Shortly after the last game against the Patriots, Buccaneers head coach, Raheem Morris, stated that he and the coaching staff had planned to approach this game without a game plan. With all the valuable time lost for evaluation of this young team, thanks to the lockout, I can’t say that I agree with the coach’s strategy. It’s uncertain what he was trying to accomplish, but I can imagine he was able to evaluate his young team from a very different perspective. Although it was a complete embarrassment for the Buccaneers, they had the opportunity to be educated from the exposure of their weaknesses. This Saturday’s game against the Dolphins, however, will demand more preparation and strategy. Offensive coordinator, Greg Olson, has been watching game film and taking time to study and prepare for Miami’s defense. This game could be the most important game for many of the players because three days later, all 32 teams must trim their roster down to 80 players.
