Pass rush is still missing in action for most part
I know the stat sheet says the Cardinals had two sacks of Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston on Sunday. One sack for Markus Golden and one for Chandler Jones. Both are linebackers. Where are the defensive linemen?
Most of the afternoon the Cardinals could not create any kind of pass rush. They allowed Winston to take his time.
We need to see more from Calais Campbell (although he did get hurt during the game Sunday), Ed Stinson, and Josh Mauro. Injuries kept Frostee Rucker and Robert Nkemdiche out last Sunday.
This is a problem though that was supposed to be corrected. It doesn’t seem to be yet. The season is still young but all of these games count.
If the Cardinals are not able to create any kind of pass rush, it will likely cost them a game or two down the road. Winston made mistakes on Sunday but he had time to make them for the most part.
