Agholor, Bourne, Myers, and Henry are dependable players, sure. And all of them are also coming off of career years last year, 3 of them in a contract year, so some regression is also to be expected. But none of them are at the level of the top 4 Bucs receivers, Deonte Harris, or DeVante Parker. Or even Corey Davis for that matter. And the Pats running game is nonexistent right now. It's a very easy offense to shut down, and the scoreboard shows it.People need to slow the “we don’t have anybody to game plan for” roll a bit. No there isn’t a Gronk or Edelman in this group but there are plenty of guys who can make plays there.
Also, the OL still isn’t playing well and they absolutely need to get better. But they’ve played better since the second drive of the second half against the Saints. Some of that is that the Pats have spread it out which has given Mac more options. But they’ve also given him a bit more time. Mac was moving around a bunch last night and took a bunch of hits but he wasn’t running for his life the way we was a week ago even tho the Bucs were bringing pressure on most downs.
