Play To “The Strength Of Your Team”October 11th, 2012
Former Bucs quarterback Shaun King, one of only three men to lead the Bucs to the NFC Championship game, says the Bucs should start transitioning to a throw-first offense immediately.
But it’s not because that philosophy is dominant in the NFL, King says, it’s because throwing is the strength of the current Bucs offense. Injuries and film through the first four games reveal it.
“With [Davin] Joseph down and Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams excelling … that’s the strength of your team,” King said this morning on the Ron and Ian Show on WDAE-AM 620.
Sometimes the simplest takes are the best, and Joe likes this one.
The essence of coaching is to get the most out of your talent, and right now there’s clearly trouble in the Bucs running game, as evidenced by the roulette wheel at right guard and a poor yards-per-carry average.
Joe’s still all in favor of pounding LeGarrette Blount and Doug Martin, but the Bucs have to play more to their strengths on the outside.
