The Buccaneers close to setting another unwanted record


Well, if you are going to be bad at least, be the best at it. Considering how horrible our secondary has been, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Hopefully, in the offseason, this gets corrected. With a sneak peek into next season schedule, Tampa has to do something to make the defense capable. The defense has been anything, but capable this season. Reconstruction of the secondary and the defensive line has to be the main priority. We cannot waste money on free-agent busts, and Tampa should be drafting defense, heavily in 2016.

“The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 69.3% of their passes this year, a season after allowing them to complete 68.7%. Those are staggering numbers: only eight times has a quarterback ever done better than completing 69.3% of his passes in a single season, four of those seasons posted by Hall of Famers or near-certain Hall of Famers — and one by Kirk Cousins, assuming he doesn’t mess it up next week. Only the 2011 Indianapolis Colts and 2007 Detroit Lions had opponents post higher completion percentages.” – Reported by Sander Philipse
