    Dilemma..who to pull for

    Watching the Chargers not play against the Patriots is the most offensive thing I’ve seen on television in a long time. Apparently the Chargers are the worst team in the post season since Dungy’s Bucs.

    Beat off T; Beat off!

    When he's finished, Tundra's dick will look a bit like this:

    Bowles to Tampa

    Thank goodness. One of the better parts of the Arians hire to me was getting Bowles back in his sweet spot as a defensive coordinator. If Arians gets the machine running right again, maybe by the time he's ready to call it quits Bowles will be ready to be a head coach again.

    Koetter offered the Falcons OC

    No question, Koetter is a solid OC. He's just not a solid HC.

    It's going to be Arians

    Tundra just stated a preference. There's not anything wrong with that, and it's a solid step up from the goat/llama thing he's had for a while.

    What To Do With Winston?

    I get you, BFFL, but I never said he doesn't have the ability to score. I said he's never evidenced a CONSISTENT ability to score when it's needed. There are games when he'll make absolutely beautiful throws, and then there are still far too many games when he'll do terrible shit on the field. If we were seeing a lot less of the latter and a lot more of the former I'd be solidly in the Winston fan-boy camp, accusations notwithstanding. As it is, it's like the one girl Seinfeld dated that was beautiful in the right light and hideous if you caught her in the wrong light. No matter how pretty the pretty is, the ugly is what you remember - particularly if you see it a lot. Winston's been ugly far too often at this point in his career to get us to maintain focus on when's he's been beautiful.

    What To Do With Winston?

    For me, the rape accusations are just icing on the shit cake. When we drafted Winston, I thought he was a better pick than Mariota, because I thought he was probably in a system that better prepared him for the NFL and I thought he had a better frame for the job in terms of both height and durability. I was excited at the premise of a QB that could potentially light up the scoreboard regularly, putting us in a position to win at any time, even if we were a couple of scores behind in the fourth quarter. That's what a high tier QB does - they keep every game within reach because they are generally always dangerous. But Winston's calling card has not been late game heroics or dynamic, overwhelming play. It's been inconsistency and poor ball security. Over the course of the 11 games he played this season, he threw one less interception than he did his rookie year, and he started five more games as a rookie. That's not trending the right direction. He's never evidenced a consistent ability to score when the team really needs it. He's never evidenced an ability to eliminate or reduce his penchant for giving the ball away. I'm aware that some interceptions are not the sole responsibility of the QB, but when you've created a reputation of being a turnover machine, you have to start displaying a trend the other way. Ultimately, what Licht said means that Winston's a Buc next year no matter what. Hopefully the next regime can get him to minimize those problems. If not, he's Freeman 2.0. One winning season without a playoff appearance, and then nothing but obscurity and untapped potential to follow.
  8. Both would be an improvement. Neither will be a Bucs coach.

    What To Do With Winston?

    WInston is not, nor will ever be a 'great' QB. I think the best we can get out of him is serviceable. He is flat out terrible at long range connections, and to not have those throws in your arsenal keeps him away from the potential of 'great' IMO. But there are flashes that he could be serviceable to good. He needs someone to drill into his head that his arm isn't the world's best. That NFL players are fast enough to make him look ordinary, and he needs to take the opportunities available and actually read the field rather than trusting his arm and forcing the ball where it will be at the greatest risk. I think he's young enough to have potential, but the ceiling of that potential has come down markedly since he was drafted. I don't think he'll ever be completely coached out of the boneheaded decisions he makes. I think he's got a nearly child-like brain at times, and utterly fails to consistently exhibit lessons learned from prior seasons.
  10. Given his off the field issues, nobody is giving Fournette a prime contract. An incentive-laden contract is the best he can expect.

    Head Coach

    Keeping a coach as ineffective as Koetter has yet to prove to be a good decision in the NFL. As repetitive as hiring a new coach is for this franchise, it's really the only option.
  12. Sometimes a backup somewhere else turns into a powerhouse in a new joint, so I won't necessarily fully endorse the 'no retreads' concept - but completely agree on Flacco.

    Head Coach

    McCarthy is the best possible option, IMO. I think he'll put together a solid quality coaching staff. Which means he'll probably go somewhere else. .

    Who Coaches the Bucs in 2019?

    I'd like to see Jim Harbaugh interview here. I'd like to see Mike McCarthy interview here. Either would be an upgrade, because both have had far more wins than losses. I think McCarthy will bounce back quickly in the NFL. I think Jim Harbaugh is a more talented coach than his brother. I don't have anyone else on the list, really - but I do think that promoting an existing assistant again would be a problem.
