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.

Graham, Garcia nuts

I like Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Earnest Graham. He's a great story, watiing three seasons to get his chance to start at running back and then having a big season in 2007.

But Graham is not taking part in the team's off-season program and the word is he wants a new contract, a big, new contract. He's now represented by Drew Rosenhaus, so you knew that was coming. But let's face it, Graham is a nice complimentary player, not a star. He can't expect to be paid like one.

Then there's Tampa Bay quarterback Jeff Garcia. He's upset that the Bucs haven't asked him about a new contract. Should they? He's 38 years old. He can't possibly expect a long-term deal. Garcia has one year left on the two-year deal he signed last season. There's no way the Bucs will give him a long-term offer at his age. He has to know that.
