Sheridan: Tandy’s “Really Good At Everything”

November 21st, 2013

Please, prove Joe wrong in Detroit, Keith Tandy. Please!

Joe’s no fan of Tandy’s skills, but Bucs coaches are. Greg Schiano offered big praise for the second-year safety’s intelligence and reliability today, and defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan took the Tandy love several steps further.

“Really a versatile guy as far as playing different positions. He’s a guy I would describe as really good at everything,” Sheridan said. “Maybe not a wow spectacular dynamic player at any one particular part of his game. But he’s good in run support, he can tackle, he’s athletic, he can play man-to-man coverage, he understands zone coverage, he can play different components of zone coverage, he can make checks off of formations. He’s done an outstanding job. I told him that a couple of weeks ago. He has really come around. We put him in there. I don’t think we miss a beat.”

Yes, Sheridan said the Bucs would miss suspended Dashon Goldson.

Joe asked Sheridan if the loss of Goldson meant he’d change the way Mark Barron is used, but the answer was a definitive, “No. We’re going to try to use Mark as we have.”

The Bucs are quite confident in Tandy. Joe’s going to break out the rabbit’s foot and cross fingers.

    Lets hope he’s right…you can bet that this is also Schiano’s opinion of the “Tandy Man”….I was beginning to wonder whether or not Tandy was our next Myron….

    Ive watched every play of every Bucs game this season and I cannot recall being too upset with Keith Tandy at any point.

    I agree he is no Dashon Goldson or Mark Barron.

    But lets not act like the drop off is the equivalent of going from Brian Kelly to Tim Wansley. Its not.

  3. Westsidebucsfan Says:

    If he is so good, why keep Goldson?

    “If he is so good, why keep Goldson?”

    The same reason Philly keeps Michael Vick. You need depth at every position.

  5. Chuck Says:

    @ Justin I totally agree with everything you said.. and I still have nightmares about Wansley.
