  1. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    Agreed. Gerald is part of the losing culture. Vets who don’t know how to win need to go. You still see the fire in Evans and some coming back in Jameis but we are in danger of having that become the case for them too. New coach has to get in here and win fast. Tough task but doable. This team isn’t void of talent.
  2. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    I like Gerald. He’ll probably be in the ROH some day as we have such a prestigious group, but it’s tough to stomach that contract with needing to allocate assets to the OL and secondary.
  3. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    To me that screams game management. How are you that bad in 1 score games?
  4. Mock Drafts

    I appreciate your stance on wanting a new QB and they way you go about that discussion but barring an implosion of Cincinatti proportions one of these last 2 weeks, Jameis will be the QB. With this draft class and a free year of Jameis, I’d be shocked if a first time HC just tossed Jameis aside for one of these major project QBs when QB is far from the problem on this team. I personally think it’s OL or DL/CB. Those get fixed and Jameis isn’t hit 4th most in the NFL and it makes this team a playoff contender.

    Koetter staring off wondering where he’ll coach next year after that play.
  6. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    JPP and Nassib make me feel like we might have good ends in a 4-3 for a few more years. Both were great finds.
  7. Mock Drafts

    It’s agruably our biggest need and there are potential two tackles worth taking. I’d agree that we could use another OL, probably a G in the 3rd, but there is nothing in free agency. Draft is going to be OL and DL/CB.
  8. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    Jameis again proves why he’s gonna stick around. No problem with it if this is the new him.
  9. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that with better defensive coaching our defense has improved with lesser players (injuries). I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that Koetter offenses tend to have have lots of turnovers and up and down QB play, reference Matt Ryan. I wish Koetter well but that’s the handcuff. Volatile offense and poor decision making from a HC perspective. Give me a tough coach like Richard, Campbell or Fangio and hope they can get a coordinator who utalizes quick passing and intermediate routes and this team could look a world different with the same players. We get flashes of it each week like with that TD drive with Barber, it’s just not remotely consistent.
  10. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    Barber is fine at RB. We need better blocking. See what he can do when we get blocking? Fix the OL first.
  11. Possibilities for new coaches

    Yeah Dan Marino sucks. Eli Manning all day.
  12. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    We look so soft. It’s wet. It’s cold. Don’t hit me. Man do we need a coach to come in and give the vast majority of these players a wake up call. We have dropped how many passes today?
  13. 🏈 Week 15: Bucs (5-8) @ Ravens (7-6)

    To continue the OL discussion, new coaching staff next year and we still could solidify the right side of our line. New staff could move Marpet back to his original RG position and put Caapa at RT and then draft a LT and LG. Overall Marpet did his best work at RG. A new GM and HC should see that. Hope Caapa gets some good reps against Baltimore.
  14. Possibilities for new coaches

    Rumor mill followed by preference hire. If the Glazers do hire Richard id have no problem with it. He’s been successful in Seattle and Dallas and the players respond to him. How would he do with new responsibilities as a HC but he’s a good first time HC option as any. We have seen that dominant defense can stop top offense. If Richard can nab a top coordinator then even better. Other first time options like Campbell or Fangio would come ahead of Bieniemy in my eyes so if it was me, the new HC is going to have to find a good OC and hopefully retain him for 2-3 years.
  15. Possibilities for new coaches

    This was a good read on Fangio. He seems to understand offenses are changing. If he brought the defensive and hard nosed mentality to the team and got an innovatice offensive mind that wasn’t afraid to take chances, he could be a winner for a number of years. If he’s in good health who cares that he’s 60.
