Default Rivalry Brewing Between Morris And Tomlin

Rivalry Brewing Between Morris And Tomlin

INDIANAPOLIS - Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is one of Bucs coach Raheem Morris' closest friends. Earlier this week, though, the two were talking about the possibility of becoming the biggest of rivals.

"We were actually talking about meeting in Miami at the Super Bowl next year and having a heavyweight head coaching boxing match, something the media wouldn't be used to," Morris said.

"It would be pretty funny if that would happen. We'd both love it to happen. It would be the first time in NFL history two head coaches were talking smack to each other on the podium."

Morris and Tomlin became close when the two worked as assistants for the Bucs between 2002 and 2005. Not surprisingly, Morris says he has adopted some of Tomlin's attributes.

"Mike Tomlin has a confident, profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltery swagger," Morris said. "He's always focused on winning championships. I have that same swagger. Now I've just got to go do it."

..... being DEEP behind enemy lines here in central Floriduh, I can tell you that the local media is banking-on Morris doing exactly what Tomlin has done in Pittsburgh, and that almost every article and/or TV interview about Morris mentions Tomlin, and their linkage to Dungy

He has that same swagger, now he just has to do it?
First off you need to get a team that can make the playoffs, lol. I hope he is in shape, because he is going to have to swagger quite a bit for a few years.

Seems like a good guy though.

When I watched Raheems news conference I thought damn he reminds me of Mike Tomlin. Same kinda attitude. They are probably much better off now then before.

I know that many of the current Pewter Pirates' (no-lie, that is what the Radio Voice of the Buccaneers calls them) roster & fans had grown weary of Chuckie's two-faced habits:
chucking-Chuckie was simply addition through subtraction.

I would like to see a Super Bowl between Pittsburgh and TB just to see these two guys match up against each other.

You that the NFC South is very inconsistent , Bucs had the playoffs in the bag and just let it slip through their hands at the end of their season. Morris should have success at with them
