Die-hard Bucs, Noles and Magic fan. I love everything about sports.I'm an avid golfer that has a 25 HCP, but I still love getting out on the course. Living in Atlanta isn't the same as Florida, but I enjoy it here. I'm 25 years old and happily married. Life is good. "I have come that you may have life and life to the fullest" John 10:10

How Ryan Torain Happened

This was supposed to be a game where running dominated. The weather was bad and both teams ranked at the bottom of the league in defending the run. I scoffed at the notion that the Bucs had much to...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Arizona Cardinals: Preview

When studying for this game today, I was going over stats and rosters as I always do. In doing so, it's still hard to believe that the Cardinals are a .500 team and the Bucs sit at 4-2. In similar...

Stevens Cut, Purvis Activated

+

As expected Stevens was cut and Purvis activated. There was a moment at the end of the game when Winslow went out and we relied on John Gilmore in an obvious passing situation. That's where the effect of Stevens arrest was felt.

NFL to suspend players for violent hits

39

Taking the violence out of football. What did you guys think of the 3 hits in question that we saw on Sunday? To me, it wasn't the hit on DJax but the result of the hit. It was clean, but hard. A DB, LB's job is to separate the receiver from the ball in situations like that. It's absurd.

New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Yikes!

In what was a grim reminder of last season, the Bucs barely avoided a shutout in garbage time. The run game on both sides of the ball lacked any physicality and as a consequence, failed. Our pass...

LeBeau didn't school his players to defend specific areas. They did cover a receiver coming into their space, but they had to know which one it was before it happened. And they needed to know what route was coming, then try to break it up. As the defender moved to the ball, he had to take what LeBeau called the "intercept angle." We want to trick them with a guy they're not figuring on coming, or somebody who shows up in a place you'd never expect him to be. That's the concept in a nutshell: You hold them by the nose, then sneak around and kick them in the tail— just like General Patton used to say." Link to ESPN.Com article

Excerpt from Jon Jaworski's book, found here at ESPN.Com Just some good insights into the defensive mind of the Steelers, Dick LeBeau. I agree with Craig. If there is a way to beat the Steelers, it's by spreading them out. Running short short but complicated routes. The offensive line is going to be confused and will give up pressure. Freeman has to look for running lanes. I read somewhere that LeBeau's philosphy is to create the "illusion" of pressure without necessarily always bringing extra guys. Williams / Graham have to be keeping their eyes open and taking the outside guy on blitz pickups. This gives Freeman options. Should be a fun chess match.
