Bucs Find A Sharpe BelieverDecember 1st, 2012
Line up with three wide receivers, force Denver into nickel coverage, and then run at the nickel.
That’s what former superstar receiver Sterling Sharpe says the Bucs need to do against Denver’s sometimes porous run defense in order to let Doug Martin put a resounding December “stamp on his rookie of the year performance,” and set up explosive plays off play-action.
In this NFL Network “playbook” segment, Sharpe lays out on film why he believes the Bucs will be beat the Broncos.
On the flip side, cohorts Brian Baldinger and Ronde Barber hater Donovan McNabb explain why Peyton Manning will carve up the Bucs and why the Broncos’ defensive line is so deep.
First and foremost, Joe wants to see the Bucs start fast, as they’ve done literally all season and preseason. That’ll give them confidence in the tough conditions at Mile High, and allow the running game Sharpe talks about to develop.
