“Feeling There Will Be Staff Changes Made”November 30th, 2011
Before Joe gets rolling here, Raheem Morris is safe.
Joe has heard that from many sources and Joe himself is of the opinion barring the major collapse continuing, Morris will be your Bucs head coach for the 2012 season.
But “The Professor,” John Clayton of BSPN, speaking this afternoon on The Fabulous Sports Babe Show heard on WHBO-AM 1040, has a hunch that the movers and shakers at One Buc Palace will make “staff changes” amid the assistant coaches.
Clayton was harsh on the Bucs coaching staff and Joe quickly transcribed Clayton’s thoughts.
John Clayton: I think when you look at the whole Tampa Bay team, you can see a regression on this team that is very, very concerning. I was at the Bucs-Saints game in New Orleans and guys didn’t know how to line up, it was a cluster, guys yelling at one another, [Josh] Freeman, [Kellen] Winslow… [the coaching staff has] to take more control of the offense, the coaching staff has to eliminate the mistakes and there are way too many for this team. The team is pretty sloppy. They can’t even shoot a gun straight.
Fabulous Sports Babe: Why is that, are they just goofing off, are they not practicing properly, are they stupid?
Clayton: You have to take it back to practice. If you practice the things you should do then you shouldn’t look lost and right now they look lost and it is continuing. How many mistakes do these guys make? How many false starts do they have? Raheem says they are practicing well, but it’s not carrying over to the field. That has to be cleaned up.
Sports Babe: Is Raheem on the hot seat?
Clayton: It’s lukewarm but it’s warming up because of the season. You have a feeling there will be staff changes made, but Raheem stays.
