Ravens Closed Out Bucs “Without A Fullback”November 28th, 2010
Classy postgame press conference by Raheem Morris.
The head coach didn’t point fingers at officials or players and kept himself steady after an emotional loss. But Raheem did show a little frustration in the closing seconds of his media chat by saying the Ravens “outexecuted us in the four-minute drive without a fullback.”
Emphasis was on “without a fullback,” referring to Baltimore losing Le’Ron McClain earlier in the game.
The Bucs shut out the Ravens in the second half and clearly knew Baltimore wasn’t going to get fancy on their final drive with 3:05 to play. But Baltimore Jim Batesed the Bucs and put up three first downs on five plays and took a knee.
Essentially, the Bucs knew what was coming and were outplayed. Obviously tough to swallow for Raheem after such a strong defensive performance.
