    Buccaneers Have A Losing Culture Due To Players Like Brent Grimes

    Grimes felt that his $7 million salary wasn’t enough for him to shadow number one receivers. Citing that other corners that shadow make $13-$15 million per season.

    Grimes didn’t want to follow Antonio Brown and other top receivers because he was getting paid less than other cornerbacks, who mind you, are much younger.

    “That just f***ed up my whole vibe for the whole year to be completely honest,” Grimes said.

    The Buccaneers let Grimes play on one side of the field; the coaching staff never made him shadow anyone. They gave in to a 12-year veteran who wasn’t going to be on the team next season anyway.

    Even when Tampa was eliminated from playoff contention, the Bucs continued to trot Grimes out there. A coaching staff with any backbone would have sat him on the bench and allowed a player who wants to prove himself to take the field.

    -----------------------------------

    Brent Grimes didn’t play in the second half against the Bears in Week 4.

    Dirk Koetter told everyone it was to get Ryan Smith some reps.

    Grimes believes it was for a reason far more ridiculous.

    “They said [I was benched because] I was on my phone at halftime, which is true because I’m on my phone [at halftime] every game of my career,” Grimes said.

    his wife is a pain in the ass

    If I was a future employer for Grimes, i'd insist that his wife stay off social media, she can be a major cancer.

    His wife indeed is a major issue.

    But the Bucs have problems all over the place.

    Makes absolutely no sense that head coach Dirk Koetter gets canned but GM Jason Licht gets to stay when he's the one who has publicly made the calls on drafting all of the bums on this team, including Jameis Winston #1 overall and that 2nd rounder on kicker Aguayo.

    Now Licht is telling the next Bucs coach, whoever that may be, that he MUST accept Winston as his QB!

    Say what?!?

    This guy STILL can't accept the fact he has blown pick after pick and can't put his pride aside and move on from Winston and forcing a new head coach to play him!

    Whenever you hear the term "players coach" you know there will be trouble.

    Rex Ryan, Tomlin, Koetter.....don't let the inmates run the asylum, you friggin' dopes!

    Anytime someone's last name is "Grimes" can't really expect things to go smooth....

    Andy Reid is also referred to as a players coach. The problem in this case is Grimes being a selfish pos. Benching Grimes obviously wouldn't have made that defense play any better.

    So my question is this if we paid him more would we have gotten better results? Have a hard time believing hes that dumb if he wants to make more money next year that is determined by play this year. And this statement is taking money out of his pocket

    Dirk Koetter may be going back to Atlanta. The Falcons offered the offensive coordinator position to Koetter, the former Buccaneers head coach and one-time Falcons OC.

    If Koetter and the Falcons finalize the deal, he’ll take over for the vacancy left by the firing of Steve Sarkisian. He was one of three known candidates to interview for the job, along with former Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and experienced coach Mike Mularkey.

    The Falcons stressed consistency this offseason and going back to the future with Koetter should help achieve that goal.

    “We’re not having wholesale changes on how we play in terms of a system,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said last week. “Not only is it important for the players and the staff, but also for Thomas (Dimitroff) and his staff as well in terms of the players that we’re scouting for, to fit the system. I think adaptability is probably the top factor going in.

    The Bucs are focusing on hiring former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians as their new coach and the strong interest is mutual. Negotiations are likely to begin soon.
