As a Bucs fan, given the rumors that they're turning the team over to Raheem Morris, I see the situation as thus:
1.) Glazers felt the franchise was stagnating - and they wouldn't be wrong on this one. The team is starting to resemble the Dungy squads that were just good enough to make the playoffs and get knocked out in Rd. 1 without a whimper.
2.) Gruden & Allen didn't have a plan they liked to rebuild the franchise.
3.) Glazers see Mike Tomlin (young former Bucs assistant) succeeding in Pittsburgh and don't want to see Raheem Morris leave the organization the same way.
