Bucs On 2013 Sacks Pace

December 2nd, 2014

greg schiano 0910Joe’s got his calculator out, and it showsTampa Bay is on track to equal its sacks total of 2013.

Wait a minute.

Who could have imagined such a thing three months ago?

Right now, the Bucs have 26 sacks, good for 18th best in the NFL. That puts Tampa Bay on pace for 35 sacks, their 2013 total.

Hitting that mark likely will require serious production the next two Sundays in Detroit and Carolina. Matthew Stafford and Cam Newton get dropped an average of three times a game. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, who the Bucs face in their final two games, don’t take a load of sacks.

    To coin a phrase from Hillary Clinton “At this point, what difference does it make”…

    More QB pressures would be about as good as sacks. Lovie and company went all offense this draft. Many here suggest the same approach the next draft. That seems to be where the biggest holes remain, from QB to line play. If they go that route again, that must mean the defense is fairly set in personnel, beside possible free agent pickups. I would’nt be upset if they drafted all offense again, our glaring weak area.

    TBBF…But that phrase made Hillary look like an idiot…

  4. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    All offense would be fine…..this may also help us attract a great OC…..
    Most OCs would jump at the chance to have a predominately offensive draft starting with a QB with francise potential.

    i don’t trust lovie to draft for this team. Mike Evans was a no brainer, so he gets zero credit for that one.

    what has the rest of his draft picks done? bueller????

    I mean the dude went way out in left field when the OL was the need.

    They say don’t judge for 3 years, so we’ll see. but in year one I don’t trust him with the picks.

    Just goes to show that Schiano/Sheriden’s D with all the stunts got more out of the roster than the supposedly NFL quality Smith/Frazier D. A bitter pill for a lot of Bucs fans to swallow I’m sure.

    Michael Johnson sucks.

    At least all the Winston Love is dying around here.

  9. buc4lyfe Says:

    What makes you think this team has to do anything to “attract an oc” it’s the NFL damn really? Who wouldn’t be interested in a team where the head coach is virtually clueless about the offense and will give you free reign over player acquisitions and play calling

    The thing that bothered me in last year’s draft was Herron (can’t catch a football) and Charles Sims (who?) when RB and WR were the least of our concerns. Most of us asked why back then and most of us are still asking why. Our running game has sucked no matter how many backs you put back there because we have no O Line. This should have been Captain Obvious from the start. We needed O Line and D Line help. Instead Lovie tried to patch that with Michael Johnson, Evan D Smith and A Collins who have turned into epic fails. This is why a team like Green Bay continues to dominate and we continue to blow chunks. Green Bay knows to build through the draft and they put the effort into outstanding scouting. There is a lesson to be learned here. We should have been done with our rebuilding efforts but instead find ourselves 5 years back, still rebuilding.

    Not to mention a second round on a te when wright is what’s missing from this offense and our te play is forgetable

  12. Mike10 Says:

    haha we’re playing the Packers!…. Our only chance is to mirror that throwback game – Freeman’s first start.. “beating the Packers”, that sounds funny

  13. Whocares92 Says:

    Schiano’s first year here we almost gave up the most yards in nfl history. Lovie smiths defense for the past 5 weeks is playing better than any performance under Schiano. We have no QB, no OC, no O-line. If we had an actual offense we’d be leading this division comfortably. Give it another year and I bet we will win the division.

    Bucs fans have the shortest memories of any fan base in any sport

  15. ChanEpic Says:

    We certainly will not be playing against A Rod and probably not Brees either. Why risk those two super stars and play them against this joke of a team? So I’m telling you, there is still a chance to get 35.

    “Bucs fans have the shortest memories of any fan base in any sport”

    YET you forget why we have no QB, and no OL. Lovie Smith hand picked McCown and the O line.
