“One Of The Most Prepared Guys In The Business”

February 11th, 2012

Joe’s spent much of the morning researching anything and everything about new Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan.

Maybe next week Joe will speculate about Sullivan’s strong relationship with free-agent-to-be Plaxico Burress. (Noooo.)  But for now, here’s a video on Sullivan from one of his hometown TV stations KSBY out of San Luis Obispo, California. Apparently, Sullivan brings a lot of enthusiasm to his coaching — “vibing,” as Raheem Morris might have called it.

    Hmm. Pitts OC? Nope. We got him. I’m vibing.

  2. Pete Dutcher Says:

    So we beat out Pittsburgh? cool 🙂

    Didn’t they deny us an interview? Not sure.

    I LIKE it !
    If our guys will not buy into a Super Bowl winning ofense, then they need to go.
    Winslow may be in trouble though.
    The NYG Offense requires tight ends who can BLOCK.

    But Luke Stocker just got a whole lot more important.

    Rahrah was prepared too – with a laundry list of words that start with y. He was also prepared to participate in press conferences where he made absolutely no sense at all while rambling on about grandmas who run like bulldogs and abusive uncles. If it werent true it would be hilarious!

  10. Vic Says:

    ewww on the balls comment. … Still not convinced he know what he’s doing as an OC, but it’ll be fun to watch evolve.

  11. bucfanjeff Says:

    Play calling will be a work in progress maybe, but he’ll work hars to perfect it.

    I think the fact that he has coached multiple positions and had great success is a huge plus. I think it enables him to see the game from different perspectives and he should know little tricks to put his players in the position to make plays. And let’s not forget he had experience coaching defense, albeit on the college level….so he can see the game from a defender’s perspective as well.

    He not only has 2 Super Bowl rings, but he also won a D2 championship as an assistant on Jim Tressel’s staff at Youngstown State. Some may not think that means much, but he has experience with some very successful coaches, and he knows what it takes to win on multiple levels. That is something that is very impressive and is a great reason for us Bucs fans to get excited about the direction this team is taking.

    Everybody looks good in february.

    Lets see how the twirl move works in September.

  15. Matthew Says:

    Well the twirl moves won a Super Bowl in Feb. so I’m assuming they’ll be just fine in Sept.

  16. Jared Says:

    Well everyone was ready to name Clements as the HC and now are questioning this guys ability to coach. Come on guys.

  17. Deputy Buc Says:

    So Brett Farve is now an Athletic Director at a high school and giving interviews on our new OC? LOL

  18. Apple Roof Cleaning Says:

    Ok, no one else has said it, so I will, he’s a Ranger, and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Belt Holder (he’s a bad ass) who I bet will have Zero Tolerance for the chit that went down in Tampa before.
    I don’t know if he will install the NYG Offense here, but I like that offense.

  19. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    We’re about to have a Giants/49ers type offense installed, which is awesome news. Tough, strong running game with play action setting up the downfield pass. The only problem is we don’t have a Cruz/Nicks or Crabtree currently, but that’ll change if Blackmon is available at #5 when we pick. Stocker and Blount better put their big boy pants on ’cause they’re about to get a lot of work.

  20. canada buc fan Says:

    Flyboy I agree with everything you just said. But Crabtree…really??? All the dude has done since coming into the league was hold out as a rookie because DHB was taken 7th instead of him. I would take pretty much any of our receivers over him.

  21. Pete Dutcher Says:

    The last 2 years we were about to have a green bay/steelers type of team. Not it’s the Gaints/49ers.

    First off…the 49ers are unproven. They had a good year…that’s all. Just like the jets had with Sanchez a couple years ago.

    I’m all for trying to mimic the things a team does right, but let’s not be “like” anyone. It’s the Buccaneers Way, not the Giants Way.

    Schiano and company has an opportunity to turn a young team into a dynasty. Can he do it? Who knows? 5 years is enough time to get things going well enough.

    The Tampa 2 was successful for a decade because we did it best. We started it. Now if the time for something new. Something the enemy has not got the answers for.

  22. Nick Says:

    Joe, how do you feel about signing Hines Ward? I think he could teach his clone, Arrelious Benn, a few things

  23. SebringSmitty Says:

    @ Tommy 2.2 , Rah Rah is gone now. You really need to stop beating a dead horse, or get some much needed counseling . Please….
