Johnson Takes Blame For Critical Third Down Call

October 4th, 2009

Quarterback Josh Johnson rolled left and looked more part of a desperate, broken play than anything scripted on 3rd-and-goal.

Raheem The Dream claimed on the Buccaneers Radio Network it was a good call: it was a double-option, so Raheem The Dream said.

What were the two options, fail or mistake?

Johnson took the blame for the play, as he said on the Buccaneers Radio Network after the game.

“On the roll to the left, I tried to throw a pass to Jerramy Stevens hoping they would bite on the run,” Johnson said. But the Redskins didn’t.

“I had no one open,” Johnson said. “I was just trying to run one in if I could.”

On the fumble that ended the game, Johnson credited the Redskins.

“Their defense just made a good play,” Johnson said. “It happens. It happens. It’s unfortunate, but it happens. We all take responsibility for that. It’s a team game.”

    JJ did damn good for his first Pro Start. He kept his poise throughout and they were after him hard. The O line has some issue but the Tight Ends can’t block, won’t block and rarely get separation.
