Bucs Ran 40 Scripted 7-on-7 Plays

June 29th, 2011

So what the heck are the Bucs actually doing on the field at the IMG Academies?

Well, aside from the obvious drills and position work, Josh Freeman said they ran “40 scripted 7-on-7” plays yesterday. And some were repeated if they didn’t go well, so he told the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig, on WDAE-AM 620 Tuesday afternoon.

Among the other interesting nuggets Freeman shared, were that some guys were already complaining about two-a-day practices. No surprise there.

Freeman said today the Bucs will do some red zone work. And Freeman said while Raheem Morris might believe second-year players will be most affected by missing OTAs, he’s not worried.

Freeman said he and his soon to be second year offensive players have put in so much work that he believes they’ll be ready to roll at a high level.

Freeman, who’s not one to single out players, said Mike Williams looks like “a complete animal” while referencing his conditioning and sharpness.

Joe loved the sound of that. The more Joe thinks about it, the more Joe’s realizing how critical Williams is to the offense. The Bucs can’t afford to have him take even a quarter step back.

    Like all of them, they all have something to prove and prove they will.

    Joe, where is Rhonde and with new line coaches on both sides don’t you think they all will benefit?

    How beautiful does it sound when Free describes Mike as a complete animal! He cannot have any kind of sophmore slump this year.

    Its so good to be talking about players at camp working to get better and get reps versus insignificant free agents that may not return. I am also glad to hear about Mike Williams looking focused and crisp because it shows how much he cares.
