The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are struggling in multiple facets of the game thus far in the 2022 NFL season. With a sub .500 record the media and fanbase want answers and head coach Todd Bowles attempted to provide that Tuesday.
Speaking on the Buccaneers’ Radio Network, Bowles was asked if he yells and screams or has a different approach in situations like this.
“Do you yell and scream in situations like this? Do you just teach? Do you do a combination of those? What do you feel like is your way of trying to, in the role that you have, right the ship from the way you approach it?”
“Well there’s been a bunch of yelling and screaming, but at the same time you have to coach, as well. You know we got 10 more games to go; it’s not down in the dumps. We trust each other. We know each other. We continue to try and get better and do things and eliminate mistakes. Communication is always important on both sides of it. So the yelling and screaming when you lose, that’s going to be natural. But it’s coming from a place of coaching. It’s not coming from a place of, you know, ‘you’re a butthole’ and all that type of stuff. So, that’s part of it, but at the same time you have to teach them. We have to tweak things. We have to constantly tweak things and teach them because that’s what coaching is.”
The Buccaneers aren’t out of playoff contention and still lead the division. So all hope is not lost, but something has to change. And if that change is Bowles stepping out of his comfort zone and dressing down players, Bowles seems willing to do so. Even if it’s within the confines of the locker room.
