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?
