The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offense has failed to reach its full potential in the last two seasons. When looking at past offenses under Dirk Koetter, the reasoning for it becomes clear.
In the past couple of months, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have subtracted Doug Martin from their backfield and added second-round draft pick Ronald Jones II. The team already has a young franchise quarterback and a talented group of receivers on offense. Now, with a new-look running back group, the offense will look to execute a balanced attack that has been lacking since 2015.
Dirk Koetter, at each of his stops in the NFL, has had the most success when his offenses have featured an efficient ground game. Here, we dive deeper into his coaching career to see just how important the rushing attack is to his offense.
First, we’ll dive into his time in Jacksonville where he had some success and some let downs as the offensive coordinator of the Jaguars.
Then, as he did, we’ll move on to Atlanta and evaluate his time leading one of the offenses we all loved to hate.
By looking back into this head coach’s time as the offensive coordinator for both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons, we can hopefully draw some realistic goals for the 2018 version of Tampa’s offense.
Perhaps it doesn’t all have to ride on Jameis Winston’s shoulders? Let’s take a look.
