The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the final two games of the season with difficult road tests in St. Louis and New Orleans as the development of quarterback Mike Glennon continues into the NFL’s home stretch.  The Buccaneers are currently ranked last in the league in total offense as questions surround the organization as to the direction they will take following the conclusion of the regular season.

Former NFL General Manager Mike Tannenbaum joined WDAE’s “The Sports Page” on Wednesday morning and gave his reasoning for why the Buccaneers offense has sputtered throughout most of the season.

“Typically when things don’t go well you look back and it’s probably a little bit of everything” said Tannenbaum.  “Unfortunately for Tampa this year there’s been some uncertainty at the quarterback position.  Carl Nicks who is a very good difference making offensive lineman, he’s been hurt.  Obviously multiple injuries at the running back position, a confluence of all those things makes it difficult to have sustained success on offense when continuity and reps are so important.”
