Punching wholes in the “Tampa Two is outdated defense” talk, and what coming up this week on bucstop.com

I’m reading from some of the local outlets insinuations that the Tampa Two defense is an old defense, one whose time has past it by. They will point to Monte Kiffin’s hapless Dallas Cowboys last year who set a record for feable defense on a record level. They will point to the last time the Bucs ran the Tampa Two under Kiffin, (incorrect on two counts) the Bucs were giving up...

Im sure some will say the 1999 humiliating (and record breaking) defeat to the Oakland Raiders belongs here, but the Bucs were in the middle of a record 6 game winning streak, you can...

Bucstop.com’s Video of the Day: The Day Raheem’s Team grew up in Seattle

The Bucs were under heat…they were 1-12 and both Offensive and Defensive Coordinators had been fired. Raheem Morris seemed over his head, But the team was behind their coach 100%. Josh Freeman looked like the real deal, and the defense was showing signs of playing better, but the Bucs were still losing. Then, in Seattle, the Bucs put it all together and shocked the world.

Lovie will have open checkbook for Free Agency

Raheem Morris coached the Bucs at the wrong time. The Glazers were riddled with debt from the ill-timed purchase of Man-U as well as still paying Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen their salaries. Times have changed. Man U is a big money maker now like everyone said it would be and the Glazers have deep pockets once again. Tampa Bay was left in fairly good cap situation by former GM...

Should Redskins switch back to 4-3 defensive scheme?

The cramming of a square peg into a round hole, which has been the Redskins attempt at a 3-4 defense, has the opportunity for change now that a new regime has been put in place. As of now this is mere speculation, but the choice to retain Jim Haslett as part of the coaching staff, with defensive backs coach Raheem Morris waiting in the wings should Haslett be released, leaves the...

Redskins Expected To Keep DC Jim Haslett & Raheem Morris

He was a part of Gruden’s first staff while they were with the UFL’s Florida Tuskers, so he...

Lovie Smith better prove it's okay to love the Bucs again

TAMPA, Fla. -- This must be right. This must be different than what happened after a hope-for-the-best hire (Raheem Morris) and a you're-not-Chip-Kelly-but-you-will-do one (Greg Schiano). This must be a home run, and not the inside-the-park variety. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have lived in the Land of the Irrelevant far too long. Frankly, that's inexcusable in a league where...

If its time to lean, its to a new regime

Give the Bucs credit, they did not fold up or quit. They played until the end, they played with heart, and they believe in their coach. No Im not talking about the 49ers game, Im talking about every blowout loss the Bucs had during Raheem Morris' final year in 2011. Bucs got spanked by Dallas, Atlanta, several teams actually; but they never quit and scored enough points to make...

Seattle is a stark contrast to the Bucs since 2009

There was an excellent and true article the other day showing how the Bucs could be just like last year's Kansas City Chiefs, who were 2-14 with pretty much the same cast and crew that has them 8-0 this year.  The biggest change is the Head Coach, and a serviceable QB. But if you really want to see a stark contrast, look no further than the team the Bucs face this weekend...
