August 14th, 2010

stroughter 0814Second year-receiver Sammie Stroughter, who caught the Bucs first touchdown 2010, had a chance to chat on the Buccaneers Radio Network following the game.

“I felt good. We were tired of beating each other up [in practice]. Got to face some live bullets tonight. Made a lot of mistakes in the red zone but we will have to go look at that and study,” Stroughter said.

“The touchdown, that’s Josh being Josh. He is a big boy and is able to make plays. That’s the talent he has. He threw a dart and I just did the rest. That’s [Freeman’s] playmaking ability.

“I was the third read. It was a nice progression from Josh. He read that really, really well. He checked down from his primary. That’s Josh being Josh and making a play. It’s great to see that leadership quality.

“No, no, no… you could sense that [leadership] in the OTAs, the sense of urgency and leadership qualities. The sky is the limit with him He has all the talent in the world. I’m blessed to play with a guy like that.

“I’m not just happy being here. I want to use my abilities to take over. I want that on my shoulders. I embrace that. I hope we can continue to grow as a team.”

    I saw Sammie’s college tapes and knew we had a steal when we drafted him. He is a quality WR.

    I just like the way these young guys are working together, growing together, and sticking by each other. They really seem to want to go out and prove people wrong about them and their youth. Keep it up, Sammie.
