'No juice': Koetter again unhappy with Bucs' offense

As was the case in last week's first joint practice with the Jaguars, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter was less than pleased by his offense's work Tuesday in the first of two joint practices with the Browns at One Buc Place.

"No juice. No juice," Koetter said. "No one wanted to practice today. ... We had balls tipped, we had poor throws and we had bad protection. Bad combination. ... Overall, a bad day on offense. I wasn't on the dfefensive field and Coach (Mike) Smith said we did fine over there."

The Browns defense had a handful of interceptions against the Bucs -- Jameis Winston had a pass picked off by Joe Haden, and Mike Glennon had a pass tipped off the hands of receiver Kenny Bell and to cornerback Jamar Taylor. Koetter said the team also struggled from a blocking standpoint handling the Browns' 3-4 defensive front, giving them work against a look they'll see in Week 2 against Arizona.

"Today's a good example of why we want to work against a 3-4," Koetter said. "I would hate for that to be a game and be our first exposure to a 3-4."
