Maybe Koetter Has A Point?

August 26th, 2017

Reason to be miffed.

Before Joe gets rolling, yeah, Joe knows many offensive starters were out for the game including the two best receivers and two starters on the offensive line.

Still, the Bucs offense for most of the first half looked just dreadful. Almost as if someone snuck Marcus Arroyo through a hole in the north end zone fence.

The numbers on the stat sheet for the first half didn’t look so bad. But geez, only a measly field goal against the bungling Browns?

Until the Bucs moved the ball rather crisply near the end of the first half, the offense looked as if the team was playing in a downpour. Anything but sharp.

Seemingly more often than not, winning Bucs coach Dirk Koetter has come off the practice field grumbling about how the practice was sluggish or just plain bad. After watching the Bucs offense in the first half wet the bed, it sure seems Koetter had a valid reason to be grumpy.

The first-team offense (what was left of it) looked anything but Miami-ready.

    I’m thinking… ’bout let’s line Anger up in the backfield on 3rd down…..take a pitch from Jameis then punt….

    He seems to be our most consistent weapon….

    Our offense better start getting it together…..or our defense will have to win all our games.

    Joe you know what I mean. Man in the mirror. It’s all fun relax. Go Bucs!! In fact you would laugh if you knew who I was.

    I don’t see it.
    Other than punching it in the end zone, they have dominated.
    Other than Peyton Barber, everyone has looked good individually.
    Some mistakes and penalties to clean up, but looked good

    Reedy just took the lead as wr #5.
    Humph looked good except the alligator arm non-catch.
    Godwin looked great.
    Howard looked great.
    The VH3 looked awesome

    I hope they were not giving their 100% tonight because man all the excitement building this year, I’m not sure I can handle another disappointing start to the season.

  7. James Walker Says:

    We never saw our first string offense tonight.

    !st string or no string…As the great Dick Buckas once said..any time a team comes to your stadium and whips home…give’em credit! Amen brother Buckas..AMEN!!
    Cleveland balled..Bucs did not..NEXT!!!!!!!!!

    With all due respect, the Browns are not “Bungling” anymore. I live right in the middle of Browns, Bills and Steelers territory near Erie PA.

    I get more info on those 3 teams than I do the Bucs, and the Browns have just almost as much talent as the Bucs. The Browns are putting a heck of a team together and Dashone Kiser is performing way above expectations. He looks just as good as Jameis in his rookie year. They have a stout Defense, and more talent as WR than most know. They drafted 6 WRs in just the last 2 years and that doesn’t count TE Njoku in the 1st round this year. They have a good OL, good RB, and good coaches. The browns are going to bite a lot of other teams in the Butt this year. I would not recommend checking them off as an automatic win on anyone’s schedule.

    Godwin, Howard, Rodgers, Hump, Brate and Reedy all looked good tonight. Even Dye had a great catch. The return game looked better woth Reedy. Ryan Smith looks to be improving and almost had a pick tonight. I am very encouraged by what I saw considering how many players were out tonight.

    Love the Website, GO BUCS!!!!
