THE PESSIMIST: Raheem Needs One MoreDecember 8th, 2010
THE PESSIMIST is a diehard Bucs fan whose negative writings appear occasionally on JoeBucsFan.com. His views do not necessarily reflect those of Joe. However, Joe sure gets a kick out of them.
The smiley dude from Jersey has done a fine job. The Bucs are 7-5 on the cheap. It’s his team of dreams and miracles.
But when you set a standard for the talent and tell the world you’re the best team in the NFC, then you can’t completely fall apart. That’s regression.
Raheem Morris needs one more win to deserve his job back next year. Don’t lose six in a row to finish the season and ask THE PESSIMIST to buy tickets and tell THE PESSIMIST you know what you’re doing, and sell THE PESSMIST a line of crap that the team is headed in the right direction.
If you’re going to finish 0-6 and throw that drivel in face of fans, then you’ll be staring at 30k in the stands next year.
It doesn’t matter what the projections were at the start of 2010. You don’t reward your kid for failing a class in a final semester just because he got and A in the first half and got a C+ overall.
That crap might fly from a granola-munching soccer mom on a team of 8-year-olds, but not in the real world and especially not in the NFL.
Scores of Bucs fans rejected this team in the offseason and early this season. Raheem and the Bucs proved them wrong.
Losing out would mean they’ve stepped a giant step backwards and Team Glazer should get on the phone to Bill Cowher.
Good luck, Raheem. You only need one more win in THE PESSIMIST’s book.
