Check out what Bucs head coach Raheem Morris said about his team and his new tight end, Kellen Winslow:

"Today, you saw a little bit of weakness as far as the mentality. We rode the emotional rollercoaster a little bit. I'll give you an example: Kellen Winslow … and we already talked about this so there's no talking behind my team's back or worrying about throwing anybody under the bus. But Kellen Winslow catches a pass, he's hyped up, he gets the crowd going, he can throw it down behind his back, spin it, get Flip [Jermaine Phillips] going, get the people around him riled up. But then he drops one, puts his head down and walks back to the huddle.

"That's the part of riding the emotional rollercoaster that we don't want to do. You've got to be the same. You've got to remain unwavered no matter what, no matter what's going on around you, your surroundings. You need somebody to pick him up. Nobody on our team should let him drop his head and he shouldn't think about dropping his head. That's a part about being a team, that's a part about going on to the next play and moving on, or one play becomes a bad practice. You need those good plays to keep it a ride and for people to take onto it.

Interesting story about his team and his player.

I am out this weekend, so I loaded up with a few extra posts today. I might find time to chime in at some point, but I might not. Enjoy the Hall of Fame game. First football game of note in the last six months. Crazy.
