In a column penned by Anwar S. Richardson, of the Tampa Tribune. Deep within the bowels of One Buc Place, the finger pointing has begun. Not from one, but from two offensive players. Both Cadillac Williams an inspirational leader and Pro-bowler Davin Joseph have publicly voiced their displeasure over the teams 0-dash-4 start and have begun pointing fingers at teammates. So startling, are the remarks, that it would indicate a fractured offensive unit.
“The chemistry on this team (is the problem),” Williams said. “Our offense, we’re not playing as one. Until everybody gets on one page, until everybody buys into doing their job, that’s when you are going to see things explode.”
“If you look at that (Dallas) game, we had our starting center in there,” guard Davin Joseph said. “Not an excuse, but we need to be able to mesh better. We need to be able to work better. We need to have communication.
“When you take the brains out of anything, Jeff being the brain of our offensive line, it’s going to take us a while to get used to the new brain. We need to be able to mesh together and work with (Mahan) and be able to complement each other a lot better than we have been.” Source: Tampa Tribune
The lack of chemistry, brains, and communication for an offensive unit is the kiss of death, which through the better part of the past three games sounds about right. But for players not to have bought in, is more revealing then some might think, could this have been the main reason the team fired Jeff Jagodzinski, becuase players just were not buying in? Or is this an indictment towards current offensive coordinator Greg Olson and his reversion back to a Jon Gruden style of playbook.
