“That Wouldn’t Be The Answer”

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Dirk Koetter has said a couple of times that he wouldn’t get too involved with the Buccaneers defense led by Mike Smith because he’d probably get in the way and wouldn’t add much value to an experienced staff. (more…)

Take a seat, Mr. Anger.

Bryan Anger is one of the better punters in the NFL, but he needs to reduce his workload the rest of this season. The Bucs require maximum possessions to compensate for a historically bad defense.

Ira Kaufman’s 10 Takeaways From Falcons-Bucs
