Davin Joseph Wants To Maul People TooAugust 2nd, 2012
Yesterday, new Bucs left guard Carl Nicks said he wants to maul opposing defensive lineman. Joe caught up with fellow Bucs guard Davin Joseph today. He too echoed Nicks’ feelings for guys lining up across the line of scrimmage from him.
JoeBucsFan: Carl Nicks said he wants to maul people to establish a running game. Is that sort of the mentality of the offensive line this season?
Davin Joseph: Definitely. We are out here working hard to finish guys in the run game, working hard to finish guys in the passing game, working hard to be the most physical line we can be. Yeah, all of that applies.
Joe: Tell me how that physical play in the run game applies to blocking on pass plays.
Joseph: When you are able to be physical in the run game, it opens up your entire offense, really. It allows you to be so much more versatile once you get the run game going, especially when you have guys like LeGarrette who are home run hitters. You can do just about anything you want to.
Joe: So you agree with Carl Nicks that seeing a guy on his back motivates the entire line?
Joseph: Of course. Any time you can flat-back a guy it gets the juices going even more.
