Bucs Top NFL In Sacks; Schiano Cites “Re-Clutch”September 17th, 2013
How bout that ferocious, exotic Bucs pass rush! Your Buccaneers lead the NFL with nine sacks. Nine!
The Cowboys and Redskins are tied for second best with seven sacks each.
Greg Schiano credited his revamped secondary. Speaking on The Greg Schiano Show last night the leader of the New Schiano Order said coverage is improved and the evidence is in the film. Drew Brees had to “re-clutch” multiple times, Schiano said.
Much of the rush is the result of blitzes and stunts. Six of the sacks are from linebackers. Gerald McCoy showed mighty get-off sacking Brees off a direct explosion Sunday, Adrian Clayborn’s sack-fumble against the Saints was nullified by his personal foul though the sack stayed on the books. Daniel Te’o-Neshiem recorded a sack against the Jets.
Don’t look for the Bucs to use much traditional pass rush tactics anytime soon, especially with the results they’re getting.
