I’m OK with Trestman, Loettner or Roman. It comes down to their vision and that vision fitting with Lovie’s. It seem all three could work with Winston or Mariota so let’s move on. After a trip to a cardiologist of course.

Assuming for a moment that the Bucs are going to draft Winston or Mariota, does it make more sense to decide on the QB, then bring in an OC that is best suited for the QB’s strengths? Or to decide on an OC, then bring in the QB that best fits the schemes the OC runs? Or doesn’t it really make any difference?

A quarterback is more important You know who Joe Montana’s offensive guy was? Sam Wyche. Charlie Weis was Brady’s. In other words, the coordinator adapts, like all good coaches do. There has never been an average quarterback made great by coaching. So the Bucs have to figure out which way they’re leaning and get the best guy to coach them.
