TAMPA, Fla. -- As we’ve told you many times before, Tampa Bay’s Raheem Morris can be very entertaining in an industry where most coaches go out of their way to be bland.

Morris was at his best Wednesday when offering high praise for New Orleans coach Sean Payton. Morris called Payton a “genius," but then went on with more detail.

“I love the guy,’’ Morris said. “Hate the coach.’’

Morris was smiling throughout as he talked about the coach he’ll face Sunday at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome. Morris said Payton has a way of speeding up the process.

“He’s made me older,’’ Morris said. “I got the job when I was 32. I’m about 46 now.’’
