“Didn’t Look Like Guys Were Mad”December 22nd, 2013
Bucs fans are mad.
Paying Bucs fans are very mad.
But it seemed like Bucs offensive linemen weren’t appropriately mad, so explained former Buccaneers tight end Anthony Becht on the Buccaneers Radio Network.
Becht was troubled by the look of the offensive line during the final two Buccaneers drives.
The Bucs absorbed seven sacks on the day. “It didn’t look like guys were mad. I didn’t see guys angry in the last two drives when they’re getting beaten so many times,” Becht said.
Becht went on to say getting beat happens, but a nasty attitude has to emerge along the offensive line after, say, three sacks. Guys have to fight harder to stay on blocks and teams like the Rams can’t be allowed to have that kind of success pinning their ears back on your quarterback.
That’s what happens to 4-10 teams, Becht said, stopping short of saying any Buccaneers showed any quit.
Greg Schiano weighed in completely disgusted on the Buccaneers Radio Network.
“We can’t go out and do that. This is the National Football League. We gave up seven sacks,” Schiano said.
Joe’s got no explanation for the Bucs total implosion in pass defense at times. There are a lot of highly paid veteran guys on that O-line.
