Bowers Continues Transformational ComebackDecember 21st, 2012
If there was a positive from the heinous Raheem-era-like debacle in New Orleans, Joe must call out the continued recovery and ressurection of DaQuan Bowers.
Now eight games into his return from a spring Achilles tear, an injury Joe thought should have put Bowers on the shelf for a full season in order to be safe, Bowers continues to prove Joe wrong and shine.
On Sunday, he recorded his third sack in part-time duty. Today, the leader of the New Schiano Order was quick to praise the progression of Bowers’ play this season in addition to a transformation born from his dedication.
“The thing that I mentioned when he came back is that he really did more than rehab his Achilles, he changed his body somewhat, you know, and he’s stronger. He’s quicker. And I think, you know, the sky’s the limit for Da’Quan,” Greg Schiano said. “He got to play, get two more games God willing, and then another whole offseason with the program, I think he’s going to be a really talented guy.”
There’s a lot of hope and expectation for Bowers and injured Adrian Clayborn, rockstar general manager Mark Dominik’s back-to-back defensive end picks in 2010. Those guys are a huge key to next season. However, the Bucs absolutely have to re-sign Michael Bennett, who will cost a small fortune. Bennett is the best horse in the stable.
