Jameis Gives Emotional Koetter Game Ball

September 11th, 2016

koetterphillypressYes, Joe is live in Atlanta and just got to witness the victorious new Tampa Bay head coach struggle to compose himself.

Speaking in his postgame news conference, Dirk Koetter was asked about America’s Quarterback giving him the game ball after this afternoon’s victory. Koetter got a little emotional.

The candid, fiery kid from Pocatello, Idaho, the son of a football coach, waited a long time for his shot at a top job in the NFL. Koetter hasn’t tried to hide his emotions and opinions from media, and it’s no surprise that he wore his raw emotion on his sleeve after this thrilling win in Atlanta.

Well done, Coach. You earned it.

    If you look around the league it’s the tandems of HC and QB that make the difference. Belicheat/Brady Sherman/Rogers

    I think we are blessed that Koetter and #3 have formed this bond so early.

    It’s going to be a fun ride!

    Hell yeah. huge win. There is a lot of room for improvement but you can see a huge difference from last year. Game was entertaining and much less frustrating to watch. Oline has got to keep Jameis from getting hit so much.

  20. Dreambig Says:

    Great Win for Koetter and the Bucs! It would have been nice if Koetter would have elected to keep on the pressure by keeping the offense trying to score. This game didn’t have to be this close. But hey, I just happy for the win!

  21. Biggun Says:

    Felt good…. really really good. Thanks guys for making my day lets keep it up GO BUCS!!!

  22. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Hey guys does this game mean we can retire some terminology and gripes.

    No more Lovie posts we washed the taste out of our mouths.

    No more KY references to ME..he was outstanding and focused and didn’t take the Falcon DB’s bait.

    We can put off cutting Aguayo…LMAO

    And as Joe has posted we can stop busting GMC’s chops.

    On TV it looked as if the upper deck had a lot of empty seats. Was the place full?

  27. Buc1987 Says:

    SPBF…it does for me. That’s pretty much the last time I’m going to type the big L from here on out.

    I don’t think Mike Johnson is going to be right about Koetter living in a van down by the river… 🙂

  28. John McKillop Says:
