Too soon to declare mutiny against Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano
TAMPA, Fla. – This seems like a good spot for a mutiny. What could be more appropriate on a winless team that features a pirate ship in the end zone and a taskmaster head coach one star calls “Hard Core Schiano”?
The chatter this week in the NFL is not about if the scowling Greg Schiano is going to be made to walk the plank here, but how soon. He said too little about the MRSA outbreak that got Lawrence Tynes tied to an antibiotics line. He was alleged to have rigged the captain’s vote that unseated quarterback Josh Freeman from that leadership role. Even the new star, Darrelle Revis, was reported to vent about the coach’s hard-charging ways. The Bucs are 0-2, and Schiano has become as much of a cartoon villain as Bucco Bruce.
Unfortunately for those who smell blood in the water, the sharks are going to have to circle just a little longer. The storyline doesn’t match up with the reality. At least not yet.
“You guys are trying to throw the kitchen sink at us,” Bucs offensive tackle Donald Penn blared as he stood outside his locker Wednesday. “You’re trying to bring us down. It shouldn’t be like that. We’re good. I talked to Revis. He’s good. I talked to Josh. He’s good. We are unhappy we lost the last two games, that’s it. I love my head coach; I love all my teammates. We’re fine.”
