Mike Williams Speaks

December 30th, 2012

Mike Williams, left, celebrates his touchdown catch with Tiquan Underwood Sunday.

Mike Williams, who finished four yards short of reaching the 1,000-yard receiving plateau, spoke on the Bucs radio network after the game about the season-ending win over the Dixie Chicks.

“We wanted to go into the offseason with a that bad taste out of our months. You are only as good as your last game and we feel we played our game today.”

On his touchdown catch:

“Usually on that play, it’s a high ball but Josh had to spin away from pressure and I had to get my feet down.”

On Doug Martin’s running:

“I have to give it up for our offensive line. For us to lose two Pro Bowl offensive linemen and still have a 1,000-yard back, that says a lot about of offensive line.”

On his growth this season as a receiver:

“I have to give credit to Vincent Jackson and credit to Mark Dominik for getting him and to [wide receivers] Coach [P.J.] Fleck. He always said I had more in my cup. We had a good offseason together and did OK on offense. I hope this season I can work out with the Western Michigan receivers [Editor’s note: Fleck is now the head coach at Western Michigan]. Part of the reason I had my season was the work I had with Coach Fleck.”

    Was REALLY disappointed he didnt get the 1000. They didnt seem to even look his way after big first half, and on a couple plays he was standing wide open while Freeman was forcing balls to Jax. MWill is a baller, and I think he’s way underrated. Not only does VJax open things up for Will, it works the other way as well. These two are a perfect complement for Josh and his “occassional” inaccurate passes, as they both can adjust to the ball, especially MWill. Dude is extremely valuable part of this offense.

    It’s always good when the QB looks out for his WR’s and makes sure he gets his 1,000 yards.

    Oh, he didn’t? WTF!!

    Great first 3 years as buc IMO, He has some really excellent ball skills and is GREAT at getting 2 feet in inbounds, what a difference V-jack makes..

    Just like the last 7 yards for Peterson didn’t mean anything, the last 4 yards for Williams don’t mean anything. It is 4 yards. 4. Those four yards do not make or break the year for Mike, nor the team.
