“Cody’s A Tough Hombre”July 12th, 2011
The Bucs have rolled out another phase of their excellent Xs and Os series on the team website. This time it’s secondary coach Jimmy Lake showcasing Cody Grimm’s sure tackling and instinctive play, and Lake breaks down every phase of Grimm’s interception against the Bengals.
The way Lake raves about Grimm — “Cody’s a tough hombre,” among other superlatives — one might think the 2010 seventh round pick is a new cornerstone of the Bucs defense.
Joe hopes so. This kid almost single-handedly brought the Bucs run defense from putrid to almost average for a stretch of the season before he broke his leg.
One has to wonder whether Grimm’s small frame can handle his level of violence long term. Joe has a good feeling.
