The secondary has gone through some ups and some downs. The addition of Bradley McDougald proved to be effective against the Jacksonville Jaguars. When Johnathan Banks returns that should fill in a missing piece and the Buccaneers secondary should come together. There is only some minor tweaking that is needed in the secondary to make the Buccaneer defense whole. With the offense clicking and Jameis Winston improving, Week 6 could very well spark a revitalizing in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the must needed win, at home, against the Jaguars began our season turnaround.
“Injuries have been a major issue for the team as Tampa Bay has started the same four players in the secondary in consecutive weeks just once. Also, poor performance has also been an issue this season. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. The secondary was supposed to be one of the team’s strongest points entering the season. The unit has a chance to right itself. The bye week has given the Buccaneers a chance to get some extra practice in. Also, when the club returns to action, it will take on a Washington team that is having trouble moving the football. Still, it starts with the Buccaneers.” – Reported by Rick Brown
