The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-2 and are on their
#1
While many fans would have taken a 2-2 record going into the bye week Authentic Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , there’s a sour taste around the team after their play the last two weeks. While the negatives are obvious, there are some things with this team to be positive about moving forward. 1.Mike Evans and DeSean JacksonCurrently, the Buccaneers have the best 1-2 punch in the NFL this season at the wide receiver position. Evans is ranked 6th with 426 yards receiving, while Jackson is ranked 7th with 424. No other team has two receivers ranked in the top 10 in that category. Since week one, Evans and Jackson have arguably been Tampa Bay’s most consistent players week in and week out. Jackson still has top notch speed at his position and Evans has been a man on a mission ever since training camp began. The return of Jameis Winston will bode well for these two moving forward and I expect both to easily exceed the 1,000 yard mark this season. In fact, both are on pace for 1,600 yards. 2. The return of Vita Vea and Beau Allen as well as Mitch Unrein. The team will have to wait a few more weeks on Unrein, but all signs point to Vea and Allen returning after the bye week fully healthy and ready to go. All three being healthy will give the Buccaneers exactly what they envisioned back when training camp began in July. As the season goes on http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline....ans-jersey , Vea will only get better and will help free up other players on the defensive line. Since Allen went down in week 2, the run defense hasn’t been the same. He will improve that area for sure. We haven’t seen Unrein, but he is a veteran and will undoubtedly add another body to the defensive rotation. 3. The return of starter Kendell Beckwith.Yeah, this is big and seems to have been forgotten amongst many of us. Beckwith was spectacular last year as a rookie, but the injury he sustained in the off season was unfortunate and has kept him out through the first 4 games. He is eligible to return week 7 against the Cleveland Browns and if he’s healthy, he needs to be inserted right away. The defense needs a spark and Beckwith is their best coverage linebacker and should help in that department. 4. Jason Pierre Paul is off to a hot startPierre Paul is on pace for a 16 sack season and has been the team’s best defensive lineman through four games, by far. With the return of Vita Vea, JPP is going to get even more one on one looks than he has early in the season and I expect him to take full advantage of those opportunities. At this current pace, JPP would be the first Buccaneers defensive end to reach 10+ sacks since Simeon Rice did it in 2005. JPP has been a much needed boosts to this defensive line and is just another shrewd move by general manager Jason Licht that has paid dividends for this Buccaneers football team. 5. Jameis Winston is officially BACK. Don’t put any stock into last week. Winston was just average in Week 4 Womens Chris Conte Jersey , but the Bears knew every play would be a pass and it was easy for them to defend the Buccaneers in that case. Whether fans believe it or not, Winston is clearly the better quarterback than Fitzpatrick and will give this team a chance to win week in and week out. Everything on the offensive side of the ball is set up for him. He has all the weapons in the world, an improved offensive line and a play caller in Todd Monken who seems to have a good idea on what he’s doing. It’s all on Winston and people should expect Winston to rise to the challenge for the rest of the season.The Bucs are leaving yards and points on the field Everyone has blind spots.If you’ve been around Bucs Nation for a while, or followed me or Steven Beck on Twitter, you’ve undoubtedly read and talked about the Bucs’ offensive struggles in the first quarter, and first half. It’s a table that’s been pounded for years now, a dead horse beaten into dust. Besides the overarching context of the proliferation of the spread taking hold of the NFL right now, there’s a much simpler trend staring the NFL in the face: it’s much easier and better to throw on first down. Believe it or not, but NFL teams often do things that don’t make any sense. All good coaches self-scout their own tendencies and work to improve. But football coaches can also be slow to change. Those that don’t adapt http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline....och-jersey , or don’t adapt quickly enough, will find themselves without a job sooner rather than later. But we’re all human. We all have strengths and weaknesses, and even the best of us can tend to be stubborn, or ignorant, or just blind to our own failings. Such may be the case with the offensive staff of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This isn’t just a single-year thing. For the last two years (and almost certainly all three years Dirk Koetter has been with Tampa Bay) the Bucs have run two-thirds of the time on first downs in the first quarter of games despite the fact that the pass was more than twice as effective. The problems with this are numerous, but the bottom line is those who do have the ability to self-scout can find and create advantages over those that can’t. Those advantages can turn into wins.It’s a 1990s-era philosophy; run the ball on first down to protect your (young) quarterback. Except the evidence has shown for some time now that the only real way to protect a quarterback is to do the opposite and throw. Because when the run isn’t successful you just end up putting even more pressure on your quarterback. But there are practical reasons as well.Let’s look at this from a tangible perspective. If we take the last two seasons, on first down in the first quarter and factor out Ryan Fitzpatrick and QB runs, the Bucs have run approximately 146 times for 3.42 yards per rush and 500 yards and passed 70 times for 8.2 yards per attempt and 511 yards for a total of 1,011 yards. Half as many attempts for the same yards. If the playcalling had been reversed Womens Demar Dotson Jersey , the Bucs would have rushed for 239 yards and passed for 1,197 yards for a total of 1,436 yards. We’re talking about a loss of approximately 400 yards over the last two seasons. That may not seem like a lot, but the best yards per drive ranking last season belonged to the Patriots at 39.23 yards. The Bucs were seventh at 33.48 yards per drive and fifth in drive success rate. So it’s not like we can say that throwing those yards away wouldn’t have mattered. In just 2017 the Bucs left as much as a possible 215 yards on the field. That’s almost six and a half more drives worth of yardage. Even assuming the Bucs kept their average sixteenth-place points-per-drive rate of 1.82, that’s eleven more points last season. That also doesn’t sound like much, but the Bucs were 3-7 in one-score games last season, and lost four straight games in December by a combined fifteen points.Pass until you make the defense respect it, and then run. The NFL is difficult enough without throwing games away.
