in general, Tampa Bay Bucs

Jerry Angelo is a former personnel director for the Bucs and former general manager of the Bears. Each week, Angelo answers your questions regarding the NFL. Send your questions to with "ask the expert'' in the subject line. The most interesting question will be selected.

Another day, another meek performance by the Bucs' offense. What do you think Tampa Bay is going to have to do to fix its eternal problems on that side of the ball? Why has it been so hard?

First and foremost, they have to have the guy under center who can execute without turning the ball over. Turnovers kill all offenses, particularly ones that are predicated on the run, as are the Bucs.

Other than turnovers, what makes running an offense so hard is you have to have balance between the run and pass. You can’t be one dimensional. It makes it easy for defenses, because most defenses can take away one phase of an offense.
