Last season the team brought in Larry Coyer to replace Rod and after just one season the Bucs made a very calculated move in the off-season by prompting Wash who spent one season as an assistant under Coyer to defensive line coach.

Last season the defensive line total 22.5 sacks through 16 regular season games or 1.4 sacks a game. Through just 12 games the defensive line has totaled 20 sacks or 1.66 sacks while it might not seem like much on the surface they are on pace to better the 2007 season by 5 sacks. But the most impressive improvement has come from tackles for loss through 16 games in 2007 the team had a total of 20 tackles for loss, while through the first 12 games of the 2008 season the team has 36 tackles for loss which is why the run defense has only given up one 100 yard rusher and one rushing touchdown all season. The team is on pace to get 48 tackles for loss which is nearly two and a half time more then they totaled in 2007. They have went from averaging 1.25 tackles for loss in 2007 to a whopping 3 tackles for loss in 2008 an improvement of 1.75 almost two more a game.


In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

I was aware of the better production by the defensive line but I didn't realize it was that significant.

Although the D-Line has improved since last year I still don't think the defense is getting enough pressure consistently.

I'll say this.  He has them playing hard every down.  There's no quit in those guys.  They are just a step late to the QB most times.  He's much better than Franklin, not sure he's as good as Rod....

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

Great stuff Yucc!   I'd still rather have Marinelli coaching the d-line, if available and if he wanted it...but Wash isn't a bad Plan B

No one player is dominating, but you have to like the depth. Six linemen have a sack this year, and you have to think Haye will fall into one by the end of the season, too.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
