The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are having a disappointing season.
Through 13 games the Bucs have a record of 6-7 and are fighting for their playoff lives.
Playing in a division as terrible as the NFC South, the Bucs are somehow still in first place.
But, they have looked nothing like a Super Bowl-contending team all season.
Part of the reason for that has been the inconsistent play of quarterback Tom Brady.
The 45-year-old might be showing some signs of aging after all this time.
The Bucs have one of the worst offenses in the NFL, despite having very good weapons.
They rank 28th in the league in points per game with 17.2.
Brady has thrown 17 touchdown passes in 12 games.
Yet, he once again is leading the league in pass attempts and completions.
But, the Week 14 effort of the Bucs vs the San Francisco 49ers was especially concerning.
San Francisco has arguably the best defense in football, and the Bucs looked lost on offense against them.

There was a point in the third quarter when Tampa Bay trailed 35-0.
Brady finally led them on a scoring drive late in the third quarter once the game was already out of hand.
Ultimately, fans should be worried about Brady and the Bucs after this loss.
Despite how terrible the Bucs have looked this season, they once again looked primed to win the NFC South.
Undoubtedly they will be the fourth seed in the NFC playoffs and will host the first Wild Card team.
The Bucs are not good enough to beat anyone right now.
They have an offense that cannot consistently move the ball.
Also, due to their lack of run game, all the pressure is on Brady to throw it 50+ times.
Tampa Bay looks primed for a one-and-done unless Brady can pull off some more postseason magic this year.
