ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the football team Tampa Bay Buccaneers. NT Chris Hovan, who signed a one-year contract last spring, is suited to play in a one-gap scheme like the Buccaneers. He has benefited from line coach Rod Marinelli's guidance. WR Ike Milliard no longer has the burst or speed to be a threat downfield, but he still does a good job of finding holes in zones, securing the ball and making yards after the catch. The weeks RB Cadillac Williams took off to rest a sore foot might prove to be a blessing. RB Michael Pittam is nursing a sore shoulder and neck, so the team will lean heavily on Williams.
