Revis Says Bucs Can Win “With These Coaches”December 6th, 2013
Joe can say from experience that Darrelle Revis is one of the smartest guys on the Buccaneers. He’s sharp, measures his words, and he’s been one of the most successful players in history on the business side of the NFL.
So Joe found it noteworthy that Revis gave what felt like an endorsement to the New Schiano Order last night.
Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network on WDAE-AM 620, Revis talked about how the Bucs’ final four games are all about 2014. It’s effectively next season right now, Revis said, and he believes the Bucs will win, can win, and their future rests safely in the hands of Greg Schiano’s staff.
“I know there’s a lot of Tampa fans that’s a little bit upset, you know, with the season and everything. Don’t get me wrong, as an organization we’re upset, too,” Revis said. “We’ll turn things around soon. I mean, the only thing I can say is in the future will turn things around and we’ll be better. We have to focus on these last four games. I think we gotta finish the season very strong because this is going to lead into next year, these last four games. So that’s how we have to approach it and that’s how we have to look. This could be the start of something great.
“As we grow as a team, as a defense, offense and special teams, and with these coaches, I think we’ll be fine in the future.”
Some might think Joe is overanalyzing here, but again, Joe is certain Revis wouldn’t have referenced “with these coaches,” if he didn’t want to include the staff in his warm comments about what’s next for the Buccaneers. Joe will also note that Revis was responding to a fan caller but was not asked about how the team will perform next season or even this Sunday.
Joe wonders whether Team Glazer is listening to and/or seeking player feedback from team leaders like Revis.
