Bucs Tied For Third-Most Interceptions

November 25th, 2013

It feels like a lifetime ago when Bucs fans were forced to endure the horrors of the Fearsome Foursome, “E.J., Leonard, Danny and LeQuan” in the Bucs’ secondary, which was among the very worst in NFL history last season.

The Bucs made sweeping changes to their defensive backfield, and it’s starting to show up in the stats sheet. The Bucs have the 14th-ranked defense in the NFL and the pass defense is nearing middle-of-the-pack.

One number standing tall is the Bucs total of 15 interceptions. That’s tied for third in the NFL. Seven of the top-10 teams in that category have winning records. It’s been interceptions by committee for the Bucs. Keith Tandy, Mark Barron, Mason Foster, Johnthan Banks, Darrelle Revis and Lavonte David each have two.

    We still need 2 more solid corners, our depth in the secondary is suspect. Revis needs another lockdown corner on the other side of the field. Add a pass rushing DE, this defense becomes nasty.

    On offense we need a burner in the slot, an athletic pass catching TE that can block as well, and we need to fortify our O-Line just a bit. We’re good at QB so far.

    Gotta tip the cap to schiano and dominick for being able to effectively shore up the weaknesses of the defense each of the years schiano’s been here and since dominick’s been given access to the checkbook. first year they fixed the run D. now they’ve gotten the pass D functioning well.
