Look For Bucs Starters In Second Half Friday

August 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.

    I thought the Dolphins game wasn’t a slow start. 2 good long drives that ended with TD’s.

    Keep the starters in until midway through the 3rd quarter. They need the work against a elite team.

    Scored a TD on our first offensive possession against the Phins. If that’s slow, what’s fast?

    If Gerald asks Mr. Brady to slow down so he can figure out where to line up this time, I want his a– cut.

    Gerald needs to make a play tomorrow night – just one is all that I am asking for. Whip the guard, get into the backfield and put your horns – not stick your hand out and grab – on a ballcarrier in the backfield.

    Anyone hoping for a win this week is disillusion. The Pats always beat us, and will continue to do so until the team builds more chemistry.

    @Charge – Think you need to re-read that last paragraph.
