“So Many Missed Tackles”

September 30th, 2012

Alfred Morris wasn’t the only one embarrassing Bucs defenders today

Despite the intricate Greg Schiano tackling plan, the Bucs tackling was dreadful in the first half of the heinous home loss to the Redskins.

Aqib Talib, Eric Wright and Ronde Barber were all guilty. And there were others.

“So many missed tackles,” Michael Bennett said after the game on the Buccaneers Radio Network.

Bennett said the Bucs were ugly in the first half and on the final drive. And he even dredged up the horror of 2011, “We can’t revert back to last year.”

Fans should be able to see the Bucs are a “good team” and just have to learn how to finish “and not be suprsied when we’re up” on the scoreboard.

The leader of the New Schiano Order also was on the radio explaining that the first half was not the way they draw it up on the tackling plan.

And what was different in the second half Coach Schiano, when the Bucs outscored the Skins 16-3?

“We tackled better on defense and hit some shots to open things up,” Schiano said.

Unfortunately, it was too little too late.

    RONDE. Dear lord man. Sheridan/Coach Coop need to limit Ronde to the big nickel defense only. I want to see Black in there on all run downs.

    Hard to defend teams with “franchise quarterbacks”, isn’t it. Manning, Romo, Griffin. Get ready for Ryan and Bree’s. we are screwed with “gosh” freeman

    I’m more worried about Eric Wright’s head than Josh Freeman’s at this point.

    Even with all the missed tackles, the defense kept this one close. Those poor b*stards are expected to close out a game the offense barely showed up for. I was at the game – the first half boo birds (including me) were screaming for some sort of offense and the defense was holding on. I don’t understand why the play calling they used in the second half isn’t the same play calling they use at the beginning of the game…….the conservative option works when you have the lead. Time to flip the playbook of the offensive coordinator.

    Barber just doesn’t look comfortable at safety. Move him back.
