Bowles Will Be “Chill” But “Aggressive” As Bucs Head Coach

SR’s Fab 5 is a group of reporting and evaluation on the Bucs from yours really, Pewter Report’s Scott Reynolds. Listed below are 4 issues that caught my consideration this week, plus some random tidbits in my Buc Pictures part on the finish. Take pleasure in!

FAB 1. Bowles Will Be “Chill” However “Aggressive” As Bucs Head Coach

For the primary time since 2019, I walked into the AdventHealth Coaching Middle on Thursday for Todd Bowles’ press convention as the brand new Bucs head coach. COVID-19 has saved the media out of the group’s facility for the previous two years.

I like the Bowles rent, by the way in which. I’ve been an enormous fan of his aggressive strategy and the way in which he coaches the protection.

However I actually wished to seek out out who the Bucs had been getting as their subsequent head coach. In some methods, Bowles is man of thriller in pewter and pink.

When the media has gotten to interview Bowles throughout his weekly press conferences in-season, which usually final not more than 10 minutes – and oftentimes on Zoom – we’ve seen a stoic, matter-of-fact and routinely bland defensive coordinator on the podium.

I bear in mind speaking to a number of Bucs gamers about Bowles within the open locker room media periods in the course of the 2019 season and they’d inform me how humorous and sarcastic Bowles could be in group conferences. And the way a lot they love and respect the man.

We’ve all seen that love and respect on the sphere within the type of his gamers producing the league’s top-ranked run protection. And we’ve seen the blitz-heavy Bucs being close to the highest of the NFL in sacks below Bowles.

However Bowles’ humor and the sarcasm – the place was that?

Bowles lastly confirmed everybody that facet of him on Thursday as he was introduced as Bruce Arians’ successor. After Jason Licht paid tribute to Arians, calling him the “coolest head coach” within the league, Bowles talked about his personal relationship with the Bucs normal supervisor.

And the way he wasn’t fairly as cool.

“I is probably not the best man he’ll ever meet, however I’m fairly rattling chill myself (laughs),” Bowles stated with an enormous smile. “However I’ll take that. Bruce will at all times be the best. I’ll go over to the chilliness class and attempt to begin one thing there.”

Bucs quarterback Tom Brady was in attendance for Bowles’ introductory press convention. When speaking about having Brady for an additional 12 months in Tampa Bay, which can help Bowles’ as a first-year head coach tremendously, he once more turned to some deadpan humor and sarcasm.

“It’s at all times nice to have him below middle,” Bowles stated. “Lastly I get to play with him as an alternative of in opposition to him with out him beating my head in. We’ll have some spirited practices. We had an incredible dialog. I believe the world of the man. I believe we’re extra alike than he might ever know. Despite the fact that it doesn’t appear to be it on the floor.

“He’s most likely a bit extra chill than I’m. So I’ll most likely should discover a new factor apart from that, as a result of Bruce took “cool” and Tom took “chill.” I’ve to seek out my area of interest on this complete factor with out being a jerk about it.”

Now we see what the Bucs gamers have seen. Bowles is actually charismatic in his personal distinctive manner.

He’s type of like Mike Evans, a 6-foot-5, long-legged receiver who doesn’t appear to be he’s operating quick – till he blows by you. Evans’ pace sneaks up on you. Simply ask Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who acquired smoked by Evans for a 55-yard landing in final 12 months’s playoff recreation.

Bowles’ humor sneaks up on you want that, too.

Licht, who has recognized Bowles because the two labored collectively in Arizona in 2013, was requested what he was stunned to find out about him over time.

“He’s acquired a bit little bit of a quiet demeanor at occasions, however simply how large of a shit-talker he’s,” Licht stated. “And the way enjoyable he might be, and he’s in , productive manner. He’s an outstanding individual and I might go on and on about what an incredible coach he’s. And he’s very conscious and he’s most likely one of many smartest folks throughout all occupations that I’ve ever met.”

Chill, good, humorous, shit-talker – I prefer it.

However extra importantly, his gamers adore it.

They love Bowles.

“He places his gamers in the fitting place to win, believes in them and believes of their talents,” stated Bucs cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting. “He doesn’t go off script and he sticks to it and sticks with you thru thick and skinny. I like enjoying for Coach Bowles.”

Professional Bowl nostril sort out Vita Vea agrees.

“I like Todd Bowles,” Vea stated. “He’s an incredible man and an incredible coach. A number of our success is thru him. We get all of the limelight, however he’s actually the person with the plan. He sees all people and is aware of all of our abilities.”

Exterior linebacker Shaq Barrett has flourished below Bowles, incomes two Professional Bowl berths in three years and main the league in sacks in 2019.

“Coach Bowles – he is aware of what he’s doing,” Barrett stated. “He’s most positively a defensive guru and I recognize him. He’s at all times getting us on the identical web page – the fitting web page – telling us what must be mounted and fixing it. He’s an incredible defensive thoughts.”

Bucs security Mike Edwards echoes that sentiment.

“I don’t understand how he does it,” Edwards stated. “He’s only a mastermind.”

As a defensive-minded man myself, I like the truth that Tampa Bay could have one other defensive-minded head coach main the way in which.

After all the final one who had success was Tony Dungy, and that was a long time in the past again in 1996-2001. The final three defensive head coaches – Raheem Morris, Greg Schiano and Lovie Smith – all flopped in Tampa Bay.

It is going to be completely different with Bowles. He has already had success with the Bucs, serving to the group win Tremendous Bowl LV with a superb recreation plan. Tampa Bay held Kansas Metropolis’s explosive offense out of the top zone in a 31-9 triumph at Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs fan base and group has at all times valued good protection, and Bowles grew to become the league’s highest-paid defensive coordinator after the Tremendous Bowl. As a lot because the NFL has change into a points-driven, offensive league, there’s nonetheless nice worth in protection. Anyone has to cease these high-powered offenses from scoring.

Tampa Bay – and Arians – bucked the pattern of going with the younger, offensive-minded head teaching rent. It might have simply been offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich as an alternative.

However Bowles is the fitting selection – the only option. He’ll assist carry the flag for defensive-minded head coaches within the NFL, which I like.

“I believe there’s this factor going round that defensive coaches can’t be head coaches since you don’t see them,” Bowles stated. “And I believe it’s fairly the opposite. Clearly, [Bill] Belichick is an impressive head coach and we now have just a few on this league which can be excellent head coaches. You look again on the Tremendous Bowls with Dungy and Belichick and [Mike] Tomlin and [Bill] Parcells – you possibly can return years and years and discover success with defensive coaches successful Tremendous Bowls and being excellent coaches.

“It’s a part within the NFL and other people get caught up within the second. There are good soccer coaches on either side of the ball. And I believe we have to make that a bit extra honest and a bit extra even. The one manner you are able to do that’s to attempt to cease folks. That’s what we’re going to attempt to do.”

Arians and the Bucs picked Bowles to proceed the successful tradition that was began right here in 2019 and led to a Tremendous Bowl win the next season. There shall be some refined modifications below Bowles, however the mindset of the Bucs’ program gained’t change.

“I believe it is going to be aggressive,” Arians stated of the Bucs below Bowles’ management. “It is going to be very aggressive.”

FAB 2. The Adjustments Bowles Will Make With The Bucs

There shall be some refined modifications with Todd Bowles on the helm in Tampa Bay. He’ll nonetheless be calling the defensive performs, though he’ll have two co-defensive coordinators. Defensive position coach Kacy Rodgers will deal with the blitzes. Inside linebackers coach Larry Foote will deal with the coverages.

“Once I’m on the offensive facet of the ball at apply we undergo phases of run intervals and cross intervals,” Bowles stated. “Generally they’re on the similar time. Kacy excels within the entrance seven and Larry excels within the again seven. Once I’m over there, to be co-DCs, they’ll be dealing with the identical conditions, however one is within the run recreation and one is within the cross recreation, so I do know I’ve it coated over there.

Todd Bowles and DL coach Kacy Rodgers

“I believe our DB coaches do an impressive job. Coach [Nick] Rapone taught me all the things I knew, and Coach [Kevin] Ross I performed with. Having that dynamic with each guys over there that I belief – together with the 2 DB coaches – I believe it helps an incredible deal in apply once I’m on the opposite facet of the ball. I’m going to put in within the spring, as a result of we now have new issues even they don’t find out about but. And I’ll name it on recreation day. However I believe from the day-to-day operations and understanding the gamers and going into coaching camp, they’ll be in entrance of the room much more.”

Bowles’ message shall be delivered another way than Arians. There could be much less cussing and extra sarcasm.

“It’s like each different coach, You coach onerous, you perceive gamers and also you attempt to put them in the very best place to play soccer. Once I say my manner, the supply could come out completely different. It could be the identical factor that Bruce is saying. He could use a bunch of profanity. I could use some sarcasm – or vice versa.

“He could also be, ‘Get your ass over right here.’ And I’m like, ‘Your legs are over right here, the place’s your ass at?’ (laughs) It’s simply semantics we’re speaking right here. I’m not attempting to alter this system, however you’ve acquired to be your self. Should you attempt to imitate someone else it doesn’t go properly. My manner works for me, and it really works on protection. The offensive guys will get to know me and we’ll go from there.”

Arians was an offensive-minded head coach and would collaborate with offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and quarterback Tom Brady. When it got here to the defensive facet of the ball, he was hands-off and let Bowles run the present.

Tampa Bay’s new head coach will stray from that strategy and stated he expects to have some enter within the Bucs offense.

“It’s early on that, however I’m the top coach – I get to do no matter I would like,” Bowles laughed. “I’m not going to go in there and name performs. I perceive that. And I don’t intend to or act like I’m going to. I’ll have enter in how defenses are attempting to assault them. I’ll have enter on sure conditions going into the half or two-minute, or third-and-1s. Or going for it or not going for it and people varieties of issues. That’s my job. I’ve the liberty to do this. On the similar time, I perceive and respect Byron and Tom an incredible deal.”

Defensive-minded coaches have a look at performs from a very completely different perspective. When offensive coordinators draw up performs they’re designed to both get first downs or touchdowns. Defensive coordinators see performs in a different way.

Again once I was a defensive coordinator in Pop Warner soccer I advised my head coach and offensive coordinator to not waste their time e-mailing me any new offensive performs until they wished me to indicate them how I’d cease it. That’s simply how defensive minds work.

Bruce Arians and head coach Todd Bowles

That’s the worth Bowles can usher in an offensive assembly room with Leftwich and Brady. He can present them any potential weaknesses in safety from a defensive standpoint, or the place routes must be adjusted to keep away from hassle in protection and decide up further yardage.

Apart from that, there gained’t be an excessive amount of completely different with Bowles’ strategy, nor does there should be. The Bucs return a ton of expertise, together with Brady, from a group that went 13-4 final 12 months and gained the NFC South for the primary time since 2007.

“Schematically, not a lot change,” Arians stated. “There shall be completely different messages. I believe loads of occasions there must be new messages and he delivers it in such an effective way.”

Bowles gained’t attempt to be Arians. That’s unimaginable. There’s just one B.A.

However being Todd Bowles shall be adequate. He discovered so much from his first teaching stint with the Jets. And he’s discovered so much during the last three years with Arians in Tampa Bay.

Bowles is able to lead the Buccaneers.

“The one factor I do know learn how to do is coach soccer gamers,” Bowles stated. “No matter whether or not you might be an All-Professional or whether or not you’re a rookie, all of your gamers wish to do is be coached and assist them get higher. I can assist folks get higher. I’m going to make use of that strategy via my manner of understanding our group higher and make them higher gamers transferring ahead. We’ll do a few various things. There are loads of other ways to win on this league. Everyone has a distinct manner and there are some profitable coaches doing it.

“I’ve to grasp what I discovered and never attempt to be Bruce, and never attempt to be Parcells and never attempt to be Joe Gibbs. Perceive what I discovered from them, put my spin on it and transfer ahead that manner. I believe if I placed on a Kangol hat, grew my goatee, you guys would have a look at me like I’m loopy. ‘Have a look at this clown, he’s mini-Bruce.’ I can’t do this. I’m not going to do this. And I’m not going to strive. I’m not defending myself. I simply know that you need to be you on this league.”

FAB 3. The Good Information And The Dangerous Information For Bowles

The final time Todd Bowles was a head coach he inherited a 4-12 Jets group in 2015 and guided New York to a 10-6 document. With Ryan Fitzpatrick on the helm, the Jets had been a recreation away from the playoffs. That was nearly as good because it acquired for Bowles, who went 24-40 in 4 years with Gang Inexperienced.

After a pair of 5-11 seasons, Bowles was fired after the Jets went 4-12 in 2018. He reunited with Bruce Arians in Tampa Bay because the Bucs defensive coordinator the following 12 months.

What did Bowles in with the Jets? The identical factor that’s the demise for loads of different first-time head coaches: a scarcity of expertise.

That gained’t be the case in Tampa Bay, and that’s the excellent news for Bowles. With three years in pink and pewter with gamers he helped purchase, a system he’s already applied and had success with, and a training workers he is aware of and trusts that’s already assembled, Bowles is basically three years forward of the place he was because the Jets head coach in 2015 from the primary minute he’s the top coach of the Buccaneers.

Oh, and Bowles has Tom Brady again for an additional 12 months.

“Good gamers make good coaches, so that you at all times wish to have good gamers,” Bowles stated. “I’m not going to apologize for inheriting a proficient group. I’ve had much less success with groups. So I’ll by no means apologize for that. By no means in a lifetime.”

Bucs normal supervisor Jason Licht believes Bowles shall be significantly better with this second alternative after the teachings he discovered in New York.

“A number of occasions the document of the top coach might be misrepresented by what he had and the folks that he had round him and the gamers and all these issues,” Licht stated. “It’s a really robust market there, clearly, to work in. A number of head coaches that go on to get second alternatives have loads of success due to the issues that they’ve discovered.”

Marv Levy, Invoice Belichick, Pete Carroll and Mike Shanahan are simply a few of the coaches that began off with shedding data throughout their first stint as NFL head coaches, solely to make it to a number of Tremendous Bowls with their second alternatives.

Bowles inherits a Bucs group that gained a Tremendous Bowl in 2020 and gained a franchise-record 13 video games within the 2021 common season. Tampa Bay returns six Professional Bowlers, together with three on protection in inside linebacker Devin White, nostril sort out Vita Vea and security Antoine Winfield, Jr.

It’s a state of affairs so splendid that it prompted Arians to instantly step down in late March and provides Bowles the very best probability for fulfillment with the continuity on the roster and the teaching workers.

“It needs to be big,” Arians stated. “This can be a excellent soccer group. He is aware of it and all people is aware of one another. He’ll have his tweaks to the routines and so they’ll be glorious. That’s why I’m doing this.”

Former Bucs head coach Jon Gruden and owner Malcom Glazer

Jon Gruden inherited a Tremendous Bowl-ready protection, mounted the Bucs offense and went 12-4 in his first 12 months. The Bucs gained their first Tremendous Bowl in Gruden’s first season in Tampa Bay in 2002.

Different Bucs head coaches had been far much less lucky of their first season. Raheem Morris went 3-13 in 2009. Greg Schiano posted a 7-9 document in 2012. Lovie Smith had an atrociously embarrassing 2-14 document in 2014. Dirk Koetter went 9-7 in 2016, however did not make the playoffs.

Even Arians went 7-9 as a first-year coach in Tampa Bay. Gruden is the one Bucs head coach to make the playoffs in his first season with the group.

Bowles might be subsequent.

Actually, Bowles ought to be subsequent.

That’s the place the excellent news most likely ends.

The unhealthy information is that the Bucs gained 13 video games final 12 months as a result of of Brady. When Brady leaves, which very properly might be after this season, the Bucs would possibly nonetheless be excellent. However they’re not going to be nice with out a nice quarterback.

But an excellent Bowles-led Bucs group might nonetheless win the division in 2023 and make the playoffs.

Common supervisor Jason Licht and his workers have finished an incredible job of stockpiling expertise on either side of the ball. However whoever replaces Brady will in the end decide how far the Bucs go. This has change into a passing league. Quarterbacks rule within the NFL.

The unhealthy information for the Bucs would possibly very properly be the extent of success Bowles achieves this season. As Gruden discovered, successful the Tremendous Bowl in his first season solely buys a lot job safety. His honeymoon was over rapidly when the Bucs went 7-9 in 2003 and he was at odds with each normal supervisor Wealthy McKay and vast receiver Keyshawn Johnson.

After being on the new seat after an injury-riddled 5-11 season in 2004, Gruden rebounded the following 12 months and gained the NFC South, going 11-5. However he was fired three years later after a tenure that lasted six seasons.

There’s a powerful probability that the upcoming 2022 season goes to be nearly as good because it’s going to be for Bowles in Tampa Bay. Whether or not the Bucs win 11, 12, 13 or 14 video games, and whether or not they simply make the playoffs or go to the Tremendous Bowl, surpassing what the Bucs do that 12 months with out Brady shall be difficult.

After all Licht and Bowles shall be up for the problem. I don’t doubt they gained’t.

The Glazers have a observe document of a fast set off finger in the case of teaching hires. Morris acquired three years. Schiano and Smith acquired two. Koetter acquired three.

However the Glazers have proven loads of persistence with Licht, who’s now on to his fourth head coach. And that persistence was rewarded with Arians’ arrival in 2019, and Brady and a Tremendous Bowl victory the following 12 months. They’ll give Bowles loads of time, particularly if he begins sturdy out of the gate, as anticipated.

However identical to a brand new recording artist who has an enormous, No. 1 hit on the high of the charts with their first single, following up that success is usually a burden. Particularly when the second single or the second album is nice (or unhealthy), however not nice.

Bear in mind, Tony Dungy acquired fired after a 9-7 season in 2001 and making the playoffs for a 3rd straight season. Gruden additionally acquired fired after going 9-7 in 2008 and successful three division titles in six seasons.

I’m actually not attempting to finish Bowles’ head teaching profession earlier than it begins, or dampen any enthusiasm. It’s simply going to be attention-grabbing to see how Bowles navigates 12 months 2 as a head coach in Tampa Bay. 12 months 2 in New York was the place issues started to unravel for him.

However first we have to get via Bowles’ first 12 months. And it needs to be an thrilling one.

FAB 4. Bowles Is Accountable For Dangerous Name vs. Rams – “I Blew It”

It’s loopy to suppose that Todd Bowles’ unhealthy name – an all-out blitz in opposition to Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford in Tampa Bay’s 30-27 playoff loss to Los Angeles – really led to him the Bucs head teaching job. However that’s precisely what occurred.

If Bowles had not known as that ill-timed blitz in opposition to the very best QB within the league in opposition to stress, the Bucs may need stopped the Rams and gained in time beyond regulation. Tampa Bay had crushed Buffalo in time beyond regulation, 33-27, weeks earlier.

Rams WR Cooper Kupp and Bucs S Antoine Winfield, Jr.

As a substitute, the Bucs’ blitz didn’t get there in time, because the gamers weren’t lined up correctly on the Rams’ hurried snap of the ball. With defensive sort out Ndamukong Suh bearing down on him, Stafford launched a 44-yard cross to All-Professional receiver Cooper Kupp to arrange the game-winning area objective for the Rams. Weeks later, Los Angeles would go on to host – and win – Tremendous Bowl LVI.

Had the Bucs crushed the Rams there’s a good probability that they might have crushed the 49ers the following week within the NFC Championship Sport at Raymond James Stadium. A win over San Francisco would have put Tampa Bay within the Tremendous Bowl the place the Bucs probably would have crushed the Bengals, too.

Again-to-back Tremendous Bowl victories would have most likely led to Bruce Arians’ retirement, and maybe Tom Brady’s too. It may need led to offensive coordinator Bryon Leftwich getting a head-coaching job, and maybe extra provides for Bowles, too.

Even when that street led to Bowles being named as Arians’ successor in Tampa Bay anyway, a part of the Bucs workers probably would have acquired provides to go elsewhere after back-to-back Tremendous Bowls. Bowles wouldn’t have had this workers intact, as it’s now, and could be with out Brady.

For the primary time since that notorious play occur, Bowles was requested about it shortly after being named as the brand new Bucs head coach on Thursday.

“We blew it,” Bowles stated. “Anytime a play goes unsuitable, it’s the teaching workers and the gamers. Should you name it proper and so they execute it proper, it’s an incredible play. In the event that they execute it unsuitable, it’s a nasty play. It is best to’ve modified the decision while you execute it unsuitable. It is best to’ve modified the decision while you known as it unsuitable. Once you name it proper…it’s one play. We had performs within the first half that I assumed had been way more necessary of shedding that recreation than the final play. You’re attempting to win the sport. You attempt to sit again there and let Stafford have all that point on this planet in crunch time – are you attempting to win or are you attempting to see if he can get in area objective vary and go?

Todd Bowles and Bruce Arians

“Sean [Murphy-Bunting] had simply fell down the play earlier than and Cooper caught the large achieve and the stress didn’t get there. We had been attempting to win. I’ll by no means apologize for attempting to win. If I did name zone and (Stafford) acquired the play off, you’ll say I ought to’ve blitzed. ‘We blitz on a regular basis, how come we didn’t blitz?’ That’s a part of soccer, that’s teaching. You must be taught to make peace and dwell with that.”

Bowles was fully accountable for that pricey name in opposition to the Rams. As painful as that play was for followers and Tampa Bay gamers to endure, nobody agonized extra or feels worse about that decision than Bowles himself.

“Do you neglect it? By no means in life,” Bowles stated. “I can bear in mind loads of performs – unhealthy performs as a participant and as a coach. I can bear in mind the landing passes I gave up once I performed for Washington. There have been three, and I bear in mind all three of them.

“This play shall be one other a kind of issues, however that can’t cease you from being you. You return to the drafting board and see how one can get higher as a coach, and how one can educate it higher for the gamers. And you progress on. That’s the one manner you possibly can have development. I can’t come within the first day and say, ‘You blew this play from final 12 months!’ That’s unrealistic. We had been attempting to win, identical to all people wished us to win. It didn’t occur.”

Bowles and the Bucs will attempt to get revenge in opposition to the Rams as Tampa Bay will host Los Angeles once more for a 3rd straight 12 months at Ray-Jay in 2022.

FAB 5. SR’s Buc Pictures

• NO WONDER BOWLES STRUGGLED IN NEW YORK: Todd Bowles went 24-40 as the top coach of the New York Jets from 2015-18. And there was an enormous motive why – poor quarterback play.
