Behind Enemy Lines: One-On-One with The Pewter Plank
The Bucs have lost two straight games while allowing on average close to 40 points. What do you believe they need to do to limit the points this week?
Establish the pass rush and figure out how to cover somebody. A great deal of off-season work was done to build a pass rush and rebuild a secondary that allowed a 70% completion rate in 2015. Robert Ayers was brought in, Noah Spence was drafted and Gerald McCoy are still here to attack the passer.
Brent Grimes was signed and Vernon Hargreaves was drafted to make plays on the ball in the secondary. Well, they have a mere five sacks in three games, and the rookie has been the best defensive back by far. Grimes has been bad, and teams throw the ball at will against Tampa Bay. Ranking 20th in the league is unacceptable, and they will continue to give up points if it doesn’t change.
