      Anyone notice how much faster the plays were coming in last night compared to previous years?  Our QBs had time to make adjustments at the line, audible, etc. with no real threat of delay of game penalties.  Last year, I swear the team was breaking the huddle with less than 10 seconds on the play clock on almost every play.  The only thing that can account for this difference is the play coming in from the sideline faster than it has in years past.  I thought that the play calling last night was very good.  I have wondered how much of an impact having a real OC would have this year, and so far, it seems like it might have a major impact.  Very glad that Koetter is here.

      you dont say?take that into account, take into account the headless chicken was the one recieving the plays, and take into account our defense was learning a new system.  and we were competitive in almost every game.

      I was saying this last night.  The difference between last year and this (even when the back ups are in) just from what seems to be a system and a “prepared-ness” factor is like night and day.  I will always wish Arroyo well…but damn he was in over his head.

      Of course having a bona fide OC can make an incredible difference…I mean, that is why every team in the league has one. That being said, I was almost giddy at time to see solid play calling and good execution. I am mostly looking forward to Koetter turning up the pace and letting the Bucs PUSH the pace...I think there is hay to made in that aspect of our offense.

      Last night was the first time in probably 3 years that I felt like I was watching a real football team, and that was a pre-season game. Besides the fact that they looked more professional (getting the calls in/audibles/etc), they actually looked like they had some zip and excitement. They weren’t stuck in cement. It was fun.

      Agreed.  It was refreshing.  Bucs also successfully completed a number of screen passes (which we have had issues doing well for years) and an end around (for a first down no less).  Execution seems to be improving under Koetter as well.

      What I loved was hearing winston make the calls at the line switching up plays, making protection adjustments, declaring Mikes, etc.He was confident and seemed like he knew what he was doing and the rest of the team seemed to really be on the same page. That's a sign of great coaching and prepared players. Now we just need to get better at blitz pick up and cut down on some of the penalties, although I think the refs were calling some really ticky tacky penalties.

      I am extremely confident our offense will be much improved with the addition of Koetter. He has experience as a HC and OC in both College and Pros. Solid hire by Licht.

      Koetter is awesome. The best decision Lovie Smith has ever made was to hire this guy. I was impressed with his play calling in ATL and the production he got out his playmakers DESPITE their OL being putrid and a running game that was non-existant.

      We really haven’t even seen a lot of the offense will be doing, and they still look good.  Very happy with Koetter so far.

      I noticed the Koetter penalty difference. Hopefully they can clean that up.

      The Bucs were the most penalized team in the NFL last year without Koetter, so I doubt he is part of the reason. I think it had more to do with the extra official on the field, and Bell and Edwards apparently not knowing how to properly block.

      Haven’t watched the game on replay yet, but not all penalties tie to coaching.  A lineman can hold because of bad technique, but often times its just that the lineman is getting beat by a better player.  Not sure which category the majority of last night’s penalties fall into, but my perception was mostly lineman outmatched?  Could be wrong
