    @ Joe,

    What players were all present at the pc today?! I’ve read McCoy, ASJ and Pamphile so far…

    And was Mike Smith present at pc…curious as to who Koetter looked at right before announcing he was dc and then got choked up (probably for what kind man Smith is for having the humility to work under him now and help the hc out…

  7. Max Says:

    “Please buy tickets so I can keep my job.”

  8. ElioT Says:

    @ Max


    “Let’s get it loud so we can kick some ass!”

    ASJ, GMC, Kevin Pamphile.

    Was told Jameis was there earlier in the morning and talked to Koetter.

    To be fair, many of the players are either out of town on vacation or back in their hometowns outside of Florida.

    The more I hear Koetter speak the more I like him! It’s easy to say we’re going to do this and we’re going to do that, but seeing how emotional he became was very refreshing to see. We life Buc fans (fans since 1976) have seen a lot of fake people throughout the years, so fake is something we’re use to! I’m not going to compare coaches because that would be unfair but seeing Koach speak today reminded me of the hiring of coach Dungy and Coach Gruden! They all had an emotion that was bigger than football itself. Call me crazy call me what you will, but that’s what I saw from Koach today! GO BUCS

  11. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Love the way things are heading..I am buying my season tickets again..We will get loud!

    Good day for Bucs fan..I know this will be a good year!

  12. Vincente Says:

    The emotion I saw from coach Koetter in his PC was awesome. This guy loves football and I know he will give everything he has with this opportunity. Coach said he hopes the fans are with him well I’m here to tell you coach I’m here with ya and I’m not going anywhere. Congratulations Dirk Koetter you are going to do great things sir.

  13. 74 bucs fan Says:

    I’m here Koach!! You’ve earned my respect already with your passion , straight talk, and no bs. Congratulations and welcome aboard! Now, go kick some azzzz!

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    Loud at Raymond Jameis????

    I’ve been to libraries that are louder…

  15. unbelievable Says:

    @87, Right?!?

    A normal visit to Ray Jay for me would involve yelling at all the Bucs fans around me to stand up and get loud for once!

  16. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    Koetter did the same thing at the end of his interview with Big Dog pointing out how important the fans are…had Big Dog fired up..ended the interview with
    Go Bucs!!

    Big Dog talked about Koetter getting emotional and as he frequently does Big Dog basically answered the question for Koetter by saying that with a football family and all the jobs leading up to this it must be the culmination of a dream.

    Koetter did NOT HESITATE a beat and quickly replied…oh no not this…a Super Bowl win will be the culmination of all my dreams.

    This guy is focused!!! I LIKE him already.

  17. orlbucfan Says:

    I plan on listening to Coach Koetter. As a die-hard, loyal and long-suffering Bucs fan since 1979, he doesn’t have to worry about my support. Plus, both Mike Smith and he were responsible for the Dixie Chicks actually being the for-real Atlanta Peregrine Falcons. Enuff said. GO BUCS!!

  18. I'm tired and 87 is right Says:

    Believe it or not if been told to be quite in my section many times because I yell so loud. I hold back the language as best as I can but sometimes my passion gets the best of me. I just want to see these guys play with passion and hurts to not see it on the field all the time. I’m glad we have a QB and coach who believe in exactly what I believe in and that’s passion for the game. Stand up fans with me and chant this team on. That way I don’t have to yell so much and lose my voice everygame. Oh and many fans are now having my back in the game because they see how much I care. Go Bucs!! It’s a new day Tampa Bay!

  19. satchseven Says:

    you ungrateful jokers go from 2-14 to 6-10 talking crap on this thread unbelievable!!!!!!!

  20. satchseven Says:

    anybody that knows pro football knew the bucs were not ready. what the heck were you guys looking at I saw games with zero pass rush like the colts game, you just did not have the talent.

  21. satchseven Says:

    here is another thing why dirk did not tell jw stop forcing the ball to mike evans?

  22. Buc1987 Says:

    We’ve heard these pleas before though Bucs fans. Stay leery.

    Least it’s better than telling us not to be patient.

  23. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    “anybody that knows pro football knew the bucs were not ready.”

    Really? Two years ago…Lovie’s worst Buc’s team was predicted to go to the Super Bowl by Herm Edwards!!!

    OK that’s his bud Herm but major publications saw the Bucs as being one of the most improved teams and that was two years ago…before Jameis!!!

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    You ain’t seen nothing yet. Hold on to your skirts Buc Fans. Just wait until you hear the Koetter plea spin..once the losing starts all over again.

    Stick around some more then. Would love to read your daily opinions….

    Rather than criticize after the fact with no basis behind it. Put up more points on WHY Lovie should have been kept around. Not that it matters anymore NOR do we care OR do we call the shots on whether he got to stay or not.

    smh some a-holes…
