“Better Reads, Better Angles”

November 8th, 2021

So what’s the key for the Buccaneers defense in the nine-game stretch to close out the 2021 regular season?

Former Bucs tight end Anthony Becht (2005-2007) put his focus on the front-7.

Big plays haven’t been there this season from Devin White and Lavonte David. Combined they have just two tackles for loss, plus no sacks, forced fumbles or interceptions.

“From a linebacker standpoint, maybe just some more splash plays, some better reads, some better angles, things that can contain the run game a little better,” Becht said. “I think the last couple of weeks have shown some porousness in the run defense, something that hasn’t been really an issue. And again, it’s just all about just understanding keys and getting to your spots and being effective when you get there.”

Again, Becht was talking about the Bucs’ entire and mighty front-7. Becht seems to think that unit can carry the defense enough to lead it to where it went last February, assuming the Bucs don’t fall apart with more injuries to the defensive backfield.

Joe agrees.

    Did u guys quit doing podcasts???? They get shorter & shorter and have more LIVE reads which is a complete rip-off.

  2. Medicated Pete Says:

    Becht is a B.S. artist (i don’t think he watches a single play)

  3. SOEbuc Says:

    They have to play in a difficult Bowles scheme where everyone has to be in the proper position. If you blitz the middle LB all day opponents are just going to eat up yardage on a post all day because our backup CBs can’t handle it.

    It is Painfully obvious to All of us that ‘thinking’ is a struggle for you Pete.

    Medicated Pete: Becht is a BS artist.
    Also Medicated Pete: Mike Evans isn’t good at football.

    Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot.

    I don’t want to see anymore dancing until they start shutting folks down.

  8. Craig Says:

    They also need to remember to wrap up on the tackle. Not good to get a good angle and then arm tackle.

    SOEbuc, Bowles runs a complex D??? It’s as basic as it gets. I just hope these coaches are watching films on what Titans did, Jags did to Buffalo and especially what Atlanta did to Saints because if they’re not then they are the dunces of the NFL. The philosophy or run it till it works, DOESN’T WORK!!!

    White seems so jacked up that he runs past guys all the time this year.

    Last year …tackle…sack…man down…rinse…repeat
