Per Mike Freeman of CBS, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers spent Sunday Night and today talking to people in the organization about head coach Raheem Morris, ostensibly trying to establish whether they should keep Morris as the head coach. This according to an agent representing one of the Bucs' players, speaking to Mike Freeman.

This is what the Bucs have always done and what smart teams do: they deliberate and take their time to make sure they're making the right move before moving on. Tony Dungy was fired the Monday after his final playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, which occurred on a Saturday. Jon Gruden was fired over two weeks after their season-ending loss, which arguably hurt the Bucs' ability to find quality assistant coaches at the time.

Ultimately, I'd be shocked if Raheem Morris isn't fired today. Ten straight losses and many negative records should be reason enough to terminate Raheem Morris' contract. The Glazers have surprised before, however, and they could surprise again.
