Time To Stop The StreakSeptember 13th, 2013
What streak, you ask?
Well, Adrian Clayborn is on a six-game run without a sack, dating back to his final two games of 2011, three last season before he got hurt, and last week against the Jets.
Yes, Joe’s shining a big negative spotlight because a streak like this can’t continue from a first-round pick at defensive end.
Clayborn plays hard and fast. He’s a very likeable guy, but he must produce, especially pass rushing alongside a Pro Bowl tackle. Clayborn would be the first to tell you. The rust on him should be completely shaken off after a full training camp and preseason, and opening day.
The Bucs likely need manbeast defensive performances from their key defensive players on Sunday to force turnovers and rattle and stifle Drew Brees. Clayborn is one of those guys. That’s what they’ll have to do to win.
