The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are averaging 3.3 yards per carry through two games on the ground. The offensive line which was considered a strength, of the team this off-season, has been inconsistent at best. However, the Bucs are 2-0 and offensive coordinator Greg Olson has shown a renewed commitment to stick with the run even when yardage has been hard to come by.
Carnell Williams, who is in the final year of his contract and fully entrenched as the starter talked to Roy Cummings, of the Tampa Tribune and pointed the finger at himself as to indicate he wasn’t doing all he could,to help jump start the Bucs ground game.
“We’ll get it done, I know that for a fact,” said Williams, who has run 49 times for 126 yards (a 2.6-yard average). “We just have to be better with our execution. We need to man up as a whole. I mean, maybe I need to break more tackles.
“But no matter what, things are going to get better. We just have to stay confident and not start pointing fingers at each other.”
Its admirable, that a player who through two game has been hit regularly in the backfield, even before he can take a step. Would look in the mirror and place the blame on his own performance rather then the inability of his line mates to sustain blocks and open up holes. It shows a level of maturity on Williams part by not throwing his teammates under the bus.
