“Precision” Lacking

September 20th, 2016
jameis and vincent jackson

Dirk Koetter explains

Six catches on 16 targets for 62 yards and no touchdowns.

Those wide-receiver stats are slightly worse than the career numbers former Tampa Bay standout Donteea Dye.

The problem is those are Vincent Jackson’s totals for this season. It’s ugly stuff not befitting a guy earning about $600,000 per game.

Dirk Koetter had underscored the situation during his news conference yesterday.

“What I would just say on that is, we’re having too many instances where Jameis and Vincent, the precision isn’t there right now, the precision that we need between Jameis and Vincent,” Koetter said. “We’re talking about our two captains on offense and the precision between those two players just isn’t where it needs to be right now and that’s something we’re going to have to get straightened out really soon.”

Yes, the precision is lacking. Jackson has two drops this season, and Jameis has missed Jackson a few times.

Immediately following Sunday’s game, Joe asked Koetter what happened on the second interception by Arizona, the miscue in Jackson’s direction. Koetter quickly and directly blamed Jameis and said Jackson ran the proper route. There also was another bad throw from Jameis to Jackson, and Jackson dropped a ball at the 4 yard line.

Quarterbacks and receivers are supposed to make strides in their second year together. This obvious regression in disturbing.

    Alot of people here watched and know a decent amount of football thru the years..

    Older players with this violent game do not graciously get old…

    Production 99% of the time drops of the cliff

    No swan song this biolent game

  2. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Too much focus on making Humphries a deep threat ,and not enough on
    the Jameis to VJAX connection. Go back to the formula that worked last year.
    Until proven otherwise Evans ,VJAX, and two headed tight monster at tight end
    made the offense click.

  3. Bob in Valrico Says:

    Forgot Humphries as mr. reliable,first down maker.

  4. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Everyone will be saying how great Jackson is when he goes for 150, which will happen sooner than later.

  5. Poor Glennon Says:

    Koetter seems pretty angry at Winston. A former QBs coach as a coach. He will bench Winston. This guy has been riding the hype train since his first game in college. His footwork is a wreck. He looks slow and clumsy. Even in week 1 he was terrible in the first half. The first td was a produst of a nice bubble screen to Hump. Then a little dump to Myers for the TD. He did play very good in the second half. Anyway you slice it 3 v good quarters and 5 v bad quarters. Is not good enough. If he continues to struggle to week 7. We send Glennon and a 1st to Pats for Gropillo

  6. The Buc Realist Says:

    Some think that his injury from last year has crippled him, Some are saying that he is old and will take a couple more games to get his “legs” under him and then have 8 ok games, then he will lose his “legs” and the last 4 will be terrible!!!

    Either way this is the farewell tour for VJ87!!!!

    NFL Bucs Draft 2017 WR, TE, Safety!!!

  7. Waterboy Says:

    They need more speed at WR. The Cardinals laid the blueprint for shutting down the offense. Press coverage on the WR’s with help over the top on Evans and force the other WR’s to win 1 on 1 match ups and make you pay for blitzing. They’ll start seeing that all year until they’re able to have other WR’s besides Evans prove that they can consistently burn teams for big plays when they decide to blitz and leave their CB’s in 1 on 1 coverage.

  8. Poor Glennon Says:

    No pass rush, bad safetys play, poor WRz. Oh boy the Winston masses will try and pin the blame on everyone except Winston. V-jax has always be slow. It’s up to the coaches to decide if he’s done. Which they obviously felt he wasn’t. They definitely thought he had more in the after last season. Or they wouldn’t have drafted a kicker in the 2nd round. 2017 week 1 we will have a new GM and QB. The kicker will finish the GM and Winston inaccuracy will send him to the mound. Desperate teams will want to give him a chance. But he’ll walk to give baseball a try.

    @Poor Glennon
    Keep dreaming no one is sending draft picks for a 27-28 yr old career backup who will be a free agent after the season. That ship sailed after that last preseason game.

    @Poor Glennon

    If that is not one of the dumbest things I’ve read so far. New GM and QB? Why would they even think to fire a GM that had to rebuild the disaster of a roster that Mark left. No Depth at any of the positions and VJax was slow, but now he’s even worst. The Bucs will not and I repeat will not touch a QB in the 1st round for at least the next 2-3 years.

  11. Poor Glennon Says:

    One thing Koetter messed up baddly on Sunday. Was sending the kicker in for a field goal. High risk with very little reward. He hits it….big deal. I don’t think hitting that field goal. Would boost the Kicker much if any. But being down big and missing the kick. Could cripple a kickers mindset. It’s a tough job. Imagine knowing if you go 5-10 your livehood and dreams are dead.

  12. Poor Glennon Says:

    Garapillo looked great and i’m not talking about the stat sheet. Visually in the pocket. Being under Brady is the best situation for any developing QB. You can see the Bradyisms in his game. Set position, actually standing still. Looking left…..quick read and shift right. Still in set quick release position. Same slight knee bend and delivery every time. Guys like Rodgers are extremely rare. Off balance accurate. Coming out of college the knock on Brady. Was he was to slow and questionable arm strength. Just goes to show how far pocket presence, footwork and perfect throwing mechanic’s. Can go. I’d take him for Winston.

    I’m simply gobsmacked at many of the comments since this SINGLE FREAKING LOSS!!!

    Can we just skip the rest of the season? Many of you have written off our QB after one bad game…motivated for some of you because of your love of either MM or Glennon.

    Some of you are starting to embarrass yourselves. Get some perspective please!

    #3 is neither the QB he showed in Atlanta nor the QB he showed in AZ.

    He’s a kid! 22…18 games into learning the hardest position in all of sports.
    NOBODY can make pronoucements on him this early other than to say…he clearly has the best leadership skills of any young QB in a long long time.

    He clearly is dedicated to his craft! He’s had enough good and yes even GREAT games to raise expectations. He is NOT a finished product. He’ll get better and better and IMHO this game will be used by him to fire him up even more.

    Here is one thing I LOVE about this team. The leaders…HC..QB..and Kwon have all thrown THEMSELVES under the bus and claimed responsibility for the poor performance.

    When the leader on the offense and the leader on the defense both say the loss was THEIR fault..it’s all good guys!

    Poor Glennon has successfully become the dumbest poster on JBF. That’s quite the feat.
