Is Jason Licht Craving The “X-Factor”

April 2nd, 2014
Will Jason Licht heed the words of his former teammate, Kurt Warner?

Will Jason Licht heed the words of his former teammate, Kurt Warner?

Regardless of who actually has final say on the Buccaneers’ draft picks, it’s clear general manager Jason Licht will have at least a very loud voice in the process. And given that fact, it’s interesting to note that much of Licht’s 19-year NFL career was spent around four historic giants of the quarterback position.

Is Licht really a guy who’s going to be ok going to battle with unproven Josh McCown and/or Mike Glennon?

Joe likes McCown, but there’s not a Bucs fan on earth who wouldn’t have ordered Joe or any other fan to a mental institution at the suggestion of McCown leading the 2014 Bucs offense at this time last year. It would have been thoroughly unthinkable. And did five starts in Chicago really change that significantly?

Licht entered the NFL and spent two years scouting and coaching with the Dolphins when Dan Marino was the alpha dog in the locker room and on the field. Licht went on to New England and Tom Brady and the Super Bowl before heading to Philadelphia. He was a VP for player personnel there and headed to the Super Bowl with Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid. Then Licht was off to Arizona and experienced the man Joe’s heard from various NFL types described as the ultimate leader and “x-factor” quarterback, Kurt Warner, who led the Cardinals to the Super Bowl that season. Then it was back to New England again to serve as one of Bill Belicheat’s chieftains.

Joe can’t imagine Licht not demanding the Bucs draft the best quarterback they can in 2014. Anything thing else would seem to go against his football DNA.

Warner, now a top NFL Network analyst, was on the tube today getting pinned down to name his top quarterbacks in the 2014 draft. It’s no surprise to Joe that Warner said his evaluation shows Johnny Football edges Teddy Bridgewater for top-dog status.

Warner says Johnny Football has the critical “x-factor” needed to win games and be successful in the NFL, though Warner has questions about Johnny Football’s abilities in the pocket in the NFL. A film-only review, Warner said, would lead him to draft Bridgewater before any other QB, saying Bridgewater has “has great pocket presence. Did the most when things were around him in the pocket. Played in a pro-style offense.”

Of course, Joe has no clue whether either of those two quarterbacks will be available to the Bucs with the No. 7 overall pick. It would be nice if one was, and there’s at least a chance.

All Joe’s saying is that 2014 likely represents the best (and smartest) opportunity for Licht to make a move to get a premier quarterback prospect. His history, combined with the Bucs’ current stable of QBs, would suggest he’s very eager to pounce.

    “Warner says Johnny Football has the critical “x-factor”

    I’m guessing that’s the oh-so-important ability to “pull” i.e. get your picture taken with lots of girls.

  4. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Bridgewater had a bad Pro Day, and it was said he does not have an elite arm.
    Manziel has a cannon for an arm, and they say he is one of the most accurate deep ball throwers some scouts have ever seen, except RG 3.
    Bridgewater might still be there, but if Tampa is to draft Johnny Football, we will probably need to move up to do so.

  5. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    Can someone reset the clock for the next Johnny Football story. We made it 1 day since the last reset.

    _______________________________________________________________

    Considering there are NO premier QB prospects, not sure how its his best (and smartest) chance. And funny story but its not his smartest. He drafts a QB and if that QB is deemed a bust within 2 years, well, Licht is deemed fired. Drafting OLine or receiver has never gotten a GM fired. Drafting a bust QB? Oh thats a guaranteed fired.

    *sigh*….do I have to tell him who had the best pro day ever?

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    His history showed a worked for teams that had good QB’s. To Joe that translates into wanting QB’s being in Licht’s DNA. Although he played no part what-so-ever in drafting any of those QB’s. Oh so your saying surely he saw what a good QB could do for a team so therefore…

    Whatever helps you sleep at night Joe. It’s in his DNA. Keep telling yourself that Joe.

  9. Firethecannons Says:

    Wait, you think Manziel is the best QB in the draft? Since when?

  10. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Manziel? Never heard of him.

  11. brandonbucfan Says:

    When we first heard about the “team’ of L&L we were told that Lovie would have the final say on the 53 man roster and Licht over the draft. With this article, as much as I want a WR (as I mentioned earlier this am) I can see Licht taking a QB. Now, it all depends who is there when we pick.4 teams to be worried about..Houston, Jax,Cleveland and Minnesota (who could jump ahead of us). If Johnny,Teddy and Blake are gone trade down to Buffalo or the Giants and they can still get another QB Tedford would love to have..Carr…WOW opening night of Draft day
    will be huge for the BUCS as there will be a lot of suspense.

    Could this be possible? Never say never!

  13. zam Says:

    “Play great” does not equal “evaluate great”. Not even close. More important what Dick Vermeil and Ken Whisenhunt think, than Kurt Warner.

  14. T in Orlando Says:

    One point about Licht’s past and QB’s with that “x-factor”, half of them were not top draft picks. Given previous statements about seeing franchise QBs, not necessarily in the first, perhaps there’s one or two guys that Licht feels can be had in Day 3, that have exactly what he’s looking for, and if he’s right, he looks like a genius, and if wrong, they didn’t use anything higher than a 4th round pick on a QB, so if other picks are solid, then this doesn’t look so bad.

    I’ve officially gone from Anti-Manziel to, “not my first choice, but would be intrigued if we drafted him”. At this point May 8th can’t get here soon enough.

  15. Couch Fan Says:

    I keep hearing “There is no premiere QB in this class” quite often as if its fact BUT the only way this is fact is if you know what Licht is thinking. Nobody here in these comments know what Licht is thinking. He could love Johnny Boy for all we know.

    Don’t be surprised is all I’m saying. Licht/Lovie would be an absolutely fool to go into the season with a 34 year old career back up as the starter. Completely foolish. That’s assuming they dont believe in Glennon which it appears they dont.

  16. Buc1987 Says:

    Well the Pats are bringing in Johnny for a visit. So I guess if Tampa doesn’t do the same. That might mean that they are not interested in the little boy wonder.

  17. Jordan Says:

    I have yet to see a mock that shows the Rams taking a QB with the 2nd overall pick. The more I look into the situation, the more I am beginning to think that they are in a perfect position to grab a top QB. They haven’t had a winning season since 2003, and Bradford has led them to 4 losing seasons as their starter. Their head coach didn’t select Bradford, and they can cut him and save 22 million in Cap space for this year and the next. Additionally, it appears that the majority of his 50 million guaranteed money has already been paid out. Do not sleep on the Rams!!! They can grab Manziel/Bridgewater and then still select a top 2/3 OL or WR with the 13th pick.

  18. Bobby M. Says:

    If the “x” factor was that important and pocket presence could be shrugged off, Tim Tebow would at least be in the league….

    It’s funny how all the draft analyst concentrate so much on “pocket presence” or “will to win” aka “x factor”, yet none ever examine work ethic. The QB position requires “grinders”, guys so focused on winning they simply will out work their peers. Those are the guys that you want to bet on and you can find them in rounds 1-7 evidenced by T. Brady, D. Brees, R. Wilson, C. Kaepernick, N. Foles, M. Schaub, A. Dalton……That’s 5 SB rings and a ton of playoff appearances for a group of guys many others would have called “quality backups”

    Well then it’s working for you Joe. The more you keep hammering away at the same damn thing. The more people will start to believe you are right.

  20. SAMCRO Says:

    Of course this whole article was predicated on Joe hoping Licht reads this “I don’t have an agenda” Johnny Football lovefest campaign. It’s so blatantly apparent Joe is trying to sway brass decisions, but what is really laughable is the high possibility that if Johnny Football falls on his face, and the new regime is unemployed, Joe will have crawled back into his little corner of the web claiming they had no culpability in their role of putting Manziel on a pedestal. Let up a little Joe, you’re smothering everyone.

  21. zam Says:

    I love how many ppl are really staking their reputations that Johnny Football is going to be a star player or an also-ran. Makes for a very interesting off-season.

  22. T in Orlando Says:

    @ Buc1987

    Actually, I tire of Joe’s Man-crush on Johnny Football probably about as much as others who complain about it.

    I do read/watch other media outlets to form my opinion, not just the blog (albeit a blog I enjoy) of a couple Bucs fans.

  23. phil Says:

    I have no interest in seeing us getting Bridgewater but we should do everything possible to get Manziel. I wouldn’t mind if we traded this years number one and next years number one so we can move up to get Johnny Football. This guy is a real difference maker and you can see how is teammates respond to him and he makes them believe that they always have a chance to win the way a Tom Brady or a Russell Wilson can. There is no one else in this draft that can do that.

  24. BucsQcCity Says:

    Palmer in Arizona seems to work well for them..

  25. Ryan CO Says:

    You know, I’m not the biggest Manziel fan but come on people, Joe is just speculating, its not like he pulls the trigger come draft day. Couple that with the results of free agency and its not unrealistic to think Johnny Football or Teddy Bridgewater are still there at #7. You all may not like Manziel but whos to say he is going to start immediately? Lovie sounds relatively sold on McCown for the short term. I think it would be stupid to not take a QB if they fall to 7 regardless of which of the two it is, more QBs on roster=higher chance of success with one of them

  26. bucrightoff Says:

    ^ The fact that since 2009 only Josh Freeman and Tim Tebow were drafted in the first round and didn’t start right away…and Freeman still started 7 games is rookie season. Make no mistake, if a QB is drafted at #7 it is to start right away. Also drafting a first round QB means instant controversy as the fans will demand the rookie start and McCown go to the bench. That factor alone means the pick will be OLine, DLine, or God-willing Mr. Watkins.

  27. Mumbles Says:

    Don’t know if we can win with Johnny Football, but the games will be must-see TV. Exciting!

  28. tmaxcon Says:

    All you glennon lovers bashing joe about the ‘it factor” and the fact johnny football can “pull” need to take a look at past history. Arguably the 2 best qb’s in my lifetime and MULTIPLE Superbowl WINs were outstanding at pulling the ladies. Tom Brady (Nice list of Actresses and Super Models) and Joe Montana (one of the original super models and famous Jordache Jeans girl)… I’ll leave Multiple superbowl winning rapistburger out of the discussion based on his alleged violations.

    Since the bucs have ties to 3 of the 5 worst QB’s to ever win a superbowl (Williams, Dilfer and Johnson) It’s time to bring in a rockstar with the it factor. It does matter.

    The one exception to the pull rule is Tannehill in miami he has the hottest and coolest wife in the NFL not to mention she is a card caring member of the NRA and can out shoot most men. Kurt Warner does not count since he went cougar hunting before it was trendy.

    Nothing personal against Mr. Glennon but he was clearly the dorkiest qb and most awkward looking when escaping the pocket and he lead the WORST (32) rated offense in the NFL last year.

    Folks not that joe needs to be defended he does an admirable job himself but the numbers speak for themselves. IT factor eaquals multiple super bowls. Let’s not forget the King of the IT factor Broadway Joe he should have never won a superbowl with just his talent the IT factor took over and led his team to victory.

  29. Barry Says:

    I may of heard him wrong, but didn’t Licht say MG8 reminded him of Tom Brady?

  30. nate Says:

    Did any1 watch clowney today he was beast also the bucs were talking to him alot at his pro day…..i think hes the pick lovie went to asuperbowl with sexy rexy y not josh….

  31. tmaxcon Says:

    Barry… Tom Brady has never lead the WORST offense in the NFL… Brady’s name should never be mentioned in the same sentence with Brady.

  32. Bucs fan in NC Says:

    An exciting new QB (neither McCown nor Glennon are exciting) to go with our exciting new defense and our exciting new uniforms (yes they will look MUCH better on game day than they did in that first photo shoot), Bring on Johnny Football!!

  33. lightningbuc Says:

    So now “pulling” isn’t just something that some of us are jealous of, it is now a required attribute to be a Super Bowl caliber QB?

    This is truly the Theater of the Absurd!

  34. tmaxcon Says:

    The blind loyalty and excuses people make for Glennon is equally absurd. Glennon has a better chance of staring in a remake of Revenge of the nerds than he does staring in nfl yet the same group day after day on this site make excuses for the leader of the WORST offense in NFL how is that not absurdity? Yes I was being stupid with post above but don’t discount the IT factor. Winners have IT and excuse makers aka losers do not.

  37. lightningbuc Says:

    Tom Brady threw 3 passes his rookie year. Joe Montana threw 23. NO ONE knew if they had the “it” factor after their first season, and NO ONE can tell if any rookie QB has the “it” factor after just one season. It is pure speculation on their part if they tell you otherwise.

    Why move up to draft Manziel when there are better quarterbacks coming out next year? Stay pat, draft BPA and see if Glennon is progressing or not. Or draft qb later and develop him. Then next year have a full complement of pics and then we can move up and pounce on a real franchise qb.

  44. tmaxcon Says:

    Thank you couchfan. I find the excuses and blind loyalty equally as entertaining. It’s even more entertaining how many people actually take themselves so seriously on an entertainment / fan blog.

  45. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Dan Marino? Let’s see he won how many Super Bowls in his career? ZERO!

    He at least made the big show once in the beginning of his career but one Super Bowl appearance in an entire career. Was Marino a great passer?
    Absolutely. A great Q.B. For the ages. Well his numbers are HOF for sure but I still think he was overated as a “player”. Yes he could throw the ball as well as anybody. But have you ever heard this man speak. He’s a true dullard. He’s not a bright man.

    Again. Q.B. is the most important position on the team. I truly get that. But at the end of the day football is a TEAM sport. Marino illustrates clearly that a great throwing arm doesn’t always get the job done.

    McCown does not have to duplicate Marino or Elway or Manning. He ONLY needs to be Brad Johnson or Trent Dilfer or Joe Flacco.

    I’m not saying he’ll reach even those standards, he may be another Jeff Garcia, competent but not enough to reach the SB. I’m not afraid however to experiment with McCown to find out if he’s the next Rich Gannon or the next Byron Leftwich.

  46. stevek Says:

    Licht told Florio that he will draft “BPA”.

    If we stick at #7:

    1. Clowney
    2. Robinson
    3. Mack
    4. Mathews
    5. Watkins
    6. Donald
    7. Lewan

    Not one of them is Johnny-Joe’s ManCrush.

  50. Patrick in VA Says:

    Half of the QB giants that Licht has been exposed to working with were drafted in the sixth round or not at all. That half are the only two that have won a super bowl. No doubt he puts a premium on the position but I think he understands that just because they pundits like a guy that doesn’t mean you have to get your QB in the first round

  51. c-spann Says:

    i may be the only person that thinks bridgewater is the better QB. I have seen him play and watched highlight after highlight. he just translates better to the pro level than JF. tape dont lie

    Bring on Mack or Watkins with our first rounder. Safer bets

  54. Eric Says:

    Sure there are some examples of winning the SB without the great QB, like the Bucs and Ravens.

    But by a huge margin the great QB’s win a lot more of them.

    Elway, Brady, Mannings, Montana, Young, Aikman, Brees, etc etc etc

    Why not take the route much more likely to succeed?

    I don’t get the “We only need our QB to be as good as Dilfer” crowd.

  55. gatrbuc17 Says:

    There are really very few things I’ve seen in my life that have been sadder than the back and forth about Manziel’s ability to “pull” as compared to the people on this site. For one, Manziel being pictured and seen out with all of those women is branding. The guy is making sure that he’s set up to land that big Axe body spray campaign as soon as he’s drafted. Secondly, this is a bunch of chest thumping, middle aged male bravado from a demographic (sports blog commenters) that’s maybe a notch above star wars geeks on the scale of groups known for their conquests with the ladies.

  83. Owlykat Says:

    I listened to Warner today on CBS Sport’s Radio and he was asked what QB he would take in the first round. He admitted he likes Manzel but said he would only pick him for an established program. But he wouldn’t do so for a struggling team, because Manzel would get killed. He also said he is 6’2″ and he found he had to find windows to throw and Manzel is smaller than he is–not really an endorsement for Manzel for us with our OL still learning the offense and how to play together. As to Licht wanting a QB in the first round, I sure hope that is right, but Licht has moved from one team to another after thinking he could pick a later round QB to become their Franchise QB like he did long ago with Brady, but his QB picks kept bombing, making him a nomad despite his being talented picking other positions. I just hope he has learned his lesson and will change his luck with a first pick QB–but notice it was Lovie at Manzel’s Pro Day. I did not see Licht there. It may take Lovie and Tedford to talk Licht into it!

    IT ONLY PROVES ONE THING. YOU ARE NOT SAFE TRYING TO OUT RUN PEOPLE TWICE YOUR SIZE AND ALMOST AS FAST.
