The Sieve Known As Sean Mayhem

October 13th, 2009

The Eagles were like ravenous sharks Sunday. They smelled blood and attacked.

The blood came from the wound on the Bucs offensive line also known as Sean Mayhem, the walking turnstile. Paul Domowitch of the Philly Daily News documents one such example of how Mayhem was so overmatched, he rendered the offense useless Sunday.

Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon got his most playing time of the season and played well, often lining up right over center Sean Mahan, who was no match for Dixon’s strength. On a second-and-10 run by Williams on the Bucs’ second possession, Dixon had pushed Mahan 2 yards into the backfield before Williams got the handoff. He had to bounce it outside, where Omar Gaither tackled him for a 4-yard loss.

If guys were blowing past and through Mayhem before a play could ever begin, no wonder the Bucs offense had trouble getting into gear.
