  1. I just found it inherently interesting that all these guys were together on the Hofstra staff and no one has even mentioned the Joe Gardi connection. I want Koetter to succeed and Atlanta to get back to the Superbowl. That said.....this info needs to be out there and it's a situation that bears monitoring. It's Quinn's Ship for sure. All that is left is to Rise Up and go get that Lombardi!
  2. I love the Koetter and Mularkey Hires. I also hope the run game improves but I am still scratching my head why we retained both line coaches.
  3. On a side note: Quinn was the Hofstra DC in 2000. Does anyone remember who beat Hofstra down 48-20 on their way to the I AA Championship that year? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_NCAA_Division_I-AA_football_season
  4. OK....we have had a week to think and analize the presser and I originally came to the conclusion that the Koetter and Mularkey Addition has the potential to be very good but the other moves left me greatly disturbed. The heirarchy of offensive coaches is a real mess at this point. Why do I say this? Get ready to be blown away: First.....the Obvious......Koetter is the coordinator but Raheem is the Passing Game Coordinator, Wide Recievers Coach, and GULP!.......Assistant Head Coach! Who reports to who? Good Question. Lets look at the other staff moves before coming back to that question. Bernie Parmalee, who I thought was OK as RB Coach got moved to Assistant Special Teams Coach...WHAT? WHY? Any explanation for this? That make THREE Special Teams Coaches. Didn't understand this until looking at his replacement. With Parmalee Out, Dave Brock will take over as RBs coach. Who? Wasn't he the WR Coach helping Raheem Morris contend for the league lead in drops last year? Hmmmm. From the Falcons Website: Dave Brock is entering his second season with the Falcons – first as the wide receivers coach. In his first year in Atlanta, Brock assisted Raheem Morris with the wide receivers. Their receiving group pulled in 214 receptions for 2,848 yards and 13 touchdowns. Brock joined the Falcons after a four-year stint as the head coach for the University of Delaware. Before joining the Blue Hens, he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Rutgers. Brock has been a collegiate coach for 29 years, with stops at Kansas State (2007-08), North Carolina (2005-06), Temple (2002-04), Hofstra (1995-02), Salisbury (1988-90, 1994), and West Connecticut State (1991-93). He is a native of Moorestown, N.J. Why did I bold Hofstra? Wait for it. Quinn is a Jersey Boy (from Morristown). So is Raheem. (from Irvington) Brock (from Moorestown) makes three. Bernie gets moved to Assistant Special Teams Coach while Quinn promotes his boy. Consider this also from the Falcons Website: Morris began his collegiate coaching career an assistant coach at Hofstra in 1998, where he was responsible for coaching the offensive scout team,(Now we know why Morris was moved to the offensive side of the ball) developing scouting reports, and video breakdown. He moved on to Cornell University as defensive backs coach and special teams assistant for the 1999 season. Morris served as defensive backs coach at Hofstra from 2000 to 2001 before joining the Buccaneers. Was Brock was the Head Coach at Hofstra while Raheem Morris' was on staff? Nope Brock was an assistant at the I-AA School. Joe Gardi was the Head Coach at Hofstra while Brock was an assistant along with Raheem. More on why this is important later. So we have Quinn, Morris, and Brock...All Jersey Boys. Enter our Newly Promoted Game Management Coach Kyle Flood. From the Falcons Website: Before being named head coach, he spent seven years on the Scarlet Knights staff, seeing time as the offensive line coach since joining the program in 2005, and was eventually promoted to assistant head coach in 2008. In 2007, Flood oversaw the run game, as the running game coordinator and from 2009-10 he was the co-offensive coordinator. Before coaching at Rutgers, he spent three years at the University of Delaware where he was the assistant head coach and offensive line coach and was a part of the 2003 National Championship team. Flood was the offensive line coach at Hofstra University from 1997-01. Here is Quinn puting another of his boys in charge of game management. I was hoping Koetter would help in that area. Why do I say Brock is one of his boys? Lets dive deeper on Dan Quinn. From his profile on the Falcons Website: Quinn got his start coaching the defensive line at William and Mary in 1994, followed by a season at Virginia Military Institute. He held the same position with Hofstra for four seasons before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000. Let me get to the point. Dan Quinn, Raheem Morris, Dave Brock, and now Kyle Flood were ALL on Joe Gardi's staff at Hofstra. Hofstra was not Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, or USC. It was a I-AA School. All four men are part of the Joe Gardi Coaching Tree https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Gardi Dirk Koetter was just hired to take over the Falcons Offense. His position coaches are almost all Quinn loyalists. It appears Brock got a promotion at Parmalee's expense. I truly hope Quinn is not handicapping his shiny new coordinator by strategically putting his boys in key positions. Koetter will have to contend with a subbordinate coaching staff entirely not of his choosing almost all with direct loyalties to Quinn. I am amazed that Chris Morgan and Bryant Young kept their jobs after the performance of our lines last year with no pass rush and no protection but the Brotherhood appears to be stronger than the desire to win as Morgan was with Quinn in Seattle and Bryant Young was with Quinn at both Florida and San Francisco, I was no fan of Sark and agree with his dismissal but everyone with ties to Quinn previously seem to have gotten a pass or a promotion. In the case of Brock, I have absolutely no idea what qualified such a promotion when I thought Parmalee did an adequate job while our WR play was inconsistant. Must be that I-AA Hofstra connection. Now I know what Quinn meant in the press conference when he said he would welcome Koetter and Mularkey to the Brotherhood. I hope the welcome was sincere. More than sincere, I hope Koetter and Mularkey are given the control they need to effectively do the job they were hired to do. I hope that Koetter and Mularkey are immensely successful in 2019 but it does appear that Quinn may have stacked the deck with his own Jokers!
  5. All I know is thank God that dude is outa here! 68 posted about Grimes salary versus his replacements and how we would have been better off with Grime Time........this should reinforce the fact that that dude is a serious cancer to any team but Team Miko!
  6. Four-time Pro Bowl corner has bizarre explanation for his ugly season with the Buccaneers Brent Grimes was apparently offended after the Buccaneers gave him a tough defensive assignment in Week 3 by John Breech When Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes officially becomes a free agent in March, don't look for him to be making a return to Tampa Bay, and that's because he apparently isn't a very big fan of the team. During an interview this week, Grimes had multiple complaints to make about the Bucs, and it seems his biggest complaint was that the team asked him to shadow Antonio Brown in Week 3. Apparently, Grimes, who made $7 million in base salary in 2018, felt the Buccaneers weren't paying him enough to justify a tough defensive assignment like that. "I just couldn't agree with it," Grimes told his wife Miko on her #IHeartMikoPodcast, via ESPN.com. "It's just disrespectful. People who follow receivers all the time, unless they're on a rookie contract or trying to get paid, are usually making $13-15 million a year." According to Grimes, he was so upset by the Buccaneers' request that it ruined his mindset for the season and caused him to have a bad year. "That's not right. It's disrespectful," Grimes said. "It just f---ed up my whole vibe for the whole year, to be completely honest. It's just disrespectful. I just felt disrespected." To sum this up: The Buccaneers asked Grimes to do his job and then he got offended because he didn't feel they were paying him enough to do what they asked him to do. To add to the drama, Grimes was benched during the second half of Tampa Bay's 48-10 loss to the Bears in Week 4, which was just one week after the Brown incident. Grimes, who just finished his third seasons with the Buccaneers, also said that the coaching staff took his spirit away. "It was gone. The whole year," Grimes said. "From training camp -- it was gone." According to Miko, her husband was so upset with the Bucs that he thought about skipping Tampa Bay's Week 17 game against the Falcons. "Before that week, you wanted to pull an Antonio Brown," Miko Grimes said. "You told the coaches that you were not playing Sunday. You [were] like, 'F--- this, I'm not playing. I'm sick of y'all. You benched me twice for some dumb s---.'" With free agency right around the corner, this podcast probably wasn't the best way for Grimes to sell himself to other teams.
  7. Carrot Top! Ok thats who that guy is......I thought it was Agent Smith in Drag!
  8. Koetter would be a welcome sight in Atlanta for sure......but it needs to happen quick so he can bring his staff with him......If Monken gets a head job, he might try to pull from the same group of assistants.
  9. Nope.....Joe Thomas and Alex Mack were developed under his watchful eye and tutelage.....thats the story here amigo.
  10. Never gonna hate you for that......It was Mularkey who developed Matt Ryan when he came into the league and Matty turned out fine.
  11. Familiarity with Koetter should win the day for Dirk!
  12. Koetter had a TOP FIVE Offense in Tampa and got better with age. Koetter also would bring a line Coach who produces ProBowl Offensive Line Play. For me.....it's Koetter. He is the only choice and if we arelucky enough to pull Monken too.....offensive problems will be instantly reconciled.
  13. Add in George Warhop and Ben Steele to the equation....who Koetter can bring from Tampa....and its a SLAM DUNK for Koetter!
  14. I am not sure. Koetter can bring Steele and Warhop from Tampa Bay. I like George Warhop as an Offensive Line Coach immensely! George Warhop enters his fifth season with the Buccaneers in 2018, after spending the first two seasons as the offensive line coach before adding the title of run game coordinator in 2016. While this past season saw tackle Donovan Smith miss the first snaps of his career, Smith still managed to start all 16 games for the third consecutive season, joining Paul Gruber as the only players in franchise history to start all 48 games in their first three seasons. Warhop also assisted Ali Marpet as Marpet transitioned from guard to center and new starter J.R. Sweezy slotted in at right guard. The offensive line helped to block for an offense that averaged 363.5 yards per game, the ninth-most in the NFL, and 352 total first downs, the second-most in the league. The 2016 season saw second-year players guard Ali Marpet and tackle Donovan Smith play every single snap for the Buccaneers, while third-year guard Kevin Pamphile started all 14 games he played in, after having four total starts in his first two seasons. Marpet, Pamphile and Smith, along with center Joe Hawley and tackle Demar Dotson, were the main starters for a Buccaneers offense that converted a franchise-record 43.9 percent of third down attempts, the sixth-highest mark in the NFL. Warhop also oversaw the Buccaneers running game, which featured running back Jacquizz Rodgers recording his first two career 100-yard rushing games and a career-best 560 rushing yards on the season. In 2015, Warhop coached an offensive line that featured two rookie starters and only one holdover from the previous year – left guard Logan Mankins, who earned a Pro Bowl berth following the 2015 season. These changes helped the Buccaneers put together one of the top offensive lines in the NFL, with the team blocking for the NFL’s second-leading rushing (running back Doug Martin – 1,402 yards) and 2,162 team rushing yards – the fifth-most rushing yards in the NFL and the second-most in a season in team history. Tampa Bay’s offensive line also allowed only 27 sacks, tied for the fourth-fewest in the league. Warhop joined the Buccaneers after five seasons with Cleveland (2009-13) as the offensive line coach. While with the Browns, Warhop coached tackle Joe Thomas to Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors each season. Warhop also helped center Alex Mack to an all-rookie selection in 2009, while also earning Pro Bowl berths in 2010 and 2013, with a second-team All-Pro selection in 2013. Prior to joining Cleveland, Warhop spent four seasons with San Francisco (2005-08), helping running back Frank Gore record three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, including a franchise-record 1,695 in 2006. Warhop joined the 49ers after two seasons with Dallas (2003-04), where he helped tackle Flozell Adams
  15. Dirk Koetter Must Be the Choice for ONE REASON: George Warhop...Tampa's Offensive Line Coach after a stint in Cleveland where guess what?
