Raheem Morris: Coach Of The Year

November 10th, 2010

adam scheinThough the Bucs are in the midst of a playoff run — and a “Race to 10” — as we have reached the midway point of the 2010 season, to this day there are a number of Bucs fans who still hurl obscenities at their computer screen over Peter King.

The Sports Illustrated columnist stepped out on a ledge and guessed the Bucs would win a grand total of two games this year. Many Bucs fans erupted in outrage upon learning this prediction.

But King was hardly alone. Adam Schein of Sirius NFL Radio and FoxSports.com also had an equally dire forecast for the Bucs, going so far as to call the Bucs “a trainwreck,” believing the Bucs would fight the Rams for the first overall pick in the 2011 draft.

But things have changed. Schein, observed earlier this season attempting to board the Bucs bandwagon, is now on record as believing Raheem Morris is the NFL coach of the year, so he wrote on FoxSports.com.

Coach of the Year: Raheem Morris

I thought the Bucs would win five games – between 2009 and 2010. Tampa is 5-3 at the midway point. Morris finally took ownership of his staff and put the team in the hands of young Josh Freeman as the unquestioned leader. I think everyone who follows the league looks at the Bucs with a jaded view, wondering when they will collapse. Morris consistently has the Bucs ready, playing their best ball late in games.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is currently No. 2 on my list, and frankly more of a “1-A”. Separating Morris from Tomlin was rather difficult. Tomlin’s 6-2 start, while missing Ben Roethlisberger for the first quarter of the season, is incredible.

Joe agrees. To Joe’s knowledge, Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune was the first to float this in the MSM, although Joe was squawking about it the minute the Bucs beat the Bengals. As Richardson has said on a number of local sports radio shows, look at the Bucs roster and see if any player is among the top-five at his respective position.

    Adam why do you walk around with your mouth open like that?

    Adam Schein = Douche of the Century

    I don’t think the job that Rah has done is even close to Tomlin. So they lose a QB, but still had all that champoinship talent and that sick D and running game. Rah at this point is coach of the year and its not even close. The only arguments you can make are Todd Haley and Tom Cable, but all the rookies starting for us puts Rah over the top.

    We should have a photo shop contest with that picture of Shein

  5. d-money Says:

    No amount of flip flopping can change the fact that Adam Schein is a huge douche.

  6. Aldo Says:

    coach of the year will be decided between rah, spagnuolo and haley!!! but i guess rah has the big lead

  7. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Unfortunately, Morris will not get the Coach of the Year unless he get’s us 1-2 games into the playoffs.

  8. Buckeyebob Says:

    Rah should be given strong consideration for coach of the year. If he posts an 8 + win season he should get it….I would think that Mark D should get GM of the year for his building of this team. With the succes of the draft and a strong performance on the field he should get the nod.

    I don’t think any coach has ever won the award without a better than .500 record. So, Rah’s chances are very slim.

    However, if you want to give an award for best coaching job of the bad teams, then Rah has the lead at the halfway mark.

    Problem is: he is the d coordinator of a horrible defense. Can you be head coach of the year while being the worst d coordinator? Hard to reconcile that.

  10. New Era Buc Says:

    Great Job Coach. 5 more wins is definitely in reach. Pay no attention to the trolls rah, there are lots of fans who believe in you! Those kitties are in ass kickin this Sunday

  11. Capt.Tim Says:

    Rah is Coach of the year, Dominick GM of the year, Thomas is town fool of the year! Tampa justifiably racks up the top awards! No Coach, GM, or fool can compete with ours! Great time to be a Bucs fan. Hating that this season is half over, but already excited to see what we do in FA and the draft. I’ve waited my whole life to see an exciting Buc Team, and am thrilled I lived at least long enough ta see one!

  12. Capt.Tim Says:

    By the way, think Adam Schein does a great job. Always admired his work! And he’s spot on about Cosch Morris as Coach of the year. Good job Adam! 🙂

    Well Dim, I guess you are conceding that the playoffs are not a reality since you are thrilled for the draft and free agency. You sound like a lions fan.

    BTW – what is to be excited about in Free Agency? Key Vincent, Angelo Crowell, Mike Nugent, Byron Leftwich, Derrick Ward, et al.
