On how it feels to be a Buccaneer
Josh Johnson: It feels great. I am ecstatic because this is a perfect fit, and to me, this is a blessing in disguise.
On his familiarity with the west coast offense
Josh Johnson: Talking with [Quarterback] Coach [Greg] Olson, and other teams that ran the west coast, it was so simple. There were some protections that I may have called one thing and it was different other places. Some teams use numbers for protections and some teams use words, but everything is just talking football. I taught them what I know and then they said we do this, we do that, and it was real easy to explain things.
On if he thinks it will be a few years before he plays
Josh Johnson: Most likely. I get to learn from Jeff Garcia, and he is a great quarterback to learn from. Growing up in the Bay area, I was a 49ers fan, so I have been watching Garcia since I was little. I am pretty sure they are going to bring me along, and I am going to try and learn as much as I can, and get better everyday.
On how he was able to throw 43 touchdowns and only one interception
Josh Johnson: Understanding the west coast offense, it is a great offense, it works for you. That is what I do; I let the offense work for me. I take what the defense gives me and what you think about the west coast offense there is always somebody open, you just have to find them. I knew where everyone was at because my knowledge for the game has improved so tremendously, and that is what I feel my greatest asset is, how smart I am. I value the ball and I don't throw interceptions.
On the East-West Shrine game
Josh Johnson: I think the game helped me out a lot because one of my main knocks was that I haven't
played against a lot of competition, that I have done all of these things but it wasn't
against anybody. In Houston, I just wanted to go out and show that I can play on this
level and that is what I did.
