  1. Bob Says:

    Very confident in an excellent defense.

    Confident in his QB? Not really

    Difficult position for our Defensive head coach, offense is ultimately his responsibility but poor performance will reflect more on Canales and our GOAT GM

  2. Dave Pear Says:

    Todd has a chance to prove a lot of people wrong.

    He won’t, but at least he has a chance.

  3. D-Rome Says:

    I’ve had little confidence in Todd Bowles since Week 4 of last season. He will not be the Bucs coach next season.

  4. Jack Sparrow Says:

    No confidence. 4 years as HC of the Jets and last year with Brady and having a good defense….. he is not a HC material.

  5. Brian Says:

    There’s just something about him that’s off as a head coach. Sure it seems like the players like him as a person but he doesn’t seem to have the same “it factor” as other successful head coaches

    For instance he’s not naming captains yet this year?? Playing coy on naming a starting QB, then like 3 days later saying ok mayfield is the starter (which everyone knew). He does some head scratching stuff and his track record doesn’t give him the leash to be able to absorb this stuff.

  6. ATrain Says:

    So question???? If you voted confident WHY? What had Bowles done to show you anything?

    He didn’t have a winning season with the Best QB in the league and say what you want many Teams would have taken Brady this year,,,

    Shows no much with Defense last year

    AND let other coaches take the fall for a failed season

    Ummmm SOOOOO

  7. ATrain Says:

    Dang Joe HOW DO I stay out of moderation???????????

  8. Bee Says:

    After the debacle of a season last year to the questions at Oline and QB, we’ll see. His in-game decisions leave a lot to be desired as well.

  9. Craig Says:

    Like many things, I’ll believe in him when I see it.

    I haven’t got any confidence in him, his resume is driving the Jets into the ground. He got to the Stupor Bowl and won, but not because he was HC.

    Last season I watched him screw the pooch on numerous occasions, so he has to prove he understands football to me, I doubt he can.

  10. Jonny Says:

    I voted “little confidence”, but a more appropriate phrase would be “some confidence”. I believe Bowles will field a good defense this year and have them play with swagger again. The overall team performance though would be dictated by a well functioning offense working in tandem with our defense. With the O-line the way it is, Bowles need to be exceptional at game management and get the STs to play at a high level. I don’t think that will likely happen.

  11. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    Totally confident that the Bucs will have a new head coach for the 2024 season.

  12. BucsFan81 Says:

    Not much confidence at all. Should have been fired with Leftwhich. Either way my expectations is not very high. The ship will probably go down by October and we will be talking draft.

  13. Erik Hesson - Fine Artist and Founder of Says:

    Hey, Glazers,

    60% of the fanbase has little or no confidence in T Bowles.

    You better bounce this dude if we have another uninspired losing season.

    Lovie 2.0

  14. First Name Greatest Says:

    Confident that the defense will play decent, yes.

    Confident that the defense will play the corners mostly in zone and let teams move up and down the field with quick short passes, YES!!!!

    Confident that the defense will give up multiple 3rd and long conversions, HECK YES!!!!!!

    Confident that he can lead this team to a winning record, NO.

  15. Boss Says:

    where is the He should be fired option?

  16. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Really hoping he can win us all over this year. If he can put forth a top 5 defense and give Canales a little more free reign when it comes to more aggressive play-to-win decision making vs playing scared then that’ll go a long way for me

  17. Pewter power Says:

    He gets Brady and then goes 8-9 and gets embarrassing in the playoffs. If he didn’t like the way the offense was being run well he’s the coach and had other play callers. I just want an offensive coach

  18. Tye Says:

    No confidence and should be fired!

  19. D-Rok Says:


    I pretty much agree with you. I voted confident just to try to be optimistic for a change from Bowles this year, but honestly, his stripes will not likely change.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Legit question – not a statement – but why would anybody be confident in Bowles at this point?

    I can understand all the other options, but what has Bowles done that would make you confident in him? I’m not asking that in an attacking way, I’m genuinely curious on what the answer might be, assuming it’s not just stuff like, ‘our record is 0-0’ or ‘anything can happen’, I hope there’s more to it than that.

    So you’re not actually confident, you’re just hoping for the best.
