I seriously feel like Daniel Kaluuya’s character in “Get Out” these days

I’m watching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play football. Myself and many others are currently lost in the sunken place. The Bucs lost in the Meadowlands on Sunday. It was the New York Giants’ first home win of the season. That sentence right there should tell how this week’s grades are going to shape out. OffenseAs has been the case all year Cheap Donovan Smith Jersey , the offense was extremely inconsistent early on in the game. Turnovers put the Bucs in a hole and the offense had to rally furiously behind Jameis Winston in order to stage a comeback. Yep, it was Winston who was on the field as the clock ran out the final seconds of the game. Not Ryan Fitzpatrick. Poor play from the Bearded Wonder led to his second benching of the season. Entering halftime, the Bucs were down just 14-7. Fitzpatrick had already thrown one interception at this point and was very inconsistent, but the team was still in the game. That all changed as soon as the Bucs received the ball to start the second half. It took just two passes from Fitzpatrick before the defense was able to nab their second pick of the game. This time, it went the other direction for six points. Nothing changed on the next drive. Under heavy pressure, Fitzpatrick just lobbed one up into the end zone that was picked off. The turnovers doomed the Buccaneers, again. It wiped out a very good performance from Winston off the bench, a great game by Mike Evans, and another good performance from Peyton Barber. If it just weren’t for the damn turnovers. Tampa Bay finished 6/9 on third down, recorded 31 first downs Peyton Barber Jersey , and went 4/5 in the red zone which included a 4/4 line in goal-to-go situations. But you can’t keep making the same mistakes and expect everyone to just ignore them. Final Grade: 1.0 (D) DefenseJust like the offensive side of the ball, it’s the same old story with the defense. A terrible first quarter combined with no offensive help gave the Giants an early 14-0 lead. They finished with a season-high 139 yards in the first quarter. Eli Manning completed 11 straight passes at one point. Saquon Barkley couldn’t be stopped. The unit did find some footing in the second quarter despite giving up an early touchdown. Carl Nassib and Jason Pierre-Paul combined for a big sack that was a big momentum killer. The team finished with four sacks on the day, so the Bucs were able to get pressure, but the defense just couldn’t hold up for the entirety of the game. Two late touchdowns in the fourth quarter put the final nail in the coffin. The Bucs gave up an average of 6.8 yards per play, 5.3 yards per rush, and 359 total yards of offense - not to mention 31 points. Final Grade: 1.5 (D)Special TeamsHoly Cairo Santos! No missed extra points!The new Buccaneer didn’t get a chance to attempt a field goal, but that’s ok because the team was scoring touchdowns. I’ll take that excuse all day. The only issue with Santos was the fact that he couldn’t put the ball through the end zone on kickoffs which led to some decent returns by the Giants. Regardless, outside of Santos, the special teams didn’t see much action. Bryan Anger punted the ball just once all day. The coverage teams played well and didn’t allow many big plays despite being put in troublesome situations on the kickoff returns. Final Grade: 3.0 (B) CoachingI hate to say this, because I like Dirk Koetter as a person. This staff cannot be in Tampa Bay in 2019. There have been two common threads all season - turnovers and bad defense - and nothing has improved in either area.This is a coaching problem. No other way around it. Mark Duffner is doing what he can and at times he has looked very competent Cheap Justin Evans Jersey , but he hasn’t done enough to save his job next year, eitherThe only two that should be given consideration to stick around are Todd Monken and Brentson Buckner. Outside of them, expect major turnover at the top in 2019. Final Grade: 0.0 (F) Overall Grade: 1.38 (D) The one good thing about this crappy season is that it is in fact making me a better writer. It’s tough to write about the same dumb mistakes every week and make it feel fresh. That’s the only good thing to come out of this season. Overall Grade For The 2018 Season: 1.93 (D)Around the NFC South: Week one The Buccaneers opened their 2018 season with a huge shootout win over the division rival Saints. The victory was Tampa Bay’s second straight over New Orleans and it put Dirk Koetter and his team atop the NFC South standings through one week. Here, we’ll look at what else went on in the division during the season’s opening weekend.Carolina Panthers (1-0)The Panthers started their season off on the right foot with a 16-8 home win over the Cowboys. There obviously wasn’t a lot of scoring to go around, with the Carolina defense stifling Dak Prescott and Dallas. The unit allowed just 232 total yards, with the eight points coming on a fourth-quarter touchdown and two-point conversion after the Panthers already had a 16-0 lead. Cam Newton opened the scoring in the second quarter with a four-yard touchdown run before Graham Gano made a 27-yard field goal to go up 10-0. Alex Armah scored on a one-yard touchdown run to pad the lead early in the fourth, but 16 points was more than enough for the defense.Newton was Carolina’s leading rusher, going for 58 yards and a score on 13 carries. He added 161 passing yards on 17-of-26 passing. Luke Kuechly was the game’s leading tackler with 13 (11 solo), while the rest of the defense combined for six sacks. Kawann Short had two, Mario Addison and Wes Horton both had 1 1鈦? and Shaq Thompson had one. Up Next: at Atlanta Falcons (0-1)Atlanta Falcons (0-1)The Falcons opened their season in Philadelphia on Thursday night Buccaneers Caleb Benenoch Jersey , falling 18-12 to the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. It was a low-scoring affair, with former Buc Matt Bryant being the difference in the first half. After Atlanta led 6-3 at halftime on two field goals by Bryant, Jay Ajayi put the Eagles on top 10-6 early in the third quarter. Tevin Coleman later answered with a nine-yard touchdown run early in the fourth to give the Falcons a 12-10 lead. They held onto that two-point advantage until late, but Ajayi scored again with 2:19 left to give the Eagles an 18-12 lead. Matt Ryan led his offense down the field and inside the 10 of Philly in the game’s final seconds, but the offense stalled out due to some questionable red zone play-calling and a couple of bad throws.Ryan completed just 21 of his 43 passes for 251 yards and tossed one interception. Julio Jones kept Ryan and the offense afloat in the best way he could, catching 10 passes for 169 yards. As if the close loss wasn’t enough, the defense will now be without safety Keanu Neal for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL.Up Next: vs. Carolina Panthers (1-0)New Orleans Saints (0-1)Buccaneer fans know exactly what went on with the Saints on Sunday. New Orleans came out hot offensively, but its defense couldn’t slow down Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay offense. The two teams traded scores early, but a 17-14 lead early in the second quarter was the last lead of the day for the defending division champs. After the Bucs put up 17 straight points, the Saints countered with a touchdown before halftime. But their defense couldn’t hold up in the second half and the offense slowed in the third quarter. Tampa Bay went on another 17-0 run to take a commanding 48-24 lead. Drew Brees tried to lead a big comeback Buccaneers Ryan Jensen Jersey , but fell short in what turned out to be a 48-40 loss.Brees was magnificent on Sunday, throwing for 439 yards and three touchdowns on 37-of-45 passing. Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara were unstoppable in the passing game, with Thomas setting a Saints record for receptions (16) in a 180-yard, one-touchdown day. Kamara scored two touchdowns on the ground, but also caught nine passes for 112 yards and a score.Up Next: vs. Cleveland Browns (0-0-1)
