In 2013, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell way short of the preseason projections. Because of this, the coaching staff and general manager were unceremoniously released. But what went wrong? Was it coaching or did the roster lack talent?
Like any new general manager and head coach, Jason Licht and Lovie Smith’s first duties after being hired were to evaluate the current roster and find out what needs improvement and where the strengths of the roster lie. I decided to do the same.
Below is the link to my personal evaluation of the Buccaneers’ roster from last season. It’s not a summary, it’s strictly a scouting report on each player that played enough snaps to get a solid idea of his performance. I’ll let you decide where the strengths and weaknesses lie.by
