The Buccaneers' defense is apparently moving back to wards its older scheme, the one that made them famous the Tampa 2.

There will just be a little more of a Raheem Morris influence That's what I'm planning to do." "It's funny. You were hired to be defensive coordinator two weeks before you were hired to be the head coach and you have some ideas and you've got your plans out there,'' Morris said Tuesday. "Why throw (linebackers coach) Joe Barry out there and let him try to fix it the next six weeks when you think you can I feel like it's my responsibility, I feel like I have to do it, I feel like it's what I'm supposed to do as a head coach and a man on this football team.
