“He’s Going To Stand Back There And Hold It”

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher talks Jameis, and more.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher talks Jameis, and more.

Very interesting stuff from Rams head coach and defensive wizard Jeff Fisher.

He did a weekly sitdown with the Rams official website in advance of Sunday’s Bucs-Rams game, and Fisher had plenty to say about the Bucs. (Video here).

So far this season, teams have loaded the box against the Bucs and focused on stopping their run game. Dirk Koetter has been very clear on that point.

Fisher was asked about facing America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, and Fisher emphasized the Jameis is predictable because “he’s going to stand back there and hold it.”

For Fisher (who knows if he’s throwing around a bunch of BS), he’s dialed in to loading up the box.

“I’m more concerned about their run game,” Fisher said.

“They’re so well coached that you could anybody [running back] in there and be productive.”

There’s more in the video, including a new angle on the drop by Charles Sims that led to Jameis’ pick-6 versus the Cardinals last week. And there’s a cool end zone view of Jameis hanging in the pocket with Aaron Donald bearing down to blast him last year in St. Louis.

Will the Rams really load up to stop the run with Charles Sims as the top threat? We’ll see.

    If this new coaching staff of the bucs wants to be taken seriously and start earning respect from the fans, they need to take care of a mediocre Rams team that has had their number in recent years. Gotta get these fans excited and hopefull here at home. Go bucs.

    Wonder if Fisher is actually afraid of the back end of his defense? Could it be he wants #3 to unload all quick passes.

    Who knows? Who believes anything a coach says before a game when it comes to strategy.

    It’s like the big debate on Monday. Do we believe anything from either of the camps about how they are going to handle it or what they expect?

    Who ever gives away their strategy before a contest?

    Translation: I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.

    We are NOT going to be able to run the ball on Sunday so Jameis is going to have to be accurate this week. He is going to have to prove that he can beat teams with his arm. This is probably going to be a close game because of the Rams defense being so good. They are going to score at least 1 touchdown because we CANNOT get consistent pressure on the QB. Hopefully our offense will be able to score because whoever can score at least 17 points in this game is probably going to win. I sure hope Tampa wins for the fans at the game. I was thinking about going to the game before JW looked SO bad last week.

  5. Defense Rules Says:

    No Martin, no Stocker … Bucs could have a problem trying to run the ball tomorrow. With ASJ cut, now leaves us 3 TEs (Myers, Brate & Cross) and no FB. Only Myers is known for his blocking. Sure glad Licht & Koetter didn’t listen to all those who wanted to cut Myers before the season started … maybe they knew something the fans didn’t.

    Maybe its the truth and JW isn’t the main threat on this team.

    Looking at Adam Humphries and Sims to step up and offer Jameis quick routes, to then set up bit plays down field for Evans. Don’t let the rams get rolling with Donald and Quinn

  8. unbelievable Says:

    That Dani Klupenger ain’t too shabby…

    Not buying Fisher’s BS. They’ll focus on stopping the run alright but rushing the passer will be their main thing. They will try to make Jameis as uncomfortable as possible, all game long.

    No respect from Joking Jeff Fischer for America’s 2nd most hated QB…

  10. iamabuc Says:

    Guys, remember..this is the coach that didn’t even want to interview for the Bucs I will always remember that, Fisher). Now after about three years, I am glad he didnt. He is nothing but a looser. I still don’t know why he still have a HC job. The Rams have been nothing but pathetic under his tenure. He doesn’t scare me, I hope he is not scaring our team. He talks nothing but bs and I will love for our guys to handle him a lost, period. This is a winnable game. Get it done, Bucs!

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    And maybe Bucnut is still a moron…

  12. Mike Johnson Says:

    BS. Fisher is just trying to decoy the Bucs. jameis is just going to have to be jameis on Sunday. The good jameis. He probably won’t have much time to start out with. My guess is the Rams will indeed load the box and try to bring tremendous pressure on Jameis. Hope the Bucs ruck up and play hard enough to win.

  13. Doctor Stroud Says:

    Joking Jeff Fischer strikes again. When asked which of the other QBs will be inactive, he demurred: “Don’t know yet”…“Have to wait and see. . . . Come to the game.” Let’s take his advice and show up to the game. I hope the stadium will be packed with loud Bucs fans to make it real hard on whatever QB the Rams decide to suit up.

  14. biff barker Says:

    Defense Rules, I always thought Myers was worthy of a roster spot too.

    Maybe the Licht and Koetter knew they needed a backup plan given the ASJ situation. They knew a lot more then the fans did.

  15. dubstepper Says:

    Fisher owns the Bucs. Unfortunately this is a loss.

  16. Dreambig Says:

    Maybe we should ask Atlanta if Jameis is a threat.

    Hey Joe,
    Why can JBF put the Countdown Clock up for every home game? It’s a neat/cool video feature. When you did it for the 1st game away against the Dixie Chicks, Bucs won and looked good. It just might bring us some more luck today at RJS. 🙂 We can always use luck.

    P.S.: Never underestimate Jeff Fisher. Bet the Titans wish he was back. GO MIGHTY BUCS TODAY AT RAYJAY!!
