    It’s nice to see someone is happy about Raheem Morris 2.0.

    1. 1.1


      Wow, I totally forgot that Raheem Morris was a 56 year old, seasoned NFL coordinator and former college head coach when he was promoted. I also forgot how Raheem had lead one of the best defenses in the league the year prior. These situations truly bear a close resemblance….Amazing.

    Great… Stocker loves him. “The web designer loves him!” … How about Jameis though out this whole process? Haven’t heard a word from him?

    Stocker still has plenty of playing time in him. No doubt our offense will be better. Lets stay focus on the Defense that needs a lot of help in players and the coaching. Go Bucs!

    Lets face it, who out there is a better candidate? Stocker is right,is this about having at least one side of the ball progressing. The big hire now is D.C..

    Frickin’ AWESOME!! This move makes so much sense! Here are some reasons why I think Dirk will work :

    Continuity on offense.
    Familiarity with the roster and the locker room.
    Familiarity with this division.
    Accessible and accountable to the press(and liked.)
    Strong communicator of his vision.
    He doesn’t make excuses or use cliches.
    His players LIKE him and perform to PROVE it!!!
    NFL experience and plenty of it.
    NOT a retread or experiment.
    Wears a VISOR!

    Now about that defense…
