Bucs Believe Marpet Will Be A “Success”

June 14th, 2017

Simple logic.

Despite recent explanations why the Bucs moved former right guard Ali Marpet to center, it still has many Bucs fans lying awake at night.

U2-listening, winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter tried to calm frayed nerves of Bucs fans today.

Speaking after underwear football at Bucs minicamp, Koetter simplified the call to move Marpet for fans.

“If we didn’t think [moving Marpet to center] would be a success,” the Bucs would not have made the move, Koetter said.

As the one and only Chris “Mad Dog” Russo of SiriusXM Radio fame would say, “It’s as simple as that.”

So Joe hopes this will mean less fans’ money spent on hard liquor.

    As Lovie Smith would’ve said,
    “Simple as that, but how about the day Mike Jenkins had”

  2. Pickgrin Says:

    Ali will do great at Center. So glad they made this move at this time.

    Now about that RT spot…. Somebody needs to step up. Looking at you Caleb Benenoch.

    So Joe hopes this will mean less fans’ money spent on hard liquor. Seriously?!?!?

    Who is taking Marpets Guard position?

  6. unbelievable Says:

    lol birdman! You might start giving people night terrors mentioning that name around here.

  7. GhostofTedford Says:

    Does anyone know who is taking Marpets old position at Guard? Or who is competing for it?

  8. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Seriously? I know of part time workers…but part time fans?

  9. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Correction, that’s something even “part time” fans would know at this point…are you an actual ghost or something?

    I’m not worried. He projected as a C/G when we drafted him with C being the ideal eventual position after he took his NFL lumps at G.

    It seems the C has a bigger impact than either G position when it comes to a line’s success. If Ali is our best interior lineman he likely can help us more as an all pro C than an all pro G assuming he keeps up his level of play.

    Look at what Max Unger did for the Saints; or what Alex Mack did for Atlanta’s line last year for example

  11. tnew Says:

    Sweezy is the key for me. Can he stay healthy? if not is Benenoch a better option than bringing Hawley in at Center?

  12. caradoc Says:

    this was the plan all along. It was the plan when he was drafted. Only the clueless don’t see that. Warhop basically said they drafted him expecting him to be center in his presser.

  13. The Buc Realist Says:

    It has been the plan all along!!! This is not the first season that he has snapped the ball in practice!!!!!!! NFL GM Licht seems to be able to fine Guards pretty easy!!! get the interior of the line set, then they will make a decision with the tackles next year!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!

  14. The Real Malloy Says:

    Yeah Ghost, Im kinda sitting here scratching my head at how you don’t know whose penned in at RG.

    And no, I’m not going to tell you. I’ll give you a hint. He’s really nasty from what we’re hearing and he looks kind of demented.

  15. teacherman777 Says:

    If Sweezy is healthy, watch out!!

    They are PERFECT next to each other.

    IF, IF, IF, Sweezy is still as strong as he used to be.

    Go Bucs!

  16. Xandtar Says:

    He could be only average as a center this year and he’d still be an upgrade from last year.

    We’ll have to watch him get through his learning curve, but that’s okay, consider who’s behind him.
