This shouldn’t come as a shocker, but the Buccaneers were offensively challenged throughout the 2014 season. Yes, you all are fully aware of that. The difference now is a current Tampa Bay player described how bad it truly was.
“We were really trying to find ourselves all year and I don’t think we ever really got a foothold on that,” said Bucs’ center Evan Dietrich-Smith. “It’s like somebody gave you a box, and the box was full of things, with a picture on the side like a kids toy set and then you open the box and there’s no directions and they tell you to put it together. That’s kind of how it was. We were sitting back and staring and we never really got it quite right.”
However, Dietrich-Smith would later add that head coach Lovie Smith did a great job getting players prepared and keeping the locker room in line.
So there was apparently no direction, yet Smith did a great job. Anyhow, you can hear the audio for yourself. Make of it what you will.
