Boid, I know what you are saying, he could and should be doing a lot more.Â Phillips should be inside helping with the run because that is supposed to be his strong suit.Â The thing is that him and Allen are playing well in pass protection and people were saying that neither one of the could cover.Â The stats show that to be wrong, and if the Dline was getting more pressure the D would probably be giving up less pass yards then rushing yards right now.Â Allen is not supposed to be the S that comes into the box to help stop the run therefore when people are saying he is playing very bad and should not be the starter they are wrong.Â There is no denying the fact that they could be doing more but they are doing a good job helping take away the pass.
It is just my opinion, but if they are stopind the run and generating any kind of pass rush the QB will have to release the ball quicker and thats when the secondary can make more plays. You are right teams dont have to pass and that further proves my point. If the Dline was generating more of a rush the RB's would have to side step them in the backfield allowing the LB's to close the gap and make a play. A little bit of consistant pressure would do damage to the other teams rushing and passing game. I don't know what changes need to be made but something needs to be done and it should start up front. People say that our running and passing game is strugling because the other teams Dline is getting to much pressure so wouldn't it work the same way for the other team?
Well consider this then. Â Why pass the ball when the ground game is drilling the Bucs defense into the ground? Â The Bucs are giving up a very high percentage of passes in terms of completion percentage. Â Therefore, I think if the opposing offense decides to pass (which they usually don't when they have an established run game going), they could be sealing the deal a lot quicker. Â The Bucs are playing from behind the majority of the time. Â Teams usually reduce the amount of pass attempts in that circumstance, in other words. Â The pass defense is skewed by the overwhelmingly bad run defense. Â And that is about as simple as it can get.The Bucs have how many INTs? Â One. Â Not good for a pass defense at all, considering how "good" they are supposed to be in coverage. Â The numbers are skewed bro.Edit: AS for giving up less yards rushing if they generate ANY kind of pressure...maybe. But when the DTs are going hog wild at the QB, they usually let the RBs slip right by them, so you never know.
