We got a familiar face on this episode of the Pewter Nation Podcast as our old pal Trevor Sikkema returns to the show! Trevor is here to break down the Bucs against Chargers and also just talk about how different the Bucs have gotten since he left Tampa.
It’s pretty crazy how the view of the Bucs’ defense has gone. We went from saying constantly that the secondary is going to get beat and the defense could cost them the game, to now it’s a disappointment if they don’t absolutely dominate. That could be the case again for the pass rush facing a rookie quarterback with Justin Herbert. Trevor makes a great point as well that Los Angeles hasn’t score more than 20 points yet this season, so that shouldn’t happen either this week.
The Bucs’ offense is going to be missing some of their top players once again. Chris Godwin is out for this game and Scotty Miller hasn’t practiced either. Does this mean it’s another heavy dose of the tight ends again this week? While the Chargers are injured, too, they have a much better linebacking core than Denver did a week ago. It might not just be time yet for the Bucs’ offense to break out, but it’s coming in a couple weeks. Hear more with us and Trevor in our new episode of the Pewter Nation Podcast.
