Setting the record straight on Raheem Morris' comments



There's been a little buzz this morning about something Bucs coach Raheem Morris was perceived to have said in Sunday afternoon's press conference (no, not that naughty word, which he did say).

Morris was quoted in some places, including Peter King's popular Monday Morning Quarterback on, as saying this about the Carolina Panthers: "I can take getting beat by a better football team. I wish they were."

We took a closer listen to the audio recording this morning and it appears that's not what Morris actually said. Here's the excerpt based on our recording:

"I can take getting beat by a better football team. Which they were. Make no mistake about it."

These kinds of statements can become fodder in opponents' locker rooms, so we wanted to make sure it's portrayed accurately.
