Raheem The Dream Claims His Players Suck

Raheem the Dream has basically thrown his hands in the air in frustration over his sorry defensive line.

Raheem the Dream has thrown his hands in the air in frustration over his sorry defensive line.

Buried in an article from Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune was a quote from Raheem the Dream where he called out his defensive line, which frankly should have happened weeks ago.

(Joe’s beyond tired of the coddling. If a bunch of adults playing this horribly cannot handle their coach telling them they suck, then they need to get the hell out of the NFL.)

In short, Raheem the Dream threatened a housecleaning of his defensive line.

“That last drive was more of that Giants-type of physicality where you get beat up and you get overpowered,” Bucs coach Raheem Morris said, referring to the 24-0 Week 3 loss in which the Bucs surrendered 226 rushing yards.

“We either need to get better up front or we need to get better people,” he said. “We’ve got to find a way to stop the run when it counts, and that last drive was one of the times it counted.

Joe has resisted going after Raheem the Dream for several reasons but Joe can’t let this one slip by, as much as he likes Raheem the Dream.

Yo, Ra: You are the one who picked these slugs. You — or was it Jim Bates? — are the one who thought these guys could play a two-gap system. Or are you finally admitting this was the proverbial case of a round peg in a square hole that virtually every football person not connected to the Bucs from Pat Kirwan to Steve White has been saying since January?

Or are you confessing you thoroughly misjudged the “talents” of your defensive line?

After all, the head coach has the final say on who stays with the team when the final cuts are made in early September, right?

Or are you suggesting that someone in the halls of One Buc Palace is telling you who to pick for “your” team?

    Like I said in my blog, I’m hoping that by “up front” he means the front office.

    Talent, Talent, Talent. Raheem had to use these players becasue the Glazers are not spending money. I still dont understand how its Raheem’s fault, he does not control payroll.

    As long as Morris has this attitude the chances are extremely high that he will NEVER EVER be a winning coach.
