Josh Johnson To Revive Receiver Role?June 3rd, 2010
If the Bucs hadn’t used Josh Johnson as a receiver in practice last year and trotted him out on the field against Buffalo in the flat, Raheem The Dream’s words today might sound like a coach just having fun with reporters or giving opponents something to think about.
Per the Buccaneers’ official Twitter feed, Raheem The Dream said Thursday he envisions Josh Johnson and Josh Freeman scaring defenses at the same time.
Speaking about QBs Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson, Coach just said, “Don’t be surprised if you see them out there playing together” in games.
Joe suspects Raheem The Dream is quite serious. JoeBucsFan.com analyst and former Bucs quarterback Jeff Carlson wrote about ways to use Johnson and Freeman together months ago.
Joe would love to see it in the preseason. Fun to watch, if nothing else. And if the new receivers aren’t up to breakout rookie seasons, the Bucs surely will need all the help they can get.
But offensively, Joe would rather see the Bucs focus more on running the ball effectively, creatively getting everything out of their running backs and grooming their young receivers.
That should be enough to keep Greg Olson very challenged — maybe too challenged.
