Morris wants better practices in 2010

Raheem Morris wants better practices in 2010 according to Pewter Report:

Tampa Bay head coach Raheem Morris discussed the Bucs practice habits, and acknowledged that they slipped during 2009 when the Buccaneers went 3-13. Bucs players also claimed that the practices were not good enough. As the Bucs try and rebound from a 3-13 season in 2009, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris is focused on getting his team to practice better. That started this past week when Tampa Bay held their first three OTAs (organized team activities) of the offseason. “The thing we talked about was our practice habits. They slipped a little bit as far as what we were used to and what we were accustomed to,” said Morris. “We got our new coaches that have come back into the building that bring those things up. We had [defensive backs coach] Jimmy Lake establish that the other day, talking about practice habits and preparation in terms of how these guys run to the football. It showed this week. He gave clear, evident examples of how it shows up and how it helps. “Timing and precision. It’s just mixing the new guys in the building and the new guys from last year, and mixing them with some of the older guys that we have in the building. It’s timing and precision with Josh [Freeman] at quarterback and receivers. It’s the linemen and their communication as far as protections. On defense you want them to fly around and establish their identity.”
