    More bad news on injury front for our Bucs. RB Antone Smith and DE Howard Jones both appear to have suffered season ending injuries. WR Mike Evans and LG Kevin Pamphile are in concussion protocol.

      I just saw that. I don’t think I’ve ever sen a team , a Bucs team anyways, hit by injury like this one has been. It’s borderline absurd.

    I’m a ’76er and I am in full support of a culture change for our team. However before you can establish a new culture you need to abruptly end the old one. It starts with ownership openly coming out and stating Dirk Koetter and Jason Licht will be our leaders for the next four years. Next, put Doug Martin on IR and attempt to get something for him in a trade. Next, launch Grimes, Verner (whatever he has done behind the scenes to be in Dirk’s outhouse must be worthy of South Park), Cecil Shorts, and Demar “yellow flag” Dotson. Lastly, if J.R. isn’t ready to play by training camp, move Donovan “Taco Tuesday” Smith to guard.
    In the upcoming draft, draft Dalvin Cook, two safeties, a #2 WR, a center and two defensive ends. We need players in free agency who aren’t soft mentally. We need players who want to wear red jersey’s at home (we lose the heat mind game every week and the opposing teams, wearing their dark jersey’s still kick our butts) and don’t get overwhelmed by new schemes. Its getting harder and harder to say….Go Bucs!

      Amo, hit the nail on the head there. Couldn’t agree more. Was going to mention Cook in a previous post, but thought for sure I was going to get the FSU homer designation. When the fact of the matter is, he’s the most explosive player in college football behind a terrible offensive line.

    Then he’ll be right at home cgmaster27!

    They need to do a Todd Bowles when he was in AZ. Blitz til they can’t Blitz no more. I saw the press conference and Koetter said they tried some Blitzes. Damned if you do and Damned if you don’t.
    Well keep at it, that way even if you give up a score, you wont be on the field for 8 minutes like the first drive after halftime. You could see GMC was gassed when they got to the goal line. But if he comes out, it gets easier for Atlanta. Put those linebackers to work, they aren’t covering anybody anyway.
    I think they did one stunt on the line the whole night. Come on guys, get at it.

    i know Koetter is not a scientist, but perhaps he can take some advice from one – good old A. Einstein said, “insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results”….like when you rush only 4 Dlinemen and expect that they’ll start pressuring QBs, even though they never do….

    One suggestion that should be considered is have the D.C. work from the sideline. Coach Smith has assistants that can see things develop from above. The defense needs face-to-face communication with their coordinator.
