    Just because one of the greatest returners in NFL history took one back on us we’re afraid to punt deep? More bad things happen for the return team then the punting team. Live in your hopes, not in your fears.

    Koenen’s following his coach’s instructions. What’s he supposed to do, out kick his punt coverage? With all the issues facing the Bucs (backup Qb, piss poor running game, injured WR/TE who were supposed to be key players, swiss cheese defensive backfield/worthless safeties) we focus on the punter.

        “We” being the collective fanbase. Sorry you took it as criticism of your writing. Visit fan message boards and joe buc fans are focusing on kicking when we have so many other issues on the team….

    PR: Make up your minds – Is he doing what he is supposed to do or is it really a problem?

    He used to have just as good hang time, but 5 yards deeper; I would remind him.

    Why is it that no other punter seems to have these issues…no other punter seems to be worried about out kicking his coverage, or forcing fair catches at the expense of yards, or not kicking it too far, or too high, or too whatever….I think this guy thinks too much…just nail the ball as far as you can and aim for the sideline…problem solved.

    It’s too early to draw firm conclusions, but too many roads – ignoring obvious needs on draft day, emphasizing potential (ie,hope) vs proven production in free agency, plus questionable game plans, game day personnel decisions (McCown being most obvious but not the only one), play calling and clock management – are leading back to suggest problems with our coaching staff and front office. Hopefully these are typical first year of a turnaround blues, but candidly it doesn’t feel like it to me.

    Confusing and contradicting article. Not sure after reading if he is the problem or not. One thing for sure punter is least of our problems, but paying a kicker that much is stupid and I thought so before he even kicked his first kick for us. Special teams took a big step backwards this year and have been just dreadful. Not sure who is to blame, but ultimately Lovie is. Cut him and free some money and get and average punter then spend on some players or a coach that can actually cover and tackle on special teams. Lol

    I knew he was following direction to kick the ball high and short out of fear of run backs. I don’t like the strategy.

    Perhaps the coach knows the coverage team is flawed and he is trying to hide that defect to Koenen’s chagrin?

      I believe you nailed it. This team has suspect PR coverage.
