On this episode of the Real Bucs Talk Podcast the guys preview the Pewter Pirates Super Wild Card Weekend matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles.
When these two teams met the first time, the Buccaneers offensive line was fairly new to their jobs. Tristan Wirfs was making his third start at left tackle, Luke Goedeke was making his fourth start at right tackle, and rookie Cody Mauch was making his third ever NFL start after switching positions from tackle in college to guard in the pros.
The growth and experience of these three players is incredibly valuable. It very well could be the difference in this game.
Todd Bowles will once again need to be in his bag of tricks for this game. Various pressure looks, or simulated pressure looks can rattle Hurts and affect his timing and progressions. Even if the Bucs can’t consistently break through a good Eagles offensive line, just increasing Hurts’ internal clock will make a big difference in this game. Blitzing early and often will be critical.
