“Top-3” Secondary In The NFLMay 12th, 2013
After delivering a pass defense in 2012 that should have prompted Team Glazer to issue free Tums to all season ticket holders, the Bucs now have NFL types raving about what could be the best secondary in the NFL.
Former general manager Charley Casserly and his pundit colleagues ponder this thought/fantasy and more in this NFL Network video.
Casserly is of the mind that Darrelle Revis might not be used to take out the opposition’s stud wideout talents. “You double cover their best receiver and [Revis] goes to their other receiver, and now they have nowhere to go with the football,” he said.
Regardless, the consensus in the video is that the Bucs possess a “top-3” secondary or darn close to it, assuming — perhaps the biggest assumption of the offseason — that Revis shows up healthy and ready to go on opening day.
