Every Week A Super Bowl For Rah

February 4th, 2017

Former Bucs head coach and current Falcons wide receivers coach Raheem Morris talks about how how he grew as a coach and prepares his players.

Monday during Super Bowl Opening Night (nee: Media Day) held at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Joe chatted extensively with former Bucs coach Raheem Morris, currently assistant head coach and wide receivers coach with the Dixie Chicks. Here are the final nuggets from the gracious Morris:

JoeBucsFan: How much did you grow as a coach not just moving from defense to offense but working with someone like Kyle Shanahan?

Raheem Morris: Me and “Shan” go a ways back. We both coached at the Bucs. Our careers moved along really fast. We had a lot of success. We had a chance to get back together when I was in Washington. This year, being on the same side of the ball with him was a lot of fun for me. … I think it has been a great relationship and a great match being on the same side of the ball and being able to get guys to go. It is just a great environment to be in and a fun environment to be in.

Joe: How much did it help the Falcons that the NFC South is such a tough quarterback division? A minimum of six games a year, you are facing a Pro Bowler, a former MVP and a future Hall of Famer. How much does that help you that just to win the division, you have to defend so many good quarterbacks?

Morris: For us, not to call anybody gray matter, but for us we go through a process. Every week is championship week. No matter who you play. We have been preparing [for the Super Bowl] we believe all season. We are going to approach this game just like we have approached every game single game this season. Every game is a championship week. Every game is a championship game.

    Humiliate the Patriots and bring the Hardware back to the NFC South.

    What Lakeland Buc just said with the emphasis on HUMILIATE!!!

    Hmmmm… wonder if he jumps ship with “Shan” to go try his luck in San Fran. Because Atlanta is in the playoffs, a lot of head coordinators are already off the board. Also, if Dominik does join that front office he will be another guy with ties to Rah. It’s funny because they could hand him the keys to the D and make him the d coordinator, or the offensive coordinator to work with Shan.

    Either way it seems as though it would further weaken that Atlanta staff which is a plus for the Bucs, so here’s hoping Rah gets a shot in SF.

    He still sucked as a head coach.

    And Lady GaGa will sing to him at halftime…….”Rah Rah Ru Ru Rah”

  6. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Good one Drew!!! Which is really funny for me. I went to high school with a guy named Drew and he would pop so many funnies that he became a phasrase in my High School….we would always add “funny one Drew” when someone popped a funny.

    Raheem always had a way of spewing lots of gibberish and saying nothing.

    Still had a winning season and more wins in One year than Lovie had in Two. He is gonna get another shot. I wish him luck.

    SB…I concur. Thumbs in both ears, shaking my hands and making funny faces at Bonzai.

    Raheem Morris is the living embodiment of Cobraboy’s First Law of Rhetorical Economics:”The reason ‘talk is cheap’ is because the Supply outweighs the Demand.”

    Perhaps the Bucs’ Head Coaching job is a natural introduction to be a successful assistant somewhere else.
