ONN – Jameis Winston High School Highlights Show Spread Passing Offense Tampa Bay Never Ran

The old saw is that good NFL coaches use the plays their 1st round draft picks excelled in, in high school and college, to get the best out of them. Well, one look at the video above will tell you the Tampa Bay Buccaneers never bothered to really study the offense Jameis Winston ran at Hueytown High School, in the Birmingham, Alabama suburb of Hueytown.

The video shows a spread passing offense that literally used the whole field, and spaced wide receivers so far apart that gaping holes could be seen in the defense before the ball was snapped. The formations were even wider than what was used at Florida State, but even then, Jimbo Fisher’s offense was not far away from what Winston ran at Hueytown.

But at Tampa Bay, both with Dirk Koetter and then Bruce Arians as coaches, Jameis Winston was asked to run offenses with formation concepts that go back to the stone age of pro football passing games. The formations featured tighter receiver spacing that in college, and certainly in high school. Yet it never seemed to dawn on either Lovie Smith or Dirk Koetter or Bruce Arians that the answer to getting the most out of Jameis lay in copying his high school offense, with its advanced use of spacing.  If they do that, the completion percentage improves and the interception rate drops like a rock.

The problem continued with Bruce Arians:

Note that the formations Arians used were a far cry from what he ran at Hueytown – more conventional, and not using the field at all.

So, before anyone makes stupid comments about Jameis Winston, look at his high school offense and ask why didn’t Tampa Bay even try and run it?

Stay tuned.
