Tampa Bay Buccaneers Amp Practice Between Preseason Games

Bucs’ head coach Raheem Morris cranked up mid-week practice by getting vocal in the mix while pushing all to max during rotating snaps. It was his way of addressing seven penalties and mental mistakes against Miami last week.
Morris was quoted on www.Bucaneers.com after the vigorous workout.
"We're a hungry, talented team out there competing, and today I wanted to up the tempo in order for us to think when we get a little tired," said Morris. "They came into the game playing smart like you have to do, but once you get tired you start to do silly things. So I upped the tempo a little bit today with these guys, and they did a great job doing that, putting them into a game and making them have to think. We really coached a lot about tempo today."
Some fans have complained that Morris has been too soft in training camp. The increased tempo drained players at a point when they were fatigued. Defensive tackle Carlton Powell said, "Now, that was a practice."
