“Second-year defensive tackle Marcus Tubbs continued to impress, consistently busting through double-teams and is feeling good about what this season brings as opposed to a disappointing rookie season as a first round pick.
“Well, that is good,” Holmgren said. “He should feel that way because last year was a bad year for him and I love the guy. But he did come in camp in better shape. He is a talented man. Now he has to stay with it and prove that he is worth at where we picked him.
“I believe he is. It's like everything else we're going to do this year. He's no different, let’s not talk it out. Let’s just do it and show us.”
So could Tubbs finally be living up to the potential that he was drafted for in the first place? Hopefully so. I happen to think that this guy has tremendous upside.
Could he be the answer to the pass rush we have been looking for? Possibly. If he is able to provide pressure up the middle, it will certainly help the players on the edge by flushing the QB out. Also, if he can draw the double team, that leaves Wistrom, Fisher and Cochran with less to deal with.
Go git 'em, Tubbsy!
