    koeThere is a lot of concern now among Buc fans that other teams will reach out to Koetter and make him their head coach.
    The problem with that scenario is not every OC wants to be a head coach.
    For one thing being a head coach is a very grueling time consuming job. Steve Spurrier found that out much to his chagrin.
    The other is I don’t think Koetter has ever even interviewed for a head coaching position.
    Koetter’s has a well paying job with a head ooach who is known for hiring the best people he can and letting them do their jobs. He also has a very talented player at QB who is willing to put in a lot of work to improve himself.
    Would be strange to walk away from that.

      I agree, while Koetter is doing wonders, he just never seemed like he wanted to be a head coach. If he did, why didn’t Atlanta give him a shot? He’s got a great young QB that he can grow with and I think and hope this is a good thing for many years. People always ask why Brady is so damn successful and I say not only because of his skill, but because he’s been in the same offensive system his entire career.

    Did everyone take note how easily the Lions beat the Eagles? I hope we come with our game face and focus on this being a close and rough game. We have to get this win. Make it three in a role1 Go Bucs!

    1. 2.1


      The Eagles team we beat played hard but got exposed. The team the Lions played quit and didn’t play. Not the same game. This point was covered in the Eagles after game presser.
      And you’re right, we always have to bring our game face to win. But that’s not to say we win at the Colts, but that it is a winnable game!

      1. 2.1.1


        That’s how I observed the two games too macabee. Eagles looked totally in a fog playing the Lions.

    My greatest hope, has become my fear. Dirk’s doing such a great job, he’ll have to be considered for openings next year. So is he like most others who want to become head coaches, or can he be our Tom Moore?

    I hope our backup QB, Mike Glennon was listening to Hasselbeck.
