Here's what happened the last time Todd Monken debut as a play-caller:
The Oklahoma State Cowboys — with a first-year offensive coordinator named Todd Monken — finished 12-1, averaged 49.3 points and 550 yards per game, won their first and only Big 12 Championship and beat Andrew Luck and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.
And they did it with Brandon Weeden as their quarterback.
And now there's Monken's NFL play-calling debut and what's going on today in New Orleans….
Not to say the 2018 Bucs are going to have one of the NFL's best offenses, but scoring 48 points on the Saints in 48 minutes in New Orleans — scoring on seven of their first eight possessions with their backup quarterbacks — is quite a start.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is 20 for 27 for 382 yards & 4 TDs. HIs passer rating is 155.5.— Jeff Duncan (@JeffDuncan_) September 9, 2018
