Kicker Comedy

November 16th, 2018

Tip your waitress, please.

Oh, man these are dark days to be a Bucs fan.

The team is losing. Again.

The coach is on the proverbial hot seat.

The defensive coordinator is fired.

The franchise quarterback has been benched, maybe forever.

The offensive coordinator had his wings clipped (at least for the time being).

The Bucs bounced a(nother) kicker.

But at least Bucs Bit-O-Honey-snacking, Ozark-watching coach Dirk Koetter hasn’t lost his sense of humor.

The poor soul Koetter has been absolutely tortured by kickers in his four years here, the past three as head coach. Joe is convinced 20 years from now, Koetter will hollering in his sleep about blankety-blank kickers. He probably already does.

So props to Koetter for still having his sarcasm as today he was asked if he was happy with new kicker Cairo Santos.

“Yes,” Koetter deadpanned. “So far, of course. He’s the only kicker we’ve got, we better like him.”


Sometimes watching this team (much less coaching this team), if you didn’t have a sense of humor, you’d be a raging alcoholic.

    If Santos flames out, we need to get another holder. Someone on the team can definitely hold too so if Cairo cant get it down we need to change Anger.

    It looks like the whole team gets kicked to the curb after the season. All we need is Dandy Don Meredith singing “Turn out the lights the parties over!”

  3. Rod Munch Says:

    Should fire the special teams coach, I mean why not fire him? The return game is awful, punting has gotten worse each year, kicking is terrible and special teams coverage is generally bad. Fire that guy whoever he is, even if it’s nothing he’s doing, he must be sacrificed to the ghost of Roberto or he won’t lift the curse.

    its crazy that us fans who watch the game can give suggestions to help the team but the ones in charge don’t see what we see

  5. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Neil O’Donahue trying to kick the ball and whiffing. It’s a Bucs life

  6. Locked In Says:

    Agree with the Rod – actually, trying to think of what coaches we have that are worth keeping??? Monken. I liked the Buckner hire but I’m not sure I’ve seen much improvement on the dline.

    “If Santos flames out…”

    There is no doubt that he will ‘flame out’. He sucks. And it won’t be the fault of the holder.

    The problem is not the holder, people. It is the low quality kickers they keep bringing in. People are looking to blame the holder when the real issue is that we can’t find a good kicker. Period.

    Heck, our last four kickers ‘flamed out’ at their previous teams, and a few were unemployed because of it.

    I really don’t get why fans cannot understand that.

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    At this point, bringing Aguayo back would be smarter than the guys they are signing.

    I don’t think it’s funny at all

  10. Slugglife Says:

    Time to take a flyer on an undrafted free agent kicker.

    Can’t get any worse, I mean there’s hundreds of young college kickers that didn’t make the pros. Bring in two and let them compete.

    I see zero downside.

    If you don’t laugh at this, youll go insane. At least we were 2-0 at some point. That’s gotta count for something.

  12. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    20 years from now Koetter will be sitting back on his millions of dollars not giving a F about the Bucs

  13. Rod Munch Says:

    Roberto never missed a kick that mattered and had an excellent preseason for the Chargers, was the better kicker, but the Chargers didn’t want to deal with the idea of him being a headcase and cut him – and then guess what happens? They have kicking issues all year and cut their kicker. Who else did Roberto curse? Well look at the Bears, they had and cut Roberto, and their kicker last week missed 5 kicks – 5!!! You need to appease Roberto somehow so he removes the curse. Maybe send him the foot of Chris Baker, I’m not sure.

  14. SB Says:

    What do you think of your teams execution Coach?” ……..” I’m in favor of it”

  15. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Dumpster Fire can be put out by Fire… Firing Licht and Koetter

  16. FortMyersDave Says:

    #7423 has a point. Every player who has signed a fat contract with the Bucs only to be a bust along with the coaching staff and GM will all have fat bank accounts when this train wreck of a season is over. The only people left holding the bag are the fans, particularly those who spent hard earned coin on season tickets to get worked over like Marcellus Wallace in the Pawn Shop or Ned Beatty out with Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight on the canoe trip up in Falcon country. Its hard to have any empathy for all these players and coaches who seem to have mailed it in…….

  17. UK Buc Says:

    It’s the (not so) special teams coach that needs to be canned. Catanzaro missed all his kicks wide right. ‘Aim a little to the left Chandler’, see, it’s not hard. !

  18. brooks55hof Says:

    @FtMyers. That’s just too damn funny. And the fans have been taking that way for years. As Charlie Harper says “ I want the spit….”
