Why Tony Romo was wrong about the Buccaneers

During the Sunday week 12 game between the Buccaneers and the Chiefs, Tony Romo made some wild claims about the Buccaneers offense and coaching staff in regards to pre snap motion. This video proves that he was incorrect in his assessment. The bigger question is why would he make such claims knowing they were wrong?

    I disagree on the QB making the decision of motion. The hierarchy is clear. If the coach wants motion, he will tell his QB. That´s what BB/McDaniels did, thats what Shanahan or McVay do, as well as Reid or Payton. Arians basically says: Do as you want. And I think that´s wrong. Also the argument that not every QB like motion, even if true, is in the wrong place here as an argument. QBs love what is more successful. And pre-snap motion and shifting has an overall advantage. And I don´t think Brady cares of he has to raise his foot more in a game as long as it´s helping.

    Of course there are also risks. But the benefits outweigh the risk. Otherwise team would not pass over the middle or do other stuff that´s more dangerous.
    I also disagree on the motion count. Yes, technically this is motion (thought next gen stats does not consider that motion, since they only counted 6 or 7 iirc vs the Chiefs). But the whole purpose of motion is only exercised if it really is from one side to the other, or at least towards the center and back. Not that little 2-4yards to the inside. You gain little information while motioning across gives you all the detail you wanna know. If you motion from one side to the other, you get defensive schemes from both side, not just one.

    Right on brother! Way to preach it! I’m so sick of the national media acting like they know everything about our Bucs. WE the fans watch every game they are clueless. I’m thrilled with the team and quite frankly I was just hoping for a winning season with the lack of an off season with all these new players. It’s funny everyone was saying next year is our year and I believe it. Just wait till this team has an entire off-season to plan practice and prepare. So I’m cool with us trying to figure things out this season and totally dominating next year. Doesn’t mean I don’t want to go all the way but I’m trying to put my big boy cap on and be realistic. Love all y’all do keep it coming, Go Bucs!!

    Around the 5min mark in this video Romo does a pretty good job explaining why Brady is struggling a bit in Tampa and when he’s talking about needing more motion I think he’s talking about doing more than just a 3 yard motion from one player. We do motion we just need a bit more and not all motion is called by the quarterback there are designed pre snap motions that the coach can come up with making it a bit easier on Brady while he’s still trying to get comfortable and learning this system.

    Why are you an apologist for the overrated Arians?

    I agree the dropped passes were much more a factor than motion and the fact that our D was not ready for their speed.
