The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have only one preseason game left and the team is beginning to look forward to week one against New Orleans. For the most part http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-caleb-benenoch-jersey , the team has performed well during the first three games. Of course, at times the games get sloppy and it is noticeable that the second and third string players are on the field, but we only have to deal with one more of those games. One thing that has been consistent all preseason for Tampa Bay has been the play of their quarterbacks. Head coach Dirk Koetter commented on his quarterbacks today and is extremely pleased with all three guys.“Yeah, very well. I mean, it would be hard not to be the way all three of those guys are really doing a good job,” Koetter said. “I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that Fitz [Ryan Fitzpatrick] now has been through a whole cycle with us, Griff’s [Ryan Griffin] been here for three and of course, Jameis [Winston] Beau Allen Jersey (http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-beau-allen-jersey) ,” Koetter said.“And then [Quarterbacks Coach] Mike Bajakian does a really good job with them in the meeting room so that’s where your OTAs pay off, your classroom stuff pays off and those three guys have done a really nice job of carrying it to the field.”It is well documented that Winston will miss the first three games of the regular season and that Fitzpatrick will be the starting quarterback. However, based on his performance through three games, Buccaneer fans should be much more confident in Fitzpatrick then they were when the suspension was announced. Fitzpatrick has looked in-sync with his receivers and seems to have a very good understanding of the offense. It is his second year with the team so that is to be expected, but he does look much more comfortable this season then he did last. One of the biggest story lines through the first few weeks of the regular season will be if Ryan Fitzpatrick can keep the Buccaneers afloat until Winston returns. If the team can escape that three game stretch with at least one win, Fitz will have done his job.Giving Jameis Winston, Ryan Fitzpatrick Reps Is A Fine Line We knew headed into camp that Ryan Fitzpatrick was going to get his share of first team reps. It’s rather critical given the burden on his shoulders to help the Buccaneers tread water the first three weeks of the season while Jameis Winston is suspended.The question was, how many reps are the right amount for each guy?Head coach Dirk Koetter addressed the concern following practice Wednesday as he’s doing the best he can given the circumstances;Though I tend to disagree slightly with Koetter’s assessment that Fitzpatrick doesn’t need as many reps because of how long he’s been in the league Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey (http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-desean-jackson-jersey) , you have to understand that Winston will be without practice for three weeks. Therefore, he needs as many reps as possible now so that he’s ready to go come week four.As for Fitz, this is a guy that has been a starter but needs as many reps as possible given that he doesn’t usually work with the first team offense. These guys have a limited window in which to build some chemistry and a rapport so that the first three games aren’t a complete bloodbath.It’s not an easy road to navigate, but Koetter is doing the best he, or anyone in his situation, could do.
