Harry Douglas Says Bucs Didn’t Focus On HimOctober 24th, 2013
Trailing 17-7 in the second quarter Sunday, Darrelle Revis was playing zone defense on the right side of the Bucs defense. Falcons top healthy receiver Harry Douglas, thanks to injuries to Roddy White and Julio Jones, was on the opposite side of the field beating rookie Johnthan Banks for the game-winning touchdown.
Douglas was interviewed by Mike Florio on NBC Sports’ ProFootballTalk Live this afternoon and clearly stated that the Bucs didn’t focus on stopping him throughout the game. Douglas, an emerging hero in Atlanta, said he expects more attention in future games after his career day against Tampa Bay.
Douglas said the Falcons simply did a great job being patient and finding the holes in the Bucs’ defense.
Interestingly, on another bomb to Douglas with Leonard Johnson covering him, Douglas said he believed the play call was a no-call — just Matt Ryan walking up to the line of scrimmage and calling a play after he saw the Bucs’ defense.
