Spin Move A Must For Stylez White

October 30th, 2009

With a few adjustments, Stylez G. White could be a major sack machine, writes former Bucs DE Steve White.

JoeBucsFan.com analyst and former Bucs defensive end Steve White isn’t just about breaking down defensive line play like no other.

White lives and breathes Bucs football, and his blog is filled with quality Bucs takes that only a hardcore football man could provide.

Joe recommends you put White’s blog in your favorites. Just before Josh Freeman was named starting quarterback, White churned out a top-10 wish list for the Bucs during the bye week. Joe’s plucked No. 3 for you to read here; it’s a personal favorite.

3. Greg (Stylez) White needs to develop a spin move. White is a really good speed rusher and uses his hands really well against offensive tackles, but he gets run by the quarterback a lot. Many times this is a function of the opposing quarterback stepping up in the pocket and none of our inside guys being there to make the sack. If White were to stop about a step deeper than the level of the quarterback, get low and take a hard step with his inside foot, swing his outside arm around and pivot inside he would be right there to make a lot more sacks. I like the hump move that he uses at times but its not really a good counter move for his speed rushes. Rushing from the right side means that a lot of the time the B gap to his side will be open because most teams normally have their formation strengths to the defense’s left the majority of the time. For that reason there is a natural lane that most quarterbacks are going to step up into. If he can develop that spin move this week and is able to start mixing it as a late counter off his speed rush, it will be like taking candy from a baby and our pass rush over all will significantly improve.

See, Joe told you White breaks it down like no other. The man needs one of those telestrators with the fancy markers.
