The disconnect between coaches and quarterback is evident

They won’t say it publicly, but all you have to do is look at the playcalling and listen to the press conferences to know something is going on.  It’s already been discussed and debated as to why the Buccaneers did not call a pass play on a third-and-7 inside the redzone.
