Imposing Your WillAugust 11th, 2012
One thing cool about the Bucs of not-so-old was with Mike Alstott and a beat-down defense, the Bucs simply dictated how the game would be played.
That’s exactly what Greg Schiano wants the Bucs to return to: smashmouth, in-your-face offense and a smothering defense.
In the first test of the New Schiano Order, Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman gave the exam a passing grade.
“All day, all day,” Freeman said about how the Bucs wanted to impose their will on the Dolphins. “Coach has talked about how great teams run the ball in the red zone. We definitely did that. It’s good to see us go for it on fourth down and put it on the offensive line and see them and LeGarrette [Blount] get the job done.”
This is the type of team Schiano wants. It’s the type of team Bucs fans have pined for after years of Chucky-and-duck offense and that steaming pile of hot mess from last season.
