The Lessons Of “Sackless” Kyle MooreAugust 25th, 2013
Once a upon a time, rockstar general manager Mark Dominik and Raheem Morris gifted the starting left defensive end job to sackless Kyle Moore in 2010. Moore was a second-year pro with no sacks to his name, hence the nickname.
Moore was a liability and never did record a sack with the Bucs before landing in Buffalo in 2011. He revived his career there last season with his first three sacks.
Moore was cut today by the Bears, a team pretty darn deep at his position.
Joe brings up Moore because the Da’Quan Bowers mess always reminds Joe of Moore. Bowers was gifted the starting left end job this season for no logical reason. Double-digit sacks for Bowers was the rallying cry from Greg Schiano. But oft-injured 23-year-olds light on experience should never be anointed starting jobs.
To the New Schiano Order’s credit, it’s obvious the regime refuses to let Bowers become the next Kyle Moore and has stripped Bowers of his starting role.
Newcomer veteran Trevor Scott looks like he could help make up for the loss of Michael Bennett. And the Bucs remain high on the not-too-wild Samoan, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim. Perhaps the Bucs could bring back Moore to compete with Bowers.
