Stylez White Claims Defense Is To Blame For Loss

December 6th, 2009

Joe is fond of Stylez G. White. Thinks he’s a great guy.

Must be a good teammate, too, as evidenced by a crazy suggestion he had after the Bucs loss to the Panthers while speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Ther’s no question interceptions weres to blame for the loss, specifically the interceptions thrown in the end zone.

White doesn’t see it that way. He claims the loss is on the defense.

“Turnovers? [Sigh]. Not much you can do about that,” White said. “We as a defense have to put our offense in a better position. There are no excuses for our defense. We have to get better.”

WHAT??!! Stylez, buddy, the defense only gave up 16 points, and only two field goals in the final three quarters. Joe’s not sure how much better defense you can play, especially when we are talking about a defense that, under the tutelage of defrocked defensive coordinator Jim Bates was one of the worst Joe has ever laid eyes on.

Joe appreciates Stylez falling on the sword, but man, there’s no need to go to ridiculous lengths in order to gain street cred in the locker room.

Here are the rest of White’s quotes:

“We didn’t make any adjustments [by the defense]. We weren’t tackling well. Once we started making tackles, we were OK. We came in with a good gameplan. Once we calmed down we were OK.

“We played good defense and it gave us a chance to win. When we make plays we have a chance to win. [Mistackles early in the game], that was on us.”

    Maybe he is calling out RahRah. Maybe there is some discension in the ranks. I didn’t get to see the game due to being deployed but I for the highlights on a low bar season.

    Could be some dissension going on but one things for sure – if they don’t start playing any better, they’ll have some super help after the draft.

  4. Matt Says:

    I’m pretty sure any defensive player worth anything thinks EVERY loss is on them. This defense continues to start slow. It’s been A LOT better in the past two games, but they still had tons of tackling issues.

    That being said…yeah, Freeman lost this one.
