Tom Coughlin Calls For Raheem

January 8th, 2015

raheemsmileThe ol’ ball coach, Raheem Morris, got an important phone call from the elder statesman of NFL coaches, two-time Super Bowl winner Tom Coughlin.

Coughlin wants to interview Raheem for the Giants’ vacant defensive coordinator position, per BSPN.

Since getting canned in Tampa after the great collapse of 2011, Raheem ran off to the Redskins to coach their defensive backs for the past three seasons. He was well regarded in that role, and it’s pretty impressive when a guy like Coughlin comes calling.

Of course, Coughlin is a tough guy, so Joe suspects Raheem will share how became a tough guy, too, after mean kids said his grandma ran like a bulldog, and following daily childhood beatings by his three uncles.

Good luck, Rah!

Joe can only imagine what a media circus Raheem’s often wacky news conferences would become in New York, “and things of that nature.”

    Raheem will do a good job. he corrected problems with the bucs defense when he had to fire the D-coordinator in tampa. he then ran the defense with very little talent. I think if Raheem had the checkbook to spend like lovie he would have had a much better record this past year.

    Haha, funny joke. Oh, you’re not joking. #HasCoughlinLostHisMind

  3. Supersam Says:

    Haha “things of that nature” I like that Joe, I also would laugh out loud when he would say ” you gotta be your best self” hahaha!

  4. BucNears Says:

    That’s hilarious. I don’t believe the Redskins secondary has improved under his watch and how come he’s never been interviewed for the D coordinat before now. Last I check Biggers is still on their roster.

  5. Eric Says:

    Good for him, I hope he gets hired.

    People put way too much stock in coaching. Case in point Mike Shula. Give the man Cam Newton and a strong running game and he suddenly is a good coach.

    Look at John Fox with Manning.

    port richey george,

    I agree with you. If Raheem would have been supported more by the glazers checkbook he might have been ok.

    I am sure he will do well in New York.

    You got to play hard, fast, smart, and consistent, and not be a mental midget. Or something like that.

    Eric……………..John Fox took and expansion team to a 7 and 9 record, (Best record in history for a franchise team) Then went 12 and 4 the next year. Then he took them to a SB 5 yrs later.
    Fox is a good coach

  9. OAR Says:

    I hope you’re not really implying John Fox is not a good coach? Don’t forget he got to the Super Bowl with some guy who loves horses named Jake Delhomme. Plus, he got pretty far with Tebow too.

  10. OAR Says:

    As for Raheem, I can’t believe anybody on that Washington defensive staff would be getting any form promotion!
    BTW it would not have mattered about the spending, he was horrible as head coach!!!

    I have always been a huge Raheem fan. Both he and Schiano got a raw deal from the Glazers but especially Raheem.

    He got the job because the Glazers had overleveraged themselves(easy for we fans to say they ended up making more than a billion) on the Man U deal.

    They couldn’t afford a coach and they couldn’t afford players and Raheem got the short of the stick talent wise.

    This is not to absolve Raheem of any wrongdoing. I think his primary mistake was trying to be buddies with the players. Because he was already too young, lacking in actual qualifications and everybody knew he got the job because the Glazers were in their desperately cheap mode at that point.
    Combine all of that with his youth and his need to be buds with his players and he lost their respect.

    Hopefully Raheem learned from that experience! He’s older and more mature now, with more experience behind him.

    I think he can become one of the great young DC’s in the league.

    Go Raheem!!!

    Geez hasn’t the Redskins secondary ranked 30th a couple years ago and in the 20’s last year? Not sure what incriminating evidence Raheem must have on Goodell, but I’m not sure how his performance as a secondary coach in Washington warrants getting even an interview for DC job?

  14. ddneast Says:

    Eric, John a Fox is an excellent coach who took the Panthers to the Super Bowl where they lost in the least minute of the game by a winning field goal. He did it with the franchise QB named Jake Delhome. Don’t speak so quickly.
    As for Raheem, he hasn’t done any wonders with DC’s defensive backs who got torched by the Bucs.
    I wish him no ill will but 95 percent of his draft picks were garbage and even a first time supervisor knows you can’t be a boss and a buddy at the same time.
    Ohh, and thanks for hanging the very brittle Josh Freeman on us.

  15. Eric Says:

    John Fox is a solid coach.

    But surely having Manning is currently helping him.

    Getting a lot more talented players is more important than the assistant coaches IMO. Not that the assistant coaches aren’t important.

    Hopefully we have a great draft.

  16. Patrickbucs Says:

    Good coach or not the Redskins secondary has been awful since he’s been there. Maybe he gets it and does fine but his track record isn’t stellar.

  17. Buc'n Enough Says:

    According to RAH…
    “Be your very best self!”

  18. Greg Schiano Says:

    LMFAO!!! “Radio” Raheem Morris is greatly suited to that 30th ranked defense in New York! Why not send Lovie to the Giants? Raheem is simply Lovie with hair!

    All I keep flashing back to is Radio’s first press conference when that book fell out of his back pocket….yellow and black…..titled “Football for Dummies!!”

    Give me a freakin break. When is Team Glazer going to hire a real HC??

  19. Waterboy Says:

    Raheem might be an interesting hire if he gets the job. He got bashed a lot by the media and fans down there but he was the sacrificial lamb during the rebuilding stage and still managed to produce a 10-5 season. He had the youngest roster in the league and I personally think the nfl lockout hurt the off-season development of his players the season that he was fired.

  20. Waterboy Says:

    BTW you can’t necessarily just look at the ranking of the secondary to determine how good the coach is. You have to look at the talent that they have at the position and also how much pressure the LB’s and front 4 puts on the issuing QB’s. Revis would be awful in coverage if the QB has all day to wait on the WR to get open.

  21. Waterboy Says:

    *opposing qb’s*

  22. Eric Says:

    Glad to see Greg Schiano commenting on here. I guess he has the time since no one is calling him for interviews……

  23. Rob Says:

    This is the career trajectory Morris SHOULD have taken. Get real solid as a position coach, become a DC, then eventually after a few successful years at that become a HC.

    The Glazers didn’t do this guy a favor by making him an inexperienced, 32 year old head coach. He never had a chance.

  24. mac Says:

    I was impressed with Raheem Morris while he was our defensive coordinator… His defenses played at a high level with a bunch of low level players… I think he will do well at DC and I hope he gets a chance in NY…

    Good luck Rah!

  25. OAR Says:

    “His defense played at a high level” WTF….I guess you forgot his defense was ranked last 32nd in pts and 30th in yds his last year as head coach!

    Fox is a good coach
    ——————————————————————————————GatrBuc17 you are incorrect. You are confusing John Fox with another coach who started off with Carolina.. Let me help with a history lesson:
    Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dom Capers was named the first head coach of the Panthers.They then not long after fired him and hired George Seifert to replace Capers. Then John Fox was hired some years later once they came to NFC South. Then Fox was fired and hired Riverboat Ron Rivera. So Dom Capers let them to that first year record and so on. Fox did take them to a Super Bowl (SpyGate Loss!) and then some years later went to Denver and has Manning. But remember he had Tebow! 🙂

  27. Lovie equals 2015 Blackouts Says:

    Actually… his resume is starting to look better if he lands this job.

    I would love to see a more mature Raheem Morris. Lets see how he is acting when he reaches 40 years old.

  28. lion Says:

    I was wondering when he would finally get his shot at DC. I always thought that he would make an above average defensive coordinator. Good for him..

  29. lion Says:

    Mac: You were impressed when Raheem Morris was our DC? Haha, sorry but that made me chuckle. I guess you can’t really mess up being a defensive coordinator when you only hold that title for 3 days or whatever that it was and never had to coach a single game or player as a DC.

  30. mikeh Says:

    giants can have him! I wonder if morris finally grew up!

  31. yansen Says:

    Best of luck Rah, always liked you. I bet he does well.

    Raheem became head coach at age 33. WTF am I doing wrong.
