Friday Night Curfew Was In Place

October 12th, 2011

There’s no doubt the youngest head coach in the NFL, Raheem Morris, appears to be a loose-ship-running, arm-barring, chest-bumping, vibe-feeling, pool-partying, obscenity-tolerating guy. In other words, a players’ coach.

But Jeff Faine enlightened us yesterday on WQYK-AM 1010 in sharing that the Bucs had an enforced curfew on Friday night in San Francisco, when there would not have been a curfew in place on a typical Friday night before a Sunday home game.

So much for the loose ship, even coming off three straight wins.

As for what happened on the field, Faine said nothing related to the cross-country travel on short rest is or should be a cause for Sunday’s 48-3 beating by the 49ers.

In fact, speaking on behalf of his offensive linemates, Captain Faine liked their body of work Sunday.

“Up front, we felt pretty good about our performance to be honest with you,” Faine said.

    Sunday happens, happens to every team at some point. Now we have to see how they respond, this is a young team full of 1st and 2nd round picks, these guys have not failed very often in their athletic lives, I expect to see a much different team on the field this Sunday than we saw last. Pride itself should warrant a greater effort.

    The guy enforces a curfew and that means he is a disciplinarian in charge of his team.

    I liked it when Faine said most of the team already started watching game film on their iPads on the flight home. Shows the right kind of attitude to have coming away from a disaster like this.

    @ Jeff Faine You guys would be the only ones. You always seem to be oblivious to your clear lack of football skills.

    The o-line didn’t play badly, they just weren’t entrusted by Olson to stay with the running game consistently until it broke through. Along with the o-line, McCoy looked good until he got hurt. Other than that I find it very difficult to find anything else to like about that complete debacle of a supposed football game.
