Mike Williams For Mayor

August 14th, 2010

williamstallJoe’s a Bucs fan like everyone visiting these here pages.

Hence the name JoeBucsFan.com.

So Joe can respectfully say that if you didn’t find hope filling your heart and mind when Mike Williams caught that first-quarter bomb from Josh Freeman — a tough catch with Vontae Davis in his face — then you need to turn in you Bucs fan card.

It’s really that simple.

Freeman was sharp. Williams put some good stuff on film.

And as the great Antonio Bryant likes to say, “Film don’t lie.”

    Yep Mr. Williams looks good in practice AND a game.

    Good for him, looks like a very good draft choice for sure.


    I have “Gymnastics” and “Entertainment Tonight” on my DVR right now.

    First time for everything…

    Really impressed with Williams body control. The kid really seems to have some game.

    Remember these two things:

    1) The NFL NEVER blacks out road games. Never have, never will.

    2) Out House Networks’ DVR listings do not supercede binding contracts from two separate entities.

    That was an exciting play, the offense looked sharp in the first quarter, then the 2nd team came in, Clayton dropped pass, ward looked terrible, josh johnson looked like Willy Beamon in his first game, ugh. But that TD drive early was what i was looking for.

  6. BamBamBuc Says:

    Now if we can just get Benn to catch up to Williams, we’ll be in good shape….

  7. Mr. Lucky Says:

    Did you notice that after Williams made that catch he was pleading with the ref to make the call? That’s a veteran move. Williams fought for position and made that play.

    In addition Freeman noticed how Williams made the break and the touch on that pass was a thing of beauty!!!

    As good as Mike Williams looks , Arrelious Benn looks just as bad.

    Holy sh*t is he gonna be a bust. He looks like the second coming of Dexter jackson, only slower….

  9. eric Says:


    Too early for a bust, but his footwork does look slow. When I went to practice the difference between him and Williams in that regard was like night and day.

    So Williams is one starter, and stroughter. Whose next? Didn’t see anybody else step forward, except maybe Broks till he dropped it. Clayton damn near fumbled as usual.

  10. troxell8t8 Says:

    Hopefully, Stovall isn’t hurt too bad. I think Preston Parker has a decent shot at the roster.


    Tough catch for the rookie in the rain, tight roping the sideline and shaking off some man to man coverage. That catch and The Franchise’s throw got me all jacked up. Caddilac and Sgt. Stroughter have me excited about the season too.

  12. BamBamBuc Says:

    I’m thinking Williams, Stroughter… then Stovall and Brown…. with Benn coming along slowly, but eventually stepping in.

  13. Patrick Says:

    I remember earlier in the game when Brown ran a good route and appeared to be open downfield, but Johnson threw the ball behind him and it was picked off.

  14. Gary Says:

    Benn is invisible out there which is brutal considering where we drafted him (2nd round). He still has lots of time to redeem himself but if this guy can’t ascend past Stovall on the depth chart, that’s brutal.

    WR Mike Williams continues to impress.

    Clayton/Ward/Brown all looked horrible tonight. At this rate, they’re making it pretty easy for Dominik to consider cutting them.

    give benn some time fellas. it takes most receivers 3 years to really hit thier stride. one preseason game does not make a bust, especially considering how jj played behind the 2nd string o-line.

  16. Trguy12 Says:

    I didn’t think Benn got much of a look.
    He had the corner beat on the one deep pass but it was
    overthrown while Williams got a perfect pass from Freeman.
    The guy needs chances so we can get a better look at him.

  17. BamBamBuc Says:

    I think it was actually beneficial to play Benn with the 2nd team. he got more field time than the starters, and that’s what he needed. I figure we’ll see much more rapid improvement from him the more field time he sees. It might be a good idea to work him with 2nd team again next week, then maybe see if he can go 1st team in week 3 (when they usually play the first half). That would be plenty of snaps for Benn, and we should see him right up there with Williams/Stroughter by week 1.

    And as much as I loved the Williams catch, it was his only catch of the game. I’d like to see him get more time as well, I want to see more than one catch from him. I want to see if he knows how to sit between zones when it’s not one-on-one coverage.

  18. Jesse Says:

    Best thing about the play is that, according to Freeman, Davis was talking trash to the bucs before the game. Then he gets owned. That, my friends is letting Football do the talking.

  19. Greg Says:

    Joe, what does Antonio Bryant know about film? He hasn’t been in ANY this year!! Nice to see the Bucs screwed that one up letting Bryant go huh???

  20. Greg Says:

    If only we could get JJ to puke before taking his first snap of the game–now that would be worth the price of admission!!!
