It was 1990, Fred Bruney was the defensive coordinator and the Bucs were running off the field after losing to the Jets 16-14. That was the last time Bucs walked off the field a 3-4 defense. Next year the late great Floyd Peters was installed as Bucs DC and the franchise has been a 4-3 ever since… through the immortal Rusty Tillman, and some guy named M.Kiffin… until now.
New DC Todd Bowles has installed a 3-4, But if you take a closer look at the formation… look at those two outside linebackers that will be rushing when time calls for it: Carl Nassib and Noah Spence. Those are DE edge rushers!
Thats one defensive lineman for each Offensive Lineman, that can lead to a lot of sacks for Bucs Defense, or at least pressures, hurries, etc.
And then J.P.P. returns!
