LaDainian Tomlinson Tabs Buccaneers Backfield as Top 5 for 2021


While the rest of the NFL is trying to figure out how to stop the Buccaneers in 2021, things don’t appear to be getting easier. The offense that Byron Leftwich is spitting out is dizzying to opposing defensive coordinators. The NFL Network’s own LaDainian Tomlinson is not giving any of them a security blanket. Putting the Buccaneers backfield of Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II in his top 5 for 2021.

Is it run to setup the pass, or pass to setup the run?

Let the Buccaneers opponents in 2021 figure that one out. There are no cliff notes to figuring out how to stop this offensive train. The 1-2 punch of Fournette and RoJo. Or is it RoJo and Fournette? Either way, the task to stop this running attack in conjunction with the passing game will cause plenty a sleepless night.

With a second year working together and third year for RoJo in this system, this RB tandem has the ability to flow like clean mountain water. Clear, fast, and oh so cool. Just one of the many facets of the Buccaneers chances in 2021, to defend that Super Bowl LV title.

Buccaneers NFL Network love

It may be new to be getting some love from the three letter network, or the four letter network for that matter. But with all of the attention now turning to the improvements all thirty-one other teams have made. It still feels good to accentuate the positives. The running game for the Buccaneers in 2021 could most definitely be just that.

As the summer months run into training camp, then training camp to the preseason. There will be replays of games from the 2020 season. Fans will be reminded of what stadiums looked like during a pandemic. What it was like to hear audibles being called out from the field. Without the assistance of sideline microphones. There will be way-too-early season predictions. Followed by early season predictions. Then the 2021 season will get underway. From what Tomlinson says, and every Buccaneers fan knows. The defending Super Bowl champions should hit the ground running.
