anything less than 9-7 is a failure
Well at least Gruden prepared you nicely with those 4-12, 5-11 and 7-9 seasons.

I will base my decision on wins and losses....anything less than 9-7 is a failure
I agree...its quite simple, the win/loss record will tell it all comes seasons end

Bring back GRUDEN!!!

The run game has been 3rd best in the league thus far this preseason, far from "anemic at best."

Take out the yardage from the QB's that won't be starting and you have "anemic at best" ;)

Defense wasn't a bright spot last game...2 50 plus yard plays

Get used to that. Our secondary is a joke right now. They will get picked on every single game.

Even when the secondary is stocked with talent, you will se more big plays than we are used to.  The scheme is built on high risk/reward, rather than containment like Monte's was.

So Gruden got 7 years (and you think he should have gotten longer) to fix those problems, and Morris only gets 7 months? Makes sense.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

5) No Griese

Had the Bucs never signed Griese I think Jon would still be here.

When you make a change, especially at HC, it's supposed to be a change for the BETTER.  They canned a 9-7 coach who's defense largely led to the teams demise.  They canned the winningest coach in Buc history.  A guy that won 3 division titles (whereas each other team in the division has only what, one each?).  They fired a guy that not only took the Bucs to the Superbowl, but built the team they beat.  

In the end, it really doesn't matter though.  No coach will be a legitimate threat with this tight azz ownership.

This defense has given up a TON of 50 yard plays in 2 pre-season games....hopefully this isn't a sign to come

Bring back GRUDEN!!!

When a HC is unable to take control of the entire team (defense included) what do you expect to happen?  The Griese/McCown situation doesn't help either and was the start of the end when that decision was made.

Hang on now...Gruden wisely left the defense to Kiffin. Of all of Gruden's flaws, the one that really seemed to hamper him was his failure to delegate authority.  He got it right with Monte, but needed an OC.    When Kiffin announced his departure with 4 games left in the season, the D fell apart.  That's a helluva blindside for a HC to deal with.  There simply wasn't time to recover. He really didn't stand a chance.  Even Monte admits he made a mistake in doing what he did.

The ownership fired Tony Dungy because they thought somebody else could do a better job coaching his team. Jon Gruden provided immediate results. They fired Jon Gruden because they thought somebody else could do a better job building a team. That's not going to happen overnight.
