    Can’t make chicken soup without chicken.Coaches need players like a top RB and a O-LINE that can block and pass protect. A coach can only take you so far then the players have to take you the rest of the way.

    Bucs’ Lovie Smith confirmed that new OC Dirk Koetter is recovering from hip surgery. Walking again and will be in office Monday, he said.

    Oh, Oh! Here we go again. What’s next? MRSA part Deux? Just kidding! Don’t want to jinx a team that seems to have enough bad luck on it’s own. Go Bucs!

    “Whenever a guy is able to put 59 points on you, on the other side, you have to be pretty excited about bringing him on board,” Smith said.

    Good news Lovie, if beating the breaks off this team under your reign is a hiring criteria then the coaching pool is deep, real deep, like an abyss. You are aware though, that Koetter didn’t put up nearly that many points on ANY other team they played this year? In fact, the Falcons only won 6 games & 2 of those wins were…you know…against you. So I’m not really excited. Honestly, I kind of think this is another poor hire on your part. But hey, what do I know? Truth be told, I’m enjoying getting a new HC every 2 years, rebuilding, and going no where fast.

    Funny Lovie would mention ATL’s (and Koetter’s) offense as Matt Ryan and that crew, Devin Hester and those guys. I always thought Roddy White and Julio Jones had more to do with ATL’s offense even thought they never played for the Bears…..LOL

    Last year the offensive mantra was speed in space. We ended up with a little speed, but no space. This year it is balance. How about balanced speed in space.

  6. 6


    For the love of Mike, can we please give the balanced attack a rest….we have Evans, VJax and ASJ (remember…the Dunkaneers), and we’re about to add Mariota/Winston….throw the damn ball!

    EastEndBoy…I completely AGREE! Lol. But throw it to OUR guys, not theirs.

  8. 8


    Lol eastnboy and 1bigone I agree as well. But it’s hard to be the dunkaneers when your point guard is Luke ridinour esque.

    I’m not going to criticize the hire until he’s had a chance to do his job. I know this much. We can win 2 games and be in the bottom five of the league in nearly every offensive ranking with Elmer Fudd’s offense.

    Balanced attack? If you want to run the ball and be balanced you better fix this God awful mess of an O line Lovie created. What a joke they were. Pretty sure Arroyo wanted to be balanced and run plays were called they just didn’t work. At least I don’t think this offense could get worse. No moves this offseason have excited me or even begun to get the bad taste of last season out of my mouth.
