Dallas Vs Tampa Bay
December 18, 2011 by staff
Dallas Vs Tampa Bay, In an eight-game skid, Raheem Morris’ Bucs have been outscored 256-134. If that average of 32 points allowed were multiplied by 16, they’d allow 512 points in a season, third-most ever.?
They came to plead his case. They came to defend his name. They came to protect his back.
And, as is so often the case with the Tampa Bay Bucs, they failed at that, too.
Raheem, it appears you are on your own.
This was the plan, wasn’t it? The Bucs were going to go onto the field Saturday night, fueled by prime time and bright lights, and they were going to bring evidence that Raheem Morris was the coach for them. On national television, they were going to fight for their coach, by golly. They were going to quiet the critics, stop the noise and end the debate.
Well, that settles that.
And your honor, the prosecution rests. Soon, it seems, the execution will, too.
As far as any lingering debate over Morris, this should just about do it. How can the Glazers not demand more than this?
Argue, if you will, that this team was just too young, or that the owners were just too cheap, or that the roster had more holes than spackle to patch them all. All that noted, there isn’t enough improvement to this roster for Morris to keep his job. This team is lost. It does not have enough maturity, or enough resilience, or worst of all, enough effort to stay on this wayward course.
This was too ugly for human eyes, and where have you heard that before except every week for two months? The Bucs made it close with a couple of scores in the third quarter, but that doesn’t change things. The players of the Bucs provided a rather weak argument that Morris should keep his job — or that they should keep theirs. They lost for the eighth straight time, a number that should climb to 10 over the next two weeks, at which time the unraveling should be complete.
This is how a team defends a beleaguered coach? This is how it demonstrates how important he is to them?
By fumbling on the fourth play of the game?
By giving up 28 points in the first half?
By making one first down on its first four possessions, while Dallas was piling up 19?
By surrendering more than 30 points for the fourth time in five games?
By playing with such little effort that Cowboys Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders accused the Bucs of quitting, the third time this year someone has done so?
By not picking up your second first down of the night until the 4:46 point of the third quarter?
