Youth No Excuse For Morris

Heading into the 2009 season, the Buccaneers decided to embark on a youth movement. They overhauled the roster shipping out the older vets and brought in fresh faces throughout the organization.

The result was an inexperienced coaching staff and team that went on to have a disappointing 3-13 season.

After what looks to be another successful draft class to help build around, there is more optimism heading into general manager Mark Dominik and head coach Raheem Morris' second season.

Even though the team is the second-youngest team currently in the NFL, you won't find Morris using that as an excuse.

"You will never hear me use youth as an excuse," said Morris. "We should win games. I don't like to make excuses, period. I don't like to talk about injuries. I don't like to talk about youth. I don't like to do that. I won't do that."

Morris is putting the team on his shoulders for everyone around him, including the media.

"It is my job to win for Ronde Barber," said Morris. "It is my job to win for the ownership. It is my job to win for Mark Dominik. It is my job to win for [the media's families] or you will write bad stories about me and you will get fired too."

If the Bucs' young players don't perform, it looks like Morris won't put the blame anybody but himself.
