Larry English Puts Da’Quan Bowers On NoticeAugust 23rd, 2014
You know what jumped out at Joe more than anything in today’s Bucs win over the bungling Bills? There was actually a pass rush!
Oh, of course, Gerald McCoy was bursting through the line like he always does, as if shot out of a cannon. But of the five sacks today, none came from GMC. Imagine if the Bucs can continue to get heat from others who don’t wear the No. 93?
One of those guys was a newbie by the name of Larry English. Even though he is new to the Bucs, he’s not new to the NFL. English, a former first round pick of the Chargers in 2009, was released by the Chargers just before training camp.
Today, he had to make Bucs defensive lineman Da’Quan Bowers a bit nervous. Yes, it was only preseason, but English had two sacks. Bowers has a total of 5.5 sacks … in three years!
Bowers, who is hurt again, is easily on the bubble. He is now on his third coach and second front office and neither general manager Jason Licht nor coach Lovie Smith have any ties to him.
The way English played today, Joe has a hunch Bowers may be playing guitar in a gospel troupe coming to a church near you very soon.
