Raheem Morris deflects questions about job security



Raheem Morris knows that with a 1-12 record, his job status will be questioned by many.

But when the subject came up during today's press conference, Morris was adamant that he isn't spending much time obsessing about his future.

"That is not my job to worry about my future," Morris said. "That’s for mentally weak people. My job is to coach the football team, week in and week out. I have to go and beat Seattle. That’s what I have to do. And then I have to go and beat the following team after that. Job security in this business, in case you haven’t looked around, there is a ticking clock every day.

"If I wanted to worry about that, I wouldn’t be coaching. I’d go be a reporter."

Of course, reporters don't have much job security these days given the state of the newspaper industry. But we get his drift.
