This is what Fan Rock Bottom Feels like.
Raping, the Image of the Bucs at least as a stand up organization with a Defensive heart, Even in the worst of times, opposing offenses knew they were in a football game the next day. Not so much these days.Much like Indiana Jones was raped by Speilberg and Lucas ALA South Park...
Actually the problem isnt that Freeman stinks. He is average. He puts up good numbers just often enough to make you think he is better than he is. Bad and great are convincing. But mediocre makes you live with the delusion for too many years. He is just good enough to waste our time and not good enough to get us where we want to go.

I see the Morris's regime as just a blip on the road -
Are there any similarities between this team and the 1-15 Dallas Cowboys from 1989?
Fan rock bottom?Has the fan base hit rock bottom? How many people do you know that care about this team?If you are on this website it means you are pretty hardcore fan, especially considering the current state of the team. How much worse can it get, outside of the hardest of the hardcore fans, who cares about the Bucs? Like all you guys, I listen to all the radio stations, read all the local writers, read all the blogs, have season tickets, re-watch games on DVR and NFL Replay… Yet I’m seriously losing interest. I want them to be good, watchable, average, and RESPECTABLE. RESPECTABLE: I think this is the biggest problem, they are SO unlikeable as an organization and individuals it as alienated every casual fan. This is due to the way they behave on and off the field. When I’m at game if you look at the buccaneers sideline you can’t tell if you’re looking at a NFL Team or a pool party. I rub my eye and look for the margarita machine and Keg. Everyone is just moping around, kicking back in the seats, joking, raping, and pretty much doing everything except paying attention to a football game. Off the field… well we can’t go a more than a few months without DUI’s, Drugs, Fights, Shootings, fan beat downs, and that’s just the things we know about.I work at an office with 30 other people all who live in Tampa, The office is 10 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from Ray Jay. Other than me there is not one other person in this office that cares about the buccaneers, they don’t know the players, and don’t ever go to games. These same people chat about the Rays, and organize office Hockey outings. Some root for out of state teams for no good reason.We are the last holdouts and even the hardest of the hardcore are wavering, I know this because I AM. Besides you guys, out of hundreds of people I know and work with in the bay area, only a handful actually care about the Bucs enough to go to games or watch them on TV. Realizing that rebuilding the past 3 years has failed miserably, and nothing but a complete franchise reboot will save us may put the dagger in this thing.This is what Fan Rock Bottom Feels like.
They still have a long way to go to re-energize the Bay area. A few things that are hurting them right now:- Blackouts - the combined effect of the repeated blackouts over the last few years is that the area has lost interest. - No stars - Hopefully this changes, but right now this team has no real fan favorite stars like it did back in the days of Dunn, Alstott, Sapp, Brooks and Lynch.- Horrible coaching - Say what you will about Dungy and Gruden - most fans liked them. Raheem Morris was completely unlikeable. Maybe Schiano will gain some trust back.- Losing - Pretty self explanatory
