Eric Wright Needs To Improve His TacklingApril 10th, 2013
Now that, for the time being, we know troubled cornerback Eric Wright will return to the Bucs, please allow Joe to make a simple request to Mr. Wright:
“Improve your tackling.”
The TV watchers at ProFootballFocus.com put down their notebooks and closed their Excel spreadsheets long enough to type out who the worst tackling cornerbacks were last year in the NFL.
Perhaps not so shockingly, two of the worst 15 tacklers playing cornerback wore pewter and red last season, fan favorite E.J. Biggers and Wright.
In the sordid list linked, Biggers was the seventh-worst tackling corner and Wright was No. 13.
Now Joe knows that Bucs coach Greg Schiano is a big stickler on tackling. Joe hopes that maybe, inspired by his friend, safety Dashon Goldson, and additional coaching from Schiano and his staff, Wright improves on this depressing number.
