  1. Jameis was fine.

    As Trevor mentioned; the throwing conditions were awful, the o-line is awful and Lamar Jackson was missing people badly when he attempted to throw outside of the numbers. Jackson was completing a higher percentage because he had the benefit of throwing against the Jason Licht constructed Swiss-Cheese-Defense.

    I remember one play where Jackson had been struggling badly and he was able to get a receiver running wide open right over the middle and was blessed to make one of the easiest throws in football which helped him start getting into a rythm, otherwise he was bordering on Tim Tebow levels of throwing at the time while the cameras panned towards Joe Flacco on the sideline.

    As noted there were a lot of opportunities during this game with poor execution. The Ravens literally gave the Bucs red zone field possession by touching a punt return at the worst possible time. There was the Ravens odd desire not to block Carl Nassib on several plays, the RB Dixon who got a personal foul to take them backwards 15 yards on a completed first down play in Bucs territory and an incredibly bizarre delay of game penalty when the punter was already on their own 31 yard line taking them back to their own 26.

    As much blame goes towards Dirk Koetter it wasn’t exactly John Harbaugh’s best day at the office either.

  2. Sorry Mark but you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth. To say Jamies is neutered and at the same time blame him for trying to execute a bad play called is double talk.

  3. I actually thought the Dirk Koetter hire was a rather unimaginative pick. It was almost a “f-you Glazer’s for making me fire Lovie Smith” hire. . . . I hoped for Dirk Koetter; but, my honest initial thoughts were that this is a standard coach, and not a innovative new guy on the scene. Dirk is the kind of guy who just takes ideas from someone else, and doesn’t really innovate on his own. He’s also a Al Davis vertical game type of O, which is somewhat interesting.

    • While the final call was the Glazer Babies there was absolutely no evidence it was done over the protest of Licht for whom both Lovie and Bucs fans can now share the regret of hiring.

      In fact if you go back to that time you see an oddly similar refrain about defensive failings…how odd, from Leslie to Lovie to Mike to Mark and the Defense is still made of Swiss Cheese? It almost makes you wonder if all the hours spent by PR writing critical articles of the coaches is missing some bigger point…but what could that be? 🤔

  4. Since the press are such critics of the GM and coaching staff and game plans and players….I would love to see an article on who should be the general manager, the new head coach, the OC, the DC, etc etc. and all the new players you think you could get the BUCS on a playoff track, good luck wont be an easy job

      Essentially a decent sketch of a GM hot board with roughly 10 minutes on Google would come up with:

      1. George Paton
      2. Joe Douglas
      3. Nick Caserio
      4. Trent Kirchner
      5. Will McClay

      Now since PR appears to be experts on coaching I would defer to them on the available head coaches out there 😉

  5. Agree with Trevor. No telling how the early drops/lack of effort early by Evans affected the game. People saying the Bucs aren’t quitting on Koetter didn’t watch the 4th quarter. 3rd and 1 line won’t block. 4th down no separation from receivers. Just looks like the players are trying to be respectable without truly trying to win.
