32nd ranked special teams is unacceptable.

But I knew that we weren't firing Joe when he got a game ball (after the game where Braman had the blocked punt)

Hopefully Randy Bullock will be ready to go by next year. Shayne is a decent enough FG kicker, but I'm tired of seeing his short kickoffs...how did that guy even survive in the league when it was from the 30?

And I'm not sold on Donnie Jones, either.

Seeing Trindon and Jacoby do so well in their new systems shows us that it wasn't their fault; it was ours. When was the last time we ever had a decent KR/PR? Jerome Mathis? Love Manning as a S, but he ain't fast enough to be a KR.

When I saw how well our special teams performed against the Patriots, I had a gut feeling that Joe was here to stay. That's all it takes to redeem yourself with Bob McNair. Just look at how long he stuck with David Carr.

Do you think the game has passed Joe Marciano by?

Is that why our special teams played better in both the WC & Div play-off games? Or did they approach special teams differently than they had all year long? & If they approached special teams differently in the play-offs, who's decision was it to handle special teams the way we did during the season?

Let's just imagine that Kubiak & Wade hamstrung Coach Joe all year long, "Nope, Harris & Posey aren't going to be active today, you can't have Manning, Graham, Tate, Nading, McCain, or Demps."

Remember Jacoby was a leading returner with us before we let him go, McMannis was our best gunner before we let him go, & I'm sure it wasn't Marciano's idea to cut Holiday for the roster spot, even though we had a WR & a CB that couldn't make the active roster.

Do you think Marciano should be fired because Kubiak is a dumbass?

Wannstedt spent the past two seasons with the Buffalo Bills, most recently serving as the Bills defensive coordinator. He was fired along with Chan Gailey and the rest of his staff on New Years Eve.

The fact that Wannstedt has wound up in Tampa should really be surprising to no one. Both Greg Schiano and Wannstedt spent time together in Chicago, with Wannstedt serving as Schiano’s boss as the head coach of he Bears. But back then Schiano was just the learner while now he is the master.

Schiano and Wannstedt bumped into each other on plenty of occasions while they were both in the Big East back in their college coaching days. But in becoming the Buccaneers special teams coach, Wannstedt is doing so for the first time in his NFL coaching career.

The move to hire Wanndstedt doesn’t hurt at all, although some may take issue with his lack of coaching success in the recent past. But Greg Schiano is doing the same exact thing he did last year when he was assembling a brilliant staff — he’s seeking out guys that know what they’re doing and surrounding himself with them.
First time head coach hiring a "friend" to be a first time ST coach... I'm not liking the way that sounds already. "Lack of coaching success in recent past" ....

Yeah, we should have jumped all over that.

He also dropped a punt. I am happy he's gone. He is way to big of a risk.

Good to see Jacoby playing a big role on a Super Bowl team, but he had to leave to Houston. Change of scenery is just what he needed.

Jacoby with the longest Kick Return in NFL history, on the biggest stage. Along with another big TD.

That I agree with 100%. The thing is Manning looks like a very good option for kick returns, and punt returns. I think we should draft a wide receiver in the late rounds like we did with Holliday.

It's not the special teams coach. It's the head coach and his upset stomach face. It's not just the returners that choke in big spots and make bonehead plays. It's from all phases.

Jones as a Texan was a ticking time bomb. Two years ago he cost us the playoff game with 2 muffed returns. That's just my opinion.
