    He should give every penny he made back just because of that stupid Revis trade

    Who needs 10,000 SF? Now that we have empty nest we don’t even use half of our relatively modest house. I’m mostly in my 150SF Bucs Room.

    Good for Coach Schiano. He never got a true shot here and was stuck with Raheem Morris holdover QB Josh Freeman. Between the immaturity and adderall problem that was in the locker room with “leaders” Talib and Freeman (to name a few), I was surprised the Bucs fired him. Cream rises to the top and now the guy has a national championship and was responsible for getting a number of defenders drafted in the first round in last years draft. I am sure he will go on to be a winner.

    A lot of the media turned on Schiano because of the Freeman-MERSA, debacles, neither of which were Schiano’s fault.
    Freeman wasn’t his choice but I really believe he would have wanted to have kept him if he had not remained being the party boy and least studious QB on the team.
    Schiano couldn’t tolerate immaturity, least of all from his QB and supposed team leader.
    His last draft really produced some solid players but passing on Luke Kuechly for the safety was a bonehead move. Of course we will never know if that was a Dummynick or Schiano move. imagine a LB corp composed of Lavonte David and Kuechly.
    A lot of people wanted to blame Schiano for Freeman’s regression but no one was responsible for that other than Freeman.
    As for MERSA. a lot of the media jumped all over that but MERSA can be found in very sterile environments like hospitals.
    A lot of the media didn’t like him and unfortunately, a lot of times, our owners seem to listen to the shrill voices if the media.
    Unfortunately. like Lovie Smith, Schiano’s choices for asst. coaches was less than stellar.
    If there was one piece of advice I would give any prospective coach that would be to hire the most qualified and skilled position coaches you can get your hands on.
    They are the actual ones who will help develop your players and teams.
    See Tony Dungy coaching tree.

    Great post drdneast. I couldn’t agree more. Also remember Schiano was hired very late and didn’t have much to pick from for a coaching staff.

      I agree. He never had a decent shot when he got here with the party mentality of the players, A QB who was already done and a dishonest media attacking him.

    The man I believe should have given morew time. Remember fans alot of coaches that come from the college ranks learn over time. I hope the Glazers will give the new coaching staff time. Iam looking to the Bucs future.
