Bucs Morris looks to be in trouble

TAMPA --There are 69 reasons why Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris is in big trouble.

 

That's the number of consecutive points Tampa Bay's opposition scored in the past two games without an answer.

 

Sixty-nine to nothing isn't good for the old resume.

 

It would be hard to imagine Morris coming back in 2012 after his team fell to 4-10 Saturday night when the Dallas Cowboys came into Tampa and dominated them from start to finish in a 31-15 victory. 

The Bucs have been one of the league's biggest disappointments this season, but nobody could have imagined it would have been this bad. Tampa Bay has lost eight straight games. 

Dallas took a 28-0 first-half lead to add to the 41 unanswered points the Jacksonville Jaguars scored against the Bucs last Sunday.

 

In the first half, Dallas had 19 first downs, Tampa Bay 1. The Cowboys had 279 yards and Tampa Bay had 55.

 

It was so bad that one has to wonder if Morris might not get fired Sunday, especially after rumors that he was on the verge of getting it after the Jacksonville loss.

 

Losing is one thing. Losing without competing is another -- especially at home.

Bucs Morris looks to be in trouble

I'M A STRONG BELIEVER (NOT ONLY CHRISTIAN) IN KARMA.  I AM A LOCAL TAMPA BAY RESIDENT AND STILL REMEMBER HOW THE GLAZER'S TREATED TONY DUNGY.  TONY GAVE EVERYTHING HE HAD TO THE BUCS AND WHAT DID HE GET?  HE GOT KICKED OUT OF ONE BUC PLACE AND HAD TO GET A SECURITY GUARD TO LET HIM BACK IN THE BUILDING BECAUSE THE "WONDERFUL GLAZER FAMILY" HAD THE CODE ON THE SECURITY SYSTEM CHANGED BEFORE HE HAD A CHANCE TO GET ALL HIS BELONGINGS OUT OF THE BUILDING.  
TONY DUNGY TOOK IT ALL IN STRIDE AND MOVED ON TO COACH THE COLTS TO A SUPERBOWL CHAMPIIONSHIP.  BEING THE "CLASS ACT" HE IS, COACH DUNGY NEVER UTTERED A NEGATIVE WORD TOWARDS THE BUCS ORGANIZATION.
IN REGARDS TO RAHEEM MORRIS, HE'S A NICE MAN BUT IN WAY OVER HIS HEAD TRYING TO BE A HEAD COACH IN THE NFL.  HE DOES NOT HAVE THE EXPERIENCE, MATURITY OR ABILITY TO TEACH HIS PLAYERS PROPER TECHNIQUE AND THE DISCIPLINE NEEDED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE NFL.  I BELIEVE MORRIS NEEDS TO GO BACK AND GET THAT EXPERIENCE AND THEN ONE DAY GET ANOTHER GO AT IT AND BE SUCCESSFUL LIKE MIKE TOMLIN, LOVIE SMITH, ETC.
AND TO THE GLAZER'S: REMEMBER WHAT YOU'VE DONE AND HOW YOU TRATED COACH DUNGY AND COACH RAHEEM MORRIS AS WELL.  YOU PUT MORRIS IN A NO WAY TO BE SUCCESSFUL SITUATION!  ALSO, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.  YOU ARE EXPECTING MORRIS TO BE A SUCCESSFUL HEAD COACH ON COORDINATOR PAY!  GET A GRIP AND GET AN EXPERIENCED HEAD COACH IN THERE THAT HAS DONE HIS TIME AND PROPERLY COME THROUGH THE COACHES SYSTEM (LINE COACH, BACKS COACH, DEFENSIVE SECONDARY COACH, SPECIAL TEAMS, COORDINATOR, ETC)!!  I RESPECT RAHEEM MORRIS BUT REALIZE HE HAS A LONG WAY TO GO AND MUCH TO LEARN BEFORE TAKING ON A GROUP LIKE BELLICHECK, TOMLIN, PAYTON (SAINTS), LOVIE SMITH, COUGHLIN, ETC.  I THINK MORRIS CAN GET THERE BUT HE HAS TO PAY HIS DUES FIRST.  LET'S NOT FORGET THERE WAS NOBODY MORE SUPRISED THAN MORRIS WHEN HE GOT THE POSITION HE HAS!  HE WAS A DEFENSIVE BACKS COACH WHEN GRUDEN GOT FIRED.  HE THEN WAS PROMOTED TO DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR (GOOD MOVE), BUT WITHIN DAYS NAMED HEAD COACH.  HE NEVER HAD A CHANCE AND SHAME ON THE GLAZER'S WHO MADE "ALL THIS POSSIBLE"!!!!!!

Please Make Him Leave

Raheem Morris should be run out of town as quick as possible. This team would still have a losing record in a division of Colts, Rams, Vikings and Bucs.
We Suck!

Your kidding right.  Morris was a terrible hire.  He was fortunate to have a last place schedule last season.  The Bucs didn't have one decent signature win in 2010.  It showed when he had tougher (not by much) schedule.  On 24 Dec 2011, The Bucs will take their rightful spot in the NFC South.  The Cellar as the Might Panthers Kick their butts AGAIN.

Morris will be back. Tampa players are not playing well at all, and besides the run game nobody on the tampa offense scares you. I believ morris will be back in 2012 but on a short leash.

The Bucs have no clue what's going on. There was offensive and defensive confusion the whole game. It's almost like the movie Major League where the owner gave up and stacked a pile of chit so they could move.  

Hard to be a Bucs fan right now.

Bucs Morris looks to be in trouble

He's just a little bit over his head due to his age.  He did a nice job last year but the fact of the matter is that you can't expect somebody without a long term track record of success to come in and build something from basically the ground up.  I'm sure you have your occasional outlier that defies this conclusion but in reality, 99/100 times, the young coach falls short. He should go down to the College level and take a high level gig, do work and then come back in 10-15 years and coach the big boys.

If Morris isn't canned after this game, then he needs to take Greg Olsen and give him his walking papers. 9 Blount rushes for a team that feeds off of him offensivly is horrible. You can't give up on the run game in the 1st qtr no matter what the score is. Heads will roll this offseason, if not sooner. I really though Raheem was on his way up. I expected a little bit of a downer season after I first saw the schedule, but didn't expect anything like this.
