Jameis Needs Stability

Davin Joseph talks about Lovie Smith’s job security

There are several ways to blow up a rookie quarterback’s career.

One is to have a sieve for an offensive line.

That’s why Joe thinks the Bucs are taking a major, major gamble hoping two rookies (one’s a Division-III product) can play average NFL football immediately, so “America’s Quarterback,” Jameis Winston, won’t get crippled.

A nice run game would help Jameis, and that too is questionable. What is not debatable is the Bucs have a pair of stellar, large targets in Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson.

A victim of the offensive line purge of 2014, guard David Joseph, believes the key to young Jameis’ success is Lovie Smith.

Joseph explains how Bucs history is against Jameis but Lovie could save him. See for yourself, as Joseph talks to Maggie Gray in the SI Now video below.

    Not to mention that “AQ” (lol) is fat, slow and has bad throwing mechanics…..

    It’s a Bucs life, if anybody should know, Davin would know

    “Jameis Needs Stability”…not to worry Joe has been propping up Jamesi since the Bucs secured the #1 draft pick………carry on Joe

    “America’s Offensive Line” should do just fine this year protecting “America’s Quarterback”, opening up holes for “America’s Running Game” and giving enough time to hit the open receivers who make up “America’s Passing Attack”. And if “America’s Head Coach” allows “America’s Offensive Coordinator” the leeway to do his thing unimpeded this could be an exciting year for “America’s Offense”, which in turn will keep “America’s Defense” well-rested and more effective.

    koetter and his play calling will be the key to keeping JW upright. the line is secondary. they were real bad last year…..but most of that was on arrroyo. a 3 year old knew what play was coming next.

  8. Destinjohnny Says:

    David is the man

  9. Destinjohnny Says:

    Jameis is going to get crushed behind that line

  10. Buc-A-New Says:

    Very well said FlBoyInDallas. I believe you just became “America’s Top Commenter”

  11. tmaxcon Says:

    Hopefully Lovie is better at coaching stability than he has at coaching football.

  12. Celly Says:

    I think its a good thing that Jameis is a student of the game and has the skill and willingness to learn a new playbook.

    I have the unnerving feeling that when we happen to do real well this year and the offense is vastly improved over last year, plenty of teams will be calling Koetter for a HC gig.

    Here’s to hoping that Koetter will stick around for at least 3 years.

    I agree with your words celly.

  14. Patrick in VA Says:

    @Celly – That’s something I’m wary of as well. He’s already expressed interest and if we got from the bottom to being formidable then he’ll be heavily sought after. He needs some stability and I don’t know that Koetter is the kind of guy that will settle in and offer that. Hopefully we’ll be able to recruit a new OC from within the system who can carry on a similar system and minimize the shift in the program, if that should come to pass.

  15. @Hands2theFace Says:

    He needs stability, the line needs to be better, he needs a running game…water is wet, fire is hot, a day without sunshine is like, you know, night…..My straw has a hole in it…..

  16. Celly Says:

    That’s the primary reason why i was hoping that we would be hiring an offensive-minded HC when we let go of Raheem and then let go of Schiano…

    The second option would’ve been for Love to hire an “old guy” offensive coordinator…someone that wasn’t really looking to become a head coach again and would be content just being an OC and perfecting his craft there…

  17. Charlie7 Says:

    Do you guys on here know football or are you just professional commentators? While the line is not “the Best” it is better than most may think. We had no, and I mean NO offensive coordinator and a lethargic QB last year. A real OC and a QB with a quick release and read and any kind of running game will make for a much better O-Line. Quit complaining and look at the glass as 1/2 full and not 1/2 empty !!!

  18. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Koetter will be here 2 yrs tops. I see us promoting Bakajikan after that

  19. White Tiger Says:

    Winston will only be as good as the line in front of him – unlike college – Fameis is about to see the best defenses he’s ever seen, every single week of the season.
