Hurry-Up Offense Slowly Coming?

September 29th, 2009

In a question-and-answer session with Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune, a reader apparently wanting to be a coach suggested that with Josh Johnson at quarterback, the Bucs might be wise to try a hurry-up offense.

Cummings dropped a hint that’s exactly what the Bucs may be doing shortly.

Q: Time is getting somewhat desperate. (The) timing couldn’t be worse with the trip coming up to a Washington team still shaken from a big upset by the Lions.

I think (offensive coordinator Greg) Olson should work on offensive tempo, they showed some signs of life with Josh Johnson in the game and the tempo raised. I think it at least bears investigating when putting together this week’s game plan. Maybe come out with a hurry-up mentality. At the worst, it could shake up this weeks’ opponent.

A: You ought to think about becoming a coach or general manager. Looks like you were on the same wavelength as Raheem and Mark Dominik.
— Roy Cummings

While this would make sense on paper, Joe was under the impression that Raheem the Dream wanted a violent, run-oriented offense? Has the offensive line crumbled this badly?

    You don’t need to pass the ball to be uptempo. The bucs just need to get to the line and run their plays quicker. Keep the defense on their heels.
