Left guard The only problem?

June 20, 2022

Bucs banged by a mystery man.

The Bucs are among the favorites to make a Super Bowl run. Tom Brady will do this for a team.

And for the past few years, the Bucs have done a masterful job of team building. But looking at one downside for each team, someone at The33rdTeam.com thinks the biggest (only?) downside for the Bucs isn’t tackling left guard this offseason.

Mistake: Leave the left guard post uncertain

… …Aaron Stinnie – who played just 91 offensive snaps last season – will compete with rookie Luke Goedeke for the starting spot. Ensuring Tom Brady, soon to be 45, has a clean pocket is of the utmost importance in Tampa, and the Buccaneers will find themselves tossing an unproven player inside after having to make tough financial decisions in free agency. .

Joe thinks the Bucs have tackled the left guard position. Aaron Stinnie, some forget, was solid when he started the last three games at right guard in the 2020 playoffs, which ended with the Bucs lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

And the Bucs drafted a left guard (Luke Goedeke) in the second round. Joe does not know how this does not meet a need. Didn’t the drafting of Antoine Winfield or Logan Hall, both second-rounders, meet a need at the time?

Joe understands how people might look at the Bucs roster and wonder about the left guard. But Joe thinks AC/DC-loving Bucs general manager Jason Licht has gained serious credibility on the street and given the benefit of the doubt on offensive line decisions.
