Unacceptable Confusion

December 30th, 2013

Cerebral former Bucs TE Dave Moore weighs in on the Bucs’ preparation

Joe blasted the Bucs defense for not showing up yesterday. There was no resistance. Drew Brees, through three quarters, was 22-for-28 for 376 yards and four touchdowns. Brees is great at home, but not that great.

The Bucs’ allegedly good defense was invisible, giving up the booty to the tune of 35 points in those three quarters, and it was all on the defense. The Bucs offense was at least moving the ball and eating up clock during those first 45 minutes.

Former Bucs tight end Dave Moore, color man for the Buccaneers Radio Network, explained why the level of confusion was unacceptable.

Being lost in the secondary against a division opponent is stunning, Moore said. He explained that teams start studying division opponents early in the offseason because it represents six of 16 games.

“To be confused against a team that you know, that’s in your division, is something different, Moore told Ian Beckles this morning on WDAE-AM 620. “You can’t have those type of breakdowns.”

On those breakdowns, Moore said “somebody doesn’t understand their responsibilities” and suggested the Bucs missed injured Mark Barron badly. Moore also said season-long secondary troubles were mostly about the Bucs offering up defensive backs to pick on. The guys not named Revis weren’t up to the challenges.

    We do not beat good teams even when they do not take us seriously (Seattle) because our schemes are usually horrible especially in the money half. It’s just tough to watch, they could have been beaten much worse which is the real point imo.

    We sacked Brees once….not sure we touched him other than that….I think batted down one pass…..he had all the time he needed…until we get a decent pass rush….every QB will look like Brees.

    And….Moore is right, we really missed Barron in both games…especially the St. Louis (rushing)….

    Come on Ian….what do you really think of the O line, man for man. If you were a GM, looking at these big salaries, who would you keep and replace. That is what we need to hear from Ian….Booger….do the same thing on the D line….really school us on something that you are experts about…I’d rather have Brad Johnson, Warren Sapp, or DB talk about these things. Moore does seem like he has it framed pretty well.

    There was confusion in the secondary many times this year, not just against the Saints yesterday. Even with Baron playing, they had blown coverages.

  7. Steve-O Says:

    Bucs fired Dom and Schiano!!

  8. buc4lyfe Says:

    having a good defense vs having good players are two different things….this defense is average at best, foolish……and that idiot orchestrated this dink and dunk offense….so basically they came up with a plan to change everything for glennon and ended up being worse
