Doug Williams Took The Extension

With his extension money, maybe Williams can buy pants that fit and don't make his belt do that.
It didn’t take Doug Williams too long to decide that sticking with a front office job in the NFL is preferable to sweating the sidelines of a SAC school.

“I weighed my options and realized the NFL is best for me at this time,” Williams said. “I like what I’ve seen from some of the young (Bucs) players, and especially the quarterback (rookie Josh Freeman).”

You’ve got to believe that either this is a contract that the Glazers don’t mind eating if they hire someone like Bill Cowher who will demand full control, or Raheem Morris is reasonably safe. A win on Sunday definitely secures Morris, and even a competitive loss would be enough. I think the Bucs have to lose big to keep Morris from getting the cane.

I have to say that I would like to see what happens with one more year. Morris seemed entirely out of his depth from a management perspective, and maybe that’s something you can learn with time and mistakes. On the defensive side at least seems like he knows enough football to get that part of the job done, on defense at the very least.

The question becomes is Olson the guy to get it done on the other side of the ball?
