One of the few encouraging things that came out of the season-opening loss to the Jets was that the Bucs recorded five sacks. Four of them came from linebackers, which shows that defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan isn’t afraid to blitz. He’ll need to do some of that against the Saints.
But the Bucs really need to bring a pass rush from their front four. New Orleans builds its lines from the inside out, so I wouldn’t count on defensive tackle Gerald McCoy having much success as a pass-rusher. But the Saints are a little shaky with Zach Strief starting at right tackle and Charles Brown at left tackle.
