Opinion: The Bucs will never beat good teams if they don’t stop making stupid mistakes

Raise your hand if you think Sunday’s matchup against the Saints looked familiar.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the game, I’m referring to the nine penalties for 103 yards and three turnovers committed by the Bucs. The Bucs’ incredible ability to not just give away free yards, but the ball as well, is nearly unmatched in the NFL.

Tampa Bay led the league in penalties last year. At the time of this publication, they are tied for the league lead through Week 1. Overcoming penalties is hard enough, but the Bucs somehow find a way to make overcoming them even harder through the context in which they commit penalties.
