Penalties A Concern According To Morris

Another aspect of the Buccaneers game that must be cleaned up is the number of penalties Tampa Bay has committed as of late. The Buccaneers has committed 23 penalties for over 200 yards in the last two games, and now have 44 on the season. Head coach Raheem Morris knows that won’t translate into many wins.

“The one’s we can control obviously we have to go out there and do a better job,” Morris said. “The offsides, the illegal procedure, those things can be handled in a walk-through, they can handled in discipline as far as on our practice field in our facility. We will handle that stuff in-house.

“We had a couple of uncontrollable one yesterday. The playing hard one by Sean Jones (15-yard unsportsmanlike) that got misconstrued as a personal foul. Those are some are some of the ones I kind of look at and say, ‘I don’t want to slow that man down.’ But you have to do some things to taper those some of those things.”

The frustration of the game boiled over to the sidelines and in the second half Morris himself was flagged after a verbal altercation with the side judge official.

“I got one to yesterday,” Morris said. “Whether it was right or whether it was wrong, I think it was a misconception. I think we kind of figured that out at the end of the day, me and the official over there talking…it was an emotional moment or him., and I told him it shouldn’t have been an emotional one for him, just for me. I was simply just stating the fact of what their guys were doing. I think it was kind of misconstrued the wrong way and he threw a 15-yard penalty.”

    Raheem I am growing tired of your concerns. How about do something about it. Take action or where is the personnel leadership to kick someone *censored* to get them in gear. Supposedly this roster is littered with former leaders at the collegiate level.-
