Thank You Glazers for coughing up the dough for Morris

By

Morris gets two years extended onto his contract at $2million per season.

The Bucs went from Worst to First in 1979 going from 5-11 to 10-6. In 1997 The Bucs also went 10-6 from 6-10 the year before. Just recently, the Bucs bounced back from a 5-11 record in 2004 to achieve an 11-5 turnaround the next year. All that is nothing compared to the greatest turnaround in franchise history; Going from 3-13 to 10-6, and the architect has been brought back for further planning. Even more amazing is the group of players Morris did it with; youngsters barely out of college, some not even drafted. Players take off other teams practice squads, rookies starting all over the place. No team EVER has had a winning season starting 10 rookies. There were times 7 or 8 rookies started in a single game. During the season, Morris motivated his troups by pounding his chest a little and proclaiming the Bucs to be the best team in the NFC. Of course it was based on loss record, but Morris knew his team would play like it if they knew he meant it. How much of a turn around is it? Well in order to beat it next year, the Bucs would have to make the NFC Championship game, without suffering a single loss! It should also put some rest to the Glazers are cheap, or at least be the beginning of it. This ownership group has always spent the money needed to keep its core group of players, and there is no reason to not believe it wont continue to do so. Raheem Morris has two more years added onto his contract, while Jon Gruden will still get paid for 2011 season no matter what happens with the labor agreement. That says it all as for how our owners feel about their latest hire.
