The Tampa Bay Buccaneers preseason loss to the Dolphins brought with it some good performances, but there also were players who didn’t perform.

Here’s three players that disappointed Saturday night.

Mike Glennon

After a very good performance against the Jaguars last week, Glennon was poor in week 2. He finished 6-of-12 for 77 yards and while he didn’t throw an interception, he didn’t throw a touchdown either. However, he should have had one but Mike Evans fumbled at the one-yard line costing the Bucs seven points. Glennon however didn’t move the offense and couldn’t even get the Bucs into position to try a field goal. To cap it off, he also fumbled.

Kadeem Edwards

The Bucs’ rookie guard had a poor showing as he failed to generate any kind of push and give the quarterback time in the pocket. Furthermore, he was also flagged for a holding call and was soundly beat by the defensive lineman on a few occasions. Guard is the Bucs’ worst position, meaning that it’s someone’s job to step up and stake a claim to be the starter in week 1, Edwards failed to do that Saturday night.

Anthony Gaitor

Gaitor played just 15 snaps but was ineffective. He failed to record a stat and was at fault for the Dolphins touchdown with eight seconds left in the first half. He was beaten on a fade and didn’t get turned around in time and by the time he did Rishard Matthews had put seven on the board. The Bucs are dealing with injuries at cornerback right now so the team’s back-ups are going to continue to get playing time and they must show that they are ready to step into the line-up.
