Bucs Beat

Hey, Mike Williams: Pay attention!



So, you think you had fun watching Bucs running back Doug Martin zig and zag against the Vikings?

Well, receiver Mike Williams had a better seat than most. And he thoroughly enjoyed the view from where he watched Martin’s 64-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter – just across the field from the play.

“On that screen, I was on the other side, and when he caught it, it was like magic happening right in front of my eyes,” Williams said. “I was watching the whole time.”

There was just one problem: Williams was actually in the game and apparently didn’t finish running his route. Receivers coach P.J. Fleck, ever the perfectionist, didn’t let it slide.

“I got in trouble with Coach Fleck because I was just watching the play,” Williams said sheepishly.

In this case, considering Martin’s electric performance, it’s hard to blame the guy.
