Faine On Okam, “Stabbing Raheem In The Back”December 17th, 2010
Chatty, injured center Jeff Faine took a break from discussing Josh Freeman’s Taco Bell obsession yesterday to chime in on a variety of other Bucs stuff.
Speaking on The Jeff Faine Show on 1010 AM, the Bucs captain warned that Raheem Morris’ loose leash on the team won’t last forever the way things are going.
“Guys are stabbing Raheem in the back,” Faine said, regarding Bucs’ off-the-field incidents.
Faine said Raheem gives the team “a lot of leeway” but “it’s going to come to a point where he’s not going to do that anymore.”
On manbeast defensive tackle Frank Okam, who is off the practice squad and will be wearing a helmet Sunday, Faine said the 6-5, 350-pounder is very strong. “I’ve seen him in the weight room repping over 500 pounds [on the bench press].”
Faine said Okam needs polish to his game but works hard. Faine talked about how intensely the young d-lineman practice and that has made the offensive line better. Of Faine’s first practice back after a quad injury, “I was like, man, that was like playing in a real game.”
