No raining on WR Williams’ debut for Tampa Bay

One of the biggest losses in the fallen era of multi-use stadiums is the lack of mud during rain games.

But there was no such shortage of mud for the Dolphins and Buccaneers on Saturday in Miami, which usually means a pretty useless game, with guys gingerly running through a muddy field and dropping passes. In other words, it was just like any other Buccaneers game from last season.


We did see a pretty nice 30-yard pickup by Buccaneers WR Mike Williams. There has been a lot of buzz around Williams, and we got a small taste of it. Williams has the most upside of any of the Bucs receivers. Keep an eye on him for the rest of the preseason.

QB Josh Freeman capped the drive off with a nice touchdown pass to Sammie Stroughter.

WR Brandon Marshall dropped the first pass thrown in his direction on a quick slant and also dropped another wide-open pass on the team’s third drive (welcome to Miami) — even after the rain had stopped. This was not a good start for the Dolphins receivers. Even Brian Hartline,who started opposite Marshall, dropped a pass.
