The Bucs are lighter? I suppose that depends on who is the field.
And of course (most likely) the starting four, Spires - Hovan - Carter - Chuk which features three stout run defenders with Chuk being the only question mark?
As of now the starters are Spires, Hovan, Hay and Chuk. Â Spires/Hovan started the season last year. Hay
replaces Booger (285 to 300) and Chuk replaces Rice (250 to 268)..about 15 lbs lighter at each position.
Of course the lineup could change..and weight in itself is not the determining factor in stopping the run.
But..I'm fairly certain we will start a smaller front line than we started with last year. Here's hoping depth
has been helped with Carter/Sims..and I would be pretty happy if the managed to pick up Warren.
