Bucs Position Coaches Answer Your Tweets

Posted Jan 29, 2014

The Bucs position coaches were made available to the media on Wednesday. We asked for your questions on twitter, and here are the coaches’ responses.

Cornerbacks Coach Gill Byrd said the defense is called “Tampa 2”, but that doesn’t mean they don’t run multiple defensive looks. Revis is very talented and can play any defense they call.
Asst. O-Line Coach Matt Wiegand said this is a veteran heavy group…they have seen it all and they can do it all. He is very excited to work with them.
Safeties Coach Mikal Smith stressed the importance of both Goldson and Barron being able to play both Strong Safety and Free Safety. Different situations may call for different lineups, or one may have to fill in for the other. Both are capable of playing either spot at a high level.
Defensive Quality Control Coach Dave Borgonzi stressed the importance of creating takeaways. Also, not just stopping at the takeaway, but turning it into defensive touchdowns.
Coach Embree sees Wright having continued success at tight end for the Bucs. He said he will look to have Wright put on some weight, but not so much that it sacrifices his athleticism which is his strength at the position.
Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach Joe Vaughn says the players are lifting about four times a week during the offseason. In-season they lift at least twice a week.
