Some of those missed opportunities were in the red zone. Ah, yes - those red zone woes coming back to haunt them.Twice on Monday the Bucs had first and goal from the five yard line. Twice the Bucs had to settle for field goals. Twice a drive stalled out shy of the end zone - and either time could have proved to be the game winner.Todd Monken has run an incredible offense thus far and he wasn’t exactly pleased with the red zone efficiency he saw against Pittsburgh. As dominant as Tampa Bay’s offense has been http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-caleb-benenoch-jersey
, there’s always room for improvement;It was baffling to see the Bucs have so many opportunities that close to the end zone yet not see a single target in the direction of Mike Evans who was matched up one-on-one with Coty Sensabaugh - someone Evans easily beats 100 times out of 100 in a jump ball situation.It’s not time to panic. It’s not time to freak out. It’s time to evaluate, reassess, and improve. The Bucs are clicking on offense and building towards a special season - but that doesn’t mean they can’t get better.
