The offense for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked like a well-oiled machine at times last season. While the defense for Bruce Arians’ squad was phenomenal during their Super Bowl run, the offense held their own too.
It was Tom Brady’s first year with the Buccaneers and with the new system. Entering year two under center, star receiver Mike Evans feels even more optimistic about what can be accomplished, via ProFootballTalk.
“We’re miles ahead of what we were last year,” Evans said regarding his work with Tom Brady. “Not just me and his connection, but the whole team, the whole offense. It’s really exciting and hopefully we can do something really special this year.”
If the Buccaneers put up 30.8 points per game a year ago (2nd in the NFL) and Evans believes the offense is even better and more in sync entering this season, it could spell disaster for opposing teams.
Expectations are high again for the Buccaneers in 2021 and anything less than another Super Bowl would be deemed a disappointment. It’s the nature of the beast coming off a championship season and having Brady as the quarterback.
The NFC South went to the New Orleans Saints last year but there was plenty of turnover in the division in the offseason.
Drew Brees retired and in comes Jameis Winston to start for the Saints. The Carolina Panthers went from Teddy Bridgewater to Sam Darnold at quarterback and the Atlanta Falcons are welcoming in new head coach Arthur Smith while Julio Jones was traded in the offseason. The door is wide open for the Buccaneers.
Good luck facing this offense this year.
