Dirk Koetter’s Call For A Complete Game & An Ed Glazer Sighting

October 24th, 2018

Raise your hand if you remember the clamp-down Dirk Koetter defense shutting out the explosive Steelers in the second half of the Tampa Bay-Pittsburgh game last month.

It was a beautiful thing. But that was just one example of the Bucs’ issues in producing a complete football game from its various units, offense, defense and special teams.

Man, the Bucs are one up and down team — a sign of great potential and mental weakness.

Joe brings this up today because of the wonderful behind-the-scenes glimpse into the team provided by the NFL and the Buccaneers. It came late Sunday after one long and ugly football game, one that ended in a glorious victory by the Bucs over the bumbling Browns.

The video below shows Dirk Koetter’s postgame speech to his club. He implores them to think about how good they can be if they just put together complete games.

Also in this video, you can see a Jason Licht and his young son, and Licht consoling injured Kwon Alexander. There’s also a rare Ed Glazer sighting, the Buccaneers co-chairman is in the thick of the scene wearing sunglasses and a cap.

    whatever dirk….you almost screwed the players out of a win with that challenge….


  3. Pickgrin Says:

    This team can 100% beat any team in the league if offense and defense were to both play to or near their capacity for a full 4 Quarters.

    Problem is – the Bucs have only played that type of solid, complementary football maybe 4 Quarters total this whole year so far…

    thats not Ed Glazer thats a coach?

    For those thinking that Alexander’s knee injury would be career threatening, it couldn’t be too bad as he was standing in the locker room putting weight on the knee. If it was badly swollen he would be icing and elevating and if there was serious other damage he wouldn’t be able to put weight on it. Also, he had his MRI the next day, when a knee is too swollen they often wait until the swelling goes down to do the MRI. Tearing just the ACL doesn’t normally cause a ton of swelling, but torn PCL, MCL, LCL, meniscus, patella tears, and ruptured arteries can lead to major swelling. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is fine in eight months and back on a one year prove it contract.

    Agree with your observation. What’s exciting is that we really don’t know just how good this team can be. Start at QB…do we have a pro bowler or just an average guy. There are a lot of similar situations in our lineup…guys who may yet become stars…or simply fade away.

    When I really think about it though I’d say that describes the majority of NFL teams….everybody has talent…but is it enough…coaching? team chemistry? A LOT goes into this.

    Why does Buccaneers.com only show these stupid videos when #KLUELESSKOETETER talks after a win? Show it when they get their asses handed to them like in Chicago. This guy is such a phony .

    Hey Buddy….Buddy

    I’m going to try and chill about the whole thing. They’re our team and they are who they are, Koetter and Gerald included. Just hope he can keep turning things around and get better. I’m going to try real hard not to bash them anymore. Not sure how long I can make it, but going to try. Lightning play tonight = solid hope there.

  10. stpetebucsfan Says:


    Posted like a true fan. And yeah we always have the Lightning to ease a little of our pain.

    If the blame truly stops at the top then I guess the Glazers get their share.

    What is the major difference in the Bucs and Lightning…why is one a loser and the other a winner. The Lightning did not become winners until they straightened out their ownership. Davidson was a good move….Jeff Vinik was a freaking home run.

    Not holding my breath on the Glazers selling anytime soon however.

    The Bucs look like a middle of the road .500 team. Waiting to see some above average wins against favored teams. The Bengals look ripe for the plucking so Bucs beat Bengals.

    “Waiting to see some above average wins against favored teams. ”

    Were you not around in weeks 1-2 lol?

  13. denjoe Says:

    If they had a good coach maybe they could do it.

  14. Rod Munch Says:

    Dirk taking the ball out of Fitz’s hand at the end of the game and punting the ball away is one of the all time stupid calls in team history. If he had any level of football IQ and any feel for the game he knew, for a fact, there was zero chance he’d get the ball back. Plus you have to stop them in either case, so if you go for it an fail, you still must stop them, they kick a FG and you get the ball back with a chance to win the game. But nope, the dummy punts and other dummies say that’s the right thing to do since the coaches handbook from 1961 says that is what you’re supposed to do and you always go by the coaches handbook from 1961.

    Isnt Dirk included in that complete game? Stop effing up Dirk.

    @ Brandon says

    Tore my Right knee Meniscus …to the bone,
    They could not save it…so…it was Arthroscopic knee surgery.
    You have your knee in a bag.
    You flex the knee in the bathtub. …scream some …yes it hurts.
    It however is needed activity immediately after surgery.
    In the old days…they cut your leg open and your muscles went to jello in a year.
    This surgery has you back in 6 weeks.
    I returned to play Hockey as a Goalie in Elite Leagues
    While also scrimmage in the summer with NHL,Europe, NHL farm teams players.
    Understand what it means to work thru an injury …and passion want to keep playing.

    Had 3 pins in a finger in my glove hand,
    Broke my collar bone.

    Injury and return is a big deal …different of course with each individual.
    Optimism is key…
    Just try like hell… and eat the pain.

    Best wishes to Kwon Alexander.

    Yes you can Kwon : )
