Morris admits Bucs aren't NFC's best anymore

The Buccaneers played fairly well but lost at Atlanta Sunday. They’re now 5-3 and behind the Falcons, Saints, Giants and Packers in the NFC standings. So where does their confident head coach think they rank now?

“We can’t say we are the best team right now,’’ Morris said. "We do not have the least amount of losses, so that would not be an accurate statement by me this week.’’

Touché.

The Bucs had a chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter, but LeGarrette Blount’s off-right-tackle run on fourth-and-one near the goal-line was stuffed. Two rare Josh Freeman interceptions (he has a total of just five picks on the season) had put the Bucs behind the eight ball before that. So had their inability to keep Michael Turner in check (each and every one of Atlanta’s 130 rushing yards on the afternoon seemed to be a productive, field position-shifter).

"They're a good football team, make no mistake about that," Morris said. "We were big-time resilient against a big-time team."

Yeah and there was some bad playcalling on offense to blame.

On one of Freemans picks, the tackle and guard blocked down leaving a big hole for the UNBLOCKED defensive end ( Bierman, I think ) to get a free run and hit which caused the pick

THen, on fourth and ballgame, you call timeout....comeout with some fake handoff misdirection BS>>>>>

How about just diving the 255 QB behind DAVIN JOSEPH to get at least teh FOUR FREAKIN INCHES


It was an exciting game, and the Falcons earned the win.....kinda funny that Tampa took another kickoff to the house against the Falcons.....

This guy Andy Benoit is an idiot. He writes as if the Bucs didn't have the Falcons right where they wanted him.

      "The Bucs had a chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter.."

They had 4th and G from the 1 after a bad spot on 3rd and 3 with a chance to GO AHEAD 28-27. They came up with key stops after turning it over and key throws by #5 and the team was in position to take the lead. This team is for getting better and better so if you don't want to respect TB now then you should prepare yourself Andy. Keep doing what you're doing Raheem. Just make sure you replace Ruud in the draft next year.


Big Gator Balls that was a good playcall. Have you not see Blount run this year lol? He is fully capable of getting a yard. The Freeman sneak should be put in as well though. Next time that may be the call. Both those guys are trucks so they can pick and choose. The ATL guy just made a tackle this time.


GO BUCS!
