I know it gets hot in Tampa, FL, but Raheem Morris’s seat must be on fire right now. He wouldn’t be in so much danger of losing his job if it weren't for his success in 2010.
He showed the city and the front office what he could do with Josh Freeman, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished 10-6 and barely missed the playoffs last season.
The same Josh Freeman has started all but one game in 2011 and has thrown 12 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
The Buccaneers score the seventh-fewest points per game in the NFL, but this isn’t as troubling as the defensive side of the ball.
Morris is a defensive coach and should at least have his players performing well there.
Instead, his team allows the second-most points per game (28.5), ahead of only the Indianapolis Colts. It's also in the bottom seven in both rushing and passing defense.
The final nail in the coffin comes down to overall team performance. After starting the season 4-2 with wins over New Orleans and Atlanta, the Bucs have since lost seven straight games.
Their last two losses were ugly ones to Carolina (38-19) and Jacksonville (41-14).
Because of all this, Morris will soon be walking the plank.
