It seems like the Buccaneers won’t ever stop being connected to Jimmy Garoppolo. Fortunately, it seems like the team has the right idea.

The Buccaneers and Jimmy Garoppolo is one of the most annoying stories that keeps getting attention from fans due to the quarterback’s relationship with Tom Brady.

Yes, Garoppolo backed Brady up at one point, but that doesn’t mean that he needs to follow the GOAT to every team he goes to.

The past week has been filled with conflicting stories on the topic of the validity of this notion, but Rick Stroud killed the idea by quoting a Bucs coach on Garoppolo.

Jimmy G can’t throw a deep ball. Does this surprise anyone?

It feels like every San Francisco highlight with a deep pass over the past few years has required a receiver to stop or slow down in their route to adjust to an under-thrown ball or run for 50 yards after making a catch on a shallow route.

Garoppolo is a game manager that needs a perfect scheme to win. This scheme necessitates one of the best run games in the league and an offense that never has the quarterback looking deeper than 20-25 yards.

Does that sound anything like Tampa’s current offense? The two couldn’t be more different.

The Bucs want to force the ball deep. Tom Brady is still expected to get the ball down the field over and over again and he doesn’t even have a run game.

The expectations on the quarterback on the Bucs and the quarterback on the 49ers are simply different, and it is good to see a coach from the good guys making it clear that the staff doesn’t see a complete player in Garoppolo, hopefully killing this conjecture forevermore.

Strong arms and deep passes are the name of the game in the modern NFL. The Buccaneers have been ahead of the curve for a while now; they just need to make sure that they stick to this correct understanding of the game.
