Derrick Ward DeliversAugust 28th, 2010
He was juking Jacksonville defenders. He was cutting. He was breaking tackles.
His name is Derrick Ward.
Why some might say Ward looked like he was chasing down a scantily clad Kardashian through a crowded Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Barring a shocker of a trade, Joe’s quite certain Ward will be on the Buccaneers come opening day. They need him, assuming there’s more left in his 30-year-old tank.
Ward, playing against the Jaguars’ starters, ripped off 19 yards on four carries, including runs of nine and 12 yards. During the latter he broke three tackles, made three cuts and finished off the run hard.
If Ward were Kareem Huggins, Bucs fans would be out of their minds excited right now.
Huggins, again, didn’t get a shot to line up behind the Bucs’ starting offensive line. As Joe has written through the week, Joe’s just not seeing how the Bucs are that serious about Huggins.
He’s a great kid, but that hasn’t gotten him much of a shot.
