Tale Of Two Lines

December 9th, 2018

Bucs GM Jason Licht

It’s easy to give Dirk Koetter a failing grade, which is why Joe fully expects a new head coach at One Buc Palace in three short weeks.

But what about general manager Jason Licht? Today was a perfect example of why it’s challenging to grade the guy. [read more]

One reason why seat ablaze.

Joe isn’t stepping out on a limb to suggest after the Bucs blew a 14-3 halftime lead today and got totally shut down in the second half in a 28-14 loss to the Saints, that several jobs are now in peril. [read more]

Special Teams Meltdown

December 9th, 2018

Joins the crappy kickers club.

Ah, the Tampa Bay area. It offers so much. Where does the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Area Convention & Visitors Bureau begin?

“Come for the beaches… come for the weather… come for the beautiful women with limited clothing… come for the garbage NFL kicking!”

“You Can’t Have That Many Hits”

Scolds offensive line.

The people who love to scream about the Bucs offensive line at fault for everything from the outbreak of the Ebola virus to Brexit got some ammunition from Bucs coach Dirk Koetter today. [read more]

Bad Jameis “Body Language” With A “Flat” Offensive Line

December 9th, 2018

“Dancing around”

Joe remains stunned how a quarterback in Year 4 working in the same system could look as shaky as America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, did in the second half today.

Saints 28, Buccaneers 14

December 9th, 2018

“I’m gonna miss you, G.”

Ugly, ugly, ugly loss today by the Buccaneers.

Special teams killed them and the offense didn’t do them any favors.

And they got sloppy with an array of dumb penalties when they needed to show poise. Yes, the Bucs imploded, a signature of Dirk Koetter era, which likely will be an afterthought in a matter of days. [read more]

Go Bucs!
