Peter King Is Watching Raheem MorrisDecember 9th, 2011
Any Bucs fan who has yet to start pounding beers on this good Friday afternoon — wow, two weeks to Christmas — knows the Bucs game against the Jags Sunday could be a pivotal game in the history of the Bucs franchise.
If the Bucs lose to the Jags, the howls of the “Fire Raheem” crowd will be deafening wanting Morris’ head on a platter.
In the mind of popcorn-munching, coffee-slurping, fried chicken-eating, oatmeal-loving, beer-chugging Peter King, Morris is on a list of some 10 coaches he believes are “endangered” coaches and admits Morris will be front and center for the SI.com columnist.
5. The rumor mill. Steve Spagnuolo and Norv Turner and a cast of maybe 10 men are endangered as we enter the home stretch of the season. I expect the pre-game shows to be chock full of fresh news about who’s in and who’s out — and I’ll have an eye open for Raheem Morris in the next month.
If the Bucs lose to the Jags, it’s not an outrageous prediction to say the Bucs could lose the rest of the season, ending the year on a 10-game losing streak, which would be damning for any coach much less an embattled coach going into his final year of his contract.
