“We Can Stop The Run. Period!”October 15th, 2012
Notorious Bucs critic Ian Beckles, who played guard for the Bucs from 1990 to 1996, seems to have become a complete believer in the New Schiano Order’s brand of defense.
Beckles’ words kissed the feet of Schiano during the Ron and Ian Show on WDAE-AM 620 today.
“I don’t know what [Schiano's] done to turn these guys around so fast after what we saw last year. We can stop the run. Period!” Beckles said.
Beckles went on to rave about the Bucs’ success against an old school, run-committed offense like Kansas City’s, and about Mason Foster, who replaced Beckles’ favorite punching bag, Barrett Ruud.
“Mason Foster is attacking. He’s five times more physical than he was last year. That’s coaching,” Beckles said.
Joe agrees that the Bucs’ run-stuffing transformation has been extraordinary. Hell, the sheer metamorphosis of Roy Miller should get Schiano an ESPY nomination.
