Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and current Coordinator of Pro Scouting, Doug Williams was chatting on ESPN.com Friday evening from Atlanta. Where he is scheduled to attend the Black College Hall of Fame ceremonies took the time to answer a few questions for fans.
Q: You explored a couple coaching options recently before deciding to stay in the Tampa Bay front office. Why did the Tampa job appeal to you more at this point? Is coaching something you definitely want to get back into?
A: First of all, you have to have a job to go to. I had a chance to interview for the University of South Florida job. I talked to Mark Dominick that I was going to interview. It’s not that I like to do it. I’ll be doing it again this year.
Q: What player reminds you of you?
A: We have a young kid, Josh Freeman. The guy that we have here in Tampa, reminds me a lot of me from the stand point that he’s oblivious to the rush. He hangs on to the ball. He can take a lickin’ and get back up and do his job.
To say Josh Freeman is oblivious to the rush is an understatement, in a game last season he starred down three defenders launching themselves at him. He somehow managed to bounce off all three and scramble to buy extra time.
While he has some uncanny unflappability to his game, his raw skills have never been in question. Its his decision making and accuracy that have been questioned and needs major work.
