Jeff Tedford Remains Out For Health Reasons

August 26th, 2014

Tedford rightJeff Tedford’s offense isn’t the only mystery surrounding the offensive coordinator.

Tedford remains out of action for health reasons and Lovie Smith wasn’t talking about a speedy return today.

“The procedure went well,” Lovie said. “He’s fine, alert, up.”

“Our staff will pull up the slack and we’ll go from there.”

That sure didn’t sound good.

Joe hopes for the best for Tedford, whose ailment hasn’t been disclosed. Tedford was coaching against the Bills on Saturday. Lovie didn’t offer a name when asked today who would run the offense in Tedford’s absence.

    Thoughts and prayers.

    “Alert”? Not exactly the word you would use for a person recovering from a minor procedure.

    Joe,

    Who takes over the OC duties while Tedford is out? I know you mention other coaches “pull up the slack”. But who leads the meetings now?

  4. Architek Says:

    Praying for him! We need him!

  5. Orca Says:

    Thinking Marcus Arroyo becomes the playcaller. Seems to be Tedford’s protegé.

  6. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Probably a heart bypass. If it went well, then he should be back at work in a week or two.

    Dissecting Lovie’s comments for the true meaning is futile. It’s all just coach babble to me.

    Get well coach… this team really needs you.

  8. Kevin#1 Says:

    We need this guy or we are screwed….SCREWED!!!!!!! I hope he is ok…

    YA JOE, WHO TAKES RESPONSIBILITY NOW THAT TEDFORD WILL BE OUT FOR SOME TIME. CAN YOU THINK OF THE NEXT BATTER UP?

  10. Brandon Says:

    It has to be Arroyo. He’s called plays before, in college, but then again, that’s the highest level Tedford has called plays. Only thing is, under Arroyo, his teams usually weren’t very good on offense….of course talent is the ultimate factor in coaching effectiveness.

    Get Well, Mr.Tedford. I hope you are improving.
    This is , of course, a major Concern. With the Limited Info we have right now- the best we can do is send our prayers and good Wishes.

    Will be glad to have you back, Sir. You are part of the Buccaneer family now.

    Might have been an Optal Recto-me

    That’s where they sever the cord between your optic center and your asshole to get rid of your Shiite outlook

    I think he went nuts after Lovie said McCown was starting over Mike Cannon.
