Breakout Game For Benn

December 12th, 2010

You could smell the big time breakout game coming from Arrelious Benn for a few weeks.

In addition to Benn maturing and making some plays, teams were obviously game planning to stop Kellen Winslow and Mike Williams, who seems to be stymied by the mythical rookie wall while Benn is smashing throught it. 

Benn had four catches today for a whopping 122 yards and a 17-yard run on and end around. 

Benn’s living up to all the pre-draft hype about his yards-after-catch ability and physical game. He’s now got 21 catches on the season.

He might be the Bucs’ No. 1 receiver at this point.

    He’s benefiting from being the third priority in coverage, but he’s taking proper advantage. It’s nice to have weapons.

    I love the fact that Benn is coming out now. I honestly don’t think that Mike Williams is hitting his rookie wall. I think teams are strategically double teaming him, because every time I see a pass going to Williams it looks like he has at least 2 defenders on him.

    There have been a couple passes thrown Williams way that I think he should have caught, but I still don’t think that contributes to a rookie wall. All I can say is I can’t wait to see Benn, Williams, Winslow, Stroughter, and Blount running up the middle next year. When was the last time we had an offense where so many contributors we can look at to be explosive. It is going to be awesome.

    Mike Williams isn’t really hitting the rookie wall but his hands seem to be. He is getting targeted and getting open but dropping too many. Im pleasantly surprised to see Benn looking like a legitimate deep threat. Also pleased to see the reverses and WR screens being executed much better. They’ve been running those plays since Benn started getting on the field earlier in the year but they were’nt producing any big gains until the last two weeks or so.

    Not to nitpick Joe, but if ur gonna have a write-up on Benn, it would at least be nice to have a picture of him instead of Mike Williams 😛

    But that aside, Benn is looking great and I’m loving the emerging weapons on the offense. Almost sounds strange to say that about the Bucs. There is a bright future ahead folks.

    I guess trading up in the second round is looking a lot better now, huh?

    Great game Rejus. You get the game ball. that was a touchdown catch and somehow this kid keeps getting robbed.

    Mike Will is hitting a rookie wall (like the balls hitting his hands), which gives Benn the ability to step up and make plays. Don’t forget that Free isn’t getting frustrated with his receivers and keeps making plays! OL will get better and MW and K2 will make plays down the stretch… Lost 2 more starters and an ugly win, but a win all the same.

    If we win another game(and i fully expect to win at least 2), Rah gets coach of the year IMO……GO BUCS

    Didnt i see this same headline a few weeks ago when benn had 1 catch and a td?

    Great coaching by rah today getting hall to drop the pick six, the holder to drop the pat snap, and the kicker to hack the chip shots.

    Get a life Thomas! You would bitch if your ice cream was too cold. Why don’t you just chill out, Monday night will be here soon enough, then you can sit on your couch a turn one out listening to Jon Gruden spew a bunch of BS out of his mouth.

  9. aldo Says:

    with all due respect, but if ur talking about benn, u should put a benn picture

  10. Vince Says:

    I think the picture is in reference to MW hitting the rookie wall…IE, the picture is of the potential TD that MW couldn’t pull in.
