08:03 AM ET 12.12 | Change is likely coming to Tampa Bay -- and, now, it may just be a matter of how much. Frankly, if the goal is to ever sell another ticket, it is time to do something. ... The stands are emptying, and the fans are restless, and this team looks as if it would lose to the 3-13 team of 2009 by 14 points. So what are they going to do? We'll see. But I have to be honest. When [Raheem Morris] took 23 minutes before showing up for his news conference, I half expected an interim head coach to walk in instead. Keep this in mind, however. They fired Jon Gruden after he lost only seven games in the regular season. They fired Tony Dungy after he lost only seven games in the regular season. Morris? He has lost seven in a row. And counting.

Just keep 'em together for this week...

We need all the advantages we can get.

You should tear 'em up. I'm more worried about the Giants having a let down after last night.

When in doubt, fire everyone. Promote stability. Where's that dang panic button when you need it?

Yeah I like it fire everyone and hire a new coaching staff by putting a want ad in the Tampa Bay Times

It is next to the Easy button from Staples.

Seems like they were scrapping the barrel when they signed Haynesworth.

"Wanted top fantasy football owner to run the Tampa Bat Bucs"? Yeah I think there might be a few people turn up

Last seasons last place schedule had them finish 10-6 so expectations may have been more than what was realistic. It does seem like they have quit on their coach.

Last season he was the hot item...Josh Freeman has regressed & Mike Williams looks unmovitated

That is going to take one hell of a housekeeper. That franchise is a major league mess. In fact, name one Florida based team that isn't.....

I'd say the Miami Heat look to be in pretty good shape

Freudian slip? Yup, the barrel is scrap now.

If you live in Tampa your entertainment dollar goes farther at Busch Gardens than it does at Raymond James.

Just wait until next Sunday, Tampa will feel much better about their team as they will see 60 minutes of scrappy football decided by a kick or poor clock management.

I wonder what the hell the disconnect is between this season and last season's ten win performance. Seriously, is the team that different?

That's the million dollar question. Just look at Josh Freeman? What the hell happened? He went from a budding star to a bozo that makes one stupid desicion after another. The defense is a joke. After yesterday, I say fire the whole coaching staff.
