Look For Bucs Starters In Second Half FridayAugust 23rd, 2012
Barring bizarre developments early in the Bucs-Patriots game on Friday, the New Schiano Order will march out its starters for the second half, so said Greg Schiano today.
Schiano noted that the Bucs had many issues moving the ball last week against Tennessee, which led to the Bucs defense trying to quash nine possession in the first half. Per Schiano, that amount of defensive work is typical of three quarters of a game or more.
But Schiano said, “If a game goes like a game should,” then the Bucs starters will come out for the second half against New England
The Patriots are also expected to give their starters extensive work after resting most of them, including Tom Brady, on Monday Night Football.
Joe’s biggest hope is that the Bucs continue to avoid slow starts under the New Schiano Order, as they did in the first two preseason game. It would be nice to see the Bucs starters come out for the second half leading or not trailing by more than a touchdown, a common happening last year.
