The Bucs made a multitude of mistakes on both sides of the ball in their loss at home to the Saints. Between bad play calling, sloppy performances and a lack of involvement from their best players, the Bucs looked lethargic.

Just how bad is this team? We know they have talent but some of the mistakes they make are head scratching. At this point, it’s fair to question whether Jason Licht or Bruce Arians will be here next season.

The refs aren’t off the hook either as they made a very bad call on Mike Evans. We break all that down plus much more, so stay tuned for this brand new episode.
