Morris Undecided On Lee & Trueblood At Right Tackle

The battle between Jeremy Trueblood and James Lee for the starting right tackle position is still on going according to head coach Raheem Morris. Trueblood, who was the Bucs second-round pick in 2007, had a streak of 67 consecutive starts at the position before going down with a knee injury against the St. Louis Rams back in Week 7.

Since then the 6-foot-4, 305-pound Lee has been the starter and has played well while in the lineup. Even though Trueblood has been healthy enough to be active on game days for the last few weeks, he has not been able to get on the field.

Against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Morris says that he is still undecided on who will get the start.

“You know, I have to go look at the tape right now, but I will say that these guys are both practicing very hard,” said Morris. “Lee has done a great job. I’m not going to sugarcoat the fact that we have not rushed Trueblood back because of how well he is playing. But Trueblood is a fighter. I’m certain that he wants to get back on the field as well so we’ll have to see.

“I’m going to sit down with Coach Mangurian and Greg Olson and figure out who is going to be the starter this week. We usually do that today after Thursday’s practice leading into our Friday practice so we go out there with the mentality of who is going out there first.”

    It's funny how some (just a few) tend to down Morris on his communication. Think he's just feeding us coach speak, and some have even accused him of being unaware, or even ignorant of, "the way things are." Looks to me like when this man says he wants the best 53 he means it. I haven't seen competition at every position like this on a team in I can't remember when. And I don't think anyone has their finger on the pulse of their team like this coach does. No free rides.
