“It Takes Great Communication”October 7th, 2013
After hearing Bucs coaches and management talk so much this spring and summer about how challenging the Bucs offense is and how it takes years for a quarterback to master, Joe can’t buy in to the hope/hype that Mike Glennon can be a miracle worker.
Sorry. It’s just far too much to ask of a rookie third-round pick who didn’t get the majority of first-team reps until two weeks ago. Schiano himself even said the Bucs were not simplifying the offense for Glennon.
Success in the Bucs offense “takes great communication” between quarterback and receivers, explains former Bucs tight end Dave Moore, the Buccaneers Radio Network game analyst. Today, Moore used Xs and Os to detail why route running and receiver/quarterback connections are so challenging for Tampa Bay, via the WDAE-AM 620 audio below. It’s nothing new, but Joe thinks it is important to remember the difficulty level of the Bucs offense hasn’t disappeared just because Josh Freeman is gone.
Joe really hopes the New Schiano Order’s scouting and evaluation of Glennon is on the money. Joe’s really not up for the inevitable suffering if it’s not. (Enjoy Dave Moore’s full audio below. He’s always a good listen.)
