Call Carl Nicks “The Mauler”August 1st, 2012
Now Joe knows that Bucs fans would have a hard time choosing between an intimate evening with Rachel Watson and a punishing running game where defenders are put on their backs time and again by a physical offensive line.
Well, Joe has just the guy for you and his name is Carl Nicks. The studly offensive guard nearly drooled over the thought of punishing defenders the way Joe’s good friend Justin Pawlowski salivates over a Buffalo chicken tender sub at Publix.
Nicks explained to the Tampa Bay pen and mic club after practice this morning how he gets off on running the ball.
“The first thing, running the ball gets the defensive line tired and it helps your pass protection,” Nicks said. “Another thing is, knocking a guy down and watching him get up and seeing the tiredness and the hurt in his eyes, you just thrive on that.
“If I can maul someone every play, that’s what I will do. I’m excited.”
