But It Was Violent…

June 17th, 2009

Joe was under the impression Raheem the Dream wanted his players to play with violence. So Joe wonders why Raheem the Dream is now upset his players are violent?

Per Woody Cummings of TBO.com, former South Florida defensive end Jarrett Buie was run out of practice this morning for having the gall to hit Byron Leftwich.

During one of the many 11-on-11 drills run during this morning’s workout, Buie broke through from his right end spot and ran hard into veteran quarterback Byron Leftwich, knocking Leftwich off his feet.

Bucs coach Raheem Morris reacted angrily to the poor etiquette and immediately kicked Buie out of practice and ordered his defensive coaches to keep their players in line.

Joe understands hitting your quarterback in practice is almost as bad as crunching a teammate’s face with a helmet. But Raheem is the one who has preached antisocial behavior on the field. So he shouldn’t be too upset when his players play that way.

    Joe, what are you talking about? Do you honestly believe the words that flow from your fingers? If you’ve ever played the sport you understand that there is an etiquette to the way you practice. This team needs to be more violent; they were a bunch of pansy asses down the stretch last year, and it was maddening to watch. Get a clue, dude. Man, you’re really good at stretching your point even when it isn’t relevant to the topic or quote. Don’t you think there will be different standards for a first round pick as compared to an undrafted, long shot. Buie sucked for USF, and I hope he doesn’t stick on the roster. By the way, if you’re offended by violent overtones & play maybe you should start a tennis website.

    Dude – what about aqib’s practice etiquette? He didn’t get tossed after clubbing Cox

    No, he didn’t get tossed. But the whole team had to run gassers for his indiscretion, and again, there are different standards for those two players. I’ll never defend Talib’s action (I didn’t like that pick to begin with), but his thuggery has nothing to do with Coach Morris’ mantra of violent play. He’s talking about going hard every play. He wants to see major collissions at the point of attack. They just weren’t bringing their hats to the party at the end of last season, and Coach Morris wants to see his players bringing the thunder. Now, you can play the game of football violently and not commit an assault on an opposing player. What Talib did was borderline criminal and has nothing to do with playing hard & fast.
