Seems the only move they could make after passing on players who can actually play as someone mentioned a few posts back.

Don't see how anyone can "coach up" the obvious lack of talent at the back end of the D.

The timing of this move couldn't have been worse. Should have happened 2 weeks ago....or 6 months ago. Right now it looks like desperation

^^ This. It should have been done right after the end of last season to give the new DC time to install a new system and get the players accustomed to it. Now it's like sticking the finger in the proverbial dike. Licht and Koetter will be fired in the offseason and a new 5 year plan will be started.

Same as it ever was.

For me, it's more about the total lack of a pass rush or consistently stopping the run. The play calling consistently left the players out of position. On the backend you basically have had a bunch of really young guys or rookies starting (Davis, Whitehead, Johnson, Evans) and Grimes. So, it seems there should be a lot of coaching up options there... but the vet laden D line (except for VV, who was also invisible Sunday) we're really stuck there with what we have.

Grimes looks done. Ryan Smith is terrible. Just donít see these two improving.

McCoy has been the biggest disappointment on the line.

Because Mike Smith brought Koetter into the NFL and we already know loyalty > performance with the Bucs.

Raider fans ready to fire Gruden already. That's one thing I'm glad the Bucs didn't do last year. Even though Koetter is in over his head, Gruden was out of the NFL for 10 years and it shows, but he conned the Raiders into a huge money and years commitment.
