At halftime of the Bucs 31-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night, NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders said the Bucs had quit on coach Raheem Morris.
At the time, Tampa Bay trailed 28-0, had only first down and had yielded 60 unanswered points dating back to the loss at Jacksonville Dec. 11.
But Bucs tackle Jeremy Trueblood disagrees with Prime Time's observation, noting that team played better in the second half, outscoring the Cowboys 15-3.
“Basically, he doesn’t play for us. He’s an outsider looking in,'' Trueblood said of Sanders. "Great player, but that doesn’t mean he knows exactly what’s happening in our locker room and on our field. You know, you respect what people have to say, but you don’t always have to agree with them.
“We wouldn’t have done better as the game went on, so I don’t really find any merit in that at all. The offense started playing better toward the end, if we had quit, that wouldn’t have happened.’’

The fact that neither Romo, nor Deion laughed after the question is the most impressive part about the video. They are serious about who is getting in their butt's, and that nobody is too big to get in.

Lets all hope this 2011 season can be remembered for one thing: Lessons learned by the Glazer brothers who own the franchise. Fans who watched the car wreck disguised as a football game last night want to blame it all on Raheem Morris. Morris is too nice of a guy to take all the blame. He is responsible for his share, no doubt. His players, the same ones who were the 'best team...
It’s nothing like putting your coaching job on the line. Coach Raheem Morris is not running from all of the criticism and skepticism with his team out of the playoff race.
His plan is to beat all of the other teams remaining on the schedule this season, especially, if they have playoff aspirations. With Josh Freeman finally healthy, he wants to end the Cowboys season by beating...
Aqib Talib has a trial looming in March for felony assault with a deadly weapon and injuries that have cut each of his last two seasons short by about five games. But there is no reason to think the shutdown cornerback will be shut out of One Buc Place in 2012. At least not according to coach Raheem Morris, whose future also is in doubt following eight straight losses. Talib, 25...
BY ROY CUMMINGS The Tampa Tribune TAMPA – Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris has a code he asks his players to live by. The first two words of it are “play hard.’’ For the third time this year Sunday, Morris had to admit his players didn’t…

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, both Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris and Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo are safe for now. LaCanfora indicated that if the Rams and Bucs decide to fire Morris and Spagnuolo as their current head coaches, it won’t come until the end of the season. From the looks [...]
During Saturday’s game, I saw the cuts to Mark Dominik in the box with a set of binoculars, but hadn’t noticed he was wearing a coach’s headset. Apparently he was and some people have made a deal about it. The Times took a second to debunk it.
Dominik has always watched games from the box and wears a headset because he assists Raheem Morris with determining when to make replay...

Yes, we have had some horrible coaches here in Tampa Bay, but who do you personally feel was the worst coach?
I have not included Leeman Bennett, as that would make this too easy.

When the Bucs on Monday placed cornerback Aqib Talib on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury, it was more than just a routine transaction. Although it was rather apparent Talib might be headed to I.R. given his inability to play for most of the past three weeks, there’s a bigger context here.
Talib’s season-ending injury could be the first in a series of dominoes to...

It’s that time of year. My least favorite time of year, Christmas. The days of youthful excitement for the holiday have been replaced with the dred of cramped malls and in-laws. Although I ***** and moan this time of year I still appreciate and applaud those who do the extra things to make those less fortunate have a better holiday. PFT, ESPN, and others...
