Raheem Morris' first season as head coach was a difficult and tumultuous one from beginning to end. Both co-ordinators were removed from their roles during the season, several big-name veterans were released in the off-season and the Bucs opened the year 0-7 including a loss at Wembley Stadium against New England. Josh Freeman went 3-6 as a starter after the bye week and although there were some brief moments of hope, it was a long season for Tampa Bay fans around the world to endure.
