Koetter Makes Jameis Smile

November 15th, 2015
Jameis is giddy over OC Dirk Koetter.

Jameis is giddy over OC Dirk Koetter.

As Joe was told by players in the locker room after the Bucs beat the Cowboys to pull within 4-5 and keep their longshot playoff hopes alive, Dirk Koetter thought the Cowboys would bite big time on a run when the Bucs had the ball on the goal line after America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, used his Chico’s Bail Bonds card to dodge an ugly fumble.

Koetter figured the Cowboys would so heavily jump at the run, that their defense would give up a naked boot. That’s exactly what happened when Jameis jogged in for the game-winning score.

And Jameis had a smile on his face when he heard the play call. Not so much because he was getting his numbered called, but because he knew the Bucs would score.

“Man, I’ve been with Coach Koetter for nine games,” Jameis explained. “Every play he calls in my helmet, I get a smile on my face because I know it is a chance that this play will pop. “That’s how confident I am in him. That’s how confident I am in this team.”

Joe will state again for the record that the hiring of Koetter may be the single best move this franchise has made since Team Glazer swung a deal for Chucky.

Besides Chucky, Joe is convinced Koetter is the best offensive coordinator this team has ever had.

    Not “maybe the best move since Chucky” Joe, DEFINATELY THE BEST MOVE SINCE CHUCKY.

    Dare I say it…For this team right now. Koetter might be better OC than the Chuckster. Look at the cards Koetter is playing with, compared to what Chucky had. As great as Gruden was, he would have never had the patience to coach up this team full of rookies. Therefore the development of Winston and Co would have been stunted.

    Imagine if they had VJAX and a healthy ASJ.

    Shiver me timbers!

  7. Jameisbucsfan Says:

    Wait until the targets get healthy, we could finish 9-7.

  8. orlbucfan Says:

    Koetter is better than Chucky. I hope he draws up more plays for Humphrey. I liked him in the preseason. 8-8 for sure. Go Bucs!! Cowjokes–how the mighty have fallen.

    Totally agree, koetter is awesome

  10. Eric Says:

    I just wish we could go back to Schiano and Glennon with a OC from Rutgers thrown in the mix.

  11. mac Says:

    Koetter makes me smile and he should make all the Bucs fans smile because its the first time since John Gruden we have had a real established professional offensive coordinator and it shows…

    Now if we could only find a competent defensive coordinator we would be set…

    I cast my vote for Matt Patricia…

    Where is Lakeland Buc to talk smack on Koetter now?

    Yeah, that goal line call was straight up generalship. Like Patton.

    Keep it up, bucs. Congrats on beating “americas team”

    Good teams make their own luck and the Bucs finally managed to just that today.

    Luck ebbs and flows. #3 was about six inches shy of completing another Air Winston TD. Nobody talks about the fact of how UNlucky it was to come up six inches short on that TD run. Luck cuts both ways.

  17. San Francisco Joe Says:

    I actually thought this was one of Koetter’s weaker game plans. The call at the end was brilliant. Because we got the win, I will say that he made up for the bad game plan. The truth is, the Bucs should have blown out the Cowboys today. In the second half, I think Koetter woke up and realized that this team is at its best when there is a run-first mentality. Even when Martin is only clawing for three yards a carry, we cannot underestimate the pounding that is being put on the opposing defense. At the very least, until we get some of our receiving weapons back, they need to get the ball to Martin early and often.

    I been calling for bootleg or QB sneak for 5 years , wow and it works so easily. Glad offensive coach we have now has common since in the past you wonder what they were thinking.

  19. Dave Says:

    Hate to say would have, should have, could have ….
    But damn!!! They should have beat the Redskins and NYG.
    6-3 was a real possibility.
    But…. That’s part of a young developing team.
    I am so psyched to see a couple new DBs and DEs along with a WR next year.
    Division title coming !

    And the Lovie supporters start smack talking lol. While it feels great to be talking about positives like the Koetter hire you Schiano haters may want to hold off on your Lovie circle jerk until he maybe does something like let’s say win at least 7 games as the Bucs HC for starters. I’m gonna just take the game for what it was…a n ugly but sweet win against a team that has lost 7 in a row without their starting QB in the lineup…and Lovie finally had the D playing well (though we probably got away with a penalty or two). Koetter is the key to this team having a shot at a playoff run

  21. Johnny "America's Commenter" Dejay Says:

    I think it’s time to start worrying about the Bucs losing Koetter because he’s going to get a ton of interest as a head coach at the end of the season. I’m interested in seeing what the Glazers do, especially if the team finishes strong with at least 7 wins.

    Jameis is obviously the cornerstone for the future and Koetter is a perfect match for him. Would the Bucs fire Lovie to promote Koetter the way they fired Chucky to promote Raheem?

  22. celly Says:

    give this man a raise and promote him to Assistant HC.

    it is IMPERATIVE that we keep him and Jameis together.
