Another Measure How Bucs Underperform

November 3rd, 2013
The lone Bucs defender with more than one pick is Mark Barron.

The lone Bucs defender with more than one pick is Mark Barron, who has two.

Early in the game, on the Seahawks’ first possession, Bucs second-year safety Mark Barron picked off Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. It was Barron’s second interception of the season.

Remarkable, with Dashon Goldson and Darrelle Revis all in the same secondary, Barron leads the Bucs in interceptions. With two. Two!

Now, pulling up a chart from BSPN on NFL individual defensive statistics, entering this weekend, there were 48 other NFL players who had at least two interceptions. None of the 48, obviously, played for the Bucs. This is just stunning to Joe. How in the world can the Bucs have an All-World corner in Revis, an All-Pro in Goldson, and a promising second-year player in Barron, and before today’s game, none had more than one interception?

Often, good teams create their own opportunities. This is one reason why good teams often force opponents into turnovers. It’s also why the Bucs had their foot on the collective throats of the Seahawks for three quarters today, because the Bucs were forcing turnovers.

There are a lot of reasons why the Bucs are still winless through eight games. One is that the team has created so few turnovers on defense.

    its the weak D-Line. Other than McCoy all can be replaced and most fans would not be able to tell the difference.

    are you really surprised by yet another bad hire by the pop star…it made no sense to get a player whos style of play is being pushed out by rule changes…everybody got that but your boy

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    No pass rush = QB has time, recievers get open = no interceptions…..

  5. BucsQcCity Says:

    No dline..

    Clayborn and spence are good but the scheme is killing productivity

  6. Mr. Patrick Says:

    I’m not blaming the players on that at all. It is purely the defensive scheme and coaching. Don’t have a good pass rush because the D-Line is busy dropping into coverage and playing LB, plus DB’s are too concerned with their too many assignments. This scheme doesn’t let players play up to their potential and abilities

    May I ask, why other than McCoy, all should be replaced? WHAT has he done?
