      https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2014/06/05/qbs-in-focus-pressure-and-the-blitz/Damn, McCown was very good when under pressure. Makes me feel a little better about the line not being exactly the best right now.

      Biggest question mark I have on McCown is whether he can do it against the better defenses he’ll be facing this year.

      WEAKNESSES His average foot quickness will cause him issues trying to avoid defenders in a collapsing pocket. Tends to retreat instead of stepping up to deliver in the face of pressure — though his arm gives him a chance to get the ball out of bounds or find an open target while still backpedalling. And while he has the arm and tight spiral to threaten defenses with the deep ball, his inconsistent accuracy and reading of coverages keep him from being efficient in the vertical game.

      What I took from that list is the success which both Mccown and Nick Foles had when facing various types of pressure.  The similarity between the two is that they both played in two of the most modern, QB friendly offenses currently in the NFL.  If Tedford can provide a similar situation, as his college resume suggests he might, then the Bucs offense has a chance to be really good even with the expected sub-par play along the offensive line.  The key to a “QB friendly” system is to provide the QB with clear and recognizable options, particularly against pressure and/or the blitz.  For far too long the Bucs have talked about running the ball and throwing it deep, often leaving our QBs with too few options to sustain drives.  With the emphasis on the screen game and other quick passing we have heard about during OTAs it seems that we may finally be putting our QBs into favorable situations.

        With a less than stellar O’line, getting the ball out quick is the most consistent way to keep the chains moving. Need good receivers to pull it off, and we now at least have the potential, even this season…

      Tedford calls it "having all the answers for the test".  It will be interesting to see how Tedford schemes and play calls against pressure/blitzes.
