That has been the style that Monte Kiffin and his Tampa 2 scheme has used for years but this year we've been blitzing alot because our D-Line didn't show up until recently. (Thankfully)
We can do both very well, which makes us even more dangerous. If the Bucs offense can post a 10-14 point lead by halftime or third quarter, the defense we have this season is unbeatable as long as the offense can get some late game 1st downs. We can't rely on our defense to stop every drive in the second half without getting some help from our offense. No team can.
We used to be able to rely on our defense back in the day like that but times have changed. We don't have numerous HOF type guys like Sapp, Rice, Quarles and Lynch anymore to go along with Barber and Brooks.
