Bucs Land Big Fish Full-time

August 12th, 2019

Sticking around.

Today Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians seemed to have a little more bounce in his step than usual. Joe thinks he knows why.

Sure, Arians is looking forward to two days of intersquad practices with the Dolphins this week. Arians said the final details of the practices will be hammered out tonight with Dolphins officials.

But a big name Arians had around the team this spring and summer will be joining Arians’ staff full-time. Per Greg Auman of The Athletic, quarterback savant and offensive consultant Tom Moore has agreed to stick around for the entire 2019 season. His specific duties and title are currently unknown.

Joe thinks it is fair to suggest America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, is getting ample support to move his career forward.

If Jameis falters this season, it isn’t like the Bucs didn’t bring in enough help for the former No. 1 overall pick.

    Works for me, I mean why not as long as the message is the same I’m good. The guy has a ton of respect in the league and I think Jaboo will listen to him

  2. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Bring em in!!! Don’t count against the cap……..1,341 coaches is fine with me.

    Stanford…. The most NFL ready QB…1st overall player drafted ….

    Didn’t I hear once that Tony Dungy wanted Moore to join him when he took over the job in Tampa? If that is the case, can’t you imagine what might have been with TD and his Tampa 2, and Tom Moore, an Offensive savant?

    Well put Joe….. every effort is being made to give Jameis the tools necessary for success. For all our sakes, let’s just hope that he has grown up and put away childish things. snf reaches his full potential.

    The man who won Dungy a title in Indy with Manning…

  6. Hodad Says:

    Love this guy. Tom Moore is a big reason why Dungy has a ring at all.

  7. Pittsshore Says:

    Another one of BAs homies that he is providing a paycheck. I would love to be a fly in the wall, behind closed doors, when they are laughing their arses off knowing they pulled off the heist.

    Trent Dilfer wasn’t Peyton Manning.

    Hurt Emanuel wasn’t Marvin Harrison.

    Reidel Anthony wasn’t Reggie Wayne.

    Dave Moore wasn’t Dallas Clark.

    Tom Moore is a savant, not Jesus Christ.

  9. B-Rad Says:

    Why end the story with a negative spin? That’s why you drive the real fans nuts Why not if Jameis turns into the franchise an we all think he can, he will have plenty of coaches to thank it would be interesting whom he gives the most credit.

  10. B-Rad Says:

    Or even better. It sure seems a lot of good offensive minded coaches want to work with Jameis. They all must see something in the young 1st round pick. Something we all see .

  11. mark2001 Says:

    Point well taken Joe…assuming we would have drafted or signed all those guys had Moore been the OC. I tend to believe he would have called for, and likely been listened to, by TD and Richie. Some might not have been brought in. And of course, we have no idea how the other drafts on the O side of the ball would have gone during those years….Anthony being an example I think there is good reason to think our offense would have been better.. and we weren’t that far away from beating the Rams. It might have been a dynasty, rather than a one timer. Just saying…and glad the guy is here.

  12. Bob in Valrico Says:

    This is too funny, Just when Jameis says he happy relating to Byron,they gave him another cranky looking white guy to relate too.

    All kidding aside , this is one coach that got a lot of knowledge to share with Jameis.

  13. Defense Rules Says:

    I wonder if Jameis realizes yet that EVERY time he touches the ball his play will be scrutinized in greater depth than probably any QB in history.

    Personally not at all worried about Jameis having ‘too many voices in his head’. Thankfully, all of his overseers … BA, Byron, Clyde & now Tom … are all experienced enough to know how to deliver a unified message.

  14. University of Seffner Says:

    Any room for Peyton Manning to join the Front Office or be an assistant coach? After all, he’s got a lot of familiar faces here.

  15. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Winning only 1 superbowl in Peyton Mannings prime (GOAT better than Giseles husband before injury)

    Is a negative in Kobe Fakers eyes”

    Welcome Tom Moore and thanks for staying on.

    and? Don’t you always fail more than you win in life?

  19. Barbosa Says:

    Love it. Quality coaching matters. Keep it up!

  20. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Tom Moore another great offensive mind but whose voice wins out? Moore coming aboard can also help Byron as he grows as an OC. Hope the qb whisperer gets some sweet nothings in jameis ears too

  21. Stanglassman Says:

    Great to hear he’s sticking around.

    Bucs working out working out veteran safety Marcus Gilchrist today. BA is sending Evans a message loud and clear. Hopefully he’s healthy and they sign him we need a savvy vet in the safety room.

  22. soberinsac Says:

    Great move, reminds me of when the warriors picked up Jerry West!! He was crucial in keeping Klay Thompson as he was about to be traded. Thats the knowledge and expertise I expect from Moore.

  23. tmaxcon Says:

    Not sure how collecting relics is going to help this high school roster win

  24. BucEmUp Says:

    If Jameis doesnt have a winning season with a fair defense and strong kicking game and the best coaching staff in Bucs history I will agree hes finished. I dont see that happeneing though. Jameis has NEVER been in this good of a situation. This will be fun to watch

  25. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Definitely a good thing to keep Moore around

    Tell Jameis to ignore Christensen and focus on Moore

  26. tmaxcon Says:

    Dungy references are laughable considering the ignorant one dimensional dungy the clown failed miserably in Tampa and wasted 6 years of sapp and the coattail riders careers

  27. tmaxcon Says:

    Dungy the clown is a colt who failed in Tampa let the bum go… its embarrassing reading the nuthuggers clinging to a failed past…. very sad clinging to a post season failure

  28. Reach87 Says:

    Great question for the next presser (vice assuming he’s going to focus on the QB then ipso-facto if the QB doesn’t win us a bunch more games, he’s toast). Moore also did some great work with O-lines in Indy, if I recall. Go Bucs!

  29. mark2001 Says:

    “Jameis has NEVER been in this good of a situation”… honestly, few young NFL QB’s have.

  30. BucsFan727 Says:

    Ya he looks like a hommie alright. Straight out of Compton. Just look at him. Hes so…… grumpy. Sounds like a non fan not wanting the Bucs to be any good. We get all kinds of fans from other teams in here. I hope you dont think they cant get in here. Heck they come here daily to get there Bucs bashing fix. Trolls got to eat too.

  31. JimmyJack Says:

    Don’t know much about Moore & would guess he has an old-school mentality like Bruce does. It’s what I love about this coaching staff and why I believe they will get results.

    I am still irked by Joes article yesterday saying that there are rumblings that some of our players think Bruce’s Training Camp is too tough. Whoever these players are are not going to make it here. They will be lucky to survive the season without getting run off……So maybe it’s a good thing to hear that……In only a few weeks of practice Bruce has already started flushing out the weak players and will surely systematic remove them like you would and type of bug or cockroach………If you ask me a lack of toughness has been what has held this team back. Much much moreso then a lack of talent.

  32. BA FAN Says:

    Moore will definitely be an asset! I know he can help our Offensive Linemen too. All Jameis needs to know is he was OC when Indianapolis won a Super Bowl!

  33. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    This is good news indeed. Arians is well liked in league circles and it shows. This is a long way from the Butch Davis Era of “consultation”. 😉

  34. Tony Says:

    I’d take Eric Berry over Marcus Gilchrist.

  35. Tony Says:

    Even Darian Stewart would probably work over Marcus Gilchrist.

  36. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Great to have great coaches, but Geez Louise how many does it take to get JW ready?

    Training Camp too tough? I didn’t think that was possible, under current CBA. I wonder how many players that remember two a days, there are left in the league?

  37. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Tony Dungy: One of the top NFL coaches in winning percentage.

    tmaxcon: Doesn’t know how to use capitalization.

  38. mark2001 Says:

    Jmark…regarding your question…” Great to have great coaches, but Geez Louise how many does it take to get JW ready?” And the answer is…drum roll…”As many as it takes”. In other words, this organization is bringing everything to the table to help Jameis be successful.

  39. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Sounds a little like CYA…..or another vacation salary.

  41. snookman Says:

    AWESOME!!!!! I HAVE FOLLOWED mOORE HIS WHOLE CAREER.THIS GUYS KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING. I noticed him on the bench on Friday night and I quickly googled and it said Tampa brought him in as a consultant for the pre-season. To have him aboard full time is such a positive. This season will be a step in the right direction for this franchise. NO im not saying playoffs but I believe we will see the beginning of a good team

  42. Confused Buc Fan Says:

    On the one hand, I don’t want to even acknowledge a regular poster on this site who consistently just makes ridiculous statements, on the other hand I just can’t let this one go. I won’t attack you personally TJ Maxx, but I will attack your statements. Calling Dungy a failure in his tenure with the Bucs is just idiotic. Yes, it’s unfortunate he couldn’t get us over the hump due to loyalty to offensive coaching staff that just weren’t getting the job done, but he MADE the Bucs that us fans from the Super Bowl era know and revere. Try to troll more intelligently in the future.

  43. SenileSenior Says:

    There seems to be some kind of duel going between Kobe and TMAX.

    Whew! Don’t get caught in the crossfire or any ricochets, Buc fans.!

    \:D/ … … >:)


  44. Buc1987 Says:

    Tmax…why do you suppose so many fans think so highly of Dungy?

    I mean it’s a ton of fans vs just you.
