Mind-blowing Statistic Of FutilityJanuary 5th, 2012
On the morning Raheem Morris was jettisoned by Team Glazer, Joe posted three questions that Morris must answer to if he were to keep his gig as the Bucs’ eighth coach in franchise history.
Apparently (at least) one of them he could not answer, and Joe would be stunned if the question wasn’t asked by Team Glazer:
“Why was your team seemingly never prepared for a game?”
Here’s a Buc nugget to chew on. TB scored one offensive TD in the opening quarter this season. Opposing offenses scored 15 TDs in 1Q.
Of course, Joe knows there will be some (many?) who will try to pin that on Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.
That is, in a nutshell, the Raheem Morris era of the Bucs. It wasn’t just this year, it was last year as well, as Josh Freeman bailed the Bucs out of too many holes after slow starts.
To add to the frustration, Kaufman also notes the Bucs, despite having one of the most dangerous running backs in the NFL, had the fewest rushing attempts in the league, which is simply outrageous.
The Bucs’ gameplans remind Joe of a line that Bob Knight told Bob Costas on Costas’ old nightly interview show on NBC over 20 years ago.
The NCAA adopted a new policy that seemed discriminant against inner city youths. Knight said of the controversial policy, “It is an ill-conceived idea by they who themselves were ill-conceived.”
