You Can’t “Live Soft And Fight Hard”August 11th, 2012
In this Man Channel video (aka NFL Network video), Bucs icon Warren Sapp and Kurt Warner debate the way Greg Schiano is running the Bucs with an iron hand.
But there really is no debate, both future Hall of Famers love the New Schiano Order approach. Sapp gets particularly animated in his support for the Schiano way.
“You can not walk into a football organization and live soft and fight hard,” Sapp says.
Sapp went on to say the lines for the Bucs players are “clearly drawn on the floor. So when they do throw you those bones, they really react to you like, ‘Fellas, hey we going to pull it back today. Oh, coach. Ok, coach with us right now.’ You have to set it stern and then pull it back. Because if you go in soft, it’s over.”
Listening to Sapp, Joe thought back to how the Bucs reacted as if they just won a playoff game after Donald Penn caught a punt during minicamp, a challenge from Greg Schiano. Penn’s reward was the Bucs ending practice early.
Joe wonders what will be the next “bone” Schiano will toss his team.
