Scratch Zac Robinson (And Kellen Moore, Too)

January 28th, 2024

Nope.

Well, it was fun to dream for about 30 hours.

Former Rams offensive coordinator Zac Robinson last night decided to take the open gig with the Dixie Chicks, working with his former colleague Raheem Morris.

Joe sure was hoping Robinson might come to Tampa Bay for a couple of reasons.

The main reason was it was Robinson who first began Bucs quarterback Baker Mayfield’s comeback. Signed by Los Angeles late last year after getting cut by the Stinking Panthers, Robinson helped show that Mayfield still had life in his right arm.

Mayfield played good enough with Robinson that the Bucs decided to take a flier on him. Turned out well.

“This Joe” thought reuniting Mayfield and Robinson would be the best possible solution to losing former Bucs offensive coordinator Dave Canales to Carolina.

Another reason why Joe wanted Robinson, when is the last time an offensive coach who came from the McVay tree sucked? They are all really good.

So Joe was hoping Robinson would come to Tampa and move the offense forward a step.

Welp. We can all forget about Robinson.

Late night, per Jeff Howe and Lauren Merola of The Athletic, former Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore, who was expected to interview for the same gig with the Bucs, was hired by the Eagles in the same capacity.

    Thinking about this earlier: The Falcons and the Panthers moving towards Rams/Seahawks 2.0 and the Bucs losing their identity…..

  2. FortMyersDave Says:

    Hopefully Bowles and the Bucs are not the only ones standing when the game of OC musical chairs stops. Hopefully the guys at One Buc Place have the wheels in motion and do not end up having to settle for their 9th candidate, they got a bit lucky with Canales, I doubt if lightning strikes twice in the same place.

    On an aside, the Bucs could make life a bit more challenging for Dave C in Carolina by refusing any interview requests until they have hired their own OC as the guys at OBP could simply say they want the potential new OC candidates to have a chance to retain any of the current coaching staff they want without worry of Dave C poaching them. I just think that there is no benefit for being nice to Dave C now that he is a rival who wants the Bucs to be worse than his team, do not help him in this endeavor, simple enough!

    As far as Thad Lewis goes, the Bills and Raiders want to talk to him as well and they have already, so if the Bucs are seriously considering him, then interview him as well but if they do not consider him to be a serious candidate, let him talk! Plus I believe he has been on the coaching staff long enough to get the Bucs some compensatory picks if someone poaches him. I just think that there is no benefit for being nice to Dave C now that he is a rival who wants the Bucs to be worse than his team, do not help him in this endeavor, simple enough!

    Terd bowl moving slow and missing out !

  4. FortMyersDave Says:

    Tye, the problem with imitating something that works: it takes time to do it and by the time a team like Carolina perfects it, someone else will have found the wrinkles to expose it just like how the Tampa 2 made famous by Dungy and Kiffen was awesome but eventually offensive gurus found ways to expose it.

    In other words, what has worked in Seattle and LA over the last few years will likely be less effective by the time Canales gets the right guys to utilize his system, ditto for Rah’s new OC. Copy cat franchises are often a day late and a dollar short. Carolina will be a 3 to 5 win franchisse next year with little help on offense and a D that might regress if they put too much coin on trying to better the bad O and the ATL, well, it is the ATL: mediocrity is their middle name though Rah could change all that.

    Now I get why fans are going “Chicken Little” and claiming the sky is falling as we are Buc fans and are used to bonehead decisions in the Creamsicle years of Bennett, Perkins, and Williamson as well as the Rah, Schiano, Lovie and Koetter decade of despair, but it is the ATL and Carolina the Bucs are competing against; basically the Jets South and Cleveland South. I am more worried about Chucky and the Saints.

  5. BucsFanSince 1996f Says:

    Our own in-house option may be as good as any other.

    If he needs help as a first time OC I bet BA will help him.

  6. sasquatch Says:

    Well, we should probably jump on Thad Lewis for OC before he goes somewhere else. You snooze, you lose.

  7. unbelievable Says:

    Yup. Def was the best candidate so far.

    Also, @Joe – scRatch?

  8. optimisticbucsfan Says:

    Damn…JL was too slow.

  9. Pewter Power Says:

    OK what is it year 7 coming for baker mayfield? Enough already with the looking for coaches who worked with him and all these specific schemes he needs. I get it people like baller but he’s a free agent acquisition. If he can’t function or adapt to the OC we bring in then he’s probably not the long or short term option. Personal opinion it’s gods let baker prove he’s that guy who can run the system in place.

    EVEN KYLE TRASK IMPROVED IN CANALES SYSTEM

  10. Joe Says:

    EVEN KYLE TRASK IMPROVED IN CANALES SYSTEM

    That’s true.

  11. Onetrickpony Says:

    Don’t worry we will get someone. There is always the bottom of the barrel.
    But as Sasquatch said , you snooze you lose.
    Besides it’s hard to find an OC with the mentality , to run up the middle, when you shouldn’t

  12. steele Says:

    Now that Benedict Canales out, and possibly Mayfield (and Evans) as well, is a full team reset, including a new HC, more likely? The entire offense is back to square one anyway. There is no continuity to save. Will Licht go for it, be bold?

  13. RiggedNFL Says:

    No one wants to be connected to Bowles.

    He only beats losing teams as a HC.

    Put racial politics aside and do what’s best for the franchise.

    Fire the imposter!!!

  14. Murph Says:

    I believe Lewis will become OC and Dorsey will become QB coach and passing game coordinator. Things will turn out fine.

  15. Elite Vita Says:

    Yes Mr Bowles sometimes IS slow to pull the plug.

  16. garro Says:

    Get ready for some Trask hate.

    Mayfield to the Falcons…

    Go Bucs!

  17. Dave Pear Says:

    Todd’s gonna look in that wide net and find out there’s nothing in it. Sometimes you need to move fast in a competitive world. Start fast? Not Todd. His offense never once scored an opening drive touchdown. But at least his defense would almost always give up a first possession score to the opposing team, so the defensive genius had that going for him.

    18-19 is a losing record. It’s Todd’s record with the Bucs.

    Jason and company better be scrambling!

    Go Bucs!

  20. rickym Says:

    When the Bucs interview for a new OC, it will be someone who has been turned down by every other franschise or someone like Canales who was completly off everyone elses radar.

  21. HC Grover Says:

    HC/DC/OC Bowles

  22. Dave Pear Says:

    We are lucky to have a head coach with an 18-19 record, who even managed to give Tom Brady his first and only losing season, who has a reputation for being a defensive masturmind but managed to finish the year with the worst passing defense in a passing league. But at least he could collapse gloriously at the end of games. Rams playoffs, Texans, Colts, Falcons, Lions.

    They’ll be clamoring to work as his offensive coordinator. Where his priority is to grind two minutes off the clock with a clever three and out, and then play ball control defense by giving up 9 minute touchdown drives. This way, you never lose by more than three scores.

    Brilliant. Not realizing this is prolonging the obvious.

  23. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Potential Hires (On Both sides of the Ball)

    Offensive Coordinator (s): 49er’s Offensive Scheme
    * Offensive Offensive Coordinator: Klint Kubiak
    * Quarterbacks: Klay Kubiak
    * Offensive line/run game coordinator: Chris Foerster
    * Assistant offensive line: Joe Graves
    * Assistant offensive line: Jim Bridges (Duke)

    Defensive Coordinator (s)
    * Defensive Coordinator: Dennard Wilson
    * Interior Linebackers Coach: Mike Caldwell

    Note: Both Dennard Wilson and Mike Caldwell have worked with Coach Bowles in the past. And Klint Kubiak was interviewed by Bowles last year.

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    Robinson & Moore were obviously 2 hot OC candidates for any number of teams. Makes perfect sense for Zac Robinson to go to Atlanta now that Raheem’s their HC. Also makes perfect sense for them to pursue Mayfield with all guns blazing. If that happens, there’s an excellent chance Falcons will win the NFC South this year.

    Also makes good sense for Kellen Moore to pick Philly as his next stop. He’s a decent OC IMO who got shafted in 2022 by the Cowboys. Dallas went 12-5 in both 2021 & 2022 with him as their OC (#1 & #4 offense in those 2 years) then fired him (fizzled in the playoffs … after they beat us last year). Chargers went 5-12 last year, underperformed, and fired him along with their HC Staley (losing 8 of their last 9 games gets people fired). However, they lost 7 games by 3 points or less; just couldn’t win the close ones.

    I’m glad that Todd Bowles isn’t in any hurry to just ‘hire anyone’. Tampa’s offense is still evolving IMO; we have some quality pieces, but it’ll take the right guy to bring it all together. Turned out that Dave Canales was a good fit last year (after the learning curve smoothed out), yet most everyone chastised Bowles initially for being too slow to pull the hiring trigger and for picking an ‘unknown’. Probably would behoove us all to be more patient this time around?

  25. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Klint Kubiak’s Profile

    Kubiak hails from the Kyle Shanahan tree, where his father, Gary Kubiak, worked with Kyle’s dad, Mike Shanahan, in Denver. It’s been a dynamic offensive scheme where quarterbacks have thrived.

    Kubiak has worked with a multitude of quarterbacks, including Ryan Tannehill, Teddy Bridgewater, Paxton Lynch, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, and Brock Purdy.

    During Kubiak’s one-year stint as offensive coordinator in Minnesota, the Vikings ranked 12th in total offense, 11th in passing offense and 14th in scoring.

    Kubiak’s work with Cousins (where he served as QB coach from 2019-20) was impressive, as Cousins passed for 7,868 yards and 61 touchdowns in that span.

  26. Dave Pear Says:

    Going slow will get Todd the basement of the division and a prolonged delayed start at his obvious next profession.

    Sad circus clown.

  27. adam from ny Says:

    dam, this guy did seem like a pretty nice fit with baker…but then again what do i know…

    with the names being tossed around, i was kind of gravitating towards him…

    gotta believe bowles, licht and the gang are on the case tho

  28. adam from ny Says:

    i gotta circle back and say i do kinda like cliff kingsberry…

    not too much talk about him – unless i missed it

  29. adam from ny Says:

    maybe the bucs are waiting on the monken situation to make a bigger decision – if you know what i mean…

    it’s probably good they didn’t just jump the gun and make a quick hire

  31. heyjude Says:

    This is on Licht.

  32. Hodad Says:

    Can’t believe some of you blame JL, and TB when someone signs with some other club. Of course Robinson was going to sign in Atlanta, he has a relationship with Rah. Same with Canales. The only job Dave was going to get this year was with Carolina, because of his relationship with Morgan. Personally I’d like someone who would be willing to wait for Todd to retire, then take over. Someone like Griese comes to mind. There’s someone right for the Bucs, JL, and TB will get it right just like last year.

  33. Scott Says:

    I say we roll with Thad and see what we got at this point. Stick with the same scheme and he can add in whatever he wants.

  34. heyjude Says:

    Agree Scott. Stay with Thad. Unless he wants to branch out to new horizons. His choice.

  35. Tbbucs3 Says:

    I knew the new deranged lunatic on this site Milton sounded a lot like David

    Dude still praises a soon to be 4 year career backup who lost every competition he’s faced including to Blaine Gabbert.

    If the user name Milton doesnt work out im sure Albert/Alberta are available.

  36. Aceofaerospace Says:

    No known decent offensive coordinator will want to work for bowels unless it’s their only option. Prepare for someone who is basically unknown with no competition for his services.

    David is time out now.

  38. Defense Rules Says:

    LUVMYBUCS … Good stuff on Kubiak. Thanks.

  39. Maddog Says:

    The Ravens will win the Super Bowl, then Bowels will ne released and they will Hire Todd Monken as our new coach. Fans are happy, Offense will be in good hands and we can move on and go for four!

  40. Popcorn Mike Says:

    Some of this stuff is no brainers. Robison work with Mayfield 1 season, he worked with Morris 3 years. Idki came with Canales from Seattle as his right hand man so I am sure he’s going to Carolina. Best move for Bowles is Lewis at OC and there are plenty of WR coaches available. K McCardell is one. The other problem Bowles has too is job security how long is Bowles gonna be in place. Will he be gone after next season? Like last year, I am sure a couple of those OC candidates went to a more stable coaching situation. However, with Bowles I am just gonna take a wait and see, no sense in getting excited about a particular candidate

  41. A Bucs Fan Says:

    Zac was always going to be with Rah. Brian Griese or Brian Johnson. Not Ken Dorsey please.

  42. Jeffs grandpa Says:

    Milton must be a 13 year old little boy

  43. Hodad Says:

    None of these guys care about Bowles job security, because there is no such thing in their line of work. Anyone who takes the OC job with any of these clubs wants to be one, and done. Take Zac Robinson for example. Next year when we fire Bowles, and hire him as our head coach, that could actually happen. That’s the way the NFL works. There will be a good O.C. coming to Tampa.

  44. Bucfan Says:

    AS long as Bowels is head coach – good luck getting an experienced O/C

  45. StormyInFl Says:

    No one worth a damn wants to work with a loser like Bowles. If they already have credibility, they go elsewhere.

    The bucs will be stuck with someone else’s sloppy seconds like Dorsey or Brian Johnson. Or forced to elevate a guy who was an intern two years ago.

    It’ll be a miracle if Licht can convince anyone worthwhile to sign on with Bowles.

  46. geno711 Says:

    Never heard of Zack Robinson being a major candidate until last week.

    No strong opinion on whether that was a good decision or not by Atlanta. Hope it was a bad decision.

    I liked Kellen Moore and Ken Dorsey a lot with the high level recent success.

    Glad Dorsey still in the running.

    I liked Brian Johnson last year but thought that his Eagles offense got much worse through the season. Seemed like that might be a sign that Shane Steichen was the real key behind the success of that Eagles offense.

    No opinions on the rest of them.

  47. NYbucsfan Says:

    No one with a brain wants to work with Bowles.

  48. geno711 Says:

    Bucs 3rd string quarterback, John Wolford, just did an article in The Athletic yesterday with his analysis of why OC’s and other offensive coaches need to use analytics to determine tendencies of their opponents and also self-scout their own tendencies right now.

    Good insight. I wonder if John Wolford might be willing to sit down with one of the Joe’s at some point.

  49. JD Still Says:

    Whole lot of desperate fantasizing going on , kinda like in the movie Titanic, when the crew was trying to figure out how to save the ship and then reality set in, well, who knows , looking on the bright side , maybe someday they’ll make a movie about this disaster.

  50. Murph Says:

    Coach Bowles should be able to attract good candidates due to the fact that Canales got a head coaching job in just one year. Totally disagree with those that think candidates wouldn’t want to coach with him. His coaches love working with him. A lot of loyalty over the years.

  51. Tackleblockwin Says:

    My guess is Bowles may want to promote from within the organization this time.

  52. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Defensive Rules

    Your welcome, Brugh

  53. QueGB5 Says:

    I’d hire either Thad or Brian Griese or Brian Johnson. I’d also trade for Justin Fields. His upside is higher than Baker’s. I’m good w/ Baker but I we can hit a home run (Super Bowl) w/ Fields.

  54. Beeej Says:

    An OC isn’t likely just quit his job to be an OC elsewhere else. The ones available are usually ones that got swept out with the fired HC. You’re usually looking at QB coaches, WR coaches

    Gee… why on earth isn’t Tampa a great choice?
    Oh ! Same reason as last year!
    Sucking hind teat again

  56. stpetebucfan Says:

    I find this blog immensely entertaining. I start by giving Joe props for his threads and the fairly loose moderation. JBF is the best site.

    But I’m also entertained by the contrast of the morons and the thoughtful, smart guys…D.R….LUV…GENO…these guys inform me and make ME THINK!

    Guys (If I were them I’d be calling them some juvenile insult) that simply come here to hurl hyperbolic insults with “clever” names like “Bowels” etc just make me frightened. Because I suspect these guys might also be registered voters.

    OK my weakness has been triggered on this thread as well.

    ACCOUNTABILITY!!!

    I read a post…”the only coach to lead Tom Brady to a losing record.”

    For the record…I totally respect Brady’s achievements. I’m the one here constantly pointing out Brady made Belichik( a losing coach without him).
    I absolutely give Brady credit for being and remaining the GOAT for the rest of my lifetime.

    Having said that….Real GOATS eventually die…Greatest of All Time’s are largely in the history books. By the time a guy can even be considered for GOAT status his career is on the downside because of the time required to put up the numbers for that status.

    Tom Brady came to the Bucs with an enormous chip on his shoulder. He was going to prove it was HIM not BB who led the Patriots to all those SB’s. Brady PROVED HIS POINT in spades as they say. I loved it on every level. The Bucs win a SB BB is shown up, but a huge motivator for Brady was removed.

    Prior to that SB season Brady’s wife had been urging him, nagging? him to retire. Have you ever seen a video of Jim McMahon. Poor dude is a veg from CTE!!! How about Alex Smith’s knee? Is his wife the villain for wanting to see the future grandfather of THEIR grandkids still cogniscent? Still able to take long walks maybe even still ski? Are SEVEN SB’s not enough? Tom promised Giselle he’d quit if he won another SB.

    Tom didn’t quit and it started going downhill in the 2nd year with the Bucs and hit ROCK BOTTOM in his final year.

    And so Brady who put off reckoning with his marital woes until the freakng pre season…Brady who was already getting really long in the tooth and was reduced to having a special arm and not much more…because he not only gave up his usual leadership success…the ENTIRE team slept walked through that final season and they sucked. And to lay all of that on Bowles is just BS!

    How about a reality check. Todd Bowles has made chicken soup out of chicken spit!! I’m not crowing Todd the next great coach. I am saying he has EARNED the right to finish his contract. He’s already done his part!! NO coach would have had an easy time transitioning from the larger than life failing Tom Brady to a cast off in Baker.

    If people here could be honest…and many are…they see that the verdict is still out on Todd. Let’s see what the Bucs do going forward. If they continue to slowly IMPROVE as they did last year…keep riding the horse. If he hits a wall don’t renew his contract.

    Kliff Kingsbury could be a great option for the bucs!

  60. Davenport Says:

    No one with any options will take the job.
    Its a one year gig and then back on the street after Bowles gets canned.
    8-9
    9-8

  61. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Bucs hired Canales mid February last year.
    I would expect they’ll hire someone in the next 3-4 weeks.

  62. Marine Buc Says:

    It would be nice for the offensive to have a little consistency – only had one season with Canales as OC installing this new system.

    The new OC should be Thad Lewis and Brad Idzik should be the new QBs coach.

    Or maybe give Brad Idzik the OC job and keep Thad Lewis at QB coach.

    Either way I hope the Bucs can hire an OC who will keep the same system in place rather than our players needing to learn an entire new system with all new language and schemes.

  63. bucsfaninOregon Says:

    Hire someone on the 49rs offensive coaching staff for OC and call it a day.

  64. Bojim Says:

    We will get a Good OC. Several goods ones out there. I do think the JL and TB got surprised a bit by Canales leaving and other teams jumping on their OC vacancies. Unless they were going in house anyway. We’ll see if they move faster now or have it under control. I think the latter.

  65. Ricki Says:

  66. Bucsfan007 Says:

    Bro there’s so much negativity about Bowles in these comments. Tampa fans are the worst! Canales wasn’t even good the whole year at all yet you have people in the comments screaming fire Bowles? Ok & then what’s next? Nothing. This blog is like negative cult gathering

    Probably but I have serious misgivings about an OC even more under Bowles defensive minded thumb.

  68. Dave Pear Says:

    I guess Brady retiring is the reason that Todd the Defensive Genius oversaw the worst pass defense in the NFL, a defense that couldn’t play zone and kept making the same mistakes over and over and over, a defense that collapsed like a house of cards in crunch time.

    That explains everything.

  69. Idroolpewter&red Says:

    Best choice…fire Bowles, hire Bill and Daniels.

  71. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Tony Marks Says:
    “The new OC should be Thad Lewis and Brad Idzik should be the new QBs coach.”

    Probably what will happen. And maybe they’ll be okay at it. Though it makes me wonder why Thad wasn’t given the job last year if he deserves it.

  72. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    stpetebucfan, Verdict is out…technically…but…part of the issue is that there have been some amazing names available that we all know are better and more proven.

    And that’s the crutch…we Tampa fans want ‘proven’ for a change.

  73. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    As to Bill Belichick…it is easy to claim it was all Brady…but Bill Belichick is a defensive coach and I could have sworn the Patriots had some great defenses during many of those years. That’s why, for a long time, Brady was called a ‘game manager’.

    Also, it was Bill Belichick who took the chance on a 6th round pick.

    And with Brady, he may have waited too long…but he still got us a ring. And if not for the marital issues, things may have turned out different. He didn’t take time off to deal with them…he took that time off to be on a Television Show. But I do agree it hurt the team.

    Except for the price, I would still take Brady over Mayfield. In a heartbeat.

  74. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Put it this way…if Licht Franchised Mayfield, traded him, and then signed Brady to a one year deal for $1 million…I don’t think anyone in their right mind would complain.

    I’d hire either Thad or Brian Griese or Brian Johnson. I’d also trade for Justin Fields. His upside is higher than Baker’s. I’m good w/ Baker but I we can hit a home run (Super Bowl) w/ Fields.

    I heard a stat that said that Justin Fields was the worst performing 4th quarter starter in the league last year so looked up one of his 4th quarter stats.

    I looked up Chicago Bears TDs in the 4th quarter on games Fields played. These are TD’s score offensively and not just by Fields but runs by the RBs as well:
    2023 — 8 TDs in 17 games played.
    2022 — 7 TDs in 15 games played.
    2021 — 4 TDs in 10 games played.

    Tampa this year had 12 TDs in our 17 4th quarters.
    I think Tampa was an average 4th quarter team. So, what does that put Fields at?

    Fields will get on TV a lot for his incredible runs and even some incredible throws, but I want a QB that understands better what it takes to win in the 4th quarter.

  76. stpetebucfan Says:

    Bonzai

    Drafting somebody in the 6th round is not taking a chance. First two rounds perhaps…#1 in the draft like Fameis a huge chance.

    I’ve always said I considered BB an HOF DC. But the facts do not lie. His win% without Brady is the same as Bowles!!! Literally. His player selection to replace Brady at QB has been a total failure which is why he got FIRED!!! A legend who was FIRED!

    Just go to Bill Belichik’s career stats and look for yourself. It’s actually quite dramatic.

    The reason he’s not getting jobs is because teams like the Falcons are not going to upend their entire management structure just to please the egomaniac.

    But how do we know that the fact he’s a loser without Brady is also impacting their thoughts.

  77. geno711 Says:

    Dave Pear, the Bucs were not anywhere close to the worst pass defense in the league. Are you looking at another year?

    If you are going to make a claim like that at least support it with something.

    Bucs gave up 23 pass TDs which was tied for 17th. They had 13 Ints which was also 17th. They were 7th best in points defense allowed in the NFL.

    The biggest problem for Bucs defense IMO is that they did not get pressure without rushing 5 or 6 guys.

  78. Mike Johnson Says:

    I won a 500 bet with my buddies. I knew he was going with RaH.fALCONS GET A qb AND THEY ARE BALLIN. rAH WILL HAVE THAT dEFENSE PLAYING AND FIRED UP.

    Ricki … ‘Nbdy wants to work with Bowles.’

    Ya, nobody except his players love him. And oh ya, his assistant coaches. And the horror of it all is that he could only muster a Top-8 finish during a rebuilding year. Must be a terrible leader of men.

  80. orlbucfan Says:

    Dave Pear is no Bucs fan. There are quite a few more in that camp on here. I, for one, know that we’ve got an excellent FO posse in Licht and krewe. Bowles knows he’s got to keep the continuity going for the Offense. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if the OC is an in-house promotion. Hey Joe, egomaniac Gruden is the Aints new HC? Is that for real?

  81. Dave Pear Says:

    Geno – last in yardage given up.

    Hey Joe. A name I haven’t heard come up- Frank Reich. What do you think?

    How exactly did “EVEN KYLE TRASK IMPROVED IN CANALES SYSTEM” as he didn’t do anything other than throw an incomplete pass.

  87. Murph Says:

    Mike Garafolo reported that the Bucs will interview Rams passing game specialist Jake Peetz for the OC. He is an interesting candidate.

  88. Josh McDaniels? Says:

    Not sure what McDaniels doing now. Head coach 👎🏻 but 6x Super Bowls, 3x as OC. Ya, he had the GOAT, but a ring is a ring.

    Geno – last in yardage given up.

    That is wrong as well.

    It is ok to admit you are wrong. It is not a bad trait.

    The bucs will hire Antoine Randle El of the Detroit lions, because of familiarity. He used to be on the bucs staff under Arians and he should bring all the things that coach Bowls expect, a balanced attack which is exactly what the lions showed against the bucs. Mark my words! Lol@

  91. Murph Says:

    Nine teams gave up more yards than the Bucs.

  92. Free Will Says:

    The bucs will hire antoine Randell El from Detroit lions as there o.c. Familiarity and the fact he brings a balance attack i.e. the playoff game against the bucs. GOOO BUCCS!
