As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers head into their bye week looking to pick up the pieces following a 1-5 start, there has been plenty of blame to go around for the Bucs’ issues. A struggling offensive line, a defense that hasn’t put much pressure on opposing QB’s, and poor special teams have all been big factors in the team’s dismal start.
Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports took time out of his schedule to join Fan Interference for some Bucs talk, and he believes that offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford’s absence has played a big part in the Bucs’ offensive struggles. Boomer also stated that despite the offensive line’s inability to protect QB Mike Glennon, he believes that Glennon will be the Bucs’ QB in 2015.
When it comes to describing Tampa Bay’s defense, Boomer didn’t mince any words at all. He said the team’s pass rush and pressure has been non-existent, and that the Bucs’ defensive issues all go back to not being able to pressure the QB. However, he also added that the defense as a group is lacking cohesiveness and they’re getting exposed. Take a listen to the interview in its entirety!
