“Yesterday Was A Step Back”

September 28th, 2009

In his weekly Monday press conference, Raheem the Dream, despite demoting Byron Leftwich to No. 3, praised his defense for keeping the game from totally getting out of hand.

Like it wasn’t out of hand?

“It could have gotten ugly, it didn’t,” Raheem the Dream said. “But don’t take that the wrong way.

“It was not all Leftwich’s fault. But that’s the guy who gets the sword.”

Raheem the Dream all but promised new starters in addition to Josh Johnson but after being asked by Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune what those changes were, Raheem the Dream punted and dodged the question.

Raheem the Dream also called out the offensive line. Personally, Joe has a difficult time believing one player (Jeff Faine’s injury) results in the entire offensive line crumbling. Raheem the Dream also said Faine may return sooner than expected but gave no timetable.

As far as Johnson, Raheem the Dream claims his quote about Johnson being “a career backup” was taken out of context.

    Oh…..spoken like

    RahRah needs to think before he speaks. He is not a position coach anymore, he needs to be more diplomatic and speak in tongues, like Belichik does. He says a lot of dumb things, things he ends up putting his foot in his mouth for.

    Raheem is a career positions coach.

    Except those guys weren’t in over their heads. 🙂

    OK let me get this straight…

    Morris is 100% behind Leftwich-cans McCown even though he was signed in the post season as an obvious replacement to Garcia. Yet when Morris gets the keys to daddy’s car he signs the gimpy old buzzard Leftwich and then blows pick #17 in the draft for a guy who is probably rated about #60-70 in the talent pool.

    In fact Raheem is so dedicated to his boy Byron that he shitcans his O.C. at the eve of the real season, and blows out McCown shortly thereafter.

    Now this man from the mean streets of Newark, who is a man of substance and iron will, a man of his word, a man of conviction—-well his pick at starting quarterback has been relagated to 3rd place on the bench with all of 3 games under his belt.

    Is this douchepipe grabbing at straws or what? I mean don’t get me wrong-I think Leftwich is done as an NFL player-(I mean if you get benched for Garrard what the hell else is left in the tank) but for Mr. Iron Will Raheem to change and go 180 degrees from what was his obvious plan surely does not make me-or any of his charges-view him seem like a man of strong will and conviction. More like a man with a paper asshole and the spine of a jellyfish.

    I mean what the hell is this tough inner city guy made out of? Clay I guess….

    The Dream is just that, a seat holder for our next great coach. Hopefully Bill Cowher or Mike Shanahan. No more experimentation with waterboys and shit.
