Dirk Koetter Details JPP’s Inside Rushing Prowess

August 4th, 2018

Yes, Jason Pierre-Paul continues to line up inside on many Bucs pass rushing sequences.

Today, Joe asked Dirk Koetter what he’s been seeing on the practice film from his manbeast DE who is known as an edge rusher.

JoeBucsFan.com: Of all you’ve seen on film of JPP rushing inside in drills and what not, what makes him a good inside guy because he’s spent most of his career outside?

Dirk Koetter: I think just his length. I don’t think those guards are used to guys that are as long as him. And then when you watch him on tape, man is he flexible and he can bend. I mean that guy has got some serious flexibility. He’s got power and he’s got speed. And then he gets those long arms on those guys and they have a hard time getting off.

What a fun fantasy it is to imagine JPP rushing inside like a madman with McCoy and having it transform both their careers with Noah Spence and and Vinny Curry cleaning up outside.

It would be very cool if the Bucs maximized JPP’s talent in a way that the Giants, JPP’s former team, never discovered.

    Or it would be another in a long line of out of position player failures. Didn’t we just draft someone at the top of the draft to play next to McCoy. This sounds like the Marpet disaster of 2017-18. Koetter is not a good enough coach to play players out their normal positions. There is no trophy for going against the grain in the NFL. Maybe Koetter wants to get fired.

    Keep JPP on outside unless Spence starts to become a monster rusher.

    Don’t like your name but also wonder if JPP more likely to be hurt playing out of typical position.

    We trade for him and pay him all this money to duplicate his success of nearly a decade in the NFL only to change his role and position? Only our Bucs?

    I’m tired of people in this organization going against the grain for the sake of being different and missing the obvious! Stop trying to be the smartest guy in the room! I’m tired of the on the job learning! Leave him outside!

    The reason we play JPP inside is to first the QB out and at the same time defense the run up the middle and force the RB to the outside to gholston,curry,Kwon,or lavonte.we would be top 5 run defense
