What Dirk Koetter Is Drilling Into His Players

December 13th, 2015

KoetterColorful offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter is great fun at his weekly news conference, but what’s he really saying behind the scenes?

Vincent Jackson talked about Koetter’s recent focus, during Jackson’s Friday night show on the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Jackson explained that Koetter has transitioned to drilling players regularly on the importance of fundamentals in December. Per Jackson, Koetter is lecturing the team on the fact that playoff teams are winning on sound fundamentals during the stretch run, when lesser teams are getting out of their games and slacking on the basics.

Fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals, Jackson said, is the message to the offense. And Jackson said that very much ties to the Bucs’ problems with penalties.

Joe’s going to keep an eye on that today — to see if Koetter’s message sinks in. The Saints’ defense is extraordinarily vulnerable.

    This could really be an incredibly fun day with the passing of the torch as Fameis outduels Brees in a wild shootout…45-38!

    I’ve NEVER been this excited about the thought of watching our offense. This is the first time every part is in order. VJAX and Evans wide…two TE…ASJ and Brate..our original OL back2 great complimentary backs in Dougie and Sims…

    I want to see it all come together today…time to scare the beejeesus out of the rest of the league!!!

    Just go 7-6 so I can go into freak out mode.

    Sounds like a smart coach!

  4. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’ll be joining the freak out mode with a winning record and going 4-1 in the division. Go Bucs!

    Freak out mode sounds good to me. This is the first Sunday in years I’ll be dawning a bucs shirt just because it’s GameDay. If this team can focus and lovie doesn’t play the cb’s 10 yards of the LOS we have a shot. I just hope they aren’t listening to how good people are saying they are and getting cocky. It’s still drew back there at qb. He’s historically killed our defenses

    No doubt Brees is licking his chops to chew up pass yards against the Bucs. This game will be a barn burner, the over under at 51 points should be passed. Then again it could also be a somewhat low scoring final. Lovie said finish 4-0 in the final quarter of the season, this is the start of that journey and simply a game that has to be a Bucs win.

  7. Cannon Says:

    It sure is nice to still have meaningful Buc’s games this close to Christmas.

    Its been a long time since that has happened.

    Go Bucs!
