Raheem The Dream Speaks

October 4th, 2009

Joe has some quotes from Raheem The Dream after the Bucs loss to the Redskins.

“This was a tough one. When you put yourself in position to win and don’t, it’s not easy. They fought. They did what we asked them to do. We need to go back in the lab and work. If we don’t stop the big play, we will continue to struggle. We will continue to lose these types of games.

“I’m not sure how we could get a better start than we received. The defense started fast and we got a fumble. We get it and the offense sticks it right in there. That’s how you want to start a football game. We have to figure out how to start more like that.”

On Aqib Talib’s play:

“He had three picks but I bet he feels awful about the [Santana Moss] touchdown. But that’s the life of a corner. He’ll be fine.”

On Josh Johnson:

“He did a nice job of managing the football game. We just have to get him better and more comfortable on third down. Failure on third down are the things that hurt you. He can make the plays when they are there. He just has to be more consistent and he will be fine.”

On the critical third down call deep in Redskins territory late in the game that failed.

“The third down call was a quarterback couble-option type of ploay. It was a great call. It was the stuff we wanted. The Redskins just made a great play to force us to kick a field goal.

“We got the ball back with two minutes left and had a chance to win it or tie it. We didn’t get it done.”

On the loss:

“I am disappointed in this team. We didn’t show the killer instinct. We have improved but we are not where we want to be. They gave themselves a chance but we have to go back to the drawing board and find a way to win a football game.”

    Josh Johnson, obviously very athletic, mobile, and agile, BUT, he has to learn that running out of the pocket is not his first option. I find it hard to believe that the hapless Redskins had the receivers covered most of the day.

    Skins made adjustments at halftime against the Bucs D and Johnson on O, and our hopeless coaches made none. Get used to it RahRah, you are a professional HC now, teams won’t let you do the same things that worked in the first half against you in the second half.

    This is RIDICULOUS!!! Fans, we are now 0-8 in our last 8 games. But hey the Glazers are still 39 million to the good no matter what happens.That dumbass Snyder did win today didn’t he. I believe the Skins are 2-2. Right in the thick of things. But let’s keep laughing at him and Jerry Jones as they at least attemp to field a championship team. When are the fair weather fans of Tampa going to wake up and see what the Glazers are doing.
