A Lot More “Learning” Going OnJune 5th, 2012
There are many theories why Raheem Morris and his coaching staff lost the Bucs last season.
What’s completely true or not is often up for debate. However, Joe found his conversation with E.J. Biggers today very telling when it comes to what led the Bucs to the heinous 10-game losing streak they currently are riding.
Unprompted by Joe, Biggers painted a picture of not knowing everything he needed to know under former secondary coach Jimmy Lake. Biggers even went so far to imply he didn’t always know where he needed to be.
JoeBucsFan.com: Do you feel like you’re getting better in this new system?
E.J. Biggers: Oh, of course. Of course. Learning each and every aspect of the defense, I mean every position in the secondary, you know, where D-linemen [go], everybody everything, It works itself out. Just being here each and every day and learning is going to help me.
Joe: What specifically has helped you?
Biggers: Just knowing, like I said, knowing everything on the defense right now, knowing where the defensive line are. I mean a lot last year, I don’t know if I knew everything like that. But like I said this year, everybody knows everything. Like I said, that helps you as a secondary guy because like I said you’re the last line of defense so you have to know that. You have to know where you have to be.
Well, that about says it all. Joe will raise a cold one tonight to the New Schiano Order.
