    The head coach is reposnsible for the entire team. Yes, Leftwich sucks, but ultimately itvis on the head coach. Both have to go after such a poor performance when everyone had high expectations. They are just not good at their jobs…it happens.

    Made the playoffs, I usually rag on defensive head coaches because they have terrible defenses but the defense was good.

    Granted he is the coach still responsible for the whole team. A C is fair. Hopefully we can hire a good OC to start rebuilding.

  3. Allbuccedup Says:

    Losing season has to be an F with Tom Brady and the talent on this team.

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Sorry, Todd….you simply aren’t inspiring…..and Byron….”you be an idiot”

  5. Buc50 Says:

    I’m grading on the team record. Division leader is a division accomplishment. We underperformed our expectations by a wide margin. The division as a whole is bad but we just happened to be less bad. No way we are above a C-

  6. Tye Says:

    For a team to go from one of the top scoring teams in 2 seasons to barely getting a TD in a game each week With Tom Brady as your QB and the talent The Bucs have at key positions, I can NOT justify anything higher than a D!

    The only reason the Bucs are in the playoffs is because the other 3 teams in the division sucked and Brady magic when it was needed at the final moments it was needed IN SPITE OF Bowle’s ineptitude!

  7. Ultra ClodHopper Says:

    He was one more bad day away from failing. D

  8. D-Rok Says:

    D doesn’t only just stand for “Degree” (for all you college attendees), it also stands for below average.


  9. Allbuccedup Says:

    Brady owes Todd Bowles for his first losing season and now has to win three playoff games to avoid it.

    Won the division. That’s good enough for C- for me. All these people say he is not inspiring or have the fire that BA had, which they say causes bad coaching like they’re in the locker room. Players always said he’s a much different on the practice field. Just because he doesn’t bring the firey cigar “smoke” to the pen and mic, doesn’t mean he’s a bad coach.

    Anyone selecting F is literally stupid. Yes they went sub .500. They won the division and are in the playoffs. The have the same shot at winning a SB as any other team in the dance

    If they would have missed the playoffs, then yes you would be able to select F. My god, the amount of mouth breathers in here is dizzying

    IRA SAYS: “If you’re wondering, Tampa Bay’s only first down of the second half came on Trask’s 9-yard completion to Breshad Perriman.”

    1. That Trask, playing only the last 2 drives, threw for the only first down in the entire second half tells you all you need to know about the personnel on the field in the second half.

    2. Trask should have been given much more than 2 drives at the end of the game.

    3. Trask should have been allowed to play with the first team.

    Terrible coaching and management all around. And they still lost.

  14. SufferingSince76 Says:

    No, what’s dizzying are people like you, uhhhmmm, who accept mediocrity. You, either, aren’t old enough to have gone through the awful history of this franchise or you are a glutton for punishment. I’m guessing you’re young since you appear to like personal attacks.

  15. uhhhmmmmm Says:

    SufferingSince76 more like mouth breathing since 76

  16. uhhhmmmmm Says:

    Since this season is an F, that means its over right??? Oh wait there’s a HOME PLAYOFF game in one week……..

    I missed this poll

    I also missed the pole.


  21. OBVIOUS Says:

    Interesting that uhmmm didn’t mention the grade that he or she would give but I’m pretty sure I already know with my best guess. Uhmmm is one of the 3 (or uses 3 accounts) and grades Bowles with an A. BTW, which is CLEARLY absurd! I’m not saying he earned an F but CERTAINLY NOT AN A! Uhmmm is a family member of Bowles and it’s interesting to know that the general vibe is getting back to Bowles via family members. Hopefully he will do a FAR BETTER JOB with the coaches he actually picks himself. Besides that, it was in large part a disaster with the greatest QB to ever play the game. Ruin a few of his records. How in the whole wide world could you possibly give that an A? Well, you’d have to be a family member. Right…. Sorry kid but reality is reality and I SERIOUSLY DOUBT he’d give himself an A. Of course he wouldn’t!

    FFFFFFFFFFFFF effing FFFFFFF. This guy couldn’t motivate a starving dog with a rib eye.

  24. C2asante Says:

    There are several openings for coaching positions every year. I seriously wonder why you have never held one given your indicated expertise when you are critiquing men who have. Note as bad as you say Coach Bowles and Leftwich are, I bet they are not sitting around typing about how poor you perform on fries or the drive thru. You think they suck, and you are Mr Irrelevant to them…

  25. NEfan Says:

    C2@ the only B+ on the board. Congrats you made the right decision playing pocket billards over football. You would have never cut it. By the way I make a pretty darn good curly fry, maybe I can send you some.

  26. NEfan Says:

    Beanblo why again should Trask be allowed to play with the first team? Maybe put the long snapper in for Hainsley to while your at it. Better yet Bowels played QB, dress him to.

  27. Goatfarmer Says:

    The composite grade looks to be a D+.

    That seems too generous.
