Throughout the 2019 season, Bruce Arians made it known that he wasn’t pleased with the amount of turnovers his offense had on a weekly basis. Tampa Bay owned a 7-9 record, which was the second-best record in the NFC South.
Major changes could be on the way for the NFC South. Instead of re-signing James Winston in free agency, the Buccaneers won the Tom Brady sweepstakes.
Even though Arians has a new signal-caller at his disposal, that won’t stop him from throwing a parting shot at his former quarterback.
When asked about the biggest reason why the Buccaneers didn’t make the playoffs in 2019, Arians said “We didn’t get enough turnovers and we turned the ball over way to much.”

It’s not hard to tell that Arians was frustrated with the amount of interceptions that Winston threw in 2019.
Winston led the league with 30 interceptions. For comparison’s sake, Brady only threw eight interceptions this past season.
Tampa Bay should have a much more efficient offense this fall. However, the coaching staff shouldn’t dismiss the fact that Winston has a stronger arm than Brady at this stage in their careers.
Do you think the Buccaneers will be much better in 2020 with Brady under center?
