Lions Coach Indentifies Bucs’ GreatnessDecember 17th, 2010
A reporter out in Detroit decided to pen a story today that essentially looks at how the Bucs have eight wins but aren’t that good.
What a fresh concept. Ugh.
Carlos Monarrez, of the Detroit Free Press, caught up with Lions players and head coach Jim Schwartz, who points toward the Bucs’ greatness in the turnover department.
“They’re plus-eight in turnovers, which is sixth in the league,” he said. “So, six teams will make the playoffs. If you want to say they’re playoff caliber in that, they are.
“They’ve done a good job of intercepting the football, and they’ve done a good job of taking care of it on offense. So that’s probably where it starts.”
Though not last week in Washington, the Bucs have been stellar at protecting the ball. And they should be salivating at the chance to intercept Drew Stanton, he of the off-target pass, and put some hats on rookie running back Jahvid Best.
Joe sincerely hopes LeGarrette Blount’s fumble last week didn’t scare Greg Olson too much.
