More No Huddle Is “Dicey” Recipe For Bucs

A former Bucs defensive player explains that more no-huddle offense is a bad recipe for Jameis Winston

More no-huddle offense to get Jameis Winston in rhythm and comfortable?

Get outta here, says one reasoned and seasoned former Buccaneer.

Perhaps the chief film guru among the ex-Bucs doing the media thing, former Tampa Bay defensive end Steve White (1996-2001), explains that no-huddle shouldn’t be a focus of this year’s offense.

While joining Ronnie and TKras on WDAE-AM 620 today, it was suggested to White that the Bucs should speed things up with America’s Quarterback.

“It sounds good, but then you remember that you have two rookie offensive linemen,” White said. “And then it gets a little more dicey. You see, you catch some teams unaware that first time you go no-huddle, right? And maybe you hit them for a touchdown.

“Keep doing it, though, and all of a sudden they’ve adjusted and their blitzing whey you try to go no-huddle. And guess what, that’s not going to turn out well for our rookie quarterback or our rookie offensive linemen. I would like to do it. It seems like it would be easy to do. But in practice, it’s usually [harder] than that. That’s why you only really see the really great quarterbacks, or the high-level quarterbacks, doing a whole lot of no-huddle throughout a game.”

Joe has no argument with White here at all, sound logic and a voice of experience.

Joe already has seen Jameis play strong football — at New Orleans and at Houston. He’s 21-years-old, and the O-linemen are thriving in their current duties. No need for a radical change to the approach.

    Well the messiah certainly qualifies under those requirements. #goat

    The career of South America’s QB is dicey. He’s starting to sound like Lovie too, stating he’s going to concentrate on ball security the rest of the year. WHY NOT WEEK 1!!! Lovie talks crap and promises every week, now it’s the QB. Win win situation this week for Bucs fans. A win is always good, but a loss should send Lovie packing…

  3. BrianBucs Says:

    @ Bucco

    Agree with you that if Bucs lose to the lowly Jags at home on Sunday that Lovie’s seat should start to feel awfully hot

  4. Volbuc Says:

    I just heard Schiano whisper “miss me yet??..LOL
    Lovie would have to go 8 and 4 the rest of the year to match Schiano’s record after 2 years. Just waiting for the billboards to go up!! Lets be consistent JOE!!

  5. Buccfan37 Says:

    It seems like it’s about half and half for Lovie to be shown the door. Let me break the tie. Lovie ain’t going nowhere, don’t try to send him nowhere, cause Lovie ain’t going anywhere.

  6. Ernest T Bass Says:

    Yes lots of no huddle please! This would mean more picks and open the door for white RG3 Ryan Griffin the Third. White RG3 is the most talented QB we have.

    Montreal offered Jonathan Crompton and Sam for Winston and George Johnson. Greenhorn Licht said no. When a sucker wants your lemons you sell. Connor Barth is getting double paychecks like Michael Johnson!

  7. Lord Cornelius Says:

    There’s no need for radical anything unless you’re a nut. The vast majority of the team has played well enough to be 3-1. Just make your FGs and hope Winston continues to develop & avoid big turnovers.

    He needs to still test the field though because that is what his strength is. I don’t want to see a dink and dunk offense. Just decision making more in line with New Orleans / Houston.

    Steve white? zzzzzzzzzzzz…….. white instead of ur negative outlooks…tell us what can you do in this current situation. Don’t complain without solution. Sounds to me you always hating. You don’t see former great bucs spilling their what of should of thoughts. It’s aways those sorry ex bucs who obviously have some bad vendetta against the teams who will NEVER be in our ring of honor. Simple as that!!!!!

  9. Rod Says:

    Lord Cornelius – such a non-jerkoff reaction… you sure you’re in the right place? To post here you have to call for the firing of every coach ever after a preseason loss.

  10. bucsbedabest Says:

    How about Winston starts by not keying on the other teams best CB? How about not repeating the same mistake over and over again? It’s not yet clear whether this hot-or-cold play from Winston will continue, but we need to see some sort of positive consistency from a player everyone is having doubts about.

  11. Lord Cornelius Says:

    “Don’t complain without solution. Sounds to me you always hating”

    This could apply to most the commenters here and goes along with Rod’s comments.

    There are some anti-lovie people who actually have alternative ideas / plans in mind but most people can only think in simple terms of losses = panic and overreactions.

    QB commits 5 turnovers in a game where the D played well & offense moved ball well = reaction of fire head coach? lol wtf

    What is crazy is Im a huge Winston homer from FSU and even I put that Carolina game solely on his 5 turnovers that lead to 27 points.
