British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Post categories: Buccaneers. I made a whirlwind visit to the United States last week, spending one day with the New England Patriots before flying into Tampa for 24 hours with the Buccaneers.
So the Raheem Morris experiment is over. Schiano put the Bucs through the toughest offseason routine and conditioning program since Coach Perkins. So, what does it all mean this year?
Sixteen games will be played this Sunday. Black Monday is already looming, but everyone has to get through one last game before we get there. While some teams are scratching and clawing to get into the playoffs with everything riding on one last game, others have already been eliminated.
Long ago I wrote an article about why the Cincinnati Bengals would never be a championship team, even if they could load their team with all first-round draft picks. It was never about talent; the Bengals have always had great talent that was worth watching. I usually go to a few games a year even though I am not particularly keen on the Bengals because of their losing reputation, and I really enjoy watching Carlos Dunlap play, along with Andy Dalton and A.
Some people are fans of the Tampa Bay Bucs. This Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
The Buccaneers reportedly have reached out to free-agent coach Bill Cowher, to gauge his interest about joining the team. Coach Raheem Morris, following the biggest win of his game career, brushed off talk that the Glazers would dump him after only one season. So, basically, firing Morris after lining up Cowher would be no different than what the Bucs did to Gruden 11 months ago.
Despite Morris seemingly saying each week that the hammer is going to come down on discipline, penalties racked up just as bad today as they were two months ago. Turnovers killed the Bucs, many of which were thoughtless. Look, Joe has no idea what Team Glazer will do. No one but Team Glazer does.
If the 32 owners wanted to distract fans the way baseball did, they would probably take the following four steps. Allow their arrogant commissioner to bestow himself with unprecedented power without any real checks and balances. Oh wait, they did that!
