Raheem Clobbers Piscitelli

September 14th, 2009

"Knock. Knock. Who's there? Linebacker. hahahaha


Joe is liking these Raheem The Dream news conferences in the regular season. Chucky was rarely, if ever, so brazen and all over the place.

Asked about player quotes talking about communication issues on defense, Raheem The Dream said, “We’re not into pointing fingers. And that’s something I gotta stop. We don’t do that. We’re not going to do that.   … The big plays were the obvious ones. Joe my Barber can tell me who those plays were on. Those are the things that have to be coached up.”

Then a reporter quickly asked about Sabby Piscitelli playing poorly on Sunday and through the preseason. The reporter continued talking about Sabby’s poor play and “now you’re in the regular season and it going to cost you games.”

Raheem The Dream cut him off and says, “That’s right.”

The reporter continued,  “When does [Piscitelli] become accountable for making bad plays?”

 “Right now,” Raheem The Dream answered. “… All the blame isn’t on Sabby. …We’ll get him going right.”

Joe enjoys Raheem The Dream calling his players out publicly. But it’s pretty harsh when a head coach verbally agrees with a reporter — and shakes is head in agreement — that a player cost the team a game.

Joe hopes Piscitelli is shamed and motivated to look like a starter immediately.

    Hey Piscitelli was the leading tackler yesterday…why no love for that? 🙂

    All the blame is not on Sabby, much of it, but all, no way.

    I love it, go Rah…

    Pete: generally you don’t want the secondary to lead in tackles, unless your playing 8 or 9 in the box to stop the run…

    I personally think it’s refreshing to see the Raheem the Dream’s honesty and forthrightness in his answers and comments following the game yesterday as well as the Momday news conference…something we haven’t seen around here in a long time (if ever). Dungy was certainly honest but shyed away from controversy and holding anyone accountable but himself; and Gruden, well, let’s just say Napolean never had any faults and was as far away from the truth as he was from critical wins. (and for you critics of my comment please don’t bring up the Super Bowl win as Gruden’s doing other than knowing the oponent’s playbook)

    I truly believe Sabby did the best he could. He’s not John Lynch. He seems to be best suited for special teams at this time. He’s not quick or fast enough to keep up in this defense. The last touchdown they threw his way was an excellent pump fake by Homo that four defenders went for. Homo congratulated Witten as much as the wide out that caught the pass.

    I thought Waterboy Morris was A Defensive backs coach??? Maybe he shoulkd stick to that instead of shreddind our kicking game and Quarterback play wait till Lefty can’t throw I mean over throw in a few weeks because of his non ability to move away from pressure and is hurt. He looked a little woosy in the third and fourth quarter from a couple of hard hits from Dallas
