Offensive Coaches Better Update Their Resumes

"Good thing Greg Olson is catching all the hell. Otherwise, people might start calling me out."

The Bucs offense has been a train wreck from the word “go” this season. The thought of that putrid performance last week against the Jets makes Joe want to kick the empty Caybrew bottles across his living room.

Offensive coordinator Greg Olson doesn’t want to run the ball. Michael Clayton (when he does play) doesn’t want to catch. King of Turds doesn’t want to block.

Joe could go on but you get the idea.

It’s because of this Connie Chung-offense that Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune believes there may be massive changes to the Bucs offensive coaching staff in 2010.

Q: I highly question the wisdom of Morris’ plan to “establish the running game.” Why, after 13 games of mediocracy does he believe that within the next week or two he can create an new identity for the team whose identity has been established as one of ineptness? Morris and company seem overwhelmed and unable to right the ship. Does the present coaching staff have the knowledge, skills, understanding and experience to bring about the necessary changes to make this a winning team in 2010?

A: I’m not sure we have the answer to your question yet. All we can go by is the results we’ve seen so far and they’re not encouraging. However, the defense is playing better since Raheem took over and the team seemed to draft rather well last year. Going by that you could certainly make an argument for Raheem and Mark Dominik to stay. Still, some changes will have to be made. The offense has been the biggest disappointment. I think that’s where heads will roll, if heads roll.

The Bucs offense has been so horrid of late, it’s enough to flare up Joe’s acid reflux. While Joe was quick to point out how horrible defrocked defensive coordinator Jim Bates was, and how rotten offensive coordinator Greg Olson’s play-calling has been, Joe seems to think offensive line coach Pete Mangurian is getting a pass for a unit that has grossly underperformed this season.

    I had no idea Jeff Goldblum was working on the Bucs staff. That explains a lot.
