The defensive line has as many holes in it as the offensive line. Before the Buccaneers game, opposing teams rushed 210 times for 841 yards for a 4.0 yards/carry average. The Buccaneers worsened that statistic gaining 178 rushing yards on 33 carries for a 5.4 yards/carry average. Pete Carroll said in his postgame comments to the media that the defense seemed to focus more on stripping the ball than stopping the running back on first hit. He definitely got that right.
