THE PESSIMIST: Morris Better Finish 9-7 In ’09

January 23rd, 2009
"Hey, everybody forgets we finished 9-7. That's right, 9-7 two years in a row, even with lots and lots of injuries. Did I say injuries twice?"

"Hey, everybody forgets we finished 9-7. That's right, 9-7 two years in a row, even with lots and lots of injuries. ...Did I mention injuries?"

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.

    Brad:

    Joe knows all too well your history of polluting local message boards and how you are banned from Clear Channel Tampa Bay. Judging by your comment I’m guessing you are also banned from Genesis Communication’s stations or are working toward that goal.

    Joe also knows how you lost your weekly radio gig in Bradenton for a racist bomb you dropped while live on the air.

    There are countless sites on the internet where you can race bait. This blog will not be one of them.

    Joe is very much a First Amendment absolutist, within reason. Joe welcomes and encourages your feedback and comments so long as it is related to football. Your comment above is staying up for the world to see.

    And it will be your last race baiting comment on this blog.

    Remember: It takes a whole lot more work for you to post your race screed than it does for Joe to delete the comments.

    Thanks so much for being an avid reader of JoeBucsFan.com.
