“It’ll Be Marcus Sending The Plays In”September 4th, 2014
It looks like the voice in the ear of Josh McCown on Sunday will be one younger than his.
Addressing media today at One Buc Palace, tight ends coach Jon Embree talked about how things would work without offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford.
He said longtime Tedford sidekick Marcus Arroyo would be the offensive commander-in-chief as part of a collaborative effort.
“It’ll be Marcus sending the plays in,” Embree said.
You can watch all of Embree’s chat here via Buccaneers.com. Embree, however, didn’t rule out Tedford’s return for Sunday.
Tedford has been helping with game planning a bit. Embree offered an example of Tedford coming in solo yesterday– when we’re not around — to the office this week and leaving plays drawn up that he likes against Carolina.
Embree stressed that the Bucs’ offensive staff has been preparing for Carolina for a long time and that Tedford using technology off-site has created a seamless situation.
Joe sure hopes so.
