The linebacker, now playing on the strong side, produced two sacks and a hurry on 31 plays with the first-team defense, while also blowing up tight end Anthony Fasano on one play then causing tackle Vernon Carey to jump offsides by stunting.
You read that correctly. Jason Taylor made Anthony Fasano explode. The best part is that this scheme is new to JT, yet he's showing the coaches that he's well into knowing it. And Joey Porter is excited to have 99 lining up on the other side, to wreak havoc with him on a weekly basis. That, after all, was what Peezy envisioned when he first signed with the Fins two seasons ago. Instead, Dom Capers was named the defensive coordinator and he proceeded to take a giant shit on the promise of those two being an awesome one-two punch. Get fucked by an emu, Dom Capers.
Some are saying that the job is still Matt Roth's to lose. That might be the case. But I'm not betting against JT. Because doing that would be dumb. Like tea bagging a sleeping bear in the woods, you ask? Yes, like that.
