“Defense Does Not Win Championships”August 11th, 2011
Arguably the great Bucs defensive player of all time, Warren Sapp, dropped so many quality nuggets during his visit to One Buc Palace yesterday, Joe still has more to share.
This time it’s Sapp glowing about the Josh Freeman, his “MVP candidate,” and offering an education to Bucs fans who yearn for the days of Sapp and his teammates.
“I’m going dispel the rumor. Defense does not win championships,” Sapp said via video on Buccaneers.com. “Defense gives you a chance, and the offense will win it for you. And the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a franchise quarterback in Josh Freeman.”
“Boy, you give me Josh Freeman, and we might have about four of these things, [championships] around here,” Sapp said, referring to the Bucs teams of his era.
Sapp also was clear about what he expects from the Bucs in 2010. “I don’t care what anybody says. This is a playoff team.”
Joe’s pleased that Sapp has high expectations. Joe also agrees that there’s no reason for the Bucs to take a step backwards in 2011.
