    Rock Riley is a blast to watch and listen to his videos, what was he doing before this? Good stuff.

  2. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I love Rock, but here is another example of no mention at all about our number one draft pick, not one word.
    I wonder why ?

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Let’s face it….the Bucs can play action anytime they want on first & 10……..it will catch the other team off guard.
    The Bucs call running up the gut about 70% on 1st & 10 no matter where they are on the field…..

    I dont mind run first if its actually working, but if your running it on first down amd only getting one or two yards at some point you have to start throwing the ball and quit being so predictable unless your getting 5 yards a carry. Thats one reason I wanted Samaje Perine but the redskins got him

  5. BucsDan Says:

    I am hoping for Coach to look to McDaniels for offensive inspiration when it comes to how we line up and create mismatches.

    I’m looking forward to coming out with Howard and Brate standing up out wide in trips getting ready to block for a screen, or going into a formation shift and getting into run heavy.

    The season can;t get started soon enough!

    We ain’t gonna have no problem runnin’ the ball this year. Safety has to respect Jackpot, linebackers gotta cover either OJ or Brate, and Godwin and Hump gettin’ their props. If Sweezy road grades as advertised and Marpet does his thing at center, can’t help but show out. Keep the good thoughts.

    appreciate Rock’s video’s short sweet and full of good stuff
    lets get some OJ news or Hargreaves news–does he practice some where on vacation?

  8. Bucsfanman Says:

    A running game opening up the passing game?!
    Sorry “passing league” enthusiasts! The run-game is alive and well!

    @Bucsfanman yeah if it’s 1990s 🙂

  10. DB55 Says:

    Can he stay upright? That’s the 25mill dollar question.

  11. Bucsfanman Says:

    Really Eifert?! So I guess that lack of a run-game last year didn’t effect us at all? Maybe you should check the stats on NE and Atlanta. Both had top 10 running games. So, there’s that!
    In truth, you HAVE to have both. It has to be balanced.
    Welcome back to the ’90s! LOL!

  12. Pickgrin Says:

    Coach K understands the importance of balance and his offense is designed around it. . As long as Dirk is in charge of the Bucs offense – we will never see a “pass heavy” offense ala Peyton and the Colts 10 years ago where the ball was thrown seemingly 70-80% of all downs. Even last year when the running game was not working well at all – Dirk never strayed too far from run/pass balance and just kept plugging away on earlier downs. Unless your passing attack is just unstoppable – that’s what you have to do to keep the defense honest and in trying to create mismatches.

    Jason Licht would be wise to invest some premium resources into the Buccaneers Offensive Line over the next couple of years to ensure we will be good up front moving forward.

  13. BucEmUo Says:

    Pickgrin did you watch Atl.when.Koetter was.oc there, they passed the crap out of the ball

  14. Pickgrin Says:

    Yea – because the Falcons Oline was pitiful and their running backs were averaging 3.5 ypc and they had Matt Ryan and Julio Jones and were able to at least move the ball and score some points by passing.

    They also went 4-12 and 6-10 his last 2 years there because their defense was terrible so they were constantly either trying to keep pace or play catch up – and despite having a “successful” passing attack the team lost often and Koetter and Smith got fired.

    No balance is usually a recipe for disaster in the NFL. Koetter knows this and will never again be that pass heavy unless he has no choice – which he really didn’t in Atlanta and look where it got him….

  15. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I think it will depend on the defense Koetter is facing. He’s been a pretty good chess player against DC’s in the past. These new weapons just give him another Bishop and Rook or two. He’ll know each team’s weakness and their vulnerabilities and exploit them…and the Bucs now have an offense to exploit every defensive weakness.

    DK will vary his offensive game plan pretty significantly from week to week IMHO

    Rock’s vids are great. Keep it up. JBF is on fire.
