Schiano Says Smith Is Prototype Buccaneer ManOctober 29th, 2012
Lots of Bucs fans ask the question, “Where’s Michael Smith?”
Typically these fans are obsessed with the rookie running back’s blazing speed and/or they don’t see what Arrelious Benn brings to the table as a kick returner and would prefer the rookie get activated one Sunday and get good shot there.
The leader of the New Schiano Order was pressed on this topic by a listener this evening on The Greg Schiano Show on WDAE-AM 620. He responded by saying he thinks Smith’s time will come in some capacity –“he just needs to stay patient” — and praised the young man for being an exemplary “Buccaneer Man.”
“Michael is really a good football player,” Schiano said. He’s “a hard worker … all the things we’re looking for in a Buccaneer Man.”
Schiano also spoke with similar love for Myron Lewis, sans the coveted “Buccaneer Man” label.
