Not really, you still have to worry about a beast RB every down. You just won't have to be as confused about which one

This is true, we have much to be concerned about, you guys have many many weapons.
But we have a few too.
I just looked at the Radar, it is still raining at 12.15 pm, and there is still a band of showers offshore in the Gulf. Looks like it will be a wet game

Somewhere in the Bucs locker room, Ronde Barber is sighing in relief.

Well that squashes all those spread read option looks Cam became so dangerous with. No other RB has done those with Cam

I think that is a big deal. Willams runs the more traditional stuff. Which he can do.....but the spread looks we near mastered at the end of last year

Well there is the uber pessimistic CRA we have come to expect.

I swear your head would actually explode if a positive and optimistic thought ever wandered into it.

spot on...but that would mean the pitches to williams are not read option plays since cam in fact draws the defense to him to get williams into open space.

there's nothing to read in that case.

Sure you are. As Newton gets the ball and make a few steps toward the end he watches to see what the end does. If the end pushes upfield and comes looping around, he doesn't pitch the ball and he runs to where the DE just vacated over tackle, If the end is coming straight at him, he waits until the end commits to him and then he pitches it wide to the back who is waiting for the ball and goes around the corner for a big gain if the receivers are blocking downfield. Everything keys off the end.

On the touchdown run pitch to Williams against NO, the action was going right which is where the blocking and the fullback went and Newton took a few steps that way and then pitched the ball to Williams who was going against the grain in a footrace to the corner. He actually did read the DE on the right side but it wasn't important as long as he didn't come in unblocked to blow everything up. Because the play was a misdirection designed to draw the left end inside trying to go across the play and make a tackle from behind. Instead he gets sucked inside giving Williams the edge and he only has to avoid a few tackles and he is gone.
