THE PESSIMIST: Morris Better Finish 9-7 In ’09January 23rd, 2009
Well, well, well, we’re all going to find out this year whether Raheem Morris can finish 9-7 with Chucky’s players.
Hey, Chucky did it two years in a row.
Fans better be expecting at least that much from Morris. He’s got to be held to a standard.
And if he’s going to “Stay the Course” and just do some fine tuning and inject chest bumps and rah-rah crap with a few new free agents, then he better go 9-7 or better.
Raheem the Dream deserves no slack. The only rope he’ll get from THE PESSIMIST is if he and Mark Dominik find a hefty set of balls and start Luke McCown or a draft a quarterback in the first round and throw him into the fire. But if they go with Garcia, or some other veteran, then why shouldn’t they finish 9-7?
Yeah, the Bucs needed a new direction. But that direction needs to jack the team up, not down.
This isn’t Tony Dungy taking over the Yuks in the ’90s. This is a 9-7 team with a fair share of young players.
