“We Were Seeing Different Things”November 7th, 2012
Even a casual football fan can see how incredibly explosive the Bucs offense has been the past four games.
So what changed?
Mike Williams answered that question on the Buccaneers Radio Network on WDAE-AM 620 Monday night. And there was no magic involved. Williams said time in the new system has caused the transformation.
“We started slow because we had to get the offense. There are a lot of adjustments in this offense,” Williams said. “We gotta read off zone coverages, man-to-man coverages, and we have different routes depending on what the coverage is. And I think we was like kinda not on the same page. We were seeing different things, but I think now we’re all starting to see the same things. Everything looking the same to us, the offense starting to get a lot familiar. We all can play any position now as a receivers corps, so it’s starting to be like something good to see.”
Williams went on to go deeper into how versatile the Bucs’ receivers are and how the system demands it.
Also, Williams admitted that he always calls out “showtime,” whenever he catches a ball. Sort of call to himself to take it to the house every time.
Of course, those who know Mike Williams know he’s a basketball junkie and a former hoops walk-on Syracuse University. So in that spirit, Joe presents some old school “showtime.” (If you’re short on time, pick up the video at 2:30)
