A Trade To Boost The Bucs? Todd Bowles Isn’t Stoked – JoeBucsFan.com

Bucs coach Todd Bowles.

Forgive Joe for trying to put a smiley face on things and trying to look at the positive because it sure smells like the Bucs are about to take a dive off a cliff.

The Bucs, many have missed, are tied for first place in the woeful NFC South. So despite playing really awful football the past 10 quarters that is so bad it gives Joe ugly flashbacks to the depths of the Lost Decade, the Bucs are not remotely out of a shot at the playoffs.

Granted, right now a wild card berth seems absurd. But the Bucs could still win the division. So might the Bucs go shopping to find players to plug much-needed holes?

Just a couple of hours before the Eagles acquired Pro Bowl defensive end Robert Quinn from the Bears this afternoon for a fourth-round pick, Bucs coach Todd Bowles was asked about getting traded for players before next week’s deadline.

Bowles seemed disinterested.

“If something comes across our table that we’re interested in and we think we can get some value, sure we’ll look at it,” he said.

Now Joe doesn’t know if the losing has gotten Bowles down like it has fans. But dang, c’mon Coach, you don’t seem too eager at a chance to boost your roster to fix things for a playoff run.

Given the talent on the Bucs and having Mr. Tom Brady behind center, the Bucs could be a very, very scary team to face in January. Definitely a dangerous team.

“Value” shouldn’t be the priority. The season has played out to a level that Joe cannot type with any degree of certainty that heads won’t roll after the season. It’s been that bad.

Why not sound eager about plugging gaping holes and maybe securing a division title? Joe would think anyone would understand Team Glazer might not have such an urge to unload people if the Bucs make the playoffs.

F@rt around and miss the playoffs with a losing record (with a healthy Tom Brady)? All bets are off in Joe’s eyes. Who knows what will happen if that happens.

Go get players while you have a shot and make sure missing the playoffs doesn’t transpire. That is unless folks at One Buc Palace have already thrown in the towel on 2022.

The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 pm
