Pass Rush Seems to Still Be Concern for the Bucs

The Tampa Tribune seems to be concerned with the lack of a pass rush for the Bucs so far:

The Bucs didn’t rush the passer with much success in 2008 and they are counting on Gaines Adams to lead the way at right DE. The other end, Jimmy Wilkerson, has never been a full-time starter and DTs Chris Hovan and Ryan Sims are run-pluggers hardly known for collapsing the pocket.

New defensive coordinator Jim Bates, fiery and crafty, will need to be at his creative best this fall. Look for the Bucs to blitz more, and from more angles, than you’re used to seeing in Monte Kiffin’s scheme.

The days of Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice are long gone. The Bucs can no longer rely on the front four to supply enough of a rush to drop seven defenders into coverage.
