Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith has no answers and could be one-and-done as a head coach in less than two weeks.

Losing two games to the Carolina Panthers was almost expected, but losing both of those games when the Panthers were starting Derek Anderson – a QB who hadn’t started a game since 2010 – and making Anderson look even BETTER than Cam Newton is absolutely unacceptable. The Buccaneers are overflowing with talent: Vincent Jackson, Doug Martin, Mike Evans, Alterraun Verner, Lavontae David – all of them stars, and all of them failing to live up to their potential under head coach Lovie Smith.
The Buccaneers just can’t seem to get anything going in any aspect of the team – and for a team that blew up the franchise to get rid of Greg Schiano, Josh Freeman and others to make room for Lovie Smith, Mike Glennon, Josh McCown and others, the Buccaneers could find themselves set back several years if they can’t get it together. Unfortunately, it might will take a No. 1 overall draft pick to help them get there…
Here are the five worst teams in the NFL heading into Week 16:
5. Washington – Well Robert Griffin III is being given another chance. If he can get a win over the Philadelphia Eagles next week he might have a future in Washington after all.
4. Oakland Raiders – The high-point of this season has been the incredibly quick development of the 2014 draft class. Khalil Mack, Derek Carr and Gabe Jackson are all players the Raiders can build around. The question is: Will they get the coaching and management needed to turn that potential into wins?
3. Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jets fell victim to the Titans quest for the No. 1 overall pick on Sunday. Will the Jaguars be their next victim?
2. Tennessee Titans – Losing to the Jets was bad, really bad. But they haven’t hit rock bottom until they lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars – but considering their QB situation, which now will feature Charlie Whitehurst starting, that rock bottom may be only two days away.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – If Lovie Smith could make Rex Grossman into a Superbowl QB, he deserves a chance to get at least a year or two with either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota. Smith has always been just one great QB performance away from true excellence and shouldn’t have to suffer for only being able to choose between Josh McCown and Mike Glennon.
