Watch for Dirk Koetter to unveil a different look to the Bucs’ offense

What does Joe expect on Monday night against the Bengals?

Aside from a meaningless game, Joe’s looking for a change in the offense.

In the preseason opener, Dirk Koetter said he was trying to keep Jameis Winston, America’s Quarterback, in a no-huddle offense 50 percent of the time, per the offensive coordinator’s chat with SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Also in that interview, Koetter referenced that the Bucs wanted Jameis to ease into his first game a bit since he was so amped up.

Joe expects none of that on Monday, and Joe expects the Bucs to play more long ball and play-action shots, and even get guys not named Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans involved. It might be nice to see if Kenny Bell can look like a fill-in No. 1 or No. 2 receiver, and whether Louis Murphy still has the wheels.

Jameis flashed his arm strength in practice yesterday, when the Bucs appeared to be preparing for Monday.

Enjoy the video. That’s 63 yards in the air.

    Great coverage

  2. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Man this about to be a sweet ride.

    You took the words right out of my mouth! The Bucs first real Franchise QB with an NFL quality OC! Who woulda thunk it!! Now, about that Oline…

  4. Pickgrin Says:

    Arm strength is certainly not an issue for Jameis Winston. Accuracy with the long ball is also a major strength. Buccaneers football is going to be fun to watch again finally.

    Does anyone know how far Winston can throw a football? Seriously, the guy seems to have a cannon of an arm and I read that in 10th grade he could launch the ball 70 yards in the air. Just wondering where he is at currently.

    Wow…what the f…NO bashers here this morning. Nothing better than a Sunday morning cup of optimism!!!

    rayjay…I wish I could remember the actual snippet but I was not a huge Fameis fan until he became a Buc. But I do recall a video of Fameis funnin’ with his friends and throwing the ball over this huge building. It was an amazing toss and here’s something else to consider. Fameis is not yet at his prime when it comes to physical strength. He’s a very young guy with some more growth ahead…physically not just mentally.

    JFro aside the last time I remember seeing a successful Buc QB was Garcia. He had the most disgustingly weak arm in the league but he made up for it with his smarts, guts, and competitive spirit. But I grew so tired of watching a Bucs receiver getting behind the defense and Garcia’s rubber band simply couldn’t get it there in time. Obviously that will not be an issue for Fameis,

    Nice throw. But I’m pretty sure I coulda completed that one. How does Mike Evans a legit no.1 optio get that open?? In a cover 2 no less.

    Clock is ticking Lovie.

    The bashers are all in church. the service is about to let out. Praise the Lord and bash the Bucs. Then pass the plate, no tokens please.

  9. Mort Says:

    Buccfan37: they’re all busy leaving “Jesus loves you” cards as a tip at lunch. They’ll be here soon.

  10. rayjay1122 Says:

    @Buccfan37 and Mort:

    Unfortunately you two are not far off on your comments. The thing to consider is that going to Church or being religious does not make a person a Christian. Many go through the motions on Sunday morning then flip off people while driving home. There is surely hypocrisy that is practiced every day but there are authentic Christians who live out in their lives what they profess with their mouths. Now, back to the optimistic thread. Go Bucs!! I know preseason does not count, but it sure would be nice to get a win and look good Monday night. Losing sucks even in preseason.

  11. Skyline Crew Says:

    I’m looking for improved accuracy, less jitters, and better reads. Improve from the last game, all you can ask for.

  12. Bucamania Says:



    I think Jameis will start to quiet that crowd come Monday night. The guy won’t stop until he’s great.

  13. Soggy Says:

    wow bashing jesus and the church to get back at the buc bashers, I knew there was a reason for my not reading and commenting on these idiot boards for over a year.. Looks like I did not miss a thing..

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Who’s bashing Jesus?

  15. Dick2111 Says:

    Buccfan37 … “The bashers are all in church.”

    Not a big fan of prothletizing … I remember reading a sign many years ago that read “Sitting in the church pew doesn’t any more make you a Christian than going to McDonalds makes you a hamburger.”

    But I also remember reading another sign that read “If you live your life as if there is no God, you’d better be right.”

    I’m one of those ‘church-goers’ you seem to be so negative about, but I also love the Bucs. Season ticket holder since RayJay opened, and have rooted for them through some good times but also through some pretty bad times. Lots and lots and lots of Bucs fans fall into that same category I can assure you.

    The next time you’re inclined to make ‘basher’ comments, kindly talk to a few of them first.

  16. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    You need some reading comprehension courses. NOBODY bashed Jesus or Christianity. You people really need to get a grip. He was probably bashing YOU!

    The posters are simply stating the truth. A HUGE number of Christian are not really “Christian” in their actions. One of their leading candidates called Obamacare “slavery”. Really. That’s the “Christian” outlook? For perspective we are the ONLY civilized nation in the ENTIRE freaking world without universal healthcare. I won’t get into the details of which programs work best…single payer, socialized (many maroons don’t even know the two representations of this in our nation) or Obamacare or NOTHING the preferred position of many Christians.

    The two posters were not deriding Jesus or Christianity. They are deriding the hypocrites who seem to dominate the Evangelical movement and especially the right wingers. And one wag once pointed out….these so called “Christians” would do a lot better if they put up the Ayn Rand and started reading more of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John!!!!

    It’s a sports blog and so I apologize but it’s also Sunday and so perhaps it fits.

  17. Buccfan37 Says:

    Sorry if I offended anyone, I have some good Christian friends. I’m on a roll opening mouth and inserting foot.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    Stpetebucsfan …Jumpin Jimminy Christmas take it easy lil libby. I’m far right and haven’t been to a church in my life. This is not the place for any of that talk though. There is however a place on Joe’s message board for this kind of talk.

    Pshhh lol liberals.

  19. Rob Says:

    I hope they dont call that play until Cherilus gets in the game. Starting Reid Fragel could get Jameis killed.

  20. Skydancer3 Says:

    This is the video that you were referencing where he threw the ball WAY over the Pike house:

    And here is where he shows some skill catching his own passes:

  21. Drywaller Buc Says:

    This is a no religion zone

  22. NonyaDamnBucsiness Says:

    Off topic: I’m atheist. Can we just stick to bashing others for the negativity of the Bucs fandom and leave religion out? Joe has forums for that stuff. 🙂

    On topic: That is one sweet arsed throw. Effortlessly done!

    Love to know his max long ball.

    GO JW3, ME13, AND BUCS!

  23. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    THANKS for finding that video!

  24. NoleBuc907 Says:

    This video will give you an idea of his arm strength…. In high school.

  25. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    Can’t view the video. Thanks.
