Raheem High On Foster’s 29 SnapsSeptember 14th, 2011
Labeled a tackling machine coming out of college, starting middle linebacker Mason Foster flashed some of that production Sunday.
The rookie played just 43 percent of the snaps, as he was off the field on third down and on three-receiver sets, but his name hit the stat sheet hard, for whatever that’s worth. Raheem Morris praised his rookie MLB while heavily critiquing his other linebackers during The Raheem Morris Show on WDAE-AM 620 Monday evening.
“Six tackles in those 29 snaps and one assist. He really played productive,” Raheem said. “When [Foster] was in, he certainly played well.”
Joe didn’t see that a crushing physical presence from Foster on Sunday, but he surely had a solid debut and surely wasn’t the problem on the Bucs defense.
