Newly hired Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator Dave Canales had his introductory press conference earlier this week. Amongst several topics brought up was the Bucs’ rushing attack, or lack thereof.
Canales had a front row seat to just how explosive the Bucs’ running backs can be. Rookie Rachaad White went off against the Seahawks’ defense in their matchup in Germany. White posted 105 yards on 22 carries, including GMFB’s “Angry Run” of the Week. All while Canales watched from the Seahawks’ sideline.
“Oh yeah, what shocked me about that was the toughness in the style that he ran because I saw him as this versatile guy who you could run routes with him out of the backfield, split him out wide and do some things like that, plus the run game,” Canales stated. “But then you see his attitude in person in Germany, just see the style that he ran downhill, he was aggressive. The violence that he played with and you go, ‘Wow, this guy could be special.’ He’s got some great skillset that really fits into our system.”
Broken Buccaneers’ Rushing Attack
The Buccaneers’ rushing attack was dead last in the league last year. Which is surprising as the Bucs have a solid running backs group with Leonard Fournette, Rachaad White and Ke’Shawn Vaughn.
Canales has his work cut out for him, but appears to have a plan in place for this rushing attack. And Rachaad White looks to be a huge part of that plan.
