT. But you do not need the GOAT in any sport to win a championship. Does a GOAT give you a head start…yes…but they’re not irreplacable.

    I think we Buc fans suffer from “Battered wife syndrome”. We’ve sucked for so long that we can’t believe we could have a good franchise…if GB went from Favre to Rodgers…KC had a really good QB in Smith…4 post season runs…3 Pro Bowls and yet they found Mahomes to replace him.

    I view GOATS as earning that title over many, many seasons of DEPENDABLE excellence. I do not believe any GOAT in any sport is always the best player in any given season.

  11. Listnfrmafar Says:

    stp@ so you’re saying you still win SB without Brady. Mahomes didn’t, Allen hasn’t, Roger’s can’t bring it home and Burrows shouldn’tbe in this discussion. Brady did it in 1 season, unheard of.

  12. August 1976 Buc Says:

    No Brady, No Super Bowl.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  13. geno711 Says:

    I agree with the guys who suggest using the money available on another defensive guy is a smarter move at this point.

    Offensive playmakers at this point will cost you a lot of money unless you are talking headcase AB or injured OBJ. Pass on both. Should have Godwin back before OBJ.

    Anthony Barr could probably be had for not alot. Play some of the JPP snaps?

  14. cavillator Says:

    I think another reason BA retired was to show the league that BL is the main one behind the offensive success, thus setting him up for a head coaching job.
    Maybe BA will be our offensive coordinator if BL does leave? 😂

  15. Eddie Marz Says:

    Antonio Brown? He’s too self centered. He was worrying about targets while the team was still losing to The Jets. Don’t need a cancer like him around.

  16. Eddie Marz Says:

    Hey St Pete fan, you forgot this team wasn’t going anywhere before Brady came to town. They couldn’t even make it to .500.
