Todd Bowles on the Defensive Effort Against San Francisco
Yesterday, Defensive Coordinator Todd Bowles held a press conference with the media. Below is what he had to say about what stood out from the Defense against the 49ers via Buccaneers.com:
“The biggest thing was the effort – we had 11 guys getting to the ball. We made some mistakes, but they covered it up by the effort they showed and that was the biggest thing.”
The Defensive effort in the game was huge. They only gave up 256 yards of total Offense which ranks 6th in the NFL at the moment. Lots of flashes of great plays including stuffing the run in the middle and Vernon Hargreaves III pick 6. The team is fast and smart but like Bowles said the mistakes and penalties got covered up by their effort. Here’s to the Defense going off against Cam Newton and the Panthers on Thursday.
