Thumbs down Check out Carl Nicks reason for going to Tampa Bay

“The run game, man,’’ Nicks said, when asked what attracted him to the Bucs. “No disrespect to our team (the Saints), but we’re pass first, pass second, pass third, pass fourth, fifth and sixth team and maybe some runs at the end. The Saints have great running backs. But here it’s a little different. We’ve got a big bruiser (LeGarrette Blount). We’re going to pound the ball, pound the ball and go over the top.’’

I wonder how how he will feel when he realizes the reason the Bucs run so much is because they CAN'T pass!!

Not very surprising. Passblocking just isn't that much fun when you play O-line.

All Nicks will be is the newest member that Josh Freeman and other Bucs can argue with on national television.

if you were to knock anything about Nicks as a OG it would be his pass blocking. nit picking but it is the area he lacks in a bit. stunts do get him once in a while. going to be a heck of a whole to fill. OC last season and now OG this year

The run game has nothing to do with it, he's all about the MONEY. If he really wanted to get back to the playoffs or be on a team that actually has the potential to go back to the Superbowl he would have kept his ass put here in New Orleans.

I am not too sure about that B005ted... 16 games with a team that focuses on something that is your weak point can be exhausting.

Will get some objective evidence now that he'll have Josh Freeman throwing for him...

Yes, he will be missed...money is the biggest reason for leaving. And, big guys don't like moving their feet much. Pass blocking requires "reactive" foot movement. That takes a lot out of an OL overtime. Run blocking requires you to go to a certain spot and block a certain guy, so it's more planned out than pass blocking, plus it gives them a chance to showcase their strength and throw their weight around.
