Air Koetter

Can the offense go higher?

Can the offense go higher?

Last year Joe remembers at one point watching the offense and wondering aloud if he made the right choice of profession.

The Bucs’ offense, led by Stewart McClown, was so godawful, it wasn’t something to watch by choice. In fact, video of the offense last year should have been used as a torture device to obtain information from a Guantanamo Bay inmate.

The Bucs’ offense was ranked dead last in 2014.

Then, in comes new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, and — voila! — offense is here. How good? Read the words of the Custodian of Canton, eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.

Sparked by the play of Martin and Winston, the Bucs boast the NFL’s No. 7 offense, which would be the highest ranking in franchise history, topping the No. 9 showing in 2012, Martin’s rookie season.

Man! All of this with a rookie quarterback and receivers who, too often, cannot catch the damn ball.

Imagine where the Bucs offense would be if these receivers didn’t treat the football so much like it was infected with the Ebola virus.

    Give the McCown bashing a brake. The guy had 12 TD to 3 INT with a 93.3 QBR this season with a lousy team. The dude is one of the toughest guys in the league at any position. It had a lot more to do with the Bucs choosing to go into the season without a qualified OC than McCown’s play. Please disclose why you have such a hard on for this guy.

    Did you watch Stewart McClown play last year?

    Without McCown, there might be no Jameis. We are indebted.

    Without Lovie’s incompetence, there might be no Jameis. We are indebted

    Fixed your psot.

    McCown deserves all that and more. It’s not personal. It’s fandom.

    Glennon got scolded for beating the Steelers. Not part of the plan!

  7. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Air Koetter should try to be more Ground Koetter. When you have the leading rusher in the NFL, what good reason is there not to use him?

  8. Kevin Says:

    I have to agree with stain glass man. Honestly we all know McCown was bad last year….but if winston was playing on that team last year with Marcus Arroyo and not Dirk Koetter, you can’t begin to tell me it would not have been another nightmare of season. I thought Josh has looked good considering his situation in 2015. Had Lovie deliberatley destroyed all chances of winning last season in the chase for Jameis, and the O-line played like it did this year, and Martin ran like he did this year…I think it would have been slightly less painful to watch.

  9. Kevin Says:

    If Koetter is still here in 2017, I can see a real chance at this team making a deep postseason run….but I fear we will have Lovie and some OC apprentice confusing the O0line and offense and the entire season relying on it’s ability to produce 6 turnovers a game on defense and special teams. Cuter is realistic…he knows turnovers are great, and need to be preached every week….but he also knows it takes putting the ball in the hands of your playmakers as much as possible to put up points. Lovie does not. At least he does not act like it.

  10. The Buc Realist Says:

    Other than Eagles game, and the Washington comeback debacle, The huge “Yard” games all came in the bucs blowout games!!!!!

    Maybe next year we will get to see good football when it matters!!!!

  11. TombsEN Says:

    Buc Realist,
    What blowouts you damn moron!

  12. The original "Kevin" Says:

    The only reason they werent blowouts is the ability for this offense to score some points. Again if Dirk Koetter ends up leaving, that will automatically take us back to the 3 previous seasons when we actually were getting blown out every friekin week. Until something changes how soft our head coach is or how soft his defense plays…are the broken record bucs

  13. OneLove Says:

    The offense WILL be better next year. We probably need another good WR, but this draft SHOULD BE 90% defense!! GOOD LAWD these guys are bad!!

  14. unbelievable Says:

    Yeah, but where do we rank in POINTS SCORED?

    Certainly not 7th.

    Redzone offense needs to improve, both playcalling and execution.

    And until he proves he can do it effectively, stop forcing Charles Sims to be the primary back for long durations during each game!

    He’s just not good at it (yet?). But he’s highly effective as the change-of-pace, line-up-as-WR type guy. Very effective!

    McCown played terrible last year, but who on the team did not? IIRC, Evans and VJAx both went over 1000 yards?

  15. The Rockstar Says:

    Amazing the difference having an Offensive Coordinator. Pure genius on the part of the organization this year.

  16. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Just imagine all of the key ingredients returning!!! Just imagine a draft half as good as this years…that would be two impact starters at DE and DB.

    We are on the upswing and all these injuries this year have the effect of giving us some depth. Imagine next year if we hit the draft lotto on a stud DE…..we have GMC hopefully healthy again…Jack Smith….McDaniel comes back…Spence another year experience…Gholston ready to blossom…this team could be something special.

    If we get another great edge rusher in the draft to go with Jack Smith and Gholston…and if we get a really great cover corner to go with Moore on the other side…we’ll be set.

  17. Dave Says:

    imagine another year under their belts and another receiver.
    They are going to be downright dangerous.
    Add a couple DEs and DBs and they will have a defense in the top 1/3rd
    10+ wins for the next several years if they replenish the depth each off season

  18. Ray Rice Says:


    You are just jealous because McClown has better hair than you.

  19. 1BucFanNsaintCountry Says:

    What blow outs? 😅😅 did you have your eyes closed when Mariota blew us out and we have not scored a TD till the 2nd half the last 2 games. Need I say more?

  20. godzilla13 Says:

    The NFL’s No. 7 offense, which would be the highest ranking in franchise history was also the 17th ranked offense (22.2 pts/g) for points per game and only scored more than 23 points in just four games. Below are the lowest scoring games –

    Tennessee Titans 14 pts
    Houston Texans 9 pts
    New York Giants 18 pts
    Dallas Cowboys 10 pts
    Indianapolis Colts 12 pts
    New Orleans Saints 17 pts
