Training camp is just four days away for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and fans know that they can expect a different offensive style from new offensive coordinator, Jeff Tedford.
But how different, exactly?
According to Vincent Jackson, it will be much faster.
“It’s a faster paced offense that’s going to put a lot of pressure on the defense. We’re going to be very diverse and we want to be able to control the clock and dictate the pace that we want top play at.”
That’s a breath of fresh air, after last year’s offense faltered all the way to a ranking of dead last among all NFL teams. The year before, however, the Buccaneers had the most high-flying offense in franchise history. They want to get back to that style, with more reliability from the quarterback position.
Jackson believes that the new coaching staff, as a whole, has the team going in the right direction, and that we will see the results on Sundays in 2014.
“Obviously we have a new staff, Lovie has been great. The amount of information we have been able to take in from the staff is really light years ahead of where we’ve been in the past.”
With Josh McCown at the helm, a healthy Doug Martin, and rookie weapon Mike Evans lining up opposite Jackson, it seems like all systems are a go for the Bucs’ offense to surprise defenses this season.
