Bucs’ Head Coach Proclaims Tampa Bay as NFC’s Best

If Bucs’ head coach Raheem Morris has it right, the Cardinals will have their hands full with the best team in the NFC this Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.  “We’re the best team in the NFC.  Yeah, I said it,” Morris proclaimed.  Morris went on to explain his reasoning as follows: “You are what your record says you are.   Right now, we are tied for the least amount of losses [Tampa Bay has a 4-2 record], and that makes us the best team in the NFC.”  Well, okay that is technically true, but c’mon man.  Few would agree, including Morris if you could get him to be honest, that the Buccaneers are the best team in the NFC.

Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official website apparently spoke with a few members of the Cardinals to gauge their reaction to Morris’ claim.  “That’s his opinion,” Darnell Dockett said.  “He’s the coach of their team and maybe that can boost his team up.  We are coming off a loss and I don’t feel we are the best team in the NFC.  We are trying to work.  We are trying to be the best team in our division so I know I’m not going to say we are the best team in the NFC.  Right now we are in second place in our division.”

Dockett does well to turn the focus back to the Cardinals’ situation rather than Tampa Bay’s position in the league.  Arizona doesn’t need to play the best team in the NFC to have a rough go of it right now.  The Cardinals have a lot to figure out on offense, not the least of which includes determining whether Max Hall is healthy enough to play this Sunday after suffering a concussion against Seattle.

I will of course address these and other issues in the Wednesday weekly game preview.

  1. […] the Bucs?  Surely, they aren’t the best team in the NFC as their head coach Raheem Morris claims.  In fact, they surely aren’t the best team in the NFC South.  They may not be the second […]
