“Tight Coverage All The Time”October 21st, 2013
Xs and Os man Dave Moore, the Bucs radio analyst and former tight end, says one struggle of the Bucs offense doesn’t fall on the quarterback or the offensive line.
Receivers aren’t getting open easily, Moore explained this morning on the Ron and Ian show on WDAE-AM 620.
“If you freeze [game film] three seconds in to the play, not too many guys open,” Moore said. It seems like “tight coverage all the time,” he continued.
The same issues plagued Josh Freeman, Moore said, “especially in some of the play-actions when you’re leaving the tight ends and running backs in and its a two-man route.”
Not freeing receivers is usually one part speed, one part route running and two parts coaching. The opposition seems a little too dialed into what the Bucs are doing.
