Raheem Morris Proud Of Young Team's Win Against Browns

Yes it’s just one game, and sure, it came against the Cleveland Browns, but that doesn’t mean that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can’t or shouldn’t be proud of the resiliency they showed during their 17-14 triumph on Sunday afternoon. Head coach Raheem Morris, who at one point was rumored to be on the hot seat during his first season at the helm, knows that there’s still lots of work to be done by his young team. But he’s still pleased with the strides his team has made and is looking forward to getting back to work with them this week.

“This team is not going to take a bow for a win, but they’re not going to take a backseat, either,” Morris said. "We really enjoy the wins, and you want to get them, but we’re not going to get our first win and get all giddy and be all excited. … Our job is to go get better and get ready for our next opponent.

“That game is over with. We have to move on to Carolina. … It’s not a time to go down Dale Mabry (Highway) and throw a parade for us. We appreciate it, but we won’t be throwing a parade on Dale Mabry today. We want to get some more wins around here.”
