No Coach Speak
Koetter is even a step up for the fans, ladies and gentlemen.
Most coaches around this great league say a lot of what we call “coach speak”. What is coach speak? It’s those same canned statements that guys make, like Bill Belichick for example. They tell you nothing. It’s those “We’ll get ’em next time” type of platitudes. They get coaches through press conferences that most of them hate doing anyway.
Koetter isn’t like that. He says what he is thinking.
Take a look back in January, when we had no idea about the fate of Doug Martin. Koetter pulled no punches, as reported by the Eric Horchy from the Pewter Report:
"“Tell Jason Licht that I want Doug Martin!” Koetter said smiling. “Tell Jason. I’m putting my name on that. I want Doug Martin to be a Buc, so you tell him.” “Who wouldn’t want Doug Martin back?” Koetter added. “He’s a terrific football player, so of course we would like to have him back. Jason’s got control of that and I think he wants Doug back, too, but you guys have to get him on that one. But I’m pretty sure he does.”"
This is just one example. Whenever you get a window into the mind of a coach, the fans get just a bit more insight into their favorite team.
Koetter is just going to make things more interesting. Isn’t that reason enough to say he’s better?
