“I’m A Coach And He’s A Player. I Think Our Relationship Is Fine.”

December 27th, 2018

Not a lot of warm and fuzzy chatter by Dirk Koetter today when asked about his relationship with DeSean Jackson.

For those who missed it, ESPN Live aired a segment yesterday about Jackson had how things soured between him and his head coach, escalating during a Nov. 28 incident.

Today at One Buc Palace, Koetter said he didn’t see the report but made little effort to call it baloney.

“I’m a coach and he’s a player. I think our relationship is fine,” Koetter said, after suggesting he’s no fan of ESPN and saying Jackson is a proven and “outstanding player.”

What really happened is unclear. Joe suspects Jackson and Koetter clashed just before, during, or just after this specific meeting.

Perhaps the Bucs, in a covert effort to help tank Sunday’s very meaningful game when it comes to 2019 draft position, asked Jackson to call ESPN this week and create a last-minute distraction.

    I wonder if all the fans bashing djax bashed him in Weeks 1 and 2…

    Embarrassing how dumb this fanbase is

  2. Locked In Says:

    Maybe he’ll feel differently after Hugh Glazerhouse hires our next Vince Lombardi?

    Draft day trade….

  4. Eric Says:

    We can lose without any distractions.

    So clicking on link and going back to read that past article only shows that there was nothing written that could be interpreted as the potential start of a riff between coach and player. If anything, Koetter publicly acknowledges Jackson was open 5 others times and “we” didn’t get him the ball. Sounds like he’s calling out America’s QB Joe and whoever the hell the play caller was back then, certainly not Jackson.

    Very telling that Fitz can consistently hit Jackson deep but Winston cant

    DJax caught a deep ball touchdown from Jameis people just delete that from their memory.DJax can go play somewhere else next year.He doesn’t play with heart he can return punts whenever he wants but rarely does.Dude isn’t close to being our best wideout he’ll he may not even be our second best.See Ya

  9. Eric Says:

    Not true Djax fell way off with Fitz starting too.

  10. Bird Says:

    Desean Jackson smear campaign? Is this another excuse for you know who?

    The guy had only three 100 yard games this year. All when fitz was qb. Remember those 1st 3 games. Everyone was saying how happy they were he was on team.

    Fitz faltered and in comes Jameis who can’t throw a deep ball. Most wide receivers like OBJ and Antonio Brown complain when they don’t get the ball. He should be upset he didn’t get the ball.

    Now he is a cancer to some fans and media. Meanwhile, the players and coaches like him. Except Koetter all of a sudden?

    This fan base is pretty bad.

  11. Eric Says:

    He had four td catches all year. One in his last ten games, thrown by Winston vs. Cincy.

    In the last three games he started with Fitz he was nowhere near 100 yards receiving and didn’t score at all.

    The guy is over rated and a locker room and on field cancer. Good riddance.

  12. Hodad Says:

    D Jax’s production fell off after the first two games because D coordinators figured out how to stop what we were doing. While everyone is quick to blame Jameis, what happened when Fitz started again? Nothing, there was no more magic between the two. If there had been we would’ve continued to win, and score with bombs floating into Jax’s hands every game. Didn’t happen, other teams adjusted we didn’t.

  13. Buccfan37 Says:

    I mean he is wide open and that speed doesn’t come cheap. I can see his point somehow but what you see is what you get with these Bucs.

    boo hoo……

    You can’t see the forest for the trees. Desean Jackson role is to force the defense to cover EVERY part of the field instead of the first 20 yards.

    But dumb dumb Jamies can’t complete a deep pass to him, or know how to throw in the openings created by djax cuz a defender is 30 yards downfield

    Djax opens the short to intermediate pass

    Rip out the Cancer! Bye bye Diva Jackson

  17. Joel Says:

    Get rid of the real cancer. #93. No impact since 2010.

    This website is amazing. Excuses after excuses for Jameis. None for a proven superstar like Jackson.
