Greg Schiano can yell all he wants, but his team has been a letdown this year.
For many fans of the Buccaneers, four wins in five games is enough to win back the trust lost during an eight-game losing streak.
But the truth about this Tampa Bay franchise at the moment is that there is a long way left before it can be considered a contender.
The Buccaneers wasted an assortment of chances Sunday, and as Sander Philipse of Bucs Nation pointed out during the game, Tampa Bay was getting great field position on a regular basis and could not turn any drives into points.
So much like the victory over the Detroit Lions, the Buccaneers benefited from a comedy of errors and barely held on to secure a win. The offense is stagnant at best, and the team continues to make mental errors and commit costly penalty at the wrong times.
Greg Schiano and Mike Glennon both have quite a bit to prove before I can say they're deserving of keeping their roles in 2014. Schiano's teams have been outcoached on far too many occasions to allow the thumping of a struggling team to sway my opinion.
And likewise for Glennon, the inability to move the football against a middle-of-the-road passing defense does not inspire confidence.
The Buccaneers can be happy with the final score, but they cannot be proud of the way they played nor the way the season has unfolded.
