Raheem Tops In Entertainment

February 19th, 2011

During a live chat with BSPN.com minions Friday, NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas was asked to grade the entertainment value of coaches in the division.

And the man who loves to call himself an entertainer, Raheem Morris, quickly was annoited fun-guy-in-chief by Yasinskas, who also claimed that Raheem has a heckuva lot to say compared to his counterparts.


… Is Raheem most entertaining coach in Nfc South? Tell us something funny about him!

Pat Yasinskas 

By far. When I get the daily transcripts of coaches quotes from around the division, Raheem’s are usually three or four pages. Payton’s are usually two. Smith’s might be one page. Fox’s were usually just a couple paragraphs.


Mike Smith only has one-page transcript of his news conferences? For a winning team?

This tells Joe the Atlanta media is lame and that the NFL was even more asinine for endlessly running that stupid Falcons-on-the-bus commercial all season long. Why shove a boring dude down everyone’s throat when you could be marketing Raheem?

Also, since the Bucs don’t circulate daily transcripts from Raheem’s news conferences — the video is online — Joe finds it interesting that Yasinskas has BSPN staff feeding him every word from the NFC South coaches. What a luxury! Joe suspects Yasinskas would be more entertained by Raheem if he actually watched the head coach every day.

Joe wonders how Raheem’s entertainment value ranks among the rest of his coaching brethren.

    Raheem entertaining? He sure is unless your one of the haters(race?) around here who hate a coach for such a petty reason as sometimes speaking in a younger more urban vernacular.

  2. cjackson Says:

    can you imagine how much attention he would get if he coached the jets? no one would even be talking about rex ryan like they do if he coached the bucs

  3. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m going to take a guess that Thomas is going to chime in with his opinion.

  4. Capt.Tim Says:

    Strange how people used to try and redicule Raheem here.
    I think Raheem is a very intelligent and articulate speaker. He’s improved a lot since taking over,and now has a unique and straightfoward mannerism that’s really refreshing. As the team becomes more Dominant, Raheem will become more nationally in demand.

  5. Dean Says:

    I agree w/Capt.Tim Rah has come a long way since last year.I used to hate his press conferences, now they are quite entertaining.Of course that might be the difference between 10-6 opposed to 3-13. But he does seem more confident.

  6. MOBucs Says:

    NFL network has been showing a lot of Sound FX episodes lately and I caught one that had a lot of Raheem mic’d up. Hard not to come away impressed. Whether he’s chuckling it up with the officials or addressing the team after a game, there’s always a positive vibe coming from him. It’s no wonder why players and coaches alike think so highly of him.

  7. Guest#27 Says:

    Raheem deserves the scrutiny, he hasn’t won anything yet. No divisions, no play off games, no COTY awards, hasn’t even made it to the playoffs ad a wild card. You guys keep trying to crown someone who hasn’t done Jack sh1t most certainly have an agenda for him. 🙂

  8. MOBucs Says:

    Guest 27,

    Everyone understands that you are not a Raheem supporter. If bringing in a franchise QB and orchestrating a +7 game turnaround this season (with the yougest team in the league) doesn’t impress you, then I doubt you will ever warm to him. Of course every team’s goal is to make the playoffs, but to rebuild a team from the ground up and post a 10-6 record in the second year is remarkable.

  9. Snook Says:

    Take it from someone who lives in Atlanta. The media here IS lame. About as lame and boring as Mike Smith and Matt Ryan. Those guys are dry. No fire at all watching those two. Zzzzzzzzzz

  10. gitarlvr Says:

    I love how an idiot like Guest#27 points to a guy who finished second in coach of the year voting not winning it as a negative. But then we are talking about the same complete idiot who thinks John Abraham is a linebacker.

  11. Pete Dutcher Says:

    He won 10 games after winning only 3 the year before. That means he is improving quickly.


    since the Bucs don’t circulate daily transcripts from Raheem’s news conferences – the video is online – Joe finds it interesting that Yasinskas has BSPN staff feeding him every word from the NFC South coaches. What a luxury!

    I would imagine they do it so that he can cut and paste the content into articles as needed…trying to save him time to meet deadlines.

    Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone to do that for you? I don’t know how you manage to find the time to keep updating this website several times per day!

    Shoot, I’ve been thinking about my own personal blog, just so that I have an outlet since there are no Buccaneers.com boards. I love commenting here, but I gotta have an outlet for my own stuff as well!

  12. buckeyebob Says:

    I am a big Rah guy….don’t care how he entertains the media. How he gets judged is what the team does. All he needs to do is just keep coaching em up. He can take his act on the night show road later. Just keep coaching this young group.

  13. Capt.Tim Says:

    Guest 27- it’s Saturday night. Get out your”Gruden gone wild”tapes. Tell you mom not to bother you, and knock yourself out. The real Buc fans around here will handle the intelligent post for the night. We can live without the “town fool” post . Heck, Invite Thomas over! You boys live it up. Remember- Lil Chucky loves you!

  14. gotbbucs Says:

    guest#27, you just took over as the biggest jackass on this site. congrats, that was no small task you just accomplished.

  15. USFPete Says:

    Insult hurling is so lame. … … @PeteDutcher – I can’t figure out either how Joe pulls off this site either. Wanted to do a Bucs site myself but what’s the point now?

    The Bucs need ot do more to market Raheem

  18. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Rah is entertaining, I agree. Much of the entertainment is of the comedic variety however – his accelerated tempo of speech and misuse of words makes many of chuckle.

    This happens so frequently that the fish wraps clean up his quotes for him – thankfully Joe doesnt do that as frequently.

    FYI – the head coach is supposed to provide the entertainment – the team is. Lombardi and Bellichick aren’t entertainers, just solid, bright and dedicated leaders. I think that rah is dedeicated.

  19. thomas 2.2 Says:

    sorry I meant:

    not supposed to provide the . . .

  20. Patrick Says:

    I’m sure when the Bucs finally receive some national interest next year, Raheem’s video on his “take off your underwear and put your big boy pads on” speech will also rise in popularity

  21. MOBucs Says:

    FYI Thomas,

    When you cannot be objective or fair, you cannot be taken seriously.

  22. eric Says:

    I find Raheem endlessly entertaining.

    In Bucs lore id say Mckay was very interesting, Wyche, Gru.

    Ray Perkins had his personality surgically removed I think.

    Father Dungy, God love him, was pretty dull in the quote department (“gotta get it going”).

  23. Capt.Tim Says:

    Perkins- Uggh! Or Bennett. Both were so boring your eyes would water. Your right Eric, Father Dungy could make a great win sound so Dull it was beyond belief. MacKay was the Best! His one liners still crack me up. Wycherley and Gruden both had charisma. Raheem has an energy and Confidence that he’s developing into a great media persona. He’s especially interesting during the games, when he’s miked. Listening to him just fires you up! Makes me wanna go Gear up and hit the field! Think he’s proving to to have rare inspirational skills. Team sure believes him

  24. BigMacAttack Says:

    I think Rah should hire Cee Lo Green as his Minister of Entertainment.

  25. HIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    “– his accelerated tempo of speech and misuse of words makes many of chuckle” – Thomas 2.2

    Pot calling the kettle black, no??

    If you’re going to insult Rah’s misuse of language, learn how to proofread your own posts.

  26. tommy Says:

    guest27…..you get it now???? go get some sleep, your shift at burger king is calling….DOPE

  27. Thomas 2.2 Says:

    At hire greg! Typos happen, proofreading doesnt for me. I wasnt accusing rah of blogging without proofreading, i was pointing out that when he speaks the words he chooses arent often right for what he is intending to say.

  28. RastaMon Says:

    Raheem is maturing and growing into his role as HC…My Gawd !….he was a scary sound bite his first year….the guy accepted the bull ride and it has been remarkably pleasing to watch…

  29. Guest#27 Says:

    Radios accomplishments:

    1) 0 play off wins
    2) 0 play off appearances
    3) 0 division titles
    4) 0 second place finishes in the division
    5) losing record against teams with winning records
    6) his defenses have posted the worst ranked defenses since Leeman Bennett. Perhaps the worst ranked rush defense in Buccaneer history.
    7) never won Coach of the Year
    8) players can’t reach the pro bowl on first ballot
    9) only followers are ex-Gruden badgers
    10) failure to communicate… while putting his face on his players underwear-less body’s.

    Eric, Thomas, anymore to add to this list? I know you two haven’t crowned Radio just yet… as shouldn’t anyone else, until he wins something.

    Timmy said Raheem is going to the super bowl! LMAO at tiny timmy. 🙂

  30. Capt.Tim Says:

    Guest 27- how are you still posting? I thought you were ‘immersed’ in the Vaseline fest at Thomas 2.2 inches house?
    Yes, I did say Raheem is going to lead this team to the Superbowl. He will. Remember- I AM ALWAYS RIGHT with my predictions. I also predict, that after a weekend of Gruden worship at Tommy 2.2 inches house, you’ll be posting standing up!
    As for what you think – IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! You are never right, and have been proven to be a list making Nimrod. You are never- ever right about anything. If you had any self respect, it would have been destroyed by your foolishness here. Lucky you, you don’t.

  31. thomas 2.2 Says:

    Capt Tim as for your predictions, here are a few that I recall:

    The bucs will finish second or better in the division: wrong;
    Rah’s defense will be vastly improved wrong: wrong;
    GMC will be a huge difference maker on the D Line: wrong;
    GMC will have a better rookie year than Suh: wrong;
    Rah will be coach of the year: wrong;
    The bucs will be better than 13-19 after two years under Rah and post-Gruden: wrong.

    What I find comical is how you accuse everyone of having a lust over Gruden yet all of your posts invlove some reference to the male anatomy. There is nothing wrong with being that way Tim, just don’t beat around the bush about it – BE PROUD!

  32. Guest#27 Says:

    Good stuff Thomas.

    Timmy tugboat is a snorkeling navy seaman at heart. That’s where the lil minnow gets all his cumbacks.

    Thomas, I was about to list the QBs that the Buccaneers beat this year, but these blind radio sheep don’t take facts very well. If I recall, you made mention of the wins being against 2nd and 3rd string QBs as well. So how proud is the defense to hang their hats on all those back up QBs?

    Just Luke Warren Sapphire so bluntly said, the Bucs have a lot of work to do and a long way to go to get to the big dance.

    Not to mention, luck. But ra has plenty of that, just look at 2010s season!!! 🙂 I just hope his luck don’t run out. 8)

  33. Guest#27 Says:

    I just love smartphone spell check. Like Warren Sapp… not Sapphire LOL.

  34. Capt.Tim Says:

    You two lovebirds come up for air? Being a pair has gotvto be nice for you “guys”. Now, instead of sticking your heads up your own butts, you can park’em in each others!! Kinda like having a two car garage!
    As for my predictions, I really don’t need someone as mentally impaired as you to be my stenographer. I’d pick someone who is intelligent

  35. Capt.Tim Says:

    I know you two are trying,it’s not your fault. But even arguing with you two isn’t as much fun as usual. Almost contrived. I will be glad when some new stuff happens, so we can REALLY argue. That Damn CBA may make it a long summer for all of us. Guess we’ll just have ta keep making do, but it’s starting to feel like work. Meybe the Bucs sign that safety from the rams that just got released. That’d give us something to argue about til the draft!

  36. Capt.Tim Says:

    Guest 27- “Luke Warren Sapphire”?? What- did ya slip up and print yer stage name by accident? I can picture you belting out CHER songs, dressed in a racy Lil leather number, with a title like that. Ummp, hold on, I’m gonna be sick . . .

  37. BigMacAttack Says:

    You phucin A$$holes need to stop calling him Radio. He doesn’t like it and I don’t either. How about if I call you Dickheadcracker Guest 27 Racist POS.

    Joe, this is BS. How long do we have to put up with this $h!t. You banned our boy now punt this D bag too.

    Joe just saw this and it’s a bit after midnight. Joe deleted the comments in question. People can be critical of Raheem all they want but that’s over the line. Joe knows the poster in question and he’s been warned.

  38. BigMacAttack Says:

    Okay, I’ll play along for a moment. Why do you call him that? Who or What is it in reference to? I would say that anyone who questions a coach who just won 10 games would have an alternative agenda. And if you want to call him that, I’ll just refer to you as Dickbreath 27 in every post. How’s that, Dickbreath 27. It’s degrading and I wouldn’t expect any less from you, B-Y, Thomas or Rahdom, all in one, same Buc hating racist garbage. Your a Dickbreath Racist and I’ll call you out every chance I get until you stop. The choice is yours, Son!

    I hate it and thought Joe cleaned up this mess. I guess not now that Dickbreath 27 is back.

  39. BigMacAttack Says:

    I’m not telling any of you Haters not to question him, just don’t call my Head Coach derogatory names in Public, Dickbreath 27.

  40. thomas 2.2 Says:

    I will say this on the “radio” subject. I used it myself some when the ESPN’s Trey Wingo (I think??) called him radio. Some of you pointed out that it was being taken as referring to him as a mentally-challenged person which is insulting not only to rah but to those with challenges.

    I have refrained since from using that term because I don’t find it productive -I recommend against it.

    However, some of you are way too sensitive about criticism of the 13-19 head coach who remember is in charge of a defense that stinks. The offense and the skyrocketing QB gets credit for most of the improvement in the win column and I guess rah gets credit for not geetting jealous of Olsen and firing him too.

    But if I were Olsen I would be worried b/c Rah is very quick to shift responsiblity by blaming or firing an assistant coach. I would be much happier with Olssen as the HC and Rah as the DC / D Backs coach.

    If they miss the playoffs next year again, rah must be canned – I would be pleased with Olsen.

  41. thomas 2.2 Says:

    BigMacAttack? How is Rah your Head Coach? Are you on the roster? If so, what number?

    I know you are Gerald “the Underachiever’ McCoy, correct? How has it been watching women get assaulted out their in Cali?

  42. BigMacAttack Says:

    Because I pay his phucking salary like the rest of the season ticket holders, Junior. Put your money where your mouth is or STFU, you and Dickbreath 27. My team, My coach, Buc Fan, Hard Core, No Excuses, No BS, along with the rest of the fans that support OUR team. Your a childish little POS that really has no clue. You talk trash about OUR team as an outside Hater and I take exception. I defend the Bucs. I don’t car who the freakin coach is, as long as he is improving and giving it 110%. Rah or Chucky, I don’t care, I support the team. Bill Freakin Cowher, it doesn’t matter. I still support the team. We are stuck with the Glazer’s choices and lately they have done an awesome job. This was the most entertaining season in years. Any fan with common sense will tell you that. Unfortunately, every time the Bucs played, you had your head up your @$$ and missed the game. Pull it out and get a grip. You idiots that say Raheem sucks just don’t have clue. He kicked @$$ this year and your argument is weak and without merit. Sure he did a lousy job in 09′ but he was a rookie and he improved as the season went on.

  43. Lucas Jackson Says:

    Could anyone scream for attention louder that Thomas and Guest #27 (or any of the prior names he ahs used)? How pathetic to clamor for attention by spewing all kinds of stupidity on JBF. Not sure why anyone responds to them, other than boredom.

  44. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Great post BigMacAttack!

    “I know you are Gerald “the Underachiever’ McCoy, correct? How has it been watching women get assaulted out their in Cali?”
    Comments like this are not only ignorant, but irresponsible. Were you there? Do you know the details? It’s one thing to talk about football when you don’t know sh!t, but it’s another one entirely when you are talking about real life situations. You are criticizing his character. If you ever had the opportunity to meet GMC, you would shrivel up like the little b!tch you are and shake his hand and tell him how big of a fan you are. You don’t have the onions to say anything to his face, you coward.

  45. Capt.Tim Says:

    It’s common among Gay men. I guess they gate who they are, so they troll any kind of community post. They then take the most opposite and argumentative posistion possible. They do it repeatedly for attention- as if their failures are our Fault! There has been some articles written on it. It’s pathetic, but apparently these trolls are allowed to continue, so nobody’s feelings get hurt. Don’t ask me, I didn’t vote that way!

  46. Capt.Tim Says:

    Thomas 2. 2 inches and Guest 2.7 inches are having” continued periods of public self loathing”. It’s a scientific term to discribe being a pathetic douche bag who trolls football post.

  47. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Wow, Guest #27, I think the retard is you. First of all, this site is about the Bucs, if you haven’t noticed. It’s not about you or Thomas, even though you do everything you can to change that. You do everything you can to draw attention to yourself by spitting stupidity left and right that there is no way you could actually believe. Raheem coaches this team, and he did a fantastic job last year. You will not find one person with any expertise to disagree. We are all Bucs fans, so when you continually trash our coach (unfairly might I add) to draw attention to yourself, you get what you deserve. If we call you a name, chances are you deserve it. Calling our football coach a retard is not the same thing. I guess that’s too much for your little brain to grasp.

  48. Lucas Jackson Says:

    Guest 27 is lonely

  49. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lucas Jackson- yeah , they’re lonely. Also hateful- and with an agenda.if you read those two’s post, it becomes apparent that they really aren’t interested in football. I doubt they watch the Bucs. They are here to disrupt and irritate. The question is always- why?
    So we troll herd. If you take a few shots at’em, their real motives ussually surface.
    Used to be a really vile troll here named RahDomthebest. With the least troll herding, it became apparent that he was a major Rascist- I mean this guy was Kkk handbook bad. Thankfully, he made it so apparent , that his end was inevitable.
    Personally, I think everyone has gotten so sensitive, that it’s rediculious. Nobody can laugh at themselves anymore. It’s sad, because humor solves more issues than threats, penalties, or protest. We are truly free and equal when we all except our flaws and differences as part of life- not a means to demean each other.
    That being said- there are people who are major hate filled bastards. What ever the motive, they have an agenda to make sure no good word is said about some people on the team- sometimes ALL people on the team.
    Can’t always tell if its racism, jealousy because all players/ owners are rich, or just pathetic attention getting mechanism. Either way- you poke these apes with a sharp stick long enough, and they spill their evil Lil agenda. Once that’s done, they stop being an irritant, and become just another ignorant troll on the fire. It’s a pain, but the only way to get rid of them. We’ve been thru a few in the last 2 years.
    Besides, its slow right now. Unless the Bucs sign the Safety and CB whose name no one can pronounce, it’s dead til the combine. Troll herding is giving us something to do til it gets busy again( IF it gets busy!)

  50. m.wesley Says:

    Capt you and Lucas you are so wrong,huw can you honestly call guest27 lonley?You know damn well guest 2.7 and thomas2.2 live together.Get it right and dont make that mistake again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lol. I stand corrected. Although I can’t imagine either of them is much conversation, considering where there heads are kept.

  52. Capt.Tim Says:

    The only Bull$$it on here is the fact that you two ignorant little racist trolls post here only to be irritaing. As I described above, we know who and what you are- and you S&&k!. This post is is the same as every other post. Every one starts by commenting on the articles, only to you to Lil idiots chime in with some stupid, unrelated crap- just to launch your next stupid hatefilled tirade. If you really hate yourselfs that bad, do us a favor and hit the jump platform on the skyway. The people here are not responsible for your failed lives. And we are all pretty sick of you using this place- that we all enjoy- as a public forum to view your inadequacies as human beings. We know who and what you are. We know you don’t like yourselves, or anything else. We don’t like you either! Go see a shrink, and quit bother the normals.

  53. Capt.Tim Says:

    Let me make it even easier. 99% of the posters here don’t call people retards. They aren’t here for that. This is a place to discuss football. Passionately, heatedly even. But just football,
    The only idiots who feel the need to insult their betters is you two Lil f$&s. After hearing that repeatedly, it pisses off the normally well mannered posters into insulting you Lil cowards.
    And the ONLY reason you get away with calling any of us names, is because you hide behind the Internet to Do so. If either of you Lil sissies spoke that way to me, or Raheem, or McCoy, or the posters here like that in person, you’d be munching yer teeth like tic tacs!
    Again- you only post here to irritate. Don’t try to fake innocence when you are called out.

  54. thomas 2.1 Says:

    Listen Tim, Hawaiian, Wesley etc – I don’t frequently engage in name-calling. I have complimented Rah where I think it is deserved, I refrain from insulting him and there isn’t a racist tone to any of my comments nor my actual feelings. I don’t know Guest #27.

    It is not racist or insluting to not agree with handing Rah the job and not be thrilled with 13-19, 4th and 3rd in the division, and no playoffs in three years.

    I hated the wasteful McCoy and Price picks, and believed that McCoy was falsely sold as the messiah by the org which you sheep and the media bought hook,line and sinker. I opposed that propaganda.

    Turn your analysis inward for once: the reason most of you love 13-19 rah is b/c you hated Gruden and wanted him replaced – that is undeniable.

    Rah needs to make the playoffs and compete – until he does he is a failure in my judgment. His defense also stinks and he is responsible for that. Giving him the credit for Olson’s offense is crazy. You Gruden haters would never give Gruden any credit for Monte’s D. apply the same criteria

  55. m.wesley Says:

    You know what Thomas you are right ,I have had pretty good arguments with you over the past few months,I guess I got confused with guest 27 calling you and Eric to agree with him,so im going to apologize to you and to show my sincerity im not going to comment on your last silly statement

  56. BigMacAttack Says:

    I will.

    Galactically Stupid!!!

  57. gitarlvr Says:

    Please, Thomas is a name caller too. Eric, Thomas, and Guest#27 have all shown me, at various times, their closeted racist agendas. The bottom line is that these guys don’t believe a young black man who is young enough to have grown up amongst hip hop culture deserves to be in a position of power on the team like head coach. That is the only real reason for their hate. All the stats and other nonsense they dredge up to try and give their hate some kind of legitimate front is just that, a front. Thomas used to call Raheem radio until he realized it was offensive??? He couldn’t be more transparent if he tried. Its more like he used the name until he realized it would get him banned from sites like this and then decided to hide his little race hate in the closet. So now he just sticks with insults like calling Raheem pre-pubescent or a child or a teenager, figuring that those names sufficiently express the degree of vile hatred he has without exposing him to a ban.

  58. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Don’t pretend like you are Mr. high and mighty. First of all, I am not a Gruden hater. I cheered for this team just as much when Gruden was coach as what I do now. I didn’t cry when he was fired, because it was just his time. That means nothing as to his coaching ability, but I am a firm believer that coaches have a shelf life with one team, and his was up. I like Raheem, yes. I like his energy, and I see the direction the team is headed and I like it. If we won only 3 or 4 games again last year, I would probably feel different. However, we didn’t.

    It is really stupid on your part to say the McCoy and Price picks were wasteful. How can you say that after one year? You have an agenda against them, that is very obvious. I opposed the drafting of Freeman, but after about an hour, I was already looking online for a Freeman jersey. You go ahead and keep up all your hate on him, but I suspect you will shrivel up once he starts becoming a great player.
