When coach Raheem Morris singled out receiver Mike Williams for losing individual battles against the Patriots last week, he didn’t just do it in the media.
Williams said Morris personally challenged him to win his one-on-one matchups after he was bottled up by Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty.
Morris “called the receivers out as a group because he called us the leader of the bus,” Williams said. “But he really called me out for real. He told me, ‘(With) man coverage, we’re going to the X.’ That’s where you have to go.”
The ‘X’ is a reference to the split end, the term used for Williams’ position in the Bucs’ offensive scheme.
