Tom Brady says ‘no one feels good’ about Buccaneers’ struggles

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers find themselves under .500 through the first seven weeks of the 2022 campaign.

It’s a far cry from the Super Bowl expectations placed on Tampa once Tom Brady chose to un-retire. Tampa Bay has lost its last three straight games, marking the first time that Brady has been below .500 seven games into a campaign since 2002.

Despite that future first-ballot Hall of Famer has voiced confidence that his team can turn it around.

“No one feels good about where we’re at, no one feels good about how we’ve played or what we’re doing,” said Brady via ESPN.

“We’re all in it together. We’ve gotta go pull ourselves out of it.”

The Buccaneers have dealt with nagging injuries to their wide receiver core while their offensive line has struggled with consistency and health. Even under those circumstances, Tampa Bay remains in a tie for first place in the NFC South.

Brady hasn’t matched anywhere near his production from last season but ranks sixth with 1,942 passing yards, 16th with eight touchdown passes, and 14th with a 53.2 quarterback rating. He has provided consistency, but the lack of production around him hasn’t equated to sustained success.

The running game has been non-existent, ranking last with 64.4 yards per contest, which has put them in an even greater offensive hole, where they are tied for 17th with 17.7 points per game.

The Buccaneers defense has more than held up its own, ranking fifth with 17.7 points per game allowed. Things may look bleak at the moment, but there is plenty of time to figure it out before the playoffs.
