Cooter Has Diversified the Lions’ Offensive Attack Since Taking Over as OC


Jim Bob Cooter’s appointment as Coordinator for the Lions couldn’t have come at a better time. After his appointment to the post, Cooter imported New Orleans Saints’ offense to Detroit and changed Lion’s gameplay for better.

To crown it all, Cooter merged Lombardi’s old scheme with a couple of new elements he gathered from Denver and Indianapolis. These are elements Jim Bob Cooter mixed to strengthen the offensive attack position.

For those that took advantage of their bookmaker free bets in support of the Lions, you will love to hear what Bob Cooter had to say about his style. “You learn a lot along the way. Some of the things you learn either as games roll or when you rewind the video or wherever, you introduce them into the offense”.

Cooter continues to add that some of the things he is using in the offense is what he knows that will work best. Jim Bob is well aware that there is a lot of stuff that will get pulled up from his training, playing and coaching in the past.

Jim Bob Cooter Man of the Moment

As a former backup quarterback who played for the University of Tennessee, Cooter has fast-tracked his coaching rank. He started by filling a graduate assistant position in 2007 with the Volunteers.

Thanks to his fast thinking and mind-blowing prediction of a game’s outcome, Jim was able to fast track his career. In just two short years, Jim was elevated to offensive assistant with the Colts and worked with legends such as Frank Reich, Peyton Manning, Clyde Christensen and Tom Moore.

Anyone who followed Jim’s career and used their free bets to support Bob’s fast moving career could afford a smile. In another three years, Cooter was called in to fill the quality control position at Kansas City.

Cooter used this placement to learn a new scheme under Brian Daboll, within a year’s time, Cooter left Kansas for Denver filling in the assistant offensive point in 2013. At Denver Cooter met up again with Manning and Adam Gase the offensive coordinator.

Everywhere he went, Cooter kept notes, and now that he is the Lions’ offensive coordinator, he is using his notebook. He is now feeding the notes into the Lions’ offense after filling in for week 8, with his strategy proving to work, it’s time punters rethink how they should cash in their free bets.

The Notebook

Jim is happy that every gameplay, game guide, and video are computerized today; he is taking advantage of the documented material. He is sifting through the information, taking bits from different places and trying it out for the offense.

So far, Jim Bob’s strategy seems to be working as his mix and matching is working in the Lions’ advantage. Playing it safe, Cooter is not giving details of what he learned from his stint at the Colts and the Broncos, rather he wants the world to see his impact on Detroit’s offense.

As much as the Lions have suffered several setbacks this season, punters shouldn’t dismiss the team when taking advantage of Bookmaker free bets. In the first half season they averaged 18.6 points, now in the second half, they are averaging 23.6 points, a significant jump!

The Lions were hoping that their gameplay will be less and less predictable; they plan to include more elements from Cooter’s notebook. A wise move given that they defeated New Orleans this week.


Given his successful start as the main man on the Lions’ Offensive side, we are all eager to see how well Jim Bob Cooter’s strategy from the past, present and probably forward thinking with help the Lions!
