Josh McCown frustrated with 0-2 start
by Michael Hurcomb |

Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown didn't hide his frustration Tuesday when talking about Tampa Bay's 0-2 start. 

"It’s awfully frustrating," McCown said Tuesday, per ESPN. "I’m not going to shy away from that. I’m very disappointed. I’m disappointed in myself and just this start. It’s not what anybody wants."

McCown has completed 67.9 percent of his passes, but he has just 362 passing yards and has more interceptions (three) than passing touchdowns (two). He also has quarterback rating of 75.1.

"At the end of the day, you hear about quarterbacks being measured by wins and we’re 0-2," McCown said. "For me, that’s how I evaluate it. I say, 'What could I have done better to help us win the ballgame?’ In both games, I really felt like I did a lot of good things except the three turnovers in those games. Those have been critical."

Josh McCown scores twice on the ground in losing effort
by Igor Mello |

Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown became the first quarterback in franchise history to score twice on the ground since Steve Young, but it wasn't enough as his team fell to the Rams at home, 19-17 in Week 2.

McCown completed his first four passes and scored on a 5-yard scamper on the opening drive of the game. He was picked off by Rodney McLeod in the first quarter but bounced back after halftime, scoring on a bootleg run from 1-yard out in the third quarter. McCown compiled 179 yards through the air while completing 16 of 21 passes. He was picked off once and held out of the end zone, finishing the game with a 81.2 passer rating.

McCown has been held under 200 passing yards in back-to-back games. He'll now have to travel to Atlanta for a Thursday night divisional showdown against the Falcons.

Josh McCown picked off twice in Week 1 loss
by Igor Mello |

Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown threw only one interception in 149 attempts with the Bears last season. He showed some struggles in his first game with his new club and was picked off twice through his first 16 attempts Sunday against the Panthers.

McCown tried to get rid of the ball while he was being taken down, but forced a pass that was tipped and picked off by Antoine Cason in the first quarter. He completed only 3 of 8 passes for 36 yards in the first half. Things didn't get any better in the second half. He bobbled a snap in the third quarter, recovered but only to throw an interception to Roman Harper. He also lost a fumble in the third quarter.

McCown did hook up with Bobby Rainey for a 6-yard touchdown pass with 2:06 remaining in the game. He compiled 183 yards through the air while completing 22 of 35 passes. He added one touchdown and two interceptions in a 20-14 defeat. He was sacked three times and finished with a 71.5 passer rating.

The Buccaneers will host the Rams in Week 2.

Josh McCown dealing with a difficult opening matchup
by Igor Mello |

Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown is ready for his first full season in the league. He'll have to endure a difficult home matchup against Carolina.

Last year, Carolina had one of the units against the pass, limiting quarterbacks to 14.00 Fantasy points per game, second only to Seattle's defense. As a starter last year, McCown had an 11-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio while averaging 308.6 yards in five games. Much of his success last year was due to his big targets to throw to in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Those guys won't be around, but at least he'll have Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans.

With that being said, under Lovie Smith, it's more likely that Tampa Bay will have their offense showcased around Doug Martin. Fantasy owners probably drafted McCown as their No. 2 quarterback leading up to the start of the season. Because he has a difficult matchup, he should be avoided in the majority of standard formats come Week 1.
