answered. "I trust my eyes, OK? I watch the tape. I watch a lot of tape, and I trust what my eyes tell me. So I dont need a freaking piece of paper with a bunch of numbers on there to tell me something my eyes can see."I mean, not to get pi sed off, Frank Clark Jersey
but that whole thing of looking at a piece of paper and telling you how to call a football game is a freaking joke in my opinion. Thats why I watch tape. Half the stuff on that paper, you can sort those stats out any way you want to. But Im sticking by eyes. Its worked OK for me so far.'"But has it? According to ESPN' Shaun Alexander Jersey
s Kevin Seifert, "Koetter's offenses have finished in the bottom half of the NFL in scoring for six of his nine seasons as an OC."Tampa Bay currently ranks 25th in total yards per game and 18th in points per game.
