Raheem Gives Bucs New Mantra: “Yangry”

December 13th, 2011

Before Joe gets into this, Joe must reiterate what he has in years past, that Raheem Morris shows a lot of manhood to step on live radio for his weekly primetime coach’s show and take calls from fans each week. Few NFL coaches have the stomach for it.

Father Dungy did, even doing live remotes at local bars. Jon Gruden wanted no part of fans.

Sure, the Buccaneers Radio Network heavily screens callers, but it’s still tough duty and tough questions make it through.

A loving caller yesterday on WDAE-AM 620 asked Raheem about reaching his players so they’ll play to their potential. Raheem responded saying Bucs fans have a lot to look forward to and gave his team a new adjective, which added to the team’s special vocabularly.

Fan caller: … How do you motivate your team this week to come out and play 100 percent tough, physical, cerebral and matchup against Dallas and bring pride back to the Tampa Bay community? … I support you fully and I believe in you and I believe in our team. I just think we’re underachiveing and if we can just reach our players and make them come out to play physical, play tough, play up to their potential, I think we can give Dallas all they can handle. What say you coach?

Raheem Morris: I have to agree with you. You know, I don’t want to make Dallas out to be this monster that they’re not. They’re a good football team but they don’t [instill] any fear [in] my guys. So when you go play guys like this and go play teams that are good football teams, you want to go play them. And it’s about the motivation, and playing physical and being cerebral, and being tough, like you mentioned.

You know, our fans got a lot to look forward to. We’ve got a bunch of young guys that are angry, that are upset, and, you know, I guess you can call us yangry right now, you know, because we’re not in a position that we want to be in. So we gotta go take it out on somebody. It just so happens that Dallas is up next.

Later in The Raheem Morris Show, the head coach used the “yangry” term again.

Joe’s going to hold Raheem to the comment that Bucs fans “got a lot to look forward to.” Obviously, Raheem believes the Bucs can turn things around in a hurry and excite fans. Great. Let’s see it, coach.

    I think they are “yawful”

    It’s embarrassing that our coach is STILL talking about getting back to “fundamentals” after 13 games in an NFL season…each weekly press conference is the same…shameful

  2. bucfanlostiniowa Says:

    Yangry?Seriously,who can still identify with this coach and his babytalk?

  6. stevek Says:

    We stink, and we are going to get destroyed on Saturday Night. Are we going to give up 40 unanswered points again?

    For the love of God, put this guy out of his misery! He’s a yidiot, yoron, yuffoon, yueless, yumb!

  9. Chiman Says:

    Trying to blend how I feel as a fan, miserable and ripped off. Can’t come up with a word.

  10. TheProsUseAdvoCare Says:

    Everyone loved his “yungry” term when we were winning. People are so up and down about this team.

  11. Ian P. Says:

    “They’re a good football team but they don’t [instill] any fear [in] my guys.”
    If that’s true, then the coaching staff hasn’t done their job. Frankly, I’m a bit disappointed to hear that from Coach.

  12. BucForce Says:

    Soon he will be yunemployed, Happy New Years Bucs fans!

  13. Meh Says:

    They yuck ass.

    – You better believe it. We aren’t up and down as fans, the Bucs are up and down. We were 4-2, havent won since October. Gave up 42 points unanswered last week to another rookie.

    We had aspirations to win the division, and now we are the worst team in the division.

    Our owners don’t give a hoot either, if they did this team would have had: Darren Sproles, Jonathan Joseph, and possibly Doug Free.

    Our Coach is just not ready to be a head coach. This team looks disinterested, and uninspired.

    IMO, Rah has got to go, the Bucs need to start over again. We need a Coach that is going to bring back the Buc D.

  15. Meh Says:

    Ian, I agree with you. Why is he giving the Cowboys bulletin board material? Aren’t having enough problems trying to get a win without adding to it?

  16. NashVegas Ryan Says:

    Hey Glazers, the Buc fans are Yangry!!! That is why “the fans” stadium is half empty.

  17. D-Rome Says:


  18. Jake Says:

    What a “yidiot”!

  19. Crotch McGee Says:

    “Grey Matter: Grey matter is made up of neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control, sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, and speech.”

    Makes sense Rah. Clearly we have no use for grey matter because it’s grey and doesn’t matter.

  20. Tom Says:

    Was able to listen for about 30 seconds. Talk about screening the calls….pablum puking callers selected to praise Raheem. It’s simply awful. And Morris regurgitates the same old same old, he’s a talking robot.

  21. Fire Rah! Says:

    Just Yathetic.

  22. flmike Says:

    Please get off the Sproles and Free meme, Darren Sproles told his agent there were only TWO teams he wanted to talk to, the Saints and the Eagles, no one else was even considered by Sproles, he wanted to either play with Brees who he knew from their days training in SD together, or his friend Mike Vick, the Bucs had ABSOLUTELY no chance to sign him. Doug Free, really? Dallas over paid as usual and he’ll be gone as soon as Jerry gets bored with him. Granted we might have had a chance at Joseph, but we didn’t.

  23. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Oh boy is it going to be YUGLY on Saturday Night in front of a national audience.

    Not sure the Yucs defense can stop Demarco Murray right now and unless I am wrong, Murray fractured his ankle Sunday night.

    Cowgirls (Felix Jones) 28 – Yucs (Barth) 3.

    Ware gets the Sack record Saturday night.

  24. stevek Says:

    flmike, Thanks for the enlightenment. We still should have grabbed Jonathan Joseph.

    My point is, the Bucs are yerrible and yucking brutal to watch.

  25. Bucnjim Says:

    I have yet to ever see this team play angry! They played solid against the Packers, but still lacked that punch. Unfortunately; this team is looking more and more like a finesse team. Once they get smacked in the mouth a couple times they fold like a lawn chair. You can rewind any loss you’d like and pick out the exact moment the opposing team Kicked them in the A$$ and sent them home to mama. This team had better find themselves a drill Sergeant quick before the Bucs turn into the softest team in the NFL. Nothing is worse than to be called a finesse team, but that is the direction they are taking.

  26. BucForce Says:

    OK lets’ get serious here. Forget that this is a football team we are talking about. To the Glazers, it is a business, plain and simple. And if I were the owners of a business worth multi millions of dollars, that is competing with 31 other businesses, is Raheem Morris the CEO you want being the public face of your business? I am talking about the strange lingo and off the wall comments he makes in public that reflects on your business. Wouldn’t you want someone running your business that reflects your beliefs and is able to communicate to the stockholders (STHs) what the business is trying to accomplish? Someone who has a solid business plan and who shows steady progress to reach corporate goals?

  27. bucfanjeff Says:

    Raheem stays on as coach but there will be staff changes. Right or wrong, expect it.

  28. OAR Says:

    Maybe he should concentrate on the real aspects football and not all these hip/new age made-up terms for his football team!
    He sounds like a yigh school coach!
    Fire Yaheem!

  29. Nick2 Says:

    Here is another word for Raheem “YUNEMPLOYED!”

  30. Hillbilly Heaven Says:

    This guy just doesn’t get it….”youngry” may have been stupid but acceptable in the pre-season but “yangry” it is just plain stupid.

    We need a professional coaching this team (obviously)
    This has gone from bad to embarassing

  31. eric Says:

    I have no idea why anybody points to the last three games as having any meaning. If they happen to win a couple, wouldnt that indicate the seven game swoon shouldn’t have happened in the first place? If they don’t its more of the same.

    We have been out of the playoff chase for several weeks, realistically. Season is a disaster no matter what they do at this point.

    Last two coaches were fired after reaching the playoffs, and a winning season. Heck, even Sam had a 7-9 mark when he was let go. Started 5-2 as I recall.

    Plenty of eveidence to base a decision. Exhibit one is 30th ranked defense led by alleged defensive oriented coach, horrific starts since he took over, minus 138 point differential, etc. etc. etc.

    That being said, i expect the Glazer boys to bring him back and this time conveniently ignore the will of the stockholders.

  32. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    I think you hit the nail on the head BucForce.

  33. sandbagrudy Says:

    where are the global gorillas now who’s buying this product ? I think it’s time to occupy 1 Buc drag those tight wads out of the building and demand they put premier players on the roster. Fire them cannons yeah right they have been shooting dust up the ass of the fans for five years.

  34. eric Says:

    Rah shows a lot of manhood for appearing on that radio show? Joe, are you kidding me?

    Every call they take is exactly the same:

    “Coach Morris we all think your doing a great Job and we love you……………..how are you going to turn things around?”

    Last two shows had fans calling giving him a “group hug”.

    And the blistering questions from TJ Rives are legendary!

  35. Nick2 Says:

    BucfanJeff if your right then the Glazers are less intelligent than I thought they were. There is money to be made with concessions, team apparel, gate receipts that just aren’t going to come with Raheem Morris in charge. Every game he is head coach is lost revenue dollars for the Glazers and thats all they care about.

  36. Adam Says:

    I was talking to a friend at the hockey game last night and we have concluded that “youngry” is going to be part of the lexicon from now on to describe a listless, lifeless, dull sports team. For example, last night the Lightning looked very youngry in the second period against the Devils.

    Morris is now a punch line in the history of the Bucs. In 10 years we will be mocking “youngry” the same way Bucs fans mock “five-dash-two.”

  37. Greg Says:

    @ Bucnjim

    We do have a drill sergeant on the team, SGT Winslow remember?

  38. Snook Says:

    Is there a bigger bag of wind than Raheem Morris?

    I’ve never seen someone so full of shiz.

    “Our fans have a lot to look forward to?” Uhhhhhh, like what? I don’t see any players that are angry or upset. This is a team that has no discipline that is led by a horrible leader and it shows.

    Dallas is going to massacre the Bucs on Saturday night. I’m looking “forward to” not watching it.

  39. Snook Says:

    Raheem should run for office after he’s done in Tampa.

    He’s a perfect politician:


  40. gotbbucs Says:

    holy sh!t. the more this guy talks the worse he makes it on himself. if he had any brains and respect for ownership he would lock himself in a room full of game film with his “team leaders” and figure something out. he is a melting pot of nonsense talk.

  41. AtlBucsFan Says:

    My preference would be to let Raheem go however, we’ve seen the Glazers insist in changing coaches below the HC position. Remember Dungy had to replace Mike Shula, it was not his preference. If they keep Raheem they need to add stronger OC and DC and supporting casts. The problem they’ll have is what quality coach would want to work for Raheem? If they find an excellent and willing OC and DC you can bet they will make promises as to their future within the organization. It’s just a bad situation all around. My overall concern is for the players, as inexperienced as they are. They need leadership like children need direction from the parents. Building a foundation around these young players demands a coach that is in control and expects excellence, commitment, and effort. A coach that demands professional behavior at all times and will impose consequences when those lines are crossed. Raheem has lost that opportunity and I don’t think he can re-capture it.

  42. gotbbucs Says:

    if nothing else, raheem would probably do a fine job as a voice over for “charlie brown’s” teacher.

  43. Bucnjim Says:

    You right; we have Sergeant Schultz running the show along with Colonel Klink. I see nothing……..That’s a little old school for most of you guys!

  44. Bobby Says:

    @Bucforce….the fans are NOT the ‘stockholders’…they are the ‘fans’ and usually piss poor ones at that. They got no support at 10-6 last year and they get no support at 4-9 this year…what else is new?? The Jaguars had the stadium sold out when they played us and they were a 3 win team at that point. Think maybe the fan support had a little to do with the win?? My guess is….some. My God, if the Glazers listened to the fans to make all their decisions we’d have a team made up of overpriced FA’s that gave their best years to another team that didn’t think they were worth the money they are asking for now. Ask the Eagles how that is working out for them…but wait! The Bucs ‘fans’ want them to bring in Andy Reid!! Of course! He’s the answer because he took the dream team to the superbowl didn’t he??? He didn’t??!!?? But….weren’t they the dream team???? Isn’t coaching always the answer??? Sometimes time is the answer and that is something the average fan just doesn’t have the stomach for. Then again…the average ‘fan’ isn’t a billionaire that owns a football team either and would have no clue how to run any business let alone an NFL organization but they get to do it at sites like this by telling the world ‘what they would do if they were the owners’ or ‘if they were the coach’ etc. OOOOOKKKKKKK. Right.

  45. Bucs55 Says:

    I alsot think raheem stays for 2012 I just think he gets a whole new staff defenetly a def. Coordinater and he fires olsen cause,hes just plain bad at been a off coordinater I also think they get in the free agency market this,year to make it interesting for the bucs fans I see a big move happenin in tye free agency in 2012 maybe deshawn jackson or landry we need the speed and the physical presence

  46. Nick2 Says:

    Bobby the Jaguars used a gimmick to get fans in the stadium. Buc fans are just an intelligent bunch who will not support the current ownership until they decide they would like to invest in their product the way the other 32 owners have. Its like the difference between buying a Honda and a Yugo. One has effort and money invested to make it better the other just slapped together with little financing. Bobby you are not an expert anymore than the average fans you rail on but from the dribble you put out I am guessing you want to keep Raheem which the average gorilla would know is plain stupid. Raheem needs to go!!!!!! Just a stupid average fans opinion who pays the salary for Raheem by watching the garbage games on TV and going to the stadium when I want to waste money

  47. lightningbuc Says:


    You’re a buffoon. Did you watch the game? There were thousands of empty seats in Jacksoville. And they also have tarped over almost 9,000 seats so as to avoid blackouts. Their fans had nothing to do with the win. The reason the Jaguars won is because they were playing a dreadful team which is dreadfully coached. So if the product on the field is piss poor, the coaching is piss poor, and the ownership is piss poor those of us who pay good money to go to games are just supposed to grin and bear it? Why would any of the “piss poor” fans be dumb enough to continue watching that crap. Put your rose colored glasses on and feel free.

  48. Bucnjim Says:


    I agree and the Jag’s couldn’t even put 30,000 in that stadium. That place was a ghost town!

  49. thomas 2.2 Says:

    The extent of this guy’s capability to prepare his team and remedy problems is to put a Y in front of adjectives to create cute words.

  50. eric Says:

    Lets see, if the Cowboys win its a 8-16 record for Rah and the gang at home.

    I know everybody hated Jon Gruden but his record at home was 34-22, including 12-4 his last two seasons.

    Nah, that cant have anything to do with attendance. What was I thinking.

    Product on the field is irrelevant.

  51. Jimmy Says:

    “The extent of this guy’s capability to prepare his team and remedy problems is to put a Y in front of adjectives to create cute words.”

    Shoulda took that high school gig 15 years ago.

  52. Brandon Says:

    No, the new word is FANGRY. As in the fan base is effing angry at the product on the field.

  53. Bobby Says:

    @lightningbuc….so what was the excuse last year genius?? 10-6 just not good enough for all the ‘loyal bucs fans’ or were you disappointed they didn’t make the Super Bowl and just saving your money for those tickets??? Moron… You know I’m right about the fans in Tampa and the Rays and Bucs prove it. They both put winning teams on the field last year and no one showed up. That isn’t even ‘fair weather fans’ that’s just lousy fans.

  54. NickinMelbourne Says:

    Bobby you are the moron. 10-6?????? Against below 500 teams and 4 or 5 last minute comebacks which Freeman couldn’t pull out this year. Bobby you must be from Boston where the fans are the “best in the world.” Everyone knew last year that this team was a fluke since Raheem the Dream was in the drivers seat. I see that you would like to fire all of the coordinators but keep the chief in charge??? Please Bobby don’t waste our time with that garbage. Yes you could bring in some quality coaches to prop up the joke of a head coach we now have but you won’t get any more fans in the seats because fans want to see MONEY spent before they spend their own. Lowest payroll in the league year after year. Go figure you get what you pay for and the Glazers have paid as little as possible. Bobby you are the Moron for drinking the Raheem koolaid and think this guy should be retained!! FIRE RAHEEM!!!!!

  55. Bobby Says:

    @NickinMelbourne….everyone knew last years team was a fluke??? Really. Sure they did clueless. THAT’S the reason the games didn’t sell out…because everyone knew they were a fluke. And yet as stupid as it sounds (oh…and it DOES sound stupid) YOU expected them to win this year with a much tougher schedule and an even younger roster! Your actually upset because they are 4-9. And I’M the moron…..?? Where is that bottle at……

  56. Bucnjim Says:

    It’s not the losing; it’s how they are losing. The Panther’s are losing this year, but everyone would agree they are a much improved team. The Coach has lost this team and it shows by the effort they give on the field. Seven turnovers and nine penalties are a product of an undisciplined team that lacks focus. That is the head coaches job!

  57. Bobby Says:

    @Bucnjim…I’m not arguing they’re losing and losing ugly. What I’m arguing is these fools that say that the reason the stadium isn’t selling out is ‘because they are losing’. That is total BS. If they didn’t sell out at 10-6 they ain’t gonna sell out. They were exciting to watch last year with a much improved offense and all the 4th quarter comebacks. We took Atlanta to the wire twice and beat New Orleans once. Yet….no sellouts. Of course boy genius NickinMelbourne says that’s because everyone knew the Bucs were a fluke last year. He and everyone else was just waiting for this year. Of course they were…….

  58. NickinMelbourne Says:

    Bobby no I did not expect a winning season because I knew the day they hired Raheem Morris he was not qualified to be an NFL coach and the last 3 years have just substantiated my point. The only bright spot was that there is some talent on this team so basically an inflatable doll could coach us to the 4 wins we now have. This coach is terrible. So Bobby I guess you think the dink and dunk is exciting. You might want to go watch an amatuer golf tournament or paint dry thats a little more on the exciting side but probably above your mental aptitude. Go back to drinking your Koolaid Mr. Clueless…….

  59. Bobby Says:

    @NickinMelbourne…dude quit dodging. This year is dink and dunk, that’s not what last year was. Your point was that last year didn’t sell out because ‘everyone’ knew that the team was a fluke. I’m saying you’re full of *@#% for making up a lame excuse like that. Last year Morris was up for coach of the year honors…that doesn’t sound like everyone was on your bandwagon Nick. I remember the excitement leading up to this season and although most didn’t expect the playoffs…noone was calling for a new head coach. As a matter of fact, most were eating crow from doubting the prior year. You know…the typical sea-saw fan crap that goes on from year to year. If anybody knows about that Nick…you should.

  60. NickinMelbourne Says:

    Bobby read my original post. The fans will come back when the Glazers decide to be committed to winning and not just making money. They need to buy a REAL HEAD COACH, hire a REAL GM and get some REAL FREE AGENTS. And before you say oh yeah you want the Dream Team like the Eagles got?? Noooooo….. I want a few veteran leaders on this team. Quality players but not every free agent in the book. The Glazers are cheap plain and simple. Why should fans buy tickets if the Glazers won’t buy a decent Head Coach and GM???? So if you think the fans are terrible in Tampa why did they sell out during the Dungy/Gruden era?? Because at that time the Glazers were committed to winning and put their money where their mouth is. That is no longer the case.

  61. L.J. Says:

    Well, I can tell you that I am “FANGRY” and I am sick of the Culverhouse reborn Glazers and how they have nickel and dimed this football team. Sorry we are not the English soccer team, but the Bucs are important to us!!! I have been a season ticket holder since 1980 and if I do not see something change this off season, this will be my last season spending money on the reborn YUCS!!!!

  62. Patrick Says:

    Raheem is such a yumberrasment as a coach.

  63. BigMacAttack Says:

    What a bunch of witty and funny comments. Great job guys. Yes!
