Who is more responsible for the Bucs’ deficiency in defending the pass?
A lack of pass rush. Receivers will always work their way open and any quarterback, if given the time, will find them. If the Bucs could get a consistent push up the middle they would disrupt more plays.
The defensive backs. The Bucs defensive secondary has been in disarray all season and the injuries are mounting up, leading to a depleted unit without a lot of talent.
