Sullivan’s Chicago Dance Is Done

January 16th, 2013

Joe thinks any Bucs fan that wasn’t tossing and turning nightly over the thought of losing offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan might not be a true Bucs fan.

Not that Sullivan is Don Coryell, but his loss in 2013 would have been nothing short of a disastrous change for Josh Freeman.

Sullivan interviewed for the Bears head coaching vacancy, but today the Bears hired Marc Trestman. So it seems Sullivan is sure to be back calling plays this season.

This is soothing news, not Rachel Watson soothing, but soothing nonetheless.

    Are the Bucs interviewing anyone for the open coaching positions, or are they waiting for after the Super Bowl? Maybe now that Sully is locked down, Dom can start pursuing some leads.

    Chip Kelly did an about-face and has accepted the Eagles head coaching job. We know who Miguel’s favorite team will be next year.

  3. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    As for Sully, this is good news. Never expected he’d get the Bears job but good to have that settled.

    Great News! Freeman would have been a Mental Patient with another O.C. (even if they kept a similar style)

  5. Brandon Says:

    Not a true Bucs fan? I read Red, Joe! But I never thought Sullivan had much chance at all at getting the job with 12 oher more qualified and experienced candidates, I saw Sully as having about a one percent chance of leaving.

    @ians,Hey Ian,Ill bet when gosh fails next year the new excuse will be free was affected by the prospect of sully leaving and the weak-ass bitch just couldnt recover from it.Dont take much to push that basketcase over the edge.

    Wow! there’s some serious hatred for the next QB to lead my Bucs to the Superbowl.

  9. PRBucFan Says:

    The system isnt Josh friendly anyways. The only thing Josh has that’s required for this system is the big arm but everything else it requires plays to Josh’s weaknesses.

    I’m hesitant about him and that system ever gelling

    @grif4foozball…….its 1 thing to not want #5….but there is NO WAY YOU are a Bucs fan if u hope he fails. If he fails…this team is in trouble for 3 years (including next season).

    Too funny!
    Let’s see 55% comp, 4000+ yds, 27 tds to 17 ints, while not great numbers but they are very good. And all that, in the first year under a new offensive scheme and OC.
    BTW Josh didn’t lose as many games as our defensive seconary did!

    Quack! Quack! Your favorite flip flopper HC is now with the Philadelphia Ducks!

    Gowing to miss Miguel on this board as he now has a new Pro team to pull for. We can now call him “Mr Eagle”. Good luck with your new team.

  14. PRBucFan Says:

    @Oar we all saw the same games

    If you want to choose to look at those stats that’s on you.

    I saw him struggling immensely to grasp the intellect, quick decisiveness/reads required of this offensive scheme.

    Those numbers would be much greater and than would have really been impressive if he didnt struggle as much as he did.

    And btw 55% is below par

  15. OAR Says:

    Then you’re right, it’s on me.
    I didn’t say he couldn’t improve. With that said, I don’t think the areas he needs improving are related to his understanding or “gelling” with the offense.
