Near the end of the 09 season it was safe to say that Tampas o-line looked better with Gruden. Chucky built that o-line and they did not take too well to the zone blocking scheme , they may do better next year but they took a step back as fas as progress goes . The wholes that were opened up a year ago were not there this year thats why Ward did not look good or even Graham . Cadillac looked above average while the o-line went through this transformation . This part of the game will improve with chemistry you got to believe that the same o-line will be back next year also with the same backs . Tampa just has to commit to the running game that has to be the bucs heartbeat on offense . We cant let Freeman get into 3rd and longs doing this will allow Winslow to make even more big plays and set the offense up with some good playaction . Pounding the football is good for the defense too , yea the 09 superbowl champs Pitsburgh Steelers had a lot of playmakers on their D but if you look at the numbers they were rarely on the field ,that gives them rest and allows them to be fresh while they are on the field we got to get back to that . This rushing attack will be better when Freeman legs becomes a weapon not to say hes got to be like Vick . Josh running ability has to be on the mind of the other teams Defensive players and coaches Josh Freeman is faster than Aaron Rodgers but coaches would be more fearful of Rodgers running than Freeman . Tampa only had five rushing tuchdowns in the 09-10 season these group of guys are capeable of more than that . To barrel down to it ,the running game does not need anything but consistenticy and chemistry, with that you will hear that good old saying as if the A-Train or Dunn was playing
