Tampa Bay Buccaneers Notes, Quotes 2009-03-30
--The Bucs promoted Kurt Shultz to strength coach and coach Raheem Morris says he has his work cut out for him.


"How do we want to look as a team? I was lucky enough to go up and see Urban Meyer practice at Florida and I'm looking at Percy Harvin and those guys on the field work out and they're all ripped," Morris said. "I'm looking at all those guys running around, Louis Murphy and I'm going, "Wow, look at this team!' Then I look to my left and there's a bunch of underclassmen and they're all jacked up, all ripped. They looked like the guys from (the movie) 300. And I'm like, 'Man, I want our team to look like that.' I called them up and started stealing stuff from Urban. I am not afraid to be a thief."

--If you're wondering why Ronde Barber wasn't part of the purge of veterans Feb. 25, Morris provided some pretty good reasons.

"He's staying because he touches the ball and he scores touchdowns," Morris said of Barber. "I don't know any other corner in this league who has scored more touchdowns than Ronde Barber. I've seen him do it in bump, I've seen him do it in Cover Two, I've seen him do it in thirds, I've seen him do it in bonsai. I've seen him blitz. I've seen him rush the quarterback. I think he's the only 20/20 (sacks/INTs) guy, I'm not sure. He's got some juice left. At the end of the season, we had two guys lead the team in picks. One was Ronde and the other was Aqib. Two ends of the spectrum. So that's why Ronde's here."

--The Bucs' signing of Jets free agent place-kicker Mike Nugent may not sit well with incumbent kicker Matt Bryant. Bryant is coming off a career year in which he made 32-of-38 field goal tries.

"Matt Bryant has been a very good kicker for us," GM Mark Dominik said. "I talked to Matt and he understands it's a competition. I've made it very clear to him that he can win it."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We just didn't play well down the stretch. Raheem and I, when we got this opportunity, wanted to and we made some tough changes. But it didn't mean we wanted to suddenly become the youngest team in the National Football League." -- Bucs GM Mark Dominik.
