Wholesale Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys

It’s pretty evident that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled to live up to their potential and high offseason expectations in 2017. The Bucs finished 5-11 in one of the most disappointing seasons this team has had in years after being deemed a surefire pick to notch a ticket to the playoffs. Meanwhile, a few hours north of Tampa Bay, the Jaguars managed to make a playoff run and found quite a bit of success after finishing their 2016 campaign 3-13.

So, Jags linebacker Telvin Smith recently weighed in on the difference between the Bucs and Jaguars and why the Bucs were unfortunately unable to make a comeback like they did.

“I am telling you that is how you know this game is crazy,” Smith said, according to Mark Cook of PewterReport.com. “Everybody saying when they [the Buccaneers] came in [to Jacksonville] ‘That is a playoff team, they added a couple pieces.’ But it is hard to say. You just have to get the right pieces, and each season is its own. You don’t go into next season saying, ‘Yeah that is the same team.’ Every year it is a different team, a different attitude. You will never have the same guys. But sometimes one guy can make all the difference.”

The Jaguars made all the right moves last offseason to ensure they have a much better outcome this year. From landing Leonard Fournette, to hiring Doug Marrone as head coach all the way to signing Calais Campbell, the Jaguars made waves this year. Though the Bucs did acquire many of their own weapons such as O.J. Howard, Chris Godwin and DeSean Jackson, the pieces still aren’t gelling as well as they need to be together at this time which is something that takes time and is something that will undoubtedly be addressed.
