TAMPA, Fla. -- In case you’re wondering why the Bucs just selected defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, here’s a reminder from our friends at ESPN Stats & Information.

Tampa Bay allowed 4.9 yards per rush on rushes up the middle in 2009, worst in the league by a wide margin. Tampa Bay was also last in the league in total rushing defense (158.2 YPG allowed). On 292 rushes up the middle, the Bucs allowed 1,422 yards.

Tennessee allowed 4.5 yards up the middle to finish No. 31 and Kansas City was No. 30 at 4.4 yards.
