Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft Beau Allen Jersey , the Buccaneers desperately needed to add a running back. With Peyton Barber as the only guy locked into a backfield spot, Tampa Bay added Ronald Jones II out of USC in the second round, presumably as the No. 2, if not No. 1, guy.Throughout the summer, there was a lot of hype building around Jones, a back that the Bucs selected over potential first-rounder Derrius Guice. As the preseason rolled around, Jones was a popular answer as to who everyone was most excited to see in game action. What came next was a whole lot of nothing. He picked up his first touchdown run in the preseason opener against Miami and caught a 37-yard pass against Detroit, but was largely ineffective otherwise.Jones’ preseason numbers totaled out to just 22 rushing yards on 28 carries. He didn’t always have the best blocking up front, but still looked hesitant regardless. After Thursday’s preseason finale, head coach Dirk Koetter answered whether he was concerned with the struggles and addressed the rumor that circulated last week about Jones not grasping the playbook: There are certainly some positives and negatives in what Koetter said about his rookie running back. It’s definitely a good thing that he is at least showing some flashes in practice. It’s also reassuring to know that he is working hard and not having any problems with the playbook. That’s all good. But the negative here is the clear disconnect that currently exists between practice Ronald Jones and game Ronald Jones.Perhaps with time, and a healthy starting offensive line in front of him, Jones will show up and be the player that he was in college. But Koetter’s concern does feel warranted. His is likely at a lower level than most of the Buccaneer fan base. Jones, even with the bad blocking, didn’t manage to show much burst in preseason action. He didn’t make many guys miss and he didn’t appear to have much confidence in his ability. The hope for him Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey , Koetter and anyone attached to the Bucs is that a switch flips here soon. The team needs a confident, efficient RoJo. Otherwise, that “little bit” of concern will grow significantly larger. Welp. For the third straight game, the Buccaneers fell on the short side of the scoreboard - this time to division rival Atlanta. In a game that was as frustrating as any we’ve seen this season, the Bucs came a wild play away from stealing a win. Instead, they fall 34-29 and have their hopes of a postseason berth bludgeoned over the head.There was a lot to go into this, and no one player is to blame. It was a collective effort of ineptitude and too little, too late for the Bucs.Let’s pick six.Six Topics Suitable For Conversation1.) They Are Who We Thought They Were. Mike Smith’s defense continues to be a mind-boggling collection of stupidity. Yes, the defense came up with stops in the second half but it was too little too late for a defense that allowed a 24-13 first half hole. They did themselves little favors by leaving Julio Jones uncovered for the majority of the game - especially in the final four minutes that allowed the Falcons to march down and kick a field goal to go up five. Smith’s defensive scheme is just plain outdated, ineffective, and pathetic. The players aren’t executing it and Smith is unwilling to adapt to the strengths of his players. Much like Lovie Smith did, it’s the round hole/square peg syndrome. In the end, it’s not only going to cost Smith his job, but will likely take Koetter and Licht down with him,2.) Cant-kick-enzaro Strikes Again. Going back to the opening drive Adam Humphries Jersey , where the Buccaneers scored with ease, then Catanzaro missed the extra point. That extra point managed to loom large over the game. Because of it, the Bucs had to attempt a two-point conversion - which failed. Had Catanzaro just done his job to begin with, the Bucs are marching down the field for a potential game tying field goal rather than diving into their book of tricks for a miracle touchdown. All that guaranteed money and he can’t kick. Hate to say I told you so, but...3.) The Final Play Call Was Brilliant. Say what you will about the outcome, that final play was a genius idea that ALMOST worked. From the 21-yard line, the Bucs had little chance of pulling off a jump ball in the end zone with Julio Jones back there playing safety. The element of surprise worked and the lanes opened up for the Bucs. Unfortunately, Adam Humphries bobbled the ball leading to a delayed pitch to DeSean Jackson - that he couldn’t handle - and the game ended. If DJax scoops up that lateral, even with the delay, we’re talking about a Bucs win this morning.4.) Jameis Winston Looked Fine - Don’t Panic. Winston finished the day with his second most passing yards and second most passing touchdowns in a game in his career. The interception in the end zone was a misfire, yes. If that ball is 8-12 inches higher, it’s a touchdown. As for the second, that one may be on DJax. We’ll have to wait for the all-22 to come out, but in real time it appeared as if DJax slowed up towards the end of that route and allowed the safety to get into position to intercept the ball. There are still some timing issues with Evans and DeSean, but overall Winston looked fine. It also would’ve helped had Evans not had three passes go right through his hands...5.) Congratulations Mike Evans. With his first reception Sunday Demar Dotson Jersey , Mike Evans became the Buccaneers’ all time leading receiver. He passed Mark Carrier and is still only 25 years old. By time all is said and done, Evans may put every Bucs’ receiving record out of reach that we don’t see his records broken in our lifetime.6.) 2-3 Is Not A Death Sentence. Coming up, the Bucs face the Browns, Bengals, and Panthers. All are winnable games and can get the Bucs back on track. Even going 2-1 keeps them at .500 and in the postseason hunt. If this defense doesn’t get it together though, these next three games could see every team score over 30 points.Six Numbers To Consider74 - Winston’s career passing touchdowns. Third most in franchise history. 5,063 - Mike Evans’ career receiving yards5 - Jason Pierre-Paul’s season sack total - halfway to that ever elusive double-digit mark-6 - Bucs’ turnover differential this season.94 - Bucs’ opponent’s red zone touchdown percentage0 - Games the Bucs’ defense has allowed fewer than 400 yards this seasonSix Best TweetsSix Things To Be Excited About1.) Jason Pierre-Paul - He’s been a total game wrecker since joining the team. This was definitely a move that Jason Licht can pin to the top of the resume.2.) Chris Godwin - This kid continues to make plays. He’s an emerging star in this league and the perfect compliment to Mike Evans moving forward into the future of this franchise.3.) Lavonte David - This is kind of like cheating since most people already love Lavonte, but his play this season has been extraordinary. On that final Falcons drive he single handedly almost caused a 3-and-out. He’s putting the defense on his back and trying to keep them respectable.4.) Todd Monken - The offense is still performing at a high level. This will only continue as Winston gets more comfortable with Monken’s style of play calling. And they have the weapons to be a top tier unit for years to come.5.) O.J. Howard - This guy. What can you say? Two weeks ahead of his recovery schedule and he was a major factor all game long. There’s a reason he was a first round pick and he’s showing it consistently week in and week out.6.) Mike Evans - Again, this guy is only 25 years old he’s the leading receiver in franchise history. Not only that, but he’s locked up for the foreseeable future. Only good things ahead for that young man.Six Super Bowl Bets1.) Los Angeles Rams - Hands down the best and most complete team in football2.) New England Patriots - Can’t say with any confidence there’s a team in the AFC that can knock them off3.) Kansas City Chiefs - We’ve seen this movie starring Andy Reid before. Enjoy it while it lasts4.) New Orleans Saints - Somehow, their only loss is to the Bucs5.) Pittsburgh Steelers - Starting to click, and with James Connor, who needs Lev Bell?19.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Slowly slipping out of reachSix Final WordsBaker Mania Is Coming To Town
