Dangerous Mike Williams

October 14th, 2012

Who’s the No. 1 receiver on the Buccaneers?

Vincent Jackson?

Not today.

It was Mike Williams showcasing his trademark elite body control and yards-after-catch ability against the Chiefs. He burned Chiefs cornerback Stanford Routt for a 62-yard strike. He burned Brandon Flowers, too, who even had to resort to holding Williams to slow him down. And that was just the first half, after which Williams had three catches for 103 yards.

Williams finished his day with four catches for 113 yards, and he’s now averaging more than 22 yards a catch on the season.

The Bucs have weapons. Joe was pleased to see them in use early today.

    MW is a stud…good to see him playing like he used to….Freeman looked good..wish there was a way to get Blount more involved…

    Loved seeing VJ, MW and Underwood showing their stuff today… but where was Benn? Seeing what VJ and MW were doing, I would have thought Benn would have a field day out there.

    Beyond that, Blount is STILL the real deal. He was picking up blitzes, making good reads on run plays, doing exactly what we expect of him. Guy needs more touches. Martin is alright, dropped a few passes (his specialty???), broke a good run or two, but Blount is a beast.

    David and Barron should be 1-2 on the DROY voting!!!

    If Greg Schiano was a fantasy football player, he would be yelling at himself for not playing Blount more.

    Martin 13 points on 13 carries 76 yards 2 rec 55 yards

    Blount 11 points on 7 carries 58 yards 1 TD.

    Blount is a huge weapon waiting to be unleashed. I like Martin but I really do see him complementing Blount than the other way around.

    And it’s great to see our WRs playing good today, Underwood proved his value, Jackson getting it done, and Williams getting back to form. Benn?????

    Blount was the only running back with a TD. What do you mean get him more involved? Stop your complaining. Celebrate the victory, a Blowout even!

  5. BUCTIME Says:


    Benn was doing kick return. We did not need to do anything differently. Quit finding things to complain about

  6. gotbbucs Says:

    At this point, the only way Benn will see the field is if there’s an injury. They would rather split Martin and Lorig out wide than put Benn out there. As far as I can see, he has no business returning kicks either.

    @ buctime where do you get complaining from…”wish there was a way to get blount more involved” smh

  8. raphael Says:

    @buctime quit being a moron

  9. BUCTIME Says:

    your complaining because you are still trying to find something wrong or that could have been done differently even in a blowout.

  10. Bobby Says:

    When the defense is tired Blount is going to be used more than Martin. Martin will be used more in the early parts of the game to soften up the defense.

  11. Sambizle Says:

    I agree with your complaining assessment. LeGarrette “Tippy-Toes” Blount got the yards very late in a hot stadium, KC was done by then.

    The guy they need to keep involved in the gameplan is eraserhead Underdog the kidd makes Plays kidd and play Albert made mention of his 80’s retro hightop fade during the game that catch changed the direction of the game

    I really hope they can apply a similar game plan (but earlier on) against the Saints next week. Freeman had some bad throws (all QB’s do) but he is reaaly, really good when they let him open it up especially 1 on 1 coverage with any of our receivers we should be good.
