Changes May Be Coming To SecondarySeptember 27th, 2010
While head coach Raheem Morris and Cody Grimm will admit the Bucs rookie safety may have been roasted on Mike Wallace’s first touchdown yesterday in the Bucs ugly loss to Pittsburgh, both claim Grimm played fine after that.
Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune isn’t so sure. Appearing on the “Fabulous Sports Babe Show” on WHBO-AM 1040 earlier this afternoon, Cummings suggested the Bucs are looking for ways to help out Grimm, if he remains as the starter.
“I know [the Bucs] are going to look at other guys, possibly bring some in and work some other guys out and that’s not a bad thing,” Cummings said. “It’s a little obvious that [Grimm] is a little out of his league right now. I know they are looking at bringing guys in. Maybe they go to a three-man rotation [at safety]? Maybe Corey Lynch gets some time? Maybe Sabby Piscitelli will get another shot?”
Cummings went on to say that the blame of the loss should not nor cannot be blamed on Grimm making his first start, just that Grimm isn’t quite ready to be a primetime NFL player and, like other safeties of Bucs past including John Lynch, needs to find his sea legs first.
