Maybe's it's because he's out of excuses. Got the coaches he wants, playing the defense he wants, drafted the players he wants and what appears on paper to be a soft schedule. If the team sputters, then he's the one that will pay for it.

He said he never got a pamphlet on how to coach.

He starts every press conference with "Well, we have a lot of key starters injured". Oh, wait........nevermind......wrong head coach.

If we win 3 games again, it's no excuse. But you can't expect more than 6 or 7 wins with the talent we have. I'm no fan of Morris either.

I fully support Morris because he is our head coach BUT he could never have used youth as an excuse because "THE PLAN" we've been told about for the past two off-seasons has been to put the focus on youth.

Turn the page.

Dont know how any real bucs fan cant root for the guy to succeed. If he succeeds the Bucs succeed. Its that simple.

I love Raheem as coach.  Made some bad rookie coaching mistakes last year.  I imagine he will not make them again this year.  Plus it seems like he is a players coach, so they will give their all for him.

Oh I cheer for the Bucs and so I want Morris to do well because that means the Bucs are doing well. Last year I hated the fact that I just didn't care on Sundays and would rather do stuff around the house than watch the Bucs it was that frustrating. I'm just saying if the team doesn't perform immensely better than last year -- barring injuries -- Morris won't have any excuses to beg for another year. He should be out.

It's like comparing apples and oranges. Gruden had his foul-ups and so does Rah.

Grudens biggest problems were not making a season-to-season winning team and and sometimes player management outside of the game. Regardless, the man helped bring Tampa a SB and should be commended for this accomplishment.

Rah is just trying to have a winning season. He believes in youth and long-term success... and chest-bumps. However, there could very well be a future for him in Tampa. Good picks and great defensive coaching could get him to the big-game one day. If he figures out how to manage games more efficiently, combined with the new talent coming in, it could mean very good things for the Bucs.


Either one has their bright sides, but as of right now, Gru was obviously the superior HC. Until Rah wins a SB, or at least a playoff game, that's where it stands. This season it's completely possible to make Playoffs imo. I'm not fighting history, and IF history IS right once again (with this team) I'll never doubt again. Problem is, when it's time to question Rah, how much credit do we give him? Keeping him here because the "worst to first" history held true once again seems like a major catch 22.

I think you'd have to keep him around. No other choice after that really.

A lot of Gruden's success was that he had Monte running the defense.  Gru could focus on getting things done on offense, but the D still carried those successful teams. 

I like that Olsen is having a full training camp and last year's experience to make things happen on the O side of the ball.  Always some growing pains with young and inexperienced men.

If you are not a Raheem Morris fan I detect an agenda.  They guy was given a sinking ship and he is turning it around with youth quickly.  Regardless of some of the things I have read, we are the youngest team in the NFL.  We will double our wins over the next two years.  6 wins this season and 12 next year. Raheem is passionate, makes hard fast decisions and lives with them.  This team is heading in the right direction, I hope a running back steps up this year - if so, we could have a nice season, our D will be vastly improved.  Raheem will convert some folks this year I am certain of it.

I think we'd have to be worse than last year for Raheem to get fired...and I'm not sure that is even possible. I guess we could always go 0-16, but it would be pretty hard to be worse than last year.

I think the most likely scenerio this year is we show improvement on both sides of the ball, improvement in game planning and play calling, and win between 4 and 8 games. Then Raheem will get his 3rd year to show something real. If we don't win atleast 10 games in 2011...then I think he gets axed.

I know it has never been done before and due to ego it would be highly unlikely, but I wonder if it's even a possibility that Rah would consider staying on as defensive coordinator if it just doesn't work out as HC. It would probably cause too many uneasy situations between he and the new coach to ever work.

Draft Aaron Donald

I hope Morris remembers that after this season when he has another losing seasom.

Gas $4 a gallon, Thank you all who voted for the Socialist.
