Derrick Ward Press Conference

March 4th, 2009 has the press conference of Derrick Ward’s introduction to the Tampa Bay area in its entirety. Joe also has the link here.

Joe has gone on record that he likes this move a lot. Provided Luke McCown truly is the starting quarterback, a backfield of Ward and Earnest Graham will certainly keep opposing defenses at worst, honest.

Just on face value, Joe wouldn’t be suprised if defenses initially pack everyone in and dare McCown to throw. With Antonio Bryant and Sgt. Winslow (provided he can suit up), McCown should have open target to throw to.

In short, currently, McCown has considerable protection: good running backs, good receivers and a potentially great offensive line.
