Sunday Bucs Fodder

by Staff Report on October 17, 2010

Freeman calm under pressure

With Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Williams ailing with what head coach Raheem Morris described as a ‘little foot issue” this week. The Bucs passing game might be channeled through tight end KellenWinslow, who leads all pass catchers with 11 third down catch conversions. Williams who practiced Friday, is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision. Although Williams is listed as questionable Morris sounded confident he would play reports Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.

Pat Yasinskas, of ESPN.com in a recent chat with readers of his NFC South Blog was asked about the development of head coach Raheem Morris in year two of the massive rebuilding project.  After steaming out of the gates to a 3-1 record, the former local Bucs scribe, believes Morris’ job is already secure, unless of course the Bucs fall totally on their face.

Yasinskas also wrote in his “Final Word” post that he thinks the process of winning started back in the offseason and preseason when the Bucs unloaded Antonio Bryant and Derrick Ward. Stating that Bryant and Ward, were not good locker-room guys.

Morris matches wits with Saints Payton, feels like it’s a personal attack if Brees throws for a ton of yardage.

Quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt thinks Josh Freeman is cold as ice in pressure packed situations telling Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times that “As the pressure builds, [Freeman’s] blood pressure drops.”
