Key To The Bucs?

July 19th, 2016
The key to victory.

BSPN explains

Training camp creeps closer and closer, sort of like the hottie barmaid teasing you as she takes her time working her way toward your table when you are parched.

Many outlets will soon be offering endless season previews, and BSPN is no different. In short, their key for this Buccaneers season isn’t America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, nor is it first-year coach Dirk Koetter. No, says Bucs beat reporter Jenna Laine.

The key to the Bucs is defensive coordinator Mike Smith. Why? Well, Joe will let Jenna explain below.

    Where did my comment go?

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    I am most excited to see what the defense will look like. How will the rookies play??? How much of the leftover roster can Coach Smitty salvage??? How hard did the roster study during the offseason to learn all their responsibilities??? These questions will determine will the defense will be at the second quarter of the season!!!!

    But if they answer these questions correctly and the defense is flying around and successful, Will Coach Smitty have fun as DC and fall in love with the Tampa area??? will he choose to become the stabilizing factor in a long Buc’s Playoff run???? I hope so!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dadgummit! What is going on Joe?

  4. Mike Johnson Says:

    The key to this Buc team winning is the Defense. The offense will score. But can we stop anybody? Can we stop them at critical points in the game. As I’ve said repeatedly, What use is Jameis throwing for 500 yrds a game and we still lose 31-30? Batter up DC Smith.

  5. America's QB Says:

    Mike not sure ain’t agree with you. We need to be much better in the red zone. Last year it was pretty awful in terms of scoring tds. A lot of scoring came late in garbage time. I am not trying to be a downer as I am really excited for this season but if you can’t scored tds you aren’t winning too many games!

  6. unbelievable Says:

    Red zone offense and red zone defense were terrible.

    Improve those areas and we can have a winning record.

  7. Bucsfanman Says:

    I am looking forward to seeing this defense. Last year was so awful! I do think that an improved defense will help us win more games (duh!).
    I also have to side with America’s QB though. The offense is far from polished. There’s plenty of room for improvement on all sides of the ball.
    I’m liking the energy.

    Give up. What’s going on?

  9. Rick in Ft. Myers Says:

    Well that analysis deserves a great big “Duh!” One could have figured that out from the play-by-play recaps without bothering to watch the tapes. About the only thing noteworthy was the reference to increased blitzing from Lavonte David, harkening back to the Schiano era.

    I have a dream. And it possibly is just that. That Mike Smith has so much success as our DC that he doesn’t want to leave and chooses to ignore the seduction of another Head Coaching job to work with Dirk and build a dy-“NASTY”! I don’t think it’s so far fetched. Smith knows the added stress of the demands placed upon a HC and, if the Glazers pay him accordingly (and I believe they would), when he builds something special here, he will want to stay with the players that he helped reach the mountaintop and coach with his dear friend for years to come. Don’t assume he’s gone after a year or two. I just have a feeling. We shall see. Either way, GO BUCS!!!
