Jason Garrett Has Strange Bucs Observation

September 9th, 2022

NBC’s Jason Garrett.

When last seen on a football field, former Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was an offensive coordinator with the Giants and he walked off The Licht House field in shame.

Hours later, he was unemployed.

So perhaps Garrett is a little bitter at the Bucs because hours after his offense only put up 10 points against a beat-up Bucs defense last year, Garrett was canned by the Big Blue.

Garrett now works for NBC Sports and was speaking yesterday about Sunday night’s Bucs-Cowboys game. The Cowboys have an advantage, Garrett thinks, because the Bucs won’t run much due to two guys making their first NFL start on the Bucs’ offensive line.

And as a result, Garrett believes Tom Brady will be a much lesser quarterback. Garrett’s quotes come from NBC Sports by way of Jon Machota of The Athletic.

This makes no sense to Joe. Do the Bucs become a little disjointed at times when they can’t run? Yeah, what teams don’t? But dang, no team in the NFL was more imbalanced than the Bucs last season when Brady led the league in passing. What is Garrett talking about here?

Brady put the ball in the air 719 times and had one of the best seasons of his unrivaled career. Hell, Joe harps on the “Ira Kaufman Podcast” often that the worst thing the Bucs could do would be to have a balanced offense and as a result, take the ball out of Brady’s hands. You want your best player to have the ball!

Maybe this is a reason why Garrett is out of football?

To be fair, Joe thinks Garrett’s analysis of what Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will do Sunday night is spot on.

    Love how you pick a different ‘media pinàta du jour’ Joe (in this case, Jason Garrett). He’s right though about us having ‘some issues’ on our OLine (no news there), but his statement that ‘Tom Brady is at his best when they’re balanced’ is somewhat of a stretch. Heck last year we only ran against the Cowboys 14 times; Brady beat them with the pass. If we hadn’t turned the ball over 4 times (2 INTs, 2 fumbles) it wouldn’t have been close.

    What do yo expect from the clapper himself

    ^ the clapper. 😂

    Ok It’s a guy with an opinion. That’s about all I see here.

    Goedeke is the only concern for me.

  7. JA Says:


    Good take on Joe’s, “media pinàta du jour.”
    Joe knows what it takes to invoke ire amongst his readers (needle moving?). And it ain’t much.
    If any scribe or media voice doesn’t have the Bucs winning the Super Bowl, the wolves come a howling with their own ‘Blood on The Tracks’ version of, ‘Idiot Wind.’

  8. geno711 Says:

    It’s a passing league and the Bucs have been one of the best at it. Why change what works? Did Josh Allen change what he does last night. He passed and he even ran because that moves the Buffalo offense.

  9. Trey Long Says:

    Garrett is punchy from losing to Brady so often. Brady has won Super Bowls with virtually zero running game so this opinion is just silly.

  10. Infomeplease Says:

    Let see who’s single covering ME. Or JJ. Or RG. Or CG if he can go!!!!!! Should be fun for TB12!!!! LFG!!!!

  11. Infomeplease Says:

    This year the defense will dominate most offenses!!! Let the fin begin!!!

  12. JVZ Says:

    Judged by a loser………

  13. VATom Says:

    I think when you look at the O Line the issue is that as the game progreses opposing teams will be able to anticipate the run lanes being the edges and certainly stunts and blitzes up the middle will be dialed up with alarming regularity until the middle proved they can hang.

  14. Allen Lofton Says:

    I think Joe is spot on why Jason Garrett is spot on – his analysis is why he no longer coaches in the NFL.

  15. Craig Says:

    Brady does have a problem with a two high safety lineup.

    That is because you can’t know what they will do against certain wide receiver groups.

    I think the Bucs will run more, not because of the O-line, but because of Jones and maybe Gage being in the line up.

    His relations with them are not yet set in stone.

    The second half of the game might be wild, if Brady sees what he expects from them.

    I don’t expect an offensive or defensive explosion from the Boys. Dak is only on page with one receiver and Zeke is fading. Defense will have rely on Micah Parsons to be a defensive spark.

  17. Jim Says:

    Jason Garrett is a dummy and not in the NFL anymore. Doh!

  18. Josh Says:

    Dude apparently has never watched the bucs if he thinks our offense has ever been balanced with Tom Brady at qb. We throw close 75% of the time. And please stop showing Garrett’s face on TV, his creepy smile and face scares my children.

  19. SB~LV Says:

    No one knows

  20. Scooter Says:

    The Big mystery is how did the Gingerbread Man remain as the Cowboys Head Coach as long as he did.

  21. Goatfarmer Says:

    How many games in are Sowgirls going to wish they had Jason Garrett back as head coach instead of Mike McCarthy?! Garrett is pitiful but McCarthy is even worse.

    Incidentally, who is the hag on GMFB? Good night nurse, she could make a freight train take a dirt road.

  22. Joe Says:

    who is the hag on GMFB?

    You’re going to have to be a little more specific for Joe. What time was she on? What show? Where was she broadcasting from? Color of hair, etc.

    Ira is very good friends with a woman at NFL Network that would likely be your last chick selected of the gang. When Ira said of the possibilities of which NFL Network babe would show up to Bucs camp, when he mentioned who that was for him and how he looked forward to see her, Joe nearly fell out of his chair. It’s like, Ira, just because you are old doesn’t mean you have to act old.

  23. Letsbucinggo Says:

    Bucs only run on first down.

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    “Maybe this is a reason why Garrett is out of football?”

    Too bad this line of thinking doesn’t occur to Joe more often when quoting Dummynick’s opinions so often…….

  25. FrontFour Says:

    Idiot. It’s the exact opposite. Goedeke’s strength is in the run game, same with Mason. To get these guys going pounding the ball in the run game is just what they need. And to keep TB safe. And to slow down the pass rush. Tom still throws the ball 40 times, but Fournette needs to have a big game.

    That’s just a terrible thing to say. But I’m writing it down ’cause I laughed my are off!
