Bucs / leaky defense
Posted Apr. 09 at 01:14 PM
The Bucs are picking 5th, and I’m thinking they’ll have to go with defense. They lost their last 10 games last year, and their defense really couldn’t stop anybody.
They ranked last against the run, they rank last with 23 sacks, and they gave up a league-high 31 points per game.
Only twice in league history has a team given up more points. Since the switch to the 16-game schedule in 1978, only six other teams have allowed 30 points per game.
Yes. Bucs need defense.
