Yarcho’s Pick Six: Offensive woes continue for Buccaneers

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ This is not what Tom Brady thought he was signing up for when he came out of retirement The opening of Raymond James Stadium for the 2022 season did not go very well.

Buccaneers Week 3 top performers vs. Green Bay

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Offensive depth pieces continued to struggle despite continued defensive excellence. The Buccaneers defense remains an elite unit as it overcame early 1st quarter struggles to hold the Packers in check for most of the game, but the offense looked completely lost in a 14-12 loss Sunday. One hopes the eventual returns of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones will get this team back to normal, but until then Tom Brady must continue to make the most of spare parts.
