Dominik: Pause = SacksApril 22nd, 2013
Greg Schiano already was calling for a double-digit sack season for Da’Quan Bowers. Now rockstar general manager Mark Dominik is talking about Darrelle Revis leading to a significant increase in Buccaneers sacks.
Hmm, will the New Schiano Order issue a revised sack prediction for Bowers?
Speaking this afternoon to the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620, Dominik explained how Revis will cause elite quarterbacks to “pause” at times because of his presence in the secondary.
And that “pause,” per Dominik, will lead to sacks.
Joe’s having a little fun wondering about the revised Bowers sack total. But Dominik’s comments illustrate that the greatest question marks on the Bucs defense now revolve around the pass rush. The Bucs (for now) have a lot riding on unproven defensive ends with weak depth along the entire D-line.
