“Another Episode Of The Lack Of Coverage Skills”December 16th, 2012
Following the Raheem-era-like shutout beating absorbed by the Bucs today in New Orleans, Buccaneers Radio Network analyst and former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht said fans witnessed another episode of the lack of coverage skills in the Bucs secondary.
Frankly, Joe thinks the key word there is “skills.”
The Bucs are just so outclassed at cornerback, it’s impossible to even be upset with the corners themselves, other than me-first Eric Wright.
Joe must wonder why the Bucs have been so insistent that Ronde Barber remain at safety when Ahmad Black is better at his position than the Bucs’ cornerbacks are at theirs. While Barber doesn’t have the speed he once did, Joe knows Barber’s better than what the Bucs are trotting out there right now.
Greg Schiano has said repeatedly how he wants to get the best players on the field, but that seems to not be ringing true given the situation in the defensive backfield.
