We all are pretty much at that same point, which can be best verbalized in 2 words "ABANDON SHIP!!!!!!"  I tried my best to stay upbeat and positive, I've called PR my home for about a year and many can attest to that fact, but after the first 5 games...I can no longer deny how soft our team is.  We've amassed 3 wins, yet somehow 2 of them felt fraudulent, and in our 2 losses we got completely destroyed and exposed.  Of course I'll still root and cheer, and pray every night that the team gets better, but...

I'm at that point where I now see that Morris has a goal in mind for our team, yet has no idea on how to really get there.  He sees the end result, but not the way.He seems to emphasize this "creative" defensive scheme, and can't accept that it doesn't really work ON THE FIELD even though it looks great on paper (see 3-3-5).

Dom, I think, has done a good job even though his hands are more than likely tied behind his back, and gets pennies for an allowance to spend on players.

I could go on and on and on, but I've got some errands to run right now.  Maybe I'll be on later and ramble some more.

What are you upset about? We went 3-13 all of last year, and are already 3-2. Yes, the losses were ugly and we aren't playoff bound. But who in their right minds thought we were a playoff team anyways?

I'm thinking the three early wins have made some of you forget this is still a rebuilding team. There's some young talented players scattered across the roster, but there's a lot of holes. I'm not sure you could really expect more than what we have gotten out of this roster this year.

I think that the most depressing thing that comes to mind is when I ask myself; "If we played either the Bengals or the Browns this coming weekend all over again, would we win, lose, or get DESTROYED?"  I think we all know the answer to that.  The cats outta the bag now, and while we have some good pieces at QB, WR, and TE our other problems are just SOOO huge that they are unbelievable.  Its like a boxer with only one arm, and now we can't hide it anymore.

Who knows what would happen if we played the Bengals or Browns again? Every game is different. If you recall, we were blown out by the Saints in Tampa last year but went on to beat them in their house later in the year. If you had two teams play each other ten times, you would see a different game every time.

It's obvious this team has HUGE holes such as running the ball, stopping the run,  and giving up big plays down the field. But I think these are things we all knew we would struggle with. It's not like this is some new discovery revealed in one game. These ugly losses shouldn't upset you so badly, it's something we all knew we would have to deal with throughout the year.

I think we are still going to struggle a lot this year, but we will still get impressive wins from Freeman and getting picks. Im starting to wonder if Raheem can coach at this level. Only because our defense has not gotten any better at stopping the run. They are still letting up big plays. There is still no pass rush. I want to think it will get better with better players but thats like 5-6 months from now. If theres no improvement in these areas soon and especially next season then Morris has to go.

It's a legitimate question. It's quite possible that we keep Dominik, but go after an older more experienced coach. Leslie Frazier, D-coordinator for the Vikes, anyone?

Casinoace, you need help.  Please get off the board and check in at the nearest mental health center.  Saying, "go kill yourself", is buillying and abusive.  That is not what a message board is for.

If you go kill yourself cause some dude on a fansite message board said you should, then you were a complete moron. Good riddance.

We have two rookie DTs, a 2nd year DT, and a bunch of no name inexperienced DEs. What exactly were you expecting? We have some great young players to be excited about and we have done some great things so far this year. We also have some horrible things that are hard to watch. We are rebuilding. It's part of the process. If you bought into the hype and thought we were going to win more than 7 or 8 games this year, then that's your bad.

We are the 2nd youngest team in the league in the second year of a total rebuild. We are 3-2 with an amazing franchise QB and a stud WR. If that's not enough for you....then piss off. We don't need fake a$$ fans like you anyways. Go cry somewhere else.

I've been talking with some buddies of mine who are big time Buc fans too and they are sick of Raheem mostly.  One of them even said he doesn't think Raheem is better than his nephew's pew-wee football head coach.  Another said all Raheem wants to do is shuck and jive out there with the players.  I don't know, but it's not working.

Please people calm down...WE ARE 3-2!!!  Say it out loud so you can hear it 3-2!!!!  I don't understand why posters can a kick out of the BUCS losing.  Really worst than a pee-wee coach LMAO.  I agree with JDOUBLE we don't need you fake A$$ racist fans.  Kick rocks.

What does kick rocks mean?  That sounds like something Raheem would say.  Are you Raheem?  I thought maybe you were.  You said 'We' when referring to the Bucs record.
