Honestly answer this question.. . Do you feel confident in our secondary to play man to man this year while having success doing it? We are a really good zone coverage defense, but some quarterbacks lick their chops when they see zone. It looked great against the Cheifs. When we played some others it got destroyed.
This season is so important because this is the last year they’re all on their rookie deals. Davis, SMB, Dean, Winfield, Whitehead and Edwards combined cap hit is $11.1M. That’s insane positional value.
Feeling very confident in the development of our secondary everyone showed up when called on. Guys like Dean and SMB displayed good talent for young players although I would like to keep an eye on Dean injury history. Finally have a complete defense I’m very excited for the upcoming season.
Given how the secondary played late in the season and during the playoff run, and they get a more normal preseason prep this season, I feel we can expect excellence from them. But as DEBUCS points out, you still need pressure on the QB, goes hand in hand with successful secondary play.
Chiefs assumed the young guys on the Bucs backend could play disciplined ball with C2. So, they were looking for the home run killshot on every play to turn momentum. But they ran out of time and their defense couldn’t slow down the Bucs offense.
Bills put up 12 points in the first half vs the Chiefs 21.
At that point the Chiefs could play dink and dunk to a win as they had a lead and the Bills were not aggressive enough on offense. Bills failed to score a TD in Q2 and Q3.
