The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were beat down by the Panthers in Week 1, falling behind 17-0 before crawling back to a 20-14 final score. Ken and Leo have some thoughts about the game as they recap Lovie Smith's first contest in charge in Tampa.

How much blame can we put on the offense for what happened on Sunday? How was Josh McCown's first game as the leader of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

And what about the defense? With promising players on every level, did that unit do enough on Sunday against a backup quarterback?

The guys discuss Mike Johnson, Clinton McDonald, and Adrian Clayborn. Is the pass rush going to doom the Bucs this year? Can they succeed with only Gerald making noise along the line?

Lovie Smith and his decision making are put under the microscope as well. Two Michael Koenen punts are evaluated; were they good decisions?

All that and more on this episode of Bucs Nation Radio.
