You come to this conclusion exactly... how?

I mean, according to many years ago, Marvin Lewis = Tony Dungy...

The more I look at Craig Johnson, the more he seems like a really good fit for the vacant OC position on Raheem's staff. The guy is 48 years old and he has a nice resume, though no NFL OC experience (he's got years as a college OC) but that doesn't mean he's not been heavily involved in the Titans game-planning and management. He'll have some really experienced coaches backing him in guys like Richard Mann and Pete Mangurian.

You want to run the football more successfully? I believe Johnson would be a guy who could elevate that part of the Bucs offense. From his bio, we see that under Johnson, VMI's offense ranked fifth in the nation in total offense in 1990 and first in rushing offense in 1991. At Maryland he was the offensive coordinator for two years (1997-98) and in his last season the Terps led the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing offense (235 yards per game avg).

As a QB coach, he knows what a good running game can do for the productivity and efficiency of your QB. Here's a link to his bio at the Titans Web site:

Though his name may not "leap off the page" at you, I think Johnson might be a guy who has a shot to be a fine success as an offensive coordinator.

We invested high draft picks on our o-line. We lets use them to their fullest potential. Lets get our own version of smash dash! can Johnson develop a young QB?

I have no problem with him, he just didnt develop Vince Young well. But he did have Collins playing some nice ball.

He had success with some other guys, and to be honest, he wouldn't be coaching the QB's anyhow.

In all honesty, I don't know enough about the guy.  I'll defer to the FO.

What I do want is a running game and passing game (not that my 'wants' matter.)

(Why is it I get the feeling this thread is a board 'measurement' for the bucs FO?)

Hard to say anyone would have been able to develop VY.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

BM:

It isn't. But I believe the Bucs do have a real interest in him, so he could end up here.

Vince Young played well under him.  Yes he was benched, but that had more to do with Young inability to handle criticism and let mistakes go.  As Madden would say, a QB needs a short memory.  Vince Young seems to have a long memory.  That's not the coaches fault.  Vince Young earned the rookie of the year award under Johnson.  Hard to say he didn't develop him.
