“I Was Able To Step On His Toes”

September 16th, 2019

If you’re keeping score at home, Chris Godwin is on pace for 98 catches, 1,392 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.

So it’s no surprise Godwin was invited on SiriusXM NFL Radio following the Bucs’ victory against the Panthers.

In typical Godwin fashion, he was all business on the radio, little personality or fluff.

Godwin talked about how the Bucs have a fighting and scrappy team this season and their effort and physicality Thursday night was worthy of praise. But it was “not a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination,” Godwin said, noting Bruce Arians was all about the Friday corrections while reviewing film.

On his touchdown against Carolina, Godwin talked about beating cornerback Dontee Jackson on the post route. “I was able to step on his toes and to buy a little bit of time to buy separation for Jameis.” (Joe wonders whether stepping on toes is thing?)

On Jameis Winston, Godwin says pressure doesn’t seem to affect him because he is the same hard competitor on every single play.

On Arians, Godwin said he is unique for his extreme level of passion “and you can tell he genuinely wants his best for all his players … and for the football to mean something to them.”

    I was glad we drafted him.
    At Penn State, he singlehandidly beat my Michigan Wolverines, his last season.
    LOL, I hated him then

    Love Godwin. Just need a 3rd to complement him and Evan’s. Perriman isn’t it. Never has been. Need to draw more plays up for Brate maybe even move him into the slot and leave Godwin and Evan’s on the outside. I think with those 3 we will have our Keyshawn, McKardell and Joe Jurevicious trio back in Tampa. GO BUCS!!

    All Godwin (along with the running game) is doing is opening up this offense. Teams will soon learn if you roll coverage to ME13 Godwin will eat you alive. The strong running game, especially in the red zone (being able to score on a 16 yard run) will open things up. This offense is still new, as the season continues it should begin to open up, keeping defenses guessing just like opposing offenses continuously guess against our D. BEAT THE GIANTS, GO BUCS!!!

    Great draft pick, great play by him so far this season, and only going to get better.

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Perriman might just need to settle in.

  9. DB55 Says:


    Emmanuel hall would have been a great #3 but he got cut presumably due to injury but that kid is a burner and has good hands.

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Give Perriman another game or two…..we have all had WRs & TEs who dropped passes…..only to recover and have respectable seasons.

    I’m quite sure he will be limited if he doesn’t produce.

    I still can’t get over ZERO targets to OJ vs Carolina….

    I think BoBo will have 1st chance an Crack at slot an 3rd Reciever role he has speed an agility seen Thursday night on his big play punt return that hit called back because of flag

  12. Says:

    Stepping on toes is just a figure of speech folks. Common football vernacular. He got up on him tight then was able to make a clean(er) break to the post because of it.

  13. LordCornelius Says:

    Thank god Licht thought signing Perriman was worth a future mid round draft pick. Along with a punter. Great foresight and management of resources.

    GO BUCS!

  14. Cobraboy Says:

    Evans is drawing doubles, getting Godwin open.

  15. ITS ABOUT TIME !! Says:

    keep walking the walk, your actions speak loud…

  16. unbelievable Says:

    Lord Corn I think you’re misinformed, we did not trade any future picks for Perriman, he was a free agent.

  17. AwShbucs Says:


    He’s talking about the comp picks we lost out on from making those signings.

  18. Isaac haggins Says:

    I’m glad to see he finally ran a route and created separation because that is the one thing he is missing !!! I would be willing to bet Desean Jackson s skills transferred to that route !!! Say what you want about Desean but the man has some of the best feet and technique in the game and I believe Godwin is along with better coaching perhaps benefitting and improving the very weak part of his game !! Great to See and the results make it much much easier for Winston !!!

  19. unbelievable Says:


    ah, I hear ya. Comp picks are a fickle thing anyways, there’s no guarantees.

    Anyways, I’d like to see him in more than 2 games before I write it off as a waste. He had amazing hands in college. No reason he shouldn’t be able to make some catches in the NFL.

  20. orlbucfan Says:

    Ungodly Godwin has one one of my faves since he was drafted. He’s all business on and off the field. BTW, Penn State is a excellent academic institution so he’ll be set after his NFL days are over.

  21. Slugglife Says:

    Wait, are you saying us hillbilly racists actually love Godwin?

    How could that be?

  22. Slugglife Says:

    As we all clamor for an explanation from Webster.

  23. Slugglife Says:

    Apparently you cant use TMAX or Webster now wothout goimg to moderation.

    Hey Joe, how about an article showing your loyal customers exactly which words send a comment to moderation.

    Thanks in advance as this goes to moderation.

    DJax was a diva who threw tantrums when he didn’t get his way. Team cancer who shut off the effort when pissed. Perriman at least tries. Hopefully he will get in sync. DJax missed the fowlgoon game due to a bad ankle.
