Evidence Of Changing Offense

January 31st, 2021

“Whatever works, Tommy.”

Evidence has been thrown out by a couple of old quarterbacks (here and here) that an ancient dog like Bucs coach Bucco Bruce Arians can learn new tricks.

And now, the eye in the sky which doesn’t lie comes with more.

NFL analyst Seth Walder of BSPN noted that film study showsthe Bucs are running a lot more crossing routes with their receivers. That was a successful staple of the Belicheats last year when park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking Tom Brady was their quarterback.

To Joe, one sign of a good coach adjusting to his players’ strengths. It seems Arians has done that with Brady.

Now you may wonder why Arians wasn’t doing this earlier in the season. Well, Joe would answer that with, “Who cares? The Bucs are in the Super Bowl!”

    It is very noticeable that on short and medium routes we are finally being more creative with our weapons. We still take shots down the field too which is great. Leftwich has done a terrific job this year adjusting throughout the season, adding new wrinkles to our playbook.

    35-24 Chiefs 🥺 hellavu year for our bucs tho. Tyrek is just that dangerous him n Kelce. To double him and Tyrek the entire game and hope that everyone else holds down man coverage during blitzes and 4 man rush is to much to ask for with the talent the Chiefs have on offense. I love my BUCCS but KC different that damn Mahomes is God like yo lol 💁🏾‍♂️

    Keep the Goat happy next Sunday and the franchise will be rewarded!
    BTW , it will be a GREAT coaching match up of two willie old coaches

  4. Brandon Says:

    I noticed at the Saints Bucs home game in 2019 that the majority of the routes were vertical routes with no outlet. It seems at the very least we are getting an outlet receiver on most plays. I’m not a big fan of checkdowns but I prefer that over interceptions and sacks.

    Don’t understand why we don’t give Evans crossing routes because he does really good on deep crosses. Had a big one against the Aints this year.

    Thanks for your support fedupbucfan but you need to cover all your bases don’t you?.

    “Now you may wonder why Arians wasn’t doing this earlier in the season.”

    Likely because our previous QB was not good at hitting a moving target.

    aFEDupBUCfan … You might have been fed up, but when the Bucs win the Super Bowl 35-27 next Sunday that’d be a great time to stop moaning & change your handle. We got this.

  9. NaplesBucsFan Says:

    Fedup how does KC plan to contain our much more successful offense than the one they played in November??? I’d love to have a talking head dive in to how KC’s D will have a hard time stopping the Bucs O. Seems no one is seeing that glaring issues for KC. Our D will make enough plays to get some stops and maybe a turnover or two and our O will definitely make them pay for not scoring or turning it over. Been saying it for a couple weeks, this offense is due for a 40+ game. Don’t be surprised when they drop it next Sunday!!!

    Imagine the adjustments needed to accommodate Winston…..and he still threw 30 INTs.

  11. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Brady was averaging 3 ints per game

    He was called the white Jaboo

    After the 3 ints game vs the Saints Brady threatened Leftwich bodily harm if he called another 20 yard out or comeback pattern

    No more ints and no more comeback routes to Evans where cornerbacks easily jump for pick 6s

    Brady forced the BA/BL twins to stop continuosly call those ancient plays

    Winston asked but was shipped to New Orleans”

    It’s Leftwich, Bruce just signs off on it. But you can be sure the season kinda turned when those whispers came out from Brady’s came that Bruce wasn’t working hard enough.

  13. Aceofaerospace Says:

    So we can’t cover Tyrek Hill and Kelce? So who’s going to cover Evans, Godwin, Brown, Gronk, Brate, Scooter, Fournette? Who’s going to block Vea and Shaq and JPP. Who’s going to beat Wirfs, Marpet, Smith, Jensen? This is going to be a great game and I’ll take our offense against their defense instead of their offense against our defense every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Go Bucs! Hoist another Lombardi!

  14. Liaastnfrmafar Says:

    Why does anyone have to double Kelcie? He isn’t fast. He only achieves if Mahomes gets time. Cover Hill with Safety help. The D will try to expose Stinnie & Smith, if they can hold their own Bucs O will be tough to stop. Harman & Watson aren’t slouches either. Mahomes turf toe could be a factor, that is an injury that lingers. David’s hamstring is a big factor to.

    People and teams get tired of BAs act
