Josh Johnson Not Exactly GiddyOctober 11th, 2009
Though he appeared to be much more comfortable and productive than he did in his first start at Washington, Bucs quarterback Josh Johnson was not a happy camper after the game. Sure, one can point to the lopsided loss. Others obviously, and with merit, will point to his three interceptions.
Either way, Johnson, speaking on the Bucs radio network after the game, was not pleased.
“From an offensive standpoint, it was a physical game,” Johnson said. “We handled it well in the first half. We thought we were going to soften them up but we were not able to capitalize.
“I am very disappointed in myself with all of those turnovers, especially when I had chances to put points on the board.”
“You have to give [Philadelphia] credit. They forced us to throw how. I knew I would be under pressure. They made the plays in a very a very physical game.
It’s tough when you have bad breaks like I had. It’s very disappointing. I have to watch the film and see where we can do better.”
Johnson also raved about the play of Kellen Winslow, Jr., who had his best game as a Bucs tight end.
“He’s great. He’s a natural matchup problem,” Johnson said. “That is the luxury of having a Kellen Winslow against a nickle corner. He can physically beat them up and that’s what he did.”
Johnson feels a win coming on.
“We have yet to play a complete game, offense and defense and special teams,” Johnson said. “Once we do that, we will win. It’s just a matter of putting it all together.”
