The Rash Of SacksDecember 24th, 2013
Joe knows that in the inner-walls of One Buc Palace, the decline of the offensive line is of a great concern.
For Bucs fans, it has been the source of acid reflux, and for good reason. In the past few games, opposing defenses have exploded, making Monday mornings troublesome for Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon.
Your eyes are not deceiving. Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune has the disturbing numbers.
@RCummingsTBO: The Bucs gave up 26 sacks last year, 3rd least in NFL. They’ve allowed 21 in their last five games.
Well, it’s kind of hard to pass the ball if your immobile quarterback has to be mobile, running from racing defenders to save his neck.
For whatever reason, Bucs offensive line coach Bob Bostad has been unable to use his magic to turn things around.
Maybe starting 100+ consecutive games is starting to take its toll on Donald Penn? Maybe Davin Joseph isn’t quite rite from his knee surgery a year ago?
Joe doesn’t think it is so wrong if the Bucs addbfresh blood to the offensive line in the draft come May.
