Take A Bow, Raheem

October 10th, 2010

Who’s the leading candidate for NFL Coach of the Year?

Now Joe’s not ready to build and erect a statue of Raheem Morris in downtown Tampa for three wins, but the guy deserves a standing freakin’ ovation.

The 2010 Bucs are 3-1.

Not even the most stout optimist had the Bucs in this predicament after four games. When the game was on the line today, Morris and his team flashed extraordinary will and drive — and some incredibly aggressive playcalling — that only comes from strong leadership. The head coach deserves his due. Now he’s got four in a row on the road.

If the Bucs can even split they’re next two games, home against the Saints and Rams, who got pounded today they sit at 4-2.

    I think they held up pretty well against the no-huddle offense, which is a sign of pretty good coaching. They’re still getting run over a bit, but seem to buckle down before it’s too late for the most part. I’m hoping the injuries to Faine, Price and Hayes aren’t too serious. I saw Price came back in, but it looked like he aggravated the hammy.

    I think they need to look for some quick screens to counter these blitzes everyone seems to be throwing at us. Maybe some draw plays from the shotgun would counter that as well. They can’t just keep taking the blitz head-on and hope they can loft up a jump ball without it burning us badly.

    I think Benn looked pretty good today for his first real outing.

    Keep it up, I love the wins


    kinda sketchy at times ,but a gutsy win. HOW BOUT “THE GOAT”?????

    You know what the icing on this cake of a win will be? Since it came down to the final seconds, it will be replayed on NFL network rewind and we get to live through all the moments again with soundbites!!!

    The run D is really turning into a problem, but our young team found a way to win. Rah, breath easy for a few days!

    Was listening to the post game on 620….ALL the players gave Rah a ton of credit for the game he called today…….

    ahem. I could have sworn I predicted us 3-1 after the first 4 games a the start of the season, and also saying if they fell short, even 2-2 would be acceptable.

    In fact, I even predicted our one loss to be against the Steelers. I’m not bragging or anything like that…just pointing out that the optomist here did predict it 😉

    Good teams find a way to win! Period… We got ran over, gave the ball away, and couldn’t pick up the blitz! But this team NEVER quit! Talib’s pick, Sabby’s pick and Spurlock’s catch and Freeman’s FIGHT! This is what makes a team better, now they know it’s never over. And just like Goodfellajay, I also had them at 3-1…. Now all of a sudden everybody loves Rah and Free! Very funny….

  13. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Maybe for the Rays, but I’ll bet the Bucs will still be hands-off. I mean, we play the Saints next…no way will the media predict a win in that game.

    Personally, I think we can win it, but I’ll wait till end of week to make a prediction. My score was off this week, but the win wasn’t. Feels good, considering we were only supposed to win 2 games this year.

  14. Gary Says:

    You really do have to give Rah his credit, he had a good balance of conservative and aggressive play calling at the right times.

    I’ll tell you something else, and Raheem is going to have to address this:

    Freeman was recognizing the defense and calling protections…our Oline simply failed to capitalize. All thos blitzes and sacks or pressures? Take a good look…he called them and trusted the line to protect him…and they failed.

    I think we need new blood on the line to shake things up.

    I believe the best part of today’s win, is that again Freeman leads this team from behind to victory!!in a Qb driven league, we have found our Franchise Qb!! The Future looks great. Raheem gets this team to play hard every down!!! It’s amazing what he’s doing with such a young team. The Glazers are looking more and more like football,as well as financial, geniuses. Morris called a great game today! I think that ass Bryan billick is still choking on his tongue. Raheem made him look stupid today!! What happened, Bryan, I thought Tampa was the inferior team? We won the stats AND the Game! Only thing inferior today was the piss poor commentators!Congrats Raheem

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    It’s so cool for the people who defended this team all summer! Lakelad Bob, Bigmac, Pete, and of couse- JimBuc!! When I first discovered this post, it seemed like the Buc Fans were under siege by the Haters- the “slow squad”. Nice to see the Good Guys are redeemed, and those idiots ate proven to be nothing more than hateful losers!! It just feels sweet to see the Good guys winning!

  18. lightningbuc Says:

    Capt Timmy,

    Agree about the commentators. Billick was either drunk or high or both. Good God! He thought the Bucs should have run it with 15 seconds left and NO timeouts. No wonder he ain’t coaching no more.

  19. McBuc Says:

    Hey Capt, where’s the love man! Just kidding, it is noce not to have Mushy, Rahdom Tampa 2, and Patrick raining on our day. GO BUCS!
