Raheem Keeps It Loose

November 11th, 2010

Ronde Barber told a group of Carolina reporters yesterday that Raheem Morris’ approach is spot on for this young football team.

Joe listened in on the Panthers’ official website and Barber said there’s been no let up to Raheem’s high-energy approach since Day 1.

“Raheem’s a lot looser than some of the other coaches I’ve had here, but his approach to football and his approach to what goes on in this building I think relates well to a young football team. And so everybody’s excited for it, still excited for it,” Barber said. “That energy hasn’t died down at all. It’s always a hard transition when you’re getting a new coach. But he made it as easy as possible, even though we were struggling a little bit last year.”

No doubt Raheem has the Bucs playing extraordinarily hard from top to bottom on the roster.

Joe wonders whether Raheem will have the magic touch for knowing when to tighten — or futher loosen — the reigns and manage the club when it matures this year and beyond.

    Only time will tell, but as smart as Raheem has proven already, I wont bet against him. Look at his improvement in one year! I think he will prove to be an even greater coach with more time on the job. Like his team, his future looks exciting!

    Thanks to our favorite Sunday afternoon website I guess I also no longer need to get the NFL Network to watch the Thursday night games. Right on my TV too. 🙂

    Loose is an understatement Joe. $5 hookers keep it tighter. From calling the HC Rah, to Tupac music at practice, to Rah hanging out with the players in the evenings to having a designated “dealer” in jerramy stevens.

    I get the feeling that Ronde is planting the seeds to get in our coaching ranks after he hangs up the pads. I don’t know. Just a hunch.
