New Schiano Order Embraced By BucsApril 20th, 2012
From the moment Bucs fans read about on Twitter, and later saw on video, law-and-order Bucs coach Greg Schiano barking orders where to place toes while lining up for warm-ups, people knew a new era had begun at One Buc Palace.
It’s a New Schiano Order.
Gone are the days of rap music and backslaps and having feel good moments at practice. No, practice is for work, serious work, detailed work.
Thus far, per Woody Cummings of The Tampa Tribune, many Buccaneers are digging the new attitude of the New Schiano Order.
Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is one many players applauding Schiano’s forceful ways.
“There’s nobody complaining out here. You just deal with it and go about your business. What are we going to say? ‘I’m not doing it.’ Coach would be like, ‘OK, thanks for your services.’ ”
So too are LeGarrette Blount, Vincent Jackson and Ronde Barber applauding Schiano’s intense practices
One reason Schiano is going all Sgt. Carter is to weed out those who are not serious about football. Remember, just a few short months ago, many players tanked on jettisoned coach Raheem Morris. If one can stomach it, watch again the ghastly performance against the Dixie Chicks to close the horrid season, completing the heinous 10-game losing streak.
Already Tanard Jackson is gone. Joe suspects Dezmon Briscoe could be next.
It’s a new day in Tampa Bay. And the Bucs will likely be better off for it. Much better in fact.
