Re: interesting tidbits from KFFL
Bruce hasnt done well against tampa primarily because historically, we havent had time to throw and thus, he hasnt had time to get downfield to run his routes. I dont believe it is because their corners have been so great, but they have managed over the years to get pressure with their front four without blitzing much, limiting our ability to run our routes down the field.
As for faulk, his averages vs. tampa may be low, but he had one of the single greatest performances in nfl history in his 4 td monday night game vs. tampa.
