A day after he kicked defensive tackle Brian Price out of a game for a committing a personal foul, a decidedly more tranquil Raheem Morris discussed his thought process behind the decision.
"Price is somebody I expect so much from because he's probably the best D-lineman we have," the Buccaneers coach said during his Monday media session. "We cannot make those type of mistakes and he has to be an example-setter. I kind of forced him into a leadership role, probably more than he's ready for at this point. But it's got to start with somebody, and it's got to start with probably your best football player, and he's definitely in the light."
"We can't make those mistakes. We cannot do those things, and he knows," Morris said. "I didn't even have to talk to him, I just had to look at him."
Easy with the dignity talk, Ron. Your players were involved with the scuffle, too.
