    So Watson just completed his 16th game - basically that wraps up his rookie season. Yeah, I know. It doesn‘t work like that. He had 2 training camps and almost two years with the team and the coaches. But it‘s still interesting to look at the stats for his first 16 games:

    4088 total yards, 36 TDs, 15 INT, 63,6%, 49 sacks, 537 rushing yards, 3 rushing TDs, 10 fumbles (3 lost). Passer rating: 101,7. 9-7 WL (he only played half of the first game, which was basically already lost).

    Impressive. Especially if you count those almost 50 sacks in there as well.

    Very nice after it's all said and done. However now I have to wonder.....will the 2nd year slump be an issue moving forward?

    It only took the team about 15 years to find a QB, but I am glad we finally did. He is going to be a guy that we will have for a lllooonnnggg time. It feels so good.

    Good job to Dw4 for saving Ob job. It irritates me watching O’brien predictable play calling every week while I studied both the Rams and Patriots offense yesterday. What I love about there coaches is the unorthodox approach to the game. For example they do not run the ball up the middle every time on 1st down or 3rd & short. They implement at least 1 trick play during the game. With that being said I would never doubt this team with a healthy Watson but I would like for him to master playcalling recognition like the Bradys, Manning’s and Rodgers because you’re not going to win with conservative playcalling in the playoffs.

    As the rookie grows and fills his trophy case, he will have more and more autonomy and change calls. I feel he will cover up BOB's weaknesses more over time

    Seems Bill calls the game totally different without F5 or Coutee.

    Which seems fair because those two players have skillsets that are hard to replicate.

    Got to use the tools you have. Although in saying that, in the absence of those guys, I'd like to see more of our young TEs who I think have the potential to be great matchup weapons.

    Pretty impressive considering half the time the offense is in turtle mode.

    Hey, 15 years is nothing. Just ask any Bucs fans around here. Almost 40 years and counting.

    Him and Mahomes are going to be the Manning-Brady analogues for the AFC for the next 15 years.

    Not making a 1:1 comparison, but I think they will define the "who's the best" discussion in our conference.

    Well right now Watson is more Manning with Jim Mora.

    Good stuff right here. The youngster is putting in work despite the coaches and offensive lines discrepancies.

    Meh, the Bucs had a couple QBs. They just blew it with them. And they won a SB with the ultimate game manager.

    Game has changed a whole lot since those days that Johnson/Dilfer and defense won superb owls

    Really? Didn't Wilson and Flacco do pretty much that?

    No... Wilson and Flacco had incredible runs in the playoffs. And my point was that when Johnson/Dilfer won, defenses could destroy receivers and QB's. No such thing as defenseless WR's or roughing the passer

    They still rode their defenses to a super bowl trophy. Lynch was key for Seattle and Rice for Baltimore. The QBs were good but not great.
